Marriage is the triumph of imagination over intelligence. Second marriage is the triumph of hope over experience.
- Oscar Wilde
You have GOT to be joking!
As per TechCruch, a while back there was a Googlle Institute of Software Studies opened up in the same city that offered courses with titles such as GCPA (Googlle Certified Professional in Advanced Computing – !!!).
Yes, the word Googlle is NOT a typo, that WAS the name of the ‘institution’.
Fucking bunch of idiots.
It should be pretty obvious by now (to anyone) that when it comes to being a productive smart-phone – there is very little the iPhone has to offer.
But for time pass – as I have mentioned time and again, this device can certainly provide hours of entertainment (assuming the bloody battery would last a couple of hours at least).
Fucking hilarious. Some of my personal favourites are listed below.
You could also click here and read tons more!
Supposed to be based on real life story of a college student’s interactions with John Wayne Gacy (serial killer on death row).
Jason Moss also authored the book The Last Victim – based on his interactions with Gacy. I haven’t read the book. As much as I am fascinated by the stories about serial killers - I have no intentions of reading this book ever.
I read the reviews and then watched the film. After I was done watching it, went back to re-read the reviews. Still can’t believe the reviews are for the same crap I ended up watching.
A ridiculous film. Total crap, waste of time. IF the film accurately depicts real life events of Jason Moss, then in my opinion – he had a very ridiculous/pathetic/pointless life and I am surprised that he didn’t shoot himself earlier.
I looked it up and Jason Moss shot himself on June 6, 2006. Guess he was just waiting for 06-06-06 (as in 666).
Easter eggs - This time of the year?! What were you thinking?? No, seriously - what made you think this would be a good idea?!
Perhaps Mr. Galtes was too high to remember which holiday was coming up. He would have had a better chance with Christmas tree ornaments.
I enjoyed watching this film. I would have preferred if the last half hour or so was done differently, but that’s just me. Not sure if many people would enjoy it though. Some of my friends found it too slow and boring.
Haath uthe hain magar lab pe duaa koi nahin
Kii ibaadat bhi vo jiss ki jazaa koi nahin
Ye bhi vaqt aanaa tha ab to gosh har aavaaz hai
Aur mere barbaad-e-dil mein sadaa koi nahin
Aa ke ab taslim kar len tu nahin to main sahi
Kaun maanegaa ke hum mein bevafaa koi nahin
Vaqt ne vo khaak udaai hai ke dil ke dasht se
Qaafile guzre hain phir bhi naqsh-e-paa koi nahin
Khud ko yuun mahasuur kar baitha hoon apni zaat mein
Manzilen chaaron taraf hai raastaa koi nahin
Kaise raaston se chale aur kis jagah pahunche 'faraz'
Yaa hujuum-e-dostaan tha saath yaa koi nahin
The logo is ripped off from OPPO.
Almost everyone would have come across a knock off phone named/branded in a fashion similar to another popular brand (BlackCherry and HiPhone are pictured below). Nothing new about that. But who in their right mind would believe that launching a phone branded as POOP would be a good idea??!
Had a hands on with the 9780.
Well the camera is better and yes, it does have twice the RAM but… with OS6 running just about fine on my 9700, I don’t see myself wanting a 9780.
Also, I prefer the chrome panels on the 9700. Looks classier than the blacked out one of the 9780. Same goes for the back panel. The plain one (on 9780) just doesn’t appeal as much (to me).
Haath mera ai meri parchhaai tu hi thaam le
Ek muddat se mujhe to soojhta kuch bhi nahin
Shahar-e-shab mein kaun-saa ghar thaa na di jiss par sadaa
Neend ke andhe musaafir ko mila kuch bhi nahin
Umr bhar umr-e-gurezaan se na meri ban saki
Jo kare karti rahe main poochta kuch bhi nahin
Vo bhi shaayad ro pade viraan kaagaz dekh kar
Main ne us ko aakhri khat mein likha kuch bhi nahin
If someone were to access your blog from a mobile device, they will automatically be redirected to a mobile version of your blog.
