Anyway,for those who often streaming online radios such as Flyfm,Hotfm,Sinarfm and others must have noticed the plugin required to be installed to be able to start streaming which is called Octoshape.Octoshape is a plug in which is Malaysian made?!? Wah..Looks like nowadays Malaysia is enhancing its technology better and better.Even though the streaming wasnt quite smooth for me but still the quality is much better tham before.

However,youtube throttling only works on .flv extension videos with a the standard flash videos.But,by ading
&fmt=18at the end of each video link will automatically changed the videos extension from .flc to .mp4 so this will remove the throttling...
Hope fun buffering guys!
Here's one of the most easiest ways to gain traffics and even followers to your blog is by putting a chatbox.Then,surf other blogs and write 'blog walking' or 'follow me' so that other bloggers can visit your blogs and maybe become your followers.So in easiest words to say,cooperative is the key for traffic besides having such a great contents.Advertising your blog to forum or social networking sites such as FaceBook,or even myspace can also increase your blogs traffic but not quite efficient as the previous method....So,bloggers,keep blogging and blog smart!!

Microsoft is planning to release and distribute a new update for Windows 7’s built-in activation and validation system (Windows Activation Technologies) as an intensifying of anti-piracy and anti-counterfeit effort. The new update will be delivered via Windows Update, with title of “Update for Microsoft Windows (KB971033)” by late February. The KB971033 can be individually downloaded from Microsoft Download Center starting from February 17, but will be available online on www.microsoft.com/genuine beginning February 16, 2010.
According to Genuine Windows blog, the Windows Activation Technologies Update for Windows 7, this update will detect more than 70 known and potentially dangerous activation cracks or exploits. Activation exploits are sometimes called “hacks”, and attempt to bypass or compromise Windows’ activation technologies.
The blog post further explains how the KB971033 update will work:
Once installed, the Update protects customers by identifying known activation exploits that may affect their PC experience. If any activation exploits are found, Windows will alert the customer and offer options for resolving the issue – in many cases, with just a few clicks. Machines running genuine Windows 7 software with no activation exploits will see nothing – the update runs quietly in the background protecting your system. If Windows 7 is non-genuine, the notifications built into Windows 7 will inform the customer that Windows is not genuine by displaying informational dialog boxes with options for the customer to either get more information, or acquire genuine Windows. The desktop will be switched to a plain desktop (all of the customer’s desktop icons, gadgets, or pinned applications stay in place). Periodic reminders and a persistent desktop watermark act as further alerts to the customer.
Other that activation cracks and exploits, the main controversy of the KB971033 is that the update will “call home” to Microsoft every 90 days initially. The callback to the Microsoft’s activation server serves as an additional layer of periodic validation, which allows that WAT system to download latest and updated signatures that are used to identify new activation exploits in order to verify and determine whether the Windows 7 installed on a PC is genuine or pirated, and take various actions to change the user experience and behavior of the PC if the WAT decides that the system is not genuine or properly authenticated, even though the system is still activated at the point of the time.
In short, KB971033 update for Windows 7 activation and validation system may not be the exploit detector itself, but just a introduction of mechanism with ability to establish authentication verification connections to central servers to download piracy signatures database from Microsoft as and when needed in order to combat new activation cracks or methods. By doing so, Microsoft can dynamically update WAT system, instead release complete update for WAT again in future.
Luckily for pirated Windows 7 users, KB971033 Windows Activation Technologies update is optional and voluntary. It’s marked as Important update in Windows Update, and user can choose not to install the update. Initially, it will be rolled out to Windows 7 Home Premium, Professional, Ultimate and Enterprise editions. It should be available to all Windows 7 and Windows Vista systems in the end. After installed, user can still uninstall the KB971033 easily, however, once the system is flagged as fraudulent, not genuine, pirated or illegal, it will stay so despite the update is removed or uninstalled.
In fact, KB971033 Update for Windows Activation Technologies have been leaked to Internet for everybody’s download since early February, and long discussion thread on My Digital Life forums has been debating on how far the update will go to invalidate and deactivate various cracks and hacks for Windows 7 such as loaders (softmod) and BIOS-mod (hardmod). As the update depends on online update for new signature, which does not seem to active or go live yet, so the actual effect of the update is not yet known.
Most do however agree, based on Microsoft’s track records on WGA update on Vista platform, that the WATU (WAT Update package) will mostly deal with activation cracks which modify the activation or licensing files, such as Chew-WGA and RemoveWAT Win7 activation crack, and numerous other “derivative” cracks and exploits that may include virus or Trojan horse (hence the explanation for 70 odd exploits available in the wild). The update will attempt to repair core licensing system files that have been tampered with, disabled, removed or changed illegally, which effectively disable the activation hack.
