Huawei Releases New Hotpot Devices That Will Make You A #HotspotHottie

The Huawei Flash, Huawei Spark and Huawei Lightning take full advantage of Huawei’s mobile broadband network compatibility to deliver fast and uninterrupted internet connectivity on-the-go.

Mall goers at the SM Mall of Asia, however, were in for quite a different surprise, as instead of Santa Claus, people were taking photos of a group of handsome men in red and white, who instead of gifts were giving out free WiFi--both to the naughty and nice!

Later revealed as the #HuaweiHotspotHotties, these foreign models led shoppers to the Cyberzone event center where Huawei exhibited their latest line of pocket WiFi devices via a mini fashion show.

Save time preparing healthy meals with Philips’ Induction Cooker

With today’s busy schedules, it’s no wonder that ready-to-eat canned food, frozen dinners, and fast food takeout have largely replaced traditional home-cooked diets. Modern urban living has become easily manageable thanks to these food options, but this convenience does come at a heavy price.

Many types of processed food are made with substantial amounts of salt, sugar, and fat—ingredients that contribute to obesity when consumed in excess.

Seeing LEDs in a new light

According to Villanueva, 45% of the Philippines’ energy is lost to old and inefficient lighting. While this is a staggeringly high number, ordinary consumers and more so the professional end users can also do their part in curbing the impending power crisis. Making the switch to Philips LED lighting could be that first big but simple step.

Aside from major savings, there are several other advantages to the use of Philips LED lighting. LEDs have a longer lifespan than compact fluorescent (CFL) bulbs and are more environmentally-friendly. But what sets Philips LED apart from unknown brands is the compliance with international standards on safety.
