Flexi phones: Would you like them?

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 was the most amazing phone I’ve ever seen so far in my entire life, but to tell you honestly, I was pretty much disappointed because it’s not the flexible phone I was expecting. But rumours came out and said that leading smartphone companies are going to launch something closer to my expectation. Thus, they invented the Flexible smartphones.

Samsung has created Samsung Galaxy Round. Here’s some of the things it does…

On the other hand, LG is joining the future trend, since it has invented the LG G-Flex, and I was amazed. I actually fell in love to its Wolverine (X-men) characteristics. Check it out:

Between the two, I would choose the one with Wolverine effect, the LG G-flex, unless if Samsung has a new feature to release. But all in all, both are perfect, especially for the people who always put their mobile phones or bags where it could damage. These smartphones are sure win.

Hope to see more of this in the coming years.

How’s your Smartphone Battery?

Smartphone users are all dealing with the same problem everyday: Battery life. Sometimes, I always wish there were AC outlets or usb ports everywhere so I can charge my phone right away, when I need it.

I experience this everyday of my life, even when I sleep. I never turn-off my 3G since I have always to be online for my job and whenever I’m downloading. I sometimes sleep with 90% of battery and wake up with 30% — and sometimes, even lower than that, otherwise it’s dead. I needed to recharge my phone as I take a bath going before I go to the office or somewhere else.

Because of that experience I thought of collecting the best tips I found in the world wide web on how to get your battery always “on”, which is I’m trying to implement now in my daily activities with my phone. Fortunately, there are plenty of them, so let’s start with…

The Second One

When I look at you,
Your eyes tell me everything in your soul.
I know you’re worried,
‘Cuz what we have is only a tiny piece.

The love you give
Is something more than just an ordinary.
For us, it real.
But it’s more than you and me.

You’re telling me I don’t deserve this.
(But why are you keep on holding on?)
You’re telling me this situation is hard to keep.
(We’re in love in the way it isn’t supposed to be)
Now, I know how it feels
To be second on your list
All I have is just the least
but it feels alright, I don’t know why.

My thoughts are running.
I fear of what we have might say good bye.
‘Cuz no matter who you choose,
It’s your heart that’s gonna melt down.

It’s hard to ask,
When you know you aren’t the real one.
Who am I to fight for us?
If it’s me who’s gonna ruined what you have

You’re telling me I don’t deserve this.
(But why are you keep on holding on?)
You’re telling me this situation is hard to keep.
(We’re in love in the way it isn’t supposed to be)
My only wish is
Don’t make decision when you’re so confused.
I would stay behind the mist,
If that’s the only way to make you mine.

Torture

I saw you smiling at me.
It went deep to my skin, deep into my love.
The blue and gray found a mix,
It turned bright for me on my lonely days.
But when you left me, the pain seemed bound to stay.

Across the brick-made walls,
Found a brittle heart, full of broken glass.
When you said “good bye, my love”
It shattered more into pieces of crystals,
How can I live without you now?

Bridge:
(Like)
Without the air, without something to breathe
Without water, without something to drink
Without light, who would help me to see?

Chorus:
The pain when you left me is endless
We love each other but we could no longer stay
The pain when you left pierce me like helpless
And there’s no more reason to stay

Thoughts of you is poison.
It stays within even I laugh with my bestfriends.
It soaks me, like I’m drowning,
It tortures me so much like hell on earth,
‘Cuz when you left me, the pain seemed bound to stay.

I lay down whole day in bed.
I couldn’t move my feet and runaway.
Goodbye lingers all the time
And everywhere I cry asking myself
How can I live without you now?

(Bridge)(Chorus)

Original by yours truly. Hope you all like it.

Are the Filipinos ready for Google Glass?

In the anime series Dragon Ball Z, we saw saiyans, or Frieza and his forces, used an eye radar as a monitor to detect the nearest dragon ball, know the status of their pods, calculate a distance to distance and measure the strength of their enemies. The only one that makes it “boom” is the aura of the super saiyan, Gouku. If I were to guess, I would think that Google Glass creator/inventor got the inspiration here. It makes sense that, in my own opinion, for people with active lifestyle Google Glass can be really helpful in their busy activities and businesses. Without holding on a phone, notepad, tablet or any devices that support their multitasking abilities, they can work on things all at the same time.

Google Glass was actually released via invite. Meaning, few people was able to get hold of it to test its functionality before it is mass released. It’s currently, undergoing many software update to make sure that every user will find it the new era of mobile gadget. But what could be the impact of this to the Filipino?

Well, if you travel from time to time via car, motorbike, bicycle (or kalesa), then good job, because this can be perfect for you. GPS is one of the things being developed in this device. It already ran many update for this functionality to make sure that it’ll truly guide you to the correct path you’re going to. It can also give you update about the “what’s ups?” in a certain location – like identify the common attraction or events by showing you popular photos of that particular place.

If you’re a person who loves to be updated, then it’s also right for you since it can do stuffs like searching in Google, play music and video and find news. All this via voice command – just like Siri and S Voice. It also screen of what you see and what you see from the glass. Well, no selfies here, except if you’re looking into a mirror.

