The Return Of The Magpies??

Thursday, April 02, 2009 Posted by JoE



New Castle United. The team that used to be in the top 5 of the table, now are battling 2 points from relegation. After a series of lousy coaches and terrible transfers, which has led to their gradual decline over the past 4 years. They've turned to their very own iconic player Alan Shearer to save them this season. Shearer, who amassed some 206 goals in 404 appearances during a ten-year spell at his hometown club, will be officially unveiled at a press conference after leading his first training session on Thursday. You could never take New Castle out of this man and vice-versa and exactly why the team will be playing their hearts out with their new coach who used to don the famous no 9 jersey. The fans will be hoping for a miracle from the man who has been their Messiah in the past

Hope he can manage to keep the team afloat this season..Imagine New castle in the first division. YIKES!!

Monday, March 16, 2009 Posted by D$

MicroUsb

Most manufacturers now produce chargers which work only with their own devices which has in turn lead to a hassle for us folks.Hence mobile phone makers and network operators have backed plans to create universal Micro-USB phone chargers.Firms to back the plan include Nokia, Motorola, Samsung, Sony Ericsson, LG, T-Mobile, Orange, 3, AT&T and Vodafone.The group agreed that by the January 2012, most mobile phones will support the universal charger.Thats one less thing for me to carry around!

Anime : DeathNote

Saturday, February 14, 2009 Posted by D$

Death Note

Mangas (Japanese comics), are extremely popular in Japan and well known throughout the world for their unique and awesome storylines. Animes are made based on the respective mangas. The very first anime which got me hooked was DeathNote and just because its an anime doesn't make it a stupid "CARTOON" as some might think.
The series centers on Light Yagami, a high school student who discovers a supernatural notebook,titled "Death Note", dropped on Earth by a shinigami (death god) named Ryuk. The Death Note grants its user the ability to kill anyone whose face they have seen, by writing the victim's name in the notebook. The story follows Light's attempt to create and rule a world cleansed of evil using the notebook, and the complex conflict between him and his opponents.
There are tons of animes out there but i feel this would be the best to start off with if you haven't started watching animes, as its got an amazing storyline and only has 37 episodes in total.
A MUST watch for everyone!

The Pink Chaddi Campaign

Saturday, February 14, 2009 Posted by j0e

picture tag
Young urban educated Indian women have found out a unique way of protesting against Hindu ultra-rightist groups. More than 39,000 people from all over the country and abroad, (including Afghanistan, Iraq and the West) have already joined this group during the last one week as the fastest growing international community, which calls itself the ‘Consortium of Pub-going, Loose and Forward Women’ (CPLF). They have decided to give pink underwears, (‘chaddis’ in colloquial Hindi) to the chief of Sri Ram Sena, Pramod Muthalik, this Valentines Day. This is a reponse to the Mangalore Pub incident and protest against Muthalik's comments on forceful marriage of couples on Valentine's Day. Show your support by joining the Facebook group.

Update: So far, 16,139 people from all over the city have sent chaddis for Muthalik.

Something to ponder on

Monday, February 09, 2009 Posted by j0e

This is a beautifully written article, Why should I respect these oppressive religions? by Johann Hari which i found on the prestidigitator. Click here for the entire article.
.....All people deserve respect, but not all ideas do. I don’t respect the idea that a man was born of a virgin, walked on water and rose from the dead. I don’t respect the idea that we should follow a “Prophet” who at the age of 53 had sex with a nine-year old girl, and ordered the murder of whole villages of Jews because they wouldn’t follow him.

I don’t respect the idea that the West Bank was handed to Jews by God and the Palestinians should be bombed or bullied into surrendering it. I don’t respect the idea that we may have lived before as goats, and could live again as woodlice. This is not because of “prejudice” or “ignorance”, but because there is no evidence for these claims. They belong to the childhood of our species, and will in time look as preposterous as believing in Zeus or Thor or Baal.

When you demand “respect”, you are demanding we lie to you. I have too much real respect for you as a human being to engage in that charade.



But a free society cannot be structured to soothe the hardcore faithful. It is based on a deal. You have an absolute right to voice your beliefs – but the price is that I too have a right to respond as I wish. Neither of us can set aside the rules and demand to be protected from offence.......

