“When you play the game of thrones, you win or you die. There is no middle ground.” — Cersei Lannister Well it’s one of the best works of fantasy ever written. It is also coming soon into an original HBO series. SO when I saw a starter box set of A Game of Thrones for … Continue reading George R. R. Martin’s ‘A Game of Thrones’ Card Game
I was in the tail end of nursing a fever when the doorbell rang and a messenger dropped off two Torque phones. Usually, deliveries such as these would come with a lot of PR information but in this particular case, all it came with were the two units (not boxed, no accessories) and a sheet … Continue reading TORQUE GD55 and G88: Cheapest Dual SIM Android Phones
I was thinking of doing a live blog series over the course of my stay at the Shangri-La Boracay but the laid back island and hints that summer is full blown made me retire that thought (see photos for reference and tell me if you’d want to work in this condition of paradise). Destination Boracay … Continue reading SONY Bloggie MHS-PM5K enters the video sharing market at PHP 14,999

I was introduced to Bang! over the 2009 holidays during the course of several get togethers with my childhood friends. More than anything, it was an instant addiction (apart from this other card game we played — the Munchkin series by Steve Jackson) and became integral to any sit down gathering we had in any … Continue reading Unboxing Bang! The Bullet
Whoaa nelly! I’ve always been curious about TORQUE’s roadmap in the Philippines. As a China sourced phone with local branding (TORQUE’s local endorser is Luis Manzano), they’ve made some rather humorous moves in the industry, one of which is this E72 / E71 clone, the DQ500. TORQUE’s PR lent me a few phones to try … Continue reading TORQUE DQ500 looks like the E72: PHP 4,999.00
Japan sound bite Super Nintendo sound bites Ahh, the best sound effect ever.
May your “S” channels and your partner’s “T” channels always match amplitudes for dual resonance. May you all find your life’s String Theory to reconcile your view of quantum mechanics. May both your hadrons collide. May your bosons have integer spin. May you discover each other’s Higgs. And may your black holes violate the second … Continue reading A Valentine’s Message
I’m intrigued with TORQUE’s latest flagship phone for a couple of reasons. In terms of its positioning, it’s supposed to be the classiest of the el cheapo dual SIM phones (LOL!). The mobile’s real estate is covered in metal with the familiar red and black F1 Ferrari colors in leather on the upper back of … Continue reading Dual SIM TORQUE F1 Metal at PHP 3,999.00
Sony VAIO Z Series (VPCZ116GG/B) Specs Last week I attended Sony’s VAIO launch and they revealed the availability of the new VAIO Z series. Sure, it’s great that we have product specs in press releases but it is double awesome that Rico is launching what I predict to be a valuable resource for tech bloggers. In … Continue reading Demonstrating Spectograph: Sony VAIO Z series
JBL, so nice!
Apparently there were three sets of launches yesterday — one for the morning shows, a mid-day “lunch launch” for the media and an evening with the online community. I made like a BLT and sandwiched myself into the noon event. Great event. Sony launched the new VAIO line, which was shown in CES last year. … Continue reading Catching my attention with the Sony VAIO F series
OK let’s take a break from tech. Here’s an epic dessert idea I came up with which I shared with Paolo Manzano of HWM during the Samsung OMNIA II seminar. This is a variation of a dessert idea where you drown a serving of ice cream with a shot of espresso. Paging Lori! So the … Continue reading The Epic Espresso Dessert
