Pardon the cliche, but it's one of the holiest of Holy Grails of technology: Wireless power. And while early lab experiments have been able to "beam" electricity a few feet to power a light bulb, the day when our laptops and cell phones can charge without having to plug them in to a wall socket still seems decades in the future.

Nokia, however, has taken another baby step in that direction with the invention of a cell phone that recharges itself using a unique system: It harvests ambient radio waves from the air, and turns that energy into usable power. Enough, at least, to keep a cell phone from running out of juice.

While "traditional" (if there is such a thing) wireless power systems are specifically designed with a transmitter and receiver in mind, Nokia's system isn't finicky about where it gets its wireless waves. TV, radio, other mobile phone …

SUTUKIL 2009

after a lazy Sunday packing our stuff and checking out the hotel, which i dont want to and im sure the rest of the guys too at alte 12.30, our boss want to eat outside at sutukil which stands for sugba tuwa kilaw. i was excited over this idea. i really want to go home since i miss my ate,s kids and missed my bed too. i hopped on sir jay's car and there we went ahead of the group. went to drop at Mannas and sir jay spoils to find all the things he liked which we all does. Lobster, shell and Lapu-lapu.Who else doesnt care to eat it when the shrimp turn red and buttery, the kinilaw that has the freshest melting taste and of kors top it down with ice cold 7.UP. quencher and of course filling. I had fun experience listening to Pio, Mikel, Inez and Tiffany, kids discussing over their party (pio's bday) whos going to spend it, where to, and Inez said the funniest line. " Kuya if your going to have a party, cn i invite my friends too? in which Inez is just 5 years old. and so on…

Over the weekend

Independence day never stopped the marketing division of Sun.star cebu to hold its 2nd half conference of the year. It was done at the Pink icon of Cebu. Hilton resort hotel. it was a nice view since our rooms where all facing the Olanggo island and its pool and Manny O's watering hole. people and me as well enjoyed the night away and the fun and suspense there is in the conference. So much reporting and the team building increases the camaraderie of the group. Sir jay made sure we would not go home empty handed. it was eloquently extravagant of the group. but i could never had the best of it when the food they have were fabulously gastronomical. None of us complained and after a good buffet were all smiles and good booze, in a beautiful bed. it was a weekend get-away plus work.I love the stream bath there for free and the toiletry were from crabtree and evelyn. isnt this a taste of good life and fortune? well, what can i say?

The Moalboal weekend get-away

Image
We were invited by Backpackers Lodge owner Torsten Siggelkow to attend the opening of its Moalboal's new place to stay in the most budget-friendly Hostel. I failed the first time since i was in atight budget then and stranded with soo many things to do. Last June 6, i should keep the promise since its been month for having it delayed. Finally, I convinced Jello, whom my constant buddy on every trip i possibly made impulsively. We took the 5:20pm trip of Ceres bus going south; to our amazed bus fare is 75.00 only and reached Moalboal by 8.25pm. we grabbed trike ride going there for a hundred and whalllaaa. We reached the mediocrity of Panagsama beached, passing by barrio's celebrating fiesta. There, we met the owner and mary ann the wife, Carrie the Fil-American who hails from San Diego. Suffering from her eye sore. we were ushered to eat the pork chop grilled and barbecue, we had red wine asnd efter the sumptuous diner. we were then led to our room right after the sales count…

the bar weekend

i had a hectic sched for the rest of the weeke and last week, rebooting and gulping a lot of alcohol turns me into a hyperpschedilicfrenzyfeeding monster. it was Saturday and party just gets any better. but i dont since it a summer ender event i need to crash myself with people whom i know, cud party that way all night long. I was with some SB adiks which supposedly theres another party or get together somewhere mountain. but i love the beach, so i chose to be different. ending summer with a stash of sand, sea, vodka and of course some friends. Photos show you how we tame ourselves and then party like a rockstar.
