Group chat now available in Gmail chat


p/s: jom chat!


Posted by Sergey Solyanik, Software Engineer

The new Gmail Seattle team is happy to announce two additions to Gmail's built-in chat capabilities: group chat and enhanced emoticons.

To start a group chat, click "Group chat" from the "Options" menu when chatting. Enter the names of the people you want to add, and, bingo, you're in your very own chat room. All the familiar features such as chat archiving and taking the chat off the record still work as well.

You'll also now notice a smiley face in the bottom right-hand corner of your chat window. You can still use regular emoticon keyboard shortcuts, such as :) or =P, but this menu lets you select the style of the emoticons you send. Beyond the good old classic Gmail smileys there are two brand new, rich emoticon styles.

These features only work with the latest version of Gmail, which we are still rolling out to IE6, international and Google Apps users. We're looking forward to using Gmail's new modular architecture to bring you more features like these with faster turnaround.

Lennon - Where Do I Fit In (mp3+lyrics)



Verse:
Wake up every morning to the sound of the radio screaming
6:30, 7:30, 8 o'clock and I got to leave
Walk out on the street with nothing on except the shame of last night
And a number in my hand of a man I don't even know

Chorus:
Where do I fit in
Where is my place here
What do I need to say, what do you want to hear
Where do I fit in
If she's in your bed
Where is my beautiful

Verse:
Late night, long day, doesn't make much difference to me anyway
You called, I answered, but baby I'm only half awake
Hush little one with you here everything's going to be okay
Is all you say but what if things don't go that way

Chorus:

Verse:
It's over, we both know, we're both tired of playing the parts
I said goodbye, you said oh well nothing's really lost
Call every now and than just to hear your voice talk to me
You still say everything's alright but it's not and that's something you're too blind to see

Chorus:

Chorus:
Where do I fit in
Where is my place here
If there's nothing for me to say, there's nothing you want to hear
Where do I fit in
If she's in your bed
Where is my beautiful
Where do I fit in
If she's in your bed
Where is my beautiful

Kenapa ayam melintas? (pandangan tokoh terkemuka)



Samy Vellu:
Kita sude bikin banyak jembatan, itu ayam musti guna jembatan untuk melintasi itu jalan. Lagi pun kalu itu ayam mau pigi jalan-jalan, bagitau sama saya juga, saya bolley buat lebbey banyak toll... itu jambatan mesti ada tahan 100 tahun. Lain kali bole kasi tutup... kita boleh survey mana ada rosak.

Karam Singh Walia (TV3):
Seperti saudara dapat lihat, kelihatan ayam-ayam itu sedang melintas jalan. Mereka bukan sahaja melintas jalan, malah membuang najis di atas jalan dan ini adalah pencemaran yang paling dasyat di maya ini. Bapa-bapa dan ibu-ibu ayam haruslah mengambil inisiatif untuk melatih ayam-ayam agar menahan najis sewaktu melintas jalan. Seperti pepatah melayu berkata.. ayam di jalan di lintaskan; ayam di reban mati tak makan.

Wan Kamarudin (Edisi Siasat NTV7):
Apa kejadahnya ini semua, KL dah jadik reban ayam, mak bapak ayam asyik menganga saja. Ayam semua dah besar kepala...dan dah tak nak duduk reban... dan bertambah biadap dan buat perkara yg tak masuk dek akal!

Zainal Arifin Ismail (Misteri Nusantara TV3):
Ada saksi menyatakan yang mereka dapat melihat ayam-ayam ini melintasi jalan-jalan di kampong ini pada waktu malam. Ada yang menyatakan ayam-ayam ini merupakan penyamaran jin. Dan ada juga mengaitkan ia berkaitan dengan peristiwa silam di kampong ini. Apakah maksud tersirat ayam-ayam ini melintas jalan? Oleh itu saya akhiri, "Jangan biarkan hidup anda diselubungi... MISTERI"

Zainal Alam Kadir (Wayang Kita Astro):
"Ayam siapa kalau bukan ayam kita"

Abdul Fatah Haron (PAS Rantau Panjang):
Ayam-ayam yang melintas ini semua adalah kerana mereka ayam-ayam yang GATAL!

