      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      good aternative for Iphone

      Samsung Galaxy Y is not as sophisticated as any Iphones but, the functions and other features it is a good alternative. I can say this phone is made for those who look for not that expensive phone but wanted the same features, touch screen, social media features and internet connection functions.

      Durability

      What makes a phone durable for me is, I can used it for a long time. A phone will last if the owner knows how to take care of it, but of course sometimes there are accidents, like it slip to your hand or it got pulled from the charger and fall. These things happened to my phone, I always thoughts it will not work again or some parts are affected by the impact, but still things are the same and it still works fine.

      Design/Style

      The touch screen thing is the "in" thing for phones right now and this is the main feature of the phone. The messages, contacts, and menu buttons are at the bottom of the first screen. Other features, like games, galleries and downloaded apps, can be seen on the next pages of the screen. There is a Samsung apps store, where you can download directly to the phone the games and apps you like, some are free, some you have pay for it. This is a simple looking phone and it works good for me.

      Price

      For me it is affordable and worth my money. I can play the games I want, connect to FB, twitter and surf the net.

      Down side

      Everything is fine except the alert sound for messages and call. Even if you put it in a maximum volume the sound is still poor, I have to put it in a vibrate mode just to know I have a message or someone is calling.

      Like I've said, it is a good alternative for Iphone, if you don't have the budget yet , you can Samsung Galaxy Y.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Scrabble

      Scrabble is a good family bonding game and at the same time a very good mind game. The main goal of the game is to be able to get the highest score after all the tiles or letters have been used. Every tiles have a corresponding points and those points can be doubled or tripled, it depends on the square where they are placed on the board. Plus the words that you put can also be doubled or tripled, again it depends on the square where they placed on the board. It doesn't mean that the longer the words are the highest the points are, it depends on the points of the letters you used and where you put them on the board. The more challenging thing is, those letters that is barely used in words have the highest points, like the Q, Z, and X. This game can be played 2-4 players, alternately they will put the words using the tiles and after that they have to get another tiles in the pouch without looking or choosing a tiles, it depends how many letters did you use. Add all the points of the letters plus the bonus points on the board and that will the your score, just make sure that it has to be intertwined with the other words on the board.

      Our Experience

      My family have been playing this board game for a long time now, we don't have any board game here in our house but this one. My father bought this for us because he likes the concept which is to have a very broad vocabulary words. But we didn't thought about it, we play this because its a very nice bonding board game.

      This game can also used as a competitive one, when my sister was in high school she joined a school competition in scrabble. She is a very good player, she knows how and when to used the letters or tiles to get the highest scores. It was a good game, she got to bring home the trophy.

      Well me, I tried to join but I got easily eliminated..LOL that's why I got contented with just playing it with my family. This game is a very good board game, you will simply enjoy it.

        The king is dead.

        This review is about a man whom right now is making people all over the world cry and sad. Maybe for some his just an artist but for some he serves to be an inspiration.

        I can't really say that I grow up listening to Michael Jackson songs, when I was born his already making big in the field that he was in. I saw his video when I was in high school, I was 15 years old, I saw him doing a signature dance move, the MOONWALK. That was the time I started to read and know who Michael Jackson is. Beat it was the first song that I got to fully listen to his music, it really blow me away. Since then I can really say that I became a Michael Jackson fan.

        Michael is really one talented man and people like him is not made, they are born with it. He has this talent to entertain and passion to do his craft. He deserves all the fame that he had, all the recognition that was given to him and he really deserves to be called the King of POP. He made songs that made us dance, songs that made us fall in love and songs that will inspire.
        I don't have any personal encounter with him but when I heard that his dead, I really got sad and when I saw people crying I can't help but cry too. I don't know if I'm just being a fan for crying or maybe I feel bad that he died without seeing how many people loves him and admire him.

        My sister said that half of Michael's life is fame and half of it is shame. I agree with her, maybe he can't really handle the FAME that he has that time. I always believe that too much of everything is bad, and that time everything that Michael Jackson has is too much. Too much wealth and power, if these two are in the palm of your hand at that age, (well during that time he was in his early 20's) you will do things that you like without any hesitation. You think that all that you do is right and you don't really care what people will say.

