2 Local Telecom Company Rivals on iPhone 4S

ads here too

If I'm not mistaken last December 15, a few hours before the release dates, two of the local's big and leading telecom company rivals on releasing their newest phone, the iPhone 4S.  Both companies set their dates on the same date making big decisions for phone users on which telecom company they would go to. The Globe and Smart Telecom!
Image on Globe's iPhone 4S feature and details page.

The same phone brand and the same features, I think the only thing that will change is the plan price per telecom company and of course what perks can each telecom company can offer. Still, the last say would be the buyer or the user of the phone.  It is their choice on which telecom company they would go to.

How about you?  Which telecom company do you prefer.

Reviewing Techs and Gadgets

ads here too

Reviewing technology products and electronic gadgets require good source of finances, contacts, and good writing skills.  Why did  I say these, well these three attributes are really necessary for a blogger, especially tech blogger, to have access on most of the latest technology products and gadgets available in the market today.  

Finances, of course isn't it obvious that these technology and gadgets are really expensive and buying them just to review and write what you think about the products is something not practical but of course if your wealthy enough and collecting gadgets is your hobby then go.

Contacts, if a blogger does have a wide range of friends, PR friends, and gadget store owners it would be easy to at least have a taste of the tech and gadget that you're going to review.  Some store owners and companies do lend their gadgets to bloggers for a review.  They call this as review unit.  So tech and gadget blogger enthusiast can a have a feel and taste of the unit but of course it should be returned afterwards.  If you're lucky and they decided to giveaway then it's yours.

Good writing skills, writing a very good and in-depth review of certain products helps the blogger be well-known in the blogosphere, as a result big companies will contact you and try to give you or lend you products and gadgets for you to review.  So it's more of "in return" for making a review of their products.

So if you're a start up tech blogger, you can simply start with what you have.  Once you're good enough maybe things will just follow.  Blogging for techs and gadgets doesn't have to be expensive.  Just write what your views are.

Android 4.0 PAD Ice Cream Sandwich

ads here too

When I first heard of the Ice Cream Sandwich the first thing that came into my mind was food and I was hungry during that time. Silly me!  Anyway for those who are newbies on Android, like me, the Ice Cream Sandwich is a program or application specifically for Androids.  This is my full understanding as for now.

According to Rockchip this Android 4.0 PAD will be or is the first Android 4.0-powered tablet in the world.   This tablet will be powered by Rockchip’s RK2918 processor, which will run on Ice Cream Sandwich to boot.  

For now this are my understanding about Androids so perhaps a more details learning should be done once I get a hold of an Android PAD or the like.

Headphones by The House of Marley

ads here too


This is the first time that I have heard of The House of Marley.  At first I really don't know if it is a group or a company but as I tried to look into it I figured it out that it was a company branding on headhones.  Silly me!  I should have thought that the Marley came from Bob Marley the Reggae Legend.

I have been featuring headphones and other head set and most of them I have tried and tested it but this one, since I wasn't able to see one yet here in our area, I don't yet have the say about this but basically based on the looks and the specification that is available online.

So I'll be hunting down this headphone from The House of Marley.  For the meantime here's the product feature.


  • Over-the-ear design for exceptional comfort even during long listening sessions. 20Hz-20+kHz frequency response adds clear sound reproduction. And a 50-millimeter dynamic moving coil speaker drive for sound reinforcement.
  • Right-angled, 3.5-millimeter gold-plated connector designed to fit with a variety of device cases and create a high-quality connection for sound.
  • Recyclable aluminum ring that’s high quality, adds to durability and keeps materials out of the waste stream.


  • 52" fabric cord. It helps reduce tangles and is specially engineered to cut down on static so you get that clear sound.
  • We’ve taken great care to create high-quality products that are good for the world. The same care went into our packaging. It’s made from pulp, recycled plastics and recycled paper, and less of them, to cut down on what goes in the waste stream. We urge you to please recycle these packages.
If you visit their site the last feature is actually included as part of their campaign in taking care of the environment.  To know more about their products just visit The House of Marley.

Last Saturday October 22, 2011, IP e-Games holds its 2nd Guild Congress at the SM Annex Cyberzone, an annual event that seeks to bring together and recognize the various guilds of their MMORPG (Massively Multiplayer Online RolePlaying Game) and online casual games.   I never knew that the gaming community was this big.  I can't hardly roam around in the event area.


On this event, the MMORPGs RAN Online and CABAL Online, online FPS (First Person Shooting) game, Point Blank, and online casual music games Audition Dance Battle and Bandmaster honors their guilds with special awards like the T-Shirt Design Contest and the Banner Contest, offline activities such as dance numbers and games and of course the tournaments.


Heidi Mendita-Garayblas, Vice President for IP e-Games' MMOG Products says that the Guild Congress provides them with the venue to honor and recognize various e-Games guilds that helped the gaming company nurture and grow its online community.  "IP e-Games is at 15 million users and still growing and we owe a lot of that to the gamers that have contributed tiem and effort to build that community.  This is just one of the many ways we're recognizing and honoring them."  With that big community it is indeed needs to be recognized even in some simple ways.


