Working around the clock to make up for their mistake, Microsoft has already put up the web page that allows users globally (Malaysia included) who currently use a Microsoft Surface Pro, Pro 2 and Pro 3 (sold before 15th of July 2015) to replace their faulty AC power cords. This follows concerns that units have been reported to cause fire hazards.
Users using the Surface Pro 4 will be not be involved as their cords are fine to begin with.

U Mobile has just refreshed its Power Prepaid, giving you even more free internet each month. When it was first introduced, it offered the most free high-speed internet at 1GB as long as you top up a minimum of RM10 each month.
With the growing demand for internet on the go, Power Prepaid now comes with a whopping 3GB of Free Data. You should be impressed by now but wait until you see the full picture.
Kickstarter projects are growing by the day. Some of the things you can find there are nothing short of amazing, from camera control modules, to remote-controlled paper planes, to movies and even smartwatches. With such a large following though it seems weird that Kickstarter never brought their application to the Google Play Store — until now.
If you’ve ever lost your phone before and immediately tried to locate it using some GPS-tracker app like “find my iPhone”, you’d probably know that a wild goose chase ensues. The chase begins and you’ll have to act fast if you want to catch the culprit that has stolen your smartphone.
Now, what if you’re on the receiving end of these searches multiple times. Does it make you a thief? Or is your house just bringing bad GPS-related luck? We dig deeper into this mysterious case that has a couple in Atlanta constantly having find my phone-like apps bring people to their house.
It’s been a trying couple of weeks as the brains behind the tech journalism world attempted to figure out what exactly were the specifications for the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S7. Some said there could be as many as four models launched at the same time while others dismissed that right out of the bat. There was never any official confirmation beyond an entry in the Indonesian certification agency (which has been removed) and an exclusive by SamMobile.
Now, though, thanks to Indian import-export tracker Zauba, we at least have confirmation of the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge’s screen sizes.
If you’re a fan of witty, ridiculous and outrageous humour, you will no doubt have heard of The Oatmeal. The brilliant work of author/comic-writer/kid-trapped-in-an-adult’s-body Matthew Inman has been passed around the Internet more often than a keg at a frat house party, and for good reason. His comics are brilliant. He takes daily life situations, adds some magic, some ridiculousness, a bear-o-dactyl and boom, you’ll be on the floor clutching your sides laughing your head off, or trying not to puke from the graphic images. Either way, it’s a lot of fun.
While most of his work was designed to have people cackling like witches on a broomstick, he does have some pretty hard hitting and emotional ones as well. One of his newer works about Gene Roddenberry, for example, was as motivational as it was bulu-roma inducing.
Not too long ago, The Oatmeal collaborated with Elan Lee and Shane Small to launch a Kickstarter campaign for their own imaginative card game: Exploding Kittens. It became one of the most funded projects on Kickstarter and quickly won the hearts of many but it suffered from the limitation of being a physical card game. Now, well…there’s an app for that.
Getting from point A to point B is now more affordable than before. With GrabCar’s latest promo, a single trip could cost as little as a cup of “Teh Tarik” at the mamak stall.
The Taiwanese electronics company has let the ZenFone 2 storm run long enough. After releasing five different versions in Malaysia and spinning-off too many devices under the ZenFone name to count. Their flagship smartphone has been on the market for a year already and these benchmarks imply that we’re going to see a new generation of ZenFones pretty soon.
As we swing into the new year, Yes is doubling up its wireless broadband offering for less. At only RM88/month, you’ll get 11GB of data which can be shared with its free bundled Huddle XS MiFi.
