Symphony of Parols at the Ayala Triangle

For some strange reasons, I was dragged by my feet to this area in Makati. Noticing the crowd from across Ayala Avenue, I decided to join them. Since then, I bore witness to this one unique presentation by the Ayala development company called “The Symphony of Parols”.

I guess the lights could have been more dramatic if it was pitch black darkness around. The lighted building from across the Paseo de Roxas somehow spoiled the background in this video.

The Symphony of Parols is happening every evening from 6pm to 8pm throughout the Holiday Season at the Ayala Triangle.

Android, iPhone4, and Windows Phone 7, Which Grills Fast?

Warning: the video below contains scenes that may not be so totally acceptable to the faint of heart geeks.

This video is a marketing campaign for the EZGrill disposable grill. I know the idea is not original, as we’ve seen videos like “Will it Blend?” before. Yet, they got our attention just the same.

Who wouldn’t when these people are burning some iPhone4, Android G2, and a Windows Phone 7 HTC Surround:

The Android G2 went out first, followed by the iPhone4, and the HTC Surround lasted the longest.

We could only wish they gave any one of them to us instead.

Toodledo for Windows Desktop

I’m thinking about shifting from RememberTheMilk (RTM) to Toodledo. That’s because I’m trying to lean towards using a GTD solution to my everyday tasks, may they be personal or business.

I find Toodledo to be close to perfect, if not perfect, for GTD. If RTM only has tags to categorize your tasks, Toodledo has tags, context and projects/folders. Of course both have priorities.

But I’m starting to like Toodledo more because of its great iPad app and its integration with Nuevasync (to synchronize my tasks with my Windows Mobile phone).

Unfortunately, Toodledo has no native Desktop PC application. I’m not a programmer, much less a software developer, but now I’m wondering, if the developers could afford a great iPad app, why not develop one for Windows PC? If it’s Flash-based or will be running on Adobe Air, I wouldn’t mind. The most important thing here is it can be accessed offline and seamless synchronization with the web service once you get online.

I know there’s Task Angel, but that you have to pay quite a hefty amount in order to use it. And it’s not native. It was not built to integrate with Toodledo alone. And it lacks Notebook support too. I’m really talking about an iPad-like application.

Hope the developers consider my request in the future.
