Updates on Helpmonks, Razuna, and opinions and thoughts from the founders

main_safari20081217Since I got myself a new iPhone this week, I thought of posting my experience here, especially since I used to work with a Blackberry the last 2 years. But before I am going to post them here, this post over at the CNN Fortune site caught my eye:

iPhone now represents 51% of U.S. smartphone traffic — report!

Wow, that’s a very high number for a phone that has only been on the market for a short time. Especially, when you look at the competition that consists of Microsoft with their Windows Mobile (Version 6 is really not that bad), Blackberry (I love(d) my BlackBerry Curve) and Nokia (I had a couple of those).

In any case, it is no wonder that the iPhone passes the competition. If you ever had the joy to look at a iPhone and use one, you can quickly see why this is so. Only the experience of the eMail client and let alone the browsing experience on the iPhone are way ahead of any other device.

Anyhow, I will post a my iPhone experiences in a later blog post.

I know that some people don’t like Bill Gates for his work on Windows, but really, apart from that, he is a good guy and deserves all of our respect with what he is doing in this world. It takes a great person to share his wealth and trying to…

The peace of mind for your eMail InBox

In the last weeks I have started to adopt to the “Get Things Done” approach for eMail management. See, I (used) to have 3 eMails accounts (nothing spectacular for most people) but had over 20000 messages in sub folders based on projects, dates, customers and so on. My task was…

How to update a ESXi server

All of my servers run a flavor of a virtual infrastructure. Most popular is probably the VMWare ESX and ESXi series. Especially, the ESXi offering is a freely available virtualization platform that allows you to host virtual machines hassle free. So, with any offering there has to be some distinction…

Revelation in Relationships

The other day a good friend of mine asked me why relationships between couples suffer so much and why among a lot of our friends (I am sure you know some as well) are suffering from divorce or are about to get separated. Now, I am no expert in relationships…

CentOS NetInstall Settings
