Whatever happened to the quick post buttons and windows for Twitter and Facebook, just like what you see in the screenshots above?
Obviously, they were removed from the notification center when iOS 7 came. I missed it because right now in order to do a quick status update to Facebook, I need to open the SLOW Facebook app, which takes forever to load before I can proceed any further. And I don’t have Siri to do it for me. Keep Reading »
I’m looking for a sleek, minimalist timer app for iPhone that keeps the display from dimming or turning off completely while in use. Of course, I need to check how much time I have left when answering test questions.

Often you hear or read comments from bashers and non-bashers alike about how expensive Apple products are especially when there are new products released, just like the recent iPhone 5s. So the question is, does Apple really employ premium materials to their products that they’re worth that much?
I have a 3-year old, network-locked, 32GB (base model) iPhone 4 and a 2-year old unlocked Samsung Galaxy S II (SGS2). Both were selling at the same price level when they came out (~PHP32K). If you look closely at the spec sheets of both, SGS2 is the clear winner being a more recent smartphone and with a dual-core processor (see the comparison at the GSMArena). But today I can easily sell the iPhone 4 for PHP10,000 (~US$240) while the SGS2 for only PHP5,000 (~US$120). There goes your premium, ladies and gentlemen!
Everytime there’s a new Apple product announcement, I can’t wait to read all the Apple-bashing comments by haters and trolls alike. It’s becoming a habit of mine. After all, you can’t read them at other new product announcements, right?
