About Allen Iverson, About the Answer

The Jordan Crossover

He was “The Answer”, and the superstar of the NBA, and all the fames and reputations went to that Jordan crossover, but unfortunately, fell down. Allen Iverson, the use-to-be Philadelphia adorable leader, “has hit the rock bottom, and he hasn’t just accepted it yet”. Even though AI wanted to come back to NBA, he hasn’t received the olive branch from any team yet.

Speaking of Allen Iverson, he has left us so many impressive moments. Crossing over Jordan, stepping over Tyrron Lue, and many other ankle-breaking crossovers, he is a talented player on the NBA playground, but not a good one on his life. He has earned $200 million dollars during the last 15 years, but no savings, that’s really incredible. And after the divorce proceedings in 2012, AI shouted to his ex-wife, “I don’t even have money for the cheeseburger”, that was really tragic, and I’m sure most of the AI’s fans will never believe their idol has been in such an embarrass situation. However, Allen Iverson is 100% for his misfortune. He was extravagant, and had no idea of how to manage his money, so he broke very fast. It’s true that Iverson grew too fast to became the superstar, and fell down to the cruel reality with nothing left. Fans of AI still hope he can make through it, but things are not that good.

Been out of NBA for nearly 3 years, Iverson found himself hard to come back. In 2010, AI went away due to the “personal reasons”, and then showed up in China and Turkey. All we have ever known is that he has met some deep troubles. Iverson played for money during a long period of time to clean his debts, but the debts are such a big number. Now he’s looking forward to an opportunity to play on the NBA playground, and wants a start-over. That’s really a piece of exciting news to the fans of AI, they have waited all these years for “The Answer” coming back. They are still eager to take a look at the excellent moves that AI makes, and still want to watch his crossovers and shoots. But the truth is, AI is already 38 years old, and few teams, want to accept a 38-year-old player, even though that player has a glorious past. If some teams accept Allen Iverson, he may only be a role player for a long period. It won’t be easy for an All-Star MVP to make through, but if AI can come back to NBA, I believe he will adjust himself for it.

The Answer is still the one, he is eyeing to make a comeback, but we should have learned something from him. As far as I am concerned, the most important part is managing our money well. Gambling, drinking, and other extravagancies will only leave us unaffordable for the cheeseburger. Also, Self-control is an important part. We should control ourselves keep away from the temptations that may make us break. As grown-ups, we should have the abilities to tell right from wrong. What’s more, you guys will never forget the tattoo on AI’s neck, the Chinese mandarin character – Loyalty. Be loyal to the people we love and people who love us, and be loyal to the career we want to carry on. That’s what I have learned from AI and his story.

Let’s pray if you also hope Allen Iverson is able to come back to NBA. Making a Flash video and upload to Youtube to deliver your best wishes seems to be a good way, if AI ever has a chance to watch it, he may get to know that here are still many people supporting him.

YouTube to Lumia 920: Lumia 920

Desktop IE 10 adds Flash Player as plugin but Metro IE 10 doesn’t. As a consequence, users may find it a fancy story to play Flash on Nokia Lumia 920.

Top 5 Anticipations about Microsoft Surface Pro

When it is released in summer 2013, Surface RT bore lofty expectations to be an iPad killer. However, the killer now turns out to be a joker after it was lagged far behind by iPad tablets in sales volume. The same story goes to Windows 8 who sees an increase in market share that is far less than one has expected. Therefore, all the pressure is now on the shoulder of Microsoft Surface Pro. Surface Pro not only needs to send Microsoft the power to challenge Apple in tablet market but also helps Windows 8 rob more shares in operating system field.

Surface Pro

Therefore, with praises, doubts and anticipations, Microsoft Surface Pro was finally released to the market a few hours ago. Supporters are cheering and doubters are taking wait-and-see approaches. In fact, there are only two choices left for Surface Pro, to be a killer of Windows 8 or to be a savor. Generally speaking, the fate of Surface Pro mainly keens on its abilities to fulfill customers’ anticipations. Therefore, this post has collected top 5 anticipations about Microsoft Surface Pro.

Surface Pro Anticipation 1: Good compatibility

Surface Pro Anticipation: Compatibility

An important reason that prevents Surface RT from being a market hit is its awful compatibility. Surface RT adds no support to all the programs that can run on previous Windows systems. It means users can only enjoy those newly designed apps on Surface RT.  Moreover, lacking a platform for third-party apps like iTunes, Surface RT can only make use of limited apps. To make it worse, some of those apps are even poorly designed. However, it is said that as an Intel core driven tablet, Surface Pro can be compatible to almost all Windows programs. Therefore, it can be generally viewed as a Windows laptop that is much easier to take with. Moreover, the battery that can last for five to six hours is much better than the battery of most laptops.

Surface Pro Anticipation 2: Fully baked Windows 8

Surface Pro Anticipation: System

Windows RT devices and Windows 8 mobiles are not quite popular in the market because they are only equipped with disabled Windows 8 systems. When users think they can manage certain tasks with Surface RT, they become quite angry to find out that they can’t. For example, IE 10 shall be able to support Adobe Flash. However, users are only allowed to play Flash contents on Surface RT from those trusted sites. To make it worse, Windows 8 users can not even watch online Flash with Metro IE 10. However, theoretically speaking, the fully baked Windows 8 will help Surface Pro users to get rid of those troubles because users can download Adobe Flash Player as plugin for IE 10.

Surface Pro Anticipation 3: More retail stores

Surface Pro Anticipation: Store

Another reason that leads to the failure of Surface RT is its wrong market strategy. Microsoft is only willing to cooperate with big retail stores like Best Buy and Amazon to promote Surface RT. As a consequence, in many areas, even though lovers want to buy the tablet, they can’t find appropriate ways. Moreover, the limitation in the number of authorized retail stores has killed the possibilities of innovative marketing strategies. According to recent rumors that Microsoft is planning to grant more retail stores the right to sell Surface Pro. This not only promotes sales volume of Surface Pro but also gives consumers more choices.

Surface Pro Anticipation 4: Colorful touch cover

Surface Pro Anticipation: Touch cover

A most innovative point of Surface Pro lies in its touch cover which can be used as either protective case or physical keyboard. Therefore, once the touch cover can be more attractive, there is a bigger chance for Surface Pro to sell itself. It is said that Surface Pro will be equipped with colorful touch cover where consumers can trace fashionable elements. Once it is true, it really makes the Microsoft tablet much more attractive. Moreover, Microsoft is also working on to make the touch cover more comfortable for consumers to operate.

Surface Pro Anticipation 5: High security

Surface Pro Anticipation: Security

The latest scandals have made the poor situations of Windows RT even worse. Days after some hackers cracks down Windows RT, Microsoft still fails to provide a good solution. Then recent news came that a bug has appeared in Windows RT system that can be only solved by restart the device repeatedly. Therefore, the system security of Surface Pro turns out to be an anticipated topic. However, it seems that high security will become the anticipation for Surface Pro that is not hard to fulfill. According to some test, even without anti-virus software, Windows 8 Pro still does best in system security.
