Coming out of another exciting apple event on April 20th, 2021, it is quite clear the star of the show was the new iPad pro.
As we have come to expect, it portrayed an even more powerful machine than ever before, all enclosed in a sheet of glass.
During the apple keynote (if you can call it that anymore with the recorded sessions), we heard some very high level tech jargon which actually means something to a lot of people — Not to me but to people I have never met and who I am sure are very nerdy and…
The world of cryptocurrencies has taken the world by storm — Whether you understand it or do not, it is equally enchanting — a financial world free from any bias or barriers.
But as one of my friends keeps reminding me,
everything bad comes from something that was intended to be good
Our immediate attention goes to criminals and drug traffickers which would surely be thrilled by the prospects, but that is probably just the tip of the iceberg. …
What is the cheapest food in the world?
Is it American or is it Chinese or is it Middle eastern or is it Pakistani or is it Indian?
Could it be Mexican?
Yes, it is all of the above — But here is the catch — They are all both the most expensive and the least. Price is not an indicator of the recipe here, just the parking, ambience and how politely the waiter might address you. The level of hygiene may aLso play SOme RoLe.

The latest ‘understanding’ of the bitcoin phenomenon is that it is digital gold.
(more on that in a bit)
Other times when we have heard such statements where gold was used as a prefix to another commodity was when it apparently had to do with colors but of course we know better.
Oil being the black gold
Unfortunately, Heroin being the white gold.
Ultimately, gold was gold and diamonds are a girl’s best friend but then how does an investor like ourselves figure out what is the intrinsic value of something to be able to make a sound decision with…
We are going to talk about the huge gap between Hollywood movies and how they depict certain regions, people and cultures and why they are not aware that this is making the natives scratch their heads in dismay and throwing things at their TV — soft cushy things obviously.
To begin, I assume we all know about the orange filter.
We are talking about this:
Once in a while, the universe chooses to move at the speed of light and iPhones are born, jet engines are invented and radio frequency bands are discovered.
The rest of the time, a slow evolutionary process keeps ticking away when these technologies are incremented in short bursts owing to customer demand and to what is economically viable and scientifically possible.
Take a car for example, where the historic changes were automatic transmission, hybrids, electric and possibly hydrogen fueled. Rest of the time, year after year, you get new models with headlights in LED, warmer seats, apple car play compatibility…
“You gave me a weapon, sent me to battle, the time came and I looked into the eyes of the enemy, called upon god as witness, held my breath and gently pulled the trigger . . . then nothing happened — because it was empty”
Thats what my Ex-boss accused me of doing to him after I gave him a report based on the wrong data logic and he happily walked into a senior management meeting with it.
How the rest of my day unfolded is another story, however a quick check revealed that the data was clean, the report…
A good chance is that you do not know about Cluedo because either you were born too late in the last century or like me you found the game too complicated to learn and play in the days we had the time to learn and play.
In short, a certain Mr. Body is found murdered in his home/mansion and the goal is to find the room where he was murdered, which weapon was used and who did it.
Now here is the part I always found strange — as one of the players, you are a suspect yourself but you…
My first instinct was to say 100 things wrong with Tableau but quickly realizing the futility of that task, I dropped a zero in there. Still it seemed too much for the modern reader — if you cannot convince them with one, then you cannot convince them with 10 or a 100.
