PLDT: We’ll Maintain Sun’s Unlimited Services

Whew. I thought the worst would happen. Sun Cellular will continue to offer unlimited voice and text services even after PLDT completes its investment in Digitel Inc., Sun’s parent company.

At least the unlimited text and calls will still continue. I thought that clients will be in a pinch when this happened because I feared the unlimited service will be scrapped.

And considering that there will only be two major players in the telecom mobile business, I figured they can scrap that unlimited service because even then, clients have no choice.

I read in the Inquirer that earlier this week, top officials of PLDT and JG Summit Inc. had signed an agreement under which PLDT will acquire JG Summit’s shareholdings and other economic interests in Digitel for the sum of P69.2 billion.

Whew, that is a mighty big sum. Anyway … I am just glad that the unlimited service still stands. It is what made me subscribe to them in the first place.

This is good news indeed! What do you think? Share your thoughts.

Japanese Ingenuity

Japan was badly struck by the strong earthquake and it left most places damaged. However, this strip of road took Japanese engineers to fix in 6 days. I forgot where I got this source but I just had to share this with you all.

This stretch of the Great Kanto Highway was completely destroyed by the 9.0 earthquake that struck off the coast of Japan.

Crews from highway repair company NEXCO started to repair the damage on March 17th. By the end of the day on March 23rd, the road was open to traffic and looking good as new. I’d say, that is Japanese ingenuity. I sure would love to have them come over to our country and fix the roads here.

Simon Cowell: Glee Has Changed The Rules

What do you think of Glee, the Fox hit tv show? I think it is a great show that seemingly caught everyone by surprise that it would become a hit. Even Simon Cowell had to agree.

I read this article in CNN and according to Digital Spy, X Factor creator Simon Cowell says the hit Fox show about a high school show choir helped inspire him to bring his British show stateside.

“If somebody said to me five years ago that one of the biggest pop stars or groups in the world was going to be a glee club, I never would’ve believed it,” Cowell said. “What they’ve done with ‘Glee,’ I believe, is that they’ve broken away all boundaries; all shapes, all sizes all mixed together, but it just works.”

On “Glee,” it’s all about the talent, and each glee club character is an individual with different styles. The success of the show speaks volumes, Cowell said.

“It kind of goes against record company thinking… because they like to think in terms of everything’s gotta be perfection,” he said. “But ‘Glee’ changed the rules and that’s part of the reason we are making this show. To prove that actually you shouldn’t have rules for talent…It should be, if you’re talented or if you’re different, you should have a chance to succeed along with anyone else.”

Do you think he is right? Share your thoughts.
