• Leaf-ing

    Participated in special preview of Nissan LEAF for Electric Vehicles Club Malaysia two weeks back. I attended due to my curiosity of the electric car, wanted to know the practicality as well as feasibility. I enjoyed the session hosted by Edaran Tan Chong Motors team as well as meeting people who are the experts of electric cars. I have chatted with many in the group, it is good to meet the people in person. Also, I know very little about electric cars.  So, this post here, are my opinions about LEAF. 1) I do not like Nissan, neither Tan Chong, though I am also a Tan myself, I would not tell you…

  • French Cars, Hate and Love Relationship

    I love our French cars, so much that I have written about them many times. I even asked and then shared with many Citroen lovers out there on a forum posting, which I believe was the highest in terms of page view. We got our first Citroen or French car in 2009, before our dear Inez came to this world. We learn from our previous parenthood experience that we needed some space in the car, when we have a baby. The need to pack day use cloths, stroller, easy snacks etc when you have a baby. More so, we had a helper with us that time. So a car with…

    Malicious and suspicious files shared by users of Kaspersky Lab products in Europe will start to be processed in data centers in Zurich, initiating the first part of a relocation commitment made by the company in late 2017 under its Global Transparency Initiative. The move reflects Kaspersky Lab’s determination to assure the integrity and trustworthiness of its products and is accompanied by the opening of the company’s first Transparency Center, also in Zurich. The relocation of data processing is part of a major infrastructure move designed to increase the resilience of the company’s IT infrastructure to risks of data breaches and supply-chain attacks, and to further prove the trustworthiness of…

  • 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…
