Apple – The Journey from iPod to iMat

with 2 comments

While the world is going from minis to micros to nanos, Apple is doing just the opposite. The (recently) launched iPad is an indication. A bestselling innovation called the iPod has given way to something called an iPad. Now netizens are wondering what would be next. And when it comes to netizens, you cannot help but find creative souls lurking all around. Have a look at the following pic-story of how Apple will go from iPod to iMat – the move from micro to mini to the all-encompassing.

The journey of Apple

Now enough of Apple, let us come to Swans. I am currently going through a book by N.N. Taleb, namely ‘Black Swan’. A book on the human psychology of generalization of facts and figures and how that can create unwanted results. It speaks about the nature of Man to simplify the past and use those to predict the future – a problem so well embedded in the human mind that it is bound to bring troubles if not handled properly. Taleb wants us only to make note of the facts, and not try to infer anything from that – a task so herculean that we would be extremely tired even if we do it for just one afternoon.  I will be back with more on the book in my next post, when I complete the book. Till then, have a good time.

Sustainability

with 2 comments

I got a lot of feedback after I wrote the last post(here), stating how true it is that those that preach should start practicing too. For those new, it was an open letter to Sirji telling him that though his IDEA ads were good enough to inspire thoughts of sustainability in the masses, he should also pay attention to stuffs like book/movie launches or CD launches where a tremendous amount of paper work is used.

Anyways, however, a wierd thought popped into my mind yesterday. What actually does Sustainability mean, when it comes to Trees and Plants? Is it the use of natural products which can be recycled easily (which in turn leads to excess cutting of trees) or lesser use of products made from trees and plants and moving to other forms which can be easily disposed off without threatening Nature.

Here’s two pictures. Vote for the one you like:

Some Posts and Prints

In continuing with my previous post, I am still trying to unclutter my mind, and making it more usable. However, the problem is that the Shift key is not working- so I am not able to do a Shift-Del. Whatever I am deleting from my mind, seems to stay there at the back of my mind in the Recycle Bin. Hence, till I am able to free my mind, here’s some pictures you can ponder over.
