  • OPPO Quietly Launches R5s, Now With 32GB ROM & 3GB RAM

    Ronnie Bulaong
    21 Aug 2015 | 3:56 am
    Without too much fanfare, OPPO has unveiled a revamped version of the thinnest smartphone on their roster and conveniently dubbed it as the OPPO R5s. Not much has changed on the new version apart from OPPO giving a shot in the arm in the storage and RAM capacity department. The “special edition” OPPO R5s now features 32GB of internal storage and 3GB of RAM. The company has maintained the smartphone’s ultra-thin form factor which only tips the scale at 4.85mm on the sides. It’s one of the slimmest smartphones in the market right now and it once held the title as the “thinnest…

Announced alongside the Galaxy Note 5 last week, the Galaxy S6 Edge+ offers a supersized version of the unique and elegant dual-curve display that many users fell in love with. In a way, the Galaxy S6 Edge+ could be considered the phablet that replaces the Galaxy Note Edge (sans the S Pen) that arrived earlier this year.

Head past the break to see if this tablet manage to do just that and if it has the makings to justify its premium price tag. Design and Construction The design trend of the Samsung Galaxy tablets has been, for the past years at least, patterned to the current design of the South Korean company’s flagship smartphone.

  • Huawei Outs Honor 7i, Swiveling Camera In Tow

    The concept of having one rotating camera on a smartphone is nothing new in the business, but Huawei has tried a different approach on their latest mid-range smartphone – the Huawei Honor 7i. Instead of the whole top part rotating, like the one on the OPPO N1, only the actual 13-megapixel camera unit and its accompanying dual-tone LED flash swivel on the Honor 7i, allowing users to take selfies using the same rear shooter. Its rotating camera is not only thing that’s unique about the new Honor 7i, the placement of its fingerprint scanner is also quite a headscratcher. Rather than placing…

    SOME Filipinos complain that the State of the Nation Address or SONA has become too politicized, but not just in one, but in two senses has it always been political. Delivering the SONA is a duty required of the President by the Constitution, and it’s been a yearly ritual since 1935 with but a few exceptions because of war and political upheavals. What it’s basically and obviously all about is a report on how political power has been used in the years immediately preceding until the present, and that hopefully it was used for the country’s benefit. It also includes the Chief…

    Webmaster
    19 Feb 2015 | 9:11 pm
    ONLY by coincidence are reports of a brewing coup plot circulating on the eve of the 29th anniversary of the EDSA 1 People Power uprising. The usual suspects behind coup attempts may find it convenient to link their conspiracy to the overthrow of the Marcos regime in 1986, but they would be unduly stretching the meaning of their clandestine enterprise if they did so. A coup is the exact opposite of what happened in 1986. A coup d’etat (literally, a sudden move against the state) is a clandestine, elite undertaking usually instigated or supported by military adventurists acting in behalf of…

    It's an exciting and historic time to be in Manila, where the entire food, travel, and lifestyle industry is booming in the Social Media Capital of the World. While the internet penetration has reached 50% in Manila, there is still a big gap with only 10% penetration of hotels and restaurants engaging in digital marketing.

    Admin
    27 Aug 2015 | 6:58 am
    It is generally conceded that impeachment is more of a political than a legal process. However, the Integrated Bar of the Philippines (IBP), supposedly the official organization of lawyers in the Philippines, has issued a statement raising an interesting legalistic claim regarding the impeachment of Chief Justice Renato Corona. The statement argues that while the impeachment process itself against Corona is legal, some of the grounds relied on, particularly those which question the opinions of the justices applying the Constitution in actual cases, constitute an assault on the judiciary…

The obtaining facts tell us that the adjudicatory phase of the criminal cases against Arroyo including electoral sabotage, plunder and other high crimes of graft and corruptions had been well approaching when she…

    Impeachment is a political process mainly because party-mates will vote along party lines. This is the habiliment of democracy. Majority controls the business of the day, minority voice is heard for the record, but it does not carry the business for the day. We should not lose our equilibrium because some Senators have already prejudged Merci and therefore they should inhibit from sitting in the impeachment body. The process itself is political and therefore, it will be resolved in accordance with party agenda. Merci, from my recollection did not argue that politics is ruinous to public…

The Aquino administration surely knows these higher rates exact a political cost. It can, of course, be argued by P-Noy’s communications team that with 7 in 10 Filipinos support the long term goal of putting our lives in order, the adjustments simply cannot be put off. But while this point is conceded, the matter of cogently communicating the reason/s for the upticks cannot be neglected. Let’s cite another point – the…

    I recently purchased a 13 inch MacBook Air a few months ago (my first foray into OS X) and only recently did I feel the 128GB internal storage was not enough. To begin with, you get to enjoy less than that because part of it is allocated to OS X and installed apps. When the movies and pictures started piling up, I quickly realized that I need more space. Since changing the SSD is not an option, and there are a lot of times where I don’t want to bring an external drive, the next best thing is expansion through the SD card slot.

    In boxing, just as in any of the other fighting sports, it is widely believed that to be the best, you have to beat the best.

    Coffee with Baileys? YES, please!My mom and I are coffee people, and just to stir things up every now and then, we inject a little inebriant into our cup of joe. Our alcohol of choice: Baileys Irish Cream. It really goes well with coffee, and it somehow makes the usual more special. At times, when there's stock in S&R, we use the mint-flavored Baileys, but oftentimes, it's just the regular one. Either is fine.When I heard that Irene, the talent behind Indulgence by Irene and its popular Queso de Bola Cheesecake, was concocting new flavors---Earl Grey, Corn, Orange Bourbon, and Coffee with…
