For those living abroad or working abroad who wanted to watch their favorite shows from ABS-CBN that doesn’t cost much can download IWanT apps from your app store though it will not work if you are not in the Philippines. A way to watch it is using VPN where you can spoof your ip to ip in Philippines.
I was trying to search for cheap VPN service which doesn’t cost much and i found PH VPN and it only cost $1 per month and it got stable connection. I can now enjoy watching TV Patrol every evening using IwanT without lag.
Recently I have updated a site that I have created for our group using the free webhost available online. I used to run the website of FILMAN Language Services on wordpress but I find it lack of functionality such as installing plugins unlike if you have wordpress installed. After searching on google I found 000webhost and it is free and wordpress can be installed, I have tried it and also got a free domain for FILMAN Language Services.
While setting up wordpress the connection lost once in a while and I don’t know why, I need to wait for a few minutes for it to come back online. I don’t expect too much for this host because it is free to use and this is ideal for those who are learning to use wordpress and I totally recommends it but if you are going to use it for business I won’t recommend using this. Anyway, I am using it for business temporarily and we still need to discuss about buying a domain and webhost to grow business.
Another year have passed and it is time to renew my webhost, I am using shared hosting of Namecheap for a few year already and it cost me $38.88 every year to renew it. Recently I have noticed that they have changed their webhost package name and price is much lesser than Value 4G package that I have been using and I immediately contacted the support if it is possible to change my current package to their new Stellar package, the thing that I appreciated using Namecheap is fast response of their support and support said that I can directly downgrade my current package to stellar package and all downgrades are prorate, any balance from my existing plan will be carried over to my Namecheap funds that may be used to settle the next generated invoice or pay for any other services with them (I received $1 plus LoL) and paid $24.88 for one year (current 20% off promo for one year subscription)
I am satisfied using Namecheap as my hosting and domain provider compare to other webhost service that I have used, didn’t have any problem encountered and they can also solve any problem I have escalated. Anyway, I personally would recommend Namecheap.
Recently Apple have released a major update IOS 11.3 and one of the function added is battery health feature in which you can monitor the health of your battery whether it need to be replaced. But the feature doesn’t work with replacement battery (not original apple battery) and it doesn’t show the health of your battery. There is a way that you can monitor your battery health which is by downloading an apps called “BATTERY LIFE” and it works perfectly on my phone. I guess those who have replacement battery like I do will not enjoy this feature 🙁
I was trying to reformat my old laptop but it fails whenever I install the driver for PCI memory or Intel Turbo Memory, it hangs when I restart my laptop. Tried lot of version of Windows 10 that I can find online but it all fails on the said driver, it runs well if I don’t install the driver but for me it seems weird if I don’t install the driver because I don’t like seeing devices with question mark on device manager.
I decided to downgrade to Windows 7 and it runs perfectly without any problem after installing Intel Turbo Memory driver, i think the driver doesn’t support Windows 10 that’s why it hangs or freezes on Windows 10 logo.
Just researched a while ago for the fastest internet provider in Philippines by Netflix Index, well..Philippines still need to improve its internet speed specially mobile internet in which most of the people uses nowadays on their smart phone. I really hope that the internet speed in Philippines will improve in the future and have a better provider.
Recently I was trying to use Linux once again and it’s been decade since the last time I have used linux, nowadays linux is much easier to install and configure unlike back in the days which is pain in the ass to install linux. It doesn’t have GUI based installer and need to partition your disk manually but now you just need few clicks and your linux machine will be up and running. I have been searching linux distros which will suit my needs and will not have any error message when I boot up, there are lots of great distro out there but I chose to install DEEPIN which has beautiful desktop environment. I have used it for more than a week but I feels that something is still missing and I am not contented.

It’s been few weeks since I have switched to IOS from android, so what are my thoughts on IOS?
- IOS is stable than android
- Not able to customize the looks and feels unlike android unless it is jail-broken
- Simple design
- Need to download apps in able to clean apps cache unlike android can easily clean cache by accessing settings
- Secured? I guess both security are the same
- Lacks of NFC,quick charge and wireless charging (maybe on iPhone 8?)
Anyway, my overall conclusion is I love the phone because it is simple and elegant though sometimes I am still looking for stuffs that I can do with android but there’s nothing I can do because both are different platforms and have different design. In the future maybe Apple will improve their products specially on hardware in which nowadays there are lots of powerful smart phone that can compete with them in the market.
