Earning Extra By Simply Blogging About Something You Care About

8 comments

I have been blogging for almost two months now and for that short span of time I have already encountered a lot of money-making sites which of course had caught my interest. Well it's just really great that you are earning or being paid just by simply reviewing and/or writing a buzz or a blog post advocating something that you do care about. But just be cautious enough since most of the time you will encounter those that are considered fake or a scam.

Just the other day, I have come across a certain blogger's post about another blog marketing and advertising site which they call Snapbomb. And I must admit that I am quite hesitant at first about the validity of the post and of how true that the mentioned site really works. But for curiosity's sake and also for me to really know if it's for real, I just then decided to visit Snapbomb... thinking at the same time that why not try it, anyway there's nothing for me to lose since signing up as a blogger is totally free.

Right now, I am getting positive feedback about Snapbomb. And according to a reliable friend who has already earned $200 dollars from it, it really works. So why not try it. Earning a little extra in the side won't hurt. Because who wouldn’t want to earn anyway? Especially during this trying time of economy, everyone should really try to earn. It may not really be that big amount of money but just simply think about this, it is easy and all you have to do is to simply blog about something that interest you.

So why not join and be one of Snapbomb's bloggers. Believe me, it's worth a try! But one thing that I would like to remind you before you join, learn to share your thoughts and opinion.

Interested? Then why not click this link http://www.snapbomb.com/bloggers.html?acp=7551, create your membership and be part of Snapbomb's list of successful bloggers... and yes it`s for free my dear, so there`s really nothing for you to lose.

Goodluck!

Halloween: One of My Strangest Days

1 comment

Halloween (or Hallowe’en) is known to many as one of the international holidays and is celebrated on October 31. But have you ever wonder of what Halloween really is and what is it all about? Have you ever thought about this? Have you ever asked yourself, "Who in the world ever thought of the idea of walking around in weird costumes, trick-or-treating, and/or putting a carved-out pumpkin in your window?"

I don't know if you will agree with me when I say that Halloween is really one of the strangest days in the year for me, is it not? And I really do wonder of how the celebration of such a day ever got started. But be it as it may be.

According to some of the books and articles I have read, its origins date back to a Celtic festival called Samhain (pronounced Sah-ween or Sow-in). The Celts celebrated the beginning of the new year on November 1st. On the last evening of the year, October 31, they believed that the ghosts of the dead returned to the earth. But I am not going to discuss this thing further since I am not a historian anyway. Haha.

Anyway just expect what had always been expected during Halloween holiday... Scary fancy dress, pumpkin cutouts, pumpkin lanterns, trick or treating, bobbing for apples, telling ghost stories, scary movies or videos, famous haunts, jack o lanterns, vampires and superstitions... For halloween can't really be halloween without these things.

And also, please keep in mind that halloween is more than just a scary night. Let's put halloween in perspective... as the day to enjoy and have lot of fun. Instead of making your halloween scary, why not try to make memories with those you love best, at this very day... memories that you will surely remember through the years.

Enjoy your Halloween Holiday, have fun!

Happy Halloween!

Awooooooooooooooohhhhh.......

Is My Blog 'Uber Amazing'?

7 comments

Is my blog uber amazing? Well I guess it is for you to find out since it is you and only you who shall be the judge.


One of the best things about blogging is the spirit of friendship and appreciation. I really do love reading blogs. It inspires me. It makes me smile, laugh and cry. It gives me amazing information. It keeps me up-to-date or updated with several and different latest happenings around the globe. I continue to learn things from it. Just by simply reading blogs I am entertained. And more than anything, it's one of my greatest hobbies.

I have been blogging for almost two months now, and this 1st of November will actually be my 2nd blog monthsary. For this span of time, I am just really glad that there have been a lot of people or bloggers around who have appreciated my blog and my blog's posts.

Just this Monday, October 27, another online blogger and buddy have tagged my blog as one of the 'Uber Amazing' blogs in the blogosphere. And I just really can't believe it... well it's not really that I don't want the award, but I am really just amazed, haha. For my blog to be considered as one of the good blogs around is cool, but for it to be considered as one of the 'uber amazing' is truly amazing!

Thank you so much to Shawie of 'A Grateful Heart' for this overly-amazing award. Thank you so much friend for gracing my blog with inspiring and flattering thoughts of admiration and appreciation. I still can't believe that you considered my blog to be 'uber amazing'. I am currently thinking of what made you decide to choose me for the award. Haha. But again, it is really much appreciated.

