    I Get That A Lot

    CBS has launched a show called “I get that a lot.” The show is pretty much like Punk’d on MTV, but celebrities will pretend like they are normal working people. Take a look at these video clips. They are pretty funny!

    RIM BlackBerry Rules the Market

    by

    This morning I just had discussed with Tar (a friend of mine in Bangkok) about iPhone versus BlackBerry. Which one is better or is the winner? Tar admitted that he is now rooting for the iPhone resort. So do I declare that I am taking on BlackBerry side… hahaha. We kept debating to each other. I admitted that I did not like any other BB’s models except the Curve. I do like the fact that iPhone offers more applications. But, for personal purpose of use, I still want to pick BlackBerry over the iPhone. I think there are a few things that I cannot live if I have to use an iPhone. But for Curve, it suits me well at this point.

     

    Anyhow, to backup my vision and thoughts, I decide to blog  about how well BlackBerry is doing in the market now. The news has confirmed that Research in Motion (RIM)’s BlackBerry is the one to beat.  Yeahh…!

     

     

    International Data Corp’s Mobile Phone Tracker data puts Research In Motion at more than half of the smartphone marketshare for the first quarter of 2009: that 55.3 percent share compared to a 19.5 percent share for Apple’s iPhones. That’s a dramatic surge from two quarters earlier, when BlackBerry devices hung on to 40.4 percent and Apple had 30.1 percent, according to IDC.

     

    A recent survey by Yankee Group revealed that of 41 percent of Americans who planned to buy a smartphone for their next phone, half were planning on a BlackBerry — is versatility. Sure, BlackBerry phones have reliable features and an entire app store, BlackBerry App World. But where iPhones and other flashy smartphones are often tethered to one wireless carrier in the United States — iPhone is exclusively AT&T, for example — all of the major carriers support at least one BlackBerry.

    New Strain of Swine Flu in Brazil

    by

    Hmmm.. this is not good. The swine flu started to create a new strain. The fox news reported that the scientists uncovered the new strain after examining samples from a patient who was hospitalized in Sao Paulo in April. The 26-year-old, who developed flu symptoms after returning from Mexico, has since made a full.

     

    The variant has been called A/Sao Paulo/1454/H1N1 by the Adolfo Lutz Bacteriological Institute, which compared it with samples of the H1N1 swine flu from California.

     

     

    But.. don’t panic just yet. It was not yet known whether the new strain causes more severe infections than the current H1N1 strain. So.. BE SAFE!!
