“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”
“Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything — all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure — these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.”
I have been using the iPhone 4 since it’s launch, absolutely a piece of marvel, hands down the best phone. Since then I have also used a Samsung Galaxy S and a HTC Desire HD. I also have a Blackberry Bold 9780. I keep coming back to my Blackberry.
Blackberry has almost lost the smartphone race to Apple and Google now but still I love it for what it is, it’s a great phone, yes It’s the best device to make and receive voice calls and text (I don’t use their email service). The level of notification customizations, the physical qwerty keyboard, the amazing battery life and little things like the LED notification light make it simply the best at making calls and texting. For me these are the foremost, I don’t want to miss an important call or a text. Of course for most people it’s a no-brainer to get an iPhone instead of a Blackberry. I carry my iPhone along all the time for the wonderful media device that it is. On a side note the HTC Desire HD has a ridiculous speaker, can’t hear a thing when it rings. But for Blackberry to have a chance at smartphone market again, RIM should get the QNX based OS that they have developed for the Playbook out for Blackberry phones soon.
The Motorola Xoom is out, the Blackberry Playbook is just around the corner with a late April launch date. Am excited about the Playbook as a device though am sceptical about how the platform will hold in the long run. Am skiping the Xoom as my first Android tablet for a more polished harware like the Samsung Tab 8.9 and 10.1, the prototypes look promising. Last but not by any means the least - HP WebOS has me really thrilled. They must get the HP TouchPad out as soon as possible. WebOS has always appealed to a lot of geeks, it’s UI feels almost as polished and consistant as that of iOS, WebOS 3.0 even more so, judging from the demos. Well Apple has a firm hold on the tablet market with a super solid tablet, it will be atleast 2012 before the iPad sees any serious momentum build up in any of these rival camps. All in all the coming months are going to be very interesting indeed.
