Telefon jatuh ke dalam tandas? Apa yang sepatutnya dilakukan?


Telefon anda terjatuh ke dalam tandas? Anda tidak keseorangan kerana lebih 15% orang mengakui kesilapan yang sama. Jadi, apa yang patut anda lakukan?

1. Ambil telefon anda secepat mungkin ; lebih lama ianya berada di dalam air, lebih tipis harapan untuk menyelamatkannya.
2. Matikan telefon anda. Jika ianya telah terpadam, jangan cuba untuk menghidupkannya.
3. Buka kad sim, memori kad dan bateri (jika boleh dibuka sahaja).
4. Menggunakan kain/tuala, lapkan semua bahagian yang basah secara perlahan-lahan.
5. Letakkan telefon anda di dalam sebuah bekas yang mempunyai beras. Beras akan dapat mengeluarkan cecair yang berada di dalam telefon anda.
6. Tinggalkan telefon anda di dalam bekas beras tersebut selama 24 jam.

2 perkara yang tidak boleh dilakukan:
1. Jangan menggunakan pengering rambut (hair dryer) untuk mengeringkan air pada telefon anda.
2. Jangan cuba mengecas telefon anda.
Selepas 24 jam, cuba hidupkan semula telefon anda. Semoga berjaya :)

Feeling 'Flappy Bird' Rage? You're Not Alone

Are you ready for the newest mobile game that will make you want to throw your phone against the wall? Say hello to Flappy Bird.


Flappy Bird shot to the number one spot in the App Store this week, outranking mobile titans like Snapchat, Instagram, and Facebook. The game has a pretty simple premise - help a bird fly through tubes by tapping on your screen. Sounds easy, right? Nope.

Facebook’s Paper App for iPhone Is the Future of Facebook

Last Thursday, Facebook announced that it was about to release an iPhone app called Paper. The app is now available from Apple’s App Store. If you use Facebook on an iPhone, you really need to try it.

That’s because the app - unlike other Facebook mobile efforts such as Messenger and the failed Snapchat knockoff Poke - isn’t a specialized tool or a side project. It’s Facebook - almost all of it, anyhow - rethought for a small screen, with 2014 aesthetics.


By calling it Paper and leaving the original Facebook app untouched in the App Store, the company smartly avoids leaving users feeling like radical, jarring change is being imposed upon them. But it’s hard to imagine that Mark Zuckerberg & Co. don’t see the ideas in this app as a first rough draft of Facebook’s future, period.

(Side note: For now, at least, I’m going to err on the side of usually referring to this app as “Facebook Paper,” since a well-known and excellent iPad app already has the name “Paper.”)

Most of what you can do in the standard Facebook app for iPhone, you can do in Facebook Paper. There are some exceptions: I don’t see lists, apps or events, for instance. Whether you’re likely to want to use Paper full-time depends in part on whether you’re a heavy user of any of the missing items. (I’m not.) And what’s new basically boils down into two things: The interface and the sections of news organized by topic.

First, that new interface. It really does dispense with much of the stuff you associate with Facebook, including the company’s trademark blue trim and emphasis on lots and lots of vertical scrolling. Now everything’s cleaner, with a large content panel on the top, smaller horizontally-scrolling ones on the bottom, lots of big images and a profusion of fluid animation effects.

Overall, I like it very much, though I expect that not everybody will be fond of all the horizontal scrolling, which departs from the norm of smartphone interfaces. And the type in the small panels is pretty darn teensy: People with aging eyeballs may need to squint.

Besides the new look, Facebook Paper involves a bunch of gestures that may not be intuitive from the get-go. For instance, you swipe the large panel to the left or right at the top to move from section to section, and pull down on a story you’re reading to move back into the section it came from. Photos show up in oversized views you can pan back and forth by wiggling your phone to and fro.

Within five minutes, I’d figured everything out — where to find features, and how to navigate with flicks of my thumb. But it’s such a daring makeover that people who are largely comfy with Facebook as it already exists on the iPhone may find it a shock to the system.

(Side note: When you first launch the app and begin exploring it, a tutorial keeps butting in, with no way to shut it off. I assume that I’m not the only person who bristles at such things and therefore ignores them, rendering them ineffective. I’d much prefer more conventional help I could peruse at my leisure — which Facebook Paper doesn’t seem to have.)

Then there are those topic-based sections. You can add whichever ones appeal to you and order them as you please, then read them like a magazine. It gives Facebook Paper a bit of a Flipboard feel.

I count 19 sections in all, many of which have names that emphasize cleverness over clarity, as sections in dead-tree magazines often do. There’s a sports section called “Score” and a photo section called “Exposure,” for instance. One called “Pride” has the tagline “There’s strength in community” — you can probably guess the theme, but I’m curious why Facebook doesn’t just state it directly.

