  1. No, you won’t be fined S$1,000 for using your mobile phone while crossing the road: S’pore police source: https://mothership.sg/2019/12/pedestrian-mobile-phone-fine/ Using your mobile phone while crossing the road as a pedestrian is not a crime, the Singapore Police Force (SPF) would like you to know. The police put out this clarification on Wednesday, Dec. 18, to deem false a message making the rounds in message apps and chat groups claiming otherwise. The message claimed that from Dec. 1, 2019, pedestrians may be fined S$1,000 for using their mobile phones while crossing the road. Not true The police said: “The police would like to clarify that it is not an offence for pedestrians to use a mobile communication device when crossing the road.” “However, we advise pedestrians to avoid using such devices when crossing the road, as such usage would distract them from the road conditions and the movement of vehicles around them.” The police said the issue is more about safety. It said pedestrians should exercise caution at all times, and look after their personal safety and that of other road users. The police also urged members of the public not to spread unsubstantiated information which may cause public alarm. Highway Code amended What has changed is the Highway Code, where amendments came into effect on Dec. 1, 2019. The Highway Code is a code of conduct for all road users. They include guidelines on the use of personal mobility devices, giving way to emergency vehicles and pedestrians’ usage of mobile communication devices.

    China's Xiaomi Is Coming ...

    Don't get any wrong ideal ........... It's China Smartphone. Yahoo News : China’s Xiaomi confirms it will bring its smartphones to Singapore this year Today Xiaomi, the Chinese smartphone maker known for selling top-notch handsets at bargain bin prices, revealed via social media that it’s next stop beyond the Greater China will indeed be Singapore. Yesterday Xiaomi’s Hong Kong and Taiwan Facebook pages posted messages featuring the company’s rabbit mascot beside a Chinese dragon proclaiming “Hello Singapore”, linking to a Xiaomi Singapore Facebook page. However, now that Hugo Barra posted the same picture on his Google+ profile page, the proverbial writing is on the proverbial wall. Curiously, the Singapore Facebook page appears to have been created in May 2013 – three months before Barra got on board. This might indicate that Xiaomi had been eyeing the move for some time. Xiaomi had publicly indicated that its next overseas stop beyond Taiwan and Hong Kong would be Singapore back in December when it held a fan meetup in Taipei. The move to the city-state will test the company’s chops in a market in which consumers have higher incomes on average. It also will be branching out from exclusively Chinese-speaking markets into a multi-lingual market. Just this morning Xiaomi announced that it had sold over 18 million handsets in 2013, more than twice the 7.19 million it doled out the previous year. In 2014, it’s hoping to hit 40 million. As for revenues, the company raked in over $5.18 billion for the year. Saw it in China last month whilst visiting Hainan Island. Nice and light, only problem is program all in Chinese wording which reframe me from buying....
  3. mobile phones again .... Six-year-old girl dies after near-drowning in pool with lifeguards, swimming instructor distracted The state coroner criticised two lifeguards and a swimming instructor after a six-year-old girl, who did not know how to float or swim independently without support, died following a near-drowning at Kallang Basin Swimming Complex. On Dec 20, 2017, little Sherlyn Ler was left to fend for herself for at least four minutes as she swam using a swimming board. Her instructor, Mr Yeo Chwee Chuan, had led her to the pool's mid-point during her 7pm lesson before allowing the girl to swim to the edge. But he then turned away to focus on his other students, aged six to eight years old. Of the two lifeguards near the teaching pool, one was busy on his mobile phone while the other spent time arranging chairs. In an inquiry into her death on Tuesday (April 2), State Coroner Kamala Ponnampalam said: "The lifeguard should not be distracted by the use of his personal devices or idle chit-chat. "He should never leave his post unguarded. Drowning is known to occur quickly and quietly between 20 and 60 seconds." She also noted several lapses in Mr Yeo's management of his lesson, saying his class formation was "poor". "At several points in time, more than one student was out of his line of sight... Ideally, the child, especially one who is not an independent swimmer, should be within arm's reach," added the state coroner, who found Sherlyn's death a tragic misadventure. Although the girl's mother was seated on a nearby platform to keep an eye on her daughter, she too became distracted by her phone and when she turned to speak to other people. Moments after Mr Yeo turned his back, the 1.11m tall Sherlyn went under in a pool where the water's depth was between 0.8m and 1m. She died in hospital on Jan 9 last year from a lack of oxygen and blood flowing to the brain following the near-drowning. The Straits Times understands that Mr Yeo's coaching licence has been suspended by Sport SG and Mr Firdaus Rajatmarican and Mr Law Kum Wah, who left the pool unattended for at least four minutes, are no longer lifeguards. It emerged at the hearing that at 7.05pm, Mr Firdaus, who had been watching over the training pool, asked Mr Law to take over his duty as he needed to use the washroom. The state coroner said that closed-circuit television footage showed Mr Firdaus looking at his phone while Mr Law was arranging some chairs in the area. At about 7.15pm, two girls in the pool noticed Sherlyn floating face up and alerted Mr Law. Mr Law and Mr Yeo swam towards the girl and cardiopulmonary resuscitation was performed on her. Paramedics arrived at the swimming complex at around 7.30pm and she was rushed to Tan Tock Seng Hospital, before being transferred to KK Women's and Children's Hospital the next day. State Coroner Kamala said that according to Mr Garett Lim, who is a trainer of the Swimsafer programme at Sport SG, Sherlyn should not have been left to swim alone. She was about 10m from her coach when the incident happened. Mr Lim also said the swimming board is a poor flotation device which is not stable and may float away, leaving the child unaided. The state coroner added: "Children, in particular, need constant supervision around water which cannot be done if the coach is not able to see them." Sherlyn's family members were in court on Tuesday but they declined to comment.

