Checking e-mail is not work. Innovating new solutions to existing problems is. But how to get more productive? Schedule out time. Displace distractions. Calm down. And try now.
Have you ever had a powdered vegan donut that melts in your mouth the moment it touches your tongue? The sweetness is just right the consistency is chewy with a slight crunch due to its warmth. Then there’s the after taste, the donut’s every element from vanilla scented essence to the powdered sugar to its salty dough, all combine to give you that satisfaction that only a vegan and Jain donut can provide. Well if songs were holey pastries then surely this episode would be two dozen mini versions of those. Short, sweet and worth sharing.
Rebranding Coca-Cola for a country that lived without it for more than 60 years. An interesting analysis of the bottle alone.
(via Translating The Coca-Cola Experience : Planet Money). For more about Coke’s return to Myanmar, listen to Robert Smith’s story on Morning Edition.
Google offers only two tiers of service for its residential broadband service: a 1Gbps service for $70 a month and a 5Mbps service that is free with a $300 fiber installation fee that can be paid for over two years. While the 1Gbps service is slightly higher than the $40 to $50 most consumers pay each month for broadband, it’s still a better value.
Those other services priced at that amount generally only offer 5Mbps to 10Mbps of download speeds and even slower upload connections. Providers that are offering 100Mbps of broadband service are charging $300 or $400 a month. At $70 for 1Gbps, Google Fiber is simply a better value. It offers 10 times the capacity for less than a third or a quarter of the cost. Even providers that can offer 1Gbps of service are charging over $1,000 a month for that service.
Newsflash: if you offer an amazing service in a sea of shitty ones, people will not only pay for it, they’ll beg for the option to pay for it. This tends to create “moneymakers”.
Hey Friends/ Followers/ Family/ Appreciaters of Quality Art! One of my very good friends, Mr Tim Jarosz, has just released some of his artwork from when we were in NYC together. His work is all made from photographs; cut out and pieced back together after being run through his own special blend of processees giving them a beautiful color and texture. I really love Tim’s sensibilities and his work never fails to blow me away. I’m looking forward to owning a couple of these myself, and you can too! If you click through the link below and go to his store - if you decide to buy anything use the code ‘nickgerber’ at checkout and you’ll get 10% off the WHOLE ORDER. So there ya go! Go git some art! PS - this one is my personal fave

Shama Kabani is a name worth knowing. Her panache for the game is quite evident in her success. Kudos to her.
