So, the previous example of using the DeepZoom feature of Silverlight 2.0 wasn't exactly great and didn't show the potential of the function. But now.. here's a better example. First of all if you don't have Silverlight 2.0 installed yet.. go install it first cause Silverlight Streaming doesn't yet properly automated the Beta's installation.

The demo is here, it'll open up in a new window. Controls are still simple cause I have no time to change the previous code, so.. Click and Drag to move around the picture, Left Click to Zoom In, Shift + Left Click to Zoom Out.

My colleague came across an interesting problem with a mobile web portal he was working on. It was the typical problem description that you'd get when you work on mobile web portals, something that worked on other phones weren't working on another phone. Only thing was, the phones that failed weren't dumb low end phones, but a Nokia Series 60 N73 smartphone. I wrote down my little adventure finding the solution.. it's a full page of text so only continue if you're interested.

Malaysia just had it's general election last Saturday.

It was interesting to note that it's probably the first elections where the Internet played a heavy role as well as the traditional media channels and of course.. SMS propaganda. Much were flung around by supporters of both sides. How much of it is true? I have no idea, but I'm wary of any thing without proper proof from both sides.

The opposition won a lot this time around, and we're headed from some interesting times for the next 5 years, so... we'll see how lar.

Finally I got myself a small little portable 8GB thumb drive.

Only thing is that it's not really just a thumb drive but rather an 8GB Micro SDHC card.

It just amazes me that how far we have come in terms of how much we can fit into something this small now. And how low prices have got on these things.

On a nice side note, this is the FIRST SD card that I have found that supports ReadyBoost in my U1010's SD card slot. NICE!