    Leave home without your wallet

    My experience in past 2 days where one of the day i forgot to bring my wallet out. Day 1 - with wallet but never get to use cash - Went to the physio at NUH, after the session i went to make payment, counter nurse told me 'cashless please'. - Going to watch movie with wife, so i make booking via phone apps and pay through Masterpass. - Took a grab to orchard. - Still have an hour to kill while waiting for wife, went to a cafe for coffee, place order and took out cash, the staff point to the signboard 'cashless payment ONLY'. Day 2 - without wallet (i left it in my wife's bag when we were watching movie) - Didn't notice i dun have my wallet until i reach office bus stop, my ezlink card was behind my phone try to act like i have a NFC sim card . - Panic for 2min thinking how to survive for the day, walk into Starbucks which i have the Starbucks app in my phone, breakfast settled. - Come lunch time, dun want to eat Starbucks again, heng i stored a credit card in Samsung Pay. walk to Hans and pay through Samsung Pay. - Dinner time met up with wife, went into a Korean cafe and they told us to scan the QR code on the table where you place order to making payment all via the phone!!?? i input my card number detail (i actually have those info in my phone but each info was hide in different apps). So i manage to survive 2 days without cash (wallet) for medical, transport, meals, movie, and shopping and thank god my phone battery can last whole day

    Mobile phone explosion

    what a way to go ... and as usual, the question on everyone's mind is : what phone ? Mobile phone explosion kills Malaysian venture capital firm's CEO KUALA LUMPUR: A mobile phone explosion led to the death of 45-year-old Cradle Fund Sdn Bhd CEO Nazrin Hassan, according to a statement released by the company on Friday (Jun 15). The company confirmed that the post-mortem report concluded the cause of death on Thursday as complications from blast injuries attributable to an exploding handphone that was being charged next to him. A message from the family that has been circulating on social media quoted Nazrin’s brother-in-law as claiming that at some point the phone had overheated and exploded, causing a blunt trauma at the back of Nazrin’s head and caused his death. The mattress too had caught fire but Nazrin was already lifeless by then, said the brother-in-law whose name was not mentioned in the message. Police had earlier said Nazrin was trapped in a bedroom fire at his double-storey terrace house in Mutiara Damansara yesterday and probably died of smoke inhalation. He had also suffered burns on his body. Nazrin leaves behind his wife and four children, according to the Star.

