This is actually something that I have been wanting (ring your bell? you go dig up where this line is from) to write about for days, but I am simply too tired for that. I saw this case of a 50yo super health conscious teacher who discovered that he has liver cancer in June, and then lung metastasis AND now bone metastasis. he has no hep symptoms at all, nothing palpable, no pain and only a weight drop. it started with a regular hep-B check up, a tumor that was assured to be surgically resectable... and now 2 IV discs crushed, bilateral infiltration to the femur, and an ancetebalum disappeared on Xray just like that. non smoker, non alcoholic, super regular excerciser. life is so unfair eh.
anyway, back to the Gillian issue, I think I am the most annoyed by the fact that people are turning the whole issue into a political monkey game.
Notice that the people that have been the loudest come from the pro-China camp: Orisun corp (oriental daily, the sun) and DAB (china-born singaporean Maoists basically).
And people forget that those magazines published by Orisun are just as bad (Oriental sundae, oriental weekly etc), voyeurist pics? oh yes, they have been going that for years, and those actresses were silent about it. Now NextMedia picked the wrong victim, she's from EEG (pro-China), this gives the whole pro-china camp an excellant opportunity to attack NextMedia: the only surviving publically anti-China media copr in Hong Kong. I'm not saying that NextMedia is right, but HK needs a media corp like that to neutralize the market.
the front page of Orisun (oriental daily and sun daily) for a consercutive three days was saying how NextMedia as a corperation has completely demoralized the HK newspaper industry (sheesh, who started putting prostitution ads on newspapers? I think it's oriental daily, WHO STARTED IT ALL??)
I believe that the photographer who took Gil's pics was a freelancer, and everybody had been bidding for those pictures: including the media corps from the pro-china camp.
Ah, freak show.
Here's the NEC N702iS with a detector in there that tells you about the orientation of the phone, so when you tilt the phone, the water level will align with the ground. the water level represents the battery status, and also for file transfering, you "pour water" onto your friend's phone, the column will actually go down. you have to see this baby in real life to believe it :) (video here)
