    if you know someone who works or are currently in Hong Kong then you can ask them to shell out HK$3,888 or Php23,250 and buy you an iPad, if you change your mind, then they can have the iPad. hehehe

    i bought an ipad here in singapore where i work and live. it sold out pretty fast; i had to line up with other customers and had to call a number of stores before i found one selling the cheapest model at 728 sgd.

    but it’s all worth it! i especially like the aquarium as well as the ny times and stanza apps for ipad. i like reading books, so the ipad is perfect for it. :)

    i bought the wi-fi only model coz the one with additional 3g cannot be used unless u have a data subscription with a phone company here, which costs 30sgd upwards a month. with wi-fi at home, where i keep the ipad, no need to pay extra.

    i hope the ipad comes to the philippines soon!

    here in Canada, the ipad is CAD 549 for the 16gig plus tax of course. so that would be almost $600. iphone 4 is set to be available here july 30 i think. i saw the poster yesterday at Apple store.

  19. after study a few of the blog post on your website now, and I trully like your way of blogging. I bookmarked it to my bookmark sites and will checking back it soon. please check out my web as well and lem me know what do you think.

  20. In this awesome design of things you receive an A just for effort. Where you confused me personally was in your details. As they say, the devil is in the details… And that could not be more correct here. Having said that, permit me tell you just what exactly did give good results. Your article (parts of it) is actually pretty persuasive which is probably why I am making an effort to opine. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. 2nd, while I can easily see the leaps in reason you come up with, I am definitely not convinced of how you seem to connect the ideas which inturn make your final result. For now I will yield to your point but hope in the future you connect your facts better.

  21. Good day! Do you know if they make any plugins to protect against hackers?
    I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard
