iPhone Texting Speed Test: slow as crap

Everyone seems to be lusting for the iPhone. Heck, even me.

And why not? It's sexy, it's thin, it's powerpacked, it's an Apple, it meshes welll with my Mac, etc., etc., etc.

Until reality kind of kicked in: I'm a Filipino and, you know, we Filipinos do a heck of a lot of texting.

It was all a big hypothetical question of "how the heck will I be able to text on one?" -- until I actually got the chance last Friday.

Let me tell you, it was hell. Check out this video -- no Filipino will want one after seeing how slow this guy is. And to think that the phone seems to be anchored down on something (it doesn't move at all),it's cheating!

Advice to everyone: when the iPhone comes out -- don't buy one. Wait until all your friends are dying to have someone take them off their hands. That way, you can have an iPhone cheap for your music, internet, and telephony needs! (Keep your old cellphone for texting though.)

Battle at Kruger

Here's something more interesting than the previous post about the battle between Lindsay Lohan and the Papparazzi.

Seriously. Don't think that a pride of lions will always win against a herd of buffaloes.

Go buffaloes!

A Day in the Life of Lindsay Lohan - HOLLYWOOD.TV

After seeing this video by HollywoodTV and Perez Hilton, I am slowly beginning to understand why Lindsay Lohan, Britney Spears and Paris Hilton have become so darn self-destructive.

Seriously, these papparazzi are like crazed animals on the hunt. It's sickening and senseless and potentially dangerous. (Take the case of Lady Di)

Why these guys even bothered to create an 8 minute video, edited, captioned, and musically scored tells us that:
1. Some people will do anything to create content, mindless and useless though it may be. That's disturbing. Lindsay Lohan drinking coffee, going to the salon --- that's not news, is it?
2. There's obviously a market for this sort of thing (80,000 views for this video as I write this)

The end of the world is nigh.

"Nightmare": Hotforwords explains

You really find all sorts of videos on Youtube. This is from Marina of HotForWords. She claims to be a philologist and what she does is create videos discussing the etymology of words.

Nerdy stuff. Except that this particular nerd has more than 14,000 Youtube subscribers!

It must be her brain that attracted them all, huh?

In any case, watch the clip. I actually LEARNED something from it.

The controversial Youtube video

A spectator shot this video of Lewis Hamilton "driving erratically" behind the safety car at the Japanese Grand Prix.

As a result of Hamilton's driving, Vettel crashed into Webber's car.

Was Hamilton unprofessional? Or did he just lose control?

The FIA said he was not at fault and didn't penalize him for the incident.

What do you guys think?


On an aside, this incident was never caught on TV. Isn't the rise of camera phones and Youtube amazing? In the old days, this would never have come to light!

Pinoys: Get back at Desperate Housewives!

Show your indignation at Desperate Housewives by wearing this shirt! The text says "I graduated from some med school in the Philippines."

While I, personally, didn't take up medicine, many of my relatives and friends did and are doing very well, not just in the Philippines, but in the United States as well.

Now, imagine if every Pinoy doctor and nurse in the United States wore this shirt... that'll teach 'em to make fun of our medical schools!

Spread the word.

Get the shirt here.

Teri Hatcher insults Filipinos

Actually, blame the scriptwriter.

And the producer.

And the network.

Shame, shame, shame.

Please, dear Lord, for poetic justice, when these guys grow old or get sick, let them get Filipino nurses and doctors to care for them. And let the dialogue please be, " Oh, I'm sorry. I shouldn't treat you because I'm from the Philippines."

Check these out:
