Have never heard of The Whitest Boy Alive ? Don’t worry, you’re not the only one. I had many friends who were asking who was this whitest boy alive and is he anything like that white boy in Powder; which is a 90’s movie for those of you who don’t know. Once I mentioned that it’s one half of Kings of Convenience; who brought the house down during their very first Kuala Lumpur show last year, only then did some of them go “Ahhhhhhh”.

The Whitest Boy Alive

The Whitest Boy Alive (TWBA) is three-fourths German and one-fourth Norwegian. Erlend Øye, the Norse quarter this musical pie, is better known as half of indie band duo Kings of Convenience (KOC). This time he sings again, yielding electric guitars and dancier tunes thanks to his mates from Deutschland: Marcin Öz on bass, Sebastian Maschat on drums and Daniel Nentwig on keyboards. What started off as a side project during a Berlin stint back in 2003 has evolved, now they tour the world showcasing their unique music style. TWBA is a little bit pop, a little bit rock, a little bit disco, but completely bound to get you feeling good and busting out those moves on the floor.

Interesting facts about the Google Nexus S

The Google Nexus S was recently launched in Malaysia last weekend. I had a chance to play around with it and here’s some interesting observation on Google’s latest Nexus.

Countour Display

The “Countour display”, Google and Samsung claims that the Nexus S is the first device to offer such a display, looking at all the other flat touchscreen displays out there currently this really made the Nexus S special. Holding  against your cheeks feel really natural as the curvature of the glass hugs the curvature of the cheeks. With a contoured screen, coupled with a ridge on the back of the phone makes it easy and comfortable to type with. I was intrigued with this little technological marvel and decided to dig deeper.

Yet another Galaxy Tab ?

Samsung certainly has been busy with the production of the Galaxy Tab. The Galaxy Tab 10.1 was only recently announced and today the 22nd of March they might be unveiling their latest Galaxy Tab; the 8.9″ variant.

If you head over to Samsung’s Facebook page you’ll see an image with the Galaxy Tab followed by the numbers “78910”. The numbers might seem cryptic at first but there’s a high possibility that it denotes the different display sizes of the Galaxy Tab; 7″,8.9″ and 10.1″.

Bubble Tea, an addiction to most people and with an array of bubble tea shops strewn around town, it’s often difficult to know which ones are really good and worthy of a revisit. Personally, I love having a cup of bubble tea and am constantly on the lookout for a shop in the mall. The variety of flavours and colours keeps me constantly coming back for more as I challenge my taste buds with flavours like peach,lychee, passion fruit,mint, chocolate, grape fruit, mango, yakult; the variety is just practically endless. Of course there’s also the traditional milk tea, which is an all time favourite. Bitting into the ‘bubbles/pearls’ is what the fun is all about in bubble tea.

send2cloud – from Android to Google Chrome

It was awesome having the ability of sending links and info to Google Chrome via Chrome to Phone but I often wondered if the reverse was possible. After much searching I found this app called send2cloud. There are times I was using the phone to browse a website and when I sit in front of the computer I wish there was a way to see it in a full browser; emailing it and then copying/pasting the link was one way or just use send2cloud to instantly open the link in Chrome.

With Send2Cloud all you have to do is go to Menu -> Share page -> send2cloud and it opens up the app.

Clicking on send will immediately send the url to your Google Chrome. Don’t worry your computer doesn’t have to be turned on for it to work. Utilising Google doc’s, the application will share the url and the Chrome extension will automatically show an alert when you launch the browser.

The extension can be found here. The application is listed in the Android marketplace as “send2cloud”. Firefox users can download the extension here.
