I just got hold of a new 2nd gen Apple TV courtesy of a friend who bought if from a U.S. Apple Store. At first, I wasn’t really keen on getting this Apple device since I knew then that it requires a good Internet connection to effectively stream movies from your MacBook to an HDTV. But when this friend of mine told me that she already bought the Apple TV, I became pretty excited to get it.
So you’re buying Apple’s magical device from the Philippines Apple Online Store? You’ve probably seen several iPad accessories also made available today. Before you to take a plunge into buying these iPad accessories, here are some tips that will help you decide whether to get those iPad accessories or not.

All orders comes with free shipping and is scheduled to be deliverd in 3 to 5 days. So if you place your order now, you can still receive your iPad just before Christmas. So, how cheap are these iPad being sold anyway? Hit the jump for the schedule of iPad prices.
Here’s another proof that the iPad is indeed coming to Manila the official way. If you check out the Philippine Apple Online Store, you’d now see the iPad listed as one of the products on the main page. This means that the Apple Store is now preparing to offer the iPad, most probably by Friday also.
Just got a word from Digital Hub, an official Apple Retailer in Manila that the iPad will be available this week (tentatively Friday, Dec. 19). Yes, it took this long before Apple’s magical device reaches our beloved island “officially.” For those who didn’t bother to source out the iPad from the grey market and other means and opted to wait for the official release, I’m telling you right now – it’s definitely worth the wait. You wouldn’t believe how much the iPad’s SRP would be once it’s available locally.
Guess what is the fastest rising search term on Google Zeitgeist for the Philippine market? JEJEMON! What a shocker, right? Why are we so engrossed with “Jejemon” anyways? Interestingly, the second fastest rising query was “iPad.” I guess many are searching Google to find out when the iPad will be released locally.
If you’re like me who “lives on the internet,” so to speak – you’ve got to watch this video put up by Google. It’s the annual Google Zeitgeist, and for 2010 Google decided to create a Zeitgeist year-end video. It’s cool and if you’ve been living on the web for the past year, you’d feel kind of nostalgic while watching this as i did. Hit that read more link before you can watch the Google Zeitgeist video.
Just got this cool Green Lantern decal for my 11.6-inch MacBook Air. I’ve been wanting to have one of these for my MBP but it was too costly to order it from Etsy.com. So when I found out that one member of Philmug Forum is selling these decals, I immediately ordered one for my MBA since I rarely bring my 13-inch MBP anyway.
Just right on schedule, Google finally unveiled the Google Chrome OS Notebook. It’s really not yet a full mass-market notebook but more of a prototype which is aimed for Chrome app developers. Based on its current look, if Google wants to mass-market this notebook, it better do something to enhance its look – in other words it looks ugly. Even its name, CR-48 Notebook sounds too techie.
All of a sudden, Google announces the much awaited follow up to the Google Nexus One and this time it’s simply called the NEXUS S! In case you’re wondering why the “S,” it’s simply because the phone is being manufactured by Samsung. In fact, the Nexus S takes its design, form factor and features from the Samsung Galaxy S phone series.
