Will podcasting pick up in the Philippines?

Somebody asked me that last week and I sort of said more on the negative side. Mostly, I’m optimistic when it comes to the area of blogging but with podcasts, I’m still a bit skeptical. I actually don’t know. Maybe in terms of podcast listeners, it would pick up fast, but not so much with […]

Sony Xperia S Review

So the Sony and Ericsson affair has finally ended and the mobile tech world is waiting for Sony to reveal its pure blood offspring the way they would for the next pope.

Huawei E5 “Pocket MiFi” Review

There was a time when mobile Internet was considered a luxury service. It was only limited to corporate executives who needs mobile Internet to access Outlook emails and SharePoint files. Globe’s Visibility and Smart WeRoam were still uber expensive and you’re locked with a contract. Prepaid 3G or even EDGE connection is non-existent.
