Quote Jeff Bezos

[blockquote cite=”Jeff Bezos”]Ich arbeite auch manchmal in unseren Vertriebscentern mit. Ich machte ein Managementtraining namens Kaizen. Wir hatten einen japanischen Berater, der meinte, er sei kein Berater, sondern ein Beleidiger. Er hat uns ständig angeschrien. Eines Tages war ich dabei, den Boden in einem Vertriebs-center zu fegen, da schrie er: ‚Herr Bezos. Ich finde einen sauberen Boden großartig, aber warum kehren Sie, statt die Quelle des Schmutzes zu bekämpfen?‘ Und er meinte, es sei meine Aufgabe, die Antwort zu finden[/blockquote]

Tip of the day: Mojiitto’s eargasm

I have discovered a great channel on Youtube called Mojiito’s eargasm describing itself as “soulful electronic wildstyle”. All electronic music lovers should give it a try. The videos are great. Some of them are official and some unofficial fan made.

You Guys Are Millionaires Right?

Then you see an app like ’101 sex positions’ or ’301 Fart Noises’ reach the lofty heights of App Store Success. They spent a week on a gimmick and made bank, you spent 6 months building an app of utility and are struggling. Let’s not even get into the long debates you get into with people about whether they should buy your $1.99 app. People will spend hours researching a $2 purchase, browsing reviews, emailing the developer, checking online forums. Then they will go to a coffee shop they’ve never been before and buy a $4 coffee. From the developer they expect unlimited support, unlimited free updates. From the coffee shop they expect nothing except mediocre coffee.

Some interesting insights and opinion from a small independent iPhone & ruby on rails developer. Link

Less updates…

You might have noticed that i’m posting less frequently in the last couple of days. Reason is quite simple. I’m back from vacation on a new project. This means simply that i have less time to update the blog.
