Bliss and Boo of X10

Ok this is why everyone has a love-hate relationship with Sony Ericsson. First they teased with the Andriod 2.1 upgrade for X10 then you hear of news that the release date is delayed. Sounds familiar? Shudders to think that X10 will suffer the same fate as the big sister, X1. Oh well.

Only comfort – the beautiful folks at XDA are already having plenty of fun with cooking Android ROM for X1 (albeit upside down) and 2.1 ROM for those who cannot wait for the official release.

Do you have the proof, Mr H1N1 Vaccine?

I am not an early adopter. I love gadgets, destinations, books, and many other things as much as the fanatics do. However, I also procrastinate. I don’t buy into anything too early. They need to prove themselves first1.

Since the H1N1 outbreak, I have been taking special precautions whenever I travel. Despite the discomfort of surgical masks onboard the flights and the unflattering minty taste of hand sanitizer on my food, I have always refused to be vaccinated. People think I am paranoid. Well, at least I know Areya agrees with me.

Someone is offering a cash reward for anyone who can provide scientific proof that the vaccine does what it claims to do i.e. safe for all and effective in reducing death rate. The rules of validity and reliability of the research work are clearly outlined. In the spirit of supporting human triumph, I shall root for the promoters who are frantically trying to prove to the world. Can you do that in two months?

[Sidetrack] I believe I had caught the H1N1 virus in Beijing, back in October 2009. If you don’t believe me, please ask the Concierge. He can vouch for my pain and suffering from the worst flu I ever had. He was also very pleased when I checked-out of the hotel…

  1. Yes, I am sick this way []
