Redmummy: I type 120 words per minute and keyboard is important for me. A keyboard that are not too cramp,button do not sound when i type too fast. Should come out a soft type of keyboard or maybe a projector keyboard.

Question and Answer Session

Spectator: What disadvantage or downside of technology?

Joyce: Got one time my company, accidentally the internet have a problem everybody just sit down never do anything.

Will(Presenter): Sit down drink Teh Tarik right! She mean by without internet will make a lot of losses for that day.

Cynthia: If Internet are down I will get crazy, without it I can’t live.

Redmummy: Without it, the world will be only a basic human life. Should have something permanent  or something new.

Will(Presenter): I think should create a real pigeon to sent one place to an another then twitting.

Jojo: People use internet to download music or video so easily. When people upload stuff to the net such as scandal or stuff the whole world would know related to politic or entertainment.

The Downside is people can take your work and make as theirs.

Will(Presenter): You mean like Tiger Woods about the affair that the whole world knew about it. But you can use good advantage of it like Paris Hilton that shoot her career up.

Kenny: When I blog something weird. Surely there are hater comment. Just want to explain to the hater it would take days to resolve or explain to them.

Joyce: Now 4-7 years old kids can go online to youtube to watch sesame street and stuff. People now and last time evolve differently. With Internet they evolve faster. We parent can’t 24/7 taking care of our kids.

Kenny: For example People Download mp3 song from a band that are not famous, after downloading their song most of people like it and it can make them famous . People need to just evolve with it.

Jojo: There are 200 million digital user in the world will surely love music but mostly them download song from the net and cause singer to loss a lot of money out of it. The solution is make it pay for a price and download as much as you can for that period of time.

Redmummy: We can just Google everything, can browse the tut tut(censored) too. My kids are from Chinese school and me and my husband don’t really know Chinese and normally i call my kids to Google that words he don't know online for Chinese word. Most of the time they use Wikipedia to find out.

Cynthia: People steal photograph. Happen to me before someone take all my pictures and open an account for picture in a website putting my name in it. It is like stealing an identity and using it for their own advantage

Jojo: Mean like open an account people will ask it is really you in this account.

Joyce: When you post beautiful image of yourself in the net people will surely take it. Such as Google you can steal news from other people and make as yours without going to the scene.

Redmummy: Got before someone put my HP number at a porn site. Got people call me asking are you free tonight?. Then I make a police report to fight for my right and some more i have a husband and kids. At last the police caught the person that did it.