        I admire him as an artist, his music, being a fashion icon but things got bad with regards to his personal life and life style too. We don't really know how he handled his private life, with his family, friends and people who worked for him. He already pay for it, the wrong things that made him look crazy and just a laughing clown to the eye of the people. Now that his dead lets just remember him as a person who entertain us, amazed us and a person who made us scream for more.

          Kung Fu Panda

          PLOT

          Kung Fu Panda is a story of Po, a big fat Panda who is so into Kung Fu. Po is living with his father goose and they have a restaurant that sells noodles. The place is called Valley of Peace which is guarded and protected by Furious Five, they are consists of Tigress, Monkey, Mantis, Viper and Crane. They are great warriors trained by Master Shifu and great Master Oogway. Before the Furious Five was formed, Master Shifu had a student named Tai Long, he trained him very well and became one great student. But Master Oogway didn't give Tai Long the Dragon Scroll because of darkness and anger in his heart. Tai Long got mad and try to hurt his Masters but he failed and he ended to be in jail. Soon Tai Long will escape, that's why a tournament will be held to find the Dragon Warrior and give him the Dragon Scroll that will gave him limitless power. The Dragon Warrior will defend the Valley from Tai Long's revenge. Now, what will happen if the Dragon Warrior is Po and not one of the Furious Five? Po doesn't even know how to fight. Watch this movie to know what happen and how Po became the Dragon Warrior.

          Voices of

          Jack Black-Po
          Dustin Hoffman-Master Shifu
          Angelina Jolie-Tigress
          Jackie Chan-Monkey
          Lucy Liu-Viper

          Favorite Line in the movie

          Yesterday is history, tomorrow's mystery, today is a gift that's why it is called PRESENT

          Favorite Scene

          When Master Shifu trained Po and Master discover that food will help him motivate Po.

          -Master Oogway

          The Whole Movie

          It is about believing yourself and be someone that you want to be. Sometimes things will not go our way because people will judge us, the way we look and the way we live. But at the end of the day and you have proven yourself to them, they will admire you and will be an inspiration to others.

          Opinion

          I love animated movies, I think they are very hard to do because they have to be done perfectly base on the characters and the story. What I really love about animation is the good morals that you will get, mainly because the target audience are the kids. I'm not saying that "real" movies don't have but what I am saying is in animation it's more visible and more obvious. Maybe I'm just making excuses for being child like. 

          Anyway, Kung Fu Panda is one entertaining movie. I like the characters they are cute especially Master Shifu, he pretends to be a cool guy here. The story is simple, but I think the whole animation thing is very hard to do because there's a lot of "character actions" that is fast, like the fight scenes and the training scenes. We all know that animation is base on drawings, so imagine how those talented animators did this one hell of a project. The success of the movie is I guess the proof that this movie is a good one and worth for your money.

            Advantages

            Blogging is fun

            Blogger.com is a webhosting site that is free and affiliated with the biggest search engine Google.com. The site is about blogging or just about discussing anything that you want, and also informing people of something that you know. It's a personalize site that you can design and manage, you can put videos, photos and many more. You can choose what kind of template you want or look that you want, put your own blog name that is related to the things that you want to write, just as long as it's not obscene or promote nudity.

            What's good about Blogging?

            Well for me blogging is a powerful thing because it's a way of educating people about things that you know will help them. It is also a good outlet of the things you feel, at times we feel like were alone, and through blogging people will read the things that you feel and we found some who share the same sentiments. This is one influential thing today because it can reach people anywhere in the world, just sitting in front of your pc or laptop you can send your message to the world. For me, you have to be a responsible blogger because words can easily hurt anyone or it can ruin someone's life.

            Google financial opportunity.

            Another good thing about this is, they pay you with your effort, this is thru Google Adsense, these are advertisement that they post base on things that you blog or write. They will base it if someone clicks the advertisement, mostly they are links to the product and services of the said advertisement. During the time that I applied, they can send the money through paypal account and through bank. They can cancel your account if you violated their rules and once this thing happened to you, they will ban you forever.

            My experience

            I have a blogger account for about 9 mos. now, and it's like a personal site(mayasreport). I post things about my family, personal experiences, and things that I love to do. You will find it boring but for me it's a fun thing to do, and it help me a lot to say what I feel.

