iPhone 5S Release … why you mad at Apple?

Okay, so Apple announced two new “5” models that didn’t really add anything substantial… so what’s new? Haven’t you been paying attention to ANY of the iPhone announcements since iPhone 4?

  1. If you already have an iPhone 5, you don’t have to buy the new 5S, unless you’re dumb… and rich…
  2. If you have an iPhone 4 or 4S, the iPhone 5S is a substantial upgrade… and your two-year contract should already be done, unless you bought it cheap this year… in which case you don’t have a right to complain…
  3. If you still have a 3GS or – god forbid – the original iPhone, then for the love of all that is good and holy, grab the new iPhone 5S now! And sell your cassette tapes!
  4. If you have an Android, Windows Phone, Blackberry or some other non-iPhone device, I don’t see why you’re complaining… if you love your phone and think it’s the best thing since God talked to Moses, I don’t see why you’re so insecure about an inferior phone ;)
  5. If you still have a non-smart phone like a Nokia, Sony Ericsson or a Motorola Dynatac, then… well… u dnt hv 2 b sry u stl rck!

WordPress app for the iPhone

So I found this nifty little app that allows me to post to my weblog using my iPhone. Looks like a decent app, even though it has a tendency to crash. But I guess nothing’s perfect, eh?

Anyway, this means I can now post my disturbing thoughts anywhere, which is pretty convenient for me. Many times I had some nasty little things between my ears that I wanted to share, but they always had a tendency to fizzle by the time I get home and sit in front of my computer. Not anymore :)

I’m just on my way back from the bank right now… Hmm… banks… I got a shitload to say about banks, but I guess I’ll save that for a later posting…

So, does the app work? Well, I’m posting this entry from my iPhone right now, so if you can see this, you got your answer…


Bloggers Busted by Courts

Interesting little article… got it from the usual “spam” I get from LegalZoom, but this one bears some reading, especially in my profession right now…

Sony adds Netflix Streaming to the Playstation 3

Well, it’s about damn time, Netflix…  I hope it’s better and smoother than the PlayOn app I am using right now to stream Netflix on my PS3.  I guess we’ll find out in a few weeks… below are the details, shamelessly lifted from HighDef Digest:

I got featured on the Sunday Inquirer Magazine!

Wow, when my friend told me she was doing an article on bloggers, I thought she was compiling a list of responses from bloggers she interviewed… I had no idea that it was gonna end up as an article about myself as a blogger, haha… not that I mind, it’s actually a pleasant surprise :P

For those who didn’t get or don’t have access to last weekend’s Sunday Inquirer, here’s the link to the online version:

Update (07/10/11): Well, the link DID get nuked, but I managed to find an updated address for it:

And just in case the article gets nuked in the future, I’m posting the entire content here:

StarCraft 2 Announced!

If you’re a gamer like me, then this is probably the biggest news you’ll hear this year… Finally, a sequel to one of my fave RTS games of all time, Starcraft.

Blizzard Entertainment announced this sequel just now, although they’ve been hinting at it for almost a year. And the game’s slated to come out in 2008 – almost ten years after the original Starcraft was unveiled. Wow, that’s a long time to wait for a sequel, man ;)

Just saw the cinematic trailer for Starcraft 2… kinda boring but it somewhat picks up near the end when they showed that montage before the marine says “Hell, it’s about time!”

Apt words, indeed. Can’t wait to get my gnarled, quivering hands on a copy of the game, bub…

The screenshots look sweet:

If you wanna see the cinematic, you can also download it from there:

(I would’ve uploaded it here on Multiply but the video player doesn’t know how to handle widescreen videos… kinda looks like those old chinese movies where they try to fit a widescreen film into a 4:3 ratio TV… )

Anyway, more details at


Southpark, World of Warcraft, and the return of a bad habit…

Random shit that I think about as I sit here at the office waiting for something to happen…

I would have to say that this recent episode of Southpark’s 10th season was one of the best and funniest episodes I’ve ever watched… well, not mainly coz of the sick humor, but rather due to the subject matter they tackled – which was the wildly popular MMORPG World of Warcraft.

The cobwebs seem alive… with the sound of music?

Man, it’s been a long time since I’ve done something with this place. The virtual cobwebs are almost alive in here. But so far, the move back here is going along smoothly, but there’s a lot of work that still needs to be done.

It’s ironic that, even though I can do an extreme exercise in elaborate site layouts, I choose a minimalist approach. This theme was called Hemmingway, and it really suits my simple and straightforward approach to weblogging right now.

The weblog software I’m using right now is WordPress. I debated for some time whether I would continue using Moveable Type (which was the weblog script I’ve been using for a long time, and one that was compatible with the Friendster blogs’ Typepad service), or try to use new weblog script that was “supposed” to be better. But after a good deal of googling and research, I decided on going with the latter.

The hour of the wolf is close at hand…

Don’t you just love these melodramatic, angsty, brooding and pseudo-mysterious appellations that pretentious webloggers like me splatter over their latest post for the day?

But in a way of speaking, the title is apt.

As very few of you know, my Friendster blog “began” a year ago, September 4th to be exact.  It had a dinky name called “Tatak Tolitz” for about two weeks or so, before I changed it to its current name…   But if you notice, I have posts that go as way back as 2002… which would be impossible since I just started the blog at Friendster last year, right?
