INQUIRER FILE PHOTO

MANILA, Philippines — Senator Lito Lapid has filed a bill seeking to establish a program where manufacturers and retailers of electronic gadgets will be mandated to set up donation and recycling booths in their outlets and service centers.

In filing Senate Bill No. 1846, Lapid said the booths will be set up for electronic gadgets such as laptops and mobile phones for donation or recycling. 

He explained that users frequently dispose of their old gadgets as they buy brand-new units, which in turn, contribute to the waste problem in the country. 

“Hindi natin masisisi ang ating mga kababayan kung gugustuhin nilang palitan ng bago ang kanilang mga gadget kahit hindi pa ito sira, lalo kung may pambili naman sila. Pero kung tutuusin ang mga lumang gadget gaya ng mobile phones at laptop, hindi naman kailangan itapon,” Lapid said in a statement on Friday.

New life for old corporate computers so students can learn from home

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced many school students around the world to embrace remote learning. But not all have computers at home.

Now a group of companies and non-profits in Hong Kong are taking part in a global program by Microsoft that breathes new life into old office PCs and distributes them to students from disadvantaged backgrounds.

“I live in a village in Sha Tin, and my family’s income is limited,” says Wu Jiahui, a Secondary 5 (Year 11) student at Toi Shan Association College. “We don’t have the ability to purchase computers.”

Instead, Jiahui has had to rely on her smartphone to study. “But the speed is slower, and the software is not sufficient,” she says. “Because of the small screen, it’s hard to read, and the long-term use of my mobile phone caused shoulder pain and dry eye syndrome.”

Without a proper device, students can’t learn efficiently. The

American Rifleman | High Speed Gear Move Hints at Increased Demand for Accessories



by Guy J. Sagi –
Thursday, September 24, 2020

This year’s record-setting pace of firearm sales has dominated headlines, but the dramatic increase in first-time owners—estimated to be 5 million—has resulted in an unprecedented demand for ammunition, training and gear.

Unlike the moderately accurate gun-purchase estimates made possible by NICS background checks, accessory manufacturers closely guard their sales figures. A recent announcement from High Speed Gear however, indicates holsters, pouches and associated equipment may be leaving the shelves at twice their traditional rate.

On Sept. 8, High Speed Gear began a second manufacturing shift at its North Carolina manufacturing facility. The move, according to the press release, was to increase production and fill orders for its American-made gear.

Staff was added for the move, and even before the gun-sales boom, the company was already the largest full-time employer in Swansboro, NC. It continues to invest

Ring the changes: the best mid-price smartphones

It used to be the case that you had to spend at least £700 to get a really good phone. But in 2020, that’s no longer true. With fantastic smartphones costing as little as half as much as an iPhone 11, here’s a quick guide to the best mid-priced phones.

Many of these smartphones will also be available on mobile phone contracts with no, or little, upfront cost. Just be sure to compare the total monthly fees over the 18- or 24-month contract against the cost of buying the phone outright, and using a cheaper sim-only or pay-as-you-go plan, to make sure you are getting a good deal.
