it seems like everybody is launching their own WiMax network. Abe mentioned Globe launching one in 2008, but assuming this is true, they are going to have a hard time justifying the price as HSDPA currently costs P3,000.00 a month. What more for a 4G WiMax dongle + service fees? You can’t just implement a … Continue reading Happy Internet to launch WiMax service in 2008
I was over at Mindanao Bob’s place last night when he pointed out Darren’s post about Google PR swinging back once more. ProBlogger.net is back up to PR 6/10. Over here, my PageRank has also been restored to its original 5/10. According to Darren, this fluctuation was confirmed to be a warning shot fired by … Continue reading PageRank restored to 5/10. Google issues warning on selling links
Diving. Unlike basketball, football, volleyball and badminton, where winning is defined by the number of points your team scores by the end of the game, the objective of diving is different: don’t die. We went diving over the weekend at the Paradise Island, a good 15 minute drive from Davao City, and though it may … Continue reading Diving at Paradise Island, Davao City
A great part of the reason why I joined b5media in 2005 was to expand my horizons with well known International bloggers. A few days ago, Rick Segal announced the official listing of the b5media advisory board. Among the board members are famous “blogtoonist” Hugh MacLeod, blogging star Robert Scoble, Doc Searls, Stowe Boyd, and … Continue reading b5media and our Board of Advisors
Spent the night at the NCCC mall for the ingress of the Mindanao Bloggers Summit. The evening was summarized by a lot of eating, Nintendo DS and moving stuff around. Big day tomorrow!
I’m miles away from the Leopard store launch in Greenbelt (allegedly, all the Apple Powermac employees are in Leopard spots make up). But this is the most I can give. I videotaped the countdown to Zero Hour. Was honestly expecting something grand to happen to the site. But still, I’m such a geek. Such an … Continue reading Rejoice! Leopard is here!
Juned: It was fun Jayvee: Is that the correct word? Juned: It was fulfilling! We talked about blogs, blogging, and using blogs as a teaching instrument in lesson plans. According to the teachers, high school students are very familiar with Friendster blogs as their means of self expression. Why not channel this enthusiasm into a … Continue reading Our First Certificate of Recognition!
Putting things in perspective, I believe the issue about the Google PR numbers game is at most, a relative discourse. Yuga says that bloggers should not rely on Google PageRank and Riz exposes the idea that PageRank is a wonky statistic. Let me give an analogy of how Google PageRank works in the light of … Continue reading Google PR is just a number and this is my miracle explanation why
Today is October 26 2007 in Philippine soil. In about a day’s time, Apple will make its biggest operating system announcement in the form of Leopard. The countdown on the Apple website current reads 17 hours to go. By that time I’ll be in Davao for the Mindanao Bloggers Summit, which means that I won’t … Continue reading Mac OS X Leopard in the Philippines
Aaron Brazell, our technology manager at b5media confirmed a suspicion I’ve kept to myself. A few weeks ago, Cellphone9.com dropped from a solid Google PageRank 6 to a 5 and then today, a 4. Darren Rowse’s ProBlogger also dropped from a towering 7 to a measly 4. Same goes for Brian Clark’s Copyblogger. Must be … Continue reading Thesis: Blog Networks should NOT rely on Text Link Ads or Google AdSense
Not to be confused with their portal, Mobius is currently working on their Blogger.com hosted blog titled The Tetris Effect. I’ve browsed through their entries and it seems to also be a place where you can stream Youtube videos of all their games, avail of promotions, submit fan art, and download their Mobius “blidget” which … Continue reading “The Tetris Effect” – Mobius Games has a blog
As almost any Macintosh user would hate to admit, I am torn between using Firefox and Safari as my default browser of choice. I love the versatility of Firefox, complete with the plugins and the sexy fact that it is developed as an open source project. But at the same time I’m also loving the … Continue reading Safari, oh how I love thee? (let me count the ways)
Thanks Riane, you’re such a geek.
I’ve always been fascinated at how the good public relations agencies master the art of The Spin. They are able to pitch, convince and communicate ideas and transmute them into a brand campaign, advocacy, or promotion. There is no moral judgement present in such cases as these awareness campaigns are to be taken as “amoral” … Continue reading The Spin
Amidst the tragic series of events that occurred last Friday, the Philippines continues to celebrate her freedom. The Mall of Asia iMAX parking lot was well attended yesterday, as October 20 2007 was marked as THANK YOU DAY PHILIPPINES. In this video, Bianca Gonzalez starts the countdown to the lauching of “Toblerone triangles” as the … Continue reading Toblerone Thank You Day at the iMAX video!
