Life moves on whether your live it or not. Its almost over a 100 days since I’ve posted some thing on this blog or any blog for that matter. Things have changed dramatically over these days and I feel I just have a small chance before things go even worse. These are the days when things are not right everywhere especially when there is an economic slowdown everywhere. There’s a lot of Negativity in the air that keeps me worried. This is a pretty important time in my career, where I have made some bold decisions at this point of time and I just have a few more days to prove that the decisions I have made were worthy ones for my career. To be precise I live on an edge. Oh I forgot I’ve changed the title of my blog to On the Edge! not because I live on the edge at the moment but because we all live on the Edge!
These are days when I seek motivation. Something that came as gift to motivate me, via google reader was this video which Gaurav Mishra tagged in an inspirational Post a few days ago. I didn’t want to miss this video hence I’ve tagged it to my blog as well ( I thought U would be lazy to head over to Gaurav’s post and watch the video, I would still recommend U to read his post)
Steve Jobs has always been an inspiration for me especially for an apple fan like me. He simply amazes me this time as well. Incase you haven’t watched this video yet, I bet its definitely worth 15 minutes of your life. Let me know if you have something inspirational to share.
Something that really touched me lately is this Be More Ad by O& M for Titan.
Generally I am the person you would say is very cautious of himself and hence very observant of what others are doing and especially very keen on learning from other’s mistakes. This ad just took me by surprise the first time I watched it on TV. The Script of the ad, the message and they way its presented is brilliant. Though there’s another friend here who doubts whether the ad solved its true purpose of its creation. I never before was impressed with Titan till this ad I always wished for a Seiko or a citizen, but the ad has made me consider titan as well. Though am yet not sure when I will actually buy a watch for my self.
This time I am not writing about something that’s not hot but definitely some thing that’s very useful. I came across ALLTOP when I started subscribing to Guy Kawasaki. I always have this desire to play around with new stuff and as usual just started exploring Alltop and guess what it just ROCKS (the WebPages r very neat and interactive and to the point). The concept is pretty simple but at the same time is very useful for lazy guys like me. It saves a lot of time for me at least; I don’t search anymore for news regarding Apple or about the latest in the Browser Wars which I am most interested about nor do I need to subscribe to lots of feeds. These days I just check out on ALLTOP. BTW thinking about how Alltop works, I recollect that REVIEWGIST which came up sometime in 2007 is also pretty similar to Alltop. Reviewgist brings reviews from the top review sites about all the Gadgets to one place just like Alltop which collects all the top stories and classifies them into different subheads. But there are lots of differences with them; one among them is how they collect their data. Review gist crawls those top review sites and condenses them and delivers it to us (sorry for the raw language, I am no software geek) while Alltop imports the feeds from the top sites and they modify it and present it. But am sure the Alltop is way ahead (web2.0 stuff) in terms of its presentation and I especially love that red banner, though it was annoying initially its kind a cool now and am used to it now. So guy’s if u aren’t using any of these, both of them are my recommendations for the month.
