The Power of Outsuorcing Expands to Mortgages

Since outsourcing has gained much popularity in companies and organizations, almost every skill and process can be outsourced now.

What used to be conceived as potential hazards such as fear of sensitive information leakage, off-site uncontrolability, miscommunication and lack of efficiency and urgency are now but things of the past. The barriers and misconceptions have been broken and now welcomed as a business blessing.

I used to know only of call centers who where mainly offshore outsourcing warehousing hundreds of employees trained to act as an extension of the foreign companies. When you asked someone who worked in a call center what they did, they'd say, they'd talk to customers and clients the whole day.

Nowadays, oursourcing has expanded not only to include customer support via voice or data, but to include tasks based on particular skillsets.

One of them is Mortgage Outsourcing. Infinit-O is a leading company in the Philippines whose services include Mortgage Outsourcing. Leave the implementation and operations to them whether it may be a particular part of the process or the entire workload from start to finish. Companies can now set their efforts in attaining goals and targets and leave a bulk of the backend processing to their trustworthy outsource partner. It's much more convenient and gives the company the satisfaction and security of having support and the tip of their fingers.

Hacking Into Your Gadgets

My MP4 player had a very loose connection with the earphones that when you plug an earphone in, it slowly falls out. My remedy was to place several rubber bands to prevent it from doing so. The downside is that my screen is filled with multicolored lines... not from the video clip, but from the rubber bands literally placed above the screen.

After tolerating this for a month, I drew a bit of inspiration from George Hotz, the teenager who spent his summer vacation hacking into his iPhone to unlock it and use it for other mobile networks. He literally tore apart the phone and was able to put it all back together unlocked.

Well, I'm no hacking genius, and moreso will freak out using a soldering gun on any valuable gadget. But I did have the courage enough to unscrew the case of my MP4 player and find out what's causing my earphones from sliding back out.

Upon closer inspection, I discovered that there was a break in one of the metal connectors. It was so tiny and I had no idea at first how to join them together. I dare would use glue for fear that I might short circuit something. So I got an office supply near to the appearance of a thumbtack. It's used for fastening paper on envelopes, yet I have the slightest idea of what you call it. Anyway, I cut a piece of it and inserted it under the broken connection.

And presto ! Now I only need one rubberband instead of 10. Oh well, I told you I'm not a gadget fiddling genius. But I'm just happy that I was able to do something to make my life less time-consuming.
