Globe's 3G Rates, Masa Unfriendly
Sunday, April 30, 2006

Captain's Log Supplemental Stardate -317328.71

Would you browse the internet wirelessly for P0.15/kb on Globe Telecoms? Or would you rather browse all you can for only P10/ 30mins on Smart? Globe just launched their 3G services today and Smart last Feb 14. During Smart's trial period, access to their 3G services were free. But Globe started their 3G with REGULAR GSM rates for their video call and internet access. Smart will start charging for their 3G services starting May 1 2006.

If we'll compare the rates, Smart wins with the "masa" people. P10/30minutes of browse-all-you-can (3G and GRPS) compared to Globe's inaccurate P0.15/kilobyte scheme. Video Calls are also free on Smart until May 31 2006. Smart also lowered their MMS rates to P1, for Smart-Smart MMS, and P2 to other networks.

Taken from Globe's 3G Website:

Why are you charging Globe subscribers for 3G transactions when Smart is not?

The service is highly affordable as you will be able to experience 3G and/or HSDPA incl video calls, video streaming, and hi-speed internet browsing at just regular 2G prices. In Globe, we always make it a point that subscribers get the best experience when using our service. That means video calls are connected with less likelihood of being dropped, video streaming is clear and uninterrupted, and browsing and downloading is fast and reliable. By offering 3G and HSDPA / 3.5G services at 2G/ GSM prices, we minimize the likelihood of abuse from other subscribers and guarantee a better 3G / HSDPA / 3.5G experience for all our subscribers within the 3G network.

YE. CHARGE US... CHARGE US WITH SKYROCKET RATES. PER KILOBYTE CHARGING. STUPID. Imagine spending P153.6 on a 1MB file download?!!

(1MB = 1024KB)... P0.15 * 1024 kilobytes = P153.60!!! Who's stupid enough to spend that amount?!

Globe launches 3G and HSDPA

Captain's Log Supplemental Stardate -317327.92



Globe Telecoms finally launched their 3G services today after beta-testing it to corporate subscribers. Smart launched theirs last Feb 14 FREE for testing. Smart and Globe basically have the SAME services being offered to subscribers but Globe is starting their 3G and 3.5G(HSDPA) services with current GSM rates. Smart will start charging for their data access starting May 1, 2006 while their video calls will remain free until May 31, 2006.

Globe's rates are preposterous. P0.15/kb??? Deja vu? A broadband access that charges per kb? What's the use of that Highspeed if your credits would disappear as fast as the website renders on your screen? Globe should follow Smart's rate with P10/30mins of browing, whether browsing on GPRS or 3G. Globe should also consider lowering their MMS rates like Smart Telecoms P1/MMS.

Try Yahoo! Mail Beta Now

Captain's Log Stardate -317313.92



Want to try out the new Yahoo! Mail Beta? The GoogleOS Blog posted a trick that would convert your normal Yahoo!Mail to a sparkling new-AJAX-powered-slow-assed webmail. Here are the steps to convert your Yahoo! Mail:


1. Log in to your Yahoo! Mail and click OPTIONS
2. Click ACCOUNT OPTIONS on the left panel
3. Edit your MEMBER INFORMATION then on the GENERAL PREFERENCES section, change your Preferred Content to Germany, France or UK. (Remember your orginal Preferred Content as you will be changing this back)
4. Click Finished.
5. Go back to Yahoo! Mail and you'll be prompted to try out Yahoo! Mail Beta.
6. After logging in, change your Preferred Content back to your original settings.

That's it! You'll now have a slowwwww-ajax-gmail-wannabe-webmail. I've been using Yahoo! Mail Beta since December 2005 and I've mentioned before that I'm beggining to dislike Gmail after using this Beta service. But after a few days, and I'm back with GMAIL. Yahoo! Mail Beta is slow. Doesn't matter if you're on broadband or dial up, but the fact remains that IT IS SLOW.

