Am I reading this right? First, the aquasition of all free TV under Media Prima, then the merger of Sime Darby, Golden Hope. Is we going backward? I was just reading about a Sarawak tycoon plans to buy stakes in Nanyang Press Holdings Bhd and distribute it to the Chinese community. That's good. Then this. (update 2/12/06)
Mergers is not an alien practice in business. It does have it benefits. But newspapers? Do people want to read a monotonous and one sided reports? Oh, this must be the end of Malaysia journalism. I mean quality journalism.

The history (or drama, if you want to call it that) of Steve Jobs as a Silicon Valley entrepreneur is too long to list in details. (Okay, let’s list two: he built "blue boxes" or hacking devices that allowed people to get illegal free long distance phone calls which he then used to prank call the Pope and he once backpacked around India in search of philosophical enlightenment and came back with a bald head, and wearing traditional Indian clothing).

Other notable functions is the ability to mashup photo and video with maps and soo on. Although, I think the limited ability to customize the your site's look with a simple template editor (which Blogger have, for example) was it biggest letdown. User might find it troublesom to change it, especially those who do not understand programming.

Tahun ini, kami beraya di rumah atok di Sarang Buaya, Semerah, Batu Pahat. Selesai sahaja marhaban kenduri doa selamat di rumah pusaka Tok Abah kami beransur ke Bandar Baru Uda, rumah mertua. Oleh kerana keadaan Fadhilah yang sedang sarat, bergerakkan kami tidak selincah tahun lepas. Haziq bertambah ligat dengan kebolehan baru, berjalan tanpa memegang tembok. Sandle raya dia pun boleh tahan stylo.
Kami hanya beraya ke rumah kawan-kawan terdekat. Oleh kerana cuti panjang, ramai yang masih di kampung. Dan seperti tahun-tahun lepas, saat yang kami tunggu-tunggu, gambar raya kami sekeluarga.

Majority of major newspapers worldwide today have their own version of electronic newspaper. People are allowed to browse the latest news on their website, which is very close to the paper version. It is usually free but there are also some that charge user for a more detail and refine version on their electronic newspaper.
Apart from the usual news taken from news agencies, there is also a growing number of social networking website that allow user to submit news and hot topic to them, instead of relying on news agencies. These sites, such as Digg, Netscape and Newsvine are very popular because they did not only read the news but even contribute it to the website. This kind of website seem to be increasing popular with readers
Major daily newspaper
In Malaysia, number of users visiting newspaper’s website is increasing. The Star seem to be the most popular local news website, meanwhile for major Malay daily, there is not much differences between Berita Harian and Utusan Malaysia. This is only newspaper websites and did not include e-zines or news portal in Malaysia.
The reason? It easier to browse news on certain topic on the internet. And it's cheap, virtually free.
