Top Gear Philippines posted the new 2018 price list of the Toyota cars line-up, after the effectivity of the TRAIN (Tax Reform for Acceleration and Inclusion) law. Yes, as expected, expensive and/or luxury cars either retained or even decreased their selling prices. But the more interesting observation is how pick-up trucks, i.e., the Hilux lineup, saw decreased prices as well, regardless of the original price.
I still can’t surmise why pick-ups have to benefit from this law? Please, someone, explain it to me.
DJI is introducing a new version of its smartphone stabilizer, the Osmo Mobile, that makes a handful of small changes to the original as well as one big one: its price. The Osmo Mobile 2 will start at $129, making it much more affordable than the original model (which started at $299, though you can find it now for closer to $200) as a way to keep your phone shake-free while shooting video.
Sounds like they’re very much challenged by the competition, particularly the Zhiyun Smooth Q. The price range and the built-in long battery are the Smooth Q’s thing.
In an effort to stay organized and productive, you whip out a pen and a piece of paper and jot down the list of your impending todos. As you move along your day, you tick off those tasks that you have completed, leaving the unmarked ones for tomorrow, hopefully.
A couple of days later, that piece of paper is now buried in various pages of office printouts and drafts, leaving the rest of your todos ignored, and thus, undone.
Therefrom, you installed a todo app on your smartphone. That way, you can schedule important tasks that need to be done on a particular time. Your phone will remind you when that task is due. Efficient and effective, you thought. Until the day you were in a meeting for a while and left your phone on your desk gathering notifications after notifications.
Overwhelmed by these notifications, you decided to clear them all. And thus, you missed your tasks again– ignored, undone! Continue reading
Part of the reason why I chose Globe’s postpaid internet called Globe at Home was because of the freebies they came waiving at my face when I first approached their booth at the mall.
I opted for the Plan 1599, and here are the plan inclusions as described in their website: Continue reading
When you own a smartphone, are you expected to be subscribed to a data plan with it?
Apparently, the answer is yes if you own an Android device.
Turning off Mobile/Cellular Data in the Settings
In iPhones, if you turn cellular data off, it means no cellular data — completely. As long as it stays off, you will not be charged for any unintentional background data use.
That is not the case for Android. Apparently, even if you turn off mobile data in your Android device and solely use wifi for internet connection, the system still uses mobile data and connects to the internet from time to time.
So now you can’t fault me when my money mostly goes to my ever reliable iPhone in the battle between the two systems. Continue reading
Dear Business Insider,
You’re not the only website dealing with topics I’m interested in. Thanks to your animosity against ad-blockers, I never have to visit your website again.
Hey, it’s fine to have me click one more time to get rid of those pesky notifications that I’m using ad-blocker plugins, but not to the extent of totally stopping me from accessing/reading your content.
Now, is there a way to tell Google Search to not show results from these kind of websites?
In anticipation of the upcoming Season 7 of the biggest television series, The Game of Thrones, do let the IGN people retell for you the major things that happened in 6 seasons past – – in just 5 minutes.
When group conversations have become too busy you can’t keep up with them any longer, or maybe you just want to totally ignore them — at least for the time being, you actually have the option to mute them by going to the group’s Chat Info & Settings, and there’s a toggle to Mute Group.
However, what does this really do totally defeats its purpose. Yes, it stops the notification sounds from going off, and new messages don’t appear in the notification center, but the app badge still shows how many messages you’ve missed from these muted group conversations. Also, when you open the app, the Chats tab still shows the number of unread messages even when they’re from the “muted” ones, which clearly gets in the way when your intention was to totally ignore them.
So, unless and until Viber corrects this issue, I’m turning off notifications for this app altogether. Or, perhaps, uninstall Viber completely.
