He chanced upon a material called “Decorative Vynil for Glass” which is similar to self adhering film. He bought a roll which cost roughly 10 dollars and with that “Big Ass Roll” [...]

Microsoft Zune Hotness Worldwide?

They’ve got a great backend system there, since that’s where they’re from - I’d say with the advent of the iTunes Music (and Video) Store, prepaid cards and iTMS accounts are hot.

MBP Core 2 Duo User Review

One of my friends Carlo recently got his hands on a Macbook Pro Core 2 Duo. He’s one of the first people I know here in the Philippines to get his hands on this baby. We’ve been talking about this for the past few weeks. He was in fact considering to get a Macbook Pro [...]
