Thinner. Lighter. Faster. Simpler. The moment the iPhone 5 was unveiled we knew that it was checking off all the right boxes, folding in all the improvements and refinements people have been demanding over the past year yet plenty of folks still went to their respective social networks to type out their bitter disappointment. The iPhone 5 is here -- or will be soon, anyway -- and it's every bit the device that people were asking for when the iPhone 4S came out. Its new design has less mass yet leaves room for a larger display and LTE wireless, all while increasing battery life. In nearly every respect, this is an upgrade over the 4S that came before, though it arrives almost a year later than many had hoped. Is it too late to keep pace with the rapidly iterating Android offerings, or is it so good it was worth waiting for? The answer lies below. Hardware The iPhone 5 is a clear evolution of the stark, industrial design introduced two years ago with the iPhone 4. That collection … [Read more...] about iPhone 5 review
2010 continued to be an expansive year for foreign banks in Vietnam, without too much focus on profits. When Citigroup opened its first retail outlet in Ho Chi Minh City in October 2009, it was a surprise to some.

A representative of GMM Grammy, Varavuthi Bulakul, said Vietnam is an open market though it has many talents. The thing that Vietnamese singers need is a complete development strategy. The country’s music industry can’t integrate into the world yet and Vietnam doesn’t have a single recording product distribution company that reaches the regional level. After distributing three albums, namely Made in Vietnam, Chat with Mozart and Let Love Sing, in Japan, the Japan-based Pony Chanyon Distributor company and Vietnamese singer My Linh are sprinting to release the fourth album of My Linh in Japan this year’s end. On this fourth album, My Linh will sing in English. This is a strategy to expand the Japanese market for My Linh’s voice by Pony Chanyon Distributor. Talent, potential The cooperation between My Linh and a foreign distributor is not the sole one in Vietnam. Minh Thu is an exclusive singer of Thailand-based House of Indies. After a joint album with … [Read more...] about Foreign companies do music business in Vietnam
The excellent students, who join provincial selected teams to attend national competitions, understand that they have to "lay a bet" on their future. It would be wonderful if they can win good prizes at the national competitions for excellent students or can be selected for the national teams for international Olympiads. However, if they cannot win high prizes, they will have to return to daily school hours and have to prepare intensively for the university entrance exams. Especially, they would have start everything from the very beginning, with the lack of knowledge and live skills. One month before the national competition is considered the "sprinting period" for the students who join the competition. They have been gathered in teams to receive special training to prepare for the competition. In general, prestigious teachers in Hanoi are invited to provinces to provide some teaching hours to upgrade the quality of the teams. Of course, it is very costly and difficult to … [Read more...] about Excellent students turning into “fighting cocks”?
