Infinite World Of Text

This is a unique concept. The freedom which this “Your World of Text” offers is mind-numbing.

Imagine a page of infinite size on which anyone in the world could write (in this case – Type). You can write on a white area. Or you can even erase what others have written and re-write it. Your World of Text

You can only see this in the browser (with Chrome or Firefox). So for people watching this in their mail, click on the title to open in the browser. I got this from Chrome Experments of Google (as from the previous post).

Here is the page below (Can’t be seen in e-mails). Click anywhere on the Frame and drag it to produce more text in the same area… Its pretty smooth if you ask me. The text you see in the frame below is not computer generated, but its typed by a real person.

Google Chrome Experiments –Depth of Field (Amazing)

Point No. 1: You can enjoy this, if and only if you have Google Chrome Browser.

For those who don’t have it and want to try it (for your own reasons or for enjoying this post - *hopefully… :D *), here is the link.
http://www.google.com/chrome

I’ve found this site (from Varun’s blog a long time back) and been enjoying its content ever since. We all know (atleast most of us) that Google Chrome has its own enhanced Java Script engine. Tests by Google in September 2008 showed that V8 was about twice as fast as Firefox 3.0 and the WebKit nightlies. To show case THIS advantage, Google opened up a separate section called, “Chrome Experiments” – [http://www.chromeexperiments.com/]whose caption is - “Not your mother’s Java Script”. And the caption is true too. When you try to run these ‘experiments’ in other browsers, either they hang, crash, slow down or just be buggy.

These experiments are nothing but Java Scripts used creatively to showcase Chrome’s speed in executing Java Scripts. Here is a good example…

I absolutely love this one….  When it is playing, click in the playing area to change the view angle. You can rotate the view screen. One little piece of genius. Excellent.

Don’t you just LOVE it??

Enjoy as always…. :D

China Attacks Google – Google Backfires

Google believes that the Chinese Government is conducting an organized cyber attack to get the accounts of Chinese Human Right Activists. So, it’s now thinking of pulling out of the Chinese market. This is a serious issue in China as Google, China has 31% share of the market. Since the origin of this hacking attempt was in China AND its not so easy to hack in to Google, it’s now reconsidering ‘to review their business operations in China’. Simply put, Google wants to pull out their company from China.

If you’ve been looking up the recent buzz that’s around, you might know what I am speaking about. For those people who don’t know what all this is about: An organized cyber attack was performed on Google on/before Jan 1st, 2010 which was intended – as google says – to procure the mail content of Chinese Human Right Activists and all such persons who are working abroad. Only two of the accounts were compromised with just the Subject of the mails disclosed (content of the mail were not given away).
But today, China announced a sharp increase in the number of Internet users.The timing of the announcement suggests Beijing is trying to persuade Google to stay and give up plans to pull out its Chinese version from the country. China is now afraid that if Google China, pulls out of its market, then “the business issue will become political or diplomatic issue” – as said by Xinhua, the Chinese official news agency. Apart from hacker attacks, Google is engaged in two other disputes in China. It has been charged by an association of Chinese writers of copyright theft as it displayed books in the local language without obtaining their permission. Google is in negotiations with the association but has refused to accept its demand to apologize. Google has also been criticized by the Chinese censors for allowing its site to be used for distribution of pornography. [Source: Times of India]

Let me quote Google on this issue:
Like many other well-known organizations, we face cyber attacks of varying degrees on a regular basis. In mid-December, we detected a highly sophisticated and targeted attack on our corporate infrastructure originating from China that resulted in the theft of intellectual property from Google. However, it soon became clear that what at first appeared to be solely a security incident--albeit a significant one--was something quite different.

Innovative & Unique Wrist Watches

My Casio DataBank WatchYup, I’m now down to watches. I’ve always had a fascination towards watches. I chose my watch based on my requirements. My CASIO watch (shown on the right) has a home screen display of time, date (full display), 5 Alarms with Text Message, Hourly Notification, Dual Time (for another time zone storage), Countdown Timer (max 23 Hours, 59 Minutes) with a repeat continuous feature, a Stopwatch with Split Facility and a Telephone Number Memory of 30 Numbers  with Names(I could have used that to my advantage in my B.Tech Internal Examinations, but I’m supposed to be a good guy, right? .. hehe…)

There are so many different and by ‘different’ I mean a lot more sub groups like – costly, concept, wierd, useful, geeky, techie, stylish, odd, imaginative, innovative, useless, heavy and so on. I managed to collect some stuff regarding some of the watches which fall in the above categories….  Have a look below and Enjoy…. Click on Read More for more details….

