Jom Skype!

Lowyat.NET : Malaysia’s Tech Enthusiast Resource Community – Malaysian can now SkypeOut using MOLePoints.

Skype and MOL Access Portal Berhad (MOL) today announced a collaboration that enables local Skype users to exchange their MOLePoints for Skype credits.

Previously Skype users could only pay for their credits using international credit cards, which for Malaysia is a problem as many of the internet payment gateways decline any locally issued credit cards due to high risk of fraud from this region.

However, due to this partnership, anyone can just drop by any of the 15,000 payment channels across the country to purchase MOLePoints e-vouchers. These include  any 7-Eleven stores, Pupular Bookstores, MOL CyberCafes, epay terminals and even most of the local banks’ internet banking sites.

Using the MOLePoints, one may exchange from a minimum of 5 Euros of Skype credits which comes up to around RM27-28 depending on the exchange rate set by MOL. The rate will be adjusted on a monthly basis which is presumed to be based on the current FOREX.

Skype credits are used to make SkypeOut calls. SkypeOut is a service for making calls to any landlines or mobile phones any where in the world. Considering the low cost for making SkypeOut calls, 5 Euros will last for quite a while as calls rates to USA, UK and Australia for example start from just 0.017 Euros or RM0.07 per minute.

You can start exchanging your MOLePoints for Skype credit starting from today. For more information, please visit www.mol.com/skype.

Now Malaysian can used the SkypeOut service using MOLePoints.

MySpace shrinks as Facebook, Twitter and Bebo grab its users.

MARCH 30 – The “Place for Friends” is starting to feel lonely. MySpace, the Rupert Murdoch-owned website once synonymous with social networking, is losing popularity and key staff in its biggest troubles since launching five years ago.

Latest figures show that Murdoch is being beaten in the fight for social networks. MySpace suffered a drop in visitor traffic last month and is now less than half the size of its younger rival, Facebook. Three executives recently quit the one-time darling of the Internet and there is speculation its co-founders will follow.

MySpace’s loss of status as the cool place to be is an object lesson in the notoriously fickle Internet, where today’s cultural icon is tomorrow’s passing fad.

Will ever MySpace make a “comeback” and take over the top?

We’ll see about that.

It a good competition anyway.

Let the best man wins.

series of unfortunate events

ps.: speed up to time 1:10 where it all
happened.

ouch! that gotta hurt!
got this video from Oh! Artis.
although this was last year, this will sure left a deep “scar” for this tv3’s gangstarz contestant, lya (south trio) for a long time when she fell down a 10 feet stage platform in front of live audience and live tv telecast.

adding some more mishaps to the catastrophe night for her was her group; south trio was also eliminated that same night.

yeah, talk about a series of unfortunate events.

Cut And Paste

Budaya ‘Cut And Paste’ Punca Kemerosotan Kualiti Penyelidikan Pelajar IPTA

KOTA KINABALU, 23 Mac (Bernama) — Budaya mengambil maklumat daripada internet atau lebih dikenali sebagai ‘cut and paste‘ merupakan antara punca kemerosotan kualiti penyelidikan di kalangan pelajar institusi pengajian tinggi awam (IPTA) di negara ini, kata Ketua Pengarah Jabatan Pengajian Tinggi Datuk Dr Radin Umar Radin Sohadi.

Beliau berkata penggunaan komputer dan internet untuk mendapatkan maklumat yang diperlukan telah mencetuskan budaya kerja “cut and paste” dan sehingga mengabaikan proses penyelidikan untuk maju ke hadapan.

“Walaupun kemudahan komputer dan internet menjadi alat pembelajaran terpenting pada hari ini, namun pelajar IPTA tidak seharusnya membudayakan amalan ini kerana ia tidak menggambarkan ciri-ciri kesarjanaan graduan yang berkualiti dan berwibawa.

“Graduan sepatutnya mempunyai kebolehan yang menyeluruh dan tidak semata-mata bergantung kepada ICT,” katanya ketika berucap pada majlis perasmian 1 Megalab, di Perpustakaan Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS), Likas dekat sini hari ini.
