Finally, I get my hands on the new Macbook Pro. It's true what people say, once you go mac you'll never go back to any other OS again. Each and every individual OS has it's advantages and disadvantages and unlike most people, I'm not going to bitch about Windows just because I'm not using it anymore. To be honest I have been using Windows and Linux for so long I have a thing for these two OSs' as well. Anyways once again "FINALLY!" (I've been saying that everyday ever since I got my hands on this Macbook Pro). Thank you Steve Jobs.

I get this question a lot – what good do a website does for a company? I wouldn’t hang back to say it’s as important as having a company phone line. It’s obvious that there are numerous advantages for your business to be visible online. Having a professionally developed website makes your company stand out its competition and can also act as an online hub to distribute information about your products and services and display your portfolio 24/7 to anywhere in the world.
You can also improve your company's marketing strategies. Because your website displays and distributes everything you have to offer, placing your company's web address on everything that comes into contact with your target clients is a great way to improve your marketing. Here are some simple practices used by successful organizations. Use your company web address on:
- Promotional items such as Pens, Calendars, Key Chains, etc.
- On letterheads, Sales receipts, Printed Advertisements
- Company on hold phone systems or email signature line.
- Social Media such as Facebook and twitter.
Your website is a multimedia sales tool which can be used to directly interact with clients online. How about an online shop? You can also provide application forms, media kits, company policies and news updates. The advantages and things you can do are endless.
So I believe it’s better to ask yourself “why the heck haven’t I thought of having a company website?” and get started with it.

Street accidents in Maldives are rising day by day, concerning serious injuries and even in most cases death. I’ve seen a couple of awareness videos’ on local TV channels trying to deliver the message “Speed thrills but also kills”. These videos are for a good cause but the concepts and message is not executed well. This simple “Embrace Life” awareness video I found on YouTube executed the message well. The video was simple and very interesting to watch. Maybe someone should come up with something interesting like this. But yes, just making a video want stop these stupid careless accidents.

About.me is a custom splash screen with personal analytics dashboard and it’s still in private beta. In spite of this they’re sending out invites daily. You can get lucky and reserve your name (e.g http://about.me/yourname). You can also add links to your Facebook, Twitter, Blog, etc profiles to it.

This is just my view on learning web design and development. There are plenty of excellent free tutorials on the web. Learn the basics of PHP/MySQL (or your preferred scripting language) and download an Open Source CMS such as WordPress or Drupal. Jumping into such open source projects will make a huge difference. There's a huge community of developers contributing to these projects and will help out with your questions. And yes of cause, Google is always there with most of the answers.
