Gmail 20MB Attachment

I just found out Gmail now is supporting maximum 20MB for attachments. This is really a big news. Although Gmail does not have the "unlimited" storage as what Yahoo! does, the 20MB attachment size is very attractive!!! Good job, Google!!!

Mainland China Web Censorship



Wow!!! I can't believe my blog has been blocked in the mainland China. I guess probably the whole www.blogspot.com domain has been blocked. Anyway, I used a free online tool called Great Firewall of China to check if the URL has been blocked by mainland China's firewall or not.

Nintendo Wii

Finally, I decided to join the club of owning a Nintendo Wii. It is still a very hard to find item. Yes, there are tons on eBay and the bidding price is between US$290 to US$350 plus shipping. I cannot say I like to shop at eBay. Let's put in this way. Will you spend US$300 to buy something that may be used by somebody? Will you spend US$300 on something that it will be very trouble to return and exchange if you find out it has problem?

Although I found a several "big" merchant on eBay that sells Wii in a very "reasonable" price, I still feel it's a major ripped off. First of all, Nintendo Wii is only US$249.99 MSRP. Second, it comes with just ONE game that contains 5 mini-sport games inside there. 99.99% ebay merchants posted the Wii as "Nintendo Wii with FIVE games" and selling it for US$290+. I agree to pay the extra 50 bucks premium for this rare item, but please do not trick the buyer by saying it comes with FIVE games!!!

After searching for the Wii for weeks, finally there are signs the stocks are coming in for the normal big merchants. Walmart has the customizable bundle for what? US$649.99? Isn't it a typo or not? Because of the high price, this bundle last for more than a week and still in stock. I check again today and it drops to US$448.92. However, I don't like bundles. Why forcing me to buy 3 games with the console together?

Circuity City has the Wii bundle in stock for US$409.96 when I checked it this morning. It comes with 2 games and it became out of stock when I checked again for the URL so I can post in this blog.

Finally, I found Toys "R" Us has the Wii in stock as well. I bought the Nintendo DS Light from Toys "R" Us when it was a rare item as well. Toys "R" Us has the best price I have ever seen. The Nintendo Wii is selling for US$249.99. Yes, it is US$249.99 plus sales tax and shipping. I ordered it immediately and it is closed to US$290 after adding the sales tax and shipping. However, it is still cheaper than buying from eBay and I feel safe to buy something from a big merchant.

By the way, if you are still searching for the Wii, you can try to visit TechBargins.com's Buy Wii page. For some reason, I woke up very early today (at 5:00am) so I get the the Wii for the "reasonable" price. I really have no idea when the Toys "R" US US$249.99 deal sold out.

(Update: I checked Toys "R" Us web site again after I ordered it (about 30 minutes after). The Wii is out of stock again. Woo!!!)

