Sony Walkman W262

Sony launches new Walkman W262 Series last September 16-18, 2011 at the SM Mall of Asia. Read my personal account of the Product launch here. The following details came from the Press Release material.

Four colors to choose from
A head-turner The wearable Walkman is back and now, it’s 25% lighter than its predecessor weighing only 32 grams and boasting of a smaller and more compact look. Discriminating fashionistas who are looking for a more stylish way to enjoy their music will not be disappointed with its chic design and wide range of colors: from the subtle white and black to the vibrant pink and blue. The NWZ-W262 can be the perfect finishing accessory to an outfit. With no wires dangling around, anyone who wears his Walkman will surely look polished.

What a sport While being a looker, the new Walkman NWZ-W262 brings with it the same water-resistant and washable features making it an ideal sports buddy. Listen to your favorite music while warming up for an intense game of basketball. Turn up the volume to give you an additional boost to run an extra mile on the treadmill. Go on with your cycling routine even under the rain. Whatever it is, the new Walkman NWZ-W262 will continue to provide the perfect musical score for your active lifestyle.

Convenience Aside from this, the compact Walkman is packed with features that make it very convenient to use. It comes equipped with Content Transfer software which enables music lovers to simply drag-and-drop their music from their computer or iTunes library. The Walkman W262 also comes with ZAPPIN song search technology which enables music browsing through a short audio preview of each track. So no need to take your eyes off the road to look for music while running to find the track you are looking for.

Music to last a whole night long One of audiophiles’ pet peeve is when their MP3 player dies in the middle of their favorite song. With the Walkman W262, you get to enjoy eight hours of uninterrupted music playback when full charged while the Quick Charge function provides music playback of up to 60 minutes with a mere three-minute charge which is perfect for fashionistas on-the-go and those who are living an active lifestyle.

First dibs on the new wearable Walkman Recently, Filipino audiophiles were given a chance to try out the new Walkman NWZ-W262 in an event held in SM Mall of Asia which transcended and recreated reality. Hosted by famous music icon Billy Crawford, the participants were able to transform into different characters such as a biker, a cheerleader and a skateboarder just to name a few. A flash mob of joggers also raided the mall to demonstrate how the new wearable Walkman fits in the arsenal of active urbanites. So whether you want to glam up or sweat it out, the wire-free, water-resistant, washable and stylish Walkman NWZ-W262 is the ideal music player a music-lover can have.

Kapighatian sa Likod ng Ulan

Ang mga musika ng patak ng ulan,
bigat sa aking utak at nararamdaman.
Bakit may gayong mga kapighatian,
sa likod ng aking mga nalalaman?

Isipa'y may gabundok na minimithi,
sa pusong may ibang nililimi.
Bakit may gayong pagdidili-dili,
sa puso't-isipang magkaiba ang sidhi?

Photo from My Gossip
Kapighatian sa likod ng ulan,
naghahangad puso'y magkaroon ng kalayaan,
Bakit ba't ang puso'y madaling mabihag,
ng mga maka-mundong pagliliyag?

Ang mga musika ng patak ng ulan,
ginhawa rin sa sandali ng kapighatian.
Sino ang may tiwalang ito'y naglulan,
sa kamay ng Amang makapangyarihan?

Puso't-isipa'y dagling nagkaintindihan,
sa pag-hupa ng ula'y, nagkaunawaan.
Paano maihahambing ang kataas-taasan,
sa pagbibigay-sigla na walang hanggan?

Mede8er 500x2 Internet Media Player

The technology today has been widely rising, getting more sophisticated, much mobile, easily gets upgraded or updated, and more eye-catching. Talk about user-friendliness, if you're new to these technologies or used to old behaviors and interface, you might say that it's much confusing to use and navigate.

Just a few years back, I was already so glad and happy for having a Home Theater and LCD TV which lessens the space occupied in my bedroom but having much bigger and brighter screen. Then I thought, what else could be re-developed for Televisions and media players except for new codecs and screen resolutions/sizes? Then one by one, came new updates for these digital entertainment system from USB-reading capability which was first introduced to media players, and was also embedded on TVs and computer monitors. A few more months and the TV-monitor in-one came rushing to the market, a few more months and the internet TV came out.

