Alright ladies and gents, we’ve just gotten our hands on the 3M MPro150 Pocket Projector. We’re probably the first blog in Malaysia to have one too.
We’ll be looking at the latest pocket projection offering from 3M very closely in the next couple of days to see if it really does what it says on the box. With just 15 lumens under the hood, can this projector about the size of an iPhone really cut it as a must have accessory for road warriors? Will home users have a user for it as well? Ultimately, should you plonk down RM1899 for one?
That’s what we’re going to find out.
In the meantime, do you have anything you’d like to find out about the MPro150? Let us know, we’ll try to include it in the review.
Want to get yourself an MPro150? 3M is giving them away here.

The iPhone HD/4G is not the only mobile device that’s getting the rumour mill buzzing nowadays.
Apparently there has been rumours that Blackberry is working on a new device with a clamshell form factor and solid first photos of this rumoured device is now surfacing on the Internet.
Dubbed the 9670, this new species of Blackberry is probably the first full QWERTY flip-phone in the company’s stable. Essential specs include 5MP camera, WiFi, a 360×480 internal display and a reported huge external display. All pretty standard stuff, except for the fact that the proto device is running the new Blackberry OS 6.0.
We don’t know about you guys, but a clamshell Blackberry just seems weird. What do you think?
Blackberry faithfuls out there, rejoice! RIM has just given you guys a whift of what’s coming in the latest Blackberry OS.
The updates provided by the new OS looks extensive, with a new homescreen that appears to be more touchscreen friendly that previous OS including the one on the Blackberry Storm. The Blackberry OS 6.0 homescreen functions very simillar to how the iPhone homescreen works where you can add pages and flick through them left and right.
The new OS also includes a new browser that allows for fast tab switching, full multitouch support across almost all of the native applications with pinch to zoom as well. There’s also and updated media player with a very coverflow looking interface.
You can read the full details here and if you’re waiting, the Blackberry OS 6.0 is expected to be available towards the end of this month at the same time as Blackberry WES event.

The story goes a little bit like this…the victim was sent to run an errand, to go to the nearest Apple store to purchase an iPad as a business gift for someone else.
He purchased the iPad and went on his merry way. Just outside the Apple store from which he bought the iPad, thieves were already waiting to snatch it away from him. They tried to snatch the iPad from his hand but the strings of the paperbag containing the device got caught around his pinky. The thugs were so determined to get the iPad that they yanked the paperbag so hard it ripped the flesh, muscle and tendon of the victim’s finger.
His finger had to be amputated.
“the iPad, it’s a toy, I don’t even know what it was”, says the victim who counldn’t understand what’s the fuss is all about with the iPad.

We got news for you Johan, all of us expect the latest. So get cracking on bringing in the iPhone HD/4G to Malaysia ASAP!
Let it be known to all that we’re really not a fan of Foursquare.
Ok, maybe blaming the game is not right…actually, we’re really annoyed with the check-in cheaters on Foursquare.
That’s not really the surprise, the real surprise here is that the establishment offering the deal is probably the last vendor you’d expect to use social media to promote thier business. Indeed, they are not your normal run-of-the-mill, social media friendly establishements like Starbucks or something along those lines.
Kudos to @sseme, the creator of the mayor deal. But we still hate all you check-in cheaters out there. Shame on you!
