王力宏得獎輪流被吃豆腐

彭亨‧雲頂27日訊)王力宏在第二屆《My Astro至尊流行榜頒獎典禮》拿下6獎成為最大贏家,讓人眼睛大吃冰淇淋的蔡依林以5獎居次,在大馬合體的飛輪海則有4獎在握。王力宏除了被主持群輪流“吃豆腐”,王明麗在拿獎演唱時也順勢要求握手和擁抱。

雖然蔡依林同樣是眾男爭抱的對象,但大家始終不敢“越雷池半步”,讓蔡依林“護身”成功。

第二屆《My Astro至尊流行榜頒獎典禮》特設“電動走道”,從歌手席一直延伸到舞台。由於歌手席的座位高人一等,所以歌手們的一舉一動全被歌迷盡收眼簾,而小鬼(黃鴻升)、王力宏偶爾坐累了伸懶腰的動作,更讓歌迷們尖叫不已。不過,海外歌手進後台的次數很是頻繁,讓歌手席很多時候都無法坐滿。小鬼、神木與瞳、徐佳瑩算是全程最少走動的海外歌手,小鬼獲頒“至尊新人(海外)獎時則驚訝表示,“我已經這麼老了還可以拿新人獎哦?”

東於哲本地歌手贏家

東於哲今年拿下3獎,成為本地歌手最大贏家。他們擊敗多位海外偶像,以12萬1千472票拿下至尊人氣歌手,阿哲竟得意忘形表示,“我媽為了上網幫我投票,一個月沒好好做飯,我爸不會用電腦,但卻會上網投票哦!”唱功精湛的丁噹、神木與瞳、缺席的 Hebe田馥甄和陳奕迅則同樣拿下3獎。

飛輪海最大牌代領獎人

將於6月來馬開唱的蔡依林,先以露肩小禮服登場,後來再換上半透視裸背褲裝,大展性感身段。她火辣登場後,現場氣氛頓時升溫!她和錦榮的定情MV《玩愛之徒》雖然也拿下至尊金曲獎,但她現場卻選唱《美人計》,掀起全場最高潮。

而飛輪海可說是現場最大牌的“代領”藝人,兩度上台代缺席的師姐Hebe田馥甄領獎,他們本來只拿下2獎,但在MY Astro至尊金曲增加至25首後,他們再摘2首至尊金曲獎,共有4獎在握。

主持人謀福利

主持人林德榮、尹匯雰、R&B(Royce陳志康和Bernard邱文博)不時為自己謀福利,也預告《天天好天》將於4月15日在台灣正式上映。尹匯雰一開場就抱足王力宏20秒,喚王力宏Baby也喊得非常自然,讓R&B後來也效法稱王力宏為Baby。R&B抱了神木與瞳的黃美珍後,也抱了AK和丁噹,可說是“男女通吃”。

力宏摘下他響往的“至尊製作人獎”時,興奮的和4個主持人抱在一起,大腿甚至還環在尹匯雰身上,他後來表示,“人在激動的時候,會不知自己在做些甚麼。”問他怕不怕被過度熱情的尹匯雰“傷”到?他竟幽默表示,“還好!我有拉筋。”

曹格:不再丟大馬人臉

原定頒發20首的MY Astro至尊金曲,臨時增加至25首金曲,現場一共頒發56個獎項,全程4小時的頒獎禮,出席的歌手人人有獎,永不落空。去年坐冷板凳的王明麗,今年 “發功”拿下合唱曲和至尊女歌手(大馬)2獎,她更有感而發表示,“這電動跑道就像站在娛樂圈一樣,你若不前進,就一直往後退。”缺席的曹格拿下至尊金曲和至尊男歌手(大馬)2獎,他通過視頻感慨表示,“感謝大家包容我的不完美,我以後不會再丟大馬人的臉。”

Also known as Open Cab or RAP (Rear Access Panels) Cab in some markets, the Super Cab is an innovation introduced by Ford on the Ranger in 2002. It has a unique four-door system that provides unobstructed access to the cabin via two forward-hinged doors and two rear-hinged access panels. An uncompromised side-impact safety structure replaces the centre pillar of a traditional Double Cab.

Ranger also comes in 4×2 and 4×4 drivetrains and two ride heights with the 4×2 Hi-Rider sharing the same frame as the 4×4 model. The Ford Ranger is among the new vehicles that follow the One Ford platform, the same design/models will be released in all markets.

Saimatkong Supports Earth Hour 2011 – Switch off your lights!