    Samsung Note 8

    Starting new thread for this. Test units Note 8 was released for media review: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lBoEQwPawrU&t=123s Against the essential phone: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MwjkcG7n8m4
  9. A crash resulting in serious injury or death is more likely to be caused by a distracted driver than a drinking one. Waikato District Health Board trauma specialist Dr Grant Christey said distracted drivers cause 25 per cent of serious crashes, whereas drinking drivers cause 18 per cent. "The most common reasons are texting or talking on a mobile phone, people talking in the car, or kids in the back." "They also suggest you are 400 per cent more likely to crash if you're using a mobile phone Please be safe out there everyone!!
  10. FYI bros .. especially those who still use phone at the red light when vehicle is stationary. please note it is now illegal to do so without a mount. http://www.straitstimes.com/news/singapore/transport/story/what-you-need-know-about-the-new-changes-the-road-traffic-act-feb-1-2 SINGAPORE - As of Feb 1, it will be illegal for drivers to hold any type of mobile device while driving. Previously, only calling or texting someone on a mobile phone was barred. On Sept 8, 2014, changes to the Road Traffic Act were passed into law and a wider range of mobile devices, as well as heavier penalties for offenders, was added to the Act. The changes were prompted by a 20 per cent rise in the past two years in the number of summonses for using a mobile phone while driving - from 2,938 in 2012 to 3,572 in 2013. Here's what you need to know about the changes. 1. Mobile devices Anyone caught using and holding a mobile device while driving can be found guilty of committing an offence. To be specific, mobile devices are any hand-held equipment which are designed or capable of being used for telecommunication. This means phones as well as tablets. 2. As long as you are using it, you can be charged It is no longer just talking or texting that will get you in trouble. The new changes include surfing the web, visiting social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter, and downloading material. The law applies to using and holding a device while driving, including when the car is stationary at a red light. 3. Okay if the device is mounted The amended law applies to drivers holding a device. It is not an offence to use the mobile device if it is mounted on a holder. 4. Penalties First-time offenders can be fined up to $1,000 and/or jailed for up to six months. Repeat offenders face up to $2,000 in fines and/or up to 12 months in jail. 5. What about wearables? Wearable technology such as the Google Glass and smart watches are not covered in the amended law. But the use of such devices could be classified as inconsiderate driving, an offence which carries up to a $1,000 fine and a six-month jail term. Senior Minister of State for Home Affairs Masagos Zulkifli commented on this during the amendment of the law in parliament on Sept 8, 2014, saying: "We will continue to monitor the situation... and study the practices of other jurisdictions as they evolve to deal with (new) types of smart devices."

    The Great SIM heist

    Edward Snowden again! Hot topic in Europe but here... not reported. For everybody's awareness. Your mobile phone might not be secured. Uncle Sam might be reading your smses... HOW SPIES STOLE THE KEYS TO THE ENCRYPTION CASTLE https://firstlook.org/theintercept/2015/02/19/great-sim-heist/ AMERICAN AND BRITISH spies hacked into the internal computer network of the largest manufacturer of SIM cards in the world, stealing encryption keys used to protect the privacy of cellphone communications across the globe, according to top-secret documents provided to The Intercept by National Security Agency whistleblower Edward Snowden. The hack was perpetrated by a joint unit consisting of operatives from the NSA and its British counterpart Government Communications Headquarters, or GCHQ. The breach, detailed in a secret 2010 GCHQdocument, gave the surveillance agencies the potential to secretly monitor a large portion of the world’s cellular communications, including both voice and data. With these stolen encryption keys, intelligence agencies can monitor mobile communications without seeking or receiving approval from telecom companies and foreign governments. Possessing the keys also sidesteps the need to get a warrant or a wiretap, while leaving no trace on the wireless provider’s network that the communications were intercepted. Bulk key theft additionally enables the intelligence agencies to unlock any previously encrypted communications they had already intercepted, but did not yet have the ability to decrypt.

  16. Very often seeing them chatting on mobile phone while walking, washing cars, with children, marketing........Big Business! I wander how much are their phone expenses?
  17. An ordinary Singaporean has a lot of concerns on his mind which could include his child's education, cost of living and job stability. However, it is best to put all these concerns away temporarily while driving. According to an analysis of the US national crash data, more fatal car crashes are caused by drivers who are 'lost in thought' rather than using a mobile phone. To be exact, 10 percent of the fatal accidents in the US involve at least one driver who is distracted and 62 percent of the distraction had to do with daydreaming and 'lost in thought'. Mobile phone usage constituted 12 percent. The AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety advised drivers to stay focused on the dangers of the road by playing the 'what if' game and asking themselves how they would react to unexpected events on the road. The foundation said that drivers should treat driving as a complicated task requiring full attention. Other significant distractions include rubbernecking, having a conversation with the passengers, eating and moving an object.
