Hi Friends,

Even as I launch this today ( my 80th Birthday ), I realize that there is yet so much to say and do.

There is just no time to look back, no time to wonder,"Will anyone read these pages?"

SMART PHONE MFRRS.

You know it better than anyone else

Some 6 Million Smart Phones / Tablets will be sold in India in 2012

All because of the Apps

Apps like  “ My Jobs “  widget , which Suneet Tuli [ Datawind ] plans to pre-install on all Aakash / Ubislate Tablets , starting end Jan

To quote Suneet :

“ Dear Hemen

Thank you for your proposal. I think this is a great app and would be useful to our customer base. We would be happy to include your App on all our devices “

May be you would too

If so feel free to phone me ( M ) 0-98,67,55,08,08

WHY IS MY JOB BETTER

On Android Market , you will find a number of “ Job Search “ apps, such as :

> Monster Job Search            > Job Street Job Search
> Indeed Jobs                       > LinkUp Job Search Engine
> Job Search HireADroid        > Career Builder
> Dice Job Search                 >  TimesJobs ………………  etc

All of these apps ask jobseekers to enter , one or more , of the following “ Search Parameters “, on a small mobile screen( - since it cannot accommodate long drop-lists ? ) :

>  Job Title                >  Keywords            >  Type of Job
>  Skills                    >   Function             >  Location
>  Company Name     > Boolean [ and / or / not ]

Then return between 50 to 1500 so-called “ matching jobs “, which , a jobseeker must open / read , one at a time , to finally “ zero –in “ on 5 !

These apps are trying to replicate the PC context on a 3” screen – assuming jobseeker will remain glued for 4 hours !

“ My Jobs “ begs to differ !

It believes in matching the resume of each jobseeker , every morning , with 400,000 + jobs in our database , find those 5 perfectly matching jobs  and deliver only those 5 onto his mobile screen!

In the words of author Chuck Martin [ The Third Screen ], it makes “ My Jobs “ , a “ Finder “ type app , rather than a “ Searcher “ type apps – which , Chuck believes , are totally unsuitable for the mobile context

I request you to give me an opportunity to personally explain the advantage of “ pre – installing “ My Jobs “ app on Smart phones / Tablets being manufactured by your company

Do not hesitate to phone me on 0-98,67,55,08,08 (Mumbai )
