It's a Robin Hood people

Lately there's quite a few number of extraordinary human beings hitting the headlines. But , not as crazy as this dude here by the name of George Hotz ( nicknamed : GeoHot )

Yes he looked nerd , but judging by the outlook of his , we could never relate him to the hacking of apple's and sony's product. He even has his own Wiki page already.

At the mere age of 17 , he cracked the codes from iphone with a reason of his iphone doesn't support T-Mobile telco. As everyone knows, the authorized dealer in US is AT&T , if ur network service provider isn't AT&T , u basically can't dial with ur Iphone . In 500 hours time , he managed to hack an apple product . READ: not Microsoft but Apple . http://iphonejtag.blogspot.com/

Last week , he officially announced on his blog http://geohotps3.blogspot.com/ , that he has successfully cracked the codes for PS3 , in conjunction with gaining control of PS3's system , which is normally being known as HACKED.

People asked why isn't he being caught for products hacking ?
Unfortunately for Apple and Sony , george knows best, he is lurking around the law's border.
It's like " Bro, i bought your product which make the product officially mine, i destroy it and installed my own stuff in it , and there's nothing to do with piracy and all ."

He then released the exploit upon iPhone and PS3 to the public. He DEFINITELY knows that the hacking will only related back to piracy , and he's only letting the hackers community to do the dirty little jobs.

The hacking of iPhone did NOT affect the downfall of Apple's share. Infact , it boosts the Apple's stock sky rocket high in one night . Apple was taking benefit from both ends, AT&T's loyalty and iPhone' s crazy sale . It was reportedly told that a total of 500 000 units was sold in US after George exposed the exploit. So , why sue George? LOL

In another week , hackers from around the globe made "good" use of George's codes and security exploit. Hackers community officially released their own "hacking made easy to public" , aka JailBreak. After u do a jailbreak , u can install every single paid app that the itunes has for FREE.

Now, tell me people , what the fuck in the world is better than FREE?

We turn to PS3 now , although George exposed the exploit , i think there's more work to be done. From the reports i've read, the situation is like " George finally walk past the heavy security outside the bank , but has yet to break the vault " . Anyway , this exploit has made Sony shitting in their pants already .

The moment he exposed the exploit , hackers around the globe will pick up where he left off and continue breaking the hypervisor . I am sure this is well meant for Piracy . Which is illegal but a good thing for us in general . Piracy will led to price inflation for BluRay disc, and we would get a copy of 25GB disc for rm 20 - 25 soon. Now , 3rd world country loves piracy , it's like we embrace them .

Are u gonna buy a BluRay movie for RM 60 bucks or RM 20 ?

Again hackers aren't all bad , they are like virtual Robin Hood, making life easier for the poor.
I know people will go with " FUCK , can't watch or play original copies , Don't fucking buy it la ?! "
People like these are the ones i see in Gamer's Hideout . Rich brats with small tiny brains that make them feel proud of themselves by buying everything ori ( i am sure they still buy pirated dvds anyway ). Shu Hwai had once told me that , when the keepers in G.HideOut acknowledge that u've modded ur console for piracy , they will give u the cold stares and fucked up attitude. Why?Because they probably don't look up to u and brand u as a robber in disguise .

People like them , they will look down on people who owns pirated games and movies.
I mean , respect others' decision bros . It doesn't mean that i am poor and i don't have the rights to own a PS3 or Xbox 360 . RM 180 per game , i can buy myself lunch for a month . Is an ordinary CD that has 90% of the same contents as a pirated CD at the price range of rm10 -20.

However , One thing i have to say , if the products are good , We definitely have to support ORI . By buying it , we maintain the strong scene and keeping it alive

Alright that's it for now , call me a cheapskate but i still love cheap stuff or better, FREE!

For all the time we lay ourselves back in comfort while complaining about the most trivial things, hiccups in projects, office politics, relationship setbacks, personal issues and all,
but the fact is , we are all really lucky .

Keeping the Faith

Long abandoned blog like this should be revived ( since i am on a long vacation like the aussies )

Whenever there's a Liverpool match on the other end of the world , i would crawl myself up in the early shades of mist to watch the match . This time around it's never been the same , well basically it's because Liverpool no longer participates in the competition which starts between 3 am - 5 am. Anyhow the performance that Liverpool pulls off to convince our fans this season is a total dissapointment , well it may sound harsh but it is.

