When It Comes to Gadgets, How Old is REALLY Obsolete?

This story shows you how much people nowadays care about the latest trend in technology market. By people, I mean all of us – especially the millenials- who earn a living either by securing a proper, socially and morally acceptable job or robbing others while there’s no job available.

A man robbed by two men in New York‘s Central Park said they returned his cellphone when the outdated gadget apparently failed to meet their standards.

Kevin Cook, one of two men robbed by the duo shortly after midnight Saturday, said one mugger displayed a gun and said he would shoot the victims if they made any noise, WINS-AM, New York, reported Monday.

The robbers took a cellphone, a briefcase and a wallet containing about $114 cash. But Cook said one of the robbers gave him back his phone.

“He just took a look at it and he didn’t recognize it at all. I just assumed that he couldn’t make any money off of it. So he handed it back to me and a minute later I was able to call 911 and get the whole thing started,” Cook said.

Cook said there turned out to be an upside to his outdated 2010 LG Quantum. It’s shocking how care a criminal cared about the gadget newness.

“It’s like, finally a pro for having something out of date,” he said.

But look at the bright side. Now we know that it’s much safer for us to go out anywhere with antique phones in the pocket than having sleek cutting-edge smartphones.

And now on my question in the title, how old is outdated when it comes to gadgets in fact? If a three-year-old phone is seen worth a spot at the nearby museum, or a recycle bin, how about a 7-year-old Motorola Razr or a decade-old Nokia 3315?

Yet if I’m asked, I’d say that could be 2 years and because the increasingly faster pace of tech giants encourages more new gadgets to get released, the time span of a gadget’s coolness keeps shrinking.

As for me, I’ve got a Samsung Galaxy Nexus for more than a year but now that more new gadgets are coming like the inundating flood of Danube riber in the middle of summer, I feel like this handset is llike a relic.

Au Revoir, Android (On How Uncool Android Has Become)

‎Having an Android handset has never been a disappointment like this. As more and more people have Android phones on earth, one thing you must know is that you should be ready if your handset turns obsoletely unupgradable within 1-2 years of use. Yes, it costs us cheap as hell but if you don’t want to have a pricey smartphone that will end up too soon in a landfill, or even worse, left unused in the drawer though actually still it can function, you’d better find any other alternatives. Such as Apple’s iPhone. Ahem…

I know BlackBerry sucks when it comes to apps, ecosystem, and so on, but admit it, even if you think it sucks a lot, the security is much better. That’s why Obama doesn’t use Android or iPhone. Because the security of BlackBerry is better! How come? Thanks to the much fewer apps it provides on BlackBerry World! A security expert says the more apps a platform has, the higher the security risk means. Within an app, comes also a bunch of security flaws that are maybe exploited by hackers.

Android is way too unsecure for sure. Look at the uncurated, unfiltered Google Play, which is filled with fake applications for anyone to download. As Nathaniel Mott of Pando Daily puts it some days ago, “Android can sometimes seem like a no-win product for Google, especially where security is concerned.” And I can hardly believe how ignorant Google is to the cyber safety of older Android handsets owners. They pretty much don’t care.

Mott says again:

“The company can either assert more control over the platform and risk the alienation of its manufacturing partners, or it can leave things alone and receive criticism when security vulnerabilities aren’t fixed in a timely manner — if they’re ever fixed at all. This problem is highlighted by Google’sinability to fix several security vulnerabilities in the WebView component included with versions of the platform before the release of Android 4.4 “KitKat” in October 2013. As the company’s engineers told the developer of the Metasploit Project after he emailed them about the newly-discovered vulnerabilities: If the affected version [of WebView] is before 4.4, we generally do not develop the patches ourselves, but welcome patches with the report for consideration. Other than notifying OEMs, we will not be able to take action on any report that is affecting versions before 4.4 that are not accompanied with a patch. It’s not that Google doesn’t want to fix the vulnerability — it’s that Android was designed in such a way that it can’t fix the problem itself. Manufacturers have to develop their own fixes, or decide to send Google’s updates to their devices because they’re responsible for the software installed on their smartphones. (Carriers also have some input.) The only problem? Manufacturers often stop sending updates to older devices after a certain period of time because they’re focused on newer products. That has hurt consumers in the past, like when Google revealed thatpeople using older Android devices will remain vulnerable to the infamous Heartbleed bug until manufacturers release a fix. This problem is further exacerbated by the fact that many manufacturers never update older devices to more recent versions of Android. After all, if they can’t be bothered to release security updates, why go through the trouble of working on a much larger Android update? So even though Google is working on this issue, it will be years before consumers benefit. Google is trying to do the right thing, but it made a mistake when it sacrificed control over Android for the sake of market share. Now its customers are paying the price, and because its name is attached to Android despite its lack of say over how manufacturers use the platform, it could face backlash for the perception of it not caring about consumers.‎” (Nathaniel Mott)

