iPhone or HTC EVO-Who wins; You the consumer

Let me start off by saying, I am not here to review these two units, this is an observation. I have been reading lots of reviews about the EVO and the iPhone. It seems to me that the reviews that are coming in are either HTC biased or Apple biased. I can give you countless blogs to look up regarding the above mentioned information. As a matter of fact if you type it in to your trusty search engine, you will find the debate rages on as to which platform is better.

I am writing this blog because it seems that many reporters are becoming brand biased. I understand that…I own a mac and must say that I prefer the experience over windows. I also know people that love windows over mac. I don't feel there is a clear winner. Yes I may have points about my mac that i could sell to a non mac user, but in the end it boils down to their experience.

Things I think consumers should be wary of when looking at what I call biased comparisons.

  • Battery life comments

  • Screen size or size of the phone

  • What phone cannot do

  • App store vs Android Marketplace

  • claims that one device is flawed over the other

  • flaky software

  • These are just a few of the things to be wary of. Today we have become a "bashing" society. We look for the flaws in everyone and everything. I have been in sales my entire life and the one thing i learned from my father a long time ago, "Never ever bash your competition". People with agenda's bash the competition. We live in a free market. The beauty of the article I am writing is to educate people. Make sure you are reading with a keen eye. I am an iphone user and I do enjoy it, however, I am also an educated consumer. I don't buy things just because people that love something tell me that another device is not right for me. Do your homework, talk to friends, scour the web, read articles---Get informed. Make sure you do it in an unbiased way. The beauty of todays market place is that companies realize you have a choice and they also give you a window of time to experience their product and if you are not satisfied you can give it back.

    Thanks for your time and make sure you educate yourself. Buyer beware. If you disagree or agree with me, I would love to hear your comments.

    Until next time...

    Feels like a throat punch to my heart

    So, I thought today was going to be just another Sunday of lounging around and netflixing.  I don't think I have ever been so wrong in my life.  To start with, Facebook reminded me of my memories.  I happened to click on a friends link and decided to follow another link to my very first girlfriends sisters page.  Its random how I got there, but I blame facebook.

    To my shock, I saw that her sister had passed on the 22nd of November.  I was shocked because I knew that she wasn't that old.  I reached out to an old mutual acquaintance and found out it was pretty sudden and unexpected.  That had me in some kinda mood.  Because of that, I began to text and email friends and check in and make sure then were okay.

    I got a text message from a close colleague I used to work with at a previous job.

    Beck: "whats shakin CB"
    Me: "Not much just wanted to say hello.  Had a wake up call today.  Found out first girlfriends sister just passed away.  So sad...she was young"

    Screw back up plans

    Yes I said it.  Yes I have had quite a few unsuccessful ventures and I have recently started reading blogs that suggest backup plans.  I don't agree and I will tell you why.

    When you have a back up plan you have an "oh shit that didn't work and I have to do something about it". Its like whatever it is going on in your life is going to fail or stop being at some point. Newsflash: You are correct!  NOTHING lasts forever. Your job, your marriage, your income stream, your family and most certainly not your startup or your job.  For those of you wishing to go back to the old days, its not going to happen.  The age of chivalry is dying and the startup that you create will be dead within 10-15 years.  We don't live in our parents or grandparents economy. Hell the way we communicate is changing. See example below and try and decipher what I am saying to you


    Did you figure it out yet.  If so, please pat yourself …

    Just a friendly update on me :-)

    Hey everyone

    Just wanted to give an update. You may remember that I said I was going to be coming back to California, well it is official.  I am heading down May 1. I will most likely take the train and stop in Napa to visit my cousin Stephen Bordes at his winery for a day or two.  From there, I will catch a train to San diego.

    I am currently looking for work and open to any positions that may be available, I just ask that you don't hold it against me because I have a masters degree.  I have seen many companies shy away from hiring me because I have a Masters Degree.  I am honestly looking to get off my feet and find a base of operation. My home is California and I know that now.  I am native and the air, soil and water are in my bones.

    I am looking to establish which means I will need to find a place to live (that I pay for monthly), maybe even get a car (down the road) for now I know that I will have to use the bus and I am okay with that. I am nervous as hell about this move …
