Yeah, how much you know about the first & second trilogies? You can test your StarWars knowledge by taking this Star Wars quiz at CNN.com. 😉 It’ll actually test you more on the first trilogy than on second!! 😀 So if you haven’t watched the first trilogy, better watch it now, the movies may not have the special effects that the ones in second trilogy had, but the story is still captivating while you can marvel the fact at how they managed to pull them off in the 70s & 80s(The Return of Jedi – 1983) without all the gizmos that they had when making the second trilogy!!Read More
Yeah, I made a trip to Gurgaon this evening with my friend Sharafat to meet two other pals, Madan & Arvind(Madan’s friend) at their office/residence(they have a company provided residence in the same bunglow). The plan was to just screw around some malls & then eat out & have fun, sort of a party(Madan owed one to me).Read More
Yeah, it seems like Rediffmail is catching up on the buzz fast!! First it boosted its free email storage to 1GB when Google came out banging with 1000MB GMail service. Now its intent on improving its UI as well by adding a bit of the buzzword(AJAX) to it. 😉 Yes, as you can see from the screenshot below(click it for a larger image), Rediffmail is certainly trying to improve, to retain users!! 😀Read More
No, I’m not talking about a group of birds or a herd of animals or anything else!! Its not some new term or rage(that might be debatable) either, but its a new browser for sure!! Yes, Flock, a browser based on the open source Mozilla FireFox!!
You can also term this browser as FireFox on Steroids!! 😉 If you click the image on left, you’ll see a screenshot of this browser, which currently resembles very much to FireFox, but has a cool looking theme & graphics!! But that’s not all if you are wondering!! Its got everything that FireFox has and it has more!!Read More
If you think that you are safe in your bed, well, its time to think again, as Leslie Katz writes about a bulletproof bed, on Gadgets Blog at c|net. 😉

Its got a center console with a touch screen control panel that lets you open and close the unit’s doors and operate ventilation, heating & air conditioning and a rebreather system which is activated when the ventilation system is shut off.

Yes, the Ringtones are going political, as c|net reports!!
A washington based web-developer, Eric Gundersen, has made a ringtone which contains a part of Bush’s speech.
Protest ringtones, as they are called, is quite a new genre, which originally emerged in Philippines a few months ago when opponents of President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo got access to a recording of a clandestine conversation between the head of state and a top election official.
The ringtone reportedly shot up on the charts so quickly, one of the websites offering it for download crashed under the load!! It didn’t do any visible harm to the Arroyo government but now seem to be inspiring the activists in USA.
Yay, I got the WordPress.com Golden Ticket today finally!! I had put in my email sometime back & then forgot about it(so I wasn’t waiting). And today when I checked my email, it was there, sitting in my Inbox. Here’s what it said:
A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away you entered your email
address on http://wordpress.com/ to get a blog.
There are many reasons why I hate Apple and more reasons for why they suck bigtime!! And here’s one, the “Made for iPod” program by Apple, under which, every accessory maker whose devices connects electrically to iPod will have to pay a royalty to Apple, c|net reports.
So why does Apple suck? They can’t see other people making money, especially if its based on their device!! Now this is like Microsoft started charging a royalty on every software made to run on Windows, imagine how big an outrage it’ll be!! 🙄 Sure they have the “WindowsXP Logo” program which allows you to display a “Made for WindowsXP” logo on your product but its not compulsory & you are not forced to take part in it. So why Apple is forcing it? To make a quick buck, ofcourse, wash hands in the running water you know!! Speculation say that the bounty is as high as 10% of the wholesale price of each item. Now this will only mean increase in the prices for iPod accessories, as if they weren’t already expensive!! 🙄Read More
