Old gadgets..

Okay it seems that the bluetooth keyboard that I got the senorita for her birthday to be used with her then phone the nokia n86 works like a charm with my xperia x10 phone. That's just brilliant innit?

Well there are some quirks to it but its amazing that a dated device still works relatively well today how many years later.

That brings me to this question. How many of our seemingly outdated gadgets are still usable and relevent today?

Well for starters, let's list down what gadgets that's still lying around the house. There's the senorita's olympus digital camera. All 4 megapixels of it. Was quite medium to high end at the time. I think its still functioning, but when most phones ur using right now have better cameras, u tend not to bother with it anymore.

I have my palm tungsten t5. It was quite useful at the time. I used it for everything to keep my life organized. I was using a dumbphone at the time coz I preferred to keep my gagdget separate. Got me a wireless sd card thingy so that I can access the net via wifi. If not I would tether the palm via bluetooth. You can watch movies on it, games, and pretty much do anything with it. Now it just lays there in the storeroom. I still take it out sometimes just for nostalgia sake.

But I guess the smartphone killed the pda star.

We also have a spiffy nokia 6230I from back in 2005 which still work as my short stint of using it as a backup phone.

There's not much change to the things that we do. Instead the speed and efficiency has improved. So if u needed a camera in 2005 chances are u still need a camera in 2011. The form may change but the functions are still the same.

Brand new year, same old shit?

2017 is here. After that very eventful 2016 one can't help but hope that the new year brings about more positive things. It doesn't look all that good though.
Will we get an election this year? I'd seriously consider it if I was the pm. I mean yes he has go a lot going for him but what he doesn't have at the moment is a credible United opposition to give him a run for his money. So yeah. Calling for an early election may be something that can be to his favour.
Will stupid acts by stupid people stop making then famous? Nope. Early on we saw a bunch of kids scaling the IPOH sign for shits and giggles. Posted everything on social media. Last I heard they've already come in to give statements to the fuzz. So the moral of the story is if you wanna do stupid things don't blab on social media with your smiling mug there for everyone to see.
Pump prices are up. No point complaining anymore since the price mechanism is partially public so we can pretty much guess th…

What's in it for me.

Looking at how the campaign for the Sarawak state election is going you would think that is a matter of who can promise the most who would probably win it. Difference being one party boasts a track record and the other one, well depends on which other one that is doesn't. 
I especially love it how these promises are all presented as conditional upon winning the election. Doesn't reek of bribery at all eh? Not buying votes. Yeah right. 
You would think that given how Selangor and Penang are run, they would want to see it emulated in Sarawak? I guess loyalty goes a long way over there. 
As it is there are a couple of outstanding issues that Sarawak can use as a bargaining chip in trying to force the federal government to start giving them more.
Oil royalties, more federal projects etc. and what better way to do it than to vote for the opposition? 
If the opposition wins, then Sarawakians can send a message to the federal gov't that hey if you don't give us what we want than t…