Speaking of the club's perfomances which is directed by Benitez and their players , has never been convincing since we beaten the Scums on our home soil. Maybe a "genius" like SAF isn't that smart after all , losing to a struggling team like us.

However , on another positive note with all these back to back defeats is :
No More Glory Hunting Dogs .
Those people that goes with " NO THROPIES IN YEARS??? DARK IS AGING! "
These fans are the one gave us the bad names ( well not really that much sucky fans isn't it Kops? ). No matter wat , with these fans , we can market our products further with promising sales of merchandise. That's how Scums got rich anyway.

U guys who knows football should recognize our Rafa. His unbelievable switches , the stubborness of his selection and the weird tactic cordination have left all of us scratching our heads.
However , the most unbelievable thing was, there's stil majority of 60% fans who still trust him . To be frank , after all these years watching football , i had never seen supporters that backs a super underfire manager that badly. Even Arsene Wenger was in a hell of misery when his both hands were empty back in the past 4 seasons . Sometimes the fans just couldn't understand the power of the media . How many times have we came up with a good big title of the day to " RAFA THE MAGICIAN ". If i recalled the last time was in Istanbul , and after that night the titles always goes with " LUCKY LIVERPOOL " . I wonder if people who reads the newspapers would know that the most luckiest team in the world would be the scums.

To me ? I guess i am quite used to defeats , it's just like a cliche thing that has been away for years , but just strikes back lately. If the sale of Torres could raise a 100 million and get the yanks out of the club, please go ahead. As i've mentioned over again and again , no one is bigger than the club , even if it's captain fantastic Gerrardo.

Well to those kopites who are in despair should look at these, which english club that has the details of each points i've stated above , when their club starts to go off the rail , u could see how many of em remains.

I know how our defeats will end up with conversation like this :

A : WA liverpool lose to reading , damn malu la .
B : Haih , yea man damn cha , same as man utd also la .
A : But we are champions of EPL for 3 years in a row .
B : Liverpool beat the fark out of u in Anfield .
A : So what , we got EPL , how long u nv win EPL ?
B : We got 5 European Cups , u got how many ?
A : We got TREBLE ma .
B : Your Treble got farking spider webs .
A : Your Euro cups got also .
B : We keep the 5 tropies in the cabinet , u wanna take a tour since u dun have ur own ?
A : So what? u got EPL anot ?
B : So u got 5 euro cups?
A : NO but we got the biggest club stadium in England .U got anot ?
B : .... ....
A : Even after Arsenal buy new stadium also lower capacity than us !
B : .... ....
A : Chelsea buy so many players also cannot win UCL . And we win them in UCL final.
B : .... ....

Normally the situation above will be started by A , they love to dig at others. When they have ntg to say , they will start with nonsensical rantings.

Just IGNORE the scums ,
Stop the complaining and start to maintain the FAITH . You know you'll never walk alone .

Whatever happens against Lyon

Remember that the man in charge is the one who's given us this:




And this


And this


Not to mention this


And of course this


Don't forget this


Or this




And of course this


To name but a few.

Respect the man who's redefined what a glorious European night is to Liverpool Football Club. Dont act like a spoiled brat if, just for once, the man fails to add to the memories which will stick to you for the rest of your life.

Whatever happens tomorrow night, one man is responsible for giving all of us some of the best moments of our footballing supporting lives. Never forget that or be ungrateful. Be there for him, if only to thank him.

Am i suppose to be relief that after this sem , is gonna be the final curtain call for my college life. Oh wait , there's masters to follow on . Speaking of years and years of education , this sem might as well be the 1st in long time that i have gave effort in to .
Also on the other hand , these modules that is installed for sem07 , is some money sucking subjects.
Even a God damn prototype using powder form has cost me a few hundreds or so. Pity those who paid 700 + for theirs too LOL.

U've noticed that it had been a farking long time since i last updated , maybe you should tell me why i isolated this blog cuz i dun even know why mannnnn.

Anyway , i've just slept this noon to wake up to some stupid shit i was put in . Call it lame or what, i dun even reckon the title that we shared are even labeled correctly . It's an overstatement perhaps. Avoid conflicts then i thought , i drop my weapon to fight for another day.

Liverpool are in danger . When every supporter asked for Rafa's head after a terrible run of shitty results. I mean come on , we are not sacking him it's nor mainly because we can't afford the 20million pay up .It's certainly because, i finally knew how the job at liverpool is only suitable for Rafa . Please let me enlight u with this post .

