Apple Mac Store – review

leave a comment »

I have been playing around with the Apple Mac Store over the last weekend and found it absolutely enthralling and easy to use.

I wanted Keynote which I had been using on my MacBook White from quite a while. However, the iWork 09 website gives me the Keynote as part of the total package to buy and install or ship to.

I then tried to goto the Keynote website and it connected me to the Mac Store where I could purchase a licensed copy of Keynote for just $19.99 without Numbers and Pages (part of the bundle with iWork 09). Read the rest of this entry »

IIFT EMIB 2004 - 2006 (Source: http://www.iift.edu)

It’s been exactly five long years since I joined for my EMIB (Executive Masters in International business) from the prestigious Indian Institute of Foreign Trade (IIFT), New Delhi! I joined it on 9th August 2004. Time flies! But can say for sure that this degree has been my best investment made on education till date. With zero opportunity cost (it was held only on weekends – non stop for one and a half years) and the schedule was honestly grueling with no respite and kept us busy on weekdays with assignments, quizzes every weekend, mid-term exams, classes and of course, the end terms.

A Rolodex

A Rolodex

With my burgeoning business level contacts I have managed to so carefully develop over the years, I wanted a Rolodex desperately to store all my business card contacts and have been researching a lot on the Internet. I have a powerful contact list on my LinkedIn as well but I still am a firm believer that the old fashioned way of business cards is key to successful business relationship building.

NLSIU classes/update

leave a comment »

It’s been a long time since I blogged about this endeavor I have undertaken.

I have to say that I found this course more demanding than what I envisaged. I had to postpone taking up my examinations to Jan 2010 due to time constraints I faced in balancing both my studies at NLSIU and my work schedule that has become hectic. I had 4 papers and 1 viva voce that I will take up in January 2010. Read the rest of this entry »

Economic recession and a pandemic – correlation

leave a comment »

It appears this correlation appears to be quite high. The last economic crisis hit in 2001 with the dot com and telecom bubble burst and that was instantly followed by 9/11 and then the SARS crisis in South East Asia and the Anthrax cases in USA. Read the rest of this entry »

Brawn GP scores 1/2 in the Australian Grand Prix

leave a comment »

Congratulations to Ross Brawn. The ex-bosses of this team back at Japan must be kicking themselves that they were so near yet so far from their incorrect decision in withdrawing from F1 a tad early after all the hardwork!

But, nothing can be taken away from Ross Brawn and the way he interpreted the rules for the 2009 season and even managed to rope in their first main sponsor, Sir. Richard Branson’s Virgin group!
