March 26, 2013

This week’s LDP wine of the week is the Alto Shiraz 2007.

Samsung Galaxy S4, or Apple’s iPhone 5 for Business

March 20, 2013

BusinessBusiness is conducted with phones constantly, so it’s important to keep up and also to choose wisely. Here’s an optimal business use comparison between these phones:

Screen: The S4’s five-inch touchscreen is slightly larger than the Galaxy S3’s 4.8 inches. But it is substantially larger than the iPhone 5’s four inches.

The screen size alone will be a key benefit over the iPhone 5 for many business users. When you’re working with documents, databases, or taking notes, a larger screen is often easier to use, especially for touchscreen typing.

The resolution of the S4 display is comparable that of the iPhone 5’s Retina display. The S4 features a high-definition Super AMOLED screen, with a resolution 441 pixels per inch (ppi). Apple’s iPhone 5 Retina display has a resolution of 326 ppi.

Memory: If you need access to large files or lots of video, the S4 should give you more memory than the iPhone 5. Like the iPhone 5, the S4 comes with built-in memory options of 16, 32 and 64 GB. But the S4 also has a microSD slot that accommodates memory cards up to 64 GB. And you can carry as many of those around as you like.

Size: The S4 is thicker and heavier than the iPhone 5. The S4 weighs 130 grams and is 7.9mm thick while the iPhone 5 weighs only 112 grams and is 7.6mm thick. (But by contrast, Samsung’s Galaxy Note 2 phablet weighs a whopping 182.5g and is 9.4mm thick.)

A few Successful Business Networking Tips

March 14, 2013

Networking GroupA key ingredient to a more effective business is networking. Here are a few tips…

Effective business networking is the linking together of individuals who, through trust and relationship building, become walking, talking advertisements for one another.

Keep in mind that networking is about being genuine and authentic, building trust and relationships, and seeing how you can help others.

Ask yourself what your goals are in participating in networking meetings so that you will pick groups that will help you get what you are looking for. Some meetings are based more on learning, making contacts, and/or volunteering rather than on strictly making business connections.

Visit as many groups as possible that spark your interest. Notice the tone and attitude of the group. Do the people sound supportive of one another? Does the leadership appear competent? Many groups will allow you to visit two times before joining.

LDP wine of the week- Rietvallei Special Select Shiraz.

March 12, 2013

This week’s LDP wine of the week is the Rietvallei Special Select Shiraz.

This is a full-bodied, complex wine with excellent fruit and wood integration. Lots of work in the vineyard and minimal interference in the cellar allows this wine to express its terroir to the fullest. A deep red, almost black colour. A spicy mix of freshly cracked black pepper with hints of coriander and cinnamon followed by robust red berry fruit are evident on the nose.
