@JC – thought so too but I guess BMW thinks if you can use GPS while driving, why not FB and Twitter too?
@benchmark – actually MMDA recommends drivers to follow @mmda to get the latest traffic updates via Twitter.
@johnny – sorry dude, I don’t have any cool gadgets to show off lately. The last one I got was the Nexus One from January. You’ll have to wait for April until I get a hold of the Apple iPad.
@incredibleDNA – we went to Legazpi on Friday morning, the 6am Cebu Pacific flight. Yup. dune buggy din ata tawag dito.
@lava bien – You are right! Size is relative. I allowed my 15yo nephew parked the Jazz and he suggested the back sensor.
We’ll ask our contacts in Honda and get back to you.
Maybe it will take a few more weeks before shipments arrive from Metro Manila.
Try the nearest Honda Dealership in your area.
We also have a list for bikes: https://www.yugatech.com/cars-transportation/list-of-online-stores-to-buy-bicycles/
Base dun sa radio interview sa DZMM, iba pa yung dealer’s price then the SRP.
Not covered by the new law.
Yes. The rationale of the law is that as long as it does not distract the view of the driver and does not operate it while driving, it is okay.
It can be interpreted as “b) electronic computing device to perform other similar acts.”
Could be interpreted as “computing device”.
Contactless enforcement via the MMDA CCTV.
Hindi kasama unless you operate it while driving.
They will give you a citation ticket.
MMDA chair said as long as it does not cover view of the road.
Sa dashboard puede.
Here is the list of exemptions: http://www.yugatech.com/cars-transportation/anti-distracted-driving-act-lapses-into-law/
We posted a link to exceptions at the end of the article.
I suggest getting an automatic sedan for UberX. It’s the best in terms of returns.
And I forgot to bring my DJI Osmo!
The Sony A7S MII has a built-in 5-axis stabilization already. The road was just too rough.
Yes, but after we reviewed our footage, we discovered we sorely lacked profile shots of the new models. The ones we have here are the only usable ones (the Support Car in the convoy).
Based on my daily bills on Uber from Makati to BGC, the fees are between Php200 to Php500 per trip. Let’s say average per trip is Php300 then they get 10 trips a day makes for Php3,000 a day or 90k a month.
He is just one of several Uber drivers. He is an exception because he joined in December and drives almost 16 hours a day and sleeps in his car. As I said, the others (majority) I talked to shared that they don’t make much.
If the question is the economic capacity of the person, then this law will only apply to those who can afford to buy a car. If you can’t afford a car, the law will not require you to buy a baby car seat. Fair enough, right?
Hi Oona! One of our Ad Networks uses some re-targeting technology that shows ads based on your browsing history. As such they may show ads that are exactly the same, similar or related to previous sites you have visited. We suggest using Incognito Mode to avoid the re-targeting.
I think that’s exactly the point that Mazda is trying to achieve. That features like the iStop is not exclusive to expensive brands or models but also accessible to regular car buyers, thus the Mazda 3 and CX5.
I am told it will be the actual release.
I checked on the BRZ but ended with the Forester. Don’t want to get the BRZ anymore, I would look too much of a Subaru fan.
Also looked into the GT86 but there’s a pretty long line from last I inquired.
As for the Mustang, I really want it also but the price difference is like Php800k.
I did! But changed my mind and got a condo instead. Then, got an Subaru Forester. Hoping to get the Genesis Coupe next.

@calimanok – if the luxury tax of imported cars in the Philippines is 100%, then the landed price could go as high as Php12.4 million.
@goosebumps – matagal pa daw, di pa lumalabas sa market e. hehehe
@dom – thanks for the suggestion. I have my eyes on the 250R now.
@drey — and all along, I thought CUV = cross-over SUV.
@andre – actually, i didnt. Its that guy in the last picture.
