KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama) -- With threats of serious financial crime looming with the emergence of new technologies, including cryptocurrencies, can bitcoin survive scrutiny from central banks globally? 

Amid growing warnings of a market bubble, central banks, such as that of China, have restricted cryptocurrencies trading, which sent the virtual currency dropping as much as 40 per cent since reaching a record high of US$4,921 on Sept 1, cutting about US$20 billion in market value.

This is following a crackdown by Chinese regulators on cryptocurrencies trading, including bitcoin, which according to the authorities have become a tool for speculation among investors and also serves as a payment conduit for illegal fundraising and money laundering.

Get Smart With Huawei honor 7

Product Review By Suriani Razali

KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 10 (Bernama) -- Cell phones have become an integral part of our lives. While men carry them in their pants pocket, women generally carry it in their handbag.

For what is a large designer handbag if it won't help carry things? Surveys have shown that among the items women keep in their handbag are make-up kit, feminine products, sunglass, a purse, car keys, painkillers, hand sanitiser, nail clipper, a diary, etc.

Ever noticed that many women would be struggling to look for their handphone, which is either hidden in a "secret" pouch or buried deep in their handbag, whenever they receive a call? No worries. Huawei, one of the world's largest smartphone manufacturers, has unravelled the "mystery" by unveiling last month its latest product 'honor 7', which is specially equipped to help the owner locate the device with a smart voice feature.
