Cherry Mobile One Review: Nexus for the Masses!

When the Cherry Mobile One was announced along with another Android One device for the Philippines, I’ll admit to being a bit mehhhh about it.

MiPad Launched in India, Could the Philippines be Next?

For a while I had been salivating over the MiPad, a high end Android tablet with a design that combines the looks of the iPad Mini and iPhone 5c running Android instead of iOS. Unfortunately, it’s taken its sweet time coming here and I’ve just about moved on, thinking of maybe picking up something else [...]

Brother Philippines Customer+ Loyalty Program

I’m no stranger to Brother products. We have an electric sewing machine from the 80s at home that my uncle still likes to use every now and then. It continues to work and the only thing I remember that we ever had to replace was a light bulb. Some of may not know it though, [...]
