Steve Jobs confirmed as WWDC 2010 keynote speaker
By Gerald Lynch, Tech Digest - Steve Jobs has been confirmed by Apple as the keynote speaker at their annual WWDC  (Worldwide Developers Conference) 2010 event in San Franscisco on June 7th.

That really isn't much of a surprise, given that Jobs pops up every time there's a new Apple product to launch. He was front and centre for the iPhone 3G reveal and earlier this year the iPad too, and with the iPhone 4G an almost dead cert to feature, who else would Apple choose to showcase their latest and greatest?

However, the whole buzz around the event is highly deflated this year, as a number of

By Robert Pagliarini, Los Angeles Times - It takes guts and determination to invest the other eight hours into improving yourself or starting a business. If you've taken night classes, started a blog or have participated at Toastmasters, you know you are putting yourself on the line.

It's hard work and there is ample room for disappointment, rejection and, yes, dare I say, failure?

It's the F-word that is more obscene and crude than the other, more well known F-word. What is our obsession with failure? People see failure as a colossal mistake. It's not.

When I start a new venture, I feel like I have nothing to lose and

Four habits of highly effective companies
By Joe McKendrick, SmartPlanet.com - The fallout of the Icelandic volcano on world travel and business was totally unexpected, and it’s likely no business on the planet had considered the possibility in its risk management scenarios.

That’s why adaptability is such an essential part of business these days. And the businesses that are best able to deal with volatility and uncertainty are those that have the deepest commitment to positive change.

That’s the message from Harvard professor and business author Rosabeth Moss Kanter, who is headlining this week’s IBM Impact conference in Las Vegas, which I’m attending. Among businesses these days, there is an emerging class of

Americans Should Re-learn the Art of Customer Service from Asia
NewsReleaseWire.com (press release) - It's no surprise that customer service has been on the decline for the past ten years in America. Many company executives are quick to blame the economic downturn for the decline in service. But, frankly, that's just a weak excuse for those companies that are unwilling to spend the money to train their employees in the art of customer service. But, there's a deeper problem that is causing the decline in customer service among American companies. And, it's a two-headed monster!

Travels throughout the world have given investor and author Jim Rogers a unique perspective on the business of life
By David Adams, Poder 360 - Famed investor Jim Rogers retired in 1980 at age 37 and set off to discover the world on his motorbike.

A quixotic quest, perhaps. But Rogers has a well-rehearsed answer to that. “It makes you a better investor if you know the world,” he says.

Offbeat as his style may be, it’s hard to argue with Rogers’ record. Just as the Motorcycle Diaries of Argentine-born guerrilla icon Che Guevara became a bible for leftists, Rogers’ biker wisdom is legendary among investors.

“He’s completely unorthodox. He’s a globetrotter, gonzo-financier who always tries to stay ahead of the curve,” says Ian McCluskey, veteran Latin America
