Youtube And Advertisement

I'm kind of a big fan of youtube. Not so many of my friend enjoy youtube as I do. I enjoy it much with my TMnet streamyx 4mb package. Lots of people said the connection sucks but as long as I can watch youtube without waiting for buffering and play my xbox live, I'm good with it.

When people busy logging into the internet and check their facebook status, I log into the internet to watch new video from my subscribe channel. I enjoyed watching Smosh, Nigahiga, Ray william johnson, Wongfu, some science channel, cooking channel, and a lot more in youtube. I believe that youtube is kind of a TV for me. Almost everything including commercial I can watch with a click.

The best thing is you can choose whatever you want to watch and there is no waiting for a commercial to end like in the television. ... Wait.. Is it?

Recently I found some disturbing changes in youtube. I don't mind youtube sticking a few ads here and there inside their page but this time I'm really disappointed because youtube put an advertisement video for every video that I click.

There is a button that you can click to skip the ads but you have to wait like 5 seconds before that button appear. Means you still have to wait 5 seconds before you can watch your clicked video. 5 seconds is such a waste of time for me.

What is wrong with youtube? Isn't they had enough money from the conventional ads they use to have? Why must they interrupt my initial 5 seconds and force me to click second time to skip the ads? I hate it so much.

I believe google keeps their page looks less advertising by selling keywords and keep everything simple. That is what people like about google. I thought youtube is under google now and why youtube can't find better way to sell their ads? Not stealing 5 seconds from their users.

So disappointed with youtube. I hope that they find a better solution to sell their ads. If it maintain like this, I may let youtube go in the future.

  1. I was annoyed by the short ads on the opening of the video in youtube. It reminds me of megaupload video. I guess YouTube marketing is getting more and more responsive lately so they decided to do so but the good part of YouTube now is that they had launch it in Malaysia and so I'm sure more and more local Youtubers will rise up and try to earn a living out of the ads revenue :)

  2. Yeah. Sure. Launch in Malaysia. The worst part is after it was launch in Malaysia, when you click the link Popular which supposed to bring you to the popular video today and all it has there is Malaysian political video. Ucapan anwar lah, protest israel lah. annoying.

Astro Remote volume not responding

I have been looking around for solution when my Astro beyond remote start having problem where it does not want to control the volume of my astro anymore.

The strange thing is, the remote seem fine and only the mute and volume won't respond.

After realizing that the remote cost around rm250 to be replaced, I start thinking that this is not an ordinary remote control.

After a few minutes of research (only) I found out that this remote can be programmed to be synchronize with our television.

Hmmm. So the remote problem must be cause by it some programming error.


Turn out of you have similar problem like this, all you had to do is to press OK button with volume down until it bleep 4 times then it will be ok. This method canceled the volume control for the television ( meaning that you can only control the tv volume not the decoder).

Later I found out that if you want, you can use your tv only volume to control the astro thus no hassle to have 2 remote at the same time.

A Guide to Apply for Master in Pathology (Mpath) 
1. Make up your mind. I've seen a few of my friends who apply for this pathway and get confused before it begin. Ask yourself, are you really interested in Pathology? Do you know what pathology is? Do you know what kind of work are you going to do in Pathology. 
Most of the time, people thought pathology MO or specialist were all just sitting down drinking coffee and chit chat all day long. No work to do. Think again. The best thing to do is to get yourself into the department itself. Work as a pathology MO first, in a few…

Becoming a medical officer in Malaysia: Are you still a real doctor?

To recap from my previous post, a person must completed 5-6 years study in medical school, pass their professional exam, enter 2 years house officer training program, pass their exam and completed their logbooks, then a person can now be called a fully registered Medical Officer / Medical Doctor.

A Journey of a Junior Medical Officer

After 7 or 8 years experience, a house officer will be given a full registration under Malaysian Medical Council. This registration process is a lengthy process which takes up months before it will be completed. Most doctors will apply for full registration 4 months before they finish their house officer training program. The registration will be processed only if all the criteria has been fulfilled by the house officer which includes log book, review by a board of specialist, no disciplinary action recorded, and other paper work stuff that need to be settled. A full registration means that the doctor now can practice as a doctor independently. They can wo…
