February 15th, 2013 No comments

When some countries are welcoming Valentine’s Day, chinese people are busy preparing their most important day of the year, which is the 年节 Lunar New Year (Chinese New Year). In China, it also known as 春节 Spring Festival. The derivative term of it is 过年, which mean “pass the year”. I myself as a descendant of chinese people, even though I live in Indonesia, I also celebrate the chinese new year festivities every year. Chinese new year is the moment when we usually gather as family together. In my house, i also have a tradition to pray to my ancestors by offering food and fruit in a table. This is a form of respect to our ancestors. Beside those two activity, there are still a lot of tradition we usually do during chinese new year.

This interaction of course involve a lot of the characters from various video game titles. From all characters who appears, some of them are fiction character, which means that the characters were never exist before this movie released. But some of them are real characters that appear in several real video game titles. Of course, the film will be weird and boring if we don’t see some video game characters we recognized in the movie. That makes the director of the movie pick several characters from famous video games to be cameo in this film. For me, it’s really fun to see some legendary characters in the movie, because it made me reminisce with my childhood when i play those games. After i check and examine the entire movie, i finally got the list of all of  video game characters that appear in the movie. The following are all real video game characters that appear in Wreck It Ralph movie.

1. Clean Desktop

By leaving files and folders on the desktop, it will directly give a workload when you want to display the screen. Indirectly, this process will slows down computer performance, even only a little. Make a folder called “Archive” and keep all the files and folder to the Archive folder.

Displaying Hard Disk icon (Macintosh HD) on the desktop will not help much for your activity. You can hide it from your Desktop by opening Finder Preferences and turn off all the “Show these items on the deskop“.

Blackberry 10 : The Latest Blackberry Innovation to Survive in Gadget Industry

February 4th, 2013 No comments

As one of Blackberry users, i certainly curious about how great the new Blackberry (Blackberry 10) that just launched in England, couple days ago (January 31, 2013). I believe, this would be a final chance for Research in Motion Limited that just change name into Blackberry to survive in gadget industry, after suffered greatly for the last 5 years. Blackberry stock has been declining for the last 4 years since it reach highest value at June 2008. The lack of innovation and the popularity of Apple and Android gadget are the reason why a lot of users began to leave Blackberry as their primary gadget.

I personally feel that the old Blackberry is nothing compared to iOS and Android gadget. The only reason why i still use Blackberry is its Messenger Application, Blackberry Messenger (BBM). BBM still dominate in Indonesia as number one messenger application beating Yahoo Messenger and WhatsApp Messenger. So it’s interesting to see what Blackberry 10 can do to make Blackberry survive in market for the next 5 years.
