Apple has announced the release of their second generation iPhone. The launch date for the new iPhone 3G is planned for 11th July 2008. Apple will be launching the new phone world wide in stages.
Apple has also slashed the price of the new iPhone. USD199 for the 8GB model and USD299 for the 16GB model. This will surely boost Apple’s market share in the coming months.
iPhone 3G does come with a few goodies under it’s hood. GPS, full 3G support, App Store, support for Microsoft’s exchange server, support for more languages and many other enhancements including a scientific calculator.
I’m still waiting for Google’s Android before making any decision on what my next phone might be.
Oracle got into the Linux playing field with it’s Oracle Enterprise Linux which is based on Redhat’s Enterprise Linux. Oracle then put together the Oracle Unbreakable Linux support program to provide full Linux support to their customers.
Oracle Unbreakable Linux support is not limited to only Oracle products. Customers can switch any of their current Enterprise Linux environments over to the Oracle Unbreakable Linux support program and at a lower cost. If I’m not wrong it’s as simple as running a RPM file.
This was the scene at the petrol kiosk near my housing estate in Cheras.
I did not fuel up and so did many of my friends. We tried our luck at kiosks around but all of them had piles of cars waiting to fuel up. It just wasn’t worth it.
Waiting in line for hours just to save 30 bucks is not me. I’m gonna eventually have to follow the new increased price moving forward so instead, I decided to not smoke for 3 days to cover my loses.
Think green for nature and your pocket. I know many don’t agree with me on this but this is just my opinion.
Defensio has been down since yesterday.
My spam aren’t being filtered, I can’t access my Defensio quarantine page and users are unable to post new comments.
Their hosting provider Amazon (EC2) push some software which caused Defensio’s services to go down. The team’s currently working on the issue and updated can be tracked through their blog and twitter.
It’s RUMORED that the new fuel price in Malaysia effective midnight today will be raised from RM1.92 to RM2.70. That’s a 78 cents hike which adds up to about 40%. My Wira gonna cost me about RM110 for a full tank.
Looks like the petrol pumps around town are gonna be filled up today.
You endorse the hike? I do, time to think green I would say.
