Ramalan Pasukan ke Suku Akhir, Separuh Akhir dan Akhir Piala Dunia 2010

Jadual Piala Dunia di bawah hanya jangkaan @ ramalan daripada penulis semata-mata , tiada kena mengena dengan mana-mana pihak. Keputusan perlawanan mungkin berbeza atau mungkin pasukan terpilih mungkin tewas dan tidak layak di peringkat suku akhir @ separuh akhir @ perlawanan akhir.Penulis memilih Brazil sebagai juara Piala Dunia 2010 kerana Brazil menggunakan strategi permainan secara 'simple football' @ 'Samba' dan banyak memerangkap pihak lawan. Argentina juga mungkin jadi pilihan juara jika mereka mengekalkan 'konsistensi' dalam setiap perlawanan sehingga ke perlawanan akhir.

English Funnies…

If you take an Oriental person and spin him around several times, does he become disoriented?

If people from Poland are called Poles, why aren't people from Holland called Holes?

Why do we say something is out of whack? What's a whack?

Do infants enjoy infancy as much as adults enjoy adultery?

If "love is blind," why is lingerie so popular?

Why is the man who invests all your money called a broker?

Why do croutons come in airtight packages? It's just stale bread to begin with.

When cheese gets it's picture taken, what does it say?

Why is a person who plays the piano called a pianist but a person who drives a race car not called a racist?

Why are a wise man and a wise guy opposites?

Why do overlook and oversee mean opposite things?

Why isn't 11 pronounced "onety one"?

"I am" is reportedly the shortest sentence in the English language. Could it be that "I do" is the longest sentence?

If lawyers are disbarred and clergymen defrocked, doesn't it follow that electricians can be delighted, musicians denoted, cowboys deranged, models deposed, tree surgeons debarked, and dry cleaners depressed?

If Fed Ex and UPS were to merge, would they call it Fed UP?

Do Lipton Tea employees take coffee breaks?

What hair color do they put on the drivers licenses of bald men?

I thought about how mothers feed their babies with tiny little spoons and forks so I wondered, what do Chinese mothers use for learning chopsticks? Toothpicks?

Why do they put pictures of criminals up in the Post Office? What are we supposed to do, write to them? Why don't they just put their pictures on the postage stamps so the mailmen could look for them while they delivered the mail?

If it's true that we are here to help others, then what exactly are the others here for?

You never really learn to swear until you learn to drive.

No one ever says, "It's only a game", when their team is winning.

Ever wonder what the speed of lightning would be if it didn't zigzag?

Last night I played a blank tape at full blast. The mime next door went nuts.

Whatever happened to Preparations A through G?

If olive oil comes from olives, where does baby oil come from?

Believe it or Not, Self-Promotion Can Hurt You

The interesting thing about online self-promotion is that it can be vital to your success, but can also make you look horrible, tarnish your reputation, and alienate people. There are good ways to promote yourself, and there are bad ways. Some of the bad ways are often looked upon as spam - things like blog comment spam, forum spam, or of course Twitter/Facebook spam come to mind.

As iFroggy's Patrick O'Keefe said in an interview we did with him at SXSW, it's just disrespectful to a person's space or community. "All kinds of online communities have their own form of spam," and people always cross the line, he says.

O'Keefe also offered a couple of good tips for doing self-promotion right:

1. Look for the best people or most popular people - the people in a community that are already doing it right. Who's using the forum right? Who's using Twitter right? Watch and learn. Look at their practices.

2. Look at the guidelines. Online communities will often have terms of service, FAQs or some kind of posted policies. Read them.

If a blogger or forum expresses a policy against links in comments, then don't insert your link. Chances are that if you do, you'll look bad to the rest of the community, and that's not the kind of promotion you want.

Unfortunately, not all communities have readily available policies, but you can still observe how the rest of the community interacts with one another, and most of them aren't just throwing links around, you should probably acknowledge this and take it as a hint.

I realize that this is common sense to many, but at the same time, many, many people just don't seem to get it. Either that or they don't care. But they should care, because if they really want to earn business, this is just not a good way to go about it. They may not realize this kind of behavior is looked upon as spam, but if you're one of these people, I can assure you it is most certainly looked upon this way.

Four Modern Web Design Tips to Improve Your Website

Web design is a field that is steeped in theory but relatively short on must-do tasks or dedicated rules to follow. While the laws of thirds, contrast, and balance catch out inexperienced designers and provide seasoned website developers with an added visual advantage, the vast majority of web design projects leave designers with a refreshing degree of creative freedom - certainly something that is welcome in a global economy often limited by established processes.

However, more freedom is not always a good thing. As many designers, developers, and strategists will tell you, a project built on limited requirements and assigned without direction can leave developers stuck trying to pursue a difficult goal. Creating an ideal website, particularly a commissioned website, without adequate communication can be difficult and stressful, especially when there are commercial expectations behind it.

That is why it is occasionally best to stick to the basics. If you are struggling to come to terms with a vast and unrestricted project, let these four modern web design tips serve as a roadmap for your development strategy. Do not feel limited by the "rules" of online design, but do use them as you should - as a non-essential tool.

Design With Conversions In Mind

Effective commercial websites are not designed to dazzle visitors with flashy graphics or win points in design competitions - they are designed to help sell products, market services, or spread a message. Whether your website's goals are commercial or social, political or personal, its design needs to be focused around them. Drop the idea of impressing visitors with a flashy layout or stylish banner and instead focus on producing the desired effects.

