Slumdog Millionaire movie review

This movie seems to be all the rage at the moment at theaters and movie awards.

So my expectations were really high. Movie more than lives up to it, its a really interesting story even though some times its seems bit far fetched.

But watching the movie brings all the bad problems in India to light and its hard to enjoy the something like that.

Its a good movie but some times too real to enjoy fully.

Its a movie about how a boy from slums go on to win who wants to be a millionaire show. And how he gets all the answers revealed to him.

Hope many more such movies come but with less reality and cruelty.

Australia are not no 1 anymore

After losing today’s fifth match against South Africa in the one day. South Africa have become the no 1 one day team in the rankings.

Australia are really struggling without their experienced players. In the last year or so most of their experienced players have retired like Glenn McGrath, Matthew Hayden, Adam Gilchrist. All their retirements were really badly timed. And their current experienced player are really out of form. Clarke, Hussey, Symonds are really struggling at the moment.

All this makes for an interesting cricketing scene. If any team wants to beat the Aussies this could be the best time.

Its sad to see my favourite team go through this, but i know they have some very good upcoming talent. So hope they will build the team soon and not take as long as west indies are taking.

Wolverine movie trailer

Out of all the super heroes in x men series i would only watch the Wolverine movie.

He is the only one that seems to have an interesting story and conflicting thoughts about being a hero.

Which makes for a great movie. It will be released May 1st and a few days later in India.

Hugh Jackman looks impressive as always.

Check out the Wolverine movie trailer

Impressive 100 meter photo

Looks impressive, many photos were stitched together to make this photo. It would have been even more impressive if it was some kind of event rather than just some random people.

Still impressive see the original here

Brilliant design solution for sports problem

A hockey kid designs pad that confuse forwards from scoring by camouflaging the pads to look like the net. Very good idea, its quite surprising how no one ever thought of it. Will not work with other games?

But as one of the comments says

The kid is brilliant. Unfortunately for the sport the last thing it needs is LESS scoring.

Asus Eee Pc Touch Tablet look impressive

I got an asus eee pc when they first introduced it. If this is priced under 25000 Rs. It will be a huge success. If they give around three to four hour battery life with this device it would make it a must buy for me.

The touch interface looks really amazing. Can’t wait for its release keeping my fingers crossed on the pricing.

Tech Crunch tablet looks cool

If this blog post and comments are any indication of the interest in this product. i think you should make it into a product.

Or

The easier option would be to tie up with some other big manufacturer like samsung, sony, lg or asus etc and bring it to market.

They love new products and you too don’t have to go through all the trouble of building a new company.

Hope you bring this product to market soon.

I can only imagine how good the device could be if Apple would something similar. Not dissing on tech crunch just drooling.
