I've been working in small and large software startups for the last 20 years and currently have  the privilege of being the CEO of a startup, Storage Made Easy,  for the last 3 years.  With the advent of 2015 I have not doubt that there will be many people considering whether to take the plunge and commit to founding a startup. There are a diverse number of resources on the web all offering advice and to that mix I add 10 tips of my own. I've tried to keep them to things I wish I had known before commencing my own journey. 1. If you're not going solo, pick your partner carefully: Many people cast around for a partner or another person to build their startup with. This can be useful to help share risk but remember you have to share any reward it may generate also.

Will Palm Release Treo 700p In UK?

Will Palm Release Treo 700p In UK ? For a while now I've been alternating between two phones - the excellent K750i, and the Treo 650. From a Smartphone viewpoint the TREO 650 is the "almost device" - its "almost" the best smartphone I have ever used. The palm software is great, and innovative.
