Gangster Sean John Suit

April 13, 2009

This week, SuitUpp is back to Sean John. I can’t help but look at this and think that this is something that a mobster would wear… but, that’s just me.

Natasha’s Cool New Social Media Company

I bumped into Natasha D’Souza the other day and she told me about her new Social Media Company. Natasha’s a social media wiz and if you’re looking to make your presence known on the internet, you should absolutely consult with her. You can check out VirtualEyeSee (the company) here: http://www.virtualeyesee.com.

Keeping my New Year’s Resolutions

January 12, 2009

A bit late in writing this… but, might as well put it up. I made sure to set 3 different goals for this year (each with measurable benchmarks). The goals are all-encompassing enough that I can relate almost any activity that I partake in daily to one of them.

The idea is that whenever I look at the time (watch, clock, cellphone, tv, computer), I’ll have to remember to ask myself “is what I’m doing right now the most efficient way of spending my time in accomplishing one of those 3 different goals”. Answering this question over and over again daily should “theoretically” help me keep the resolutions. Let’s see how it plays out. 🙂

How to Sell Software

October 26, 2008

Selling software is a very interesting process. It so happens that its really not just about telling interested parties about all of the features that you have and how using the software can make life so great. Yes, this is part of the process too. But, the reality is that all this will do is get people interested in your product. There are so many other factors that come to play in selling and it would be difficult to talk about them all.

However, I will say that not only is it very important to tell potential customers how using your software will make their life better, but you also have to let them know how disappointing and difficult their life will be if they don’t buy your products. Most people will do more to avoid the negatives resulting from not buying than they will do to gain the positives from buying.

My Firsthand Experience with the BlackBerry Storm

October 22, 2008

I have a lot of meetings in Coffee Shops. Yesterday, as I was chatting away at a meeting, I noticed a really fancy phone in the hands of a guy who seemed to be intensely coding away. He was a RIM developer. Of course, I had to ask him to let me play with the phone he was programming (which of course was the good old BlackBerry Storm – i.e. first ever touch-screen BlackBerry).

I won’t repeat all of the information that you’ll be able to find on the internet, but, here are some new things that I learned about the phone:

1) It has copy and paste.

2) It doesn’t have wifi!! 😦

3) The touch screen is actually tactile. In other words you have to press down the screen for a button to be pushed (unlike the iphone that simply detects touch).

4) When the phone is held in the vertical direction, it doesn’t show the full keyboard. When the phone is shown sideways, then you can see the full keyboard. That’s smart 🙂

5) The browser is not nearly good as the iphone’s. However, it’s better than that of my BlackBerry 8830. In order to zoom in, you’ll have to double tap the screen rather than using the two-finger zooming procedure in the iphone.

6) Its a world phone (like the 8830).

It seems like a great phone and I’m really hoping to get my hands on one as soon as I can (I’ll write more when I actually can use one for daily use).

Sean John – Pin Stripe Suit

June 30, 2008

sean john charcoal pin stripe suit

New weekly suit is up on SuitUpp.com. This week its a Sean John Charcoal Pin Stripe suit. The list price on the website is $495. However, just type in the code “giveme200” (without the quotes) on the checkout page as the discount code to get $200 off the purchase price. At $295, this suit is a steal… We have very limited quantity of this one available. First come first served 🙂
