Yeah, I visited my friend in Gurgaon again(previous photos here), on November 15th 2005. But we(me, Madan, Arvind and a friend of Madan’s) got around for a walk to one of the malls a bit late in the evening as Madan was stuck with some problems in their software, so it was around 10pm when we reached Sahara Mall, almost all of the stores were closed for the day & the shoppers were all gone pretty much. But there were some still open & we had a quick dinner at Haldiram’s.Read More
ICANN board will meet this weekend in Vancouver, British Columbia, to decide on the proposal to allow single letter domain registrations, reports Yahoo! news.
Now this can turn out to be hottest real estate in the cyberspace, since everyone would love to get hold of a single letter .COM or .NET or .ORG!! Heck, I’d be content with a single letter domain in any TLD, be it .INFO or .BIZ or .IN, anything!! 😉 So another point of discussion would be the procedure of allowing registrations for these domains, since at present domains can be registered for anything like $5/year to $100/year or above(depending on the TLD & Registrar) on a first-come-first-served basis. But like every system, this system also has its flaws as almost all of domain grabbers & squatters have automated scripts/programs that check for a domain’s availability and registers it when its available!! But these single letter domains probably won’t be available in that way!! 😕 Its quite possible that they’ll be auctioned & the price of each can fetch a six-figure sum or above a million dollars as well depending on who is bidding, like Yahoo! would love to grab Y.COM & I don’t think Google would lag behind to lay its hands on G.COM either!! 😉Read More

How cool would be a 100 megapixel per square inch photograph? Yes, you read it right, 100MP!! 😯 It would look quite a bit for those of us with our meagre 2MP or 4-5MP cameras but wait before you throw your cameras to lay your hands on this one!! This is not your ordinary digital camera, its a living camera and the photos come at a price!! It takes about 4 hours to take a snapshot and it works in only red light!! 😕 Yes, 4 hours, now that 4MP camera of yours which takes a snapshot in a second will start looking just amazingly fast to you!! 🙂Read More
