The cell phone business seems so ancient these days that it’s easy to believe the sides are entrenched.

 

You’re either an iPhone person who mocks anyone who has an Android phone. Or you’re one of those Android or other non-iPhone people who derides everyone who has an iPhone.

Is it worth trying to get people to switch? Apple thinks it is.

 

In a new campaign aimed at the Android types, Apple claims that it’s better along several axes. More than that, though, the campaign wants you to believe that it’s astoundingly easy to give up your Android and come over to the bright — or, depending on your perspective, dark — side.

 

Five short ads highlight Apple’s allegedly superior offerings. One claims that the music in your world will become so much more jolly when you have an iPhone. For no obvious reason whatsoever.

 

Another says that the iPhone keeps you away from digital snoopers — and they’re very creepy-looking.

 

Then there’s speed. Apparently, iPhones are far faster than Android phones. Blindingly so, says this ad. Oh, it seems to me that all new phones start fast and then slow down as they age.

 

Another ad insists iPhone will straighten out your photos — and migrating them is so easy. Why, Apple will even send movers to your house to help you.

 

Talking of easy, the last ad doesn’t even bother with a semblance of rationality, settling for just telling you to jump because it’s simple.

 

Is this all persuasive? Not if you’re ingrained in your ways and fear that something, somewhere along the line will be lost if you change systems. This campaign is more a nag for those who already have the nagging feeling that something might be better on the other side of the fence.

 

For me, it’s like cooking with gas or electric. They both work. I’ve always been comfortable with gas. Last week, I ended up cooking on a very fancy electric stove top. It was surprisingly good. Would I get one? Probably not.

 

The gas hasn’t let me down enough yet.

 

 

 

Facebook has allowed video creators to generate income from content that have been pirated by others.

Facebook users will utilize a ‘Rights Manager’ feature, which provides a video matching software that automatically identifies videos that were re-posted of ripped off. This allows user to generate some revenue by claiming a portion of the money generated from mid-roll ads in the video.

With Facebook developing its own TV App to become a premium video destination, it is important that they protect the users that post their videos through the social network giant. When ‘Right Manage’ was first released last year, users could only take down the pirated video or leave it be for additional reach.

YouTube has also implemented a similar measure through their Content ID that allows users to detect similar videos. Like Facebook, YouTube allows video creators to take down videos or monetize pirated ones as well.

While you’re still patiently waiting for Hyperlapse to finally arrive on Android, Instagram has decided to fill the void by releasing Boomerang, an app that lets you record one-second videos. Nothing more, nothing less.

At which point we should mention that Boomerang’s one-second videos aren’t technically videos, as they are actually composed of a burst of five photos, which are collated and subsequently played forwards and backwards repetitively to achieve a so-called ‘boomerang’ effect.

Because Boomerang doesn’t have a dedicated, self-contained feed, users will be required to share their GIF-like videos on Instagram, Facebook, or other social networking platforms. In fact, you don’t even need to create an account to use Boomerang.

Boomerang is currently available for both iOS and Android devices for free.

Ahead of the Apple Watch’s launch on April 24th, Apple has released a series of video guides showing how the Watch works. You can catch them on Apple’s website or on Apple’s YouTube channel (or just watch them all here).

 

Right now, you can watch an overview video, see how to use Messages on the Watch, change the Watch face, as well as how the new Digital Touch function works. These are the first of 11 videos, with seven more videos listed as ‘coming soon’.

 

The Apple Watch will launch first in Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, the UK and the US, with pre-orders opening on April 10th.

 

From April 10th, Apple Watch will be available for preview, try-on by appointment in Apple’s retail stores in Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, the UK and the US. On April 14th, Apple Watch will be available online or by reservation in Apple’s retail stores and select Apple Authorised Resellers in China and Japan, one of which looks like this store in Isetan, Japan.