More than any form of Facebook I’ve seen in the past, these sections are less about your friends and other assorted individuals, and more about established experts. The content in each one is dominated by brand-name media: In Tech, for instance, I see items from Gizmodo, The Verge, Techmeme, TechCrunch, Cnet, 9to5Mac and others. But I also see some posts from Facebook users — well-known ones, at least, such as Search Engine Land’s Danny Sullivan, the New York Times’ Nick Bilton and Mashable’s Pete Cashmore. (Full disclosure: I saw plenty of TIME stories in sections such as Headlines and Ideas.)

As with the rest of Paper, sections have a big panel at the top and browsable smaller ones below. Even though the app still displays articles by giving you the same view you’d see if you simply visited the site where the item was published, it now shows them in a less cramped full-screen mode, which makes for easier reading. You can also save stories to read-later services such as Pocket, Instapaper and Safari’s Reading List.

As far as I can tell, everybody who chooses to browse a section gets exactly the same feed, chosen by human editors rather than a fancy algorithm that knows I like to read about smartwatches but don’t care much about graphics cards — but that I prefer desktops over watches. So the sections don’t feel all that Facebook-y, and I don’t think they present an immediate existential threat to existing ways to read news on an iPhone, such as Flipboard, Zite, Circa, News360, Inside and many, many others.

Still, these sections are a big deal. Facebook is figuring out how to organize itself by subject. It’s incorporating external content more elegantly than before. And it’s giving you a way to efficiently find out what’s new in the world, rather than expecting you to dive into your newsfeed and hoping that your friends point you in the right direction. It’s easy to envision how this modest first pass at the idea might evolve into something much more powerful.

And even though Facebook’s last ultra-ambitious idea — Facebook Home — turned out to be, um, something less than a game changer, Facebook Paper feels like it has a shot at the big time. Especially if the influential types who will be the first to try it recommend it to friends and family, and especially if it arrives on the iPad, Android devices and other platforms. Assuming it doesn’t flop, it’ll be interesting to see how Facebook manages its two iPhone incarnations, and whether it ever takes steps to nudge less adventurous users into the Paper camp.

I’m a sucker for slick, modern interfaces, so I expect that Facebook Paper will be my Facebook app of choice on the iPhone. If you install it, let me know what you think.

5 Apps That Protect Your Phone from Theft


Know that feeling of helplessness you get when you think you might have lost your phone? The sheer terror of thinking you might have lost all your contacts, photos, text messages – your very lifeline?
The good news is that you can take precautions against this unpleasant scenario. Many mobile apps offer features that protect your phone and can even help you retrieve it if it was lost, stolen or accidentally taken. Here are the five top recommended apps to consider:

iHound

This app uses geo-location to search for a lost or stolen device and accurately track down its whereabouts. But that’s not the only way it can help. The Android version allows you to remotely lock your mobile device and delete personal information. This way, if your Smartphone falls into the wrong hands, you can prevent them from causing real harm.
Another treat for Android users is remote messaging with your phone, so you can communicate with whomever has it. iPhone users get another great feature that lets you activate a loud alarm sound when you fear for your Smartphone’s fate.

GadgetTrak
This smart app offers several anti-theft features, like location detection, remote alarm activation and file protection. It has extensive versions for both iOS and Android devices (as well as safety products for computers and cameras). Apple devices get an extra awesome feature – GadgetTrak snaps photos with your stolen mobile camera and collects evidence that can help you locate your phone and catch the unfortunate thief.

Prey
Prey has an amazing record of lost/stolen device recovery. Happy users testify that once they receive the first signal from the app, the police can recover their stolen device within hours. In several cases, rightful owners receive their stolen devices within 24 hours after the crime was committed!
Prey operates with geo-location tracking and remote camera activation, and it protects your data while the device is away. If you wish to protect more than one device you can get a pro package and secure your entire family’s or business’ phones.

Motion Alarm
Two separate apps offer this great service to concerned Smartphone owners: Motion Alarm for iOS users  and Motion & Sound Alarm for Android users. The iPhone app uses motion-triggered deterrence technology that keeps unwelcome hands away from your phone. It uses tricks like stealth mode and darkened screen to confuse the thief and disguise the app’s activity.
The Android app adds sound-triggered protection. If the app recognizes suspicious activity, it will either set off an alarm, notify the owner via phone call or activate GPS tracking. You can also control the app from afar by sending text messages with instructions.

Snuko
A reliable app that takes all the necessary measures to make sure your phone is safe. In case of a theft, a simple text message or online command will lock the phone for further use, back up and remove all valuable information, start tracking the thief’s moves and notify the authorities. Snuko works on Blackberry, iPhone and Android devices but the Android version seems to be the most powerful one.

iPhone Home Security Enables Video Feed From Your Front Door


Many studies conducted during 2012 told us that the most overlooked personal security areas were in our homes. We tend to spend way more time securing our smartphones and even our social networking profiles than we do protecting our homes. That’s insane when you think about it. The fact that we are not spending more time on our home security could spell disaster if the unfortunate were to happen. There are so many nifty and cost effective solutions in today’s technology infused society that overlooking this is just not an option anymore. What you can achieve with an iPhone today took several thousands of dollars just a few years ago. Maybe that is why the iPhone home security apps are becoming more and more popular.