              Disadvantages

              Twittering at twitter

              Twitter is another social networking site in a very different and I guess much updated way. Ok, at first I don't get the sense of the site but because it is well "promoted" by Hollywood stars, I got the point of twittering. It's like a diary which you can write what you are doing, what's on your mind or anything that you will do. It can be updated every minute, that's why they say it can be addicting, and I also think this is one way of promoting and advertisement.

              LOOK

              Not as good looking site as myspace or facebook, it is a simple looking one that is very direct and easy to access. The majority of the page is for things that you want to write and it is also the page where you can see what are the people you are following is doing. At the right side of the page, the people who are following you are displayed, in this side also if you uploaded a picture, it will appear here.

              Who are twittering at twitter?

              Some people that I read have a "real" Hollywood twitter account are, Ashton Kutcher, Demi Moore, Ellen De Generes, Mc Hammer, and P. Diddy. Ashton is very much into twitter, it was reported that he is the king of this because he beaten the (I think not sure) CNN twitter account on numbers of people following them. About Ellen, the account is Ellen Degeneres show, I watched her show on youtube and she always mention about twitter and her account, Mc Hammer and P. Diddy guested in her show and they said they have an account on twitter and they enjoy doing their stuff there.

              MY account

              I have a twitter account because I am using it for some writing stuff, I can promote my article here. Yes, this is another good way of promoting your band, music, and anything that you want. I'm not into this right now I just visit my account once in a while. I have 29 followers and I follow 27 people, the recent one that I followed is Ellen Degeneres Show.

                slicethepie.com

                Slicethepie.com is another money earning opportunity online, but this site is all about music and artistry. I got to know this site here in dooyoo, I read a review and when check it out I really find it really cool. It's cool because I love music, it's I think part of my life or part of our life. Lets be honest, everyone has their own favorite song and everytime we hear this song we can't help but sing with it. Anyway back to my topic, so this site is for those people who are really into serious music. I'm not familiar with how musicians or artists join or upload their music but all I know is, as for people who joined as a scout has a chance to review and rate their music.

                My Patience..

                Well, I've been a member of the site for about 5 months now and I've only been active for about 2 months only, and why? Because I'm not that patient to listen to music that I only heard for the first time. Ok I said I love music, but I think artistry for music is not in me, maybe I appreciate music that I know I can relate with. The thing about this, is, all the artist here are new and they are really good artist, they have potentials to be big. From rap, house music, rock or country they have here, and it's all over the world.

                Earning money..

                As you review songs your level of earning money will increase, it will start as vouchers then 5p, then 7p, and the highest is 10p. I never reaches the money thing because I was never really active, but I read in forums there saying it took her about 2000 plus reviews before reaching the 10p value.

                Helping new artist

                What I like about the site is you have the chance to help artist launch or finance their album. Your first earnings would be vouchers and those vouchers would be useful to invest on artist that you believe have a potential to be successful or deserving to be invested. They have to raise 15000 pounds to be able for them to launch the album and in return the person who invests will get financial benefit if the said album will sell. I really believe in helping these artists, in fact after visiting the site the other day, I found out that the one that I invested in is now doing his album.

                Final thought

                Recommended to everyone especially to those who has this artistry in music, I think they have this tolerance in listening to new sounds. As for me maybe I will visit but I think I won't be that active right now.

                  Advantages

                  Disadvantages

                  Picture editing.

                  GIMP stands for General Image Manipulation Program or GNU Image Manipulation Program, it's a free software that you can use to enhance, edit or play with your pictures. It's like an Adobe Photoshop thing but it's cheaper of course and I think there's much more difference in terms of sophistication and application. Just type the word GIMP and click the link where you can download the program and it's done, small size program 84.96MB. It has so many versions now because of some adjustment or enhancement to make the program much easier to use. Right now I got the 2.6 version, which is I think is the latest version and this version is less complicated than the other versions. This supports JPG, GIF and BMP.

                  Things to do with GIMP

                  Change color background.
                  Picture Resizing
                  Fix color balance
                  Animation
                  Signatures
                  Logos
                  Picture enhancement and many more

                  Look

                  Gimp has a cute logo, I'm not sure what animal it is but it's a cute one. Once you open GIMP 3 boxes will appear these are the menu boxes that contains all the functional tools. The main menu, the toolbox and the paths, layers ,channels menu, these are the boxes that will appear. In the toolbox, all the cool tools are there, like brushes, eraser, scale tool and others, while in the paths, layers, channels, menu this is like the edit box and the final look of your project will appear here.

