4 07 2017

[Yahoo News}- When it comes to taking photos on our iPhones, most of us are happy to take a snap that is remotely worthy of Instagram – before being modified with a dozen filters to ensure that we secure those all important likes.

But when it comes to the annual iPhone photography awards, it’s all a little different – with winners that are capable of capturing incredible shots of everyday life on earth.

Here’s a snapshot of this year’s winners.

Drawing Using Wacom Intuos Creative Pen Tablet

27 01 2015
Apricot

Apricot, The Cat. My first drawing using the Wacom Intuos Creative Pen Tablet.

I drew the above picture using our Wacom Intuos Creative Pen Tablet.

It’s easy to draw with the tablet because it is similar to drawing using a pencil.

But the hard part is, the lines that I draw are not as straight and as smooth as and as the lines that I draw with a pencil because when I’m looking at the tablet, I can’t look at what I’m drawing,

But after the undos and redos, I finished my drawing, and I think that the result is very nice 😉

I really enjoy using the Wacom Intuos Creative Pen Tablet.

Developed by CIA’s Office of Research and Development in the 1970s, this micro Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) was the first flight of an insect-sized aerial vehicle (Insectothopter). It was an initiative to explore the concept of intelligence collection by miniaturized platforms. (Courtesy of the Central Intelligence Agency)

These are some of the cool gadgets on display at the Central Intelligence Agency’s astonishing private museum in Langley, Virginia.

Yahoo News reporter Olivier Knox is very lucky to get to tour the 14,000-square-foot CIA Museum at the agency’s Virginia fortress.

The 800 objects on display highlight the agency’s technological ideas and focus on the organization’s successes.

There are lots of cool inventions in the first half of the 20th century.

Electrically heated vest, portable radio hat and lots of other cool things.

There’s even an early version of a car GPS unit.

Just that it doesn’t use satellite.

Now why not we take a look at some of the inventions…

Google Street View Comes To Malaysia

23 09 2013

Do you like the idea of exploring the streets in Malaysia from your computers?

Now we can, but it will take a while until we can explore all the streets in Malaysia because Google Malaysia’s crews are still taking photos of the streets in Malaysia.

However, there are 18 locations that could now be explored using the street view made by Google Maps.

– Sri Subramaniam Temple, Batu Caves

– Masjid Sultan Sallahuddin Abdul Aziz Shah, Shah Alam

– Taman Tasik Titiwangsa

– Fort Cornwallis, Penang

Dharmikarama Burmese Temple, Georgetown, Penang

Kapitan Keling Mosque, Penang

– Penang War Museum

– Taman Putra Perdana, Putrajaya

– Taman Rimba Riang Park, Selangor

– Taman Tasik Shah Alam, Selangor

– Sunway Lagoon

– Shah Alam Go Kart

– Taman Desa Water Park

– Taman Rimba Kiara

– Taman Botanical Kepong

– Taman Tasik Kepong Metropolitan

– Desa Park City

– Taman Tasik Ampang Hilir

Those places can be explored using the classic Google Maps, or the new Google Maps.

It will be fun to see the car with the camera that Google use to collect all the photos for Google Street View.

Anyway, if you don’t want your house to be seen on the Street View, you can contact Google.

Have fun using Street View!

Here is the video of the launching of Street View feature in Malaysia.
