Why the Need for a “Fair Use Policy?”

I don’t understand the need for a “Fair Use Policy” (FUP). No, I’m not even referring to Smart and Globe’s “unlimited” internet misrepresentation.

According to Globe’s website:

This policy allows us to maintain the quality of our mobile internet service and give all Globe customers a fair opportunity to enjoy our network.

Mobile surfing offers from Globe are generally meant for emailing, browsing and search activities. Customers who frequently use file-sharing software or download large files are usually the ones affected by our policy. Media streaming and downloading of torrents also contribute to the excessive use of bandwidth capacity.

If that truly is their intention, why not make users pay for what they actually use, instead of offering “unlimited” and capping them just the same.

Here’s Hoping for an iPod Touch 128GB

Apple quietly drops iPod Classic from its online store.

iPod Classic

I do have an iPod Classic I bought in mid-2007. It was my first Apple product purchase. I don’t recall what Gen it was, but it was the 80GB version. Although software and hardware indicate it needs to retire, I can’t let go of it just yet because my Music Library in my iTunes alone is worth around 50GB, which can’t fit the 64GB iPod Touches and iPhones especially when scores of apps are already installed.

Turning Idle Times into Productive Times

What do you do to turn idle times into productive times? Say you’re waiting in line to see the dentist or doctor, or for whatever reason.

At this day and age, good thing we have our smartphones and tablets with us. Of course, you can’t do office works on their meager screens, but at least it is an opportunity to catch up on some readings.


Aside from the Kindle app, I also have the Pocket app where long articles have been saved for offline reading, especially if I’m waiting at a place without a decent internet connection. Otherwise, I’ll browse my Feedly feeds and Facebook and Twitter to catch some mainstream news, or play some top notch online poker.

What about you? What do you do to turn idle into productive times?
