No, it's not the iSlate or the iTablet. Apple calls its latest product, the iPad which sounds like a new feminine hygiene tech product. Can someone hand me the Pad please? Seriously Apple, the iPad?! How about iTampon?
Ok name aside, it looks awesome and it should perform as good as it looks based on the above video by Apple but wait. No flash? What?! No multitasking, no USB ports, no HDMI port, no GPS, no camera, no widescreen (only 4:3) and only 64GB! Now, that sucks.
Wait a minute. Is this the most advance technology that Apple is talking about? Don't think so. The iPad really is just a supersize iPod Touch. Don't get me wrong. I like it but I think I'll wait for version 2.0 before getting one.
Adobe says Flash apps will run on the iPad.
The iPad runs on iPhone OS 3.2. The keyboard is good, not great.

You don't need matches or lighters. Unfortunately for Whang, his self-lighting cigarette did not become a hit with Koreans. I wonder why.
Harry says, "I wanted to make this (the video above) due to the fact it bugged me in the movie that Jake managed to nail Neytiri with little to no knowledge of Na'vi mating practices. I mean, I'm assuming it's pretty similar, but considering they have magic hair veins that connect with nature, there's obviously some pretty big anatomical differences."

Players choose their favourite pioneers and pit their wits while trying to survive the obstacles and effects of real historical events. You can try out the online demo here.

Yes, that's me in the Reuters video report about the Singapore Tat2 Show 2010. I just love being in other people's video. LOL. I was at the Singapore Tat2 Show on Sunday to film the Miss Tattoo Asia Pageant. Watch out for the video on Klik.TV later today. It will be more kickass than the Reuters one, I guarantee. In the meantime, do take a look at my photos taken at the Show here. Lots of tattoos and hot bods!

Neveneffecten is a Belgian TV-program written and performed by the cabaret quartet of the same name. It's a comedy-show that contains a lot of absurd humor, based on the National Geographic documentaries. The above clip is from the episode "Making Of" from the second season of Neveneffecten. Not safe for work and for kids. I'm forever scarred.
Does your plaster keep coming off? When it encounters water, does your plaster fall off easily? Don’t worry, you just have to follow the instructions below!
1. What u need is plaster and scissors
2. Cut the plaster according to the diagram
3. It’s done!
But wait, you must also learn how to paste it!
1. For non-joint area: Firstly, cross the top left wing to the bottom right direction. Then, cross the top right wing to the bottom left direction. Lastly, hold the bottom left and right wings together in a parallel manner. Yay, it’s done!
2. For joint area: To start with, cross the top left wing to the up right direction. After that, cross the top right wing to the up left direction. Do the same for the bottom left and right wings. Done!
By doing this, it will prevent water from getting into the plaster while bathing, swimming or showering and prevents it from falling off easily.
