Deleted photos can come back and haunt you, says Chong

KUALA LUMPUR: Beware! With computer softwares that are able to recover deleted data from handphones and personal computers, pictures or videos that are assumed long gone can still come back to haunt you.

Since 2007, there have been more than 13 cases of women who have had their private pictures publicly flaunted on the Internet or via the Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS).

“Most of these cases involved women whose former partners exposed the private photos out of spite,” said MCA Public Services and Complaints Department Head Datuk Michael Chong at a press conference yesterday.

He added that most people were unaware that simply deleting the photos from handphones were insufficient as there were ways to extract the deleted data.

Selangor and Federal Territory Telecommunication Association acting committee member Ivan Er said free, easy-to-use data restoration programmes were easily available on the Internet.

“With just a mere click of the mouse, all deleted data can be restored,” said Er, adding that users should reformat and demagnitise their storage mediums after data deletion as a precaution.

Er also warned that servers of communication service providers could keep records of video calls as there was no stopping rogue employees.

“The privacy policies of these telco companies disallow it, of course,” he said.

The association aims to educate users on the latest frauds and hazards of the telecommunication in­­dustry.

So there's no way to avoid scandal cases like Edison Chan & Elizabeth Wong. Bear in mind that, don't record while you are having affairs. Lol.

I was browsing through forums hope to get a temporary solution for my crappy internet. Was expecting to see something like ipconfig /flushdns. However, I saw one post which I'm particularly agree with. It sounds like this :

I've complaint to them many times (twice a month average) and below is 100% what they will reply :

1) Check telephone line quality -I'm sure my dog did not bite it
2) Bypass splitter/micro filter/fax machine/lightning protector. -I don't have any of those don't blame them.
3) Stand alone connection, from wall socket to modem (No parallel line). -It's a direct connection not more than 1 meter.
4) Flush DNS (Domain Name Server) -with cmd prompt not with water.
5) Switch off the modem, unplug/re-plug all cables, wait for 5 to 10 minutes before switching on the modem. - I will go cook 'indo mee'.
6) Create new dialer and configure DNS (Domain Name Server). -which with HIGH PING & HIGH % packet lost
- (Preferred DNS Server: DNS Server:
7) Clear Temporary Files, Delete Cookies and Delete Files under Internet Options. -Now they blame this.
8) Clear SSL Certificates (Internet Option).
9) Restore default browser settings. -Means do nothing.
10) Temporarily disable firewall settings. -Welcome virus.
11) Perform Windows scan. -Bill Gates they blame you now.
12) Temporarily disable anti virus software. -welcome too torjan.
13) Disable P2P application. -OMFG I can't even walk you say don't run.
14) Reboot computer and the modem. -check your socket fius also
15) Do a bandwidth test from our website.
16)Format your hard disk.
17)Buy a new PC.

CONCLUSION : they probably mean the broadband problem is cause by you or others, its not from TMNUTs or Screamyx.

The last 2 are ridiculous. I think the author was joking. Lol.


Sony Ericsson Idou 12.1 MP Camera Smart Phone !

>> Friday, February 20, 2009

Sony Ericsson showcased an upcoming mobile phone by the concept ‘Idou’, which is going to give us a glimpse of what lies ahead for us, and what Sony Ericsson is currently working on. The ‘Idou’ is one of a number of projects that will be launched this year under the umbrella of Entertainment Unlimited.

The ‘Idou’ is a cameraphone with special focus on media. It will feature a 12.1-megapixel camera with auto focus and an array of advanced camera touch features and a xenon flash. I’m guessing the sensor in this phone will the Sony’s new 1/2.5-inch 12.25 megapixel sensor for mobile phones. That would be awesome! The Media menu will now be fully optimized for the 3.5-inch 16:9 widescreen touch screen, and will enable you to tap directly into your favourite movies, TV-series, video clips and tracks.

The phone will be based on what will become the Symbian Foundation operating system, which means that thousands of applications will be available online. PlayNow will be pre-installed, and will allow you to personalize the phone.

The ‘Idou’ will be available during the second half of 2009 - naturally marketed by a different product name.

How I wish to have that phone. Surely it will come with a hefty price tag. It will surely have a big clash with iphone.

Corresponding to Valentine's Day, everyone was forwarding this. So enjoy :)


Valentine's Quote

>> Saturday, February 14, 2009

Precisely one month from my last post, I am here to write something corresponding to a big day of lovers, Valentine's Day.

As expected, I am here writing this, of course I am one of those singles.

As I browse through my MSN friends lists, I decided to quote some of these personal messages from "bachelors" in my post. These personal message doesn't anyhow lack of creativity. They can be mainly assorted into 3 categories:

Sad & pitiful Versions :

  • 陪伴着我过情人节的竟是伤风和感冒...
  • Perma Sat Luen (Permanently 失恋).
  • 情人节。曾几何时我开始介怀一个人过情人节了。
  • Single Valentine , Lonely Valentine.
  • My Valentine (continue with a set of sad emoticons).

Sour Grapes Versions:

  • 爱不爱结果都叫人伤心.
  • Love is hard.

Underachieve Versions:

  • 爱,怎么说出口.
  • 我只差了一分勇气.
  • Perhaps Love.

Ok. I saw one personal message was truly funny. It sounds like this :

I can save my money for valentine's present for the next 21 years.

My comment was: you don't start to be in love with someone since the day you were born. Lol.

Hope you all don't mind for the sake of quoting your personal messages.

If I were to be classified into 1 of these categories, I would be in underachieve category. Well I guess I am stopping here. Wishing everyone here, Happy Valentine's Day.
