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.

2010 – Goals

January 5, 2010

Let’s all welcome 2010 with a BANG! =)

Below are some of the stuff that I’d like to accomplish this year:

  • Acquire a driver’s license (by March or April)
  • Save
  • Eat healthy
  • Lessen alcohol intake – drink more water and fruit juices
  • Become physically fit (join urbanathlons!)
  • Be more active in photography
    • attend workshops
    • buy a Nikkor 50mm f/1.8 lens (try out portraiture)
    • buy a Phottix battery grip (to add weight and battery life to my camera)
    • buy a SB-600 external flash (try out strobing)
    • buy a tripod (for night photography)
  • Travel (international/local)
  • Help a person in need (my brother most probably)

I’ll be posting my work related goals soon.

Globe and CD-R King visit

August 16, 2009

I recently paid a visit to Globe to check if there are any technical specifications required for a USB extension cable to be used for their Tattoo USB modem as the one that I’ve recently bought from CD-R king (Price: 30 pesos) was not working on my laptop. They told me that the cable only needed to be USB 2.0 compliant. We then tested the cable in the Macbook at the Globe center and the modem was successfully detected by the broadband management software (this nearly made me want to buy a Macbook. haha). During this visit, I was lucky enough to speak to a more knowledgeable after-sales agent. I asked the agent, about my rant regarding their WIZ access which really seemed misleading due to the explanation of their sales agent before (link here). Back to the story, the sales agent easily gave me an answer to my question.

Sales agent: “Sir the account name for the WIZ spot is the mobile number of the sim and the password is ********”.

I wasn’t able to get the name of the sales agent though. I wanted to commend him for knowing what he is selling – unlike his colleague.
