Baguio Stills

Relevance: 100%      Posted on: August 11, 2005

One of the list of things I really wanted to do in Baguio was to shoot stills. My handy digital Canon Ixus 30 never fails me to get the best shots in every trip I make. The good thing about Baguio weather is that daytime is not too bright and the clouds are just enough to provide scattered light. The result is a crisp and bright color as shown here: The beauty of Baguio, captured in stills. :) Complete gallery here.

Smart 3G to Baguio

Relevance: 95%      Posted on: November 1, 2006

Just after midnight today, we headed off to Baguio City to spend the holiday. I brought my Globe Visibility account with me and I borrowed my cousin's 3G phone (N6680) so we could road test both 3G connectivity along the way. I am trying to do some head to head comparison of both services during our stay here, the results of which will be posted later. Ok, moving on with some points to ponder for Smart 3G: 3G does not always mean broadband speeds. While your conection will automatically switch between GRPS to 3G, whichever is faster, do not expect…

Relevance: 76%      Posted on: November 10, 2013

The country's leading mobile service providers are keen on restoring their services in Tacloban after the devastation brought by Super Typhoon Yolanda. When Super Typhoon Yolanda landed on Leyte last Friday, strong winds and flood brought by a strong storm surge caused massive power and communication outage. Even TV networks had a hard time restoring their facilities to bring live feed of the current situation in the region. As for mobile communication, cell sites were knocked down making the city isolated from the rest of the country. As of writing, Globe was able to bring back partial communication services by…

Globe cuts off service on Black Nazarene due to security

Relevance: 63%      Posted on: January 9, 2012

If you are wondering why there's no cellular signal around Quiapo and neighboring areas from Globe and other telcos today, it's because they've cut off signal for security reasons as we celebrate the Black Nazarene. Globe has been sending out notices via Twitter/FB (and just now, via SMS) that this is in accordance to government requests. The President has earlier made an announcement that terror threats have been raised to coincide with the feast of the Black Nazarene in Quiapo. The request to cut off cell signal in those areas could be a precautionary measure (probably to hinder remotely-triggered bombs).…

How to Increase Your WiFi Signal

Relevance: 61%      Posted on: September 12, 2007

Whenever I'm on trips and billeted in wifi-enabled hotels, I still always end up on a floor where the signal is poor or non-existent. Either I go down to the lobby to get some good reception or position really close to the glass windows hoping to sniff a bar or two of wifi signal. Little did I realize I can actually increase the wifi signal using stuff commonly found around the house. See this YouTube video for a short demo: Hat tip to Mark Erickson of Infinite Solutions for this neat trick. I think the LAN cable and the 3G…

How to position your WiFi router to get best signal

Relevance: 60%      Posted on: September 2, 2014

That is probably a question a lot of people ask when installing a new WiFi router at home. The answer was provided by Jason Cole in this rather highly mathematical (more like physics actually) demonstration in his own apartment. By positioning the WiFi router at an optimal location, we could get a better reception. Jason Cole shows us how does that look like in this model.2 This area mapping provides a more visual display of how signal strength is affected by obstructions or interference and signal refraction. If only we could also have a simple tool such as this to…

The Death Grip Test on Antenna Signal

Relevance: 59%      Posted on: July 20, 2010

Steve Jobs said all smartphones have this problem -- hold it in a certain way and your phone signal goes down. Was curious so I wanted to try this one several of the phones I have here - the Galaxy S, Xperia X10 and Desire. So I tried holding these 3 phones in every possible way to see if I could somehow affect the signal strength. Fortunately, all the 3 Android phones have this built-in "Signal Strength" monitor which is measured in -dBm (an abbreviation for the power ratio in decibels). If you have an Android phone, you can see…

Relevance: 57%      Posted on: November 12, 2014

Samsung has long been criticized for not using metal on their flagship devices’ body. But just when the South Korean giant finally succumbed to the overwhelming request of their patrons and released the Galaxy A3 & A5, they face another obstacle on their new metal-clad handsets – Weak Signal Strength. According to the test that conducted, the two smartphones have weaker cellular signal compared to the Samsung Galaxy S5 which sports a plastic body. In order to be methodical about their approach, the site tested all of the three handsets (Galaxy S5, Galaxy A3 and Galaxy A5) in the…