中大報與聖經

中大校報那幾條情色人獸交問題弄得香港滿城風雨,錯在有人低智無聊,把小問題送交淫審處,小題大做。現有人借題提意把聖經也送交淫審處,香港這地方也真光怪陸離。

陶傑在其專欄中,曾這樣說

《 中 大 學 生 報 》 的 情 色 事 件 , 本 來 是 小 事 。 殖 民 地 時 代 , 這 一 切 不 會 成 為 新 聞 。 只 在 「 港 人 治 港 」 的 十 年 , 太 多 沒 有 資 格 擁 有 權 力 的 前 殖 民 地 土 人 掌 了 權 , 他 們 的 知 識 不 夠 , 眼 界 狹 窄 , 加 上 人 人 有 自 己 的 「 私 人 目 的 」 ( Private Agenda ) , 中 國 人 辦 事 , 什 麼 都 一 窩 蜂 政 治 化 , 小 事 化 大 , 大 事 化 為 危 機 , 人 人 都 想 趕 搭 一 程 , 這 個 想 見 報 , 那 個 想 打 擊 對 手 , 中 大 情 色 事 件 , 最 後 誰 也 沒 有 亂 倫 , 反 倒 是 幾 個 「 編 委 」 , 讓 許 多 不 相 干 的 閒 人 堆 爬 上 去 , 瘋 狂 「 抽 水 」 、 「 碌 卡 」 , 像 輪 姦 一 樣 , 幹 了 一 票 羅 漢 的 政 治 順 風 車 。
為 甚 麼 總 把 簡 單 的 事 , 搞 得 很 複 雜 ? 例 如 明 明 是 一 封 提 交 給 大 會 的 意 見 書 , 講 的 是 真 心 話 , 變 為 「 反 黨 」 的 集 團 。 中 大 情 色 事 件 , 大 學 生 的 問 卷 , 本 來 只 是 「 很 」 ( Silly ) , 其 他 人 的 反 應 , 卻 很 蠢 ( Stupid ) , 像 指 聖 經 為 「 歷 史 」 的 盲 光 社 。 也 許 這 等 淫 盲 人 員 的 爸 爸 , 是 跟 一 條 大 青 蛇 搞 完 之 後 生 下 他 們 的 , 像 《 白 蛇 傳 》 淒 美 浪 漫 的 傳 說 。 覺 得 人 獸 不 雅 ?

另外,友人 T 電郵一網站給我, 說世上原來有人也跟他一樣的忍受不了教會人 (教友)。長話不便多說,自己朋友中也有教友,我小時也是讀教會學校,HKCEE 也考過聖經,也曾到過教會崇拜上主日學,所以我也明白這網站所提及的問題。

以下網站,言詞其實十分幼稚,但是當中有不少故事很臉熟,相信很多朋友也遇過,也明白為什麼這些人不喜歡教會。

Motorola's New Phones

News.com has posted some photos for the new Motorola new phones. Which one is the so-called iPhone killer? Check the photos out here.

Microsoft Office Open XML File Format Converter for Mac

Microsoft Macintosh Business Unit just released the beta version of the Microsoft Office Open XML File Format Converter for Mac. This little standalone application can convert the DOCX file format into RTF so it can be imported into the older version of Microsoft Office or other document editors. Why RTF? I have no idea but it seems it is the only option to deal with Office 2007 documents before Office 2008 for Mac released.

Top Gear: Nissan Sunny

In this episode, Jeremy is trying to destroy the Nissan Sunny (after they destroyed a Toyota pickup truck).



By the way, doesn't the car look like those crashing cars in Hong Kong TVB TV episodes???

Windows Live Folder

According to Inside Microsoft, a new web application Windows Live Folder is in beta now. Wait a minute, what so new about Windows Live Folder? Yahoo does that for almost 10 years already and there are tons of similar online storages in the Internet. What's so new about it actually? I don't get it.

Oh, by the way, we are all still waiting for the real GDisk but not gDisk!!!

Who is Reading Your LinkedIn Profile?



LinkedIn just released a new features in beta. You can see who has been viewed your personal profile for the last 2 weeks. I'm using their free account so I can only view a limited amount of people in the list. Recently, I have been contacted by a lot of recruiters in LinkedIn. Yes, Google contacted me again but too bad that their open position is in the Mountain View headquarter.

Motorola is Releasing an iPhone Killer?

According to TechCrunch, Motorola is going to release an Apple iPhone killer in Europe very soon. The new phone will be focus on media. It contains a 30 frames/s video player, supports SD for movies, and 3G. Motorola CEO Ed Zander claims the new phone will directly compete with Apple's iPhone.

“I think it’s [the iPohne is] going to, in some cases, reinforce what we have been trying to do and are doing with the mobile internet. Applications such as multimedia and video and photos and music are going to be done on these devices”

Oh, come on, Motorola. Please fix all the software bugs in your V3 or later first. Plus, the first priority is solving the stupid address book and user interface issues. No way you can beat Apple's user interface design. By the way, please at least using a Linux based OS for the new phone instead of Microsoft Windows Mobile Edition crap.

