Google Buzz: Right on My Gmail Account!

Google’s latest service, the Google Buzz finally reached my account a day after its big announcement. Actually, on the day of announcement I’ve been hitting the F5 key on my keyboard several times even though I was well aware that Buzz will not reach all Gmail accounts for a few days after the announcement date.




And, finally yesterday, when I opened my Gmail, this message appears on my browser:



At last, I’m in to the hottest buzz in town, the Google Buzz. After several clicks, I managed to follow my some of my email contacts. I even connected my Google Buzz to automatically fetch updates on my Twitter, Flickr and Blogger accounts. Wow!




Google Buzz vs Twitter vs Facebook

Many analysts criticized Google as being late in the rapidly growing Social Networking industry. In my opinion, Google might’ve been late but it doesn’t mean they cannot keep up with the leading social networks such as Twitter and Facebook. Though being the first gives you significant advantage, it doesn’t always guarantee that you are winning the competition. And if you come to think of it, neither Facebook nor Twitter is first on Social Networking. Friendster is even earlier but look at it now? Its popularity is continuously being eroded by the likes Facebook and Twitter. Quality is the real measure of success. In Social Networks industry though, quality service means a few steps higher. You have to reach the heart and minds of your customers—the web surfers.

Facebook thrives on its attractive applications. Twitter on the other hand saves you lots of time by being able to communicate your less-than-140-words thought in real time. Google Buzz promises a much clearer message among the many noise brought about by the explosion of Social Networks in the web.

How about you? Will you join the latest Buzz?

FREE Calls to Your Favorite Fast-food Chain on Globe Phones

In the age of mobile apps and ordering via internet, people are increasingly going from "calling" to "tapping and clicking" their fast food orders. The arrival of Honestbee, Foodpanda and just recently, Grab Food is a testament to how much this trend is growing. The visual effect these apps provide has a huge advantage over voice only "call".



In an apparent attempt to pull back some users in using the hotlines, Jollibee Group teams up with Globe Telecoms to allow free calls on their Globe handset to order from their favorite fastfood. Yes, even without a load, you can make a call to the Hotlines. Here's the promotional poster.

Just dial these numbers to order:
Jollibee - #87000 Mang Inasal - #71111 Chowking - #98888 Greenwich - #55555 Burger King - #22222

How Much Does a MRI Scan Costs in the Philippines?

My dad recently needs to have a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scan for his prostate problem. So I made a little research on how much does it cost to have one. Well, turns out, it depends on many factors such as which part of the body is to be scanned. There's also this technique called "MRI with contrast" wherein the patient will be injected with a chemical to make the scan clearer. For your information this technique of adding contrast is know as Gadolinium Contrast Medium. It adds cost to the procedure but with more clarity, the more you can trust the diagnosis.

So, in my father's case, we had a Prostate MRI and I assume it's without contrast since he was never injected with the "contrast" chemicals. We got it in i-Scan Healthcare Inc here in Quezon City. The cost is 13000 Pesos. Please take not that the amount was just for the scan and the result will be read by a separate professional. Some laboratories offer this service (i.e. the reading) and t…

SCAM: My First Scam Text This Year; 850000 Pesos from GMA Kapuso Foundation

It's a brand new year for everyone, including local scammers. And despite all the efforts by PLDT and Globe Telecom to curb text message scammers, from time to time, they still creep out and show up in our inboxes. And as hard to believe as the messages of winning some great amounts of money is the fact that there are still people who believe them. I personally know someone and that scam text message triggered events that turn her life upside down. So my point is, we still need to be careful regarding these scam messages. The danger is real!


So without further ado, here's the scam message I received a few days ago. On Sunday, January 7, 2018 at exactly 3:33PM (PH time), I received this message from a certain Atty. Jhon Acosta with phone number 09552962911
