ajax Applications from ajaxLaunch!



Ok on this second round up before we totally say nay to ajax apps from Michael. I was compelled to take a quick look at the ajax Applications. Check out the ajaxLaunch.com yourself.

ajaxwrite(Word type)

Choose your region...



It does load fast!



Some observations...



Interoperability...




ajaxsketch(Diagrammer)



ajaxxls(Excel type)



ajaxtunes(play mp3s)

eyespot(play/run videos)

My Quick observations:




They are indeed:
  • fast (they're just couple hundred KB files)
  • user friendly
  • Work fine on Firefox
  • Interoperable
No matter what these market developments only show that MS's OS and Office suite are going to come under serious fire in the coming months (I don't think they should wait for years). Things are moving on the web and the pace is really picking up real fast.

My word of advice to all these webOS folks?

Two words:
  • Security
  • Performance (And by performance I mean user experience, not the performance from a performance engineer point of view!)
Don't have these, you won't even last a millisecond!

Redhot Future Of IT Part I :Marketing yourself as IT professional

I had promised about the "RedHot IT Future Series" and so we discuss here how you should market yourself EFFECTIVELY as an IT professional in this new (and dangerous) web age! Web is the place where you're a hero today and villain tomorrow. While there are lots of professionals who are active on the web, not all are enjoying a good reputation as they got "personal" with others and got into a cockfight. The passive IT professional has nothing to lose but nothing to gain at all!

I know "marketing" might seem as a greasy term but the idea is to have the truth about you out there. You know you're a good person and your family knows that you're really smart person but the rest of the world doesn't!