Now I'm giving this award to the following bloggers who have shared their talents, joys and journeys to the world-wide-web and most especially to me. The Uber Amazing awardees are:
Again, thank you Shawie for the award. And to those whom I have awarded with this 'uber amazing' award, I am just hoping that you'll continue the blogger spirit in you and continue touching other's lives by your blogs. I promise I will do the same.

My Work & I

2 comments

It's almost two years now since I've joined the company where I am working right now. And it's almost a year now that I've been making or doing calls...

I am really glad I was able to brush off that feeling of bitterness out of my system since I entered this call center industry, and just like what a certain friend have said, I'd rather not elaborate on why this is the case. I'm just glad that I'm not a pessimistic person and that I'm not a constant whiner just like what my other colleagues are. Guess 'twas the best part of why I'm still able to survive the industry and the very reason why I'm still here.

'twas almost two years that I've worked for just one account, and now that I've been transferred to a new account which is really hard, I'm starting to miss it... The script, the call flow, those standard rebuttals, those arguments I've had with my prospects, and everything! I'm just missing everything with my previous account. I'm so used to it that letting go is something that is somehow so unreal. But things really come and go, it's life's nature. Right now, what is best to do is to love what I have... and to love my new account. Who knows, I might love this account even better.

Anyway, everything's okay now. I'm back on track and that zest to perform well during my shifts has resided back in me. I'm more patient now in dealing with every calls I make especially with every potential clients that I get hold on to. I always try not to lose my cool that easily and I actually have to say that I'm very happy with the way things are.

There are a lot of people who have managed to inspire me and of course there are also those who managed to destroy me, and I am just so grateful because they've just helped me to be better. Colleagues who just do their work and never complain, colleagues who have managed to be on top for being so diligent, and supervisors who have been so understanding and supportive are just some of those who have taught me to be positive about things instead of incessantly ranting and complaining.

It's really almost two years now, and I'm just glad I'm still here... surviving what this call center life has to offer me.

Friday`s Random Thoughts

3 comments

Today is such a great day... And I wanna share some of my random thoughts for this very day...
_____

What Am I really afraid of?
  • I am not scared of the dark... I`m scared of what`s IN it.
  • I am not afraid of heights... I`m afraid of FALLING.
  • I am not afraid of the people around me... I`m just afraid of REJECTION.
  • I am not afraid to love... I`m just afraid of not being LOVED BACK.
  • And I am not afraid to try again... I`m just afraid of getting HURT for the SAME reason.
_____

Things you don`t need to know but I`m telling anyway...
  • All shrimps are born female, but turns to male as time goes. So are they like gayish.
  • Starfishes are pretty but they don`t have brains. So don`t be offended once I call you one.
  • Penguins can only have one mate, they spend almost half of their life looking for their destined partner, then spend the rest of it with him/her. How sweet!
_____

Would you like to know if your mobile phone is original or not? Press the following keys on your mobile phone: *#06# and the international mobile equipment ID number will appear. Then check the 7th and 8th number.

If the 7th and 8th digits are:
  • 02 or 20 - it`s from CHINA. Low Quality.
  • 08 or 80 - it`s from GERMANY. Fair Quality.
  • 01 or 10 - it`s from FINLAND. Very Good Quality.
  • 00 - it`s from Original Factory. The Best Quality
  • 13 - it`s from Azerbaijan. Bad Quality and dangerous to your health.
_____

I know and I believe that I can always take good care of myself, but still, I want to meet the person who can prove to me that I can`t...

_____

I like the practical simplicity of this statement: "If people talk negatively about you, then live in such a way that no one will believe them". Watchutink?

_____

A short story that had moved me:

A man and a barber were talking...

Barber: God does not exist. `Coz if there is God, there will be no suffering.

The man did not reply to avoid arguments, then he left the shop.

Outside, the man saw a beggar with long dirty hair.

Then the man went back to the barber shop.

Man: You know, barbers don`t exist.

Barber: [Laughing] Can`t you see I`m a barber?

Man: If a barber exist, there would be no man with dirty long hair.

Barber: It`s just that they don`t come to me.

Then the man said, "Like God, if people will come to him, there will be no suffering."

_____

Again, today is indeed a wonderful day. It`s Friday guys and it`s weekend again! Wow, I`m having my rest day again tomorrow... It`s indeed a very tiring week.

Enjoy and live life to the fullest! God Bless everyone!

How to Deal and Survive Life...

2 comments
"What we are right now are the foundation for what and how we will turn out to be tomorrow. So let`s make sure we`ll turn out great!"

