It's finally here - the iPhone 3G. No, we mean that literally. It's finally in my house and boy, i am we excited! GPS, HSDPA purring under the new iPhone hood with a hefty number of software enhancements.
But all them software goodies are available for the first-gen iPhone too - so is it worth the fuss? It may as well be, but we never know before we take it out for a spin. For a country like India with a hefty population, there is always a craze for having the latest gizmo. With the apples iphone having touch screen and many other function, forwarding of text message is an error. with its high price tag, it may go unnoticed. Unlocking needs money... I personaaly feel that iphine is a bane for india because people in India don't want to spend additional money after buying their phone. So with i phones sake throw it out! buddy.

Positive Thinking: The Best Attitude
Often when we have to interact with a group of people, the most attractive appealing person is the person who is cheerful, has a smiling face anal behaves as if he or she is enjoying every moment. Such people have an optimistic outlook on life. They are the ones with a positive attitude. In contrast to this could he the people who are focusing on the negative aspects of everything. Such pessimists, the ones with negative attitudes do not attract others in the same way.
Having a positive attitude means getting on with the job on hand. It means not brooding over what's gone before, not fearing too much what might happen in the future, if there is a problem, positive thinkers quickly think of ways to solve it. Passing the buck, blaming other people or circumstances are excuses and alibis such positive people avoid, if such a positive thinker alone cannot solve a problem, he or she seeks help from competent people. To have a positive attitude means not to feel that it is below ones dignity to seek assistance.
Of course, even the greatest optimist cannot smile all the time and feel good. The ups and downs of life cause everyone to feel a touch of melancholy now and then when everything seems hopeless. But developing a positive attitude helps us bounce back from every challenge and difficult experience, ready to face whatever life brings. To get best out of life, we owe it to ourselves to approach everything - work, friendships and relationships, with a positive attitude.
