vBulletin vs. InvisionBoard

Relevance: 100%      Posted on: May 4, 2005

I have had several discussions with people wanting to choose the better of two forum software -- InvisionBoard (IPB) or vBulletin (vB). First off, both forum apps requires a paid license. IPB has a one-year license of $70 (you only get upgardes for 1 year) or a perpetual license of $185 (you get all future upgrades) while vB requires an owned license for $160 but you need to pay $30 annually to get continued upgrades. Do the math and it's clear that IPB is the much cheaper alternative. But why do we need licensed forums when there are tons of…

Will the real People’s PC, please stand up!

Relevance: 64%      Posted on: June 10, 2005

A year ago, Intel was promoting it's low-cost People's PC which costs about Php16,000 (plus VAT so that's Php17,600 already). The system includes a Celeron 2.2Ghz, 128MB SDRAM, 40GB HDD, 52x CDROM, 15" monitor and an internal modem. I believe we can still lower this sucker to something more affordable and can be aptly called the real People's PC. So the hunt is on and I will need everyone's help here --- let's get into it and create our cheapest People's PC. The rig should be at least equivalent and preferably better in specs than the one above but our…

Web 2.0 is 80% community, 20% technology

Relevance: 63%      Posted on: April 4, 2006

I'd like to revisit my previous entry about Pinoys being ready for Web 2.0. A great technology that empowers and enables people is not worth much if the people that comprises the community does not add value to it. Take for example iBegin which is a local search. Great idea but in order for that great idea to be usable, people must add good/reliable content to it. And I would love to have something like that for Metro Manila! When Luis launched Oks.ph a few months back, I thought it was just another one of the dozen of Digg clones…

Which One Are You: 8 Types of People That Request to Become Friends on Facebook

Relevance: 62%      Posted on: January 16, 2015

It's okay for me to get Facebook notifications and messages - I check them most of the time. But if we're going to talk about Facebook Friend Requests, it's the one I usually ignore because it's full of people we don't even know. So, who are these people? 1. Your actual friends and relatives I don't think this one needs any further explanation. This is the main idea behind Facebook friends: people you actually know! 2. Friends of your friends / relatives that don't know you personally They have faces that might seem familiar, pictures with your family and friends,…

Is 5G technology really here?

Relevance: 60%      Posted on: August 22, 2014

Smart Communications recently announced its new LTE-A ‘5G’ service which got a lot of people talking. Instead of it being good news, many took it in a negative way saying that it’s all just a marketing hype. But what exactly is 5G? Is it really here? 5G describes the upcoming generation of wireless networking. It is not a set of standard specifications that determine if the technology qualifies to be called 5G or not. As of now it is just used to describe the next-gen connectivity since there’s still no solid definition or formal agreement between companies of what it…

Conspiracy Theory: Technology’s Dark Role in the Future

Relevance: 60%      Posted on: December 5, 2013

Technology is a way of doing things, and doing things are either good, evil or indifferent. It isn't always about getting faster computers, more powerful gaming hardware or more efficient car engines - it's about what you do with them. Guns don't kill people, people kill people. Our ways of doing things have totally changed through time. Now, we get news fast, instant messaging & powerful mobile gadgets from cameras to laptop computers. Most of us even have probably experienced the rise and fall of compact disks. It's all moving so fast that I think even parents have a hard…

Relevance: 58%      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…

Redfox Technology Innovation Center

Relevance: 57%      Posted on: December 15, 2010

I got private tour of Redfox's new headquarters the other day. They called it the Redfox Technology Innovation Center since the whole building showcases everything the Filipino tech company has developed and brought into the Philippines thru the years. I am told that Redfox has been completely spun out of AsianTech (the local distributor) only recently and the separation allows Redfox to focus on their line of consumer products. The Technology Innovation Center is now the Redfox HQ which has been opened only last December 4. They've got the first release of a local 5-inch eBook Reader (see: Redfox WizLib)…

Relevance: 57%      Posted on: October 29, 2012

Sharp says goodbye to TV glare and unwanted reflections with the introduction of its first lineup of LCD TVs with Moth-Eye technology - the AQUOS Quattron 3D XL series. Remember the Moth-Eye technology we previously reported? To speed you up on things, this tech is a special film or panel that Sharp uses on its large TV displays to eliminate, or at least, greatly reduce glare and reflections. The AQUOS Quattron 3D XL TV line uses the same technology backed up by a 1920 x 1080 resolution , 10 million to 1 contrast ratio and Sharp's four primary color technology
