Having a blog has its fun times, long time ago i wrote a posting to support a close friend of mine Logan who was chosen to take part in Cleo’s Most Eligible Bachelor. Naturally since he was a good friend, i decided to support him. Honestly i didnt matter if he won and im very sure he didnt get into it to win it but for the experience.
So, what is Danny Yee Tuck Seng have got to do with that posting? Well, Mr Danny here has been leaving comments on the postings which read : Continue reading »
For the first time in about 10 years, Microsoft’s Internet Explorer browser market share fell below 70 per cent, ending 2008 with 68 per cent compare to almost 80 per cent 2-years ago.
At the same time, Firefox’s market share rapidly rose from 13.7 per cent to 21.3 per cent while Apple’s Safari browser jumped to almost 8 per cent from 4.7 per cent, according to data collected by Net Applications.
Although Internet Explorer 7 is the current version of Microsoft’s net browser – and IE8 is expected to come out this year – IE6 is still the dominant browser in business environments.
Personally this is no suprise to me. Firefox is becoming a huge favourite and i forsee more market share being shaved off the dominant IE. Hopefully its more of a evenplaying field sooner rather than later which should see more innovative ideas being put in to get consumers going!
Bailouts is the word that you got to get your self used too this year. Many companies are going to the dogs and many countries around the world are helping their “national” companies which provide jobs to millions of their people some hope of survival.
This money is tax payers money which is managed by the government who later give it out to these companies who than manage it in ensuring the company makes it through the hard times. So Chrysler which was rumored to be bust without the bailout got some help from the American government, how much…Just under 3billion US dollars.
What would they do with this money?
In return for the bailout GM and Chrysler have promised major reorganisations to cut spending. They include limits on their bosses’ pay and forcing the unions to accept steep wage cuts which they are not keen to do.
Instead, these morons ran full page advertisements across the nation’s papers thanking America for the bailout! Imagine that! The minute someone gives you money to save your company,you go out and blow some more money! They could have ran this ad online and thank the world ,leave alone America for almost no cost?
I guess this is a sneak preview to Americans on how their tax money is going to be spent!
I hope this does not happen in Malaysia, because if it does i don’t think we should let the companies get away with day light robbery! (not like it doesn’t happen )
Happy New Year once again to everyone. When a new year comes along, there are always new things that we have to get used too or embrace. From 2009 onwards, if you have passengers in your back seat, they need to buckle up! If thy don’t, you will definitely get yourself a nice little ticket which will further shave your bank balance in already weak times. So buckle up!!
I was doing some cleaning at home and decided to do a random check of expiry dates of my groceries at home and guess what!! Almost everything i had in my fridge and cupboards expired on the 31st of December 2008!! I had to clear them up to the dumps to avoid any un-pleasant incidents from taking place! Have you checked yours yet???
Another important tip is when you go shopping, make sure you check the expiry dates. Just like how i discovered the expiry dates, some shops may overlook it and it could only spell trouble!!
Well…2008 has expired on us soo its pointless to have it around anymore…Look for 2009 on your expiration tags and your assured off a time in the toilet!
Happy New Year!
