A Big-Picture Look at Google, Microsoft, Apple And Yahoo

I have copied this across from the NY Times website, as it’s a fantastic chart to show how the biggies interact and compete or not. I’m not going to copy and paste the article, so go and have a read of it here. Makes for some fascinating and thought-provoking reading.

quick update: the best “rick roll” video yet

I have to say this is very well done – it’s a God roll…..enjoy!!

beautiful quote

I don’t have a reference for this sorry, but I’m not claiming it as mine:

Imagine there is a bank account that credits your account each morning with $86,400. It carries over no balance from day to day.
Every evening the bank deletes whatever part of the balance you failed to use during the day. What would you do? Draw out every cent, of course?
Each of us has such a bank. It’s name is TIME.
Every morning, it credits you with 86,400 seconds.
Every night it writes off as lost, whatever of this you have failed to invest to a good purpose.
It carries over no balance. It allows no over draft. Each day it opens a new account for you. Each night it burns the remains of the day.
If you fail to use the day’s deposits, the loss is yours. There is no drawing against “tomorrow.”
You must live in the present on today’s deposits. Invest it so as to get from it the utmost in health, happiness and success!
The clock is running!! Make the most of today.

quick update: sqwi.sh API is just about go-time

Just to say that the sqwi.sh API is built, and I’m just doing final testing over the next few days to make sure it is robust before launch.

More updates to come….
