Wanna Earn Cashback for Online Shopping? Try ShopBack

Shopback

Through ShopBack, we can earn cash incentives each time we shop.

I don’t know about you, but I cannot be more thrilled with the advent of online shopping. Come to think about it, I might have been shopping online for close to a decade now. For me, nothing beats the convenience of shopping online. Unlike shopping in actual stores, where I tend to impulse more, online shopping allows me to pause, open another tab, browse through actual product user reviews, before I jump right in and click that check-out tab.

Online Shopping

Online shopping is my reliable route to practical and mindful shopping. Getting cashback incentive for things we shop for online is totally icing on my cake! A sweet bonus for us online shoppers, methinks. (more…)

Several uncontrollable factors – from exposure to UV rays to diet choices – can take its toll on the skin, resulting to dryness, unwanted wrinkles, uneven tone, poor texture and color, and sagging. After stringent studies by the Avon Skin Care Institute, Anew Ultimate was created to help women combat these skin concerns.

The Filipino Videoke Culture

Our love affair for Videoke or Karaoke goes back many generations. It’s a love/hate, really. There is almost not a day that a contact will not rant about a neighbor’s speaker blasting on their videoke session on Facebook. The love affair of Filipinos with music may have a lot to do with our being musically-inclined. It has become our way of life that whether or not we have trained voices, we feel that we have the liberty to just belt out as we wish. It’s a free country, really. But we also need to be considerate. (more…)

Are You Ready? March 31 is World Backup Day!

World-Backup-Day-2017

Did you know that March 31 is World Backup Day?

I don’t know about you, but these days, you do not need to be a blogger to know that you have to get your files backed up. I learned this early on when Yahoo Photos closed down on September 2007. It was three years prior when we discovered the convenience of digital photos. Imagine losing three years of precious photos. It was then that I learned the importance of backing up my files.

Fast forward to 10 years after, the value of backing up has magnified exponentially even as file sizes get larger and larger. While photos then only take up a few hundred KBs, now, with the ever-increasing byte proportions of images due to the innovations of High Definition (HD) technology, each photo has now grown to a file size of 2MB or more.

According to Mylio’s estimates, more than 14 trillion photos will be taken in 2017, basing on a prediction that there will be 7.5 billion people in the world. So multiply 14 trillion photos by 2MB and you’ll get 28 petabytes (28 with 15 zeroes) of photos just this year. An IDC Digital Universe Study said that as of 2011, the amount of information created and replicated will exceed 1.8 zettabytes (1.8 trillion gigabytes).

 

World Backup Day

World Backup Day was chosen to be the day before April 1st (April Fools) in order to drive the message that one should backup all those pictures, spreadsheets, love letters, cat pictures, & important financial documents before it’s too late. (more…)
