  5. The end is nigh for Internet trolls Internet trolls, listen up. Your days are numbered. Researchers from Cornell and Stanford Universities have created an algorithm that can identify Internet trolls by simply looking at the way they write. The algorithm is so advanced, it can predict whether or not a person needs banning from studying between five to ten of their previous forum posts or social media comments. The study entitled Antisocial Behavior in Online Discussion Communities, was part funded by Google and looks at the behaviour of Internet trolls to try and determine what it was that resulted in the being banned from an online community.

  9. New campaign reminds users over prepaid SIM card registration A spokesperson for Thailand’s National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission has announced it will launch a new multi-million Baht promotional campaign to raise public awareness of the requirement to register prepaid SIM cards prior to the July 31st deadline.

    Apple Watch preorders open today – but how can you buy one in Thailand? As you are probably aware by now, the Apple Watch is available for pre-order today in various countries around the world.
