Microsoft Surface

The demo is too cool. Its a surprise that such a thing comes from Microsoft. I think this is going to be the next big thing.

Shootout at Lokhandwala

The movie is so immature that I could figure out that I'm going to regret watching it within the first 2 minutes. The direction is amateurish. The editing haphazard. The actors are not good either. I wonder why so many famous actors would have done such a shitty movie; maybe for the money. In fact I would rate this lower than Spiderman-3.
Don't go and watch it!

Linux-the Academic Microsoft Windows
The holy trinity: Linux, gcc, and Netscape.
Of course, it’s just another orthodoxy.
These have become icons not because of what they are, but
because of what they are not: Microsoft.

We care for you

Expected time of departure: 11:10 P.M
Actual time of departure: 1:10 AM

Not only did I wait for more than 2 hours (oh.. I came early) for the bus to come, when I asked the bus driver to explain the delay, I got a slurred (yes the driver was drunk) reply that the bus was not late.

Spiderman 3 sucks

The movie reminded me a typical 80's Bollywood movie. Its 3 hours long. Has plenty of emotional sequences. Confused parallel unconnected story lines. And at the end someone else takes the bullet for the hero and refuses to go to the hospital while he is dying a la "मुझे hospital ले जाने से कुछ नही होगा। मै यही ठीक हूँ।" Add around 8-10 Anu Malik songs and you would have a Bollywood masala movie.
My suggestion? Go watch Bheja Fry instead.

I want one of these

I'm a child in a developing country ... gimme one.

I hate laptops in general, but this one (OLPC) looks quite tempting. Its $ 100, but its only available through government agencies. The hardware is not brutal, and I don't know what I will do with one of these, but I sure will want to buy it.
