Philippine elections is coming very near. Have you decided on who to elect and choose as our country’s new leaders? It’s never easy, some of them are just taking advantage of the power of their money through spending a lot not only on television commercials but also online political advertisments.
While that sounds cool and “techie” for some this is annoying. Others may eventually remember them through these ways though thus, vote them up even if they don’t actually know them. As long as the name rings a bell, one vote is given.
But can they really be trusted? This is why I’m skeptic about these political ads in social networks and major websites. It makes me think if these people are just using technology for the sake of winning or to really let the world know WHAT they can do.
As I mentioned before, I’ve been hooked to my Nokia X5 again. Aside from these I’ve discovered how to purchase from Nokia Ovi Store a few months ago. In our country, Philippines – they don’t really allow usage of Visa Cards like how it was with iTunes. So it’s pretty much of a hassle. Not even by Gcash or Smartmoney. But somehow near, I guess.
I purchased 3 themes which I will also introduce for my Nokia X5 website, Strawberried (strawberried.net) but it’s not open yet. Sorry. Among all my purchased themes though, my favorite is Dino.
Dino Theme from MMMOOO
This is from MMMOOO, I also bought the Blackberry version of this but you know, it’s wayyyy better in Nokia. Why oh why? I wish they ported those cute icons. The colors blend in well so much. Just perfect for my candy phone!
To purchase from Nokia Ovi Store
1. Create your Nokia Ovi Account (you will be asked upon log in Nokia Store)
You can also check this through Options -> Sign in/Register -> Settings
2. Just follow the instructions. The key here is to make sure you’ve filled up what your primary phone number is
and that you’ve selected Phone Bill as your payment gateway during your account setup.
3. Load up your phone with load and of how much you’re gonna need (Autoload, Smart eLoad)
4. At Nokia Ovi Store, simply purchase or hit buy. Your load will be deducted of how much the application or theme you bought is.
That simple! However, it’d really be much better if purchases using Visa Cards and Master Cards were possible. Even Gcash and Smartmoney would do.
Gadgets and everything “tech” are really nice. Everything else that technology has for us, perhaps. However, lately, there are more “gaps” than bridges to communication.
For example, lately, it’s been hard getting the customer service of phone network providers (and internet) to understand their clients. Although it’s not their fault, it would be nice if they answered like the answering service at AnsweringServiceAgency.com.
It’s just over quality, I think some call center companies are thinking of quantity instead. Communication is very essential and a good one can lead to better results and sales after all.
Finally, Google releases Google Chrome for iOS devices. For quite some time now, most iOS users were depending on Dolphin Browser and other fancy browsers that could compare to Chrome’s features. Now that the official is released, what do you think will it bring? Perhaps Safari will have to go now?
However, those who have tried out claims it’s not really Google Chrome but rather still the built-in OS because of this:
Google’s browser UI wrapped around the Webkit rendering engine
I haven’t tried it but about to download, it’s available in iTunes now so give it a try! Google Chrome - iTunes App Store