Will the next day turn out to be a great day for me?

I always wonder why I keep on asking myself this question whenever I feel so much pressure coming from all areas of my life. It`s like there`s no place on the planet where I can just kick back, chill and breathe. But maybe it`s because life aren`t just all about fun, happiness and all positive things you could think of. And just like what one of my Philosophy teachers before had told me, there would surely be fun in our lives, but rest assured that it`s not all fun.

In this regard, I came up with some effective ways on how to cope with all the stress and pressures that life continuously brings us...
  • Have Goals. Set your mind on things that you want to achieve. Consider your interests, capabilities, talents and limitations. Have a reasonable time frame too, to keep you working at it. Having deadline or quotas presses you to work harder to reach your dreams. And think of how much fun you`ll have when you reach the top.
  • Dont Stress. When you feel like you`re being pushed way too much, then stop. Take time to breathe and relax. Oh yes, certainly you deserve a break! You`ve been working so much, so it`s just time to pamper yourself.
  • Communicate. Get help! Remember always that you`re not alone in this world. You have your family and friends. And always remember that they love you and that you`re important to them and that they just want what is best for you. It`s also good to get their point of view about certain matters that bother you.
  • Spend Quality Time. Free yourself from everything and find a place where you can be on your own, and clear all the things that stresses or pressures you. Allow more pleasant, less stressful thoughts to flow in. Being in calm, quiet room allows for self-reflection and discovery too... But please keep in mind to negate all negative thoughts. No room for self-pity please!
  • Bond. Have bonding sessions with your family, sibs and friends. These are the times where ties of friendship and love are formed. Make use of your opportunities now because you`ll surely regret taking this time for granted.
Please always keep in mind that it`s you and you alone who would take the lead for yourself. And in the end, whatever you do today shall be the you of tomorrow. So better yet not be affected of all pressures and all the negative things that life offers you today, always be positive and have faith.

Remember that each and every process of life maybe painful or easy as they may come, but it will surely shape and mold you into whatever you want yourself to be...

Enjoy life as it may come...

A 'Friendship Poem' & My Idea of Friendship

3 comments
Below is a 'Friendship Poem' I`ve received from an online blogger and friend Mabel along with the awards she`d given me just this Sunday...

We need Friends for many reasons,
all throughout the season.
We need Friends to comfort us when we are sad,
and to have fun with us when we are glad.
We need Friends to give us good advice.
We need someone we can count on,
and treat us nice.
We need Friends to remember us
once we have passed sharing memories
that will always last.

And in relation to this poem, I`d like to briefly give you some of my idea of 'Friendship'.

To begin with, I`m not even sure if I could really discuss this thing the way I wanted it to be discussed. But one thing is for sure, I want to tell you guys how I value my friends and how important their friendship is to me...

Friends and friendship are actually two different things that are of course related. And for me Friendship is more than just being friends. It is a connection deep within each person that is considered as an undearned gift of love.

When I say we`re friends it doesn`t really necessarily mean that we`re already having that what we call 'true friendship', for true friendship is seen through the heart and not through the eyes. It is being build. It has to be taken cared of. And it is the result of LOVE, SINCERITY, HONESTY, LOYALTY and TRUST.

Also friendship is a blessing... It`s the only everlasting miracle in this world that continue to happen. And the biggest miracle that will surely come or happen into anybody`s life.

As you may notice, people just come and go, but real or true frienship will never vanished.

So in the end, you have to think of your true friends and be grateful for the gifts they bring to your life. Allow your hearts to connect and bring comfort to each other. Expand your world by seeing through their eyes. Give them your love in return for each friend you have is an unearned gift that should be accepted with grace and thankfulness.

To all my friends and to my bestfriends, this brief article is for you guys. I love you so much and I`m so grateful of having you in my life.

It`s A Grateful Sunday!

6 comments

Oh it`s indeed a grateful sunday! There have been a lot of things and changes that had happened to which I am truly grateful of.

As you may notice, I have been like very busy working on some changes with my blogsite since yesterday. Exactly the reason why somehow there have been some difficulties or inconveniences visiting my site since that day. I`ve even posted an announcement for my visitors to know what`s happening, for I am sure they`re wondering. But I am really glad that I am almost done now, and really proud that my hard work paid off. I`m not a 'techie' person, and making it possible for me alone to do the change with my site is indeed a great fulfillment, and for that, again I`m grateful.

