The Art of Stealing: How to Become a Master Designer


Painter Pablo Picasso once said, “Good artists copy. Great artists steal.” This has never been more true than today.
Many outsiders believe that designers are unicorns, gifted or special in some way. We have an innate ability to create gorgeous interfaces, a natural talent for matching complementary colors, an unexplainable intuition for building beautiful typography. None of this is true. Becoming a great designer actually takes years of hard work, experimentation, and failure.
The problem with unicorn thinking is that it makes design seem unattainable to people who are interested, but don’t see themselves as creative types. I’ve met many programmers and people in tech who are convinced they can’t get into design because of this. But they can turn these mental blocks into building blocks with a simple mindset shift. Instead of looking at other designers’ work with envy, think of it as the key to your success.
In fact, interactive design has a lot in common with the open source software community: You can master it by stealing and copying from the best of the best. And make no mistake: These are the top designers in the world, from places like Dropbox, Facebook, and Palantir.
How do I know it works? Because it worked for me.

The Parallels Between GitHub & Dribbble

When I started learning design, I was amazed by the sheer amount of code that’s out there and can be used for free—open source software has a market share of about 80 percent. The best part is you can modify it and see what happens, which accelerates your learning. GitHub has every single plugin and code snippet you can imagine, anything from a jQuery dropdown to a CSS framework and much more.
Dribbble’s rebound feature is the closest thing we have in the design industry to GitHub’s “forking,” or downloading any piece of open source software and making it your own.

How a Cellular Network Works!!!


main.jpg 

Cellphones really changed the world over, right from how we communicate, to how we socialize with modern times. But have you ever wondered how a Cellphone Network really works? Let's find out!!!


Basics:

Your Zenfone is really a radio transmitter in all basic sense. It can transmit and recieve. But the transmission and reception of all cellular mobile conforms to rules laid out by a global forum called GSM. GSM has laid out a format and technology template for all communication to happen. 


GSM_Logo_alt.gif

Cell in a network is a immovable transreciever, technically called as a "Base Transciever Station (BSS)", commonly known as mobile towers in layman terms. This is called as a cell because hypothetically the range covered by a cell is in an hexagonal shape.

What is 4G & How did we get there??? And do you really need it?

Once we humans established a working cellular network...we started pulling some G's....These G's later, with time, defined how mobile internet will be shaped for the future. Lets take a look at the brief history on these G's

mainpic1.jpg



1) 1st Generation 

1gphones.JPG


The first generation of mobile technology, or "1G", during the 80's was an 'Analog' Telecommunications systems. It was rudimentary and only allowed Telephony and 'Page' messaging. This was a time when Pagers were cool and cellphones were as huge as a cordless phone. Although rudimentary internet could have been possible as the calculated speed (if deployed, but was never deployed publicly) was about 14.4kbps!!!


1g.jpg

'1G' offered us 'circuit-switch' technology, Meaning a connection was established between user to user before the 'voice' was sent over. And that was just about it.....

How To Make Money In Online Marketing

IS MAKING MONEY ONLINE POSSIBLE? LEARN HOW!

An outstanding number of $2.1 billion were paid to website and blog owners in 2008 as affiliate marketing fees. This proves that Affiliate marketing has become one of the best business  online because of the very low startup costs and the income you can generate is mind-blowing.


Affiliate marketing means having your very own site and sending your traffic to somebody else's website to buy their products and/or services. For every sale made by a link from your site, you earn a certain percentage called an affiliate's sales commission.
You can do Affiliate marketing on a part-time basis, but many are so successful that they've decided to make as a full-time job. Another thing is that you can get used to it within just a few hours. How successful you can be  is based on the amount of effort and time you put in it. 
So here is how you can make money online with these six important tips:


1. You should first create a website or blog.
When you start as an affiliate marketer, you need to have a site on where to place links to the services or products you advertise. There are many decent costing website services such as GoDaddy and Hostgator. It is also easy to put up a free blog if you just search enough. I also use Hostnine (get a reseller account) and  Namecheap for hosting for free.


2. You need to Decide on your product or service niche.
Affiliate marketers help entrepreneurs and companies sell anything from cell phones and jewelry  to website services. It would be better for you to choose an area of your expertise  or one you're eager about learning. You will be more likely be enthusiastic to do the work and less likely to get bored before earning money.


3. You should be able to find good products and services to advertise.
Many of the affiliate networks work to connect entrepreneurs with affiliate site publishers who can be a big help in selling their goods. These companies such as:


a. Clickbank and PayDotCom are leading in connecting the makers of software and e-books  with affiliates to sell their digital download services and products.
b. Commission Junction is known for those who want to sell wares from  janitorial franchises to travel services. 
c. Google AdSense where it does not require you to be involve to result in a sale. Your income is realized on a pay-per-click basis.


4. Make sure to check your affiliate's site content.
There are two main business models or approaches that you can choose from when setting up your own affiliate marketing site:

A. Resource Sites-  These sites are usually focused on giving and offering lots of how-to articles, blogs and posts. After, they then provide affiliate links for more details. They frequently add fresh related content for it is vital because it is a reason for other people to return to your site which leads them to click some of your links.

B. Review Sites - This is where you've tried the services and products in your niche and then write about them and rate them. It will help your site visitors decide on what to buy. For each of the product you make a review, you need to provide a banner ad or link that clicks through for the sales on your partner's site. 

5. Your chosen affiliate sites must attract a lot of targeted traffic to gain.
Most people visiting your blog or website will not click your affiliate links. That is why it is critical to use a mix of marketing strategies to increase traffic preferably highly targeted traffic -to your site.

There are four ways you can get more site advertisement/exposure and attract many potential customers:

5.1. Paid Advertising -  This I can say is the most effective way of using a headline to make people click on your link and buy.
5.2. Free Advertising Sites  - US Free and Craigslist Ads are  two of many popular sites that accept banner ads and links for free. These may be affiliate marketing sites as well, making the owner money when someone click their ads.
5.3. Article Marketing - This is a popular marketing strategy that offers many benefits. You are building your credibility as a reliable source in your own niche which gains you a higher search engine ranking by upping the number of links leading to your website, and directing traffic to your website. You need to work in a decent manner and do not spam using software engines. 
5.4. E-mail Marketing - Each and every click and visit to your site is of value, so getting their names and e-mail addresses as a way to contact them is important. Many might not buy your products. availing of it on the third or fourth time you contact them. So it is critical to place an opt-in subscription box on your website for subscribers to start getting a weekly or monthly email from you. My personal favorite is definitely aweber, but many other high quality ones also exist.

6. You should learn the ropes in forums - These are online groups or communities of same minded people who exchange ideas and insights. It would be better for you to join at least one of these free affiliate marketing group for you to benefit from ideas shared by others.
