Apple? A name can not be underestimated for electronic products. Starting from MacBook, iMac, iPod until the iPhone, all have reached success remarkable enough. Several days ago, Steve Jobs returned to make a new breakthrough with the launch of Apple’s latest product is iPad. A tablet which is the solution between MacBook and iPhone. I myself one of a huge fan of Apple products. Therefore I am quite excited to know the news about this iPad. At first glance this iPad more like a giant iPhone I think. Apple pretty clear to reach the market target on this products. The targeted market is a market for people who are more mobile but still wants wider view than their mobile phone.

Looking at this product, I remember the Amazon Kindle which is a product launched by Amazon. The comparison between the Amazon Kindle and the Apple iPad are inevitable.

When compared which one is better? Let’s look together. Because of its size that is more similar to the Amazon Kindle DX than I would compare it with the Amazon Kindle DX

January 11th, 2010 3 comments

From today, i tried to post some basic knowledge about investing and trading. This is usefull especially for them who don’t know too much about investing and trading field.

It’s impossible to master this field in just couple of days workshop. Read more…

“The Secret” of Success

January 10th, 2010 3 comments

This year, i want to change my style of blogging. I feel some of my post quite too formal  and lack of humanity factor inside. Whereas, if we see the title, It’s Journal of Life. But from what it read on each posting, it’s seem not suitable with the title.

Recent days, i surf to some blog and i read a lot of blog of success people. This remind me to a book and movie called “The Secret”. The film that has been viewed by millions around the world. The Secret has also been released as an audio-book and printed book with more than 16 million copies in print in over 40 languages.

This book tell us about the secret of how we can be success people. I found this is real happen in some of my colleagues life, including mine. Every success and great people even don’t have same personality seems have one similar way of think. Yes that’s positive mindset or in “The Secret” we called “Attraction” theory. Read more…
