A Professor at one of the IIM’s (INDIA) was explaining marketing concepts to the Students:-

1. You see a gorgeous girl at a party. You go up to her and say: “I am very rich. Marry me!” – That’s Direct Marketing

2. You’re at a party with a bunch of friends and see a gorgeous girl. One of your friends goes up to her and pointing at you says: “He’s very rich. Marry him.” – That’s Advertising

3. You see a gorgeous girl at a party. You go up to her and get her telephone number. The next day, you call and say: “Hi, I’m very rich. Marry me.” – That’s Telemarketing

4. You’re at a party and see gorgeous girl. You get up and straighten your tie, you walk up to her and pour her a drink, and you open the door (of the car) for her, pick up her bag after she drops it, offer her ride and then say: By the way, I’m rich. Will you marry me?” – That’s Public Relations

5. You’re at a party and see gorgeous girl. She walks up to you and says: You are very rich! Can you marry ! me?” – That’s Brand Recognition

6. You see a gorgeous girl at a party. You go up to her and say: I am very rich. Marry me!” She gives you a nice hard slap on your face. – That’s Customer Feedback

7. You see a gorgeous girl at a party. You go up to her and say: “I am very rich. Marry me!” And she introduces you to her husband. – That’s demand and supply gap

8. You see a gorgeous girl at a party. You go up to her and before you say anything, another person come and tell her: “I’m rich. Will you marry me?” and she goes with him – That’s competition eating into your market share

9. You see a gorgeous girl at a party. You go up to her and before you say: “I’m rich, Marry me!” your wife arrives. – That’s restriction for entering new market.

Oh iPhone rumors, how I love thee

Posted in Technology by Ali on May 21, 2009

We’re just a little more than two weeks away from the rumored release/announcement of the new version of the iPhone.

It’s expected that the Apple will release the 3.0 software at the World Wide Developers Conference on June 8th (no Jobs, but Phil Schiller will be doing the keynote). Having a few
friends and colleagues who have started developing for the iPhone — I’ve actually got to play with the beta a bit. I must say, as nice as cut and paste is, the search is my favorite new feature. Being able to search through emails,
contacts and anything else on my phone is way nice (and one of the main features I missed when I first got the phone last year).

The real question is — will new hardware be announced at the same time? Some of the big rumors surrounding video recording (that it will only work on new hardware) point to it coming soon — and has sparked a flurry of rumors to go with it.

Some say you will be able to edit video on the phone. If this comes true, I suspect it will be more about trimming to make the video shorter than making it theater-worthy.

There’s also a host of rumors surrounding Apple developing custom innards for the phone – custom processor, OLED screen, a specially designed battery – although those seem more likely for a further away iteration than anything we’re likely to see this year.

I’m hoping for increased capacity (really a no brainer, but how big will it be? … 80 GB iPhone please?) and a better camera. Three megapixels would be acceptable, 4 would be grand and 5 would actually be worth using.

What do you think Apple should provide with a hardware update to the phone? And which of these rumors sound too good to be true? OHH and just to bait the water a little – what are the chances Apple will finally come through with the long rumored netbook/tablet?

lost my email account..

Posted in Personal by Ali on May 16, 2009

Something really serious for all new blogger @ word press to know..

happy to have my domain pointed to my word press blog, i was all gung ho about it.. but something which i never expected happened to me.. this is really sad.. and that’s the reason, we should not expect anything out of anyone.. .. i always decide to be prepared for the worst.. and then re-decide for the next time after the worst is already here.. more preventive steps i take .. more discoveries of worst come across.. 

once my domain pointed to the word press name servers.. i stop receiving emails in my domain’s account that’s – da_dude@alihasni.com … sad for me that i did not suspect word press for this.. since i had just changed the name servers and not the mx record which manages the email server.. so there was no question to suspect word press for this..

how ever… pass 4 days i had not been receiving any emails in my account and this made me really wonder.. not even my regular subscriptions were delivered.. i receive 30 to 40 emails a day.. and there was nothing in 4 days.. 

