Why Steve Ballmer Misses The Point Completely With Android

Steve Ballmer, chief of Microsoft, speaking at Telstra annual investment day said "I don't really understand their strategy. Maybe somebody else does. If I went to my shareholder meeting, my analyst meeting and said, hey, we've just launched a new product that has no revenue model!"

Sometimes its hard to believe this guy heads the largest technology corporation in the world. Its almost unfair that microsoft has to compete against the smarts of Larry page and Sergey Brin. A decade of seeing open source screwing up microsoft server business, he still needs to ask why they are doing it.

Ok Steve i know the answer and here it is. Its time microsoft gets screwed. Google wants to do that. Since they dont want you to control the third screen(mobile) and releasing a open source OS for which manufacturers do not have to pay for licenses its just the fastest way to do it.

So in short, they want to do to your mobile business what Linix did to your server business.

Clear? I think its time we switch jobs, o heck no, you will screw up my company and ask stupid questions in public conferences.

To Microsoft share holders, sell man sell.Fast.


Obama win is once in a century event and here is why

So Obama won the elections. kenyans are as happy as americans. Everyone is hailing Americans for being wise and choosing the better candidate but here is how rare this win really is.

1. US economy had to be in shit for people to look beyond skin color.

2. The outgoing administration had to be in government for 2 straight terms and anti incombancy factor as high as it can be.

3. The outgoing president had to have a miserable public image.

4. US as a nation had to be disliked by people of a lot of nations.

5. The country had to be in the worst recession in over a century.

6. The presidential hopeful had to have a white mom even when he is black to make people look beyond skin and attract voters outside of his community.

7. The presidential hopeful had to have follwoed christianity all his life even when his father was a muslim.

8. The other presidential hopeful(mccain) had to be old enough for people to fear that he might not be able to complete his term in office.

9. The other presidential hopeful(mccain) had to make the error of choosing a extremely unworthy vice president(palin) making people doubt his own judgement

10. The entire business community, scientific community had to lobby for the presidential hopeful to make people trust him eough.

11. The presidential hopeful had to choose his most vocal critic as his vice president.

12. The presidential hopeful had to get loyalities from his own strongest competitor and her followers(hilary)

13. The presidential hopeful had to be one of the best orators politics has seen for quite some time.

14. The presidential hopeful had to convince people he has always been a christian and not a muslim.

15. Take personal allegations of his links with terrorists.

16. Make people from his oppositions side publicly support him(powel).

These factors and many other factors coming together are reasons why Obama even though he is a black in a white peoples country could make it to thr white house.

And this is as rare as it gets. Good for you america.

George did you congratulate Obama by the way? No?


Why Tata Nen HottestStartups Contest Is A Complete HogWash

In case you are not familiar with this contest, its a contest for Indian startups where the winners will be selected by popular voting and ratings by expert panel.

Now here is why this event is a complete hogwash. 

1. The best startups might not be able to get popular voting at all. For example a nano technology company with a product focussed on government organization. It makes sense for consumer websites to get more, and probably thats what its intended for. The only issue is that they have not mentioned this anywhere.

2. The votes can easily be rigged. Infact i am sure most of the top 100 startups have in some way manipulated voting. The top company has got 10,000 votes. Seems unrealistic.

3. The voting charges are 3 rs. per sms like those reality shows. 

4. Some of the top 200 startups in the contest are nonsense. They have no business model, no profits, no future.

5. The experts are no good to give any one ratings. Most of the experts have not proved themselves that they can sense a good business opportunity. The expert panel is not impressive. I saw some experts give exceptional comments to a blog. I mean nothing against blogs, i just dont consider a blog a startups.

6. Some of the best companies i could find are in the bottom 100.

7. Their website is so pathetically slow, its virtually impossible to vote online. If this guys were serious they would do something about this. You will not even get confirmation emails when you register. If you do register you will not be able to login.

8. They didnt expect people would rig votes. They mention on their website that they didnt expect people to manipulate votes. These are the people who are supposed to judge business opportunities. By the time they realised votes have been rigged its already too late.

9.  Popular voting is given 50% weightage. Now that will make sure the best startups don't get nominated in the top 30.
