I have an internet problem: I had my Sky Broadband disconnected because of consistently poor service, and PLDT hasn’t been active in processing my new DSL application. Desperate to get a reliable internet connection in the meantime, I turned to Globe.
One of the better yet least talked about flagship smartphones of 2016 was the HTC 10. While there wasn’t anything wrong with it, the all-metal handset was just there. HTC wants to change that with a new series that’ll hopefully get people to talk about it more.

New Year celebrations have come and gone, my dear millennials, and with that comes fitness resolutions which (historically) don’t even last as long as Kim Kardashian’s social media hiatus (Yes, Kim K. is back on Instagram and maybe it’s time you up your selfie game, too).
