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.
Did you see what I did there? “Neatness-challenged”! How much more politically correct can you be?
Let’s call a spade a spade, and say that there are people who might be awesome but are slobs at home – plain and simple. Now I am not a neatness freak, but I do like the floor clean and free of pieces of paper, plastic wrappers, or whatever little bit of trash.
Of course, having a good aim might be somehow related to the neatness of your room. Paper Toss might have improved some people’s skills in this regard, but wouldn’t it be handy to have a trash bin that knows exactly where your
trash projectile is going to land?
