Mga balitang techie

Dahil napagana ko na ang koneksyon ng Macbok ni Mhay at ng Nokia phone niya, at gamit ko na ngayon ang Smart 3G sa pamamagitan nito, narito ang ilang balitang techie:

  • Update: Kababasa ko lang ng balitang ito sa PC World–binili raw ng Google ang Zingku, isang mobile social networking site.
  • Maaari nang sa Western Union kunin ang kinita sa Google Adsense ang mga Pilipinong publishers. Nalaman ko ang magandang balitang ito tungkol sa tinatawag na “Philippine Google Economy” sa blog ni Yuga.
  • Mula naman sa blog ni J. Angelo, nabalitaan kong puwede na ring tumanggap ng pondo ang PayPal accounts ng mga members na nasa Pilipinas. Masama ito para sa Xoom, na hindi nagbayad dati ng referral fee ko.
  • Nasa www.makapalm.com na ang Palm blog ko. Ang latest entry ko ay tungkol sa bagong Palm Centro.

Samantala, balik muna ako sa pananaliksik.

In the ever-expanding world of Filipino bloggers, 28-year old journalist Ederic Eder stands out for his tenacity to blog in Filipino, the native language.

In fact, we remember him for bagging a special “Pinoy Ako” plum in the 2007 Philippine Blog Awards. He says blogging in Filipino was a conscious, practical decision since it’s the language he and his readers are most comfortable with, it’s also the “soul” of his country of birth. Aside from authoring his personal blog, Eder is also the founding editor of the Filipino youth e-zine Tinig.com, maintains Titik ni Ederic, a repository of his writings as well as a host of other websites like LuisTeodoro.com, Our Daily Txt and PinoyEbooks.

ZTE ringtone

From TXTPower.org

Mobile activist group TXTPower last night launched the AB-ZTE-FG protest ringtone, as it called on the public to remain vigilant over the US$329-million scam involving persons closely linked to President Arroyo.

TXTPower President Anthony Ian Cruz encouraged the public to download, use, re-post and forward the ringtone “as a sign of our collective anger over the latest scandal to hit the Arroyo administration and demand that the investigation result in the prosecution of bribers, bribetakers, fixers and influence-peddlers.”
