Burnt S4, user claims for replacement, samsung demands proof, he uploaded to youtube and it goes BOOM - viral
Burnt S4, user claims for replacement, samsung demands proof, he uploaded to youtube and it goes BOOM – viral. Samsung did not handle it well. Samsung settlement proposal to him was just another disaster, do you think we live in NORTH KOREA OR CHINA (or maybe Singapore) that you can easily shut someone up through threats ? Your money DO NOT OWN FREEDOM – for god’s sake!
Sheesh -_- !
Damage control is a tricky thing: One wrong move can make a small crisis exponentially worse. Such is the case for Samsung, which moved to suppress YouTube evidence that its Galaxy S4 smartphone can catch fire for no reason at all, only to have the original poster call the company out for it in a second video that received five times as many views as the first.
Samsung had itself to blame for the initial clip as well. In it, YouTuber ghostlyrich remarks that the company had demanded proof that his new phone was indeed defective before they would agree to replace it—they just didn’t expect him to share that evidence with the world. We get a few closeups of the charred and melted charging port, along with an alarming hypothetical: The battery could have exploded, resulting in a much worse fire.
Ghostlyrich soon received a settlement proposal from Samsung that promised he could exchange his fried phone for “a similar model,” but on several conditions. He would have to delete his YouTube video, promise not to upload similar material, officially absolve the company of all liability, waive his right to bring a lawsuit or other legal complaint, and never make the terms of this agreement public. A witness would also have to sign the form.
Sounds airtight, doesn’t it? But Samsung didn’t anticipate that ghostlyrich would twist the knife by conveying to his subscribers what steps the manufacturer was taking to brush a serious safety concern under the rug. Now almost half a million people have seen that Samsung won’t provide the services outlined in their warranty until you sign some more rights away.
That should be a valuable lesson to businesses everywhere: You may be able to get away with selling a product that burns a few apartments down, but trying to censor whomever publicly complains about it will provide a crash course in the Streisand effect.
Oh, well—when does the S5 come out?

How Does Apple Feel About Bitcoin - They probably hate what they cant control
Apple hates what they do not control. They also want their own payments platform to become the dominant digital payment platform. They would probably sue Bitcoin if it were a person or business
Over the past couple of months, there have been a few Bitcoin app rejections by Apple that have made some waves. First, the venture-backed startup Coinbase had its app removed entirely from the App Store. Today, a blog post from peer-to-peer messaging and payments app Gliph highlights its own rejection and the subsequent removal of its ability to transact in Bitcoin.
Gliph’s Rob Banagale talks about a few aspects of the rejection, including the technical details of how Gliph handles Bitcoin, Apple’s motivations for rejecting the app and the possibility that it could change its mind.
The rejection, Banagale notes, was based largely off of section 22.1 of Apple’s App Store review guidelines. The rule states that “apps must comply with all legal requirements in any location where they are made available to users. It is the developer’s obligation to understand and conform to all local laws.”
Bitcoin is not illegal, but it is also not legally recognized by governments as a currency. This gray area is what is leading Apple to reject Bitcoin-transaction apps.
We reached out to Banagale to talk about the way that Gliph functions, and how it differs from apps like Coinbase. He notes that the app works with wallets like those from Coinbase and BIPS, but doesn’t function as a wallet itself. Instead, it passes along requests for wallet addresses (just strings of numbers) to the wallets themselves, and back to the recipient. The setup also means that Gliph does not deal with exchanges.
“We didn’t want to specify which wallet you had to use,” Banagale says. “By doing it that way we aren’t really manipulating Bitcoin directly.”
This method means that Gliph isn’t actually processing Bitcoin transactions, just facilitating them. It’s a distinction that may either be lost on Apple, or that isn’t evident enough to differentiate Gliph from other Bitcoin wallet apps.
Banagale notes that Apple itself may be planning on entering the payments game outside of its own stores, and that this may have influenced their decision to reject Bitcoin apps. But that’s probably pretty unlikely. It is clear, though, that Apple isn’t acting as any real advocate of Bitcoin at this point, something that Banagale says it’s in a good position to do.