Md. Said Yusof (BN Jasin):
Apa salahnya... biarkan mereka melintas...tutup sebelah mata ajelah... ayam-ayam terlebih besar sikit sahaja. Lagi pun semuanya itu ayam saya.

Shahrir Abdil Samad (ex Pengerusi BBC):
Ini adalah prinsip saya. Ayam-ayam tak boleh dibenarkan melintas jalan. Kalau beginilah, maka ianya bertentangan dengan prinsip saya, maka saya RESIGN!!!

Bill Gates:
I have just released the new Chicken Office 2006, which will not only cross roads, but will lay eggs, file your important documents, and balance your checkbook. Microsoft will pledge a billion for research on chicken AIDS.

Dr M:
You know, I am tired of all this....'apa nama' chicken-chicken bisnes...you know that it is our right to build the bridge on our side of the straits.... So why are we Chicken out??

Pak Lah:
Ini semua adalah khabar angin sahaja... jangan percaya khabar-khabar angin ini semua... biasalah ini adalah taktik pembangkang untuk memecah belahkan perpaduan ayam-ayam semua... Jangan percaya... We've decided to scrap the scenic bridge for the best interest of the people... nothing to do with chicken. And of course others have the right to express their opinion... ini biasalah.

Tidur boleh, seks jangan!




Tidur boleh, seks jangan!:
KUALA LUMPUR: Lagak seperti perempuan jalang, namun mereka digelar ‘Minah ringan-ringan’ kerana hanya menawarkan perkhidmatan seperti menemani pelanggan bersuka ria dan menonton wayang.

Mereka juga boleh diajak tidur di hotel tapi dilarang melakukan hubungan seks.

Hubungan mesra bersyarat itu dikesan dilakukan segelintir pelajar kolej yang bersedia menjadi teman sosial kepada lelaki baru dikenali sama ada melalui rakan atau laman sembang.

Bagaimanapun, lelaki yang mahu melanggani mereka hanya dibenarkan melakukan tiga perkara iaitu memegang tangan, memeluk atau melakukan ciuman ringan tanpa membabitkan hubungan ranjang, termasuk seks oral.

Wartawan Harian Metro yang berjaya menjejaki seorang gadis terbabit, Fara, 22, mendakwa mula aktif sebagai teman sosial selepas secara tidak sengaja menemankan seorang rakan yang menceburi bidang itu sejak beberapa bulan lalu.

Usaha mendekati Fara mulanya menghadapi kesukaran berikutan dia curiga bagaimana penulis memperoleh nombor telefon bimbitnya dan banyak bertanya berkaitan latar belakangnya.

Dia yang dipujuk berulang kali akhirnya bersetuju dibawa keluar dengan menetapkan beberapa syarat, antaranya hanya boleh membawanya keluar antara jam 8 malam hingga 8 pagi esoknya.

Selain itu, penulis perlu memastikan hotel yang diduduki selamat dan bukan hotel murahan atau rumah tumpangan kerana bimbang dicekup pihak berkuasa.

Fara menetapkan perkhidmatannya RM100 selain memberi amaran jangan cuba-cuba melakukan hubungan seks kecuali adegan ringan-ringan.

Ditanya kenapa dia sanggup keluar atau tidur dengan lelaki tetapi tidak membenarkan hubungan seks, Fara sekadar memberi jawapan dia belum bersedia untuk ‘itu’ dan hanya mahu menjadi teman berbual kepada lelaki yang kesunyian.

Fara bersetuju berjumpa di sebuah lobi hotel di Jalan Sultan Ismail sebelum diajak menjamu selera sebelum dibawa masuk ke bilik hotel.

Dia yang berseluar jeans dan kemeja-T dengan potongan badan menarik mudah diajak berbual tanpa rasa kekok walaupun kali pertama berjumpa.

