6 Essential Traits Of A Perfect CEO

What can require more efforts and responsibilities than being a CEO of a startup? All the endeavors that struggle for success, need a talented and stress-proof Chief Executive (in fact, any business does). The obvious truth is that it takes a lot to be one. It's not a joyful pastime day after day. It's a heavy burden, a challenge that forces a person to do his/her best. There is no absolute recipe for becoming a perfect CEO, but it's quite possible to develop skills that are essential for such a title.

Apart from having tremendous communication skills, which are perhaps the foremost must-have, a perfect CEO...

...has genuine passion for work

A trivial statement? It may seem. But it's surely the passion and persistence that drive to achievements and forces to never give up, to develop an idea into something substantial, and further, successful.

...has a strategy, but is ready for changes

Business isn't static. Neither is the mobile world. Therefore it's important to have a strategy for the mobile startup's evolution. But nonetheless it's important to constantly learn while you work, to react and adapt to changes that come unexpectedly. We tend to dislike them in our comfort zone, we appreciate stability in our daily life. In the mobile business, changes may happen more frequently than in most businesses. On one hand, embracing them, a CEO opens the door to new opportunities. On the other hand, adapting to these rapid changes is a question of survival.

...makes the company client-oriented

As many people would agree, a good business website isn't company-focused - it must be customer-focused instead. The same must be the approach of the company. Its products and/or services must address to and solve problems of its customers. A great CEO drives company to the image and essence of a client-oriented one, in word and deed.

...finds the most talented and trusted people for the team

Nobody is able to become a winner without a strong and reliable team. Nobody is able to do everything on their own. As they say, be quick to fire and slow to hire. There must be right people to surround from the very beginning. The most talented, passionate, the cleverest people aren't easy to find, but it's the CEO who establishes the core of the team. This is the team that can give precious advice in case of need, and this team has experts in different areas, which valuable for the startup.

...isn't afraid of making mistakes

Motivating yourself during hard times is a real challenge. Motivating others at the same time is a challenge worth a CEO. While it's important to see into the future and assess potential threats for the company, it's impossible to make no mistakes at all. Like in everyday life, failures strengthen us, and we struggle to become better. the keeper of the company's flag

As a rule, the founder of the company becomes its CEO. That is the person who has the best vision of the company, its goals and culture, the way it's supposed to develop and succeed. That is the person who maintains relationships with clients and investors, and perfectly knows how the startup's parts make up the entire mechanism. It's lonely at the top - and that's yet another challenge for CEOs. They are the keepers of the company's flag, and have no right to show weaknesses.

What else can be said? A great CEO seizes opportunities (or creates them?), and makes sure that the company holds on to its mission. Great CEOs are macro-managers, faces of the company, role models for their colleagues. We may as well mention such things as being a resolute decision-maker; having advanced abilities of sensing and evaluating risks; presence of technical skills; ability to discern and listen to good advice; always having a 'Plan B'; knowing where and how to say no. There undoubtedly are even more good qualities for a person that leads the mobile startup to prosperity. You can't be perfect, but you always go for it, and that's where you have all the chances to succeed.

Telerik Survey HTML5 vs. Native vs. Hybrid Mobile Apps – 3500 Developers Prefer All Three

Recently, a survey has been conducted among HTML5 vs. Native vs. hybrid mobile applications, but approximately 3500 developers are looking for all these three technologies to proceed with. In this blog, I have provided in-depth information about this survey and its results, so continue reading to get more information… 
Commonly, the debate leads the first application store in order to hit the volume; however, various respondents call for a mobile application strategy, which gives choice between HTML5, Native and Hybrid. One of the most popular application development tools and solutions providers for cross-platform and mobile applications “Telerik” declared the results of its latest Mobile application development survey.

