Meme : My desktop revealed

It was a week back that Shankar tagged me on the MyDesktop meme that has been going around. I promised to take part, so this is the post for it.

Site Update: Top Commentators list, Weekly Linklove

The Top Commentator’s list is commonplace now. Most blogs get extra comments. However, of late, Top Commentators list is abused. The blogger is forced to deal with hundreds of near-spam comments.

We’ve seen everything(camera, audio player etc.) and a kitchen sink thrown into a cellphone. Just when everything is cooling down, those blokes at Nokia’s labs have come up with a complex system to detect lightning. One of the pioneers in the field, the Finnish giant has filed applications for a patent for the technology. On […]

LEDs : Future of lighting, destroyer of incandescent bulbs?

It is an irony that the light bulb, long-time symbol of great ideas, will not be such a great idea anymore, as lawmakers in different countries are planning to ban the century old creation of Thomas Edison, because of its contribution to global warming. The successor? It is a big question, but at least for […]
