It’s a grand car and gadget show aiming to showcase the wide array of custom-made cars, the latest gadgets and the latest app from AppLabs – CarCrazee.

The Next Ultimate Android Tablet – Torque DROIDZ Ultimate

Torque DROIDZ Ultimate

A few days back I was at the Torque Media Launch at Le Pavillon in Pasay City. And while Torque presented a wide range of Android-powered Smartphones at the event, what grabbed my attention was, for me, the next ultimate Android Tablet – Torque DROIDZ Ultimate. Set to be released early January, the DROIDZ Ultimate tablet will run on the latest Android 4.1 OS, the Jelly Bean. What initially captured my attention was the huge screen which I prefer. As a matter of fact, my plan should I buy a tablet is to get the iPad because of the size factor. Obviously, Torque’s version pales in comparison with Apple’s baby as far as the screen is concerned with its 9.7″ XGA 1024×768 capacitive touchscreen. But it definitely has a several things that the iPad doesn’t have. Aside from the big real estate, the next ultimate Android Tablet comes equipped with ...

Create Websites Easily with IM-Creator

IM-Creator Features

One of the challenges I encountered when I decided to put up my own blog and website for my business was creating my own website. Sure, there are countless services that I can sign up for, but my initial challenge was in getting started. Now everyone can create websites easily with IM-Creator – a service I came across recently.  I’m not sure if they existed at the time when I was just starting. I sure wish I had them before when I was in search for a web maker online. One can choose from a variety of categories to use a template from. What I like is that each template has it’s own character and they’re all well-made. Plus, it’s customizable. I remember my first blog looking like the same with the rest of the bloggers. I had to try to learn some HTML just to make it a little ...
