The Race for Perfect - Steve Hamm
ISBN: 9780071606103
Publication Date: 2008-09-24
Personal computing has reshaped economies and industries, and is transforming how we express ourselves and relate to one another. The most personal of personal computers are the portables. We carry these gadgets with us wherever we go, whether theye(tm)re laptops, smartphones, or the coolest new Web-surfing devices. The Race for Perfect tells the story of two generations of entrepreneurs, designers, and engineers as they have struggled to make ever-better portables. Steve Hamm takes the reader into a world where inspiration, design, engineering, and marketing come together to produce wave upon wave of the innovative products that we love to talk about and use. From the earliest days of portable computing, 40 years ago, entrepreneurs and designers have pushed forward relentlessly in a quest to create the perfect device. Their efforts have produced a few fabulous successes and many failures. But they never give up. Theye(tm)re driven by the basic rule of the tech industry: innovate or die. In addition to a fascinating read, The Race for Perfect offers valuable lessons for business people in any industry, revealing how they must INNOVATE constantly to differentiate their products CREATE design principles that are timeless INTEGRATE design and engineering so products are both useful and fun to use IMPROVE quality and convenience without compromise TAP social networks to turn customers into fans At the center of this tale is the story of a single product, Lenovoe(tm)s ThinkPad X300 laptop. Lenovo, the first Chinese company to seek to establish a global consumer brand, bought IBMe(tm)s PC division in 2005 primarily to get the companye(tm)s storied ThinkPad laptops. The X300 was conceived as a eoehaloe product that would draw customers to Lenovoe(tm)s entire line. Woven through The Race for Perfect is a case study of how this ambitious company, with teams in Japan, the United States, and China, marshaled its resources to pursue laptop perfection. As X300 came close to the finish line, it collided head-on with Applee(tm)s super-slim MacBook Aire"-with surprising results.

In the Information Technologies industry there are few domains less understood than Database Administration.People keep asking what are the responsibilities of a Database Administrator, what are the specific tasks and processes Database Administrators rely on to fulfill those responsibilities and, by which rules Database Administrators abide to deal with whatever they do.Some people ask those questions out of simple curiosity, others because they are in or close to a DBA role, others because they have to deal with DBAs in a user, developer, management, etc. capacity and, want to have a better understanding of the DBA world.Everyone has its own reasons to ask questions about the database administration world; questions are always the same.This book intends to answer those questions.This is a technology agnostic book meaning that it applies to the field of database administration in general rather than focusing on any specific database vendor technology in particular.
