If you’ve been following me on twitter, you’d be knowing that I was due for a trip to Mangalore soon. Well it’s been couple of days since I’ve been in Mangalore, so I thought I’ll do a short post on what’s been up past couple of days.
Preshit’s tweet about him having the lamest mouse triggered a series of “my-mouse-is-lamer-than-yours” tweets, and in midst of that we decided to have a contest – Who’s mouse is the Lamest? So who gets the award? Lets have a look at the contenders
So I was having a nice talk with Harshad a while ago on IM, and he asked me a question no one had EVAR asked.
I’ll let the log do the talking.

4 People I’m Tagging
I hang out couple of tech forums while I’m free – gives me a general idea of what hardware configuration is more or less “standard”, and one of the worst mistakes I’ve been people doing is that they COMPLETELY ignore the PSU(or SMPS, as it’s often known). I mean we’re talking about Quad Core processors, 8800GT graphics cards, hard drives in RAID and what not, only to get a cheap local, generic 500W/600W PSU, thinking the higher the wattage, the better it is for them. The problem is that these can’t deliver the current required for these high-end components, neither are they reliable or efficient – the components inside are of the worst quality.
I keep getting this mail as a forward, and it’s contents reflect my views too. Have a look at the mail.
Mail sent by Narayan Murthy to all Infosys staff:
It’s half past 8 in the office but the lights are still on…
PCs still running, coffee machines still buzzing…
And who’s at work? Most of them ??? Take a closer look…
All or most specimens are ??

Ever since I’d seen a preview Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 at GSMArena, I’ve been floored by that awesome device. The good folks at WMExperts have managed to get a unit of Xperia X1, and take it for a spin. Lets see what they have to say about the X1. WMExperts also had a chat with Martin Winlet, the Director of Global Marketing for Sony Ericsson and he also answered some questions people had put to him. Here are some excerpts from their article
while surfing through Chennai telephones site, I came across an interesting web page: http://chennai.bsnl.co.in/News/EVDO.htm This is indeed good news for me, and for those people who can’t just go for a wired connection now(read my reason as to why i cant get a wired connection here). While a web page announcement is a good thing, whether it’ll change the ground reality – that of lack on information among BSNl employees about EVDo, anytime soon will remain to be seen. I’ve previously blogged about my hassles in trying to obtain *information* about an EVDO connection. Let’s hope this time around I get better news and feedback. I will keep you guys informed about happenings as and when I get the latest updates
More often than than, a Sony Ericsson phone is generally equated to be a music enthusiast’s phone, with their immensely popular Walkman series of phones. Sony Ericsson’s P-series cater to business needs, and P1i had been in market for a while now, infact rumour goes that P1i’s production will stop in September. Well then why this late review? Well because, (a) I bought this phone recently and (b) It’s a darn neat phone! So let’s go ahead with the review!
The P1i is a smartphone, powered by Symbian OS 9.1, with a UIQ3 user interface. The display is a generous, 2.6″, 256K colour TFT touchscreen and has a resolution of 240×320 pixels, which translates to a fair amount of real estate. Hardware wise, the P1i has 208MHz processor, with 128MB of RAM alongwith 256MB of ROM and 160MB of internal memory.
