Bill Gates = street cred +1, 3 Geekerisms, 2007s 3 big web trends chartered

Most of the time we all think Bill Gates is the ultimate evolution form of the geek:

– The kid you payed out can now buy your family and make them dig for lemmings

– Likes computers and has oversized frames that make Steve Urkle look less retarded

– At one stage (for a long ass time) had social skills that equate to that of a home schooled man girl (WTF?).

ANYWAY this clip made my respect for him that is already upmost, skyrocket. Not only  has he created an empire, he knows how to have a good laugh. The man is a role model for all, unless you think otherwise but meh.

 Great post by Steve Rubel from Micropersuasion –  And the 3 web trends are:

1. Social Networks

2.  Microblogging

3. Web Applications

Check the link for a detailed synopsis.

Here’s a great article.

A Mexican boy by the name of Diego, glued his hand to his bed because he didn’t want to go to school hahaha

‘Palacios said Diego sneaked into the kitchen in the early morning to get the industrial glue, which he then slathered on his right hand. She didn’t hear him get up, but later awoke and found him watching TV with his hand stuck to the bed, she told Mexican newspaper El Universal.’

Best quote today.  LINK to the article

On a green note for 2008 –

A list of 21 things we supposedly didn’t we could recycle!

Not only do i dislike gym buffs I dislike the actual gyms. From being tried to be sold to sign a contract that was 2 years+ to being hounded there after to join. If you’re looking to join a gym put some serious thought into it before you sign a contract – go for a short term or a per session basis.

Here’s a super list to keep you in check before you make a ‘dumb and dumber’ moment as you sign the contract.

Finally for all those that are looking into buying a next- gen gaming console. Here’s a chart to help you make your decision that much more easier. I have a wii….and a PC.

Google Android’s Significance, The Real Facebook Feed, Iron Mike for Motivation GRR!

Actually understand Google Android’s significance.

Until this post by Andreas I had a limited idea of why Google’s Android was causing such a stir in the mobile/cellular world.

“The Android operating system for mobile phones is no different. It’s a platform for building and channeling inventory, much like a web browser. In fact we could say that Android is similar to a browser on steroids, in that it allows developers to easily build any connected handset application anywhere within the mobile user journey, and within those create more inventory.” Read on…(LINK)

The Real Facebook Feed

IRON MIKE’s MOTIVATION

Now whether you love or hate the man Iron Mike Tyson will always be a KO king. Some of his quotes in my opinion are just a good a motivation than any other. Disagree? Check the clip at the end of the quotes.

“Lennox Lewis, I’m coming for you man. My style is impetuous. My defense is impregnable, and I’m just ferocious. I want your heart. I want to eat his children. Praise be to Allah!”

“You got nothing coming, man. I’m going to enjoy this fight.”

On his time in prison

“But you really have to look at the science of the situation. You guys come here to talk and report but you don’t actually look at the facts of what this business is all about. The best thing that happened to those guys and they should stand on their mother’s shoulders and kiss my ass because I went to prison or they would not be existing right now. They’d be a flash in the pan and would have made some money and opened up a restaurant or bar somewhere where they live at.”
“Without discipline, no matter how good you are, you are nothing! One day, and I might not be around; you’re going to meet a tough guy who takes your best shot. He’ll keep coming because he’s tough. Don’t get discouraged. That’s when the discipline comes in.”

On Boxing

“How dare these boxers challenge me with their primitive skills? It makes me angry. They’re just as good as dead.”

“My power is discombobulatingly devastating I could feel is muscle tissues collapse under my force. It’s ludicrous these mortals even attempt to enter my realm.”

“It’s interesting that you put me in the league with those illustrious fighters [Muhammad Ali, Joe Louis, Jack Johnson], but I’ve proved since my career I’ve surpassed them as far my popularity. I’m the biggest fighter in the history of the sport. If you don’t believe it, check the cash register.”

Maybe not your conventional motivational speech but a nice way to wake you up from whinging (if you view situations in a similar light to Mike).

Zune? iPod, Google opens OpenSocial, Give yoself a ROFL!