A new device called the DoorBot connects to the iPhone in order to show you the person who is knocking on the door. Yes, it’s a simple idea, but it’s also highly effective. All you really need to do is install the DoorBot iPhone home security device as your doorbell and of course install the accompanying iPhone app. Then just hook the system up to your WiFi connection, and you’re all good to go. The DoorBot will start a video feed directly from the doorbell mounted camera right to your iPhone. That way, you will never get any freaky encounters from people who are knocking on your door with malicious intent.


DoorBot -- The Wi-Fi Enabled "Smart" Doorbell from Christie Street on Vimeo.

The DoorBot is another startup product that is looking for funding. This time around, it’s a product that could have a vital impact on your home security. Through ChristieStreet, you can buy either the DoorBot iPhone home security device for $169.00, or a DoorBot with a Lockitron for $319.00. The money will go directly to further research and development, so it’s money well spent. ChristieStreet works a little bit differently from IndieGoGo and Kickstarter. On ChristieStreet, you seem to be able to pre-order the product instead of pledging. However, the delivery is based on the same terms and will be fulfilled only when the project is successfully funded (or so I think). The way the iPhone home security app industry is taking form leads me to believe the iPhone could soon become a popular security hub from which we could control almost all of our home access, lights and electricity. Check out this video presentation of the DoorBot and be impressed. There are quite a few groundbreaking features incorporated into it.

Look at how great a Google smartwatch could be


With wearable tech a bit of a buzzphrase right now and talk of a possible Apple/Intel smartwatch doing the rounds, this concept for what a Google watch might look like is right on cue.
Using Google’s latest design language, this ‘Google Time’ concept byAdrian Maciburko is a nice idea for a super-simple take on the kinds of features such a device might have, including voice and touch interfaces.
What strikes me though, is how a smartwatch from Google would be a perfect fit for working with Google Now. A Google Now-equipped watch would be in sync with your Google account, notifying you about upcoming meetings, flight delays, birthdays and more just as Google Now does on recent versions of Android. What do you say, Larry? Make it happen!

NINETOLOGY OFFERINGS UNDER YOUTH COMMUNICATION PACKAGE: FROM RM 199 ONWARDS



A relatively new player in town, Ninetology first made it into the headlines back in November last year by launching five Android-based devices to the market. Two of them – the Black Pearl II i9400and Palette i5300 – were listed under the initial list of MCMC-approved devices for the newly launched Youth Communications Package (YCP).
Furthermore, the Black Pearl II is generally the most capable device in the list according to its technical specifications which includes a dual-core 1GHz CPU and 4-inch IPS display. According to Ninetology, both devices carries a price tag of RM 499 and 399 respectively which are subsequently reduced to RM 299 and RM 199 thanks to YCP’s RM 200 rebate. Both devices can now be obtained from Ninetology’s authorized dealers as well as Clixster, DiGi and Tune Talk.

Who is Clixster, you asked? Well, we’ll answer that in a separate article later today but for the meantime, you can learn more about Ninetology over at www.facebook.com/NinetologyMalaysia.

Adakah Apple sedang menguji iPhone 6 sekarang?

Sekarang ni ada berita yang mengatakan bahawa Apple sedang membangunkan iPhone baru, dan versi baru IOS, tetapi hari ini ada pihak mendakwa telah melihat bukti pertama telefon dan IOS baru dari Apple. Menurut dakwaan seorang pembangun IOS, alat yang dinamakan "iPhone 6,1" yang digerakkan oleh IOS 7 telah membuat permintaan dari alamat IP di dalam kampus Apple Cupertino sendiri.


SEKARANG MUNGKIN ADALAH MASA YANG BAIK UNTUK UJIAN IPHONE BARU

Mungkinkah sebuah syarikat yang kononnya sangat berahsia yang berpura-pura sedang membangunkan sebuah iPhone baru atau mungkin juga wujudnya seseorang yang menipu alamat IP Apple dan IOS sekadar untuk bersuka-suka. Atau, ia mungkin juga boleh menjadi satu kebenaran bahawa iPhone baru sedang giat diuji oleh Apple sekarang, syarikat yang sentiasa mengeluarkan produk baru yang inovatif saban tahun. Dan pada tahun 2010, apabila Apple menjemput wartawan di dalam makmal pembangunan, kita belajar bahawa setiap produk baru baru akan diuji selama beberapa tahun sebelum ianya sedia untuk ditunjukkan kepada orang ramai.
