Samsung launches its A Series smartphones

Valkyrie, a swanky new nightclub nestled in the still-to-be-fully-developed Uptown Parade section of Bonifacio Global City, was the scene of the launch recently of Samsung's A series of smartphones -- the A3, A5 and A7 smartphones.

This is the perfect kind of phone for me - the A7 - big screen but light & still easy to hold

Smart Stores transform the Smart subscriber's experience

I'm happy that Smart is making the smart move to make store visits a more pleasant experience. They are now transforming their Smart Stores from traditional telco hubs to one where they can support their subscribers' digital lifestyles.

Visits to telco service centers have not always been something I'd look forward to. Going into one meant getting a number and simply killing time waiting for the monitor to call up your number to a counter so you could be assisted. I found the waiting a waste of time. When I really had to go to one, I'd make sure to bring something to read to while away the time. Still, I always somehow wished that the telco centers were a bit more inviting. Well, now it is.

Papal Apps for Pope Francis' Philippine Visit (Jan. 15-19, 2015)

He's almost here! In a few days, we will be welcoming Pope Francis on his first papal visit to the Philippines, Jan. 15-19, 2015.

The last time a Pope visited the country was in 1995, with Pope John Paul II. At that time, the internet was just newly born and definitely, no social media yet. But since the time of Pope Benedict XVI to now, the papal Twitter account @Pontifex has transformed the papacy into one that definitely lives in the digital age and on social media.

So how does the text capital of the world and a social media-intensive country that sees over 90% of its netizens on Facebook greet Pope Francis? With papal apps, of course!
