Caught between the Google and Yahoo wave…

leave a comment »

The WWW is undergoing some serious transformations these days. Thanks to the revolutionary competition between the 2 giants Yahoo and Google. There have been some news or the other these days from that are leading a much aggressive revolution in the web. I think the recent news that has stuck me was the agreeing of Google to acquire YouTube.com, a consumer media company for people to watch and share original videos worldwide through a Web experience. This increases the strength of the search engine giant to many more folds and makes it a better competent for Yahoo as far as web video is concerned.

Get the facts from

The good news is that there are tonnes of news to follow that would leave us with some good thoughts to pass on and this certainly will be a healthy ground for aspiring Creatives and Interaction designers. Watch out for the cool stuffs…..

The Perfect Interface a.k.a Yahoo Beta Mail

leave a comment »

Yes…its the perfect mail interface ive ever worked with. The all new Yahoo mail beta interface is the coolest of all, ive ever used. Having had a found out how friendly that interface was, i was just wondering if yahoo is gonna lead the next generation interface revolution in web. They are giving a lot of efforts into the user experience and interaction design in each and every products of theirs. This also is a evident threat to their arch rival – Google. But google is another giant in this field and never one to be underestimated, they are really into this competition by making some key acquisitions of some strategic companies….the acquisition of Youtube.com being one of the costliest ever acquisition done by google for a single company.
Get the facts and figures about the deal from – http://www.google.com/intl/en/press/

This huge leap for google will help them match their video presence in web with that of yahoo. Lets watch patiently what this competition is going to gift us with. No doubt there is something i n the store for us that is far better than the present……lets hope atleast 🙂

The constituents of success…not cake ofcourse !

leave a comment »

The passed-by week was one of the important moments in my professional life. There were instances that made me know my shortcomings and there were some eventful days that really brought about a seriousness in me. I was always taking things for granted and that week showed me how dangerous those casual approach will be to one’s career. It has been an eyeopener for me and ive found many key factors that are unavoidable and essential for a clear and successful career.
Being a creative designer, patience is a compulsory trait and that is ought to come through experience. But, ive understood that the soft skills or exceptional talent in designing an awesome layout or sailing through an application are never the skills that would help one designer climb the corporate ladder upwards. Those are just the weapons that one might have to sharpen even more, daily, for surviving in the exploding competition day by day. The things that actually matter are the interpersonal skills and ability to lead an organised life. I personally believe that once you are confident enough in your personal life the confidence in your professional life follows…those just follow. In a drive to set some of my shortcomings right…im focussed on my interpersonal and other skills like concentration and organised approach.

So by now….its all the known fact that success is not a cake walk and ive just realised that…;)