I ditched my Samsung Galaxy Nexus 2 months ago. Not that it defuncted or started to fall apart, but I just develop a new interest in iPhone. The Nexus 2 and iPhone 4S don’t differ much but one thing I notice is the fact that you are less likely to find a malware, or crapware on App Store. And I have a BlackBerry for a blogging and writing purpose (this is the thing I am writing this very blog post on). So I don’t quite care about the apps on my BlackBerry Q5. As long as it can work well to blog and draft my news articles on the go, why should I download crappy apps?

iPhone dan Android Memang Canggih tapi BlackBerry Lebih Aman dari Peretasan

Anda boleh saja mencibir para pemilik BlackBerry. Mengatai mereka “goblok”, “kuno”, “ketinggalan zaman”, bahkan “alay” sekalipun. Tetapi jangan salah, keamanan perangkat berpapan ketik fisik itu malah lebih baik daripada iPhone dan ponsel Android yang berlayar sentuh lebar dan lapang yang digilai pengguna ponsel saat ini.

Saya juga seorang pengguna BlackBerry. Saya menggunakan perangkat ini setelah tren itu luntur. Saat tak banyak orang memakainya inilah saya justru menemukan kenyamanan menggunakan BlackBerry. Q5 yang saya gunakan memiliki papan ketik yang lebih nyaman dari ponsel pintar lainnya yang sejenis, LG Pro. Kenyamanan papan ketiknya sungguh-sungguh lebih baik dari brand lainnya.

Menurut laman Slate.com, bahkan pejabat negara sekelas Barack Obama pun hanya menggunakan perangkat BlackBerry. Ia tak diizinkan memakai iPhone dan Android. Mengapa? Tentunya Anda amat penasaran.

iPhone yang mengunggulkan ekosistem iOS yang mapan dan telah dilengkapi ratusan ribu aplikasi itu ternyata memiliki kelemahan. Apalagi bagi Anda yang mengutamakan keamanan informasi yang peka dan penting dari pihak ketiga yang tidak diinginkan. Dalam laporan Spiegel, dikatakan bahwa makin banyak sebuah sistem operasi memiliki aplikasi, artinya makin banyak pula celah keamanan yang bisa dimanfaatkan peretas (hackers).

Masih mau pakai iPhone dan Android? Ya, masih. Kan saya bukan Obama.

BlackBerry Still Rocks, so Do iPhone and Android

“Still a huge fan of BlackBerry?”‎he mocked me while I had my handset in hand. I was there, eating my meal and guess what, blogging (now you all know why I blog a little bit too frequently). On my BlackBerry, I find it more convenient to type because the keyboard is still cute and wildly functional to me.

It got me thinking:”Why are people so mean to me just because I’m (and will be) using BlackBerry?”‎ I love it for a strong reason: blogging.

At work, I have a bunch of coworkers who are, let me call them this way, Android maniacs. These folks are those typical fandroid who may be willingly married and having an intercourse with their Android handsets if these gadgets were alive.‎ They sneered as I was found to have a BlackBerry handset at work. “Disappointing… Downgrade,”murmured they.

I don’t get the point of this fanaticism.

On another occasion, when I lashed out on Facebook on how my iPhone failed to receive signals several times a day, ‎I was addressed by a distant friend who happened to think I was a hater of Apple products. He himself is a user of iPhone and would love to voluntarily endorse it to anyone he knows about the huge potential of iPhone in improving our lives. I thanked him for the nice words.

Android fans hate BlackBerry, saying it’s obsolete.
Android fans loathe iPhone, arguing it’s overpriced.
iPhone worshippers mock BlackBerry, claiming it has begun to be part of history.
iPhone worshippers dissed Android, accusing Google Play of having too many crappy and spammy apps to lure us.
BlackBerry owners love the joy of typing so hate the sensation of virtual keyboard use but still long for iPhone or Android to enjoy the web surfing.

