Streamyx, the self-proclaimed #1 broadband provider in Malaysia, can really inspire the best out of Malaysians – the best irate customers that is.
We recently discovered this parody Twitter account taking pot shots at Streamyx and find the musings of its mysterious writer very funny. So much so that it’s worth a mention for you to have a look.
Lacking any social media presence whatsoever, we’re not going to expect Streamyx to respond to this or to the many other anti-fan Streamyx sites online. Streamyx is the only major broadband provider that doesn’t have any official social media presence, even newcomers like P1 have official representation in Facebook and Twitter.
They are quite a number of people out there who hate Streamyx with a passion capable of rivaling South American football fans. All you need to do it google “streamyx sucks” and you’ll see what we mean.
So where do you stand? Are you a Streamyx lover or hater? Hit us up with your comments!
If you have an iPhone and is a serial free apps downloader, then you’d probably heard of freeappaday – the place where you get to download paid apps for free for a limited time. And as the name suggests, there’s a new free app every day.
It’s a pretty good website, if you haven’t heard about it you should check it out.
The problem with the site is that it has been exclusively serving free iPhone apps, but not anymore.
Oddly enough, there’s currently only one Android app listed on the site.
Well, not quiet, but for US$2.99 you can install on your iPhone an authentic, albeit virtual, Star Trek Communicator like the one used in the original Star Trek series (the one staring William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy and George Takei).
The app features actual voices of Captain Kirk, Spock, Dr. McCoy, Scotty, Lieutenant Uhura and sound effects as well as lights and motion replicating the actual prop.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t come with a starship that will be beam you up whenever you feel like it.
A part from being just an eye-candy app, the communicator also allows you to access your contacts and make calls directly from the app.
If you’re a die-hard Trekkie, yeah, you will want this. But if you’re like the rest of us — maybe not.
Here’s the iTunes link if you’re interested.
Google has introduced a new experimental app development project called App Inventor for Android. This allows anyone to develop android apps with no programming knowledge required. What it offers is a development kit that lets you design your app WYSIWYG style on your web browser.