then i tried writing an email to my self and to my shock i realised that it is bouncing back for some reason.. like a fool i decided to take the matter up my self instead of writing to Microsoft… i logged in to my Windows Admin Control Panel and there it showed me pending dns configuration.. i still did not suspect word press that this could be because i changed my name servers…

thinking something might have gone wrong .. i changed the mx record again to what the page on Windows Admin Control Panel was asking me to do…

this still did not work.. because somehow word press had got the mx record setting in their control .. although i have not registered the domain with them.. had just pointed the name servers to them.,,,

then only God knows what i was trying to discover.. I clicked on a button that said Edit Mail Box and then pressed OK.. in spite of the warning that i could lose my messages.

if you believe me.. every single communication i had in my in box, draft, sent box everything is gone.. all my folders.. and i do not have a backup… 

i did not lose my cool this time.. and i do not know why.. although this is really important to me.. may be i have just got use to losing important stuff… or i have seriously gained control over emotions.. i just shut down the pc after seeing i have lost every communication of mine and diverted my mind from there.. 

damn there were more than 7000 mails and 1500 unread mails.. which i still had to read in detail… 

after 2 days…. still hunting for the mistake i made.. i was going through the word press faq to see that if i change my name servers does it really affect my mx record.. and there it said .. yes i will not be able to continue with my mail service.. DAMN >> why did i not read this first????

i wrote to Microsoft today.. asking them to somehow restore my in box with all my folders and mails.. hope they co-operate and do it.. till then my email will not be working ….

i now decide to keep a redirection page on my domain to word press blog instead of pointing dns.. because i just love the Hotmail Interface.. and now it’s Windows Live.. it’s even better.. and I want to keep up to this.. 

so please please pray … that i get my communications back somehow..

Beacon High… Admissions

Posted in TECNOCRAT by Ali on May 11, 2009

http://www.beaconhigh.co.in has completed 1 academic year successfully.. making the life of the school management much easier … we have got good, great feedback from both parents and teachers… i am happy to see the client satisfied.. and at the end of the day that is what matters to tecnocrat..

BeaconHigh Website
BeaconHigh Website Snapshot

 

 

now the school is looking forward to launch an on line registration page for admissions…it would be something no school has done before in the ICSE Board… we are under the development phase.. it will be soon developed but will function once the admissions are open.. that is in November..

the registrant will have the option to track their form after submission.. Initially the school is going to implement this with the existing system of selling forms at the school office and accepting it there… and at a later stage make the system completely on line..

we are hoping for a good response .. hope it is a success…

ZindaIslam.com .. on it’s way to launch

Posted in TECNOCRAT by Ali on May 9, 2009

we had a discussion on few spritual and religious topics and then started talking about how tech savvy our community should get and people should work on this… thoughts got translated in to talks and talks in to action…

Mr. Tauseef Zaidi …. my mamu who i was discussing with on this.. decided to get a website developed which aims at digitalising the Shi’a Community… by giving them news updates of happenings of Shi’a Muslims around the world .. and a resource to Multimedia ,, which would have Holy Quran, Duas, Hadith, Majalis and all possible thing in different format which can conviniently be downloaded from the website…

idea -not being very new … because many websites have already done this.. but the thing which would differ would be the management of this content..

a backend developed in .net which would easily manage the content, post news letters, add news and happenings, and manage the discussion board… so they are all there togeather clubbed in one website.. the site becomes so easy with the backend that only one user can manage the whole ton of content..

it is going to be something like clubbing shiachat.com, azadari.com, hussainiat.com, jafariyanews.com … all of them togeather…it’s in the last phase of testing and data entry.. the launch date is fixed on the 23rd May, 2009..

the website ZindaIslam.com,  is under the banner of Acti Islamic Development Organisations …. which inturn would be dedicated to my nana and dada.. Syed Mashooq Hussain, and Syed Majid Hasan

and the line that fits the theme of the website,
“Islam Zinda Hota Hain, Har Karbala Ke Bad”

to start blogging with…

This is really something great said by some one.. everyone should have this drilled into their minds — no one can ever accept defeat if he understands the true meaning of this..

The way of Allah SWT is that he takes you down so much for you to realise that witin all the losses lies the opportunity to correct them..

from the bottom the only way out is to look upwards

when you are low you lose your faith in God, but it is for you to understand that you can only believe in  God.. if you believe in your self
