One of the rules of marketing is to promote goods, services, or ideas.

The marketing concept as we know it did not always exist. It has evolved over the years. The value created in the process is when marketing makes a good service available where the consumer wants it. The number one priority is to produce a good to keep up with demand. One definition of marketing is a group of interrelated activities designed to identify consumer needs and develop, distribute, promote, and price goods and services to satisfy these needs. Buying and selling, are activities that relay products to their intended users. Each consumer buys for his or her personal use or needs, while other parties must perform buying functions that lead up to the final sale.

Marketing has value to both businesses and consumers. The customer and the customer’s needs come first.

Tavis Smiley of ‘PBS’ boasted of ‘Self-Publication’ of all his books and media material. So it should be obvious that he is a proponent of self-publication. This practice allows the author true ‘authorship’ and ownership – ‘Sole Propriety’ of his or her material. Selfie Renditions are today’s norm for many authors and writers. The wide open free range of the Internet allows for such activity without the reigns of publishing house approval especially if you are of the so-called underprivileged section of the universe. People/Authors who are well-to-do have published their own materials almost forever without the approval of publishing professionals worldwide. “Starving Artists” are almost always seeking the backing of promoters, publishers, editors, and silent partners to market their wares in the quest for publicity and profitability.

 “Self-Promotion is essential to the self-published author as much as it is to conventional authors who are promoted by their publishers.”

Many authors of yesteryear were basically self-published. They didn’t have a real choice in the matter. There wasn’t money to pay professional printers to publish and promote their messages. William Still and many other self-educated pioneers did “Selfies” to get the word out to the community. Many “Free-Press” operations were self-published authors and promoters in their own right. They got the word out without the generalization of professional printers, publishers, or promoters – they did it themselves. Many of these “Grass-Root” groups did have some equipment that aided in their publishing endeavors. Others simply relied on supporters who had the know-how. Either way, the word got out to the intended audiences – and they did it their way.

Within the world of information technology / computer science, the structures, formats, platforms, applications, hardware, and/or vendors are service oriented architecture based programming. The programming is designed to meet the needs and/or offer some type of business service. Be it entertainment, news media or query data. Information and the business of information apply. Technical skill sets include knowledge and ability to use, the process, practices, techniques, and tools of the specialty area of software/hardware expertise.

“You do not need to have a degree in IT or BI to be successful in IT, but you do need to have an interest and an aptitude for math and logic. In fact, many if not most of the people that I have worked with as application programmers, software engineers, database administrators and systems analyst do not have computer science degrees.

Many either minored in CS (like me), have degrees in engineering or life sciences. In most cases, opportunities are given based on skill level and not educational background.”

Volume 2 of Technical and Career-Minded Data and Information for the Tech-Starved learning learner… Whereas, on the twenty-second day of September, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-two, a proclamation was issued by the President of the United States. “This is a command or instruction for everyone; in return for the greatest blessings and the greatest amount of the grace.” The Census Bureau reported that 43.6 million people lived in and or below the poverty level – 14.3% is the latest recording. I believe it’s much worse than that. “The Great Recession is officially over!” Haven’t you heard the good news? The American populace is suffering in the worst financial crisis since the “Great Depression.” It’s simply amazing how someone or some entity is constantly trying to sell you and me something. This contribution is worth the while…A must have edition to your library. A timeless tool for the young and not so young – Man, Woman, and Computer!

“Hallow” contains several short stories of the occult, science fiction, English lit, and the macabre… “Demon’s Throat” is a thriller that will take you to the edge of your seat with a twist that only a woman could love – maybe a man or two as well. This story has never before been seen or released anywhere else…

“They (the machines) were dependent on solar power. It was believed they would be unable to survive without an energy source as abundant as the sun.” “What is control?” “No one cares how it works, as long as it works!” The tribes of Judah, Benjamin, and Levi were forced out of the Land of Israel around 70 AD. This was due to the Hebrew-Roman wars that resulted in the deaths of thousands of Black Hebrew Israelites. Primarily women, men, and children were slaughtered by an over powering Army of Roman soldiers and conscripts in their Empire domain. The remnant of Judah, Benjamin, and Levi fled primarily to West Africa to escape death and prosecution around 70 AD.

