TM Reps for Question & Answer session
If you're lucky enough to be the first 8000 to try out this service by TM - you'll receive instantly an online credit of RM5 to make your very first VOiP phone call & SMS to your friends!!! Really... it's cheap, it's clear, and it's easy.
Not just that, you can Log on to your messaging service, check Facebook messages - comments - notifications, Twitter, Gtalk and much more all from this platform. You can then keep all your complicated passwords at home tucked in a book somewhere safe and just use this one Login and Password! No more confusions, no more hassle!
Last Wednesday, 7th April - i was invited to the launch of iTALK WHOA! by TM at Borneo Rainforest CLUB @ Bdr. Sunway. Where i met up with so many blogging friends from the past, those who i haven't seen for a long time and those who's been so busy to meet up. They were all there. It was like a blast from the past.
Anyways, managed to get an insight of what iTALK WHOA! is really all about, its technical functions, and all. Basically it's made to HELP you and i in our everyday life. To simply make everything simpler and easier!
- Just imagine this what if your phone runs out of battery! And there's no way for you to charge it! You can just go to any computer / online terminal log on to iTALK WHOA! and send a text msg to your friend to help you / save you / meet you! - Rather than having to go back all the way home right.
- Another scenario would be when you forgotten to bring your phone out with you, just logon to your laptop from anywhere with Wi-Fi and make a voice call to your friend, very easy and simple.
Whatever it is, it's meant to help make your life easier... The only thing is, for now you would have to use Internet Explorer (IE) to log on to the service and to use it as it's currently not compatible with other browsers. But soon enough it will be ready for Google Chrome, Firefox and more...
On the other hand... met up with so many friends here at the event, was even pulled up on stage to play a stage game but at first i was about to win the game but for some technical reasons i LOST :( But oh well.. i could've won a Panasonic DECT Cordless Phone! Woohoo.. COULD HAVE is a very BIG WORD!
Anyway - BUNKFACE! Was there to perform a few numbers from their album "PHOBIA PHONEY"!!! Check'em out :)
Now let me hear it... iTALK...:
