告一段落

Win8 RP和WP7的体验基本告一段落。从趋势看, 前途无量。从目前看,应用较少,且不成熟的多,再玩下去也不会有结果。所以告 一段落,等待市场成熟些再说。 Win8要在触屏的电脑上才有意思,否则还是与win7一样,回到文件浏览器里工作。 那么瓷砖或者Metro就没什么意思,也显不 出Win8的优越性。这要等一年、两年才能看出效果。 而WP7相对成熟些,但是比起爱疯和安卓,软件还是少很多。基于这种情况,还是看看再说。不要一激动又去 买。

中移动在深圳高调演示4G网络,给人的感觉十分成功。可是,看完了演示,回到现实中。请问移动终端设备何时投入市场?让人们可以真正用上,而不是精神会餐。TD-WCDMA主要是因为移动终端选择太少,所以无法推广。而联通则占了WCDMA是国际上最常用的制式的便宜,所以大量的水货加上苹果、HTC、三星、moto等都可以不加修改地把国外产品直接用到国内,从而使得联通大发横财。而电信因为是CDMA2000,只有部分国外的电信企业采用,而且都是无卡的。所以水货进入中国大陆,首先要烧号,十分麻烦。因此,造成电信的3G用户比联通的少很多。而移动因为是国产格式,所以3G用户最少。不过从网上的帖子来看,很多是心理因素,而不是TD-WCDMA技术上的有什么问题。而国外名牌设备支持TD-WCDMA的不多,也造成追星一族无法光顾中移动。不过,别忘了,在GSM领域,中移动还是老大。论其服务和覆盖,还是最稳定和可靠的。因此也造成了很多3G手机,如iPhone4S等,用户宁可不用其3G功能,而仍然使用移动的GSM功能。这也说明,中国的手机用户主要追求的不是3G,而是电话。至于上网么,3G手机都可以通过Wi-Fi来上网,比3G上网省电。你看,实际情况就是这样。3G这样,4G又如何?

目前中国的4G只有中移动格式,当然这个国产格式也在国际上得到比较广泛的采用,所以有希望打个翻身仗。不过说归说,至今还没有见到移动产品,所以仍然都是空心汤团。

推荐一篇文章-The Perils of Site Fatigue

The Perils of Site Fatigue

Bolaji Ojo, Editor in Chief
5/15/2012
Don’t ask me to follow or Like your company on social media if it won’t add value to my day. I am struggling already with site fatigue, and I can’t add another unwarranted detour to my already tedious trip on the information superhighway.

I’ll define “site fatigue” for those who may not have heard the term before. (You’ve probably experienced it.) But let me first explain how it can be contracted and who is behind it.

Each week, I visit hundreds of corporate, government, and individual Websites. I read news, dig up press releases, search for information, digest financial analysis, and even indulge in a few minutes of entertainment on sites like YouTube and Yahoo. To top it off, I receive a deluge of requests to Like companies on Facebook, follow tweets on Twitter, or be LinkedIn with others. Then there’s Foursquare, Google+, Habbo, MyLife (formerly Reunion.com), MySpace, Plaxo, Renren, StumbleUpon, and XING. (Click here for a more complete list of social networking Websites.)

Stop. My brain is clogged. Like many other professionals who have to wade through this thicket of invitations in addition to other sites, I am typically dizzy by the end of each day, and I am happy to get away from my computer, smartphone, or tablet. I didn’t know what to call the ailment until a colleague, Barbara Jorgensen, explained during a meeting that many of the people in the electronics purchasing community are suffering from site fatigue and would welcome only those additional offerings that help them sort through the clutter. They need functional sites that narrow the digital landscape they must survey. In other words, less is more.

