Effective Management Issue

Dialog between me and the manager that happened in the past. The department manager who reports to another manager who reports to director - all sit in the same office space and see each other well. Massive well-known company.

Manager: You're gonna be careful. John The Manager said you spend too much time on Facebook.

Me: I know, but I have been working on the marketing campaign that we are implementing using Facebook and that you approved last week for me to do.

Manager: Hmm, good then. I will tell him. Thanks.

Curtains.




Chinatown in #Sydney

The best place in #Sydney for a variety of food for reasonable price - Chinatown. Also a good indication of what language other than English has to be learnt.








Picking Mandarins

Such a great day at the mandarin orchard at Watkins Family Farm!
When I called them and asked whether cards are accepted they said: "We don't have electricity here mate" :)
Awesome place.











iWork for iCloud - first impression

Today have got a hold of iWork for iCloud beta.


I use MS SkyDrive and Docs for Facebook for online documents editing at the moment. So I decided to give iWorks for iCloud a quick try.

Started with Numbers:


 Browser is not fully supported:


Checked, need Chrome 27 for full support I guess:

However it still works:






Tried to "Share", but received a message that iCloud Mail isn't set up:


Does it mean that I can only share the link in an email?


Tried uploading the working Excel spreadsheet:


Drag-n-dropped:


Here we go:



Looks mostly fine, but got some formatting issue:


Then tried Pages:



Same message about the browser:


$525,000?!

Nice and clean interface:


Tried some typing and found some minor issues:


Have just installed Google Chrome 27. Going to use iWorks for iCloud for some time to try it's features.
Looks nice.
