From MRM to Razorfish!

Well, I’ve left MRM//McCann for greener pastures — I’m now Presentation Layer Engineer at Razorfish Platforms!

I was in the middle of refactoring my project back in April for mobile/responsive layout, when Razorfish Platforms called. It sounded like they really wanted me, so I paused my project, and reactivated my resume at all the major job sites to get a decent sampling of prospective offers.

Razorfish’s offer turned out to be the best, and my other online research also corroborated their elite position in the marketing industry — AdWeek’s only repeat Top-10 Agency in the last decade. So, toward the end of May, I decided to take it.

It’s been a great 5 years with MRM//McCann, but lack of upward mobility finally prompted me to make the move. I’m very grateful for their faith in me — I had only been developing websites part-time in my last job but they convinced me to give full-time web development a try. Without them, I wouldn’t have been noticed by Razorfish!

I’m now back at the old salary I used to earn before my 2009 layoff, and things are only gonna get better from here, professionally and beyond!

iPhone Productivity Apps

I came across Ken Hess’ article “Top iOS Apps lists not boding well for BYOD” on ZDNet, and noticed a nice list* of productivity apps for iPhone:

  1. Citrix Receiver
  2. VNC
  3. RDP
  4. vSphere Client
  5. iSSH
  6. Quickoffic
  7. FileApp Pro
  8. Fing
  9. Printer Pro
  10. Dragon Dictation
  11. VMware View
  12. Fing
  13. Ubuntu One Files
  14. iSQLQuery
  15. PlainText
  16. Dropbox
  17. Time Zones
  18. hypOps
  19. SharePlus Lite
  20. Zoho Docs

Ken’s got a point.  If iPhone users want to bring their iPhones to work, they’d be well-advised to remove the games or at least move them off the default/home screen.

What I don’t understand though is why he singled out iOS, as if there are no games available for the Android or Android users don’t download games.  (???)

I added a comment to his article, so maybe he’ll respond.  :::fingers crossed:::

*DISCLAIMER: I don’t have an iPhone, so I can’t vouch for the validity of the list.  If you have any questions/comments on the apps selection, please contact Ken directly — there’s a Contact link at the bottom of his article.