 

The Apple Watch will be on sale, starting from US$349 for the Apple Watch Sport to a whopping US$10,000 and above for the Apple Watch Edition.

 

No word yet on when the Watch will arrive in Malaysia, the only clue is that the Apple Malaysia site has the words “Available in 2015” on it. Not sure if the Watch is for you?

 

 

Today is a special day for YouTube where Google launch their first standalone apps for iPhone to replace the build in YouTube apps that has been removed from iOS 6 which going to release very soon. Starting from today, you can download the official YouTube app for iPhone and iPod touch from the App Store.

 

Google announced the release on its official blog early Tuesday. The company touted the apps’ channel guide, instant search recommendations and options to share to social networking sites. The new app is built by YouTube engineers, to give our iPhone and iPod touch users the best mobile experience.

 

The release notes for the app list the following features:

  •  Enjoy YouTube’s vast video catalog, including official music videos
  • Find videos and channels more easily with voice search and query autocomplete
  • Subscribe to channels and instantly access your subscriptions with the channel guide UI
  • Read comments, browse related videos, enable subtitles and more – all while watching
  • Easy video sharing to Google+, E-mail, Facebook and Twitter
  • The new app comes with a trade-off. Google says tens of thousands of videos, such as music videos from VEVO, are now available that weren’t before, but users will now have to sit through advertising to watch them.

Apple confirmed the move (and Google’s upcoming app) with a statement: “Our license to include the YouTube app in iOS has ended, customers can use YouTube in the Safari browser and Google is working on a new YouTube app to be on the App Store.”

 

The following are the screen shot for the new YouTube apps:

 

 

This is a very romantic video shot when the Co-Founder of nuffnang – Timothy Thiah propose to his girlfriend at an Italian restaurant in Kuala Lumpur when she having dinner with friend. Initially the video is just a sweet memory for both of them and to share with their close family and friend. The creative and sweet video gain about 4 million views online just within a week, this is totally out of their expectation.

Let’s enjoy the sweet memory of  of Timothy Tiah and his beloved Audrey.

It’s the classic ongoing battle which has been raging relentlessly without a ceasefire since the birth of social networking – how much privacy and security (if any) do you actually have on these sites? And who wins in these areas (if anyone)? The two top dogs currently slugging it out for the number one spot are Google and Facebook. Each both have things going for them and things going against them.

 

For example, Google kicks the pants off Facebook when it comes to working capital and monthly unique users. But the search engine giant falls down completely in the areas of banning the use of pseudonyms and blocking individuals from seeing a post. Both sites are also the subject of a huge number of cyberattacks, which will put your data at risk when someone finally succeeds at breaking through. So who has the best firewalls and site security?

 

It’s difficult to tell for sure who trumps who in the privacy and security battles, which is why this handy infographic from Veracode sums things up nicely for you to make your own mind up. Let us know what you think. Who would you trust more with your private information? Google or Facebook? Or neither? Do you think either network is improving in these areas or getting worse?

 


 

Have you ever imaging how the 1 Trillion dollars in cash will look like? just watch on the following video and you will understand it better.

What 1 Trillion Dollars Looks Like.

I just started my new blog call (Share A Video) recently and the blog is mainly use to share all the video with my reader. And the video source are mainly the video I found is intereting from other web site such as facebook, youtube, and etc.

 

But I do face a problem where facebook don’t allow you to actually embed the video into other web site, after I googling for a while and finally found the script that help you to embed the video.


Every video uploaded on Facebook has a unique ID that you can find in the browser’s address bar (look for the value of parameter “v”).

Copy that number and replace it with xxx in the code below.





From now, you may watch the video from facebook in your web site or blog without need to register or log in into facebook account.


The following video is one of the video from facebook

Are you even thinking of how the Google data center look like? How are they actually host the most stable system by providing such as good search result and response to all the internet user.


Recently Google has released a video showing a data center of theirs.

Google says this data center has slots for over 45,000 servers in 45 containers.
