Yahoo! oneSearch and oneConnect

Continue my Super Duper Whooper delayed posting.

After the LG performance, we hope over to the Yahoo! booth at CommunicAsia. It is hard to miss Yahoo! booth. There is a big sign that says “Reinventing the mobile internet”

And from the 2 services that they are showcasing, they really seems like inventing the mobile internet.

Yahoo! oneSearch is a mobile search engine which allows you to use voice instead of typing. All you need is to say the things that you are searching for and bingo, everything is there for you. The voice recognition software is pretty impressive.

I don’t know about others, but I still feel weird talking to a machine. The search is pretty impressive. I think I still prefer to type my question instead of saying them out.

Then we check out the upcoming Yahoo! oneConnect. Yahoo! oneConnect seems complicated. It allows you to communicate with your friends regardless which social network they are in. Be it facebook, friendster, twitter or linkedln, you can view their status and communicate with them from one source, Yahoo! oneConnect.

Not launched yet. But I guess it will be launched soon. Will talk more about it when it is out.

Yahoo! gave us a very nice looking lanyards that wrote “Yahoo! VIP”. This made all the invited bloggers stand out from the others who are wearing the boring blue CommunicAsia lanyards. I bet a lot of people are staring at us when we walk around CommunicAsia.

Yahoo! gave us a small bag filled with door gift. There is a laptop bag, a nice writing pad, a pen, some press release (No soft copies!) and a very interesting (and senseless) button that sings “Yahooooo…” when you press it. Haha.

My nephew loves it. But my sis beg me not to give him. Else there will be no peace in her house.

Many thanks to Yahoo! for the invite. Thanks to Fleishman Hillard and Gavin Foo for hosting us. And thanks to Sabrina for inviting me. So sorry about the super duper whooper delayed post.

LG KF750 Secret Black Label Series

OK, I know this is super duper whopper delayed post. (More than 1 month already)

I was invited to the LG booth at the CommunicAsia 2008 last month to check out their latest Handphone. The LG KF750 Secret Black Label Series.

It is a very stylish looking phone. Very professional looking. The best part about this phone is that the screen is made from tempered glass. Which means the screen is scratch proof. Woohoo!

The spec is pretty impressive. 5 Megapixel camera with auto focus and face tracking, 100mb internal memory and 2.4 inch screen. Everyone is queuing up to play with this device. I only managed to play with it for a while. Cool stuff.

After the guided tour around the LG booth, we were told that there is going to be a performance at the stage area. LG invited some Korean dancers to perform at CommunicAsia. I managed to capture the performance on video. My arm muscles were aching after that. OUCH.

After the performance, we moved over to the Yahoo booth. Another late post coming up.

Many thanks to LG for the invite. Thanks to Fleishman Hillard and Gavin Foo for hosting us. And thanks to Sabrina for inviting me. So sorry about the super duper whooper delayed post.

New Rubik’s cube official world record

I thought it’s going to be a while before anyone breaks the 8.72 seconds record. But I was wrong. Someone broke the Rubik’s cube 3x3x3 world record at the Czech Open 2008 recently.

7.08 seconds. Wow. How did they do it?
Go back to practice on my own Rubik’s cube.
