This may sounds straight forward and trivial, but think again. I tried changing my dictionary settings in my Microsoft Office for Word, Power Point and Excel. Because this is not something you will do everyday, it took me 2 hours figure it out! That's why I've decided to blog about it for future reference and for all of your who needs it.

Recently in the electronic consumers market, I realised 3D televisions seems to become more popular. I have to confess that I am not a fan of 3D television, but I do enjoy a good 3D movie. However, if you ask me to get a 3D television, currently I will say NO. Although 3D shows does give me that little more entertainment, but requiring me to wear that 3D glasses every time I want to watch a show is not practical and inconvenient. In short, I am lazy to wear the 3D glasses. YouGov.com reported that from their recent survey, 57% would watch more 3D movies if they did not have to wear 3D glasses. So I'm glad I'm not the odd one out.
I'm conducting a poll below to see how many of you will be interested to get a 3D television if money and space is not an issue, or may be you already have one.
I think the Montague folding bikes are cool and stylish. Surprise I was, when I saw this guy setting up his all white Montague SWISSBIKE X series folding bike during my trip to Shanghai, China! Since we are talking about bikes, I would take this opportunity to blog about the Lunartic Hubless Wheel bike.
I came across Lunartic Hubless Wheel bike while browsing for cool bikes. This is a hub-less rear wheel bicycle designed across the Atlantic, in England, at Loughborough University. At the moment, I would really like to see this bike being taken into production. You can have a look at the prototype of the bicycle in the video below.
Recently I did a compilation of my blog's user statistics to investigate the type of Web users visited my blog. These records were taken between 19 July 2010 and 12 Nov 2010, a snapshot of the last 4 months. The percentages of the types of browsers my visitors use include Microsoft IE (55.19%), Firefox (28.63%), Safari (8.61%), Google Chrome (6.85%), Opera (0.62%), and others (0.10%). Noting that I mainly, interchangeably use Firefox and Safari, so from the data it gives a good reflection of my actual users.
After all the hype about Web browsers wars between Firefox, Google Chrome, and Microsoft IE; which many "tech savvy" users can witness, the data presented here still shows that Microsoft IE is still much ahead than the rest. Though I not saying that their users rate have not fallen, but much of the users of the Web still trust and believe in them.
