Pranav Mistry, salah satu orang hebat Samsung (bosnya proyek Gear) saat ditanya mengapa memilih (bekerja di) Samsung, bukan Google atau Apple (Via Reddit):

Google, Apple, Microsoft are all great companies. But, there are several aspects of Samsung that attracted me the most.

DOMAIN – Samsung product portfolio goes beyond smartphones, tablets and TVs. Samsung makes home appliances, such as washing machines, microwaves, vacuum cleaners and more. Samsung is one of the largest ship manufactures in the world. It is one of the most advanced construction company. The products and the components Samsung makes goes in almost every industry from automobile to agriculture industry. I really like this breadth of impact that my work can make by working in such multidisciplinary company.

GLOBAL REACH – Samsung is a global corp. Of course Google and Apple also are, but Samsung’s reach and impact at every level of society is incomparable. Form high-end infrastructure to feature phones in developing nations. There is more reach to every sector and every class of society.

HARDWARE – Personally, I am a big fan of hardware. I love making things, making objects that does magic. Samsung is leader in engineering R&D. Material Science, new components, new processes of manufacturing, u name it. Samsung also supplies these basic ingredient technologies to companies such as Google and Apple. Very few know that the powerful processor in their iPhones or many other components are in fact invented and made by Samsung. My love in hardware research, robotics, future of key ingredient technologies is what I enjoy working on at Samsung.

IAmArnold… Ask me anything.

Begitu membuka front page Reddit, tiba-tiba saja perhatian saya langsung tertuju pada jumlah upvote yang mencapai 5000 lebih plus 10.000+ komentar dari /IAmA. Setelah saya perhatikan baik-baik, ternyata IAmAnya Arnold Schwarzenegger, OMG!

Segeralah saya buka dan memposting beberapa kalimat yang menunjukkan betapa ngefansnya saya 😀 Sebenarnya tidak telat-telat amat, ada sekitar 3 jam berlalu, tapi berhubung beliau pasti sangat sibuk ya saya harus maklum kalau postingan saya tidak dibalas, apalagi melihat last postnya yang “2 hours ago” langsung down deh 🙁

Tapi…

Aaargh!!! Saya menyesal terlambat buka /IAmA, gara-gara terlalu lama di /Wordpress!

Bagaimana tidak kecewa, ada beberapa user yang di-reply pake gambar buatan Arnold langsung dari iPadnya. Misalnya si Baron_Brouhaha, jlarue dan lokochileno. Huft.. kayaknya saya harus kirim PM 😛
