Profit Strategy for Nokia using NGAGE

NGAGE was touted as the next big thing in gaming. Nokia used it as artillery to jump into the battle of portable gaming which had a large market but non-existent players. NGAGE, currently, is being targeted mainly at youth. But as imagined by the company, it has not been accepted by the youth at a large scale. First it was NGAGE which had a lots of design flaws. The company, being quick in recognizing, corrected the flaws and launched NGAGE QD.

NGAGE-QD has the potential to revolutionize the gaming industry world wide. But it has not become a mass phenomenon not because it is not good enough but because the vision of company is limited to selling handsets. For a product to become a mass phenomenon, killer ness is what is needed. If you bring a radical new product and go and sell it with the same strategy, it won’t work.… Read the rest

Ngage QD: Should I buy or not??

I’m a great lover of gizmos… especially mobile phones. Today I’m changing my 3rd mobile. First I had Nokia 2300, then Samsung C100, then Nokia 6610 and now I’m planning to buy Ngage QD.
BuT I’m confused. I’ve heard that Nokia are releasing Ngage 2 at E3 2005. But this is just a hoax/rumour. Should I buy QD now or should I wait for next ngage????

Ngage QD is really a cool phone. And coolness of a phone directly depends upon the quality and quantity of software available for that phone. And in this case infinite high quality games are available on the net e.g www.mobango.com and other forums such as www.iphone-forum.org

Alter egos

So here am I, the first page of a possibly endless novel. Waiting for a call from my alter ego. So what do u think, should we have an alter ego? Note one thing, having one helps a lot. You become what people want from u. Means u are more flexible just like a chameleon.. I have not one but many alter egos & I myself does not know who the real I is? The real I must be somewhere squeezed between all of my other egos. One friendly, Other pretending to be Over smart, other getting humiliated from small but obvious talks which other people enjoy, other music loving hardcore geek, one extremely emotional, other extremely practical. There are endless other traits of a Gemini like me. I don’t know why but I love to live a complicated yet simple (confused? Me too!)… Read the rest

Science questions….

Below are the questions which I think are really worth to be pondered over:

1) Why does a system wants to stabilize? Why does it wants to minimize energy? To this question I’ve got no answers. No matter which teacher I ask to, I do not get the answer. Now, dont tell me that this is because Mr. Thermodynamics says it so. You should remember that there is still no proof of Laws of Thermodynamics. One case against it; then it’ll be disproved.

2) Why is the velocity of light 3×10^8 not 2×10^8 or any other value? Or more generally, What governs the value of universal constants?

3) What is life? The most basic question. But, still unanswered. I think there is no answer to this definition because life in its diversity has fuzzy characteristics. Can there be silicon, sodium, etc based life? Suppose we replace every carbon atom in body with a silicon atom, would that still be called life?… Read the rest
