Hari ini hari Ahad?

spt biasa, keluar rumah pagi2 selepas menghantar anak-anak kemudian menghantar isteri ke pejabat, sy terberuk! aikk, nape x byk kete atas jalan hari ni? adakah kami masih lagi di hari Ahad? kemudian isteri saya memberi kata2 positif, “Ramai org cuti kot.Dah akhir2 tahun ni.” oh ye betul. di opis sy sendiri pon, spatut nyer hanya kami ber 3 shj yg tinggal; bos,en Zalee and myself.

Sepanjang perjalanan ke opis, selepas mendrop kan isteri di opis beliau saya berpk menyoal diri sendiri sambil menjawab setiap soalan dengan sendiri juga hehe :

Kenapa saya g opis?

sbb saye keje.

buat apa ke opis? byk keje (project) lagi yang belum selesai ke?

mmmm kebanyakkan nyer dah ujung2. touchin here and there.

BIH TU CUTI DUK UMAH JE LERR… internet pon ada d umah kan?

mm xpe la.. bdk2 kt opis pon xde .. at least ada org kt opis drpd kosong terus ..

nak buat apa kt opis ni?

mcm2.. planning ble… r&d ble … pk utk tahun depan plak …

kompeni sendiri ke ni??


bih tu??

eh .. dah amanah … buat lar .. LU FKIR LA SELILI!

eh, dah sampai opis lakk … so apakah kesimpulan yg cuba diblog kan ini? ntah lah … mungkin sbb dah terlalu biasa dgn hidup susah, bekerja dgn organisasi yg kecil, nk amek cuti pon berpk lapan puluh lapan kali. kalau bercuti pon sbb2 pergi bercuti bersama keluarga yang telah dirancang lebih awal. ataupon hal2 yang lebih penting berlaku; sakit, g hpital (maklumlah sejak2 jd pengunjung tetap hospital), kete rosak dsb..

merujuk kepada kata2 ayahanda semasa kami berdiskusi berkenaan dgn HR sesebuah organisasi, “Cuti adalah kelayakan setiap pekerja, tapi bukanlah hak setiap pekerja!”

p/s : blog ni, boss bace gak .. kene tulih lek lok .. kang sensitip, sape yg susah?

HDTV buying guide

Walking into an electronics store and being faced with a wall of large panel HDTVs can be daunting. Then you’re made to feel like an idiot when the sales person starts spewing statistics and acronyms that sound like a combination of Latin and calculus. Buying a flat screen HDTV is far easier than store sales staffs for electronics “experts” make it. You need only consider four questions, all of which can be answered before you step foot into a store.

LCD vs Plasma

There are two basic types of flat-panel TVs currently on the market: Plasmas and LCDs. Generally speaking, LCD HDTVs reflect ambient light better than plasma and, therefore, are more appropriate for bright rooms. However, plasmas generally perform far better in darker rooms, so if you can control the light in the room, you want a plasma.

LCDs are sometimes advertised with technology that can create extra frames between each “actual” frame of footage, sometimes called 120 Hz or, now, 240 Hz. This technology compensates for an inherent problem with LCD technology. Each pixel in an LCD is powered and lit separately, which takes time, measured in milliseconds (8 ms pixel response is too high; the average is around 4 ms.) Each time your picture moves, a new array of LCD pixels have to flicker on and off, which causes the picture to lag or “judder.” LCD HDTV manufacturers compensate by creating technologies, such as 120 Hz which doubles the TV’s frame rate, to compensate what this pixel lag. Without these compensating technologies, you get what’s called “motion blur,” faint image ghosts that follow fast-moving objects such as baseballs, jet planes or text scrolls across the screen. Plasmas work differently and don’t require any compensating technologies. In fact, pixel response isn’t even listed among a plasma TV’s specs.

The best way to decide if you need 120Hz technology or not is to see it in person on a film. Some people think the technology helps make the picture more smooth, while others claim the technology can detract from the “film look,” and be a distraction.

Finding the right size TV

After you nail down your choice of LCD vs Plasma, the next two factors when deciding what size TV to buy are budget (we’ll get to that in a second) and distance away from the TV. Generally speaking, viewers can sit as close as 1.5 times the screen diagonal size. For you non-math professors, take the distance you’re sitting away from the TV, divide it by 1.5 and you’ll have your ideal diagonal TV size. For example, if you’re sitting six feet (72-inches) away from your TV, the right size TV will be right around 48-inches.


