1 kilo pork

2 large potatoes

4 medium sized onions

Lots of garlic

Half bottle of Silver swan soy sauce

Half cup of vinegar

Half liter of drinking water

Cut pork and potatoes into bite size chunks. Mix everything in a large frying pan. Let it boil and simmer until pork is tender and the kitchen is filled with hunger inducing aroma. Hopefully everything was mixed just right. Marvel at finally demystifying one of the best kept secret of modern day Filipino takosas.

Testing the company PLDT WeROAM account for our mobile executive. Feels just like dialup. According to some forums Globe's similar service seems to be better.

The SIM does work when you put it to another phone with bluetooth and use it as a wireless GPRS modem. Works great with the treo after fiddling a bit with the weroam apn and corresponding settings. Too bad you can't make phonecalls or recieve text with this SIM.

Waiting in vain that this type of data service could be offered for P500 a month or less...

Roaming charges: Can you base my location now?

Another stab at the enevitable copulation of the web and the nextgen GPS enabled cellphone.

Location-based software has held concepts of safety and privacy in counterbalance since its inception. and other Web 2.0 contenders are now entering a third concept into the mix: social convenience, fueled by technology.

LBS integration to web pop culture hits like Flickr is not so farfetched. The basic computer bundled with GPS can open posibilities like DNS traversal based on your geographic location. The mighty Google would likely consider giving you search results in relevance to where you are located.

Exciting? Scary? Kalokohan?
