BSNL EVDO To Be Available in Chennai only in Outer Peripheral Areas
· ☕ 1 min read · ✍️ Sathyajith Bhat

BSNL Chennai’s website may claim that EVDO connections are avaible, but the reality is that they’re offering connections only in outer peripheral areas. Sad as it may be but the news is true. I’d paid a visit to the Greames Road exchange in Chennai to apply for a EVDO connection. Initially I was thrilled to see the EVDO device infront of me, all my excitement died when I was informed that there’s no CDMA tower in Triplicane, nor there is one in city. I was told that at the moment, BSNL is focussing on EVDO connections(in Chennai, atleast) only in areas where standard wired connectivity is not possible - areas like Perungudy, OMR, Velachery etc.

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


Change your Yahoo IM Status to What You Are Currently Listening to

While on IM, one of the most common question everyone asks is - How do you show what song you’re listening to? Well it’s a no-brainer really, quite a few plugins exist which allow to do so, but most of them are buggy, don’t work with one version or the other, or just don’t work at all! Well after doing a bit of research, I found an ideal plugin for Winamp - Yahoo Messenger 9/8/7 Now Playing v4.

Back in 1997, when I was in 7th standard, and an adolescent, I was a huge fan of Duke Nukem 3D - for its AWESOME graphics, the attitude, and of course the sex and the violence 😛 . Back in those days, I used to play it on my old computer - an Intel Pentium 100MHz, with 16MB RAM, an 8X Creative CDROM drive and a Creative SoundBlaster 16 soundcard and had a blast with its 320.

The Idiotic Hotel Cashier

Generally I always carry a fair amount of cash with me, coz I’m a bit paranoid as to what might happen if I’m stranded without cash. The set of incidents which happened just now will now ensure that I will always carry cash with me. I’d been to Hotel Balaji Woodlands for dinner - I don’t go there often, but have been there enough number of times to know that they *do* accept Debit cards.

Appraisals, Appraisals
· ☕ 2 min read · ✍️ Sathyajith Bhat
Past couple of weeks have been sort of “important” for most people in 3i. Reason being: appraisal time. It’s that time of the year, where you are judged and rated for your performances. It’s a 3-tier appraisal, the immediate appraiser being the project manager, then the group head, and finally the HR. Appraisal mean everything for most - whether you get promoted/demoted, whether you get a salary hike or not.

How-to: Change the themes and icons of Sony Ericsson P1i
· ☕ 2 min read · ✍️ Sathyajith Bhat
The p1i by default comes with a rather drab theme, and the default ones are no good either. So, to spice up the phone’s look a bit, you can always download new themes(my current one is the PSP original theme from Themebin). While changing the theme is a no-brainer - just download (or beam) the theme(.utz) file to your memory card(or phone memory), use file manager to browse to the location where the theme is saved, click on it and just apply!