TSA will screen you, wand you, grope you - all in the name of “security” but they seem to miss a loaded gun in your carry-on. Shaabaash!
They will give you a tough time over hair-gel and lighters, but a Glock is perfectly ok!?
Psst, this isn’t the first time. Link
ABC News reports - Two weeks ago, TSA's new director said every test gun, bomb part or knife got past screeners at some airports.
Now people can say it’s a human error and the TSA personnel are doing the best they can, but evidently they are more interested in hassling travellers, feeling up passengers and watching naked images on the screens as opposed to keeping contraband off the plane.
Almost done with the first season. I find it enjoyable. Yet to come across a super annoying character in the show. They all seem fine, for now at least.
Not going to bother with the American version of the series. Pretty sure it will be disappointing.
New time pass ‘App’ to help you feel better about your crappy iPhone (I can’t emphasise this enough, the bloody thing is a glorified toy).
Both of them are pretty much the same thing. For those who can’t find a FREE version of Fruit Ninja, simply download Veggie Samurai.
Now you have the option to restore your Gmail Contacts to any point within the past 30 days.
Don’t know about others, but my primary contact list is on Gmail (Outlook is for idiots who don’t know better). With Google Sync – automatically syncing my BlackBerry contacts (and calendar) to my Gmail account – over the air, keeps my contacts updated at all times. Most importantly - my contacts are now available even if I misplace my phone.
Not to mention, switching devices has never been easier. No need to bother with installing bulky PC Connect Suite applications.
With the restore feature – all the more reason to stick to Gmail. There have been times when I have accidentally merged the wrong contacts. Let’s not even get started on how many times I have deleted contacts by mistake (just because I like to believe I am Superman, doesn’t necessarily mean that I am. I do fuck up, at times).

For those of you who use FaceBook on your BlackBerry – Some users are experiencing Session Expired Error (Error 2102).
To fix the problem, simply log on to FaceBook on your computer and change the Password. Then, log on to FaceBook app on your BlackBerry using the new Password. You should not be getting Error 2102, again.
You can always change it back to the old password and it will work fine.
I did like the poster and was about to download the film when I read “From the mind of M.Night Shyamalan”.
I will agree that The Sixth Sense was a good film, but after that - it’s just been one pointless/absurd nonsense after another.
After watching The Happening, I had decided - no more Shyamalan crap. And as much intriguing the poster is, Shyamalan’s name is warning enough that it’s going to be yet another waste of time.

The woman is obviously suffering from serious memory loss. Hopefully someone will remind her about her earlier statements. OR are we going to need another Wikileak for her to take notice?
This is from the Associated Press on 29-11-10:
Not so long ago, Hillary had harped on about Internet Freedom. Here is the text for that:
So our future versions are going to be so stupid, that they will need sensors to tell them that they are thirsty!!
There seems to be a strong belief that the next generation is going to be super dumb. Personally, I believe the present generation HAS ALREADY crossed the ‘super dumb’ mile marker and are hopefully heading towards extinction.
How else would one explain that someone would not only come up but also fund such a pointless concept?!
Kill me…. kill me NOW!
The first one was amazing.
This one… err… average – at best (feeling generous). Shia LaBeouf can’t act and shouldn’t act. Extremely irritating. He is like this bitch who just won’t shut up. Aaarrgghh
Michael Douglas – Doesn’t matter what this guy does. Always manages to make it look cool.
Just had to share this.
Haath chhute bhi to rishte nahin chhoda karte
vaqt ki shaakh se lamhen nahin toda karte
Jis ki aavaaz mein silvat ho nigaahon mein shikan
aisi tasveer ke tukade nahin joda karte
Shahad jeene ka mila karta hai thoda thoda
jaane vaalon ke liye dil nahin thoda karte
Lag ke saahil se jo bahta hai usse bahne do
aise dariya ka kabhi rukh nahin moda karte
Remember Wafaa Bilal, the nutty professor who was getting a camera installed in the back of his head? Well, he did it. He got the surgery done and now has a titanium plate in his head which will hold a thumb sized camera (magnetic, I guess).
