What I don’t like about HTC Desire Z

By , August 17, 2011 4:15 pm

htc desire z slide slider

  • The Z slider is tough to handle especially when one is in a hurry
  • The keyboard is too wide one can’t text with one hand
  • The phone is 12% heavier than a Blackberry Torch 9800

Overall, far from a phone for the texter.

Living in the Stream

By , August 10, 2011 12:59 am
The good news is The bad news is
You only need to concentrate your efforts to creating contents. Leave the viral job to consumers You have to publish really good stuffs to be pinned long enough in the stream
You become famous fast You are forgotten fast
You have great opportunities Others have their great opportunities
News! News!! News!!! News! News!! News!!!
The past is history Lessons are well buried under history
There are many options Focus is totally lost
Everybody can drink from the stream Anybody can bath in the stream
Plagiarism is open to public You always have to be the first
What flies by flew by “It’s crazy I can’t find the thing I had cast into the stream!”
Less is more More of less important key points
Complexity is hidden You miss out the production process, which is usually the fun
