eBay is full of fake 32GB SD, flash, and memory cards

After 2 weeks of waiting for my 32GB SD card from Hong Kong, I finally received it. Too bad, I waited for nothing, because I bought a fake SD card. It’s really deceptive, because if you check it in your PC or MAC, you’ll see that total capacity of 32GB.

But don’t let you eyes deceive you! If you’ll use the card and you exceeded 2GB, all of your other files will be corrupted. Because it’s really 2GB not 32GB. They just re-programmed or hacked it so that your computer will show you that it’s 32GB, but its total capacity only 2GB.

The latest version of the world known Internet Browser that sucks after Firefox and Chrome dominated the world wide web has attempted to take back its place in the browser war.

It’s September

Yes guys! It’s now September. I don’t know what to blog right now. I’m just happy that it’s September. Then after September, it will be October, then November, then December. After a few months, I’ll be having another summer vacation and I will be in my 3rd year in high school after that 2-month vacation.

I’ll be sharing more cool stuff about gadgets, social media and the web if I can think of something to write.

Top 288,945 sites in the world visualized with favicons

Others are saying that the top 300,000 websites in the world are visualized with favicons. But why my title is 288,945? Because I want to be specific, and there are only 288,945 favicons in this poster.

A large-scale scan of the top million web sites was performed in early 2010 by computer David Fifield and Brandon Enright who are bored one day and suddenly had an idea about collecting the favicons of top 1,000,000 websites around the world in a single poster. But these nerds failed to visualize all the top 1 million websites. Only 328,427 unique icons were collected, of which 288,945 were proper images.
