One word! Amazing. Don’t really know if its complete CGI or a doppelgänger modified with digital and physical make-up. Audrey Hepburn Starring in Galaxy Chocolate UK TV Advertisement
Usable Data / Lots of Data
Often its is said that Google creates the most usable of Apps and I constantly try to find a reason behind it. A simple display on of information on their Maps App on iPhone (or Android, since I use both) presents the user with a lot of Data. A restaurants name and address and phone [...]
Every month, sometimes twice in a month Adobe sends out these updates for Flash and Acrobat. They never have any callback to their website to verify their authenticity. Ideally, a link should be included just to give the user the confidence. Frequent updates for anything in any case is annoying.
Mavn – Social Shopping
New site mavn.me just went live with app attached for iPhone. Mavn is a social shopping environment targeted at the urban user in motion. It allows you to smartly spot stuff that you want to buy or have and neatly organize them in bags complete with tags. Kind of like an Instagram for products. On [...]

MSI Dualscreen Netbook
YouTube – MSI Dualscreen Netbook with Multitouch Display. Now this is exactly what I was hoping would come up when there was a buzz around Apple’s iPad. Sadly the iPad did not go all the way and still has tremendous scope for improvement in terms or becoming a proper computing platform than a media display [...]
Is this the Future?
This is the result of TAT’s Open Innovation experiment. It is an experience video showing the future of screen technology with stretchable screens, transparent screens and e-ink displays, to name a few. Well actually I would expect more. For instance the Keyboard and Mouse sure look redundant with a display and touch sensitive table surface. [...]
Philips got a great way to view 2.40:1
The ultrawide Philips LCD displays movies the way they were meant to be. In 2.40:1 ratio. The TV comes in 56″ size and has ambilight to ease contrast in dark rooms, much like how a silver screen diffuses and disperses the light around in a theater. The ambilight feature also changes color depending on the [...]
Toshiba libretto® W100 Dual-Screen Laptop PC
Toshiba libretto® W100 Dual-Screen Laptop PC. Sometime back when the iPad popped out from Apple’s stable, I kind of wished something like this was offered by Apple instead of the current iPad. I think the iPad is beautiful but it’s just not really a useful device. The Liberto “looks like” it has its basics correct. [...]
Found this a few days back
Not very often that we see an intercity bus parked with its rear engine bay open to view, probably from overheating. But this was on a rainy day. Found this Volvo B7R city bus with it’s intestines in full view, snapped it up. Regret the cell phones lack of quality but the sprockets and belts [...]
Houseparty – Microsoft KIN – One and Two
Houseparty. Microsoft’s got a phone out there now and it does look good. Comes in two versions of Kin One and Kin two, and both look rounded and fresh, much like a Samsung Corby, young and happy. It’s a welcome break from the numerous iPhone lookalike crowding the market. From what can be seen in [...]
Notion Ink’s Adam
Notion Ink Adam hands-on via Notion Ink Adam hands-on – SlashGear. Here’s another Tablet in the market, hitting it a wee bit before the iPad, sometime in December 2008. Since it’s a prototype the Adam’s casing here is not what the final design will be; in fact this was hand-made especially for showing the tablet at [...]
Why Apple leaves out Car Audio?
This is not a rumor or a hoax, this is just a suggestion. We all know that iPod is probably one of the most used devices in the car in conjunction with other devices that already exist. But why doesn’t apple get into the market directly and give us front row right from the driver’s [...]
Short-Sight of Short URLs
Now a days we are flooded with a crowd of short URLs that inadvertently find their way to Blogs, Posts and other such places. By nature, these URLs do not disclose the source of the content. However, once ported to a larger medium like a Blog or Forum, they need to disclose their final target. A need [...]
An Eco friendly Washing Machine
For a long time I have had this thought in mind. Why can’t washing machines have 2 water inlets, separate for Hot and Cold since so many users now have Solar Heaters at home. How it would help: Reduction in energy costs when heated wash is used. Most washing soaps are designed to work in [...]
How many of you use Top Sites on Safari?
Just curious, how many actually use this feature in Safari? Top Sites is a feature in safari where it gives you a thumbnail display of all frequently visited websites. Although the function is very simple, the display however is fantastic like all things apple.