Also, since yesterday my statistics showed the big difference in the numbers of my visitors from the day I`ve started blogging [`twas just last month, actually]. And guess what? The number was doubled! Oh yes, you read it right, `twas doubled and I`m so happy about it. But mind you, I`m not bragging here since I know that there`s really no point of bragging at all, and that`s for sure. This is just to let you know how grateful I am for the changes.

I`m also grateful that I have been selected, or my blogsite rather, have been selected for the first campaign of Nuffnang Philippines which is the 'GM Outdoor LB Campaign'. Add the fact that the said campaign will be running for 2 months period. Wow!

Lastly, I`m also grateful to have received some awards from a fellow blogger, and an online friend as well, named Mabel of 'The Power of Three'. Thank you so much friend for gracing my blog with inspiring and flattering thoughts of admiration and appreciation. I am truly grateful for your awards. And I promise to keep my blog updated and to always post quality and interesting posts for you guys to read. Just keep on visiting my blog, okay? Haha.

By the way, here are the awards I`ve received from Mabel and will be added to my 'Collections of Blog Awards':





And as a tradition, I`m passing these awards to the following bloggers who have somehow inspired me in so many ways to do better with my blog:
Truly it is a grateful Sunday... I`m just grateful of everything...

Now, do I need to say more? Haha.

The Biggest Outdoor Gallery In Asia: 'Manila Outdoor Gallery!'

Leave a Comment
What do you get when you give 10 of the most promising Filipino artists billboards across key locations in Metro Manila as their canvass?

2nd Media Communications launches the 'Biggest Outdoor Gallery In Asia'! And it`s the 'Manila Outdoor Gallery'.

Wow! Amazing isn`t it... especially knowing the fact that it would be the biggest here in Asia region. Oh boy, I`m just too proud... of course I`m proud to be a Filipino, but hey hey hey this is really something that makes me more proud than ever.

... So what`s with 'Manila Outdoor Gallery' that makes it the biggest outdoor gallery in Asia anyway? Well just picture it this way... what would you get when you give 10 of the most promising Filipino artists billboards across key locations in Metro Manila as their canvass? Yes, a number of considered art masterpieces not only here in the Philippines but in the whole world by Filipino artists on your way to and from work. Isn`t it amazing? Isn`t it something that you would surely look forward to when you`re about to go to work and about to went home from work?

Anyway, picture North Luzon Expressway, EDSA and South Luzon Expressway as venues for these masterpieces. And now, there won’t be a need to imagine as 2ND MEDIA COMMUNICATIONS liberates art for Filipinos by transforming major Metro Manila thoroughfares into an art trail for the launch of the biggest outdoor gallery in Asia.


Through 2ND MEDIA COMMUNICATIONS, the Manila Outdoor Gallery Route will traverse North Luzon Expressway and EDSA up to South Luzon Expressway to show support for the ongoing movement of saving the environment. Yes, you read it right! It`s not only for our amusement but also for a cause... It`s actually part of the ongoing movement of saving today`s environment, our environment.


And so again, wouldn’t it be cool to see a number of art masterpieces on your way to and from work? and wouldn`t it be nice to know that it`s not only there to amuse us but as a part of the ongoing movement of saving today`s world? I bet it is, and I bet you`ll agree with me! Haha, seems like you don`t have any option dude but just to agree with what I say or with what I write. Haha. But yes, it`s really cool!


You might think that I am being too redundant with the way I write this article, but yes I really am. I admit it and it`s simply because I just couldn`t help myself in 'wow' with this stuff. And again, I am just too proud of it. Wonder whose brilliant idea this is...


I support this stuff, and why not do the same... this is really something that we Filipinos should be proud of!

Happy Friday & Pinay Mommy Online`s Contest

Leave a Comment

Another tiring week is about to end today, and I`m just really glad that it`s rest day again tomorrow! Hurray! LOL.

But before this tiring week end, I`d like to join another blogger`s contest. Oh my, seems like I`m fun of entering different blogger`s contest lately especially this month of October. Anyway, it`s just for fun and who knows, maybe I`ll be one of the lucky winners.

... So what about the contest? Well it`s actually run by Mommy Ruby of Pinay Mommy Online. And yes, the contest is just really as simple as you can think of.

According to Mommy Ruby, she`s going on a vacation to Bacolod and since it will take her an indefinite blogger’s leave, she just thought of making a definite blog contest aside from her upcoming blogversary.

And in order for you to qualify, you simply need to answer two simple questions which are:

“There are two cities in the Philippines that are called the City of Smiles and the City of Golden Friendship. What are the names of these cities?”

