Dilip Chhabria makes hot Nano even hotter

For once i don’t agree with Chhabria, his version make the Nano look even uglier at least from the front. It will cost nearly 80000 Rs to get this modification done to your Nano. And i bet it would also reduce the mileage due to the weight this new styling adds on

Design changes that don’t add to the product are always bad, its will be available at carnations.

Google searches 3G prospects in India

There was a news report recently that Google is entering the 3G spectrum auction race.

Don’t dream of getting an Google connection for your mobile. All they are trying to do is what they did in the US. They bid in the 3G auction only to make it open, once they knew it would be open they withdrew from the race.

I am not saying it’s a bad thing, they are in it to just ensure that the 3G auction will be open and the carrier don’t get too much power.

Sources in the telecom industry say Google is looking at broadband wireless access, or BWA, in the country and may participate in the auction with an Indian partner. BWA is also known as Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access, or WiMAX.

Fascinating to see new worlds being created

newworldI heard in class about how all these countries were once a single island. They broke up and drifted apart to create countries and islands etc. It’s fascinating to see one happen in our life time.In Ethiopia this is happening now.

A 35-mile rift in the desert of Ethiopia will likely become a new ocean eventually, researchers now confirm.

Human Body Is Built for Distance

Fascinating to see that Human can out run most mammals. No wonder then, that we are the dominating species of this world.

Most mammals can sprint faster than humans — having four legs gives them the advantage. But when it comes to long distances, humans can outrun almost any animal. Because we cool by sweating rather than panting, we can stay cool at speeds and distances that would overheat other animals. On a hot day, the two scientists wrote, a human could even outrun a horse in a 26.2-mile marathon.

Aluminum car made for Mr.Orcacle

alucar

This beautiful car was commissioned by Larry Ellison. Kirkham motorsports built it in aluminum in 2 1/2 years. On their website they have a detailed book in pdf form for you to read about how it was built and what went into making this beauty. I wish they made a documentary rather than book. That would have been far more interesting to see.

Gprs settings for most carriers

I found this website that has Gprs settings for most carriers from all over the world. It could be useful to you if you want to know the gprs settings for your providers. Only five indian carrier providers are there on the site.

But that could be because some of the carrier like bsnl uses three to four different settings depending on the region of india you are living.
