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.

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.


Have you ever been notified of you being POKED by your friend on Facebook? Do you know or want to know what it means? Then I will show you, and I am sure you may somehow like it.

Screenshot of me being poked with Pokers’ identities erased

POKE is a special feature of Facebook with the sole purpose to draw another user’s attention. You receive poke alert because one of your friend on Facebook wants to attract your attention. It can also mean that they are saying HI or HELLO to you, so to reply, you can also Poke them back. The other use of poke is to alert Facebook friend so that they may browse your profile and read your new status or upload. It is similar to TAG in some case. However, unlike TAG, you can Poke your friend anytime even without posting or uploading any picture.

When you are poked, you will see a poke icon with a message that says, “You were poked by,” and the name of the poker. It also has an option to “Remove Poke” and another one to “Poke Back.” Some people use this feature to Poke friends back and forth as the way of playing game until either of them gives up.

To get even clearer picture of it is to think of when you are walking in a public place and at a sudden, one of your friend (who is not joining your walk) sees you and then s/he comes to you and taps you from behind and say HI.

Another picture is to think of when your friend Alarm Calls you on the phone. Sometimes, they alarm call you because they miss you, want to surprise you, alert you that they have just sent you a text message and to read it. I am sure you know many more purposes of making the alarm call.

However, one can only poke a confirmed friend, someone in a shared network, or a friend of a friend.

I hope you like it.


Rest in Peace my Beloved Steve Jobs

Apple Inc co-founder and former CEO Steve Jobs, one of the greatest American CEOs, died on Wednesday at the age of 56. He had been suffering cancer and other health issues.

Although he is just one year older than Bill Gates of Microsoft, Steve was never lucky enough. He had been battling cancer and health issues until his death.

Following is Steve’s biography in brief from wikipedia:

Jobs was born in San Francisco and was adopted by Paul and Clara Jobs (née Hagopian) of Mountain View, California, who named him Steven Paul. Paul and Clara later adopted a daughter, whom they named Patti. Jobs’ biological parents – Abdulfattah John Jandali, a Syrian Muslim graduate student from Homs who later became a political science professor and Joanne Simpson (née Schieble), an American graduate student who went on to become a speech language pathologist – eventually married. Together, they gave birth to and raised Jobs’ biological sister, novelist Mona Simpson.

Jobs attended Cupertino Junior High and Homestead High School in Cupertino, California. He frequented after-school lectures at the Hewlett-Packard Company in Palo Alto, California and was later hired there, working with Steve Wozniak as a summer employee. Following high school graduation in 1972, Jobs enrolled at Reed College in Portland, Oregon. Although he dropped out after only one semester, he continued auditing classes at Reed, while sleeping on the floor in friends’ rooms, returning Coke bottles for food money, and getting weekly free meals at the local Hare Krishna temple. Jobs later said, “If I had never dropped in on that single calligraphy course in college, the Mac would have never had multiple typefaces or proportionally spaced fonts.”

In autumn 1974, Jobs returned to California and began attending meetings of the Homebrew Computer Club with Wozniak. He took a job as a technician at Atari, a manufacturer of popular video games, with the primary intent of saving money for a spiritual retreat to India.

Jobs then traveled to India to visit the Neem Karoli Baba at his Kainchi Ashram with a Reed College friend (and, later, the first Apple employee), Daniel Kottke, in search of spiritual enlightenment. He came back a Buddhist with his head shaved and wearing traditional Indian clothing. During this time, Jobs experimented with psychedelics, calling his LSD experiences “one of the two or three most important things [he had] done in [his] life”. He has said that people around him who did not share his countercultural roots could not fully relate to his thinking.

Jobs returned to his previous job at Atari and was given the task of creating a circuit board for the game Breakout. According to Atari founder Nolan Bushnell, Atari had offered $100 for each chip that was eliminated in the machine. Jobs had little interest or knowledge in circuit board design and made a deal with Wozniak to split the bonus evenly between them if Wozniak could minimize the number of chips. Much to the amazement of Atari, Wozniak reduced the number of chips by 50, a design so tight that it was impossible to reproduce on an assembly line. At the time, Jobs told Wozniak that Atari had only given them $700 (instead of the actual $5,000) and that Wozniak’s share was thus $350.

After having been busy which makes me away from my blog for a long time, today, I felt I wanted to make a collection of my beloved geeks who have changed the way I (and all of us) live. Some geeks may appear first or last in my collection, but it doesn’t necessarily mean they are ranked first nor last. I love them all.

Geeks who have changed the way we live.

As in my disclaimer, it is to be noticed that these individuals who appear here in my list are not necessarily the single founders of their respective firms/products. They may be co-founders. The reason why I listed only these people and not their co-founders was because these are at least representatives of those in their team. Also, it was because they are commonly known by the public; there is no big deal. There still lovely geeks who are not listed here, but they are all in my heart.

It is also to be noticed that they are not just founders of the firms/products I mentioned in the list. In fact they founded a lot more than just what I mentioned. I just listed their most known firms/product they founded.

Note: Some founders here might have left the firms/products.

Enjoy loving them and have a nice weekend.
