Eastwood City is WiFi City

Well, that’s what the AirborneAccess website says — that Eastwood City in Libis is the first and only WiFi City in the country.

Scrimping on Internet

Since I don’t have unlimited access to wifi internet in my hotel room, I am forced to conserve whatever time I get from the limited and costly access I get (~Php360/hour). And to think I thought Airborne Access and Globe WiZ’s Php100/hour is already very expensive. Ones is constantly challeged to maximize the usage. Check […]

What are the odds of 3 DSL providers down?

Yup, all 3 of them are down. 1) PLDT myDSL is down — no conneciton since 10PM last night. NO dial tone on the phone lines as well. 2) Smart Bro is down — slower than a slug since last night. Only 3 out of 20 pings get a response. You’re lucky if you could […]

Google’s ad-supported free wifi

CNN reports that Google has recently applied for patents on delivering free wifi and ads. SEORoundTable explains the 3 Wireless Advertising Patent Applications.

Working @ Starbucks

No, not serving coffee. Just working the afternoons here at Starbucks, Walter Mart (at the corner of Pasay Road and Don Chino Roces Ave.,) This branch offers Globe WiZi (WiFi Zone) instead of the usual Airborne Access (so AA is not really exclusive to Starbucks, huh?). However, I sniffed thru 4 other wifi connections and […]

Getting the best out of AdSense

I intended to post a more comprehensive entry about Google AdSense for some time now but refrained from it because of AdSense AUP. Likewise, they did not allow us (AdSense members) to publish any details of our account earnings. They have since allowed publishing of revenues except for CTR and CPM stats just weeks ago. […]

Still suffering from ISP dis-connectivity

Over at PTB, Arnold is taking a spot survey from readers on the status of their ISP’s connectivity. For my end, it’s still spotty. There will be times that the speeds are decent (though not at par with normal) and there will be times that it’s totally useless to go online. I have PLDT myDSL […]
