Sunday Chatter – 10/4

5 Steps To Keeping Your (Busy) Life In Harmony

As a frequent reader of The Huffington Post, I often find articles that relate to business or Internet marketing, either directly or indirectly. One that I stumbled on this week touches on 5 steps you can take to attain your personal, or business goals. Many of the tips relate to making yourself financially stable and surpassing your own expectations. The article is very motivational and gave me an immediate boost right after reading it, like I had to go and start a new project or something. It sort of resembled watching one of Gary Vaynerchuk’s videos, but in text format.

Google Wave Invites Sent Out

The general population on the Interwebs was obsessing over Google Wave this week, which is Google’s new service that lets you chat, share photos, documents and socialize with your contacts all in one place. The hype began earlier this week when invites starting being sent out to beta testers, developers, VIPs, etc. Of course with anything Google does, it becomes a big deal. Invites started popping up on eBay for a few thousand dollars before being taken down for violating both eBay’s and Google’s terms of service. There was a similar buzz when Gmail first opened up to private beta users. Invites for that service were being exchanged for all kinds of things online, and also appeared on eBay. Wait a few months and Wave will be open to everybody. As of right now, it doesn’t sound too exciting and I’m sure we’ll be just fine without it for a little while longer. The scary part for me though, is having all of your data and information in one place, which you would probably regret if your Wave account was disabled for whatever reason.

Microsoft Courier vs. Apple Tablet

It’s been a stressful week for both Microsoft and Apple as they try to contain the leaked stories and photos of their rumoured new mobile computing devices. Microsoft had video of its Courier device posted, and renderings of the Tablet showed up at around the same time. After looking at both, the Tablet is like a big iPhone or iPod Touch that generally allows you to do everything you can now on the respective devices, but on a larger scale. The Courier is a bit different and displays more like an open book, with a split screen. I’m not particularly fond of the layout, but I’m open to learning more about both devices before making a decision on which one I’d rather have.

    haven’t heard much chatter on Google Wave since the initial chatter of “the invites were out”. You know anyone that has gotten on and posted about it?

    Funny you mention that. I just received an invite last night from a friend and have been playing around with it a bit. Still trying to figure everything out.

    Unfortunately, I don’t have any invites of my own to give out.
