by: Elmer MontejoApril 14, 2014

Google patched most of its services last week (including Search, Gmail, YouTube, Wallet, Play, Apps, and App Engine). Recently, the search company also updated the list of patched services to include Google AdWords, DoubleClick, Maps, Maps Engine, Earth, Analytics, and Tag Manager — all of which the company claims to have been patched last week but were “inadvertently left out” of the original list.

In the same announcement Google also declared all Android [...]

by: Elmer MontejoApril 13, 2014

So, you are finally seeing the light and decide to live in the world of light. This means pain — especially the pain of having to give up old, dark, enslaving habits.

by: Elmer MontejoApril 11, 2014

Samsung has put out a new 30-second ad for its latest baby, the Samsung Galaxy S5. In just a half minute, the ad courses through so many wonderful ideas and concepts, as well as fascinating phone features without losing track of its main emphases — what one’s life can be if it is powered by the Galaxy S5.

The narration itself explicitly characterizes that kind of life as being able to “capture life in a blink,” “download the world in an instant,” and “live carefree.” All of these are fueled by three of the Galaxy S5’s chief features: fast camera autofocus, fast network experience, and water and dust resistance [...]