My answers:
City of Smiles – Bacolod City
City of Golden Friendship – Cagayan de Oro City


Yes, just as simple as that, and you`re in... but of course you still need to follow other mechanics. But hey, I forget to mention that there`s an important note that you should remember and it states that... ONLY VALID ANSWERS WILL BE ENTITLED TO THE ELECTRONIC RAFFLE VIA RANDOM.ORG. CONTEST WILL END OCTOBER 31, 2008. Hehe.

So just simply visit Mommy Ruby`s contest post for more detailed information of the mechanics or simply click HERE!

Wish me luck, and I`ll wish you luck as well. Hehe. Peace guys!

Happy Friday everyone! Gracias!

Another Global Phenomenon?

2 comments

Around 2:00AM [Philippine Standard Time] when I have received a message which stated:


"Coming October 17, 2008, the sun will rise continously for 36 hours (1.5 days). During this time, the US countries will be dark for 1.5 days. It will convert 3 days into 2 big days. It will happen once in 2,400 years. We're very lucky to see this. This is a global phenomenon... Courtesy of CNN/BBC News..Mark ur calendars now n pass 2 relatives n frends ..."


Again, `twas 2:00AM when I`ve received this weird message and I was like in the state of shock and in big doubt. I`ve even asked myself if the message is a joke. I just really doubt about it`s validity especially that knowing the fact that if it`s truly a global phenomenon then it should be otherwise forecasted and already been in the news for a week now or so. But hey, I`ve never heard of it, never even heard about it on the news... and why all of a sudden come this message which is like 'rushing' just to let us all know about it. It`s really just so weird, isn`t it? So if you`re just witty enough then you`d surely doubt it.

And hey, to give further credence to the text, supposed source were CNN and BBC News! Uh~uh, how clever!

`twas really a 'ridiculous notion' and you may consider this totally a fiction. I guess the man behind this is really so damn happy right now knowing that his 'work' continously spreads around the metro and reaching almost everybody in this whole wide world. I salute him for that, he`s definitely the man! Yea boy, you`re the man! Haha.

Yet another fact is that, here in the Philippines, the transfer of the message from one sender to another translated into added revenues for the country's different telecommunication companies. I wonder if they`re part of this, but need to immediately disclose the idea since I don`t wanna have trouble here. LOL.

I have actually search the web for further details or any information about this, and I`ve even search this from those supposed sources of the news, but what I`ve got is nothing. Nothing! Yea, you read it right... completely nothing. So if it`s really a phenomenon, then how come that `twas not even reported on the news the way `twas stated on the message.

It`s so clear that there is really no such "rising sun" phenomenon that would come this Friday. It`s false and considered to be purely fiction. Yet at the rate the rumor has spread from India, to the Bahamas, from all over the US to the Philippines, and from here to the world, the rumor itself was what has seemingly become the real global phenomenon.

Yea, `twas just a joke afterall! Such a waste of time!

NOT SURE OF YOUR ANSWER? THEN WHY NOT CHECK IT AGAIN...

NOW TELL ME WHAT YOU SEE? IS SHE TURNING CLOCKWISE OR COUNTER-CLOCKWISE?

-----

This is just one of the many random test I`ve found on the web. I`ve actually found this test while doing my usual routine yesterday which is to read and check some of my favorite blogs. And lucky that `twas posted by Franceska Ike an online blogger friend so I just then decided to ask her permission to post the same thing here on my blog. Let`s say I just wanna know how my visitors, viewers or readers would react or would answer this test... Yes, I`m just too excited to know what would be the outcome of this test to you guys.

Anyway, the test works this way...

If you see this lady turning clockwise you are using your right brain.
If you see her turning counter-clockwise, you are using your left brain.

Most of us would see the dancer turning counter-clockwise though you can try to focus and change the direction; see if you can do it.

If you can make her go one way and then the other at will without shifting your gaze, your IQ is above 160 … which is almost at genius level!

Above are just five reviews of the many reviews I have been receiving lately from several of my readers, viewers, visitors, or what ever you may call them. And hey, I just want to emphasize or clarify that I have not edited any of the above reviews, not even a single word.

Now why am I posting these stuffs?

This past few days life has really been so challenging to me especially when it comes to my health. But it`s nothing really serious, just thought that I`m getting prone to sickness recently and maybe it`s because of stress, too much work, and a little time for myself. But I am just happy that somehow, despite of all these facts, I still have so many great things to be thankful of... and that somehow, there are still people who appreciate me and my works.