“So you’re telling me is all we needed is a ‘C-4’ pack and a couple of whirly-bird yahoos to dispose of this beast, is that right Mr. Agent?” Glenn wasn’t even looking at the man. He was looking at the hole and burn scene while his gazing glances took his focused view to the ledge above. The bomb exploded with a thunderous Earth trembling boom… The flash and whoosh of the after affect caused the gas cloud to evaporate. The heat from the blast cooked the pavement, the rocks, the foliage and trees, the air and everything in a circle of about fifty-five to sixty feet. The blast and burn was a perfect circumference – a perfect and complete circle. Albeit, the blast erupted and expired as planned by the security team, there was no target. It was utterly and completely gone. They couldn’t find anything, not one bone or hair sample.

A National Guard chopper swung in overhead. It carried a large satchel. The bag contained explosives…C-4 Plastique. The bomb was much like the one used on the ‘MOVE Compound.’ Move harassed and demonized an entire community in West Philadelphia. Prior to Osage Avenue, the city had a running gun battle with MOVE when the organization occupied a house and mini-fort in ‘Powelten Village,’ also in West Philly, not very far from Osage Avenue. A cop was killed and many of the MOVE members went to jail. The authorities blew up and burned an entire neighborhood, killing several men, women, and children in the offensive assault on the building the group occupied on Osage Avenue. The tragic incident occurred under the administration of a very well-liked mayor, a few decades ago. The order went out to “Blow His Ass to Smithereens!”

“Well Dr. Caldwell, what do you think is wrong?” “I’m not sure… I might need to do a more thorough investigation to the problem at hand.” “Doc, can you please tell me what the nature of the problem is…?” “I don’t know.” “But Doc, what do you know?” “The one thing that I do know is…I don’t know. Do you know how many people are willing to admit they don’t know something?” “No Doc, how many?” “I don’t know.”

Many people on the planet profess to know just about everything.

There are those who know it all. There are those who know absolutely nothing but boast to the contrary. Haven’t you met people who know everything about anything and everything about everybody? Sure you have… You’ve wished that they would shut the hell up and be quiet. You’ve wished for certain persons to go away or learn to shut their mouths before they speak… Even better still, just shut your mouth and don’t say anything at all to anybody. I want to learn something!

This author was encouraged and influenced by many reputable artists and authors. But none so much as the ‘Self-Published’ afficianados. So if you are considering publishing an article or book, I would encourage you to do all the necessary research and practice along with a practical observance of others before you and publish, publish, and publish some more.

Conventional publishing as opposed to ‘SELFIES?’

 

You be the judge…

 Now Go For It!

 Heartfeather on Amazon: 
Open Up Your Mind!!!

 If you have been searching for answers in your life and you want to be a grounded person, I highly recommend this book. It is a fast read.

 “The Spirit of The Soul and The Death of Morals”: Whence comest thou?

 It will make you want to learn more, and this is a good thing. It will expand your mind, and don’t we all need this; or would you rather turn on The Bachelorette, or one of those senseless gossip shows.

Are you tired of all the hypocrisy? Where is the caring, and where has morality gone? Are you questioning your faith? Are you curious and yet confused about other religions? When is the last time you read something and really felt those words touch your soul? If you have experienced any of the above, The Spirit of the Soul, and the Death of Morals is a must read. It will answer many of your questions about religions, faith, traditions, and cultures.

“Fairmount”: Terror In The Park’

 My goodness, Mr. Gregory Boulware, your back cover blurb doesn’t prepare us for the interior. Thank you – and your author photo is beautiful also.

Mr. Boulware is an excellent storyteller and, with definite twists and turns, this book is not for the faint hearted. Gruesome and grizzly, but at the same time highly readable, at no time does the story fall flat. I had a couple of problems with quote marks/direct speech, but in no way does that detract from a very readable story. Gregory’s interview at the end is excellent and gives added insight into the author’s abilities.

