As more people come online, dangers of being online, and the dangers of being attacked by someone you don’t even know from a country you’ve never even heard of become more apparent. It then becomes paramount for tech giants like Google — on which a lot of us have most of our lives stored — to push for a safer internet environment.
However, the security that they implement can only do so much if you don’t take this seriously too. So, here are 5 tips Google’s shared to help you stay just that little bit safer when you’re browsing online.
If you don’t have access to fibre broadband and 4G LTE, CONNECTme might be your next best alternative for high-speed connectivity. Launching on 8 March this year, CONNECTme is a satellite-based broadband service that promises 100% coverage throughout Malaysia.
Since it uses satellite, weather can greatly affect its quality of service. If you’re wondering how it’s like when it rains, CONNECTme has shared a video of a speed test that’s conducted while it’s raining.
The future of cashless payments is exciting stuff. This utopian future where you don’t have to carry around fat, receipt-filled wallets nor queue up for ages at an ATM machine to withdraw cash. So far, we’ve seen quite a few promising contenders playing in this space already, but the latest one to join the fray may be the most promising one yet.
The best way to get your home online is definitely with Fibre broadband. For those who are not covered, the next best alternative would be 4G broadband. Unfortunately, some people don’t have access to these two options. For these underserved population, they don’t have much choice except for ADSL services like Streamyx or slower 3G/2G connectivity.
Now it appears there’s a new player in town and it promises to provide 100% coverage throughout Malaysia. This means every home can enjoy faster speeds where Fibre and 4G aren’t available.
The world is coming online and with that, habits are changing, most notably how we purchase goods and services. In the past, you had to crowd with everyone else doing their last minute holiday shopping but now you can get practically everything you need with a few simple taps.
Malaysia’s no different and the meteoric rise of e-commerce is almost scary. But every revolution has its victims and with such a drastic shift in how people discover and purchase goods, some start to wonder what’s going to happen to all the local brick and mortar small-medium enterprises (SMEs).
I mean, that’s what Google does best right? They take mundane things, dress them up, give users a slick new interface and suddenly everyone’s using it. Well, except social media and chat apps, they just cant seem to get those right (RIP Google Plus and Allo + Duo).
This time, they’re tackling a topic that plagues pretty much all of us: Limited mobile data quota. With their new app Datally, it looks like they want to make it so anyone can easily save data effortlessly. Good guy Google.

It looks like the recent typhoons around Hong Kong have caused some serious damage to several undersea cables. These submarine cables (ASE, AAG, TGA-IA, SMW3) connect South East Asia to the United States.
