Gmail uploaded a simple, relevant and well made video about their spam technology. Love it how they mentioned their way to combat those dreaded image spam with a plug with for Google Book Search.
Simple, relevant and impactful marketing – Clearly delivering value to their audience
I believe the right way forward is never to cry foul at your competitors. A better way to deal with comparison is:
1) accept that someone has done a better job,
2) evaluate where they are doing ,
3) quietly work to achieve parity and later exceed the industry’s expectations and
4) let the results speak for themselves and your users will back you up.
Berno’s technology 2 cents. Hey, what do I know about the tech industry? *shrug*
Today, Microsoft Research announced the promotion and appointment of Dr. Hsiao-Wuen HON as Managing Director of the Beijing Lab (Microsoft Research Asia, MSRA). Rob Knies, a member of Microsoft Research, interviewed Hon and posted an interview after news of this appointment.
BERNO: I really enjoyed working here in Microsoft Research Asia. The culture here is healthy, inquisitive, open and respectful. Everyone is keen to make their contribution to advance the state of computing and technology development and nuture the next generation of researchers. When I first joined the organisation, I received a personal welcome email from Hon. I felt very welcome and humbled to receive a direct email from an organisation then-deputy MD.
Xin Zou, a Research Dev Lead, a 10 years veteran with Microsoft wrote a blog entry about his personal interview experience. I think it is worthwhile to blog about this because it’s uncommon to find Microsoft interview process articles written in Chinese. Good read.
