  • How much you worth?

    While many of us have heard of, or even fallen victim to, cybercrimes such as data and identity theft, it seems that relatively few know the value of the information stolen from us. A new study from Kaspersky Labhas revealed that while our identity may not be worth a lot in terms of dollars, it is a significant asset to criminals in other ways. The research uncovered an appetite among cybercriminals for data stolen from popular services – including via social media accounts and remote access to gaming websites. User confusion about what their data is worth could result in a haphazard approach to security, making it all too easy for…

  • Adhere 13th Blues Bar

  • When everyone can fly, everyone can treat you like shit

    Cabin view of the recent flight I boarded, an AirAsia flight. If given a choice, generally the clients would advise us to NOT board an AirAsia flight.  Reasons being, delayed and safety. The delay, I understood.  There were a few times some of the media, our colleagues and even clients boarded the AirAsia flights were late for the events, due to the flight delayed.  To be fair, the delay sometimes were due to weather, and ground control.  I am pretty sure AirAsia team would have done all they can to ensure punctuality.   So in terms of safety, this is subjective.  But after my recent flight with AirAsia to Penang,…
