Pokemon Geeks and Dating

Why Bastardize an RX-7?

During my usual window shopping runs this evening, I was thinking about the idea of purchasing a project car me and my dad (since he's a mechanic) could work on during weekends. He knows a lot about automotive technology and I think that its a good practice to pass on the knowledge to the next generation. The first car that popped into my head when I was thinking project car and cheap was the old Beetle. A lot of people were saying that its kind of a warrior car that, until now, is still a workhorse for the Filipinos. Then I thought to myself, "heck, I'm not going to look hip and young driving those clunkers." Though it just dawned on me just now that it might be a reasonable project car because of the widely available spare parts. Considering that, I still don't want it though.  Vintage, but reflects the youthfulness and the rebel in our generation. It seems that thinking about that made me go back to the Devil Z . It's a Nissan Fairlady S30 Z  or sometime

The Jailbreak One Stop Shop

The United States Library of Congress now allows jailbreaking (your iDevices) and rooting (your Android devices) and an added bonus, ripping your DVDs (for educational purposes of course). You may visit this site for more legal mumbo jumbo or head on to this Engadget post for a more humane translation of all those legal jargons you may come across reading the press release. If you're one of those who asks, " I want to start jailbreaking, so where do I start?" Good question. Back then, it was way confusing even just to identify what iPhone you have or what iPod Touch you're holding. Thanks to this very helpful chart, all resources are now available in one page. image from simplifies the identification tasks of knowing what device you have, what generation and what software to use to jailbreak. It also has a guide for you to follow on your jailbreaking escapades.

Vanille. Snow. Lightning.

I kinda miss playing FFXIII. Pipo still has my CD though, and I think I should worry about some important stuff first. I hope the next time we'd be able to go to that area (near Staples Center) again, we'd be able to watch some live Lakers game.

Starcraft 2 Campaign: 16 Hours

This guy, apparently finished the campaign of Starcraft 2 in 16 hours. Why hello there, didnt you sleep at all? Apparently, I guess most of my friends are really grinding it off in .. Get some sleep guys! Theres also a short read about this found at Kotaku

Starcraft II Pre-Order People

I think all of my friends who pre-ordered Starcraft II got their original copies. It seems that people nowadays are camping more at original retail stores than their trusty pirate stores. Aside from hiccups that the installation needs Windows SP3 updates and some game patches, I think that Facebook has really been quiet because people have started playing online. Image courtesy of + Blizzard Me? I skipped pre ordering or immediately buying the game since my PC and/or laptop is not capable of playing the game. I hope everyone is enjoying! For those who still havent got the hang of the new interface (or those who didnt get the chance to fondle the beauty of it during the beta) Kotaku has posted a squeaky nice article about navigating yourself through the new interface.

Get Your Wallets Ready

An article by Gizmodo posts that the iPhone 4 will be reaching 17 more countries this Friday . Though there is still no news yet when it will arrive here in the Philippines through Apple's carrier partner Globe, snagging a unit in Hong Kong would be the best option for those who cant wait to get the newest iteration of the iPhone. Image from Hong Kong is one of those countries which sells the iPhone carrier free. You get the freedom to choose what carrier you would want to use with your new and shiny iPhone 4. Nothing really beats the feeling of an officially unlocked iPhone. Friday. Yeah!

Damn, if Amy Okuda was really a gamer. That'd be awesome. But then again, Felicia Day is equally hot, being a confirmed gamer and a red head.. Hotness is off the charts! Watch seasons of The Guild in their YouTube channel:

Of Phishing and Spam (Again)

Apparently, upon checking my spam mail again, the phishers got my email address correctly.. But it still doesnt take away the fact that I know its a fake email. Upon mouse over on the logos Heres the full email. They got it correctly this time. But not enough to fool me. Stay safe kids.

Of Phishing and Spam

I dont usually use my Yahoo! Mail anymore but still, I occasionally check if there are still important emails arriving at that address. From time to time, I also check the spam folder just incase Yahoo! wrongly classifies an email as spam. But then again, there are really spam emails and one particular email caught my attention. It was allegedly from Amazon pertaining to an order I made. It was an email receipt for that 'item'. Click for larger view There are things that are pretty much obvious for the trained eye but for those people who are a bit clueless, its a big problem. For example, if you see the complete snapshot above, you could see that my name and my email are spelled wrong. I am not Allan Muigai, nor my email is not .. Some people might react to this as an innocent typo error.. Well, ITS NOT. If its a typo, the email wont be able to get delivered to your inbox. Heres another tricky one, when you check the sender.. At first glance, y
