Samsung Galaxy S Sells over 300,000 Units in South Korea!

Samsung Galaxy S, which debuted in South Korea couple months back by Samsung in their home country, sold over 300,000 units.  This certainly is a good sign since South Korea is a small country (where I am from) and I would expect they would sell more of these units worldwide, especially here in the U.S. with the launch of T-Mobile Samsung Vibrant, Sprint Epic 4G, AT&T Samsung Captivate, and Verizon’s Samsung Fascinate, all of which are variants of the original Galaxy S Android smartphone.

Wibro Egg (4G MiFi) Launched in South Korea!

WiBro Egg, a wifi-tethering device using WiBro (which is like 4G WiMax pretty much), has been launched in South Korea.   Think of it as the MiFi device, except it’s about 10 times faster.

According to the test reports, it’s doing about 8Mbps down and 4Mbps up, not too shabby.

I know Sprint already has a “giant” 4G hotspot device, hopefully they will be adding smaller ones like this later this year.

Here’s a demo video of the device (in Korean):

South Koreans and their Online Banking System on Windows Internet Explorer!

The South Koreans have practically built all of their web-based businesses on IE.  I know this for a fact because I used to intern at a South Korean company back in about ’99 when I was forced to learn Microsoft’s ASP, good thing I quit after couple days, what a useless pile of technology. (in comparison to PHP that is)

For one, the South Koreans do online-banking over their cellphones, smartphones, and the Windows computer.  The difference between the Koreans and Americans is that Korean online banking allows instant transfers.  Koreans use online banking to do most o

iPhone Launching in Korea!

iphone-korea

iPhone will be launching in Korea (finally) soon on KT Telecom’s 3G network.  I am not sure how well the iPhone will do in Korea, especially since KT telecom actually has launched WiBro/WiMax service back in 2006r.  Certainly, competing against other WiMax-enabled smartphones from Samsung and LG will be a tough

NEWS – How Should South Korea Inspect Suspicious North Korean Ships?

The recent news, if you have been keeping up to date, is that North Korea has all of the world’s eyes glued to their actions with nuclear weapons.  I personally think it’s ridiculous that the world is giving North Korea so much attention when there’s so much more important things to solve in the world such as inhuman Iranian government.

Here’s an excerpt from the Philipino news I picked up just now:

South Korea’s coast guard said

Hackers Attack South Korea and the White House!

I know for a fact that millions of hackers live in South Korea, where even FBI can’t even get to.   Here’s a bunch of interesting news that hackers have attacked the South Korean government websites and also the White House.

Well, my best tip is that you need to really strengthen the firewall but whatever.

Also there’s speculation that North Korea might be behind this hacker attack.  I just think hackers are hackers, they do this for fun.

Researchers who are following the attacks said that they began July 4 and focused on the small group of United S

DIY Satellite Antenna King!

Here’s a South Korean farmer who has managed to get 80 satellites up and running as shown here.  The main reason is to actually get more channels for the foreign-born women who get married in rural Korea:

In South Korea, which had once prided itself on being a homogeneous society, 4 out of 10 women who married in rural communities last year were foreign born. In Yeongju alone, the number of foreign wives increased by 28 percent in the past year and a half, to 250, half of t