The title of the survey is “The HTML5 vs. Native Debate is Over. The Winner is…,” the survey was conducted in October 2013 and surveyed approximately 3500 respondents from across the world, who are ranging from developers to CTOs to CIOs. It is quite different than last year when more than 94% of developers were betting on HTML5 to win.
Actually, you can find 40% of developers, who have already started developing native, only to switch to HTML5 and 31% have started developing cross-platform in order to switch on native. Todd Anglin, an EVP at cross-platform development toolmaker Telerik, said “Developers are quickly realizing that there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ solution for their mobile development process”. He also added “The choice between native and hybrid approaches is dependent on business needs, app requirements, developer skill, development timeline, and other factors.”
There are many developers, who are going for pure HTML5 rather than native, with approximately 41% of developers are developing cross-platform applications rather than native applications, increase from 36% in January 2013. Along with it, there is huge drop in the number of developers, who are developing pure native, all the time: eight percent, down from 15 percent earlier this year.
However, you would find various developers, who are still using hybrid development methods along with some native apps built with HTML5 code, some apps built in pure cross-platform code, some built with native components with shared and more. At this time, one of the major questions is whether HTML5 that can be used to build application-like interactivity as well as capability into a web-native format, is enterprise-ready or not.
According to Telerik, the answer of this question is that a complete third of developers says it is, but a quarter of developers’ say it will be in the next 12 month. A big portion of developers – 43% say that HTML5 is not an enterprise ready before at least a year. And rest one – 6% says it never will be enterprise ready.
The (91%) respondents of this survey said that they are already developing using HTML technology with more projects ongoing to desktop compare to mobile. And 53% of respondents said that HTML5 is one of the best ways to go multi-platform while it also has the advantage of being web-native. Among all the respondents, only 4% of developers are developing for iOS only and 13% are simultaneously developing native apps for all of the web, iOS, and Android.
“When considered in context, we are seeing plenty of cases where hybrid is the right choice for a given app, and others where native still makes the most sense, said Todd Anglin, an EVP at cross-platform development toolmaker Telerik. “What developers need, then, are tools that can help them be effective, regardless of the chosen approach.”

The world has lost a great leader. Nelson Mandela.

Nelson Mandela, 95:  Former South African President Nelson Mandela died Thursday at 95. Sen. Bernie Sanders said he was deeply saddened by the passing of one of the outstanding leaders of the 20th century. “In his native South Africa, he was a powerful force for good in the struggle to dismantle the terrible legacy of apartheid. Around the world, his lifelong devotion to equality and fairness serves as a lesson for all of us about the power of determination and the force of dignity.

“Like many in Vermont, I was active in the anti-apartheid movement. It was inspiring for me to be at Mandela’s presidential inauguration in 1994 and to witness first-hand a truly great figure at a pivotal point in history,” Sanders said.

Apple updates iBooks & iTunes U with fresh, flatter looks for iOS 7

Apple on Thursday issued a major update for its iBooks application, giving it a cleaner and simpler look in line with the company's design for the iOS 7 platform.

iBooks version 3.2 for both iPhone and iPad is now available for download from the iOS App Store. The free update ditches the skeuomorphic look of its predecessor in favor of a simplified appearance.

While iBooks previously feature a digital wooden bookshelf that would rotate like a hidden entrance to access the iBookstore, the new application features a greyish-white background where titles are displayed. Accessing the store now simply jumps to a new window where titles can be purchased.

The iBooks icon for iOS has also been updated with an orange gradient background behind a white illustration of an open book.

The same color scheme is also used in the new icon for iTunes U version 1.4, which features a graduate's cap as the centerpiece of its logo. Its new virtual bookshelf is similar in appearance to the redesign of iBooks.

The release notes for both updates state that the applications have been given "an all-new look and feel" bringing them in line with iOS 7.

With Thursday's updates, almost all of Apple's downloadable applications for iOS 7 have been updated with fresh new looks for iOS 7. The most significant remaining outlier is Find My Friends, which continues to feature skeuomorphic stitched leather textures prominently throughout the application.

