PS3 Playstation 3 Price in malaysia

Recently i've read in CHIP Magazine. The price of PS3 have been quoted at around RM1700.

true or not i'll check back with the magazine.

Video playback on Google Android: Is that all?

Does it strike anyone else as odd that Google has left some basic capabilities to third-party Android developers? Video playback in the day where multimedia is king seems like such an obvious application to perfect and include on a platform with a lot to prove, yet the only video-related application the T-Mobile G1 sports is a YouTube application.

That makes perfect sense, YouTube having been bought by Google and all, but what if the videos you want to see plain haven't been uploaded yet?

Thankfully, the Android add-on Video Player reliably fills a basic role by playing MPEG4 or 3GPP videos (H.264 and H.263 standards) from the SD card. It is, however, very light on the controls, with just a pause button and forward and backward advance and no extras on the Menu button. Android Market developer Jeff Hamilton also states in his specifications that videos need to be 480 by 352 for proper playback. We were able to convert, load, and play back 5-minute and 45-minute videos without a hitch.

TuneWiki, which I wrote about yesterday, is more of a replacement for the music player, though it also enhances basic YouTube functions when music videos are the focus. TuneWiki will attempt to sync lyrics to the music video and will save videos for repeat playback and karaoke practice.

So far, these options are slim when compared with other mobile platforms that offer fuller management features out of the box.

Hi guys, it's been a long time since I've updated this blog, yeah right 2 days.

Do you remember when you apply for an affiliate program, they give you a site with your name on it. the time before Adwords, you have to do the hard work to market and get traffic.

Here is one example, do they really make money online?

the funny thing about this site is, they put this in a very simple way -

* Results not typical. You may not
do as well.

No offence, but upfront, the company surely has made that real sale from the subscriber and wannabe businessman.

my personal opinion, business like this, may not work so well these days

How to Take Your Eyes OFF the Screen/Monitor?

Probably this has become a number one problem thesedays. "Please take me away from my computer...!". You can sit for hours in front of the pc/laptop surfing the internet and let precious times flies. Time just fly when you sit in front of the laptop, suddenly its getting dark outside.

Hmm. seems like a problem here. We are missing out on the bright shiny - lunch in the park, playing in the field and socializing during teh tarik time - TTT, 3T (whatever you call it) or just Nge-Teh!

Worst case, we prefer not to bring the family for a trip during weekend, just to do some internet browsing and marketing. I did not buy newspaper anymore. A local newspaper will cost me RM1.50 perday, so every month 1.50 for 30 days (some paper during weekend, priced more) so RM45.00.

I pay for internet connection permonth RM68.00 / celcom 385kbps (getting better now)

That is RM23 more than buying newspaper. But I can get to read news from all over the world and actually reading 3 - 5 different newspaper, local and international(not to mention blog)

I miss the smell of freshly printed papers, but I enjoyed reading more.

This is one of the common reason why we go online everyday. (Still, the main question is still not answered, How to Take Your Eyes of the Screen/Monitor?


Just take the time off to rest, go outside and get some ice cream or eat some cendol, go cycling, play badminton (use the gate or fence as the net (or pretend there is a net in front of you, imagine the line approximately your chest height..LOL), play with your kids, 'timbang' the takraw rattan in your limited porch area, wash your aquarium, get to the kitchen and cooks some chocolate bread or muffins, or just prepare a healthy meal.

If you are married, your wife will start nagging at you. I get this all the time as the hour past. I must stop. I must limit myself only for the most two hours with this laptop. you must limit your time too.

Its better to get a good night sleep than staying up and watch the new video on you tube.

Enough internet marketing, take some time to rest. Your body will send you signals. be alert and respond to it.

Green plants makes the eyes more refresh. Go Green in the office too, because, at least 5 quality hours is spent in front of the monitors. not to mention myspace and frienster or updating blogs. Itsprohibited during office hour.

Can looking at the monitors for hours hurt your eyes? Yes it does!

Eyestrain and your computer screen: Tips for getting relief

(this tips is from website)

Your eyes hurt. Your head aches. And there you sit, peering at your computer monitor. If you're one of the many people who use computers every day — either for work or personal use — you may experience eyestrain as a result.

Eyestrain: Signs and symptoms

Common signs and symptoms include:

Sore, tired, burning or itching eyes
Watery eyes
Dry eyes
Blurred or double vision
Headache and sore neck
Difficulty shifting focus between monitor and paper documents in your work area
Color fringes or afterimages when you look away from the monitor
Increased sensitivity to light
Eyestrain associated with computer use isn't thought to have serious or long-term consequences, but it's disruptive and unpleasant. Though you may not be able to change the nature of your job or all the factors that can cause eyestrain, you can take steps to reduce the strain.

New habits can help relieve eyestrain

A few simple adjustments in how you work or surf the Internet can give your eyes a much-needed rest.

Follow these simple tips to reduce eyestrain:

Take eye breaks. Throughout the day, give your eyes a break by forcing them to focus on something other than on your screen. Try the following exercise: Hold a finger a few inches in front of your face; focus on the finger as you slowly move it away; focus on something far in the distance and then back to the finger; slowly bring the finger back toward your face. Next, shift your focus to something farther than eight feet away and hold your eyes there for a few seconds. Repeat this exercise three times, several times a day.

Change the pace. Try to stand up and move around at least once every hour or so. If possible, lean back and close your eyes for a few moments. At the very least, try to give yourself a five-minute rest every hour. Do other work, such as phone calls or filing, during this time.

Blink often to refresh your eyes. Because many people blink less than normal when working at a computer, dry eyes can result from prolonged computer use. Blinking produces tears that can help moisten and lubricate your eyes. Make a conscious effort to blink more often.

