100th Post Milestone

Wow, just wow. That's my reaction when I noticed that the last post I wrote was the 99th. Frankly, I never thought that I would dedicate myself enough to at least reach 50 posts, but reality said otherwise. Thanks to you my dear readers and friends who encourage me to keep writing :D

If you don't mind, I'd like to reminisce for a little bit. I started this blog when I was in early high school. At first, I was interested in SEOs and there were many success stories about people getting rich through personal blogs. Yes, I'm not ashamed to admit that the sole purpose of this blog was to make money. I had plans for this blog, trying to hook it up with AdSense, etc. Unfortunately, Google kept declining my application and I gave up.
The moment I gave up was the moment I realized that I have taken a liking in writing. I started to write my own novel when I was in second grade high school. I had been playing numerous jRPGs, so I know a little bit about crafting stories, let it…

Remove Those Intruding Ads!

Being a long-time Android user, it's hard not to get familiar with ads. Yes, being Open Source, there are countless SDKs involving various advertising networks and platforms that developers can use to monetize their applications. I don't say it's bad, and I can't say it is because it's actually a win-win solution, for both developers and users.

Monetizing apps with ads actually helps everyone. It helps developers get money for their hard work, it helps advertisers doing their business, and it also helps companies market their products to a greater audience. Most importantly, ads in apps allow us users to get more free apps in the Play Store. See the picture?

However, despite that fact, there are also limits to which apps can be monetized. Earning money isn't wrong, but sometimes the way we use to get money isn't right. An example of this is when I was asked a few days ago by my father to fix his tablet. It's an Android tablet which is kind of hard to u…

MiLi Power Prince Plus (HB-C50-2) Review

Another day, another review. Well, not actually. This is my first review after a few months of being inactive. Anyway, today I'm going to review an external battery unit or a portable charger (or a power bank, some might say) by MiLi: the Power Prince Plus. I am aware that this might be an old product, but since I got it on a steep discount (approximately U$13), it shouldn't hurt to get one and review it immediately.

Okay, before moving to the review, let's cover the surface first. This unit is capable of holding 6,000mAh of charge, allowing it to almost fully charge an iPad once or a smartphone once to three times, depending on the battery. Oh yes, and this device is also certified for use in Apple's iDevice lineups, so you shouldn't be afraid to use it on your iPhones, iPods, or iPads.

That's it for the basics. Hit the break if you want to read the full review. Happy reading :D
