Blogger. The rise of the opportunist.

emacs_tetris.pngI am a believer of opportunities. I believe we should live and work like a TETRIS game. One should be able to identify, recognize and spot an opportunity. If one stick to an idea, just like in a tetris game, he or she will be game over.

A good blogger should be able to identify, recognize and spot the trend or buzz surrounding their community issues. Are you the one? If yes, go and write about it. There are few of a good free blogging site or provider. You may try these free blogging site or provider:

  1. WordPress : http://www.WordPress.com
  2. Blogger: http://www.Blogger.com
  3. Multiply: http://www.Multiply.com
  4. Live Journal: http://www.LiveJournal.com

Will opportunist be able to identify, recognize and spot in business? I am not so sure, but this is what I am sure of; by using and training your brain to identify, recognize and spot an opportunity, you are increasing your chance to fill any business opportunity and exposures. Start writing and posting. Let the readers decide how good you are.

Mac OS, what’s holding me back?

Mac OS is an alternative for alternatives without an alternative, switching away from Microsoft Windows to Mac OS will make me stuck with Apple hardware. Is this enough reason to switch from Windows to Mac OS? Certainly not.

  1. I love Mac OS interface. Who doesn’t? But it’s not enough reasons for me to switch to Mac OS and here are some of the reasons:
    • Using Mac OS is like using an exclusive technology. Apple’s Mac OS only have 5% of the market share, that’s mean that you are a handicap to the 95% of the technology. You wouldn’t want that.
    • Using Mac OS is like using an exclusive technology. It means that once you’ve stuck with the beauty and the user friendly user interface, you would not want to use Windows anymore. This is not helping our career moves, is it? You would not be useful or worth hiring for again, because most Mac OS users will keep whining how great is the user interface and how suck is the Windows. Who want to hire a whiner?
    • Using Mac OS is like using an exclusive software and hardware. Try to find the softwares and the hardware’s spare parts for Apple machine, you wont find the alternatives, the softwares are very limited.
  2. I hate Windows Vista user interface. Who doesn’t? But it’s not enough reasons for me to switch to Mac OS and here are some of the reasons:
    • Using Windows Vista is like using a beta technology. It’s always crashes and it’s hard to use. People say when you can master the difficult one, the easy one is like a walk in the park. Beside, Windows have the 95% of the market share. I stick with the winner.
    • Using Windows Vista is like using a beta technology. You may be stuck with the ugly duckling, but majority of the people can afford it and they use it personally and in a corporate world.
    • Using Windows Vista is like using a beta technology with so many softwares and hardwares galore. Viva (suck) Windows.

The Next E90 Nokia Communicator. What is it going to be?

nokiae90communicator.jpg

I have been using Nokia E90 since August 2007 and I was glad that the successor of Nokia 9500 and Nokia 9300i was finally had Vibration for silent call and Radio to fight my boredom while waiting for my business clients. The GPS is not much of a help though.I hope the next E90 Nokia Communicator would have:
  1. Sending Option, so I can schedule my sms when to be delivered, just like my previous communicator; Nokia 9500 and Nokia 9300i.
  2. Faster processor for faster processing power. I love Symbian OS and I hope to see more processing power.
  3. Slimmer device. Yes, slimmer please, it’s quite hefty you know.

If I don’t see those improvement in the next Nokia Communicator device, I would not want to spend premium price anymore, I would rather wait for Nokia E71 for the same features but slimmer and lighter.
