For those who don’t have the patience to read this post all the way through, let’s get the bottom line out of the way. The TLDR of it is this: The Marshall Major III Bluetooth is perhaps one of the best sounding on-ear bluetooth headphones in its price range that I’ve ever tried. It may not be as affordable as your common garden variety headphones, but it most certainly wasn’t designed and created to be such.Read more
With the latest findings by experts that COVID-19 is actually airborne, we have to be extra careful in choosing the kind of mask we wear whenever we leave the house.
We have to use masks that can protect us from Coronavirus microdroplets suspended in the air. At the same time, we need masks that can prevent us from infecting others whenever we cough, sneeze, or talk.Read more
For some reason, as I was looking for something productive and interesting to watch online earlier today, I happened to chance upon one of Inquirer.net’s live webinars on Facebook. The topic of this particular session was about mental health, a subject of discussion that I know is very present and relevant in this day and age, but something that needs to be brought more to the forefront.
And since I was able to catch the webinar right before it actually started, I decided to stay and listen to the many notable speakers who were scheduled to discuss about the challenges of mental health and the possible ways to help people going through these difficulties, especially now that the pandemic and lockdown has triggered more anxiety and depression in many of our fellow Filipinos.Read more
Father’s Day is fast approaching. Imagine that! Time seems to be passing by reeeaaaally fast during this quarantine period. Hahaha!
While many of us would rather remain in the comforts and safety of our own homes, and dining out seems like a far-fetched idea for the time being, that doesn’t mean celebrations can’t be festive and merry.Read more
We now live in what many call the “new normal” because of COVID-19. And while this seems to be our way of life for the foreseeable future, households and offices are still figuring out how to navigate through our present reality.
Practically every industry has been gravely affected and impacted by this global pandemic. Businesses and many companies have downsized, restructured, or even worse, closed. Sadly, because of this, a significant number of Filipinos from different walks of life have lost employment and livelihood.
For those of us who have lost jobs or are in fear of losing them very soon, the dread of uncertainty is the darkest cloud looming over our heads; not the virus itself.Read more
Wow. Over 3 months of being holed up inside the house due to our ongoing Community Quarantine (aka lockdown) can really affect one’s sanity. And even with the recent shift of Metro Manila to a less strict lockdown (aka General Community Quarantine or GCQ), my family and I are still not comfortable leaving the house unless truly necessary or urgent.Read more
Be extra careful, everyone. If you think multiple fake accounts pretending to be you is your only problem, you could be wrong.
Apart from online trolls duplicating your Facebook accounts, apparently they have also started mass reporting legit Facebook accounts in order to take them down.
It happened to a friend of mine just this morning. See screenshot below.
If it could happen to my friend, it can definitely happen to you, too.
Well, here are a couple of steps I took in order to further secure my Facebook account in the event of future attacks and online abuse. You might want to do the same.Read more
Self-quarantine has affected many of us in so many different ways. Some have had difficulty avoiding feelings of isolation and anxiety, while some are finding it hard taking care of one’s physical health.
Being aware of these things have encouraged me to take extra steps in order to care for my mental and physical well-being.Read more
Guys, I have a question which probably seems all too familiar to some of you…
Have you ever had to transfer money or pay bills while traveling abroad or some far off province but could not do so because there is little to no mobile network?
We’ve all probably been there before, right? It sucks, doesn’t it?
Well, thankfully, with the newest security feature of BPI’s online and mobile banking platforms called the “Mobile Key,” you no longer have to worry!Read more
