Fear? No! Pleasure of Firefox!

       I am a girl who don’t like to try new things, perhaps because I am always afraid of a failure after trying. Contrary to me, my younger sister just likes new things very much. Therefore, every time when we go to restaurant, I just choose the same food as usual again and again, but my little sister doesn’t. Pointing the menu, she always kept saying excitedly, “this one looks so tasty! It must be delicious since I have almost felt the smell, which I cannot wait to try.” Seeing her pleased impression after the meals, I have the impulse of changing but still fear and not have enough courage.

    The Firefox, seems to be one of the look-good new dish in my eyes, I was really nerves at first. Going to our group blog, I saw that almost every girl writes and researches about it. I was so curious about whether it really gives us a lot of fun.

     With this question, I installed Firefox at once and went to have a look. After doing so, I was suggested to add several add-ons.

( Hesitating when I was facing with so many different add-ons. ) Continue reading

How To Buy Knowledge

Yesterday, I went to the Karneval der Kulturen with my best friend. She is studying BioChemistry and I am always wondering how smart she can be to study something which is that complex. (Ö_Ö)

Naturally, we always talk about interesting topics which would be of interest for A Girl’s Business and we stumbled over ‘Wolfram׀Alpha’, which is described by founder Dr. Stephen Wolfram  as a “knowledge engine that computes answers to questions”.

For example, typing in “GDP of France versus Britain” the result will be a comparison with charts and other figures of the two countries’ GDP . You can write down huge mathematical formulas and in the end get not only the solution but also a graph which is showing the root. However, when you ask about the best sci-fi movie in history it will give you a table with the percentage of people having the surname ‘Best’ in America.

Now in spite of that, it is safe to say, that Wolfram׀Alpha is awesome, especially since it was voted the greatest computer innovation of 2009 by Popular Science.

What makes Wolfram Alpha interesting for businesses? Continue reading

Android@Home – A profitable Business Idea?

Maybe you’ve read my last blog post where I explained what Android@Home is and how one can use it. Today I want to continue with that topic, but instead of just explaining what Android@Home is, I would like to focus on the business aspect, because I wonder what the main idea is? Is it clever to publish such a big project, although other companies already failed? How can companies profit from Android@Home? What if Google sells the collection of personal information to other companies in order to make profit?

Are you curious now? Then let’s take a look at what I found out.

The Future Of Reality

As you might know, I wrote my last blog post about augmented reality and the new options it may hold for customers to enjoy and experience new technical discoveries, but then I noticed that I had written a lot about the way augmented reality works, but nothing about possible business ideas.

That I presented to you Layar and Total Immersion was only the beginning in a broad field of new companies and new ways of making money with techniques of augmented reality, so I decided to write an entry to give people a first idea of what to do when wanting to make money with augmented reality.

 So how can one’s company use this hot new technology to make money? Is augmented reality really the future of advertisement? And will augmented reality really be implemented in our daily life?

Let’s find out, shall we?