The Other Photoshop Alternative

We all love Photoshop. The product name "Photoshop" even becomes a verb nowadays. "Did you photoshop your photo?" However, Photoshop is a very expensive product. That's why there are so many products try to do the same as Photoshop. Many years ago when I was still using Windows, I used Paint Shop Pro (now owned by Corel). Later, after I switched over to Linux, I use GIMP. Now, I'm using Mac and I finally pick Photoshop back as my primary photo editing software.

I came across a blogsite and found out this "gem". It's called Photo .NET. It's written by a Microsoft employee as freeware. Yeah, FREEware. The author claims it does pretty much what Photoshop can do. I don't have any Windows machine on hand to try this out. May be you can download and try it. Oh, please let us know how do you like it!!!

Microsoft's Rumor Zune Phone!?!?!

I guess it is Microsoft's response to Apple's iPhone, the oFone.



O... WOW... Is it a joke or something!?!?!

SiteMeter New Version

Not only Google Analysis gets a new update, the "ugly" web analytics tool SiteMeter is also getting a new face and update as well. I use both SiteMeter and Google Analysis together. SiteMeter has some reports that Google Analysis does not have. For example, the referral report contains the actual URL from the users browser.

Same as Google Analysis, SiteMeter just announced the latest changes but my account still uses the old and ugly interface. Hope I will get my account soon.

Google Analysis New Version

I have read blogs regarding the new version Google Analysis yesterday. Last night, I have received emails from Google about Google Analysis upgrade. I was so excited and went to my account to check out the new features. Unfortunately, my account has not been upgraded yet (If you register Google Analysis now, you will access the latest version so no need to wait).

Anyway, I just copy and paste the email I got from Google as following:

Hello from Google Analytics,

We are happy to announce the release of a new version of the Google Analytics reporting interface. Since you are an existing user, you will automatically be upgraded - there is no action required on your part. To access this new version click the "View Reports" link next to any profile in your account by logging in at http://www.google.com/analytics.

For a smooth transition, we've listed some helpful resources and notes below. Also, you will still be able to access your old reporting interface for at least a month by clicking "Previous Interface" below the "View Reports" link for any profile in your account. Other than a few improvements detailed in the version notes below, your data and configuration settings remain unaffected by your choice of interface and your data continues to be tracked in the same way as it was prior to this redesign.

What is new?
In the new version, your reports have been redesigned for clarity, greater visibility of important metrics, and ease of use. Here are just a few of the features you'll notice:
  • Email and export reports: Schedule or send ad-hoc personalized report emails and export reports in PDF format.
  • Custom Dashboard: No more digging through reports. Put all the information you need on a custom dashboard that you can email to others.
  • Trend and Over-time Graph: Compare time periods and select date ranges without losing sight of long term trends.
  • Contextual help tips: Context sensitive Help and Conversion University tips are available from every report.

The following resources are available to help you get the most from the new Google Analytics interface:

  • Report Finder Tool: will help you see where data from the previous interface is located within the new version (it is also linked to from within your reports on the left navigation menu): http://www.google.com/support/googleanalytics/bin/static.py?page=v1v2map.cs
  • Product tour: http://services.google.com/analytics/tour/index_en-US.html
  • FAQs for more details about the new version: http://www.google.com/support/googleanalytics/bin/static.py?page=FAQ.cs
  • Help Center: includes articles related to the new version: http://www.google.com/support/googleanalytics/
  • Support: if you encounter any issues with the new version that you can't resolve with the help center, you can contact our support team through the Contact Us link at the bottom of the help center web page, or receive higher-touch support through a Google Analytics Authorized Consultant. Find one here: http://www.google.com/analytics/support_partner_provided.html
  • Analytics Help Forum: If you would like to discuss the new version or get tips from experienced users, please visit the Analytics Help Forum in English within Google Groups at: http://groups.google.com/group/analytics-help

A few notes about the new version:

  • The new version works best with Flash 7 or higher. Most browsers have this installed already, if yours does not, please download it at Adobe.com.
  • Google Analytics now uses the same geo-data source as AdWords, therefore, map and geo-location report results may vary slightly between the previous interface and the new interface. For those of you with filters designed for geo-data, you may want to verify the results and edit if necessary.
  • Limiting the Available Reports for a profile by specifying which Report Dashboards and Report Categories are available has been removed from the product in favor of the new customizable Google Analytics dashboard. If you would like to limit the availability of data within a certain profile for certain users, we recommend removing those users from the profile and instead scheduling an email to deliver data to them.

