I noticed that I had never before seen the endzone depiction in this year’s game. It has a close-up shot of the Sun Devil man’s head in the corner of both end zones with a wordmark I had never seen before that incorporates the pitchfork being the E in Arizona State in one endzone and the E in Sun Devils in the other. If anyone has played the game and used ASU you know what I am speaking of. I checked the official ASU football website, but didnt see anything about new endzones for 07. Do any ASU fans out there know if this will be used this year ?? Thanks for the help. Hey erikstoll : I knew Nevada was coming off a 9-3 campaign and just wanted to try out the Pistol offense and see how good Rowe, the QB is on the game. You’d be happy to know I beat ASU 32-3 that game. Now, just if the Pack could just win that game by a score like that in reality – I’d be REALLY impressed.

A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Related Posts Over the last year, eBay has been trying to slowly move users away from its auctions and more towards purchases of fixed-priced items. Last week, however, eBay announced that it plans to return to its roots and that the company wants to put more emphasis on its auctions business again. Judging from the latest data from Compete, eBay’s former strategy was clearly not working and was actually driving users away from eBay and toward other fixed-price retailers like Amazon and Walmart. According to Compete, the percentage of eBay shoppers who also shopped at Amazon increased from 41% in February 2008 to 53% in February 2009. At the same time, however, the number of Amazon users who also shopped at eBay remained stable at 58%, which, according to Compete, shows that eBay’s fixed-price strategy did nothing to attract new buyers. These problems were only compounded during the last year, as eBay also lost a lot of its casual sellers to Craigslist (which saw its traffic rise 40% over the past year). As Compete’s Matt Pace rightly points out, eBay’s strategy of emphasizing fixed-price transactions only muddled the waters and blurred eBay’s distinction from other online retailers, including eBay’s own shopping.com. Also, users clearly prefer to buy from a trusted source like Amazon, and the average order value on eBay has remained stable at around $28 for the last year.That doesn’t mean that eBay’s focus on “Buy-It-Now” transactions was a total failure, though. The number of these transactions grew steadily over the last year (up 20% from last year), but this was not enough to make up for the simultaneous decline in eBay’s auction business. According to Compete, 1.5 million fewer users actually placed bids on eBay in February 2009 than a year ago.

Tags:#start#StartUp 101 This week’s roundtable had some very interesting businesses. Three out of the five that presented are going to be featured on the 1M/1M Incubation Radar shortly, and a fourth will be featured on Deal Radar. Here’s a brief recap, before we do comprehensive profiles on them.First up was Avinash Gavande for Hospitality Star, an e-learning SaaS vendor for the hospitality industry. Avinash has several customers in the mid-market in India and South East Asia. They’re doing about $200,000 in revenue, and presented a plan to do a comprehensive SaaS solution for the hospitality industry including ERP and Procurement. The company’s entire client-base, however, is in e-learning, an industry pain that is recognized and acknowledged by customers. Most importantly, the revenues are coming entirely from that business. My read on this company is that they should stay focused on e-learning for hospitality as a core focus, and skip ERP and Procurement for now. For small companies, focus is critical. No need to waste precious resources – engineering, marketing or sales – in building ERP and Procurement solutions at this stage.Rapid Tissue ProcessorNext Leonardo Marcovitz discussed his Rapid Tissue Processor, laboratory equipment for histology labs, of which there are about 5,700 in his target market. At $60,000 per unit, the product is substantially cheaper than its various competitors. It is also faster, making tissue processing more efficient for labs that have significant volume, and can translate to a core business benefit. Leonardo has validated the premise with several labs and has built a prototype. He needs about 10-12 months to get through the regulatory process, and also funding to manufacture the product. Funding for early stage biotech ventures has become very, very tight. I was talking to someone at San Jose State University’s biotech incubator last night, and he said they were having a really hard time. I suggested to Leonardo to explore possible service projects with Quest Diagnostics and Labcorp, two of the largest companies in his target market, and see if they can generate some revenue with which to fund the project. An alternative would be strategic investment from Quest or Labcorp. Music WizardChris Salter then presented Music Wizard. The company has been around for a while, and sells various digital games and educational products around learning to play music. A $500 educational