For user who wants to install KB971033 update to verify the legitimacy of the Windows 7 system, it can be downloaded via the download links below:
However there are some users saying that by removing wat technologies by using this patch...
RemoveWAT 2.2.4 *BUGFIXED* by Hazar (2010-02-19)
If the WAT update is installed After RemoveWAT...
* No nags or notifications appear
* Does NOT pass microsoft.com/genuine
* DOES pass all validation checks for downloads
* DOES allow the installation of MSE
* DOES allow optional updates
* WAT phones home but does nothing
(So nothing except that stupid site)
If RemoveWAT is installed after WAT....
* It will disable the WAT update and function normally
* RemoveWAT will disable the update from phoning home
Or...You can just easily hide this KB971033 (aka WAT) dated 28th of January 2010 update so that your previous loader or crack is still working...just like mine..

Here's a little tool I coded in VB that you guys might find useful... but it only works for Premium users with direct download enabled. You'll need NET Framework 2.0 or newer to run it, and there's little error checking in the program so be careful when you enter the URL's.
The program also doubles as a link checker, though that's not the main purpose of the program. Let me know if there any problems and I'll try to fix it ASAP.
The file is clean, but for the paranoid ones you can upload the file to VirusTotal and see for yourself.
wish me luck guys...

Most files on the internet especially the illegal ones are hosted on another virtual filehosting server such as Rapidshare,Megaupload,And Hotfile.However,in order to enjoy premium download speed we must have a premium account which is had to be bought of course for a really cheap price.Buying a premium download service that offer maximum download speed is something that we must say valuable isnt it.
So,lets start by first buying your premium account either for rapidshare,megaupload,or hotfile.Then you'll need to have to source website such as; http://warez-bb.org , register as free member to allow access to their downloading section.Then you'll going to need Internet Download Manager manage your downloads efficiently which can also be found at warez site.
What is a torrent?Torrent is a small file (around few kilobytes) with the suffix .torrent, which contains all the information needed to download a file the torrent was made for. That means it contains file names, their sizes, where to download from and so on. You can get torrents for almost anything on lots of web sites and torrent search engines.
Torrent is the most popular way of downloading large files, including movies and games (remember legality of downloading)
Downloading with a torrent is advantageous especially when downloading files, which are momentarily very popular and whitch lots of people are downloading. Because the more people download the file, the higher speed for everyone (see torrent principle).
- torrent is a file
- with torrents you can download almost everything on the net
- every file (or set of files) need to have an unique torrent file to download it
- to download anything through a torrent you need a torrent client
You probably already tried another ways of p2p sharing - torrent is just another method. The original BitTorrent client was written in Python and it has been made open-source. Thanks to that, we have a large variety of torrent clients today. Just choose which one you like.
This is the original Bit Torrent logo
How to download files with a torrent?
Downloading with a torrent is actually very simple. You just need a rightly set torrent client (setting your connection speed is usually all you need to set). Then you open the torrent file inside your client, set a place where you want to download desired files and then just wait till it's downloaded. Downloading with a torrent is no more complicated than using any other p2p application, but even simpler.
p2p stands for peer-2-peer,which means that every file n every users pc can be accessed and downloaded by other users easily by using p2p software.
The most popular p2p sharing softwares are ; limewire;frostwire,bearshare,kazaa,ares,azueres..
All these softwares are open source programs that are available for downloads at their vendors website.By using p2p softwares,we can download all copyright protected materials easily and this does affect the publishers as the world of piracy is enhancing year after year.
Buying an original cd album would cost you but downloading is free and alot faster.The technologies are such a convenient for the users but not for the publishers.In the next post,i'll explain about torrent and how does it differ from p2p?!
So my subscription for my KAV (most likely the hack method isnt working anymore?!) has ended so its either for me to buy a new one or renew my current subscription.Ive been using Kaspersky AntiVirus since version 5 and now its version 8 already.However the product quality does seems to lowered as this new version does take quiet a load on the memory usage.
So I decided to try COMODO antivirus as it is free.Been using it for 2 weeks already but somehow this antivirus doesnt suit me well even though the memory usage is damn low compared to Kaspersky however the first time update is such a pain in the ass.The first update is around 120mb++!!! Had to wait for almost 30mins to finish up the update.And not to mention ALOT of false positives as half of my softwares are being quarantined because of false positives even though i did like it though..
