SMS Winners Are……. (Drumroll)

Every now an then you might have receive SMS on your phone informing that you had won some amount of RM in thousands from high profile companies such as Shell, Petronas, Maxis etc. So the greedy will be the next victim.

Before proceeding further please visit this website so that you know that those SMSes are not fake. Now,do you think those SMSes are scam? But wait!! Checkout their customer Service Centre phone number. Its a mobile phone number. Legitimate Customer Service numbers usually are fixed lines and here in Malaysia it is 1300 XX XXXX or 1800 XX XXXX. Then compare it with this website.

After visiting the first website, now are you convinced that the SMSes sent to you are “genuine”? Compare it with the second website with a dot my extension. Hahahaha……don’t fall into the greed pit. The domain name of the first website was registered in Tokelau with its dot tk extension and I checked the website for the domain name extension. Where is it?

Tokelau

  • Here is the top-level domain for Tokelau – a territory of New Zealand located in the South Pacific. There are no restrictions on registering domain names with this extension. Some free domain names are available, hosted with the registry. Extenal hosting is available with paid domains.
    • .tk – Registrations are made directly at the second-level.

Visiting the website will make you realise how far these scammers will go to convince prospected victims to fall into their trap. The advice is NEVER BE GREEDY when it comes to easy money.

Taiji Dolphin Massacre

Every year the fishermen of Taiji, in western Wakayama prefecture, drive hundreds of dolphins into a cove, select some for sale to marine parks, release some and kill the rest for meat.

First Man Landed on The Sun Against 5G Internet

Did you read the news that North Korea had sent the first man to land on the sun? Don’t believe me man can land on the sun? Read it HERE. I know most of us will be ROTFL but believe me. Look the screen capture of the news over TV. Image

The total trip will take only 17 hours before the shuttle safely lands back on earth where Gong is expected to receive a hero’s welcome. The best part is he supposedly was able to stay alive by traveling under the cover of darkness because the only way to travel to the sun is to go at night to not get burned and he is going to bring back sun spot samples for his uncle; the dear leader“. Hey! Please don’t laugh. Its serious. Period.

On the other side of the border, well of course a more real to earth news was announced. South Korea plans to launch 5G service in 2017 where a 800Mb file can be downloaded in 1 seconds. So this will be another speed challenge between East and West? We have witness the war between Samsung and Apple and now who will be the first to ride the internet on 5G spectrum.

4G is already running around and still at its kids stage and will take sometimes before it matures into an adolescent. mind you. It will not be able to reach adult because technology develops at a very fast speed. Realise that some areas are still having a fun day with 3G when 4G arrives and created another speed fest? South Korea has been running 4G as commercial service since 2010, mind you.

South Korea aims to roll out the service in 2017 and made available to everyone by 2020. In terms of speed, the difference between 4G and 5G is massive. An 800MB file typically takes 40 seconds to download over a 4G connection. On 5G that will be cut to just 1 second.

Of course better services comes with a higher price tag and a $1.5 billion investment is required to get the project off the ground. SK Telecom and Korea Telecom have been named as potential partners, but it is thought LG and Samsung may also help with the funding. After all, Samsung has already experimented with 5G and achieved a 1Gbps data transfer.

With such speed available, we can expect to have access to 4K video streaming services alongside not having to wait for any website to load.

Imbasan Stesen MRT Di KL

MRT Malaysia sedang giat menyiapkan rangkaian keretapi ringan atau Light rail Transit untuk memberikan perkhidmatan kepada rakyat Malaysia, khususnya yang tinggal di Lembah Kelang dan sekitarnya. Ia merupakan tambahan kepada rangkaian LRT sedia ada yang dikendalikan oleh RapidKL.

Laman Facebook MRTMalaysia telah mengeluarkan imbasan beberapa stesen yang sedang dibina di beberapa lokasi di sekitar bandaraya Kuala Lumpur. Memang nampak moden dan tidak pasti sama ada futuristik.

