GCash American Express Virtual Card: GCash Levels Up!

I have been using GCash ever since Globe Telecom introduced the service to the public, but never found it too useful at that time. Well, aside from being one of the first services to offer money transfer via mobile (I’m tempted to call it mobile banking but it’s not a bank account), which is cool at that time BTW, there were tons of fees for every transaction, including the┬átransaction fee deducted from your load. But the real strength of GCash was the ability to send money anytime, anywhere, that’s why it was a hit on most Philippine online stores, even … Continue reading

Sorry for the Long Hiatus

Hi, for those who may be reading some of my posts and wondering why it hasn’t been updated in months, it was because I don’t have a PC/laptop to use anymore. Although I use my mobile devices to surf the net, I just can’t bear to write posts using the keyboard of my Samsung Galaxy Y nor my 7″ Android tablets.

Last month, I was searching for Google Adsense alternatives to complement my Adsense earnings and decided to try Chitika. The feature that convinced me to try it is that it pays publishers via PayPal, which Google doesn’t, plus the minimum PayPal payout is $10, which in my opinion is the deal-maker for Chitika. Google’s minimum payout is $100 via check or Western Union, and for small businesses and personal blogs which rarely get decent page views per day, would take years before I can get my first payout.┬áSigning up for Chitika was a breeze, although you have to wait before … Continue reading

How Web Browsers Work

I found an interesting read earlier today as I was browsing my Twitter account. As I was feeling geeky today, I checked out a tweet from @ChromiumDev about how browsers work. As a web developer, I am always puzzled about how different browsers render different pages differently, which always makes my work a pain in the @ss. The article is a bit technical, which in my opinion, can only be fully understood if you have at least a bachelor’s degree in a computer-related course. Originally researched and written by Tali Garsiel, here’s a link on the detailed and informative article. How … Continue reading