Consider using artificial teardrops. Available over the counter, artificial tears can help relieve dry eyes that result from prolonged sessions at the computer.

Practice relaxation. Ease muscle tension with this relaxation exercise: Place your elbows on your desk, palms facing up; let your weight fall forward and your head fall into your hands; position your head so that your eyebrows rest on the base of your palms, with your fingers extended toward your forehead; close your eyes and take a deep breath through your nose; hold it for four seconds, then exhale. Continue this deep breathing for 15 to 30 seconds. Perform this simple exercise several times a day.

Get appropriate eyewear. If you wear glasses or contacts, make sure the correction is right for computer work. Most lenses are fitted for reading print and may not be optimal for computer work. Glasses or contact lenses designed specifically for computer work may be a worthwhile investment.

Put your workstation in order

Take some of the strain off your eyes by making sure your desk space is set up in an appropriate and eye-friendly way.

Adjust your monitor. Position your monitor directly in front of you about 20 to 28 inches from your eyes. Many people find that putting the screen at arm's length is about right. If you need to get too close to read small type, consider increasing the font size.

Keep the top of your screen at eye level or below so that you look down slightly at your work. If it's too high or too low, it can lead to a sore neck. If you have your monitor on top of your central processing unit (CPU), consider placing the CPU to the side or on the floor. And if you wear bifocals or trifocals, keep in mind that you may have a tendency to tilt your head backwards so that you can see through the lower portion of your glasses. To adjust for this, consider lowering your monitor a few inches or buying glasses designed for computer work.

Position your keyboard properly. Place your keyboard directly in front of your monitor. If you place it at an angle or to the side, your eyes have to focus at different distances from the screen, a tiring activity.

Keep reference materials nearby. Place reading and reference material on a document holder beside your monitor and at the same level, angle and distance from your eyes as the monitor is from your eyes. This way your eyes aren't constantly readjusting.

Check the lighting and reduce glare. Bright lighting and too much glare can make it difficult to see objects on your screen and strain your eyes. To check glare, sit at your computer with the monitor off. This allows you to see the reflected light and images. Note any intense glare. The worst problems are generally from sources above or behind you, including fluorescent lighting and sunlight.

If possible, place your monitor so that the brightest light sources are off to the side, at a right angle to your monitor. Consider turning off some or all of the overhead lights. If you need light for writing or reading, use an adjustable desk lamp. Close blinds and shades and avoid placing your monitor directly in front of a window or white wall. Use a glare-reducing screen to minimize glare from overhead lighting.

Finally, adjust the contrast and brightness on the monitor to a level that's comfortable for you, making sure the letters on the screen are easy to read.

Also wipe the dust from your computer screen regularly. Dust on the screen cuts down on contrast and may contribute to glare and reflection problems.

If problems still persist, it could be a sign of a more serious problem. See your doctor if you have:

Prolonged eye discomfort
A noticeable change in vision
Double vision
But if you're like most people, making a few simple adjustments can help keep your eyes rested and ready.

another Kindle?

but this one is without wirepess connection - $749 Electronic Reader Lacks Wireless Connection; Not As Good As The Kindle

Tricia Duryee
Friday, September 26, 2008; 2:07 PM

This week, iRex Technologies started selling its first device?the iRex Digital Reader 1000S?but at $749 it is a disappointment and doesn't stack up to rivals, including the Amazon ( NSDQ: AMZN) Kindle or the Sony ( NYSE: SNE) Reader, reports USA Today. The devices are increasingly trying to target the business segment, who travel a lot and and want to eliminate some of the paper they carry around.

Some of the cool things about the iRex are better than the Kindle, such as the 10.2 inch display, and the fact that it comes with a digitizer and stylus, allowing people to be able to make annotations on the screen. But the big draw-back of the iRex is that it costs an additional $100 for a wireless version ($849). And still, the wireless version only includes Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, which provides access to newspapers and other content through a downloading service.

That differs drastically from the Kindle, which uses a cellular connection, so that users have access to new books and content when they are within range of a signal. Last week, at GigaOm's Mobilize event in San Francisco, everyone pointed to that feature as the beauty of the $359 device. As people noted on a couple of different panels, Amazon did a great job of hiding the complexity of the network. Because the cost of data is tacked on to the price of a book, customers don't have to be conscience about connecting to a network, or wonder how much the download may cost. Most won't ever know they are connecting to Sprint's ( NYSE: S) wireless network.

Apple iPhone Vs Google's T-Mobile's G1

ok, so there is new competiton now for iphone. Th ebiggest threat, emm..maybe a threat, (they are new in mobile/cell phone business) is the new Google's T-Mobile's G1.

It was on the main page of news, the stories goes;

Hands-on impressions: T-Mobile's G1, the first Google phone

Watch out, Apple. The G1 may not be as sleek and sexy as the iPhone, but its peppy, easy-to-use touchscreen interface makes mincemeat of all the other iPhone wanna-bes, and it packs in some killer features—like 360-degree Street View—that the iPhone has yet to match.

Granted, I've only had a few minutes of hands-on time with the T-Mobile G1, so this doesn't count as a review—we're just talking first impressions here. But first impressions count, and the G1 ($179, available October 22) scored big during my brief test drive. (Click here for full specs and details on Tuesday's announcement.)

So, let's talk about the hardware first. As I mentioned in my initial post, the G1 is slightly bulkier and heavier and—well, let's just say it—a little uglier than the slim, sexy iPhone. Weighing in at 5.6 ounces, I could definitely feel the G1's extra bulk in my hand, although at just 0.6 inches thick, the G1 should fit relatively easily in a jeans pocket.

