What are the freebies that come with your new Globe at Home subscription?
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.

How to completely turn off mobile data in Android?
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.

NBA League Pass in the Philippines
With the timezone difference, Filipinos in the Philippines can’t catch each and every game of the NBA. Normally, the games happen while we’re at work. Thus, we can only enjoy the games usually every weekend, and not all weekends are free day for everyone.
And thus, it’s not practical to fork out Php4,999 per year, Php650 per month, or Php99 per day to avail of the NBA League Pass.
If I were to suggest a reasonable price for NBA League Pass, it would be Php999 (~US$20) for a year, Php199 (~US$4) for a month, and Php49 (~$1) for a weekend (Saturday and Sunday, Philippine time). That is how Filipinos will find it reasonable, considering the standard of living and the volume of games they can freely watch anyway. And this is how NBA can sell the NBA League Pass in the Philippines.
Business Insider vs. Ad-Blocker
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?
