Despre noul iPhone 4G de la un fan iPhone (via Orange UK)

Da, sunt un fan iPhone. Nu pot spune exact de ce dar este telefonul meu preferat. Tocmai am pus mana pe un 4G de la Orange (UK) si l-am testat gandindu-ma la ce motive as putea avea sa nu-mi upgradez iPhone-ul meu. Modelul nou promite sa imbunatateasca fragilitatea si viata scurta a bateriei, aspecte care au fost reclamate la iPhone 3GS. Cu o grosime de 9.3 mm, noul telefon este foarte robust, avand panouri de sticla si o portiune care … pare de otel … rezistent, nu gluma. Are o optiune interesanta “Face Time video calling” pe care o pot … Continue reading Despre noul iPhone 4G de la un fan iPhone (via Orange UK)

Use GPS to Send Buyers in the Right Direction

Not all buyers love jumping in the car with their real estate practitioner to scout out neighborhoods and homes, and some buyers don’t even want to take separate cars. Special situations may require that house hunters take solo trips to look at homes you’ve recommended.   Technology can make such scenarios as fruitful as possible. Practitioners are lending out preprogrammed automotive GPS devices to customers, who can use the technology to guide them from home to home. And some new in-car GPS products have Web access, which adds the ability to upload or remove addresses in real time, while customers … Continue reading Use GPS to Send Buyers in the Right Direction

Ce probleme are sistemul GPS

Un raport dat publicitatii de U.S. Government Accountability Office semnaleaza pericolul ca in 2010 sistemul Navstar GPS sa nu mai poata functiona la parametri normali datorita ritmului lent de inlocuire a satelitilor. Succesul unei tehnologii vine in trei trepte. Prima este trecuta atunci cand oamenii inceteaza sa o priveasca din perspectiva tehnica. Nu ne mai intereseaza cum functioneaza sistemul de televiziune, ne intereseaza doar utilitatea sa. A doua treapta este ubicuitatea. Dar succesul este deplin atunci cand tehnologia intra in sfera implicitului si devine invizibila. De exemplu, Flash. Probabil ca fiecare computer din lume este echipat cu un Flash Player, … Continue reading Ce probleme are sistemul GPS

Nintendo’s Blue Ocean strategy

I found some days ago a very nice article about Nintendo’s “Blue Ocean” business strategy. I promoted some years ago the idea of casual PC games in Romania and at that time I saw some studies telling that women are the biggest consumers of casual games. So what did Nintendo almost three years ago? Created a new market for the brand targeting women and families. Did it work? Damn, the risk was big but they “touched” the jackpot. The article was published by http://www.guardian.co.uk and is signed by Lucy Barrett. Enjoy! For the past two years, Nintendo has been dominating … Continue reading Nintendo’s Blue Ocean strategy
