A Call to Boycott Products on Youtube Ads

This is already getting out of hands. Every minute or so in the middle of playing Youtube videos on mobile, tablet, or through Chromecast, ads keep ruining my Youtube experience. How can one enjoy their favorite Youtube videos if a lot of ads keep popping up at irritating rate? I know, Youtube is free, but data isn’t. Imagine paying for data every time you watch advertisements.

I don’t actually mind seeing ads in-between every other video. But mid-video ads are really getting into my nerves. Make it appear as often rare as every 20 minutes. But not every minute or two!

Otherwise, what we do is either boycott Youtube altogether or boycott the products you’re trying to sell.

So, this goes to the likes of Nestogrow. Stop being too aggressive on Youtube ads. The more often your ads ruin our Youtube experience, the louder our call and hope that your products won’t sell!

Gimbal Revolution

I bought a Zhiyun Smooth Q last year, and it now happily occupies a space in my bag. And it stayed there for quite some time now.

It was a great gimbal, don’t get me wrong, especially for its price. But I just don’t enjoy the trouble setting it up with my bulky Samsung Galaxy Note 8 everytime I use it. I’m sure it’s not too bulky a device to use for a planned event or travel, but not for everyday snap here and there.

And just recently, DJI released a new product — the DJI Osmo Pocket, and in time for the Christmas season at that.

And just like that, now I’m hooked.

BPI in a hurry to switch its clients to the new online and/or mobile platforms

I received an email from BPI today detailing how their old platforms, for mobile and online. will stop working by the following timelines:

Current (old) Platforms Current (old) platforms no longer accessible by
BPI Mobile app December 1, 2018
BPI Online Banking January 11, 2019

The new platforms may have some more security features, that’s why? But why rush your clients when STILL, you can’t do investing transactions in the new platforms? Are they even aware of that? That there’s no way you can add to your Mutual Fund or UITF accounts using the new platforms? At least that’s STILL my observation when using the new BPI online platform.
