- Rosie May - Best Career book I've readIf you want to know how to get a job, this is the book to have. This book doesn't just give you a 1 dimensional to do list (i.e. wear a navy suit to the interview), it delves into different factors and explanations behind the job market. He also gives you practical pointers and great advice.
- I. P. Frehley "Nightoddity" - Simply awesome...I actually haven't read this book. I just think it's simply awesome that someone chose to write an expose about the telecom industry! Seriously, I mean it costs mere pennies to transmit a message from Earth to Mars, yet AT&T (for example) charges $.20 to send a text message on Earth!
In an article on extremetech dot com, they say that "...Verizon Wireless and AT&T will both charge $0.20 per text message if you don't buy a texting plan from them. Even at a more conservative pricing of five cents per message, that means the carriers are charging around $383,000 per gigabyte. By comparison, the total cost for the Mars Global Surveyor to send a gigabyte back to Earth, is only $284,000. This includes the $200 million cost of launching the satellite, and nine years of operational costs incurred by its NASA crew. That's right -- it costs US tax payers $99,000 less to send a gigabyte of data from Mars than it does for cellphone users to send a gigabyte worth of 160 character text messages.
Rick Falkvinge's math shows that it would take 7.67 million text messages to make up a gigabyte. That may sound like a lot, but consider that in the US alone we have over 300 million cellphones in use as of this past June. Worldwide, we have over six billion mobile phones in operation. That's a lot of potential text messages. After doing some rough calculations about what it actually costs telcos to transfer data, Falkvinge comes up with a shocking 15,000,000,000% markup on text messages. That's a tough pill to swallow even at a tiny fraction of the current markup."
The information above just comes from a website, I'll bet this book has a lot more interesting information. I'll have to read it when I have time!
Super interesting stuff... if this book even comes close to that degree of expose', it's no wonder paid consultants for the Telecoms are giving this book poor reviews!
