If you ain’t Apple Inc., or selling, marketing, venturing with anything that’s related to Apple Inc.
Drop that [i] crap.
You’re a joke.
Everyone must be scrambling to file their taxes in Malaysia for 2012 before the deadline of April 30th. But before you rush to it, here are a few hacks for your Malaysia tax.
1. Apple iPad is entitled to LHDN personal income tax relief but not Samsung Galaxy Tab.
Any tablet that includes a cellular phone feature that allows you to make a telephone call or text using telco services is consider a phone and not a tablet therefore you cannot claim. Please take note that my tablet suggestions are not limited to Apple iPad or Samsung Galaxy Tab.
2. Any broadband subscription including telco broadband service is claimable up to RM500 per year.
Broadband meaning your Streamyx, Unifi, Celcom, Digi, Maxis and also all smartphone broadband plans. This does not include your dial up 1515 or 1511.
3. E-books are consider books too.
Maximum claims of RM500 per year.
4. RM300 for short lifespan sports equipment.
This INCLUDES shuttle cocks, tennis balls, ping pong balls but EXCLUDE sport shoes, bicycle, swim wear and bla bla bla. (WTF RIGHT?)
5. Keep your receipts for 7 years.
Some receipts do fade away after a certain amount of time. My suggest would be take a picture of them and store them online – google drive, skydrive, dropbox, etc
Further inquires, please call to LHDN at 1300-88-3010 or email to firstname.lastname@example.org.

See that awesome icon. Let me teach you how to add it onto your home screen!
Visit https://jameslsy.com with your iOS device and click on the lower middle button.
Select ‘Add to Home Screen’
Entire desired name because ‘World is a Stage’ is just simply too long for the iOS home screen.
How to create it for my website?
Creating this icon is pretty easy. All you need is your favorite graphic editor.
1. Create a 114px x114px icon in PNG format. This is a retina screen proof icon size. You can get away with 72px x 72px for iPads and 57px x57px for other iOS devices. (always 72dpi and you don’t have to worry about the corners and the iconic reflective shine, iOS does it for you!)
2. Name this icon ‘apple-touch-icon.png’
3. Put this file in your root folder of your website or in your HTML add this line if you decided to name your icon differently

3 days after his passing. Everyone talks about his character & values & ideas. Here is what I admire about him.
“You know, I’ve got a plan that could rescue Apple. I can’t say any more than that it’s the perfect product and the perfect strategy for Apple. But nobody there will listen to me.” – Fortune, 1995
“If I were running Apple, I would milk the Macintosh for all it’s worth — and get busy on the next great thing. The PC wars are over. Done. Microsoft won a long time ago.” – Fortune, 1996
1996. The year he returned to Apple. The new era begins, Steve Jobs told us what we needed before we knew.
When he put an ‘i’ in Apple products and made them translucent – did you notice how the World embraces ‘i’ and translucent material on pen, staplers, tooth brush and just about any other daily life products.
When he unveiled iPod – did you notice how most MP3 player pioneers ran out of business and how we identify most MP3 players as iPod.
When he launched iTunes Store – did you notice how major recording companies were fighting the wrong battle with illegal downloads. Today iTunes is the largest online music retailer in the world.
When the first series of Mac VS PC ad was aired – did you notice how we all chuckled inside and nodding in agreement.
When the iPhone was launched – did you notice how every phone looks like iPhone shortly after.
When he showed us iPad – did you notice how every PC maker trampled over their own feet figuring how the hell they never thought of that.
Steve Jobs is not for a moment, he is forever.
My favorite story about him is from Vic Gundotra – Icon Ambulance
Favorite moments of Steve Jobs – Steve Job’s prank call to Starbucks during keynote speech.
“Steve Jobs, not for a moment but forever you have changed the face of technology. Human race thank you for your attention to detail in the things you do.”
If I were a Bitizen…
“If I were running Apple, I would milk the Macintosh for all it’s worth — and get busy on the next great thing. The PC wars are over. Done. Microsoft won a long time ago.”
“The products suck! There’s no sex in them anymore!”
“Nobody has tried to swallow us since I’ve been here. I think they are afraid how we would taste.”
—Shareholder meeting, 1998
“And boy, have we patented it!”
—Macworld, 2007 (iPhone introduction)
“Do you want to spend the rest of your life selling sugared water or do you want a chance to change the world?”
—As said to John Sculley, Odyssey: Pepsi to Apple
Being the richest man in the cemetery doesn’t matter to me … Going to bed at night saying we’ve done something wonderful… that’s what matters to me.
—The Wall Street Journal, 1993
