Fooled by Elon Musk

By , April 10, 2016 10:07 pm

Làm bạn hàng với Elon Musk mới bị vừa đập vừa bị cướp công vừa bị lừa tiền. Còn làm độc giả đọc sách PR thì ăn bánh vẽ sướng quá còn gì. Yêu cầu cao với người trái đất vậy :-j

Mỗi năm Elon Musk [NASDAQ:TSLA] bị chửi thì cho ăn một đến hai lần.

Mỗi năm Tim Cook [NASDAQ:AAPL] cho ăn một lần quá lộ vào tháng 8.

Jeff Bezos [NASDAQ:AMZN] thì hứa được hứa hoài.

NASDAQ là cái sòng dễ ăn nhất cho Cái Bang toàn cầu rồi. Chảnh ngồi đọc sách chửi đổng nhau không thèm ăn nữa thì chịu.

Câu hỏi đặt ra là Larry Page [NASDAQ:GOOGL] đi đâu mà để Jeff Bezos một mình đấu với Elon Musk trên mặt trận truyền thông building Castles in the Void vậy?

POP3 on Yahoo! Mail and my Outlook

By , July 29, 2013 3:33 pm

When my Outlook pst file exceeded 20Gb, funny things occurred to my Outlook 2010. Read on some tech forums that Outlook doesn’t handle large pst file, and when the pst file reaches that size, it can’t be compacted.

I’ve been using Yahoo! Mail for registering to online services (because the mailbox size is unlimited so it can withstand spams). The massive amount of emails to my Y!Mail caused the pst file to gorge.

Gmail allows good controls of POP3. Outlook mail (the new hotmail) more obscure. Y!Mail POP3 is very limited e.g. no option to "download arriving emails only". Therefore, ALL emails to Y!Mail are downloaded on every single device when I connect Y!Mail account to an email client.

I am deleting the Y!Mail account from my Outlook and switching back to the web interface.

The real competitors of Foursquare

By , December 21, 2011 1:28 pm

As a small(er) merchant, I am tempted to ask Foursquare:

Why do I have to run a campaign on Foursquare when other marketing channels are available to me?

  1. Search
  2. Context ads
  3. Facebook ads
  4. Groupon
  5. Contests on Facebook page & Twitter

On product level, Foursquare’s competitors include Facebook Places and Gowalla, which was acquired by Facebook.

On monetization level, Foursquare’s competitors are all marketing service providers available to SMEs. When Foursquare wants to scale, it’s going head-on with, gasp, Google, Facebook and Groupon.

Baidu enters Vietnam

By , September 17, 2011 3:43 am

CafeF1 reports Baidu has launched 2 sites in Vietnamese language:

The portal vn.hao123.com and Q&A service zhidao.baidu.com.vn

This is part of the localization of Baidu’s existing services to other international markets. Baidu also recruits PM in Vietnam.

I like the portal.

  • It’s neat
  • It lists the sites that I benefit from knowing
  • Lots of white spaces, few images
  • Large and pleasant font (Tahoma?). BTW I hate Times & Arial
  • In terms of information, I prefer it to vn.yahoo.com and alltop.com (sorry Guy)
  • In terms of customization it is nowhere near netvibes.com and iGoogle.com though
  • The concern is if I use VNI Vietnamese typing method, the URL messes up

So in short, nice attempt.

The Q&A service will have to compete with Yahoo! Answers. Also, savy.vn is preparing to launch.

The challenge Baidu has in Vietnam is probably public relations.
