Experience the new Yahoo! Mail Beta

Some features of the new Yahoo! Mail Beta:

  • Speed - Third party tests show that Yahoo! Mail Beta is "2X Faster" than the previous versions of Yahoo! Mail (i.e., New Yahoo! Mail) in Indonesia, United States, Taiwan, United Kingdom, and Germany. Exact speed of Yahoo! Mail Beta in Singapore will vary based on internet connection, browser, device, user location, and user action.
  • Spam – We continually improve our advanced spam protection technology to help protect your inbox from unwanted messages.
  • Unlimited Storage – Consistent with Yahoo! Mail terms of service. Learn More.
  • Mobile – Device must have an active internet connection for user to access e-mails.


The "bad" with Yahoo! Mail Beta works best with these browsers is it actually works best on really recent browsers: Internet Explorer 8, Firefox 3 and newer, Safari 4 and newer, and Chrome 5.

ACJC Birthday Girl Tied Up and Tortured

The two videos mentioned are particularly shocking to me because of two factors. First of all, the perpetrators are practically all females, with a few boys in the background cheering. I never knew women are into such cruelty as well. Second, it occurred in bright daylight at a crowded school canteen - where everybody can see! The poor victim was tied to a chin-up bar and attacked mercilessly. All in the name of “celebrating” her birthday.

The school where all these took place is a well-reputed school - Anglo-Chinese Junior College (ACJC). (No point in concealing the school’s identity as the uniform of the students involved is obvious).

Video captured on the incident was uploaded onto YouTube but was taken down after this matter was blown up.
