Keep walking

Great year here with us at last,while   we set our mind  on the way forward,it is very imperative we forget our worries,regrets and disappointments as a result of resolutions we did not achieve.Just like the water flows and never come back,the old has to flow in us and embrace new beginning with so much zeal putting in  mind that  we cant change our past but we can do something to change our future.

The Matatu  that you  board every day has  a large windshield but only a relatively small rear view mirror. The implication is obvious: What happened in your past is not nearly as important as what is in your future. Where you are going is much more important than where you’ve been.

What is more important is to revive our  energy as we understand  that nothing is impossible, with high-self esteem, fortitude and above all focus on our mission.With this attributes we shall and can achieve our targets this new year 2015.

The race is not to the swift or the battle to the strong, nor does food come to the wise or wealth to the brilliant or favor to the learned; but time and chance happen to them all.This Might be your year.

pocket-lint/Luke Edwards – The next Microsoft Nokia Lumia could have Canon camera optics superior to the Lumia 1020

Microsoft has signed a deal with Canon that cross-licenses a lot of their patents. This could mean future Microsoft Nokia Lumia handsets have the smart processing and optic power of Canon crammed into them.

The Nokia Lumia 1020 with its 41-megapixel camera was, and probably still is, the best camera phone ever made. The unique way it pushed technology forward makes it still attractive even now when all other phones from its generation are dated. This patent sharing deal could mean a future Lumia that uses Canon’s impressive Digic processing power and more.

There is also a chance that Microsoft may decide to follow in the footsteps cameras.

Either way it’s great to see companies sharing patents to help push technological developments forward. Rather than fighting over them and slowing progress down for everyone.