In the end, the answer is likely fairly simple. From our understanding, Apple rejected both Coinbase and Gliph based on rule 22.1 specifically. Yes, the interpretation of the rule is fairly narrow, as Bitcoin has not been declared legal or illegal in most of the areas that the apps have been available. But this is not a matter of speculation about whether Bitcoin will become legal, it’s a simple matter of whether or not it is currently legal. Since there is no clear-cut government acknowledgement of Bitcoin’s legality, Apple is simply taking the safest, most protective path by disallowing transaction functionality in App Store apps — for now.
Google has similar rules related to illegal activity on its Google Play store, but has chosen not to enforce them on Bitcoin apps at this point. The stance there appears to be one of lenience or, as Banagale puts it, ‘optimism’ about the future legal status of Bitcoin.
Still, Banagale feels that Apple got this one wrong. He points out that Gliph does not actually handle transactions, but only facilitates the triggering of them via online wallets. Yes, it’s a technicality, but there are plenty of apps that function as a basis of a small technical twist. Literally billions have been spent and earned by companies based on technicalities. So, in the case of Gliph, perhaps the functionality merits another look by Apple, but we wouldn’t hold our breath.
This is a case where the rules that Apple uses to govern its store have to take into account the probable byproducts of litigation or legal ramifications, not just current complaints. And for a company with as big a target painted on it as Apple, caution is likely the better part of valor here.
We’ve heard, but don’t know exactly why, Apple has been issuing stern comments to developers about legal notices in apps. They’ve been instructing app makers to ensure that any links to legal info about using Apple assets or other items with terms and conditions of use attached are visible and links are accessible when appropriate.
It could be that the stance on Bitcoin is tied into that, but Apple has had a fairly standard approach to transaction functionality in the App Store for years when it comes to the crypto currency. The recent rejection of Coinbase and Gliph doesn’t represent an about-face so much as perhaps ‘enhanced awareness and activity’ when it comes to rejecting apps based on rule 22.1.
With the recent loss by Apple in the courts related to the e-book case and the installation of a government-appointed monitor, the company is under more scrutiny than ever. Whether that’s coloring their handling of Bitcoin apps is a matter of conjecture, as we’ve gotten no information that indicates one way or another.
As to how Apple might handle Bitcoin transactions in apps in the future, look to how it handles gambling apps, also covered in the App Store rules. For states or countries that allow gambling — like Nevada or the UK — Apple allows apps to use geo-fencing to restrict activities to those regions. A similar system could be put in place to allow Bitcoin transactions in places where it has been deemed ‘legal’ by a government entity.
Is there a personal vendetta towards Bitcoin because Apple could expand its Apple ID-based payment system? That’s not our understanding. But will its attitude towards Bitcoin be one of caution for the foreseeable future? Yes. And any developers looking to include core transaction elements would do well to note that stance for now.

Low Cost High Powered Retina / IPS display Xiaomi Phones Coming to Singapore?
At a press conference in Taiwan, Xiaomi’s newly-minted VP Hugo Barra, previously head of Android product management at Google, said “I’ve been spending a lot of time with potential partners in other countries, in Southeast Asia primarily. We just came back from a trip to Singapore a few weeks ago, and we’re trying to get our operations for Southeast Asia set up as quickly as possible.”
Since then, Tech in Asia has clarified with Xiaomi and while nothing has yet been made official, the company’s next overseas market will “most likely’ be Southeast Asia, and its first stop will “most likely” be Singapore.
So who is Xiaomi and why should you care?
In a nutshell: High-powered Android smartphones at low cost.
Its latest flagship, the Mi3 packs an Nvidia Tegra 4 chip, a 13MP Sony camera and 2GB of RAM, the 16GB version sells for 1999 Chinese yuan (approx. S$412), while the 64GB version sells for 2499 yuan (approx. S$515). These are prices without contract, so if Xiaomi does secure a deal with local telcos they could be offered for less.
The MIUI ROM, made by Xiaomi.
