    Google is always pushing their technology solutions, via brand new product creations, company acquisitions, enhancements of existing products, and optimizing and scaling infrastructure.  While that’s true, it’s not without the classic Google Mistakes.  It’s nature. Nothing is perfect, but the new gmail enhancement – priority inbox is close to it.

    You should try it out. Get a new Google email account if you don’t already, and I think you’ll like it. Consider using it with other apps (like Google apps) for your domain, and you have a scalable repository for personal and business use. Use Gmail Firefox addons as well

    Look at the Google Priority Inbox video and manage your information overload:

    How To Create iPad Apps and Get Them To Sell Fast

    That Apple.com is an amazing company and its continuous success even more admirable, is the understatement of the decade. With the killer product marketing launches of one super hot product (iphone, ipod, ipad, mac) after another and surviving upheaval within the company and the economy, there is nothing stopping them (except lack of innovation).

    The number of applications available for iPhones, iPods, iPads in the iTunes Store is growing fast. To be part of the creation and development of useful apple applications is exciting, but frustrating if you don’t know where to start.

    If you are developing for the iPad – the iOS SDK 4 is a must-have. But, if you are a beginner, it gets confusing from there, and especially if you are not a programmer.

    How do you create applications for the iPad?

    Warning! The Examples of Rule of Thirds Not What You Think

    A Different View of The Rule of Thirds

    When it comes to the rule of thirds, many of us – and especially the experienced professional photographers – know what I’m speaking of.

    Taking good pictures with a digital camera can benefit from this way of thinking and positioning objects within the view finder. The human brain reacts favorably, looking at images or objects slightly “off”, versus placing objects dead center. (See the definition of Rule of Thirds here.)

    “The rule of thirds is applied by aligning a subject with the guide lines and their intersection points, placing the horizon on the top or bottom line, or allowing linear features in the image to flow from section to section. The main reason for observing the rule of thirds is to discourage placement of the subject at the center, or prevent a horizon from appearing to divide the picture in half”

    It is a great photo composition tip, and (always) used when newbies are taught on how to take a perfect portrait picture, for example.

    However, there is a ‘deeper’ rule than simply learning how to take pictures. We humans live in the rule of thirds every day, and you may not know it.

    Q: How does the silent, invisible, and engaging rule of thirds help me – in my life?
