Myphone QW28 Duo Review - Features and Price

The Myphone QW28 Duois another qwerty model from the Myphone products. It is currently one of the pricey units from Myphone. What makes it more expensive compared to their relatively budget array of mobile phones is that it's equipped with good attractions. Sold at the current price of about 6000 pesos (more or less $136), still pretty affordable, here is a summary of its features

You will also find enough space for your fingers when typing in its keypad. Same with Duo Myphone units, the dual sim card capability works best if you need to use more than one contact number at the same time without the hassle of having another mobile phone. The unit also comes with built bu…

Battle for Tablet PC: Ipad v.s Samsung Galaxy Tab

The Apple ipad has been around for quite sometime now. It easily gained popularity especially among Apple fans from the time it was unveiled. Clearly, the ipad has a good share among tablet pc in the market.

Myphone Duo Phones - Reviews and Prices

Myphone is one of the new comers among the giant players in the mobile phone industry. These mobile phones are made in the Philippines. Myphone is one of the pioneers and popular brand made locally and has goal for international market. .
The following are the main attractions:
Dual active sim card - this is probably the most notable trademark of Myphone products. Their model names come with the tag "Duo" that signifies its dual sim card capability. Both simcards can be active at the same time, which is like having two phones on one unit. This can be a cure among those people who have contacts on 2 different network providers.
Filipino contents -other models come up with built in Filipino contents making it a more localized product. 
TV Phones - some models are television capable. You can watch from VHF and UHF channels clearly outdoors. But if you're in a nearly closed room you might end up finding a spot to get a clear signal. Just consider why you need to place an antenna…

Myphone QV27 Duo S Phone Review

The Myphone QV27 Duo S Phone is one of the latest from the Myphone array of qwerty mobile phones. At the current price of about 5000 pesos (nearly $US 113.00) here are the key features you will get.

 The Myphone trademark Dual simcard capability FM player with stereo type 2.0 Megapixel camera for still images and video Bluetooth, USB port, MicroSD slot MP3 player Built in apps and games 2.4 inches display screen

Pretty much common features eh? Yes the my phone qv27 has only the basic features you can get for a mobile phone these days with just the catch of having a qwerty keypad and the dual active simcard capability.

The 2.0 megapixel camera is quite low compared to competitors available these days. Well, the 2.0 megapixel camera can produce clear enough images on well lighted place but do not expect it sharp indoors with insufficient lightings. The video neither can produce quality video for same condition.

The memory card is expandable to 8 Gigabytes though, pretty enough for a hand…

How to place Google Analytics to your Blogger

It's been weeks now since i experience trouble on viewing my blogs statistics. I always get this message when i go to the stats tab in my blogger dashboard: "There was an error while fetching stats. Please reload page."
No matter how i reload the page the problem persists. 

So to get an overview of my blogs visitors' statistics, I decided to try to place Google Analytics. I was skeptical as I thought it was going to be complicated, as Blogger's html source is quite different from ordinary HTML document. But I just follow what i usually do to place analytics code on an html document and I was surprised it works pretty well.

So here are the simple steps on how to place Google Analytics to your Blogger blog.
1. If you haven't signed up for a Google Analytics account, sign up here:
2. You will be presented a form like the picture below. Type your blogger url and fill out the other fields.
3. Provide your complete name on the next form.

Wikipedia is Asking for Donations Again

Recently, I noticed that every page I view in wikipedia appears the face of the founder Jimmy Wales asking for donation "again". Yes, I encountered same appeal from him last year. He is asking again for donation this year.

Last year, his message was they are in need of funds to pay for their web servers and other technical stuff. This year's appeal is not more particular where the collected donations would go, rather he says money would make wikipedia ads free as it is.

I wonder how much funds it generated from last year's appeal considering the millions of visitors it has all over the globe. Millions of dollars for sure! These can certainly power wikipedia's web servers for decades. So why ask for donation again this year?

People will eventually get used to this and eventually will just ignore the appeal (or some might get annoyed) if each year wikipedia asks for donations. I think wikipedia should look into other source of funds other than asking for donations…

Recent Facebook Updates

Here are couple of Facebook updates I recently noticed.

First are the new Facebook Groups. The most noticeable feature of these groups is the group chat. Every member of the group can participate in chat now. Its pretty much like a conference on yahoo messenger, live, or skype. Membership requires no invitation unlike the old groups. Existing members can add new members without waiting for confirmation of the invitee.
-They are more personalized compared to the old facebook groups.
-They are for people who have close connections.
-Group chat is a powerful tool

-they do not represent a particular category unlike the old groups where they are categorized
-the chat feature is quite annoing as it pops up everytime there are members chatting

Second of the updates I noticed is the new font in the news feed. The font is slightly reduced though i think its still using the lucida grande, tahoma, arial family (if you are aware about that). I find this benificial to me as i have a qu…

Old but Goodie Nokia 6233

It was way back in 2006 when I bought my Nokia 6233 mobile phone. It was during this time the hype of 3G technology. Everyone was going for 3G phone so I did.

I picked this unit because its the most affordable 3G phone around considering its features. It has 2 megapixels digital camera, capable of both still images and video, bluetooth, infrared, micro SD and the fact that its a bar. Flip and slide phones are not for me.

Of all the features , what astounded me is its high quality stereo speakers couple with its equalizer you'll get high quality sound. Also it supports most music media type like mp3, wma, midi, aac etc.

After four years i still have this phone and surprisingly it still has its main qualities though i experience very slow startup whenever i reboot it. Well bad me I don't erase messages in the inbox. It has about 4k messages I have no time to scan each unimportant message to delete. (Coz I keep old messages, esp those that are special and of important to me).

I t…
