Tweetposts - 15th Aug 2010, Sunday

Dropped off my vehicle for service yesterday. Instead of returning back home by bus, thought of taking a walk. Was close to 5-6 kms. Felt really tired in the end. Body is in bad shape! One extenuating factor was that it was from 12:30pm to 2:00pm and it was really warm.

Saw an ad for Sony Vaio. Kareena Kapoor in scanty clothes in blowout size holding the laptop. Guess that rules out Vaio if I need to purchase a laptop in the future.

Mostly with corporations becoming so large, one easily replicates another's creation with their financial clout. Is it really easy to stay continuously innovative and a step ahead?
CIP1 - Parle came out with a drink called LMN. Coca Cola and Pepsi were quick to follow suit with their own drinks quickly.
CIP2 - Flip HD - now we have Vado HD, versions from Sony et al
I think it is possible to be original and innovative continuously. But you have to be on your toes all the time. Microsoft tried to beat Quicken with its clout but Quicken was always on top eventually causing Microsoft to withdraw the product (after years of fight!)
Apple also comes to mind. MS is struggling to keep pace with its tablet offerings while iPad sells millions of units in a matter of months.
