Org Msia yg cipta Pendrive ?

Subject: $31bil - Truly ..... an inspiring story

Pua's mighty 'Pen'

S. INDRAMALAR speaks to the creator of the now indispensable Pen Drive

Fact file

Name: Pua Khein Seng
Age: 31
Hometown: Sekinchan, Selangor
Education: SJKC Yeok Kuan, Sekinchan; Pin Hwa Independent school, Klang; Chiao Tung University, Taiwan
Occupation: Engineer/ president of Phison Electonics Corp
Current base: Taipei , Taiwan
Years abroad: 12

WHEN he set off for Taiwan in 1993, Pua Khein Seng's only aim was to complete his degree in Electrical Control Engineering at the renowned Chiao Tung University and return home to work in Malaysia .

Never did he envision himself heading a multi-million dollar Taiwanese company that developed the world's first USB flash removable disk, which they called Pen Drive .

Pua Khein Seng went to Taiwan to get his engineering degree but ended up staying on, starting his own company and inventing the pen drive.

"I went to Taiwan to pursue my undergraduate degree. I chose Taiwan only because it was too expensive to study either in the United States or Singapore .

"However, I did well in my undergraduate programme and was offered a place to do my masters," explained Pua, who was back in Kuala Lumpur recently for a holiday.

After completing his Masters in July 1999, Pua worked for about six months in a local company before deciding to set up his own venture company with four fellow engineers who had studied with him at Chiao Tung.

"We were confident that we had the know-how and ability to start our own business, which is focused on USB technology. The company is called Phison because there are five of us - two Malaysians and three Taiwanese engineers," said Pua, 31, who hails from Sekinchan, Selangor.

Phison Electronics Corporation was set up in November 2000 and within six months the young entrepreneurs came up with their first invention - a USB storage device called Pen Drive .

"We were the first company in the world to develop the USB Drive SoC (System On Chip) and we were very confident that the market for USB will be huge. At the time, no one believed in us so we had to do everything ourselves - from developing the technology, the chips to the product itself.

"We were only 27 at the time and inexperienced. But we were confident that we could design good systems and chips but we didn't know anything about selling. So, we sought partners or traders who could help sell our products for us," Pua added.

Through smart partnerships and shrewd strategies, Phison soon made its way into European, American and Japanese markets. One quick move was securing Japanese tech giant Toshiba as Phison's largest shareholder and customer.

"We launched Pen Drive in June 2001 and by August the same year, we broke even! From September 2001, we were reaping monthly profits from our invention and there has been no turning back since."

Having established himself in Taiwan , Pua is in the midst of setting up Phison's branch in Malaysia , due to begin operations this

"I am starting a branch in Malaysia because this is my country. I would like to do contribute to its development.

"We have about 100 engineers at Phison in Taiwan , 20 of whom are Malaysians. Though they studied in Taiwan , I had to re-train all the engineers I hire because, like most fresh graduates (in this field), they are not industry-ready upon graduation.

"Unfortunately, some of the Malaysian engineers want to return home after a couple of years because they are homesick, about to start a family and so on. Some prefer to work in Singapore , as it is closer to home. Instead of losing them to competitors, I decided to set up an office in Malaysia where they can still work for me," said Pua.

Another problem faced by returning computer engineers from Taiwan , Pua added, was the lack of job opportunities for hardware engineers in Malaysia .

"There is no environment or support for design engineers here in Malaysia . One of my Malaysian engineers from Phison returned home and ended up as a teacher in a Chinese school! I was shocked and thought, 'After all that training and re-training, he is going to just teach?' I told him to hold on till I open up the Phison branch in Malaysia ."

Though he has been in Taiwan for the past 12 years and married to a Taiwanese, Pua is not sure how much longer he will remain there.

"I have really no idea where I will be in 20 years. Maybe Taiwan , maybe Malaysia , maybe somewhere else ... it all depends on my business. The industry is moving so fast that I cannot predict what or where I will be," he said.

For the moment though, Taiwan is home for Pua, his wife and two children even though he misses the Malaysian way of life.

