I Love Living Near My Job and the Beach

I had always wanted to live the beach life, but never had a chance until after I graduated from school and got a job in Tampa. I knew that I could not afford a million-dollar home on the beach, but at least I would be close enough to hit the beach on the weekends. I wanted to live in one of the downtown Tampa apartments that I had been looking at. I would be very close to work, but still close enough to the water to be happy.

I was not sure if I would love downtown life, but I really like it. It is nice to be able to walk home from work and be in my apartment in just 10 minutes or so. Continue reading

A Treasure Trove of Useful Information

When I discovered the Pirate Bay website, I was opened up to a world of things that I had been missing out on. You can find just about anything on the website. I’ve found many books that I’ve been interested in reading, but couldn’t find at the library. I’ve found old games that I used to play but couldn’t get my hands on anymore because there were no more copies of them in stores. I’ve even found mix tapes from some of my favorite musicians.. The best thing that I’ve found on the website is a manual for an old television.

Most people would think that an old television manual wouldn’t be something to get excited about, but this was no ordinary manual. This manual contained instructions on how to take apart the television. Again, a normal person wouldn’t care about something like this, but to me, it meant that I could try my hand at repairing an old television. I have a television that has problems with the images it displays. Continue reading

The Lurking Horrors of Sewers

Have you ever wondered what happens when you flush your toilet? It’s so nice and convenient that after flushing we’re given clean water with nothing to remind us of the horror that we left behind in that pure white porcelain bowl. I doubt the majority of Americans are the kind of people who are going to be thinking of their own wastes in such a context but there are times when I cannot help but wonder what happens to it all and the people that are forced to work as sewer cleaning in Bronx NY. Those men and women have to be some of the bravest people in the world, I used to think, which is what drove me into the local employment agency in order to discover first hand what kind of terrible stories they have. Stories that come from their actual worldly experiences of diving into those unholy human-carved and human-soiled depths.

When we were kids I no doubt I was the only one who used to imagine vast cities hidden within the sewers. Imagined places that were like Neverland. Continue reading

We Need Internet Marketing Help

My boss and I sat down with some of the guys in tech and the marketing staff this morning. We are getting ready to open up a new web page and we are trying to figure out how to promote it. Of course that is not an easy thing to do and so we are looking for help. There are a lot of guys who do Internet marketing, but it is really hard to figure out who has the ability to produce results. For example I checked out some Ewen Chia reviews and this guy really makes a lot of big claims. The essence of his pitch is that if you listen to him, then you stand to make millions. In fact that is a common thread when you listen to people in this field. They are in marketing after all and the first thing that they need to be able to do is to sell their own services. The fact is that this is really complicated stuff and no one who is not trained is going to be able to really understand the stuff. Continue reading

Photon Infotech is the Largest Global Provider in C2C-UX

Photon, founded by two successful entrepreneurs in Silicon Valley in 2007, is the largest global provider of Cloud-to-Consumer User Experiences, also known as C2C-UX. C2C-UX are cross-platform, multichannel solutions including mobile, social, web, kiosk and in-store consumer touchpoints. Photon uses these experiences to leverage a competitive advantage for their clients with the scale and cost efficiency of a Central IT cloud platform. Their development in design and IT as well as business channels uniquely positions them to drive exponential growth of users and revenue. The company is aggressively growing with a sales growth of 65% year over year and a customer base currently exceeding 700. Presently, Photon is the largest in dedicated mobile engineers with over 1500 across the United States, India and Indonesia as well as the largest in consumer touchpoints with more than 60 million a day.
Photon is so successful because of their ability to combine the creative design skills of an agency with the forceful IT delivery capacity of a global services provider. Unlike other global providers, Photon has the ability to offer their in-house design agency, 72 Pixels. 72 Pixels works with Photons’ clients Marketing Departments to deliver front-end creative and user-centric experiences. Their fusion of core IT systems with front-end creative makes Photon an exclusive partner for the cloud-to-consumer demographic. Photon drives their product through their multichannel project success: ideation through implementation and beyond into iteration.
From its inception in 1999, to its current status as a global powerhouse, Photon Infotech has always abided by one principle: utilize the latest technology to create dynamic, cutting-edge solutions. And because the company has never deviated from its core principles, it currently enjoys tremendous success within the IT consulting arena.
The precursor to Photon Infotech, INFRAVIO, was founded by brothers Srinivas and Mukund Balasubramanian from a Stanford University dorm room in 1999. Whereas Srinivas focused on the business side of the operation, Mukund was placed in charge of technology. Their combined skill set allowed them to conceive a strong, practical business plan, and the brothers were soon able to acquire venture capital for their burgeoning operation.
As web services developed, the brothers became aware that the Enterprise Cloud would soon emerge as a global platform. It was this insight that allowed them to anticipate the needs of Fortune 100 companies. As INFRAVIO began to grow, the executives learned how to asset cost and risk while still providing innovative, modern solutions to their rapidly growing list of clientele.
With the landmark release of the iPhone in 2007, the brothers founded Photon Infotech. Mobile technology was a foreign concept to most IT companies, but the brothers had already ascertained that cloud computing and mobile tech would soon revolutionize the industry. Photon Infotech quickly established a favorable reputation and ended up gaining hundreds of clients looking to capitalize on the mobile boom. It even played a hand in developing the iPhone’s Virtual Assistant “Siri.”
To date, Photon boasts over 700 unique clients, possesses over 1,500 employees over the U.S, Indonesia and India, and works with over 22% of the Fortune 100 companies. It recently launched a New York based subdivision entitled 72 Pixels. Focusing on the front end design of mobile applications, 72 Pixels transformed Photon Infotech from a back end solutions provider to a company that can create a mobile app in its entirety.
The company has also won a multitude of outstanding achievement awards including its recognition by Red Herring as one of the Top 100 companies globally.

