A1 GP doesn’t generate buzz as much as it older and bigger ‘sibling’ F1 GP. That’s why F1 race cost you hundreds, but A1 GP cost nothing. The feel, excitement, glamor might be not on par with F1, but expect the same experience watching this race.
No Felipe Massa or Lewis Hamilton, but there is Neel Jani of Sweeden, the reign champion, as well as local driver Alex Yoong and Fairuz Fauzy driving for Malaysia team. Hope they scored another podium this round!!
Why you must watch A1 GP? Why they’re different than F1?
Apart from the free tickets, all cars are identical, in term of chassis, engine and tyre. So the race is pretty much fair to all drivers, where to win the race, it depend much on their skill (and luck), rather than the the aerodynamic setup, engine and the durability of the car, which is the external factor.
I upload the ticket on Flickr, so grab it here. in case you with to be there. Print it out and redeem at Sepang race circuit on the race day
Barely 2.5 months in Beta, Picasa 3 is officially released. There are bunches of new features and enhancement in the new release. For a start, you’ll be amazed with how Picasa automatically assembled photos, images and other media in your local hard drive.
To lite photo editors like me, the enhancement of red eye fixes which took only 2 steps is extremely easy, as well photo editing to remove minor blemishes and distraction from the photos.
There are also more ways to organize photos now. You can create photo collages, create wall paper, make video slide shows, short movies, video presentations and etc.
Sharing the photos ias breeze. You can email, send to Youtube, or upload it to Picasaweb. There is alo ‘Sync’ function in which if enabled, will automatically sync photos in your computer to your Picasaweb account on the net seamlessly.
There is also screen capture function which save the screen shot automatically to your Picasa. Not that it can match to SnagIt, but it is better than to do it 2 steps in a traditional way (usual print screen).
More curious?? Head to picasa or watch video below for details.. Already familiar? Download it.
After Facebook translated to Bahasa Malaysia few weeks back, it is now Paypal’s turn to announce the same. This round, besides Bahasa Indonesia , it also translates to Thai and Traditional Chinese (for Taiwan) but not Bahasa Malaysia.
I spotted Malaysia flag on the page, but to my disappointment, this is not Bahasa Malaysia, but Bahasa Indonesia.
Would you understand what this sentence means at a glance? Well, I’ve to scroll down further before I know that fitur = feature @ ciri-ciri in Bahasa Malaysia. Not too bothering though.
It’s now common that, for any services/applications translated to Bahasa Malaysia, it will sound like Bahasa Indonesia. I’m not against that, it’s just that sometimes it is misleading non-Bahasa Malaysia spoken population, to believe that, Bahasa Indonesia & Bahasa Malaysia is exactly the same, even though they’re literally different.
Applaud the effort, but perhaps Paypal should be aware of the difference between Bahasa Indonesia & Bahasa Malaysia. Nonetheless, Bahasa Malaysia-spoken population can still understand sentences in Bahasa Indonesia and this is useful in that sense.
Indonesia has obviously larger population, which means larger internet users (considering Jakarta itself has over 22 millions population). This might be taken into consideration when Paypal decided to go with Bahasa Indonesia.
Besides, Malaysia is among the English-fluent country in this region. Personally, I’m more comfortable with English when I browse the net. It’s just sound weird when it’s translated.
