tentang The Bigger Nintendo DSi

the new DSi, a way bigger model, with larger screen and more mature look, will be available in australia starting April 15th 2010.

however, the bigger screen does not mean better resolution. it will still be the same res with the small DSi. which means the display will look a little pixelated. which is not cool.

the DSI XL (or LL in Japan) is actually bigger than the PSP Slim&Lite. but the screen is not. DSi XL has a 4.2" screen compared to PSP's 4.3". not too much difference huh?

here's a rough console size comparison i made -

roughly, the DSi XL is taller but a little shorter in width. it is definately thicker. but hey this is just a rough comparison. i dont even have the two consoles with me to compare. sometimes things could be small but feels bulky and vice versa

so yeah.. sony's PSP evolves to become smaller and more compact.. but the DSi is getting bigger. i think i still like the PSP better. not that the DSi isn't cool, but yeah.. PSP is just better.. to me at least

tentang The Old Playlist

in my box of treasures (little box where i keep personal stuff of value) there is this hard drive remnants of my pc i used when i was in uni. it is like a backup HDD and every now and then i would plug it in and see what's in there.

and i found my old mp3 collection. the song i used to listen to.. i would say around 2000-2007 era maybe.

it is interesting reflecting and looking back and at the kind of person i was then through my playlist. funny when i find those what-kind-of-person-you-are-based-on-your-playlist memes are rediculous, but the moment i realized and listened to the songs again, i now get what those memes mean.

what's in my playlist back then?
about 20 J-Drama and anime OST, Indonesian rock band s full albums, Malaysian rock bands (Indie and Mainstream) and a lot of English rock & alternative songs. Third Eye Blind, Aerosmith, Alter Bridge, Ash, Avril Lavigne (:P), Butterfingers, Disagree, Evanescence, Foo Fighters, Gn'R, Linkin Park, Incubus, The Offsprings, Greenday, RHCP!!! theres more but meh.. not too excited about them :D

my playlist makes me sound like i have a lot of anger in me when i was younger eh? would everyone still remember what bands they listened to 5 years ago?

tentang New Facebook Look

i am sure many would have realized how different facebook looks by now. not all changes are for the better but think this is one of the good ones.

facebook now have a brand new layout. doesn't look that much different but certainly looks cleaner and more organized. not as lightweight as the facebook lite but not as cluttered as the previous version. all the menu at every corner of the page (all top, bottom, left and right) have been something i didnt like in the previous version. now there is one menu less and i welcome that change.. little as it may be.

what changed? generally they created a better dashboard and put applications and notifications there. and they added sort of a counter function to it. pretty neat.

read details about the update at the facebook Developers Blog

tentang PERTAMA a first love story

in bahasa with english subtitle. so go on.. press play

a short by
Halimi Hassan

i like it. drama, may be not my favourite genre but it is worth the watch. awesome feel and i think the pacing is excellent. technical, superb. Urban Tribe Production could be a huge name in the future who knows, they show massive potential.

on the negative side, the talents could've done a better job but good young talents are not easy to find.

your thoughts?