The G1's 3.17-inch screen is slightly smaller than the iPhone's 3.5-inch display, and at first glance, its interface looks a bit dull compared to Apple's red-hot handset (and unfortunately, my shaky photography skills don't help). But beneath the G1's sliding display, we get a surprise—a full, Sidekick-sized QWERTY keypad, perfect for those who don't want to deal with a touchscreen keyboard. There's also a trackball, a Home key, and physical Call and End buttons.

While the G1's main screen isn't quite as eye-popping as the iPhone's, the Android-powered display was surprisingly responsive—a quick flick of my fingertip opened a windowshade of applications, while tapping the status bar at the top of the screen instantly revealed e-mail, SMS, and voice-mail alerts. Indeed, tapping and scrolling around the G1's various menus was a seamless pleasure, akin to what you'd expect from an iPhone. And while leading iPhone competitors like the Samsung Instinct always felt a bit sluggish to me, the G1's peppy interface responded quickly to my every touch.

Of course, you'll get the most out of the G1 if you're using Google's suite of online applications, all of which sync automatically the moment you sign in. The push Gmail client features threaded messaging, just like you'd expect online, and you can star messages, organize them with filters, and even conduct Google searches within the e-mail client itself. You can also use the client to check your POP and IMAP accounts—no full-on Exchange syncing, but as I mentioned in an earlier post, third-party developers are free to create their own Exchange syncing apps for Android.

The G1's dialer and contact list immediately grabs all your online Google calendar info and contacts—and for those with IM accounts, the G1 will indicate which of your contacts happen to be signed in for chat, an "online presence" feature familiar to anyone with a Helio phone. As with the iPhone, you can flick your contact list with a finger, spinning it roulette-style. Nice.

The Android Web browser on the G1 immediately takes its place as one of the top mobile browsers I've seen, right next to those on the iPhone and Nokia Nseries handsets. Pages rendered quickly (over Wi-Fi, at least) and perfectly; a tap brings up zoom in/out controls, while a touch-enabled magnifying glass lets you quickly scan lengthy Web pages. (No multitouch-enabled "pinching," however.) See a picture you want to save? Just touch and hold; a contextual menu pops up with a variety of options, including saving the image to the phone.

Coolest of all, though, is Google Maps on the G1, complete with GPS and Street View. In the demo I saw (over Wi-Fi), maps loaded quickly, as did Street View images, and they refreshed almost instantly as I dragged maps and images around with my finger.

The best part? Using Street View with the G1's built-in compass. Say you're facing north; you hold the G1 in front of you, select Street View, and you'll see your street from a north-facing vantage point. Turn east—with the phone still in front of you—and the Street View image follows. Angle the phone skyward, and Street View moves likewise. Way, way cool (and impressively fast and responsive, to boot).

Disappointments? Well, the G1's music player is no great shakes; it'll play your standard MP3/WMA/AAC/Ogg Vobis files, but the bare-bones player interface can't hold a candle to the iPhone's. (At least you can buy MP3s wirelessly using the bundled Amazon application.) Also, there's no video player—then again, as T-Mobile reps kept repeating, there's nothing stopping third-party developers from building one (or many).

And while the G1's three-megapixel camera tops the iPhone's 2MP shooter, the G1 doesn't come with built-in video recording—although (yep, you guessed it), third-party developers should feel free to fill the void.

Indeed, the T-Mobile reps I spoke to said that any and all of the G1's main features are open to third-party development—the dialer, the e-mail client, the music player, you name it. Again, that's the beauty of the open-source Android OS (versus Apple's we-must-control-everything approach).

Of course, the G1's biggest drawback may end up lying squarely with T-Mobile—or, more specifically, its nascent 3G network. When the G1 goes on sale next month, only about 21 markets will be covered by T-Mobile's new HSDPA network—so if you're outside those cities, you'll have to make do with poky EDGE data or Wi-Fi.

Overall, however, I'm pretty impressed. I wasn't that wowed by the G1's uninspiring design, but Android shows a lot of promise, and its peppy performance on the G1 is a huge plus.

So, who's thinking about snapping up a G1? Have any questions you'd like answered? Post 'em below.

Site Design Tips # Give you only 6 - Lah!

1. Write an attention-grabbing headline

Your headline is the MOST IMPORTANT part of your site!

Here's why: you have LESS than 10 seconds to get your visitors' attention, and show them you've got the perfect solution to their problem. So the first thing they should see is a headline that clearly states the biggest benefit your site has to offer.

Your headline should be located at the very top center of your page in a larger font size that naturally attracts attention.

And it should tell visitors exactly how your site will make their lives easier... save them money... save them time... provide additional income... or simply make them feel better.

Use bolding, italics, and highlighting to emphasize the main benefits in your headline, so they leap out and grab your visitors' attention.

(But don't overdo it! Nothing screams "amateur" more than a site that has too much fancy formatting.)

2. Create benefit-driven salescopy that compels your visitors to buy

On the Internet, you don't have any face-to-face interaction with your potential buyers -- so your salescopy needs to do the job that a real-live salesperson would do. It has to introduce your product, explain the benefits of using it, and sell potential buyers on the value of your offer.

When you write your salescopy, you need to speak directly to your visitors' needs -- and you need to focus on the BENEFITS of using your product (as opposed to your product's features).

If you're having trouble telling a benefit from a feature, here's an example: a feature of a product might be "sturdy polished aluminum construction." The benefit would be "lasts longer so you save money on replacement costs."

