Blackberry Playbook is another tablet just like Apple Ipad, Samsung Galaxy Tab, and Dell Streak. Blackberry Playbook is not as big as the Ipad but not too small like the Galaxy Tab. The Playbook is designed to be in average size so that it is light and yet still convenient to be used. If you find that the Ipad is too big for you and the Galaxy Tab is too small, then the Playbook is the only answer for you.
Blackberry Playbook also has fast response time and you can open any program almost instantly. No wonder since the Playbook is powered by 1 GHz dual-core Cortex A9 processor compared to the Samsung Galaxy Tab which only use 1 GHz Cortex A8 processor. The efficiency of the Playbook also comes from the 1 GB internal memory. This far exceeds the memory that is supported in Ipad and Samsung Galaxy Tab.
If you occasionally snap pictures, Blackberry Playbook is definitely for you. Compared to other tablets, the Playbook offers the best camera feature by having 3 mega pixel front camera and 5 mega pixel rear camera. Ipad definitely is the worst choice since the tablet does not have built-in camera at all. Besides the good camera, you can also record High Definition 1080p video using the Playbook.
Currently, the Blackberry Playbook supports 3G connectivity just like the other tablets. However Blackberry promises that the 4G connectivity will be available in the future. That means Playbook users will have the opportunity to taste better internet surfing experience that exceeds other tablets.

It is not Digi Wow actually. The correct words should be Digi WWWOW. I don’t know whose the one that give such a crap name for such amazing awards like this. Instead of Digi WWWOW, I am sure Digi Wow has more impact and cool. One of a tips in choosing a domain name is to get something that is easy to remember and easy to write. Geez.. if there is no advertisement around the blogosphere about the awards, I bet I would never know the Digi Wow website. From this point and onward, let stick with cooler Digi WOW compared to the creepy WWOW. Yeah, I am sure you are confused in pronouncing the word. Just bear with it.
So what the awards is about? How much is the reward? How many awards are going to be given? How the awards winner are going to be decided? So much to know isn’t it? Digi WOW awards that is first time organized in 2011 is to celebrate bloggers or webmasters that contribute a lot of stuff within internet. This awards is good and should be an eye opener to the current Malaysian entertainment industry. Usually media only give attention to offline celebrities even though the online celebrities are actually the one who brought the offline celebrities by gossiping and providing related news via their blog.

PC.com is not a web dress but is a magazine name for new related to gadget and technology. The website for PC.com is completely different than their web address. I am not sure why they give the name to the magazine. Maybe to make it look cool and easy to remember. This magazine is not to be confuse with the PC.com website. Both of them are different. PC.com magazine is a Malaysian made product.
For the June 2011 edition, the PC.com has two cover pages. The first cover page shows Canon Pixma printer. I am sure Canon is the premium advertiser for the month thus they need special exposure. Sincerely, I believe that the exposure is just too much. Since this is not a gadget blog, I am not going to discussed about the printer.
Okay, now we turn the first cover page and there is another cover page. The cover page is dull. If I only see the cover page without checking the content, I doubt I am going to buy it. The cover page does not show anything related to gadget and technology.
What is in the PC.com June 2011

Some company lock their mobile phone so that the mobile phone only works with certain network provider. This may be due to the contract between the mobile phone company and the mobile phone provider. Since the mobile phone is locked, it is impossible to use another SIM card from other network provider in the lock mobile phone. Usually when you use SIM card from different network provider, the mobile phone will ask you for the unlock code. To get the unlock code you can try to call the mobile phone company. If luck is on your side, they will give it to you for free. If luck is not yours, then you can try to pay certain amount for unlocking service.
If you do not want to spend money on unlocking service, these sites might help you in obtaining the unlock code. To get the unlock code these application, you must at least know the IMEI code of your mobile phone. Since there are dozens of different type of phones within the same brand, some of the application might work on some phones and not on others.

iPhone users can now relieved from paying phone bills for local call and even global call. Yes, this is true if the iPhone user follow these conditions. Firstly they need to download Viber application and setup an account at Viber. Secondly you must have internet connection or wireless connection. Last, the free call is only available between iPhone users. If you always spend lots of money to call your family and someone special, take this opportunity to give them an iPhone as a gift. This is actually two in one benefit. You can make someone special happy and at the same you just reduce your monthly phone bills.
So how does Viber works? How can you get free phone calls? Actually Viber is based on VoIP (Voice Over Internet Protocol) just like when you make call using Skype. That means data is transferred through internet instead of using phone carrier. That’s how you manage to avoid the phone charge by the carrier. However you need to make sure the internet connection is acceptable to have a comfortable phone call experience.
Viber is an iPhone application (Android and Blackberry versions coming soon!) that lets you make free phone calls to other iPhone users that have Viber installed.
When you use Viber, your phone calls to any other Viber user are free, and the sound quality is much better than a regular call. You can call any Viber user, anywhere in the world, for free. All Viber features are 100% FREE and do not require any additional "in application" purchase.Free phone call for iPhone user by using Viber

Special Offer: Get affordable RM25 per month Celcom or Maxis Broadband SKMM. First month free but still can enjoy unlimited internet usage.
Digi Prepaid Internet users have grown up since it first start. The price and features of the prepaid internet is so good for a normal internet user. Do not want to lose to Digi, now Celcom has taken the initiative to release their version of prepaid internet called Instanet. Instanet is still new and I haven try it yet thus I cannot give any practical results on Instanet.
If you do not have any broadband or prepaid internet yet, you can buy Instanet at Celcom Blue Cube or Celcom authorized dealers. Instanet comes with three plans that is:
- Instanet Daily – RM 5 per day (500 MB usage quota)
- Instanet Weekly – RM 18 per week (1GB usage quota)
- Instanet Monthly – RM 50 per month (1.5GB usage quota)
For the three packages, all of them have up to 512 kbps download speed. Since the download for three of them is similar, that is not of our concern in choosing the best package for Instanet. If you really want to use Instanet, usage quota and the monthly price is the one that you should check. Let say that you use Instanet Daily for the whole month, that will make RM 130 and you will get 2GB monthly quota. If you use the Instanet weekly for the whole month, that will make RM 72 but you will get 4 GB usage quota for the whole month. Compared to Instanet Monthly, you can have better usage quota using Instanet Weekly for a month. However you still need to compensate for the additional RM22. So you do you think it’s worth? That’s up to you.
