BitTorrent, Jobs’ Apple and Dying Technologies

28 Oct

Came across few nice articles today. Worth reading at least once. Huge information in all of them.

Quoting them below

BitTorrent’s Bram Cohen Isn’t Limited by Asperger’s

When I read it I couldn’t understand how it would be to think having the syndrome. BitTorrent has single handedly pushed the P2P architecture to grow exponentially

Being Steve Jobs’ Boss

John Sculley talking about how it was being Steve Jobs’ boss and reiterating the fact that Apple is not  brand without Steve Jobs being there to handle it, nurture it. It gives me immense pleasure everytime I read about Jobs. There are so many stories about him, some true, some not. Some untold and some secret. This article not only deals with the p.o.v of a CEO who himself quotes the job was much more suited for Jobs, but also deals with how the competition and other biggies in Japan like Sony was an inspiration for Jobs

Twenty Dying Technologies

Reading this was a pleasure, with WiTricity being my most favorite tech that would and should probably take over conventional electricity. As a child, 10 years old, I used to think we could have electricity that would travel not thru wires but wirelessly. I was never exposed to so much that could know that there were places where I could have gone to research

This set of 20 tech that would soon get extinct is a nice morning read for tech-enthusiasts

I’m OK

3 Oct

I’am OK

Simple phrase. Three words.
Weight of each indicidually is so nil

Together they are powerful

When you hear them, you may not know what else is going on in the mind of the one who says it

Sometimes, its just a way to not let small talk take place

Sometimes, it may be the end of a long fight

Sometimes, it may be the 3rd response in an IM chat. A response that triggers so many questions in the mind of one who reads it

Sometimes it also depicts a state of mind, that makes other perceive you as disinterested

Sometimes, its a motivator for oneself to lift up from a state of dejection.

Sometimes, it just depicts that you are not interested in any further discussions or you just don’t wanna listen to any excused anymore.

You may wanna ponder that when on phone, you say "I’m OK" to a friend who calls you after a long time, you may be hiding something either from yourself or the person on phone

If you stress more on "am", it may describe some sort of frustration inside.

Stressing on "OK" may signify that you are just not concerned at all about any thing or least interested in listening to the other party.
