Back At Last

God its good to be back after several months of not posting nothing in my blog. Well to tell you the truth I have been kinda busy with my personal life most of the time I have been gone and I didn’t have time to post.

I have seen a lot of things running around the net lately. By the way one of the most interesting news is that whats happening to out internet right now. I have read articles concerning that another fault from the cables under the sea bed of Japan which was caused by an earthquake has caused internet slow downs through 14 countries in Asia, which started yesterday morning August 12, 2009. Some of the ISP which were affected are Bayantel and PLDT. And as expected all the trouble will be fixed maybe by August 20, 2009.

PSP Go From Sony

Well, imagine a smaller PSP-3000 where you slide the top portion up to reveal the D-Pad, Select button, Start button, and traditional face buttons. The screen is going to be 3.8 inches, the unit is 44 percent lighter than the PSP-3000, there’s no UMD drive, there’s a Memory Stick micro slot, it’s Bluetooth compatible so that you can use a headset and link it to your cell phone, and the unit packs 16 gigabytes of flash memory.

New DSI Coming Up!

DSI
White and Black Version of DSI

Only two days more to go and the new DSI will already be released in the US this coming Sunday April 5. While it was already released in Europe last Friday.¬† This multi-purpose gadget will not only be for games anymore, but will be used like a entertainment device as well. It has been mounted with two cameras (one at the back and front). And of course it is mounted with a microphone (why don’t they make it into a phone that would make things better). The DSI will be sold for $170 per piece.

The DSI was first sold in Japan and was mentioned in my previous post, which sold from a hundred thousand units before to almost 2 million units now.

Nintendo again competes with technology against its old foe Sony PSP, and with a new rival emerging the Apple iPhone. Handheld gaming is really pushing technolgy to its edges this days.

PLDT myDSL — DNS problem?

I am currently having connection issues to other websites since yesterday morning. Websites load slow or don’t even load at all. I think they (PLDT) are having problems with their DNS servers that only websites like Yahoo, their own websites load fast. Some sites as well load¬† but take time, just like WordPress here, and friendster. Downloads are also up and i am not having problems with it.

I have already emailed/called them about the issue and currently waiting for good answers.

It just sucks to not able to browse you favorite websites.

Spy Network = Cyber Wars

hacks I have read some news today, and its all about hacking. There have been a lot of hacking incidents lately throughout the world and its getting bigger and bigger.

An electronic spy network has been set up in China and it was called GhostNet. It had infiltrated around 1300 computers in 100 countries. Most of the hacked computers were owners of ministries and embasies. The biggest hit was linked through the Tibetan spiritual leader, Dalai Lama.

Researchers also found that ministries of foreign affairs of Iran, Bangladesh, Latvia, Indonesia, Philippines, Brunei, Barbados and Bhutan appear to had been targeted. Hacked systems were also discovered in the embassies of countries including India, South Korea, Indonesia, Romania, Cyprus, Thailand, Germany and Pakistan.

Analysts say the attacks are in effect industrial espionage, with hackers showing an interest in the activities of lawmakers and major companies.

They say they believe the system, which they called GhostNet, was focused on governments in Asia. By installing malware on compromised computers, hackers were able to take control of them to send and receive classified data.

There is no conclusive evidence China’s government was behind it, researchers say. Beijing also denied involvement.
