FTD : Kim Jong-Un Must Step Down

Financial Times Deutschland(FTD) featured an article called "7 dictators that must step down in 2012". The second dictators chosen by FTD were :

-Baschar al-Assad
-Ayatollah Ali Chamanei
-Alexander Lukaschenko
-Robert Mugabe
-Nursultan Nasarbajew
-Omar Hussein al-Baschir
-Kim Jong-Un.

FTD pointed out that while North Korea is extremely hostile to almost all nations, the US knows almost nothing about Kim Jong-Un. Nobody is even sure of his age, except that he seems to be in his late 20s. FTD also pointed out that the 24 million people of North Korea are starving and suffering from malnutrition, as well as 200,000 people in political labor prisons.

Congratulations, Kim Jong-Un! You just got your face out, and you seem to have taken your father's evil legacy right away.

LG 55 inch OLED TV Wonders

From AP -
LG Electronics Inc. says it's planning to sell a 55-inch set based on organic light-emitting diodes, or OLEDs. The Korean company is set to show it off at the International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, which starts Jan. 10.Tim Alessi, director of home electronics development at LG's USA arm, said its set will likely go on sale in the fourth quarter. The company isn't revealing the price.
Paul Gagnon, an analyst at DisplaySearch, estimates that OLED sets will start out above $5,000.
The screen technology is in use in high-end smartphones and provides deeply saturated colors and high contrast. However, it's been very difficult to make larger screens with consistent results. In late 2007, Sony Corp. started selling an 11-inch OLED TV for about $2,500, but it never followed it up with a bigger model.
Apart from providing improved picture quality, OLED TVs can be very thin. LG's set will be 4 millimeters thick (3/16ths of an inch) and weight 16.5 pounds.
Look at that! I'm not a techie by any means, but that sure as hell looks really cool. Check out the video below for some really cool LG OLED TV action! (Source)

North Korea's New Year's Resolution

Happy New Year to all readers! In the past 10 months or so, I have accumulated more than 60,000 views. Not bad for my first blogging experience, right?

New Year's Day means new year's resolution. Have you made one? I know North Korea has!
North Korea vowed Sunday to make an all-out drive for prosperity as it unites behind new leader Kim Jong Un, ushering in 2012 with promises to resolve food shortages, bolster its military and defend Kim Jong Il's young son "unto death."...This year is a crucial one for North Korea as it tries to build a "great, prosperous and powerful nation" befitting the April 2012 centenary of the birth of national founder Kim Il Sung, the new leader's grandfather.
"Glorify this year 2012 as a year of proud victory, a year when an era of prosperity is unfolding," said the New Year's message, carried by the official Korean Central News Agency. "The whole party, the entire army and all the people should possess a firm conviction that they will become human bulwarks and human shields in defending Kim Jong Un unto death." (Source)
Well, considering the food shortage, economic depression, and social structures crumbling... I think this is going to be another un-keepable new year's resolution
