Technology on the Move #TimeToTransform

Swimming with Piranhas, makes me hungry
I am a Telecom Professional and am in business of making technologies a "translated in to reality, dream" for every Indian. You may wonder how? No, no I am no Bill Gates who creates "windows" to the computing world but I am a product manager cum solution architect who has been working in a sector that builds and facilitates Internet and telephony. What Businesses, what housewives and what layman and student. Everyone is latched to data/Internet n needs it on the go, more the merrier.

From ABCD i.e. Aaya, bai, Carpenter, driver to Large corporate, vouch by telecom. If Internet does not work for an hour, half the generation starts feeling disabled, having hands to pick the food but no food for "data snacking". Same thing happens when your device goes out of service even though fir few hours or if you are travelling and cannot carry your devices as they are heavy to carry. After all, telecom provides Internet and Voice to every one this country, wiring the metros to remote villages, understanding and translating their needs via plugging their smart devices with essential life and blood i.e. voice and data. And my tryst with it taught me that how India loves its computing devices and how every one is 'attached' to them, on the move, on the go.

This realization makes me humble. I am humbled by the new age innovations that is hitting in the market every day, every hour and with change in every binary, processor and perceived translated benefit that reaches to end user. I am in business of wiring networks rather I must say wiring lives and how certain devices have changed human's need, drastically from what was never thought before to what is being available today.

Smart devices swims the water for me and ensure that I must swim with Piranhas to kindle my own appetite. 

I am hooked on to the technology
Earlier, my mornings will start with hands folded in soft prayer but nowadays, before my morning could start, my hands will look out for my smart devices like cellphone and tablets and my laptop. I may leave hungry from my home but men, I would not dare to step out without a fully fed [read battery charged] computing device. I am a technology freak! I love to explore different things that my phone, laptop, my tablet can do. And you know the best thing about this relation? The more I use, the more attached I get. Some call it addiction but I call it necessity.

What keeps me hooked?
Well is no single thing. From games to photo apps to messaging to browsing, to organizing and yes off course, blogging! Did I missed saying- staying updated on current affairs and catching up with friends who stay home n abroad. 

I am a blogger and love browsing the world wide web. If I am not ticking tocking my device for my office mails, escalations, team communications, I am rather trying out a new handset, reviewing a new tablets using self experience mode, playing games like Temple run [Ah they are such a good time pass when u r travelling], clicking images for my instagram and least, listening music.

I am a Telecommuter. I do not commute with out my smart device. Sometime I carry 3 with me. No no..I am not part of network experience team but these days I am managing VIP and High Value customers for my company which includes film celebrities, designers, industrialist, astrologers, politicians, sportsmen, bankers and many more. Some of them are mothers, wives, public figures, fathers, sons, career woman, home makers, star wives and with each if them and the roles they play, I play the similar roles for others and self.

Often I am device evangelist for my friends, colleagues helping them with right devices for their needs and upgrades, then why not use that skill and extend to my clientele? And to do that, I must keep tab on new products in markets, new apps, new gadgets.

ASUS Transformer T100
So my passion for new device, brought me to ASUS T100. It reads - a 2 in 1 Ultra portable laptop with 10 inch tablet. 

That indeed caught my fancy and gave me some ideas.

So basically it is a laptop cum tablet, read "Handy" and "on the go" device that a lot of us have been looking for, from so long. Yup we all are "laptop stacaoting" generation. We do not believe in hurling Machine guns but computers that folded in to laptops, which further envisaged into tablets, note pads and smart devices of all kind. We are basically nerds who are so much in awe of technology, computing devices and off course "Internet Frenzy". And we love being such nerds.

The Nerd and their confused excuses
Being Nerd is the syndrome wherein you found yourself, forever hooked to your phone or laptop or both. So much to do and so little time you see. And we nerds hate being kept away from our life support, off course second to Oxygen, Our computing devices. How much can we carry them with us but Alas, they are bulky.

Excuse no 2: All my data is saved on my laptop, now I cannot keep transferring them to my tablet whole time.

Excuse no 3: I hate small screens of cellphones. I so much love my laptops but they are bulky. [not again sic]

Excuse no 4: I like Tablets but sometime I wish they come with real Qwerty keyboards. I mean how long can you type using touchscreen? Why to buy additional docking station? Ahh too many additional gadgets. I am better off my laptop.

Excuse no 5: I am confused that whether I shall go for a new laptop or a new tablet? Laptop or a tablet? Gosh I wish, I had both.

Sigh they are the common dilemma that a usual buyer goes through. And it is not as simple as it sounds.

Generation, it is #timetotransform and switch to a device that is a convergence of both. Introducing- ASUS Transformer T100.
