下雨天做的事

By , March 21, 2015 8:01 pm

没下雨,当然不能洗窗户的外部。
这是我认为理所当然的事。

但是最近发现,还真的有人会在大热天也做这件事。

也的确有朋友在提起这样的事,才恍然发现不在下雨天洗户外窗户,会影响楼下邻居。

想不到的事真多。
所以有时候不妨多想点。

外面一下起雨,老爸就立刻动起来,趁机抹窗户。

随便

By , July 13, 2014 11:49 am

如果你凡事都喜欢做主,应该最喜欢听到这样的回应:“随便”。

如果你觉得你凡事都没太多、太大的意见,最常说的回应就是“随便”。

“随便回答”的时候,请看对方是谁。

问:去哪里吃饭?
答:随便。
如果两人都不想做主,久而久之,就哪儿也不想去了。

问:要不要煮排骨?
答:随便。
其实问的人不知道要煮什么的时候,听到了这样的回答,还煮不煮?

相处久了,你会知道,有些人的“随便”,其实是“好”的意思。
又有些人,“随便回答”之后,其实心里觉得“不好”,于是接下来会表现出不喜欢的情绪。

那为什么要“随便回答”呢?

相处之道,真的不能太随便。

年末总是这样开始的

By , December 6, 2013 4:49 pm

岁末。

开始有人写年度关键字、开始有人细数这一年做了什么、没做什么。

但要如何进行‘年度回顾’,总是有点困难。

特别是在脑袋很难静下来的每一天。

第一步:Relax

DNC – 你登记了吗?

By , December 2, 2013 1:20 pm

DNC

今天开始,不想接到推销电话、简讯、传真,可以去登记
不是马上生效,也不代表永远都不会接到传销的电话或简讯,请好好去读PDPC的说明。

以下是我特别关注的4项FAQ。看来,还需要很长的时间,才能把理清‘reasonable’这件事。

General
6. What is ‘deemed’ consent?

You are deemed to consent to the collection, use or disclosure of personal data by an organisation for a purpose if you voluntarily provide the personal data to the organisation for that purpose; and it is reasonable that you would do so.

For example, when you seek medical treatment in a medical facility, such as a clinic or hospital, and voluntarily provide your personal data, you would be deemed to have consented to the collection and use of your personal data by the medical facility hospital for that purpose.

9. What can I do if there is a breach?

If you come across a potential breach under the PDPA, you can contact the relevant organisation for clarifications. For further assistance, you may contact the Personal Data Protection Commission by phone or providing your feedback through email.

Collection, Use & Disclosure

1. How much of my personal data can an organisation collect, use or disclose about me?

Under the PDPA, organisations may collect, use or disclose personal data only for purposes that a reasonable person would consider appropriate in the circumstances and that you have been notified of by the organisation unless an exception under the PDPA applies.

In addition, the organisation must obtain your consent to such collection, use or disclosure, unless any exception under the PDPA applies.

In this regard, organisations, shall not, as a condition of supplying a product or service, require you to consent to the collection, use or disclosure of personal data beyond what is reasonable to provide the product or service. For example, an organisation that sells a consumer product should not require you to reveal your annual household income as a condition of selling you the product, although it may still ask you to provide such personal data as an optional field.

If the organisation wishes to collect any additional personal data, the organisation shall provide you the option of whether to consent to this.

Do Not Call Registry
20. If an organisation has obtained consent from me before I registered with the DNC Registry, can the organisation still send marketing messages to me?

Yes, the organisation may send marketing messages to your Singapore telephone number if it has obtained your clear and unambiguous consent to the sending of the marketing message, in written or other accessible form, regardless of when you registered your number with the DNC Registry.

If you change your mind, you may withdraw your consent from the organisation concerned. The organisation shall not prohibit you from withdrawing consent but this shall not affect the legal consequences arising from the withdrawal. The organisation shall inform you of the likely consequences to your withdrawal, and shall cease sending marketing messages to you.

什么是量化生活

fitbit
你对自己有多了解?

有人说:Facebook knows you better than what you know about yourself

虽然我对编写程序不了解,但相信上述是办得到的。

我们常常利用社交媒体平台,表达自己的喜好,所以只要懂拿数据做分析,你会喜欢看哪一部电影、买什么样的产品,绝对能被电脑程序整理出来。

科技很可怕,但科技又能帮我们审视自己的状态,就看我们是否懂得运用。

例如,戴上如Nike Fuelband、Fitbit这类的活动监视装置,就能量化你的生活,让你时刻了解自己的状态。

量化生活(Quantified Self) 是一个将个人日常生活中用输入、状态和表现这样的参数,将科学技术引入日常生活中的技术革命。其中输入是人体吸收的外界因素,例如消化的食物,空气质量等;状态是人体当前的特征,例如心情、arousal(皮肤电导)、blood oxygen levels(血氧饱和度)等;表现是人体表现的行为,分为心理上和物理上的表现。

The history of self-tracking using wearable sensors combined with wearable computing and wireless communication, dates back many years, and appeared, in the form of sousveillance (wearable physiological sensors, etc.) in the 1970s. The term “quantified self” appears to have been proposed by Wired Magazine editors Gary Wolf and Kevin Kelly in 2007 as “a collaboration of users and tool makers who share an interest in self knowledge through self-tracking.” In 2010, Wolf spoke about the movement at TED, and in May 2011 the first international conference was held in Mountain View, California.

在什么都能上网搜索、‘什么都能知道’的时代,我们还是燃起了需要了解自己的渴望。

Quantified Self这个概念吗,真的很酷。

户外报新闻

后面的观众,你为什么一直挥手啊?

—————————–
今天的狮城六点半新闻,变成一个户外零距离的新闻播报,大阵仗地穿插摄影棚内、商场几个户外播报地点。

在现场的观众,第一次看到主播现场播报,当然新鲜有趣。

电视上可看到,围观的人不介意上电视,主播在播报时,还有好几人在后方猛挥手,让电视机前的我十分分心。

新闻室,这样的零距离,有点干扰。
还好仅是今天的事。

不需要忠诚

By , September 18, 2013 12:19 pm

有多少的忠诚,是毫无条件不计回报的。

iPhone5s开放订购在即,跟朋友聊买不买的事,发现我们用同一家电信公司、同一个月费计划、没有超额消费、用同一款电话、合约差不多同样时间到期,她收到一个优惠简讯-只要重新签2年合约,买手机有$80折扣。

为什么我没有?

根据客服热线,折扣是由行销部处理,而据了解,并非提供给每位用户。还问,我是不是要求签新约优惠,说可以提供一个月免月费。

要问才有优惠,而且与$80折扣不相等。

我跟这家电信公司也有10多年了。

但我不是因为我付出忠诚而不满。

我有不换别家的理由--相比之下,我觉得这家提供的品质比较好。

即使提供更好的服务比留住所有用户重要,但他们认为差别待遇是不会被发现,还是被发现也不要紧?

还是,留住用户的确不再重要,反正,用户总是会因为生气而‘转台’,换了一轮,生别人的气了,又会回到他们身边?

没有得到回报的忠诚,终究也只是因为计算过后,发现没有更好的选择。

如果苹果不变大…

By , September 10, 2013 3:34 pm

apple-samsung

就快宣布iPhone5S了

有很多人希望它变大

可是大家心里都认为它不可能变大

要知道人口老化

Aunties Uncles 都已经在用 Samsung了

最重要是

管他Android 系统稳不稳、容不容易学

苹果再不变大

… 可能会变小
