Korea with 1Gbps by 2012

yup, you read it right! interesting news ey and will surely blow you out of your mind!

korea communications commission has alotted $24 billion to secure a 1Gbps access by 2012! it is part of giving Korean IT infrastructure a boost as well as to create around 120,000 jobs.

for the IT PINOYs who weren't listening well in their data structure classes in college, 1Gbps means 1 billion bytes per second.

okay, still didn't get it? since IT PINOYs love downloading movies via torrent, i'll make it easier for you guys - it will only take you to download a 2-hour-movie in 12 seconds. that's 5 movies in 1 minute!!!! 300 movies in an hour!!!!

  1. And we're still gonna be stuck with the typical 1Mbps to 2Mbps here in the Philippines. Sky Broadband offers up to 12Mbps of bandwidth but then there is still no guarantee or that you will reach that maximum.

    And although 12Mbps is available here, it is extremely expensive at P6,000/month. I would say it would be worth that price when reviews come pouring in that it indeed is able to maximize at least 80% of the connection bandwidth advertised.

the facebook breakup letter

dear facebook,

today marks our 10th year together, i must say it has been a sweet journey. unfortunately, time has come for me to walk away.

i had high hopes for us when we started, especially at the time when my heart still beat for… what was her name again? ahh friendster (may she rest in peace). but you were all smile and poised, a neatly uniformed college girl full of hopes and overflowing with excitement. you had me at one poke!

through you i bravely opened up my thoughts to the world. i was able to connect with old and new friends. you bridged time, the longitudes and the latitudes. i got found and new relatives were discovered. once a year you even make me famous sending out birthday reminders. with you, i was a kid in a playground, swiping up or down till the wee hours, unconditionally tagging anyone and gleefully enjoying your games.

know that i am glad to have witnessed you grow - your fun emojis, crazy virals, and live videos i will sorely miss. oh i always thought it’s cool…

Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg Faces Congress

Facebook CEO, Mark Zuckerberg faced the senate judiciary and commerce committees today, in light of the recent data breach impacting over 87 million of its users.  
on march-21 addressing the cambridge analytica situation, "We have a responsibility to protect your data, and if we can't then we don't deserve to serve you. I've been working to understand exactly what happened and how to make sure this doesn't happen again. The good news is that the most important actions to prevent this from happening again today we have already taken years ago. But we also made mistakes, there's more to do, and we need to step up and do it," mark posted. 

here's a background of events;

as early as 2007 facebook envisioned that apps should be "social" enabling people to log into apps and share who their friends were and some of their information (birthdays, where they live, photos).  in 2013, a cambridge university researcher named aleksandr kogan created a perso…

PINOY OFWs Beware of New E-Mail Scam

an email scam has been recently reported targeting the PINOY Overseas Contract Workers (OFWs). 

the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) advised everyone to ignore emails telling them they have qualified and may apply as a nurse or caregiver at the Canadian Virtual Hospice in Winnipeg, Canada.  

the said email further added that applying for the job does not have hidden charges and that the employer will shoulder the airfare, work permit fee, and working visa (sounds interesting huh?). now the catch... the candidate is told to pay at a designated Western Union and/or LBC account, for the coaching and medical exam fees and to reserve a slot at the embassy for the coaching seminar. 

its unnerving how some take advantage of people who are just trying to earn a better and honest living.  please share this, be aware.
