Social media marketing is a fairly new but powerful medium to communicate a message to a target audience. Its success depends mainly on the virality factor, that is, the ability to pass the message to another person in real-time speed.

Less than a year after the newest iPad — the iPad 3 — was launched, Apple unveiled again today the latest update to the world’s most popular tablet.

Last week marked the third month I subscribed to SkyBroadband internet. As promised in the earlier article SkyBroadband internet trial review, I will post an update describing how the first three months of SkyBroadband subscription went.
First, let it be known that I was not paid to make this post and I am merely describing an objective experience with the two internet service providers (ISP) I have subscribed to in the past. I do not work and have never worked for SkyCable/SkyBroadband or Smart Corp. and will not get any benefit, in whatever form, by making this post.

The new Apple iPhone 5 is finally here.
The company unveiled yesterday the latest version of its hugely popular smartphone. Most of the features have already been leaked to the public weeks or months ago, but millions of Apple fanboys and upcoming converts were still generally satisfied with the launch.
Apple announced that the new iPhone will be on public sale starting September 21 in nine countries, including the US, UK, Canada, Germany, France, Australia, Japan, Hong Kong, and Singapore. It will be sold in other countries months later.

After more than a month of posting hibernation, I’m finally back online. I recently moved to a condo at The Fort and, although I have already applied for an internet connection weeks ago, until now PLDT has not contacted me for an update. I followed up my application two weeks ago and PLDT told me my internet application is still being processed. If their slow processing is an indication of how slow my internet connection will be, then I think I’m better off looking for a new internet service provider.