In my opinion - if they were going to cut up his head to 'implant' something, I seriously think he should have opted for a BRAIN implant instead of that titanium plate.
When I had first read the news, I figured that a CAMERA would be ‘implanted’. Turns out it’s a stick on camera and a PLATE was implanted.
Now, just use your non-camera mounted head for a second and think. Couldn’t the same pointless objective be achieved if he were to wear a hat with a camera at the back? Or attach the camera to his head with something as simple as a rubber-band and avoid a painful surgery?
Have said it before as well, and will say it again – Some people do extremely stupid things in the name of art. It’s even worse when other idiots appreciate it.
The last time Bilal went all cuckoo and did something equally pointless (if not more) was in 2007 when he allowed virtual users to fire paintballs at him. At that time, The Chicago Tribune decided to name Buffoon Bilal as “Artist of the year” (!!!???).
Sigh… idiots encouraging other idiots.
When I saw the picture of this product, the first thought in my head was – StormTrooper shoes! The Empire Strikes Back!
It’s a concept product. The How to Use guide states when your foot is ON THE FLOOR, the device will switch off automatically. To make it work (clean), LIFT the foot a little and the device will switch on.
Might not be as weird as I think, but what I am actually picturing is - A ballet dancer with these shoes on, trying to clean the floor while practicing a routine.
errr… am I the only one who thinks using a normal vacuum cleaner would be a hell lot easier?

Tammy Banovac, a 52 year old retired surgeon who uses a wheelchair got tired of her wheelchair buzzing off the scanners every time she travelled. Since her wheelchair sets off the scanners, she ends up being hand-searched at the security checkpoint.
According to reports, Tammy didn’t like the idea of being hand-searched, thanks to an earlier “unpleasant hands-on experience”. So, she tries a different approach.
On her most recent travel, Tammy arrived at the airport dressed in black lace lingerie and a trench coat. She refuses to go through the metal detector (given that her wheelchair is metal, it would go off any way) and takes off her trench coat.
Tammy’s view – “Here you go. I am not hiding anything, so you don’t really need to perform a hand-search or grope me”.
What happened next?
TSA officials give her an hour long hand-search and questioning. Tammy misses her flight. If you think about it, the only thing that needed to be checked would have been the wheelchair and there is no way that would take an hour.
Given the woman wasn’t wearing anything other than her lace bra / panties and a pearl necklace, I don’t see why it would take the officials an hour to “check” for whatever they thought she might have been concealing in her lace underwear.
TSA officials claimed that they found traces of nitrate residue on her body. My point is – nitrate residue or not, how the hell would it take an hour to search someone who is wearing nothing but her underwear?? Where did they think she would be hiding the weapon(s)???
Tammy did the exact same thing the following day and still got a hand-search but this time managed to take the flight.
I don’t know Tammy and she just might have more issues than her disability. Probably she is messed up in her head as well. Perhaps she has a mental condition or just a disturbed individual, who knows. Look at the video and you will realise why some people are commenting that she looks lifeless and / or a robot.
Regardless of her probably being a cuckoo brain or (highly unlikely) a humanoid, I can’t seem to understand why she was subject to an hour long secondary security screening!
Guzre dinon ki yaad barasti ghataa lage
Guzroon jo us gali se to thandi havaa lage
Mehmaan ban ke aaye kisi roz agar vo shakhs
Us roz bin sajaaye mera ghar sajaa lage
Main iss liye manaataa nahin vasl ki khushi
Mere raqib ki na mujhe bad-duaa lage
Vo qahat dosti ka padaa hai ki in dinon
Jo muskuraa ke baat kare aashnaa lage
Tark-e-vafaa ke baad ye us ki adaa 'qateel'
Mujhko sataaye koi to us ko buraa lage
When I first read the headline, I thought – perhaps the teacher wanted every student to have their own Netbook (which wouldn’t be a bad idea). But the teacher’s argument against pencils is…… ”pencils can be used to build weapons”!!
