Polaroid continues to stay relevant in the photography industry by upgrading its products using modern technology. An example of this is the Polaroid Snap Touch.

The Polaroid Snap Touch is an instant digital camera that lets you print your photos whenever you want, similar to its predecessor – the Polaroid Snap. The main differences between the two? The Polaroid Snap Touch, which retails for P10,990, has a better camera (13 megapixel), has image stabilization, can record HD videos and can serve as a mobile printer. The most glaring upgrade is the 3.5” touchscreen LCD which gives users the freedom to view/edit photos on the go.

Here’s a short unboxing video of the Polaroid Snap Touch:

New Nike Kobe A.D. examines psychology of color

Kobe Bryant’s Mamba Mentality encompasses both the physical and psychological elements of basketball. While his passion for practice and training is well documented, the five-time champion’s curiosity about the external factors that influence human behavior is lesser known. One aspect of that interest is the psychology of color — particularly in understanding the correlations between color, attitude and emotion.

The all-new, mid-top KOBE A.D. shoe applies Bryant’s intrigue of how color personally affects him to a five-shoe collection illuminating the origins and depth of his unyielding quest for improvement.

Here’s what Metta World Peace had to say about the Lakers’ Jordan Clarkson…

Metta World Peace made his first visit to the Philippines over the weekend. The former NBA star was flown in by SnippetMEdia and spent several hours in Manila for a brief meet and greet with some of his Filipino fans.

Metta, who is formerly known as Ron Artest, last played for the Los Angeles Lakers, where he was teammates with Kobe Bryant and Filipino-American Jordan Clarkson.

In a conversation with SnippetMEdia’s Tina Maralit, Metta had a few kind words for the Fil-Am guard, saying he’s glad to see how far Clarkson’s basketball career has gone.

“Jordan is a good player,” MWP told Maralit. “He went from not believing he can make it in the NBA… I remember when he was young, he would say that he didn’t know. Then he went from that to going to a small school, being a second round pick (in the NBA Draft), and the rest is history.”

Clarkson was selected by the Washington Wizards as the 46th overall pick in the second round of the 2014 NBA Draft. He was immediately traded to the Los Angeles Lakers and went on to become a member of the NBA All-Rookie First Team in his first year in the league.

Since then he has become one of the Lakers’ consistent scorers, whether he’s starting or coming off the bench. In the offseason last summer, the 25-year-old Clarkson signed a deal with the Lakers worth $50 million over four years.

“It shows that just because you’re not the best on paper, it doesn’t mean you can’t be the best on the court, and Jordan is an example,” Metta added. “Jordan is doing well. He’s got another huge contract.”

In the 2016-17 season, Clarkson put up averages of 14.7 points, 3.0 rebounds and 2.6 assists, while shooting 45% from the field. The 6-5 guard is looking to build on his impressive year and head into this season focused on helping the Lakers reach the playoffs again.

“Now he just gotta win,” said Metta World Prace. “But you know, he is already winning because he (has) fulfilled his dream.”