We hope you find the new version even more useful and thank you for using Google Analytics!

Google Reader for Wii

I'm sure Google's 25% policy is an excellent idea. It allows its engineers to create lots of awesome and wonderful products. During my visit in Google campus last year, I heard Google Calendar was a 25% Google project and later promote into real product.

Check this out. Google Reader for Wii. It's not a joke. Wii comes with a Opera based browser and Google Reader utilizes all the Wii buttons as short cuts. Again, it proofs the Wii Opera browser is a truly Internet browser.



Browsing Mode
* up/down: scroll up/down
* right/left: next/previous item
* 1 button: show subscriptions
* 2 button: show links

Subscription Mode
* up/down: previous/next subscription
* right: select current subscription
* left: close
* -/+: collapse/expand folder

Now, turn on your TV and Wii and goto Google Reader for Wii.

AAPL vs MSFT (Part 2)

The US stock market is doing real good (especially the technology section). Everyday is up, up, up, and up. Check the following charts out:



















US$106/share vs US$30/share. Do you think Vista win? or Windows mobile win? By the way, really don't know what GOOG is doing. They are making big money but the stock price is dropping everyday.

Sony Ericsson Latest Smartphone P1

Sony Ericsson P1 is still based on Symbian UIQ but it is 25% smaller than the current model P990i. Highlight features are GSM tri-band (900/1800/1900), 3.2 Megapixel Camera, 2.6 inch LCD screen, and push email (Activesync or Blackberry). It will be available in Q3 but no word about when it will be available in North American (usually 1-2 quarters delay).

陳柏宇 - 固執 (一公升眼淚主題曲中文版)

Mable has posted the Japanese lyric for Only Herman Human. She also has the English translation of the song. I join the club and post the Cantonese version as well.



陳柏宇 - 固執 (一公升眼淚主題曲中文版)

A1 懷念有多壞 自己不想了解
從沒有長大 被撇下還依賴…

情陷有多壞 像箍緊的領帶
承認太失敗 被放逐和出賣
無論你多壞 亦束手給你拐
以後我 太掛念你 彷如負債

B1 迷戀你 也是容忍你
誰可以共你比
難倒我 我亦無顧忌
可揀過 都想再遇見你

C1 全心催毀我 也未曾離坐
無窮盡苦楚 封殺不果
捱過痛過太多 情願受難別扶住我
擔心我 的好友 別勸我

A2 盲目有多壞 後果不想去猜
如若要抵賴 賴我未曾長大
名字有多壞 亦想牽手上街
我恨我 惦記著你 反而愉快

B2 迷戀你 也是容忍你
無人可以共你比
如果說 我自尋傷悲
悲不過 一眨眼便放棄

C2 全心催毀我 也未曾離坐
無窮盡苦楚 封殺不果
捱挫折太多 行絕路直行直過
關心我 的好友 別理我
可惜你 總不會 認領我

I really so piss off about how people making money using this way.

Domain for Sale!??!!

After I registered the domain Efania.org and Efania.net for my projects for over a year (I was unable to get Efania.com because it was "owned" by a Korean guy and now owned by a "company"), finally I receive the following email.

Interesting Short Quiz

I copied these directly from Jeremy Zawodny's Blog:

The following short quiz consists of 4 questions and will tell you whether you are qualified to be a professional. The questions are NOT that difficult.

1. How do you put a giraffe into a refrigerator?

Correct Answer: Open the refrigerator, put in the giraffe, and close the door. This question tests whether you tend to do simple things in an overly complicated way.

2. How do you put an elephant into a refrigerator?

Did you say, Open the refrigerator, put in the elephant, and close the refrigerator?

Wrong Answer.