Berikut  adalah contoh stesen bawah tanah berhadapan dengan Muzium Negara.

Strangers Can Email You Without Your Email Address

This is a post I copied from Says, to be shared on social media sites.

Its’ now easier for strangers to email you without your email address. How?
Google, you no longer need someone’s email address to send then an email.

You no longer need someone’s email address to send them an email. At least, that will soon be the case if you want to email another Google+ user.

  •  Google is today making a change to Gmail that will further bake in Google+ to its webmail product in a way that’s actually somewhat practical, though also potentially invasive. techcrunch.com
    • Big thumb 838e
  • Going forward, you’ll now be able to directly email your Google+ contacts from Gmail, even if you don’t know their email address. computerworld.com.au
  • And by default, anyone on Google+ will be able to email you as well, thanks to this new option, if you don’t adjust your settings. thenextweb.com

This feature appears as you begin typing your contact’s name in the “To” field of an email message.

  • Matching contacts display first at the top of the list of suggestions provided by Gmail’s autocomplete, while your Google+ connections appear below. techcrunch.com
    • Big thumb d347
  • Once the service goes live over the next few days, a new setting will appear in Gmail called “Email via Google+.” theverge.com

Basically — by default — anyone on Google+ will be able to send messages to your Gmail inbox — even if they do not have your email address.

Because of the privacy implications of this feature — and the possibility of overwhelming the inboxes of more public figures — Google has at least put controls in place that allow you to specify who can send you emails

Last updated by sadhor about 19 hours ago
  • If you don’t want everyone on Google+ to be able to send you an email, you’ll have to opt out by selecting “no one” or choosing another option to limit the feature to people in certain circles. mashable.com
    • Big thumb f05f
  • And of course, because Google+ is now the default platform for YouTube commenting, and required for things like setting up a new Gmail account, the “Anyone on Google+” option is much larger today than in earlier years. thenextweb.com
  • Many people are technically “on Google+,” even if they aren’t active on the Google+ destination site itself. techcrunch.com

Google also says that emails from Google+ users outside of your circles will not hit your “primary” inbox — they’ll be placed in the new “social” tab it introduced earlier this year.

Last updated by sadhor about 19 hours ago
  • Those users will only be able to start a conversation with you if you respond to them or add them to your Google+ Circles – something you can do right from the email header (which fortunately offers a visible “Report Spam or Abuse” link, as well). mashable.com
    • Big thumb f0a6

Google is rolling out the feature over the next few days and will alert users via email when they have the option to change their settings. So, be on the look out.

Remaja DiRogol Datuk Tiri

Kes haruan makan anak sering kita dengar. Orang yang sepatutnya bertanggungjawab menjaga mereka di bawahnya sebaliknya menjadikan orang itu mangsa nafsu serakah.

Di Kajang seorang remaja berusia 15 tahun telah lari dari rumah dan membuat laporan di Balai Polis Kajang setelah tidak tahan lagi dirogol oleh Datuk tirinya sejak empat tahun lepas.

Datuk tirinya berusia 68 tahun. Apa yang terlintas di kepala anda dengan usia seorang lelaki berusia sedemikian? Inilah kes harapkan pagar pagar makan padi.

Bapa remaja tersebut dan ibunya telah kembali ke rahmatullah dan tinggallah remaja tersebut dengan adik-adiknya bersama bapa dan Datuk tirinya. Datuk tirinya akan menunggu apabila tidak ada orang di rumah sebelum mengunci mangsa bersama di dalam bilik dan memuaskan nafsu serakahnya.

Sebelum itu remaja tersebut mendiamkan diri dari pengetahuan sesiapa sehinggalha mengambil keputusan untuk melarikan diri dari rumah dan membuat laporan di Balai Polis.

Suspe telah ditahan dan reman oleh pihak polis untuk siasatan di bawah Seksyen 376 Kanun Jenayah. Semoga remaja tersebut akan mendapat pembelaan sewajarnya.
