Apple's Ipad vs Amazon's Kindle

Sunday, January 31, 2010

Amazon has captured market of ebusiness with its Kindle to a good extent. But now Apple ipad's is going to effect the market of kindle, not sure but seems like it. Also depends on how far consumers consider the iPad and Kindle to be two completely different devices with different uses?

As i looked at the video Apple ipad looks good with its graphical displays and features too.
The e-commerce giant Amazon has announced another strong quarter results on thursady.Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos said in a statement:

Millions of people now own Kindles. And Kindle owners read, a lot. When we have both editions, we sell 6 Kindle books for every 10 physical books. This is year-to-date and includes only paid books — free Kindle books would make the number even higher. It’s been an exciting 27 months.

Amazon says, We think we are focused on the customer, and I think when you look at Kindle, that’s a — certainly a good example of that. We think we built a nice — very nice purpose book — purpose device, and that’s — excuse me, that’s purpose built for reading. And we believe that readers deserve to have a dedicated device with great selection at great prices.

When looked at the Amazon’s annual report that notes $508 million of deferred revenue will be recognized over 2010 and 2011. If you assume, most of that deferred revenue is related to the Kindle—something analysts were trying to figure out on the conference call—you come up with some kind of guesstimate. In any case, the Kindle is nothing in the grand scheme of $24.5 billion in annual revenue Amazon brings in.

That's all the story of Amazon , CFO of Amazon said "Kindle is meant for a purpose, they are more user oriented, Kindle replaces a book and it is more of reading" but Stevejobs has come up with some thing different. Main purpose of ipad is to read but also comes with many other features like Gaming, music, video . I think it's gonna hit Kindle sales definitely.

Buying Kindle or an Ipad?

When we are talking about ipad vs kindle. Kindle is 6inch screen lighter screen and ipad is 10 inch screen. Even though Ipad has got many other features like Gaming,video,audio but it still doesnt replace the ipods neither it replaces the phone all we need to do it carry another gadget in the bag. Though iPad’s $499 seems comparable to Kindle DX’s $489, Kindle bundles unlimited 3G access in its price. An equivalent functionality on iPad requires users to pay an additional $120 for a 3G modem and $30/month subscription for unlimited 3G access– a price point that may not be compelling to users who want a dedicated, simple reading device.

But at the end of the day it takes some tinme to analyse this device and compare its grip over the market with Kindle. How ever i think Apple should have come up with a more innovative product which is user oriented and not try to do the same and compete with others in the market.


9-year-old Kid as an IT administrator

Wednesday, January 27, 2010

How old we were when we heard about some thing called computers, and have anyone thought about computers at the age of 6 and start studying them? Hardly imaginable to do that rite, but Macedonia's Marko Calasan got his first professional credential at age 6, when he passed the Microsoft Certified Systems Administrator exam. Now 9, he just went for the follow-on systems engineer certification. Sounds cool rite, at the age of 6 i hardly thought about my schools books forget about some things like Microsoft certifications which most of our Software engineers do at present.

I started using computers at the age of 14 i guess when i was in 9th standard and just use to do some paint brush and play some DOS games. And most of the kids do the same , but Marko already has his first computer administrating gig.

Marko manages a network of PCs at a nonprofit that works with people with disabilities. Most of the work, Marko said, can be done remotely, though he has to go in person to handle hardware issues.

Guys Microsoft should be happy that there is little bomb who is Fan of Microsoft at the age of 6 , imagine what he could be when turns aroung 20. Recently there was a survey by a magazine for "From which part of the world would be next Bill Gates ", Surver reveiled it could be probably in India or China, but now it seems like it can also be from USA by looking at Marko.

Befitting his interests, Marko had the Windows 7 logo on his most recent birthday cake when he turned nine last July.

What makes Marko interesting is , he also trains people from remote machines about adminstration. This is marvelous thing to belive.When he is not in school, or remotely managing IT for a nonprofit, Marko teaches computer skills to other children at a lab donated by Macedonia's Ministry of Education.

Recently Marko was also part of a seminar where he was talking about Active Directory.Here, Marko is speaking to a crowd at Microsoft's Slovenian offices.

Guys look at the future now, the kids are too fast to get used to computers no only get used they also look at the technical aspects and Microsoft will get an good asset in the future in the form Marko who is showing his interest in Microsoft at the age of 6. Unbelievable but true.


Google Chromes Voice Extension

Tuesday, January 26, 2010

Google Chrome has got its new updates last fridat and that is , it got an voice extension added to it which facilitates the users directly call numbers from the browsers just by a click. If you love Google or hate retyping phone numbers, this one's for you.

The extension basically just turns phone numbers into clickable links, eliminating the need to cut and paste them across windows. It also adds a phone icon to Chrome, letting you quickly place calls and choose the number from which you do so. While it's a nice step toward a lazier future, there are some caveats. Mac users, for example, will need to install the latest Chromium build, not just the regular old Chrome, to gain the functionality.
