I was SO EXCITED when I saw Kindle is finally going GLOBAL (100 nations!) from Amazon this morning!!!
But when I checked further, Kindle is NOT - I repeat, NOT - ready for Malaysia. What a blow!
Then I quickly checked if my neighboring countries are having better "luck"... Singapore, no... Thailand, no.... Brunei, no.... Indonesia, no.... Sigh, so I guess SEA isn't exactly a big enough market for Amazon.
Then for the fun of it, I keyed in "Cambodia" - and I got the "SHOCK" of my life - Kindle is available for Cambodia! And so is Papua New Guinea....
Then I keyed in "Zimbabwe" - and BINGO! Kindle is available in Zimbabwe! And so is Rwanda!
Now, I am NOT implying Malaysians (or Singaporeans) are more "deserving" but something is definitely NOT right here!
I am gonna email Mr Bezos for sure.

My iPhone 3G was "drowned" accidentally almost 2 months back and it wasn't until last week that I got the replacement - a new iPhone 3GS.
I must say the new iPhone 3GS is indeed a much better phone than its predecessor . Three things I really like about the new iPhone: 1) Longer battery life, 2) Much snappier performance, 3) Better camera.
Everything just loads & runs so much faster/smoother - almost instantaneous. No more lagging in opening/running my OliveTree bible apps! (Or any other apps!)
Over the weekend, I decided to test the camera performance. And I must say it performed much better than I expected too. Granted, it is ONLY a 3.2 mega pixel cam, but the pictures are way better than its predecessor in terms of details, colors, contrast, grains...everything! (Btw, the video is good too.)
In fact, the quality was good enough that I purchased 2 photo apps (which I never did with my old iPhone). And I must say so far this USD0.99 cents FantasyLens has my vote as the funnest app!
Below is a sample :)
