It still has good performance in gaming, it can play  the game such as Warcraft II,Star craft and Duke Nukem with a good fram rate. Moreover, since it os is base on Linux so someone try to install Ubuntu. There still have many weird news about N900 such as it can use PS3 controller and Wii controller to play a game on N900 or even running Mac OS on N900. Maybe those news is how Nokia promote N900. Anyway, N900 will launch in Thailand in March and the price would be around 23,000 baht. This N900 would be a new challenger for iphone or not we must have to wait and see.

Although the flow of the Nexus One or Android Phone in Thailand now is not very well known as the iPhone or BlackBerry is widely known in more than then. However, it is possible that future Android Phone calls will be used more widely used than this.

Today why I talk about “privacy” in this article because of internet world is change so fast. It never stop go beyond and development and become as innovation era. Then I wanna talk about privacy in social network as “FACEBOOK”

Reference the article from PANTIP .com they review how to keep our facebook’s privacy.

  1. Segment and separate people into group
    • Example Friend from Request, Friend from your Email, Friend from your phonebook and friend from suggestions. Moreover we can create new friend group and adds your friend into your group such as Hometown Friends, School Friends and etc.

  2. Adjust “NEWS FEED”
    • First of all separate friends into group and then when you wanna update your status or view other friend’s update it will show a symbol of master key then click it to select a group of people those can view your update and those you want see their update or feed such as Everyone, friend to friend, only friend and customize.

  3. Hide your information
    • Privacy Setting: you can adjust and customize what’s information you want everyone to see and what’s information that you don’t want to publish.

Finally I think that before sign or registration any online community we should find information and educate it before use. Because of internet world is every complicate and complex. All the danger turn to the internet world because it fast and mass then we cannot know where a danger come from. The better way to protect our privacy are don’t trust and be carefully

GT200 Nvidia

Recently in Thailand, there was an issue about GT200 a bomb finder tool that seem doesn’t work well. From the 20 times testing, it found the bomb 4 time only which make many people curious about its performance and want the army to stop use it before many soldier would be harmed by it. Even though, it has poor performance but its price is cost around 900,000 Baht. Furthermore, if we check the transaction record of GT200, every times they bought, the price was always different which make many people more curious about it. Therefore, a few days ago, the military officer was held a press conference about GT200, the idea of that press is to tell the public that GT200’s performance is effective and trustworthy.

They use the slide show to show the picture of GT200 circuit board to show how it works. This might look good, If the circuit board that they show wasn’t a circuit board of Nvidia GT200 Graphic card from Nvidia company one of the graphic card producer which very famous in the global !!. After the press ended, the picture from this press was post around the famous web board on internet such as Pantip and a few hours later the video clip version of this press was post on youtube also with an English subtitle. Everyone seems to have fun on this failure of Thai army. However, in the next day, none of this news appears on the media in Thailand except the web board on the internet. I guess the media were controlled again for this time. Well, the GT200 issue still becomes hot topic on the internet that everyone of us can only pray that when it would be stopped using. However, this time we learn that at least Thai army can use google too.

Note: if you search GT200 picture on google you will get the same picture that was shown in a slide which belong to Nvidia Graphic card

The Global Media Issues

Assignment: The Global Media Issues

Written by Benjawan A. 4917777 Section 402

Blackberry is the mobile device that was originally developed to be a tool for helping business people to be able to do a job all the time. It has function to instantly connect to Email and internet which can help business people a lot. Lately, they expand the target to general consumer and they developed an instant messaging for BB which is called BBM to penetrate the general consumer target. In Thailand, AIS is the first distributor, they use a celebrity marketing by giving BB to many celebrities in Thailand. When many consumers saw the celebrities use BB, so they started to use BB because the celebrities create this trend.

It prevailed to my culture because everyone around me started to use BB. It started to popular because BB create the strong social network which everyone in the network can stay connect together 24 hours. When one of my friends use it, they start to convince another. In conclusion, it become success because the BB user keep generate the word of mouth and always influence their friend to use BB.

I think BB quite affect my life, it make people have less face to face communication. For example, I was having lunch with my friend but both of them always chatting on BB which both of them was chatting together on BB. They said they was having a conference with other friends on BB so both of them have to chat on BB to stay connect with their friends.

I quite concern about BB, like I said it make people have less face to face communication but many of them seem to happy about chatting on BB. Nowadays, we can see many people chatting BB while walking ,crossing the road or even BB while they having a party at the pub. I think BB addicted is quite dangerous, it can distract people attention and make them more materialism, some kid who can’t afford BB by themselves ask for the money from their parent which I think it doesn’t right.

Terms of Use

Assignment: Term of Use

Written by Benjawan A. 4917777 Section 402

From Assignment that select the term of use of one digital/ online provider. I decide to talk about Hotmail service what they offer and what are their condition that I have to follow and is it harm and violent to my privacy.

According to the term of use of hotmail before using their service. Hotmail is the online service provider as a major webmail service. Anyone who really to be and use this service including me must agree an follow the term and police of service company and obey the country law and  regulation. If you won’t agree to do, you can’t use their service.

The key that I think that it is violent to my privacy are the security or privacy system that hotmail provide for me . It isn’t secure enough example; sometime you may got  mail or message from the contact that you didn’t before and it’s information that come with mail is harm and dirty we can called “Junk mail,Spam mail” I really wonder where those contact get my email or contact. How does the service provider kept my information and my privacy.

According to the term of use of hotmail about the “Privacy”

In order to operate and provide the service, we collect certain information about you. We use and protect that information as described in the Microsoft Online Privacy Statement, http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=74170.

It is both the negative and positive effect to my privacy. For the positive site that my information that I sign it can guarantee and confirm that who i am and all its information is the private.  But for the negative effect, if my information lose to other it may harm to me. Moreover how i trust the service provider that they didn’t open my information such as my mail or my message in webmail.

Form the privacy that made me surprise was I cannot sent and receive any mail even I am the owner of mail,  It look like my mail got a virus that I didn’t know where it came from.

When I sign up or registration to use their service or any website I never read all agreement or term of use before I check agree. Because of when I  really want sign up to use it service that mean I have to agree it before I use. And the service provide didn’t let me use their service if i didn’t agree with their commitment or term.