Toni Gonzaga's "We Belong" Another Rip Off?
Friday, April 21, 2006

Captain's Log Supplemental Stardate -317303.73

Gulong ng Palad's theme was "inspired" by a French porn film, the original Pinoy Big Brother theme was a partial copy of Chandeliers but Orange and Lemons kept on denying it. Now, with the help of Andrew's super-sonic ear, it's Toni Gonzaga's We Belong.

Andrew's obssession to Utada Hikaru lead to this discovery. Toni Gonzaga's We Belong has an uncanny resemblance to Utada Hikaru's First Love. I occassionally listen to Utada, but I dont memorize or remember her songs. But the first time I heard Toni Gonzaga's version, a spiderman-like tingling sensation struck my senses. I knew that I've heard that tune before but I'm not sure exactly what or where, until Andrew posted this entry on his blog.

What's with Utada, besides her obsession with Nintendogs, and they kept on copying her music? :P

We Belong's musical arranger should have an explanation ready to those angry Utada Hikaru fans. Right Andrew?

We Belong - Toni Gonzaga


First Love - Utada Hikaru

PLDT.com Dispute is Over

Captain's Log Supplemental Stardate -317301.52

If only PLDT asked nicely in the first place to purchase pldt.com and pldt.org from Mr. Kaimo...

THE PHILIPPINE Long Distance Telephone Co. (PLDT) said it has decided to drop its six-year domain and trade name dispute against Gerry Kaimo, owner of the "pldt.com" domain name, in exchange for the latter's agreement to turn over several domain names he owns.

"It was not a money settlement. PLDT decided to drop the case after Kaimo decided to turnover the pldt.com and pldt.org domain names to us," Ramon Isberto, PLDT spokesperson, told INQ7.net in a telephone interview.

Isberto also confirmed that PLDT entered into a compromise agreement with Kaimo sometime in March. "This [agreement] has been lodged with a local court," he added, noting that Kaimo is in the process of transferring the two domain names to the telephone company.

Group hug! Friends on Yahoo! and MSN can soon share instant messages.

For instant messaging fans, this rates right up there with the Berlin Wall.

Working hand-in-hand with our friends at MSN, we're hammering out a solution to connect our two thriving global IM communities.

Which means soon (we're thinking the first half of 2006), friends on Yahoo! Messenger with Voice and MSN Messenger can see when friends are online, share IMs and emoticons, easily add new contacts from either service to their Messenger Lists, and more.

You've been asking for it.

And now we're delivering the world's largest IM community. It's a wonderful bridge that makes staying in touch easier and more enjoyable for everyone. Hope you can join us.

Oh Neighbors!

Captain's Log Stardate -317264.7



Oh yes! Our neighbor has done it again! Before there were falling drums, falling bars of steel, cigarette butts still lit thrown near some flamable materials in our house, tamarind sweets thrown to our roof, and many more. Now? FALLING ROCKS, EMBERS, AND A DISASTER WAITING TO HAPPEN ---their stupid galvanized iron sheets. If you watch the video above, you'll see that a little more wind might break the iron's hold and fall on our yard.



A few years ago, a steel bar fall in one of our dog bowls. The impact made a dent in the bowl. I tried to create the same dent by hacking the bowl with my arnis stick. But I failed. Just imagine if that steel bar hit the head of my grandma, who was just lucky since she went inside the house a few seconds before the steel bar fell.

Just last year:

June 24, 2005


And now, they're renovating again. Ember and large rocks have already fallen in our yard.

April 7, 2006


Specimen 1: Look at those large steel pipes just there sticking out. With no safety harness or net to hold if it falls down.

Specimen 2: A poorly placed and supported galvanized iron. If you've watched the video, you'll see that this is a disaster in the making.

Specimen 3: Building code of Quezon City states that you must have at least 2 meters distance from a wall to place a window. Their window is not even a centimeter away from our wall.



Their gutter is also ON our property.



This large rock and chunk of steel fell again in our yard moments ago. The rock is huge. Just compare its size to the 5 peso coin. What if those things fall onto our heads? Hmmm... I don't care if they read this but the hell. Our lives are now at stake here. Tsk.

