A couple of months ago, Globe tapped me to become one of their “brand ambassadors”. I help the company promote its home broadband services: Tattoo@Home, Tattoo WiMax, and the super-fast Tattoo Torque. Here are some things I’ve learned:
Globe’s plans for 2011
Among these are a planned $500 million capital expenditure to improve the telco’s connectivity and customer service capabilities. Globe really wants to provide great service, so feel free to send in questions, suggestion, and even violent reactions to the company’s Facebook and Twitter.
Another plan involves the company’s offering of a 4G technology called HSPA+. That rollout is an intro of sorts, as Globe prepares to provide LTE (long-term evolution) coverage to the market. Hooray for local mobile consumers!
The iPad 2 camera sucks
Below is a picture of Saab Magalona, Sarah Gaugler, Alodia Gosiengfiao, and yours truly. We were all backstage during a Globe Tattoo press event, waiting for our introduction as brand ambassadors. Coach Rio dela Cruz was unfortunately busy with a running event in Europe, if I remember correctly.
The image above was captured with my iPad 2’s built-in camera (the rear one). As you can see, the picture is quite grainy, the result of the camera’s inability to work under low-light conditions. So don’t buy the iPad 2 because you want to take photos.
Expect a full inbox if Alodia tags you on Facebook
Remember the picture of us four? Alodia uploaded it to her Facebook account mere seconds after I emailed it to her phone from my iPad. She of course tagged me in the photo, which was why I got email notifications of all 1,907 comments (as of this writing). It’s a good thing Gmail bunches similar emails together! It’s also funny how many people commented on the poor image quality. Said Uchiha Michael Cayao: “siguro sa ipad3 na ung mataas na megapixels:)”
