Want To Buy A Car In Hong Kong? Answer These Two Questions First

Do you have plans to buy a car in Hong Kong? Some people may feel the need for it.   The truth is, you can easily get around through the public transportation system – which is actually one of the safest and most efficient in the world. You have a lot of options from taxis, rail, bus, or tram. You can even use the ferry to get to the different islands around Hong Kong. Thanks to the Octopus Card, you can choose to ride any of these without difficulty.   While the public transport may be the best in the world, having your own car is still quite convenient – especially when you have a child. You can choose to go anywhere you want and no rain or other weather disturbances will make it hard for you to get to your destination.   This is probably the sentiment of the car owners in Hong Kong. According to the data from the Transport Department, the number of new registrations in the region is steadily growing from 2011 to 2015. For the first quarter of 2016, it is slowing a bit and in some months, the new registrations are lower than the

‘Game of Thrones’ is proving itself to be leak-proof

TwitterFacebook

What is dead may never die — and what is Game of Thrones will never be defeated by leaks.

It’s been a rough ride for HBO recently. Like a White House administration that cannot stop leaking out of its “whatever,” the prestige TV mogul can’t seem to seal its faulty pipes. Yet somehow its most popular show stared those instruments of potentially devastating audience dropout and taunted: “What do we say to the god of death? Not. Today.”

Two weeks ago, hackers spoiled “The Spoils of War” by releasing one of Season 7’s most epic episodes a full two days before its official release. We urged true fans to wait until Sunday night to watch the dragonfire unleash — for their own good. Read more…

All the people (and things) Trump actually thinks are racist

TwitterFacebook

President Donald Trump has had an especially hard time convincing Americans he’s not racist this week.

What with blaming “many sides” and the “alt-left” after this weekend’s deadly violence in Charlottesville — despite white supremacists and neo-Nazis being at the heart of the protests against the removal of a Confederate statue — he’s making it pretty hard to believe otherwise. 

Trump received a great deal of backlash for refusing to directly condemn white supremacists, the KKK, and neo-Nazis until Monday, and that statement was undermined by his off-the-rails press conference a day later that once again blamed “both sides,” emboldening the KKK and white supremacists.  Read more…

Why Apple’s not going to sell an OLED TV

TwitterFacebook

It’s no secret Apple really, really wants to reinvent the TV. On his deathbed, Steve Jobs expressed great interest in fixing the crummy TV watching experience, telling his biographer Walter Isaacson that he had “finally cracked it.”

Jobs said he wanted to create an “integrated television set that is completely easy to use” and “would be seamlessly synced with all of your devices and with iCloud.”

In 2014, leakers and analysts repeatedly said Apple would release its own TV set, which many speculated could have been powered by Siri. No such Apple-branded TV was ever released and many believe Apple shelved it. Read more…

Not-so-sneaky kid tries to get past dad’s security cam

TwitterFacebook

One kid was practicing his secret agent skills to get past his dad’s security camera, and it didn’t really work out.

In a YouTube video posted by Jeremy Gabrysch, Gabrysch wrote that his elementary school-aged kids had been coming down “to party” in the middle of the night. 

The dad happened to bust the kids each time, but they didn’t know how. After spotting that there was a security camera hidden in the living room, the son decided to take matters into his own hands and tried to disable it by slithering on the floor so he’d go unseen. 

Unfortunately for him, he was definitely caught on camera trying his luck. Maybe next time the kids should just enjoy their parties in the daytime when it’s safe.   Read more…

Anderson Cooper breaks down exactly why Trump’s press conference should bother you

TwitterFacebook

The American public is still trying to process Donald Trump’s disastrous press conference on Tuesday, in which he defended those who marched in a white supremacist rally.

Obama’s Charlottesville response just became most-liked tweet in history

TwitterFacebook

Barack Obama may not be the president anymore but that’s not stopping him from making history.

In the wake of the deadly clash between neo-Nazi hate groups and protesters in Charlottesville, Virginia over the weekend, President Donald Trump’s usually eager Twitter fingers remained inactive for hours  while Obama rose to the challenge of addressing the nation.

Now, just days after the former president responded to the tragic violence with a powerful Nelson Mandela quote, his tweet has become the most-liked in history.

Instagram is updating its comments with conversation threads

TwitterFacebook

Today, Instagram announced a major upgrade to its comments section that will let people thread different conversations under a single post.

The feature was first reported as a test on Android apps earlier this summer, but now, the company is adding threaded comments to everyone’s accounts on both Android and iOS.

When users hit “reply” on a comment after today’s update, the comment will appear in a nested thread. Before the update, all replies lived in one column, making it difficult to have multiple conversations on the same post. Read more…
