YouTube minimizes Engrish, eBay pwns Google, SL steppin’~ Johnny Depp WTF?!

Thugged out Thursdays are my fave~

Tech Love

Engrish is all around us,  but we should allow for all Engrish users to not have to use Engrish but go for their native tongue. That’s why yesterday Flickr added 7 languages but today Youtube plans to expand its language base also! French and Mandarin are the languages expressed in the article so far…lookout for more…

eBay pwns the crap out of Google…the article says it all.

We have 2 new entries to Second Life today…and they are…Beverage maker Diageo and Japanese politician Kan Suzuki who hopes to get re-elected.

Like to think of yourself as a bit of a writer? Well here’s a way to get published for $19! I’ll probably give myself  around 6 months before I publish my  literature…LOL

The recent trend that has not just caught my attention but the wider audience (you guys) is the acquisition bug. Here’s an article that entails the recent and major acquisitions. Just quickly for those that love to skim read instead of clicking a link… eBay acquires Stumbleupon $75m, Google acquires Panoramio, CBS acquires Last.FM $280m and Fox acquires Photobucket and Flektor. (links all in the URL)

Australia…far away from everyone and everywhere…but still in the groove, or should I say ‘down with the 411’ LOL Here’s the top 60 web apps 2.0 in Australia. I was rather impressed and surprised at the list~

This issue has come up before, Youtube being banned in countries…here’s a list of countries + map that have banned Youtube…Victoria?? WTF?!

I covered Entropia in a previous post (link), but here’s some sweet news, Entropia’s coming to China! It says in the article also that Second Life was in the running but got pwned…lol I like the sound of Entropia better anyways…

Lifestyle Lessons

Now Guy Kawasaki’s blog –  is a blog I admire and always love to check out, here’s a great excerpt from his blog about the 9 biggest myths of the workplace. I hope you all enjoyed it as much as I did!

Being bullied? Know how to handle the bully by being in the know with the 411 (LOL sorry sorry sorry) I personally would take up kickboxing so you can pwn them like todays clip!

Paris vs Arnie online, I’m telling on u…online, Fake SL numbers? Youtube vs Thailand round 4!

Midweek madness approaches….

Let’s hope we survive the onslaught! This is madness! No…this is SPARTA!!! Sorry, a 300 moment….man i enjoyed that movie as opposed to emo spidey 3….

OK! so let’s get today rollin!

Tech Love

So the words on everyone’s lips is about Paris getting owned and now she wants Arnie’s help…I think this quote summarises my view:

‘The Hilton hotel heiress “provides hope for young people all over the US and the world. She provides beauty and excitement to (most of) our otherwise mundane lives’

I think not she basicaly has no beauty as a person and is hardly exciting as a freakin’ sea cucumber. I hope she gets noobd in Prison by someone equivalent in strength as Domo kun. Man that would be awesome.

I can already feel today is gonna be a gooood blog….ahhh

So you love being a wuss and hiding behind a keyboard? Well here’s the article you’ve been dreaming of! Basically this article goes through sites where people rat on people…over the net and whinge….wa wa wa kinda like what I am subconsciously doing now. There are 3 websites on there for whingers to unite so get whinging 2.0 style!

Now I had previously covered the Youtube vs Thailand gig (read this link to get in the know) but who would’ve thought it would get to round 4?!!! Here’s the article for round 4…youtube might be headed to court!! (surprise surprise…) This sounds like a royal pain in the arse to me…just let the people speak in Thailand I mean now that you’ve shut em down they’re gonna come back stronger.

Finally, an indepth look into the hyped up SL numbers.  Worth a read plus I found an awesome Second Life parody website…get a First life.com…awesome!

The last topic is basically a tech love and lifestyle tip in one so enjoy!

Today’s pics are dedicated to cool shirts….iPod and LMAO (laughing my ass off u noob!)

Address to global audience (re: Virginia Massacre), Second Life updates (COKE!), and iPhone delayed again!

