Ooo.. That’s so hot. Fag.

February 26, 2007 at 3:24 pm (Craps, GY 白 TULAN, Tech, 星 Talk)

With Chinese New Year festivities pretty much been done and over with (technically it’s not, but fuck technicalities rite?), it’s time to get back to the real world. I havn’t been blogging for two reasons – I’ve been out of town for much of the holidays, and I don’t have internet access at home (or a computer at my internet enabled home home).

Anyways, I thought I’d start this post with a little bit of tech news. Remember the big hoo haa between Apple and Cisco over the rather unimaginative name “iPhone”? Well, the bout is over – the clash of loggerheads has been ended – but sadly, the much anticipated climatic volcano of gooey smackdown was never laid to anyone.

Here’s Apple’s official word on the case –

Cisco and Apple Reach Agreement on iPhone Trademark

SAN JOSE and CUPERTINO, California—February 21, 2007—Cisco and Apple® today announced that they have resolved their dispute involving the “iPhone” trademark. Under the agreement, both companies are free to use the “iPhone” trademark on their products throughout the world. Both companies acknowledge the trademark ownership rights that have been granted, and each side will dismiss any pending actions regarding the trademark. In addition, Cisco and Apple will explore opportunities for interoperability in the areas of security, and consumer and enterprise communications. Other terms of the agreement are confidential.

In a sentence – they kissed and made up, settled for shared custody and called it a day. Gay.

I also would like to take this chance to make a confession. It’s not the manliest thing to admit to, but then at least I know that I’m not the only person in my circle who’s more than a little turned on by this sort of thing.

Yes, shamefully, I am admitting to being a fan of … *shrieks of horror* … celebrity gossip. Faridz has been a long time provider of celeb gossip on the Rendang blog for quite a while now, and he hasn’t been getting too much slack from anyone in particular, so I’m guessing it’s a safe topic to blog about (without fear of it damaging my manliness).

In honour of my new found time waster, I’m even creating a new catagory for shit regarding this, simply called 星 Talk (Xing Talk). FYI, it’s pronounced Xing like Sing, not like Zing or X-ray or Bangali Simi Sik.

Anyway, let’s get down to business – my inagural post is dedicated to the boys at Rendang for giving me the courage to step out of my comfort zone (bitching, whining, bitching, cussing, emo posts) and be a new aged man of many interests.

Osman Faridz, Razman and Johan, this one’s for you.

Signing off before Harry’s wang wand mis-fires.

Cheers.
