September 10th has been officially announced as Apple’s next big seminar event, with sites like The Verge proudly flaunting their invites online. Naturally, rumors abound about what new product Apple will unveil—with some being more plausible than others. With competitors like Samsung moving into the smartphone and tablet arena, a space Apple founded, some Apple supporters are calling for Apple’s next big innovation. iWatch anyone? However, if Apple’s leaders are smart, which they are, they will realize that their success has never been driven by their competitors, but by Apple’s own brand and inventiveness.
Since the launch of the first Macintosh in 1984, Apple Inc. has made a name for itself as one of the main think tanks for new and cutting edge technology. Despite a slump in the ‘90s, the company has also grown into one of the biggest companies in the world, maintaining its position through constant innovations and new technologies.
Finding a job is not always that easy. I know some people who never seem to have a hard time finding a job, but there are some who may take forever. It’s not all about skills and experience all the time, though. Some of those I know who belong to the first group may not have the best credentials, while some who belong to the second group may be some of the most qualified people I know.
I guess it’s all about timing – and pieces falling into place.
As we face the second half of the year, and you are looking at finding a job – whether for the first or the nth time – AND you’re looking at the tech sector, here’s a nifty list of the best technology jobs in 2013. Of course, best might be relative, but you get the gist.
There’s no doubt about it – the human race will forever have a fixation on anything superhero-related. Superheroes may take on different faces and have different powers depending on the culture and era, but the concepts remain the same. I suppose that it’s one of the not-so-basic human needs: to have these mythical creatures to look up to. Whether it’s escapism or idealism at work, I don’t really know.
But did you know that ideas from superhero stories have found their way to real life? I’m not talking about Kick Ass (although that’s still not real life, I know), but I just saw this infographic from Visually which showcases real-life technology based on superhero stories, and I think you’ll appreciate it too.
Ahh, multitasking. One word (albeit a compound one) that can generate a wide variety of emotions. I know a good number of people who will celebrate the fact that they are able to multitask. Effectively, mind you.
In fact, I used to be one of them. I was rather fond of saying that I could do several tasks at the same time and not have my work suffer because of it. Some years down the road, however, I realize that I might have been wrong in my thinking.
Maybe it’s because of having gained some years. Or maybe I was just too caught up in the idea that multitasking is effective. The fact remains that today, I cannot say with all certainty that multitasking is the way to go.
And you know what? I am not alone in this. It’s not the first time I have read about multitasking not being good for the brain, but here’s another piece that might get you thinking as well: The Perils of Multitasking.
