The creators of Whatsapp are going to be charging $1 per year to all Whatsapp users starting this year, sometime this year. While no date has been set, its in their plans to charge this nominal amount to for usage of this cross-platform messaging service.
Not a big deal if you ask me, it’s a small fee to pay for the service which is probably saving you lots of money that you might have spent on those SMS/MMS.

Have you gone out and purchased a replacement extra Astro remote control from your local hardware or supermarket? They normally cost about $15-20 and are normally absolutely rubbish! So i asked my astro installer who wanted RM100 for the remote which was just too expensive!
I decided to get to a Astro outlet to find out for myself. To my surprise, a brand spanking new, ORIGINAL Astro Byond remote control cost only RM30! And you dont even need to pay for it upfront , it’s charged to your first bill.
The original remote is much much better than the rubbish fake ones which is not exactly cheap.
Here are the list of Astro outlets that you can check out to get fix your broken remote or get an extra one
The brand spanking new Windows 8 is around the corner in most places. In some countries it’s already available. If you are like me and your company was running on the very heavy and very slow Windows Vista or XP till recently Windows 7 was introduced and feels like it’s a new machine all together, the world is moving fast!
While it might be a long shot till your company gets you on Windows 8, it’s perhaps a good time to upgrade your home pc if you might be in the market for one. If you are still sceptical, it’s a good idea to test drive Win 8 on your existing PC.
Install Win8 developer preview on a virtual box which will give you an opportunity to test the new operating system out without wiping out your existing OS
Oracle VM VirtualBox
Windows 8 Developer Preview ISO file (32-bit or 64-bit)
Windows Live ID (for best testing experience, sign up here if you don’t have one)
Internet Connection (for best testing experience)
For detail instruction on how to get this done, check THIS out.
I have tested it out for a few days now and i must say that it’s a different experience from what we are used too but a change that I could get used too very easily. Windows just got pimped!

Why?
When the MicroSim was launched, users simply cut their existing Sim’s to work. The new Nano Sim is slightly thinned as well measuring 0.67mm compared to 0.76mm.
