Here’s a pair of stylus with a nostalgic twist. Instead of the standard, humdrum pen-like pointing apparatus that we’re used to, designer Mike Mak from Hong Kong Polytechnic University School of Design, harks back to the digital past to bring back this pair of delightfully designed styluses.
Inspired from the cursor designs of yore, the Big Big Cursor and Big Big Arrow styluses are ruberised, magnetic to perfectly complement your iPad 2 or your fridge.
Asking price? A fair $12.99 (about RM40) for either design. There’s also free worldwide shipping. Definitely adding this to cart.
#damnyouautocorrect! We definitely feel for the brother.
Good news for those who will be performing the Haj soon and you happen to be a Maxis postpaid subscriber. Through its partnership with Saudi Telecom, Maxis will be offering a special Saudi Telecom SIM card which will enable pilgrims to make or receive calls and SMSes within Saudi Arabia at local rates. The Saudi Telecom SIM card comes preloaded with 25 Saudi Riyal prepaid credit, which offers customers approximately 40 minutes of free talk time.
With assistance from Tabung Haji, the SIM cards will be distributed free of charge to the pilgrims at various departure locations, namely Selangor (Kelana Jaya), Johor Bahru, Penang, Terengganu, Kota Kinabalu and Kuching, before the pilgrim leave for Saudi Arabia.
In total, Maxis will be distributing 17,000 special SIM cards to pilgrims.
In addition to that, Maxis is giving its postpaid customer a 30% discount on roaming calls made to Malaysia to any fixed and mobile numbers. For pilgrims who would like to share their Haj experiences via Facebook and Twitter Maxis is also offering a special unlimited data roaming rate of RM48 per day during.
Both offers are valid from 1 October until 15 December 2011.
While the Government and telcos are busy imposing taxes on prepaid packs and reloads, what are they doing to protect subscribers from scammers like this one.
These vermin are getting creative with the way they bait unsuspecting subscribers and its easy to fall into their trap if you’re not careful.
Don’t fall victim to such scams, following the instructions on the such messages will allow these companies to send more text messages to your mobile number and charge you ridiculous amounts of money for receiving them. Worst of all, it’s almost impossible for an unknowing subscriber to unsubscribe to the service.
Best to ignore such SMS and submit a formal complaint to MCMC and your service provider. At the same time the regulators and the industry are not doing enough to eliminate these scams. It’s disturbing to see that such scams are still running rampant.
