It can only be the third installment of the Transformers!  And now, on 3D!  It’ll be amazing for sure.  The 3D might be overwhelming especially if seen on IMAX but will probably watch it on IMAX anyway.  McDreamy is the McBastard and there’s a new “Megan Fox”.  Nope, not a new Megan Fox.  Just a new token sexy girl!  And she’s a Victoria’s Secret Angel.  Vavavoom. Vroom, vroom!

I love the outdoors. I love going to the beach, rock and mountain climbing, snorkeling, playing tennis or badminton, surfing, dancing and going on road trips. I also love documenting all these adventures (read: I am a camera whore)! Hahaha

The first camera I owned was a casio exilim digital camera. I forget the model but it was one of the better ones then that I could afford. The next camera I bought was a waterproof camera – a pentax optio wpi with just a 6mp resolution! I think this was in 2007 or so.

Ciocoi

In 2009, I bought another camera to replace the already moody casio exilim. (more…)

OH. MY. GOD!

Is that it?  That’s the BIG news from apple?

Please tell me this is not ALL of it.  Please tell me there’s something more! Please tell me I did not just get excited over Beatles being on iTunes.

I wanna scream!  Is there no software update? No new gadget? No new technology? Great! Boo apple for making us drool so much and then leaving us drowning in it! Boo 20x! Boo!

Apple’s BIG news

There’s something BIG happening with iTunes tomorrow.  I have no idea what it is.  iTunes has just updated recently so it’s probably not that.  The iPad has an upgrade in line so it might be that. Or maybe Apple is launching some new system of buying music, movies and apps? Well, all these are guesses.  What is certain is that something BIG is happening tomorrow.  Apple fans like me are surely excited about it.

So that’ll be 11pm Philippine time?  Can’t wait!

Trying out this new thing on wordpress.. Hope this works.  I’ve actually posted a lot of tweets here before and to quote those tweets, I usually get a screenshot, edit the photo and then upload it as a picture.  With twitter blackbird pie, everything is easy breezy!  Just copy-paste the URL and voila!

Thanks wordpress team. =)

And yes! I am having a solo concert at home.  I’ve had Usher’s More on repeat for an hour now.  So far, no neighbors knocking on my door asking begging threatening me to stop. Hahaha…

Globe is now promoting the iphone 4 in their website!  I also received an advisory thru SMS.  Those who are interested to be the first to hear news about availability of the iphone 4 may register on their site.  However, they haven’t committed on when the iphone 4 will be available.  Excited as I am about owning an iphone 4, I still have a lot of apprehensions, though.

There are a lot of issues that have been identified with the first release of the iphone 4 and my obsessive-compulsive self might not be able to handle them.  The most controversial issue is probably about the iphone’s antenna.  They said that holding it in a certain way results in signal loss.  Apple has taken every means to counter this by citing various statistics, which somehow, I think, only prolonged the issue.   Apple has even published in their website an explanation of how signal strength is calculated and how they have painstakingly tested each and every one of their products and ensured that they are fully functional.  Here’s a part of their explanation: (more…)

Twitter has scheduled maintenance for today at 2pm which will last for approximately five hours.  Whatever will I do for 5 hours?  Addict much? Hahaha..

Read twitter’s official statement here.

——

330pm:  It’s been an hour. Twitter is still down. I wanna tweet, tweet, tweet!

430pm: twitter is back….more than 2 hours downtime.. hope they fixed everything.. no more stupid white whales and such..

440pm: well, it seems I spoke too soon…  they probably still have some issues to resolve.  i still saw the caterpillar (?).  Well, they said 5 hours in their advisory, so I have no right to complain yet.  Besides, I have been asking them to do this – close down twitter for a few hours and resolve all the issues and upgrade their system.  Hope they are doing just that.  And I am crossing my fingers that they will unveil something new to twitter.
