MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – iPhone and iPad owners in the Philippines are reporting a major glitch with Apple’s latest operating system update.
Hundreds of Apple loyalists told The Adobo Chronicles that when they updated their operating system to the latest IOS 14.4, something weird happened when their gadgets automatically reset.
Lo and behold, their iPhones and iPads were now operating under the new Android OS 12!
Apple techies are still trying to figure out what happened and are looking at the possibility that Google’s China software operations hacked that of Apple in California.
Filipinos who experienced the surprising phenomenon are, however, not complaining. Many actually prefer the Android OS to operate on their Apple gadgets.
Neither Apple nor Google have issued any statement on this development.
MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Enterprising individuals have invented gadgets and accessories that could turn smart phones into pedometers, heart and blood pressure monitors, printers, and even polaroid cameras.
But Pinoys are not left behind when it comes to ingenuity.
A 23-year-old Filipino student from Baguio City has just applied for a patent for his new invention — a bluetooth accessory that converts smart phones into cassette recorders. He said he was inspired but a Facebook ad he saw about a new gadget that converts smart phones into polaroid cameras:
Now, you don’t have to worry about losing music you have downloaded from Spotify. You can instantly transfer them into a cassette tape, for playing on your great grandparents cassette tape recorders!
It’s really a big challenge coping up with technology these days!
MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – One of the reasons Mayor Isko Moreno is not running for Philippine President in 2022 is because he has grand plans for Manila — more ambitious than the dolomitization of Manila Bay or the construction of subways.
Moreno recently unveiled his plan to make the nation’s capital fully airconditioned, putting it in direct competition with Baguio City, the Philippines’ cool weather summer capital.
The Mayor told The Adobo Chronicles that the construction of Manila’s first giant air-conditioning unit — the size of a 69-storey building — will begin immediately (see photo of model unit).
Manila’s temperature during its hottest month of May averages at 29 degrees celsius or 84 degrees fahrenheit.
