Apart from officially launching its new LTE-enabled DG SmartPlan postpaid plans and the equally new weekly mobile internet prepaid package yesterday, the telco has also provided an update on the current state of its network during a media event before.
According to the telco, DiGi’s network is much better than before. Frankly speaking, that is one bold claim.
Bernama yesterday has published a report that Kementerian Dalam Negeri (Ministry of Home Affairs) has put a ban on an Ultraman book called “Ultraman The Ultra Power” due to elements that might cause unrest among public. The news then spread like a wildfire, generated a lot of interesting response from plenty of netizens who are clearly baffled at the move.
Some even thought that KDN is banning the whole family of UItraman since the original news piece by Bernama didn’t specify the reason behind the ban. However, that is not actually accurate.
We woke up today to the news that the mysterious founder of Bitcoin has been found; and that his name is indeed Satoshi Nakamoto. That news was quickly followed by reports of the original report was mistaken, and the person they found is denying all connections to Bitcoin. All of which has resulted in discussions about individual privacy.
Last night, Newsweek published a rather interesting article which claims that it has able to locate and identify the actual person that is responsible for the birth of Bitcoin. According to the article, Satoshi Nakamoto is indeed the creator’s real name (his full name is Dorian Prentice Satoshi Nakamoto though) and is a 64-years old Japanese-American engineer that lives in California.
After Newsweek’s article went live and viral throughout the globe, it led to an immediate media frenzy with journalists starting to camp in front of his home in pursuit for further clarification. He eventually came out of his home and grabbed a journalist from Associated Press to tell his side of the story.
Surprised by a different Facebook layout this morning? Don’t worry, you computer did not go crazy or get hacked, it’s because Facebook has yet again rolled out a new design for its News Feed. Remember the new design that was announced last year that promised a larger News Feed area to display larger images, and will only show you things that “you care about”? That never happened and fast forward one year later, Facebook is back again with a new design and this time, it’s for real.
So, DiGi has finally enabled LTE connectivity for its smartphone customers this week – around 8 months after it was initially made available for tablets and broadband customers. That being said though, this particular service is currently available only for postpaid customers.
Hence, we asked DiGi at the company’s media event earlier today if the telco has plan to extend LTE to prepaid customers. As expected, it turns out that DiGi is indeed planning to offer LTE to its prepaid customers.
As you might have read yesterday, DiGi has rolled out a set of new DG SmartPlan postpaid plans which also signifies the official availability of DiGi 4G LTE service for smartphones. While subscribers to these new plans receive access to LTE connectivity, how about customers that are still on the previous iteration of DG SmartPlan postpaid plans such as SmartPlan 48, SmartPlan 68 and SmartPlan 88?
If you are one of these customers, don’t worry if you still not able to utilize LTE connectivity on your LTE smartphone at the time being. Just like how it was stated in the FAQ section of DiGi LTE’s website, LTE connectivity will soon be made available to you according to the confirmation by Christian Thrane, the Chief Marketing Officer of DiGi at a media event earlier today.
Images on the internet tend to get used without the permission or even credit to the original creator. Getty Images, which licenses stock photos for official use, has decided that if you can’t beat them you might as well join them. As a result it is now allowing anyone to use its high quality images; as long as they use the embed feature.
Now that DiGi has introduced brand new DG SmartPlan postpaid plans that are all equipped with 4G LTE connectivity (finally), it looks like you will be able to sign up for a device bundle for those plans as well. The telco has recently updated its device bundle page, offering devices from Samsung, Sony, Motorola and more that are tied to the new DG SmartPlan 50/78/108/148 postpaid plans.
As what we have just reported just moments ago, DiGi has officially revealed the availability of LTE for smartphone through its newly refreshed line-up of DG SmartPlan. That being said, the LTE connectivity is not activated automatically.
By that, we mean there might be couple of things that DiGi customers need to do in order to use it. One such requirement could be a new USIM card.
You know how convenient it is to be able to use your Facebook or Google account to sign into new services, saving you the hassle of having to crete a new account and a new password that you tend to forget? Well, it looks like Yahoo might be removing such integration in the near future, reports Reuters.
Ellen DeGeneres’ Oscar selfie tweet, one of the highlights of the awards show, has now over three million retweets, far surpasing the previous record holder by US President Barack Obama. The selfie was captured with a Samsung Galaxy Note 3, which raised suspicion that Samsung – a major sponsor for this year’s Oscars – may have played a powerful PR stunt to promote its flagship phablet at the awards. Naturally, other smartphone makers began making fun of the selfie at Samsung’s expense.
The Steam Family Sharing service is now available to all Steam users, after spend quite a long time in beta testing. With this, users are able to share their entire library with family and friends. Putting those games that have gone unplayed for months and years to good use.
Family Sharing on allows up to 10 other computers to gain access to a single library, but should be more than enough for a single household and several friends. There is a catch though, as the service only allows one person to access the library of games at a time. Which limits how useful this will be. Guests accessing the library will be granted a short amount of time to save and exit the game if the owner logs into his account.
Saves and achievements are stored differently, although borrowers will not be able to access games that require a subscription or is region locked.
