7 new things in next-gen iPhone

I just read 7 new things in next-gen iPhone:
  1. New [touch-sensitive] plastic casing
  2. OLED screen
  3. [5 or higher Mega pix] Camera [with LED flash]
  4. New OS
  5. Removable battery
  6. Video chat
  7. RFID reader
I am using Samsung Omnia II and it has AMOLED screen, 5 mega pix camera with LED flash, removable battery (seems only iPhones don't have), video chat (I guess). I supposed no phone has the touch-sensitive plastic casing and RFID reader. Making the back casing touch-sensitive could be useful, but already I find there is too much "sensitive" area on a touch-screen phone. Shall see what are the benefits. I have no clue why would I need a RFID reader.

This really shows the very importance of the OS!!! Sigh...

Different attitudes towards cyclists

I am delighted to see this:

The foot rest reads: "Hi, cyclist! Rest your foot here... and thank you for cycling in the city."

In contrast, a comment by someone reads

My cycling in Singapore experiences - My once very improvised bike

Another 1.5 year have passed and still no one wants my bike. A reason I think is it has been quite heavily improvised, but, actually, it is now much more normal looking. If you are interested to look at how improvised it was, sorry, I am not posting photo of my bike because I don't think I have any photos of my bicycle :P you can see a photo here. I also prefer not to do so in case it attracts too much attention to my bike and myself in person. So, let me try to describe what have changed here

Be in command

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Charter. All opinions are 100% mine.

I have not paid any television licensing fees. I do so legally in Singapore by not having a television at home. It isn't because the money, which is not much, but my time and selection of contents. I find it difficult to be in command when there is a television set at home.

In a broadcast setting, I can't decide when to watch, what show to watch, watch again fully or partially, pause for a moment, etc. How about you? Do you want to be in command of when, how and what show to watch? Personally, I like the concept of on demand so that I can be

Work and play. Upsized.

Months have passed since I changed my phone from Nokia N80ie to Samsung Omnia II i8000. Another rather big step just as I had previously moved from Nokia 3250 to N80ie.

My verdict after just using for only a few days still stands today, which is that hardware wise, it is a good phone but Windows Mobile 6.1 OS does not match up to it. Now that Apple iPhone 3GS and Google Nexus One just come out more recently, I feel Omnia II is

Hope you find some advertisements of interest to you

Finally, after so many years using Google Adsense, I experimented and found that really a single click can earn money. Now, I need to figure out how to increase the chance of visitor clicking on the ads.

How to learn to ride a bicycle?

I have an untested idea. It started with the question "Did the inventor of bicycle know how to ride a bicycle before his invention?" It sounds like a chicken and egg problem. Without a bicycle being invented, how would the inventor know he could ride one? If the inventor fell from his first invented bicycle, could he have abandoned the invention?

I did a search and found

Others on comparing Omnia II with iPhone 3GS and Nexus One

Followup to the previous question. I did more searches and I found the followings:

Samsung Omnia II slam-dunks the iPhone 3GS, almost on 15 Jun 2009.
Worthy competitor of the iPhone? on 4 Sep 2009.
Samsung Omnia II vs Nexus One: Specification Comparison on 6 Jan 2010.

Again, I want to say, what is Microsoft doing???

Nexus One, Omnia II, iPhone 3GS

HTC Google Nexus One vs Samsung Omnia II I8000 vs Apple iPhone 3GS comparison

Looking at the specifications, isn't Samsung Omnia II I8000 better than both Apple iPhone 3GS and Google Nexus One? Why is it there are so much news about the other two?

What am I missing out? Anyone can enlighten me?

Are traffic rules meant for safety?

I read in Be a cyclist in Singapore? No chance at all that
Traffic engineer Hans Monderman, who reworked Drachten's roads, believes that clear lanes and street signs give drivers a false sense of security. Drivers speed down these lanes thinking there are no obstructions, which increases the severity of accidents should something catch them unawares.
He has the luxury to reworked Drachten's roads. Here, the LTA seems quite reluctant to make any changes. Now, by the logic of Monderman, it might be better for LTA not to do anything. I think as most infrastructures and traffic rules were not there for safety, but rather for speed, and the by-product of false sense of security.
