Why Grilled Cheese Is The Next Frontier Of Technology

leave a comment »

A lot of eyebrows were raised when Jonathan Kaplan, the founder of camera company Flip which was acquired (and shut down) by Cisco, announced that his next venture would be a chain of grilled cheese restaurants called The Melt. And that Sequoia Capital, the top technology VC firm, invested in the company.

Why are technology entrepreneurs and investors doing a grilled-cheese company?

Now Forbes has an interview and video where Kaplan explains what he’s up to:

Steve Jobs Insult Response

leave a comment »

Remember when Jobs returned to Apple? It was 1997, after the failure of the NeXT, and it was not assumed he could affect real change. Even Woz admits he wasn’t sure Jobs could fix Apple. In this video Jobs is called out in front of a live audience by a guy who questions Jobs technical understanding and tells Jobs that he doesn’t know “what he’s talking about.” Pretty interesting to watch Steve’s response.

Ingenius Advertising From Mcdonalds

leave a comment »

 

Standing out when advertising on cabs is pretty tricky but Mcdonald’s have come up with a simple concept in Chicago that you couldn’t help but notice. Chicago is of course known as the windy city for the howling wind that passes through it’s streets and this concept taps right in to that to promote Mcdonald’s fries. I don’t want to ruin the video before you actually see it but we think you will agree that this is some seriously creative work.

Naysayers: Believe or Listen to them at your ‘Peril’

leave a comment »

You can’t do it, it has been done before, It won’t work, Why don’t you get yourself a job like everybody else, Why keep wasting your time………..the lists and sayings goes on and on!

 

However the question remains, do you listen to them, do you believe them and do you absorb them? Because if you do, then you’re doomed to FAIL.

 

Often people do forget we human beings are created as individuals not in groups that must have the same social, financial, moral or political inclination to our peers, friends or families.

 

As an individual, differentiating yourself from groups that are prevalent towards the same thoughts, ideas, mentality etc, is not easy.  However once you have decided to embark on that long, lonely road of being different and not conforming to the ‘normality’ that the masses expect of you, then you start seeing the difference.

 

You start finding out who the real you ‘is’, what type of life you want to lead and what difference you want to make to yourself and the people that surrounds you.

 

As I have reiterated time and time again, it won’t be easy at first but taking that first step onto that path is an achievement itself.  As human beings, I believe we are all good people but even people who care the most about us often do not know who we really are or what we really want.

 

It is up to you, to find out what you really want and go for it. Do not listen to the ‘NAYSAYERS’, for they are a waste of your time. Let it begin!
