Lets say I want to buy an mp3 player but I don’t have the idea what is the ideal kind of mp3 player to purchase from the current market. There is an MP3 player section in the Electronic Goods category which sports a page full of useful knowledge about the types of MP3 players available. I did not know until now that there existed 3 types, namely

  1. Hard Drive Models
  2. Micro / Mini Hard Drive
  3. Flash-Memory MP3 Players

The crux of the above information will definitely help an individual make more smart choice as apposed to information got by just searching out the popular brands or pestering your friends. You wouldn’t have to search for Read the rest of this entry »

Minesweeper – Back with a Bang

Posted on November 28th, 2007 in Ajax, Google, Microsoft | No Comments »

If I asked you “What were the first few things you did when you purchased your first computer?”. I bet a majority of the answers would be open up the Programs menu and scramble for Games list. Then enjoy the most loved and sweet games such as Solitaire, Minesweeper, Spider, Pinball or Hearts. I have loved them and still do. They relieve your tension without any hassles of the big bad world of 3D games and work on the weakest of the configuration.

If I picked a favorite of the lot, it would be Minesweeper. It is a single game which employs strategy over luck. But I miss it at my office since none of the computers come installed with it. But in the current age of web 2.0 who searches the program menu any way? Its all out there open on the web. And if you think that games are blocked as well you are pretty right. But when the provider itself is Google, who can Read the rest of this entry »

The new Android SDK from Google is all set to make new standards for mobile application development. Android SDK in Google’s own words is,

A software stack for mobile devices including an operating system, middleware and key applications. Developers can create applications for the platform using the Android SDK. Applications are written using the Java programming language and run on Dalvik, a custom virtual machine designed for embedded use which runs on top of a Linux kernel.

Apart from the platform, the UI looks promising. It can be even slated to compete with the UI of Apple iPhone. The features are worth drooling over. Check this video presentation made by Sergey Brin and his associate, Steve Horowitz. Read the rest of this entry »

URL History – Firefox beats IE in URL Ordering

Posted on November 26th, 2007 in Firefox, Opinions, Reviews | 2 Comments »

If you are a daily surfer then probably you would have the habit of keeping your URL history alive for a very long period. This is because frequent surfers do not have the time to remember each and every URL they have visited over the last few days. They even dread to lose their URL for an article of their liking. That is why bookmarking sites like Del.icio.us, Reddit etc have become so popular. Storing bookmarks in the browsers itself has become a passe for frequent surfers.

The bookmarking sites are fast enough to load on entering its URL. But it is somewhat distracting to get to the required article or site by getting redirected from the bookmarking site. This is the time where the browsers URL history comes in to utmost important. And it is not a small feature to be missed out on. For me, it is THE Read the rest of this entry »

How many times you have cursed the feeling of finding fault in your CSS stylesheet and unnecessarily scanning the internet for searching the proper technique and ended up messing up your site design? If you were like me, then it wouldnt be less than every five minutes getting frustrated over minor mistakes in CSS.

But there is a simple solution out there on the web and it is Meta Titan CSS Builder. It does not actually give you the output but Read the rest of this entry »
