YouTube takes a look back at 2011 and lists down the most viewed videos for this year.
2011 is also a landmark year for YouTube as it surpassed the one trillion video playbacks mark. That’s more than twice as many stars as in the Milky Way, so among the millions of hours of videos which one is the most viewed in 2011?
You’ll be surprised with the result.
When it first made an appearance, that glowing Apple logo on the cast aluminium PowerBooks was one seriously cool piece of embellishment ever seen on a computer. A few years on, the PowerBook is no more but that glowing Apple logo lives on in MacBooks. While competitors have attempted in various iterations to emulate that cool white glow, nothing exudes sophistication like that stylised half bitten apple from Cupertino.
For the longest time, iPhone users wanted that cool white glow on the back of their favourite smartphone. Oddly enough Apple has yet to oblige with a very obvious addition to the iPhone. So for these customers there are two options, hope for the feature to be added on to the next iPhone…or…get this convenient mod kit and DIY the glowing logo yourself.
Originating from China – where else – the DIY mod kit replaces your standard iPhone 4S back plate with one that has a glowing Apple logo retrofitted onto it. The kit, only available for iPhone 4 and 4S looks simple enough to do but you need to have the right tools (because doesn’t come with any tools) and gather enough geek-courage to take apart the iPhone yourself.
If you want one, the kit costs 270 Yuan which is about RM136 at today’s exchange rate, excluding shipping and handling. Of course by modifying your iPhone you can say goodbye to your Apple warranty but on the flip side you get that oh-so-cool glowing logo that you can show off to your friends with. For some, getting a warranty void is a small price to pay in order to achieve that cool status.
Head to this online store to get your very own glowing apple but you got to be quick as it looks like stocks are very limited.

They created a sensation with the amazing unboxing of the Nexus One, then they took it a step further by taking over the whole YouTube page during the unboxing of the Nexus S and now, the Nexus Ninjas are back with another edition of Nexus unboxing.

The first three levels are playable online while the rest comes in a form of an Android app called Clash of The Nexus Ninjas available for download here.
There are more Nexus Ninjas videos and a couple of the screen caps for you after the jump. Have fun.

The Motorola Atrix 2 is finally here with the price tag of RM1,599 from IMCC. Despite having a “2” behind the Atrix name, it isn’t really a full fledged replacement.
First up, the screen is bumped from 4.0″ to 4.3″ which is an improvement with non-Pentile display. The screen resolution is still maintained at qHD which pushes a rather high 960×540 pixels. In terms of processor, instead of the 1GHz dual-core Tegra 2 on the original Atrix, the Atrix 2 uses a 1GHz dual-core TI OMAP 4430. This puts it a notch lower than the RM1,999 Motorola RAZR that runs on 1.2GHz dual-core.
At the back, the camera is given an upgrade from 5MP to 8MP which now shoots 1080p HD videos. Unfortunately the battery capacity is reduced from 1,930mAh down to 1,785mAh. The Atrix 2 supports HSPA+ with download speeds up to 21Mbps which is similar to the Samsung Galaxy S II. It is also worth pointing out that the Atrix 2 doesn’t come with a bio-metric fingerprint scanner which was available on the original Atrix.
If you’re interested, head over to IMCC’s Motorola Atrix 2 page.
At the same time, the original dual-core Motorola Atrix which was launched at RM1,999 is now going for as low as RM1,299 at IMCC Online Store. If you’re interested, you better act fast as offer is while stocks last.
Head after break for promo videos of the Motorola Atrix 2.