Correct Answer: Open the refrigerator, take out the giraffe, put in the elephant and close the door. This tests your ability to think through the repercussions of your previous actions.

3. The Lion King is hosting an animal conference. All the animals attend.... except one. Which animal does not attend?

Correct Answer: The Elephant. The elephant is in the refrigerator. You just put him in there. This tests your memory.

Okay, even if you did not answer the first three questions correctly, you still have one more chance to show your true abilities.

4. There is a river you must cross but it is used by crocodiles, and you do not have a boat. How do you manage it?

Correct Answer: You jump into the river and swim across. Have you not been listening? All the crocodiles are attending the Animal Meeting. This tests whether you learn quickly from your mistakes.

Yahoo! Auction is Retiring...

After Yahoo! Photo, Yahoo! Auction joins the club of closing down. Effectively in June 3, 2007, Yahoo! Auction will not accept new posting anymore. All the auctions will stop re-submit for the June 3, 2007 posting as well. However, the Hong Kong, Singapore, and Taiwan Yahoo! Auction sites will remain operation.

I think it's is a totally logical move for Yahoo. Yahoo! is still a very popular brand in the Asian countries. People like to use Yahoo! Mail, Yahoo! Auction, Yahoo! Question, and Yahoo Messenger. Due to the censorship, Google has a hard time to get more popular in Asia especially in mainland China.

On the other hand, people in the US in favorite of Google a lot more than Yahoo in the recent years. In my opinion, Yahoo's marketing has a big problem. Have you heard of Yahoo 360? Have you heard of Yahoo Pipes? Do you know del.icio.us belongs to Yahoo? I think most of the people never heard of 360 (Yahoo's "MySpace") although it carries some very cool patients. Average people will not use Pipes since it is more a programming tools. I'm sure there are a lot of people are using del.icio.us but usually people cannot link del.icio.us with Yahoo (and Yahoo bookmark service).

Yahoo does not know what it is doing recently. There are so many services but totally disconnected (Google has the same problems as well). Since Yahoo targets itself as a "media" company instead of a search engine/advertising business, it needs to focus on it's media business since as photo, video, and music.

JavaFX: Sun's Responses to Flash & Silverlight?

12GB Compact Flash Less Than US$100 !?!?!?

Compact flash is getting cheap. We all know that. However, do you believe you can buy SanDisk 12GB Extreme III compact flash for less than 100 bucks (after $80 rebate)?

I'm sure the 12GB version of extreme III must slow like hell. However, who cares!?!?! Get it here.

Bull Shit Friday

Two BIG news in the morning today. The first one is reported by New York Post early this morning. Microsoft (MSFT) is discussing with Yahoo (YHOO) regarding a friendly buyout deal.

"Reports that Microsoft Corp. has started talks aimed at acquiring Yahoo Inc. gave a lift to the tech sector and sent Yahoo shares soaring as much as 16% in early trading. The New York Post first reported that Microsoft was interested in acquiring Yahoo in a deal that could be worth as much as $50 billion. Any such merger would be aimed at thwarting the rise of Google Inc. as the preeminent online powerhouse. See full story. Yahoo shares remained up by $4.50, at $32.68, while Microsoft fell 56 cents a share, or almost 2%, to $30.40. With Yahoo and Microsoft leading the sector's action, the tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite Index rose almost 7 points to 2,572. The Philadelphia Semiconductor Index and the Morgan Stanley High Tech 35 Index also advanced."

$50 billion??? No kidding. In fact, Yahoo is losing ground with Google in the past few quarter. While Google reports it makes a big amount of money this quarter, Yahoo is falling by the rate of 11% per quarter. However, Yahoo presents a symbol of the first dot com wave in the late 90's. If the deal can go through, there is really not much dot com 1.0 company left in the market (although there is really not much left already).

The second big news is about Yahoo again. Yahoo is dropping it's photo sharing site Yahoo Photo. Reported by TechCrunch, Yahoo is switching to it's other flagship photo sharing site Flickr. I think it's really a logical move. However, Yahoo wasted a lot of money to rebuild it's Yahoo Photo into AJAX about a year ago by copying some of the Flickr features. Yahoo is really screwing up in the recent years and they really don't know what they are doing (the other "they really don't know what they are doing company is Sony).