product is selling well for them right now, and they also have a variety of distribution deals and so forth. Music Wizard has raised $10 million dollars, but the revenue levels have fluctuated. With a burn rate of about $80,000 a month, the company is just about close to break even. Chris is trying to raise money while protecting his current shareholders. My sense is that any investor coming into the deal today will severely dilute the older investors, and that may simply not be the best route forward. Recapitalization deals are very complicated and often end up ugly. Instead, Chris should try to bootstrap the company going forward, and build organically. There may be some small amounts of working capital financing that can be used, but otherwise, at this stage, the business needs to grow from internally generated cash.LTT GlobalThen Rani Wemel with LTT Global spoke about an authoring tool for e-learning that enables educators to deliver their educational content on mobile phones. Rani has a couple of pilot educational institution customers in Malaysia and Indonesia, and hopes to help them deliver their material to students in a scalable way. The institutes have committed to paying about $.80 per student per month, and one of the pilots will be with 120 students. Not a bad start to be able to get customers to pay for such pilots, and if Rani can get another 20 pilots going in the educational institutions, she will learn a lot about what is needed to really and truly bring this authoring tool to market: What functionality? What usage model? What kind of professional services? All these are open questions. But with a steady set of pilots in swing, Rani should be able to answer these questions.I started doing my free Online Strategy Roundtables for entrepreneurs in the fall of 2008. These roundtables are the cornerstone programming of a global initiative that I have started called One Million by One Million (1M/1M). Its mission is to help a million entrepreneurs globally to reach $1 million in revenue and beyond, build $1 trillion in sustainable global GDP, and create 10 million jobs. In 1M/1M, I teach the EJ Methodology which is based on my Entrepreneur Journeys research, and emphasize bootstrapping, idea validation, and crisp positioning as some of the core principles of building strong fundamentals in early stage ventures. In addition, we are offering entrepreneurs access to investors and customers through our recently launched our 1M/1M Incubation Radar series. You can pitch to be featured on my blog following these instructions.The recording of this roundtable can be found here. Recordings of previous roundtables are all available here. You can register for the next roundtable here.Sramana Mitra is a technology entrepreneur and strategy consultant in Silicon Valley. She has founded three companies, writes a business blog, Sramana Mitra on Strategy, and runs the 1M/1M initiative. She has a master’s degree in electrical engineering and computer science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Her Entrepreneur Journeys book series, Entrepreneur Journeys, Bootstrapping: Weapon Of Mass Reconstruction, Positioning: How To Test, Validate, and Bring Your Idea To Market and her latest volume Innovation: Need Of The Hour, as well as Vision India 2020, are all available from Amazon.Photo by Pierre Amerlynck Related Posts Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… sramana mitra 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market
Former India coach Greg Chappell mocked the Indian team saying they are not fit for Test cricket . The former Australian captain went a step ahead and blamed the Indian culture for the team’s debacle in the tour of Australia.”Test cricket is pretty tough for them (India). It was obvious from the start of the tour that the Indians weren’t really interested in Test cricket,” said Chappell, on the sidelines of a promotional event for his book, Fierce Focus, at Adelaide Writers Week.Chappell said Indians are not cut out for Test cricket and are only fit for Twenty20.”After the Australians showed that they were going to be a formidable foe, I was very disappointed with the Indians. And having worked with many of them and having been in the dressing room with them, Test cricket was too hard for most of them. They can only make a lot of money playing 20-over cricket. Fifty-over cricket they can sort of put up with.”Test cricket for a lot of, not only India, a lot of subcontinent teams, I think it’s pretty tough. And the challenge for Test cricket is, without the sort of grounding that we (Australians) had as kids, Test cricket is too hard. It’s very demanding mentally, physically and emotionally,” he said.Chappell blamed culture for the team’s debacle.”The culture is very different, it’s not a team culture. They lack leaders in the team because they are not trained to be leaders. From an early age, their parents make all the decisions, their school teachers make their decisions, their cricket coaches make the decisions.”The culture of India is such that if you put your head above the parapet someone will shoot it. Knock your head off. So they learn to keep their head down and not take responsibility. The Poms (British) taught them really well to keep their head down. For if someone was deemed to be responsible, they’d get punished. So the Indians have learned to avoid responsibility. So before taking responsibility for any decisions, they prefer not to,” he said.Chappell also said that Virender Sehwag’s ambition to become the Indian captain has hurt the team.”Sehwag thought he should be captain after (Anil) Kumble, so there is a bit of a collision there. I think Dhoni is getting to a point where Test cricket is getting too hard for him, and the undercurrent around the dressing room cannot help,” he said.advertisement
