During my visit here, I’ve asked a few Optus stores and they all said the same: no more prepaid iPhones. One of the stores even told me that they are not doing prepaid iPhones anymore because they are losing money.

That’s too bad. Anyhow, here’s wishing that the iPhone for Malaysia will come soon.

I’ll be flying back home in the afternoon. Until then. Cheers!

John Gruber of Daring Fireball had an interesting find on Google’s latest (and much-publicized) update to its mobile iPhone application. Much to Google’s credits, the update features a very clever interaction design for the voice search feature. Users can either manually tap the on-screen button to initiate a voice search, or, as illustrated in the publicity videos, initiate a voice search by simply lifting the iPhone to the ear and speaking the search terms.
