Curving Through The EDGE

by

I would like to write a quick review on my BlackBerry Curve 8900 or Javelin. I have been using it for about two weeks now. I still cannot find anything that I don’t like about it. I absolutely love everything about it. I have been downloading several program and themes to pimp my Curve the want.

 

Here is a quick list of what I like or what I can do with the Curve:

1. I can online 24/7 on my phone.

2. Email, SMS, and MMS work like a charm.

3. I can fully customize on the ring tone.

4. Alarm clock is very useful – there is an option to choose not to alarm on the weekend (How smart is that!).

5. Speakerphone is awesome – loud and clear.

6. Media player and music player are not bad at all for the business phone. I can watch movies too.

7. I can watch YouTube through either Wifi or EDGE with no problem and delay.

8. I don’t have any problem with keyboard. It’s pretty comfortable for me.

9. Battery life is good. It can last for two day and I’m a heavy user.

10. The resolution on the screen is incredible. 

 

The list can go on and on… hahaha

 

Anyhow, the website that I found very resourceful and  useful is CrackBerry. If you have a BlackBerry, you definitely need to bookmark this website. Let me know if you have any question regarding Curve 8900!!

FAKE ATM Card Reader – Be Careful

by

This is real! I have read or seen pictures of this type of card skimmer, but that was from forwarded email. I know it is still happening in Thailand. It seems this kind of criminal incident happens everywhere! So, for those ATM card users, please be careful.

 

I found a story about a guy caught the ATM card skimmer attached before the real ATM card reader. This card skimmer will read your ATM card and record all the information into a flash memory attached in the back.  It happened at a local WaMu bank. Please see pictures below.

 

 

 

When inserting your ATM card to the machine, please be careful. If you see that it looks suspicious or it looks like the card reader is not belong there, contact a cop and notify that local bank immediately.

LEGO sculpture of the Nintendo DSi

Look closer… it’s LEGO! I have the Nintendo DSi exact color as the one in the picture above.

 

Now, the LEGO is displaying at the Nintendo World Store at Rockefeller Center in New York City.

 

This sculpture of the Nintendo DSi was created to coincide with the release of the real Nintendo DSi on April 5, 2009. The sculpture is nearly 7 feet wide and contains 51,324 LEGO pieces. It took over 200 hours to create and weighs over 250 pounds.

 

You can get your picture taken with the DSi in New York!

UCSC engineer students made an old school mario game with post-its. They did it all over the building. This is so cool and very creative. I love it!

Virtual Zoo

by

Welcome to Golffy’s Virtual Zoo. I collected funny, cute, interesting animal pictures from Yahoo Photos, and put them in one slide show. Some of the pictures were taken from Dusit Zoo, Thailand. This makes me want to visit Dusit Zoo if I have a chance. It’s very impressive!

 I don’t want to link to the pictures because I know that at some point Yahoo is going to remove them. I rather keep these pictures. Enjoy!

The navigation Back and Next buttion are located below the picture.

Undersea Tonga Volcano Erupts

by

On March 18, an undersea volcano erupted off the coast of Tonga shooting clouds of smoke, steam and ash thousands of feet into the sky above the South Pacific ocean. This is very scary! But, thanks God, the geologists said there was no apparent danger to residents of Nuku’alofa and others living on the main island of Tongatapu.

Tsunami warning was issued for Tonga, Fiji, anod other close areas. So far, there were no immediate reports of damange, injuries or death. (Source: WikiNews).

Flying Without Wings

by

During lunch break, I went in to the break room in my office where there was a flat LCD hanging on the wall. I saw an interesting news about the space shuttle.  The camera discovered a “bat” clinging on the foam of the external tank of the space shuttle moments before the launch. spacebat.jpg

I’m not sure how in the world NASA would see that??? The news reported that NASA officials had hoped the bat would fly away on its own. They, however, admitted that the bat probably would die during the ignition. Awww..www

 

In addition to this weird news, NASA brought this video clip to a wildlife expert and ask for opinion about it. The expert said it appeared to be  free-tailed bat that probably had a broken left wing and an injured right shoulder or wrist. OKKK? Awww poor bat… He’s just want a ride to the space.. that’s all! LOL

Red Panda

by

Most people will recognize a panda which has white fur and black ears and eyes, etc. What about red panda? You might don’t get this “read panda” name. What about “Firefox”? Yeahh.. just like the Internet browser application name.

Firefox – Internet Browser Logo

.

According to Wiki, red panda is also known as “firefox” or “lesser panda.”  Red panda is a herbivorous mammal. Another word, red panda likes to eat a bamboo (just like the most panda we know).

How cute!!!

The picture below is a four-month-old red panda, named Pemba. It’s his first public appearance at Sydney’s Toronga Zoo, Australia. Red panda becomes the endangered species since 1977.
