How to download and install iOS 11 Public Beta 1 the Tokitechie way?

The iOS 11 is just around the corner and while developers make their best efforts to iron out the software issues, you have two options: either do nothing and wait until iOS 11 reaches its official release date in September Keynote or join the bandwagon and download the pre-released iOS 11 beta updates via Apple Beta Software Program.

How to setup a custom domain for Blogger blog in 2017 with Godaddy for the first time?

I recently bought a custom domain name from Godaddy.com for my Blogger blog to drop the blogspot sub-domain and successfully redirected traffic from my old blog address to the new address without any problem. I bought the domain name in June 22nd, 2017 and three days after redirecting the traffic from my previous blogspot.com host to the new domain name, I still haven't been experiencing any down times and problems to my blog. 

When you purchase a custom domain name from Godaddy.com, they assign DNS Records (A record and CNAME record) to the domain. You will use these records to set-up your new website. If you're blogging using Blogger, the default A record and CNAME records provided by Godaddy.com cannot be used so you will have to change it or delete it and create a new one.

Here are the steps on how to setup a custom domain for your Blogger blog with Godaddy.com for the first time:

As the one who manages our bills, it's a very convenient way for a working class Filipino like me to get an advance copy of the bill even if I'm not living in my parents' house where the official bill print-out is delivered. This also enables me to pay for the bill on an earlier time whenever and wherever I am. I only need the exact Amount and the 16-digit ATM/Phone Ref. No. of the latest bill and then I can easily pay it via G-Cash or via BPI Expressonline

How about you? 
If you also want to access your bills online, you need to register first your account to the e-MERALCO Bill customer service's online portal called MERALCO e-Services which you can access from this Link.

5 Reasons Why Sony's Extra Bass Line-Up is Perfect for Electronic Dance Music (EDM)

Audiophile or not, techie or not, I think every Juan deserves to have a perfect device that he could carry around, place anywhere he wants and that could give him the best quality of music when he plays his favorite tunes, tracks, beats & mixes anytime, anywhere.

Music is everywhere and we all know about it. It comes in different styles, types and genres. The most notable of which is the type of music called E.D.M. also known as Electronic Dance Music.
