If you watch the news and follow what's going on, the big players are competing fierce in their fields respectively.

Google dominated the search and their highest income comes from advertorial search such as Adwords. But its declining cause people are searching on facebook's news feed and video upload.

But there is still hope, I said still hope in You Tube search. Oya nowadays people use mobile apps to do things. OK they still have android, but people don't trust it much. Samsung's shipping their products with their own built OS.

They want to create ground breaking things in the Google X division but does it pay off ?
I don't think so. One example is Google Glass is total failure, It shows the lack of public relations strategy for such a huge company, somebody must get fired. And the battery life ? It's like a manufacturing company not even thinking of conducting feasibility study to see whether a product is feasible.

The automated driving car. It's cool but people will buy cars that can drive themselves from big car names such as Toyota or Honda, because if they made one, It must be proven , cause they understand TQM and so forth.
So whats the point in making such projects if they would not succeed? Simple environmental analysis of business and a developing a new business strategy is easy.Stop looking from a small glass and try to see the big picture.

In the cloud they are trying to compete with Microsoft that's has gone dumbfound when they didn't anticipate mobile. But biggest threat for Microsoft is are there any programmers still wanting to keep on making product in their ecosystem ? Dot Net versus PHP Java script , opensource. A cost effective approach on development. Thank god people still trust MS Office to get their work done.

Ok that's it for my analysis right now.We'll touch other companies later. It's not that I don't blog anymore, but that's another long story.

Happy New Year 2015

Why Having a New Year Resolution is Important

As we all know it, 2013 has just arrived, the Armageddon was postponed (l.o.l) and you hear some people asking about your 2013 resolution. And you say to say to yourself what's the big deal?

Do you know that little piece of mindset of yours can be very responsible of your achieving of goals or your successful life at whole? And in the opposite be also responsible of your failures and your 'not so progressing' current conditions.

Experts in psychology says that your talks and your visible attitudes and actions are showing only 20% of you,that inner you. But it represents the 80% of you which is what you always think in your mind. That voice that speaks to you when you wake up in the morning.'Should I do something important today?' Then your other inner voice says 'Naaa... I'd rather go back to sleep'.

This 80% part is a very important. Some call it mindset, Others call it 'what's always in my head' or 'how I think' or 'motivational attitude' . You can have a description of what's going on in the 'inner part ' by talking to someone.

What you should do to it is make it always positive, and make it think as a winner. What people say you have to have a 'positive mental attitude towards life'. In short, remove the negatives of it, the voice that keeps on saying 'You can't do it bro, your a born loser'. In 'Thinking Big' book, the best thing you. could do is fire Mr Negative. Just listen to 'Mr Triump'.

So now, what's the relationship with the resolution?. A resolution is a target. Why do we have to have targets? It's a mark of your achievements. It's the 'high jump' bar that you've set to achieve. Athletes have them but what should stop you of having them?

You know that a friend of yours already 'made it' as they say. And you see your other friend that is what you call relatively left behind. Can you possibly think why this could happen.

It's the targeting and setting the goals. A person who knows his destiny first will achieve it first. It's like you wanna go from Atlanta to New York, take a straight flight then going to other cities first then go to New York. Your college already knew he wanted to be an entrepreneur since college, no wonder he is now enjoying his revenue from his start up company.

Life is a race, If you don't even know where you want to be, than don't complain if your left by the 'train of life'.

I'm unemployed and left behind, what should I do? First fix your inner motivation (that 80%), many people accelerated and achieved the pace. There are plenty of opportunities. And you have hidden talents you've never explored yet.

So make that resolution, it doesn't have to be a very high one. Measure yourself. But if you have achieved it, rise the bar.And don't get satisfied easily, Some people are satisfied with good, but. there ia actually great or excellence.

Great Year of 2013!
