    Question: Touch Screen Fetish

    With all the iPhone craze and touch screen craze right now, I also feel like I need a touch screen phone :) But I really don’t want to prize tag to go along with it. I have a touch screen fetish, lols. Where can I get one emmagem?

    Love,

    Touchy Feel-y Girl

    Hullo Touchy Feel-y girl:)

    I understand what you feel about the touch screen craze. Everyone is doing it. Once I was at Low Yat Plaza buying a video camera, I made a comment about how everything is touch screen now, even video cameras. The fella at the shop said, “Touch screen is going to be big!”. I guess he was right. Every screen nowadays are touch screen. From phones to shopping mall directories. They are all going tactile.

    Touching is the new pink (ok, that sounded wrong). So where can you get a touch screen phone? I have the answer: The new LG KP 500.

    LG has jumped on the bandwagon and now too has a touch screen phone. This LG KP 500 is a newbie in town and boy does it look awesome.

    If I were to own a touch screen phone, it has to be cute okay!

    Don’t worry,

    Internet Security For Home Users

  • The Many Dangers of Facebook

    The Many Dangers of Facebook

    Author: Justin Wong

    Lets ‘face’ it. Facebook has been taking over Malaysian internet users away from Friendster, slowly but surely. We cannot deny its popularity, and its functionality. But what many of us don’t know is how much our personal information is being passed around like a peace pipe in tribal ceremony.

    Since the advent of Facebook Apps, countless coders have rushed in to create applications for Facebook users, ranging from the ridiculously redundant, to the universally usable. Stop and think why these people take the time to create those applications in the first place? Facebook is not paying them. Here’s the reason:

    The creators of the applications will gain access to the information of their users, and their user’s friends. See full story here.

    Do you actually read the terms that you are forced to agree with in order to add pretty much any application? Perhaps you should. I know a few who adds applications to their profiles like there is no tomorrow. That would mean that they are, in a way, exposed to many hungry info-mongers out there. I personally add only those that I truly enjoy, and find handy.

    So what is the potential harm? What is the worst that could possibly happen? That remains to be seen. Facebook has a team of people doing everything they can to stop fraud, fake accounts, spam, and other pesky things. Not only that, you have a myriad of privacy options available for you to tweak as much you like. I recommend you pay a visit to that page soon, the link is at the top right corner.

    Not only should you be weary of your privacy, you should be careful of your own actions! If you joined to many groups or have too many friends, the Facebook police will arrest you and lock you up for good. To see what other things that could get your account disabled, go here.

    Speaking of dangers in Facebook, lets not forget how excessive usage could cost you your productivity. Whether you’re a student or in an office, resist the temptation of ‘facebooking’ too many times in a single day! Here’s a suggestion to help you reduce usage: if you have it bookmarked, remove it.

    I shall conclude by saying: don’t take your freedoms for granted. There is a price for everything. The people who created and developed Facebook are not necessarily evil, but its users can be. Go on, remove the applications you can do without. Heck, go outside and smell the fresh air.

    Komen Laptop Bags from Mobile Edge

    hey,i wonder where else to get a stylish,practical and affordable/cheap laptop bag aside from gin&Jacqie

    Avid

    Hey!

    We’re afraid laptop bags are not cheap, if not then it would not serve its purpose as a laptop bag, would it? Laptop bags need to be sturdy and it has to protect the laptop most importantly. Most that we’ve seen are at least above RM100. So far, really, the cheapest we’ve seen is still Gin&Jacqie. Unless someone else (READ: Readers of emmagem!) has seen any other cheaper version!

    Get a bag with bold colours instead, if you cannot find a stylish bag. . .

    Here are some suggestions. . .

    Shhhhh…..

    We found a great Singapore-based website, Fabrix Cases that customizes awesome macbook sleeves, ipod cases and camera cases(for Sony Cybershot T Series)! We can now be all unique (I’ve seen too many laptop sleeves from Gin&Jacqie in my uni!)

    Although they make them ready made for only ipod stuff, but you can always customize it to the size of your laptop/notebook and your phones or even cameras!:)
