Credit where it is due. Microsoft improvements... →
As much as we bash Microsoft for being slow to adapt in various markets, we must give them credit, in light of how far they have come with Windows. Nice!
Anna Hazare vs Corruption vs Indian Govt →
While it is sad that the corruption has taken such deep roots in our country, Anna makes me feel there is hope. Hope if enough people unite and force the government to do something. It is my hope that the naysayers who complain that the Democratic system is being disrupted realize that there is good that can come out of this movement and it is worth fighting for, worth living for!
It's a wonderful machine... →
Fictional, but still quite a heart-warming thing to read. A post by David Pogue on Apple and Steve in 1999.
Steve Jobs: Today is that day... →
Today will be one of those days in history which marks the departure of the man who took Apple to such heights that few could imagine.

HP WebOS: Keeping my fingers crossed →
For the sake of the original idea and design superiority let us all hope that WebOS finds a new home. It is a very sad thing to be throwing away such great design just because no one had the boldness to volunteer to take care of it and maintain it.
Are you throwing out milk too early? →
Nice piece of analysis by Jason Chen at Lifehacker. Talks about one of the many things we worry about things in our refridgerator - milk - and how long can you keep it.
HP Touchpad sales →
This is disheartening to hear. As much as I love the iPad I really wish the Web OS platform succeeds because it has many of the design qualities of iOS. Besides that, we do need worthy competitors to Apple. A monopoly in mobile phones and tablets is not an ideal situation. We do not want Apple to be the Microsoft of the portable devices category, for better or for worse. But can the tech industry...
Version numbers in browsers →
If Mozilla were really serious about preventing people from depending on the version number, it’s not the About dialog that would lose the version number—it’s the version information sent to every Web server every single time the browser requests a page that should disappear.