Saturday, March 26th, 2011 3,558 views

Earth Hour

What is Earth Hour? Do not know what’s Earth Hour? Read below to understand more.
You know and aware of Earth Hour? Do your part then. =)

Earth Hour is a global event organized by WWF (World Wide Fund for Nature, also known as World Wildlife Fund) and is held on the last Saturday of March annually, asking households and businesses to turn off their non-essential lights and other electrical appliances for one hour to raise awareness towards the need to take action on climate change. Earth Hour was conceived by WWF and The Sydney Morning Herald in 2007, when 2.2 million residents of Sydney participated by turning off all non-essential lights. Following Sydney’s lead, many other cities around the world adopted the event in 2008. Earth Hour 2011 will take place on March 26, 2011 from 8:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., at participants’ respective local time.

Source : Wikipedia

Earth Hour is about taking simple steps everyday that collectively reduce carbon emissions – from businesses turning off their lights when their offices are empty to households turning off appliances rather than leaving them on standby.

What Will You Be Doing During The Earth Hour?

Here are 10 different ways to spend Earth Hour and reduce your carbon footprint:

1. Attend a local Earth Hour event or organise your own by throwing an Earth Hour street party with your neighbours
2. Gather family & friends for a night picnic in your local park and look at the stars
3. Enjoy a family dinner by candlelight
4. Organise a treasure hunt in the dark
5. Take the dog for a night walk
6. Have a candle-lit bath
7. Sit in the dark and share stories
8. Organise a family night playing board games
9. Share a romantic night in with your loved one
10. Upload your ‘on the night’ photos and videos to flickr and YouTube respectively, and then add them to the Earth Hour flickr group and the global YouTube Group.

If you have nothing to do or you want to join the crowd, you could join Earth Hour at Sunway Pyramid.

Earth Hour at Sunway Pyramid

WWF-Malaysia invites members of the public to stand together with the world in a global celebration of the one thing that unites us all – our living planet. From its inception as a single-city initiative in 2007, Earth Hour has grown into a global movement where hundreds of millions of people from every continent join together to acknowledge the importance of protecting our planet. Earth Hour 2010 was the largest voluntary action for the environment in history with lights going out across 128 countries and over 4,500 cities worldwide.

Come celebrate Earth Hour 2011 on Saturday 26th March 2011 at the Oasis Boulevard, Ground Floor in Sunway Pyramid. Look out for our team at the WWF-Malaysia booth.

It’s pretty much same as the Samsung Galaxy S, but the different between the 2 model is Samsung Galaxy SL using Super Clear LCD instead of Super AMOLED screen which can be found in Samsung Galaxy S. Also there’s a slight increase of the size and thickness of the Galaxy SL to fit the bigger capacity battery, from 1500 mAh to 1650 mAh.

Check out the video on the New Samsung Galaxy SL.

What I like about this Samsung Galaxy SL
- The screen is really awesome and it’s sharp and crystal clear! It provide clear visibility in broad daylight.

- Get to sync with all Google products easily.

Free Androids Apps!

Minor disadvantages
- Camera do not have flash
- No dedicated camera key
- The all-plastic body is a real fingerprint magnet but it’s really light!
- Increased thickness (10.6mm), height (123.7mm) and weight (131 g) compared to the original Galaxy S (9.9mm, 122.4mm and 119 g)

Datuk Lee Chong Wei vs Lin Dan in All-England 2011 Final

Monday, March 14th, 2011 6,534 views

Finally Datuk Lee Chong Wei 李宗伟 beat the Super Dan (Lin Dan 林丹)! It was awesome to see how Lee Chong Wei play in the games. Datuk Lee once again showed that he’s world no.1! Congrats! Datuk Lee won in 2 straight games 21-17, 21-17. Datuk Lee has finally overcome his fear and manage to control Lin Dan!

Datuk Lee Chong Wei vs Lin Dan in All-England Final

It’s really great and you could see that there’s tons of people mention about the great win in Twitter. You can check all the tweets that with the hashtag #LCW,#MalaysiaBoleh, #AllEngland

Some even mention that why there’s no Public Holiday? But according to our PM’s @NajibRazak Twitter there’s no Public Holiday. Lolz.

NajibRazak Mohd Najib Tun Razak
Sorry tmrw not a public holiday. We have to rejoice in Chong Wei’s victory n at the same time work hard so that we have more victories.

Check out the video footage on how Lee Chong Wei cleared the final shot to win the All England title against Lin Dan!

This time Lin Dan cannot take off his shirt and do naked hip-hop dance but it’s our Malaysia Hero Datuk Lee that dance with his jersey and kissing on Malaysia flag! I just love his attitude! Koo Kien Keat and Tan Boon Heong, please learn from your senior!

PETALING JAYA: For the first time, Malaysia’s Lee Chong Wei truly felt on top of the world.

Yesterday, Chong Wei showed who was the real boss on the court when he defeated his nemesis, Lin Dan of China, 21-17, 21-17 in a highly-charged 52-minute final to retain the All-England title.

It was a priceless win and an ecstatic Chong Wei slumped to his knees in sheer delight before rising to the thunderous applause of the fans at the National Indoor Arena in Birmingham.