                  My experience

                  I love playing with this program, I already did so many things with it. I was looking for a program that will help me edit some of our photos, the digital once of course, because some have dark spots and I also want to learn how to do those editing stuff with pictures. This is not as sophisticated as Adobe Photoshop but I can say that this is a very helpful program for those who just want to edit digital photos that they have. Mainly the program is free but you can donate to help those people who make or "share" adjustments with the program. To learn about it or get some tutorials, go to youtube.com and just type GIMP and things regarding what to do with this program will appear.

                  Another thing this is what I really got with this program, you can't really say now what is genuine photo is, especially those in magazine.

                    The comeback..

                    The show

                    Who wants to be a millionaire? was first shown here (Philippines) way back year 2000, it lasted for 2 years. The show is originally from the UK and has a lot of version in different countries. It is a quiz show that will test your IQ and your strategy on how to use your lifelines or help line. There's only 3 lifelines which is phone a friend,50-50 and ask the audience, 3 lifelines that is truly helpful for the contestants. Of course these are the old version lifelines and what I read is the show has so many changes. To make it more challenging, every correct answer the price money will increase, from 1000 pesos to a million. It is more confusing because they are multiple choice questions, but if ever you can just take the money if you don't really know the answer and you already used all your lifelines, because once you incorrectly answer the question you will go home with nothing. The most memorable phrase of the show is " Final Answer?", it's the question for the contestant whenever they have to give or lock down their answers. The show is so big that it became a PC game.

                    The Comeback

                    The show lasted only 2 years here and so many game shows has pop out that got its idea or maybe inspiration from the show. Of course not as identical as the show, but its like the trivia thing and the strategy style is totally the shows trademark. Now I think because of the movie Slumdog Millionaire and its big success the show will be back here. We don't know yet what are the changes are but base on its publicity it will offer a much bigger price.

                    Opinion

                    The show became really big here when it was introduced and like I've said it started the quiz show here, I honestly enjoyed watching the show. It's intellectually stimulating, not a typical game show that time. What I remember is, it's unique because they have this lifeline that will help the contestant answer the questions. Who wants to be a Millionaire? Revolutionize game shows, remember Wheel of fortune, Name That Tune and Family Feud, they are all old school game shows. These game shows are still good and entertaining, but Who Wants to be a Millionaire? change game shows into a more intellectual thing. But there's a tendency that it will bored you, specially the first few questions because it's like the easy round or the warm up round. The thing is sometimes the most basic questions are the hardest one to answer and those I think difficult are mostly the easiest. Right now I'm excited for its comeback, I want to see the changes and of course I want to hear again the phrase "Final answer?"

                      Spongebob Squarepants

                      The show

                      Spongebob Squarepants is a kid show starring Spongebob a sponge, his friend Patrick a starfish, and Squidward obviously a squid. Mainly the story is about Spongebob and Patrick being dumb, all they do is mess with the people and do crazy stuff. Because they are creatures from the sea the setting of this show is underwater, the whole animation features corals, seaweeds and all the things related with sea creatures. Spongebob works at a restaurant called Krusty Krab with Mr Krab as his boss and Squidwards as his co worker. Patrick, Spongebob's bestfriend is just like him, clumpsy, slow, and most of all they turn simple things in a disaster. But because they are best of friends they always count on to each other, and the result, much bigger problem.

                      Why I like Spongebob?

                      I think who ever created him has a such created mind why? Who would ever think a sponge to be something like him. Well obviously most cartoon characters are inspired by animals or anything that we can say cute and adorable. No one would ever say a sponge is cute or it's very adorable except if the shape is truly unique, I guess the creator of Spongebob got his inspiration from that. It really paid off because Spongebob Squarepants is now one of the most watched cartoon show wordwide.

                      My opinion

                      I like Spongebob because his unique and I like him and Patrick together. I'm not a kid anymore but when I have a chance to watch them I feel like one. I can't help but laugh with their craziness and what's worst is, sometimes I never even notice that I was smiling alone just watching them. I have an email address spongehead and I got it when I did an email account after watching that show, that's the first name or word that came into my head that time. I'm not an avid fan of the show its just that I find it really unique and creative, with the idea and the theme.

