Lenovo to give free windows update

Sunday, June 28, 2009

Lenovo has become the latest PC vendor to offer users a free upgrade to Windows 2007.

The company said that all systems sold between 26 June and 31 January with the Home Premium, Business and Ultimate versions of Windows Vista would be eligible for the update.

Lenovo said that the offer will be limited to home and small business system purchases. Customers who purchase more than 29 systems will be directed to use Microsoft's volume licensing programme instead.

The offer makes Lenovo the second major PC vendor to roll out a free upgrade programme in recent days. On Thursday HP said that it would be offering a similar deal to users who purchase new systems between now and the 22 October release of Windows 7.

Microsoft is also pressing users to plan an upgrade to the new version of Windows. The company said yesterday that it would offer discounted pricing to those who pre-ordered copies of Windows 7.

The company is also offering a deferred cost programme to encourage more PC vendors to offer free upgrades to Windows 7.

Both Microsoft and PC vendors are hoping that the free upgrade campaigns will serve as a way to keep users purchasing new systems throughout the summer rather than waiting until after the release of Windows 7 to purchase a new PC.

No to Constituent Assembly (ConAss)!!!

Wednesday, June 10, 2009


I am a Filipino and despite all the negative publicity surrounding our race, I am proud to be one. The news that Congress is bent on pursuing a change in the form of the government through a constituent assembly concerns me deeply. I believe, as our Congressmen do, that change is very much needed to revive our country from the paralyzing weakness it has long suffered from. However, we cannot jumpstart that needed change by being in such a hurry.

As most of our senate said:

"Charter change must be done correctly, at the proper time, definitely after the May 2010 elections, and for the right reasons, that is, for national, not personal and vested interests, and within the legal means under the Constitution"

Simply saying, if the Constituent Assembly was approved, the GMA Regime will continue. Changing the type of our government from Democratic to Parliamentary with one corrupt leader named Gloria Macapagal Arroyo and a money-oriented congress will lead our country to a no-no destination.

This is our chance, as a people of the Republic of the Philippines, kaya natin to! Help our country to survive and to change within you, within us youth. As our beloved national hero Jose Rizal said, "Ang kabataan ay ang pag-asa ng bayan (the youth is the hope of the country)". Let us ask our selves "Ako'y isa sa kabataan na tinutukoy ni Rizal, naging pag-asa ba ako ng aking bayan? (I am the youth Rizal's talking about, have i become the country's hope?)".

"Ngayon, ang kabataan ay maa-asahan na....(Today, the youth became responsible...)" - Chiz Escudero

God Bless Philippines!