Then,I tried my self with the new Norton Antivirus.I always hated Norton a few years back then as the antivrus itself is a BLOATWARE.However after reading some positives revies by the users so I thought to give it a try.And the installation and very easy and i didnt even required to restart my pc and the NAV just smoothly and amazingly the memory usage is just around 5-7mb which is extremely low compared to KAV.So,thanks to Symantec team for their hard work making NAV such a better product..

Doctors and only earn alot when they further their studies to became a specialist.Then salary will be around rm20k at government.And private does offer alot more that that...
To some people, this will be obvious, but some others are still oblivious to this fact. Yes, without doubt, sales is one of the highest paid professions not only in this country, but in the world. What kind of products to sell? It could be anything – services, products, insurance, unit trust or other investment tools.
If you like the job, and consequently perform well, then you will be on top of the world. Normally, salesman will be compensated in the form of basic salary and commission schemes. The basic salary may be small, but the commission is proportional to the sale you make. The more products you sell, the more commission you earn.
The more customers you get, the more sales you bring in. Hence you get more income. In other words, as long as you can sell, the sky is the limit. A successful insurance salesman with a client base of about 100 people will earn a handsome income reaching five digits in a month, and will continue receiving the commission for a number of years.
One of the things I realized about this profession is that the longer you stay in the business, the more rewards you get and the easier your job becomes. The most difficult part is always at the beginning.
I have a close friend who is a Sales Accounts Manager for an IT company handling a portfolio of major corporations including IBM, Maxis, Hewlett Packard, DiGi and others. He is now in his early 30s and is having a prosperous career with his monthly commissions (excluding his basic salary) exceeding RM10, 000.
One day, I asked him, “What is your secret?”
“There really is no secret. I started this job with this company 8 years ago as a struggling salesperson. My company was selling all sorts of products and solutions but our products were failures one after another. Nevertheless I kept on trying and I bulldozed through things and we corrected our mistakes along the way. I did not make a single commission until my FOURTH year in the job.
Today, I spend very little time looking for clients, as they will come looking for me. The commission I am receiving today is enough to enable me to reach my goal to retire in 5 years time and open up my own business with the funds I have.”
2. Certified IT Network Engineer.
For those who are in the IT field, this is where you can capitalize. Certification is considered necessary for you to be recognized by the prospective employer on your competency level in your field.
The most common are perhaps the MCSE (Microsoft Certified System Engineer), MCP (Microsoft Certified Professional) and CCNA (Cisco Certified Network Associate). But because there have been too many people enrolled in these certifications, the market for professionals with MCSE, MCP and CCNA certifications are easily available, hence your pay will not differ much.
You will provide yourself with a good foundation to grow with those certifications, but they won’t immediately skyrocket your income. But if you upgrade yourself to a more niche area, and enroll yourself for CCNP (Cisco Certified Network Professional) and CCIE (Cisco Certified Inter-network Expert), then you’re ready for a fast track income.
Not many people in Malaysia are willing to go the extra mile to get these certifications, due to the very specialized and relatively complex nature of the course.
In mid 2004, while working with one recruitment firm, we were assigned to place an IT expert in one of the IT companies listed in the Bursa Malaysia. This IT expert must have a CCIE certification. We managed to talk to six to seven possible candidates.
At the final round of the listing, there were only two suitable candidates left, and in order for the company to get the final short listed person to join them onboard, they had to pay him RM12,000 salary per month, tripled of what the guy was earning that time. And he was only 27 years old. Now can you tell me how long you need to work before you can get such an income?
3. Foreign language speaking executives and professionals.
Malaysia is now well known among the multinational and foreign corporations as an excellent place for setting up Shared Service and outsourcing centers.
“AT Kearney ranked Malaysia as the world’s third most attractive location for Shared Services and Outsourcing (SSO) – behind India and China.”
Shared services or outsourcing center is a place where major processes, including customer service support, payroll, account processing, IT infrastructure related and others are integrated and managed in one place.
For example, companies like SCICOM, VADS, IBM, EDS, VSource, Hewlett Packard and Atos Origin are well known to providing IT and customer service support to their clients. On the other hand, some other major companies like Shell, DELL, DHL and BASF have their own shared services and processing centers.
As a shared or outsourcing centre, the support provided not only cover the operation in Malaysia, but also abroad, including China, Hong Kong, Australia, Japan, Thailand, US, Europe and others. If you can speak Mandarin or Cantonese you may have only a little advantage as there are plenty of people in Malaysia who can do so, but what if you have proficiency in Japanese, Thai or German?
