Photography & Philippine Civil Aviation Law

Relevance: 100%      Posted on: March 19, 2007

We were on board a Cebu Pacific plane back here in Manila this afternoon when during flight, Eyb took pictures of the clouds thru the cabin window. We were then approached by the stewardess saying that the Philippine Civil Aviation Law does not allow taking of pictures of "Philippine lands", or that's how I heard/understood it. That's odd. All these years that I've been taking pictures from inside a commercial plane during flight, I've never been told that. Maybe, it's a new thing? Could be connected to the new anti-terror law, perhaps? Funny how new policies always ends up being…

After a period of beta testing, the software giant started seeding the update for an improved version of the Xbox 360 Dashboard.

The Tour at the Qualcomm Museum

Relevance: 92%      Posted on: December 2, 2012

It was a pretty interesting tour going around the Qualcomm Museum last week as we saw the chip and wireless development in mobile phones thru the decades. Here are some of the more interesting stuff we found in there. The company was founded in 1985 by MIT and USC Alumnus and was based in San Diego, California. Qualcomm manufactured their own phones as early as 1990. They don't really look like mobile phones but more like a pay phone because of the sheer size. These were just made for testing and around 13 units were manufactured that year. Only two…

A visit to the Philips Museum in Eindhoven, Netherlands

Relevance: 92%      Posted on: October 1, 2014

Earlier this week, we flew to The Netherlands to attend the Philips Innovation Experience 2014 in Eindhoven, Netherlands along with close to 90 global media. Eindhoven is the hometown of Philips when it started over 100 years ago. May people even considered that the town was built by Philips when it opened the first light bulb factory here (the museum is now where the original factory was). A section of the museum was preserved the way it looked like back in 1891 with all the materials used to make the incandescent bulb, complete with the cotton filaments and all. It…

Nepal gets Battery-Powered Cars

Relevance: 72%      Posted on: May 27, 2008

Shree Eco Visionary (SEV) of Nepal has developed battery-powered vehicles from ordinary car batteries. All the more we should be convinced that high-tech innovations can be developed via low-tech means. Their 3-wheeler electric vehicles have been plying the streets of Kathmandu on AC power since 2004. The vehicles run on 2 packs of 6 batteries -- one on the front and another at the back side. The charger can be hooked up on regular house sockets (15 amps) for around 7 to 8 hours. Speed can reach up to 70 kmph. Power consumption costs about $2.50 per 60 km. Equivalent…

Nikon Coolpix L610: AA powered Point-and-Shoot

Relevance: 66%      Posted on: August 12, 2012

Since the birth of battery packs, AA-powered gadgets (especially cameras) have been a thing of a past. Although it's still debatable if it's easier to find a wall outlet to charge your gadget or to find a store to purchase a new set of fresh batteries, battery packs trumps over the AA batteries. But for those of you who still prefers AA-powered camera, then Nikon might have something to tickle your fancy. The Nikon Coolpix L610 is an entry-level Point-and-Shoot which has a pretty decent features for its price. It features 16MP BSI CMOS sensor and ISO range of 125-3200…

Heard of the first solar powered car assembled by Filipinos? Saw this one at the MOA SM Science Discovery Center. They named it Sinag (Tagalog for light). The solar-powered car is a project designed by a group of faculty and students from the Mechanical Engineering Department and the Electronic and Communications Engineering Department of De La Salle University-Manila. It was entered into the World Solar Challenge last year, the first for the Philippines. The World Solar Challenge is a solar powered car race over 3021 km through central Australia from Darwin to Adelaide. The car is now displayed at the…

Relevance: 66%      Posted on: July 7, 2014

A Nokia Lumia smartphone that runs on Android is probably what everyone is longing for. It's the perfect combination of great hardware and very flexible and powerful OS. And according to @evleaks, this could finally be happening. According to @evleaks' tweet, Nokia by Microsoft will finally bring a Lumia smartphone that is powered by Android: "Big news: Android-powered Lumia incoming, from Nokia by Microsoft." Unfortunately, @evleaks didn't provide much info on the upcoming device so we can only hope that he is spot-on as an Android-wielding Lumia is a dream phone to a lot of people especially Nokia fans. Big…

Water-Powered Cell Phones

Relevance: 65%      Posted on: October 15, 2007

Here's one indication that water will be a more expensive commodity in the future -- water-powered batteries for the mobile phones. Korea mobile manufacturer, Samsung, has recently unveiled at the 2007 Korea Electronics Show a new source of fuel-cells. The new fuel cell, powered by H2O, could power a handset for 10 hours -- almost twice as long as current rechargeable batteries. These water-powered handsets are expected to hit the market by 2010. Users will only have to change the hydrogen cartridge when the energy is depleted. Isn't that gonna be costly? However, they add that later handsets will be…

Samsung Gear VR powered by Galaxy Note 4

Relevance: 64%      Posted on: September 4, 2014

Mobile virtual reality, powered by our Galaxy Note 4. That's how Samsung is positioning this rather interesting Oculus Rift head gear. The actual name is actually the "Samsung Gear VR Innovator's Edition powered by Oculus". This rather odd model of the Oculus Rift uses the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 fitted into the posterior as the high-definition display. It has a 96-degree field of vision with a 20ms latency on image processing. The Gear VR is basically just a shell for the Note 4 so you'd have to have both in order to enjoy the benefits. Samsung has partnered with a…
