The Macintosh TV – released in 1993 – was an ill-fated attempt to combine the increasingly popular home computer market with a traditional television. It came with a CD-drive and a TV tuner card, and was one of the only Macs ever produced in black. Ultimately, however, it did not prove popular, largely because users couldn’t switch easily between watching television and other programmes. Only 10,000 were made.
In 1984, on January 24th, Apple released the first Macintosh home computer.
It was a revelation – mainly for its incorporation of a graphical display when its rivals could only display text.
The following year, founder Steve Jobs left the company.
Apple continued to make progress with innovative machines, but only after his return in 1996, that Apple’s computers began to achieve the popularity and recognition with new, design-led strategy – Yahoo News.
Malaysia has rejected the unilateral ceasefire call by so-called Sulu Sultan Jamalul Kiram III after he ordered his armed followers to illegally entered Malaysia and started the fight by killing two Malaysian police on Friday and another six the next day;please click here.
The Prime Minister of Malaysia, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said:
“Sulu militants must lay down arms and surrender unconditionally and operations against them will go on as long as it takes,”
I, like most Malaysian, agree with Datuk Seri Najib.
I just cannot understand how Jamalul Kiram III thinks about the whole incident.
Does he expect Malaysia to agree to a ceasefire whenever he feels like it after what he did?
Malaysia is a sovereign country and we have our own constitution and laws that must be respected by everybody, even the foreigners when they are in our lands.
If Jamalul Kiram III wants to stop the fight that he started, he must order his men to drop their weapons, surrender unconditionally and face the law of our country.
We are living in the modern world where we have to follow the laws and cannot do things as we wish.
This is not a computer game.
If we play computer games likeAge Of Empires III The Asian Dynasties, and play against the computer, we can just push the ceasefire button when we are almost defeated and everyone will stop attacking so that we could run back to our own colony and re-attack when we are stronger and have more armies; because it is only a game.
But the Lahad Datu incident is not a game, so he can’t just ask for a ceasefire when ever he wishes after he ordered his men to come to our country illegally with firearms and started shooting at our security forces after the government gave them more than two weeks to solve the matter through discussions.
We must be responsible and sensible if we want to be a leader.
I am grateful that Malaysia has a good King and good Sultans who care about the people.
I want to thank Jackie from WordPress for returning my blog, Ahmad Ali Karim’s Weblog that was deactivated for 3 days. I am a serious blogger and I have tried to work very hard to make my blog a successful site. On February 2, 2013, I was shocked to see a malware alert on my blog.
I was really upset and scared and I really did not know what to do. With the help of my family members, our friends and my wonderful blogger friends, we tried to solve the problem but it only got worse. Then my blog was blocked and I could not write any new post which made me really, really sad.
Again my the help of my family I tried to solve the problem but it only got worse until my blog was deactivated and I could not even read my post anymore. I was very, very sad because I was so scared that I might lost all the posts that I wrote since the past five years.
My blog means so much to me because it is a compilation of my works and ideas since I started blogging when I was five years old and how I learn to be a better writer year after year; and it is a part of my learning and growing up process. I wrote about what is important to me including good values and world news that I think important and that I want to keep for my future references.
Then Jackie wrote to us and explained that my blog was deactivated due to the US law, and told us that WordPress found out about my age when they tried to help me with my problems. My parents and I did not know that in accordance with US law and the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, WordPress needs parental notification in order to allow me to have my own website on because I am child under thirteen years old. My blog was available just a short time after my father wrote to WordPress, granting his permission for me to blog on WordPress.com..
Now I am really thankful and happy to get back my blog and to be able to write new posts. I want to thank Jackie and WordPress for being very supportive and I am very glad that I blog on WordPress. But the malware alert in Google Chrome is still not yet solved. I’m going to follow Jackie’s advice to contact Google and try to solve this problem and I hope that my problems will be solved as soon as possible.
I need to work harder now to get the traffic back to my blog as it used to be before these problems started a month ago. Meanwhile, I’m going to try the custom design and with that I’ll be able to learn lots of interesting things about blog designing. I’m looking forward to learn CSS coding to design my blog and I hope that I can make my blog a better site.
Congratulations WordPress for protecting the children’s right and privacy by enforcing the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act and for being very supportive to kid bloggers like me and thanks to Jackie for being so wonderful to me.
