Instagram has introduced a new feature called “Photos of You” where you can now tag your friends on photos that you’ve posted on instagram. This lets you easily track down the beautiful (or nasty) photos that have been taken of you. You’ll now notice a new tab called “Photos of you” in your profile section.
At the moment, people can’t see the your tagged photos just yet. Instagram is giving time for existing users to get used with this new feature and it will only be visible to others after 16th of May.
Head after the break for the intro video.
Yes has introduced a new time limited promo ValuePacks where it offers double the quota that’s split based on off-peak and on-peak usage. This follows the exact same time slot as Maxis Broadband with peak data running from 8AM until 2AM and off-peak data from 2AM until 8AM. The special promo ValuePacks are offered from now until 2nd August 2013. The existing 1Malaysia Valuepack, ValuePack 68 & 150 are still being offered as well.
Apart from introducing these new ValuePacks, Yes has also made a drastic change on its unused data quota, calls and SMS. Previously, the Yes ValuePack allows you to carry forward unused usage to the following month as long as you top up before the expiry period which makes it rather appealing.
After 1st August, any accumulated data, calls and SMS will be automatically forfeited after 30 days even after topping up with a new ValuePack. For existing customers, you have 90 days grace period to utilise your accumulated data. Now the valuepacks are merely data quota boosters that last for 30 days. You can get the full valuepack details here.
For those who don’t really use much, Yes has also revised its Prepaid Plan. In the previous Yes plan, you would need to commit a minimum of RM30/month spending to keep your account valid. Now with the new “Yes Prepaid Plan”, there’s no longer a RM30 minimum monthly spend. This means you truly pay for what you use without spending a minimum RM30 each month.
To sweeten the deal, they are giving quarterly Bonus where they give additional data based on your quarterly top up. The quarter bonus are as follows:
RM75-RM150 (1GB – 500MB off peak / 500MB on peak)
RM151-RM450 (3GB – 1.5GB off peak / 1.5GB on peak)
RM451 and above (6GB – 3GB off peak / 3GB on peak)
Fortunately the free data does not expire and it is given out in January, April, July and October. More details of the new “Yes Prepaid Plan” over here.
Overall, the new revision is good for very casual users who would want to keep Yes as a backup internet service since there’s no RM30/month minimum spend. However for long term valuepack users, the new 30 day expiry is quite a turn off. For those who can’t finish their monthly valuepack top up should consider disabling auto renewal and activate valuepack only when it is needed.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 was just launched in Malaysia last weekend with the Octa-Core version at RM2,199. To recap, the Octa-Core version (i9500) comes with 8 cores which runs in either 1.6GHz quad-core or a 1.2GHz quad-core sets for maximum efficiency. If you’re looking for 4G LTE support, there’s the 1.9GHz Quad-Core version (i9505) which supports our local LTE bands and that model will be coming a bit later.
In terms of packaging, the box looks rather unique and it is better than the Galaxy S III with its wooden grain design. The box is rather eco-friendly with the usage of 100% recycled paper and soy-based ink for printing. Inside the box, you’ll get your typical manuals, white colour USB cable, headphones with buds and power adapter. Since this is a black mist colour unit, we would prefer if they provided the accompanying cables and plugs in black instead.
In the hands, the Galaxy S4 feels just like its predecessor. Build of the device doesn’t wow us but it feels good in the hands with its thinner dimensions. The back panel is very reflective on the Black Mist as if it is a mirror with dotted spots all over. As comparison, the Frost White version has a solid glossy white look.
Watch the unboxing of the Galaxy S4 after the break.

With the Galaxy S4 now out from the woods, all eyes are focused at their next Galaxy Note sequel. The upcoming Galaxy Note III is said to be powered with an Octa-Core Exynos 5 processor and comes with a Mali-450 GPU with 8-cores. Memory is rumoured to be a humongous 3GB as well.
Continuing with their tradition of display upsizing, the Galaxy Note III is said to be having a large 5.99″ Full HD Super AMOLED display, a 13MP camera and comes with its signature S-Pen as well. Despite its huge display size, the Galaxy Note III is also rumoured to be of the similar size with the Galaxy Mega 5.8 thanks to its thinner bezel design.
Like the Galaxy Note II, the Note III is expected to be announced in Berlin’s IFA 2013 which is happening in September. While we can hope for a brand new design, we don’t expect the design language to be any different from its current range of Galaxy models.
