P1 W1MAX Laptops

Hey welcome,
So I've read about the launch of Malaysia's first WiMAX-ready 4G laptops by Intel Malaysia and Packet One Networks Malaysia (P1) and I think it is pretty cool. The aim of launching these laptops is to boost the use of broadband in Malaysia. I think that this is a good idea to reach the aim. 

The netbooks and notebooks are manufactured by Acer, Asus, Dell, Lenovo, MSI and Toshiba. With these WiMax-ready laptops users no longer need to be in a WiFi area to stay connected because Intel has added some cool new dual-mode module Intel Centrino Advanced-N+ WiMAX 6250 embedded chip that supports the P1 WiMAX network. Now this a cool feature for me because I do like to take the internet where ever I go and most of the broadband brand right now can't do. Well at least in Malaysia I mean. As an example Celcom Broadband cannot be used unless there are Celcom signal available. And as to the area where I live, I couldn't even get enough signal to log in to my Facebook. So it would be awesome to go anywhere and still get to surf the internet or at least log in to my Facebook and check my status update.

Currently Acer, Lenovo and MSI have listed one model each, while Asus, Dell and Toshiba will list their own models soon. More netbooks and notebooks are expected to be added to the list in the coming months.

Users who purchase the laptops can register for P1 WiMAX 1NSiDE Internet plan, which comes bundled in with the laptops, allowing for almost immediate activation.

Notebook users will get to surf the first six months for free, after which they will be charged RM49 a month. Meanwhile, netbook users get to surf for free up to Sept 30, after which they will also be charged RM49 per month.

RM49 is not a bad price to pay as long as I get to surf the web anywhere I want. I really think this is worth it and I'm thinking of getting one of these new laptops.

The Social Network or Facebook The Movie

So I've seen The Social Network trailer and I think it's going to be a real good movie. For you who doesn't know what it is about i'm going to explain to you what it is about. The Social Network is a story about the founders of Facebook which is a very popular social website directed by David Fincher.The film was written by Aaron Sorkin and adapted from Ben Mezrich's 2009 book The Accidental Billionaires: The Founding Of Facebook, A Tale of Sex, Money, Genius, and Betrayal. The film is distributed by Columbia Pictures and is set for an October 1, 2010 release. None of the Facebook staff, including founder Mark Zuckerberg, will be involved with the project. One of the co-founders, Eduardo Saverin, was a consultant for Mezrich's book.

The movie tells the story of what the founders of Facebook: Mark Zuckerberg played by Jesse Eisenberg and Eduardo Saverin played by Andrew Garfield went through to get Facebook up. They got a lot of hits when they just got Facebook up then they were sued and betrayed. I wanna tell more but I don't have the time right now. So I guess this is it

Oh and here is the trailer for the movie. Can't wait for the movie to release.
