Appcache manifest file issues/caveats

Application cache (appcache) is a powerful feature in HTML5. However, it does come with baggage. Many (see links below) advocated ferociously against it due to tricky issues it comes with. For someone who is just testing waters, these issues may throw them off grid. Knowing them before hand helps reduce some unpredictable effects.

C-1, The Electric Bike, coming soon..

Soon the dream of having a futuristic Electric Motor Cycle will become a reality. The Tron-white vehicle, code-named c-1 and manufactured by lit motors, is foretold to be in showrooms by 2014. The all electric motorcycle will have gyroscope that will eliminate the need to put your foot down for balancing. The expected 200 mile range on a 6 Hr charge is not bad for a Electric Motor Cycle. Innovative technology that integrates with your phone and internet, makes it really futuristic. Did I mention glow light tires?


Here is a sneak peek

3 reasons to migrate to Disqus commenting platform

Over the last weekend, I evaluated DisQus commenting platform. I saw compelling reasons why Blogger's default commenting is primitive in comparison. Today I am launching DisQus on this blog. Here are 3 most important reasons that made this decision easy.

Eclipse Indigo without mylyn

Eclipse's new release Indigo (3.7) comes pre installed with Mylyn. And unlike previous installations Mylyn is tightly integrated with Eclipse platform package. The "installed features" does not show it as a separate feature to uninstall. It appears as if it cannot be uninstalled at all.

Why Acer a500 ICS update's distribution strategy is a failure

Acer released the Android Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS, aka 4.0) update on Apr 27th 2012, for its A50x line of tablets. The owners were ecstatic about the news. Nevertheless, the process of deployment for Acer and the installation for the end-users was nothing short of a disastrous saga.

Ugadi Panchangam and Android app

Sri Raghavendra Swamy Mutt publishes and distributes panchangas for every new telugu calender. You have to register with them over the phone. The Mutt will send a copy in either Sanskrit, Kannada or Telugu. For the benefit of people who live abroad, or who prefer to have panchanga available on their computer or phones, They also make it available on the web site. There is also an andriod app (apk) for the same. You can download them here.

 A copy of Telugu Panchagam is saved here.

Time to buy an ultra-book?

With net-books failing to hit off, tablets replacing almost every thing else, laptops have become almost obselete. To stay in the fray, laptop manufacturers have gone "air". Almost every laptop manufacture now have a thin "Mac Air" replacement, a lighter, faster, but much less expensive laptop. If you are in the market for one of these amazon as a decent offer

Been Busy

I have been busy with work, and life. Now, I realise It's time. I should start writing again. Writing releavs a lot of stress for me. Opens up new perspectives, slows you a bit to think rationally, and often gives you solutions which would otherwise be difficult to arrive at. They say if you want to learn something, you must write a book on it. I will try with writing blogs, again, about life, with and without technology . Lets see what I learn.

Meanwhile..

Happy New Year

Happy New Year!! Everyone!!