You can download the manual to any CASIO watch from here. For my manual, type “1600” on that page.

The O-Ring Watch By Phillippe Starck

Looking for functional, industrial design in a watch at a reasonable price? Starck-designed, Fossil O-Ring Watch definitely fits the bill with it’s uber-funky o-ring face and simplistic detailing. All for a cool $110 - comes in white, black or smokin’ grey.

Philippe Starck may have famously said "I believe in general that my job is absolutely useless" at the last TED Conference, but the designer-at-large is at it again: witness his new grommet-like watch for Fossil, which retails for $110. (core77)

 

planetary-watch

Spherical Eris Watch by Pierre Junod

This spherical watch was designed and created by Pierre Junod and named after the recently discovered dwarf planet Eris. Being a uniquely spherical shape this innovative watch can be used either as a pocket watch or has a small desktop. I’m not quite sure how practical a ball shaped to watch in your pocket would be. However it would definitely be a good conversation starter.
Its case is constructed from anthracite anodized aluminum with laser engraved figures the white hour hand and orange second hand are behind a mineral glass centre.
Each watch is sold with a natural rubber strap to hang from your neck and have Swiss Quartz movement. The orange top pointer shows the minutes and the white lower pointer shows the hours. Available to purchase from  Watchismo for $450 (USD).

Vulcania Watch

This is the Vulcania watch and it looks awesome. Designed by Fabrice Gonet and manufactured by HD3 Complication, it's got just the look I want in a watch. Which is a look that makes it a hassle to read the time and with some timebomb styling thrown in for good measure.vulcania-watch-0.jpg
Each aspect of the time is viewed in its own unique way. The hours has a Price is Right style rotating wheel and the minutes are viewed on a circular dial. A small window will also display the current date. Sapphire glass panels on the front and back and side port holes allow for all of the steampunk-y innards to be viewed.
The watch will be unveiled this April and there will only be 11 made. Meaning they'll be ungodly expensive. I'd tell you how much they cost, but it doesn't matter because I purchased them all already. And I'm going to destroy all of them except one. What good is a badass watch if you know there are 10 other assholes out there with the exact same one?

Hiranao Tsuboi Minimalist LED Watch is,

Sadly, Just a Concept

There's minimalism, and then there's this LED concept watch from Hiranao Tsuboi at design firm 100%. The LED lights forgo the need for a watch face by being interwoven with the links on the wristband. The look is sleek, and unlike many concept time pieces these days, I can actually tell the time.

 

237 Reasons - Why Humans Have Sex

ParkPlease don’t think that this is some porn article…. hehe…  Its Not. And all people who came here expecting to see some, I’m very sorry to disappoint you. Infact its exactly opposite to that. Its Research. Survey. :D

I found a link about some reasons for sexual behavior while looking at the mysterious (and disgusting) Oedipus Complex… and when I investigated a little further, I ended up with a PDF document which analyzed 1,549 persons to find out that there are 237 different reasons why people have sex. I have to say, I was pretty surprised. I thought people had sex for three reasons only:

  1. Reproduction
  2. Pleasure
  3. Social Relationship

So I downloaded the pdf and when I looked at the contents, I thought I HAD TO share this. Very very hilarious reasons. Have a look at them. You will Roll on the floor Laughing. You have to admit that having Sex “to change the topic of conversation” or because “It was an initiation rite to a club or organization”is funny. I know that this was supposed to be a very serious investigation into human sexual behaviour and everything, but I can’t help myself but burst out when I look at SOME of them.

As it is my duty, I warn all the children reading this, there may be some adult content present here, and you are not allowed to view this. Exit immediately… :D

This is the Glory Hole at Monticello Dam, and it’s the largest in the world of this type of spillway, its size enabling it to consume 14,400 cubic feet of water every second.
A glory hole is used when a dam is at full capacity and water needs to be drained from the reservoir.

Blond Mortician

A man who just died is delivered to a local mortuary wearing an expensive, expertly tailored black suit

The female blonde mortician asks the deceased's wife how she would like the body dressed. She points out that the man does look good in the black suit he is already wearing.

