• Mac User Group Meet Jan 2011, hosted by Kaspersky Lab

    Thanks to Kaspersky Lab for agreeing to host the Malaysia Mac User Group Meet for Jan 2011 on Saturday, Jan 15, 2011.  We have Rain, jeyadev, IanCheong, marathon, kuanyoon, bennylee, Mok, Jesmond, samueltan, Ariel, Elijah joining the first meet of the year. Rain started the iPad gaming demo (I missed out the photograph that time, alamak).  Pretty impressive especially the game that looks like Prince of Persia (sorry, I forgot the name, not a gaming person) on a big screen.  Just so exciting to watch.  During Rain’s demonstration, iancheong said, “We don’t need Nintendo Wii!”  I have to agree.  Anyone looking for Nintendo Wii?  🙂

  • MyMUG MacFest Report by Azul

    Samuel kicked off the night with a presentation called “Mac + Me”. He talked about how he started using the Mac for the first time, encountering some teething issues along the way. Negative myths were busted as he found the truth after using his Mac. Samuel listed out his favourite apps, his favourite browser being Chrome. Among the things he likes about the Mac is Mail, ringtones and projector connection and one of the things he dislikes is not being able to send html email.

  • Mac + Me, 1st Sharing in MacFest

    When Azul, one of the founding members of Malaysia Mac User Group, or better known as MyMUG, first contacted me about being one of the speaker for upcoming MyMUG MacFest, meeting for Mac users once every two months, I was surprised and honored, simply I am still a rather ‘green’ Mac user.  However, I accepted the suggestion and take it as an experience of a life time. I suggested to Azul maybe I could do a sharing on how I use Mac at work.  Thus that was how ‘Mac+Me’ came about. Sharing session comprises of how Mac could be used in an environment where most counterparts are Windows users. “Windows…

  • Last MyMUG’s MacFest of 2009

    Elijah told me in advance that he wanted to stay at home to accompany Retna and Inez.  I believe it was mainly driven by he would then be able to watch Merlin on Hallmark all for himself without interference from Ariel (evil father’s thought). Ariel went with me to Machines at One Utama (Old Wing) to attend the MyMUG’s MacFest, which signifies the last gathering for the Malaysian Mac User Group for 2009.  By the way, MyMUG holds such gathering once every two months.  The attendees are mainly the hardcore, amateur, new user as well as anyone who is keen to find out or to explore Mac before becoming a…

  • Eggy USB Speakers

    First saw and heard the NexxOne’s Cyclonüs StereoPod Portable Speakers at MyMug’s June 27 MacFest.  Azul of MyMug demonstrated the features of Cyclonüs StereoPod with his MacBook Pro – first without turning on the power, and then with the power on.  The sound just impressed me, from that time on. The Cyclonüs StereoPod Portable Speakers packed in an egg shape, and a little pouch for each carrying.  I can see the practical usage in presentation for work, church and also while traveling – no longer just relying on the MacBook speakers that ended up breaking the sound. The standard retail price is RM169, a group of us got it at…
