Friendster Blogs from Typepad to WordPress!

Quite amusing, I rant so much about the friendster blog which don’t have any improvements at all since it launched, and here they are, at last, moved a finger in blogs. They’ve migrated from Typepad to WordPress blogging platform. It was in beta earlier this September, and finally launched, which I’m not sure when it did. All I know is that I received a notification through email that I had a pingback from my friendster blog to this blog. =p Perhaps people can start going back from multiply to friendster? I don’t think so, most bloggers will do I guess (wordpress’ SEO is REALLY a big advantage + friendster domain), but some features aren’t polished yet.

I haven’t seen ads yet on my friendster blog, but sooner or later if the blogs gets populated, they’ll surely implement ads — THEIR ads. There’s no way I can customize the theme that I activated on the control panel to insert ads, though the widgets can be accessed, and ads can be inserted there. But I’m not sure if that is allowed. The control panel was kind of similar to ~ probably because it uses the WordPress MU CMS ~ and this migration is only one big step for Friendster.

But ho dear Friendster, you’ve still got a lot of improvements to do! XD


Macbook Dilemma

I’ve been really itching to buy a Macbook…. aaaaaarrrgghhhhh! okay, breaaathhhe.. *inhale ~~~ *exhale~~~~

I’ve been eavesdropping on the Apple Market and there’s a rumor that Apple would be releasing soon within this year an aluminum Macbook. As we all know, all Apple notebooks were really pricey. As soon as it will be released, it would take a month or more for the new product to be available here in the Philippines. And by that time, the price of the older models (*though not that really old, only outdated, heh) would surely drop ~ and probably the price drop could only have little differences from the original market price. Apple computers are truly expensive. Going to the main Apple site, the big 3.06GHz of iMac might be “wowing” you ~ including the price. Heh.

Anyway, if the new Macbook would surely be released probably by August, then there’s no harm in saving up while waiting. Crossing my fingers, hopefully I could save and nothing would come up in between for emergencies. And oh, nope… its not for the new Macbook, its for the outdated Macbook or Macbook Pro.

Oh wait, my inner self was talking…

Hay naku, ambisosya talaga! Alam mo bang maraming nagugutom sa Pilipinas?

Really, a dilemma.
