A.Shop: The Best

Apple Stores abroad have their Genius Bars. In Manila, we have Erwin of the A.Shop.
By special arrangement, I got him to fix my Macs at home. He came here last Friday, Saturday and Monday to fix my two problematic Macs I was ready to throw out the window. Now they’re working beautifully.


For Mac repairs, I only trust the A.Shop.

Good news from Cathay Pacific

Make that good news for claustrophpobic fearful flyers.
Cathay Pacific is launching a new Premium Economy Class in March 2012, offering perks not available in the existing Economy Class.
On the ground, you’ll have access to priority check-in at dedicated counters and priority boarding before Economy Class passengers—plus an increase in baggage allowance from 20kg to 25kg (weight system) or two pieces of baggage at 25kg (piece system).
On board you’ll have more privacy in a separate, smaller cabin located just before Economy Class—with no more than 34 seats.
Inflight catering service will have juice and champagne as welcome drinks, and will be serving higher-quality meals. You’ll get an environmentally-friendly amenity kit, a larger pillow and noise-cancelling headset for use during the journey.

The new seats are wider and will provide more room to stretch out with a seat pitch measuring 38 inches—six inches more than Economy Class—and extended recline.
Additional comforts include a large meal table, cocktail table, footrest, 10.6-inch personal television, in-seat power outlet, multi-port connector for personal devices, and extra personal stowage space.
Premium Economy Class will be introduced on long-haul flights, beginning with the Sydney, Toronto, Vancouver and New York routes, followed by London, Los Angeles, San Francisco, continental Europe, and other key routes as the number of aircraft fitted with the product increases.
Cathay Pacific plans to have 87 aircraft fitted with the new class by the end of 2013.

(The question is: will these be available for short trips, cause I wouldn’t mind trying this one for Hong Kong?)
