Okay, the title’s a little misleading; it’s (eventually) compulsory for all vehicle owners to give up their old Registration Card, colloquially known as ‘geran‘, and replace it with the new Vehicle Ownership Certificate, or VOC for short. But since it’s an upgrade, aren’t you curious about what benefits the VOC brings?It’s Going Paperless!
Do you have an innate fear of losing something as important yet insignificant as a slip of paper that literally defines your ownership of an asset? If yes, you’re not alone, and the Road Transport Department (Jabatan Pengangkutan Jalan, or JPJ) sympathises with you. In their effort to digitise and keep up with the dot com generation, the [...]
For you casual photography buffs out there, there’s hardly any need for you to lug a bulky camera around the next time you want to take pictures. Phone cameras have advanced so far that they’ve practically made cameras obsolete unless you’re doing photography for a living (and perhaps one day, not even then, who knows?).

This is relative, of course, since SSDs have been around for a while now since the late 2000s, especially in netbooks and ultrabooks, but it’s only become more common in laptops and desktops these few years. How is the SSD compared to the SATA?What Do They Do?

Then they recall that memory for you when you retrieve the file, or if you’ve installed your operation system (OS) on it, when you boot up your device. They just do the deed [...]
A large part of flight ticket booking is now automated and online. You no longer need to queue up at a counter, or wait for your number to be called, or visit a counter at all, actually. It’s all just a click away. Just because it’s computerised, though, doesn’t mean it’s error-free – that’s how error fares happen!What are Error Fares?
Error fares are basically fares that have been wrongly priced, whether due to human or computer errors. We’re not yet advanced enough technologically for computers to feed themselves input and troubleshoot them for errors, and sometimes, policy changes plus frantically- or sloppily-updated systems equals delicious error fares for potential [...]