Very well done, Gregory. Here’s wishing you success with many more.

‘A Bite Of The Apple’

Contemplation

Contemplation


By
Gregory V. Boulware

Apple computers have frequently been criticized for putting design over function. Is their product designed to meet the needs of the masses? Which is a better buy, the proprietary schematic or one that is interchangeable?

The IT Community has big issues with Apples’ stance on covert and proprietary practices in the world of technology. One gripe about the product has IT decision makers in a survey, saying “This is an ergonomic flaw that reveals a preference.” They say Apple likes form over function. The iMac connectors on the rear of the machines are designed and/or decided by anal retention.

Your existing customers already know, like, and trust you. This gives you the technology, tools, and retention marketing expertise to increase their immediate and long term expenditures within your company. Every day, you focus on increasing total customer lifetime value and profitability by retaining your customers longer and increasing the frequency of their purchases, right? Apple’s practices as it relates to IT’s position, one has to wonder if Apple is indeed on the side of technology or profitability.

A second criticism reflected by the survey revealed Apple being held up as a leading innovator. The reality of it tends to refine existing ideas that have already been invented. Apple didn’t invent the MP3 Music Player, The Smartphone, or the Tablet computer. However, from niche to market, it made the breakthrough device that took those products to homes, hands, and the pockets of consumers worldwide.

Does success make its’ own argument? Do not be surprised of more enterprising and acceptance leads to CIO’s bending and ear or two and making choices that benefit IT. Apple also didn’t invent the USB port. It did, albeit, adopt and incorporate it into the family as a universal interface when few PCs used USB. So that means, as proprietary as Apple product are, they did lend a helping hand in jump-starting the widespread adoption of those devices;the convenient and desirable tech toys.

“Inflection Point,” according to Apple, means success. Attention from IT management, at the very least, thinks it’s worth a closer look. (One possible meaning: A point on a curve at which the curvature changes from convex to concave or vice versa, also called flex point, point of inflection). Regardless of whether they’re talking about delivering digital music, connecting an online store to a brick-and-mortar retail presence, developing a unibody laptop chassis, driving ubiquitous Wi-Fi or, innovating smartphones and tablets, Apple has either been impossibly lucky or has managed to repeatedly anticipate and advance transformational technology trends, according to a report in the InformationWeek Magazine’s January 28, 2013 edition. Richard Hoffman described several scenarios surrounding the Apple Outlook Survey by InformationWeek. The article focused on more than 90% of 331 IT decision-makers who support iPhones and iPads or have plans in the making that do. The report says more than 80% support or plan to support Mac laptops and desktops. Furthermore, there’s reason to believe IT would like nothing more than to go back to the days of top-down hardware purchasing.

Hoffman reports that i-devices are here to stay. But enterprise support is weak and IT is calling for ways to manage them more efficiently and securely.

The kind of change the survey represents can’t be overstated. Many IT pros remember, not that long ago, Apples’ presence in the enterprise outside of a few markets, was negligible. One respondent said “Apple products are nice, but they are not really suited to the enterprise because we have no means of ensuring their security. Apple is slow to release security updates for known exploits. Their products are fine for home use and small business, but they have an outdated approach to security that is not acceptable.” The respondent continued on with his opinion, “If they do not make the necessary implementations, they will not be an IT enterprise ‘go-to’ solution. One example is when Apple abruptly killed its well-regarded Xserve Rack-Mount Server Line two years ago; IT pros saw it as one more bit of proof. The bottom line is that Apple is not a reliable partner.” In short, IT Pros aren’t enthusiastic about having Apple gear in their data center.

The gripes continued to flow with yet another IT beef. It appears that Apple is abandoning its long term customers. They have embraced an effort to jump into the mobile and tablet market with all available hands and feet. A ‘Higher Educational Coordinator’ announced a major change in their long-term plans for hardware and software because of the abandonment. The coordinator stresses a fact labeling Apple’s previous offerings as amateurish when benchmarked with the iOS system.
On record, Macs running OS x tends to operate in a near perfectly stable service than their counterparts. Its stability has a unique advantage in both its hardware and software operations. Apples ‘Multiboot’ utility and virtualization applications allow you to run Windows via parallels and VMware’s fusion at full speed. The excellent compatibility allows Linux to similarly run as well.
Apple feels their proprietary standards allows for a less chaotic environment in terms of compatibility of drivers and components.

