Buildings : World Tallest Building, The Burj Tower

I came across a website few days ago about the construction of the Burj Tower in Dubai. It will be the tallest building in the world once it was completed. The height of this tower is about 800 to 950 meters from the ground and going to have about 160 – 189 floors. Imagine standing at the highest floor looking down the whole Dubai. I think my leg will shake standing there. Scare of height :P. It is expected to complete in August 2009. I looked at the construction picture from day 1 until now. It was just marvelous. Humans always do fascinating things and this is one of it. During the Ming Dynasty, the Chinese made one of the most fascinating structure which is the Great Wall of China that stretch over 3000 miles long. No doubt after the completion of Burj Tower, there will be another project that will build another tallest building…

High Definition: Looking For Blu-Ray player?

High definition videos or in short HD videos getting more and more popular. You can easily get the HD content from major video store in town. Some people may ask Why HD? What good about HD? Just a short comparison between DVD and Blu-Ray (or in short BD – is a Disc format that support HD format). DVD video maximum size is 640 x 480 and BD video maximum size is 1920 x 1080. You can see the different in size for both format. So with BD, you can see a lot of details in your favourite movies that you never see before or will never see it in DVD format. But of coz you will need a HDTV to view your HD movies.

Now the question which Blu-Ray player to get and in good bargain. I did a survey around on Blu-ray Players and PS3 (a game console which can be used to play game and watch Blu-Ray movies). In Malaysia, a standard BD player costs about RM 3000 and upwards and a PS3 costs about RM 1300. I personally thinks that PS3 is a better bargain for Blu-Ray player. There is one good point about PS3 which is you can upgrade its firmware for better support easily. Sony constantly releasing new PS3 firmware version to add functionality to its PS3.
