Good work Microsoft- Origami

Filed under: Interesting — Rohit Aggarwal @ 4:06 pm

Mr. Robert Scoble of Microsoft briefs about Origami project at Microsoft. Sounds very interesting but seems something like OQO to me. But I can be wrong because haven’t gone through details of the product.

Mr. Scoble points to this article on Origami. 

I love Microsoft!

Stats about work related blogging

Filed under: Blogs,Stats — Rohit Aggarwal @ 9:02 pm

Mr. Dave Johnson of Sun points to a survey which says:

Of the employees polled who work for a company with a blogging policy:

  • 62% say the policy prohibits posting any employer-related information
  • 60% say the policy discourages employees from criticizing or making negative comments against the employer
  • 58% say the regulations deal with all blogging regardless of content.

Thanks to him, because these are very relevant stats for my research paper.

Power of blogging, free server from SUN

Filed under: Blogs — Rohit Aggarwal @ 6:24 pm

Mr. Jonathan Schwartz of Sun declared the free server offer to bloggers,

 We were also serious about the following: if you write a blog that fairly assesses the machine’s performance (positively or negatively), send us a pointer, we’re likely to let you keep the machine.

 Can somebody argue on the power of blogging?

Pointer to: Highly targeted AJAX advertising

Filed under: Interesting — Rohit Aggarwal @ 5:31 pm

Mr. Alex Barnett of Microsoft writes about the misplaced advertisement. In this he gives example of Ajax pharmaceutical product’s ad placed under tag of Web 2.0.

I have seen this so many times and completely agree with him when he says,

Context is everything.”

Still a happy user of a Tablet

Filed under: Interesting — Rohit Aggarwal @ 5:01 am


Now, when I have been using my new Tablet over a month, I am in a better position to comment on its performance.

I would say that I am extremely satisfied from my purchase.:-) Thanks to Gateway and Microsoft for making such a great product. It has completely changed my study habits. I use paper only when I have to submit my assignments.

When I was contemplating to purchase a tablet, my biggest concerns were the precision and ease.  I hardly feel any difference in writing over the tablet.

My only complain with my tablet is that its latch is not good and the screen will easily open even during lock mode.

Mr. Dave Johnson of Sun posted that North Carolina State University is getting on Roller. Hmmm. I wish if my Uni- University of Connecticut (UConn), also follows the precedent.
