MRT’s new crowd control measures: Better or Worse?

Relevance: 100%      Posted on: December 18, 2013

The Metro Rail Transit management has recently implemented a new crowd control scheme in the hopes of “improving” the passengers’ commute experience, as well as freeing up some space in the ever-crowded North Avenue station. The management’s solution was to enforce a by-batch-entry system wherein 500 passengers will only be allowed to enter the station and wait to aboard a train, at any given time. According to Al Vitangcol, the current GM of MRT, the new scheme will minimize the number of passengers who are flocking the North Avenue station to ride the train.

Voice Control on the Ford Fiesta

Relevance: 84%      Posted on: August 17, 2010

Ford Philippines finally launched the Ford Fiesta in the country yesterday and one of their PR reps asked me to check out the Voice Control on the Sport model of the Fiesta. At first I thought this was the Ford Sync they've already introduced in the US and other countries but turns out it's a more simplified version (they just call it Voice Control). Voice Control allows you to control and tune the FM radio, an iPod, a USB drive with mp3 music, and a mobile phone connected via Bluetooth. A small unidirectional microphone picks up all the voice commands…

Sony AM/FM ICF-620R Card Radio

Relevance: 81%      Posted on: December 10, 2010

So I've finally gotten some time to unbox some of the trinkets and stuff I've gotten from Japan. Most of them are Apple accessories but this AM/FM pocket radio from Sony looked nifty. There were actually 2 variants when I first saw this -- one is just an AM Tuner and this other one which is an AM/FM Tuner. The AM Radio Card costs about 3,000 yen while the AM/FM Radio Card like this one is 5,500 yen. I got the latter with a painting of Mt. Fuji on the cover. Other designs cost a bit more (6,000 yen). The…

LG FB163 Hi-Fi Stereo System Review

Relevance: 80%      Posted on: March 27, 2009

The LG FB163 kick-ass stereo system, DVD player and iPod dock all in a single compact yet elegant box. Too bad I had to return the unit back after 3 weeks of taking center stage in my living room. Despite it small size, this 2.1 audio system pumps out great audio and a powerful bass with a 160-watt speakers. This system is very versatile and can do pretty much everything you need from a stereo system. It's a movie player with a single-disc vacuum-loading CD and DVD slot accessible at the top along with the control buttons. I was able…

Why mobile phones have no AM Radio?

Relevance: 79%      Posted on: October 15, 2008

About a year ago, I asked the guys at Nokia Singapore why they don't have AM radio tuners to pair with the millions of FM tuner capable phones they develop. I thought the answer was in the north of physics, something that had to do with frequency modulation and amplitude modulation. I guessed wrong. The truth is, it's largely got to do with market demand. Who would want to use AM radio on their phones? I told them, AM radio is still hot and raging in the Philippines especially with regular folks that listen to news. The other day, one…

Centralized Google AdSense Ad Management

Relevance: 78%      Posted on: October 24, 2007

Google just announced an upcoming change in its AdSense Program that allows Publishers to modify their ads without changing the code. The ad code management will then be centralized in the AdSense panel. This new ad management feature means that your ad unit settings (such as colors and channels) for new AdSense for content ad units will be saved in your AdSense account every time you generate ad code. Then, if you'd like to change any of these settings in the future, all you do is make the update within your account -- you'll no longer need to manually replace…

Is Social Media saving Radio?

Relevance: 76%      Posted on: June 15, 2011

Is Social Media saving Radio? Or, is it the other way around? I don't regularly listen to radio nor watch TV and the only time I tune in is when I'm driving. For some time now, I've noticed that both AM and FM radio channels have actually embraced social media -- specifically Facebook, Twitter and UStream. DZMM is heavy on Facebook and a lot of FM stations and DJs are promoting their Twitter and UStream account to interact with their listeners. There are fewer calls and text messages being read on-air. I guess because the internet is more scalable and…

More Podcasts than Radio Worldwide

Relevance: 75%      Posted on: March 30, 2006

While listening to The Liberal Times Manila podcast, one of the hosts, Dr. Meinardus, was discussing about the growth of podcasting as an alternative to radio. Stats-wise, podcasts has now outnumbered radio stations all over the world. Podcast Like A Champ quotes SiliconRepublic which pegs the total number of radio stations worldwide to 36,000. While the iTunes website only has a figure of 35,000 podcasts , Feedburner is serving around 44,099 podcasts as of today. The figure could be much higher than that. Will podcasting replace radio? Maybe not (yet), but it sure eats away some of the airtime. [tags]podcast…