This has got to cease. Because it’s ridiculously childish.

Buy anything which suits your needs best! Period.

There I said it.

How Samsung Agressively Eats up Rivals’ Market Share


If you reside in Jakarta and own an old iPhone or BlackBerry or even Samsung  handset tha, you already think obsolete, here’s the chance for you to literally get a new phone with less money to spend. Look at the list. And this is apparently Samsung’s latest strategy to remain on top of the sales chart in the market of Indonesia, where it already is favored by most smartphone consumers.

Several weeks ago, at an outlet in Kota Kasablanka Mall they applied the same strategy; i.e. allowing old phones owners to trade their handsets with Samsung latest products like Samsung Galaxy S5 or whatever Tabs they recently released. This week they invade Lotte Shopping Avenue Jakarta, trying hard to win the hearts of many office workers nearby to come and swap. Crap! I need to go there too!!! It’ll last only till September 30th.

If you’re sick with small screens of iPhones, you might find this is your chance to convert.

When iOS 8 Gets Installed on iPhone 4S

‎It’s out of sheer curiosity. So I updated my operation system though I have been warned the iPhone 4S would work a bit more slowly. Let it be. Come what may. ‎

Here we go! Thanks to Jennifer Lawrence, now we have a more secure operation system. Prior to using your iPhone 4s with iOS 8 on it, you must set 3 extra layers of security in the form of security questions. IMG_3943.PNG

Apple wants it way more secure by requiring you provising another email address. Nice.


Oh and this!


A friend with iPhone 5S commented on my experiment of installing iOS 8 but well, for the sake of better security, why not?! He argued no one wanted to hack my phone. Leaking nude photos of mine is impossible simply because I never snap any of it.

As for the phone battery durability after the installation of iOS 8, I guess there’s no significant improvement or degradation. The battery lasts pretty much like before. The speed of web surfing is also not considerably lowering. At large, it’s not that bad!

BBM Mulai ‘Umbar’ PIN Anda ke Pengguna BBM Lain?

There’s no free lunch. Menjadi seorang pengguna layanan jejaring sosial saat ini memang butuh kesabaran. Mengapa? Karena gratis dan praktisnya jejaring sosial harus ditebus dengan privasi yang terusik tanpa peringatan.

Seperti yang terjadi pada saya beberapa hari lalu.

Tiba-tiba PIN BBM saya mendapatkan notifikasi baru yang menunjukkan seseorang sudah menambahkan saya sebagai temannya. Tunggu, siapa orang ini? Saya tidak merasa mengenalnya. Dan memang ia juga tidak mengenal saya.

Usut punya usut, si pengguna BBM di iPhone itu baru mendapatkan pembaruan aplikasi yang menawarkan pertemanan baru dengan kontak-kontak LinkedIn miliknya yang terintegrasi dengan daftar kontak smartphone berplatform iOS itu. Dan saya ada dalam daftar teman di LinkedIn orang tersebut. Saya tidak bisa memastikan kebenarannya karena saya kebetulan cuma menggunakan BlackBerry dan Android.

Terlepas dari benar tidaknya keterangan itu, saya masih bertanya bagaimana bisa LinkedIn dan BBM bekerja sama? Dan mengapa BBM dengan mudah mengumbar PIN saya ke orang lain? Tetapi kemudian setelah dipikir lagi, itu adalah salah saya sendiri yang menjadikan orang itu sebagai teman saya di LinkedIn. Untungnya, orang yang menambahkan saya menjadi temannya itu adalah orang yang baik-baik, tidak macam-macam, apalagi berniat negatif meski awalnya saya menaruh curiga. Benarkah karena fitur terbaru aplikasi BBM for iOS atau apa?

Bagaimana dengan Anda? Apakah mengalami hal serupa?

Trik Blogging via BlackBerry Tanpa Install Aplikasi WordPress

BlackBerry, ponsel ‘relatif pintar’ yang kerap menjadi bulan-bulanan pengguna smartphone lain ternyata bisa membuat blogger jadi lebih produktif. Alasannya tentu adalah tombol qwerty-nya yang masih terlalu nyaman untuk digadaikan dengan layar sentuh.

