Facing problem managing your time?

I guess it’s not just with me.

Time management is something of not everyone’s cup of tea. There are often times when you get real busy and it’s not easy to stay focused into the subject  and be productive in what you need to be doing in the manner you should be doing.

Recently, I was just going thru YouTube and found some wonderful presentations on Time Management. I was impressed with the way the authors of the presentations have put time management strategies in there. With that, I gotta feeling may be I will better be able to manage my time in the days to come. Below are the slides that I hope it would be worth sharing: 🙂image

 

The Future of the Internet in 2020

 

This is an interesting survey which I feel to share wid you all.

Here are the key findings:

  • The mobile device will be the primary connection tool to the internet for most people in the world in 2020.
  • The transparency of people and organizations will increase, but that will not necessarily yield more personal integrity, social tolerance, or forgiveness.
  • Voice recognition and touch user-interfaces with the internet will be more prevalent and accepted by 2020.
  • Those working to enforce intellectual property law and copyright protection will remain in a continuing “arms race,” with the “crackers” who will find ways to copy and share content without payment.
  • The divisions between personal time and work time and between physical and virtual reality will be further erased for everyone who is connected, and the results will be mixed in their impact on basic social relations.
  • “Next-generation” engineering of the network to improve the current internet architecture is more likely than an effort to rebuild the architecture from scratch.

It seems there will nt be much difference left between a human being and a machine as well..

 

‘Bing’ Search Engine Challenges ‘Google’

Bing is Microsoft’s answer to all competitive search engines including Google and Yahoo. But, as far as I understand, Microsoft is preferably calling its new search engine ‘Bing’, a “decision engine,” aiming to bring a change in user perception and make the search engine stand out from the crowd. Bing went live  on May 28, 2009, but the actual decision engine started to bing from yesterday onwards!

Since this release of Bing.com is a beta, not all of the features are available yet but it’s possible to get a pretty good understanding of what sets it apart from Google and Yahoo search engines. I loved one of the Bing features most that, if you move your mouse cursor into the right side of the individual search result, then you will find a copy of the text found on the website listed. Yes, Bing does it, but sorry, Google doesn’t. check it out yourself!