Any lawyers here want to do a pro bono for me? :)

Apple Opens Intel Macs to Windows XP!
Wednesday, April 05, 2006

Captain's Log Supplemental Stardate -317260.26



Karlo and I failed to install OSX on our PCs... now Apple released a boot manager, called the Boot Camp, that would enable Intel-Mac owners to install Windows XP on their machines!

More and more people are buying and loving Macs. To make this choice simply irresistible, Apple will include technology in the next major release of Mac OS X, Leopard, that lets you install and run the Windows XP operating system on your Mac. Called Boot Camp (for now), you can download a public beta today.
Mactel users can download a free beta here

Here's another interesting part on Apple's website:
Word to the Wise

Windows running on a Mac is like Windows running on a PC. That means it’ll be subject to the same attacks that plague the Windows world. So be sure to keep it updated with the latest Microsoft Windows security fixes.

HAAHAHHA!

Captain's Log Stardate -317257.29



The image above was the original lens of Lalaine's Canon SD-200, and it looks like an eyepiece of a Borg drone... The camera just went dead and when brought to Canon, they said that it's a defective lens and busted fuse. Total charges were P8,000+



We got the camera yesterday but after a few hours... boom! Lalaine's little sister dropped it. COOL. -_-. We returned the camera to Canon this afternoon just to find out that we'll be again spending P8,000 for the repair of the damned digital camera. Canon will be calling us tomorrow for the exact charges of the camera. Lalaine will be spending a total of P16,000++ if she ever decided to pay another P8,000... that's a total of P16,000! A couple of thousand pesos less than a brand new Canon Ixus (asian version of the Canon SD 200).

Smart 3G Experience
Sunday, April 02, 2006

Captain's Log Supplemental Stardate -317252



A 3G logo appeared on my father's phone while I was installing some applications this afternoon. I got excited since Globe has not launched their 3G services to the public unlike Smart. I was about to try browsing when the 3G logo disappeared. >_< Itching to try 3G, I loaded my Smart SIM and whoala! There's a 3G signal in our neighborhood!

First thing I tried was to download the configuration settings for the phone. For Smart, just send SET 3G (phone model) to 211. (Ex. SET 3G 6630). Thanks to BNC-XE, I have the number of Smart Wireless Shangri-La's demo unit. And I've also learned that the operator of that unit is Chrystal. HAHAHA! And so I tried the video call...



The phone I'm using doesn't have a cam in front, but it can still broadcast a video to the other party using the camera at the back. The video quality? Just imagine you're watching a real media video stream on your computer about 3 years ago. Pixels baby. Pixels. The audio is good, almost the same as a regular voice call. Because of my excitement, I wasn't able to talk to the Smart girl on screen. I could see her but all she can see on her phone is my computer screen. Hahaha! She's cute BTW. :P

Next thing I've tried is the mobile internet. Browsing in 3G is faster compared to my Globe GPRS. A few seconds faster than browsing in dial up. But it's still slow. It took a while for our online store to load on the browser. Smart 3G's homepage has links to live streams and music videos. I tried to connect to the live streams and I had a hard time connecting to ABS-CBN and GMA-7's streams. I was surpised when the streams finally loaded, the quality of the videos and audio is clear. Clearer than a voice call.



I was also watching ABS-CBN on TV and the 3G streams on the phone was only delayed for about 8-10 seconds. Not bad.

For now, Smart 3G is free. You can literally make unlimited video calls to anyone who's on Smart. Enjoy them while they last. Expect a not so cheap rates when those telcos formally launch their 3G services. I'm hoping for a SUN Cellular unlimited plan though :D

Captain's Log Supplemental Stardate -317248.18



Ano daw? AHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

They've changed their format from an English newscast to a Filipino format, but they still fail deliver their news properly? I remembered Vicky Morales telling their viewers about Pamorningan sa kamara... WTF?! Does the pamorningan word even exists in our dictionary?
