Collest Gadget!!!


.. no idea if it's already available in town or if it's coming out, someone says it's just a concept ( i wonder how much this rob your wallet!)

"The iRing’s functionality is every bit as cool as the iPod’s. To adjust the volume, you simply need to slide your finger across the touch sensitive surface of the ring. To play or pause songs, just tap the apple icon on the ring and to skip tracks you need only touch on either side of the icon depending on which direction you want to go."

It is USB powered and comes with an equally stylish cradle for you to keep the ring safe or (as I would!) display it proudly on your coffee table. The cradle is also used to recharge the iRing through a USB connection.

The Great Michael Phelps!

That 23-year old man reached his goal!

Eight gold medals in a single Games.

Pano ba nman makaka-gold ang Team Philippines sa men's swimming kung yan ang makakalaban hehe...

"I'm more at a loss for words than I was yesterday," Phelps told NBC after breaking Mark Spitz's mark of seven golds in a single Olympics. "The help from these guys made it all possible. ... It's amazing to be part of this."

The New American Hero!!

All eyes are in Beijing!

Actually question ko 'to the other day, bakit ung mga divers laging pmupunta ng shower area every after mag-dive..

just got this answer on Yahoo Sports!

After completing a dive, competitors swim to a ladder, climb out of the pool and head immediately to a bank of showers that sit adjacent to the diving boards. Then, in full view of the crowd and NBC cameras, they shower off. Divers keep their suits on, of course, usually appearing only to rinse off their hair and arms. Oftentimes, the divers will receive their scores while still showering off. What's the purpose of this?

Theories have ranged from 'to get the chlorine off' to 'they want to have fun' -- seriously, that last one is a direct quote from NBC's diving analyst, Cynthia Potter. Neither are the reason.

Divers shower in between each dive to keep their muscles warm after getting out of the pool. The temperature of the pool water and the air are usually different (the pool is usually around 80 degrees, with the air temperature between 68 and 72 degrees). This difference can cause muscle tightness. To combat this, divers warm up in either the showers or a hot tub.

Mystery: solved. (Although we're still a bit unclear as to why the showers are out in the open.The water cube cost over $200 million to build. They couldn't have put a privacy wall in?!)
