"Success Seems to be a matter of hanging on, after others have let go."-William Feather

  A word you will always here all the time being used. It is the difference between winning and losing measured by a lifetime of accomplishments. But what really defines a man’s potential of success? Is it the car he drives, the lifestyle he lives or just another ideal he’s overcome the odds that no one else has? Success has been defined as, the achievement of something desired, planned, or attempted, not what assets you have. When looking at all the great people in life who graduated college it is success because they determined their minds to do something greater that they had never done before. Bill Gates once said, “Its fine to celebrate success but it is more important to heed the lessons of failure.” When accomplishing your goal you become well off satisfied and comfortable with whom you are and sometimes get in the comfort zone helping learn from that is the failure which by far is your trial and error of being more successful and challenging yourself more. The greatest of these is Nelson Mandela

                  who didn’t have the wealth nor the achievement but, the success of South Africa being free from apartheid. After fleeing from is parents arranged marriage he fled to Johannesburg where his journey began. Finishing his bachelors he enrolls in the African National Congress and eventually finds the ANC Youth League with Anton Lembede, AP Mda, Oliver Tambo and Walter Sisulu to overthrow apartheid. Later in 1956 he becomes arrested and charged with high treason and is latter sentenced to life in Prison in the summer 1964. After 27 years he is released in 1990 and votes in 1994. What was his success?  Well it sure wasn’t money, but South Africa being One Nation free from apartheid. After many pleas for him to be free and not parade for freedom, after denying all those opportunities to be free, he achieved what others would call freedom, success. Apartheid free, and unity between all people he accomplished what others rarely called a feet of victory, success. Years later the first world cup was held in Johanesburg, South Africa with every country, Nation, and Tongues playing for the FIFA World cup. “Madiba,” as the local South African’s called him did what few could do leaving a Legacy of great Success. So what is it that you define as success? For it comes to those who want it more and to those that will be willing to work hard to achieve it!!

Flex Whattt?

Photo: Flex watches
Watches, you name it they are the type of things that tell you time and make you look good in that suit.
well some do and some don't my point is that they are still awesome. If you've ever seen "The Real World" early on this season then you know of  you Nate. The typical college Frat boy who is usually known on campus for nothing more than being a Frat. That all change when Nate began having the passion to do something more than just doing business. In his mind he envisioned of doing more than just work but giving back with a reason and so Flex was born. In a small bar Nate met up with  Trevor Jones and Travis Lubinsky to begin Flex. based in San Diego,California, Flex has not just grown to become a typical watch company but a hierarchy in fashion that gives back. The moto, "10 colors | 10 charities | 10 percent." Each watch has a different meaning,The company sells 10 different color watches each representing 10 different charities that gain 10 percent of the company’s net profits for various causes that include breast cancer, suicide prevention and Hurricane Katrina survivors, among others."Their most important goal is to raise awareness for the charities they are paired up with. The company organizes local events and national events, gets their products out to local retailers, and relies on campus representatives to spread the word,” Alyssa Avallone, the Drexel University representative for Flex Watches, said.“Flex watches are silicone watches with interchangeable faces and bands,” Avallone said. The colors, which include orange, black, green, etc., are bright and vibrant in order to grab the attention of others. This opens up the opportunity to explain that each watch stands for a good cause and not just a fashionable accessory.
If you decide to purchase the blue watch, that particular color is associated with Nika Water. According to the Flex Watches website, “Nika Water strives to end the cycle of poverty and create awareness and knowledge to get people involved in bringing clean water to poverty-stricken countries (the Triangle).”
  As the company continues it still strives to raise awareness to areas in life that need not to be ignored so giving back, while helping others.

