It’s really amazing how the internet has revolutionized our way of life in every way possible, wouldn’t you agree?
Apart from the ways our connected world has changed the way we work, play, learn and socialize, it has even incredibly altered our viewing habits.
I remember back when I was a kid, we only had 5 television channels (2, 4, 7, 9 and 13). 24-hour programming, let alone cable television were remotely even figments of one’s imagination. Apart from that, cartoon programs were only shown every 4PM in the afternoon and during Saturday mornings. Bummer, right?
Today, not only has 24-hour cable programming become common even to the regular joe, it is actually slowly losing its market all thanks to the way high-speed broadband internet connections have changed the way we consume entertainment content.
In our household, our family hardly watches regular television programs on cable television anymore. We don’t find ourselves rushing home, trying to catch the start of a particular show anymore. That’s because everyone in our house has gone the way of STREAMING content — all thanks to our recently installed Globe at Home high-speed broadband internet connection.
I recently got my hands on a nifty (but not uncommon) device that many people use nowadays — a Bluetooth headset. But this one isn’t the kind of headset used for listening to music or drowning out external noise. It’s the kind one wears for phone calls mostly.
And it’s not just any kind of Bluetooth headset… this particular unit is made by one of the most reputable brands in the industry. Plantronics.
This, my friends, is the Plantronics Voyager 5200. It’s a handsome little earpiece that you wear on either ear and comfortably sits there, ready to assist you during phone calls.
A couple of weeks ago, I had the opportunity to drive the Ford Ranger to Victoria, Tarlac, to check out Bambike and the positive force for change they have become for the Gawad Kalinga community. It was one amazing day trip that was equally enjoyable as it was eye-opening.
Just recently, I had the pleasure of taking the beautifully engineered Ford Explorer out for a spin. During this time, I drove my family up to Baguio City for some much needed rest and recreation.
From the moment, I first sat inside the driver’s seat of this handsome baby, I immediately knew that the Ford Explorer was going to be a joy to experience. Boy, was I right! Not only that… it actually exceeded my expectations in terms of performance, features, and delightful surprises.
