"App looks good.  A few observations: - the opening screen requires an extra touch to access the actual news.  this could probably be replaced with a teaser card for each section  - why have 5 mins and 10 mins news? your usp is 120…"

Abey John replied to Chetan Kambli's discussion Product Recommendation Site.. Do you think it will work ?
""recommendation" vs "comparison" is a huge difference and yes that should give you an edge. And please don't link to success to "passion, hard work, and uniqueness".  That's a recipe for a lot of…"

"With so many product comparison sites already existing in the market what more are you doing to attract the audience? Price comparison is the lowest common denominator and only caters to the price sensitive market.  "

Chrome OS - Doomed Before It Is Out of the Gate (Brain Job #2)

Chrome OS is one big lemon just waiting to drop and get squashed under its own weight.  This has nothing to do with the right-hand competing with the left-hand Android OS although that may be a contributing factor.  More critical is its foundational philosophy.

What is the fun if you can click on it and buy it ? BTW i bought 10 copies of OSR from CIKS in chennai as it is not usually available. Its published by 'other india publications' out of GOA. It costs 150 bucks. I'm sure flipkart will charge you 700 bucks for the same.... I did buy crossing the chasm from flipkart though...

If you remember your Dune, a refugee to a sietch who does not have the required symbols is summarily challenged to a thaddi, killed and rendered for his water. Hope that is not the case with rodinhoods :) After all this is not Jacarutu. Lets wait for Kralizec for that ....