10 Reasons You Should Upgrade to Windows 8.1 Now

For users on previous versions of Windows who skipped Windows 8, the updated OS deserves a look. Many of the promises Microsoft began to deliver on with Windows 8 (cloud integration, for example) are fully realized in Windows 8.1. It also makes the touch-first modern UI more friendly by introducing some conveniences such as the option to boot up straight to your desktop.
Here are our top 10 reasons for Windows 7, Vista or XP holdouts to make the jump to Windows 8.1:

1. It Takes Up Less Space 

Although Windows 8.1 introduces many new features, it's actually less of a storage hog than Windows 8. Microsoft says the footprint is significantly smaller and will win you back 8-15% of the storage on your device.

2. Supercharged Search

One of the most convenient features of Windows 8 is its ease of search: Just start typing from the Start screen and you can search for settings, content, apps or even stuff on the web. Windows 8.1 takes this to a new level with Smart Search, powered by Bing. Now if you search for a subject such as Benedict Cumberbatch, the White House or Cairo, the results are organized in a search "hero" -- a visually-driven page that will call up basic facts, photos, a map (if applicable) and relevant links -- creating an orderly buffet of information out of what used to be a slop pile.

3. Better Multi-Tasking

Snap -- the ability to have multiple app screens open simultaneously -- is theoretically a great idea, but it was kneecapped in Windows 8 by having only one size and limiting the ability to just two windows. Now Snap is a little more true to its name, letting you resize the smaller window to virtually any size with just a finger swipe. If you have a large, high-res monitor, you'll be able to have multiple windows, potentially having email, Skype, a web browser and the weather all open at the same time.

4. All Live Tiles, Great and Small

Since Microsoft's design philosophy doesn't allow for organizing app icons into folders, it's a big improvement that Windows 8.1 brings with it two new sizes for live tiles: A small square that takes up one-fourth the size of a regular tile, and a biggie size that's the same as four regular squares. The former is great for power users who want to cram as many shortcuts into their screen real estate as they can, and the latter is great for apps with lots of "glanceable" info, like Bing Weather.

5. Automatic App Updates

Sick of all your devices screaming at you to update two, three or a dozen apps? With Windows 8.1, all those updates will just happen in the background, and the Windows Store will stop pestering you with that ever-increasing count of what's still pending.

6. Start Screen Can Share Desktop Background

This may seem like a minor feature, but it may have the greatest potential to make the modern UI friendlier. By having the same background image on both the Desktop and Start screen, Windows "traditionalists" may begin thinking of the modern UI as the extension of the platform that it is, not some alien world to be feared. Unfortunately, Microsoft buried this option in the Taskbar's Control Panel on the Desktop for some reason.

7. Dynamic Lock Screen

The lock screen on a Windows 8.1 device doesn't have to be a static image anymore. There's now the option to play a slideshow, which can pull photos from various folders including whatever you've got in SkyDrive. Plus you can choose to get calendar alerts, email notifications and even take Skype calls without unlocking your device.

8. Improved Multi-Monitor Support

External monitors are a big deal for Windows tablets, since many of them have serious computing power but screens that aren't exactly what you'd call large. Now in Windows 8.1, users will have more control over how content renders on a second display, giving tablets more flexibility.

 9. Deeper SkyDrive Integration

Cloud storage has a lot of advantages over saving things locally: you can access the files from anywhere, they're shareable and they don't take up any room on your device. In Windows 8.1, Microsoft has made SkyDrive the default place to save new documents, and improved things on the back end to ensure the system sees them as local files in every way that matters (for searches, etc.).

10. The Only Way to Get the Facebook App

Chances are you're on Facebook, and chances are you interact with the social network via apps. If you upgrade to Windows 8.1, you'll be able to run the official Facebook app for Windows, which provides a native experience for PCs. There's room for improvement -- the app doesn't appear when you call up the Share charm from another app -- but the response is fast and fluid, and the interface encourages you to explore parts of the service you may have overlooked (just watch the map fly when you browse "Nearby").

