Not too long ago, Globe telecom overtook Smart as the largest telco operator in the Philippines, as reported by MobileWorld Live. Globe crept its way to the top position and finished last year with 66.6M subscribers versus its long-term competitor, Smart with 62.1M subscribers. Globe’s win in 2016 was eventually “shrugged off” by PLDT, Smart’s parent company. In a report by Inquirer on January 13, 2017, MVP said, “It’s not as important as before. What is important is to take a look at the total telco revenue.” Tides have definitely turned 6 months later. According to GSMA Intelligence Report, as posted by MobileWorld Live, “Globe’s mobile subscriber base fell 3 per cent year-on-year to 59.7 million, giving it a 48 per cent share at end-June. Rival Smart, the mobile unit of PLDT, moved back into the top spot with a 51 per cent share, according to GSMA Intelligence.” The drop,…

“Once you’re connected, you’re connected, and you don’t want to look back.” Peter Bithos, Globe Senior Adviser for Consumer Business. In an article in the New York Times published on August 20, 2013, it is said that Facebook aims to cut the cost of basic internet services on mobile phone phones, particularly in developing countries like the Philippines. Internet.org, a coalition which aims to provide access to everyone, together with tech giants like Samsung, Nokia, Qualcomm, and Ericsson, will also be working together as partners of this kind of initiative. In order to accomplish their goals, these companies try to simplify their phone applications and improve the components of phones and networks. With these kinds of strategy, applications will run more efficiently and will transmit more data while using less power. In relation to this project, Google launched their Free Zone last year in some developing countries. This Free Zone…

Tomorrow is a special day for us dads and before anything else I would like to greet all fathers like me out there a Happy Father’s Day! Most small problems are becoming big because of communication problems. The absence of communication is the most common cause of broken relationships. As a father, I should understand the value of communications and it’s importance in strengthening the relationship. Just like Globe Telecom, they understand the value of connections and it seeks to bridge relationship gaps, to nurture and  strengthen bonds in order to make great things possible. In celebration of father’s Day, here is a short video from Globe which I featured in my previous article Globe Real Stories: Daddy’s Girl. It is a true-to-life video about a father and daughter who were reconnected by simply communicating. We will see how the power of communication bridges relationship gaps.

41711344 10155988194573337 3113579199126831104 o - We are going to Tokyo Game Show 2018

Witness this year’s biggest gaming convention in Asia, the Tokyo Game Show 2018. This September 19, our team will fly to Tokyo, Japan, to be part to TGS 2018. Special thanks to our brand partners Huawei Mobile, PLDT Home, Smart Communications and Cherry Mobile for making this coverage possible.

If the line on the demo is any indication, Biohazard RE: 2 is one of the most popular games in TGS 2018. It’s one of those games that, regardless of the time of day, the queue to the booth just won’t go shorter than 60 minutes. We decided to hold off trying our luck on the demo, maybe tomorrow’s line would be shorter. Demo or no demo, it’s still worth mentioning that the game, even in pictures is just a sight to behold. CAPCOM gave us access to screenshots of the game, and my goodness, what a fresh  coat of paint the game has over the 1998 Playstation and Nintendo 64 classic. Check them out and drool. And, this just in, here’s the story trailer. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TuAM-b7m3iw
