How An iPad Fits In Perfectly

Back in 2010 when the iPad was about to be launched there were rumours floating around about it. Some were expecting a large touch screen device with a full fledged OSX running on it and others were expecting a blown out iPhone. Well, it was none. It was an iPad, runs iOS, has its own set of customers, has its own set of usage and most importantly has its own base of apps with unparalleled usability. Pundits and gurus predicted not much usage factor for iPad and were quite skeptical about it, but as usual Apple proved the potential of iPad (not tablet!). It changed the game altogether.

Consumer Care Woes: 1. HTC in India [Update]

April 4th 2012, the time when I was blown away by a new gizmo once again. It was the launch day of the brand new One series from HTC in India which started off with the HTC One X and HTC One V.

I finally got my HTC One X from one of the best and budding e-commerce sites in india BuyThePrice. (Order No. BTP 358638).

GMAT Prep Series: 3. How I Am Preparing For GMAT In Three Months

 Scheduling your time properly is quite important for GMAT. You can spend as much time as possible or as little time as possible. You need to spend a week for analyzing where you stand before you start off with your preparation. I took a mock test right before I started off my preparation. I scored badly in verbal and I knew I had to spend lots of time on verbal. I got a 49/51 in quants though. Right then I decided to spend most of my preparation time on verbal only. This is how I am planning to prepare for my GMAT in three months.

Once he and his family were driving through France and they happened to spot beautiful picture perfect cows by which they were quite amazed and kept staring at them through their drive for a while. But after sometime things started to get boring, no the cows didn’t change, they were still the same picture perfect cows but they got more boring now. The only thing that could catch their attention further would be a Purple Cow! That is something remarkable!

Windows 8 Will Spell Huge Success For Microsoft

You have to agree, Microsoft already has it’s fair share of success with the beta launch of Windows 8. People just love it! Accepted that there are some minor annoying features, especially the lack of the legendary “Start” menu but it’s all for good. People will eventually get used to it. Microsoft has done something amazing at last. It learnt a lot from the modern trend of mobile computing. Windows 8 seems to be a proper mix of desktop class computing with ease of mobile computing.
