LG unveils L Series III Dual SIM Android phones, starts at PHP 4,790

LG has been moving up on the popularity curve with its past few iterations of smartphones. The LG G2 (with buttons on the back) is a keen example of how the other South Korean electronics company is making strides. The new L Series III smartphones are Android Kitkat powered, have crisp IPS screens and are all packed with a Dual Core 1.2GHz processor. All are dual-SIM phones which makes this line a huge deal in the budget + performance category. If you’re brand-conscious, LG is definitely reputable.

The L Series III cements itself in the budget category with the L70 at P8,490 and L40 at P4,790. The L80 will be available in the Philippines this May.

Video: The Coral Garden

If I were to summarize the Anilao experience into one dive site, it would have to be an area called Batok, a rich reef located right behind Sombrero Island. Huge barrel sponges seascapes with the divine hand, flat table corals lined with hovering juveniles and fry and fan corals that pipe the currents like wind.

Enjoy!

Video: Diving the USAT Liberty Wreck in Tulamben, Bali

Did two dives at the famed USAT Liberty Wreck in Bali, Indonesia last month. I’m a little jealous of the fact that the locals have easy access to one of the most beautiful wreck dives in modern history. A shore entry from the resort and a few meters down leads you to this humongous America cargo vessel that was sunk by a torpedo during WWII. There were no casualties as the ship was already parked. Years of current drifted this wreck to the nearby shore.

Internal Online Meetings: What Goes in and How to Make the Most out of it!

Business meetings for any company are a time to discuss anything from new ideas, to new opportunities, or any number of things. There are also many different mediums to have business communications. One medium in particular that has been proven effective for progressive meetings is the face to face meeting. The reason is because having a face to face conversation not only allows you to hear what the other person is saying, but see how they are saying it; meaning non-verbal body language indicators. As a matter a fact, statistics show that only 7% of communication is spoken, the other 93% consists of the tone of voice and the body language. This makes it easier for there to be a mis-communication unless both parties are able to see each other. It’s important to understand this point because internal business meetings are a crucial time to make sure the company is on track. For example, meetings can be a time:

Thief: A reboot from out of the shadows

Mediocre reviews towards the reboot of the Thief franchise can be credited to how the stealth genre has changed in the past decade. In a sense, stealth has been “perfected” in may different ways: Mark of the Ninja on one end of the spectrum turning sneaking into an arcade platform jumper while Splinter Cell, Deus Ex: HR and Hitman have carved their own niches into to action-stealth genre. And then there’s Dishonored, which in my opinion is Thief’s spiritual successor.

Sony Cyber-shot RX-100 Mark II Review: Look no further. This is the best point and shoot camera.

This review has been sitting on draft for quite some time. For one, I’m reviewing a camera that was released during the latter part of 2013 so by all means it isn’t new. Secondly, it’s hard to write this review without removing my fanboy cap. This is seriously the best point and shoot camera available in Sony’s stable of imaging devices. I’d even go as far as to say that this is the best point and shoot camera in its class, especially when you’re looking at devices in the PHP 30,000 range. So yeah, let’s fanboy away.

888poker Launches Snap, a fast fold game of poker

They say that advances and innovations on the web, especially with social media and always come from two sources: online gambling and yes, probably, pornography. The former is safer to talk about for all intents and purposes.

888poker, one of the leading online poker sites has just introduced a new feature on the virtual tables — Snap Poker. After going through its alpha and beta phases which were only open to a select few, the new table features a SNAP fold trigger that can be pressed to discard your current opponents and immediately insert you with new opponents done via the in-game algorithm ladder ranking.

This underwater video is really good. But there’s something this photographer isn’t telling you..

Like my click-bait title? I swear these types of headlines are annoying. So yeah the video is awesome. But what “I didn’t tell you” is that I didn’t use any artificial light for this. My only light source was the sun!

See what I did there? LOL.

Anyway, over the weekend, we got the Sony RX-100 Mark II wet! Yep, we bought a new camera system for underwater photography. Not that I’m totally ditching my old Canon 350D — but a circa 2006 camera w/ 5MP in it can be a bit frustrating to use. They say that the best camera is the camera you currently have, so I currently have a Sony DSC RX-100 Mark II, a follow up to 2012’s RX-100. I will do a full review of the camera out of water in a separate post.

Let’s watch!

Just finished Act I of Broken Age. I want to hug you, Tim Schafer!

Finished Act 1 of Broken Age last night. It needs to be said that this is Tim Schafer’s first point and click adventure game in 15 years which means to say that my last encounter with him in this familiar space was during my teenage years when Grim Fandango, Day of the Tentacle and Full Throttle were kings of the adventure genre.
