I can’t think of one day that I wouldn’t even tinker with my phone. For me, this mobile and digital lifestyle has given me access to information, not to mention a job! This digital revolution has turned everyone into a digital humankind, tinkering with gadgets one callous thumb at a time (now that I’ve thought of it, it sounds scary haha)
The habit is – Twitter, email, Viber, and then check some Yummly for dinner or if I’m tired or I just want to go out — Zomato it is. Of course, Spotify all day and maybe Flipboard for the latest or Pocket for some easy reads. The list doesn’t end there as I have over 50 apps on my phone! You see, it’s like 50% of my life is now app-and-phone-dependent (no kidding).
And it just never ends.
So if you’re like me who lives the digital life (you know you do), then let’s go to the Digital Lifestyle Expo at the Mega Fashion Hall (omg I live so near!) Lots of emerging technologies – gadgets, apps, and a whole lot more. Find more details after the jump!
Digital innovations are changing the way we live and communicate. Technology experts have seen the rise of new trends in consumer behavior as mobile device usage continues to increase.
Every day, people are more drawn into living the digital lifestyle. The increased ubiquity of smartphones, tablets and similar gadgets, the birth of innovative data plans, and the abundance of various apps are shaping the way Filipinos live, communicate and connect with each other. What they download, explore, and share online define their identity and lifestyle as digital citizens.
Constantly being connected is now a must to stay abreast and be “in the know” of the latest events and trends. Whether for working or playing wherever and whenever, downloading the latest app that supports a passion for health, worthy advocacy or anything in between, streaming music and videos, playing online or as simple as making one’s presence felt or voice heard on social media through posts, likes and shares, no doubt the digital life is being embraced by each one member of the hyper-connected generation, making deeper and lasting connections through the power of the Internet.
With that in mind, leading digital innovator Globe Telecom will host the Philippines’ first digital lifestyle event to bring together the latest digital trends, gadgets, and applications that can enrich today’s mobile experience. The Wonderful World with Globe: Philippine Digital Lifestyle Expo will be held on August 22 and 23, 2014, at the Mega Fashion Hall of SM Megamall, in Ortigas, Pasig City from 11am to 9pm.
“We are very excited to be one of the frontrunners in yet another technological revolution as more users are now embracing their digital lifestyle powered by their smartphones. We would like to invite all netizens to check out the Wonderful World with Globe: Philippine Digital Lifestyle Expo and see for themselves the latest and the hottest innovations, offers, and services offered by Globe and our partners,” says Peter Bithos, Chief Operating Advisor at Globe.
The event is open to the public where they can take part and enjoy the fun booths, interactive activities and games, exciting prizes and freebies and surprise celebrity guests. All these and more are lined-up for the netizens in attendance as they embrace a wonderful digital lifestyle powered by Globe.

He likes to believe that his name is so unique he feels confident to ask you to search his name instead of giving his social media handles.