Jika Anda suka blogging di platform WordPress (baik wordpress.com yang gratis dan praktis atau wordpress.org yang juga gratis tetapi memerlukan lebih banyak pengetahuan teknis saat instalasi dan pemeliharaan) dan memiliki sebuah ponsel BlackBerry, jangan sia-siakan BlackBerry hanya untuk bertukar pesan di BlackBerry Messenger saja. Dan jika Anda termasuk orang yang seperti saya (tidak terlalu suka ribet dengan upgrade sistem operasi BlackBerry yang justru kadang membuatnya bermasalah), tak perlu menginstal aplikasi WordPress di BlackBerry Anda. Setahu saya makin minim aplikasi, makin minim risiko ngadat. Dan saya juga tidak mengupgrade sistem operasi setelah tahu risiko yang harus dibayar jika upgrade tidak berakhir mulus dan berbagai gangguan menjengkelkan lainnya.

Akan tetapi ada satu fitur sederhana yang terlupakan banyak blogger WordPress. Fitur itu adalah “post by email”, yaitu mengunggah tulisan cukup melalui email. Dan karena BlackBerry memiliki email sebagai fungsi dasarnya, tentu kita bisa menggunakannya jika kondisi tidak memungkinkan untuk membuka laptop di tengah jalan atau diburu waktu atau sekadar ingin menulis di blog kesayangan tetapi tak ada koneksi internet yang stabil di musim hujan seperti sekarang.

Your BlackBerry is your savior, bloggers!

Simak saja prosedur berikut untuk mengaktifkan fitur simpel “post by email” ini di akun WordPress.com Anda (jadi ini BUKAN untuk akun blog yang menggunakan software blogging WordPress.org dengan hosting sendiri. Saya belum tahu ada kemiripan atau tidak dengan prosedur aktivasi fitur tersebut di sana).

Langkah 1: login ke wordpress.com dan masuk ke dasbor, temukan tab “Setting” dan klik

Langkah 2: temukan tab “Writing” dan klik

Langkah 3: temukan tab “post by email” dan klik

Langkah 4: akan ditemukan kalimat
“You can publish posts using emails with the post by email feature. To enable this visit your My Blogs page and create a secret address” (Anda bisa mengunggah artikel via email dengan fitur ini. Untuk mengaktifkannya, kunjungi laman web ‘My Blogs’ dan buat alamat email rahasia). Jadi logikanya, kita harus membuat alamat email rahasia yang kita bisa jadikan perantara dan hanya kita yang bisa mengetahuinya agar akses unggahan ke blog kita tidak dimiliki sembarang orang. Alamat email ini dihasilkan secara acak dan agak sukar diprediksi karena memang hakikatnya agar tidak mudah ditemukan orang yang tidak berhak mendapat akses.

Langkah 5: temukan nama blog (jika blog Anda di 1 akun wordpress ada lebih dari satu), dan klik.

Langkah 6: aktifkan fitur “post by email” dengan 1 klik kiri, dan muncul nama email rahasia, catat (saran saya buat entri tersendiri di kontak BlackBerry, misalnya “my blog”). Jika tidak suka dengan alamat email rahasia pemberian WordPress itu, klik “regenerate” sampai menemukan yang lebih cocok.

Langkah 7: cobalah mengetik satu tulisan di email pada BlackBerry, jika ada gambar dan video yang mau ditayangkan bersama tulisan, lampirkan saja seperti attachment file biasa. Tentu harus sadar dengan kemampuan perangkat, artinya jika Blackberry hanya bisa 2G, jangan dipaksa mengunggah video yang ukurannya besar sekali. Alamatkan tulisan ke email rahasia yang sudah dicatat tadi sebagai, misalnya, “my blog” di daftar kontak Anda.

Sebenarnya ada lagi cara untuk mengelompokkan artikel yang diunggah berdasar kategori dan memberikan tags pada artikel, tetapi caranya agak rumit dan tidaklah sekrusial esensi dari tulisan/ konten Anda. Kategori dan tag bisa dilakukan setelah menemukan PC atau laptop atau sambungan Internet yang lebih stabil.

Untuk Anda yang ingin blogging lebih dinamis via BlackBerry, ini adalah salah satu solusi. Selamat mencoba!

