    Surprisingly, your personal data isn't safe with Facebook

    Life, James Hein, Published on 10/10/2018

    » Facebook has been in the news recently having large numbers of public profiles harvested by marketing conglomerates. Estimates from this incident alone range from 50 to 90 million users and there may be a lot more. The "more" part comes from the user search and account recovery features that may have been abused to scrape up to 2 billion or more accounts. In other words, if you are on Facebook and have any kind of public profile someone has more info on you than you might like. The feature has since been turned off but not before a lot of information went to the marketers.

    Swing when you're winning

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 28/09/2018

    » When a tremendous amount of hype precedes the release of a game -- or anything, really -- people get nervous. Are expectations too high? Is all the excitement for nothing? So when Spider-Man was announced, I reminded myself to be cautious. It seemed that it was on the track though: Insomniac, developers of the game, recognised the responsibility they had (because they had the power, wink wink) to the character and to fans; the early footage of the game was amazing (another wink wink); and last month at the PlayStation Experience Southeast Asia, I was able to play the game for a good 15 minutes and left even more amped up for its release. But now that the game is out, does it live up to the hype? It most definitely does.

    A lot of money for fairly little phone, Apple

    Life, James Hein, Published on 26/09/2018

    » So, the news of the week, or at least as I write this, is the release of the new Apple iPhone range. There are three models ranging from the 5.8 and 6.1 inch models up to the XS Max at 6.5 inches. The latter is a real departure from the early days of Apple declaring that no one needed a large-screen phone. Compared to the latest phone specs across other brands, the features in the new iPhone range are not so special. They do all have very special prices and the bottom of the line starts at US$749 (Thai prices are TBA) and goes up from there topping out at $1449, which would make the whole range easily the most expensive phones per feature on the market today. For this you get no fingerprint reader, no headphone jack, average pixel density and cameras, no expansion memory port but dual SIMs, wireless charging and face detection. Even my most ardent Apple-lover friend will not be forking out their cash for those kinds of prices. I don't expect this range to sell anywhere near as well as earlier models. Seriously, what were they thinking?
