How should we judge a government?

In Malaysia, if you don't watch television or read newspapers, you are uninformed; but if you do, you are misinformed!

"If you're not careful, the newspapers will have you hating the people who are being oppressed, and loving the people who are doing the oppressing." - Malcolm X

Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience - Mark Twain

Never argue with an idiot, otherwise people won't know which one of you is the idiot.
Since light travels faster than sound, some people appear bright - until you hear them speak.

Why we should be against censorship in a court of law: Publicity is the very soul of justice … it keeps the judge himself, while trying, under trial. - Jeremy Bentham

"Our government is like a baby's alimentary canal, with a happy appetite at one end and no
responsibility at the other. " - Ronald Reagan

If you're not going to speak up, how is the world supposed to know you exist? “Orang boleh pandai setinggi langit, tapi selama ia tidak menulis, ia akan hilang di dalam masyarakat dan dari sejarah.” - Ananta Prameodya Toer (Your intellect may soar to the sky but if you do not write, you will be lost from society and to history.)

Review: HTC One X...
http://www.wired.com/reviews/2012/05/htc-one-x/

For someone who does not have a smartphone, the latter device appears one up on others with the 3-D effect eg. icons on a cube or spiral, instead of the usual: from left to right or top to bottom and vice versa.

If you think I am way behind, your are right, but my regular breakfast 'kaki' can still survive without even a cell phone! Well, his wife could get him, if necessary, via ours. So, like being rich or poor, it is relative to who we are comparing with. Another 'kaki' who is less informed than me on IT (both do not use the computer) said his son in US thinks Blackberry is still best for professionals. So a lot depends on our requirements, though there are some people who bought things just to keep up with the Joneses. Such people probably use 1% of the phone's features. There is a man with a new Merc who could not even switch on the radio when asked by his passenger!
