Disney’s TRON Legacy is coming to big screen and Coke Zero has released a location based mobile game for iPhone users.
LiveCycle revolves around the TRON lightcycles and uses your iPhone‘s GPS to plot a light paths across a virtual map. To play simply draw as many paths as possible and if another player collides with your path, you’ll score points for each collision. To join the game, LiveCycle uses your Facebook login. From the trailer video, this looks seriously cool and it is available on the AppStore in Malaysia. If you’re a big fan of TRON or location based games, download the app now by searching “LiveCycle”.
Android users don’t fret as an Android version is coming soon. More details at Coke Zero’s site.

The free usage offer is only applicable for data so calls and SMS made will still be chargeable at RM0.09/SMS or a minute of call.
In addition, Yes has extended the activation deadline for those who have pre-registered for a Yes ID and a 018 number to December 12.
Despite having issues in the beginning, such positive gesture is welcomed and it is the right step forward in handling its challenges faced. We can see that Yes is genuine about delivering Internet for all.
Assuming that Yes now have 15,000 subscribers, and that the data charge is set at the maximum rebate price of RM0.02 (30% rebate), this free data exercise will cost Yes a whopping RM3.15 million (RM21/GB X 10 X 15,000).
We’ve recently managed to perform some tests on the Yes 4G network and the results does look very promising. Check out our first impressions and recent KL Test drive post for more information on the performance of the Yes network.
We’re hoping Yes will be able to sort out these issues as soon as possible and kudos to YTL Comms for this free usage move.
Eligibility details below:
For all Yes customers who sign-up before Dec 19 2010:
We offer you complimentary data services, up to 10GB per Yes ID on our network, from the launch day until Dec 19 2010. Data billing will begin on Dec 20 2010. However, charges still apply for our Yes 018 telephony services (voice and SMS).
For all pre-registered customers:
We will also extend the activation deadline until Dec 12 2010. Those activated Yes IDs will be entitled to enjoy complimentary data services until Dec 19 2010 as well.

Celcom Axiata has revealed Malaysia’s first ever Windows Phone 7 bundle ahead of Maxis. The bundled device is the LG Optimus 7 at an attractive price of RM777 only for the first 150 units. The Optimus 7 RRP price was mentioned as RM2099.
For the RM777 promo, you are tied with a 18 months contract and a RM300 upfront payment is required. If you wish to cancel halfway, a RM500 penalty applies. So far they haven’t release the normal bundling details after 150 units. Perhaps they are waiting to see what Maxis has to offer on the HTC HD7 which is happening later today.

UPDATE: Celcom’s LG Optimus 7 revealed, RM777 promo for first 150.
LG’s Optimus 7 will be announced by Celcom today. It was speculated earlier that LG will be introducing 2 devices this week and Celcom will be an exclusive telco for the devices. The other device rumoured is the Android running LG Optimus One. The launch was revealed on twitter by TianChad.
Earlier, we took with the Yes Go USB dongle for a spin and we’ll be the first to admit that we were quite impressed with what the Yes network has to offer. In our stationary tests, we managed 5Mbps downloads and 2Mbps uploads with only two bar reception with the test done on the 17th floor. We know that the network is still new and there’s still very little load on it but even by this measure the speeds that we’re getting are rather impressive for a wireless network.
This was stationary tests but since Yes touts its 4G network as mobile we wanted to know how mobile is mobile. Yes’ closest competitor — P1 — has been in the market for the good part of two years with a claimed population coverage of around 40% and even with a good head start, P1 still can’t claim its network as a mobile network.
How does Yes fare in comparison? First up, Yes already has a lead in terms of coverage with a claimed 65% of the population covered. Next, Yes offers an all-4G mobile phone and a 4G MiFi, two devices P1 doesn’t have in its product arsenal at the moment. Based on this, it seems to us that Yes has their sights set on taking a few chunks of the mobile market from the 3G boys. And so, that will be the bar that we will measure Yes with.
We’re expecting the Yes 4G mobile network to deliver strong and consistent performance in places where 3G would as well as while traveling in between these locations — just like 3G. We will be looking for seamless connectivity and we will also be looking to answer some of the questions that you’ve asked in our comments section. How does the Yes Go and the Yes 4G network handle hand-overs between sites? Does it disconnect when switching base-stations?
Find out the answer to this and more in our road test of the Yes 4G network within Klang Valley.
We hope that yes is doing the necessary fixes on its erratic portal especially when it comes to YesID activation. Many had complained until today of not being to access their accounts especially those who pre-registered earlier. We will monitor their site tomorrow and see if our YesID works.
