Check out this excellent TED Talk on Nowism

I listened to a very thought provoking video on TED Talks. John Ito, the Director of the MediaLabs at MIT. He basically explains the change in business model that the Internet has brought about. He shows the move from a publish or perish to a deploy or die mentality. I would be interested in your thoughts on the talk.

The content still has me thinking 3 days afterwards...

I love my Samsung Tablet/Phablet

After being an iPad person for years I decided to buy the new Samsung Tablet the SM-T705. I have been very surprised how good it is. Light, thin and very easy to use. I feel that Apple is stagnating but Samsung is continually innovating.

I am writing right now using this device. The voice recognition is flawless and the Samsung apps superb. The Google range of Apps work seamlessly compared to the iPad.

I still plan to buy another iPad mini for the toolbox, but it may be some time away.

From a historical perspective the phone component is reminiscent of holding the first brick cell phones, big but much lighter at 42g.

Let's see if the euphoria continues...

A Tip from Napoleon Bonaparte

It is said that Napoleon Bonaparte had a habit of leaving his mail unopened for one month. That way it was very easy to see what was still important.

You need to ask yourself how many of your emails are really important? I have just returned from 3 weeks holiday and I had over 500 emails. The vast majority of them were no longer current.