If you can speak the said languages, and you have a background in Accounting, Business or IT, then you have a niche area to zoom into. You could probably be hired to support an Account Payable division supporting the Japanese worldwide users, or maybe handling requests and customer service relating to PC and hardware problems for users in the Thai language.
And because of the scarcity of people who can speak Japanese, Thai or German, companies are willing to pay high salaries for these people to join them.
4. Oil and Gas – exploration and offshore operation.
Exploration and offshore operation jobs have its own risk, and not surprisingly those who are in this area are highly paid. Normally the job is carried out by the contractors for major oil operators e.g. ExxonMobil, Shell, Petronas or others. For example, Schlumberger is one of the established vendors who carry out exploration for Shell, Petronas and other oil operators.
Be advised that you need to be flexible enough in terms of the working location because as the projects vary from place to place, you could end up doing exploration in any part of the world.
This could be in Africa, Emirates, Asia or any others. If you are interested in working in this area (of course, you need to have a basic background in Oil and Gas), you can go to Oilcareer website at www.oilcareer.com to see the availability of high paying jobs.
Another niche area is in IT. SAP is a growingly popular and robust application that provides users with the ability to interact with a common corporate database for a comprehensive range of applications. It manages and supports wide range of functions including financial, asset, cost accounting, production and materials, warehousing, human resource, plants and database archiving.
Major corporations in Malaysia are using SAP as part of their system, including IBM, Microsoft, Accenture, Infosys, Shell, British American Tobacco, Hewlett Packard and others. As a SAP personnel, depending on your area of competency, you could be manning the support function for SAP applications, or be in the hands-on programming.
For instance, competent SAP personnel with 4-5 years of experience can easily be earning RM5,000 to RM6,000 monthly.
Nowadays the demand for telecommunication expertise is increasing. This is mainly due to the hostile competition between the telco players. New technologies and solutions are provided as the years go by. The development of 3Gs and Wimax, for example, has created a niche and high demand of expertise.
Major telco players in Malaysia like Maxis, Celcom, MiTV and DiGi outsource the setting up of radio frequency and telecommunication infrastructure for their vendors. But this is not limited to telco companies in Malaysia only. Other international players are also growing and leveraging the implementation to their vendors and contractors.
These vendors will charge the companies a good deal of money for the contract or projects they carry out. This, in turn enables them to pay the workers huge sums of money, normally in US dollars. You will get an even higher compensation if you work for short term contracts and projects, e.g. 3-6 months.
The jobs may be a bit volatile with EPF contribution and other normally given perks in a full time job unlikely to be covered, but the contracts are renewable, depending on the availability of other projects.
For example, I know at least 5 people who work with a telco vendor completing projects for Nokia all around the world that are getting a DAILY salary of US250. They are working for 3G roll out projects covering the planning, testing, implementation and optimization of radio networks. Now, imagine, if you get paid daily for a 3 months project in Germany. Subtracting weekends, that’s 22 working days per month.
So 22 days x USD250 x 3 = a whopping US16,500, equivalent to (roughly) RM59,400. Isn’t that a lot?
7. Analyst programmer with a software house.
A software house provides and manages IT infrastructure to major institutions e.g. banks and financial services, oil and gas companies and many other major corporations. Now, if you’re attached to any of those software houses which provides services to their clients regionally or worldwide, chances are you will be engaged in overseas projects.
A normal analyst programmer may be getting a basic salary of merely RM3000 to RM3500 per month, but you will get additional allowance (a lot!) if you are posted overseas. Normally, if your projects are abroad, you will be paid a daily allowance on top of your basic salary. Top software houses will pay a staggering amount of US100-200 daily for your overseas assignment.
Now imagine, if the project lasts for two months, how much is your coup there?
Again here, this area needs expertise in specific IT areas and systems e.g. implementation of credit card related applications using languages like COBOL, UNIX, AS400 and others.
So back to the question again? Why does blackberry is so expensive compared to other mobile phones even though its specifications are not so up-to-date.The main reason is because of the BIS (Blackberry Internet Service) which is a 24/7 service that offered update on every email,sms,or even your social networks updates you can get it on the go without a fuss as you are connecting to the BIS 24/7.Thats also why Blackberry only provided to the local operators as it required unlimited data plan to allow BIS to work.
So,next time time when you want to buy a Blackberry,think again is it worth it?
oh well...this is...