Photon Infotech – World Leading Internet Consulting Firm

It is very likely that you have downloaded at least one mobile app that was created or
worked on by world leading Internet consulting firm Photon Infotech. I’m sure most
iPhone 4 users have at least tried out the Virtual Assistant app otherwise known as
Siri. What about Gas Buddy – ever heard of that one? The point is Photon Infotech has
worked with some of the biggest names in the industry to deliver end projects that change
the way the average person lives their life.

Most people assume that Photon Infotech has been around for decades. After all, it
usually takes a long time to secure dozens of Fortune 500 clients. Astoundingly, Photon
has only been around for 13 years. So how exactly did they manage to achieve such
resounding success in that amount of time?

Well, the answer begins and ends with their staff members. See, Photon Infotech employs
workers who possess a wide range of knowledge, and who specialize in at least one,
if not many, fields. Thus, Photon Infotech’s collective knowledge base is significantly
larger than that of their closest competitors.

Also, the leaders at Photon Infotech believe that an open environment facilitates
productivity and growth. Employees are encouraged to work together on solutions, and
spend a significant amount of time bouncing ideas off one another. It is a proven fact
that teams work more effectively than a group of individuals. Photon Infotech takes
advantage of this – the results of their tremendous efforts speak for themselves.

But more than anything, Photon Infotech succeeds because it supplies their clients with
cutting edge, ambitious and comprehensive solutions. Even now, Photon Infotech is
preparing their clients for the future by launching their Windows 8 development practice.
To date, there are already 100 trained engineers working on 10 different projects for the
new OS set to launch in October, 2012.

Photon Infotech has attainted their esteemed status in the industry not by excelling in just
one area, but by mastering every aspect of how a company should be run. Look for them
to continue to grow in the future.

Photon Infotech, a leading IT consulting agency and provider of Cloud-to-Consumer User Experiences, is proud to announce the launch of their new website. In keeping with its tradition of always utilizing the most cutting edge technologies and designs to create superior products, the site boasts one of the cleanest, most user friendly interfaces found on the web today.
Visitors will notice several appealing modifications made to the site. First and foremost, navigation is now made significantly easier, as articles on recent news, projects and the company overview and history are all only one click away. Additionally, the mission statement of the company is listed on the home page, allowing prospective visitors to get an idea of the services offered by one of the largest IT solutions providers in the world.
Photon Infotech uses the new website to highlight the work it has done with high profile customers. For instance, it has recently worked with industry leaders Walgreen, Horizon and HSN on mobile applications that allow users to interact with the companies from the convenience of their smartphone or tablet. To date, Photon works with over 22% of Fortune 100 companies and reaches over 60 million end users on a daily basis – a staggering amount for a company only conceived in 1999.
Photon also uses the website to introduce 72 Pixels. A new division that focuses on the front end design and creative aspects of a solution, the professionals at 72 Pixels are equally proficient at creating visually appealing, easy to use interfaces as they are at understanding how to engineer robust back end solutions. Companies employing their services are guaranteed to have their applications stand out among the rest of the crowd.
Photon Infotech proves itself not through talk, but through action. It is one thing to say that you are accelerating innovation, but to prove year after year that you are the absolute best at what you do is another. Thanks to its committed, talented staff and tireless work ethic, Photon Infotech has enjoyed an over 65% year over year sales growth since 2009, and shows no sign of slowing down.

