"Corporate Socialism" - the Idea Makes Me Sick →
Americans are angry that we’ve gone from capitalism to oligarchy With how things (disportionate tax cuts, printing US money, stagnant jobless rate, compromised net neutrality policies) are shaping up, i am afraid I will have to agree.
Again, another objective post following RIM’s Q3 earning report. I think the long term success of the company will have to hinge on the Playbook. It sounds like it needs to penetrate into the enterprise tablet market as well as have its feature (esp the QNX OS) trickling down to the BlackBerry phones. 2011 is a year to watch.
Drew Gardner's Brown Bag Video Series
Drew Gardner gave two very important tips in the linked video tip. I am just going to quote him here: On Light & Perspective, when you throw light far into the distance [in the background], you get a great feeling of depth and perspective. The camera is shot at very low at 35mm to make the subject appear bigger. ...

He describes the essence in the Cancun Accord and explains why some people are touting this agreement as a success for climate progress. In addition, he explores how agreement was struck in the meeting in Cancun. A great insight into how a productive multinational summit meeting can transpire.
Maintaining a Balanced View
I follow a lot of blog around the websphere. And my choice of readers often reflect my bias regarding to a certain topic. So when it comes to technology, I get spontaneously pulled to the sites that holds a favourable view to the products I like and want to see succeed. Me being an Apple fan. Or fan boy. I enjoy my daily read of Daring Fireball (http://daringfireball.net/),...
Com'on, We're Talking About Phones, RIM!
If observing the technology market for the last 2 years have taught me anything, it is that sensational death claim about a company or a product is almost always ignorant. I don’t want to make claims that would leave me feeling like an idiot a month later. Still though, when I see Mike Lazaridis, Co-CEO of RIM, gibber an answer when asked a very straightforward question at “D Dive into...
Do I Love My Wife? An Investigative Report →
How do I love thee? I love thee with serotonin produced by my raphe Nuclei. I love thee with testosterone receptors deep in my hypothalamus. I love thee with dopamine that floods my primitive lizard brain. Actually, I hope I love my wife with all my major brain parts — but who knows? The truth is, I don’t know how I love her. That’s the whole point of today’s experiment. We’ll see. Love,...
Shooting in a Shitty Raining Day
In a photo shoot I did for my friend the other day, we have to work with some pretty crappy weather condition. The mid december rain was pouring down and the sky is dark, and yet that did not deter us to take the photo shoot outside. What he was looking for is an action shot in the outdoor. He would run across the frame from left to right, and in the middle of the photo is where I will capture...

Cute stuff. Exactly how it goes down here at home. Unfortunately, in my case, Internet still wins at the end.

A Fundamental Analysis on Why RIM Is Hurting →
There has been a lot of unfavourable speculation on the future healthy of RIM’s business. Most of these speculation are based on shallow and superficial understanding of the fast changing technology markets. The author, a former executive in the top firm, applies a different approach where he examines the trends behind the financial number and proposes his own hypothesis on how RIM is doing....
WHAT IS JULIAN ASSANGE UP TO? →
It surprises me that in the midst of media hoopla about the wikileak website, the media decides to focus more on where the website is hosted instead of the motivation behind Wikileak’s controversial dump. This article acts as a window into the mind of its founder, Julian Assange, and attempts to explains the reason behind his recent leaks. An excellent read.
