Sireh Dan Cengkeh - Website launched!

Air-Car Ready for Mass Production - Build by TATA

This is good news, both for human being and our planet. The company that build boxy vehicle and lorry like German Tanks, Tata Motors of India is planning to build a cap powered by compressed air. Theoretically, it should be more environmentally friendly and should be a hit among eco-geeks around the world. Maybe the looks is not to anyone taste, but you bet I will buy this if it comes to our shore. Or a NGV-powered Hummer. Why eco-friendly cars have to look that ugly? Via Neatorama.

The CityCat model, shown above, has a range of 125 miles, and scoots around at up to 68 mph. Filling up is a breeze - either use a special air compressor at a gas station for about $2.00, or just plug it in for 4 hours at home.

Libur ke Kedah

Sejak berkahwin inilah kali pertama kami sekeluarga melawat negeri kelahiran arwah Walid - Kedah. Faktor masa banyak membantutkan pergerakkan kami sebelum ini. Niat hendak ke Yan, melawat rumah pusaka arwah Tok Habib. Kabarnya sudah semakin uzur dan tak berpenghuni. Jumaat lepas kami akhirnya ke Sungai Petani, ke majlis perkahwinan 2 anak lelaki Syed Salleh, abang arwah walid.

Seronok Haziq. Ramai geng. Eksen, panggil buat dono.

The man who owns the Internet

Kevin Ham maybe unknown to many, but he owns thousands of websites names. During one six-month period starting in late 2000, Ham registered more than 10,000 names.

"It's time to build out the virtual real estate," Ham says. "There's so much more value in these names than pay-per-click.". Read here.

Google Analytics New Version

Google Analytics have come up with a new Version. More user-friendly and easier to understand. I still prefer Reinvigorate and Performancing Metrics. While Reinvigorate is easy to understand & live tracking is available, Performancing Metrics no nonsense layout left so little to choose between them.

M'sia Security Commision list of Not authorized investment advice and/or fund management websites.

Internet investment is very shady and risky. I have encountered many kind of investment plans that guarantee maximum profit with minimum investment in a short time. For me, that's too good to be true. I know some of the schemes are genuine but I am old-skool, call me what you want but I prefer to know where the money actually come from and who is these people really are. I am more comfortable dealing with people face to face and not forced into making any decision that I am not 100% sure.

PosPay, Paypal versi Malaysia?

Bidang e-commerce di Malaysia semakin berkembang dan jumlah rakyat yang membuat pembelian melalui internet semakin meningkat. Cara pembayaran pula pelbagai. Bagi laman web luar negara, selain dari kad kredit, mereka mempunyai PayPal sebagai pilihan. Malangnya rakyat Malaysia yang ingin mengeluarkan duit dari akaun PayPal, mereka harus mempunyai akaun bank di Amerika atau paling dekat, Singapura.

PosPay boleh dikatakan PayPal versi Malaysia. Ia membenarkan pengguna membuat penbayaran dengan mudah. PosPay diuruskan oleh Pospay Exchange Sdn Bhd dan merupakan produk bersama antara POS Malaysia Berhad dan The Royal Mint Exchange Sendirian Berhad. Antara kelebihan Pospay,

1. Pengguna & penjual Tidak perlu takut dengan penipuan kad kredit.
2. Pengguna & Penjual boleh menggunakan semua bank utama.
3. Pengguna boleh kawal jumlah yang dibelanja.
4. Membayar bill utility.
5. Menambah-balik (reload) prabayar dari syarikat telekomunikasi.
6. Muat turun servis-servis telefon mudah alih.
7. Menaghantar wang ke pihak ketiga.

Untuk mendaftarkan akaun, sila ke laman web mereka. Untuk menambah wang ke akaun, pengguna perlu ke pejabat pos terpilih di Lembah Kelang & seluruh negara. Wang juga boleh didepositkan di pusat servis Pospay di Petaling Jaya & bank-bank terpilih. Kini PosPay mempunyai lebih 53 syarikat yang mendaftar sebagai ‘merchant’ dan 23 syarikat lagi di dalam proses menjadi ‘merchant’. Satu bonus sekiranya PosPay dapat berkerjasama dengan laman web e-commerce utama seperti Ebay dan Amazon.

Want a Joost Invitation?

Update: All will get one but becauseI will be away from my PC this weekend, I will send ya'll an invitation this Monday ASAP!

Joost is a new service that lets you watch TV on your PC, without the hassle of installing any hardware. Joost was the brainchild of Skype's founders Janus Friis and Niklas Zennström. It is an exiting service but still in beta stage. Everyone that want to download it need an invitation, either from fellow beta-tester or from Joost developer. I was awarded an invitation recently and anyone want one can contact me or leave their email add at comment section.

Random Photo of cute kids.
