Words aren't free anymore

Some people like to make money with Google Adwords advertising system, others like to male art out of it. Have a look at net art : adwords happening, this artist has a great idea to misuse the Google system while having fun. On a more serious side, reading this article allowed me to understand how Google adwords really works and the words pricing is very interesting.

The MBA best friend

Yeah, I can finally publish picture on this blog. So there it goes, first pic is your best friend you will have as a mba student.It's sad to say but you can break your leg, can lose your dog, your house can be on fire...these things are unimportant but if your laptop get broken and like me you've never done any backup because you believe in your good faith or you're too lazy to archives stuff then you will be in serious trouble!!!
And like every MBA's in the world, your school will kindly advise you to buy this ugly and heavy IBM for the same price as an equally performant but much nicer and lighter other brand of laptop. One advice for the new MBA students, don't order the IBM from abroad before you arrive like HEC advise its students but instead, wait and shop around and buy something nicer and lighter. I still can't believe I have been fooled and spend somthing like 3000$ on that thing.Posted by Hello
