Admit it or not, a post-worthy slash like-worthy selfie requires a great deal of time and effort. It takes a good number of minutes looking for decent lighting, finding a good background, getting a right angle, and finally selecting a filter before hitting the share button. Sometimes, you settle with one that’s too dark or a bit blurred or has someone cropped out of the frame. Now the question is: how do you best capture selfie-worthy moments at an arm’s length?

The days of so-so selfies will soon be gone as the new Samsung Galaxy J Series usher in the new age with an upgraded J-Fie experience.

The special J-Fie features make it effortless to achieve a flawless shot whenever and wherever. You can take your J-Fies in dark conditions with the LED Front Flash, make the whole gang fit with the wide angle selfie feature, make sure that no fingers are blocking the photo and that challenging angles are made easy by using the palm selfie feature, and instantly touch up and look fab by simply sliding various beauty face options.

Style is all about authenticity, about staying true to one’s image, and seeing how that image is projected upon others. It's all about being effortless in one's projection: confidence and flaunting it become natural, once you know the things that make you strong. Technology giant Acer communicate such style: the simple elegance in product aesthetics, without resorting to cheap tricks or gaudy gimmickry.

Great moments like a movie date or an afternoon bonding with a loved one with this stunning find which converts into a movie-and-audio-friendly tablet with a simple flip; a gamer buddy in the Aspire V Nitro, which boasts a 17-inch full HD screen and NVidia Geforce GTX graphics; a workmate in the Aspire Switch 12, which changes from desktop to tablet to notebook depending on your workspace; or the ultimate in looks in the Aspire S7 Ultrabook, with its white, Gorilla Glass-reinforced body. Consider all these as effortless flaunting, coupled with extensive functionality, for the technology lifestyle of today.

This is the very essence of the latest Acer Premium campaign dubbed, #FLAUNTit. And who better to represent this statement than the exceptionally beautiful, Liza Soberano.

Catapulted to fame by her role as leading lady Agnes in the hit television series "Forevermore," Soberano joins the Acer family in promoting the latest campaign of the higher-end line of Acer’s top-quality devices.

"They’re featuring new products in their lineup in a couple of months. I’ve been using some of them—the Acer Aspire S7 Ultrabook, in particular. It’s very thin, pretty, and very stylish," explained Soberano.

In addition to the assortment of said Acer premium products are the laptops Aspire V15, Aspire R13, Revo One, Aspire Z3-710, C205 (Projector), S1383wHne (Projector), and S277HK  (Monitor).

"With our Premium line, we want to communicate the power and looks of Acer products. With their top-of-the-line specs, as well as their sophisticated looks, they are ideal for the technology needs and wants of those people living a high-end and fast-paced lifestyle," said Manuel Wong, Managing Director for Acer Philippines.

Part of the #FLAUNTit campaign is a new video, which was launched last night during a grand Acer event held at the SM Aura Convention Center in taguig City, featuring the flawless beauty of Soberano, proving just how effortless style can truly be.

For Soberano, she said that she hopes the new #FLAUNTit video will allow her fans to see a new side of her, an image different from the modest persona of Agnes.

“You will see a fiercer me and also a goofy me at the same time. And people will open up to the fact that I can be more than just pa-sweet and everything."

But she added, “People aren’t used to it when I go glam out and wear makeup and all. Actually, I really like those fierce, sophisticated portrayals. But I also like to enjoy my youth, and the pa-sweet image that comes with it.”

Looks, style, and confidence are made to be displayed, so with this new campaign, go ahead and #FLAUNTit!

Alphabet spells new directions for Google

It's official! There is a bigger company than Google now. Well sort of.

Google announced that it is creating a parent company called Alphabet Inc, it was not intending to build products and brands under that name. Go to their official website to know the reason on this as explained by Larry Page, Google co-founder and CEO of the new entity.

In addition to the hundreds of small businesses with Alphabet in their names, there are currently 103 trademark registrations in the United States that include the word "alphabet" or some close variation, according to a database search of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.

The registrations include computer games, clothing labels, furniture, toys, all manner of children's books, as well as Alphabet Vodka and the Alphabet City Brewing Co in New York City. There is also the ever-familiar Alpha-Bits breakfast cereal.

Most of these brands have little to do with Google's newer ventures to be housed under the Alphabet umbrella, including its divisions working on smart contact lenses and driverless cars.

In his announcement, Page said: "(W)e are not intending for this to be a big consumer brand with related products — the whole point is that Alphabet companies should have independence and develop their own brands."

The name was chosen, Page said, because the alphabet represents language, one of humanity's most important innovations, and is the "core of how we index" in a Google Internet search.

This will definitely spell new directions for Goggle. Let's see how this will shape the future of cyberspace as well.

Acer Switch: 2-in-1 laptop for students

The market is now saturated with quality hybrid models that can double as a laptop and a tablet. With models rolling out one after the other, the competition now lies on how well-built one is for its particular target market.

Performance, hardware, and features are top-of-mind when gauging a gadget’s quality. Additionally, how well it integrates with the user’s activities is also a major consideration.
“If it is only a question of quality, there are a lot of brands out there that can claim this,” says Manuel Wong, General Manager of Acer Philippines. “A good model, however, should fit one’s activities in all aspects, from its performance to design”

The Aspire Switch 10 E is the latest hybrid model from Taiwan manufacturer Acer that is a good example of such model. Easy on the pocket, portable, versatile, and stylish, the Switch 10 E is a promising take on a gadget especially designed for students.

The Aspire Switch 10 E is a no-nonsense device when it comes to versatility. Equipped with the Acer Snap Hinge™, this model can be easily switched into four modes: notebook, tablet, tent, and display. The tablet can be easily detached and the hinge feature assures zero wobbling when merged with the keyboard.

Performance-wise, the model can easily provide for the computing needs of any student. The Aspire Switch 10 E, which runs on Windows 8.1, is already pre-installed with the Microsoft Office suite. Its Intel quad-core processor, 2GB memory, and 32 GB of Flash Memory let its users switch from program to program without any risk of lagging or crashing. This model also packs enough juice with its 12-hour battery life suitable for work and play.

Additionally, this Acer hybrid is also equipped with a data protection element with its Acer SwitchLock™ feature. All HDD data is automatically locked and protected whenever the tablet is pulled from its keyboard counterpart which also serves as the HDD key. All data can only be unlocked once the tablet is joined with its keyboard dock.

The Aspire Switch 10 E also has a strong suit of display and audio features. Students who need to constantly access videos and audio files will definitely appreciate its HD screen IPS technology and dual speakers that deliver crystal clear images and sound respectively.
Of course, durability is another top concern for users with such a dynamic lifestyle. Acer has this well-covered in the Switch 10 E with its Gorilla™ Glass that protects the LCD from scratches. The screen is also equipped with the Acer VisionCare™ feature which protects the eyes from damage caused stress-causing blue light.

In terms of design, this newest model from the Aspire Series is everything a student could want. Available in a range of trendy colors, it is a stylish, youthful upgrade of its predecessor, the Aspire Switch 10 E. Its textile-patterned finish not only adds a punch to its overall look but also improves grip.

Wong finishes, “Quality is an umbrella term. It should be an all-encompassing characteristic that should include efficiency, versatility, portability, and value for money. All of these, of course, should be in line with the demands of its market.”