Complete Your Project, Then Eliminate Half

Great websites are not packed with content, loaded with widgets, or rendered useless by a dizzying web of on-page elements. The most effective websites out there - the Google, Delicious, and Facebook types - do not focus so much on crowded design, but on effective design.

For most designers, indulgence and experimentation is a part of the creative process. By all means let it inspire and motivate you, but ensure that it is free of the final product.

Test, Test, Test

With tools like Google Analytics, CrazyEgg, and Google Website Optimizer available, there is absolutely no excuse for a commercial website that is free of any testing platforms. Whether your ambitions involve selling coffee mugs or high-end stereos; gold rings or pet collars, your website needs to be paired with an effective testing application.

Don't Feel Tempted to Appeal to Trends

They say truly effective design is timeless. The Dyson vacuum cleaner, the Apple iPod, and the Volkswagen Beetle are all examples of design's incredible power to sustain itself when built away from the conjecture and short-term thinking of current trends.

If you want your design to last, and not become a wasted asset within mere months, a focus on long-term design principles are important. Study more than just effective websites - look at elegant magazine page layouts, slick book covers, and timeless industrial design pieces for your website's inspiration.

Do Facebook's New Privacy Settings Really Protect Your Privacy?

As Long as Users Are Comfortable, Facebook and Businesses Will Benefit

Facebook has introduced its latest changes to privacy settings, to appease disgruntled users who have been somewhere within the range of mildly irritated to outraged over the previous incarnation. The company is getting numerous pats on the back, or at least "that's more like it" responses from people for the most part (there are some who still aren't satisfied).

Do you like the latest approach Facebook is taking to privacy? Tell us what you think.

While the settings do address the main concerns that have been so widely discussed and publicized since the launch of Facebook's Open Graph/instant personalization initiative, no privacy settings are truly going to protect people's privacy on Facebook - and that's not Facebook's fault. I would blame a combination of human nature and technology.

If you're worried about privacy and how it is related to Facebook, it really doesn't matter how many times Facebook adjusts its privacy settings. The fact of the matter is that there is no more privacy, unless you don't interact with people whatsoever. This applies whether you have a Facebook account or not. That really makes no difference if someone whips out their phone and takes a picture of you. With most modern phones, all they have to do is tap a button to send it right to Facebook for all of their friends to see. Did you say or do something embarrassing at a party? Witnesses can easily become instant broadcasters, and there's a good chance that some of their Facebook friends know you.

Did you casually mention something to a friend? Anything? They may mention it in a status update and instantly let all of their friends know about it. Whether or not they did this with any malicious intent is irrelevant. It happens. Human contact in general is a threat to your privacy. If you say or do anything that you truly want kept private, you better keep it to yourself or let people know you don't want others to know about it (and hope that they care).

Facebook is really just an extension of the web itself, when it comes to privacy. The same rules apply to YouTube, MySpace, Twitter, blogs, or any other platforms where users can communicate to the public (or even to a closed network).

The privacy issues that exist now have existed the entire time the web has been around. It's only the pace of sharing, which has accelerated. Years ago, someone could have easily created a website about you if they knew how to create a website at all. Status updates and blog posts are just easier. Smartphones make them almost like a reflex for some people - and the smartphone market continues to grow rapidly.

Mark Zuckerberg has taken a lot of flack over the privacy concerns that have arisen around Facebook of late, as well as his own stance on privacy in general, but no matter how much Facebook or any other social networking entity on the web tweaks its privacy, your privacy will never truly be ensured - unless you hide from society completely.

There are pros and cons to the manner in which technology evolves (and continues to do so). Regardless of your stance on privacy, it's pretty clear that things aren't going to be slowing down anytime soon, and a decreased sense of privacy is simply a side effect.

Facebook Privacy and Business

Apart from the grand scheme of things, Facebook's new settings should make some users more comfortable, and the more comfortable Facebook users are the better off Facebook and anyone who considers it a significant part of their business strategy will be.

"What these privacy advocates don’t get is that Facebook, like Google, isn’t free," says SeeWhy Founder Charles Nicholls, who has written about the subject. "It's a massive service that needs to be paid for, and that service is going to be funded by a multi-billion dollar advertising business, just as Google is. This is the price you pay for using a 'free' service. Facebook ‘Like’ is central to this strategy and equally important for ecommerce."

Many (myself included) have speculated that Facebook's Open Graph could lead to the company launching an AdSense-like product down the line, with the ability to target users all over the web based on their personal interests. It could be very powerful. Mark Zuckerberg's response to the notion that any of the company's recent moves are geared toward advertising (via VentureBeat):

There is also this idea going around that if people share information openly that we can use it better for ad targeting. But advertisers don't get any information from the system. We don’t give your information to them. We target all the ads ourselves. And it doesn’t matter who you're sharing with, whether it's your friends or the public. It doesn't affect the ads at all.

Does that change anything? Couldn't an AdSense-like product still work without the advertisers getting personal information from users and letting Facebook do the targetintg?

Regardless of whether or not such an ad network is ever actually released, e-commerce businesses have a lot to gain from Facebook's Open Graph.

"From an ecommerce point of view, what’s not to like here?" asks Nicholls. "It's now really easy for your visitors to share what they like on your website with their friends, without so much as a login. The ease of use and simplicity of the 'Like' button makes it a sure-fire hit, as long as users can get comfortable with privacy."

Comfort or no comfort from users, the Open Graph is definitely a hit with businesses, and judging from all the "liking", "recommending", etc. going on around the web, privacy may really not be as big of a concern among general users as it has been made out to be in the media.
