Wallepaper photo was taken by me for e-Derm a client of mine. If you pass by NLEX you’ll probably have seen their billboard.
It’s exactly 1 week since Apple replaced my MacBook Pro’s top case. I’m glad that it works and solved my problems. My track pad doesn’t hang, my keyboard is working perfectly.
Special thanks to Nino Pasamonte of Digital Walker an Apple certified center who promptly attend to my needs.
This feels new! Brand spankin new!
Apple just released an update of their Camera Raw Compatibility for some of the previously released digital cameras. The Digital Camera Raw Compatibility Update 2.4 now supports the EOS 5D Mark II, the powershot G10 and many others. The only one left for me is my Panasonic Lumix LX3. The RAW files of the said camera can now be natively viewable in Finder and iPhoto.

Apple is offering free refund, repair of Macbook Pro.
Read below from Apple Support
In July 2008, NVIDIA publicly acknowledged a higher than normal failure rate for some of their graphics processors due to a packaging defect. At that same time, NVIDIA assured Apple that Mac computers with these graphics processors were not affected. However, after an Apple-led investigation, Apple has determined that some MacBook Pro computers with the NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT graphics processor may be affected. If the NVIDIA graphics processor in your MacBook Pro has failed, or fails within two years of the original date of purchase, a repair will be done free of charge, even if your MacBook Pro is out of warranty.
What to look for:

The highly anticipated iPhone 3G will be available on August 22 via Globe Telecom with a disappointing price of the prepaid unit at Php41,000. At this price i will not buy it, its not practical and its not worth the money IMHO. Id probably buy the Nokia e71 instead of this.
