You might have heard that Netflix is streaming to almost every part of the world, including the Philippines. And now that the world’s most popular subscription video-on-demand service is available locally, the question that’s in the air is, assuming the 30-day trial period has ended, is it worth paying the monthly premium for unlimited streaming?
Here’s yet another reason to pull the plug on local cable services: Netflix, the world’s biggest subscription video-on-demand streaming service with over 70 million subscribers worldwide, switched on the green light for 130 additional countries, including the Philippines, the company announced today at CES 2016.

The upcoming Samsung Galaxy S7 will reportedly be announced in February of next year, ahead of the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, so it’s not surprising to see cases of the said flagship smartphone leaked into the wild before its official unveiling.
Starmobile today unveiled the newest addition to its Engage tablet lineup, the Starmobile Engage 7i.

Dell had proved its mettle in the PC business and has been one of the most enduring brands in the industry.

It seems like you can’t go anywhere these days without seeing anything about Star Wars, arguably the most beloved movie franchise on the planet, especially now that we’re at peak Star Wars: The Force Awakens season and only a few days removed from seeing Episode 7 hit local theaters. And in case you haven’t gotten your Star Wars fix yet, Globe Telecom has put together the country’s largest Star Wars fair at the Bonifacio Global City in Taguig.
Running short on battery life when least expected is a popular concern of notebook owners, and for good reason: external battery packs for laptops are hard to find, and there aren’t as many for sale. You’d be hard-pressed to find one from a big manufacturer, let alone something that’s fully compatible with your machine. Dell is aware of these challenges, and hence the company’s first venture into the world of portable power.
There’s no denying that smartphones have made our lives so much easier, and not just because they have put Google and Facebook at our fingertips, along with a seemingly endless array of viral pet videos that suck away an inordinate amount of our free time.

Bazaars are now a fixture during the holiday season, but fulfilling your gift-buying duties in places where the finds are most often cheaper than goods being sold in malls, not to mention unique, can be a hassle these days.
