"Many are brought down by making a strategic error, of which there are six common varieties. There is the Do-It-All strategy, shorthand for failing to make real choices about priorities. The Don Quixote strategy unwisely attacks the company’s strongest competitor first. The Waterloo strategy pursues war on too many fronts at once. The Something-For-Everyone tries to capture every sort of customer at once, rather than prioritising. The Programme-Of-The-Month eschews distinctiveness for whatever strategy is currently fashionable in an industry. The Dreams-That-Never-Come-True strategy never translates ambitious mission statements into clear choices about which markets to compete in and how to win in them."
Fast and the Furious 6 - Extended Trailer
This movie is going to be insane in all of the best ways.
There are exactly 0 movies I am more excited for in 2013.
Perfect start to a Wednesday. Time to go make a playlist of every RHCP song in Rdio.

The HP Pavilion 14 Chromebook offers a 14-inch display, is powered by a 1.1GHz Intel Celeron Processor 847 and offers up to 4GB of RAM (2GB as standard), a 16GB SSD drive, HDMI output, three USB ports, SD card support and a built-in webcam for video chats, (via HP officially launches the HP Pavilion 14, its first Chromebook, for $329.99 - The Next Web)
So, I’ve been passively looking for a new computer for some time now. I am SO close to just getting a Chromebook and being done with it - I usually do my development on some other server, so the lack of a well-defined “local” is not that big of a deal for me. The lack of games sucks, but I own consoles, so not a dealbreaker.
The Chromebook seems like a computer that would work, it just wouldn’t be amazing. Can I live with that? Probably. Could I spent a bit more and get an awesome Mac Mini? Yes.
