Live like Steve Jobs but retire like Bill Gates

So okay I got your attention and it got you here.  And yes I will try to distort reality like the guru of distorted reality himself in his videotaped conferences.

I will try not to be personal about Steve’s personal life and Bill’s wealth. Give me 60 billion dollars and I will try and make the world a better place too. Give me 60 bucks and I will try and make this next hour a better place

What did Bill do better than Steve did?  He managed his mood swings better. Actually he never need to manage that at all. He managed his personal life better for sure. Bill Gates sure managed his stock option negotiations better, except I think Steve Ballmer got way too many options that he deserved which he respectfully reinvested in the tech ecosystem by buying a sports team.

20 years before Zuckerberg settled money for stealing ideas from his Harvard brothers, Bill Gates  settled dues for his cough inspired interface and actually cough cough invested in Apple. So this is not a comparison on ethics too.

NO NO NO. Steve was awesome but Bill got rich. Would you rather be rich or would rather be awesome?

Steve lived an awesome life as a rockstar techie. No one can accuse Bill Gates of living a rockstar life. I am sure the rockstars would complain.

Steve managed the ups and downs in his products much much better. Sure Lisa bombed and Macintosh boomed and NeXT was ok and Pixar was awesome and the i-series brought a tonne of money

Mac,Pod,iTunes,Phone,Pad they all started with the iCEO Steve.

Cook is no Steve Jobs. Steve Jobs didnt write many lines of code in his life but he could sell.

But Jobs got  overworked , and in the end the man became a bigger brand than his company. Bill Gates retired at 50 knowing he was handing off stuff to Ballmer who aint that Great as Gatesy , but he quit in time.

So live like Steve Jobs, but know when to quit and retire and take that money and enjoy life.

Every Rose has its thorn

We both lie silently still
in the dead of the night
Although we both lie close together
We feel miles apart inside

Was it something I said or something I did
Did the words not come out right
Though I tried not to hurt you
Though I tried
But I guess that’s why they say

Every rose has its thorn
Just like every night has its dawn
Just like every cowboy sings his sad, sad song
Every rose has its thorn
Yeah it does

I listen to our favorite song
playing on the radio
Hear the DJ say loves a game
of easy come and easy go
But I wonder does he know
Has he ever felt like this
And I know that you’d be here somehow
If I could have let you know somehow
I guess


Though it’s been a while now
I can still feel so much pain
Like a knife that cuts you the wound heals
but the scar, that scar remains

I know I could have saved a love that night
If I’d known what to say
Instead of makin’ love
We both made our separate ways
But now I hear you found somebody new
and that I never meant that much to you
To hear that tears me up inside
And to see you cuts me like a knife
I guess



ps- Every rose has its thorn, every blogger has its horn.

Spam Vidhya : How to spam like a boss

  1. CONTENT LINK SHARING- Post 4 articles a week on blog. Post 10 links a day on Facebook to current and old content
  2. SCRAPE CONTENT- For your discussion forum Scrape content from Stack Overflow and rewrite it to make it more user-friendly. Boost SEO using link sharing (step 1)
  3. LINK SCHEMES-  Accept 70,000 rs for promoting trainings on your blog. Then post links on it.
  4. FAKE ACCOUNTS- Use fake accounts to post content on discussion forum
  5. ARBITRAGE-  Google Report spam links are here

“Webspam” refers to pages that try to trick Google into ranking them highly. Before you file a webspam report, see if the page might have a different problem:

Paid links Copyright and other legal issues
This page is selling or buying links. This page should be removed under applicable law.
Objectionable content Personal/private
This page is inappropriate. This page discloses private information.
Malware Phishing
This page is infected. This page is trying to get sensitive information.
Other Google products Rich Snippets
This page abuses Google products other than Search, e.g., AdSense, Google Maps, etc. This page doesn’t comply with Google’s rich snippets guidelines.
Something else is wrong
This page has other, non-webspam related issues.
This page is really webspam.


But Facebook addresses SPAM completely different in it’s user interface.  It actually encourages people to create fake accounts to boost content spamming though it kind of dents its own advertising promoted content revenue by doing so.

How do I report spam on Facebook?

You can report spam using the report links near most content types and features on Facebook. Keep in mind that you may have to log in to do so.

If your account is sending spam, reset your password. Malware can also sometimes cause your account to post things without your knowledge. Learn how to remove malware.

If someone is repeatedly posting something you think is spam, consider unfriending, blocking or reporting that person.

If you think someone posting spam has had their account hacked, tell them to visit the Help Center to learn how to fix it.


This leads to arbitrage opportunities in which spammy behavior in one social media is just enthusiastic behaviour in another social media.