3. Follow established design principles

When you're designing the look of your site, choose a simple color scheme and a couple of fonts and stick with them. Nothing looks more amateurish than a mishmash of many different fonts and colors. Also, resist the urge to add textures or use dark backgrounds.

People don't come to your site to admire your elaborate design scheme. They want to know about your offer. That's why you need to make sure they can easily read your salescopy.

Also, avoid using unnecessary graphics and images. Unless your image is serving a direct purpose (a picture of you, a product shot, etc.), it's going to take attention away from your sales message. Same goes for animation, audio and video.

Remember: You're not trying to amuse or entertain with your site. Your goal is to SELL!

4. Include a strong call to action

Don't make your visitors guess what they're supposed to do on your site. You must give them a strong call to action and tell them exactly what you want them to do!

Let's say you sell a stress-relief product. Your copy might say something like...

"After doing research and testing, I found a set of really fabulous relaxation tapes that solved my recurring migraine problems, improved my sleep, and increased my energy level -- in just a few days!

Click here now to learn how they can soothe your troubles away and lead to a healthy and happy life."

5. Establish your credibility

Why should someone buy from you? What makes YOUR information more reliable than your competitors? You need to provide answers to these questions, so visitors feel comfortable buying from you.

One of the best ways to establish your credibility is to list your accomplishments, qualifications, and experience -- so long as they're related to your offer. Once you've sold some product and are getting testimonials from satisfied customers, be sure to include them on your site as well.

6. Make it impossible for someone to say no!

By building a lot of value into your offer, you can make people feel like saying "no" would actually cost them money! You can achieve this by carefully explaining how much money -- or time, or trouble -- your solution will save them.

At the same time you need to pile on the bonuses, so people feel like they're getting way more product than they're paying for.

How To Import Cars / Used Car From Japan D.I.Y

How to Import cars From Japan?

Here Are some of the things you should know..

an article i've extracted from

Step.1 Check Points

In order to import a car from Japan, you need to be familiar with Japanese used car import procedures, import regulations, money transfer methods and common trade terms. Below are some areas that you should research into as you prepare to import a car from Japan. Having a good understanding of the points below will make your business interaction with Japanese used car exporter more pleasurable.

1)Import procedures and government regulations
To ensure smooth import process, you need to understand the import procedures and government/custom regulations in the country of destination e.g. regulation on emissions, age of vehicle, steering, aftermarket products and vehicle test necessary before importation etc. In almost all countries, there is a set of rules and regulations that must be followed by importers of used cars. Acknowledging these regulations is the first step towards successful import of used cars from Japan.

2)Payment methods
Most Japanese used car dealers prefer TT (telegraphic transfer) money transfer method with the exception of countries that strictly use LC (Letter of Credit) money transfer method. While there might be dealers who accept credit card, most of the exporters do NOT accept credit cards. Please consult the used car exporter and your local bank about how to transfer the money.

3)Custom clearance
Do you have experience in clearing a vehicle with the customs? Once the vehicle arrives at the port, it will be your responsibility to take it from the port and perform custom clearance. If you are not in a position to clear the vehicle personally, you can hire a local dealer to perform custom clearance. Please familiarize yourself with the necessary steps to be followed.

4)International Commercial Terms
Trade terms or Incoterms are a uniform set of international business rules used commonly in international contracts for the sale of goods. They define the obligation of the buyer and seller at every stage of goods transaction. Below is a list of terms that will be common when importing a Japanese used car:

FOB - Free on board)
In FOB terms, the seller delivers when the goods pass the ship’s rail at the named port of shipment. The buyer has to bear all the cost and risk of loss or damage to the goods from that point. The seller takes the responsibility to clear the goods for export. FOB is only used for sea or inland waterway transport.

CIF (Cost Insurance and Freight)
In CIF, the seller delivers the goods when the goods pass the ship’s rail in the port of shipment. The seller pays the cost and freight necessary to deliver the goods to the named port of destination and also procures marine insurance. The seller is only required to obtain minimum insurance coverage. However, the risk of loss or damage of the good and any additional costs due to events occurring after the time of delivery are transferred from the seller to the buyer. The seller takes the responsibility to clear the goods for export. CIF can only be used for sea and inland water way transport.

C&F (Cost and Freight)
The seller delivers when the goods pass the ship’s rail in the port of shipment. The seller pays the cost and freight necessary to deliver the goods to the named port of destination. However, the risk of loss or damage of the good and any additional costs due to events occurring after the time of delivery are transferred from the seller to the buyer. The seller takes the responsibility to clear the goods for export. C&F is only used for sea or inland waterway transport.

Bill of landing
A bill of landing is issued by a carrier as proof for receipt of goods and acts as a contract of carriage. Bill of landing describes the goods, details of intended voyage and specifies the conditions for transport.

An invoice is a document sent by the seller to the buyer. The invoice contains a list of goods sold to the buyer. It shows the name and address of the buyer and a detailed description of the goods sold. It includes details of the product, quantity, Price, delivery point, charges and other significant details of the transaction.

Pro-forma Invoice
A Pro-forma Invoice is the first draft of a seller’s bill to the buyer. It is a quotation sent from the seller to the buyer containing description of goods to be delivered. It includes the product details, quantity, value, buyers name and address etc. Based on the Profoma invoice, the buyer decides whether to proceed on with the order.

Step.2 Inquiry

Use our search engine to search for used cars on the website. The Japanese vehicles are classified into to two categories; stock and Local Market Stock(LMS). After you have found the vehicle that you want, click on ask or request more information button to send the inquiry. You will be requested to register. Once you submit your inquiry, it will be dispatched to Japanese used car exporter.

