Initial boot-up

Welcome to the official PC World Philippines blog!

This is the online home of the core PC World Philippines team, where we will be posting tidbits from our print magazine articles, as well as up-to-date personal computing information. This is not meant to be a general tech blog however (check out Pinoy Tech Blog, and PWIT for that). Instead, we are going to provide you with previews on events in the tech scene as they happen, let you in on what’s under scrutiny in our Test Lab from time to time, and basically give you a glimpse of what’s going on at PC World Philippines.

Yes, yes, we know we’re slow on the uptake, but we’re here now, and that’s what counts, right? Let’s get going then. This is Sean, Billy, Luis and Jullienne, signing on.