"I come home once a year for Chinese New Year and will usually stay for about two weeks. There are several things I really miss about Malaysia . One is the food! For the past 12 years I have been craving for Malaysian food ... I miss laksa , curry noodles, chee cheong fun and all the other delicious dishes we have here.

"I also miss the lifestyle and quality of life here. When I come back, I am always amazed to see people hanging out and relaxing at mamak shops at night. In Taiwan , most people would still be at work at that time of the night!

"Before I got married, I used to work for 15 to 17 hours a day, everyday. Now that I have children, my wife has forbidden me to stay so late. Now, I go to work at 9am and come home by 11pm. These hours are quite normal for the Taiwanese."

The man who invented USB pen-drive is a young modest Malaysian who can't even get into a local University but invented the most versatile, indispensable computer peripheral today. And helped his adopted country, Taiwan made $31bil in the process. The rest is history....

Liverpool star Torres to front 'PES 2010' ...

Konami has announced that Liverpool striker Fernando Torres has agreed to become the face of its forthcoming Pro Evolution Soccer 2010.

The 25-year-old Spaniard now joins Barcelona playmaker Lionel Messi in fronting the game, which will be released for PS3, Xbox 360, PC, PSP, PS2 and mobile devices this autumn.

"Everyone knows that when it comes to football simulation, Konami's PES series is by far the most realistic title available," said Torres.

"The new game looks absolutely stunning, and I look forward to seeing myself in action in PES 2010."

Jon Champion and Mark Lawrenson will return for commentating duties in the title, while Konami has worked to emphasise triangulation of passes and off-the-ball runs to create more precise, realistic play.

Gamers can also compete in a new Master League incorporating both Champions League and Europa League (formally the Uefa Cup), which includes all players from featured teams being available for transfer.

Last year, it was reported that console addict Torres had spent £35,000 on three dedicated gaming rooms at his mansion in Liverpool.

Raul padam rekod di Stefano

GIJON , Sepanyol – Raul Gonzalez berjaya memecahkan rekod jaringan sepanjang masa Real Madrid, kelmarin dengan melepasi rekod 307 gol yang dipegang oleh Alfredo di Stefano.
Raul menjaringkan dua gol ketika membantu Real menang besar 4-0 ke atas Sporting Gijon dalam Liga Sepanyol, kelmarin mencatat jaringan 309 gol sepanjang 15 musim dengan kelab itu.
Kapten Real berusia 31 tahun itu mengatasi rekod Di Stefano dengan menolak masuk lintangan pendek Sergio Ramos pada minit ke-15.
Dia kemudian menyambar tampanan bola bebas dalam kotak penalti pada minit ke-76 untuk melengkapkan jaringan di Stadium El Molinon.
Raul memerlukan 504 perlawanan sebenar dibandingkan dengan 401 milik Di Stefano untuk mencipta rekod itu.
Dia telah menjaringkan 216 gol liga, kelima terbaik dalam senarai sepanjang masa dan 11 gol dalam 18 perlawanan musim ini.
“Dia sentiasa di barisan utama perjuangan. Dia salah seorang yang berada di garisan, seorang yang yang memikul beban pasukan dan anda hanya mampu mengucapkan tahniah kepadanya,” kata jurulatih Real, Juande Ramos.
Raul juga merupakan penjaring utama sepanjang masa Sepanyol dengan 44 gol daripada 102 perlawanan antarabangsa dan menjadi penjaring utama sepanjang masa dalam pertandingan Kesatuan Bola Sepak Eropah (UEFA) dengan 66 gol, termasuk satu catatan utama, 64 dalam Liga Juara-juara.
Raul yang juga penjaring utama Liga Sepanyol pada musim 1998-99 dan 2000-01, bahkan memiliki rekod minit bermain yang mengatasi mana-mana pemain Real.
Real memenangi 12 piala dengan Raul, termasuk enam liga dan tiga Piala Eropah.
Di Stefano yang bermain di Real dari 1953-64, mengetuai lima gol termasuk empat musim berturut-turut dari 1955-59.
Pencapaian Raul juga mendapat penghargaan daripada pemain antarabangsa Itali, Alessandro Del Piero dan Paolo Maldini.
“Tiga ratus sembilan gol merupakan satu keputusan yang bersejarah, unik dan menakjubkan.
“Dia seorang juara yang hebat yang menunjukkan mutu yang menakjubkan selama beberapa tahun dan akan terus melakukannya buat satu masa yang panjang,” kata Del Piero kepada agensi berita Efe.
Maldini pula berkata, Raul kepunyaan ‘satu bangsa juara yang luar biasa’.
“Selain menjadi seorang juara yang hebat di padang permainan, himpunan golnya lebih daripada sebagai bukti pengesahan, dia contoh bagi semua pemain muda yang mahu menjadi pemain bola sepak,” kata benteng AC Milan itu. – AP

