This graphic was created by information designer Anna Vital, read herfull article here.
Step by Step: How Elon Musk Built His Empire (by Anna Vital)“The next Bill Gates will not build an operating system. The next Larry Page or Sergey Brin won’t make a search engine. Tomorrow’s champions will not win by competing ruthlessly in today’s marketplace. They will escape competition altogether, because their businesses will be unique.”– Peter Thiel in “Zero to One” In the bookZero to One, prominent entrepreneur and investor Peter Thiel shares his vision on what it takes to create an extraordinary company. Specifically, Thiel believes that instead of making incremental upgrades to an existing product or service, a company must aim to do something completely new to avoid ruthless competition. While Thiel has worked with many impressive people over the years, Thiel points to Elon Musk as a particularlysuccessful memberof the Paypal Mafia that has gone “zero to one” many times.

Happy New Year! (Warning -- Gruesome Photo Included)

Image
The New Year is coming and we all know what that means. Firecrackers! Yes, it's that time of year again when people go all stupid and light up bombs all over town and polluting the city with paper, smoke and trying to kill each other.

Magandang Gabi Bayan with Noli De Castro used to air an episode every year about people getting injured when playing with firecrackers. I remember the sale of firecrackers went down every year because of that show until the show stopped when Noli De Castro became a senator.

I hope you all have a safe and Happy New Year and avoid ending up like this guy.

Cars 2 was a critical miss for Pixar. But it is still the most reliable maker of great films. Hopefully this movie will bring it back to form.

Brave is a grand adventure full of heart, memorable characters and signature Pixar humour. It uncovers a new tale in the mysterious Highlands of Scotland where the impetuous Merida defies an age-old custom and inadvertently unleashes chaos, forcing her to discover the meaning of true bravery before it's too late.

Relief drive: Poor show again they’re quick to give than rich

Even before Ateneo de Manila University officially launched its own relief drive on Monday for the victims and survivors of Tropical Storm “Sendong,” one of its security guards had already come forward, carrying a small bag containing two tins of canned goods, instant noodles and some rice.

“He said it was the (Christmas) gift he got from his office and that he was giving it to the relief drive,” said Harvey Keh, a program director at the Ateneo School of Government.

Organizers didn’t have to wait long for warm bodies to man the processing area, Keh also noted. Two Ateneo scholars, who come from low-income families, immediately volunteered to help.

“You can see that poverty is not something that paralyzes people. The response has been tremendous,” said Keh, also a convenor of Kaya Natin!, an advocacy group for good governance which partnered with Ateneo for the relief drive.

Keh’s observations seem to validate a 2006 study which showed that Filipinos, Christmastime or not, are indeed …

Chief Justice Renato Corona fights back vs President Benigno Aquino

Chief Justice fights back, won't give up post

Image
By Edu Punay (The Philippine Star) Updated December 13, 2011 12:00 AM

MANILA, Philippines - Hours before the House of Representatives voted to impeach him yesterday, Chief Justice Renato Corona rallied the judiciary and his supporters to "remain ready and vigilant" against what he called a "scheme that will destroy democracy."

The first chief justice to be impeached broke his silence a week after getting a public tongue lashing from President Aquino, who accused him of undermining the integrity of the judiciary with his alleged partiality toward former President and now Pampanga Rep. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo.

Critics consider Corona a midnight appointee because he assumed the post when Reynato Puno retired on May 17, a week after the 2010 elections. But the Supreme Court (SC) upheld Corona's appointment.

"I want all of you to know that your chief justice continues to be in command and will lead the fight against any and all who dare to destroy the court and…

Miriam Santiago wins ICC seat

Feisty Philippine Senator Miriam Defensor Santiago has "overwhelmingly" won a seat in the highly powerful International Criminal Court, according to the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) Tuesday.

DFA said Santiago is the first woman from an Asian developing state to join as a judge in the Netherlands-based international court.

ICC is an "independent, permanent court that tries persons accused of the most serious crimes of international concern, namely genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes," according to the court's website.

Santiago reportedly topped the poll's first round, effectively gaining a seat with 79 votes out of 104 valid votes, which DFA said was "an indication of the strong support from States Parties."

DFA noted that to be elected, candidates must receive two-thirds majority of the total number of votes cast, mostly States Parties voting.

"She was the first to be elected out of 18 candidates vying for six seats on the…

Ultimate Ears 350vi Review

Image
Update: As of September 2013, my Ultimate Ears 350vi started losing volume on the right earphone. The mic which was attached to the right earphone works fine so there was no problem with phone calls. But it was annoying to only hear sounds on the left earphone.

About in early 2013, the silicon tips on the earphone started falling off. As good as the UE 350vi are, the silicon tips don't hold on the earphones very well after a year. My Shure E2C tips holds very well even after 4 years. But the UE350vi tips falls off when I just brush them on my jacket.