They are tired of digging up pricing information for certain components on countless sites and then lumbering to another set of sites for news and data on market conditions, suppliers’ financial health, product availability, economic forecasts, etc. They visit supplier sites for technical information, the Securities and Exchange Commission site for regulatory filings, parts distributor sites for end-of-life and lead time information, and manufacturer home pages to glean whatever they can about product roadmaps, other strategic initiatives, and management changes that can impact their operations. Then, as if this journey through the Internet wilderness weren’t mind numbing enough, they get requests from some of these same companies to “visit us on Facebook.”

Are you kidding me? Some of these requests simply don’t make sense. They eat up time I could be using more productively. I wonder if these companies realize how they are contributing to the mindless chatter that’s clogging up our inboxes. Please don’t ask me to Like your company on Facebook if there’s no particular hook or reason for me to do so. Don’t ask me to follow your tweets if they aren’t worth following. Don’t ask me to tag or recommend you if I can’t justify the investment of my time.

In case that wasn’t clear enough, let me get some more off my chest: I am tired of being asked to like companies I don’t care to like, to follow firms with no compelling stories, to link with businesses that haven’t convinced me we have anything in common, and to “pin” products or individuals with whom I share no interests.

And I am not alone. Site fatigue is becoming an endemic disease among workers worldwide. We like social media, but it must be properly used. Right now, that doesn’t appear to be the case at many companies. If your company has a Website that I can reference, what exactly do you want me to do on your Facebook page? Are you sending me to this site simply because everybody else is there, or do you have something there that would make it easier for me to get the information I need?

OK, I know this may sound like the ranting of an overworked editor, but answering these questions can help businesses make better and more productive use of resources and avoid alienating suppliers, customers, and end users. The indiscriminate use of social media is driving a large portion of your audience crazy, and some are simply ignoring your requests because you haven’t given them any justifiable reason to respond.

As I was writing this blog, I decided to conduct a simple test. I had never seen a “Like us on Facebook” request from Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL), and I was wondering if the company even has a Facebook page. I checked. There’s no http://www.facebook.com/apple page. What about the competition? All of Apple’s rivals have dedicated Facebook pages, including BlackBerry, Dell, Ericsson, HP, HTC, Lenovo, Nokia, and Samsung. Component suppliers are on Facebook, too, including AMD, Freescale, Intel, and Qualcomm.

The typical message on these pages resembles this one from Ericsson’s page: “Ericsson is on Facebook. To connect with Ericsson, sign up for Facebook today.” Why, I asked myself. Does Ericsson know something Apple doesn’t? Has it leveraged Facebook in ways the folks over at Apple just don’t get? Why would I want to connect with Ericsson on Facebook? Do I really need that intermediary between us? What exactly does Facebook offer me about Ericsson that the company doesn’t offer now on its Website?

And why should I worsen my site fatigue by adding all these social media sites separately for the dozens of companies I follow?

I am not a social media Grinch. I will follow your company if you can justify the investment of my time.

有趣的画

给我一堵墙,我就可以解放了。

给我一堵墙,我就可以解放了。

 

 

我在网上看到一张照片,拍的是一幅街画。街画是我想出来的,因为我觉得这不是涂鸦。这幅画是画在巴黎街头的一堵墙上,颜色搭配和人物表情描绘十分精细。
而画上面有一句话:给我一堵墙,我就可以解放了。墙是把人封锁住的,往往是把人逼得走投无路。可是街画的作者,只有在墙上才有发挥自己才华的天地,才有了自己的自由之路。辩证的哲学。

麦库笔记

麦库笔记的新动向:

以前麦库笔记出什么也做不了,可是最近可以导入Evernote,这可有点新意。好像有道笔记还不行。另外几种移动设备也都有了客户端,可以试试。是不是想说的那样像一朵花,可使用起来却像烂菜花。不过上面这个插件不知道是什么意思,明明有两个笔记在默认分类里面,可是没有显示出来。另外,目前无法变更默认分类,这不大方便。

iOS5

昨天终于将iPhone4升级到5了。今天就与北京进行了imessage的视频通话。效果非常好,画面清晰,声音无延迟。看起来我的爱哌也得升级了。越狱的事再说了。