A 7-inch Samsung tablet that looks like a Smartphone has been spotted in China. According to a report on SAMMOBILE, the device bears the model number SM-T2558.The SM-T2558 will have a quad-core 1.2GHz processor and 1.5GB RAM. It may sport a 8-megapixel rear and 2-megapixel front cameras. The device is expected to come with 8GB storage with a microSD slot. The SM-T2558 is said to run on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean instead of the latest Kit Kit.Given the specifications, we assume that SM-T2558 will be a mid-ranger.With this size, the SM-T2558 is going to be a handset with the largest screen ever. It was spotted at a Chinese regulatory site that deals with certification for approvals.For now, there is no information as to when and where it will be launched. We expect more leaks to follow about its features and other details.

Facebook Updates Originally published Sep 14, 2011 2:55:00 PM, updated October 20 2016 Topics: This afternoon, Facebook announced the release of a brand new feature, the Subscribe Button for profile pages. Ultimately, the new feature enables Facebook to support and provide even more publicly available content, which is a huge stride for its position in the search market.Up until now, users haven’t had much control over what see in their News Feed. On a user-by-user basis, the Subscribe Buttons gives you the ability to choose whether you’d like to see all updates, most updates, or just important updates from another user.3 Main Functions of the Subscribe ButtonThe Subscribe Button, which Facebook promises to start making available on users’ profiles over the next few days, will allow you to:1. Choose exactly what you can see from people in your News Feed. Facebook users can already view updates from their friends in their News Feed, but using the new button, users can now choose how much will get displayed. They will now have the option of seeing all of that particular friend’s updates, most (the amount that they currently see) of their updates, or only important updates (e.g. just highlights like a new job change or a move). Furthermore, users can also choose how much of what type of content will get displayed, such as photos, games, or nothing at all.2. Subscribe to people who aren’t your friends. As long as the user enables the Subscribe Button on his/her profile, you can subscribe to view updates from those people in your News Feed as well. This is a bonus for political figures, journalists, artists, bloggers, etc. who don’t want hoards of friends but do want the ability to spread their messages to others.3. Allow others to subscribe to your updates. Conversely, you can enable the Subscribe Button on your own profile and start generating subscribers to your updates as well. This will allow you to share your updates and content with more than just your friends. You can get even more granular with it, too. If you’ve enabled subscribers, you can limit what the public can see compared to what your friends can see using Facebook’s post-by-post sharing options (e.g. public vs. friends vs. custom). To enable the Subscribe Button on your own profile, visit Facebook’s Subscription Page and click “Allow Subscribers.”Marketing TakeawayWith the new Subscribe Button getting rolled out to personal profiles, the availability of the new feature will mean more publicly available data on Facebook. In addition, as people start enabling the Subscribe Button for their own profiles and try to attract subscribers, Facebook’s search function will become substantially better. Up until now, Facebook’s search functionality has been fairly limiting and not very useful due to the lack of publicly available content. This will soon change, making Facebook even more powerful from a search standpoint.As a marketer, make sure that when you’re promoting your business content on Facebook, you make it publicly available. This will ensure it can be indexed by Facebook search, thus expanding the reach of the content you share on Facebook.Additionally, Facebook’s introduction of the Subscribe Button will likely have future implications for business pages as well as Facebook’s advertising platform. Marketers should keep an eye on Facebook’s future announcements to stay on top of how new features can potentially affect their Facebook marketing efforts.What do you think about Facebook’s new Subscribe Button? Will you add it to your profile? Don’t forget to share this post!