I don’t how it will be distracting, but for sure there will be some factors that may affect your safety, most especially when you’re on-the-road. One of things I’m sure of here, it’ll catch the attention of many people. In fact, I can now imagine secretaries and bosses wearing this. And then in the future, even people from public relations and communications. But one of the businesses that should prepare for this gadget is no other than the Philippine cinema. They should be aware of this as well, since some people might use this for film piracy. No one could tell.

Other than that and to be honest, between the Smartwatches and this device, I think people would still choose the Smartwatches since it’s very flashy and, so far, have more functionality than Google glass. But I’d love to have one it the future. In spite that I ain’t fan of sport-type eye wear, I would still wear one of this if it’s launched here in the Philippines.

That’s it for now.

XOXOXOXOXO


BBM on iPhone and Android Phones

The long wait is finally over for iPhone and Android phone users because BBM is finally available in iTunes, Google play and Samsung store. (Yey!)

BBM Ejomlexus (1)

Truthfully, mixed emotions is what I felt on this release — I’m happy because I will now get to experience BBM since I haven’t touched a Blackberry smartphone before, and sad because, well, we know the falling story of Blackberry and that’s why they ended up making their supposedly exclusive app available to every mobile phones. And despite of the trending release of other messaging apps (i.e. Line, Kakao Talk, Viber and Wechat), BBM reportedly have been download 5 million times in just 8 hours, enough to say that many have really waited for this.

REGISTRATION

BBM Ejomlexus (2) BBM Ejomlexus (3) BBM Ejomlexus (4)

As first time user of BBM, I needed to line-up on a queue of an unknown number, I’ve submitted my email for registration, and I was able to “Create a Blackberry ID” and got my very own BBM Pin after a couple of days.

BBM Ejomlexus (6)

For those, who have BBM already, no longer have to wait that long. Just hit the “Sign In” button and you’re up.

(By the way, that’s my BBM PIN — add me)

SPEED

It’s faster versus the messaging apps I’ve mentioned. I think it’s because it requires few 3G MB to run.

FEATURES/UI

For the first time user like me, few things I’ve discovered:

1. Ping – just like YM, it has Buzz to alert your chatmates if you’re online or just want to caught their attention. It alerts you with the usual BBM or assigned tone; not with a loud awkward buzzer.

BBM Ejomlexus (8)

2. Light (LED) indicator – choose colours that will differentiate your BBM alert to the rest of your message app. The colours are white, yellow, green, cyan, blue and purple; or none. For me, I chose white since none of my app is using that colour.

3. Tabs – 2 purposes. #1 to check if your active chats, groups, invites or updates on the activity, and #2 to configure the settings and access help.

BBM Ejomlexus (9) BBM Ejomlexus (10)

4. Ads – so far, so good. I ain’t seeing any ads at the moment since week 1. But for sure there’s a reason behind with all these release. Later on we will find out.

5. R, D and check – You’ll be able to see this while chatting. It normally stands for Read, Delivered and Sent. These identify whether your message has reached the receiver.

BBM Ejomlexus (7)

6. Emoticon – What messaging can stand without this feature? None, of course. But these are none moving ones, just enough to say what you feel in a fraction of a symbol.

BBM Ejomlexus (11)

7. Group chat – I don’t know the number of volume of people you can invite to join a group conversation, but as far as I know it can accommodate as many as you want.

8.  Attach – You can attach a note and picture and send it via chat.

9. Status – You are also allowed to share what your currently feeling in this feature. You can tell people if you’re busy or not really. You can, by the way,  tell people your activities.

BBM Ejomlexus (13)

10. Invite – You may choose among Barcode Scan, PIN, Email, SMS and NFC to invite people to add you or join you on BBM.

11. Profile Picture – Aside from your status, you can also set your favorite picture as your DP.

BBM Ejomlexus (12)

MY POINT OF VIEW

Well, it is a great app so far – a must-try. I invited some of my friends to try it as well, so we can experience how fast it is compare to other messaging app.

I just hope for the best for the Blackberry about this. That’s it!

XOXOXOXOXO


My Hair — Bleaching

Some people think of my hair as an evolving pokemon since it changes, if not most of the time, monthly — every time I go to the salon. Personally, though, I call it the evolution of my boredom + artistry.

Ejomlexus Hair

You’ve seen my hair straight, with patterns, almost shaved, in different style and color; but right now I did the thing that I haven’t tried before: bleaching.

It wasn’t my plan, really. It’s just that a friend has convinced me to do it for some reason. But I eventually liked it as it transform to my target and that is to have a Storm (X-men)-like white hair.

Bleaching was tough and maintenance is kind of expensive. It takes 30 to 45 minutes to get result per session and you need up to 4-5 sessions to get a very light result, depending on the strength of your hair.

When I finally couldn’t afford to whiten my hair with the use of bleach, and I also feared that I might kill my strands by over using it, I had already needed the touch of the experts from Bench Fix Salon at SM San Lazaro. (Look for Arnold Macapagal, if you want to have a style like the one below)

Few things I’ve discovered:

– Bleached or blonde hair turns green when you wet your hair in the swimming pool. It can be restored, though, by putting tomato paste all over your hair and leaving it for 30 minutes.

– Bleach or color in Filipino’s hair fades easily, so you need a shampoo that can keep the color for long.

– Wait at least 2 months before you re-color it, so it won’t damage your scalp.
