EDIT: If you’re looking for more TORQUE products, check out the cheapest dual SIM phone in the market, the TORQUE D100. There’s a different philosophy behind reviewing entry level phones – more than features, people tend to look at price, but with the way the mobile phone market is becoming more and more sophisticated, even … Continue reading TORQUE C100 Review: Bluetooth and camera for P2,199
A few weeks ago I won a Nokia N79 from a raffle from Nokia. Having really wanted the semi-brand new E71 in its stead, I bargained for a swap since the latter was a tad cheaper in price mainly due to an earlier release date. The E71 is a fantastic QWERTY business device and my … Continue reading Nokia E63 retails for P14,200 in the Philippines
I can’t help but be sentimental as its nearing the end of the year. And today I’d like to talk about remembering your roots. The best TV appearance I ever made was in a recent show of a friend whom I met at the UA&P. His name is John D Borra and aside from running … Continue reading “Flowers from the Rubble”
As a niche leader in comfortable bags, Crumpler also produces some of the most bizzare schwag. Thanks to the generosity of Charlie Paw at last night’s PhilMUG party we have the chance to do an official unboxing and and first impression run of the Loo Roll, Crumpler’s tissue roll that doubles as a paint by … Continue reading Unboxing Crumpler Loo Roll with Road Test: Two thumbs up!
In the tradition of PhilMUG Christmas parties, there are always more prizes to be raffled than guests! Everyone went home with something – alongside TuneCard gifts, iCreate magazines and Crumpler mini matches and Loo Rolls! I raffled off five Defactory pouches (made to fit an iPod) and a BodyGuardz iPod touch protector. A huge thanks … Continue reading PhilMUG 2008 Christmas Party Photo Overload!

This review begins with a short story involving a small, nonchalant “reunion” of myself, Lorraine Javalera from Samsung Mobile and MJ Cordova who does their PR. After the media was toured through the new features and specs of the M8800 Pixon camera phone, I was able to do some catching up with both girls — … Continue reading Samsung Pixon M8800 Photos and Review
I’m slowly becoming a convert to huge digital downloads. I wasn’t a big fan of torrents because of my relatively slow connection but the recent news that Left 4 Dead might not be available on retail for the PC in Datablitz (it might be available elsewhere) made me shell out cash instead for a digital … Continue reading Left 4 Dead: Rally for Philippine Steam community
There’s more to this audio book that meets the ear. The one and only reason why I recommend this free audio book is because it is read by TWiT founder and radio personality Leo Laporte! If you’re an avid TWiT Netcast listener, Leo would occasionally mention that he’s working on something with the guys from … Continue reading Leo Laporte reads The True Story of the Little Golden Hood for Audible
This is not the first time we’ve seen interesting partnerships between banks and technology companies. Back then, Blizzard released the World of Warcraft VISA card that allows rebates to additional gaming hours. Not a bad deal if you’re really into WoW. But perhaps, for the rest of us, the new offer from Nokia might seem … Continue reading Nokia Standard Chartered VISA makes it easy to buy Nokia phones
[Click photo to enlarge] With the launch of their first concept store in SM Mega Mall earlier last month, Toshiba is also wrapping up 2008 with their YEAR END SALE, with up to 60% markdown on brand new units! Note that the sale is not going to be in the concept store, but in the … Continue reading TOSHIBA Year End Sale! December 4-5 2008
[Off topic] Happy weekend! There are such rare occasions when I get invited – not directly, but as a date to beauty events. Such is life, and the last “beauty event” I attended was the new Shu Uemura store launch at The Powerplant Mall in Rockwell. I didn’t care much for the make up and … Continue reading One skin care product all men should consider using
Just came from the launch of HTC’s new Touch line of smartphones. The most interesting part of the evening wasn’t part of the official program – we were shown some of the embedded Easter Eggs for the HTC Touch HD. With the 3.8 inch screen, you slightly tap the upper left and right sides of … Continue reading HTC Touch HD Easter Egg: Weather Animation
The year was 1999 and barely out of high school, I heard of an events group called “Big Fish.” I admit I was a late bloomer in the clubbing scene and have steered away from big room events in favor of the usual dinner plus movie night outs. Add the Ozone Disco Inferno incident back … Continue reading Contest: 10 TICKETS for Trance Alliance with DJ Fleming and Digital Blonde
I’m halfway through Predictably Irrational by Dan Ariely and I must say that this is my new marketing bible for observing the seemingly irrational behavior of consumers when certain buzz word concepts like “free,” “value added,” “extra” and “unlimited” are brought into the marketing copy. It’s a beautiful book — and if you’re the type … Continue reading Predictably Irrational: Perceived value with “bottomless” “unlimited” and “cheap”