Xiaomi (which translates to “small rice”) is a Chinese company founded in 2010. Android modders will probably know Xiaomi as the people behind MIUI, a custom Android build with a pretty UI. It sold 7 million handsets in 2012, and just as much in the first half of 2013. A report showed that Xiaomi’s flagship Mi2S was the most popular phone sold in China in the first half of 2013, followed by Samsung’s Galaxy S4 (but Xiaomi is still behind Samsung in overall market share). Earlier this year, Xiaomi briefly overtook the iPhone’s marketshare in China, gaining 5% to Apple’s 4.8%.
Xiaomi has been valued at US$10 billion, and the company recently sold 100,000 of its flagship Mi3 smartphone in under 90 seconds, and 150,000 Mi3s in 10 minutes via a unique sale on chat app WeChat. Recently, it held its first overseas sale in Taiwan, and 10,000 of its lower-budget Hongmi smartphone sold in 10 minutes.
The company’s strategy is to sell phones at little or no profit, in order to gain market share. Xiaomi then uses its smartphones as a platform to sell apps and content for revenue. That’s why even though Xiaomi has been dubbed the “Apple of China”, its CEO Lei Jun would rather think of it as the “Amazon of China” instead, which follows a similar strategy with its Kindle devices. Lei has stated that Xiaomi’s three core businesses are actually e-commerce, deals with telcos, and the Internet services such as games.
Hugo Barra (right), formerly VP of Android product management at Google, is now the man responsible for bringing Xiaomi to the rest of the world. Image source: Hugo Barra’s Google+ page.
In September, Hugo Barra, Google’s then-VP in charge of Android product management, left Google to join Xiaomi as Vice President of Xiaomi Global, and is now responsible for bringing Xiaomi to the rest of the world. Currently, Xiaomi’s smartphones are sold only in China, Hong Kong and Taiwan, but come 2014 we might just see Singapore added to that list.

Microsoft Desperate Attempt On Driving Google Down - Scroogled ?
With Xmas round the corner, here is one of Microsoft’s desperate attempt to try and push its product by trying to paint how bad their competitors were, in this case – Google’s Chromebook.
I wonder if Google is going to respond to this video ad – i fancy when tech giants comes out silly ads and fighting like kids over a candy – they can be very interesting.
it’s been nearly two years since Microsoft started pushing a staunchly anti-Google message through its “Scroogled” campaign — since then, Google’s biggest products like Gmail, Google Search, Android, Chrome, and Google Docs have all come under fire as being inferior and less secure than Microsoft’s offerings. (Not to mention these clever mugs and t-shirts.) Now, Microsoft has yet another target: the humble Chromebook. In a new video on the Scroogled website, Microsoft calls in Rick Harrison from reality TV show Pawn Stars to appraise a seller’s Chromebook. Her suggestion that the computer is worth anything elicites a hearty chuckle from Harrison, who then goes on to say “when you’re not connected, it’s pretty much a brick.”
He then notes that a “traditional” PC uses built-in applications — like Microsoft Office, of course. Apparently, unless a computer has Windows and Office, it’s not a “real” laptop in Microsoft’s mind — hardly a surprising viewpoint, but one pretty far from the truth at this point. There’s little doubt that Chrome OS is dependent on the internet, something Google hasn’t exactly hidden since introducing the computers, but there’s finally enough offline support for core services like Gmail, Calendar, Drive and Docs, and offline music, photos and books.
“When you’re not connected, it’s pretty much a brick.”
Given the fact that market penetration for Chrome OS is minimal, certainly compared to the Windows juggernaut, Chromebooks are a particularly odd target for Microsoft’s wrath — The Wall Street Journal notes that IDC claimed Chromebooks have less than one percent marketshare. That probably works in Microsoft’s favor, as the company won’t have to worry about insulting a large population of potential switchers.) But, as the video wraps up, Harrison tells his bewildered would-be Chromebook seller that using a computer such as that just makes it even easier for Google to track your personal data — just another way to get Scroogled. Our advice? Don’t waste your time listening to a reality TV star when deciding what kind of computer to buy.

How to sync Google Calendar to Microsoft Outlook
If you use Outlook for your email and calendar, but also use Google Calendar (say one for business and one for personal), you can easily add your Google Calendar to Outlook so you can view all your calendars in one place.
Go to Google Calendar in your browser.
