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

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.

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.
