I wish you the same – a satire

I removed my birthday from online accounts. I was successful. New year wishes are here to stay. No way to avoid it. In fact getting bigger and messier by the year. WhatsApp, viber, messenger, sms ( still gets a few) and social media feeds go crazy. I want to 'wish you the same', but alas [...]

Is your phone getting slower ?

There's an ongoing drama between Apple Inc. and iphone users. Users had complained their phones are getting slowed down.

Workplaces and our homes are now intensely complex. It's hard to stay calm and be objective because emotions and residues from the past bounces most of us to get distracted and irritated. Obstacles are a way of life now. To embrace obstacles is the new attitude. I must try hard to 1. Control emotions to [...]

Eminem and Charitha – Music as a platform.

Eminem has released 'Revival', his latest album on December 15th. I am listening to it now, alongside Charitha's album 'Galana Ganga'. I am able to listen to both albums in one app ( Apple Music) by Paying $2.99 per month. I am able to listen to them the moment they release their music. I am [...]

Balancing social media

I went to tweetupSL 7 yesterday. I have missed last 2 years. So many new young faces, and the interactions gave me the flavour of young aspirations and new trends in social media.
