TRAIN and Pick-up Trucks

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 Osmo Mobile 2

The Verge:

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.
