Petrol Prices Have Finally Fallen in Singapore

May 24, 2011 · Posted in Economy · 2 Comments 

Petrol Prices

Good news for Singapore motorists and motorcyclists. Fuel prices have fallen… by 3 cents! Anyway, this definitely calls for a (passive) celebration. Fuel prices have hardly seen a drop for a long time here; all the while it has been increasing.

According to The Straits Times, Caltex and SPC offer the cheapest grade 92-octane petrol, now at a price of $1.99 per litre. Both 95-octane grade costs $2.04 per litre, but the 98-octane grade costs $2.09 per litre for SPC and $2.175 per litre for Caltex (which is also at the same price as that of Shell’s V-Power).

Caltex reduced its prices by three cents a litre across the board with Singapore Petroleum Co (SPC) and Shell following. Not sure about Esso, but I presume it will also follow suit.

MobileOne (M1) Offers Free Local Calls and Messages

May 24, 2011 · Posted in Inventory · Comment 

MobileOneAfter my rant on MobileOne (M1) last week, the Telco company has decided to put in some efforts to appease their customers and users by offering free local calls, text messages (SMS) and multimedia message (MMS) for a period of 24 hours.

This “great” offer will take place on Wednesday, May 25th, 2011 from 00:00hrs to 23:59hrs, and will apply for ALL M1 customers. Consumers will not be charged for any local calls or messages made on this day. Furthermore, calls and messages will not be deducted from the free airtime minutes and messages of the customers’ existing plan.

This comes about when M1 encountered a technical glitch last Wednesday, where a number of M1 users were unable to connect to the network for several hours.

For more information, please read more from this link.

M1 Mobile Services Disrupted for Hours

May 19, 2011 · Posted in Inventory · 1 Comment 

M1

This is completely unacceptable! MobileOne (M1) mobile service was affected for several hours yesterday, lasting since morning till late afternoon. I know that because I could not make outbound calls, receive inbound call, send or receive text messages.

M1, however, did issue a statement of apology for the inconvenience. Was that enough?

We, consumers and end-users of M1, paid a sum of money, under the contractual agreement for the mobile, data and network services to be provided to us. When it comes to payment, there is no exception in the bill. On the other hand, where is the jurisdiction when M1 fails to deliver the service it promises in the contract that we sign.

The failure of their customer management server is an issue of M1, not consumer. We are not expected to be liable or responsible for its failure; M1 is. This disappointing part is, none of us get compensated for the loss of service.

Telco should bear full responsibility and compensate all consumers and end users for the service failure!

AdSense Earnings Drop by 20 Percent in April

May 1, 2011 · Posted in Radio · 1 Comment 

Google Adsense LogoMy April Report is out. Google AdSense earnings has dropped by a significant twenty percent (20%), as compared to the previous month. With reference to my last post on prediction of Google AdSense earnings, the result has proven to be true.

Part of the reasons for its decline is due to the shortage of quality posts made to some websites. However, that substantial decrease could not be so significant if not the giant search engine has done something to their back-end system.

Google is based on complex mathematical algorithm to ensure best search result is delivered to end-user. The company has survived on this fundamental principal for the past 10 years. It is without a doubt that it would lead to speculation Google has heavily tweaked its algorithm on its Google AdSense engine, especially the pie of shared earning that goes to the multinational company (MNC) has become overly apparent in its Terms and Conditions.

If this continues, I will have to search for alternative sources to fund my server and websites.
