    “You don’t hire for skills, you hire for attitude. You can always teach skills.”

    Like so many before it, the company confused innovation with novelty. Real innovation changes the course of industries or even society. The light bulb, the microwave oven, the fax machine, iTunes. These are true innovations that changed how we conduct business, altered how we live our lives, and, in the case of iTunes, challenged an industry to completely reevaluate its business model.
    Note: novedad vs innovacion…

    There are only two ways to influence human behavior: you can manipulate it or you can inspire it.
    Note: Mejor inspirar que manipular…
  • Andres shared from CRAZY FOR CANDY CRUSH in the NEWSMAKERS section of Newsweek by Brian Ries
    Tech-Crunch guesses it could be as high as $2 million to $3 million a day—enough to have already helped the company blow past its financial targets for the whole year by March.
    Note: Candy Crush: 2 a 3 millones de dolares diarios... menos mal no lo conozco, no trabajaria nada…
  • Andres shared from Big Data, Meet Big Brother in the Commentary section of Time by Fareed Zakaria
    The NSA program Prism aims to identify suspicious patterns to allow the government to prevent terrorism (i.e., to act before an attack takes place). A research project at the Department of Homeland Security that tried to predict terrorist behavior based on people's vital signs--physiological patterns--was 70% accurate, according to the authors.
    Note: USA ya puede predecir delitos como en minority report sentencia previa, el futuro llegó!
  • Andres shared from The Happiness of Pursuit in the Cover Story section of Time by Jeffrey Kluger
    Your shoes are not unique; your TV's not unique. Your vacation to Rome or your family camping trip, however, are much more particularly yours since nobody else in the world did exactly the same things or shared them with exactly the same people you did. And far from wearing out, the memories of the experience grow richer over time. "Money can make you happy," Howell says. "But it's about how you spend it."
    Note: Nadie nos puede quitar lo viajao y lo bailao!, segun TIME es la mejor inversion…
  • Andres shared from CULTURE in the CULTURE section of Newsweek by Marlow Stern
    Danny Boyle's 2002 film 28 Days Later commented on unfettered scientific experimentation, militarism, and the Hobbesian "state of nature" (and reinvented the genre by transforming the undead from limpers to sprinters).
    Note: Gracias a Boyle los zombies son freneticos y no entes lentos como en los 80's, esas me aburrian!!
  • Andres shared from THE FIGHT FOR BLACK MEN in the FEATURES section of Newsweek by Joshua DuBois
    There are more African-Americans on probation, parole, or in prison today than were slaves in 1850. It is not a crisis of crime. It is a crisis of people being left behind.
    Note: En USA hay mas afroamericanos en la carcel que esclavos en 1850...
  • Andres shared from BYE-BYE, BUTTONS in the NEWSMAKERS section of Newsweek by Nina Strochlic
    At the end of the day, the slightly larger, square-screened Q10 certainly won't have touchscreen users yearning for the keypad days of yore. Besides, in the not-too-distant future, when the next generation of Google Glass comes embedded in your contact lenses, we'll tell our kids about the days when we had to tap commands on our cell-phone screens. "With your fingers?" they'll gasp.
    Note: Ya nadie quiere un Blackberry, aunque extraño el teclado de botones, debo aceptar que es obsoleto :/
  • Andres shared from YOU'RE BEING HACKED in the FEATURES section of Newsweek by Michael Moynihan
    The Jester's techniques have varied over the years. In 2010 after WikiLeaks posted a tranche of classified State Department cables online, he launched a denial of service (DoS) attack—in which a server is flooded with junk data, rendering it unable to respond to legitimate queries—and briefly took the site offline.
    Note: y yo que me quede con la idea que el DOS era un sistema operativo solamente…
