Got it finally… But wait!

14 07 2010

After a wait of almost 2 weeks, I finally got one of the most coveted phones of the moment – Apple iPhone 4 on 10th July 2010. Having owned the original iPhone since 2007, I had been waiting for a decent upgrade option, but was not very excited with the options being offered in the market by various Mobile manufacturers. Even Apple’s upgrades to the original iPhone were a feeble attempt as compared to the original. But with iPhone 4, the picture has changed, at least that’s what it seems till I actually start using the phone myself.

So, what’s stopping me from opening this gem and giving it a go? Read the rest of this entry »





King of Pop – Still Alive !?!

9 07 2010

MJ [1958 - ????]

On 25th June 2009, people around the world got a huge shock when they got to know that the undisputed King of Pop – Michael Jackson had passed away. The music industry, critics, media, and especially the fans were shattered with this news because Michael Jackson was supposed to make a comeback with a series of ‘final’ concerts in London called “This is it” and the fans of the man were really looking forward on these final live performances, which incidentally had been the mega star’s forte. Even the tickets for the concerts were sold out months before the concerts were scheduled to happen.

Official Symbol for the Indian Rupee

7 07 2010

Most of the major currencies in the world are recognized by their own proprietary symbols like – $ for the US Dollar, € for the European Euro, £ for the British Pound and ¥ for the Japanese Yen.

With the Indian economy booming and the world taking a serious notice of the same, it was high time that a symbol representing the Indian currency – Rupee, was also introduced. Although, the Rupee has been unofficially represented by symbols such as Rs. and रू till now, there is no official symbol for the currency yet.

Apple iPhone 4 – Will It Change Everything… Again?

6 07 2010

When Apple introduced iPhone in 2007, it was an advent of a revolution. It actually changed everything. Sadly enough, I was one of those people who initially condemned iPhone without even using it due to the following factors with reasons accompanying them:

  • Look Ma!, no buttons – How would I type those long SMSes!? I hate the onscreen keypads I’ve been using on the HTC Touch.
  • No Memory Expansion Card Slot either – I was used to filling all of my Nokia Phones and memory cards with loads of music, pictures and applications.
  • Irreplaceable Li-ion Battery – Li-ion battery will inadvertently die someday; also what if the Phone gets hung by some application, you just can’t remove the battery, replace it and restart the phone.
  • Looks delicate – Accidents do happen, what if the screen breaks?.

But, these factors soon dwindled as the furore of approval for the iPhone grew larger and larger across the globe. It made me reconsider my foolish and prejudiced dislike, making me buy the original iPhone in December 2007, just to see what was making the world go gaga over the device. And boy, am I glad on my decision. iPhone 2G is the best mobile phone I’ve ever owned. Read the rest of this entry »
