Whatever happened to Aiwa?

Relevance: 100%      Posted on: January 16, 2011

Was driving in SSH this afternoon to go to church when I saw a billboard ad with the logo of Aowa. I've had bad experiences with their sales people years back but the name already reminded me of the electronics brand, Aiwa. Many years back, they were a growing and popular brand of cassette players/recorders as well as home stereo system (boasting power outputs as high as 16,000 watts PMPO). They're supposed to be cheaper too compared to the bigger brand names. I've never heard of them for a long time now nor have seen any of their products in…

My “What happened to?” Series

Relevance: 48%      Posted on: October 10, 2005

In the following weeks, I will be posting a series of "What happened to?" on several of the old internet businesses that went kaput (local ones only). I'd like to dissect each of them and see why they went down the drain and how they could have survived the tech crunch of the early 2000. I was once a part of the so-called booming internet industry in those years and I bared witness to how (and how much) idea incubators burn money to the ground without earning a single centavo. I believe that most of them had a really good…

Visiting LG Electronics in South Korea

Relevance: 38%      Posted on: February 17, 2010

About a dozen and half media people were invited here in South Korea today to visit several offices and plants by LG Electronics. We'll be here for the rest of the week so expect a number of posts about our trip. We'll be touring and going around a lot so maybe I can squeeze in a few more posts than normal. I'm just checking my options if I can connect to their 3G networks here on top of the hotel WiFi. Will also be sharing photos and HD videos of our trip and some inside look at LG's factory and…

What happened to Rebelde.com?

Relevance: 35%      Posted on: December 1, 2005

I almost totally forgot about my "What happened to" series. I only remebered it after seeing some search keywords that ended up in my blog. See, there are still people who are wondering what happened to these sites/projects. Anyway, I'm not sure if some of you remembered or knew about Rebelde.com but it was one of the "most controversial" sites during the forums era in the Philippines (circa 2000). Rebelde.com is a new forum and free email service launched in 2000 and owned by some Fil-Am family based in Las Vegas. They literally had hundreds and hundreds of Tagalog domain…

LG Electronics will no longer make plasma TV

Relevance: 33%      Posted on: October 30, 2014

Plasma TV will become a rarer sight in stores as South Korean company, LG Electronics Inc., will end its own production of the said TV technology by November. The reason behind the demise of plasma TV production of LG is the decline in demand. Plasma TV hasn't been really a popular product in the past years due to the rapid growth of LCD technology. LG labelled plasma TV as "not a business anymore". They will focus on LCD and OLED TVs instead. LG is not the only major player to halt their plasma TV production. Panasonic and Samsung already ended…

What happened to Edsa.com.ph?

Relevance: 32%      Posted on: October 27, 2005

Continuing with my "What happened to?" series, I don't know if anybody here still remembers Edsa.com.ph. It was one of the leading web portal/search engines back in the late 90s, going against start-up portal Yehey.com. Edsa.com.ph (formally launched during the anniversary of EDSA Revolution in February 25, 1997.) was dubbed as the First Search-Enabled Web Directory by Janet Torral's Philippine Internet Review. It was developed and maintained by Evoserve, a local ISP company who also happens to own EdsaMail. Jason Banico, former CTO of Yehey was one of those who developed/upgraded the search engine EDSA.com.ph into the horizontal content portal,…

Apple might acquire Beats Electronics for $3.2 billion

Relevance: 31%      Posted on: May 9, 2014

Beats Audio, makers of premium headphones (premium prices too), might soon be a part of your iPhone, iPod, and iPad. Rumor has it that Apple is considering to buy Beats Electronics, makers of the popular Beats Audio products, for $3.2 billion. Beats was recently valued at more than $1 billion, and even with Apple's large cash pile of around $159 billion, this will pose as the company's biggest acquisition yet if it pushes through. This is not the first time that Beats Audio was incorporated with mobile devices. HTC owns 50.1% majority share of Beats and had their previous flagship…
