Youtube may offer the pay movies to the public in the near future. Currently youtube is still in the mid of negotiaions with the major Hollywood studios for the deal to offer pay per watch for the full-length movies.


If the agreement is reached, this will be the major revolution for YouTube which has built the huge audience by offering the free video clips and earn most of it revenus from online advertising. With the deal, this will put YouTube to directly compete with the services provider such as Netflix, Amazon and Apple, which currently allow their customer to buy or rent movie.

Facebook down?

By on August 20, 2009

icon_facebookSome thing happen tonight while I’m posting the product that I sold to e-bay, Cari Mall and EC-Lifestyle.com. At the mean time, I’m thinking of posting some news and link to the most famous sociall network portal – Facebook.

I believe that Facebook have a very strong and solic hardword and infrastructure, but I see something that I have never seem before at facebook.com – “Service Unavailable – DNS Failure”.



Is that this mean the the one of the world biggest social networking website down?


Hopefully is my area having problem to access Facebook and what I saw on my screen is the error message from some other party such as our ISP (We used to that becuase Streamyx(one of the Internet provider in Malaysia) always have this kind of problem.

Hopefully what I saw now is not the true.

The price for me personally is too high compare to the unofficial iPhone out at the market. But if you are the Apple phone, i don’t think the “small” diff will kick you out from buying that.


Basically there are 3 plan available to tie with the iPhone, which are i-Value Plans with 12 months contract, i-Value Plans with 24 months contract, and Value Plus Plans with 6 months contract.


12 months contract: iPhone 3G price from RM 1,080 to RM 2,290

24 months contract: iPhone 3G price from FREE to RM 1,890

24 months contract: iPhone 3G price from FREE to RM 1,890

Click here to check on the i-Value Plans in detail

6 months contract: iPhone 3G price from RM 2,540 to RM 2,960

6 months contract: iPhone 3G price from RM 2,540 to RM 2,960

Click here to check on the i-Value Plans in detail


The plan table at the Maxis web site look a bit confuse, let’s explain on the i-Values Plan for 24 months contract.


If I sign up for i-Value 1, which mean I can buy the iPhone 16GB at the price of RM 1890, then I need to pay for RM 400 for advance payment. On top of that, my monthly commintment if RM 100 for 2 years.


No matther which plan are you sign up with to get your iPhone, I don’t think any of them are cheaper then the unlock version that you get from other place then Maxis. I believe most of the Malaysian’s thinking user will still trend to the unlock version (I believe most of the Apple fans will hate me by saying that)
