Philippine Idol taking steps vs power voting

The good people behind Philippine Idol are doing their best in ensuing the accuracy of the voting results. This means that the votes should be from those who not only support their finalists, but also those who have watched the program.

After the newly-imposed two-hour voting period, Philippine Idol has apparently cancelled the Vote PINs. Several Netopia outlets that have previously selling Vote PINs no longer offer them. This means, the only way to vote for your Idols is through landline and multiple text messages.

This should be a welcoming note for those who have been complaining that only the finalists with "rich" resources advance unfairly in the Finals.