Step.3 Negotiation
Once you have sent your inquiry, Japanese used car dealers will contact you via email or phone. However, you can also call the dealer for a faster response. The Japanese car exporter will furnish you with information about the Japanese vehicle you inquired on. Utilize this time to inquire from the Japanese car exporter about the condition of the car, price of the car and any other question that you might have regarding buying a car from Japan. All the prices on this website are FOB prices. Please ask the Japanese used car exporter for CIF or C&F prices if necessary.

Step.4 Payment
Once you have reached an agreement with Japanese car exporter on price and condition of the Japanese vehicle, the exporter will send you a pro-forma invoice followed by an invoice. The invoice indicates the quantity and price to be paid for the goods. You will be required to sign the invoice and send it to the Japanese car exporter followed by the transfer on of money as agreed on the invoice. Almost all Japanese car exporters will require wire transfer (also called telegraphic transfers or”TT”) with the exception of countries that must use”LC” only. Most Japanese used car dealers will not accept credit card means of payment. Please consult the dealer regarding method of payment and bank information.

Step.5 Shipping
After Japanese car exporter has confirmed your payment, he will arrange the shipping of the vehicle to the port of destination. The dealer will also send you necessary documents such bill of landing and vehicle de-registration form among other documents that will be necessary during custom clearance. Shipping period will differ from country to country depending on the availability of space in the vessels bound for various destinations among other factors. Once the vehicle has arrived at the port of destination, you will be required to follow custom clearance procedures in your country.

Paultan.Org explains Proton MPV Details


Overall shape is like the Toyota Wish but the rear section of the roof does not slope down slightly like the Wish to improve headroom for the third row.
Tail lamps use LEDs and have a vertical design extending from the top to down, unlike the Wish’s which do not extend into the D pillar. The tail lamps are slimmer at the top but curve out a little at the bottom, similiar to the Volvo XC90’s design. The signal lamps in the light cluster are positioned towards the top for better visibility. You can actually see this in the previously revealed sketch and the teaser video above.
There is a swage line on the side profile of the MPV.
Regular swing doors instead of sliding doors.
The spare tyre is installed outside under the chassis instead of kept in the car so that you can get access to it easily when the luggage space is occupied.

The peekaboo box revealed a two-tone beige interior, but sources in Proton say the colour of the interior has not been finalised. It may be either beige or grey.
Luggage space is not that great with the third row of seats in place, but can fit one large golf bag. This means balik kampung with 7 people loaded and luggage for 7 will be a challenge.
Second row splits 60:40 while the third row is a 50:50 split. The seats fold flat.
Interior roof height is designed to be quite decent to accomodate people who want to ride with songkoks and turbans.
The shifter uses a gated shift and is dashboard-mounted rather than mounted between the front two seats, a common modern trend with MPV-like vehicles.
The in-car entertainment is a 2-DIN unit. There are options for a DVD player with an LCD display for the movie mounted at the second row roof area. There is also an option in the future for GPS navigation.
The 2-DIN head unit is at the top of the center dash area below the aircond vents, and below it comes the air conditioning controls which are three knobs arranged in a triangle shape. Below that is the shifter.
There are aircond blowers for the second and third row situation at the top left and right of the cabin roof (near the grip handles). Proton source says after testing this produced the best airflow.
There is no armrest between the front two seats but the armrest is instead a fold-down type integrated into the seat itself.

The wheelbase of the chassis is estimated to be more than 2,700mm but less than 2,800mm. In comparison, the Honda Stream has a wheelbase of 2740mm, the Wish is 2,750mm, the Innova 2,750mm, the Livina 2600mm, and the Mazda5 2750mm.
The front suspension design uses MacPherson struts and the rear design uses a torsion beam to minimize suspension system intrusion into cabin.
The front end is designed, supplied and assembled as a single module for weight reduction and ease of installation to minimize QC problems.
The MPV is said to have very good crash safety design from Proton internal crash tests. A few MPVs will be sent for official crash testing and rating soon.

Kindle 2? Are we there yet?

this news was extracted from the best tech+gadget website, here goes, some clarification about amazon kindle 2

Amazon quashes new Kindle rumors

by Matthew posted on September 2, 2008 4:03 am

If any of you were really hoping the rumors of a Kindle follow-up this year were true, then I’m afraid you aren’t going to like this news.

Craig Berman, chief spokesman for Amazon was asked outright if Kindle 2.0 was coming soon by the New York Times. His response:

Don’t believe everything you read … There’s a lot of rumor and speculation about the Kindle. One thing I can tell you for sure is that there will be no new version of the Kindle this year. A new version is possible sometime next year at the earliest.

There have been two main rumors circling the Internet. The first being that there would be a follow-up Kindle very soon and another saying that Amazon were going to target students with a version of the existing Kindle. Berman quashed rumors of a follow-up this year, but did not mention a possible education version of the original appearing.

Read more at The New York Times

Matthew’s Opinion
The one thing you can state as not being a rumor is the fact the Kindle is here to stay. I think even Amazon must be impressed with its popularity selling an estimated 240,000 units already.

I have stated before that the Kindle 2 is going to be the tipping point for e-book readers really taking off. Amazon have tested the water, been successful and got loads of feedback. They can now put that new knowledge and experience into the Kindle 2 and they could have something as popular as the iPhone – if they get it right.

I think it would be a bad move to start releasing different versions just for students. Students want the best kit and usually have it before everyone else. They will want Kindle 2 just like everyone else, not Kindle: Student Edition. I hope Amazon just put all their efforts into Kindle 2 and look at releasing it worldwide more quickly.