Top 10 Quotes About Economics

Since the world economy is apparently about to go to heck in a hand basket, I thought it might be useful to let the experts weigh in on the subject:
1. "Little else is requisite to carry a state to the highest degree of opulence from the lowest barbarism but peace, easy taxes, and a tolerable administration of justice."
Adam Smith
2. "There is one rule for the industrialist and that is: make the best quality goods possible at the lowest cost possible, paying the highest wages possible."
Henry Ford
3. "We know that advanced economies with stable governments that borrow in their own currency are capable of running up very high levels of debt without crisis."
Paul Krugman
4. "Surplus wealth is a sacred trust which its possessor is bound to administer in his lifetime for the good of the community."
Andrew Carnegie
5. "The production of too many useful things results in too many useless people."
Karl Marx
6. "No servant can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and Money."
Jesus of Nazareth
7. "We are fast approaching the stage of the ultimate inversion: the stage where the government is free to do anything it pleases, while the citizens may act only by permission."
Ayn Rand
8. "Prison inmates are treated to cable TV, hot meals and a college education, while on the outside some people can only afford these things through a life of crime."
Alfred E. Neuman
9. "A national debt, if it is not excessive, will be to us a national blessing."
Alexander Hamilton
10. "The inscrutability [of economics] is perhaps not unintentional.  It gives endless employment to dialecticians who otherwise might become public charges or, at very worst, swindlers and tricksters."
Jack Vance

8 Things NOT to Do to Make a Good Impression at Work

Avoid these behaviors if you want to get ahead

Don't underestimate the importance of a first impression. You want to start off on the right foot so your colleagues will like and respect you. So, what shouldn't you do at work?

1. Don't emulate your worst-dressed colleague

Just because you saw someone in accounting wearing flip-flops, doesn't mean you should dress like you're going to the beach. Many organizations encourage comfortable attire, but be careful not to be too quick to try to win the "worst dressed" team member award.

2. Don't give off a "don't talk to me" vibe

Maybe you don't really like people, but if you don't want to be considered a problem employee, you need to appear approachable. If you walk around with a sour expression, arms crossed in front of you and fail to make eye contact with your colleagues, it may just mean you're having a bad day or you're very shy. However, you'll quickly earn a negative reputation that will be difficult to overcome. Smile, even if you don't feel like it or if you are having a bad day.

3. Don't be a slob

At home, if you want to challenge yourself to see how high your piles of junk can get before toppling over, that's up to you. At work, especially in shared work spaces, it's important to maintain a neat workspace. If you appear sloppy, people may assume you aren't organized and can't handle important responsibilities and you'll find yourself in a dead-end job.

4. Don't be a bully

Maybe you were one of the "cool kids" and have a tendency to make fun of people, either to their faces or behind their backs. In the workplace, that can be considered bullying, and can be grounds for being fired in some cases. Regardless of the laws in your state or expectations at your workplace, you aren't likely to win many friends when people worry they may be your next target.

5. Don't spill your guts

Do you tend to overshare? At work, it's best to keep yourself in check and find other people to tell the long, drawn out story of your bad breakup, sex life or wild, partying ways. Keep conversations friendly and professional and keep your personal drama to yourself.

6. Don't talk about how busy or tired you are

No one cares how busy you are. Everyone is busy, and your job is to get the work done. If you are exceptionally overwhelmed, it's a good idea to have a conversation with your boss and to ask for some help, but most of your colleagues will quickly tire of hearing about how busy and overwhelmed you are at work.

7. Do not spend your day on personal calls, texting or posting to social media

When you're at work, phone calls should be work related. At most offices, it's acceptable to have some personal interactions on the phone, but if your friend/child/mother calls you five times a day, it's up to you to table those calls to after hours. The same goes for texting and updating personal social media sites.

8. Don't be the first one to leave

Everyone will judge your work ethic based on when you run for the exit. Do not close up shop at the earliest opportunity if you want to make a good impression. "Face time" is more important at some companies than others, but if you work in an office, make sure you're doing everything you can to help out and to be available to help others before you bolt for the door.
