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.

The 45th UP Hamili Brotherhood Anniversary Celebration

After 45 years, some founding members joined the younger ones (and the young at heart) to grace the celebration of the Manila-based Su-ons of the 45th year anniversary of the UP Hamili Brotherhood at the Mutinational Village in Parañaque City.

To further grace the occasion, of course, are the foods, drinks, music and the fun:

The ‘Hangtime’ Move by Deuts Ambuscade

Deuts Ambuscade is Brewing Coffee in the Air.

Wearing jersey no. 8, Deuts Ambuscade of the San Antonio Spurs gets past three defenders in this impressive move to the basket.

Okay, not to confuse with the real life NBA, this was just a clip from my favorite Playstation 3 game, the NBA 2k9. Deuts Ambuscade was a created player of mine and a superstar playing for the San Antonio Spurs.

Sungha Jung: The Next Youtube Sensation?

As is usually the case, what determines the success of a great musician is how great he/she is at his favorite musical instrument as well as at singing. They usually go together. The chances of success when you’re only playing an instrument is lower than when you can do both well at your instrument and singing.

Oftentimes, in a rock band or any musical band for that matter, the vocalist becomes more popular than everyone else. Continue reading

The Shallow Story Behind Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen

Transformers: Revenge of the FallenI watched the Transformers 2 the other weekend, and my impression about it, it got a very shallow storyline. It got one straightforward story, added with action-packed scenes and some drama.

This was supported by the review over at Yahoo!:

“Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” made over $200 million last week. What it didn’t make, however, was one lick of sense.

The review, entitled: “Burning Questions: The 10 Most Confusing Things in ‘Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen’“, my favorite was no. 9: Continue reading

Sherlock Holmes Turned into an Action Star

I used to love reading Sherlock Holmes stories. He was witty, smart, he introduced the science of deduction. But I never imagined him to be an action star.

Some of the comments found in the youtube page criticizing the trailer (thus, the movie), which I agree as well:

Why is Sherlock Holmes bare-knuckle boxing? This looks like a ludicrous, horrific murder of an english literary great.

I agree. They ruined a master-piece and turned it into a farce. They turned aristocratic, intelligent, and modest Holmes, into some Bourne, or James Bond figure. Can’t watch this.

The Most Celebrated Video Scandal of 2009

Perhaps you reached this page hoping to get maybe even a glimpse of the video I’m talking about. Well I’m sorry to disappoint you but you won’t get to watch any video here nor get any link to the videos.

Anyway, in the recent developments, Dr. Hayden Kho expressed his apology and regret over the whole scandal in an interview by GMA Network. I wonder though, did he regret for recording the video beyond the awareness of his partner or for failure to have discovered beforehand about truecrypt?

TrueCrypt is a software application used for real-time on-the-fly encryption. It can create a virtual encrypted disk within a file or a device-hosted encrypted volume on either an individual partition or an entire storage device. It supports Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X and Linux (using FUSE) and encrypted volumes can be made portable. The version for Windows Vista or XP can encrypt the boot partition or entire boot drive and has the ability to create and run a hidden encrypted operating system whose existence is deniable.

You may want to read about my earlier post, “Auditor and Technology; Importance of Data Security“.

Okay, don’t get me wrong. I believe that recording a video of your sexual act beyond the awareness and consent of your partner is plain “retarded-ness” at best (I mean there could be worse descriptions). And failure to secure and encrypt those stupid videos is a grave blunder.

Acapella Video: The Voca People

Here’s an amazing video from youtube, an acapella from the group called “The Voca People”. I’m still wondering how they do the drums and beats sounds.

The Filipinos I’m sure are more talented and I still have to watch out for that video. Bring on the Pinoy style!

Ricky Hatton Interviewed in Bisaya

I never thought this could be possible. But he was fluent at it. LOL.

This was supposed to be a video before the actual fight. I can barely understand the whole conversation (could someone translate this please?). But I admire the timing of the audio and video. I can imagine the effort in putting up this funny youtube video.
