Cebu Pacific to offer in-flight WiFi service

Relevance: 100%      Posted on: July 3, 2012

In January 1 of this year, we predicted that Cebu Pacific will offer WiFi internet service in their flights. Well, it looks like our prediction came true with Cebu Pacific announcing a partnership with OnAir to offer in-flight WiFi service. This make Cebu Pacific the first in the country (and probably one of the first few airlines in region as well) to have internet service during flights. Once Internet OnAir is in service, Cebu Pacific passengers will be able to access the Internetduring flights and make calls using Voice Over IP applications, using their Wi-Fi enabled personal electronic devices, such…

BoB flies to Cebu

Relevance: 92%      Posted on: April 28, 2007

The Band of Bloggers flew to Cebu last night aboard the Cebu Pacific Airlines. We're now en route to Tagbilaran, Bohol for our 3-day tour. The Macalua strikes again with his series of unfortunate events and misses our flight. I hope he gets an earful from the Sharmskee. They'll be catching up early today and hopefully with no more misfortunes. We spent the night at Cebu City thinking we could burn the night away at some bar (Tapas Lounge) without sleep then head on to the SuperCat port for the first early morning trip. We also met several Cebu bloggers.…

In addition to allowing the members of the media to be acquainted with the Vibe Shot, Lenovo also launched three new budget-centric notebook PCs namely the Ideapad 100 (14 and 15-inch variants), Z41 and the Z51.

Failed Cebu Pacific e-Ticketing

Relevance: 85%      Posted on: February 9, 2006

If any of you have ever tried booking online for a domestic flight from Cebu Pacific, lucky you. I have been trying to get a reservation for plane tickets the whole day without success. Cebu Pacific has this new e-Ticketing feature on their website which promises hassle-free traveling, or so they say. Cebu Pacific now lets you fly without a paper ticket. When you buy a Cebu Pacific e-Ticket, we electronically store your ticket information in our computer system instead of issuing you a paper ticket, so you won't need to worry about losing something that's non-replaceable. Scheduling was ok,…

Cebu Pacific Air now with In-flight WiFi via OnAir

Relevance: 80%      Posted on: June 2, 2014

We just took a Cebu Pacific flight from Manila to Taiwan this evening to attend the annual Computex exhibition in Taipei. We already knew and reported about Cebu Pacific rolling out in-flight WiFi on some of their international flights but this is the first time we were able to try it out. The service is offered by OnAir which we already tried before in another flight (Delta Airlines). The WiFi service is based on bandwidth allocation and costs $5 for 25MB and $10 for 50MB. Payment is via credit card. We tried it to see how fast the WiFi was…

Why brand matters with laptops and not desktops?

Relevance: 74%      Posted on: June 30, 2012

I posted this question a couple of days ago on Twitter and got a barrage of really insightful responses. Why do brand names have a huge influence when picking a laptop but not a desktop? Many years ago, when I bought my very first laptop, I got a white label unit. It was affordable (30% less than equivalent branded units), had decent specs and passable design. Today, I no longer find those kinds of laptops in stores. In the case of my desktop PC, I bought might from parts and assembled them myself. No branded cases and no familiar logo…

We got 3 brand new laptops from MSI this week to test out and the first two were 14-inch laptops running on an Intel Core i3 processor -- the MSI CR420 and the MSI CX420. The two are almost twins, only separated at birth with the one having a more powerful discreet graphics card while the other uses the integrated graphics from Intel.

HSDPA laptops in 2007

Relevance: 71%      Posted on: December 28, 2006

I mentioned this to the girls over at Globe the last time we had a thanksgiving dinner. Since Laptops with built-in HSDPA cards are starting to come out, would it not be a good marketing idea to bundle these rigs with SIM cards. HP is coming out with one model, Compaq 6400, while Lenovo is partnering with Cingular to do the same. Dell signed a deal with Vodafone to offer the same 3G-ready laptops (Dell Latitude D420) and I think Acer has one too. If them telcos can easily snag new customers by bundling cellphones with postpaid plans even at…

Packet 1 Networks (P1) Malaysia, together with Intel launched the country's first WiMax-Ready 4G laptops today. While P1 has been in the WiMax service in Malaysia for about 2 years now, this is the first time they introduced 4G-ready laptops. Several laptop manufacturers were there to introduce their own WiMaX-enabled laptops and netbooks. Present were Asus, Acer, Dell, Lenovo, MSI and Toshiba and all the laptops had Intel's embedded WiMax + WiFi chip (Centrino Advanced-N + WiLax 6250). The embedded chips can do both WiFi and WiMax but only works one at a time (WiMax on while WiFi off or…

Almost 4,000 laptops seized by the the Bureau of Customs will be donated to the Department of Education (DepEd) to aid students and teachers in public elementary and high schools nationwide. In December 2011, the Bureau of Customs seized a total of 3,915 entry-level ASUS laptops from consignee ORZA Marketing for undervaluation and misdeclaration. Although the plan to donate the said laptops to DepEd was already approved in 2012, it took time to waive the storage, demurrage, and other port charges. Section 2503 of the Tariffs and Customs Code of the Philippines mandates the outright seizure and forfeiture in favor…
