Two days, two new phone announcements. Just after comparing the brand new OnePlus 2 to the 2015 flagship smartphones, Motorola announced two new Moto X smartphones – a mid-range Snapdragon 615-powered Moto X Play, and a flagship Moto X Style that brings pure Android to users. So how do these two devices compare to other devices within their range?
We are now two days away from the public release of Windows 10 on 29 July and while this will not be the last time you’ll hear about the operating system on our site , it is now time for the final part of our Get To Know Windows 10 series. For the final piece of the series, we are going to slightly broaden our discussion and are taking a look into productivity with the help of several new features within the operating system.
Welcome to yet another edition of our Get To Know Windows 10 series and for those who are new to the series, so far we have covered two topics: the new Start Menu, and Windows Hello. Now that we are only a week away from the official global release of Windows 10, the timing is rather right to discuss yet another new feature in the operating system called Windows Continuum.
Ride sharing service Uber has once again been dragged into the limelight, although the timing of the news is rather suspicious. We recently had a chance to sit down with Leon Foong, General Manager and Head of Operations for Uber Malaysia, before the latest round of protests and pronouncements against the legality of Uber in Malaysia to hear about its latest plans for the country. Plans that included a new programme to attract more drivers that kicked off at exactly the same time as the latest round of protests from taxi drivers. Hmm.
Welcome back to our Get To Know Windows 10 series which kicked off last week by taking a look at the new Start Menu that is one of the latest features in Windows 10. This week, we are going to discuss about Windows 10’s offering of a more personal and natural experience. A classic example of this is in a new feature in the operating system called Windows Hello which is a secure way to access a Windows 10 device.
[UPDATE (945PM)]: We have finally obtained OPPO Malaysia’s side of the story. Learn more here.
As per our report earlier today, we discovered that the R7 Lite that OPPO showcased at its Malaysian launch event last night might not be the smartphone that the company claimed it to be. Upon further investigation, it turns out that our suspicion is indeed spot on: it was actually the higher spec R7 which will not be released in Malaysia.
One of the new things that Microsoft has promised to users once Windows 10 arrives into the market later this month is the sense of familiarity. Apart from retaining the desktop and taskbar, the company is also trying to accomplish this is by reintroducing the Start Menu once again which has been a staple of the Windows operating system from Windows 95 until it was noticeably missing from Windows 8 in favour of the Start Screen.
Last week, we were invited to the annual Further with Ford conference, comprising of a series of keynotes and tours that revolve around a lofty theme: the future. We heard and saw plenty of Ford’s research findings on future trends, as well as an interesting convergence between the automotive and the technology industries. This was especially evident when we were invited to the company’s new Research and Innovation Lab. Here’s a glimpse of what we saw at the company’s state-of-the-art facility.
“What in the world are we doing here?”
That was a prevailing thought in the early stages of the Future With Ford, which we attended over the course of this week. But as the keynotes and experiential tours passed, we noticed that the group of global journalists invited were not merely from automotive publications: there were people from economic dailies, radio talk shows, other tech media, and even analysts in global trends. One of the keynote speakers was Alexis Ohanian, co-founder of Reddit.
Clearly, this was a different sort of global event.

The internet is a wonderful place that keeps you connected and helps you find things easier. However, sometimes not everyone are searching for cute cat photos – the internet can be one of the nastiest places ever. Yesterday, pictures of the child of a local comedian, Harith Iskander, were found around various websites including those containing pornographic images.
It isn’t easy to understand how one of Malaysia’s favourite comedians must be feeling right now, but we’re sure all parents can emphatise. Sadly, the internet is also home to some seriously creepy people, and we can do our part to make sure incidents like this does not happen. So how do you check if you or your children’s pictures have been used on the internet?
