Olaf the Snowman Stickers now available on Facebook Messenger app

Have you watched the movie Frozen? Then I bet you love Olaf the Snowman. You can now use images of Olaf on your Facebook Messenger app simply by downloading the Disney’s Frozen sticker in the Sticker Store.

Best of all, these stickers are free.

Too bad we only get Olaf. I was hoping we can have some stickers of Anna, Elas, Kristoff and his reindeer Sven.

Another fake Ministry of Manpower website spotted

Two days after spotting the fake Ministry of Manpower website, the Ministry issued another statement saying that there is another fake website.

The fake website is at http://www.movgov.sg. And they call themselves the Ministry of Workpermit. Haha.

The fake website is trying to imitate MOM’s employment practices page.

Interestingly, the domain name of the fake website was registered on 16 May 2013. Which means the site might have been there for couple of months.

I still don’t understand why SGNIC and IDA allowed people to register a .SG domain ending with ‘gov”. There should be additional checks before anyone can get a domain ending with “gov”.

LG G Flex Self Healing

LG announced a curved-screen smartphone, the LG G Flex recently. But perhaps the biggest feature of the phone is not the curved screen. The phone was coated with a “self-healing” material.

It is not scratch resistant. It is “self healing” like Wolverine from X-Men. The special material on the back of the phone allows it to recover from light scratches within minutes. Check out the video.

Very impressive. Great for those people who don’t like phone covers. No news on when the LG G Flex is coming to Singapore yet.
