Power Mac Center brings Same Unit Repair Program for iPhones in Philippines!

It is a total nightmare when your iPhone malfunctions out of nowhere, more so if you accidentally drop it and the screen gets broken. Although you can simply head to the nearest Apple Store to have your precious smartphone repaired, unfortunately, this isn’t the case for the Philippines. But not until today, as Power Mac Center, the only premium Apple Authorized service provider in the country, launches the Same Unit Repair (SUR) program in the Philippines for supported iPhone models.

Unlike before, whenever there’s hardware issue with an iPhone here in the Philippines, repair turnaround would take weeks to even months, as some repairs would require unit replacements to be shipped from Apple in Singapore. But with the official roll out of Power Mac Center’s Same Unit Repair program, it will take about just 72 hours or 3 days for your iPhone to get fixed and ready for claiming.

Meet Sirri Hadley Rosales Padilla, a Tech Blogger Princess Named After Gadget

I’m very much excited to blog again following a weeklong break, but before I publish yet another real tech news and updates, allow me to share the momentous occasion that officially welcomed me into fatherhood. On August 9th, Thursday at around 12NN, my wife was admitted as she was expected to deliver our first baby. But we knew it, at 4cm cervical opening, the baby won’t be coming out yet ’till the next day. My wife’s physician, whom is the same ob-gyn who took her regular prenatal care, advised us to expect the baby in the afternoon of Friday, August 10th. Unfortunately, at around 6PM on the same day, the cervical opening only progressed to 6cm. It was then that I was worried since my wife has been at the labour room for 30 hours. At around 8:30PM, I was told that the cervical opening widened to 7cm, yet still not enough for the required 9-10cm for normal delivery. Though the alternative way won’t be easy specifically for my wife, we decided to have her underwent an abdominal delivery or caesarean (CS).

I thought the operation would take longer, but surprisingly, while staring at the delivery/operating door less than 30 minutes after the surgery began – someone called my attention to look at the NICU window. And there she was, a 54cm tall and 7 lbs. baby girl, born at exactly 9:42PM of August 10th, 2012. I know you guys can relate the feeling, but yeah, I wanted to touch her yet I can’t. And I couldn’t help myself but keep on smiling. Few minutes later, my wife’s anaesthesiologist went out from the operating room, and though I was told about the infection “vertically transmitted” to the baby – we’re assured she’ll be fine once she finished her medication.
