Goodbye privacy, Hello NSA

Today I will re-enable my search history, location history, Google Now, and other privacy-invasive apps to let my phone organize some parts of my life. Goodbye privacy.

Fake OnePlus One at Lazada

I'm posting this in order to help "SEO" factual information on the Internet. DO NOT buy the phone at Lazada. It's the Chinese version with ColorOS, and the sellers replaced the phone's OS with Cyanogenmod to make it look like a legitimate International OnePlus One.

Surprise: did you know that you can actually buy the One Plus One from the official site without an invite or without going to a third-party seller like Oppomart? You can even buy accessories! Just go to their Chinese site for more details. Lelz. The Chinese website is registered to 深圳市万普拉斯贸易有限公司, zhoujin0957@163.com (Plath Shenzhen Trading Co., Ltd., according to Google translate). Proceed with caution.

How to ship OnePlus One to unsupported countries like the Philippines

Sorry for trolling you guys in my previous post. I was frustrated at how hard to get the invite, so I decided to channel my frustrations into childish trolling. Hahaha. :p

Anyway, I was able to finally buy the OnePlus One, and it's now being shipped to Johnny Air. Below are the notes to solve the problems that I've encountered.

You don't have an invite.

Participate in the forums. Spam the people at @oneplus.net. I was able to get their e-mail addresses via "creative" spammy means, but they didn't respond. Lelz. You can also buy an invite.


You're from an unsupported country like the Philippines.

Use a freight forwarder inside one of their supported countries. I used Johnny Air to forward the phone from New York to Cebu. On hindsight, it might have been more efficient to forward the phone from Hong Kong, but I can no longer change the shipping address because the phone is already on its way.


Paypal's retarded policy prevents you from using a shipping address outside your country. Paypal gives the following error:

"We're sorry, PayPal Philippines accounts cannot ship purchases to United States."

Create a new PayPal account and use the freight forwarder's address as your shipping address. Disconnect your card from your old account and transfer your card details to the new one. There's probably no need to transfer your card if you just transfer the funds from your old account to your new one, but you have to pay a transfer fee. Paypal is retarded. I have many bad experiences with Paypal (they froze my account and they took more than a month to unfreeze it), but I have no choice but to use their services. I wish Bitcoin will take off.

I'm straying out of topic again. Hahaha...

Went back to trading a few weeks ago, but my portfolio is bloody red. The only green stock is an odd lot from BDO's dividends. I sold most of them at profit because BDO's price is nearing its fair value. Will buy back if it becomes cheap again. The 13% "loss" is an odd lot from Metrobank, also sold at profit. The stock market is boring. I lost a lot (relatively, at a time when I was young and broke) a few years ago when I speculated on what was clearly a manipulated stock. I promised myself not to buy another basura (trash) stock like Calata, but I'm still hardheaded. See that 16% loss up there? It's from another basura.

I don't know if this is a stupid thing to do, but I think I'll continue to buy trash as long as I don't put my eggs in one basket. My eggs look OK so far LOLz:

Hello blog

I think I need to post some travel blogs or something. There are lots of pics and videos in my cams, but they remain unpublished. I wish there was a decent video editor for Linux. Tried Openshot, Kdenlive, Lightworks, and Pitivi, all to no avail. My laptop's hard disk is filling up with photos and useless GoPro footages. Hahaha...
