404: Brain Not Found

Phew here am I again, blogging and talk shit. Hehe.

Since dont know when, my phone had *mysterious* shut itself down while its in my pocket. I never knew why until yesterday. Before this i thought it was a software problem or some weird apps that made that. But yesterday when i was in the bus, i discover that even in my hand i can recreate the mysterious problem, just by putting some force onto the middle part of the phone, and puff, its gone. Then i need to restart my phone again, and 2 minutes start up time *yawn*

Then today, my brain told me to go and repair my phone before the problem get worse. And since it is a hardware problem, and its under warranty, i need to send back to HTC. After some googling, and calling maxis care line ( & listening to 5++ minutes of rubbish song while waiting for some human to talk to me), i found that there is a HTC service center in Plaza Berjaya! Nais!
I can go there and service my phone, then go to BTS to watch KFP2.
I didnt plan this ahead. and dont know what voice go and tell me, go service your phone first only go watch movie and bla bla bla.
OK Loh, i went and pass my phone to them, everything is smooth until i walk out of the door.
One error pop up from my head…
Error 404: Brain Not Found

Oh my god, i need to use back the dunno what phone, nokia ah, got keypad and t9 de ah, got directional pad but only up and down but not left and right, torch light, BLACK PIXEL SCREEN OMG!!!
i feel so retro now

I pop in my sim card… and it prompt me to set the time. WHAAAATTT???? Whats the time now…. OMG im so lost… need to find some CLOCK!?! Luckily there is a clock on the GSC ticketing counter, i set the time. Then date, Hmmm…… i hardly can remember what day is today, and now it asked me date. So smart me, i go and look for GSC Kung Fu Panda 2’s poster. 26 May, it wont go wrong! Haha See, so smart is me.
I browsed the menu…..
Was looking for foursquare to check in, get glue to check into the movie (and hopefully get some stickers), tweet a bit and browse some web.
No smart phone = no brain.

This made me remember the latest XKCD comic, extended mind
xkcd extended mind
OMG so true. Me cannot wassapp my brother, need to SMS and share my feeling to him. I cannot read tweets and send tweets, i feel so foreveralone now… I cannot check in and stalk if any of my friends is nearby, so hand itchy… I cannot go to the Internet, my brain is not with me now…

Anyway, i manage to stay alive for that few hours, and do spend some quality time reading books. I think i should do more reading, since it is so fun.
And when i came back home *finally* and turn on my netbook,
22 emails in my inbox =..= (look like pig or not?)
Tomorrow and maybe for the next few days, no phone day. Have no idea when my phone will be fixed, and i miss listening to podcasts while in the commute/LRT.

OK lah, me wont die de… no worry.
Talk a bit about KFP2.
Kung Fu Panda 2 poster
Funny as always, stupid faces didnt failed to make me giggle, storyline is quite nice!
The only thing is…. (*no much spoiler lah*)
why is the village name called Gongmen? Gongmen city…
If you know chinese well enough, doesnt the word 肛门 cross your mind?
BTW the word in english means ASS HOLE!!!
Ass Hole city, WAH! SO HARDCORE!!!
This made me think why they still rate the movie as U but not 18SX LMAO!
Generally its a good movie, 3D is not bad too! Go watch it in the cinema, its worth the money!

Oh one more rant, my feel to 3D is neutral. Some 3D movie I love a lot, and some i just hate it. Not only the ticket is more expensive than the regular one, and the 3D “eye ware” make me super not comfortable. I found different cinema’s 3D eye ware is different. Some are very comfortable, and some make me want to stab myself in the face. The one that i dont like the most (along all the cinemas that i had went to and watched a 3D movie) is GSC Maxx. The eyeware itself is free size, but dont know is it my spectacle too big, my face too fat (or i am too fat) or dont know what problem. the eyeware simply wont fit. Plus the eyeware itself is quite heavy, wearing that on top of my spectacle make my nose can drop off. Haiz. What to do? 3D, dont know hate or love.

K thats all. sign off.



My Nexus S

If you read this post, I won a Nexus S from Maxis. YAY!!!
Had been playing with it for about a week plus and here is my little review for it.
Between my Nexus S and my HTC Desire Z, i decided to keep one for myself and will give one to my brother @mrtlchen (his blog). I heard you wondering which device will I give to my brother, and I think I heard quite a lot of you all guessing i will give him the Desire Z while keeping the new phone to myself. But I tell you, you are wrong.
I’m keeping the old desire z while he will get the new nexus s. I have a lots of love to the nexus s and if you continue read it, you will know why.

**psst, see, being my brother is so good, cos he got to play with my psp, ps3, and now he got an awesome phone! 😛 BTW, he did great free music. Check it out here. **

The Nexus S can easily be the sexiest gadget is had ever own, and it’s the nicest android phone that you can get at this moment. The piece of big black glass at the front,with a big 4″ screen, minimal button at the side of the phone, super slim black body all these are the sign of google’s minimalistic i guess.
On,when you flip the phone around,what you can see are the big camera lense, and the silver Google logo in the middle, and Samsung logo on the bottom,  super damn sexy fuyoh!
Owning a google phone feels very good. Vanilla android is the best experience you will ever find on an android phone.  The setup is dead simple, just sign in your google account and you are done. While the phone has everything essential you need,  Gmail app and Youtube app, plus thousands more via the android market. With the latest version of Android OS on phone installed, always get the update first, makes it becomes the perfect geek and developer’s phone.

But there are small small things here and there that I don’t like about the Nexus S and they all are included in the smaller one size but much more heavier Desire Z.

1. No Camera Button.
