Business is a funny thing. One day you think you have understood it all and next day you realize you know nothing about anything.
But the business of technology, is just much more bizarre. Especially when it comes to expensive tech. In a previous blogpost, I had discussed why Apple are selling less phones in 2019. I had likened Apple to a jewelry owner, which is by now, a commonly known analogy among the tech community. ‘Luxury’ as they call it.
Take a guess! What is the five letter word you see in all answers that starts with P and ends with an E? One that you cannot ignore from this conversation?
What was that?
Pence? Pence?! What?! Why would I talk about Pen.. Ok never mind. It’s price. Yes, I know…shocker.
As of January 2019 reports, the market share of Apple has dropped from 2.71% in Nov 2017 to 1.16% in Nov 2018. …
This will be a short note where I hopefully convince you against taking the stupid decision of buying an SLR camera and letting it collect dust in the corner of the shelf that you never even bother to open.
Yes, these things.
I own one of them and I know how difficult it is to keep up any motivation of using them regularly.
Now straight to the point
1. If you just want good photographs, get a nice smart-phone with a killer camera. Most modern smart-phones have tremendously capable cameras. …
In 1923 Talbot Mundy wrote a book titled ‘The Nine Unknown’. The book is a slow read — I am yet to finish it almost a year after I picked it up. But the book sparked a conspiracy theory — what if Emperor Ashoka of the Mauryan Dynasty set up 9 immortals to guard the planet?
Ah yes, a great topic for tea-time discussion.
There is absolutely no evidence that this was a real thing in the Mauryan dynasty. But I don’t want to deny it entirely.
There are two sides to this theory though. Mauryans were ridiculously good at…
I would never join Crossfit.
Please! Hear me out. No?
Cross-fitter Kaitlyn Kassis to grab your attention, obviously.
Got your attention?
I am neither against Cross-fit nor am I trying to gatekeep traditional workouts. As an everyday Joe who lifts, here is why I personally would not join cross-fit, nor recommend it to my friends
Ever wonder why you rarely upgrade your laptops while the phone in your hand keeps changing at the drop of a hat? You could technically buy a laptop with the same price of a flagship phone now. Laptop prices also don’t drop as much as mobiles, do they? Why?
Well they would, if their ‘cycle time’ was as less as mobile phones. Laptops are mostly long-term investments, while mobiles are relatively short-term ones.
An average cash-conscious user would change mobiles once in 2 years max. A tech-geek would probably do it every year. Most tech companies release products that remain…
Sometime it does feel like life isn’t fair. And we would be right to think that. One more thing that confirms it, is the failure and subsequent stop of the awesome Parle Cafe Cuba soft drink in India.
On the topic of it’s death, I was still wondering whether I should call it. I am not sure if Parle has pulled the plug on it. But looking at the fact that it is not available anywhere I guess it is time to call it. …
I see a lot of online support for VSK party leader and veteran politician Thol. Thirumaavalavan’s speech on the content in the Manusmriti text and his call for bans.
I also see this topic quickly being steered in two directions depending on which side of the political aisle you find yourself. Hey, pick your poison, I don’t care.
But the bottomline — Do not support calls for banning stuff, especially books. Just don’t.
Why you ask? Oh I should be one of the Sanghis, right? I am just dressing my opinion as a well-informed view. Right?
What he did…
How can a jewelry offend Indians? 2020 is really getting crazier by the day. But then again, we aren’t seeing the advert for gold, are we? That ship has sailed.
Well,the AD is not offensive. Of course, I am not offended easily so there is that. Even otherwise, there is nothing in the AD that is offensive, except their portrayal of such a close MIL-DIL. Real life meh aisa hoti hai kya?(does this happen in real life?)
hint — nope.
The implication of that AD is why there is so much outrage. I won’t blame Tata or Tanishq for coming…
