Swabeng Thoughts: Flickr's new design and free 1 TB of storage

If you were given a free 1 Terabyte (1TB) of free storage online, would you say no? 

As Yahoo announced its acquisition of Tumblr for $1.1 Billion, they have also shown Flickr users its redesigned lay-out and a big upgrade on each users storage. Yes, each Flickr user will have up to 1 Terabyte of storage. That means more than half a million pictures (on a 6.5 megapixel) can be stored on your account. 

Previous users (free) are allowed of up to 300MB worth of photos in a month, but today that will not be the case anymore. Photo-addicts will rejoice to this good news from Flickr as they can upload without limits (except that you can only have 1 TB of free space). Though the thing is its not ad-free. 

If you upgrade for $50 a year, your account would be ad-free. If you want to double your storage space (to 2 TB), you have to shell-out $500 a year. But heck, can you fill out 1TB quickly?  I'm pretty sure a lot of photobloggers would be delighted with the news. XD

You could read more on Petapixel, PopPhoto and DPreview.

Well I need to sort some old photos on my external hard drive to upload them all. XD

I guess I need to start uploading ASAP. XD

Swabeng Thoughts: Things I should have done before settling down

I've been thinking lately about writing this one yet a lot of things have been clouding through my head on what to do first and what to do before first.

Well, I'm very fine if you ask me and so far, work keeps my finances and my learning busy. Though for the past thirteen years, there are things that I should have done before getting married eventually.

1. Travel:  For some reason, I was so contented going from one mall to another during weekends and holidays since I started working. I've been a constant fixture on arcades and movie houses that it never dawned to me the essence of traveling around the country. It is only during our honeymoon in 2009 that I got to ride a plane and a ship going southbound. And from there, I join some groups on a one-day photo-expedition every once in a while. If only I started traveling the country in my 20's, I could have cover more ground and maybe started photography way early.

2. Continuous Learning: After passing the board exam in 2001, I was hoping to continue my education by taking-up a master's degree. However, it got derailed with a relationship gone sour back then that it took me a few years to pick-up Cisco. Though I got my certification (CCNA) in 2008, looking for a Cisco-related job was very challenging during those times as most companies prefer experience over youth. Now both my certification and my license are expired years back. I hope I could save more than enough to retake my CCNA and renew my ECE License in the next few years.

3. Agressive Job Hunting: When I started teaching at a school in Las Pinas, I got so complacent that I feel that I have a secured tenure> I stayed in the academe for close to 3 years without mapping my career path. I have wasted my opportunity for almost a year before landing to a new job. Then, I landed  a call-center job that took me three and a half years before realizing that I wanted to venture the IT industry. I have been in this industry for close to 3 years now. What if I ventured into IT early in my career?

4. Saving-up: After getting my first paycheck, it started a habit which I made sure not to get hungry even if I dine at expensive restaurants all by myself. If only I did BYOB (bring your own baon), I may have saved a million pesos starting from the first day of work up to now. Thank God, here in the office, I don't have to spend a single centavo just to get myself something to eat. This would be a good start for me to save again and save more. 

When you're young, you're bound to commit one mistake after another. I did that a couple of times before realizing how beautiful life is. Well, time for dinner. XD

Summer's Hotter with these May Covers

Who says its getting cooler after April?

1. FHM Philippines (Ryza Cenon): Its about time this girl has to escape her teeny-booper covers and go forward to a more daring and more mature one. Get ready for a Level 3 Hot Issue.

FHM Philippines May 2013

2. Esquire Philippines (Heart Evangelista): Its election time and what a way for her to celebrate it is to show support for her beau, I mean her. Its not often that you see her that way. XD

Esquire Philippines May 2013

3. Rogue (Katrina Razon): I Don't have any idea who she is but she looks fil-foreigner to me. This issue could be another food issue as they have an insider feature on eating in Manila plus how Pinoy Cuisine is conquering the Big Apple. I'll watch out for it.

Rogue May 2013

As of this writing, I have yet to see what Playboy Philippines and UNO has for the boys. Next update in the coming weeks.
