Firefly Mobile Inspire Tablet Review

I was asked to do a review of a tablet to be used by a certain office, so I got my hands on a demo unit of a Firefly Mobile Inspire. Unboxing Upon receiving the unit, I immediately inspected what the box has to say for the unit.

The CM phone was a cute one, small indeed, hence the name Cherry Mobile Cutie. It really was a cutie phone about the size of a pocket MP3 player. I was about to ask the attendant on … Continue reading

Though the title may seem a bit generic and too plain for an article, I’ll be focusing on listing the cheapest Android phones in the Philippine market as of this writing and try to sort them subjectively from not so decent to very decent. And take note, I won’t tackle on the generic China phones that we always see on sidewalk bazaars.

A new girl will soon be conquering the YouTube bandwidth! Watch out for the début of this promising new guitarist, MIYU, all cute on the outside, rocking hard on the inside. Unlike musicians of her generation, she’s not Taylor Swift nor Miley Cyrus whose knowledge of music spans 5 chords. And yes, you won’t see any of those annoying screaming fan girls around her. As I was browsing YouTube a couple of weeks ago searching for Takayoshi Ohmura videos, I accidentally stumbled one of her videos doing cover songs, mainly from Western artists. After the tedious process of verifying the … Continue reading