Elon Musk

"The online banker of EBay"

    If you've ever bought anything online and have been redirected to pay pal know that the person who took your credit card and wont give it back is Ellon Mask. Elon Mask was born South Africa and became a millionaire in his late twenties by selling a start up company like Pay pal and many others for more than  $1.5 billion in stock to EBay. Musk ventured of in Space Exploration  Technology Corp. (Space X) in 2002 and co founder of Tesla auto motives 2003. He was recently crowned by Time's most influential man of 2013.
 Mark Seliger for TIME-Image
Richard Branson (owner of Virgin airline founder of Virgin Mobile) said,"Whatever skeptics have said can’t be done, Elon has gone out and made real. Remember in the 1990s, when we would call strangers and give them our credit-card numbers? Elon dreamed up a little thing called Pay Pal. His Tesla Motors and Solar City companies are making a clean, renewable-energy future a reality. It’s a paradox that Elon is working to improve our planet at the same time he’s building spacecraft to help us leave it. But true vision is binocular — and Elon Musk is clearly a man who can see many things at once"(branson Times100). Its clearly that he has become the next Iconic figure in inventions but the most recent invention is quite beyond belief. In August 2013, Musk proposed an idea to make a train that goes from San Francisco to Los Angela's in 35 minutes top reaching speeds over  700 mph.
The proposed Hyperloop high-speed transport system would ferry passengers between Los Angeles and San Francisco in about 30 minutes, according to entrepreneur Elon Musk. This sketch shows what a passenger capsule might look like.

Capsules would move between the two cities through a network of elevated, pressurized tubes, built roughly parallel to California's I-5 freeway. For longer cross-country trips, however, Musk believes air travel will remain more efficient.

As envisioned by Musk, passengers would travel more than 700 mph through the steel tubes, aided by anti-friction air pressure.

   The California High- Speed Rail Authority Chairman Dan Richard has stated that he will show Musk "what it really takes to build a project in California" if the Hyper-loop project begins to gain momentum. The plan would take seven to ten years to make and ready for use. With an an estimated cost of $6 billion, his plan is still long underway.

The Future Of Internet

One word that can sum up the Internet is now what makes the greatest impact in the world. How the Internet has revolutionized the world today is incredible. From business, schools, governments you name its there and still going its still going. What you can say today is that everyday function of the world cannot make it without Internet for what so ever reason.  A lot of people are Now wondering what is the Next step since it has been on upgrade about Internet in the last decade except revolutionizing it? well Since the Age of the Tech Wars began back between IBM, Apple, and Microsoft, it seams that Apple has yet held there-crown this whole week . As I was reading the news of Flipboard today, an Interesting article caught my eye and yes, it had to do with Apple.

It read,"For five years, researchers have toiled over an obscure bit of fundamental Internet infrastructure that promises to make the connections to our mobile devices faster and more reliable"(quartz2013). The thing is that all this advancement is just becoming a rival war within companies who are just trying to become number one in the tech industries. Anyway, the"Multi-path TCP allows your phone to send data by whatever way it’s connected to the Internet, whether that’s Wi-Fi, 3G or Ethernet (say, if it were running on a laptop connected to the Internet via a cable). And if you want to activate it, says one of the researchers who built multi-path TCP, you have only to use Apple’s voice command software, Siri"(quartz). Only problem is that Apple is the only company that has made such technology open for the public market. Compared with Html 5 (which is the newest version for programmers) data has shown sometimes in consistent with speed. Whether 3G or 4G nobody has quite yet realized the opportunity of taking things to the next step when Internet could be with mobile data. Ever download an app and all of a sudden the network drop and all your left with is Network error? Well, TCP solves that issue not network drop but speed in way of faster download fewer Network errors.

What is the Best: Apple vs Samsung?

As we all know the heat between apple and Samsung has never became more sweeter. Apple recently released there new ios 7 software which is far more cunning than the previous models.(below)
                    Apple 5s with IOS 7
The design while is more of a fashion statement than anything else but similar to Google's operating system Jellybean 4.3 for android and smartphone. (Below)

After using Apple's ios system I found out that it had the same similarity to that of Samsung's.  Quit simple but easy to use for the most part, IOS 7 has surely brought the world to there knees bringing its stunning software to life. From key features ranging from; up to date notifications of the current New York Stock exchange stats, to the notifications of messages, missed calls, and appointments you have, it brings sexy back to software. You might may even say it has outdone Siri in all of its major functions. Same goes for the Samsungs Jellybean 4.3, it has the same compact functions as IOS 7 but, is quite more brilliant in its way due to the simplicity that it understands the owner in a realistic way. From your facebook  update, to the local events happening in your area it can surely do them all. Both are two compact software's who are large rivals when it comes to their devices but, the real Question is which one to choose from? IOS 7 or Google Jellybean 4.3? You decide.
