    An App-ocalypse is coming

    Feb 19 • Blog • 2289 Views

    Yesterday, as I drove––for lack of a better term–– to work down the SLEX, I witnessed the start of what Nostradamus and the Mayans were trying to tell us all along. It wasn’t the mushroom in the sky or the next antichrist they we’re talking about; it was quite simply the beginning of the construction …

    These trucks got some balls!

    Feb 14 • News • 1427 Views

    Some car companies plant trees, some build a school; these are all very important for our youth. But so is playing. Which is why Chevrolet Philippines chose to donate 17,000 indestructible soccer balls to under privileged kids. Although there was no actual media event, when asked why such a unique gift, Lyn Buena, the senior …

    LTFRB Chairman orders shutdown of carpool app

    Feb 12 • Blog • 4845 Views

    Yup. That wasn’t a hook just to get you in. This is real. LTFRB Chairman Ginez has threatened to jail the developers of two apps Tripid and Uber (the latter was launched only today) that connects drivers offering a ride and passengers needing one. He claims that they are in breach of the public service …

    Cat sells himself for 67k to help victim of road accident

    Last April 30, 2013. A single mom was on her way home from work when a taxi driver had fallen asleep behind the wheel and rammed his cab into the back of the jeepney she was boarding. Right there, on the spot, her right leg was severed above the knee. When Bonnevie Cattery heard about …

    Bus companies start installing speed limiters

    Feb 7 • Blog • 5085 Views

    It didn’t take a law or a ruling from the LTFRB to force some responsible bus companies to start fitting speed limiters on their fleet of busses. Initially, it was done for safety, they said. But now they are finding out that it is not only lives that they are saving. Victory’s shop supervisor, Brix …

  • How do speed limiters work?

    Feb 4 • Blog, Video • 4736 Views

    In a nutshell, a lot better than the idiots who they put behind the wheel of our busses. But for the sake of productivity, lets start off on a happier note and get to the point. One device presented to the LTFRB uses a micro controller based electronic circuit (actual unit pictured here) which reads …

    I bought my first brand new car

    Feb 4 • Blog, Car Review • 41066 Views

    Just yesterday, I got to experience one of life’s biggest joys––the delivery of my first brand new car in 18 years. Might seem odd to some seeing that I pick up a brand new car every week, but it is different when its yours. Just ask an OB-Gyn. It is the classic hallmark moment and is as …

    Ford launch the all-new EcoSport

    Jan 30 • News • 7968 Views

    So what is it? It is a five-seater UUV. That’s not Ford speak, that’s my own acronym for Urban Utility Vehicle. Think of a Fiesta on stilts and you’ll have a fair idea. It uses the 110ps Ford Fiesta 1.5 liter engine and comes in both 5-speed manual and Ford’s powershift auto. There’s no word …

    Could this be the country’s most economical car?

    Jan 30 • Car Review • 5772 Views

    I’m on a hunt. I’m looking for the country’s most economical car. Now in theory that should be quite easy––just gather all the brochures and compare fuel consumption figures. But because I don’t drive a brochure to work, I’m looking for more than that. I’m looking for real-world figures, under realistic conditions, done on Philippine …
