• Well, Well, Well, You Know This Day Will Cometh, Period.

    In today’s digital world, it has become commonplace for couples to depend on devices to communicate and stay connected to each other. However, according to the latest Kaspersky Lab study, there are not only pros of “connected love” but also cons that should be taken into account. For example, 55% of couples have argued about device overuse, highlighting how although devices often help to bring couples closer together, they can also push them apart and potentially put relationships at risk. Many people today depend on devices to stay connected with their friends and family, and the same is true for those in relationships. Indeed, couples today frequently use devices and…

  • Dandruff, Read This.

    Do you have dandruff? Several studies have shown a prevalence of dandruff of up to 50% in the general population[1]. While dandruff is not contagious or physically harmful, it can cause sufferers to present as messy or unhygienic; and cause embarrassment and a loss of self-confidence[2]. Dandruff can have several causes, with dry skin being the most common cause of flaking dandruff[3]. Other causes include, irregular or incorrect scalp and hair care, over-shampooing and sensitivity to hair care products. There are many anti-dandruff treatments. While the majority of anti-dandruff treatment are effective in reducing the formation of dandruff flakes, there is a concern that hair and scalp can be stripped off…

  • Sandbox, On The Cloud, Saving Big Bucks For Your Business

    I came across this update from Kaspersky Lab, which I think it is pretty exciting for companies which are posed with threats, especially when threats are getting more complicated and sophisticated. The brand launched Cloud Sandbox with the following highlights:- No additional hardware investments, so saving on CAPEX Subscription base, so when you do not need it anymore, just stop.  Imagine the amount of hardware you need to think what to do with them when you switch system Detonate suspicious files in a virtual environment, instead of at your own hardware and the risks, oh boy, too high Overall, you also get the best security expert minds at your side…

  • It’s good to be still alive

    Last Friday, I accidentally dropped a metal furniture on my right toe. The pain was severe, I sought medical help, treated with some pain killer.  I went home and then to work without able to control the pain, was really bad. Fast forward to 6 days later, I could feel slight pain, but I think the toe is slowly recovering.  I missed my routine exercise, but what the heck, I could still do exercise that does not require my toe to be involved. On the toe accident, I just want to reflect a moment in my life how I could possibly loose my life, just like how a metal furniture…

  • HomePod

    I love music. Retna and I share about the same taste in music.  Not that all the genre we could listen together, but we have some common artists we listen together on regular basis. I also have music I listen to with our kids. When AirPlay first arrived on the iOS, we opted for KLIPSCH KMC 3, which is a portable speaker, with super great sub woofer, which we played it outdoor a lot when washing the cars.  We then placed it inside the living room, for anyone to enjoy the great sound of music. Later through a trip to Taipei, we discovered Bangs and Olufsen, which was installed inside…

  • Weekend, Water

    So last weekend, 500,000 household and commercial units experienced long water disruption, from March 6 to March 11, and some until today, still no water. Instead of thinking about water disruption, we have gone to learn some free hand sketch at Islamic Arts Museum Malaysia, a workshop organised by the museum.  Then, since we could not cook at home, we had lunch at the restaurant, which to be honest, while the service sucks, the food is great. We visited the curated exhibition on “Syria, Yemen, Iraq: The Risk of Forever Being Lost”.  A great idea which the museum collaborated with International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC).  Just few things which…

  • Someone could be watching your child

    Kaspersky Lab researchers have discovered multiple security vulnerabilities in popular smart cameras that are frequently used as baby monitors, or for internal home and office security surveillance. According to the research, the uncovered flaws could allow attackers to obtain remote access to video and audio feeds from the cameras, remotely disable these devices, execute arbitrary malicious code on them and do many other things. Modern smart cameras contain an advanced number of functions, providing users with various opportunities: people can use them as advanced baby monitors or for surveillance systems which spot intruders while no one is home or in the office. But, are these cameras secure enough by design…

  • Hey Siri

    “Hey Siri, what’s the weather today?” Daily, I am pretty sure Siri has been asked on that million of times.  Also if Siri would have sex with the person, as well as where to find the latest joint for weed. It is really a learning stage for the artificial intelligent which was first introduced by Apple in 2011, during its famous World Wide Developer Conference (WWDC), which I used to tune in to watch the latest development.  I could watch the podcast or YouTube later, or best still, the summarised version on some of the technology blogs or news sites. Siri is a spin-off from a project originally developed by…