It was the first time that Chong Wei had beaten Lin Dan to win a major title and the record between the two archrivals now stands at 7-18.

With the win, too, Chong Wei reaffirmed his status as the world No. 1 and also hung on to the number one standing in the Super Series rankings.

And Chong Wei also became the first Malaysian to retain the All-England title since Eddy Choong pulled off the feat in 1956 and 1957.

But more importantly, the win yesterday showed that Chong Wei has the ability to come out of Lin Dan’s shadow and be a real challenger for the Olympic gold in London next year.

Lin Dan, gunning for a second consecutive Premier Super Series title after nailing the first in South Korea, got off to a smashing start but it was not too long before Chong Wei got into the groove.

Looking more confident and focused in his approach, Chong Wei piled up the pressure on the three-time world champion, often catching Lin Dan with his clever moves at the net and showing incredible defence to frustrate the Chinese.

They were tied at 8-8 and at one stage Lin Dan was affected by a bad line call and it allowed Chong Wei to pull away to 17-10.

But Lin Dan, who was ironically more interested in playing rallies than using his lethal attacking shots, fought back to 17-18. But that was as far as he went as Chong Wei snapped out of the spell to take the first game.

The second game was even tighter as both tried to outfox each other with their tight net shots and super fast counter attacks until they were tied at 17-17.

Instead of buckling under pressure like he used to before, a cool and composed Chong Wei romped home to take four points in a row to land himself a third title of the year after victories at the Super Series Masters Finals in Taiwan and Malaysia Open in January.

National coach Rashid Sidek hailed Chong Wei’s achievement as a big breakthrough.

“He played a superb game and was able to overcome the psychological barrier against Lin Dan,” he said in a telephone interview.

“He not only handle the challenge from Lin Dan well but he also executed excellent counter attacks to pressure Lin Dan. That to me is a big improvement.

“Today, Lin Dan was making most of the mistakes and he was unable to kill some of Chong Wei’s shots. Chong Wei, on the other hand, maintained a consistent pace.

“Chong Wei has always been criticised for winning the small tournaments. But this time, he defeated Lin Dan for a big one.”

Even AirPlay-enabled apps and websites get the big-screen treatment with iOS 4.3. And if your photos are the feature presentation, you can play a slideshow with all the stunning themes available on Apple TV.

Safari Performance

Safari Performance

Surf at the speed of fast. As you surf the web, your fingers will love the responsiveness of the new Nitro JavaScript engine powering Safari. It runs JavaScript up to twice as fast as in iOS 4.2.2 Which means you get more speed behind each page load. And sites with lots of interactive features can appear on your screen even faster.

iTunes Home Sharing

iTunes Home Sharing

Share over the air. Now you can play your entire iTunes library from anywhere in the house. If it’s on your Mac or PC, you can play it on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch over a shared Wi-Fi network.3 And not just music. Watch a movie or TV show. Play a podcast. Or listen to an audiobook. On whichever device you want — without having to download or sync.

iPad Side Switch

Switch it up. Customize the switch on the side of your iPad to lock the screen rotation or mute the volume. So you can lock your iPad display in landscape or portrait. Or quickly go from volume on to volume off. Just configure the side switch in Settings to toggle between your options.

Personal Hotspot for iPhone 4

Personal Hotspot for iPhone 4

Get online in more places. On the road, in an airport, at the park — now you can bring Wi-Fi with you wherever you go. Download iOS 4.3 on your iPhone 4, and the next time you find yourself without access to Wi-Fi but in 3G territory, enable Personal Hotspot and share your cellular data connection with your Mac, PC, iPad, or other Wi-Fi-capable device. You can share your connection with up to five devices at once over Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and USB — with up to three of those connections using Wi-Fi.4 Every connection is password protected and secure. And it’s power friendly, too. iPhone detects when your Personal Hotspot is no longer in use and turns it off to save battery life.

Sometime to note before installing new Apple iOS 4.3 Update :

1. AirPlay is compatible only with the second-generation Apple TV.
2. Testing conducted by Apple in February 2011 using SunSpider JavaScript benchmark version 0.9.1 with prerelease software and shipping hardware. Actual results may vary.
3. Requires iTunes 10.2.
4. Personal Hotspot requires a supporting hotspot tethering plan from your carrier and works with up to three devices over Wi-Fi, three devices over Bluetooth, and one device over USB.
5. Multitasking is available with apps that have been developed to work with iOS 4.
6. Requires an AirPrint-enabled printer. See http://www.apple.com/ipad/features/airprint.html for a list of compatible printers.
7. Once you create a free Find My iPhone account on your iPhone 4, iPad, or iPod touch (4th generation), you can use your Apple ID and password to enable the same features on your other devices running iOS 4.2 or later.
8. Game Center works with apps that have been developed to work with the Game Center service.
