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?"
                                       With regards,

COMPS CAN BEAT HUMAN MANAGERS

'COMPS CAN BEAT HUMAN MANAGERS'

         . Chris Snijders of Eindhoven University of Technology.

. "As long as you have some history and some quantifiable data from past experiences", Snijders claims, a simple formula will soon outperform a professional's decision - making skills.

. Computer models given the tasks achieved better results in categories like timeliness of delivery, adherence to the budget and accuracy of specification.

. Model was much faster and more accurate than the old system.

. Mathematical models generally make more accurate predictions that humans do. Studies have shown model can better predict the success or failure of a business start - up, and further performance in graduate school.

       . Licking the winning dogs at the racetrack

. The main reason for computers' edge is their consistency Computer model to evaluate stocks.

. Many putative managerial qualities like experience and instution, may in fact be largely issue story, as they develop bad habits that go uncorrected from lack of feedback.

. Meeting in person and poring over dossiers’, are of quality dubious value when it comes to making more   accurate choices, with face - to - face interviews actually degrading the quality of an eventual decision.

. This (Observation) goes against what we are trying to promote, viz : more use of "Face - to - face"     interviewing, using our IIT "(So, obviously, we will NOT quote this report!)

. But, over a period of time, we must develop many statistical "co - relations" between hundreds of          "variables" that we will capture in millions of Job - advts & resumes, in order to be able to "PREDICT", What   career - path / growth path, a given candidate is most likely to achieve, if today, he is

               1) B.E. (Mech)

               2) South Indian

               3) From IIT - Marks

               4) Bachelor

MICROSOFT PLANS IPOD RIVAL

 10 July 2006

MICROSOFT PLANS IPOD RIVAL

·     The shift is likely to anger Samsung, Sony, Creative Technology and other manufactures that were persuaded to use Microsoft's software in their devices, because a Microsoft player would complete with theirs.

This is what happened when

·     IBM / Apple / Company tried to "bypass" their long established declare network and started selling computers directly from their website (to save 15% dealer communication)

·     GM tried to sell cars on its website bypassing dealer network.

·     There was so much opposition from dealers in both cases that the move had to be dropped / withdrawn.

·     Microsoft was only licensing its software to Samsung, Sony, creative. They are NOT Microsoft's dealers. Even then, Microsoft will now become a competitor!

·     This is why, after 6 months, we will either shut down India Recruiter Or Stop further "Registration".

·     We cannot be competition with our own partner websites!
