BlackBerry 7130e

Hi team

I found a very kewl review of the BlackBerry 7130e on the Laptop Magazine website.

It was written by Tim Kridel and posted on March 20th 2006.

BlackBerry remains the brand tobeat for wireless e-mail, but one of RIM's weaknesses in the past year has been the lack of a model running EV-DO. That's finally changed with the 7130e from Verizon Wireless. For RIM, it doesn't come a moment too soon; with the EV-DO-powered Treo 700w on the market and Motorola Q waiting in the wings, the competition keeps getting tougher.

It's Worth the Time!

Hay Team

If you havn't heard of Rich Schefren than you have just not been on the net lately.

I like his style. His byline on his blog is "More Money, More Business, More Time Off."

Now that sounds like a good thing right? Well when I asked some friends the other night if they had watched his video. They replied we don't have the time to spend watching a 90 minute video.

Well may I suggest that Rich's principals are textbook and they draw on the power of todays technology to produce the desired result.

Or in other words this is a GOOD THING and WORTH THE TIME!

So I am giving you a link to Richs' Blog so that you will have all of his little gems all in one place.

If you want to sign up for his training program that is entirely up to you. You would be in some very highly estemed internet guru company like Jim Edwards, IF you could get in that is.

Rich has been giving out lots of free nuggets in his Manifesto, the Missing Chapter, his 90 minute video and his 60 minute conference call recording.

The best part is that it is ALL available from his blog AND you can join his list of subscribers from the blog as well. Oh yes also read the many comments to Richs' posts by his readers, they are also WORTH THE TIME!

If you like it or not I would love to get your thoughts. You can post your comments here.

Assisted Living goes High Tech

Hay Team

I just watched the MSNBC Nightly News for Monday the 24th of July 2006, I thought this segment was interesting and that you might like to watch it.

Assisted living goes high tech
July 24: NBC's Jennifer London takes a look at the latest in assisted living -- gadgets that allow boomers to keep an eye on their parents even though they're miles, and in some cases, time zones away.

Also the site asked me to complete a survey on the quality and speed of their videos. They also asked how important it was to be able to blog their videos.

As I hadn't tried this before and since they asked...Here goes

An Ego Thing?

Hay gang

Have you ever wondered what the stats on guy-gal usage is with these wonderful dare I say toys?

Well Victoria Ahearn of the Canadian Press published this interesting article today,

When it comes to high-tech gadgets, there's a definite gender gap.

A report last month from the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission suggested three per cent of Canadians used the BlackBerry e-mail device in 2005 — and 75 per cent of them were males.

Thanks Heather

The Faster I Go....The Behinder I Get...

Hay Gang

The feeling of being overwhelmed and behind in our to do list is all too common these days.

What to do?

I found this interesting article  by Cindy Krischer Goodman  that says it all.

You arrive at work and your voice mail light already is on, dozens of e-mails are waiting to be read, co-workers are dropping by to chat and you're still trying to return a call left over from yesterday.

That overwhelmed, overcommitted sentiment has created a booming time-management industry catering to millions of Americans who want to regain a sense of control in their lives.

Thanks Cindy for helping us get it together.

The Pike Story

Hay Gang

Change your Attitude and you change Everything.

Attitude is extremely important as Harold Taylor relates in his Pike story.

Some people think that their lives are completely controlled by external events. Those people will likely gain little, if anything, from attending time management seminars or reading books on the subject. Not because their lives are controlled by others, but because they think they are. Attitude is an important consideration when attempting to improve a person's time management skills.

Thanks Harold.

Is Blackberry the better option?

Hay team

I just came accross this great fresh article about what is happening with other smart phone makers.

Although RIM (Research In Motion) and NTP have kissed and made up over the patent infringement lawsuit that threatened to bring wireless email to a grinding halt on RIM’s entire BlackBerry network in the United States last year, organizations continue to purchase alternative smartphones from other vendors such as Palm, Samsung, Nokia, Motorola, and UTStarcom.

Read it all here.

Thanks Tech & Trends for keeping us up to date on the smart phone industry.

RIM's focus on growth

Research In Motion—free from the clutches of the NTP lawsuit—can now focus on growing its business, and it has its eye on the potentially lucrative small- and midsize-business market. Yet its hosted wireless e-mail service could be a tough sell: Businesses already have options, and some IT directors are concerned that they may lack control over the service.
