Channel News Asia have conducted a survey on their website regarding the coming Youth Olympic Games in Singapore.

The poll question of "Will you be watching any Youth Olympic Games competition?"

With choices like
A. Yes, I'll be at most competition venues to catch the action live
B. Yes, I'll watch selective games in person
C. Yes, if any Singapore athlete enters the finals
D. Yes, I'll catch the action only on TV
E. I'm not interested at all
F. What's YOG about?

The results was unbelievable!

* Screen capture from http://www.channelnewsasia.com/polls/index.php?id=494&ranid=3134

A total of 90% of the surveyor which is 3483 individual voted "I'm not interested at all"!

Is this the reflection of the event on ground level?

Singapore have pretty make adjustment to YOG such as going to the extend to allocate the second-leftmost lane on affected routes will be designated as the YOG Lane for official vehicle. That move itself have another survey for the road users. 54% of the road user feedback they will give way to official vehicle while 28% voted No and the remainder 18% were unaware there was such allocation.

Nonetheless, let's hope the YOG will be a success.

iPad launching in Singapore

I received this funny photo from one of the forwarded mail in my mailbox. It should be the time when the news of Apple iPad was announced.

The above images are credit to KuvatON.com

It get me laughing but somehow it does have some logic to it. Anyway iPad will be releasing tomorrow in Singapore and the 3 telcos are giving their data plan packages for iPad users.

SingTel have a one time registration fees of $12.60 for unlimited three days data usage. M1's prepaid plan costs $20 for a cap of total 1GB for 30 days and StarHub's prepaid plan costs $32 for 60 days with a cap of 2GB data.

Will it be a hit in Singapore since you can surf the net on free wireless Singapore with a laptop? Hm...

Ants

From young, I have always fascinated by these tiny creatures called Ants. How they work together, crawled in a straight line and how they communicate with each other. I learned to respect them more when I was bitten by some red ants.

I saw some red ant when I was out to try out some Macro shots and they were my subject.


As they were busy looking for food, I was busy trying to hold my camera still to try capturing them, but they crawl too fast for me to actually follow. Their effort pays off as they found a helpless caterpillar.


Together they carried the spoil home.


Do you know an ant can carry 20 times of it weights? Well imagine a person who have the ability of an ant. Here are more facts of Ants that you may want to know.

Handcent not vibrating on Android 2.1 on HTC Hero

I have been trying the whole week to get my Handcent to vibrate again when my phone was set in Vibrating mode. All this happen when I upgraded my HTC Hero that uses OTA to update the firmware.

I have tried to uninstall it and restart the OS and follow by install again. However it never vibrate anymore in vibrating mode when message came in. However when someone called, the phone will vibrate. Is there how it should be? I don't think so.

Anyone facing the same problem and found any solution for this?

Updates: A work around found!

Showing Fans Thumbnail on Facebook Like Widget a good thing?

If you have been visiting some blog, you would see a common site of Facebook Like Widget (used to be called Facebook Fan Page) for that blog or website.

If you happen to "Like" those sites, it is very likely that your facebook profile picture as a thumbnail and your name will be displayed on the site randomly. When anyone click on that profile, your PUBLIC profile will be display on a new page.


While showing the massive fans or people who like the website a good thing for the blogger or web master, that somehow also prevent people who enjoy privacy to join in.

In short, having a display thumbnail of those who like your blog on facebook a good thing? What do you think? Does that prevent you to "like" a page?
