Computer Tips

Almost everyone of us has seen or heard of the Internet scam. Some of them are very tricky. They may pretend to be very wise or to be very stupid that some people can’t judge if it is real or fake. For those who are good at verifying information, it is not really a big problem but for people who always believe what they see to be true will likely become their victims.

The way they cheat people can be very different ranging from e-mail notifying of your winning a lucky draw, e-mail asking you to assist them in getting fund left by their dead relatives, e-mail pretending to be from one of your friends who are overseas asking you to help then claiming they are in trouble, web promotion to get free job like this one and so on.

In this particular case as seen in the picture, it is a website saying you can work with them online and get paid very highly. As seen they make it so real for basic Internet users. They show the flag of the victim’s nation and testimonials from people in the country you are living based on the IP it detects. After reading all the details on their website and you feel more confident, you will be asked to register with just a few steps and they will ask you to pay the start-up membership fee and as it looks so real and easy to get the job with little job experience required, many people have fallen into their trap. For those who need jobs, they might be risking their money as it doesn’t cost too much (around $30) to get the job. As it sounds easy, some people don’t want to consult their friends and people they know about this so they risk it alone.

My point of posting this article is to alert my readers who are not familiar with this kind of scam to be careful. Internet access has become easily available to more people; meanwhile, it also has become very dangerous to surf the web from day to day.


A screenshot of the Orkida English-Khmer Dictionary on Mac

Orkida English Khmer Dictionary has been used by most (if not all) Cambodian computer users for years since its inception. We’ve become loyal to it even we have many new replacements. It is simple, lightweight, and easy to install. However, as life keeps moving, we sometimes end up moving away from it unintentionally. In this article, I will be focusing on Mac users. As you move out of the Windows PCs, you miss many or some of your favorite Windows apps. Well, they maybe available also on Mac, for example Photoshop, InDesign etc. However, many are not available for Mac users. Although they have alternatives for Mac, they are sometimes not as good as expected.

Some are not available now, but we can hope they (developers) will make one for Mac OS one day. Still, there are applications that you will never expect they are made for Mac. Just like this old dictionary, I believe it will never be made available for Mac so I did a little workaround to have it run on my Mac without even the need to install Windows on neither Parallel Desktop nor VM Ware.

Please note that not all Windows applications can be done this way.  I will share with you guys soon should you wish to learn how to make it possible.

Xee is a lightweight, fast and convenient image viewer and browser. It is designed to be a serious tool for image viewing and management, with a sleek and powerful interface.

Xee is useful as a more powerful replacement for Preview, or most any other image viewer available on Mac OS X. It is very fast, and uses less memory than most other image viewing tools. Beside the best speed and simple interface, it has easily configurable keyboard shortcuts. To me, this is the best freeware image viewer on Mac.

អាចទាញយកបាននៅទីនេះ | Can be downloaded HERE. Or go to the developer’s site here

With Preview (Mac pre-installed image viewer), you will get bored of waiting to death. lolz



Hi Everyone! After being silent for quite a long time, today, I bring you a new Khmer Unicode font namely Kh MPS Prey Veng. Tested with Adobe CS3+ products and Microsoft Office.

After Orkut of Google was beaten by Facebook years ago, Google introduced another social tool namely Google Plus (G+) hoping to compete Facebook to get back its lost face. A few rounds have passed, but G+ is still far behind its rival Facebook. Will G+ beat Facebook or be beaten again?
Personally, I don’t feel much hope for the G+ as many people including me have already addicted to Facebook lolz.

Multiling Keyboard which still has problem

Somewhere, a RIAA supporter is crying right now. Rovio, the mobile developer behind the wildly popular Angry Birds game has talked a bit about piracy at the Medim conference this week.

Rather than get aggressive and sue people like the RIAA did; Rovio is taking a much more laid-back and much more intelligent path to dealing with piracy. The policy is do nothing unless it hurts users of the game or clearly hurts the Angry Birds brand.

Rovio admits it has some issues with piracy and the Angry Birds brand, particularly in Asia were unlicensed merchandise is rampant. However, Rovio CEO Mikael Hed says that piracy isn’t necessarily a bad thing. In fact, Hed says the piracy can be a good thing and help bring in more business for the brand. “We have some issues with piracy, not only in apps, but also especially in the consumer products. There is tons and tons of merchandise out there, especially in Asia, which is not officially licensed products,” said Hed. “We could learn a lot from the music industry, and the rather terrible ways the music industry has tried to combat piracy.”

Rovio says it’s futile to pursue pirates in the courts and it will only do so when it feels that the products are being sold are harmful to the Angry Birds brand, or are detrimental to fans. The crux of the argument seems to be that Rovio doesn’t want to be viewed as a bad guy by fans, which is how the music industry is viewed when it comes to rampant suits of people with tenuous ties to pirating music. Good on you Rovio, I hope that the music industry and other firms that deal with piracy take this path.

Piracy may not be a bad thing: it can get us more business at the end of the day,” Mikael Hed, Rovio CEO.
