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.

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! The new theme - including wallpapers, sound…

while surfing through Chennai telephones site, I came across an interesting web page: https://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…

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!

Today I completed an anniversary of sorts - 1 year of registering at Chip India forums. Chip was the first site I visited soon as I got my BSNL broadband connection(yeah, a year ago), and was instantly hooked on, esp with “friendliness quotient” factor of the forums. I was on “lurk” state for a few days, and was overwhelmed - by the amount of knowledge these guys at forums had. Initially I couldn’t post a reply to many topics - since I didn’t know much about…

Well on March 19th, 2008 I turned a year older….(wiser? pfft). It was a nice day, as I landed in Mangalore on that day from Chennai. I’d taked a flight from Chennai to Bangalore on the previous day, followed by a train from Bangalore to Mangalore(my post on my Maiden Flight Journey got lost in teh InterWebs :(( ) However the train was delayed by 1 and half hours, which resulted in me reaching home at 10, instead of the usual 8:30. I was with my family, after being away from family…

Well the day is almost here. Have been waiting for this day for a looong time. Had planned for this more than a month ago. The D-DAY: March 18th, 2008. What’s so special? Homecoming! I will be taking a long (and much deserved I might add) break from work, and will be leaving for my beloved hometown of Mangalore. It’s been more than 3 months since I’ve been to Mangalore, and have been missing my family terribly. I’m really looking forward to meet new Neice Shriya, formerly…

No, no, no a baby as in baby kid, but my new cell. Yesterday, I finally changed my nearly a year old Sony Ericsson z530i, which was gifted by my dad to me on my birthday and bought a spankin’ new Sony Ericsson P1i, which is a TouchScreen, Symbian UIQ based. I was all set to buy the Sony Ericsson W910, since initially I thought the P1i would be beyond my budget. On checking the prices, it was within my limit, and I snapped it right-away. A 3.2MP cam, nice 2.4″ screen, with a…
