[Update 12/2/2016]: A lot has changed over the past few months, particularly with Celcom, Digi, and U Mobile. These major telecommunication companies have unveiled their latest offerings, so let’s take a look at them one by one after the break.
There are four major telcos here in Malaysia that offer postpaid voice and messaging services along with data – Maxis, Celcom, DiGi and U Mobile. Each of these telcos have their own rates for different voice calls/SMS/MMS and data that are catered for different people in the market, so which one is best suited for your usage? We’ve compiled a list of all the plans offered by each of these telcos so if you want to subscribe to a postpaid line or simply wish to port to a different telco, look no further. These rates are the latest ones offered by these four telcos, which includes the latest plans from DiGi (the new SmartPlan plans with 4G LTE), as well as U Mobile’s latest Unlimited plans.
Just a little reminder, none of these plans are tied to any contract. Contract only applies for phone bundles, or when the telco gives you an extra discount for signing up for a contract. Otherwise, you will be free to change your plans anytime you want.
As some of you might have heard, Mobile World Congress (MWC) will take place once again in Barcelona later this month and many brands including Samsung, LG, and Xiaomi will be there to unveil their new products to the world. However, that is apparently not the case for HTC even though the company will be setting up a booth there.
Remedy Studios has announced the availability of its upcoming third-person shooter, Quantum Break, for the PC. Prior to the announcement, Quantum Break was first unveiled back in 2013 as an Xbox One exclusive. What makes this the game interesting (or not) is the fact that it will be the first DirectX 12-only game to be released.
Qualcomm has also announced three new processors – the Snapdragon 625, 435, and 425 – in addition to the Snapdragon 2100 Wear processor. The company has also announced the arrival of the Snapdragon X16 LTE modem, which is capable of achieving network speeds of up to one Gigabit.
Lenovo has announced the new Vibe P1 Turbo in Indonesia, although there is some uncertainty about what makes this new smartphone different from the regular Vibe P1. At the moment, it shares practically the same specifications although it looks like the Vibe P1 Turbo might include a little extra RAM.
The upcoming Hitman game, which is due to be released on the 11th of March this year, is now said to be the first triple-A game to be released with DirectX 12 support. In addition to that, AMD has said that the highly anticipated game will also feature full usage of its Asynchronous Compute Engine, which can only be found in AMD Radeon GPUs that have the latest GCN – Graphics Core Next – architecture.
Hideo Kojima is quickly getting back into the swing of things after leaving Konami. His current world tour has ended up including a stop at the Youtube Space in Tokyo to shoot the first video for Kojima Production’s new Youtube channel. The video itself doesn’t reveal anything new about the studio’s next project, but it does spend 45 minutes talking about movies.
Ubisoft has stated that the company will be taking a step back this year to reassess the entire Assassins Creed franchise. This means that there will not be any upcoming Assassins Creed games to be released this year. Interestingly, the last game in the franchise to be released was Assassins Creed Syndicate, which – despite its flaws – was a reasonably good Assassins Creed game.
Internet goers now have the opportunity to experience the wonders of Windows 3.1 once again – or for the first time. The Internet Archive has uploaded a collection of practically ancient Windows programmes, which are now helpfully emulated through a web browser. Naturally, there are the classics like SkiFree, Taipei, and.. the Windows 95 demo?