Again I wondered, what else can be done? Is it already the end of embedding new technologically-advanced features for the entertainment appliances?

The answer came last August 27, 2011 during the homey-atmosphere product launching of one of the new but promising digital entertainment system - an Internet Media Player from Mede8er (sounds as "mediator").

Who would think a decade earlier that enjoying a movie with your family can be enjoyed not just in your entertainment room but also simultaneously anywhere in your house? (take note of the word "simultaneous").

Mede8er is relatively an unknown brand, specially here in the Philippines. But their latest among their media players, the Med500x2, is one that can boast of a lot of features packed in a small, mobile box. It is developed by Sanji Electronics from South Africa, using the technology capabilities of Realtek (which you will also find mostly from our PC motherboards).

Mede8er MED500x2 is a High-Definition Internet Media Player (HD-IMP), which has been designed for good solid media playback from a hard drive, USB device, SD Card, Internet or Local Network source. It is also equipped with advanced features like Fast Gigabit Port and Super Fast USB 3.0 Slave port and is upgrade-ready for the fast PCIe WiFi kit that will be available as an optional aftermarket upgrade kit. The Mede8er fully supports the very latest video codec's such as MKV-H264, BDMV, BDISO, M2TS for seamless playback of all supported media files. You can now pass full HD Audio streams via HDMI to your amplifier for a full 7.1 surround sound experience.

The demo box sporting a 1TB Samsung SATA Harddrive
The MED500X2 is one of the first Media Players on the market to support the very latest 3TB Sata Hard Drives. The built-in Hard Drive format utility will format the hard drive without the need for a PC.

The MED500X2 also supports Online Media Streams, so now you can launch YouTube XL and browse or search the online videos of your choice. X2 will also stream Video Podcasts such as World News, US News, Technology, Entertainment, and Sports from all over the world. You can also browse the Internet or listen to Internet Radio or just enjoy Social Media like Facebook and Twitter. For correct system operation we recommend the use of an optional external wireless keyboard when using the Internet Browser.

How's that for the features? Don't get overloaded yet as it has more to offer than I could write here in this post. You can view more of these features and specifications from Mede8er MED500x2 Product Page or you may also browse the Med8er MED500x2 User's Manual.

Manila, August 1 - You don’t have to be a bad-ass skater to pull off Fall’s freshest street wear. Skateboarders have gone their own way since the beginning and their fashion has helped define street style from the first time renegade skaters caught air in an empty swimming pool in the 70s. It was not about suiting up in high-tech athletic gear, and neither is it the case now. It was all about putting yourself out there and not taking things too seriously.

Skateboarders have a history of flying in the face of the fashion mainstream. Some say it is because it takes an independent person to master this solitary, self-reliant sport. Along with it is an "in-your-face" rough and tumble streetwear that just adds to the sport’s mystique. Hitting shelves in retail since August, the skate-lifestyle inspired range, adidas Originals ST, dares you to be unique with its fun and vibrant designs for today’s alternative youth.

Leave it to the experts as adidas marries form and function, offering clothes that look as cool when you’re flying through a half-pipe or when you’re doing a grind. Put on some swag as adidas ST goes a little bit rebellious. Skateboarders don’t follow trends but they do set them.

Made for the active lifestyle of the young consumer, the collection boasts of bold colors, playful graphics, and trendy details across footwear and apparel. adidas’ street fashion emerged not from studios, but from the grassroots. Inspired by the city’s urban cool vibe, culture, music, and lifestyle – the adidas Originals ST collection is bringing street trends to the youth, while maintaining its reputation having created the most fashion-forward innovations. If you love the challenge of doing high jumps and vertical maneuvers then let it translate into your style. Be a little different, dare to be unique and show them who you really are.


The adidas Originals ST is now available in the following outlets:

adidas Trinoma
adidas SM Megamall
adidas Power Plant Mall
adidas Gateway Mall
adidas Resorts World Newport
adidas Robinsons Place Ermita
adidas Robinsons Galleria
adidas Festival Mall
adidas Eastwood

Ula'y Nakiisa

Ang ula'y nagdaramdam,
sa aking nauulinigan;

Mga guni-guning walang pakialam,
sa utak na walang nalalaman!
