South Korea’s Internet is known for being one of the fastest in the world, and the country has grabbed another accolade after it become the world’s first to see high-speed Internet technologies pass 100 percent domestic penetration.

 

According to newly released data from the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), reported by the Korean Herald, the rate of high-speed Internet access versus population in Korea reached 100.6 percent at the end of 2011, up from 89.8 percent a year previous.

 

That doesn’t mean that Korea has more Internet users than people (that’s impossible!), the OECD measures the use of a number of technologies to generate the score. Those included in the ‘high-speed Internet’ bracket are third- and fourth-generation mobile networks, broadband (and beyond) Internet services and WiFi.

 

As well as being the first to pass 100 percent, the Korean figure is nearly twice as high as the 54.3 percent average for the OECD, which includes the Germany, the UK and the US among its 34 members. The Asian country is marginally ahead of Sweden (98 percent), Finland (87.8 percent) and Japan (82.4 percent) at the top end of the rankings.

 

Mobile is a key part of the metric and Korea notably saw its smartphone ownership rate pass 50 percent, meaning that they are owned by close to 27 million people in the country. LTE is also booming, providing a quality platform for mobile Internet services there.

 

Korea’s lightening fast networks have seen apps grow to become standard among smartphone-wielding consumers. For example, messaging app KakaoTalk has an impressive 90 percent install-rate on smartphones there.

Apple’s main manufacturing contractor, Foxconn, is currently discussing plans with the Indonesian Ministry of Industry to build a new $1 billion facility in the republic. The new manufacturing plant will create approximately 1 million jobs in a region where the average monthly wage is around US$100 (about RM315) a month.

 

Foxconn already operates several manufacturing plants in China and Brazil, where it assembles electronic goods for many of the world’s biggest technology companies. The company stated that it was attracted to Indonesia over Malaysia and Vietnam due to its high rate of economic growth – around 6 per cent a year. In addition, Foxconn says that the planned Indonesian plant will help manufacture “good quality products and make them available in the markets at lower prices.”

 

Foxconn projects that the plant to create over 1 million jobs once completed but is quick to point out that “nothing is finalized yet”.

Windows 8 is scheduled to launch on 26 October. The next generation of Microsoft software for computers, laptops and tablets will arrive in three months, paving the way for Windows Phone 8, Windows 8 tablets, and the Microsoft Surface.

 

Steven Sinofsky, president of Microsoft’s Windows division, made the announcement during the company’s annual sales meeting, according to the Windows Team Blog.

Windows 8 boasts a new interface, consisting of large coloured squares that act as shortcuts to your apps. It’s a front end that should be great for touchscreen PCs and tablets, but the jury’s out on whether it’ll work on regular computers — click here for our guide to how to use the Windows 8 interface.

 

With a release date confirmed for Windows 8, Microsoft has cleared the way for tablets powered by Windows 8, and phones powered by the mobile spin-off, Windows Phone 8. These portable versions of Windows are also ready to roll in October.

 

There will be two types of Windows 8 slate: the full-fat version, and the streamlined tablet-specific Windows 8 RT for ARM devices. The flagship Windows 8 RT tablet is Microsoft’s own Microsoft Surface, challenging the market-leading iPad before the end of the year.

 

As if that wasn’t enough excitement for one month, October is also set to see the release of the new iPhone 5, along with Apple’s OS X Mountain Lion software. With phones, tablets and computers going up against each other, it’s the first time in years that Apple and Microsoft have squared off so directly against each other — and I can’t wait.

Find Google public document

By on July 16, 2012

Google Docs and Google Drive don’t offer the option to find public files, but you can do that using Google search. Now that the Google Docs robots.txt file allows search engines to index most of the public files, you should be able to find them, assuming that there are some links that point to them.

Search engines only index the files that are “public on the Web”. By default, files are private, but you canchange the visibility from the “Share” box.

Here are some useful queries that let you find public Google Drive/Docs files (you can append some keywords to the queries):

* [site:docs.google.com/document/d] – find text documents

* [site:docs.google.com/presentation/d] – find presentations

* [site:docs.google.com/drawings/d] – find drawings

* [site:docs.google.com/file/d] – find files: images, videos, PDF files, Microsoft Office documents and more (you should click “repeat the search with the omitted results included” since there are many files with similar titles)

* [site:docs.google.com/folder/d] – find folders (collections of files and other folders)

* [site:docs.google.com/open] – find other documents, folders and files (the links redirect to other URLs)

Public spreadsheets and forms can’t be indexed by search engines.

Maxis and REDtone have entered into an infrastructure and spectrum sharing agreement that will enable both players to speed up the deployment of their 4G LTE mobile networks. Together with REDtone, Maxis claims that, once built, its 4G LTE network will be able to deliver the fastest mobile data connectivity not just in Malaysia but in the region with transmission rates up to 150Mbps. Maxis say that the speeds that its next-gen network is capable of delivering will be two times above the theoretical limit of what the other local 4G operators can currently deliver.

 

Maxis is looking to launch is 4G LTE service “early next year” in parts of the Klang Valley with deployment to other regions “closely thereafter”. REDtone is expected to launch its mobile broadband service sometime in 2013.

 

“We are looking to set a new benchmark in data service quality,” Chief Executive Officer, Sandip Das

 

With a capital expenditure investment of RM3.7 billion in the past three years, Maxis say it is the biggest network investor in the country with 81% – or 5,200 sites – of its network now in high speed 3G. Out of those 5,200 3G sites, 3,400 are HSPA+ enabled capable of delivering speeds with a theoretical limit of 42Mbps.

 

Local operators have been playing the waiting game with LTE network as the money required to build such a network with enough coverage to make it useful to subscribers is immense. But as the demand for mobile data increase beyond the capacity of existing 3G networks, the need to shift to the next generation in mobile connectivity will be hard to ignore. Collaborations such as this is one way to speed things up as operators make more efficient use of the spectrum that is available to them while MCMC finalise its 2.6Mhz LTE spectrum allocation to operators.

 

Will we be seeing LTE phones next year? Yes but we believe when LTE networks come online within the first quarter of 2013 at the earliest, operators will offer data dongles and MiFis first before moving to dual-mode LTE phones and tablets that will still depend on 2G/3G networks for voice, text messaging and back-up data connectivity when LTE coverage is not available.

 

In any case, 2013 is going to a year to look forward to as 4G comes to Malaysia in a big way. As a result of that you can expect to see cost for broadband connectivity drop as well. We’re definitely looking forward to a next year.

The new notes will be in circulation alongside the existing banknotes which will remain legal tender. The theme for the banknotes will be “Distinctively Malaysia” and will feature iconic Malaysian sights like Mount Kinabalu as well as the Wau Bulan and Rafflesia flower. The new banknotes will come in the same denominations as the previous run with the exception of a new addition, the RM20 note. On top of that, the new RM1 and RM5 notes will be polymer as opposed to the regular material now.
