9 Excellent Tools for Design Mockups So you've just taken some killer photos with your new DSLR, or you captured a great video with your iPhone — what's next?

Android Performance Case Study, Falcon Pro by Romain Falcon Pro I recently installed Falcon Pro, a new Twitter client, on my Nexus 4. I really enjoy using this application but I noticed a few hiccups here and there while using it and it seemed that scrolling the main timeline did not yield a perfectly stable framerate. I dug a little bit with some of the tools and techniques I use every day at work and I was able to quickly find some of the reasons why Falcon Pro does not behave as well as it can. My goal in this article is to show you how you can track down and fix performance issues in an application, even if you don’t have its source code. A word about performance Android 4.1 put focus on performance with Project Butter and it brought new performance analysis tools, such as systrace. Performance analysis is often a complex task that requires a lot of experience and a deep knowledge of one’s tools, hardware, APIs, etc. Confirming my suspicions $ adb shell dumpsys gfxinfo $ .

Advice from startup executives on work-life balance Emily Hickey, CMO of Hashable, mother Her career: Emily Hickey is chief marketing officer of Hashable. Before that the Stanford graduate was chief operating officer of PhotoShelter, cofounder of Yeah! Wireless, and VP of product management at Hot Jobs. Her advice: I think being a working parent at a startup is a pretty tall order... For one, you need not just a great and helpful spouse, but a great marriage. Also, you need to love your job and your company. You also need to be a complete workaholic with a lot of energy. You also need a great outside support system. To sum it up, there's nothing you can do at a startup to lessen the volume of work or smooth out the emotional cycles, and being a parent is completely consuming and erratic on top of that. One thing I've personally spent a lot of time on in the past couple years is meditating and really working on that as a way to keep my mentality light.

Six Keys to Being Excellent at Anything - Tony Schwartz by Tony Schwartz | 2:21 PM August 24, 2010 I’ve been playing tennis for nearly five decades. I love the game and I hit the ball well, but I’m far from the player I wish I were. I’ve been thinking about this a lot the past couple of weeks, because I’ve taken the opportunity, for the first time in many years, to play tennis nearly every day. My game has gotten progressively stronger. And almost certainly could be, even though I’m 58 years old. During the past year, I’ve read no fewer than five books — and a raft of scientific research — which powerfully challenge that assumption (see below for a list). We’ve found, in our work with executives at dozens of organizations, that it’s possible to build any given skill or capacity in the same systematic way we do a muscle: push past your comfort zone, and then rest. Like everyone who studies performance, I’m indebted to the extraordinary Anders Ericsson, arguably the world’s leading researcher into high performance. Pursue what you love.

Six failed businesses on, Dropmyemail’s John Fearon says, “I’m amazing” “I’m a good boss, I really am,” John Fearon, founder and CEO of DropMySite, tells me, in full earshot of his employee at their office in Block 71, Ayer Rajar Crescent, considered the nexus of Singapore’s technology startup scene. He was making a point about how he’d be a bad subordinate but a good leader who is comfortable with starting things. “I’m one of those that can go into the room and self-combust.” With all his self-confidence (whenever he speaks at conferences, he start with,”Hi, I’m amazing”), it’s easy to assume that John, who comes from South Africa, has a string of successful businesses to stand on. Not at all. I prod him about the number of failed businesses he had. (Photo: John being featured in an Amazon Web Services video) John struggles to find his words, which is a rarity. His first business collapsed after six months, burning through the $3,000 that his parents gave him as initial capital. John worked on an online nursing startup next. “It could go broke or go crazy.

The study becomes extremely interesting when its findings are applied to products sold online. Mr. On the Pottery Barn Web site, people engaged with the product photos for extended periods of time.

Does China Have an Executive-Compensation Problem? Since China opened up to the world with its sweeping economic reforms in the late 1970s, and especially in the past decade as private-sector enterprises have mushroomed, the model of executive compensation in the country has increasingly mirrored ones in the U.S. and Europe. How is it, then, that Chinese executives are paid only a fraction of the compensation earned by their American counterparts in companies of equal size in the same industries? Or are they? In China, executive compensation above tens of millions of yuan (1 yuan equals 16¢) would be seen as astronomical and would cause an uproar. In 2007, the latest year studied, China Stone Management Consulting Group used compensation disclosures in companies’ annual reports to analyze data on executive compensation at China’s 200 largest public companies by market capitalization. On the other hand, executive compensation in China has always been shrouded in mystery. Indirect Compensation
