Kim Dotcom, the billionaire founder of the Megaupload file sharing service have now resurfaced on promoting a new site called Megabox, a file sharing service and to discover new music via his new Twitter account @KimDotcom. Kim is currently awaiting an extradition case from New Zealand, as this billionaire is wanted by the FBI in the United States for various charges of copyright infringement. Apparently this has not deterred the man from coming up with new and innovative ideas to make money online through offering premium services from downloading and streaming content online.
On Thursday, I attended the Google Analytics Master Class (GAMC) at Hilton Hotel which was held for the first time in Kuala Lumpur. According to the organisers, it was previously held in Singapore in 2009 and when they saw that many Malaysians flew in to Singapore to attend the seminar, they thought that it would be a good idea to have the GAMC in both Kuala Lumpur and Singapore this year. Apparently they didn’t expect the seminar to have such a huge turnout. I, too, along with my friend Malcolm had to wait in a very long queue to enter the hall.
Took a photo of myself, since I was bored waiting for the event to start.
Got the news that Facebook has recently acquired a Malaysian company called Octazen Solutions. Why would they do that, I have no idea. I did not even know the existence of this company until this acquisition was announced on various tech sites. According to the meta description of the site, Octazen offers “Contact Importer and Viral Invite Scripts in PHP/Java/.NET/Ruby/CFM for Yahoo, Hotmail, Gmail, MySpace, Twitter, Friendster and more.” What Facebook will do with such a script is definitely unknown and is anyone’s guess.
In any case, it is always a great thing to see a Malaysan company being successful to the extent that a US giant has to own it. Their product must be very good to have been worthy of such an acquisition.
In the past years, many people have seen the steady climb of the Internet as a staple in almost all sectors of the human life. In more ways than people know, there are only few individuals making money from people who visit the Internet regularly. Some of these people don’t even know the basic of how to make websites but they make good money just by buying an existing website and operating it or reselling it to a different person.
If you are jobless or somebody who would want to try other business, you can try buying and selling websites. This can be a lucrative business if you make the following considerations.
There is good news for those who are looking for a debit card to do online transactions or to verify their PayPal accounts. From a communique that I have recently been privy to (made available to me by a little bird who works in Maybank Credit Card Centre), I was made to understand that Maybank is going to activate their internet transaction acceptance feature for their VISA debit card on the 14th of March 2009. However, this activation is only for internal purposes and the public will only be able to enjoy this feature a week later.
Currently, the Maybank VISA debit card is only able to make purchases offline and does not work with any internet transaction. The reason why Maybank delayed this feature for so long is because of card fraud and they needed to ensure that the security checks are in place.
