One of my secondary schoolmate participated Nescafe Kick Start competition and manage to make her way into the final! As a sign of support, me and my friends will be attending the live broadcast of the final episode of Nescafe Kick Start Season 4! We decided to sit togather and make a banner!
Idea & Prototype:
We do feel like doing something like doing school’s group project. We are all tired…….
My dad always complaints about the iPhone that I bought for him is rather useless phone. This time he was complaining about the iPhone can’t send SMS from a PC. I decided to find a solution for him so that he will appreciate the iPhone. After some research, a project called aSMS is just the right solution.
After installing aSMS, my iPhone now send SMS from a PC which significantly increases productivity and typing speed. But still i find that the default template that comes with aSMS looks a little too basic.
I built a new set of templates utilizing Google reader’s rounded Edge method and with some fancy AJAX support, it work just like a great piece of software. But there is big flaw that I’ve overlooked!. It ain’t gonna work without WIFI. [faints]
Morale of the day is to make sure you pay full attention and effort on the requirement study, else you will ended up a product that has no practical application.
Everyday, I spent on average of 2 hours driving my girl friend to and back from office, and traffic conguestion is the number one hated event that everyone could understand. I always wanted to have a GPS device and a DVD Player in my car to solve my boredm, but those device are usually expendsive, and it doesn’t gives me that much of VALUE. Last week I came out with an brilliant idea of adding more fun to driving time.
Here is what I bought:
- FM Transmiter RM 35
- Phone holder that cost RM 15
- and IPhone
Shave/trim one end of the head phone jack to make it fit into your IPhone.
Place the phone infront of your screen and plug in the audio cable.
Find a clear frequency 89.90Mhz, tune in and we are live!!!

Here is a video in action!
From today onwards I’ll be watching various movie ranging from TVB, DL.TV, Revision3, MSNBC, Google TechTalk & Youtube (via Edge)! With a phone rings in, I can even put them into the super loud speakers for all my pessenger to
talk conference with
Another worth mentioning is about Audiobooks, I spent more time then any other activity to pickup new material while driving. This includes anything from real estate investment strategy, financial planning & strategy, personal development material and some other creativity interesting podcast.
I showed to some of my friend with this setup, some commented that it makes me look cheap. Oh well, yes it does… But Hey! it works! and it works very well!
After owning an iPhone, Steve Jobs has became one of my most admired leader. Today I bought an very expendsive super thin Fortune Magazine that talks about Jobs. The last time I read Fortune is about Google and this time Apple Inc.
This issue has an interesting section that talks about how Apple team works and how they deal with problems. The single and most favorable piece of information that I’ve got:
You can’t just ask people what they want, Instated ask them what they hate!
It is kinda surprised as I see changes towards my self morphing into diffrent kind of personality that cares about diffrent kind of “issue” than I used to care about before…
I always wanted to have spreadsheet on my iPhone, and I have been waiting for a long long time and it doesn’t seems anyone will develop it.
Out of the fustration, I decided to build a prototype my self with jiggyapp. Here it is! iPhone native spreadsheet app.
The primary motivation is to have a customizable calculator to walk around with me when I just need some financial calculator. …and Yup, it does support complicated formula expression!
Still alot of area to work with such as graphs, charts, format, style, import from MsExcel. I’ll see what I can do over the weekend.
You guys reading out there!, I like to have your comment on this little project, drop me message here!
I just stumble across this video from metacafe and finds it useful.
I wonder if i could build two strings so that i could triangulate the tripod eliminating the hotizontal shaking too!
Deliver a Presentation like Steve Jobs
When Apple (AAPL) CEO Steve Jobs kicked off this year’s Macworld Conference & Expo, he once again raised the bar on presentation skills. While most presenters simply convey information, Jobs also inspires. He sells the steak and the sizzle at the same time, as one reader commented a few years ago.
I analyzed his latest presentation and extracted the 10 elements that you can combine to dazzle your own audience. Bear in mind that Jobs has been refining his skills for years. I broke down his 2007 Macworld keynote in a previous column (BusinessWeek.com, 7/6/07) and in a chapter in my latest book. Still, how he actually arrives at what appear to be effortless presentations bears expanding on and explaining again.
1. Set the theme. "There is something in the air today." With those words, Jobs opened Macworld. By doing so, he set the theme for his presentation (BusinessWeek.com, 1/15/08) and hinted at the key product announcement—the ultrathin MacBook Air laptop. Every presentation needs a theme, but you don’t have to deliver it at the start. Last year, Jobs delivered the theme about 20 minutes into his presentation: "Today Apple reinvents the phone." Once you identify your theme, make sure you deliver it several times throughout your presentation.
2. Demonstrate enthusiasm. Jobs shows his passion for computer design. During his presentation he used words like "extraordinary," "amazing," and "cool." When demonstrating a new location feature for the iPhone, Jobs said, "It works pretty doggone well." Most speakers have room to add some flair to their presentations. Remember, your audience wants to be wowed, not put to sleep. Next time you’re crafting or delivering a presentation, think about injecting your own personality into it. If you think a particular feature of your product is "awesome," say it. Most speakers get into presentation mode and feel as though they have to strip the talk of any fun. If you are not enthusiastic about your own products or services, how do you expect your audience to be?
3. Provide an outline. Jobs outlined the presentation by saying, "There are four things I want to talk about today. So let’s get started…" Jobs followed his outline by verbally opening and closing each of the four sections and making clear transitions in between. For example, after revealing several new iPhone features, he said, "The iPhone is not standing still. We keep making it better and better and better. That was the second thing I wanted to talk about today. No. 3 is about iTunes." Make lists and provide your audience with guideposts along the way.
This is good stuff.
From the moment I was introduced to iPhone I fell in love with it and I wanted to own it so badly ever since! I dropped an order and finally got my new iPhone it by christmas! I bought this iPhone from US for about RM 2,000
Bangkok is the capital of Thailand, the 22nd most populous city in the world. I’ve been to thailand last month with my family for a trip. Bangkok is a wonderful place with un-understandable spoken and written language.
The first thing that amazed me right after I landed in Suvarnabhumi Airport is the arrival panel. I had this unusual feeling of seeing non latin characters displaying on a LED Panel.
There are many plane arriving and departing every hour, every day. This is the worlds 18th busiest airport in 2006.
