Why Technology and why not ERP?

A lot of times, I get questions on my interest and some are often puzzled as to my interest towards technology, especially mobile technology rather than what I practice in real life -- ERP.
The questions generally are, -- "Why don't you write about ERP"?
"What's the benefit of writing a blog about tech news when you can write about ERP and be more marketable" ?
Sometimes, I don't get questions -- "I just get looks" pretty much summing up how they feel about it.
Some have even suggested to bring down the blogger site and just start writing about ERP and be on one of those open groups on linked in.

To be honest -- I really would like to write a lot about ERP - PeopleSoft and Oracle apps, but the fact of the matter is that I have spent my entire day working on those products and at times, I would like to know how things are shaping up outside my work world. I really like to help anyone with ERP question and those who do dedicatedly, "hats off to them". I am just washed out by the end of the day to think ERP when I leave office, unless there is work and that needs to be done to meet deadline.

So till then - I will continue to write outside ERP and when something excites me -- I'll write and discuss ERP.

1. Codeine and Kids - What can go wrong?

Deep down we all knew the side effects of the painkillers and cough syrup, now the FDA has come out slinging against Codeine and Tramadol. On one hand FDA has decided to come against the painkillers, but on the other hand, it did nothing to stop pharmaceuticals to sell OTC cough syrups and drugs that do contain those chemical elements.

2. Emirates - The problem begins

This was my fear when the current administration signed the executive order to ban tablets and laptops for three middle eastern airlines. How long before the other two airlines cut down the stops in US and concentrate more in Europe and the rest of the world? What it means for passengers? More expensive flights for world travelers. The tourism industry is already hit with anxiety and a lot of travelers are definitely avoiding the hassle to come to thi…

Email is the new Fax

Do you see this picture when you sign-in to your Gmail account? 

I see it every single time I sign-in to Gmail, no matter the speed of connection. At some point this started happening to my Gmail account a year or so back and every time I log-in, it gets bad. Gmail is my preferred account and I have around 10000 emails in my inbox, which is not a whole lot. I love to clean my inbox and organize it as much as possible. All the marketing, forums, registered mails are deleted rather than just sitting there. I had plenty of filters before, but when google introduced 6 tabs, I decided to go simpler and just use the default tabs. It is working well so far, but the lag and that picture still appears every single time.
But this post if not about Gmail or how slow it has become. It's about email and I can positively say that Gmail/email has become less important in my personal life. Last year Google introduced a nice little dashboard service to let you know your email activity for the week/m…

Apple and Google - Tale of 2 photos from Tim Cook

I was watching the Apple event from this morning. It was nicely done by Tim Cook. He definitely has it's own personality for sure.

There is a section in the video when Tim starts talking about iPad. There were two striking pictures that he presented to the whole world. I won't consider it a low blow, but it definitely showcased the real problem with Android tablets. 
1. Twitter app on Samsung +Android tablet and how the Twitter app looks on iPad 
2. Yelp app - Compared on how they looked on Samsung tablet and on iPad

There was also another reason of selecting Samsung tablet -- just to tell the world how they two look alike!

But besides the point - Tim laid out the biggest problem for Android and why +Google is loosing on Tablets. It's the Apps +Google+Android+Andy Rubin !!!!!

Just look at the apps, compare them and see why Android tablets are not selling like hot cakes even when they are cheap and the OS is free. If +Andy Rubin is in denial about two sets of apps, one for smart …
