Rumor Has It: Vodafone Philippines

[ February 18, 2012 | 1 comments ]

Vodafone Philippines


Vodafone has expressed its intention to cater the emerging market of the Philippines in terms of telephone services.

Through their Twitter account using an account name of VodafonePH, they have twitted a message indicating: “We are coming soon!” They have also successfully set-up some accounts in major social networking sites like Youtube and Facebook claiming the name as “Vodafone Philippines”. There are speculations from internet users that Vodafone has registered the domain address http://www.vodafone.ph.

Vodafone was the second world's largest telephone company today in terms of subscriber quantity. Some rumors that is circulating in the internet, Vodafone will be in partner with the San Miguel Corporation (SMC), the Philippines' leading food company. But both parties have not yet confirmed not denied the issue. Perhaps there could be possibilities because as it was indicated in the Philippine Constitution, any foreign company can't own 100 percent control especially if this is a public utility firm.

But who knows, this speculation might draw into fruition. This telco should be watchful with its steps in entering the local market. It will be tighter war against those who are now reigning the industry.


Pinterest Captivates More Traffics Than Google + and Youtube

[ February 4, 2012 | 0 comments ]



Why having a Pinterest account is a big deal? Because Pinterest has become more active in driving more traffic referral into a site. Despite its being novice with a period of 2 years existence in the social networking arena, Pinterest has now a share of 3.6 percent among its rival, just next to Twitter.


As of January 2012, the service of Pinterest had overtaken Google +, Reddit, Youtube and Linkedin. The progress of Pinterest is a live explanation of my other blogs because when I opened those sites, I immediately integrates them with Pinterest. And I saw a captivation of traffics of unique visitors linking my sites.


The service enables users to create online bulletin boards, or “pinboards,” for popular categories such as home decor, food and wedding inspiration. Members can use Pinterest’s “Pin It” bookmarklet tool and iPhone app to save things they see online and offline, and explore and repin the images their friends collect via their personal newsfeeds. The website is especially popular among women, who account for 58% of Pinterest’s traffic, according to Experian Hitwise.



Pinterest account can't be acquire in just a simple sign-up. You need an invitation, and if ever you may have, you still have to wait for many days after the approval of your account.


Here's how this social networking site works for progress:


Things you should know about Pinterest.

Live Photo Editing Picnik will be Closing

[ January 22, 2012 | 1 comments ]



Recently, I have noticed that some of the products of Google are syndicated with the online photo editing site, Picnik. It's a bit peculiar for me but beneficial because I would not be opening Adobe Photoshop just to give judgement to my images for uploading online.

Here's what you see when you open their website:



Officially, this coming April 19, 2012 the integration of Picnik will take effect after they joined the search engine powerhouse Google in 2010.

Still, after the said merge, Picnik will continuously cater live photo editing in a more improved and awsome way. This will also opening another door because Google+ will be using Picnik.

Premium members of the said site will also be receiving their membership fee refund or money back in full amount.

Wikipedia, the largest online encyclopedia was covered with total darkness. This was after they announced their participation against the most controversial bill in the U.S. Government, the Stop Online Privacy Act(SOPA) and Protect IP Act (PIPA).

“For over a decade, we have spent millions of hours building the largest encyclopedia in human history. Right now, the U.S. Congress is considering legislation that could fatally damage the free and open Internet.