Today’s a sad day for the world out there… before I write about some tech love, i’d appreciate it if you read this:

Another gunman in school incident that really brings about a lot of issues…

These are the basics of the tragedy:

– Lonely,  disturbed and frustrated student loses it and takes it out on the student body

– Guns were as usual…simply bought like any other grocery.

What has brought my attention is the media’s focus on:

– his ethnicity (it wasn’t an issue when there were other shootings eg Columbine, Dow, Greenville )

– The media’s negligence to focus less on Cho as an American permanent resident but more on his Korean ethnicity.

As a person in the same ethnicity/situation as an Australian, with Korean ethnicity, I ask this question.

I’m proud of being both Australian and Korean, yet when something goes wrong it would be the ethnicity that becomes my profiling…the country that declares me has in effect disowned me, yet if I were not of a minority would this occur?

I do not hold any contempt, anger towards anyone and wish that this tragedy had never occurred but it now brings about an issue wherein, how the general population will react.

Will there be another LA riot style follow up?  Where people that are just of the same ethnicity will feel hate like those of Islamic faith?

We as fellow human beings should look at ourselves before pointing the finger at others, and I believe the media and a nation has not taken responsibility by disowning a citizen of their nation. We aren’t all perfect, I have more than many flaws but it is my solemn wish that this stems not into a rally of hate and blame, but to the addressing of errors, such as the failure to address a student that was clearly ‘disturbed’, gun laws that are too loose, student harassment, security in schools.

This is my personal take on the tragedy and I give my deepest condolences to those affected in Virginia.

Ok…so changing the subject…(sorry about the heavy tone)

So following up on Kzero’s Nic Mitham’s Second Life brand map, cool tech website ZDnet has compiled an image gallery of brands in Second life.

Coca Cola has also entered Second Life with its ‘virtual thirst‘ promo where entrants can build and launch their own designed coke machine. Checkkit (spoken like Ali G, Borat‘s alter ego)

Also the iPhone has been delayed again as this article states that it may just have been pushed to June…reasons in the article!

Hope all are well and I hope that my ‘essay’ has not offended or deterred in any way…if so please let me know but as a parting note for today…Please comment your views, on tech too mind you!

I won’t be leaving any funny pictures today, (sorry Quissay!) in remembrance of the tragedy but I will leave you with 3 quotes.

“Always remember others may hate you but those who hate you don’t win unless you hate them. And then you destroy yourself.”

President Richard Nixon 

“The test of courage comes when we are in the minority. The test of tolerance comes when we are in the majority.”

Ralph W. Sockman 

The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.

Mohandas Gandhi

I dream of a strong, courageous and tolerant global populace that does not long to destroy itself.

Youtube hurting teachers, $100 laptop in Nigeria, Ladies wanna warn friends of who to stay away from? Here’s how LOL

GO TO MY NEW SITE!!!!!!!!!!! THIS SITE IS ABANDONED!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 

Today we’re being a little more serious with our issues.

Theres a trend these days with kiddies going a little too far in respect of them hating their teachers or just their lack of respect for their teachers. Sure there’s always that one teacher we always hated, but do you want to ruin their reputation? These kids say yes, here’s an example…totally lame and stupid even if it is a “joke”.

What’s your view?

This is humour. (Disclaimer: Swear words are frequent!)

All-age friendly humour. (awesome!)
The $100 laptop or OLPC is getting started and brought their laptops to a small school in Nigeria.

This is totally sweet and not only are the kids and adults both learning, it’s a kick ass laptop!

I hope this continues and I’ll definitely be supporting them! Here’s their main site.

Now for the random find and rant for today…

Here’s a site for the ladies, and for men to be aware of! A judge threw the case out by a dude who wanted to sue the site…Scary stuff if you’re a bad little boy. Instead of getting coals for christmas you get……pwnership by the female population!

So that’s the wrap for today!

Speaking of getting pwned or owned here’s 2 pics dedicated to pwnership

owned

crash
