Hi everyone, this is my first time being a guest blogger at DK’s. Well I really wanted to do an entry titled “The dark & dirty secrets you never knew about DK” but I realised that he’s got none of such secrets that I know of. Haha oh well so anyway here’s my first entry.
I am sure some of you have heard of the new HTC Hero, and yes it’s coming to Singapore, and yes the public finally have a chance to get a sneak preview of this “Hero”.
So for those who are keen, do register early. You might catch me there at the event! *Winks*
P.S. Too bad someone will only be released on the 5th and cannot go… …
According to a recent study, Microsoft Internet Explorer 8 is the most secure browser in the world. The study was conducted by US based security research company NSS Labs, and included testing for Google’s Chrome, Firefox 3, Opera 10 beta, Safari 4, and Internet Explorer 8.
The study says that Internet Explorer 8 and Firefox 3 were the most consistent in the high level of protection they offered while Apple’s Safari 4 performing the poorest in every test. (Brilliant. And I’m typing this blog entry on a Safari 4)
But here is an interesting part. The study is funded by….. make a guess. YES! Microsoft. Haha.
I don’t know about you, but I’m taking this study with a pinch of salt. There is no doubt that IE8 is a lot more secure. But the most secure? Maybe we need a truly independent study to find out.
Hello fellow readers!
Firstly, thanks DK for giving me the opportunity to vandalise his blog for the very first time 😛
A short introduction first, I am Jacelyn and I blog at daintyflair.net 🙂 Shameless plug I know, that’s what I am here for (kidding :D)
I am still cracking my brains what to blog here. Feel free to give me ideas! Too techie like DK, I don’t know la. But I don’t mind plastering cutesy stuff here LOL! 😛
I’m always worried when someone comes up with contest to name something. We Singaporeans are the “most creative” people when it comes to naming contest. Some of the winning “creative names” from naming contest includes:
The Budget Terminal named as “Budget Terminal”
The Bukit Panjang LRT named as “Bukit Panjang LRT”
Marina Bay named as “Marina Bay”
So when I heard that the SCDF is having a naming contest for its new Fire Fighting and Rescue Vehicle, I begin to worry. Honestly speaking, I’m afraid someone will name this as “Fire Fighting and Rescue Vehicle” or Red Rhino 2. (OK, maybe Red Rhino 2 isn’t that bad, but just boring)
Anyway, the closing date for the contest is 31 Aug 2009. Winning entry will receive $1000 and there are also 10 consolation prizes of $200 each. You can submit your entry here.
If you are taking part, PLEASE give it a proper name. I’ll definitely curse and swear at the person who submit “Fire Fighting and Rescue Vehicle” and win.
