My buddy has sent in a mail of this young beautiful lady. Mail titled “Your Dream Girl”. Guess who is she? I don’t have the answer, but she must be some famous for some reason I guess. I have look around the net. Definitely not Paris Hilton of course, there are two possibilities, Jennifer Katharine Gates (Bill Gate’s daughter) and secondly an actress named Alyson Stoner. But most claims that she’s Gate’s daughter, isn’t she?

It’s located at my country, at Langkawi, Malaysia. It is called the “Sky Bridge”, a cable-stayed bridge supported by only one support column, suspended at 700 meters above sea level. This unique curved pedestrian bridge spans 125 meters across a spectacular chasm. While the view from the bridge is simply breathtaking, you’d be able to view the Andaman Sea and Thailand’s Tarutao Island as well. The bridge was completed in October 2004, the structure relies on an 87 meter high support column to hold the weight of the deck, this weight distributed through 8 load balancing cables attached to its head. Maybe I should visit one day.

There’s someone who are too free spending their time editing those logos, but well that’s fun, I did that too sometime ~ photoshopping myself like a superman, hehehe. They are trying to confuse you with the brands. Can you recognize those logos? I’m sure you can remember at least half of them right or maybe all because those are powerful company.

Some computer keyboards harbour more harmful bacteria than a toilet seat, research has suggested. Consumer group Which? said tests at its London offices found equipment carrying bugs that could cause food poisoning. Out of 33 keyboards swabbed, four were regarded as a potential health hazard and one harboured five times more germs than one of the office’s toilet seats.

To clean your keyboard you should shake dust and food crumbs out of it and then wipe it with a soft, lightly dampened, lint-free cloth. They should also be disinfected with alcohol wipes.

If you’re a gadget/design person (like many industrial designers are, I’m sure), you’d certainly have come across Engadget and Gizmodo, the twin titans in the consumer gadgets arena. And if you’re a frequent visitor, you’d certainly also notice a less-than-friendly relationship between the two blogs, as in any good ol’ fashion rivalry, with each blog racing to bring the latest and juiciest in gadget-o-dom. But just how bad (good?) is it?

Wired has a rather comprehensive and interesting look behind the scenes, outlining how much the bloggers do to get an edge over the other. In a battle for online eyeballs lusting for gears, speed and exclusivity is indeed critical – many times it can really boil them to a matter of minutes for one blog to earn the bragging rights for being the first to cover major product releases. Much like high-school fraternity rivalry, perhaps.

Describing the ‘war strategy’ for Gizmodo during the Consumer Electronics Show (the SuperBowl equivalent in Gadget-dom) coverage, for instance:

No wonder Lam has been devising his CES strategy for the past 12 months. As soon as the 2007 show ended, he made a 2008 reservation at the Hilton, the hotel closest to the convention center, to serve as Gizmodo’s war room and “infirmary” for bloggers needing a midday break. He also reserved a block of rooms at the Imperial Palace because it was close to the Las Vegas monorail. That meant his writers could avoid the hour-long taxi lines that have come to define CES. And, of course, Lam expects his staff to sacrifice for their art. “In Thai boxing, the trainers don’t allow their fighters to have sex for two weeks before a match,” whispers Lam, a onetime kickboxer, “and the trainers can tell if they have, because it makes them lazy.” He shakes his head and pokes an accusing finger at one of his bloggers.

Today the Firefox crew released the final beta (next release will be the first release candidate) of the upcoming Firefox 3 browser and Percy Cabello over at Mozilla Links has put together a nice 4 page review of the latest release. The Beta 5 contains over 750 (!) fixes since the last version and it looks promising:

What is left? From a user perspective I would say almost nothing besides some retouches here and there to the user interface. Behind the scenes, however, work never ends: performance improvements, web standards compliance and edge cases are still being ironed.

Firefox 3 Beta 5 is here, and reviewed [mozillalinks.org]

Microsoft is offering the an upgraded version of Windows Vista Home Premium bundled with one year subscription of Windows Live OneCare and a copy of a Windows Vista tips and tricks book. It comes in a lovely girlish pink packing and it’s only available in Japan.

Because of the Windows Vista SP1 in Japan that comes with toilet paper showing the highlights features, so I thought they are coming out with some napkin packing design this time, when I first saw it. hehe.

Kyocera has announced the world’s fastest high-resolution inkjet printhead for commercial application, the new KJ4 series printhead. It will go on sales globally starting April next month. The KJ series has a full-color print speed of up to 200 meters per minute at 600 x 480 dpi, or 150 meters per minute at 600 x 600 dpi (that’s about 1,000 sheets of A4 paper per minute). It comes with the widest print line of any printhead in its class, spanning 4.25 inches (108 millimeters).

During the development, Kyocera has applied their proprietary piezoelectric ceramics technology to create a compact piezo actuator3 for a critical element of the printhead.
