2011 Ford Everest 4×4 Review

So what makes the Ford Everest totally different from other SUVs? Let’s start with its front fascia. The multibar chrome grille on the top lip, which is flanked by wraparound headlamps and finished below with a lower intake of round foglamps, yields a sophisticated look. The side view of the vehicle shows strength, from its […]

Smart Bro Rocket (12mbps) to launch next week

Breaking news from one of our favorite tech bloggers, Yugatech! Smart is coming out with a HSPA+ broadband service called the Smart Bro Rocket. This is the same technology used by Globe with the Tattoo Tonino Lamborghini. One big difference between the two products is the payment method. Unlike Globe who’s pushing for postpaid, the […]

2011 Mazda CX-7 Review

  IF there’s one aspect where Mazda CX-7 breaks from the pack, it’s definitely styling. Diverting from the conventional heavy, boxy look of SUVs, the CX-7 exudes a sporty feel with its dashing windshield that is slanted at 66 degrees like that in the Mazda RX-8, protruding front fenders and wheels that are pushed forward, […]

The Apple Store Challenge

Ever wonder what it feels like to be in an Apple store? We do, too. Apparently, they allow all sorts of stuff to happen in an Apple store. And it’s packed with so many people! Caution: This video is AWESOME. (My personal favorite villain makes his appearance here, too) I wonder if this will help […]

The guys over at MiPow PH were kind enough to send us two units of the MiPow Power Tube to give away here at Unbox. We have one in pink and one in silver. This is a great device to have especially if you use your phones for 3G (drains battery quickly). Let’s keep the […]

Preview: 2012 Honda CR-V

The photo above is the first official image of the 2012 Honda CR-V Concept. This is the fourth generation model and it’s scheduled to hit the US by the end of this year.

This technology allows the device to throw the beam of the light as far as it can go. You can manipulate it further by turning the tail […]

Smart Bro Power Plug-it Review

Ever since my ill-fated first relationship with Smart Bro a few years ago I switched over to Sun Cellular and Globe for my mobile internet requirements. A series of unfortunate experiences (a mix of long intermittent connection periods and bad customer support) led me to terminate as soon as the contract expired. However it looks […]

Unboxing the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1

One of my colleagues at work brought her new gadget to the office today — the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1! She was kind enough to hold off the urge to open the box and play around with the tablet when she first got it this morning so that we could take some photos for everyone […]

Vespa LX150 Review

We were loaned a sky blue Vespa LX150 for the weekend and it was definitely an experience worth writing about! The Vespa LX150 is a happy, fun, smooth, and subtly powerful ride that will turn heads as you zip through the busy streets of Metro Manila. Unlike traditionally designed bikes that you see here in […]

Unbox Photo of the Week: NBA Players starstruck with Manny Pacquiao

In case you’ve been living under a rock and haven’t heard about the news yet, several NBA players including Kobe Bryant and Chris Paul, played against PBA All-Stars and Smart Gilas over the weekend.
