Here's another unverified rumour started by this letter below:-

Subject: iPhone Launch Period
Date: May 4, 2007
As previously announced, Apple and AT&T will soon debut the iPhone,
which combines a mobile phone, a widescreen iPod with touch controls, and
breakthrough internet communications into one small and lightweight
handheld device. The new AT&T has a multiyear, exclusive agreement to
provide U.S. service for the iPhone.
To ensure proper staffing during the product launch period, Sales personnel
planning to take approved time off are encouraged to schedule their
vacations before June 15 or after July 15 to participate in the iPhone
Previously approved vacation will be allowed where voluntary rescheduling
is not feasible
No additional vacation requests will be approved during the launch period
(6/15 – 7/15).
I want to thank you in advance for your understanding as this is likely to
be the biggest selling period we have seen in a few years.
I really can't wait to see an actual iPhone after all the hype it generated.
Then again, my Make$ Money$ got mentioned is an honour already. Just to make it clearer, I have made RM1,400 since nuffnang was launched.Chan Lilian or 5xmom actually makes big bucks from her 10 or more websites (mostly blogs) and she is quite a character. Very outspoken and quite popular judging from her 3000 unique visitors per day on one of her blogs. I can't even get 100 visitors :(
MALAYSIA'S economy probably started the year on
a slower note during the first quarter, mostly due to weaker external
demand, economists say.
They said the robust services sector, mainly
tourism activities, will likely offset the weaker performance recorded
by the manufacturing sector during the year's first four months.
Sam Peterson was arrested under a Michigan law barring access to anyone else's network without authorization; he is being prosecuted for using a cafe's free WiFi from his car. The cafe's WiFi network was reserved for customers – Peterson never came into the Union Street Café – and instead used its free WiFi from the comfort of his car, every single day. A police officer grew suspicious of Peterson and eventually questioned him as to what he was up to. "I knew that the Union Street had WiFi. I just went down and checked my e-mail and didn't see a problem with that," Peterson told a reporter.
Under Michigan's "Fraudulent access to computers, computer systems, and computer networks" law, Peterson's actions could result in a five-year felony and a $10,000 fine. However, prosecutors do not plan to throw the book at him, as they don't believe that Peterson was aware he was even breaking the law. Instead, he will pay a $400 fine and do 40 hours of community service, and the arrest will not go on his record. Coincidentally, the cafe owner that Peterson was leeching WiFi off of didn't even realize that what Peterson was doing was a crime at the time. Neither did the police officer. "I had a feeling a law was being broken, but I didn't know exactly what," said Sparta police chief Andrew Milanowski.
Hey if you are watching Pirates of the Caribbean 3 there may actually be real pirates in the cinema crowd! :)
Night vision used to catch film pirates. 28/05/2007. ABC News Online
Malaysian cinemas have found a powerful new weapon in their fight against movie pirates - military-style night vision goggles.
After showing people to their seats, trained ushers strap on the
goggles and scan darkened cinemas around the country to spot anyone
trying to make illegal copies of movies with hand-held video recorders
or mobile phones.
The Motion Picture Association, which is training Malaysian ushers
to catch the pirates, say cinemas have caught 17 people in the past two
months, during which Hollywood studios released blockbusters like
Spider-Man 3 and Pirates of the Caribbean.
Wow 17 people already caught! Has anybody seen the ushers wearing those goggles? And in which cinemas? TGV?

Malaysia's prime minister felt weak and appeared to totter during a public function and had to be held up by officials, raising health concerns about the 67-year-old leader.
Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi later dismissed rumors that he had fainted while attending the outdoor function in the northern state of Perak, and attributed the incident to heat and lack of sleep.
