Mram could one day overthrow hard discs and flash memory

July 23, 2006

BBC says : magnetoresistive random-access memory or Mram could one day overthrow hard discs and flash memory

A couple of weeks ago a company called Freescale announced that it had produced a working Mram chip which can hold four-megabits, that is about half a megabyte.

It is very small compared to the Ram and flash chips on the market, but it is a start.

In fact many companies, including IBM, have been working on the nanotechnology behind Mram for around a decade.

Put simply, Mram stores data magnetically, in the same way a hard drive does. This makes it non-volatile.

Web 2.0 : Social Networking Tool

July 18, 2006

Fast company has an interesting review on Web 2.0 social networking tool and their market valuation., for $580 million last year the acquisition signaled the rebirth of the Internet boom
Facebook, the social networking site for college students has raised $38.2 million

My Thoughts : Social networking tool targeting particular social segment might not work out in future. For instance a student having facebook during graduation and LinkedIn for building business contacts, Bebo for something else…will this feasible in long run? I have one Hi5 account, created a Bebo when a friend requested, left Orkut and but continued using LinkedIn.

I was one of the key designers and developer for which was the first few social networking based tools (though Spoke targets enterprise networking and solutions like SalesForce and others). LinkedIn has targeted professional community successfully.

Friendster couldn’t sustain the success after Myspace arrived, however Myspace had a good strategy in allowing various community co-exist in the same social space. In a single Myspace convergence of various social groups happened. Taking this argument further, many of the social networking tools are definite bubble-burst type.

Powerful Idea?

July 13, 2006

How do you create a product? You have an idea, you are passionate about it, you either invest your time and money to do it or you approach your contacts to know if they will be interested to team up and do it for you.
You venture into finding the right contact and realize that you have spent enough of time “building a team”, that’s when you get impatient and decide to approach some software company who can do it for you.

When you get the cost breakdown, you realize the cost is too high for this idea and look in market if there is already a similar idea in market ;). When you find similar one, you say no this idea is duplicate and it won’t work and you are going to dump the idea. Only if no body has thought this, you decide you will do it!!

Isn’t this a standard pattern to go round and round in search for potential idea? But I differ to say “An idea is not powerful just because it is unique and no body has thought about it but an idea is powerful when similar idea is tried and tested out and the idea you are introducing has “innovative variations” to previous ones and also there is robust business plan to support and execute it to excellence”

Was Google a powerful idea when Sergey and Larry started?? No there were already 10 search engine in market!! But Sergey and Larry introduced that variation “page rank” in search engine which made Google to stand tall among the crowd.

There are similar examples from Richard Branson’s Virgin Group’s approach to adapt new business. I was reading an article/book in which Richard supposedly said that “Virgin group can venture trying out an idea as long as there is robust business plan for the same”. Virgin group’s success in various venture definitely echo this.

We at Adipt get few customers coming to us to develop the idea, some potential entrepreneurs drop on the way and some carry on holding “just the idea”. However we have made it a principle that we guide our customer to evolve the business plan and bring success to them.

Do you think any idea should be tried?
