• Fake Facebook sites

    In the first quarter of 2018, Kaspersky Lab’s anti-phishing technologies prevented more than 3.6 million attempts to visit fraudulent social network pages, of which 60% were fake Facebook pages. The results, according to Kaspersky Lab’s report, ‘Spam and phishing in Q1 2018’, demonstrate that cybercriminals are still doing what they can to get their hands on personal data. Social network phishing is a form of cybercrime that involves the theft of personal data from a victim’s social network account. The fraudster creates a copy of a social networking website (such as a fake Facebook page), and tries to lure unsuspecting victims to it, forcing them to give up their personal…

  • Welcome to Puchong, 2.0

    I started Welcome To Puchong Facebook page a few years ago, when I was doing it with a few others.  It did not last.  Mainly, I was generating and developing the content, as well as promoting the page, alone. Just kind of like another tech enthusiast group I started with others, after a while, it was me running it alone, with the help of Retna, as well as our twins. As you are probably figuring things out now, I prefer a family run kind of startup.  Maybe it is about commitment from others, which I think could have taken a toll on some. So I went quiet for a while,…

  • Against the Wind, 1,298.73km

    Bought the Garmin EDGE 800 to track my riding behaviour, heart rate on my health level as well as to know how much calories I consumed when I have gone on riding on a bicycle. I was using CatEye to track my speed, however, it has limitation.  Was then considering SIGMA, however, the set I wanted to buy, Adrian bought it first.  So, I went hunting again.  Finally bought the Garmin EDGE 800 from Tukang Basikal Fook Sang, Sungai Besi. I am not a fanatic cyclists unlike many of my other cycling friends.  I started cycling when aboutcom was awarded a PR project with Malakoff, which few of the activities…

  • When Social Media Becomes Non-Responsive, Also by Operating Hours

    I remember DiGi was one of the telco that was (remember that I am using past tense) actively involved in social media – Twitter and Facebook in communicating with its customers.  I have had good communication with DiGi team in the past (again) but not until recently. The MiFi that aboutcom subscribed for the team when away from office, especially for many media events outside of Klang Valley has received terrible response from the team.  The service has been terminated. I was glad that DiGi opened an outlet at Sunway Pyramid as it is closer to us.  However, the waiting period to be served is horrible.  On par with TM…

  • Keeping Up with Technology (So Long Beamfest, Welcome Mobilefest)

    Beamfest, originated by someone from MyPDACafe since its inception, (I think) about 6 or 7 years ago.  However, over time, the site is not active anymore, with dropping of visitation to the forum and site, MyPDACafe is probably still popular in Penang, but not in Klang Valley anymore. However, it used to be a platform for all to communicate, get to know new products, technology as well as networking among the members.  Today, despite sharing the knowledge, also the venue for catching up with old friends. Although the Beamfest has loose its attractiveness, among few of us stil try to make it a point to meet perhaps once every month…

  • Social Networking Camera, Ready to Try?

    Kodak is one brand of our family choice when coming to buying of camera film.  Our family members also insisted on the Kodak paper print after picture being taken. With all things on digital, the new Kodak M530 is designed to make sharing pictures and videos to social networking sites such as Facebook, popular online digital picture and video sharing sites like YouTube and Flickr as well as KODAK Gallery, or to an e-mail address, to be as simple as pressing one button on the Kodak M530 camera.

  • Be an encourager, says Pastor Guy Rozario

    Have not been listening to Pastor Guy Rozario, the head of worship and musical department of Full Gospel Assembly KL.  He did not preach anything related to music nor his experience in music 🙂 but on being an encourager and motivator to others. What caught the attention of the congregation was the simple message taken from Acts 15:36-41 where the disagreement between Paul and Barnabas, and Jesus heals the man with leprosy in Mark 1:40-45. “Quite often I feel not encouraged and motivated in FGA.  So we need to change,” Pastor Guy said. Peter Drucker said, “To keep bureaucracy from productive people,” and Pastor Guy used that to describe current…

  • Total Surrender (after reading Reinhard Bonke’s walking on water)

    Reading Reihard Bonke’s posting on Facebook few minutes ago:- When Peter walked on the water it was Peter, not Jesus that figured prominently in this miracle. Peter walked to Jesus – not Jesus to Peter. But with it Peter showed what Jesus can do! If we do no more than what we can, it doesn’t demonstrate Jesus. But doing what He enables us to do, excel, rise above the limits of ourselves, guides people’s eyes to Jesus. Can you see the point? Please let me know. REINHARD BONNKE When Peter walked on water with Jesus, it was the time when he totally surrendered himself to Jesus, believing that he could…
