Tron Mouse by Razer

I’m not a fan of Tron (yet). But the Tron Mouse by Razer got me really excited. The Tron mouse is not just a gaming mouse with 5,600dpi laser sensor. It has a ultra cool blue light at the side that makes the mouse look like the light cycle from the movie. It even produce a sound during startup.

But the best part is when you use the Tron Mouse on the special mouse pad. When the mouse move across the mouse pad, it leaves a fluorescent trail behind. Check out the video.

Damn freaking cool lah!

But here’s the only problem. This ultra cool Tron Mouse by Razer comes with a S$199.90 price tag. Ouch. But if you can afford it, you might also want to know that Razer will be releasing a matching Tron keyboard next month S$249.90.

McAfee “Mapping the Mal Web” report 2010

I didn’t notice that McAfee released their “Mapping the Mal Web” report 2010 in October. I thought this sort of things is usually released at the end of the year. Anyway, if you remember, .sg domain is ranked 10th riskiest in the world back in 2009.

Which is why I have special interest in this year’s report. I wanted to see if we have improved. It can be pretty damaging to Singapore’s online reputation if our country’s top level domain name remain risky for a long period of time.

Well, I’m glad that .sg domain has made significant improvement. .sg domain has fallen from being 10th riskiest to 81th riskiest (out of 106 TLD). That’s pretty impressive.

According to Singapore Network Information Centre (SGNIC), .sg website is governed by SGNIC’s registration requirements to ensure accountability. A .sg domain name applicant is required to show appropriate documentation when registering a domain name under the various categories of .sg names. For example, a .com.sg registrant would need to provide proof that it is a commercial entity registered
with the Accounting Regulatory Authority of Singapore (ACRA) or any professional body. For registrations by foreign corporations, the applications have to be supported by a Singapore contact address.

When SGNIC receives adverse feedback about the usage of a .sg domain name, it will investigate immediately. Any name involved in cases of misrepresentation or fraud, or is used to host material that breaches the laws or rules of the regulatory authorities are rectified by registrants, failing which, they are liable to be suspended or deleted by SGNIC.

These strict policies helped improve our ranking significantly. In fact, I’m still wondering how did we even managed to get into the top 10 riskiest domain ranking last year. Oh well, glad that we are much safer now.

Midnight Riders – All I Want For Christmas (is to kick your ass)

This is not your usual Christmas song. In fact, The Midnight Riders are a fictitious band from Left 4 Dead 2.

Midnight Riders – All I Want For Christmas (is to kick your ass)

Haha hoho
Alright
Merry Christmas
Yeah
I’m naughty, not so nice
Someone who wants you dead.
Know when you’re sleeping and I know when you wake.
Got a sock full of bolts and I’m hiding under your bed.

Got your cookies, got your milk
Got my shotgun trained on the chimney
Stole my woman and all I want for Christmas is to kick your ass!
All I want for Christmas is to kick your ass!

White big gloves, satin suit looking down on me from your sleigh
All I wanted was my blue eyed babe but with his sack and his grin he winked and they rolled away

Got your cookies, got your milk
Got my pit bull chained to the chimney
Stole my woman and all I want for Christmas is to kick your ass!
All I want for Christmas is to kick your ass!
Yeah!

Got a list, I checked it once.
No need to check it twice.
All I know is tonight I’m gonna pound ya
Take my woman and you’re gonna pay the price.
Got the ghost of Christmas present
You’re the ghost of Christmas past
Stole my woman and all I want for Christmas is to kick your ass!
All I want for Christmas is to kick your ass!
All I want for Christmas is to kick your ass!
All I want for Christmas is to kick your ass!
All I want for Christmas…
All I want for Christmas…
All I want for Christmas…
All I want for Christmas..

Top Trends on Twitter 2010

Twitter recently released the top 10 Trends in 2010. According to Twitter, 25 billion Tweets were sent in 2010. And these are the top 10 topics that people say on Twitter.

Top 10 Twitter Trends of 2010
1. Gulf Oil Spill
2. FIFA World Cup
3. Inception
4. Haiti Earthquake
5. Vuvuzela
6. Apple iPad
7. Google Android
8. Justin Bieber
9. Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows
10. Pulpo Paul

I’m quite surprised that Gulf Oil Spill top the list. Perhaps @BPGlobalPR is partially responsible for it.

3 of the top 10 trenad are related to World Cup (FIFA World Cup, Vuvuzela and Pulpo Paul). Interesting.

Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows is a very recent movie. (Released on 11 Nov 2010) Yet it managed to squeeze itself into the top 10 list. This goes to show the power of Harry Potter. Inception ranks number 3 in the list. This is not really a surprise. I keep seeing people talking about Inception when it was showing in the cinema.

There’s only 2 tech gadgets in the list, Apple iPad and Google Android. I was hoping to see more.

And I’m very very surprised that Justin Bieber isn’t number 1 in the lis. In fact, he is positioned number 8. There is still hope for Twitter.
