May this be a lesson to all of you out there, using your mobile phone in the toilet is very dangerous.
This man from Jiangsu Province in China was so desperate to get back his mobile phone that he accidentally dropped into a toilet bowl that he ignored the very obvious fact that putting his hand all the way up to his armpit into a toilet bowl is indescribably disgusting. Making matters worse, his hand got stuck and had to get emergency services to take him out of the revoltingly messy situation.
Even if he does manage to scoop out his phone after all this, getting it cleaned and making sure all the crap has been removed to be usable again would render the phone useless (on the account that phones and water don’t mix). So it begs the question, what the hell was he thinking?
WhatsApp Messenger is now officially available on Android Market and it is FREE for the first year. As comparison, Blackberry users pay US$1.99/year with 90 days free trial while iPhone users pay a one time US$0.99. Nokia users however are also paying US$1.99/year but they similarly get to enjoy it free for the first year as well. So it is quite likely Android users will pay $1.99 after that.
So what are you waiting for? You can search it up on the Market or download via AppBrain here.

P1 claims that its network is now “stronger, wider and faster” and the operator has developed a new advertising campaign to shout this from the proverbial rooftop.
In conjunction with new advertising campaign the WiMAX operator has also introduced a new Super Broadband package with Super Quota allowing customers to share monthly data cap across two devices. This means if you’re currently signed on to P1’s home plan with a data cap of 10GB per month, you can use that data cap with P1’s portable WiMAX dongle as well.
Effectively you have one plan with one data cap but two devices that you can use it on. Sounds interesting but this Super Broadband plan comes with an additional charge of RM20 per month with no additional data added on. That means you’re paying RM20 just for the option to use the data cap across devices, which is terrible marketing if you ask us. Who’d want to pay an additional RM20 per month just so you can use your data cap on another device.
We don’t mind a one time fee, or if P1 still insists on a monthly fee for the option, then add on another 5GB while you’re at it. Sorry P1, you can add all the super you want in front of everything but to us, this is a nonsense plan.
At the same time P1 has also announce that it doesn’t like to be called P1 W1MAX and wants to be referred to as P1 4G. P1 CEO Michael Lai was quoted saying in a press release made available to use that “WiMAX is a 4G technology and we are the leading player in the 4G broadband space. We will always provide our users with the best connectivity using the best 4G technology available but that technology may not always be WiMAX”
This is shocking considering he has always been a strong supporter of WiMAX and has been known to say “we (P1) live and die with WiMAX“.
In any case, as users of the P1 service we haven’t felt any noticeable improvements in terms of network performance and stability. In fact, it has been the other way around with the occurrence of isolated outages being more frequent than ever before. Let’s not even start with the indifferent customer service attitude.
So it makes you wonder whether this “stronger, wider, faster” thing that P1 is talking about is all smoke and mirrors.
What do you think? If you’re a P1 subscriber, how has the service been of late.
While Android users are getting their dose of Angry Birds recently, iPhone users had already moved on to “Cut the Rope” by Zeptolabs.
Now Android users can rejoice as Zeptolabs had announced its commitment to release an Android version soon. No mention of its release but we hopefully it comes soon, atleast the BETA version.