On The Dark Side of Entrepreneurship: Arrogance, Unkindness and Being a Total Jerk

I tell you, entrepreneurship not only brings money to you but also brings out the worst in you. You may think I’m ranting groundlessly but that holds true in a (relatively huge) number of cases.

Only this afternoon, I heard sickening news from my fellow worker. He offered this generous advertising offer to one of the best culinary franchises in the country. The 29-year-young owner himself answered the call. The company I work at is not a small emerging startup. It’s huge, but the Achilles heel of it is that it does not specializes in culinary businesses or advertising.  And he blew my coworker off just like that. The highly pragmatic CEO asked if he would get what from the ad. “What benefits can you deliver to us for certain? Can you guarantee?”  My hunch is the man was talking like a boss to my coworker. I can tell that from the way my coworker told the story. It was a tragic phone call to him.

I, along with probably millions of people in the country, know who this man is actually. We know him by the well-known franchise. I knew also they are now aiming to expand overseas, too. But in spite of all the success, does he has the right to dish a company, which happens to be a lot bigger than him? I don’t know. I don’t  wish to be judging. I’m a yogi and being judgmental is not taught in our class.

So I found myself reading this aspiring writeup nicely crafted by Vinod Khosla, a far more seasoned entrepreneur and investor in the mecca of entrepreneurship ‘universe’, Silicon Valley, than our cocky franchisor previously mentioned. He nicely put there, “What matters is that you don’t have to make the above tradeoffs.” The tradeoffs Khosla meant refers to the proposition which Ben Austen of WIRED.com wrote, that  “you can either be a jerk and successful or decent and mediocre.” A very tough choice uh?

Austen points out the two extreme poles of being an entrepreneur which embodies in the figures of two Steves: Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak. These two Steve are perfect models of the proposition above. Jobs was a jerk and damn successful as a world-calibre entrepreneur. His net worth was billions of dollars or more than that (couldn’t care less), which he couldn’t make use of to help cure the cause of the death (pancreas tumor, if I’m not mistaken) or regain his life which only spanned around 56 years. Jobs, unlike other generous entrepreneurs, was depicted as someone with outstanding level of kindness and generosity. Arik Hesseldahl of BusinessWeek magazine stated that “Jobs isn’t widely known for his association with philanthropic causes”, compared to Bill Gates‘s efforts, as stated by Wikipedia.

And in the other side of the spectrum is Wozniak. As a scientist and programmer, Woz does ace academically. Look at his list of honorary doctorates:

Steve Wozniak’s Honorary Doctor of Engineering degrees

  • University of Colorado at Boulder — 1989
  • Kettering University — 2005
  • North Carolina State University — 2005
  • Nova Southeastern University — 2005
  • ESPOL University in Ecuador — 2008
  • Michigan State University — 2011
  • Concordia University in Montreal Canada — June 22, 2011
  • State Engineering University of Armenia — November 11, 2011
  • Santa Clara University — June 16, 2012

Besides all the achievements, Woz still alocates his time for charity and the like:

Since leaving Apple, Wozniak has provided all the money, as well as a good amount of on-site technical support, for the technology program in his local school district.[1] Un.U.Son. (Unite Us In Song), an organization Wozniak formed to organize the two US Festivals, is now primarily tasked with supporting his educational and philanthropic projects.[1] In 1986, Wozniak lent his name to the Stephen G. Wozniak Achievement Awards(referred to as Wozzie Awards), which he presented to six Bay Area high school and college students for their innovative use of computers in the fields of business, art and music.(Wikipedia)

So if I happen to be asked, which one I would like to become, I think I am inclined to becoming Mr. Wozniak. How about you? Have your say in the comment box below.

iPhone 4S Panaskan Otak 3 Kali Lebih Cepat dari Galaxy S3 (Infografis)

Image representing tawkon as depicted in Crunc...