Aside from the tournaments and games that the attendees are playing there were also offline activities like the bring me contest,  the pizza eating contest and the dating game, which I'm sure everyone there did enjoy.  Also there were band performances to keep everyone alive, namely Join the Club and Paramita.  Join the Club vocalist did enjoy roam around with crowd and the smashing hit of the drums by the Paramita's drummer girl.  To complete the entertainment there were also dance number from the Audista Dancers (Audition Dance Battle players).


The event is not only for the Guild Congress but it also marks the kickoff to Road to Domination VI (R2D6) which is an opening salvo and pre-event celebration for the biggest single-day gaming celebration, e-Games Domination VI, RAN Online, CABAL Online, Point Blank, Audition Dance Batle and Bandmaster will hold their R2D6 Mega Manila Leg tournaments:

Winning teams from these matches will get awesome in-game items plus the coveted spot in the grand final tournaments at Domination VI.  Similar tournaments will be held in key cities in North and South Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao.

Miguel Bauza, IP e-Game Vice President for Marketing, said that just like last year's pre-Domination kickoff, R2D6 will be more exciting and geared towards gamers.

"R2D6 will be the awesome preview of what is to be expected during Domination VI.  E-Gamers will get online tournaments, unforgettable, offline activities and performances that'll involve our ever growing gaming community.  It'll be bigger and better."

The event also became the launch pad for new RAN Online, CABAL Online and Point Blank updates.  Some of the updates are the 177 and 187 skills, a range of new abilities for players of RAN Online; the Saint's Requiem patch for the CABAL Online; the Halloween Patch for players of Point Blank; and also the updates for the Audition Dance Battle and Bandmaster.

Pinoy Big Brother Unlimited Limited Edition Flash Drive

ads here too

At first, you would notice this little gadget as an ID card that you'll be swiping in your high tech office to get an access but hey it's a 4G USB Flash Drive.  Yes you're right it's a USB Flash Drive.  At first I didn't even know how to get the Flash Drive out.  After a few minutes of flipping and looking through it, I finally get it.  It was just a simple push to unlock it and then you swivel it outward of the card.  I thought I was supposed to slide it outwards.


Looking at it is just quite interesting because of its flatness and smallness.  Cool enough to have it around on your polo pocket.  Just don't put it in your wallet or your pant's back pocket because it's fragile and could break it instantly.  Well, gladly we were able to have this in the press conference of the Pinoy Big Brother Unlimited held last week.

Smell What You're Watching?

Hmm... A smell while watching your favourite movie? Sounds interesting oops I mean smells interesting. 

It seems that there was a French company who made a smelly device for cinemas. I wonder what does it feels and smells experiencing that kind of cinema.  The company was called Olf-Action, Olf which comes from olfactory sense.  The device that was created was called Odoravision and the smell track are being fitted into movies.

Image credit to their origin

I think they have a great output of their product that they will be releasing a similar device which is mainly for gaming and if possible for home cinema too.  They call this device as SMELLIT.  This is really interesting!  According to OhGizmo! this device was on display at the Lisbon Design Show.  I just don't know what are the reactions of the visitors and attendees during the design show.

The scents are listed here on this picture below.  I'm sure you will like some of it and some will be something that you will not.  I just hope there's an off button for it when it comes to bad odors.

Just a reminder avoid movies with lots of farting and other bad odors.  You might not enjoy what you are watching.

NET10's Semestral Break This October

ads here too

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Net10 for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

 

Net10 this October will be perhaps a good deal for most college students here in the Philippines, especially those exchange students and those who would go in the US to have their semestral break because this cell phone company is still one of the cheapest and value savers when it comes to communication expenses.  As we all know semestral break is a chance to have fun and relax for the students but of course parents also needs communication with them so this phone company will perhaps answer that call with Net10’s lowest, cheapest and great value of unlimited plans.  Aside from unlimited text of Net10 which students can inform their parents of their whereabouts and situations they also got their unlimited talk that can sure give assurance to parents of their young ones.

Students now a days are much well versed when it comes to gadgets and techie stuff so they would always prefer a very good and well designed gadgets that will suit their personality and needs. That’s what Net10 has install for most of the students, they got simple phones for simple needs, phones with essential features such as camera, video recorder, Bluetooth capability and mobile web which are all under $40.00.  They also got a full QWERTY keyboard phones, slider phones, and touch screen phones.  With these full features it is available for only under $60.00.

International Long Distance Service is also available to over 75 countries that only cost about 15 cents per minute on calls originated from US.  So parents will sure won’t have to worry about their students having semestral break in the US because these kids can call at them any time they want for a very minimal amount.

To learn more about Net10 just visit their site and check for some promos and details.  Here’s What Rob has to say and also some testimonies about Real NET10 customer.

Luxuriously Odd Shape Vehicle

Image is credited to its creator.

I have been featuring concept designs of vehicles and other strikingly futuristic vehicles but this one is really way more than futuristic in looks.  It's odd!  When I first saw this picture on coolest-gadgets.com the first thing came into my mind was a cyclops.  The one-eyed giant.