Photon Infotech’s Worldwide Reach

Throughout history, the most pioneering technologies have always managed to bring
people closer together. Thanks to inventions such as the steam powered engine and the
Internet, boundaries that once limited the way people communicate no longer exist.
Nowadays, mobile technologies grant regular people an extreme amount of flexibility.
They can check their bank accounts, search for reviews and contact faraway family
members from just about anywhere in the world. This kind of worldwide reach would not
be possible if it wasn’t for companies like Photon Infotech.

Fortune 500 companies across the globe understand that accessibility is the key to
acquiring new customers. After all, who wants to use a mobile application or website that
is unwieldy and hard to navigate? These companies and others desire technologies that
are both fully functional and well-designed. It is for this reason that so many big name
firms have turned to Photon Infotech.

The 1,500 professionals employed at Photon work together to create comprehensive
solutions. Whereas most IT firms only handle the developmental aspect of building an
app, Photon is happy to assist its clients with the layout and design of their products.
Consequently, companies no longer need to employ multiple firms to complete one
project. By turning to Photon for all their needs, firms save money, time and valuable
resources.

Today, Photon is facilitating the growth of technologies that will bring people even closer
together. They will accomplish this through their Windows 8 development practice.
Windows 8 promises to expand upon the capabilities of mobile devices. By taking
advantage of this powerful new OS, Photon Infotech will provide its clients with even
more flexibility in how they touch base with their end users.

Making the Work Area Safer

I take my business very seriously. I know there are a lot of owners of companies that let others handle most things, but I like to get my hands dirty, so to speak. When there was an accident at one of our locations, I went there myself to find out what had happened. A worker escaped serious injury when one of the ladders to the roof came lose while he was on it. I wanted to make sure nothing like that ever happened again, so I did a search for a fixed access ladder. I also went and examined the other locations in person and saw that the potential for the same kind of accident was present at quite a few of them. Continue reading

Started on the Bathroom Remodeling Plans

shower doors in Essex county NJThe first thing is to figure out what we are going to do and how much money we are going to be willing to put in to this. It is not like you can not plow tons of cash in to this sort of project. In theory we would like to do as much of it as we can by ourselves, but some of it might not be that practical. For instance we found this place that has a good deal on some really nice tempered glass shower doors in Essex county NJ, but we are looking at this thing and we were asking the guy in the store if he knew how to install it.

Is the Traditional Office Coming to an End?

The general office model has served businesses well over the past few decades, offering every employee a dedicated working area within a specific part of the building. A new employee, on joining a business or organisation, is usually given a guided tour of the building before being shown a desk and workspace at which he or she is expected to conduct most aspects of the job for that day, and for all subsequent days within the company.Traditional Office

Financial cutbacks

The recent years of austerity have affected the way we do business and the way in which we approach our working day. Now firms are desperately trying to trim their expenses and many organisations are finding that the ‘one employee, one desk’ policy is no longer appropriate or desirable.

Allowing for staff absences due to holidays, illness or business travel, many companies have identified the expenditure of providing heating, lighting and electronic equipment for unused workstations. The answer for many is to drastically reduce the number of available desks, doing away with the concept of each employee having an exclusive working zone.

Technical advances

It’s not just the recession to blame for this new trend. The rapid technological advances of recent years have made computers lighter, faster, more powerful and much more portable than they used to be. Tablets and smartphones can be carried in a pocket, allowing an employee to access data no matter where they happen to be, providing greater mobility to staff.

Furthermore, the rise of cloud computing means that members of staff no longer need to carry around bulky and heavy laptops in order to stay in touch with the office. The businessman or businesswoman on the go can receive emails, phone calls and other information from the office quickly and easily wherever there is Wi-Fi connection, which provides a degree of flexibility and freedom never before experienced by the business world.

Hot desking and teleworking

More and more companies are turning to the hot desk model of providing a limited number of workstations at which employees can work for a period of time. Desks can be booked for an allotted time or simply made available to any employees within the vicinity.

Teleworking allows employees to work from home, or even on the go. In some instances employees may rarely need to set foot in the office at all. Some hotel chains have seen their own business opportunity and have created ‘drop in’ business facilities up and down the country to provide the perfect solution for business people on the move. With just the click of a mouse or a brief phone call it is perfectly possible look at booking anything from one of the meeting rooms Kings Cross has to offer, to‘hot desking’ it in Manchester.

Businesses have learned that trimming budgets is vital to ensure continuing success in these challenging times and have been quick to see the savings that can be made. A flexible workforce which can operate seamlessly from a range of locations has the advantage over a static business based at one site with all of the associated costs this model entails. The traditional office set up is beginning to look like a dinosaur.
