Beckham plays Beethoven’s Ode To Joy

Here’s an interesting advertisement of David Beckham playing Beethoven’s Ode To Joy with footballs.

It’s an advertisement for the Samsung Galaxy Note. But unfortunately, it wasn’t taken in one shot. And the advertisement didn’t really showcase much about the Samsung Galaxy Note’s unique features other than the front part where they use it for planning.

But hey, when you have a successful product like the Galaxy Note, you don’t really need much advertisement. Just a cool advertisement with a celebrity will do.

They say that you will most likely think of someone in your past when you first hear “Someone Like You” by Adele. For me, that person is you.

It has been 5 years since we first met. I miss you.

Regrets and mistakes, they’re memories made,
Who would have known how bittersweet this would taste?

Rotary Club of Singapore donation was non political?

I wonder if the President of Rotary Club of Singapore think that Singaporeans are morons. Who will actually believe that your $100,000 donation to PAP Desmond Choo’s toilet upgrading program is non political?

Firstly, the donation was announced 2 days before the Hougang By Election. The donation given to the PAP candidate for Hougang By Election and was announced by the PAP candidate during the By Election. And the donation only benefit Hougang SMC and not the whole of Singapore.

Tell me, how is this not with political intention? By doing this, Rotary Club of Singapore is indirectly supporting the PAP Candidate for Hougang during the By Election period. Who knows, maybe this donation managed to swing the 2.7% to the PAP camp.

If the donation is non political, why was it announced during the By Election period? Why is it restricted to just Hougang resident? Why is the donation given to a program managed by a politician? Why isn’t the donation given to a NGO instead?

And since when is Rotary Club allowed to take part in political activity? Isn’t it supposed to be non-partisan? Perhaps Rotary International should look into this.

Mark Zuckerberg makes a cameo appearance in Chinese police video

OK, this is totally random. But hey, check out this Chinese police video. Facebook’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg and his newly wedded wife make a cameo appearance at the 0:29 mark.

It is still unsure why Mark appears in the video. Is the world really so small that he happen to walk infront of the camera while they were filming? Or was it a planned appearance? Or maybe it was digitally added. (eeerr…. ok, why would anyone want to do that?)

But nevertheless, it is still funny to see Mark Zuckerberg in the video. After all, Facebook is still banned in China.

Creative teases Sound Blaster Axx

It’s been a while since we hear anything from Creative. It seems like the company is gearing up for the launch of a new generation Sound Blaster.

Creative is currently asking the public to guess what the next generation Sound Blaster will be. The most accurate and creative answer will win the product.

The product will be unveiled on 30 May 2012. Not sure exactly what is it. But I highly doubt that it will be a Sound Card. Most likely they are just hoping on the Sound Blaster branding. I guess maybe they are launching a new Tablet.

So what do you think Creative is launching tomorrow?
