05 30 2012 ... It may have run into a short delay, but the New iPad (3rd Generation for those keeping count) has been green-lit for a May 31 Philippine release! While we’re excited and stoked about this, we were also pleasantly surprised to find out that the New iPad with cellular versions are a thousand bucks cheaper than the price of iPad 2 with 3G variant at launch. This bodes well for those who were planning to get the Ce...

05 24 2012 ...

01 29 2012 ... WOOHOO! Tomorrow’s gonna be a brighter day!!! “Whaddaya mean?,” you might be asking while scratching your head in puzzlement. Is it an effect of the unusually potent solar flares that we’ve been having lately? Is it the early onset of the scorching summer season? Is it the arrival of far better high-tech LED lighting? Nah. We’re talking closer to home (and not home LED lighting). And we ...
01 24 2012 ... Your old tape measure only goes to 16 feet, but you’re staring at a distant wall that must be at least three times that distance. What to do? Answer: get digital assistance. And one of the cheapest ways would be via the CD-R King Ultrasonic Tape Measure. The name is a bit of a throwback: the actual name of the instrument should be a “distance measurer,” but the marketing whizzes at CD-R King know th...
01 23 2012 ... By Adel Gabot I admire Apple‘s efforts at improving education. God knows its about time to dispense with the old textbook paradigm and lugging the heavy, increasingly obsolete books around in a backpack from class to class. Apple’s recent launch of iBooks 2 and iBooks Author is a great step towards this, but despite the drive to bring down costs, there is a small, but significant hidden penalty to all ...
01 19 2012 ... If  you tried to do some research yesterday via Wikipedia, you would have been met by a blurry black screen like the following: So what’s going on? Sites like Wikipedia, Mozilla and Google made yesterday, January 18, a day of online protest. And the protests are about a couple of pending bills in the US Congress called SOPA and PIPA. Wikipedia was by far the most “outspoken” (for lack of a better ...
01 17 2012 ... Dear Groupon Philippines (a.k.a. Groupon Beeconomic), We know you need to make money, and lots of it. But this is ridiculous. On several fronts. We’re talking about the Celluon Magic Cube, a portable powered cube that shoots out a keyboard pattern via a laser beam, so that you can type anywhere. Connect it to an iPad via Bluetooth, for instance, and you get to project a virtual keyboard onto any flat surface fo...
01 12 2012 ... Image from BusinessInsider.com First of all, let’s get that huge elephant in the room out of the way: Android may be killing it in the phone market, but it’s really not progressing at all in the tablet arena. Sure there are a few stars, such as the Samsung Galaxy Tab series or the Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime (whose name is about to transform). But even these have not taken up any much market share. Whe...
01 10 2012 ... I haven’t been to a CD-R King outlet in a while, but just the other day, I found myself in Greenhills with some spare time in my hands and I immediately made a beeline to CD-R King to check out the latest stuff they have to offer. I’m not sure if it’s available in other CD-R King branches, but the one in VMall had a huge basket of USB cables that’s being sold rather cheaply. The prices ranged ...
