[ red_a02 ] Shuzhen – The first episode was a lot of fun, cos it had an interesting cocktail of sexual tension and smooth fight choreography. This episode is like the awkward aftermath...

[ vermilion_2 ] YAPX – I understand that most of your stories are dialogue-based and heavy on retorts and counter-retorts. This one felt unnecessarily circular. It starts with a cool premise: a killer/villain/vigilante uses Lent to swear off something that should be second nature to him (I suppose), and then talks about a story. The link between the two (giving up killing & the story) isn’t a 100% fit. Maybe instead of “let me tell you a story”, it could be “hey, you see I even passed a guy up for death today!” or equivalent. Something to drag Lorelei into the banter and the premise. // That’s my only complaint. I’m not a big fan of dialogue-based stories, but I can make a exception for this.

[ 130204 ] YAPX – Good pace, good characters, great dialogue. The thing I like best is a combination of the three: how you build up their pseudo-relationship through all that back-and-forth exchange. Somehow, you craft a unique, strange relationship: from any one point in the story, both of them are manipulative, victimised and hypocrites - though not all at once. // On word choices, I felt you could change the word “janitor” (“cleaner” or “uncle” would’ve given a different, but more acute local flavour to it). Mostly because, it’s connotes an added level of difference through: class. Whether or not you intended it, by portraying the “janitor” and “student” you bring out the fact that he’s stuck there socially in all sense of the word. It made the part where he says he reads books during weekends completely out-of-context and weird. // Also, there’s too much “sliding” in and out of the room. Not sure if that’s intentional repetition, or just a lack of other words. // I thought that the girl’s own background is pretty compelling. Even after everything, I can’t tell if she’s speaking the truth. Because I’m all for unreliable narrators and characters, I can still find her well-thought out. But other readers might lose patience or wonder at her sudden change of heart at the final moment.

FUCK YOU, REDNANO. A GREAT BIG FUCK YOU for being a second-rate Google rip off.
I figured, since I was going to write a Singapore-based post, that rednano’s “we have all the ST archives” boast might come in useful. THIS IS A FUCKING LIE.
What kind of fucked up search engine gives you results from a subscription-based site? rednano’s access to the ST archives is limited to rednano, the user has no access beyond knowing that it exists. In effect, the so-called “feature” is no different from Google’s sponsored ads. It’s the “search” function on a sub-site posing as a feature of a search engine.
It’s not even that annoying that they include sub-only results. But there is no indicator that the results are pay-to-view. Is a simple $$$ icon so hard to make?
Come to that, I wouldn’t even be annoyed except for the fact that they went around saying “oh, we have the ST archives, our results will pwn Google”. So, the only reason I go there is for the ST archives and when I get there you tell me I have to pay for it? Do you losers have the same marketing team as Naughty by Nature?
And, seriously, Google = word meaning a number (albeit misspelled), nano = word meaning a number, red = commie; ∴ rednano = “Commie Google”. Or, “bloody ripoff”.
Yeah, yeah, their site explains the name as some sort of pride of “the little red dot” nonsense. FFS, in spite of their explanation of “nano” on the site itself, they don’t seem to have a clue that “nano” ≠ “little”. “nano” = “so fucking small your eyes can’t see it, it is that fucking small”.
I don’t have much expectations of rednano, I was even gonna write a “cut them some slack” post after all the reviews comparing them with Google.sg (I have a lot of respect for SPH). I mean, they’re still in beta, they’re not supposed to be better than Google, yet. But this is utterly ridiculous.
Here’s my unbiased and entirely factual review of rednano, in one line –
“Google is a far superior search engine when compared to rednano for the simple fact that Google has the technological advantage of not confusing ‘results that you have to pay for’ with ‘actual, you know, results’.”
FUCK YOU, REDNANO. AND YOUR LIES.
The only people who will use your crap service are people who are ST subs and the only reason they’re going to use it is because Google can’t search the ST archives.
Limited usage to five articles per account per day? Or maybe I just expected rednano to know better and not go around saying that they have access to the ST archives (and, by implication, that I would have access, seeing as every other search engine lets you read what you search for), without a qualifier to that statement or a simple indicator on the results.
On the subject of search engines, Persai, by the people who used to do uncov.com, when they get it done, has a small chance of giving Google a run for its money.
