Why is it that after getting an immunity shot the baby might end up getting a fever? Why is it so hard to get babies to take medicine?
Why is it so hard to measure the temperature of a baby?

I’ve already admitted that I made a mistake getting this the last time.

The aluminum case for my Diamond really ain’t working out too well, finally after using it for the last few months I’ve come to the following conclusions.

  • GSM is slightly affected by the aluminum case
  • 3G/HSDPA is moderately affected by the aluminum case
  • Accuracy and sensitivity of internal GPS is ADVERSLY affected by the case.

Also.. the fact that the controls aren’t really covered by the case means…

Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!! I’m gonna go order another proper leather case from PDAir now, the one which I was intending to get BEFORE I got seduced by the aluminum side…

Who wants to buy this aluminum one off me? I’ll give you a special price! ;)

This is what I picked up just now. And no, I didn’t buy another system to put in the house.

With other objects in view, it’s clearer how big it is. So.. what exactly is it?

A bloody USB chill pad shaped like a refrigerator. With A LIGHT no less! I’m just amazed at what they put on the other end of a USB cable.

So how well does it work? Well… it’s a chill pad so it help maintain the coolness of your CANNED drink, but don’t expect it to actually work like a fridge and cool something that’s room temperature…. actually maybe it MIGHT work, just that it’ll take a LOOOOOONG time. Also, the fact that you want to keep the can on the pad when you’re not drinking is a bit difficult since you’ll have to watch it when you replace an opened can back into the fridge.

I bought this cause they were throwing away sales premiums (hence the HP logo), maybe I’ll try and remove the chill pad from inside the fridge so it’ll work better.

When I posted this video of Sony Malaysia's Ooopsie during the local PS3 launch.

Then I tipped Kotaku about the video since they reported about our local launch I thought they might as well be told about the little blooper.

Seeing the comments and effect after that was interesting. The Sony fanboys got defensive, the Nintendo fanboys starting thumping their chests. But of course there are also sane people who pieced together the fact that since the launch had Soul Calibur 4 fronting it, it's very likely that someone choose the Zelda theme from a Best Of Soul Calibur soundtrack CD, which in Soul Calibur 2, featured Link on the Gamecube version.

It took about 2 days before the first accusation that I dubbed over the music. Kinda thought that would have happened sooner. Some people feel that the fact that there's a volume difference between the MC and the background music, hence there must be something a foot. But the volume difference is because I'm just using a simple handheld camera to record and these things like to play with the microphone gain depending on what it hears. Also the MC's microphone and the music source must be piped through a mixer and hence have different volume settings.

But I was most surprised when I heard that the clip was shown on XPLAY!! It's at the end of the clip.

Having the incident cataloged on the Internet is one thing, but to have it be broadcast on television, doomed to be repeated to the masses over and over again? That's an interesting thought.
