iPod Nano

I was just reading how easily they get scratched on The Register. I have seen earlier iPods look absolutely horrendous (due to scratching)... Looks like the 4th Gen Nano's just about the same.

Anyways... I agree apple's fantastic when it comes to design.... Though they are crap when it comes to making it. Oh well the fanboys... Or rather the geeks who just like to show that they are so bloody hip deserve to get slapped... not by be but by the company itself... Hold on.. they already are...

I think everybody should do something... Buy the Nano's and keep them with the rest of the trophies.... Maybe one day sell it off to antics... Oh shit... It just got scratched on the way to the blimey shop...

Rich Dad, Poor Dad

I am just on verge of finishing this book Rich Dad, Poor Dad by Robert T. Kiyosaki. It's a great book. To the point and very right...
I have always been a believer of 'Show me the Money' (from Jerry Maguire) and I have a plan formulating in my brain. I am broke (as he says broke is temporary)... got married last month didn't I %>) but I will keep the advice in mind.

I have also decided to pursue a marketing course at some point. We shall see how that goes.

I have also decided that I am done investing in gadgets. I think it's time for real assets rather than stupid computers and bikes and pocket pcs and shite. Only time will tell.

The Road Not Taken - Robert Frost

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that, the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.


I was going through a book called Rich Dad, Poor Dad by Robert T. Kiyosaki and i came across The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost. I think I remember it from my school days but it was nice to read it again. It's more inspiring now then it was back then.

The Apple Product Cycle

I have been following the The Apple Product Cycle for a while and this description just hit the nail... it's so funny and to the point... I bet the poor bastard who wrote this, has been getting hate mail all day long ever since he wrote this.
