LG Optimus One Sale = Ultimate Fail

November 14, 2010

When I first saw the ad about the LG Optimus One sale at Yugatech’s blog, I didn’t decide at once that I will attend the said event since I really like to purchase an HTC or Samsung phone if I’ll be going to the Android path.

It was only Friday (Nov 12) that I decided that I will try my luck on the said event because I would have been able to purchase an Android phone at a really low price then use the remaining budget to buy something else.

Resto-Rant: expensive dining in NY by the president and party

August 11, 2009

Upon checking Inquirer.net, I’ve stumbled upon the recent articles about the alleged whooping-1 million peso worth of dining expenses by our President and the members of the US trip party. As usual, the impending issue here is the thought that the expenses may have been part of or may have been the people’s /taxpayer’s money. Who wouldn’t be mad at the thought that your hard-earned money, deducted via tax, is being used to fill the stomachs of our politicians with really expensive food while we on the other hand are trying to make ends meet with what is left of our meager salary?

In some of the articles over the Web, it is stated that the expense for the meals were personal or were from their own pockets. Some stating that the dinner was a gift from Rep. Romualdez for the anniversary of President Arroyo and FG. We know that majority of our government officials are not part of the lower and middle bracket of society’s economic pyramid. Most of them are from rich families, political dynasties, etc. From my point of view, it would really be hard to run for a political position without a large sum of money even though you have a really good platform or governance plan.

Globe WIZ Spot access for Globe Visibility/Tattoo: Misleading marketing strategy

August 5, 2009

Yesteday I applied for a Globe Tattoo postpaid plan. There are three main reasons that I’m going for the Globe wireless plan. First, Smart’s SMARTBro is not quite ok based from most of the people I know who has subscribed to their service (both prepaid and postpaid). Second, Sun cellular’s wireless broadband coverage does not seem to reach my area. Heard a lot of good stuff about Sun’s broadband service, though their coverage is really their weakness eversince they started out in the telecoms business. Should they have a wider range or stronger signal coverage, I’d definitely go for their wireless broadband. My last reason for subscribing to Globe’s Visibility/Tattoo service is that I’ve already tested it at my current place and it worked fine for me during the time that I needed to work from home.

Since I already have an existing postpaid mobile plan with them, the application for the postpaid Visibility/Tattoo kit was seamless. I only had to have a valid ID with me and needed to fill up a quite short application form. While filling out the form, I asked the sales agent some questions about the Globe Visibility/Tattoo service and she was able to answer me well enough.
