What is Productivity, Effectiveness, Efficiency and the differences between them

Image
I was confused between Efficiency and Effectiveness and Productivity so I go ahead and do some research about it. Below are my finding which clear my thought.
In Manufacturing,  Productivity is an average measure of the efficiency of production. Productivity is a ratio of production output to what is required to produce it. The measure of productivity is defined as a total output per one unit of a total input.  
Effective refer to the capabilities to producing a desired product/ result. 
Efficiency refer to produce product in the most optimum way - Fastest and least expensive way. It is being measure by the amount of time, money and energy. 

What is Productivity efficiency: Productive efficiency occurs when the economy is utilizing all of its resources efficiently. The concept is illustrated on a production possibility frontier where all points on the curve are points of maximum productive efficiency (i.e. the maximum throughput). Productive efficiency occurs when the economy is using a…

Jstock Auto Dividend

Image
When Select the Auto Dividend Feature in Jstock. It is based on the Ex-Date of the share bought.




What is Ex-date? The ex-dividend date is the day on which all shares bought and sold no longer come attached with the right to be paid the most recently declared dividend. This is an important date for any company that has many stockholders, including those that trade on exchanges, as it makes reconciliation of who is to be paid the dividend easier. It is just as important for investors, however, since you must own a stock before the ex-dividend date in order to receive the next scheduled dividend.-  taken from http://www.dividend.com/dividend-stock-library/dividend_date.php




Potential Scam - Sms sent from unknown number 0078090501303

Image
Today I received a sms from +78090501303 with the text below:

hello we have important voice message for you call this number now to hear it 0078090501303  For a moment I almost press the number to call however I recall if its a voicemail it should go through my telco with the number 121. This look like a scam for me. I did the search online apparently i'm not the only one receive message from this number. More detail can be obtain via http://callerr.com/0078090501303#yourreport.

I didn't call back so I don't know this is a scam but there is a high chance it is.

LogMeIn Free is discontinued with Surprise - How to lost customers in one day

Image
LogMeIn is a Remote Access Tool that let you Access, manage and support computers remotely.
I have been using LogMeIn Free version for years to occasionally access to my home machine or help friends to troubleshoot their windows problem.

Today I receive an update from LogMeIn with the following email:


Yes, you read it right. Today is 21 January and they are terminating their free option immediately. It is actually fine for me as I only occasionally using it and its not hard for me to make the decision  say no to the 49USD/year subscription and start looking for alternative like TeamViewer.

What need to highlighted is actually how bad ( yes, I mean bad) their marketing is and also how they treat their customers. The email basically say nothing but "Pay me or get off", if you search around the internet you will find comments like below or in their Community Page:

How to Remove Hao123 adware after install Qvod 2014 ( 如何在安装Qvod后移除hao123 )

Image
tl;dr

Uncheck everything throug Qvod player by right click > Options (选项)> others (其他)> Uncheck Everything.

After installed Qvod 5 last week ( January 2014), all my browsers such as IE, Firefox and Chrome has been kidnaped by an adware hao123.com. hao123 is actually a website provided by baidu as a comprehensive website listing however it become very annoying especially it injected to your browser start page without your approval.



I didn't pay a lot of attention when I installed Qvod hence it installed "快玩" and other unwanted adwares to my pc. The first lesson:

ALWAYS pay attention to software that you are going to install. You will never know what additional application it will "recommend" to you.

I spend some time to remove all of them however the problem still persist - hao123 still showing all around.

For IE, it is pretty straight forward. I manage to restore it via default home page preference. Baidu were trying to modify again but was detected (by …

Investment - IOI Properties, (IOIPG, 5249) - Introspective Moment of Impulse Decision Making

Image
Today I shouldn't get holding by the market trend and buy share blindly, aka follow my Impulse. This happened during IOI Properties (5249 ) IPO listing date where the price shoot up from listed price 2.51 -> 3.0 -> 3.2 -> 3.4 -> 3.6 within few minutes when the market open. 

I initially bid at RM2.86 but the pre-open market bidding make me feel that I'm too low for my price as majority of them bit > RM 3. The pace of the price increase went up after market open convinced me about that feeling and believe that the price will eventually push to higher price ( even to RM5) and hence during that time, my mind was only having the mind of " Buy ! Buy ! Buy !" before its too late. 

During that moment, NTA ( which 3.2 at the moment) , PE , DPS were totally out of my mind. I just don't want to lost the chance of being an early bird to buy the share. I decided to place my bet after the share slow down a little bit and by putting bit on 3.4, while it was 3.42 …

Canon PIXMA MG 3100 Series LCD Screen Error Codes and their solution

Image
I have a Cannon Wireless MG3170 All-in-one printer and I use it on my "Memory On Cloud Project". The project is to scan all my childhood pictures ( before Digital Camera was even born) into cloud storage to share with all my siblings and relatives.

There is a scan Feature in MG3170 which allow you to quick scan a file into computer without operating through Computer. This is extremely helpful when you do them in bulk.


When I press it, it does nothing but shows green code with E31.




I know this might be due to some configuration issue and a little bit of research apparently this scan button only works in wired connection, aka usb connection. 
Below are all the others ERROR Code that I find them usefull when come in handy. Hence this blog.

How much Loan you can get in Malaysia based on your current income?

Image
tl;drNavigate to here and here to calculate how much loan you can get from bank.


In my recent conversation with friends and colleagues, almost everyone talk about the same topic - when to own a house and how much they can afford?

There is no solid answer as personal expenses are greatly depend on each individual life style. If you are enjoying having fine dinning experience and luxury goods, we can easily assume that you won't be able to afford that much ( depend on how much you earn). If you are strict with your own financial planning, chances are you have a proper saving plan and more comfortable in attached to a higher amount of loan. As a side note, a simple and great place for you to start your own financial planning would be The Jar System - Simple yet effective.
