Fon begins beta testing a business Wi-Fi network

This is going to be interesting…

Originally posted on Gigaom:

Crowdsourced Wi-Fi internet service provider Fon plans to add a business component to its largely residential hotspot footprint. On Thursday, Fon launched a global beta program, inviting consumer-facing businesses to install a souped-up version of its Fonera router and offer internet access to Fon members and the general public.

The business network will work a bit differently than the residential one, which is essentially a closed system. Fon residential members, called Foneros, install the Fonera router, which then becomes a node in a hotspot network spanning 13 million nodes worldwide. Any other Fonera has unrestricted free access to the network, as do customers who buy access passes. These new business routers, however, will also be open to the general public for limited use depending on the discretion of the business owner.

For instance, a dentist office could chose to give an hour of free internet to anyone in its…

When will voice-over-LTE matter? When it’s no longer just about voice

Published August 16, 2014 by Dina ^_^

Dina ^_^:

The new era of talking is around our corner than we had expected. Though, it would not be soon, it’s going to take about two years to see the changes come and all that.

Originally posted on Gigaom:

After years of delays, voice-over-LTE finally seems to be making its way into mobile networks and phones. T-Mobile recently announced its entire U.S. LTE network now supports the VoIP technology, while Verizon recently revealed it would begin selling its first 4G-only phones in 2016.

As we purchase new smartphones over the next few years, we’ll find traditional 2G phone calls receding into the past and voice or SMS becoming just another IP service. Today, however, consumers buying new VoLTE phones probably won’t notice much of a difference.

These initial VoLTE rollouts are focused solely on voice, which makes sense given the technology’s name, but apart from making the occasional HD voice call to other VoLTE device owners, the service is going to look – and cost – the same as old-school voice calls.

The real promise of VoLTE isn’t voice, but rather the raft of IP services…

To Billie Joe Armstrong….

Published July 8, 2014 by Dina ^_^

Dear Mr. Armstrong,

I know that you have a busy schedule, but I want you to read this please. Really reconsider what I”m going to tell you.

I”m a fan of you, but not a hard rock like my ex was, if I think if he’s still classified as my ex if he was thinking that not talking in person and breaking up in the message is a really good idea to dump a girl now these days. I know that you really not into technology, but sometimes, the technology could give you a really negative side about it.

Anyhow, the purpose I’m writing this post is that I want to meet you in person. There’s a purpose I want to meet you. I want you to check some songs that I have written because I feel that you should read it specifically. I don’t want other people reading it. I’m a poet/music writer and only a few people have read it. My ex is one of the people who never got the chance to read them. Had planned for him to read them on our one year anniversary, but somehow that couldn’t be done because we broke up, I think is his view, a week or two after his birthday. Worse, is that I bought him all of Green Day’s CD albums, including Demolicious, which took me a while to find it online that was on sale.

What I have to mean about it is that some of the writing that I created was during the time I know him, my best moments with him, before I even started dating, during the time I was dating him, and after the break up. The songs are memories that I keep crying about and I don’t know if I should keep it or not because it reminds me of my special moments I had dearly spent with him. What’s worse is that he was my first and I guess my only boyfriend I will ever experience in life because I don’t want to have another breakup what I gave everything to end up not getting much in the end. I know he tried to give me even the littlest he could, but it never reached what I gave him.

Every time I hear your music now makes me want to cry because there’s some piece of him that is describe in each song that kinda fits him. It’s going to be hard to get over him, especially with y’all songs. We loved to hear it together, especially the American Idiot album. We even went to see the musical as well. It was a really lovely night I have spent it with him…. But really, awesome memories are hard to erase from a breakup.

So please hear my cry for help, if you want to classify it, to read my songs and review it. I would love to hear from you anytime soon. Don’t really matter if it takes you a year to hear this or only a week to hear about it. My email is linked to this word: Serendipity, so contacting me is not going to be that hard. Yeah, I love that word for no damn reason.

In the end, I’m kinda busy myself since I have classes, especially for a college student can’t get everything done in a few days, and work, so my schedule looks tight and I would like to be surprised in the least expected way. Don’t really mind being followed at all; really don’t give a damn of this society now, since we are followed no matter how private we try to become.

