VTech's V.Reader...for Geek kids

I usually don't write about kids stuff...but this time I have to make an exception...you'll see...my daughter loves my IPhone and that's a good thing...she learned to use the touch screen, enter the program I download specially for her and stuff...but when I need to check my mail, read a book or make a phone call...it's not that funny and cute anymore -;)

So, the other day my wife and I were looking for some toys for our daughter...a toy laptop actually...and we just get freeze when we discover the VTech's V.Reader, a geeky little toy with guess what...touch screen! and the most important thing for us...it reads stories, with graphics, games, dictionary...what else could be asked for? I grabbed my credit card and bought it right away...along with a Dora the Explorer game -:)

Yesterday, she used it for the first time...and I can tell you, when I took my IPhone out, she didn't even look at it, she just wanted to watch and listen the story all over again...best gift we ever gave her...we can't be more happy -:D

But sure...the magic never stops...if you have an SD Card, you can go online, register you V.Reader and get 6 coins that you can use to download more stories! 1 coin per story, so basically you have a free game cartridge, and 6 games to download...

If your kid is 2 to 6 years...then this is a perfect Christmas present...that's for sure -;)

Good resumes...bad resumes...and resumes from Hell?

While attending SAP Inside Track Newton Square 2010, my good friend Jon Reed from Jonerp.com told me about this book "Resumes from Hell". At first...I didn't knew what to expect, but the name really caught my attention...I was decided to buy it, but as the SAP Community and The Fellowship of the SAP Mentors in so strong, Jon gave me the book for free...along with his signature and a great message -:)

So, I read the book...and it really blown my mind away...those are real resumes created but real people...and as reality is stranger than fiction...those resumes are the worst I have ever seen...some of them are going to make smile, other are going to make you laugh and some others are going to want you to pick up the guy and punch him in the face (You can't hit a lady you know...).

I really enjoyed reading the book, because by seeing how crappy some resumes can be, you can actually took your own and start doing some gardening that would lead to at least...a decent one -:)

You can...sorry...you must buy this book...so here's the link:

Buy Resumes from Hell!

I think it's good karma, to once in a while write a post sending thanks to all the people that for better or for worse have helped me to become the professional I am today...of course...I can put them all...but a small list is better than nothing -:)

Not in particular order...just...thank you so much for being my friends! And please, don't stop bugging me when it comes to help me out -;)
