Sometime in late 2011, we published a blog-post on the effect of cyber bullies and how to eliminate/get rid of them by beating them at their own game.
Some of the strongest points from this argument were as follows:-
- Cyber bullies Thrive on Reaction to Provocation and Conflict – The minute you start to curse out a cyber bully, you are fuelling their urge and interest to pound you even more. They get a kick out of having you react and throw tantrums. Trust that there are very idle people out there that pick out your rant as a weakness and you will never hear the end of it.
- Cyber bullies Are Generally Weak – The Bully behavior is normally deep-rooted Read more »
The Biblical story of the tower of Babel tells a story about how the whole world once spoke the same language and they intended to build themselves a tall stone step-ladder that could reach the sky. The story then goes that God confused their tongues forcing them to abandon their cause. They were apparently unable to proceed as their common language prompted hem to be able to accomplish a lot.
Much in this way, the inception of Social Media can be projected to have similar impact on people in a way that man can achieve so much if like minded people are grouped together.
The introduction of the internet brought development of man’s communication from the use of traditional media like newspapers and Electronic Media devices like the transistor radio and television sets. Social Media, and new media largely, is arguably the best thing after a bread slicer. Read more »
InMobi, recently released insights on Kenyan shoppers and their behaviour particularly when making purchase decisions in retail shops. The research was based on a survey spread over a sample of 503 respondents across Greater Nairobi, Eldoret, Kisumu, Mombasa, Nakuru and Nyeri and a few other less prominent areas like rural towns.
Findings reveal that 65% of shoppers are influenced by their mobile phones when making a decision to buy groceries at a local supermarket. In specialty or boutique stores, consumers use mobile 34% of the time to augment their shopping experience, but the majority augment their shopping experience with a mobile phone when in malls or department stores; a larger 31% of respondents. Interestingly, 29% of consumers are using their mobile phones while shopping at street traders either to compare product prices to major retailers or check availability in those retailers. “The mobile phone has become the consumer’s constant companion and Read more »
The key to 2012 and success this year has got to be in the social space. Look at it this way, everyone is going social. If you are not, you’re probably going to lose out. Same goes for mobile. It isn’t a wonder that companies like Apple have numerously had top engineering department employees go out to bars and leave iPhone prototypes in bathrooms and on table tops. This has not happened once.
You see, the reason is that Apple understands social. How a product is going to be accepted into a market can be directly gauged by how a small user test group will take a new device. This is undoubtedly a brilliant Acceptance Testing tool. In 2012, more companies better jump on this though. No-use coming up with a product that would have been improved had say about 50 test group users played with it before hand. Ask Nokia, they know. Every-time they are about to launch a new product into the market, they give it a test run. This is why tweeps like @oyolla had the Nokia 700 prototype months before and @Mwirigi a Nokia E6 running Symbian Belle.
God said “Give and it shall come back to you.” He wasn’t lying.

We have waited for this for a long time and despite Nokia’s GM for the region, Kenneth Oyolla, flaunting one on his social timeline, you can now get yours if you live in the States as early as next month.
This baby is the only new Nokia device that runs MeeGo OS and is expected to cause a stir especially now that it hits the market alongside the much anticipated iPhone5.
It features a 3.9-inch AMOLED screen (resolution of 854 x 480 pixels) and a 1GHZ ARM processor to boost functionality of this all-gesture manipulated phone. The camera is an 8MP just like the Nokia C7-00.
A few other exciting features include;
>Operating system: Linux MeeGo
>Screen: 3.9-inch AMOLED capacitive 854 x 480 pixels
>Size: 116.45 x 61.2 x 12.1 mm
>Weight: 135 g
>Processor: ARM Cortex-A8 Model 1000 MHz TI OMAP 3630
>Graphic Processor: 2D/3D Graphics HW Accelerator with OpenGL ES 2.0 support
>Camera: 8 MP
>Talk time: up to 11 hours
>Standby time: up to 19 days
We expect it in the East African region sometime mid to late (14th – 31st) October. Expected retail is valued at 730USD (approximately 69,423KES).
