Salamander vs Frog

Just this morning, my brother showed me a video from YouTube which really amazed me. It was about a frog and a salamander. Since this site actually covers anything with “versus”, i chanced to post it here. 

Watch the video below or click here. You will be amazed how a frog eats a Salamander, yet will be more stunned to see the salamander kill the  frog!

Edifier vs Cdr-King Speakers

Edifier Multi-media speakers versus CDR-king multi-media sound system.

A year ago, my classmate bought a set of Edifier Muti-media speakers. It was composed of 1 subwoofer and 2 little speakers. Although I cant recall exactly its model type, as a music lover, i was impressed by the output of its sound. Generally, the size of the speakers were petite but its quality and quantity were superb. I immediately included it in my “to-purchase list” since a component with 5-6 speakers was still impractical. After few window shoppings on Edifier multi-media speakers, I spotted the same speaker system which costs P 2,295.00. Few months later, I was able to save money enough for my little sound system. Without delay, I ran to the Mall and head immediately to the appliance center. However,  just before I reached the end of the mall(where the appliance center was located), I glanced upon a look-a-alike speaker  but colored silver at CDR-King, it was also composed of 1 subwoofer and 2 little  speakers. I chanced to ask how much. I was stunned to hear that its only for P 999.00. However, since it was so cheap, I doubted its quality. For the sake of curiosity, I asked for a demo. And so, the salesgirl plugged it and played some  music from my MP3 player. Amazingly, the sound was very satisfactory! I see no difference between the quality of sounds on my classmates Edifier and that of the Cdr-king speaker. The notable difference I guess is there price 🙂 I can save about P 1,296.00 for a similar product. I can even buy 2 sets of CDR multi-media speakers, and definitely outrun even branded speakers. And so, I bought the set and till now, i am very much satisfied with it! Thanks to CDR kings super cheap products!

MAC vs PCs 2

Macintosh versus PC?

My first post bout MAC vs PC was like 3 months ago. I mentioned there that I’ll buy a Mac as soon as i can save money. True enough, I now own an ibook G4 12 inch. I bought it a week ago and I am very satisfied with its performance. However, my first hour with MAC was so confusing.

Jem, who assisted me in the store showed the ibook and told me she will leave in a moment so I can check on the MAC. At one point I was glad because I can indeed scrutinize the laptop. On the other hand I was left with a big a Question mark because I had never used a MAc before. And so, to avoid embarrassment from all buyers who where inside the  store that time, I started to slide my finger on the trackpad and tried to click on anything as if I am a MAC user. I first clicked on the single icon I saw on the desktop, it was named MACINTOSH HD. The filed opened and I saw on my left scrollbar, DEVICES, SHARED, PLACES, and SHARED FOR.I was looking for things like, MY DOCUMENTS, MY COMPUTER, RECYCLE BIN, etc. And so, I was left with a Big “?” again. “What now?” I thought. As a customer came close to see what I was doing, I immediately clicked on the MACINTOSH HD icon under DEVICES so that the customer will not noticed I was confused hehe. And so a display of several applications showed up. There was the Ichat, Imovie,  quick time player, itunes, etc. I even noticed a file with a name SAFARI and thought it was lists of animals 🙂 Anyway, I didn’t bother to click on that and went on by clicking the itunes since that was by far the most known to me that time. I played few music files and continued to explore the MAC. Few minutes later, Jem appeared and asked if I was doing fine. I slowly whispered her,  “actually jem, its my first time to use mac.” She then taught me few basics and demo. Somehow, it helped me grasp more pictures about MAC. 

After that short lesson, I told her I’ll buy the laptop. Even if back on my mind, I still have lots and lots and even tons of questions about how to use the MAC, I paid the unit and went home. Another 3 hrs travel home and I chanced to  read the manual that goes with the unit. It was like I bought a new cellphone and got to know my CP by reading its manual. And so, i arrived home and started to open my MAC. I tried to performed few things I read from the manual and began to acquaint myself with my new buddy. I then went on by clicking every icon I saw, even the SAFARI. Thats when I knew that SAFARI was a web browser application not an encyclopedia or a trip to a zoo program 🙂  I then found out that MACINTOSH HD icon was like the MY COMPUTER of PC. MY DOCUMENTS was equated with the DOCUMENTS in MAC. I was even  amazed by an application DASHBOARD since I can group programs/applications I want in just one click. I discovered more and more things and began to realize that MAC wasn’t difficult to learn at all. Its just maybe because many people here know PCs than mac. Anyway, first times are always more tasking.

A day after, i brought my Laptop at my office. I immediately tried to experiment how it will deal with viruses. Since the computer in our office was filled with so many viruses, I plugged my Flashdisk for a while so it will be infected and plugged it eventually on my MAc. Undoubtedly, files like “exp1orer”, “recyler”, “autoRun”, “smss.exe”, nyg1xz, etc showed up. I immediately dragged all of it  into the Trash bin and a pop-up menu asked  me if i still intend to continue since the files were all locked. I clicked Yes of course. And so, it were all in my Trash bin. however, as I tried to empty my Trash bin, the viruses cannot be deleted. Few instructions later revealed that I just need to press the option bar so it will be deleted. Without delay I press the option bar while deleting my trash. And so, I  was very  glad to hear a crashing sound as the files/viruses were totally removed/deleted.

I immediately spread this good new in our office because our office is currently plagued with viruses. In fact, an office mate can no longer boot his HP laptop because it was infected with a virus named “UST Scandal.exe” And so, few personnel went to  me and let there flashdisks cleaned by manually removing suspicious files.

Well, I am just one of the happiest persons because I somehow get rid of these very annoying viruses.

So, you guys out there, think twice before you buy another PC. If you buy a PC, you may avoid “firsttime confusions” in MAC but you will never get rid of the thousands of viruses which will eat your time, money, effort, and patience. Think twice! Consider a MAC.

Lebron James versus Kobe Bryant

Lebron James versus Kobe Bryant?

Olympics in Beijing is just around the corner. One of the games I’m eager to watch is basketball, to see Lebron again and his high flying dunks. I’m anxious to see how will Lebron lead the US Team and bring home a Champion. If he has not brought the Cavaliers to NBA Champs this year because he lacks team duo/ assitance, maybe this is the right time.

However, just this morning I heard from a friend that he saw KOBE Bryant on TV commenting that he’s nervous on the olympics because its his first time to lead the US to Olympic game. What?

Will Kobe Bryant lead the US team or Is it Lebron James? Lets wait and see..

 Will it really be KOBE BRYANT? or LEBRON JAMES?