Rafa's signing and a close look at the money.

In order to try and dispell a few media fuelled myths that sections of our fanbase seem to have swollowed; here's the full list of players he's signed since he's been at the club (please read the summary below):

Total Players Bought: £228,976,000
Total Players Sold: £145,100,000

Total Net Spend: £83,876,000

So, that’s a total spend of just over £83m in 5 years at the club. An average of £16.6m a year.

The vast majority of his signings have been sold at profit, or if still at the club, are worth a lot more than we paid for them. Exceptions being Babel and Dossena, but we’ll still get decent fees for them when sold as they’re full internationals.

A lot of the signings above have been stepping stones in rebuilding the squad, gradually improving it by replacing players with better ones. Our league positions over the past 5 years and the improvement in our league positions and points totals show the progression.

2004/05: Finished 5th – 58 pts
2005/06: Finished 3rd – 82 pts
2006/07: Finished 3rd – 68 pts
2007/08: Finished 4th – 76 pts
2008/09: Finished 2nd – 86 pts

Is it any coincidence that the progression seems to have stopped this summer? Look at the transfer activity above for this year and it might explain why.

We have a wage bill that is the 5th highest in the league. We can’t afford to pay players £70,000 to be sat on the bench like United and Chelsea can.

Rafa Benitez’ record with signings at the top end of the market is nothing short of brilliant. Robbie Keane being the only flop, but he was sold 6 months later and only a small financial hit taken on that mistake. Rick Parry agreed the fee for buying him in the first place, and common knowledge Rafa wasn’t happy with it; feeling it was far too high.

Where has this myth come from that he’s wasted money on shite players? Have a look through the lists above and try to point them out. There isn’t many.

The ones that haven’t worked out he’s moved on, and not very often has he made a financial loss on them.

The squad is now worth a hell of a lot more than the one he inherited, and that £83m net spend over 5 years is easily offset by the increased value of the squad. He’d recoup nearly all of that through the sale of Torres alone!

He’s worked absolute wonders with the money he’s had to spend. Then take into account the massive amounts of money he’s self generated by reaching the latter stages of the CL every season. Two final appearances, one win. That £83m he’s spent he’s earned the right to spend.

And when comparing it to what United have spent in the same period is flawed, as they already had a title winning squad and all the foundations in place. They weren’t rebuilding from scratch like we were. It also doesn’t take into account their massive wage bill.

When comparing to Chelsea, they spent all their money before Rafa came to the club and just topping up an already established squad.

Man City have spent more than double in the past 12 months than Rafa Benitez has in his 5 year reign.

Do some people still want to get rid of him? If so, you’ve been listening to Martin Tyler's Monkey and the hairy-handed halfwit for too much and unable to look at the facts yourself to form an opinion.

Every manager makes tactical mistakes. Every manager makes mistakes in the transfer market. Despite what the press seem to think; Rafael Benitez appears to make less mistakes than most.

We’re expected to win the league and European Cup on a budget and wage bill that is entitled to finish 4th or 5th in the league. We’ve been overachieving under Rafael Benitez, not underachieving.

I’m not even going to mention the environment he’s working in under them two clowns.

You’ll only miss him when he’s gone….

Oh yea for those idiotic cibais, who goes on and off with Arsenal and Man U . Please stfu. It only makes u looked awfull.

Reds till i die.

Lotus Incident

Had a drink at Lotus just now with my futsal pals.
Being the regular customers there, i ain't going to get myself in hot water with the waiters there.
The rule number one when u dine in a restaurant, NEVER EVER screw the waiters.
Why not?
If the waiter is being vengeful , u'll find some extra ingredients in ur food / drinks you order.

Shu Hwai has his own go on another hand.
When he saw a fly floating happily in his 3 layer tea, his reaction was so big that he actually flicked the fly together with the ice out of his drink.

The most heroic part of all is ,
he complained to the boss of Lotus , the quote of the day :
" I am not seeking for refund, i just wanted you guys to get improved "
The best quote by SH. Wong in 2009 , give him a round of applause * clap clap clap *
The hero then packed his shining armour, slot his sword of wisdom in to his back, getting his pay of rm 2.50 back , drove us off in his Orange supercar/pumpkin car .

But i do hope the incident ends here,
because certainly , i hope there's no episode of LOTUS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN WAITER.

* Sorry no pics , because i am not starring in it *