Product Description

Manufacturer Description

The PowerShot SX100IS will inspire you with its with phenomenal 10x optical zoom... and so much more. There's the 8.0-megapixel CCD and Optical Image Stabilizer for shake-free shooting. Plus, the DIGIC III Image Processor with advanced Face Detection, Face Selector Button, and red-eye correction assure superb results every time. Auto ISO Shift and ISO 1600 make low-light shooting easy. The large Mode Dial lets you select Scene Modes or full manual control effortlessly.

PowerShot SX100IS Highlights

Packed with Brilliant Features in a Compact Body A new concept, the PowerShot SX100IS is compact and portable with streamlined controls. Take it everywhere, because inside is a level of photographic power that's truly impressive; 8.0 megapixels ensure deeply detailed images, giving you complete freedom to enlarge an image or any section of an image and crop it to your exact specifications.

With DIGIC III, your images boast superior quality, the camera operates at top efficiency, and battery life is enhanced. What's more, DIGIC III enables Canon's Face Detection Technology and red-eye correction to give you better, more true-to-life people shots. Simply press the Shutter Button halfway down, and the camera automatically pinpoints the faces in the scene and chooses the ideal focus point. The camera controls exposure settings and flash to keep every face looking bright and natural. Red eyes can be corrected during playback.

iSAPS Technology is an entirely original scene-recognition technology developed for digital cameras by Canon. Using an internal database of thousands of different photos, iSAPS works with the fast DIGIC III Image Processor to improve focus speed and accuracy, as well as exposure and white balance.

Powerful Zoom, True-to-Life Imaging The PowerShot SX100IS has a 10x optical zoom lens that makes it easy to get the inspiring, emotive close-ups that will make your images lasting keepsakes. This magnificent lens gives you the power to shoot distant subjects with razor-sharp precision and stunning lifelike color. So you can brilliantly capture a bird high atop a tree, a child's winning goal from across the stadium, or a school play from the last row. Plus, thanks to Canon's highly sophisticated Optical Image Stabilizer technology, even at maximum zoom every image is rock steady.

The PowerShot SX100IS is equipped with Canon's acclaimed Optical Image Stabilizer Technology that automatically detects and corrects camera shake--one of the leading causes of fuzzy or blurred shots. Even when zoomed in, you can get the steady, crisp, brilliant images you'll be proud to shoot and share. And Canon's Optical Image Stabilizer Technology is so convenient to use. It functions perfectly with or without a flash.

See the Image Beautifully with Wide Viewing Angle The camera's 2.5-inch LCD screen gives you the big picture, whether you're shooting, reviewing, or showing off your images. This high-resolution screen offers a crisp, clear picture and wide viewing angle to make shooting, playback, and using the camera's menu functions especially convenient. Clear and bright, it also features Night Display for easy viewing in low light. And the convenience of using AA-size batteries means that no special power adapters or chargers are needed wherever you go.

Canon Technology Maximizes Quality and Performance

Genuine Canon Face Detection Technology sets the focus, exposure, and flash automatically, leaving you free to compose a group, capture an unguarded moment, or coax the perfect smile. Plus the new Face Selector Button lets you select the primary face.

DIGIC III features Face Detection technologies, giving the you best possible results in any shooting situation. Face Detection AF/AE sets the focus point and exposure for the faces of your subjects. Face Detection FE adjusts the flash to correctly illuminate your subject to provide the best balance between your subject and the overall scene, eliminating the common problems of over- and underexposed faces.

Red-eye correction detects and corrects red-eye during playback. In unusual cases where red-eye is not automatically detected, it can easily be corrected manually during playback mode.

And new Face Selector AF enables you to lock on and follow a specific face. The selected subject is tracked wherever the face moves in the frame. Simply press the Face Selector Button; then the selected face is double-framed and tracked when the face moves in the frame.

Life doesn't give you second chances to capture special times. That's why the PowerShot SX100IS features ISO 1600 and High ISO Auto settings that reduce the effects of camera shake and sharpen subjects in low-light situations, giving you greater shooting flexibility.

Instant Creative Control

Easy-to-use Mode Dial with a wide range of shooting modes from fully manual to fully automatic, including Kids and Pets mode to capture fast moving objects.

Now you're free to concentrate on what really counts--your subject. With the large simple-to-operate Mode Dial, all you have to do is turn to the setting that best matches the scene you're viewing through the lens. The PowerShot SX100IS does the rest. It chooses the perfect exposure, aperture, and flash. Or if you want to flex your creative muscles, choose Manual Control and do it all yourself. You've got special Scenes Modes to handle a wide range of common shooting situations--effortlessly.

Competition hots up in local telecoms sector

THE competition within Malaysia's mobile space has turned up many notches over the past quarters and is expected to intensify further.

The biggest talk this time is the impending launch of DiGi.Com Bhd's third generation (3G) services and the implementation of mobile number portability (MNP) next month.

“DiGi has been very innovative in terms of offerings and marketing, therefore all eyes will be on DiGi late this year when it rolls out the 3G services,” an analyst said.

DiGi was the only mobile operator that did not receive a 3G licence or a WiMAX (Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access) operating licence.

However, it has since formed an alliance with TIME dotCom Bhd for the provision of 3G services.

Analysts said the much-anticipated liberalisation could shake up the whole mobile industry, shrinking customers' monthly bills and pressuring the profit margins of the mobile phone operators.

“With the increased competitive pressure, telecommunication companies (telcos) might lower the tariffs further to stimulate stronger call elasticity and be more innovative without pressuring their margins,” an analyst said.