                        Advantages

                        Disadvantages

                        Another social networking site

                        The Site: friendster.com

                        Friendster is a social networking site or an online community site that became big here in our country before we got to know about facebook and myspace. It will connect you to your friends, to your friends friends and so on, as long as you allow them to be your friends they will gain access to your account. Just like any other community site you have to register to have an account, provide a valid email address and a password. You can do anything to your account, put cool layouts and backgrounds, put music on it and you can even put videos, or you just send cool testimonials to your friends. They also have photo albums to put your pics, you can have it private or public. You can have your account private to be able to monitor who are those people who wants to make friends with you.They also have a blogging feature and now they have 3D stuff which I haven't tried yet, you can also use this site to earn money.

                        MY account

                        Friendster.com is my first social networking account, I had it for about 4 years now. I decided to join because that was the time I was graduating from college and this will serve as a connection to my college friends. I had my background change many times, I had videos many times and I maintain only friends that I know and some relatives. I don't usually have more friends in any of my account (facebook,myspace) , I don't know why but I don't want my account to look crowded with friends...LOL

                        Advantage:
                        Communication with long lost friends.
                        Compensation tool.
                        You can change backgrounds easily.

                        Disadvantage:
                        False accounts.
                        Communication tool is small. (like inbox alert etc.)

                        OPINION

                        Right now this is my main social site because lots of my friends are here, I read that this site is famous mostly here in Asia. I joined other site because I need it for some promotional writings, it may not be as popular as other site but I'm more comfortable with friendster.

                          The fight against two great boxers

                          Exactly a week from now the biggest boxing fight of 2009 will happened, it's between Filipino pride Manny "Pacman" Pacquaio and English man Ricky "The Hitman" Hatton. Two of the best boxer of today's generation, its entitle The battle of the East & West and this will happened on MGM Grand Las Vegas. Right after Pacquiao's fight against De La Hoya, Hatton has been very vocal that he wants Pacquiao to be his next opponent , so as the year 2009 starts, things have been settled. At start there's have been some problems on Pacquaio's part but later on he agreed on the agreement.

                          PACQUAIO
                          48-3-2 36 win s by KO
                          29 yrs. Old
                          General Santos City Philippines
                          Lightweight
                          WBC Lightweight Champion
                          Famous Opponents:
                          Oscar De La Hoya
                          Juan Manuel Marquez
                          Marco Antonio Barrera

                          Manny Pacquiao gain popularity because of his fight against great Mexican boxers, he fought Eric Morales 3 times and he won twice by the way of knock out. Another Mexican boxer is Marco Antonio Barrera, he defeated Barrera twice, one by a knock out and the second one is by unanimous decision. Juan Manuel Marquez is I guess one of Pacquiao's greatest opponent, I saw his last fight against him and he really had a hard time and I think Marquez did had a hard time too. The proof that they really have a tough time fighting each other is, with their two fights no one has been knocked out and it last up to 12 rounds. Pacquiao is under Bob Arum's Top Rank Promotions and Freddie Roach is his boxing coach in all his big fight. After Mayweather announce his retirement from boxing, and after Manny won against Dela Hoya last December, Pacquiao became the Best pound for pound boxer .

                          HATTON
                          30 yrs old
                          Light Welterweight
                          45-1-0 32 Knock outs
                          Manchester, England
                          Famous opponent:
                          Floyd Mayweather Jr.

                          Hatton had a clean record and had never been knocked out, but when he fought Mayweather Jr. he tasted his first defeat and his first knock out. Since then he has been asking for a rematch but his hopes ended when Mayweather Jr. decided to retired from boxing. His fight against Malinaggi is an statement that his back again and his ready to fight anyone, his under Golden Boy Promotions and Floyd Mayweather Sr. is his coach in this fight.

                          OPINION

                          I didn't mean to make this a one sided review thing, but because I'm a Filipino and Pacquaio is one great Filipino fighter and I got to watched every fight that he had, I can say I have so many things to share about him. Regarding about Hatton I only got to know him when he started to talk about Pacquiao, I was able to watch his last fight against Malinaggi and I can say he has a power punch in his arsenals. What makes this fight really exciting is, both figters has the ability to knock each other with one punch, that's why just a week before the fight, promoters announces that the tickets have been sold out.

