General Midweek Geekery – Malaysia Ebay and more

So what’s up in the tech world?

One big thing I only just found out yesterday…is Ebay[/url] has finally reached Malaysia! Wow!

http://www.ebay.com.my/[/url]

I used to use Ebay quite a lot back in the UK, you can get some cheap second hand computer parts, things that are no longer produced or in circulation (useful when stuff burns)..

You can also pick up some weird and rare collectors items like special edition DVD’s and various other film related nerd stuff (signatures, signed shirts/posters etc.).

Also useful for selling off random crap that is worth something but you don’t want any more..

Let’s hope it’s takes off as Lelong[/url] IMHO is a piece of crap, but it’s busy.

Apparently it’s been around since 24-Jun-2004 according to the whois record..

MYNIC Registration No.: D1A043173
Record created on 24-Jun-2004
Record expires on 24-Jun-2005
Record last updated on 17-Aug-2004

And it was registered by High Options Sdn Bhd, active since November apparently.

There is a good article from the Star on it HERE.

There has been no press release, and very little awareness AFAIK, so well I’m just trying to spread the word a little.

On another note, if you have a digital camera, and you have problems organising photos, you probably need Picasa!

Google has bought out Picasa 2 (which used to be $29.95) and is now releasing it for free, it’s a great piece of software.

Picasa is software that helps you instantly find, edit and share all the pictures on your PC. Every time you open Picasa, it automatically locates all your pictures (even ones you forgot you had) and sorts them into visual albums organized by date with folder names you know. You can drag and drop to arrange your albums and make labels to create new groups. Picasa makes sure your pictures are always organized.

Picasa also makes advanced editing simple by putting one-click fixes and powerful effects at your fingertips. And Picasa makes it a snap to share your pictures — you can email, print at home, make gift CDs, instantly share via Helloâ„¢, and even put pictures on your own blog.

If you want to be scared, depressed or feel like punching your boss in the face..

Check out the Salary Clock[/url]..

In the time it takes me to earn $1 (That’s RM aswell), Michael Dell has earnt about $4000USD…

Also if you have a web-page, business site or blog you should check out this..

I would mention aswell probably the best resource for all around web-stuff including programming, HTML, look and feel, search engine optimisation and the whole package is http://www.webmasterworld.com/[/url]

    Yeah well star reported about it in November so I’d guess it’s been around since then at least. Just found out about it a bit late heh, no publicity :/
