Remove Reply To All Button In Outlook To Prevent Unintentional Email Replies

2 comments
Unintentional replying to all if you don't intend to is embarrassing and sometimes can get you in trouble. One sad story I previously read is about a woman who got fired after she accidentally sent a snarky email about how she disliked her supervisor. The email was intended to few close colleagues but she accidentally sent it to all. If your an outlook user, you can prevent such thing from happening to you by removing the reply to all button. It can be done in Outlook by following the steps described after the jump.

Track Your Meals And Be Healthy With An App

No comments
According to Geoff Neupert, the author of Six Pack Abs 365, 80% of the formula to have your own six pack abs is nutrition. If your like me who find it true then it would be helpful to track your meals with an app. Thryve is a food tracking app that do just that. But instead of logging how many calories your meal has, it tracks your food log a little different. First it let you take a photo of your food, then enter the ingredients, and lastly indicate how much of each item you ate. After an hour or two, the app will popup and ask you how the meal made you feel. The main point of this app is to remind you of the good and bad foods you had in the past and hopefully eat based on your experience. If your tired playing by the numbers then give this app a try.

No to Digital Martial Law

No comments
As I browse my Facebook page today, I notice the black bar on my friends streams:

████████████████████████.
[ᴄᴏᴍᴍᴇɴᴛ ʙʟᴏᴄᴋᴇᴅ.] (ʀᴀ ɴᴏ. 10175)

My first impression was Facebook had another privacy thing going on. I turn my iPad on and read thorough Tech News via Flipboard app. I find none. So I switch on reading local news and there I learned that "Cybercrime Prevention Act of 2012" is under petition at Supreme Court and the decision will be heard today.

What a shame this law would do. It will kill Filipinos Freedom of Speech specially for Bloggers like me. I am a Filipino and I'm proud to be. This law might have been good if the libel clause was not inserted on it. So I protest against it too. No to Cybercrime bill. No to digital martial law.


God Bless Filipinos. God Bless Our Government.

Upgrade To iOS 6 Is Now Available

No comments
iOS 6 Has Finally Launched. Is It Time To Upgrade?Just earlier I received an unlock email notification for my previously AT&T locked iPhone 4. Thanks to this proven service, my iPhone is unlocked forever. Upon plugging my iPhone to my computer to complete the process, iTunes prompt me to upgrade to iOS 6. Since I plan to sell my iPhone 4 anyway, I opt to upgrade and here are the features that worth the upgrade.

- Maps app. Cool voice-guided turn-by-turn directions.
- Smarter Siri. It can launch apps, update your Facebook or Twitter status and make restaurant reservations. Unfortunately for iPhone 4 users, Siri is not available on your handsets.
- Facebook Integration. Similar to Twitter, Facebook is fully integrated on the entire iOS.
- FaceTime over your carrier's 3G connection. With iOS 6.0, your are free from Wi-Fi's mercy.

More new features after the break!

Pay Your MS Office License As Low As $99.99 Per Year

1 comment
Pay Your MS Office License As Low As $99.99 Per YearHere is another reason to stop using pirated Microsoft software. Microsoft announced on their office blog the newest Office 365 subscriptions for consumers and small businesses which lowers down MS Office licenses pricing to:
- $99.99 annually or $8.33 per month for home users with Office 365 Home Premium subscription.
- $149.99 annually or $12.50 per user per month for small business with 1-10 employees with Office 365 Small Business Premium.

This move shows that Microsoft is redirecting toward subscription-based pricing instead of requiring multiple licenses for each device. Do you agree with this licensing model? let me know what you think, hit the comment.

iPhone 5 is Officially Here

iPhone 5 is Officially Here
OK so it is officially here. Are you surprise? really? because I wasn't. I wasn't because all speculation which I had seen on the mock ups
were at least 99% correct. It is taller, thinner than 4s, 4-inch wider screen, aluminum body (I like the glass body more), 20% lighter than 4S, 8 megapixel shooter, faster A6 processor and smaller connector which they call lightning connector. Some of the new stuffs that I'm looking forward to are the new iOS 6, panoramic camera mode, and FaceTime HD!. Its pricing? the new iPhone will come in 16GB, 32GB, or 64GB versions, with the 16GB version starting at $199.99. My overall impression of the new iPhone? Im a bit disappointed. Like I said before, I am more into looks and in terms of how Apple designed the iPhone 5, there's not much of a difference compare to 4S. It is simply an elongated iPhone 4.