Just need you to view them. Just want you to check them out, review it, comment about it, give out your opinion and give me your final saying of what I should do to them. I really don’t know if my songs or poems you want to classify are worthy or not to be hit songs. It would also be awesome to get a selfie and send it to him that maybe this would have not happened if he did that to me. Would really appreciate.

To your greatest respect and punk on!

A New Era of Sailor Moon Just Got Released Today

Published July 5, 2014 by Dina ^_^

Hey Moonies!

Guess what today is? Come on! I know a lot of y’all already saw it. I haven’t seen it yet. Just woke up.

Anyhow, today is the day Sailor Moon Crystal comes out today and I see that the majority are happy about it. Enjoy it. Don’t let hopes ruin your day.

Mines got ruined a few weeks ago. I don’t feel the charisma that I been wanting to watch it. Just for y’all that really want to see it, watch it. I don’t know what to do now, might as well go to work with broken promises following me.

Anyhow, remember that Sailor Moon is available streaming online each first and third Saturday each month. So don’t forget about it, it’s only an episode each, not like the original that there’s ‘two new episodes’ each on Hulu. Also, it’s streaming online on NicoNico, Hulu, Neo Alley, and Crunchyroll.

Any comments? Keep them short, clear, and to the point. So this is Diana reporting that the new era of Sailor Moon is going to take over the world, but not with any hopes that one is already heartbroken and lost in that pile of pieces.

If you love scones…. Here it goes!

1996

As promised, here is the scone recipe, please note the date “1996” when I pulled this recipe out of a magazine.

The idea behind this recipe was to use alternative, more healthy ingredients to make scones. I would imagine many different ingredients could be used.

Straight from the printed recipe:

Walnut Scones | makes 12 (somehow I only get 8…whatever)

  • 1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour (I have split this with half oats for a more crumbly scone)
  • 1/4 cup maple sprinkles or sucanant (I think sucanat was trending at the time, I use all kinds of different sweeteners)
  • 2 teaspoons aluminum-free baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/3 cup of Spectrum Spread (another label I don’t think is around anymore…I use Earth Balance Spread but I’m sure butter would work magically)
  • 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped coarse
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Happy Indepencende’s Day!!!

Published July 4, 2014 by Dina ^_^

Hey Moonies!

Today, as more than half our American people should know what day it is, not all many people don’t really know what this special day is about. Don’t worry, I’ll have all the notes about it since I’m studying to become a political science.

So this day, the Fourth of July, is when our Founding Fathers sign the Declaration of Independence. You are wondering who are the Founding Fathers right? Well, it starts from the time that the British and the colonist started fighting in the Battle of Lexington and Concord because the British believed that the colonist were hiding armory in the town of Concord.

So King George Hanover III, supposedly the last king the colonist had before claiming Independence, heard that the colonist is not exporting their armory  to England. So he wanted his stuff and send about more than 3o0 armed men to Boston. They blocked Boston and left some troops behind to go to Concord. Before the remaining troops that were going to Concord to retrieve the supplies, the colonists have spread the word already, with the help of Paul Revere, to tell the people in Concord to retreat the supplies and leave the place at once.

This notification also included the minutemen to be ready. By the  time the British troops got to Lexington, MA, the minutemen were already ready to resist the troops. This mystery is still unknown, but the first shot got released and the battle started. The battle continued until they got on the Concord Bridge.  Though by that time, the supplies and the people guarding the stuff are already gone, what was the point for the troops to be there. So the British troops retreated and went all the way to Boston.

So due to the battle, the delegates from each state meet up again on the Second Continental Congress in the Summer of 1776. They wanted to be precautions about protecting the people, so they created the Continental Army, as George Washington as Commander of the army. During those hot days in the, one person wanted to announce Independence from Britain, but not all the delegates didn’t like the grumpy old John Adams. So with the help of Benjamin Franklin, they convinced Richard Henry Lee to go to their state delegation to view Independence from Britain. So the wait comes and the next day, they do the last few agreements before everyone leaves and just in time did Lee came that he announced that the state delegates in Virginia is wanting Independence from Britain. That got Adams and Franklin happy. So all delegates from each state agrees about forming the Independence Committee.

The Independence Committee chose Jefferson to write the finest delicate paper in just two days. It was a victory for Adams because Thomas got it done before the delegates think of how long it would take for the paper to be done.