Google Internet Bus in Tamil Nadu

Thursday, February 05, 2009 Posted by j0e

Google Internet Bus

Google has headed to rural India for the next month and a half. The company's Internet bus will roll through towns in the state of Tamil Nadu, providing connectivity via satellite, and content and instruction in both English and Tamil to people whose only previous exposure to the online world (if any) has been via cell phone or cyber cafe. This is all part of a broader scheme to expand into the Indian countryside, and if the trip is a success more are sure to follow. The company's services already include transliteration, news, bidirectional machine translation, and soft keyboards for a number of Indian languages, and a host of kick-ass Ravi Shankar tunes now available on Google Video.

$20 Laptop ... Fake?

Wednesday, February 04, 2009 Posted by j0e

All eyes are on India now. First, India gave us the world's cheapest car. Now comes the world's most affordable laptop. India's government unveiled the jointly-developed "$20 laptop" dubbed Sakshat. The laptop is slated to ship in six months, with specs of 2GB of storage, WiFi, Ethernet and 2 watts of power consumption.

There's still no published image of the thing, or information about the screen size, RAM or processor. Some folks are also still skeptical as to whether a laptop can really be produced at such a low cost, since most LCDs alone would put it over budget. The laptop itself won't be subsidized, but the government will shoulder 25 percent of the cost of broadband for colleges, and there will be free e-learning textbooks available to students online. It forms part of a broader plan to improve e-learning at more than 18,000 colleges and 400 universities.

The Indian machine would also be considerably cheaper than the "$100 laptop", the lime-green computer known as the Children's Machine or XO that was designed by scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in the US.

Imformation Week, Guardian

Update: It seems that its a fake after all. Read this article.

Stig Revealed..??

Wednesday, January 28, 2009 Posted by j0e

The Stig

Fans of Top Gear might want to prepare themselves for another Stig death soon. When "Black Stig" Perry McCarthy revealed himself, Clarkson, Hammond and May "killed" him. The "White Stig" has apparently ended the mystery, revealing himself as 33 year-old Ben Collins. James May claims that there is a clause in the Stig's contract that should his identity be exposed either through his own willingness or via a member of the Top Gear staff (including the hosts of Top Gear), he has to be fired.

Collins has raced professionally in everything from NASCAR to LeMans, and most recently served as Agent 007's double for sequences of Quantum of Solace that required fancy wheel work. Collins himself apparently revealed his day job to the owner of an art gallery in Bristol, England when asking for help producing a limited-edition print of The Stig.

Here is what Top Gear had to say : Article 1, Article 2, Article 3

The Gateway Hotels

Monday, January 19, 2009 Posted by j0e

The Gateway Hotel Kochi

When I first heard of the Taj Residency was renamed to The Gateway Hotel, I thought the Tata group is selling of their hotels. But it seems that the Tata group has launched the The GateWay Hotels as their mid-market brand, Ginger Hotels as smart basics hotels and the Taj Hotels will remain as their luxury brand. Taj Hotels Resort and Palaces comprises 76 hotels, 7 palaces, 6 private islands and 12 resorts and spas, spanning 52 destinations in 12 countries across 5 continents. Kochi has The Gateway hotel in marine drive and Taj Malabar in Wellington Island.

Best Free File Hosting Site - Mediafire!

Sunday, January 18, 2009 Posted by D$


There are tons of free file hosting sites out there but they all have some crappy download limits or countdown timers for each download which ultimately gets on my nerves.So after some searching i found out Mediafire has the best to offer out there for FREE!

The main free features include
Unlimited storage
Unlimited uploads
Unlimited downloads( multiple downloads simultaneously!)
Unlimited bandwidth
No countdown timers(no more waiting)
Download managers/accelerators support!(resume your downloads! )
No sign up required!
Its interface is really simple and easy to use with all necessary details.
The only catch is that
the files you upload can only be up to 100MB in size.But that's nothing compared to what im getting for FREE so stop hosting files elsewhere and get it on FIRE!
But if you still think you need to upload larger files i would suggest you try Transfer Big Files which has 1gb limit per file for free!
If you think you know a better free hoster lemme know, till then im sticking to this one!

India splutters to halt

Friday, January 09, 2009 Posted by j0e

picture tag
I was out last night to stock up on petrol like the rest of the country. The queue was horrible and the pump attenders were playing 'God' deciding who to give the last bit of their stock. In today's morning news, it seem like 80% of all pumps in major cities of India are out of stock. 90% of taxis and autos are not running. Does anyone know how long this strike is going to last?

Update : Cochin wasn't hit so bad. Fuel was available at the refinery pumps on Airport-Seaport Road and traffic was as usual except for the CPI meeting in Ernakulum town. It seems the fuel strike has ended but it will be Monday till everything gets back to normal production. Meanwhile the fuel pumps in metro cities will be refilled tonight.
