Google latest gadget ~ Google Buzz comes to Google Maps for Mobile 4.0. It is currently fully supported for Android 2.0+. And Buzz Layer on Google Maps for mobile for other mobile platform except BlackBerry. I am not a big fan of Google Maps because Malaysia maps are not detail enough (at my small hometown Sungai Petani) and slow updated. You still can get high level detail but just not detail enough for me like US or Singapore maps which you can see cars and people from the satellite view. Yeah… That’s what I call maps. But when will it comes to Malaysia?


Yeah… I found the best free video converter for me finally. I downloaded and tried several free video converters. All of them have its own pros and cons. Finally, one that survives and matches my requirements ~ MediaCoder.

MediaCoder x64 in action

With a flexible and extendable architecture, latest codecs and tools are updated added in constantly. MediaCoder intends to be the swiss army knife for media transcoding in all time.


Some of the latest smart phones like HTC HD2 do not have hardware d-pad. But some of the old software requires it. So what should you do? Simple, just download VolDpad, install it and use your phone’s volume buttons as the d-pad.

VolDpad Guides

  • Volume UP is remaped to d-pad UP. Can be hold for autorepeat.
  • Volume DOWN is remaped to d-pad DOWN. Can be hold for autorepeat.
  • Double click Volume UP is remaped to d-pad LEFT. Does not support autorepeat.
  • Double click Volume DOWN is remaped to d-pad RIGHT. Does not support autorepeat.
  • Double click with hold in Volume UP is remaped to d-Pad RETURN with Hold.Does not support autorepeat.
  • Double click with hold in Volume DOWN is remaped to d-Pad RETURN.Does not support autorepeat.
  • If a call is being established or is active the volume keys will behave normally.
  • Running the file a second time will close the resident with a small tone.

Hmm… The volume function is not working anymore on HTC HD2 after installed. But you still can adjust the volume during call. Then, VolDpad is disabled on my case. Anyway, do try it out. It might be a useful tool for you.

“Err… I hate traffic jam. Why did you point this route? We should take another better route. See… It is so jam now.” Facing this similar situation everyday? No worry. My Traffic Updates comes to rescue. It is a Windows Mobile application (Freeware) that enables user to check live (almost) traffic conditions. Currently, version 1 only provides traffic information from LLM and ITIS at Malaysia. A perfect tool for me who stay in Malaysia.

Finally, I got my HTC HD2 from SiS Distribution (M) Sdn. Bhd. at last after waiting for more than 1 month. HTC HD2 was out of stock at most of the places in Malaysia. I kept after my dealer every week and got response that still no stock from SiS Distribution (M) Sdn. Bhd. Come on, is the sales that good or this HTC HD2 has production yield issue? Okay, let’s other answer that. And I will unbox it now.
