Relevance: 94%      Posted on: August 9, 2011

In my recent review of the 2011 Macbook Air, I noticed that Apple no longer included a recovery disk (no CD or USB drive) in the box, since it's already built into the Mac OS X Lion. Still, it would have been nice to have the same feature found on an external drive. Some folks were actually making hacks to do this since last week. Yesterday, Apple finally released the official tool. You can download the Lion Recovery Disk Assistant here (1.07MB). The Lion Recovery Disk Assistant lets you create Lion Recovery on an external drive that has all of…

Smart 3G to Baguio

Relevance: 65%      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.

So, they came up with Smart Bro (is that a shortcut for broadband?) They did some clean-up and even remove pages from their official site which mentioned Smart Wifi. Too bad that page is already #1 on Google, Yahoo and MSN for the term "smart wifi". (I suppose my blog will take over that spot, eh?) Migs pointed out that that Smart Bro is also a browser and a few days after…
