No Warm Hello for Ello, the Newest Social Platform in Town

Have you signed up for the invitation-only network, Ello? You’ve probably heard about it, what with your friends saying it’s the next Facebook. Maybe it’s because of these great expectations that I’m not really warming up to Ello.

ElloSorry, Ello, there’s no warm hello to you coming from me – at least, not right now.

Royqueen Releases Suplado Tablet + Headphone Giveaway!

Wait, say what now? A Suplado tablet? Yes, that's exactly what it's called according to Royqueen, the snazzy Philippine tech company that thought of doing something radically different for a change. And yes, their wild idea seems to be working.


FYI: We are giving away stuff to all you techies out there, from iOS apps to Royqueen speakers and headphones! Details in this post - they're coming up in a bit, I promise!

Suplado Tablet by Royqueen: Daring to be Different

Formerly focused on selling computer games, Royqueen has since expanded, selling speakers, headphones, and tablets to a more tech-savvy market. After witnessing the Suplado phenomenon take off with the Suplado Tips book series (penned by comedian and FHM columnist Stanley Chi), Royqueen decided to join the bandwagon.

Stanley Chi for RoyqueenStanley Chi is the new face for Royqueen's Suplado Tablet. Who else is there who can pull off being suplado and be loved for it?

To complete their unorthodox campaign, Royqueen asked Chi to be their brand ambassador. (Chi's success with books didn't end with the Suplado Tips series; his latest book, entitled Men Are From QC, Women Are From Alabang made it to the National Bookstore Top 10 Bestsellers List this year.)

Excited to join the giveaway? You’re gonna have to read the rest of this post!
