福佳始終有你2 (煲呔搵工靠你)

For all you local Chinese out there, this one for you, it’s funny as hell.

2. 「福佳」乃大吉大利的意思,本歌歌詞的定義詳見「有關埋沒福佳的澄清」。
3. 除歌詞外,此影片和我林忌本人絕對沒有任何關係,特此通告。
4. 憤長的解釋乃「憤怒的局長」,古有關雲長刮骨療傷,今有李憤長合併國章
5. 納稅的解釋,是 tax payer…相信比起「merge = 合作」易明一些
6. 福佳二的所有歌唱者,絕非傳媒報導的林、陳二人,而所有《福佳》及《福佳二》的工作人員亦承諾,三年內不會參加香港的各級選舉,特此通告。
7. 神秘人一號表示:福佳二的錄音,早在六月九日已經完成;當時已有網友試聽過該段錄音;而Rebuild 嘗試替林陳二人錄音之時,已是六月十日;因技術上的種種問題不如理想,眾《福佳》人員於當晚集體決定,不會把這兩位後加的錄音,加入己完成的錄音之中;唯 有關記者連最基本的查證工作都沒有做,包括無中生有,把林忌與黎智英的見面,改寫成為「吃飯」。林忌白紙黑透過 Gmail 寫得清清楚楚,是「見面」,相關證據全部在 Gmail server,是可以呈堂的;可是該記者卻偏要把見面,寫成「吃飯」。下次女孩子約見面,突然被寫成吃飯,又突然被寫成上床,怎麼辦?連老闆的資料都可以 隨便「亂作」,這樣的報導可信性有幾高?在那些人大政協不斷攻擊黎先生的同時,居然亂作「吃飯」,有何居心?

• Screen that’s visible in direct sunlight
• Software upgrades over time
• Decent voice quality……

What it doesn’t have:

O2 Flame is Here

26atom.jpg

[16 May] The first PocketPC with built-in Nvidia graphics processor is finally here in town, the all new O2 Flame.  Featuring Windows Mobile 5.0 running on a Intel® XScale® PXA 270 Processor at 520 MHz; NVIDIA® GoForce® 5500 GPU driving a 3.6″ 640×480 LCD; 2GB of flash ROM and 128MB of RAM; 2MP digital camera with flash and 4x zoom and autofocus; and supports tri-band GSM, WCDMA2100, GPRS, WiFi 802.11 b/g, Bluetooth, USB, and Infrared.  If you want to see some more close up comparison pics between the O2 Flame and the O2 Atom Life, click here for the Taiwanese site. 

Only English version currently available in shops down in Wanchai and Mongkok computer centres, prices starts at around $7,000 depending whether you opt for the whole set of freebies such as extra battery, bluetooth earpiece…etc. or not.  Initial reviews from local forums indicated that there’s a lot of bugs still, probably would need couple patches to fix.

[Updated: 26 May] Yet another good review on the O2 Flame here, too bad it’s in Chinese, check out the pics tho.

[Updated: 27 June] Mobile01 have posted a review on the O2 Flame, for English, click here.  For Chinese, click here.

More Review – Samsung Q1 Ultra

q1ultra.jpg

Review on the Samsung Q1 Ultra by InformationWeek (source via GottaBeMobile) is up, full article here.  The conclusion from the author – not so good.  Extract as below -

The ultramobile PC category is growing rapidly, and designers and manufacturers are experimenting almost wildly with features and designs. Samsung has been one of the leaders with its work on the Origami spec and the rapid release of new Q1 models over the past year. It’s design decisions for the Q1 Ultra are interesting, particularly the continuing omission of a full keyboard and the reduction in processor speed from 1 GHz to 800 MHz (even while adding Windows Vista, an operating system that requires a good deal of heavy lifting).

The portability is hugely tempting — I’d love to leave my 6-pound laptop at home and take a Q1 Ultra (and a folding keyboard) on my next trip. But overall, a device with a small screen, no keyboard, and performance in the PDA class doesn’t quite convince me it’s a “fully functional PC.”

Review – Fujitsu U1010

u1010.jpg

Star-TechCentral posted a review on the Fujitsu U1010, link here.  The machine is now available in Hong Kong and the price tag is HK$ 9,998.  I checked and played with one yesterday at the Broadway shop and my first impressions are -

  • the CPU is slow compared to my Sony U27, much lag in video playback
  • the 5.6″ screen not as crisp as I thought, touch sensitivity mediocre
  • the 4-cell battery not going to last too long
  • running Vista on this machine is really stretching things a bit, should have better performance under XP Tablet OS

    My Gears – Jabra BT8010

    jabra8010.jpg

    [11 Jan] Saw this today, got it, and let me tell you, this is a piece of art.  Don’t get me wrong, still like my Plantronics Pulsar 590A for my music and online gaming (ventrilo) and my old Jabra BT800 (first with caller display), but this piece is ultimate.  You can wear this as just one piece (right side) or connect the attachable stereo unit to it (on left side) and enjoy true Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP) and Audio Video Remote Control Profile (AVRCP).  Remember the dongle I had with my Plantronics Pulsar 590A? (see link here) it works with wonder with this Jabra headset.  Love it on my iPod and new Archos 404 (review later).  This headset cost HK$850 (around US$110) and it’s definitely worth it.

    For detail specification, click here.

    [Update: 13 Jan]  Well, the headphones itself is very nice, however, a major design flaw was noticed the past week.  The plastic ear hook piece can be detached easily, lost mine already.  Called Jabra’s local agent in town and they don’t have the spares yet.  Bummer.  Went downtown and bought the Jabra BT125 which uses the same plastic ear hook piece (US$45).  So for those of you who bought this, beware.

    [Update: 19 Jan] More defects noted.  The plastic ear hook piece I was talking about last week, breaks fairly easily, just got mine exchanged at Broadway (10 days replacement guarantee, any shop, that’s why I love shopping there).

    [Updated: 26 June] Found a new review and vid on the BT8010 from UltraMobileGeeks, link here.  FYI, I’m still using it daily listening to MP3 on my way to work, still works fine.  No more problem with the plastic ear hook.
