    just recently they resorted to cutting up defective cards in half, tapos ung binibigay sa tao.
    Nah. They're just using that as an excuse to cut up the old cards with Erap's face on it. Haven't you noticed the cut up cards look like the ones with Erap's face on it, except they use the side without his face?</Conspiracy Theory>

    I dunno. Stored value cards seem to be missing, but the other day I bought a stored value card from Santolan which is a relatively deserted station. Shortage/conspiracy or not, it's annoying.

    di na kasi pinapagamit yung may erap na pic na mrt cards... kaya nagkakaubusan ng ticket... para maging safe... ginupit nila yung mukha ni erap... tapos iaabot na lang sa guard... pero now... may nag sponsor daw na bank for these new mrt cards... di na nila nilagyan ng mukha ng presidente... kasi baka bigla na naman mapalitan presidente natin... mahirap na...

    pulitika nga naman...

    If every one was honest, there would be no need for tickets or turnstiles...

    Di ba pwedeng flash pass na lang para walang contact?

    parang mali nga ung term na sponsor e...it's more of the MRT selling ad space on the cards. heck, the MRT carriages themselves have samsung and PCX plastered over them. the profits they get from the 'rental space' would be more than enough to cover the card costs. it's virtually money for nothing if you think about it. takot lang siguro sila na mag place ng ad ung opposition, kaya ibinalot sa misteryo ng sponsor sponsor :p

    anyways...got up waaay too early today and got myself 2 stored value cards. ayoko rin naman mag hoarding, but knowing how....ingenious pinoys are, baka me magbenta na nyan sa black market :D

    I think this is where we're heading - this was spotted at the MRT3 Boni Avenue Station - use of cellphone to enter MRT turnstiles. Notice at the right photo that the cellphone is tapped to a reader - this definitely isn't a GSM-based transaction interface. I think we will be slaving some sort of a contactless smartcard or RFID chip at the back of our cellphones. Nice if we have smart chip functionality with the cellphone. Possible ito diba? - SIMM Toolkit Interface programming into Symbian - this would be great.



    I think it's just a matter of time - hi-tech na rin tayo dito sa pinas.
