An iPhone Case And Wallet Rolled Into One

Hmm. Not THAT bad. I like the idea of the case and wallet being rolled into one. The site gives a full description of how one can easily pull the phone out a bit and click pics.

Just one thing - SOME users might actually want to make a call from the damn thing (err, it IS a phone after all) and not EVERYONE uses handsfree (I don’t).

Now, it would seem pretty ridiculous holding the open book/wallet/case thingy next to one’s ear. Judging by the pics - doesn’t seem like this case can be flipped back all the way. If it can be, well would look just as much ridiculous with your credit cards and ID flashing on the side, wouldn’t it?

Pune Police Introduces Rules For Partying ??!!

As per a new directive, anybody partying in hotels, resorts, farmhouses and venues of student gatherings on campuses will have to take permission from the police.

The police measures go on to say anyone hosting such a party will also have to submit names, addresses and contact numbers of all invitees. Finally, and most bizarrely, the hosts of  the party will have to install cameras so that the entire party can be videographed.

What nonsense!

Double Dhamaal

double-dhamaal-poster

Thuuu.

Waste of time. Horrid film. Part of it is lifted (sort of) from a Hustle episode. A very Bollywood version of the episode. I guess that’s enough to let everyone know what a crappy rip off this is.

No matter how hard I try, I can’t seem to comprehend what the makers were thinking when they decided to release this crap. Don’t they bother to run / watch the film for themselves (at least once) once it is completed? One would have to be a complete retard to opt for releasing such a film after watching the final version.

What’s even more difficult to understand is - how can anyone enjoy watching such a pathetic film?!

Laakhon Ki Sunaa Tumne Taqdeer Sanvaari Hai

Syed Shafaq Shah Chishti…

Laakhon ki sunaa tumne taqdeer sanvaari hai
mujh se yahi kah dete - ab ke teri baari hai

Daali hai nazar jab se ek nashaa saa taari hai
kya koi pari saaqi sheeshe mein utaari hai

Kya uss ko rijhaayenge jannat ke hasin jalve
dahleez tere dar ki jis shakhs ko pyaari hai

Virase mein mili hum ko shaahi bhi faqeeri bhi
aur gham to "Shafaq" goyaa jaagir humaari hai

Blasts Look Pre-Planned: Ashok Chavan

Former Maharashtra chief minister Ashok Chavan described the serial explosions that rocked Mumbai Wednesday evening as unfortunate and said it looked as if the bombings that killed around 10 people and left scores injured were pre-planned.

Link

[Sarcasm] The blasts LOOKED pre-planned!!? You really think so? Wow! What amazing insight. Did you manage to arrive at this eye-opening conclusion all by yourself? A very skilful* display of deductive reasoning [/Sarcasm].

A suggestion for Mr. Chavan - If you have nothing to say then SAY NOTHING.

 

* Skilful is NOT a typo. It can be spelt as Skillful OR Skilful. The one with the double l is the preferred spelling in American English, and the single l is the preferred spelling in British, Canadian and Australian English [Link].

Cryptex Flash Drive With Combination Lock

Pity it’s just a concept.

It can definitely be hacked by trying all possible combinations (brute force). It would take some time but if someone is determined enough, it can be hacked open eventually.

STILL – I would love to have one of these. Looks cool.

Interesting Search Query

New Picture

That’s from my Stat Counter Keyword Activity page.

I use Google for a lot of things, but – there are some things one should be able to figure out without the assistance of a search engine. Believe it or not, EVEN Google has it’s limitations.

In the above case, for instance – Google unfortunately can not predict how your parents would react. I am sure you would know your parents a tad bit better than Google would.

BUT if it’s a suggestion the person was looking for, here is one – NO. There is NO NEED to tell your parents that you took the car for a joy ride (Not unless you hit someone with the car). What they don’t know (and can’t find out unless you open your mouth), won’t hurt anyone.

Bheja Fry 1 & 2

 bheja-fry-movie-poster-2007-1020414714

245556,xcitefun-bheja-fry-poster

Yes, I am aware that the first part was released ages ago. I didn’t bother with it because I simply detested the title. Later I came across a lot of good reviews for the first one, but I never did get around to watching it.

The other day, someone was talking about the sequel of Bheja Fry and mentioned that the first one was a good fun film and was looking forward to the sequel. He asked me if I could download a good print for both films for him. I did that and passed it over to him.

Last night, I wasn’t getting any sleep and there really wasn’t anything to do. It’s amazing what one will do to kill time at 2 am. I watched both the films (the second one, pretty much scanned through it). HATED BOTH OF THEM.


Bheja Fry - I don’t find such characters funny / enjoyable. I find them annoying, pathetic and intolerable. It’s a stupid film and deserves to be trashed.

Vinay Pathak might be a good actor but I am yet to see him in a role where he isn’t playing a buffoon. I would like to point out here that I don’t watch every Hindi film that gets released. Perhaps he has done non-idiotic roles - I just haven’t come across any, yet.

Bheja Fry 2 – Even more pointless senseless crap. Equally (if not more) irritating.

Extremely disappointed that Kay Kay Menon would do such a film. Minnisha Lamba is her usual annoying self (It might help if I found her attractive, but I don’t). It’s just something about her face and voice that sets my teeth on edge.

Musafir Chalte Chalte Thak Gayaa Hai

Salman Saeed…

Musafir chalte chalte thak gayaa hai
Safar jaane abhi kitna pada hai

Makaan ke sab makeen soye pade hain
Hawaa ka shor mujhse keh raha hai
Musafir chalte chalte thak gayaa hai

Wo mere saamne baitha lekin
Dilon ke beech kitna faasla hai
Musafir chalte chalte thak gayaa hai

Jise milne tum aaye ho yahaan par
Wo kab ka is makaan se ja chuka hai
Musafir chalte chalte thak gayaa hai

Tumko Bhool Na Paayenge

Nida Fazli…

Kahin-kahin se har chehra tum jaisa lagta hai
Tumko bhool na paayenge hum - aisa lagta hai

Aisa bhi ek rang hai jo karta hai baatein bhi
Jo bhi isko pehn le voh apna sa lagta hai

Aur to sab kuch theek hai lekin kabhi-kabhi yunhi
Chalta phirta shaher achaanak, tanha lagta hai

Vibrate Calls

 

322768

A while back, a friend mentioned that there was this one feature on the HTC Touch Diamond, that he loved and was missing on his other handsets. The feature - Phone vibrates when a dialled call is answered.

I am pretty sure there would be shit loads of apps for the Android and the iPhone that would achieve the same. Today, I stumbled across an app for BlackBerry that adds this functionality. Just thought of putting it up here, in case anyone is interested.

It’s free and fully customizable. Available on AppWorld. I tested it out on the 9700 OS 6 and it works just fine. Just wanted to see if it worked and then I removed the app (I don’t need it), so I don’t know if it has any impact on the battery life.

Amnesty Notice At Kuwait Airport

 Airport-20110702-00002

Airport-20110702-00003

I took these pictures today at the Kuwait Airport. There was a huge notice and I was a bit surprised to see typos for something like THIS!

BTW, the words are supposed to be violation and penalty. Probably there are more typos. I just didn’t bother reading up the entire thing. Why should I? Clearly, the people who printed the damn thing and put it up didn’t bother to read it, why should anyone else.