 Hey guys,

Awfully sorry on the delay! I now have the connection I need to hook up a mean post!

Oh by the way, I just saw the movie Munich, an eye-opening story on the Israeli and Palestinian fighting based on the 1972 Munich massacre. If you haven’t seen it yet, feel free to check it out some time. 8.5/10

Hope we are all well, shall we begin?

Tech Love

So Microsoft’s answer to the iPod – the Zune has a new campaign, do you like it? Too bad I just bought a new 3rd gen iPod nano, now it took a little time to grow on me but I guess I’m slowly becoming a fanboy…damnit!

Google opens OpenSocial and provides Orkut support, are you social? To learn more about OpenSocial go here.

This is for the marketing minded, how much advertisers pay for the attention of NYC – a nice way to ballpark figures for campaigns. I hope you enjoyed as much as I did. It’s a video clip by the way (less than 2 minutes and worth it).

Here’s a great link for the Creative minds, 30+ links for Mind Mapping Tools!

Lifestyle

I had to post this hehe This is how to get laid in 1977 and your ass kicked in 2007. NICE as ice with tonic.

Best Bollywood clip translation EVAR! ooooooooooaaaaaaaaauuuueee Benny Lava (watch it and you’ll LOL)

Now I love my gaming so when in need of an energy boost or the extra kilo that will turn me into Gimli I turn to my list of top 23 snacks for gaming! Some are on the edge of pushing the edge of whether you are a fully fledged macho male – but if you like pedicures, manicures etc.  then read on past #13  Our friendly local sys admin and I decided #1-13 is just fine for the majority of us. 🙂

Scientists find the oldest living animal. Then kill it. The title made me ROFL OL.

What’s a ROFL without a pic?

idiot

Have a great week guys!

Gmail enables IMAP support,Best TV links, Reach Your Dream, TechCrunch is my BFF?

Hullo and greetings all!

I wish you that we are all having a week of fruition~

Shall we begin? Here’s a random funny pic to get us started…think North Korea and Team America.

Here’s a random link…8 super heroes that are actually douche bags LOL I don’t think Ironman can ever be a douchebag though damnit! He’s way too awesome to be deemed so, anyone agree with me? Please agree. It’s Ironman. IRONMAN.

Tech Love

Gmail is enabling IMAP support,  What is IMAP you ask? TechCrunch explains it perfectly:

If you don’t know about IMAP, it allows you to manage your email account from different computers and clients without having to worry about replication issues. For example, if you delete an email message in Thunderbird, that message will no longer show up when you use a webmail interface. If you were to use POP – the primary alternative to IMAP – then you would have to manually delete the message from both places because a copy of each message would be downloaded to Thunderbird. Therefore, IMAP provides a much more synchronized solution whereas POP fails to realize that you want to deal with your email once for all points of access.

so feel free to email me with a question or opinion, suggest a humorous pic, clip and more!

Why not veg out with your PC or (for the luxurious) laptop by watching TV on it, now it’s not rocket science but I do prefer seeing my shows when I want to see them. So here’s a nice list of TV links for all! HUrrah! (Thanks Teddy)

If you is lonelies like I is and need a BFF (best friend forever), Techcrunch’s Crunchgear introduces BFF! The basic description is:

‘a sideblog that enables you, our potential and actual readers, to talk back, respond to posts, and generally try your hand at blogging so we can drink more Tab and watch daytime TV.’

Lifestyle

IMO (in my opinion) we should all have dreams/ goals/ visions that are true renditions of who and where we want to position ourselves in life. At the moment, I just want to learn, learn and learn about this industry and grow my passion for it so I can effectively become someone like the Muhammad Ali of Geek Marketing.

Well, (sorry for the side track) we should help our dream become reality, here’s a nice post on how we can make our dreams that one step closer.

Why peoples in the 18-35 demographics should save for the future. Phew glad I’m pretty frugal….If only eBay didn’t exist…

We can fit one more pic can’t we?

Here it is! Don’t mess with my homies y’all!

homie

Have a great week all!