The widow, however, says that she always thought her husband looked his best in blue, and that she wants him in a blue suit. She gives the blonde mortician a blank check and says, 'I don't care what it costs, but please have my husband in a blue suit for the viewing.'

The woman returns the next day for the wake. To her delight, she finds her husband dressed in a gorgeous blue suit with a subtle chalk stripe; the suit fits him perfectly.

She says to the mortician, 'Whatever this cost, I'm very satisfied. You did an excellent job and I'm very grateful. How much did you spend?' To her astonishment, the blonde mortician presents her with the blank check.

'There's no charge,' she says.

'No, really, I must compensate you for the cost of that exquisite blue suit!' she says.

'Honestly, ma'am,' the blonde says, 'it cost nothing. You see,

Two men dressed in pilots uniforms

Here’s a damn good Joke on Pilots….

 

Two men dressed in pilots uniforms

Two men dressed in pilots' uniforms walk up the aisle of the aircraft. Both are wearing dark glasses, one is using a guide dog, and the other is tapping his way along the aisle with a cane.
Blind Pilot
Nervous laughter spreads through the cabin, but the men enter the cockpit the door closes, and the engines start up. The passengers begin glancing nervously around, searching for some kind of a sign that this is just a little practical joke. None is forthcoming.
The plane moves faster and faster down the runway, and the people sitting in the window seats realize they're headed straight for the water at the edge of the airport property. Just as it begins to look as though the plane will plow straight into the water, panicked screams fill the cabin.
At that moment, the plane lifts smoothly into the air. The passengers relax and laugh a little sheepishly, and soon all retreat into their magazines and books, secure in the knowledge that the plane is in good hands.
Meanwhile, in the cockpit, one of the blind pilots turns to the other and
says, 'You know, Bob, one of these days, they're gonna scream too late and we're all gonna die' !!

Windows RUN Commands: Complete List

Here is an ‘almost’ complete list of Run Commands in the Windows Operating System. Many of them save a lot of time. Instead of searching for that program in the huge list of installed ones, all you have to do is to open Run and type the Command. You don’t need to remember everything. Just remember the ones you use regularly. I’ve highlighted the ones I use regularly. Have a look and start choosing and using. To open the Run terminal – Go to Start –> Run… or
press and hold down the Windows key and press R (Win+R). Type any one of the below given codes and then see the magic (not exactly)….
Run
Note: Some of these Run Commands need the programs to be installed. For example – typing ‘winword’ in a computer that doesn’t have Microsoft Office in it, gives an error. 

PC Booting Slow? Speed up System Start Up

Here is a small tweak (not exactly) to speed up the System Startup. The system start up speed may go down due to several reasons. But the most common one is the Clustering of the system startup programs. Too many programs start when the user logs in or the system restarts. This is a very big hassle. Many viruses/trojans too can be found in the system startup folder.
Removing these will have a (very) noticeable effect on the start up speed and may even prevent some malwares from starting up. Here’s how you can remove them.

Follow these steps to remove the startup programs in Windows Operating System:

  1. Go to Start –> Run

Adults Only – So all the kidz out there….  its illegal to continue:


A young girl discovers that she is pregnant.

Scared, she confides this 'news' to her mother.
Shouting, cursing, crying, the mother says, "Who was the pig that did this to you? I want to know!"

The girl picks up the phone and makes a call.

Half an hour later a Ferrari stops in front of their house. A mature and distinguished man with gray hair and impeccably dressed  in a very expensive suit steps out of it and enters the house.

He sits in the living room with the father, the mother and the girl, and tells them:

"Good morning, your daughter has informed me of the problem.

However, I can't marry her because of my personal family situation, but I'll take responsibility.

If a girl is born I will bequeath her 2 retail stores, a townhouse, a beach villa and a $1,000,000 bank account.

Girl Kid
If a boy is born, my legacy will be a couple of factories and a $2,000,000 bank account.

Happy New Year – 2010

Here’s the wallpaper I designed for 2010. Only spent about Half hour on this (haven’t touched Cinema 4D software for over a month, so forgot all the concepts), so the image is not eye-appealing or anything. Zoom in to look at the details. Click on the Image to open the Original Version. Believe me. It looks much better. I should have colored it. Well, nobody except me opens the blog, so why bother?? :D
