The set of new Philippine Peso bills will be officially released to the public next year 2011. But luckily I just got mine from someone working in Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas. Don't worry nothing illegal happened, they just have the privilege to own first since they work there.


Which Lenovo IdeaPad Laptop Are You?

dnimitz Friday, December 17, 2010 , , ,
Would it be fun to compare your self with a laptop? I guess the answer is yes, as long as it's a Lenovo laptop! I would say I'm like a Lenovo IdeaPad Y560. It's a combination of computing power, affordability, and durability. If I'm to gauge the price to performance ratio of Ideapad Y560 then it would be a perfect 10. Wait, since I'm comparing Y560 to myself then does that mean my price to performance ratio is also a perfect 10? Hmmm... Let me clear that, it means that I'm a balanced type of person in every aspect. :)

Here's their approximate file size Miro (37.8MB), Vuze (8MB), and BitComet (7.6MB). If you are looking for a plain torrent client that's light, efficient, and easy to use, then try uTorrent.

So I've decided to do some research about APad's specifications and compared it to Apple's IPad. I'll be using APad E8001 model for this comparison and IPad Wi-Fi model.

Let's take this example as an analogy, I need to read books  in the library about electronics. But after going to the bookshelf where electronics books are located I've found out that some books are missing. Since I really

GOM Player - Free Media Player

dnimitz Tuesday, December 7, 2010 , ,
GOM Player is an all-in-one free media player which I've been using for a couple of years now and it's been a very useful software. The best thing about GOM Player is that I don't need to download a separate media player for playing file types like XviD, AC3, OGG, H263, FLV1, DivX, MP4, etc. anymore because GOM Player supports almost every common codec that we use today.

But just in case that you need a codec not currently supported by GOM Player then the Codec Finder feature
