The Samsonite Laptop Backpack

Relevance: 100%      Posted on: November 28, 2006

I mentioned about this new find I have last week while traveling to Pakistan. My usual problem when on a trip is that I have a lot of bags in tow -- one bag for the camera, another for the laptop and of course a big one for the clothes. Well, that's what I had when I first went to Taiwan a few months back. So, my quest for an almost all-in-one backpack was answered last week when I found this really nice Samsonite laptop bag. Pictures below: It's a layered backpack with the outer layer for the laptop and…

Google Data Center in Malaysia; why not the Philippines?

Relevance: 71%      Posted on: February 3, 2008

Drew points us to a brewing discussion at Slashdot over a possible new Asian Data Center being planned by Google. Rumor is that it's going to be Malaysia though reports indicate Japan, Taiwan, South Korea, India and Vietnam to be ideal candidates as well. Wait, why isn't the Philippines even in the picture? That's where the discussions over at Slashdot was leaning forward to. And any Asian country that can grab Google's attention and business will surely get a huge boost in their IT reputation (bragging rights if you will). Google is pitting foreign governments against one another in a…

Facebook rolls out App Center

Relevance: 68%      Posted on: August 2, 2012

You might have noticed that nagging notification on Facebook all day yesterday. Well, it seems like Facebook has just rolled out the App Center. Both desktop and mobile apps are now available in the App Center. This new feature used to be available in the US (and a few more countries) since June but is now rolled out to other countries (internationally) such as the Philippines. The App Center is probably Facebook's way to get more people to use and stay on Facebook, both on their PC as well as their mobile phones. Remember that in the early days of…

Obama and the Call Center Industry

Relevance: 67%      Posted on: November 17, 2008

Since the election of Barack Obama as the next President of the United States, much talk has been going around about his policies and stand on outsourcing among call center employees. My discussions with several people working in the BPO and contact center companies have been mixed. I think he might have been misunderstood in his statements where he said he's going to take some of the outsource jobs back to America. What Obama might do is give some tax breaks or tax incentives for companies if they retain employees in the US. That way, US companies might be persuaded…

Only 3 of every 100 graduates pass Call Center jobs

Relevance: 65%      Posted on: May 14, 2006

Someone sent me a link to this old article from Manila Standard Today about me recent article on call center jobs in the Philippines. The article mentioned that only around 3 out of 100 fresh graduates in the country are hired by call centers. The survey must have been done in 2005, where only 11,526 applicants or 2.89 percent of the total 400,000 new graduates are accepted in BPO companies and call centers. However, the 3% mentioned here seemed misleading since there's no way all those 400,000 college graduates applied in a call center. That means the passing rate is…

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)…
