PLDT: No Longer On My Shit List

PLDT: No Longer On My Shit List

Had a VERY interesting call last week.  Out of the blue the new head of Customer Care from PLDT called me up.  Apparently someone had taken note of my blog coverage of they’re (in my opinion) less than stellar service.

Honestly folks, I’m impressed.  The guy (won’t post his name) was very straight-up in addressing my complaints.  Where they were blatantly wrong he apologized and made an offer to give me what I wanted and asked for into to try and ...

iOS App to Fight Scamming Taxi’s!

In Manila, Taxi drivers are seriously the biggest scumbags on earth.  By law they can’t deny a paying fare.  But laws don’t usually apply here.  They won’t even OPEN the door until you tell them where you want to go.  And of course if it’s too far, they’ll usually tell you to fuck off.  If you’re lucky they’ll just quote you an absurd “fixed price” rate.  Again, illegal.  Even if you win the argument to force them to run their ...