You might already have a wealth of devices plugged into your current set, be it game consoles, VCRs and DVD players, or maybe you even plug in your camcorder or other video device through the traditional red, white and yellow connections known as RCA connections. All HDTVs will include composite inputs, which hook up older devices, but many HDTVs come with new connections like Component video and HDMI connections. HDMI, which stands for High Definition Multimedia Interface, conveys all the digital video and multi-channel (i.e. surround sound) audio from newer home theater components like a high-definition cable box, DVD player or game console using a single cable.

When buying an HDTV, ask yourself: how many HDMI devices will you be connecting? The aforementioned DVD player, high definition cable box or satellite TV receiver? A high-definition video game system? A high definition camcorder? A streaming media component such as an Apple TV or Netflix box?

If you’ve got the cash, avoid the “that’s really all I need now” syndrome. Even though technology is constantly shifting, you’ll be keeping this TV for a long time. If you hear yourself saying “that’s all I need now,” think about an HDTV with more HDMI inputs than the set you’re about to settle on.

Most HDTVs offer at least two HDMI inputs. Our advice: get one with at least three. Who knows what HDMI gadgets the future will bring that you’ll be drooling after?

Of course, the number of HDMI jacks is superfluous if you plan on connecting your HDTV to an A/V receiver. The receiver’s number of HDMI inputs now become the issue.


You’d think budget would be the first question you’d want to ask, but bear in mind you’re going to be looking at your HDTV likely for multiple hours a day for many many years. Analyize exactly what kind of buyer you are. Are you looking for the latest-and-greatest TV where price is no object? Do you like extras like internet connectivity and multiple inputs? Is a middle-of-the-road set ok, where you get an adequate balance of form and function? Or, are you strapped for cash and just need something to replace a dying TV? Be sure that if you’re a budget buyer now, that you’re not going to be adding components in the future, nor will you miss those extra features.

Spending a couple of extra dollars will not only get you a bigger set, but probably more HDMI jacks and/or better video processing. Digital HDTVs often have trouble with unstable images such as fog, fire or water, which can look digitized as the screen wrestles to render them accurately, as well as skin tones in close-ups. Extra processing makes all these difficult-to-render aspects smoother.

The best time of year to buy a new HDTV is January/February just before the SuperBowl, or September/October. These are times when stores try to sell off existing inventory just before new fall sets arrive for the holiday season, then again right after the holiday shopping season and the annual Consumer Electronics Show, when most manufacturers unveil new sets that will reach store walls in the spring. You may even find a bargain by buying a floor sample during these transition periods.

Marketing tricks

You will be bombarded by a lot of  HDTV specification data, which companies use to try to differentiate their product. While they my sound important, marketing terms are largely hogwash.

1080p vs 720p

These two numbers indicate the highest resolution a TV can deliver, expressed as lines of resolution – 1080p indicates 1,080 lines, 720 indicates (duh) 720 lines. You’ll often see an HDTV described as 1920 x 1080p, which indicates total pixels – each line of a TV is comprised of pixels. Multiple the two numbers and you find a 1080p HDTV has more than two million pixels, a 720p set a little less.

The “p” stands for “progressive scan,” which means a TV scans and displays the picture in the fastest and purest form possible.

Why should you ignore these numbers? Nearly all HDTVs from the major manufacturers offer so-called “full HD” 1080p on all sizes of their HDTVs, certainly all HDTVs 50 inches and larger. Some smaller and less expensive HDTVS (yes, even a 42-inch panel is now considered small) are available at 720p, which is fine and might save you a couple of hundred dollars since below 50 inches, we find it difficult to discern the difference between 1080p and 720p, especially from a distance.


You’ll hear that plasma TVs use more energy than LCD TVs. Technically correct, but misleading. An LCD TV drains at a constant rate regardless of what’s on the screen. Plasmas draw power depending on what’s being displayed – brighter scenes draw more power, darker scenes less power. Over time, plasmas may cost a bit more to operate, but we don’t find the difference worth fussing about.


Plasma HDTVs used to suffer from this problem in which the ghost of an image stayed behind on a screen, especially static images such as static logos or program guide grids. Used to be a problem – it’s not any more. Any sales person trying to steer you to an LCD HDTV by using “burn-in” as a wedge should be ignored.

Screen life

You’ll see HDTVs with life spans rated in hours – 60,000, 80,000, 100,000. This sounds as if your TV may die in a few years. However, do the math and you’ll see it’s a selling point for manufacturers that doesn’t really matter.

Let’s say the HDTV you’re considering has a rated life of 80,000 hours. If you watch your HDTV eight hours a day, 365 days a year, that’s just 2,920 hours and means your TV will bring you high definition happiness for more than 27 years – and that’s only to half brightness.  You can safely ignore the rated screen life number.

