    This is what really bothers me.. the incredibly rampant GREED among the local Telcos in my area..

    https://www.manilatimes.net/telecoms-will-never-world-class-kind-telco-owners/359549/

    I even had an instance wherein I was disconnected 4 times during a very important Skype Phone Call that lasted for 2 hours.. I was disconnected 4 times in 2 hours. Heck, even the Bureau Of Internal Revenue, a government institution that regulates and Processes Taxes, does not have an internet connection to make use of it's online Tax Applications and submissions... >.>

    The President even had to THREATEN the CEO of one of these two GREEDY companies to actually give back a frequency spectrum to the government so a third Telco player could actually have something to use to hopefully improve the state of the internet in my country.

    After 7 years of suffering under the company known as PLDT, and of course through their constant throttling of my internet connection and never providing me with the actual service that I am paying for, I finally gave in to their constant "suggestions" to upgrade and pay more for a better connection.. and lo and behold.. the service they offered was not even available in my area.. the bloody bastards! They deliberately throttle my connection and their agents constantly hound me to upgrade and give them more money for a much better plan, when I finally agreed to that, they then tell me that the plan they have been peddaling me to get is not even available... -_-

    April has not been my month for electronics.

    Tripped and took my Galaxy S10 to the ground. Shattered the back glass and had to replace it. Not horrible, $95 at a local Sammy repair shop. But they didn't have the correct color, gave me the pearl white back where I have the blue colored S10. Have to wait until they get the correct color in before they can swap the back glass out again. :confused:

    And now my Westone W40's are going out. Combination of corrosion on the connectors and debris impacted in the audio tube. Apparently Westone does not repair their universal units, and will only allow me to buy a new pair for 25% off, and out of warranty discount. $500 IEMs that lasted 5 years. :mad::mad:

    Need to take a look at other brands before I even consider Westone again.
    Too soon...?

    Not my week either. Someone stole the jack from under my car. Had to go spend $130 on a new one. Then I'm reattaching wires to my starter, one of the wire studs snaps off. Now I gotta replace the starter. Got 2 bolts out. Last bolt is on the very top, right inbetween the starter, headers, and chassis of the car, ie damn near impossible to get to.