                          MY BET

                          Of course I'm placing my bet to Manny Pacquaio

                          FORECAST

                          I would say someone will kiss the mat, honestly I don't know who will it be because as I've said both is capable of knocking down their opponents.

                          RESULT!!

                          Its DONE! Pacquaio finished the fight earlier than I expected. Indeed MAnny PAcquaio is the best pound for pound boxer right now. MAbuhay ang mga PinoY!!!

                            Disadvantages

                            all about shinegames.com

                            Shinegame.com is an online game store which I discover when I was looking for interesting games. They have different categories for what kind of pc or laptop you have, like pc games and mac games etc, also they have new games, online games and stuff. They have time management games, puzzle games, sim and fashion games, all of them are cool games that can be downloaded. Some games are Nanny Mania, Virtual farm, Jane's Realty and the Build-a-lot series and I already tried all these games. Actually those games are just trial version and of course you have to pay if you want to play the whole version.

                            This site is just an affiliate of some internet gaming site, Big Fish Games and Playfirst are two of most common. You can buy those games from them through Visa card, American Express card and also through your paypal account. If ever you buy the game whether it is from Big Fish or Palyfirst you will automatically open an account from them, then you will get some access to the games they offer on the site, plus of course you can met some people their who also play online games, its like a social networking thing going.

                            MY PURCHASE

                            About 2 months ago I purchased a game from them and it's from Playfirst and I admit that it was an impulse buying thing. I don't really have a plan to buy the game but the thing is I enjoyed the game and I got hook with it, and because I can only play the trial for an hour I got cut. So I bought the game to continue what I am playing, I use my paypal account here. The process is like this, fill up some forms then provide your paypal email account then after paying they will send you a code through email and receipt, then enter the code to the space provide in the form and you can continue play the game.

                            THE GAME

                            I bought the Ancient Secrets game, it is a mix of adventure hidden puzzle game, I enjoyed it at first but I finished the game for just a day. The mission is to find the hidden treasure, basically your role here is an archeologist so you will deal with artifacts. There are levels but they are represented through different places and villages, like a forest looking village, a urban place and a garden kind of place and others. Sometimes you have to find things, solve puzzles and of course there are tricky games that will really test your patience.
                            When I finished the game I end up thinking I wasted $20 dollars for a this game...LOL

                            MY OPINION

                            If you want to relax and you want to play different kind of games just visit the site, what is good about the site is they don't have this crazy advertisement popping out while you are playing, even if you just downloaded the trial version. But like I said you can only play the game for an hour and sometimes the features of the trial game is not as good or enjoyable as the full version, and the first 15 minutes of the trial version is the tutorial stage, so basically be wise on choosing a game and make sure that it is worth the money.

                              Advantages

                              Disadvantages

                              AMG mp3 touchscreen

                              AMG mp3 was the one I bought at amazon.co.uk, I bought it in a seller that shipped the item here in the Philippines. I read first all the reviews before I decided to buy the mp3 and upon reading it I know the disadvantages and the good side of the gadget. What really made me decided to bought the item is the touch screen features which is for me is cool, I had mp3's before but all of them are just those typical mp3, with those control buttons on the side. Of course the camera is a big factor too and the youtube player thing is I think one good feature of the product too. Ok I'll just have to discuss the design, and some cool stuff about the product.

                              The DESIGN

                              Like the description said, the screen is 2.8 inch which is a good screen, not too small not too big just enough for a touch screen mp3. It doesn't have too many control buttons because the whole control is in the screen itself, the only buttons present are the menu button in the middle, at the left is the minus sign and plus sign in the right side. At the back, is the camera, the logo of AMG and the memory inside the item, the power on/off, earphone hole and the USB connection hole is at the upper portion while at the bottom is memory card slot.
                              Some Features and Functions

                              The MUSIC features

                              All the music that you downloaded would be stored here, once you touch or push the icon the audio lab will appear. In this lab are the all song list, album list, genre and artist list, when you press/touch the all song list the songs will appear and then choose the song you want to play. You can save your song to my favorite if you have a song that you really love to listen to, and you can save the song on "save to power on" to automatically play the song when you turn it on. I don't have the exact song capacity but I think I have more than a hundred songs.

                              The RADIO features

                              I'm happy that it can get all the frequency of all radio station here, I was really having doubts about it. Once you have found a radio frequency you can save it so that it would be easy for you to listen to it.

