Wherever you go with your iPhone/iPod Touch, don't forget to bring that little paper clip for your iPhone/iPod Touch stand. Why buy those expensive stands when you can even have a clip for free? This video teaches you how to fold the wire to form the iPod stand. So easy.

Thanks to Lifehacker.

Holy cow! I just saw a video of a 24-hr simulation of the air traffic worldwide. The planes look like fireflies fluttering in space, only that they never get in contact with one other. It is a bit scary to see how heavy the traffic is up there. However, when you scale this map up, it's not that scary after all.
Watch the video simulation after the jump.

If you intend to boost your relationship or marriage, take a vacation to the world's romantic beaches. The sunset walk along steamy shorelines is a sure way to invite romance into your all-too-normal affair.

Natadola Beach, Fiji - You will love it here. It is the most beautiful white-sand beach in Fiji. Natadola's lush beauty and variety of recreational activities, from snorkeling to horseback riding, draws vacationers from around the world.
Culebra Island, Puerto Rico - The Puerto Rico's Culebra Island is situated 20 miles (30 kilometers) off the northeast coast, has beautiful beaches and plenty of sun, but it's also an old pirate hideout loaded with virtually undisturbed treasures. There are no luxury resorts, elegant restaurants, discos, movie theaters, casinos, museums or boutiques.
Pink Sands Beach, Bahamas - Pink Sands Beach is the place to go for natural beauty, elegant resorts and most importantly, three miles of perfectly pink sand and gentle waters. The ocean is ideal for swimming - warm throughout the year and generally calm, protected from the rolling waves of the Atlantic by a coral reef.
Larvotto Beach, Monte Carlo, Monaco - Perhaps the single most decadently glamorous beach in the world is Monte Carlo's Larvotto Beach, where women may go without their bikini tops, but wouldn't dare to be seen without their jewels.
Do you know of other romantic beaches?

Eskina means corner.

I just saw this video on YouTube with the famous 'corner' in my hometown in Argao, Cebu Philippines. The corner is the intersection of the national road and the Poblacion road. It is where people traveling from the city get off from big buses and flag a tricycle (trisikad) for an 'air-conditioned' ride to their respective homes.

I miss home. Those barbecue stands are cheap and not to mention selling saucy, steamy chicken, pork, beef barbecues. When I go home soon, I will savor every moment and taste every street food for as long as I can.

Thanks to DB3TH for the video.

Just like the U.S. economy, things are going upside down. Even houses are built upside down in purpose to depict the economic downturn. Would you believe that?
Nah, I am just kidding. These upside-down houses were built purely for fun, for tourist attractions; created by the upside-down minds. LOL.  [more photos after the jump]

Where could you find these upside-down houses? Photos of them abound online. And they are just everywhere.

Here is one. The 'Upside Down House' in Trassenheide on Usedom Island, northern Germany. The house of an entrepreneur from Poland is part of the project 'The World Upside Down' that should allow visitors a different view of every day items.
Here is another one located in Poland in the tiny village of Szymbark.
This is Norman Johnson's Upside-Down House in Central Florida.
The "Upside-Down House", designed in 1959 by James Morris and Robert Steedman, the Scottish architects, holds a prominent place in Edinburgh's recent architectural history.

Living in South Dakota is inexpensive. This is because this central State does not have big cities like New York or Minneapolis.

1. The Hoh Valley, Washington - Deep in the rainforests of Olympic National Park

2. The Grand Canyon, Arizona

3. Anza-Borrego State Park, California

4. Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park, the Big Island, Hawaii - with zero sound level

Airfares vary every season, every week, every day, even at the time of day you fly. Peak seasons such as Christmas or mid-summer are usually expensive to fly, airfares can double and you'd end up paying much more than if you travel at any other times of year.
One strategy that most travelers do is to book flights early. For international trips, it is recommended to reserve your tickets 6 months (even a year) before your intended trip. When you browse for airfares online, try to change your day of departure. Sometimes, a single day can make a difference in your airfare cost. I have read somewhere that the best day to purchase a ticket online is Wednesday. I am not sure if this is true.

There are a lot of websites offering cheap airline tickets (domestic or international). When I travel domestically within the U.S., I always take advantage of my being a PhD student and purchase my ticket at Student Universe. The site offers big discounts after confirmation of your student status. However, the availability of the tickets are so limited. StudentUniverse.com doesn't have available flights to foreign countries most of the time. When I searched, for instance, a flight that goes to the Philippines, I always get a note of "does not have any student seats available".

Kayak.com probably is one site that you can get best airfare deals. I browsed for a flight to the Philippines using the data below:

Departure city: Sioux Falls, South Dakota
Departure date: December 10, 2008
Destination city: Manila, Philippines
Return date: January 14, 2008

Kayak.com returned 432 results with $1629 as the cheapest airfare via United Airlines with 2 stops. Not that expensive than what I initially thought, knowing it's a Christmas season and people are going home.

I tried another site that I stumbled upon in a forum -- farecast.live.com. Results showed 236 flight options with the cheapest fare of $1631, just two dollar more than kayak.com. I don't understand why this one is a "little" expensive when the total travel time is in fact an hour longer than the one offered by kayak.com.

Then I tried www.bt-store.com. I've heard the site has good deals for cheap international flights. Wrong. Using the same flight, day, time, the cheapest I could get is $2014. That's too way expensive.

If I have to choose, no doubt that I will go for kayak's price: lesser by two dollars and shorter travel time. So far, I find Kayak.com a great site for finding affordable airfares.

Leave me a comment of you know of more sites with the best air ticket deals.

Look what a language barrier could do to a product presentation. LOL. Japanese CEO Takahito Iguchi made me giggled by his one-word responses to questions about his product "Tonchidot" for a mobile social tagging product.


He had answers like "Imagination!", "We have a patent", and "Never" when asked with lengthy questions. The audience could not help but laugh. It was a very enjoyable presentation -- one of a kind!

It's the first of its kind. Later this month, 3M will launch the Pocket Projector (called, MPro110 mini projector). This is one cool travel gadget for researchers and those in the academe who do presentations often in different events.
The MPro110 is looks like a small grey box from the outside but it gets the job done. A VGA input lets you plug in a laptop while the composite video jack will take output from a digital camera, PSP, iPod, iPhone, or almost any other handheld device. Focusing is done by a thumbwheel on the front of the projector.

3M's projector shows full-color, standard definition video at a rate of at least 60 frames per second (television quality). Its 10 lumens of brightness make it powerful enough to overcome a brightly lit room to project an image about 15 inches across. In a dark room an image of 50 inches could easily be viewed.

The MPro110 uses LCoS display technology to display VGA (640 x 480) resolution. It also uses an LED lamp, which means no fan noise. The LED can display images bright enough to be seen in a brightly lit room.

3M MPro110 Pocket Projector Specifications/Features:
Resolution: 640 x 480
Aspect Ratio: 4:3
Inputs: 1 x VGA D-Sub 15pin and 1 x Composite Video
Outputs: 1 x VGA D-Sub 15pin
Mounting: Instant On and Off Tripod Threads
Weight: .3 lbs
