Appreciation from my manager

Continuation to my pervious post about getting appreciation from the delivery expert with whom I was working on weekends, I was happy about the fact that he has dropped appreciation note to me with my manager and his onsite counterpart. However, till end of the day my manager didn’t even acknowledge my appreciation note and usually for other teammates he drops note to the entire team about the appreciation being received by the team member and note being described by the delivery expert. For my case he didn’t even acknowledge the fact that not only offshore delivery manager appreciated my effort, even onsite delivery manager acknowledged my work and dropped appreciation note to me. But to my surprise at end of the day, my manager replied to both onsite and offshore delivery manager stating “Thanks" about recognizing my work and was happy I was able meet their requirements. In addition to the note to the offshore and onsite managers, my manager even looped in business unit head to the mail and his super manager to the mail thread. This mail was a huge surprise because looping in business unit head happens only once in a while and it happened to me after very long time and he had also forwarded the mail to my entire team about my appreciation.

Submission of opportunity with new delivery expert

Now I have sent the solution deck to this delivery expert, which I had framed based on my understanding of the client requirements and from my previous experience. I was expecting some response from the delivery expert on the next day and I was completely taken aback by her action. I got no update, response or acknowledgement from the delivery expert and was checking mails from the morning for the update. I reached office and was still hoping to get some updates or feedback from the delivery expert and was completely shocked to see no updates from the delivery expert. After few moments I called the delivery expert to check on the update and to review the solution so we could share it with the accounts team for submission. The delivery expert picked the call and was mentioning that she was busy and would revert back within next one hour with updates and all open items would be completed before that end of the day. I didn’t knew all the promises and commitment given by this delivery expert would go in vain and I had to still push to get the updates.

Continuation to iPhone launch review

Follow up to the review of recently concluded iPhone launch event, I was little bit skeptical about the lineup apple has launched this year. The prices for iPhone Xs seem to be too high for a phone and apple being accused of throttling older phones, the current generation phones would be obsolete the very next year. Apple should have handled battery throttling issue differently altogether, as older iPhone users like me felt that the reliability of iPhone has gone for a toss and it's a waste of money to invest on such unworthy phone. Now back to the launch event, it’s unreasonable to price iPhone Xs at higher end and expecting people to buy the phone. As there was one more iPhone launched in this event named “iPhone XR” and few differentiators for this phone would be LCD display and single focus camera. Most reasonable people and user who were on tight budget would definitely opt for iPhone XR as the option made more sense than the other phones because it runs on same A12 bionic processor as other high-end phones.

13. Confusion between iPhone and Android

I own an iPhone 6 and been using it for more than 3+ years, I cannot commit entirely that I have been satisfied with device nor dissatisfied with the device. My phone was eligible for battery replacement and got replaced under Apple’s battery replacement program. Post battery replacement, I didn’t have enough reasons to buy upgraded smartphone, as only issue I had with my phone was the battery and it works like a charm now. However, the most important and complicated issue is all about performance of old phones. I think I can compromise on the performance of the phone as it hardly makes a difference of only about few seconds and again I can wait for few seconds to open the application, rather than spending few thousand on new phone and paying up the EMI’s. At times, I was really been intrigued by my friends and colleagues about affordable Android phones performing lot better. But the only issue I have is all about those affordable android phones was the reliability and longevity. Continue reading at “G R Team Sites”

Another worst day for India’s cricket

Post getting dismissed for a very low score in the rain hit day, I was hopeful of India’s fightback in the bowling department in the 3rd day. But to my disappointment, India’s bowling was again humiliated by the English batsmen. I don’t understand how English batsmen were able to score runs at ease and India’s batsmen looked like they were batting on the dynamite pitch. Most cricket experts and old players convey that England had the best possible conditions and while India were batting, the conditions favored their bowlers. One of the cricket experts whom I follow on twitter even conveyed that if India batted for few more overs without losing wickets, they would have got best possible conditions for their batsmen. I completely agree on the comment or views, as why can’t the Indian batsmen been able to play conscious shots for few overs and keep their concentration on the game. However, whatever may be the suggestion or views about the game, now I am just hoping India’s batsmen put up a good fight and were able to at least save the game by the draw or at any rate make England to bat for the second innings.
