Lessons from Jobs

Experts—journalists, analysts, consultants, bankers, and gurus can’t “do” so they “advise”. They can tell you what is wrong with your product, but they cannot make a great one. They can tell you how to sell something, but they cannot sell it themselves. They can tell you how to create great teams, but they only manage a secretary. For example, the experts told us that the two biggest shortcomings of Macintosh in the mid 1980s was the lack of a daisy-wheel printer driver and Lotus 1-2-3; another advice gem from the experts was to buy Compaq. Hear what experts say, but don’t always listen to them.

‘What I Learned From Steve Jobs’ by Guy Kawasaki

Thanks, Steve

We don’t get a chance to do that many things, and every one should be really excellent.
Because this is our life.
Life is brief, and then you die, you know?
And we’ve all chosen to do this with our lives.
So it better be damn good. It better be worth it.

Taking notes, the 2.0 way

I learned about it this week and I instatly added it to my wishlist.
I’m talking about the Noteslate.

I’ve been thinking of a device just like this for years now. The practicality it promises to bring to the act of taking or drawing notes looks great.
It’s like a (much!) cheaper iPad without the whole app thingy or like a Kindle with the freedom of drawing on it.
And, besides the drawing component, it will also allow to save the notes into documents that can be edited later, which is great and it’s what makes it the perfect gadget for a web designer!

Can’t wait for these to come out to try them on. And since the base model is being launched June this year, precisely the month of my birthday, the timing couldn’t be better. *wink wink*

Four generations of the iPhone

A neat performance head-to-head between all the four generations of the iPhone.

The iPhone4 is the fastest (of course!). But even so, sorry Steve, I’ll stick with my iPhone 3GS. (or so I thought until now…!)
