http://edu.casio.com/products/ntd/fx570es/

I bought a new Scientific Calculator, Casio fx-570ES. You can click on the link above for more information about the calculator. Previously I am using Casio fx-570MS until recently I left my calculator at my hometown. The function for both of them are similar, and I am being told that the newer fx-570ES support more calculation function/feature which are not available in the older model.  The one on the left is fx-570MS, (belongs to my housemate) and the one on the right is my new fx-570ES.

Normal functionality of the new calculator doesn’t give much problem to me, location of the keys similar to the new one. One thing that really bugs me on the new calculator is they remove the number prefix (like milli, nano, pico, Mega, Kilo, …) on the new calculator, and they change the combination of the SHIFT + Number to other functions. I will say I rely a lot on this function on my previous Scientific Calculator for the calculation of timing in my coding work.

Nice Google Chrome Extension

I am browsing through the Google Chrome Extensions, at Chrome Web Store (https://chrome.google.com/webstore), and I found this, Do Not Press Extension (https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/aobdeilhnojnhkkdmjonphohbihecmeg#). This is really a very simple extensions, yet it create a lots of fun.

This is the print screen of the extension page, and I think I will not explain on the detail about this extension, or how to use it, because it will beat the purpose of that extension. Simply click on the Install button, and have a try on that RED button. You will have a fun 2-5 minutes I guess.