Will I Upgrade to iPhone 5? Yes for sure because I'm an Apple user. My life is built around iPad, iMac, iPod and iPhone. Changing to new environment would be like moving to a new neighborhood. It would be a dumb decision for me.

If iPhone 5 mockups Are True

1 comment
iPhone 5 mockup
If the leaked schematics and mockups from this site is true then I am officially disappointed with the upcoming iPhone 5. I won't even bother going into the details of its new features because the design is plainly boring for me. I started using iPhone 3GS and then upgraded to iPhone 4. When the iPhone 4s was released, i thought twice before deciding to upgrade again because there were no enhancement in how it looks. Mobile phone overall appearance is a big factor for me when switching to newer model. Based on the recent iPhone 5 mockups, I don't like it. Although it has a bigger display, the design is the same with iPhone 4. I might change my mind in the future but if iPhone 5 was released today, sorry I wont buy it. Maybe it is just me. Your opinions are welcome. Drop a comment.

Apple Won The First Round By $1Billion Versus Android

1 comment
Jury from a San Jose court scored it in favor of Apple today. Sure $1B penalty for damages in patent infringement is litte more a jab than damaging blow for Samsung. But this win is more than money for Apple. For Apple, it is a start of a bigger battle against the japanese tech giant and other Android platform mobile companies. The win signifies that Apple can win this patent war agains anybody who they wanted to contest. Investors would now think twice in investing on these Android based technologies and probably would think wiser and diversify. One company aside from Apple will surely benefit from this victory is Microsoft. Unlike Android, Windows phone is far more like iOS and certainly not a target for Apple revenge.

This patent war between Apple and Samsung is far from over so keep tuning in.

New Facebook app for iOS Rewritten In Native Language

1 comment
Facebook has released a completely recoded app yesterday replacing the HTML5 approach that made the original Facebook app run on iOS and Android platform. With this release, Facebook had abandoned the design concept of "write once, run everywhere". The benefit? an enhanced and a lot faster app for iPhone and iPad. As for the other platforms, including Android, Blackberry and Windows phone, the HTML5 version will still be used. Changing it to native OS like this release for iOS is not impossible in the future.

 

Try the new Facebook app. Download it from the app center.

Security Flaw in iOS SMS

No comments
Jailbreak developer pod2g had found a security flaw on how iPhone handle SMS messages. It does not involve code execution but he consider it to be severe because of the things you can do with the flaw. In layman's term, when you write an SMS and press send, your phone translate your SMS to PDU (Protocol Description Unit) language and then transmit it across the network to its recipient. PDU is a set of standard language for SMS technology. If a hacker understands how to create raw PDU text format, he can create a nasty message and change the User Header so it would appear as if it coming from a person you know.

iPhone Jailbreak Tweak To Increase Battery Life

No comments
For the best technology ever invented for the past decade, iPhone's battery life sucks. It should have been a perfect tool if I don't have to charge it everyday. I know many people would agree with me on this one so methods that will help extend its battery usage are more than welcome. BattSaver is one app that I recently tried but requires a jailbroken iPhone. What it does is, it checks for the features of the iPhone that are draining its battery life and suppresses them. Features like WiFi and cellular connections. It has four (4) saving strategies.

Edit Video From Your iPhone

No comments
One thing iOS built-in video recorder lacks is the ability to edit the video that you have recorded. Well I cant blame Apple since after all they call it a recorder and not an editor. If you insist on having one on your phone then you might want to try Videlicious. It allows you to create cool movies with different theme of your choice. Just follow the steps on the app's screen to build a movie of your own.
