Cancer: One Of The Best Thing Ever Happened To Me

What you are about to read is all the advice I’ve been ignoring from the loved ones around me for the past 15 years. Wearing my engineering hat, I’ve added some additional information that I have recently learned. I did my best to make the connection between stress, diet, attitude, the cells in our body, yoga, meditation, and cancer. The article is based on my own battle with cancer, feedback from several oncologists, hematologists, and nutritionists from various countries and meeting other cancer patients ranging in age from 16 to 60. YES! 16 years old girl! Cancer these days has nothing to do with age. So, I hope you are not a moron like me and that at least some of you will listen to the tips here and change your diet.

As a serial entrepreneur who recently beat cancer and been following the story of some other entrepreneurs including Steve Jobs who unfortunately lost his life to cancer,  Amit Gupta who is currently battling Leukemia, and a few other close and young friends who also lost their life to various type of cancers including a very dear friend of mine just last week,   I found it necessary to blog about my case. I hope the story of my life saves the lives of others and that it is a wakeup call for all of you. Read more of this post

6.5 Billion Apps Downloaded From The App Store

At the  Apple press event yesterday, CEO Steve Jobs announced that 6.5 billion apps has been downloaded from the App Store. This number contains both iPad and iPhone apps.

Wholly crap!  I think that’s the population on earth.

Apple hit the 1 billion download in Spring of 2009, so this has been some pretty impressive growth for number of apps downloaded. Read more of this post

Apple Offers Free Bumpers to Remedy iPhone 4 Antenna Issue

Steve Jobs addressed growing concerns over iPhone 4 antenna reception issues at an hastily arranged press conference yesterday, pledging to provide any upset consumers a free $29 “bumper” case that’s said to alleviate reception woes. Those who purchase the device through Sept. 30 will be eligible for the case. Customers who already have purchased a case will receive refunds.

Apple has seen strong sales for the iPhone 4 since its release in mid-June, despite a reception issue that occurs sometimes when users cover the lower left end of the device. The problem — which some have labeled the “death grip” — has sparked growing outcry from customers. Earlier this week, Consumer Reports said that it could not recommend the iPhone 4 due to the flaw, and then on Thursday, U.S. Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) published an open letter to Apple asking that the company fix the problem free of charge. Jobs, however, said that his company had been working to resolve the issue for more than three weeks. Read more of this post

What will Apple have to say about iPhone4 Antenna fix?

Apple has scheduled a press conference today to discuss its latest iPhone 4 and we just might be looking at that expected software fix for the now infamous reception issues plaguing the device.

Apple has already acknowledged that holding the iPhone 4 in a certain way — covering the lower left end of the device — can impede its reception, but was quick to point the real blame on an incorrect formula it was using to calculate how many reception bars appear on the device. Earlier this week, Consumer Reports said after testing it could not recommend the iPhone 4 due to what it called a hardware flaw with the antenna. Read more of this post

The Good the Bad the Ugly and the Bitch

by Elias Shams
Thanks to Apple for their iPhone phenomena which has transformed the old fashion mobile phones to our mini computing devices in four years which explains why everyone is after them – from the software giant, Microsoft to the search engine giant, Google to the mobile handset vendor giant, HTC. The War is getting bad, ugly, and bitchy 🙂 see more…

Jon Stewart on Apple Mafia

by Elias Shams
Once again, Jon Stewart showed why he is the smartest man in the media.

The best of The Daily show this week was the one on Wednesday night in response to the Gizmodo exclusive on the lost iPhone and the ensuing raid on its editor’s home.

Jon addressed Steve Jobs on camera specifically, Stewart feared that the mad genius would “go all Howard Hughes” on us. And of course, no bit on Apple would be complete without an inspired rant against AT&T, who makes their “amazing phone unusable as a phone.” see more…

Apple The Greek VS Adobe The Trojan

by Elias Shams
Referring to one of my last post about Steve Jobs using iPad as his Trojan Horse, I am slowly beginning to believe that indeed he launched the iPad to revolutionize the Web by killing the Flash with HTML5 using the iPad as his Trojan Horse:

According to the recent poll conducted by Mashable, HTML5 handily knocked out Adobe Flash. With 3,891 votes, HTML5 garnered 61% of the polls. Adobe Flash was able to muster 1,779 votes (28%), while 660 said it was a tie (10%). Read more…