Extended Warranty

Save yourself a few hundred dollars. HDTVs don’t have any moving parts, so if anything will go wrong with your set it will happen sooner rather than later, i.e., well within the manufacturer’s warranty period. We find buying an extended warranty on an HDTV is a complete waste of money.


BlackBerry Bold vs. iPhone 3G

My phone, 9300i seems like ‘buat-hal’. well, since Hazeeq dropped it last week, dah x ble nk tutup da cover dier. bole tu bole, tp tak rapat. so, i m lookin forward for a new gadget (dah start ngade2 huhuh)

Take two very similar devices, put them up against each other, and you get BlackBerry Bold vs. iPhone 3G.

How do they match up?

The BlackBerry Bold is very well built, and should last as long as you would like it to, barring any kind of abuse on the light weight device.

The iPhone 3G is also built very well, the inside engineering is great, the glass is precision-laser-cut, and it should be able to stand a bit more abuse than that of the BlackBerry.

How do they look?

The BlackBerry Bold looks very clean and sharp. The face is black, the sides are chrome, and the back is black leather. The layout of the phone is simple and easy to understand.

The iPhone 3G is undoubtedly a world icon as far as mobile phones go these days. The 3G comes in only two colors; black or white. Although the 3G appears small, most of the commonly used features are accessible.

The BlackBerry Bold is larger in size than the 8800, and is the largest in size since the 8700. The Bold may be a little much in one hand for some people, but the keyboard accounts for much of the space, and most likely, two hands will be used for the keyboard.

The iPhone 3G is slimmer, and easier to hold in one hand than the Bold, but obviously doesn’t have the larger keyboard.

The screen of the BlackBerry Bold is excellent. Graphics, content, videos, it all looks great on the Bold thanks to the dense ppi ratio.

The screen of the iPhone 3G is not far behind that of the Bold. Make entire use of the 3.5″ screen while not using the virtual keyboard. Web browsing, email, and videos all look great on the screen of the 3G.

The keyboard of the Bold is excellent. The look, the layout, and the feel of the keyboard is all good.

The keyboard of the iPhone is virtual, which may be nice to some people, but not so nice to others. If you are looking for the real feel of the keyboard then the virtual may not do.

How well do they operate?

Many people love the operating system of the BlackBerry, it does what it’s supposed to do, and users seem to find all of the tricks in which to get all of the usability out of it.

The operating system of the iPhone is said to be the most technologically advanced, out of any other mobile operating system in the world.

As far as general usage goes regarding battery life, the Bold seems to last a littel bit longer than that of the iPhone. You can probably expect to get the same usage out of the Bold battery, as that of any other BlackBerry.

The call quality of each phone seems to be very good, the iPhone might get the slightest edge as sounding a bit more natural than the Bold.

What about email?

On the iPhone reading email may be second to none, however, everything else even related to email is better on the BlackBerry. Using the keyboard on the BlackBerry makes working with email fast and easy. You might say that email on the BlackBerry is almost perfect?

How are these phones for business use?

The BlackBerry can handle anything that you would normally do from Outlook on your Exchange server, and it is a perfect desktop extension. The BlackBerry is said to be the most secure device in the world for business use.

The iPhone needs more testing with its security, the device deployment tools need some work, which leaves the iPhone with more to prove in the business world.

What can I expect to pay?

The BlackBerry Bold is somewhere in the range of $199-$299 with a 2 year contract, and the iPhone is $199 at 8GB and $299 at 16GB, so the pricing seems to be fairly equal between the two.

Which phone is better overall?

Really neither phone is that much better than the other. The Bold is the best BlackBerry up until now, and it is great for business use. The iPhone is a consumer device, and most of the original problems have already been addressed. It all comes down to what you like and what you really want in a phone. Each phone is great in its own right, so the battle really comes down to you, the consumer.

What do you think; BlackBerry Bold, or iPhone 3G?


p/s : tp skrg da ada blackberry storm & iPhone 3Gs … nnti lah buat comparison yg lain plak huhuh

My few cents about futsal

  • A great team doesn’t have the best players but has the best teamwork
  • look for a player who improves the team, not one who wants the stardom
  • keep your first touches simple until we find our rhythm
  • matches are decided by moments where you play with great intensity
  • scoring in thes intense moments is the difference between success and failure
  • face the opponents, dont turn your backs on the balls
  • the most important player is the goalkeeper; has the opportunity to play outfield, and his quality of passing and reading of the game makes him the most decisive player in winning a match
  • a team has been together for a long time – have a certain maturity and knowledge of the game – try to focus on reaching the next level by improving the players’ decision making and visual awareness
