SmartSuite came to challenge Airtable

Airtable has been my favorite No Code/Low Code tool for some time now. In a few years I’ve been using it so far, I haven’t really found a good alternative. Even then, Airtable cannot rest on its laurels. Especially now, a new kid in town, SmartSuite, came to challenge its position. Airtable has already been introducing substantial improvements recently, but it needs to up its game even further to hold on to its lead.

One of my favorite Youtuber, Gareth Pronovost, details down the 3 gamechanging features about SmartSuite that Airtable has to catch up on:

In the world of Google TV’s, why do you still need the Chromecast function?

In 2020, Google introduced the fourth generation of its Chromecast, dubbed as Chromecast with Google TV (CCwGTV), which was the first time it came with Google TV (a modified Android TV user interface) and a remote. So, in the world of Google TV’s (and Android TV’s in general), is there still a need for the Google Cast function?

Here are the reasons why we still need the Google Cast around:

Queue up YouTube Videos

The one thing I love about the Chromecast is the ability to queue up videos you want to watch from your YouTube mobile app. Oftentimes, when I want to YouTube and chill, I open a video on my YouTube mobile app, cast that thing to my TV with a Chromecast, browse more of the homepage of the YouTube app, then add as many more videos as I like to watch next to the queue.

Although you can queue up videos as well in the web version of YouTube, the same is not true on Android TV’s. I just find it so inefficient to have to quit the video you’re currently watching, browse though the homepage, and select the single video you want to watch next.

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!

When I Got Into the World of EOS

This is the old commercial of the Canon EOS 350D that actually inspired me to take up photography as a hobby:

I once was hooked into photography that I bought every accessory I could barely afford. Now, it’s so sad to see them just lying around, gathering dusts. ‘Continue Reading When I Got Into the World of EOS’

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 Sungha Jung: The Next Youtube Sensation?

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.

Duha ka round gale hah…..LOL…