Oh well... what a Friday in tech industry.

Review: Google Apps

Google has released its own application suite, Google Apps, almost for a month. The application suite is basically a bundle of all the current Google offerings (Gmail, Google Calendar, Google Documents, Google Web Page Builder, Google Daskboard/iGoogle), Google Talk in a single package which is bounded with a domain name. I'm sure

There are 3 different versions of Google Apps: Standard, Premier, and Education. Besides the Premier version, the other 2 versions are totally free of charges. Premier provides more reliability, larger storage space, more security and supports. However, for average small business/organization/family, Standard and Education version are far more than enough.

Setup is very easy. You can goto the sign up page to pick which version you want to use. Personally, I only tried the Standard version.

If you already have your own domain registered, make sure you have access to your domain's DNS entry. Either you have your own public DNS in your company/organization or using some public services. However, if you do not have a domain registered yet, Google helps you to pick and register one for a pretty standard price.

Once you have the domain name setup, Google Apps will ask you some very simple questions. For example, how many people are going to use this service? At the end of the registration, Google will help you to setup the first user account. This account will be the first administrator account for your domain's Google Apps as well.



At the end, you will be ended up in the administrator dashboard. In order to activate Google Apps, you need to proof you are the one who really owns the domain. Google Apps provides you 2 methods: Create a HTML file in your web server that contains specific text or Adding a CNAME in your DNS entry. The first method is the most simple way but only if you have a web server already. If you don't have a web server running for your domain (like me), modifying the DNS is the only method. Google provides very detail information about how to do it. However, if you still have no clue how to modify the DNS, you better ask someone who has network administration knowledge to help you.

Google claims it will take at most 48 hours to activate Google Apps for your domain after you have verified that. It took me about 5 minutes though. The next step is activating all the Google applications. The default URL for each application is not using your domain yet. You have to click on each application and change the URL settings. For example, start.yourdomain.com or mail.yourdomain.com or docs.yourdomain.com. Google provides extremely detail explanation on how to modify your DNS CNAME entries. It is very straight forward if you have very simple DNS knowledge. However, mail server is the most tricky one since you have to modify the DNS's MX (mail exchange) record. Again, Google estimates the activation time for each application will be at most 48 hours. However, besides Gmail (after 12 hours and still not done yet), all the applications' activation only took me at most 10 minutes.

For more information, you can visit Google Apps Help pages.

Shopzilla TV Commercial

Shopzilla has made some TV commercial in the past but just very simple one. Finally, it has it's very 1st "real" TV commercial.



In addition, the new Shopzilla.com page will be launched tomorrow. Trust me, the design is a lot better than the current one and even the competitors' ones.

iSerial Reader for Macintosh

The old version of iSerial Reader (version 1.2.4) has been expired. The good news is iSerial Reader 2.0 has been released along with the 05/2007 Serial Box. You can download it from serialz's web site.

I'm not going to provide the link to the download location. I think you should be smart enough to get the URL from this article. ;)

BTW, for those who doesn't know what iSerial Reader and Serial Box is, according to Serialz,

"iSerialReader is the tool for reading the SerialBox and now works in OS X, OS 9 and Windows. It is a small application that contains serial numbers for most popular Mac applications. It is updated monthly and can be downloaded here."

Again, who said Mac doesn't have software? ;)

1 Litre of Tears (Only Human, K)

Mable had posted the MTV of K's Only Human the other day. Seriously, that's the first time I heard that song in Karaoke. I love this song and I think I will try to borrow 1 Litre of Tears (一公升眼淚) to watch.

I searched YouTube and found the other versions of the MTV.

Silent Hill Origin for PSP

I bought my PSP for more than 3 years. It's very hard to find good game on this platform. In other words, my PSP basically is a brick covering with dust on my desk.

If you have the same experience with me, you should check out this video:



Man... I can't wait to get this game on my hand...
