Twitter: Well, after a bit of trepidation I’ve finally stepped into the “LARGE, loud and messy chat room” that is Twitter. For those who haven’t heard of Twitter. Here’s a brief intro:
A global community of friends and strangers answering one simple question: What are you doing? Answer on your phone, IM, or right here on the web!
What’s the fascination?
Twitter is addictive (thanks, Jeremiah!), owing to its unique blend of IM chat room meets persistent flash mobs. To me personally, once I have my friends on, it definitely is a great way to let them “read my thoughts”.
From a marketing perspective, looks like twitter could become a cool PR/News feed service (for e.g. BBC). It’s also a great way to get instant news on important earth-shattering items such as an earthquake, for example. But all this is based on the premise that you are addicted to RSS.
Here’s my twitter page and my twitter id is mariosundar.
Canon SD700 IS:
You may have read my not-so-recent post on my dilemma regarding purchase of a camera. I was then thinking of a digital SLR and received feedback from readers on a suitable camera. Nothing happened until now, I realize I needed a smaller, simpler point-and-shoot camera that’s easy to carry around for events, parties, etc…
I started with the Canon SD800 IS and the Sony DSC-T10, both of which were priced similar and had similar features. However, I ended up with the Canon SD700 IS since it has the features I am looking for, cost $50 lesser (than the 800) and looked better. Plus, my friend Jeremiah recently purchased it.
My Mac: Yes, finally after months of thought I decided to go ahead and purchase my first Mac – the MacBook.
There is no doubt that the Mac has slowly reached a tipping point when it comes to sales growth but personally my conversion was wrought due to my tech-crush on the Mac, which was fueled by the persistent-yet-subtle evangelism of high-profile users such as Om Malik and Guy Kawasaki.
Anyways, if you are contemplating a Mac purchase, add Amazon to your list of options. No tax and free 2-day shipping (w/ Amazon Prime). Nice.
Any recent Mac converts out there? Any thoughts/tips?