Though it looks futuristically montrous it got lots of interesting stuff in it.  It is called eleMMent RV, this 40-foot long vehicle has a 500 square feet of usable area, a master bedroom with a very cool 40-inch flatscreen, and a couch and a table that can be transformed into a bar and lounge.  This vehicle is actually a truck with a 500 horsepower which has a fireplace, a pop-upsky lounge and fog machine plus a feature of glowing paint in the dark and a very cool vehicle wash system.

According to the creator this vehicle is designed oddly to giveway for fuel efficiency and of course going green for the environment.

It think this is great for those who would always love to go on strange adventures and journey.

TDK Life On Record: WR700

ads here too

I only know TDK when I was in elementary and high school. That TDK was common in my dad’s cassette tapes. Yes! I’ve seen it only on cassette tapes and I think my dad got a pile of cassette tapes from TDK brands. I thought I would never hear something from TDK again. Honestly, I thought TDK was already lost not until I heard that brand again in the Bloggers Blowout Event that was sponsored by Astroplus, OrangeMagazineTV & LG. I was shocked at first because TDK… I thought they were lost already but it seems that they’ve just been quiet for quite some time and they were busy developing technologies for their head phones.

I think I have been preoccupied by those big names that have been popping out in audio stores and nearly forgot the brand that my dad had love for quite long years. Yes, TDK cassette tapes had been our friend during those days that my dad was far away from us. The clear voice of my dad on the TDK cassette tape recording makes it as if he was talking beside us and that’s how clear it is.

Though TDK was quiet and a little bit creepy crawling underneath those big names, they were able to release some of their head phones that are being used by some people.

2010 when they had released they newest product called the TDK WR700, still struggling beneath those big brand audio names they managed to poke in some holes on that mantle of the head phone mainstream.



Though I have been with some choirs and was trained by some of the members of the known choir groups in the country, I still lack the ability to be very much keen with regards to sound recognition. So, for the sake and for the benefit of those who are newbies into music and head phones let us both discover things about this certain product.

Specification Details first, which is based on the packaging itself.

Plug Type: 3.5 mm – this is the size of the plug being used. So basically it is the normal size used for headphones


Driver Diameter: 34mm – this is the size of the driver or maybe called as the speaker itself undressed of the glamour setup.

Frequency Response: 20-20,000Hz – does not know much about this but of what I understand it is the signal of the headphone to the transmitter.

Sensitivity at 1 kHz: 106±5dB – this speaks about the responded that you can hear even to the tiniest recordings.

Input impedance: 32 ± 10% ohms – not very much sure about this specifications so I will just leave it to the experts.

Transmitter Range: 10m – this the maximum distance that the transmitter and the headphone will be much effective.

Other specifications are…

Non-compressed Stereo Sound – Preserves original 16-bit 44 kHz-digital audio CD signal quality. Kleer does not compress the audio prior to transmission resulting in uncompromised quality.

Dynamic Channel Selection Minimizes Audio “Drops” – Audio streams in the robust 2.4 GHz ISM band. Dynamic channel selection allows the transmitter to monitor interference and switch to another channel if necessary. 10 Meter/33 Feet Transmitter-to-Headphones Range

Ultra-low Power Consumption – 2 AAA Batteries provide 30 to 40 hours of listening time.

What’s inside the box?

The whole box includes the following: Wireless headphones, 2.4 GHz transmitter, jack extension cord, storage case, plus (I just don't if this really comes in the box) 4 “AAA” batteries.

The Review

For the weight of the headphone I could say that it is just a common weight of around 170g - 200g for the headphone and for our head to carry it anywhere and in mobile.

Technology used for the wireless transmission is called Kleer, basically it is like Bluetooth but with much clearer reception. Based in which according to what I have heard during the demonstration and a firsthand experience, the music is quite clear enough to be heard. I just have not tried using the TDK WR700 with some interference in the area. Another amazing feature with the Kleer technology is that the wireless transmission can transmit from the device to transmission up to four TDK WR700 headphones. So basically the family only needs one transmission to transmit the audio recordings or movie up to four headphones makes it much quieter to watch movies during late night weekend.

Discovering and flipping the headphones. As I flip it around I have notice that the earmuffs can be folded inward of the headphone for easy storage. In one of the earmuffs’ outer cover has a removable cover in which two AAA batteries can be placed to let the headphone runs as it should be.

Design matters, well I like the color combination of grey and black. Simple, classy and it rocks.

The wireless transmission is also battery operated that's why it needs four AAA batteries for it to run. The proximity for the transmission to work is about 10 metters. The span is just right for you to go mobile without the hassle of wirings that might get you into trouble some time.

Four batteries are just right to keep you from using the gadget in a span of 30 to 40 hours of usage. You can enjoy a lot of good music with that span of time but of course you cannot go alive and awake in straight 40 hours. We all need to get some rest and sleep and that’s what is one of the main reason why the TDK headphones goes wireless.

To some it all, since I can only based my assessment in what I have experienced with the product I could say that the TDK WR700 is one great gadget to have when it comes to mobility while the listening experience is perfect enough just like what is their slogan “Life on Record”.
