The Pipeline VS Bucket System.

I found a very elegant video on YouTube about how we should build ourselves another source of income rather than to depend solely on the main source that is usually converting our time + effort = income. I believe that it is possible to create autonomous systems = our initial time + effort taken to build that system.

Take a look:

Now, the question is what can we do to be like Pablo who took his smarts and creativity to build his pipeline system.

If I were to go through some points, would you agree that our own Pipeline system would:

  1. Not take too much time to build,
  2. Not be too expensive to build,
  3. Not too difficult to do. 
I know of a businessman who gave me a formula that he follows closely for any new projects to improve on his cashflow:

  1. How much to spend?
  2. What is the work?
  3. What is the returns? (Risks?)
One method that I've seen so far is using the internet to earn an income. There is this term that is used called Internet Marketing.

One system that is I am showing a lot of interest is this:

Just go straight to the self-playing video, spend a few minutes of your precious time and understand how it is possible for you to build your own version of Pablo's Pipeline System.

iPAD Sucks?!

I've just read a review by Engadget on the Apple's new toy: iPAD.

 You can go here to read the review yourself:


Here is my gripe about it:

  1. Where is the camera for video conferencing or SKYPE-ing?
  2. Where is the SD card slot?
  3. Where is the USB port?

    Then Engadget reported that the iPAD's Safari software doesn't support websites with Flash support.

    Here is the excerpt:

    "It is without question one of the best browsing experiences we've encountered. But is it the best? Well, not really.

    Why, you ask? Well that answer is simple and extremely complicated at the same time. Currently, there is a web standard called Flash, developed by a company named Adobe, which allows for the easy insertion of rich media into webpages. That's everything from streaming video and audio files, online gaming, to entire websites made using its broad and deep development tools. The penetration percentage for Flash on PCs around the world is something like 98 -- that's almost everyone -- and many, many sites employ the standard on their pages. When we say many, we mean most if not all of the pages you typically visit use Flash to display some of their content. The iPad browser doesn't support Flash, and won't support Flash, perhaps ever. Apple has not only turned away from what is the industry standard for rich media in webpages, but it instead is pushing a newer standard called HTML5. Apple has been very successful thus far in moving its agenda forward and bringing websites into the fold of HTML5, but we're talking maybe, say, one percent of websites on the internet. Probably way less.

    So what does this mean for an end user? Well it means that when you visit a site like Hulu, HBO, NBC, Lala (which ironically, Apple just purchased), Engadget, Gizmodo, or many, many others, you will have a broken experience. That means there will be certain elements of these sites (in the case of HBO, the entire site itself) that simply won't work. Now, we're geeks. We get it. We know what's going on when a site shows the broken plugin icon, or says we need Flash. But to the wide world of "everyone" that Apple wants to sell this product to, this will result in a confusing and frustrating experience... a broken experience. That may be fine to Apple, but it isn't fine to us, and shouldn't be fine to the rest of the world. As an aside, we've been surprised other iPad reviews have not been more forthcoming in pointing this problem out -- this is not a small thing; it's is a major deficit in the iPad's browser. Now keep in mind we're not saying we love Flash and want to marry it -- in fact, we'd love to see a less CPU intensive format take its place -- but HTML5 isn't that format, at least not yet. It's important to understand that a lot of users will see the lack of Flash as a drawback, even if Apple doesn't like the standard, and even if Safari on the iPad is a brilliant experience (which it frankly is)."

    One thing that makes me give a lot of respect to Engadget is that they point out that they've "been surprised other iPad reviews have not been more forthcoming in pointing this problem out -- this is not a small thing; it's is a major deficit in the iPad's browser. "

    Kudos to Engadget.

    So far, there are no other internet browser like the Firefox and IE that'll work on the iPAD because it is using the iPHONE OS.

    This release of the iPAD is like the first release of the iPhone where later, there were people complaining about it's many problems. But like how Apple always listens to their customers, they improved the iPhone with the iPhone 3GS. A definite iPhone beater!

    I think like what most smart techies out there would do is that I'd probably wait for the version 2 of the iPad to come out before I spend good money on it (unless I have a life or death need for it).