Log in to your Google account. You will need some information about the Google Calendar you want to add to Outlook for the initial setup in Outlook.
On the calendar page, click the arrow next to the calendar under My calendars and select Calendar settings from the drop-down menu.
In the Private Address section of the Details page that displays, click the green ICAL button.
The Private Address dialog box displays, showing you the URL for the selected Google Calendar. Select the URL and copy it by pressing Ctrl + C.
Open Outlook and click the File tab.
Click the Account Settings button on the Account Information screen and select Account Settings from the drop-down menu.
On the Account Settings dialog box, click the Internet Calendars tab.
On the Internet Calendars tab, click New.
The New Internet Calendar Subscription dialog box displays. In the edit box on the dialog box, paste the URL you copied from your Google account by pressing Ctrl + V. Click Add.
The Subscription Options dialog box displays with the URL displayed as the Location. Enter a title for the calendar, if desired, in the Folder Name edit box. You can also enter an optional Description. The check box under Update Limit is automatically checked by default. We left that setting as is. Click OK to accept your changes and close the dialog box.
Your Google Calendar is added to the list of Internet Calendars on the Account Settings dialog box. Click Close on the dialog box to close it.
The pane on the left side of the screen now lists your Google Calendar in addition to your Outlook Calendar. If you select your Google Calendar under Other Calendars in addition to the Outlook Calendar under My Calendars, both calendars are displayed side by side.
If you have multiple Google Calendars, you can add any of them to Outlook and view them when you want in Outlook without having to log in to your Google account.
No reason to reinvent the wheel. Google had, up until February 2013, an absolutely wonderful Outlook Calendar Sync app that worked seamlessly. I’ve been using it for a couple years and it seamlessly keeps the calendars on all my devices perfectly synced. Then Google removed this wonderful app at the end of February (along with a host of other free services), but stated that if you already had it installed it would continue to work. It does, perfectly.
What Google neglected to mention was that if you could still find the Outlook add-in, it would install and work just fine. Here’s the link Google Calendar Sync Outlook Add-in. Enjoy!

She took a terrible fall but see what happens next - Watch The Video
How many times in life you fell down? How many times in life you were behind? How many times in life you were last? How many times in life you felt giving up?
Life doesn’t give us anything on a platter. The path to success is always hard earned. Often earned with determination and courage. Never give up just because you fall down once. Just because you fall down twice or thrice. There’s nothing that can break your will to win. Nothing that can break your courage to succeed. If you fall down, just get up & run. Believe in you. If you are good enough a fall can’t stop you.
About the video – Heather Dorniden took a bad fall during this race, but she got up and still managed to win the race.
This Race Is Not About Training
This Race Is Not About A Fall
This Race Is About A Rise
Despite Falling, Heather Won
This Is What All Races Are About
This Is What Life Is About …………………………..
Singapore video of three-year-old girl scooting around island gets buzz online
In 2012, there was the artistic video done by photographer and director Keith Loutit which features tilt-view shots of various spots in Singapore.
In November this year, a group of Japanese exchange students did another video featuring people dancing to a J-Pop song at various tourist spots in the city-state.
Now, another similar video has sprouted on the net and it features a cute little three-year-old girl scooting about Singapore on her three-wheeled vehicle.
The video was posted on 2 December 2013 by an Elizabeth Vancura, who is reported to be the mother of the girl, Jemima Vancura.
According to a report by STCommunites, Jemima, her parents and baby sister, were in Singapore for a one-month visit when the parents decided to record a video of Jemima scooting about at various tourist attractions they visited.
Places such as the Peranakan Museum, the Singapore Grand Prix track and Gardens by the Bay were seen in the 4 minute 39 second clip.
The report also said that the family is based in the United Kingdom.
The video has garnered over 6,000 views on YouTube and has received praise from viewers.
"Nice work here! I’m also a bit tired of media images of Singapore. Singapore is so much richer than just the veneer glitz. So yeah, nice work," said a viewer.
Another said, “Great idea for capturing your moments spent here! I also like how you showcased the lesser known parts of Singapore, with the old alleyways and graffitti walls! Thanks for the fantastic work of art!”
