Death of Steve Jobs - Apple iPad,iPhone,iPod -My Tribute

I am sad to learn about the Death of a true genius, the inventor of Apple iPad and iPhone, Steve Jobs.

I did think that he might die soon after reading about his long leave of absence from Apple. I did not mean to think that way. The thought sort of came to me that he may die soon. Somehow, Apple would not be the same any longer; the iPads, the iPhones, etc would not be the same anymore. I think that they might lack 'something', I do not know.

When I first read his biography, I was amazed by his inner courage, strength and determination to go on inventing in spite of his failing health. He did not need the money, his health was ailing and yet, the passion and drive was there. This very passion and drive made Apple what it is today, from a flagging company to a world-renowned company.

I thought to myself, "How could he go on working, go on inventing with all the pain and agony inside due to his illness?" I do not think that I would have had such strength and such will to do so. It is pure passion, drive and inner strength, and perhaps, grace from God. How else do you explain his determination to go on inventing, go on improving Apple products in spite of all the pain and suffering inside of him?

All I can say is, "May God Rest His soul: R.I.P Steve Jobs, wherever you are. Thank you for your amazing contribution to this world at large. More importantly, thank you for the amazing example of inner courage, strength, determination, passion, drive and intelligence. I salute you as the inventor of Apple iPads and iPhones. More importantly, I salute you as an amazing example of a pillar of inner strength, courage, determination, passion and drive. Let your example be a motivator for my life too".

Best way to save money, time and energy on your necessities

Immaterial of whether a person is young or old, there are three necessities in a person's life - food, clothing and shelter.

If you buy low quality clothing solely due to its pricing, you may end up spending more money than you bargained for. For example, a faux leather jacket of questionable quality would not be able to withstand the elements of cold weather for long. So, you may have to purchase another similar jacket sooner than expected to keep yourself warm while venturing out in the cold weather.

Rather than buying a number of such low quality jackets, investing your hard-earned money in a good quality leather jacket for long-term use might be wiser. If you are on a tight budget, do not worry. You can purchase a high quality leather jacket for a good price in the virtual world nowadays.

It is not necessary to search all over the place for bargains anymore. Save your money, time and energy by buying one of life's necessities, port authority clothing from a suitable Internet distributor. Take your pick from a unique selection of designs for leather jackets, knit shirts, sweaters and other items for your whole family.

Buying a number of clothing pieces might mean cheaper pricing. There are clothing sizes, which range from XS right up to 6XL. So, selecting the best port authority clothing for your whole family should not be a problem at all.

How to choose the best freelancing rate

I am tired of some people asking for a low rate per article. If you intend to pay the price of peanuts for an article, expect to get that level of quality. Why do people expect perfect grammar, spelling and good quality content for the price of peanuts?


Money is important for freelancers. That is how I make my living. How do you expect me to survive if I am paid the price of peanuts per article? With much 'respect to peanuts' for their nutritional value, high quality content comes with a price.

Making money as a freelancer does not seem easy these days. Sigh...There are requests for 500 word articles for the price of US1 Dollar these days. If you search in Bing, Google or Yahoo, you can find a number of people who offer such a price.

So, what is the best freelancing rate for a 100, 200, 300, 400 or 500-word article? Is it US2 Dollars for a 100- word article or much higher? I think that aspects like writing background, years of experience and level of education should be taken into account for setting the best freelancing rate.

What is your chosen rate? Are you selling yourself short?

Prepare for your GRE Test without paying a cent with GRE Prep Book

GRE or Graduate Record Examination General Test is worth taking, not merely to get an admission to a university or a college, but for your overall career and education as well. By taking a GRE Test and gauging the score, you would have some idea about your level of critical thinking, verbal reasoning, analytical writing and quantitative reasoning.

As with any other test, it is best to prepare beforehand. When you practice for your test, you also get a wonderful chance to develop your skills in critical thinking, verbal reasoning, analytical writing and quantitative reasoning. GRE Prep Book offers such a wonderful opportunity. The online site, which was set up by three students, offers various forms of tests and practice questions for GRE.

You do not have to pay a single cent to try out the various tests and practice questions. "Practice makes perfect" - GRE Prep Book seems to have taken a great deal of initiative to set up the right questions for covering all the aspects of a GRE General Test. However, I think that it would be better if GRE Prep Book removed the word "pariah" from its list of "20 GRE words you can use to talk behind people’s back".

The word "pariah" is highly sensitive especially among people of Indian origin. It was widely used in India to refer to those who were from the lowest Indian caste. GRE is mainly aimed at students and prospective students from all over the world. So, it might be better to remove the particular word from its online site.

If you are looking for a great opportunity to practice for GRE or to look at possible GRE Test questions, check out GRE Prep Book.

Gold Rush Alaska - Should you try?

The price of gold is expected to increase over the next few months due to the weakening US dollar. Many countries such as India and China bought gold bars for safekeeping. So, if you want to make some money in spite of the bad economic condition, gold is the perfect commodity.

You can try your hand at spot gold trading or buying and selling bullion gold coins or bars. Another alternative is to buy and sell scrap gold. Some people believe that there is gold in Alaska especially after reading the news related to Sarah Palin. You never know. There might be some truth in it.

A few years ago, some people found gold in some remote and unexplored areas in Europe. So, yes, there is a possibility of finding gold in Alaska, especially in unexplored areas. Should you head down to Alaska for a spot of adventure? Why not? You may strike GOLD!

New Year resolution for 2011 : Save, save, save!

That is all what I can think of. Save, save, save during 2011, wherever and whenever I can...for a rainy day or an emergency!

It may seem impossible. But, as the saying goes, a penny saved is a penny gained. I know of people who earned little and managed to save a great deal over the years. Of course, they made some sacrifices. A simple life may seem unpalatable. But, there are benefits. Imagine spending so much money to rich foods at restaurants.

After a couple of years, you might be spending much money for your health! By living a simple life, you have less cravings and yearnings for money. So, you are much happier than before. Some people have left a life of luxury for a more simple and peaceful life.

When it comes to saving money, there are many ways to do so. By spending some time to compare prices, you can spend less for your household or other necessities. Buying in large quantities can save you quite a sum of money. Instead of taking the car everywhere, think about taking public transport. It might be cheaper.

My New Year Resolution for 2011 : Save, save, save!