                              The CAMERA features

                              This is the fun part, pictures are clear and very easy to use. You can just add the pictures stored in your pc and you can also save it on "save to power on", this will make your picture automatically appear once you turn it on. Once you took a picture it will be saved on photos, you can delete and do a slide show of the pictures. About the video, I'm having some problem with it and I'm still trying to feature it out, beside I had this for only a month now.

                              The YOUTUBE features

                              This is awesome, I'm not aware of this at first, but when I read on reviews that you can put a youtube video here I got intrigued. When I got to learn all the things about the gadget I started to put youtube videos, here's the thing you have to get the mp3 converter to transfer the videos. By the way, I have to email the seller to send me the converter, and it was easy to install and easy to use. Once you downloaded the videos just convert and drag and drop it on the mp3. I don't know how many videos can be stored but now I have 7 youtube videos.

                              DISADVANTAGES

                              NO MANUAL

                              The manual is not included in the package it has to be downloaded on the AMG site, but since the site close down I ask the seller to send me the manual and all the stuff needed for the gadget. And this is one big disadvantage for those who is not into gadgets because it would be hard for them to figure it out. As for me I really have to learn all the things about it all by myself, and I have a hard time turning it on because I don't really know how to use it, and luckily I find it in a nasty or shall I say crazy way...LOL As the start I was challenge on finding ways but when I got frustrated I started to get pissed off to AMG and the seller.

                              POOR BATTERY (POSSIBLE)

                              At first this is one problem for me, it will only last for I think less than 90 minutes or 1 ½ hours but when I got to adjust the settings I can actually use it for I think 4 hours and it's less than the time written on the details (it is written that it can last for 6 hours of continuous music and 4 hours for videos). Also I don't know if the charger or the battery itself is the problem but I have a hard time featuring out if it is already full or not because the charger light indicates its full but the mp3 indicates that it is still charging, so the ending, I have to charge it for 8 hours, 4 hours more than the usual.

                              PRESS/TOUCH

                              Don't expect that this is like the ipod touch screen, which really means "TOUCH SCREEN". It is not like that, it just about pressing the screen.

                              ADVICE

                              It is important to read first the reviews written by those people who already used it, so that you will know what to expect about the product. Regarding with this I really read all the reviews and I knew that there is no manual included and I knew some bad side of the product. Also it pays to be someone who wants to discover and learn all by ourselves, you know, figure out things without the help of others. This will make you familiar with the product and you can make all the adjustment that will fit you, trust me you have to be patience regarding this gadget. The most important thing is, you have to learn the setting feature, and don't be afraid to press/touch the things here and use your brain/common sense.

                              OPINION

                              Right now the gadget plays really good, I enjoy it. About the battery life, I can say I'm satisfied now because I don't used it 10 hours a day, if only I'm traveling and when I can't sleep at night. I don't write any advantages because as for me the whole gadget is the best part of it, I'm just enjoying it and I don't think of quality too much because the more you expect the more you will get frustrated if things won't work the way you wanted. And after the "beginners learning process" of the gadget it is now working good. Sometimes its not just about quality its how you use it and how you take care of it.

                                Disadvantages

                                paypal.com

                                I have been writing online for a while now and it is because I want to know how to earn extra income. I discovered how things work and part of this discovery is paypal.com, the online banking system.

                                I remember, I signed up when I started to earn on mylot, when I saw that I am earning, I continue to write and persevere. But I didn't receive my first "paycheck" on mylot, I got it from ciao.com when they are still offering good payment.

                                I don't know how paypal works at that time until I decided to withdraw my money from ciao through paypal. Everything is easy and it took just minutes to transfer my money. There are complete transactions, like, when was the money transferred and the name of the company that transfer the money.

                                The next thing I did is transfer the money to a bank account. I thought it will be difficult for me because I'm not living in the U.S. and I have to open a dollar account. But there are banks now that accepts paypal transfer and I just open an account to them and transfer what I have on paypal.

                                Paypal payment is also accepted on ebay, amazon and anywhere online. I also use mine on buying games, I bought one from big fish and the other one from shockwaves, all the transactions I did appeared on my paypal account, it is like my receipt.

                                Until now I still have my paypal account, every now and then I open it and check if it works. I still receive emails from them for news and updates even if it is been a while since the last time I transfer money.
