Deprive

Deprive.. a woman
of water
for too long

and

she will stop
believing in rivers. 😐 😦

Juncture

And I think its time for her,
its time to be happy again.

She has got someone,
someone She knows She can text at any hour
and tell absolutely anything.

She knows they are trustworthy
and it is the best feeling She had after long. 🙂 ❤

Open Book

So, during the transit today, I heard a song blasting out of the earphones of a girl(with a thoughtful smile) standing at a stretch away. With a feeling that I have heard the song before, I quickly searched and found that the song is named “Open Book” and is from an album called TV Dinners of Mikey McCleary. I first heard this song during a TV add-break. I remember the song was used in a Mobile Network advertisement which impart ‘Moments of life are made for sharing’.

The add shows how life changes for a girl after the breakup. The video is short, just 00:46 seconds long. I hope you’ll like it. ❤

The lyric are as,

I guess my life’s an open book
Anyone can take a look
No secrets here, to hide
This is just me

Holidays that come and go
Feelings change, people grow
And all I know is
I like being free

Da, Da, Da
I’ll be fine
This is me now
But I could change
Any time.

People with Camera

For all those who capture moments.

From the time I am here on WordPress, I have come across plenty of photographs from many different bloggers. All the photographs clicked by the camera person’s are superb. Many of the pictures speak a lot and by the help of tools the pictures are worth far more than a thousand words.

For me, a good photographer is one that communicates the fact, touches the heart and leaves the viewer changed person for having seen it. And Camera is a gadget that helps in capturing moments and not fading up the memories. I read somewhere that photography is an art, it is little to do with things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.

Few of my friends always ask someone to capture pictures of the present time they are enjoying and ya it’s great to keep pictures but as per me it is more important to enjoy those moments than to get busy capturing the moments.

I am not a camera made face as only ugly pictures are captured when lens is focused towards me. 😀
Here’s a little letter to the camera’s and DSLR’s.

Dear Camera,
I hate the way you make me ugly. Mirror is so nice to me. 😛

And then a photographer was born.. who was eager to take a selfie.

Selfie

It is always great when you come across a picture which was clicked last summer, and in a flash a slide show starts in your mind with all those things that happened just before and after that picture was taken. But it is important that you should live in the moment than to regret later that you missed something which could have been done or said that day.

It is just about time. Time will never hold itself for anyone, time flows and the reality will slip into memories.

Remember, The single most important component of a camera is few inches behind it.. 🙂

Falter of my favorite Brand – Nokia

The greatest achievement of humanity is not its works of art, science, or technology, but the recognition of its own dysfunction.

Nokia, not just a brand but a company which touched hearts of millions by selling the quality mobile handsets. The first mobile phone I saw was Nokia 3315, a rock solid usually called “Brick” was an amazing phone. It was the time when for all the people meaning of phone and Nokia were same.

Connecting people, is somewhat like the Microsoft vision of giving everyone a personal computer. And while there are people in certain parts of the 3rd world that doesn’t have mobile phones, I would say Nokia did an amazing job to get a mobile phone into everyone’s hands.

As per techillicious columnist Rajiv Makhni, The newly appointed CEO Stephen Elop was planted in Nokia by Microsoft as a Trojan Horse to destroy the company and buy it out. Nokia was a company that was already starting to falter when Elop came on board. What else could the company have done to survive? Their options seem limited from what we know about the marketplace. They could have release an android phone, but then they just would have been fighting for a piece of the pie that Samsung, Moto, and other phone makers are eating. They could have stayed with their phone OS and probably would have had just about the same fate as picking up Windows Mobile.

When Elop came in as Nokia CEO, Nokia was Number 1 in smartphones sales. In fact, it was Number 1 by a wide margin. Samsung lagged far behind. Nokia was selling about 10 million smartphones a month, more than twice as compared to others.

During Elop’s tenure, Nokia annual revenues fell 40% from 41 Billion Euros per year to 25 Billion Euros per year. Nokia profits fell 92% from 2.4 Billion Euros per year to 188 Million Euros per year. Nokia handset sales fell 40% from 456 million units per year to 274 million units per year. Nokia share price which was at 7.12 Euros on the day Elop was hired, had fallen to 81% to a bottom level of 1.44 Euros two years later, after which it began trading at 4.14 Euros, up 36% on the day. Elop’s success in negotiating the sale of Nokia’s struggling mobile device business to Microsoft has been described by many securities analysts as a significant victory for NOK shareholders, particularly when viewed in context of failed efforts by Blackberry or HP to secure value for handset business owned by those companies.

I saw few lines on Nokia which I read few years back. These line describe’s the love of people for their favorite brand.

Playing snake until the death,
While some create ringtones,
It was an unbreakable phone,
I’ll remember till my last breath.

This is a company loved by all, a brand that evokes a warm feeling of joy and comfort, a brand that is identified with starting the entire mobile phone revolution. More competition is always a good thing but for Nokia  it became tough to fight for its existence. The Nokia story will always remind us of how quickly even large companies can die in today’s world. They didn’t even see it coming.

There is always a last time for everything.

Mozzila Lightbeam – Firefox tool shows who is tracking your online movements

Mozilla, the open-source software community responsible for the Firefox browser, has released a new download that allows users to identify who’s tracking their Internet movements.

A 11 years old software company has released something which is in interest of each individual using the Internet. “Lightbeam,” the free Firefox extension will enable users to see which third party companies are monitoring their online presence, a move that Mozilla states will “illuminate the inner workings of the web.”

Lightbeam creates a visual representation of all the third parties that are active on the websites we visit. Typically, that would include advertisers or other companies looking to sell your data for marketing purposes. Mozilla is also encouraging Lightbeam users to crowd-source their data in order to generate “a big-picture view of how tracking works on the Internet,” potentially singling out which companies are the most active in their monitoring.

As per Mozzila, the visualization grows with every site we visit and every request made from our browser. In addition to the graph view, we can also see our data in a clock view to examine connections over a 24-hour period or in a List view to drill down into individual sites.

Lightbeam will create a record of events for every site we visit and every third party site that is stored locally on our browser. Lightbeam visually graphs these events to highlight the interactions between sites we intentionally visit and the third parties. It will surely help us to learn how the Internet tracking take place.