Ingatkah Anda beberapa tahun lalu saat muncul kecemasan mengenai tingkat radiasi yang dikeluarkan ponsel kita? Saya bahkan tidak bisa mengatakan pada Anda berapa lama  sejak saya membaca teks FUD (penerjemah: Fear, Uncertainty, Doubt) mengenai bagaimana ponsel cerdas kita perlahan-lahan memanaskan otak kita menjadi gumpalan-gumpalan daging ayam berukuran besar. Saya tidak akan berbohong pada Anda semua. Kapanpun saya memegang perangkat Android ke dekat kepala untuk melakukan panggilan telepon, selalu ada suara dalam kepala saya yang mengatakan bahwa 1. saya bisa menderita kanker otak karena ini dan 2. “Redrum” (apapun artinya)

Kini saya menyimpulkan bahwa jika Anda pemilik Galaxy S3, peluang Anda menderita tumor dalam kepala jauh lebih rendah dari, katakanlah, menurut saya … seorang pengguna iPhone yang mungkin sedang dalam perjalanan menuju tempat praktik ahli syaraf terdekat dalam waktu dekat. Jangan masukkan hati perkataan saya ini. Mereka di Tawkon adalah pakar dalam bidang ini dan mereka baru-baru ini merilis sebuah infografis yang menjelaskan semua ini untuk Anda.

Tawkon menjadi sorotan beberapa waktu lalu saat mereka merilis sebuah aplikasi untuk iOS yang segera dihapus dari App Store setelah hasil pengukuran radiasi pada iPhone tidak terlalu menggembirakan. Jangan khawatir karena aplikasi yang didesain dengan indah ini bisa didapatkan di Play Store di mana Anda bisa memantau radiasi ponsel Anda dan bahkan membandingkan tingkat paparan Anda dengan teman-teman Anda. Mengasyikkan.

Kevin Rose Reveals “10 Steps to Having More Followers on Twitter”

Image representing iPhone as depicted in Crunc...
Image via CrunchBase

This post is actually titled “Ten Ways To Increase Your Twitter Followers“. Kevin Rose, for you who don’t know who he is, is the founder of Digg and an investor in Twitter.

  1. Explain to your followers what retweeting is and encourage them to retweet your links. Retweeting pushes your @username into foreign social graphs, resulting in clicks back to your profile. Track your retweets using retweetist.
  2. Fill out your bio. Your latest tweets and @replies don’t mean much to someone that doesn’t know you. Your bio is the only place you have to tell people who you are. Also, your bio is displayed on Twitter’sSuggested Users page. Leaving it blank or non-descriptive doesn’t encourage people to add you.
  3. As @garyvee says, “link it up.” Put links to your Twitter profile everywhere. Link it on your Digg, LinkedIn, Facebook, blog, email signature, and everywhere else you live online. Also, check out the great feedburner-like badges from TwitterCounter for your blog.
  4. Tweet about your passions in life and #hash tag them. Quality content coupled with an easy way to find it never fails. If others enjoy your content, they’ll add you. Learn more about #hash tagging here.
  5. Bring your twitter account into the physical world. Every time I give a talk, speak on a panel, shoot a podcast, present slides, or hand out business cards, I figure out a way to broadcast or display my twitter account.
  6. Take pictures. Pictures are heavily retweeted/spread around. This one from US Airways Flight 1549 has been viewed 350,000+ times. For mobile pics use iPhone apps such as Tweetie orTwitterific, both which support on the go uploading.
  7. Start a contest. @jasoncalacanis offered a free macbook air if he reached the #1 most followed spot. That never happened, but Jason added thousands of followers…brilliant.
  8. Follow the top twitter users and watch what they tweet. Pay attention to the type of content they sent out and how they address their audiences.
  9. Reply to/get involved in #hash tag memes. search.twitter.com lists the hot ‘trending topics. Look for the #hash topics and jump in on the conversation (see #4 for links to #hash instructions).
  10. Track your results. TwitterCounter will show you how many new users you’re adding per day andQwitter will email you when someone unfollows you after a tweet.

I’ve Got New Friends

Silly Thing (song)
Image via Wikipedia

I ‘hate’ to say this but I just found two utterly eccentric buddies (or creatures..whatever). They’re neither cute nor posh. But I’m just pretty sure they’re silly enough to laugh at.


The Lad

He’s a total RIOT. No one could hum sing out loud in the crowded street as shamelessly as this guy can. The last time I wanted to sew his mouth, he refused and kept singing as if everyone adored his (in)harmonious voice.

The Lass

She’s got that 6th sense thing called ‘visions’. Always mumbling, “I dreamed of……last night” or “I had a vision before …..”. Don’t get me wrong but visions are not only in business textbooks (one of which I’m currently translating at snail pace now).

It’s a privilige to know you, guys nutty guy and girl…