With MNP coming into the picture, DiGi and rivals Maxis Communications Bhd and Celcom (M) Bhd are aggressively launching new services and promotions in the postpaid segment, hoping to retain customers and grab new ones.

“Although there could be a slight delay in the implementation of MNP, mobile operators have wasted no time. Mobile operators have repackaged and introduced new packages to entice customers,” an analyst said.

“The mobile market is showing a decline in growth, with operators focusing on the migration of customers from prepaid to postpaid. The implementation of MNP in the mobile sector could pave a growth path for the industry,” he added.

DiGi has recently launched four new postpaid plans – DG250, DG150, DG50 and DG20. The DG250 gives customers free local voice calls and text messaging to any network at anytime for RM250 a month.

Maxis Communications Bhd, which has been leading the very competitive industry with over 41% market share, has also repackaged its postpaid plans and introduced a new service, Hotlink 365, recently to cater to a segment of users with low usage.

Aseambankers Equity Research is optimistic on DiGi, as the mobile operator would have more potential to grow its postpaid segment when MNP is implemented.

Although U Mobile Sdn Bhd is a relatively new 3G service provider, the operator has managed to acquire 100,000 subscribers since its launch in April.

U Mobile chief executive officer Oh Kwang-Jin said the company was the only 3G operator in Malaysia that offered per-second billing across all its plans. “We want to keep our customers happy and we intend to continue to listen to them intently as part of our ongoing mission to provide the best value in the industry,” he said.

U Mobile now offers three postpaid plans. Although its coverage is centred in the Klang Valley, it is expanding its network to cover all major cities and towns nationwide.

OSK Research does not see any threat from U Mobile's newly-launched per-second billing prepaid plan on its competitors, although it believes the telco would have its niche appeal.

The brokerage said while U Mobile's prepaid plan offered the lowest charge at 0.8 sen per second, it would only be cheaper if calls lasted less than 24 seconds, whereas DiGi’s inhouse prepaid brand Happy, which is capped at 99 sen per call, would actually save more money for calls exceeding 125 seconds.

OSK said it was difficult for U Mobile to price its tariff too competitively, as it purchased wholesale minutes from Celcom at a higher rate.

On a different development, Maxis is said to be bidding the first right from Apple Inc to bring the iPhone into the local market.

Analysts said if Maxis successfully introduced the iPhone in Malaysia, the telco could gain an even bigger edge over rivals.

“If Maxis could secure the rights to bring iPhone in, it will be the perfect lure for mobile users to switch service providers. This will give Maxis access to a wider business user segment,” another analyst said.

As competition heats up and the date of MNP draws nearer, analysts expect more activities and roadshows by mobile operators in a bid to lure customers from competitors .

NEW York & Donald Trump

Donald Trump's name is synonymous with New York hustle and money at the turn of the 21st century. Trump started young in his father's New York real estate business, and by the 1970s had made himself a Manhattan deal-maker, somehow talking banks and city government into financing his ambitious developments. He built the grandiose Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue in 1982, and soon he moved into the casino business in New Jersey. Outspoken and flamboyant, Trump became a favorite of the press, and his multiple marriages and divorces were regular tabloid fodder.

(Trump was married to model Ivana Zelnicek from 1977-92 and to Marla Maples from 1993-99. He married his third wife, Slovenian model Melania Knauss, on 22 January 2005.) Trump went suddenly on the skids in 1990, finding himself over $900 million in debt and facing bankruptcy. But ever the dealmaker, he rebounded; by the year 2000 he was again worth over a billion dollars. He talked publicly about running for the U.S. presidency the same year, then decided against it. In 2004 he began playing the demanding boss-man in the hit NBC reality series The Apprentice,. ("You're fired," his ritualistic dismissal of the show's losers, became a popular catch-phrase.) His books include Trump: The Art of the Deal (1988), Trump: Surviving at the Top (1990), Trump: The Art of the Comeback (1997) and Trump: How to Get Rich (2004). ..

Extra credit: Trump's nickname is "The Donald"... Trump has three children with his wife Ivana: Donald Jr. (b. 1977), Ivanka (b. 1981) and Eric (b. 1984); he has one daughter with Maples, Tiffany (b. 1993); and he has a son with Knauss, Barron, born in March of 2006... Trump is famous for his objection to handshakes; a 1999 Time magazine article quoted him as saying "I think the handshake is barbaric... Shaking hands, you catch the flu, you catch this, you catch all sorts of things"...

August 20, 2007 -- DONALD Trump wants to try to whip the world's most famous trio of bimbos into shape and save their careers.

The Donald tells Page Six he's talking with Britney Spears about appearing on his upcoming "Celebrity Apprentice," and that Paris Hilton has also expressed an interest in being scrutinized by the mega-mogul. He's also planning to call Lindsay Lohan this week to see if she'd be willing to try to salvage her plummeting career on the show.

"We're negotiating with Britney right now. Can you imagine her doing it?" Trump told Page Six. "We're not sure what will happen. She's a [bleep]ing mess. And that little reality show she had did nothing. But she likes the idea of being on television and I think she'd be great." Hilton, he adds, "wants to be on, and we're thinking about it, but I don't know if we're going to do it."

And Lohan? "Another [bleep]ing mess. We haven't asked her yet, but I'm going to call her this week. It would a positive thing for her to do . . . for all of them," he says.

Hilton's spokesman, Mike Sitrick, said he wasn't aware of any deal but acknowledged that Trump and Paris's father, Rick Hilton, are friends. Reps for Spears and Lohan didn't get back to us.

In the meantime, Trump says he's already signed an eye-popping list of A-listers, B-listers and has-beens to be subjected to his notorious "You're Fired" treatment.

