Complexity/simplicity

Posted by Navin Harish - No Comments

When I as a child, we had a bar of soap. Shampoo was there sometimes and not sometimes, it was not a necessity and we managed to keep ourselves clean just fine. There used to be a single bottle of cold cream, used by the entire family. That was not our home specifically, that was how it was for most others as well because that was what was available in the market. Now, of course, things are different. There came a face wash, then it was a hand wash and now there is even a v-wash. You can search the net to see what the “v” in v-wash means. A bottle of cold cream has been replaced by moisturizer and it is not just one bottle, there is a different bottle for face, a different for your body different one for your feet and even a different one for day and for night.

Then we have people like Steve Jobs and Mark Zukerberg who wear the same clothes day after day to avoid an unnecessary complexity.

Copy the books, but not the movies

Posted by Navin Harish - No Comments

It is ironic that while the government has declared a 3 year imprisonment and/or Rs.3Lacs fine, Delhi High Court has allowed the photocopy shops to sell photocopies of Books.

An actor who drives around in a Bentley, lives in a Bungalow in a city where even flats are not affordable needs to get his income protected, but an author who spent a lot more on his education and makes only a fraction of what an actor makes should give away his hardwork for free.

photocopied-books

“Even in today’s world of self-publishing, blogs, etc., the publisher remains relevant because of its role to be able to provide reliability and authenticity to the information and knowledge it disseminates.” Why would a publisher invest if they are not able to get returns due to practices such as photocopying?
-Sumeet Malik, director, EBC Publishing Pvt. Ltd

Don’t miss the name of the judge who gave this verdict.

Thinking of redesigning your logo?

Posted by Navin Harish - No Comments

“It takes 100 Million dollars and 10 years to associate a symbol with a company.” This is what Steve Jobs said while recounting his experience of getting a logo designed for next computers.

“It takes 100 Million dollars and 10 years to associate a symbol with a company.”
-Steve Jobs

All the great logos we see have been through that journey which is why they seem so great, the Nike swoosh, the Adidas’ flower, Mercedes’ three pointed star and the spirit of ecstasy were nowhere as aspirational as they are now, after completing that journey.

logo-redesign

Smart logo Redesign decisions

McDonald’s, Visa, Google, Domino’s, Pepsi didn’t have dramatic changes and the basic symbols remained the same and identifiable for their customers.

apple-logo-redesign

Apple had a dramatic change in their logo but that was before they had gone on their 10 year, 100 Million Dollars journey so the impact was minimal.

So the next time when you want to redesign you logo, think about it once again. Cosmetic change here and there are fine if the basic symbol remains identifiable but if you are planning to change it completely, be sure that you are ready for a 10 year journey and have budget of 100 Million dollars.

Money and boredom are inversely proportional

Posted by Navin Harish - No Comments

This is fascinating. I have watched this more than once and I guess I will watch it again.

You have millions of followers, and your assets are in billion, what is stopping you from blowing a small fortune on shit like this. WHo gives a fuck if this makes any sense, you wanted to do it and you did it.

Louis CK has done a stand up piece on how people with money can do all sort of crazy shit.

Scott Adams also made a cartoon once wondering how rich people can ever get bored.

This is a live example of that.

RIP Gene Wilder

RIP Gene WIlder

In 2005 when the movie Charlie and the Chocolate Factory came out, I was discussing with Rohan “There was a movie earlier as well. It was called Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory”. He had not heard of it so he asked me if it was good. “I have only seen bits and and pieces of it. It has the same guy who was in See no Evil, Hear no Evil and the Woman in Red” I told him, unable to recall Gene Wilder’s name. “Oh! he sounds like the actor who will be perfect for the role.” said Rohan with a laugh.

I enjoyed watching your movies Gene, may you rest in peace.

Kali Peeli can surge it’s price, why not Ola and Uber?

Posted by Navin Harish - No Comments

Why is there a problem in surge pricing by Ola and Uber? Do we not have it in the regular black and yellow cabs and auto rickshaws?
When was the last time you paid my the meter? I don’t speak of other states but Delhi is one state where I usually travel on a fare negotiated before I get into a cab, not by meter. So if they can spike their price, why can’t Ola and Uber?

Got Options?

Posted by Navin Harish - No Comments

Steve Jobs’ claim to fame is making memorable products and Paul Rand’s claim to fame is making memorable logos. So what happens when they meet?

Steve Jobs: We want to make a logo for our new company “Next”. Can you work on it and show me some options?
Paul Rand: No, I will solve your problem for you and you will pay me. You don’t have to use the solution. If you want options go talk to other people.

Solving problems, not creating options

I will solve your problem for you and you will pay me. You don’t have to use the solution. If you want options go talk to other people.

Daring robbery in 16 flats in Gaur City in broad daylight

Posted by Navin Harish - No Comments

On 5th of January, 16 flats in the 1st Avenue of Gaur City, Noida Extension were broken into and robbed. The fact that the robbers managed to break into not one or two but 16 flats suggest that

  1. This was a well-organized heist – you can escape being caught once, twice or thrice but managing to hit 16 houses and getting away with it is not luck but careful planning and implementation with surgical precision.
  2. Breaking into 16 houses in the same day is not something a single team can do. Timing is essence; you want to do it all together so that by the time people realize it and raise an alarm, you are already away.
  3. The houses that were broken into were occupied by working couple and they were broken into when they were away. Having this information means this is an inside job. Someone or some people from security, contractor – private and Gaur’s, maids etc were involved in providing that information
  4. They managed to rob a house which was vacant for only 2 hours which means they knew what they were looking for and were confident that they can do it in a small window of time
  5. All the houses were entered from the main door they broke wooden doors and some Steel doors as well and no one heard a thing. This means the people who did this are professionals and have done this many times before as well

Now What?

To create a list of suspects, a list of all the people missing from work today can be compiled. This includes maids, Gaur’s contractors like painters etc., private contractors like carpenters and security staff.

Leonardo DeCaprio to make movie on Volkswagen diesel scandal

Posted by Navin Harish - No Comments

leonardo-dicaprio

It is impossible not to sympathies with criminals like Frank Abagnale and Jordan Belfort when they are portrayed by Leonardo DiCaprio. Instead of seeing what an assholes those characters were we leave the cinema feeling sorry for Jordan Belfort because he lost all he had, even if that “all he had” was made by conning an average person.

Now Leonardo is making a movie on Volkswagen scam. I hope I will not leave the cinema feeling sorry for Volkswagen and Martin Winterkorn.
