    Huawei still some way behind rivals

    Life, James Hein, Published on 21/11/2018

    » I've had some feedback expressing surprise that I invested in a smartwatch. Yes, I didn't think I'd see the day either, but it does function very well as a watch with changeable faces and at a price point that's far below some of the faces it can duplicate. The always-on test was a success in that I only turned the watch off when I wasn't using it on some evenings. It also does sleep tracking, which perhaps provides a sterner test, but it still provided a week's worth of use making it usable for many. On a longer trip you would need to take the charger along. Note that for both tests, I kept Bluetooth on the whole time.

    Building peace requires pragmatism and patience

    News, John Lloyd, Published on 24/09/2018

    » Doors are slamming all over the Western world; we shall not see them opened again in our life. This sentiment -- borrowing and adapting a remark attributed to British Foreign Secretary Sir Edward Grey on the eve of World War I (his phrase had lamps going out in Europe) -- seems to me at least as defensible as Grey's prophecy.

    A circular economy is key to tackling e-waste crisis

    Oped, Prom Vikitsreth, Published on 10/07/2018

    » One of the topics that has dominated the news cycle this month is the discovery of the gargantuan amount of illegally imported electronic waste (e-waste) stored at recycling plants across the country. To make that matter more dramatic, and somewhat more attention-grabbing, many of those plants were found to be owned by Chinese businessmen through the service of Thai “nominees”. With China deciding to ban all waste imports, questions were raised about whether Thailand would be one of the inevitable destinations for this waste.

    Get e-waste under control

    News, Editorial, Published on 25/06/2018

    » The fast-emerging scandal of the dumping of electronic waste illustrates just how far behind, and how out of touch authorities are in battling corruption. Of course the e-waste story involves flaunting of the law. But it shows just how simple it is to ignore laws, bypass regulations and fool government. The days of furtive corruption involving suitcases full of cash are gone. Some call the new-style corruption more sophisticated but it is actually more thuggish.

    » So, who has the best cloud? Gartner has been looking into that for you and the results are in. Amazon's Web Services and Microsoft Azure are the top two with a combination of maturity, ability to execute and a completeness of vision.

They also want stable availability, good security along with great performance. Of the eight vendors examined, IBM and Oracle finished at the bottom showing that just having a long history doesn't necessarily keep you near the top.

    'Stupid' locals label mocks Thai-ism aims

    News, Surasak Glahan, Published on 19/03/2018

    » How do you feel if the state says it wants to hear about your plight in order to offer you help, but still holds a view that you are too "stupid" to think for yourself and continues to strictly forbid you from expressing your grievances unless it approves of the platform where you have your say?
