What more did you expect, Pat?

What's your wish list?

Usability. Before i get hit with a ton of bricks hear me out.

I am OS agnostic, have bought a droid for my wife, used/loved/lost an iPhone 4. Now i am trying to get my Wife to pick up the nokia 920 while i myself was waiting for iPhone 5 to replace my lost 4 Piece.

I am disappointed because i think Apple is taking it easy. The competition like WinOS and Android have had dynamic/live home screens be in in form of widgets or tiles.
Apple when it came out with icons was a path breaker, it showed the way but IMHO they have been left behind on that front. iPhones screens are static. They do not do much apart from collate a set of icons.

I do not want to go inside an app to check time, weather, rss updates, news ... yes they have notifications but that is not the same as active content of the screens which is customizable to my needs. Maybe it is a viewpoint but yes Apple was expected to do better. Leave killer features aside, leave the future support.

Apple is expected to plug its gaps, get what its competition does better into iOS as well. Its a deal breaker for me.

Um, the city didn't exist prior to the arrival of the British. The Portuguese called the place "bom bahia" meaning "good bay" and the British anglicized this to "Bombay."

History of Mumbai

The city of Bombay originally consisted of seven islands, namely Colaba, Mazagaon, Old Woman's Island, Wadala, Mahim, Parel, and Matunga-Sion. This group of islands, which have since been joined together by a series of reclamations, formed part of the kingdom of Ashoka, the famous Emperor of India.

After his death, these islands passed into the hands of various Hindu rulers until 1343. In that year, the Mohammedans of Gujerat took possession and the Kings of that province of India ruled for the next two centuries. The only vestige (mark) of their dominion over these islands that remains today is the mosque at Mahim

In 1534 the Portuguese, who already possessed many important trading centers on the western coast, such as Panjim, Daman, and Diu, took Bombay by force of arms from the Mohammedans

Mumbai is named after the a local diety Mumba Devi revered by the original inhabitants, kolis and Agris (fishermen)

Om occurred to me while I was studying for the CISSP exam. One of the domains discuss Acceptance, i.e. acceptance of the inherent risks of an Information System. When I heard Acceptance, I thought of Om. I'm looking at it from a spiritual aspect, i.e. accepting the Universe.

You are almost there regards the meaning. From what i know about Om from my parents.

The audible OM (AUM) is the first step towards clearing your mind(consciousness) to what is to follow. That is the reason we find it preceding texts or rituals or even mundane activities.

How does it do it. The sound if uttered properly is supposed to activate the Chakra located between the eyes. This Chakra represents intuition and connected to the mind part of the body.
A person at peace of mind is able to accept things as they stand which is also depicted by "OM TAT SAT" which means all which is true and hence the feeling of calmness with chanting AUM.

Could you please give an example for where the result of the compilation is not kept long term? Which language?

Why are they so rude... why cant they just give us a chance,train us

Just because of this most of people wind up changing their Jobs

We have had a situation when we hired 3 trainees, 2 left within a week of the training getting over.
We still went ahead and hired a batch of 7 trainees, 4 left within a month of the training.

Some of them didn't even bother informing about the decision to leave. They just stopped coming in. Our company does not believe in bonds which makes it even simpler for people to just stop coming over.

We have stopped hiring trainees henceforth as the effort put into training them is not worth the juice.

You are welcome to try to move the thread in that direction if you like.

Currently more than 1 billion adults are overweight

So if the 1 billion obese people stop overeating, 1 billion people who go hungry because their food got eaten by someone else, wont go hungry any longer.

Such a simple solution and no one saw it yet
