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

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

Know more about your Mighty Mouse

Information technology changes so fast: probably every second, someone somewhere around the world has something new to offer, in terms of improving hardware or software. 

Even as I am about to post the following article on Hidden Powers of Your Mouse, I am unable to try out the examples mentioned because I have yet to change its dry-cell batteries. For those who cannot follow in English, just imagine how impossible it is to keep up with the latest knowledge.

Before we could digest all the apps available in smartphones (I have yet to own one), Xero has come out with an accounting software for Android...

And to think not so long ago, people were advised not to bring their notebook along when on holiday. But the mobile phone is already almost indispensable. In future it is going to be difficult not to check how your business is doing when you are supposed to be relaxing.

But before you get excited over this capability, does your smartphone has what it takes? My friend offers the following guideline:

"Available FREE on Android and iPhones, this small accounting app should be interesting to most accountants, businessmen, or professional with expenses accounts and basic banking accounts.  Watch the video to get some ideas of what it can do.

My advice to such people who intends to bring the desktop powers to smartphones, is to get a new smartphone with plenty of power and resources - namely 1GB memory RAM minimum, a fast processor with a powerful battery (2000mAH min), a big display (4.7" minimum) and an expansion slot for microSD card so that you can swipe out your card for more backup storage. (Of course there is still the clouds service, but then it's open).

I'll go for 2GB RAM cuz as OS improves and get more complicated and more functional, it'll need more and more memory RAM. Compare to a 64KB memory RAM (YES, 64K, NOT 64G) for the 1st early multitasking OS in the '70s/'80s (RT-11, CPM, DOS) compared with current latest PC / smartphones (Win7, Win8 with 4GB RAM minimum to be sufficiently smooth).

Thus my wait for this Dec to see which of the 5 Google Nexus's come with the best hardware specs."

Am I glad not having to keep up with the techy Joneses! At the moment, I only need to ensure my phone has enough talk time  (as in charging battery) and to top-up my pre-paid if and when necessary.