“Saya bukan bohsia atau pelacur! Saya cuma tawarkan khidmat menemankan lelaki kebosanan dan inginkan rakan berbual,” katanya sambil menyedut rokok.

Menurutnya, dia boleh berlagak seperti kekasih, malah ada antara pelanggan hanya menggunakan khidmatnya untuk ‘menunjuk-nunjuk’ di hadapan rakan sekerja kononnya mereka mempunyai teman wanita cantik.

“Ada yang kata saya sama seperti perempuan pengiring tapi saya bukan pelacur. Biasanya pelanggan cuma mahukan teman berbual kerana kesunyian.

“Duit yang mereka beri jarang dianggap macam duit perkhidmatan, sebaliknya lebih kepada duit makan atau tambang teksi pulang saja,” katanya sambil membancuh kopi yang disediakan di bilik hotel.

Penulis seterusnya bertanya sama ada dia pernah melakukan hubungan seks dengan pelanggan di hotel, namun Fara segera menepis andaian itu.

“Saya masih suci. Setakat kiss (cium) biasa atau peluk saya tak kisah...tapi tak boleh buat ‘love bite’ (gigitan cinta)...takut nanti family (keluarga) tahu...nahas!”

Disoal sama ada dia bimbang jika ada lelaki yang ditemani tidur bertindak ganas atau cuba memperkosanya, Fara memberitahu, dia tidak teragak-agak melawan atau menjerit.

“Pernah satu ketika saya menendang seorang lelaki yang mahu membuka zip jeans saya sebelum saya terus berlari keluar dari bilik hotel. Saya sudah biasa dengan pujuk rayu lelaki dan ‘kebal’ dengan godaan.

“Malah, kebanyakan lelaki akan berhenti selepas saya mengugut untuk membuat laporan polis dirogol jika ada yang mahu meneruskan niat terbabit,” katanya sambil tidak henti-henti menghisap rokok.

Dia turut menolak jika diminta membuat onani atau seks oral walaupun ditawarkan bayaran lumayan.

“Saya tak mahu jadi perempuan simpanan...cukup keluar suka-suka. No commitment! Saya sudah ada pelanggan tetap yang boleh dipercayai,” katanya yang menganggap lelaki sekarang mempunyai banyak pilihan dan cita rasa.

Dakwanya, pelanggannya bukan mengejar seks tetapi cuma mahu teman wanita berbual dan keluar bersantai.

Lebih menarik sepanjang perbualan itu, Fara nampak jauh lebih matang berbanding usianya dan mampu memberi pendapat bernas dalam pelbagai isu sama ada membabitkan dunia hiburan, kerjaya, sukan hingga kepada model kereta terkini di pasaran.

Ini terbukti apabila dia mendakwa amat meminati lakonan Jessica Biel dalam filem I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry yang dianggapnya mempunyai daya tarikan seksual kepada lelaki selain Simon Cowell juri American Idol’s.

Dia tidak kekok bercakap mengenai kereta kegemarannya seperti Honda Civic Hybrid yang boleh menggunakan petrol atau bekalan elektrik selain bercerita mengenai kereta mewah model Audi Q7 atau BMW X5 yang berharga lebih setengah juta ringgit.

Selepas berbual lebih dua jam, penulis yakin kepetahan serta pengetahuan dimiliki gadis seperti Fara menjadi kelebihan serta daya tarikan utama kepada lelaki untuk mendampingi mereka.

Seorang lagi rakan Fara dikenali sebagai Sofea, 20-an yang dihubungi mengaku ada antara lelaki dikenali lebih gemar mengisi masa lapang atau berbual di bilik hotel sambil menonton televisyen.

Menurutnya, lelaki seperti itu hanya mahukan pelukan manja sepanjang malam selain mencurahkan isi hati serta masalah dihadapi.

“Untuk itu, kami tidak hanya perlu mempunyai penampilan menarik, malah bijak membelai jiwa lelaki seperti memicit bahu atau kepala mereka untuk ketenangan,” katanya.

