Yes, This on-board WiFi service is very first to Malaysia and it’s officially introduced by AirAsia today.
The inflight WiFi service is called as “roKKi chats” which enables guests to use selected IM apps while flying,currently the apps are restricted to WhatsApp, Wechat and Line. However, more apps will be supported in the future.
As what I know,the WiFi system is developed by roKKi & Tunebox based on SwiftBroadband(broadband service provided by inmarsat).Up to date,only 4 plans have equipped the WiFi system and expand to another 15 planes by year end. AirAsia intends to provide the WiFi service to all 80 of its Malaysian aircrafts by second quarter of next year and by the end of next year,all 160 aircrafts could get WiFi onboard.
You’ll be informed by flight attendants when you are on a roKKi-support flight. To get to use the service is quite simple: Continue reading

One month after iPhone 5S, Apple released iPad Air and new iPad mini with Retina Display to replace the 4th Gen iPad and former iPad mini.

TM runs Streamyx Zone WiFi service for years and now Maxis joins to provide WiFi service in public area too.Of course,it’s payable.
If you go to a place showing this logo,that means Maxis WiFi is available in that area.Well,I don’t think you could see this logo frequently as the service area is quite limited currently,most of them are shopping centers and commercial buildings.Sunway Pyramid,KLCC,Imbi Plaza,Menara Maxis,IOI Mall,Phileo Damansara,Jaya One are in the list.You could check more details here.
The service is only available for currently Maxis users(both prepaid and postpaid) and have several packages to choose.
I checked everywhere but found that Maxis didn’t disclose how fast the WiFi connection could be.Well,I think we have to wait somebody to test it later.
Twitter just followed the step of Gmail to set the option to let the users visit it by https connection.
If you always visit Twitter under a open and shared network such as unsecured WiFi connections,you’d better to opt it to ensure that your information will not be hijacked easily.
Some Twitter clients have been providing the service via https,however that’s not all.I hope they could improve it as faster as they can because quite a number of people login into Twitter though the clients in public area by WiFi.If you always login to Twitter by mobile browsers,make sure you key in https instead of http.
Have a secured surfing!
