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

Government fed by the people

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.)

JR Raphael: The danger of the smartphone utopia trap


"All right, Android fans, tell me if you've heard this before:

"I don't know. All these new phones look pretty cool, but I want to wait to see how the [insert name of rumored upcoming device here] compares."

As a guy who writes about mobile technology, I hear that all the time. And it got me thinking: The level of choice and diversity within Android -- and the never-ending release cycle that diversity creates -- has resulted in a highly contagious condition that's circulating among Android enthusiasts:
The smartphone utopia trap.

Think about it: How many people do you know who are constantly searching for the perfect phone? People who, despite their desire for a new device and the presence of an overwhelming number of desirable options, are always holding off -- always waiting for that mythical piece of perfection off in the distance to arrive?

There it is: the smartphone utopia trap. And now's the prime time for its symptoms to develop..."