Untuk kelihatan menarik, dia mengutamakan penampilan diri dengan memilih kosmetik berjenama seperti Clinique atau Lancome selain wangian Christian Dior.

Kerajaan tarik balik spektrum 2.5, 3.5 GHz



PETALING JAYA 19 Nov. – Kerajaan akan menarik balik spektrum 2.5 dan 3.5 gigahertz (GHz), yang pada mulanya diberikan kepada syarikat-syarikat telekomunikasi secara percubaan, kata Menteri Tenaga, Air dan Komunikasi, Datuk Seri Dr. Lim Keng Yaik hari ini.

Beliau berkata, ini adalah berikutan keputusan kerajaan dua bulan lepas untuk memberikan tumpuan kepada akses keupayaan saling mengendali bagi gelombang mikro seluruh dunia (WiMax), generasi ketiga (3G) dan jalur lebar gentian ke rumah berkelajuan tinggi sebagai platform untuk mempertingkatkan perkembangan jalur lebar di negara ini.

"Saya sudahpun mengarahkan Suruhanjaya Komunikasi dan Multimedia (MCMC) untuk memberikan notis kepada syarikat-syarikat telekomunikasi membubarkan perniagaan itu.

"Perkhidmatan tanpa pelanggan akan ditarik balik serta merta manakala yang mempunyai pelanggan akan diberikan tempoh lima tahun untuk membubarkan perniagaan di bawah peraturan MCMC," katanya kepada pemberita selepas merasmikan Simposium Antarabangsa mengenai Teknologi Maklumat dan Komunikasi 2007 anjuran Universiti Multimedia di sini hari ini.

Dr. Lim berkata, MCMC telah mengeluarkan spektrum 2.5 GHz bagi jalur lebar tanpa wayar manakala spektrum 3.5 GHz adalah bagi frekuensi pautan ke bawah satelit.

Beliau berkata, spektrum 2.5 telah ditarik balik kerana kebanyakan syarikat yang diberikan frekuensi itu belum melancarkan perkhidmatan masing-masing manakala spektrum 3.5 GHz terpaksa ditarik balik kerana ia mengganggu satelit.

Spektrum 2.3 GHz telah diberikan kepada YTL E-Solutions Bhd, Packet One Networks (M) Sdn Bhd, Asiaspace Dotcom Sdn Bhd (bagi Semenanjung Malaysia) dan REDtone-CNX Broadband Sdn Bhd (Sabah dan Sarawak) selepas proses bidaan.

Tujuh syarikat yang diberikan akses kepada spektrum 3.5GHz adalah sama ada di bawah lesen atau secara percubaan. Syarikat-syarikat itu ialah Airzed Broadband Sdn. Bhd., AtlasONE Sdn. Bhd., TT dotCom Sdn. Bhd., Maxis Broadband Sdn. Bhd., Telekom Malaysia Bhd. (TM), NasionCom Sdn. Bhd. dan eB Technologies (M) Sdn. Bhd.

Syarikat-syarikat yang diberikan akses kepada spektrum 2.5 GHZ ialah Airzed Broadband, AtlasONE, Jaring Communications Sdn. Bhd. Maxis Broadband, TM, TT dotCom dan eB Technologies.

Dr. Lim berkata, dengan penarikan balik spektrum 2.5 dan 3.5 GHz itu, bilangan pengendali WiMax dikurangkan, sejajar dengan dasar kerajaan untuk mengagihkan setiap spektrum itu kepada pengendali yang berlainan.

"Jika ada terlalu banyak pengendali, mereka akan 'bunuh' satu sama lain dan (akhirnya) tiada siapapun akan melancarkan jalur lebar," tegasnya.

