Five minute management course

I've got a fun and interesting mail form my Indian friend (Raghu).
Now, I share the inspiring mail with you.

A man is getting into the shower just as his wife is finishing up her shower, when the doorbell rings.

The wife quickly wraps herself in a towel and runs downstairs.

When she opens the door, there stands Bob, the next-door neighbour.

Before she says a word, Bob says, 'I'll give you $800 to drop that towel.'

After thinking for a moment, the woman drops her towel and stands naked in front of Bob, after a few seconds, Bob hands her $800 and leaves.

The woman wraps back up in the towel and goes back upstairs.

When she gets to the bathroom, her husband asks, 'Who was that?'

'It was Bob the next door neighbour,' she replies.

'Great,' the husband says, 'did he say anything about the $800 he owes me?'

Moral of the story
If you share critical information pertaining to credit and risk with your shareholders in time, you may be in a position to prevent avoidable exposure.

This is the reason you should change your password

Change your password :)

Ramya was about to leave office after finishing her work. She got a call from her husband Karthik ,

RAMYA: "Hello, yes Karthi".
K: "Ramya, can you open my gmail and get a print out of the mail from that US consultant I forgot to take it in my office"
RAMYA: "Yes, I can, I need your password"
K: "jeni22091980"
RAMYA: "Ok fine"

She takes the print out and logs out. Some thought struck her mind now.

She decides not to discuss this with Karthi

Recently, I've researched into BREW PEK to improve the current test framework of which I'm in charge. As a result, I found quite useful web page references. So I share them.

Here are web page references (exactly pdf) regarding BREW and PEK (Porting Evaluation Kit) in QUALCOMM

Generally speaking, layered architecture as well as its test framework is in the limelight especially in embedded software world.

PEK (Porting Evaluation Kit) is well-designed test framework. If you are trying to devise a test framework for your software platform which is taking away time both of developers and of test engineers, refer to BREW PEK.

Check your web page loading speed to get more money from Google Adsense

According to CNET News.ocm, Google've started giving priority by web page loading speed. You can also find this new policy on Inside AdWords blog.

Google seems to apply the 3rd thing (namely, Fast is better than slow) in Ten things Googl has found to be true.

As a result, high page loading speed may get higher Quality Score, while low page loading speed may get lower Quality Score. And as you guess high Quality Score lower minimum bids.