I finally stopped using my Ultimate Ears 350vi when I dropped one of the tips in the sewer when I took them out of the jacket to use.

To be fair, these earphones lasted longer than my Sennheiser MM50i. The left ear still works fine, but you can really only use it as an earphone by then. If the silicon tips were designed better, they would stay on the earphones better.

Would I buy Ultimate Ears again? Perhaps, they are still one of the…

There are many professional competition held in many countries around the world and promoters of fitness competitions have been trying to change peoples’ perception of pole dance and to promote it as a legitimate form of dance and acrobatics.

Chorus:

Last Christmas, I gave you my heart
But the very next day, You gave it away
This year, to save me from tears
I'll give it to someone special

Last Christmas, I gave you my heart
But the very next day, You gave it away
This year, to save me from tears
I'll give it to someone special

Once bitten and twice shy
I keep my distance but you still catch my eye
Tell me baby do you recognise me?
Well it's been a year, it doesn't surprise me

(Happy Christmas!) I wrapped it up and sent it
With a note saying "I Love You" I meant it
Now I know what a fool I've been
But if you kissed me now I know you'd fool …

President Aquino Criticizes The Supreme Court In Front of Chief Justice Corona

President Noynoy Aquino lambasted the Supreme Court led by Chief Justice Renato Corona in a nationally televised public forum at the First National Criminal Justice Summit hosted by the Department of Justice at the Manila Hotel.


Mr. Aquino lectured Corona in his speech, telling him that the Supreme Court is accountable to the people and saying its power emanated from them.

“We have no plan to step on its rights or humiliate the credibility of anyone. But we have to go back to the main principle of our democracy. Those of us who took an oath to serve only owe it to one: you who are our boss, the Filipino people,” the President said.

“Now there is one public servant who owes a debt of gratitude not to the people who should be the source of our power, but to a patron who squeezed him into the position, will we rely on him to look at the interest of the people?” he added.

When asked for a reaction after President Aquino's speech criticizing the high court, Corona said, "Magpapask…

TouchFire: The Screen-Top Keyboard for iPad

This is an interesting design project called the TouchFire.

From the website.

TouchFire puts the "touch" back into typing on an iPad. You can now feel where the keys are and rest your fingers on the home row, so you can type as fast and accurately as you can on a laptop. You can even type without looking at the screen. TouchFire cushions your fingers as you type, something both touch-typists and two-finger typists really appreciate. Typing on an iPad is no longer a pain!

TouchFire is ultra-thin and weighs less than an ounce. It attaches to the inside of the iPad cover and folds with the cover, so you can always keep TouchFire with your iPad without it getting in the way.

More showbiz controversies. This time it's Mo Twister who's real name is Mohan Gumatay and Rhian Ramos.
This video was supposedly leaked. This video was allegedly taped in a room of a posh hotel in Singapore on July 28, 2010, Gumatay is making a tearful confession about an abortion that actress Rhian Ramos, then his girlfriend, is going to have in an undisclosed location in the city state.


In his Twitter post, Mo Twister denied he was the one who leaked the video. He said, he "sold many of my things including computers that I had erased. Apparently, someone ‘repaired’ the erased files/hard drive and uploaded some personal files of mine. I feel terrible about it.”

He also apologized on his post saying “One thing is clear, I loved Rhian very much and what we went through traumatized me, as other recent incidents have.”

Rhian Ramos is a prized talent of GMA-7 and is being groomed as the next big star. Mo Twister used to be a GMA-7 talent before he moved to TV 5.

Steve Jobs' Vision of the World

This video was taken from the Steve Jobs' documentary titled "One Last Thing".

The world as Steve Jobs saw it:

When you grow up you tend to get told the world is the way it is and you're life is just to live your life inside the world. Try not to bash into the walls too much. Try to have a nice family, have fun, save a little money.

That's a very limited life. Life can be much broader once you discover one simple fact: Everything around you that you call life was made up by people that were no smarter than you and you can change it, you can influence it, you can build your own things that other people can use.

Once you learn that, you'll never be the same again.

Is Piolo Pascual Gay?

Image
The breakup of KC Concepcion and Piolo Pascual started up the rumors about Piolo Pascual being gay again. Frankly I'm sick and tired of this Piolo and KC news. The other day, I was watching TV Patrol and for that half hour the three major news event was former President Gloria Arroyo house arrest. The disbarment case against Sec. De Lima and the break-up of Piolo and KC.

Guess which one had the longest airtime?

To tell you the truth, what does it matter if Piolo is gay? Would it make your life better knowing that? Filipinos can be very judgmental about gays. On one hand, they accept them if they're comedians or beauticians. But other than that, they won't accept them and ridicule them. Maybe because they feel like it hurts the Filipino macho image. Who knows?

Of course, there's this video going around about Piolo while watching the boxing match of Manny Pacquiao.



There's even a photo that is circulating around the Internet about proof that Piolo is gay. One example…