The teacher (Wendy Scott) sent a memo to the parents of her sixth grade students stating that from Nov 15, any student bringing writing implements to school would face disciplinary action for having materials to build weapons! It also said that pencils would be provided for students in the class.
Just curious - how are Wendy Scott’s pencils different from the ones that the students are getting?
Fists and feet can be used as weapons too, so… err… what would Wendy suggest next? Chop off the hands and legs of the sixth grade students?
I bet Wendy would love to implement TSA’s ‘security measures’ before anyone enters her class.
I saw this today morning. The Post is titled 10 Tips for Writing Better Blog Posts.
Tip No:7 says Proofread. Which I totally agree with, but then there is a typo in the very next ‘tip’.
What’s even worse - There is a Tip No: 6 that says: “Don’t Ignore Your Readers”. Now, I had submitted a comment for this post on Blogger Sentral today morning, highlighting the typo and suggesting that the author refers to his Tip No: 7. The comment has not been published.
As you can see from the screenshot above, the typo hasn’t been corrected and it’s 11:49 PM.
If she does win the republican nomination to run for president, she should be referred to as the republiCUNT candidate. Dumb bitch.
Judging by the crap Palin keeps saying and tweeting time and again, I seriously believe that she just puts words together and prays that it makes some sense. More often than not – it’s meaningless.
Read this today morning on TOI. Simple enough concept that facilitates 24X7 fund transfers in real time. Register with the bank for a Mobile Money Transfer Identifier Number (MMID). Install the Mobile Banking app on the handset and that’s pretty much it. Of course, goes without saying that you need to have a mobile number and a Bank Account.
The article quotes “anofficial” (typo on the site) as saying “Nowhere in the world is a facility of this magnitude present”.
From all the places in the world one could think of - even a BETTER service is available in….. KENYA! It has been available since 2007. The users don’t need a Mobile Banking app or even a Bank Account. In March 2010, USD 351 million were transferred using this service.
I had read the news (about Kenya) the other day and was impressed that all the user had to do was send a TEXT message to transfer cash. What further impressed me was there was no need for a Bank Account!
Obviously the OFFICIAL can go ahead and claim he was referring to Bank Transfers specifically and NOT money transfers in general. Or he could go on and say that he MEANT it in terms of population.
Well - if you have a higher population, obviously there will be a higher number of users. There is very little to brag about on that front. Having a huge number of cellphone subscribers or bank accounts doesn’t really hold much weight when you are the second most populated country in the world!
Dikhaawon pe mat jaao…. Apni akal ladaao!
Here is another one.
Was just thinking, instead of having an hour glass (highlighted in the previous post) or having a marker thingy / loading bars (as pictured above), why not just make it numeric? It’s called – KEEPING IT SIMPLE
Something like – Keep a 2 position system. Top for Stop, Bottom for Go and instead of displaying just a solid colour, it displays a countdown timer.
Would be large enough to be readable. The different positions would make it usable for the colour blind as well and there would be no need for an extra display unit to show the timer.
Labels: Think About It
Does look interesting. However, I would like to add that I have seen standard traffic lights with attached timers which serve the purpose just fine.
Looking at the concept and thinking about it, there are a few problems. Using the orange twice is going to be a bit confusing, but what’s really wrong with the concept is – they didn’t think about people who are colour blind!
Now before someone comes with wise ass remarks, please read - the present traffic light design works fine for the colour blind because of the positioning of the lights. Top is Stop, Bottom is Go, Middle is Prepare to Stop.
And just for the record, there are different types of colour blindness. The major ones are:
