Post image for Facebook’s New Simplified Privacy Controls [Video]

Facebook began the roll-out of its new simplified privacy controls after the backlash it has generated from FB users worldwide–even landing them on the cover of Time magazine. Privacy issues started to crop up when Facebook changed their privacy model from “regional networks”, that revolves around communities for your school, your company or your region, […]

The Green Fields of France

by Eric Pena on July 15, 2009

First time I heard this song and it touched me; after all, I did have my fair share of fighting a senseless civil war. Watch the video on the right (if you can’t see it, click here) and follow with the lyrics below. The Green Fields Of France How do you do young Willie Mcbride, […]


The Other MJ

by Eric Pena on July 1, 2009

Michael Jackson is gone but his memory has been immortalized through his music. Then, there is the other MJ whose virtuoso on the playing court produces a different kind of music, but has the same mesmerizing effect to his worldwide audience. Obviously, the other MJ I’m speaking of is no other than the greatest basketball […]


Finger Painting on the iPhone Using Brushes

by Eric Pena on June 23, 2009

It’s been ages since I last posted an article on digital painting and my Wacom tablet has been gathering dust. But ever since I saw that particular cover on The New Yorker, I immediately downloaded the iPhone application that was responsible for creating it.


The much talked about new ad from Microsoft has not yet reached our local networks (I doubt if it will even be shown here), but no thanks to the Internet, it made me watched a commercial intently quite a few times. The thing is, that ad doesn’t let you easily get the message and is […]


Google: “Don’t Be Evil”

by Eric Pena on June 27, 2008

When I first had access to the Internet in the mid 90s, Google was non-existent. Popular search engines then were Excite, Alta Vista, Infoseek, Lycos and of course Yahoo! Well, except for Yahoo, the other web search engine pioneers may now be unheard of today. I learned about Google in 1999 and since then it […]


Your iPhone or Your Life?

by Eric Pena on June 26, 2008

For some people, the iPhone has taken away their lives. Make sure it doesn’t happen literally. A surveillance video inside a bus in Columbus, OH, caught on tape a hooded teen lunging on a man who was wearing headphones and beating him up when he tried to hang on to his iPhone. Interestingly, nobody tried […]


If you’re a noob in digital painting and struggling to create your first digital masterpiece, you need a very good video tutorial to get you up to speed fast. Otherwise, you will quickly run into problems and get frustrated fast. I have tried many tutorials on the web but a lot of them assume you […]


I recently came across two old documentary films about the place of my birth. Watching these movies were like traveling back in time but never quite leaving from where I am. 70 years ago, those people were living their lives, unsure of what the future may bring. Those were people who have been released from […]


How to Watch Hi-Res YouTube Videos Online

by Eric Pena on June 17, 2008

Ok, so there is this nice Fathers Day video on YouTube that shows every father’s ultimate toys–Lambos and Ferraris–being pulled-over by cops. Sad thing is, just like most YouTube videos, it’s like watching old silent movies with sound. There is actually a neat trick that you can use to make these videos look much better. […]

Steve Jobs WWDC Keynote (in 60 Seconds)

by Eric Pena on June 12, 2008

I admit I’ve been waiting for the iPhone 3G for quite some time. I was disappointed when it was not included in the first iPhone release last year. I’ve had 3G with my Nokia N73 before I got my iPhone 1.02 and using EDGE is not the same. With bated breath, I eagerly awaited Steve […]