Eagles - How Long (mp3+lyrics)



Like a bluebird with his heart removed
Lonely as a train
I've run just as far as I can run
If I never see the good old days
Shinin' in the sun
I'll be doin' fine and then some

How long, how long
Woman, will you weep?
How long, how long
Rock yourself to sleep

I've been doin' time in a lonesome prison
Where the sun don't shine
And just outside the freedom river runs
Out there in that shiny night
With bloodhounds on your mind
Don't you know it's the same sad situation

How long, how long
Woman, will you weep?
How long, how long

Rock yourself to sleep

Everybody feels alright
You know, I heard some poor fool sing...
(Somebody oooh...)
Everyone is out there on the loose
Well, I wish I lived in the land of fools
Where no one knew my name
But what you get is not quite what you choose

Tell me, how long, how long
Woman, will you weep?
How long, how long
Rock yourself to sleep

How long, how long
Muddy river runs so deep
How long, how long
Goodnight baby, rock yourself to sleep
Sleep tight, baby, rock yourself to sleep
Bye, bye, bye, bye bye, baby, rock yourself to sleep

5 little-known Gmail features you may not yet know about



Quote post by Robby Stein from Gmail Blog

When we began rolling out a new Gmail code architecture a few weeks ago, we also launched some new features to help improve the speed and convenience of managing email. I've been using several of these new additions over the last few weeks, and while they might seem small on their own, they really can add up to save you a lot of time and hassle. That's why I decided to list my five favorite new features that are so new, you may not have noticed them. We are still rolling them out to IE6, international and Google Apps users, but for those of you who noticed a new contact manager among other recent improvements in our latest version, here they are:

5. "Archive and next" shortcut
We added a bunch of new shortcuts to Gmail, but one that I've found to be a true time-saver is what I call the "archive and next" shortcut. When I have a lot of mail, it can be really annoying to have to open a message, click "Back to Inbox" and then select the next email I want to read. So once you enable shortcuts in Settings, you can simply press the left bracket key "[" while viewing a message to archive it, and then immediately open the next oldest one. When I see a long list of unread messages, I like to open the first one and then just hit "[" to swiftly move through my mail and archive as I go. (P.S. By clicking the right bracket "]" you can also move the other way if you want to open newer messages after you archive).






4. Share mail searches with friends
How many times do your friends tell you, "I can't find that email you sent me." Now you can prove that you did indeed send that message, despite the accusations. All you have to do is search for the message using your expert mail searching skills, and when you find it listed in the results, just copy and paste the URL and email it to your friend. When he or she goes to that link while in Gmail, your friend's Gmail will run the same search you ran and will be able to locate that "lost" email instantly. For example, if you wanted to share a search for "pick me up at airport," so flight information can be located, you would send over this URL: http://mail.google.com/mail/#search/pick+me+up+at+airport.

3. Browser navigation and history
Your web browser is now a great way to navigate Gmail. Instead of having to find the right links on the page to move from inbox to messages to other Gmail views, you can use the browser navigation buttons (back and forward) to jump back and forth between emails. You can also open your browser history and click on specific emails that you've read to go right back to them. This allows you to quickly access certain emails without having to re-read your inbox. Browser history is something that often doesn't work well on complex web apps like Gmail, but we've gone to great lengths to make it work right.








2. Bookmark emails
I frequently need to save a single email for a period of time, such as a message that includes an important phone number. But I don't want to create a separate label for one message, and I also don't want to archive all the email that comes in after that message just to keep that thread near the top of my inbox--and hopefully the top of my mind. This problem is now easily solved by a new ability to bookmark specific emails. All emails now have dedicated URLs, so just by adding a browser bookmark while viewing a message, you can return to it whenever you want, just like a regular web page--although you will still have to log in to Gmail if you've signed out.

1. "Filter messages like this"
I find filters to be one of the most useful features in Gmail, but sometimes it can be hard to set them up quickly. So we added a new capability that makes a filter based on the message you are reading, so you can keep track of future similar emails. By clicking on the dropdown menu in the upper right-hand corner of every email (the upside-down triangle), you can now see the option to "Filter messages like this." Not only can you easily create a filter based on the sender, but this is especially handy if you are trying to filter emails sent to mailing lists. We automatically set up a filter for you based on the "list ID" header, which does a better job of finding emails sent to mailing lists.
