Shipping Laptops With Lithium-Ion Batteries

  Once when I had to make a decision between choosing DHL and FedEx for shipping laptops with lithium-ion batteries from the Philippines to a neighbouring country, my first choice was DHL.

Google AdWords Suspension: Suspicious Payments

Last week I signed up for Google AdWords and created a campaign to test the waters. The minimum I paid for was $10 and Google collected my payment via a Philippine-issued debit card. When I signed up, I saw the location or Country drop drown menu detected Vietnam by default. Thinking I was supposed to… Continue reading Google AdWords Suspension: Suspicious Payments

How I Fixed My Laptop’s Static Screen and Flickering Lines Problem

You’re working on a document or streaming a video on your laptop when flickering lines suddenly appear on the side of the screen until it rapidly takes up the whole space.

Changes To The YouTube Partner Program

Yesterday I have been obsessed with de-cluttering my email accounts and my main GMail account was a tricky one to clean up because it’s the oldest email account I have.

SMS Sent to 447786205094

I rarely examine my cellular phone’s monthly statement but two days ago was an exception and I found a PhP180+ worth of sms sent to a UK number, 447786205094. I had noticed this before but brushed it off as some of those mobile verification text messages some websites like Yahoo!, GMail and Outlook would usually send.

Direct to Local Bank Upwork Withdrawal

Here’s a simplified way of looking at the same day direct to local bank Upwork withdrawal option: Remember that Skrill will only be available as a withdrawal method until April 24, 2017. After that date, I will update with another option for a speedier local funds transfer/direct to local bank alternative using PayPal.

iOS 10’s Intrusive Notifications

When I chanced upon an article last week about developers already testing the iOS 10.1 version, I finally decided to update my iPhone 6 Plus’s software.
