iPhone 5

Sandro T. Rafael: Technology and Qatar Living - Sun, 09/09/2012 - 5:04pm
3 days from now, the new iPhone will be announce. With all the leaks that are circulating, I think there are just some few and minor surprises left, unless those leaks are purposely planted by Apple just to cover up the real thing - which highly unlikely. Are you buying one? Related Items: iPhoneApple

Why don't successful people become really successful?

Sandro T. Rafael: Technology and Qatar Living - Wed, 29/08/2012 - 6:24am
One important explanation is due to what I call "the clarity paradox," which can be summed up in four predictable phases: Phase 1: When we really have clarity of purpose, it leads to success. Phase 2: When we have success, it leads to more options and opportunities. Phase 3: When we have increased options and opportunities, it leads to diffused efforts. Phase 4: Diffused efforts undermine the very clarity that led to our success in the first place. Curiously, and overstating the point in...

Pudding to My Pie

Sandro T. Rafael: Technology and Qatar Living - Mon, 27/08/2012 - 10:56am
With what's going lately with Apple and Samsung - interestingly, Samsung still remain as one of the trusted and dependable partner of Apple. In the new retina iPad and upcoming 13" Retina MacBook Pro - Samsung is doing a great job. With my new Retina MacBook Pro, I'm lucky enough to have a Samsung display and not to have the reported screen issues once you have an LG display. Thanks Samsung for being a delicious pudding to my apple pies. Related Items: AppleSamsungBusinessTechnology

Marco Arment Review of Retina MacBook Pro

Sandro T. Rafael: Technology and Qatar Living - Mon, 27/08/2012 - 8:29am
As a user of new Macbook Pro with Retina Display, I fully agree with Marco's review. This is the best computer I’ve ever used. And I can say that with no hesitation, qualification, or equivocation. Indeed, every time I use other computers, it is like punishing myself and living in an unwanted marriage. And while using my retina mbp, it is like a dream, not so real to me - I feel like I don't deserve this piece of beauty and brain. I need to upgrade myself to be worthy of spending time with...

Apple vs. Samsung and the Future

Sandro T. Rafael: Technology and Qatar Living - Sun, 26/08/2012 - 1:25pm
Samsung was found guilty of infringing on Apple's patent related to: multi-touch gestures, zooming, scroll back, something related to design and icons. Samsung will pay 1.05 billion to Apple, less-than-half of what Apple asked ($2.5 billion to $2.75 billion). With this verdict, I'm sure all Apple competitors (not only Samsung) will try to come up with something new that can differentiate from the iOS devices to avoid similar fate. Like my Nexus 7 and my new iPad, both are rectangle and...

What do I want to do?

Sandro T. Rafael: Technology and Qatar Living - Tue, 17/04/2012 - 10:40am
Gina Trapani's advice: Not knowing what you want to do is a scary place everyone's been in at one time or another. Working toward a particular thing gives you purpose, and when you don't have that, it can feel like you're drifting, directionless, while the rest of the world is speeding by. When you're in this place, try to minimize the insecurity about not knowing what you want. Take comfort in the fact that many people are speeding toward a place they don't really care about because they...