To all my visitors especially to those who have left me a review or any certain comment or message, I am really so thankful to all of you guys. You just don`t know how happy I am and how I appreciate it whenever you take your time just to drop me a line... And exactly the reason why I am returning the favor, I mean, that even it`s a fact that I am sick, I am still blogging, I still update my blog regularly, and I still write a post each day.

It`s actually just last September of this year when I`ve decided to start blogging. And I am glad that I have gained more friends, readers, viewers and visitors as days go by. I`m actually surprised to have noticed the continuous growth with my statistics. But of course I won`t elaborate much about it, and I don`t even want to brag about it. Fact is, I am just really so happy that there are people who have noticed my blog.

For those who may not know it, I am actually still considered a newbie in this world of blogging. I don`t really consider myself a PRO but rather just a newbie who`s just starting to know and learn more about this world and trying to understand the so-many-know-how of the blogosphere. I should say that there are really still a lot of doors for improvement. And I am really glad that I continue to learn more things each day.

Credits should be given to my mentors who are great bloggers who have really inspired me to do better with my blog. I wish I could also be a PRO someday just like them. Anyway, rest assured that I will continue this passion for blogging!

Amazing Pinhole Glasses!

2 comments
More and more people from every walks of life uses eyeglasses nowadays. And just recently I`ve discovered that it`s because of what they call 'computer vision syndrome' or the too much exposure to computer radiation.

And just recently I`ve also found out an effective eyeglasses that is really worth your money and budget, and it`s the Pinhole Glasses. And I won`t speak more for myself since I`m not yet an eyeglass-user [but for sure I`ll be one sooner or later], but surely I`ll speak more based on what a certain close friend had experienced.

When the 'red eye' hit my friend again [just recently] for the nth time this year, we`ve just then decided that it`s really time for her to change her eyeglasses. But given the fact that we`re aware of how expensive it is to have one, plus the fact that she`s too tired of constantly changing her prescription eyeglasses because of the very fact that she still needs her eyes to be checked first before she`ll have one, an idea of online shopping comes to our mind. But I`m afraid that picking out a new eyeglasses can be daunting, whether you`re getting your very first pair or you`ve worn them nearly all your life. It`s not only because there are many different shapes and colors in eyeglass frames, but because of the advances in our technology today.

But hey, we did find Pinhole Eyeglasses! And yes, you can wear it without prescription! I believe we`re just really too lucky to have searched for an eyeglasses that fits my friends requirement. Haha. It`s just far beyond other eyeglasses especially those that are commonly prescribed and worn which you may not know has actually negative side-effects on your eyes.

Furthermore, Pinhole Glasses are more of good quality, durable, completely natural, effective and user-friendly. It saves not just my friend`s trouble and time, but as well as the money she would otherwise spend on changing her eyeglasses every now and then. And with the price lower than what you expect a reliable eyeglasses would cost, this is already the one that is best for my friend and we consider it one of her 'best buys' this year. Add the fact that it is thus 'satisfaction guaranteed!'.

For more information about this wonderful stuffs created to ease eyeglass-user`s burden you may visit Pinhole Glasses website at http://www.pinhole-glasses-direct.com. And be as satisfied, happy and pleased as my friend.

Future Computer, PC or Laptop?

2 comments
While I`m doing one of my favorite hobbies which is to search, surf, browse and read friend`s and other`s blog, I`ve come to encounter a certain post or article that had surely caught my interest again. Yes my dear, there are a lot of stuffs that interest me, and new and advanced technologies are just one of them.


Just like the author of the certain article, I was not taken aback too when I have seen this pen-sized PC, I mean I am not surprised after all since I and my friends in college have thought of this one before. But honestly, it still amazes me. We know for sure how technology works nowadays, and I surely won`t be surprised anymore once another advanced technology will be introduced in the market for I am certain that technology is always on the move! But then again, technology still amazes me.

But could this really be the future of Computer/PC/Laptop? My answer could be YES, it is POSSIBLE since I always believe that in a human`s mind, the possibility is really endless.

As of this writing, I am not just sure about the current status of this stuff but certainly this could one day become feasible when technology is ripe and upon the revolution of future computers. I`m not just certain though if when would that be or if I would still be here when these stuffs come to its existence and reality.

Truly this is something for us to look forward to, but for now just enjoy looking at the images and try to imagine how could and how comfortable this gadgets might give us in the future. Just hope that the realization of these stuffs would be very soon. LOL!
