A product that I have been involved with has got released into the market.
As part of the user manual and other technical guides, we provide the technical specification for the product.
This includes the operating temperature range and other related details.
One such attribute is the operating altitude.
This gives the altitude range in metres within which the product can be used.
Now, its upper limit is some xxxx metres.
After reading this particular piece of information, a customer got back with a comment, “Oh, so this means that your product will not run in Colorado?”.
(Colorado, seemingly is at a much higher altitude than the specification!)
I found that funny and interesting.
Dhi only one jumps tracks.
(Track1 —–jump—-> Track 2)
A normal software company in India, on an average, charges its phirang customers at the rate of $20 per hour.
Now thats around Rs. 900 per hour. (1$ being approximated to Rs. 45)
8 hours a day = Rs. 7200 per day.
5 days a week = Rs. 36000 per week.
4 weeks a month = Rs. 1.44 Lakhs per month.
12 months a year = Rs. 17.28 Lakhs per year.
If you are an IT professional and drawing a salary of anything more than 17.28 Lakhs per annum, you are causing a strain on your company because its paying you more than what its earning through you.
Your company is doomed.
Track 2 is nice.
