Not a few people suggested I just buy those little plug devices but I… can’t. I do so many things online (blogging, chatting, downloading, surfing, watching YouTube, etc) all at the same time that those little wireless broadband things just can’t handle the load. I mean, of course I can be wireless but I’m the most impatient person on earth so I just refused to do it. It’s like when you’ve gotten used to, say, La Mer. Other creams do the same job but not as well as La Mer. So, no, I’m not on a hate campaign against wireless broadband but, ya, a DSL connection has spoiled me rotten. Basically, why settle for less?

Anyway, on this blog’s Facebook wall, a reader suggested I switch to PLDT’s myDSL. And because I do listen to my darling readers, I did a little research and stumbled on this surreal YouTube video:
I had to replay that because it was just so fantastical! Some guy who looks like Joe Jonas prances around with the sneezing panda and the dancing Cebu inmates and the Pacman and, well, so many other characters from entertainment and viral videos. Kinda weird, kinda entertaining! So after watching it again, I realized that it’s saying this: With DSL connection, you can watch videos, download songs and TV shows and movies, do social networking, and enjoy 20 TV channels for free. Hmm. I like the free channels!
Then--strange coincidence!--yesterday at SM Megamall, I saw a PLDT myDSL booth so I sauntered over and learned that the subscription called XCITE plan 1995 gives an extra: the Watchpad. According to the guys at the booth, Watchpad is an interactive TV from your computer. While doing something on the Internet, I can have CNN and other channels on the background. They told me that there’s absolutely no need to log off to do Watchpad--I can surf, blog, and watch TV all at the same time! The guys there also assured me that service has improved significantly over the last few months because they’ve been “investing heavily in migration to a new system.”
So what do you think???
P.S. In the video, doesn’t he kinda look like Joe Jonas? Who is this guy? Is he in theater or something? Is that really him singing?