Game guitar hero 3 !

Assalamualaikum........hi guys, mungkin ada antara korang yg suka main game guitar hero 3.....but please check info di atas ni........kalo salah harap betulkan ye.....

Liverpool vs chelsea.....

Huhu, hope la my team, The reds menang esok...........go go go Liverpool......setakat chelsea tu tarak hal'll never walk alone

psstttt: hei Hiffni, kalo kalah wat malu jek....cakap besarrrrrr

Boikot atau x ???

ISRAEL........satu nama yg tidak asing lagi bg kebanyakan umat Islam......sekarang ni, kita di kejutkan dgn berita pencerobohan askar israel ke Gaza semula......antara langkah-langkah proaktif yg kita selalu dengar untuk menentang yahudi ni ialah melalui segmen barang pengguna...... kita diminta boikot barang israel dan amerika.....persoalannya, adakah itu ialah tindakan yg tepat ?

Sebelum kita memboikot barang israel dan amerika, saya mempunyai beberapa persoalan yg timbul di benak saya......

1. Adakah semua barang amerika atau israel perlu di boikot ?
- masalahnya kalo barang pengganti kepada semua brg-brg yg hendak diboikot itu ada takpe mcm syarikat minyak, boikot shell ada petronas tapi kalo boikot cip dalam setiap pc/desktop, intel or amd, x ke haruuu di buat nya......

2. Adakah hanya barang israel sahaja yg perlu diboikot, manakala amerika tidak ?
- rasanya susah hendak jumpa barang direct dari israel di malaysia ni sebab negara kita tidak menjalinkan hubungan diplomatik dengan israel. Kalau ada pun, mesti kes-kes terpencil dimana brg dari israel itu sampai ke amerika then baru dieksport ke malaysia.

3. Katakan saya mempunyai barang yg ada kaitan dengan amerika/israel, perlukah saya membuangnya ?
- huhu, rasanya, windows vista yg saya gunakan ini pun dari microsoft yg mana bill gates keturunan yahudi.....perlukah sy menukar vista ini kepada open source seperti linux.....sape yg pakai nokia, silalah buang dan beli cellphone lain ye

4. Adakah hanya barang atau servis dari syarikat amerika/israel yg MENGISYTIHARKAN syarikat mereka menyokong israel sahaja yg perlu diboikot manakala jikalau syarikat itu tidak menyokong israel tidak perlu diboikot walaupun manager syarikat tu yahudi ?
- starbuck secara terang-terang mengaku yg dorang sokong israel bajingan tu....tapi mcm mana dengan syarikat yg dikuasai oleh yahudi di amerika tetapi tidak menunjukkan yg mereka menyokong israel....sebagai contoh syarikat komputer dell etc....

ini adalah beberapa persoalan yg timbul di benak saya ketika ini........apa-apa pun, hope umat Islam dapat mencipta kejayaan dalam perlbagai bidang terutamanya yg paling penting dalam bidang ekonomi agar kita bebas daripada cengkaman kapitalis yg telah mnyebabkan dunia huru-hara la akibat kalau x ikuti ajaran Islam yg mengatakan riba itu haram......huhu, Bank Lehman Brothers yg da establish beratus tahun pun leh bangkrap, general motors pun terpaksa minta bantuan federal reserve..........

pssst: ramai orang yg saya tengok melaungkan slogan boikot barang amerika/israel tapi mereka hisap rokok.........most of the cigarette in m'sia is came from the amerika jews company
