Google Drive

The buzz is that….

Google is driving Google Drive, oh, not on the streets of Paris, indeed on the clouds.
Yes, you heard right, as soon in put query “drive” in Google Search Engine, the suggestion tool shown me drive.google.com in drop down at No 3, needless to say I followed the link and I was greeted by Google Drive page, where in the extreme top right is a sign in button. I am a google user since a decade or more and so I sign using my google id which drive to the next window saying “your drive is not ready yet, we will inform you in your mail once it get ready” so I am waiting for my new google drive.


What I will get is 5GB of free storage, that means enough to keep articles in rtf format for at least one year from now, sufficient for me. However if you are a business photographer for example, and need more space, you can go for a paid version and google drive will offer 25 GB storage.

At first look it seems, using Google Drive is easy as attaching an email or using a face book account. The people who are already Google Docs user will find it easy to use, however for new users I will personally say, do some hit and try with google docs if you have never used docs before, this will develop an understanding in you how to use Google Drive.

Trust matters, in past 10 years of day and night internet uses I never found any big flaw in google products even in Beta stage. Storing your data in Google Drive means giving access to Google to your important files and information; however they are highly professional and you can believe on them same as you believe on your banker. What to store and what not to store is completely your choice.

Here let me draw a fine line between what to store and what not to store on a Google Drive.

We all do banking, concerned bankers always knows how may $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ we have in our bank account. Do any of ever share information like ************* with a banker NO.

Same is true with Google Drive. Hope you understand well what I mean exactly.

Signing up for google drive is as easy as 1,2,3.

If you already have a google id you can sign in with the same.

Just logon to http://drive.google.com

One my google drive ready I will update you through this blog how to use google drive and its different aspects.

10 rules of good parenting

The term parenting sends a shiver down the spine  especially if you live in a nuclear family and going to become a parent; father, mother or guardian. Parenting is not only about raising kids, feeding and sending to school. Indeed parenting is about overall development of a child. Personally I believe, if you do not have kids to raise then too being a grown up adult you are  parenting neighborhood kids in one way or the other.  Kids learn better from surroundings.  Your persona is a reflection of your parents and you are going to transfer that persona to your own kids and the kids near you.

Excellence vs Perfection

There is huge confusion between excellence and perfection. Both are rewarding but...
Perfection has limitations, you can not make anything perfect above 100 marks. This is where either you beat the competition or get beaten. Normally both happens. Excellence is about achieving 100%. You can achieve 100 marks in a given task at that point you may argue that here I achieved full percentage. But analogy says, you have achieved it about the task and not around the task. When you strive to achieve around the task there is no upper limit. For example an student may get 100 out of 100 marks in a given examination does that mean he / she 100 perfect in all those topics around what questions were asked or as that employ that there is no one out there in the world who knows better than the student who have faced an examination. This is why governments take Essay test before selecting you for a given post.
In companies awards are given to best employees do you know why? So other employees try b…

Internet Cafe
If you happen to live in a town preferably not a major city Internet cafe could be one option. In major cities high end smartphones are reaching to every palm but in small places they are still a dream gadget for many. Plus in rural areas mobile internet is not very fast. Cable Internet is way better than mobile. You will get customers. Go in your nearest marketplace or search online market like amazon etc, get some second hand computers, a quality printer and ready to go. Do not invest fancy things buy second furniture, and find a place on cheap rental.