So the summer of 1776 was a crucial one. A lot of the things that Jefferson posted got deleted because some of these delegates were ministers, others were rich plantation owners, others were drunken crazy people, and others were inventors and writers. There was a huge issue about it that took almost two days to resolve and that had to do with slavery. Those in the South were against what it said that everything and everyone is a slave to King George. Adams approved of it and was on the verge to fight the southern delegates to keep it, but it was impossible  to get them out of their head. So Jefferson decided to go to the desk and drop the phrase so no more they could fight about it. It was technically approved  in July 2, 1776, but the final copy got done in July 4th, 1776, each delegate of each country agrees to sign it, but it took weeks and months for the document to be completely signed. It needed more convincing about why are we even fighting for independence.

So it took all summer to get Independence from Britain. Although it took a lot of planning and problems involve, they knew that they couldn’t do it anymore more of what Britain is doing to them. They didn’t get representation in Parliament, so how would they do to be heard, by writing a paper asking for independence.

So to speak… This is no day to celebrate. This is a day to respect this country of the struggles the Founding Fathers did to get away from the grasps of the British king and Parliament. This is no day to treat other people like shit and eat bar-be-que during the day. This is no day to pop fireworks. This is a day to know that we’re struggling to get freedom for future generations. We still are. So think twice about what are you doing today and give a memorial for the birth of our country. Not celebrate it because that’s just more mass production being made for this day. It’s just another government day, meaning that you need to respect this important day.

Any comments? Keep them short, clear, and to the point. So this is Diana reporting that this country deserves more knowledge and respect about our history. Also, Happy Birthday United States of America!

New Edition To My Blog…

Published July 4, 2014 by Dina ^_^

Hey there Moonies!

I have to tell y’all this, since today is Independence’s Day, that I have something that would let a female know more about her body.

You wonder what the heck I’m saying right? Well, last month, I was looking for an alternative way to get birth control, since I’m against birth control pills and other chemicals that they put in the shot and other uses of preventing us getting pregnant. However, this book is talking more than just that. It talks about how our body changes a lot during our menstruation and how our cycle affects how our eggs become fertilized.

So I’m going to be doing two posts each week, so I haven’t got an exact date about when they will be posted. So just be on the lookout next week!

Facebook finally brings Messenger to iPad

Finally is time to chat more on bigger tablets!

Originally posted on Gigaom:

After debuting its standalone Messenger app for iPhone (s aapl) and Android (s goog) three years ago, Facebook (s fb) has finally expanded the app to accommodate for the iPad. The app works more or less the same as the Messenger app currently available for the phone, including Stickers and VoIP calling. Right now, Facebook seems to be keeping chat baked into the iPad version of the Facebook app, but it will be interesting to see whether it decides to spin out Messenger and eliminate chat from the flagship app as it did for the iPhone.

Promises and the Broken Ones…

Published July 3, 2014 by Dina ^_^

Hey there Moonies!

Sometimes, there are promises that you have to fulfill. There are some that is broken and you just can’t trust that person no more.

Well, for me, that is one thing that I’m worrying that I would lose complete trust on Joel. Worse, it has to do with the released of Sailor Moon Crystal.

To give you an update about Sailor Moon Crystal, yeah, that’s the name of the new reboot or remake, whatever you want to call it, of the new anime that Naoko Takeuchi herself is putting a lot of work into. They already released a trailer of the anime and everyone is excited about, others are kinda disappointed about how it looks. But for me, it looks great because it’s going by the manga. I would love it to death for sure. It’s going to come out in July 5, day after Independence day.

Though one thing  about it is that I’m still lost if I’m even broken up or not with Joel, I still haven’t heard from him in person. I guess he’s still  a chicken to face it. But one promise was already broken, which was the reason of the promise ring that I still have. That we still be friends no matter what happens to us, especially if we break up on bad terms. Though there was another promise that I feel that I would completely lose trust in him and I feel like crying again because the show is coming out this Saturday. I really don’t know what to do.

I still remember that day I was walking around with him at downtown, before we started dating. I keep mentioning about Sailor Moon and the reboot and he told me when it was going to come out. I told him that it was going to come out this summer. He told me that he would watch it with me if I wanted to. I told him, it would be great, but I told him that he needs to promise it because a lot of people in my life already let me down already. So he did. Now, I’m worried that with this promise, I would lose it completely.

Any comments? Keep them short, clear, and to the point. This is Diana talking about what has happened in my life.
