There is a map for that :P

I am an ATT customer for 5 yrs. but I haven't yet gotten myself an iPhone. All my iPhone friends just cant dig it enough. They keep trying to convince me, in vain. But I love Google Phone and the android philosophy. What is great is they teamed up with T-Mobile; which almost does not have any issue with limiting the capability of that phone (including VOIP apps), unlike AT&T.

On the other hand, The Apple and AT&T combine is all over the news with FCC notices and replies. Some of hubdub is getting clearer. Off late AT&T is also considering opening up the (read limited) iPhone plan. I dont want to flare another hate comment thread here, but, frankly for all the restrictions iPhone and AT&T impose, I feel like being treated as a 3rd Grader. "You can do this, but you cant do that. There.. Stop there".

Verizon is coming up with a lot of Android phones this holiday season. Verizon came up with this aptly witty video for poking fun at AT&T and iPhone ads. Two birds at one shot. dig that iPhone users!!


For now, I will just wait and watch (new Archos tablet?)

Javascript: Convert Strings to Binary (and representing in a nerdy way!)

I follow those GoogleDevelopers Videos. Sometime back, in one of the presentations on GoogleIO, there was this interesting string of dots at the bottom of each page of the presentation. They looked like random big and small dots. A similar bunch of dots were also on the T-shirt of a presenter was wearing in another presentation. While it seemed something in the pattern, I could not find what it was. Finally, another presenter cleared the matter that those dots are just binary representation of "GOOGLEIO" (So much for advertizing Google IO, Impressive!).

So I wanna do it. Takes me back to days of those DSP classes at school. Nerdy me had to churn some old brain cells. I remember those first programming language classes in Pascal and C when you were asked to do fibonacci series and converting a binary string to ascii codes. That *experience* came handy here: Check it out!

For those who came to copy the javascript code to convert string to binary, Here it is…

Add jquery in Chrome console

Many a time, a page you are debugging doesnot have jquery. This simple js will add(or prompt you to overwrite) jquery to any page from chrome console.
