Getting a new prepaid SIM is fairly easy in Malaysia. With only an IC or a passport, you can sign up for a new starter pack and start using it straight away within a few minutes. Because of this easy process, there are many cases with regards to misuse of prepaid SIM cards. To curb such abuse, MCMC will be implementing a new guideline on registration of prepaid public cellular services which will be enforced next year.
This was brought up during CFM’s (Communications and Multimedia Consumer Forum of Malaysia) Annual General Meeting today and they have pledged support for this new initiative. According to former CFM Chairman, Megat Ishak, this new guideline will protect consumer’s data from being misused for criminal purposes.
Of all the things that Google launched today, Google Clips is probably the thing I’m most on the fence about. It’s supposed to be this GoPro-smartphone-like camera that takes the photographer out of photography.
How? Well, it’s Google so it’s obviously going to be with machine learning.
But Google has a solution. They’re a pair of wireless earbuds called the Pixel Buds and although these buds look like your normal Jaybird or Jabra buds, these puppies have one kickass feature that may just give us a glimpse into the future: Real-time translation right in your ear.
With Malaysian families getting more connected than ever, Maxis has introduced an interesting new product that provides unlimited data for the entire household. With MaxisONE Prime, you can get a fixed fibre broadband plus mobile postpaid line which gives you unlimited calls, SMS and data which can be extended to 4 family members.
The Google Pixel 2 has wrestled back its title of the highest rated smartphone camera by DxOMark Mobile. Their first generation Pixel had blown away the competition last year with a score of 89. It was the highest rated smartphone until the HTC U11, iPhone 8/8Plus and Galaxy Note8 came along.
As of yesterday, the iPhone 8 Plus and Galaxy Note8 were the top rated smartphone cameras with a score of 94. Now both of these dual-camera flagships are overtaken by the Pixel 2’s new high-score of 98.
Chromebooks have never really had a no holds barred, balls to the wall flagship device, at least not one like Google‘s brand new Pixelbook. Coming in at a price you’d normally expect to see great Windows ultrabooks, does the Pixelbook have the specs to back up its retail tag?
Google thinks so.
Google Home was one of the more interesting home assistants when it launched. It had this chic look that was minimalist and it came with all the might of Google and the Assistant baked in. But while the Home is a good start, Google can’t stop there if they really want to take over your homes.
Well, today, the search engine giant announced two new home devices. The Google Home Max, which is really big, and the Google Home Mini, which is, uh, really tiny.
To say that Google‘s first Pixel smartphone was well-received when it first launched is perhaps a big understatement. The tech world loved Google’s new handsets and now, everyone is looking forward to seeing what the search engine giant has in store for their second round of Pixel smartphones.
At long last, the time has come. These are Google’s brand new Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL smartphones.
