I had the chance to interview one of the newest writers for m|PH. His name is Hondo Vicente. His work has been around for the past two months, spanning reviews of the Sony Ericsson W550i and the Motorola RAZR V3i. He also helps with the on-location WiFi hotspot shoots.
Jayvee: How long have you been in the tech scene?
Hondo: Not too long ago. I learned a lot about tech from my master. He’s always in front of the computer. Sometimes I try to make pa-cute so he will notice me but he seems to be too engrossed with what he’s doing. So what I do is put my paws on the keyboard and try to mess up whatever he’s typing.

Jayvee: What do you do during your spare time?
Hondo: Apart from running around in the garden and playing with my collection of toy balls, I’m usually asleep or eating. Between chasing the stray cat and my daily 7:00 pm walk, I can be found on the rug drafting my plans for the new democracy.
Jayvee: Tell me something that a lot of people don’t know about you.
Hondo: Contrary to how most people see me, I’m actually a dog.
Jayvee: Are you happy with your life?
Hondo: Yes I am. There are a lot of things to look forward to. I consider myself pretty accomplished for my state of being. I mean, I’m a dog, dude. Name me other dogs that write reviews for a gadget magazine.
Jayvee: Who are your idols?
Hondo: There’s Scooby Doo, Barkley from Sesame Street and Pluto.
Jayvee: If you had one wish that you could make come true, what would it be?
Hondo: World peace.