Hoffman also reports that Macs are less likely to be infected with malware or to need time consuming repair of OS re-installations that Windows devices require. The report continues to say that it is arguable how much of the security is due to architectural and implementation decisions. The company refuses to undercut its margins. They stand firm in their belief – the product is worth it.

IT organizations say if they would make their schematics and repair information more accessible, the expensive point of pain could be cured. An Onsight Services and IT Consultant chimed in with his two cents. “They should change to standard screws and closures to make repairing an out-of-warranty item possible for re-furbishing – especially for power users.” The consultant continued to say it would add great value and show that they care how long their products remain in the marketplace. Christopher Grande said, “When I see a 20 year old Volvo or a 10 year old Dell, that’s a tremendous selling point – that’s stabilization.”

Apple has used a great deal of it revenue to construct a well-oiled, fine-tuned, marketable enterprise designed to deliver top-quality products to tech enthusiasts at large. Apple has made mistakes along the way. One example was its sub-standard iPhone maps app and a faux pas that have led to complaints about some iPhone app developers improperly collecting users’ address book information. But…reports have been recorded to reflect most of Apples’ data points to an extremely well run operation.

Apple is reported to be putting more effect into business user marketing. The survey suggests that Macs and iDevices are making their way into the enterprise arena because IT managers, not users, like them, according to a poll of 244 end users. Many other users of IT organizations say the cost of Apple stuff is to expensive. They also say the value of the product is rated between poor and fair, the latter value at fair.

End user data suggests the product as good and excellent on ease of use, design, and reliability.

20% of Apples’ revenues have dropped while maintaining a solid position in Macintosh sales. Dell was down by 16.5%, the PC by 2.1%, and Acers’ by 21.6%. Apple doesn’t rule the school in cooling strategies for small network and IT spaces, regardless of its sales standings. Every kilowatt of electricity consumed by the IT equipment creates a kilowatt of heat that must be removed from the space to maintain uptime. It almost makes one wonder why it’s no coincidence that Apples’ interest in data center hardware waned just as the iPhone began to gain popularity over the Mac.

Many network closets and other small IT spaces were never designed to house IT or networking equipment. These spaces are often cooled by building HVAC systems and can accommodate low density deployments in small IT spaces.
(Ex.): power levels below 700 watts, passive venting (appropriately placing holes of vents to the ambient air) is effective for critical closets. An air fan-assisted venting is recommended for power levels between 700 and 2,000 watts of power.

When a UPS (uninterruptible power supply, a power supply that includes a battery to maintain power in the event of a power outage. Typically, a UPS keeps a computer running for several minutes after a power outage, enabling you to save data that is in RAM and shut down the computer gracefully) is installed in the closet, the IT equipment will continue to create heat during a power outage. The cooling system therefore, will need to continue to operate. If the runtime is more than 10 minutes, fan-assisted ventilation of a dedicated air conditioning unit must be powered by the UPS. This type of support is quite a bit for many small computer manufacturers and data base managers as well. Apples operations to not offer or include support nor do they spend time with concern.

The closing facts in Hoffman’s report says that the survey based results have IT decision makers saying they have little choice but to move ahead with Apple products; based on 11% of IT decision maker respondents. In 18 months, 16% predict their companies will spend more than 20% of their IT budgets on Apple stuff. Such are the pros and cons of IT Decision Makers. Would you be willing to pluck a juicy red Apple from a seemingly lifeless IT Tree…and take a nice big bite of it?

Beware; a bite of the apple can produce a worm of two. You know, it doesn’t fall far from the tree.

Forrester predicts that Apple will sell $7 Billion of Macs and $11 Billion of iPads with $13 Billion in 2014. The report espouses Apples financial health as unparalleled, with profits rising year after year.

That may well be…but for me, it’s the PC.

Til next time…
