Thank you Blaupunkt and Gen Tiu for the awesome “Sport 111″ headphones given to me and delivered to my home just recently.
It performs perfectly. Amazing sound! The Sport 111 is specifically made for prolonged use and is designed to prevent fatigue. Something I’ll definitely be bringing quite often – during cardio and weight training days! *Happy-Happy-Joy-Joy!*
Check out the various models of Blaupunkt headphones – available at all “Astroplus” outlets.
I wanna thank Smart and the entire Smart Digital Team for the awesome mosh pit tickets they gave me and my wife for Lady Gaga’s Concert entitled the “Born This Way Ball”, which was held last week at the Mall Of Asia Arena.
It was one spectacular event…! I took quite a number of pics of Lady Gaga in action during the concert. For more pics, click here.
A few days ago, the sleek lookin’ Nokia Lumia 800 arrived at my doorstep courtesy of Globe Telecom (Thank you very much, Globe!).
I can finally review this much talked about device that most critics call “the first REAL Windows Phone”.
Keep in mind that I will NOT delve into the technical details too much but will concentrate on user experience and performance instead since this aspect is what truly matters for most common consumers.
Giddy and excited, I opened the box, unwrapped the Lumia 800′s protective packaging, switched it on and started dabbling with its UI (user interface).
Given that I am an iPhone 4S user, I’ve had reservations… I didn’t want to raise my expectations and eventually be let down in case the device didn’t live up to its hype.
Wanna know how incompetent most entrance security guards are at the mall? I say most because there are a rare few that actually still do their job… but “few” just won’t cut it, especially when people’s safety and lives are at stake.
Note that I shot the (very short) video below on my wife’s re-entry at one of the entrances of Greenbelt 4. During the first entry seconds earlier, my wife actually took longer in front of the guard prodding and gesturing for him to check her bag. That’s when I noticed that this damn guard wasn’t just lax. He actually wasn’t doing his effin job!
So after our first pass-thru, I told my wife to turn around, exit the establishment and re-enter… but this time, with me behind her – documenting the entire thing on video. Watch.
As you can see, the guard glanced but wasn’t even bothered that the pass-thru detector alarmed when my wife walked through it.
Are these guards even trained properly? Or are they just whiling the hours on the job doing nothing, waiting for their next paycheck? Though they may be polite to customers and smile every now and then when talking to passersby, none of that feels comforting at all when you know that possible terrorists and robbers can walk freely in and out of these highly congested malls carrying explosives and firearms.
Keep in mind that this kind of thing happens not just at Greenbelt. It happens practically in every mall all around Metro Manila (and most likely across the Philippines as well).
