Say hello to pay-extra-broadband by Maxis

Its hardly surprising at all. That Maxis Malaysia has done something again. At first they came up with renewable contract which automagically renews every 18 months. After battling with that , and now they are coming up with this instead – no its far worst then contract. Its disconnection once you’ve hit your limit. That’s right , as we do know that Maxis Broadband sells broadband based on Volume (data transfer) . Now once you’ve reached your limit , you’ll be greeted by this page. You could only surf Maxis Site (ugh) and do Google Searches only – which is pretty crippled Before this (and in fact other providers) do allow you to continue to use the service but at a downgraded speed (i.e 64kbps) once you’ve reached the limit. A good example of this would be Celcom. Maxis was doing something like this before , but then I guess that it would be better just to say goodbye to their customers who are using ample of bandwidth and charge them more instead.

Whoops I've hit the limit , honey and now I can't surf

Karma

Thats right folks. Its all about karma. Now just take a look at psystar’s site. Now they are virtually begging for donations so that they can continue to survive. Sad but its true , its not going to help them at all. The reason is simple , it dates back when psystar stole the great work of Hackint0sh team and then sold it for a profit.

Yes , thats' right. Even God is not going to help you now , pystar

Currently , what I would predict is that only those who are lost or currently clueless about whats going on in the OSX86 arena would help them. If you truly want to give someone something special , why don’t you donate to osx86 communities such as InsanelyMac , Chameleon , InfiniteMac or the great developers of osx86 (for instance you may want to donate to chameleon ,or to netkas for making it possible to get it up and running) instead of donating money to a corporation who in returns provides nothing new but steals stuff from open source things , rips it off and calls it its theirs. Some of  you may say , well they have made an open source portal , would that make them the nice guys. I would say certainly not , they have released their open source portal as a last resort. Before this they did not bother to release their “modified chameleon” source code but when in trouble they in fact did it.

I guess people do change and try to a lot of things when they are desperate. Sad but its true , there is always karma. I can’t run away from it , and so do you. One day , we’ll all (yes me , you , the guy who lives across the stress , hot chicks , Master Obi-Wan , Jonas Brothers , etc)  be facing ours sooner or later – its just matter of time. Moral of the story is that , do not cheat and do not try to steal something from the community. Even if you want to market it , at least beCourteous enough to put it up in a read me or some file on the original project that it was based upon. If the license wants you to release the source code , be sure to release it !
