ASUS Zenfone 2 Deluxe ZE551ML: A closer look

When ASUS Philippines released their Zenfone 2 last year, I knew that it will be my next phone once I decided to upgrade my Samsung Galaxy Note 2 (yes, it really needs to retire :p). But I just love my gadgets that it’s hard to replace them until they’re dead. Last month, news broke out about the new models of ASUS Zenfone: Zenfone Selfie, Zenfone Go, Zenfone Laser, and Zenfone 2 Deluxe. The two models that caught my fancy were the Selfie and Deluxe. Zenfone Selfie because of the 13 MP front camera and Zenfone 2 Deluxe because of its large storage capacity.

Before my trip to Hong Kong, I finally decided to buy the Zenfone 2 Deluxe but when I asked someone from ASUS, it’s still not out in the market, even the Zenfone Selfie. I wanted to buy one prior my trip so that I can use it when I’m there.

I’m willing to wait it out till I come back but when I saw the Zenfone 2 Deluxe at the ASUS store in Mongkok Computer Center, its hard to walk away from this beauty.

Android App: Fruit Ninja

I’m a kid at heart, I get easily addicted to computer games like The Sims. I’m so hooked I don’t want to stand in front of my PC to eat or do chores. When Facebook came, there’s Restaurant City and Farmville. After that, I veered away from all those requests from FB for me to be productive at work.

Until I got myself a Samsung Galaxy Ace last year, there came a point that my phone is no longer used as a phone but for gaming purposes, lol! My first game installed was Angry Birds. After that, I tried other games like puzzles, arcades, war games like Gears of War 3 in Xbox, etc…

TV5, MMDA launches Metro Manila Traffic Navigator

Few weeks ago, I was invited to the launch of Metro Manila Traffic Navigator. A joint project of TV5 and MMDA to provide public service to the people. TV5 hooked up with MMDA to tap to the MMDA Metrobase to come up with a traffic monitoring system. The Metro Manila Traffic Navigator is the first ever digitized traffic information system that helps inform motorists and commuters of the traffic situation along major roads in Metro Manila. And unlike other government agencies with un-updated websites, the Metro Manila Traffic Navigator gets updated every 5 to 15 minutes.

I won an Ipod Nano

Last Monday seems to be a lucky day for me. You see, I often join online contests, any contests with easy mechanics like retweeting, posting on FB, commenting and anything that only requires a minute or two. But with dozens of contests I joined, I seldom win. One contest I joined was Technoodling.net and Beyond the Box Ipod Nano giveaway, and I’m one of the three winners!

Convert iPod Touch to iPhone using the Peel 520

Ipods have come a long way since the release of iPod shuffle. I still remember saving up for my first iPod Shuffle and then my iPod Video. I stopped looking for higher models because Apple is releasing newer ones almost every month. The only Apple gadget I’m lusting for right now is the iPhone 4. But the hefty price tells me to wait until it goes down to 30-thousand-ish price, and then maybe I’ll consider buying it.

But I discovered something that can turn the iPod Touch into an iPhone, it’s the Peel 520.

Level up my business

Online shopping in the Philippines has come a long way, from Multiply, online shops have conquered Facebook. But as I’ve said before, I don’t want to make my personal account in Facebook an online circus of some sort. But what I’ve been considering for months now is to buy a domain name for my site and set it up as a stand-alone e-commerce/shop site complete with shopping cart features. I think Philippine market is mature enough for this kind of shopping experience and I know a lot of Philippine-based online sites that are already successful with this kind of set-up.

I already have an existing web hosting for my blogs but I’m afraid that the space/bandwidth won’t be enough to accommodate the existing traffic my Multiply store has. One suggestion is for me to have my own server, but I’m too novice for those technical stuff. Having my own dedicated server might be an advantage for me in the future should I acquire more blogs and online shops but I’m lost with all technical jargons. But I found a great deal in Superb.net with their managed hosting, aside from their managed dedicated servers that I can acquire, it also comes with a 5-in-1 deal which includes managed backup, managed firewalls, OS hardening, patches and updates and proactive monitoring. Looks like a promising plan, right? And if all things became successful, I can even avail of their colocation plans to take care of my server.

Just sharing you some of my hopes on becoming a successful entrepreneur, but in the meantime, do check out the latest collection from Pink Fortune, multi-way bags that are definitely bang for the buck!