They include: Jim Cramer, Carmen Electra, Joan Rivers, Naomi Judd, George Foreman, original "Apprentice" villain Amorosa, Kimora Lee Simmons, Pete Rose, Dana Patrick, Tony Hawk and Jeff Gordon.

"There are more than a hundred others who want to be on the show," Trump said.

One big name who definitely won't appear is Rosie O'Donnell, who slung mud with Trump when she was on "The View." After Trump recently said he'd consider having her on, her rep shot back, "It will not happen in this lifetime or beyond."

In the celebrity version of "The Apprentice," the stars will raise money for various charities during the competition in which they vie to work for Trump.

How To Get More FREE Traffic.

TOP Three Strategies For Success With The Search Engines

If I had a nickel for every email I received from a customer asking how to get better results from the search engines, I’d have… well, I’d have a WHOLE lot of nickels!!

In fact, it seems I’m constantly being grilled about the latest, greatest strategies for driving the MAXIMUM number of FREE visitors to your site.

But honestly, I’m really glad so many of you are paying attention to the search engines…

… because you’re SEVEN TIMES more likely to get a visitor through the organic (free) search engines than through a pay-per-click ad!

You can’t afford NOT to spend as much time as possible improving your site’s overall search engine performance.

With that in mind, here are my TOP THREE recommendations for improving your free traffic using the search engines…

Search Results Strategy #1: Speak your visitors’ language

No, I don’t mean English, Spanish, or Russian!

When I say you should speak your visitors’ language, I mean you should use the exact words and phrases they use to search for your products or services!

I can’t TELL you how many times I see people building their sites around the words THEY themselves use to describe what they’re selling, even going so far as to optimize their sites using the name of the product!

Why is that a problem?

Well, let’s say you sell the "GutterClear 3000," a tool that comes in pretty handy to clean out all the gunk in your gutters without ever having to get up on a ladder.

Now, let’s say there are thousands of people out there looking for a really cool tool for hands-free (and ladder-free) gutter cleaning.

Do you think they’re all going to sit down in front of Google and type "GutterClear 3000"?

Not likely, right? Chances are, they’re going to describe what they’re trying to accomplish, or what problem they’re trying to solve ("gutter cleaning tool," "clean gutters without ladder," etc).

So even though you’ve got the #1 spot on Google for "GutterClear 3000," the product remains unsold, because nobody is using that word to find it!

And please, never assume. Use a good keyword research tool, like Wordtracker or Keyword Discovery, to be sure you’ve identified the EXACT words your potential customers are using to find you!

Search Results Strategy #2: Make sure your pages are search engine friendly

Once you’ve done your keyword research, and understand how your customers are searching for you, you can use that information to create a site that will appeal to the search engine spiders, which, in turn, will improve your rankings.

The higher your site appears on the results page, the GREATER the chances that people will click on it!

So be sure you use your keywords in your:

Title tag — This is the title of your site that usually appears in the actual search engine results. Search engine spiders often look at the title tag FIRST to understand what your site is about.
That makes the title tag one of the best ways to appeal to both potential visitors and search engines at the same time!

Headline and subhead — By including your main keywords in your headline and subheads, and wrapping them in tags, you’ll be tipping off the search engines that the site’s content reflects what’s in the heads and subheads, which is an SEO plus.
At the same time, by displaying your best keywords in the headline and subheads, your visitors will see that they’ve come to the right place the second they land on your page… and be more likely to stick around.

Salescopy — Because the search engines "crawl" your site looking for information about how to categorize your site, and also check to see how relevant your copy is, you want to make sure you include your keywords in the site’s copy.
But don’t get carried away! Search engines can tell when you’re cramming your site full of words JUST to get better rankings, and will penalize you for it… and you want to be sure your site actually makes sense to your visitors!

Meta tags — Your description meta tag normally contains the "blurb" that appears with the link to your site on the search results.
Your keyword meta tag contains your strongest keywords relevant to each page.

Neither of these, on their own, will be enough to improve your site’s rankings, but when done properly, they help give the search engines a more accurate ’snapshot’ of what your site is about.

Image (alt) tags — Search engines can’t "read" images, but they can read the text that you use to describe the images.
This descriptive text, called an "alt" tag, is one more way to add multiple strong keywords to your site, again increasing your overall chances of being categorized for that particular term.

Another way to use your keywords is in the way you ORGANIZE the pages in your site.

Make sure that all of the information or products on a page are related or relevant. The LAST thing you want to do is confuse the search engine spiders with a mish mash of words on any given page that don’t make any sense together.

At this point, it’s pretty clear that it’s the WORDS on your site that give you the overall competitive edge when it comes to your search engine rankings, so resist the urge to "fancy" sites by using Flash, tons of graphics, or other unnecessary elements.

The more clearly you spell out what your site is about by using your keywords, the better your chances of raising to the TOP of the results page!

Search Engine Strategy #3: Keep your site up-to-date

Like death and taxes, it’s INEVITABLE that your site optimization will change… and what’s working today may not get you ANY results three months from now.

That’s because, over time, people, markets, search trends, and even keywords change…

… so it’s crucial that you constantly monitor your top keywords, and make changes to your site as necessary, in order to maintain your dominant position in the search results.

You should be setting aside time every WEEK to make sure that you’re still optimized for the best keywords!

And if you CAN’T seem to find the time each week to do this, then consider hiring someone to help. Trust me: it’s an investment that should MORE than pay for itself with increased traffic and sales!

By following these three strategies for maximizing your search engine traffic, you’ll not only improve your search engine rankings, you’ll be able to send more qualified traffic to your site.
