3 idiots movie review

Its rajkumar hirani all over, the real hero of the movie is its story (may be chetan bhagat). I think amir's job was just to bring the audience in... star power ofcourse!!! Otherwise omi vaidhya's acting was better than the 3 idiots combined. For those who dont know about this person (like me) google his name. Wholesome entertainer, does not preach anything. Go watch - best hindi movie of the year!!!

slow internet connection!!!

I am sure a lot of people experience this all the time, and i just got disgusted with my XP. I have a macbook and a windows XP, macbook is 2 years old while xp laptop is just 8 months old. I couldn't just figure why xp was so horrendously slow.. I probably tried everything that i could, but the thing wouldn't be fast enough.
Finally i tried a few things which i believe has improved the connection speed to some extent. I dont know if this would help someone, but you can actually try it...
1. Stop the windows updater, i believe it hogs the connection in the background....
2. Download this free system maintenance tool ... 'Advanced System care'.... this is better than a lot of tools that are out there...
good luck and happy browsing...

arundathi movie review

I was really apprehensive when i booked for this, tho' the reviews were favorable i was wondering how would a dubbed movie be, but thanks to a good screen play the movie was not at all a disappointment. The major plus is anushka, she has carried the complete movie with ease.

Graphics are not up-to standards but then good enough for an indian movie, anushka's dance is another drawback. On the whole the movie is an entertainer with some disappointments with logical connections and if you are ready to ignore all that, then yeah go ahead and watch.

pattalam movie review

I am writing a movie review after a very long time, what made me write about this movie??? was it that good that i had to write... well it was the other way round, i am still clueless as to what the director had in his mind.I honestly feel that a couple of boys could have been avoided, they were staring at the camera as a newbie does... Mr. Rohan krishna (director) you could have casted someone else or just done without them...

The boys barring two of them have done a good job! saving grace of the movie... jassi gift - good music score, other wise honestly i thought with these boys he should have delivered a better movie... i dont want to say anymore about the movie

Hathway broadband connection review

I got my hathway broadband 3 months back, i got myself 1 - Mbps 4GB for 4-months, it costs Rs 1000 for 4 months and in case you run out of 4G in between u can call them and renew your subscription for another 4 months. So far i have not had any problem with the connection. Except for the fact that my VOIP device doesn't work properly.

i typically use 700 -800 MB of data every month so this plan is perfect for me. Here is a screen shot of the download from a good server

i have seen speeds reaching 105KBps and i am happy with it.

wireless charging station

i have always wondered why with all the technological advancements that we have made, we have not yet found a way to transmit power wirelessly. As it is with other achievements i have always believed that even this would be matter of time before which it really happens. I have not read anything great after the Tesla...

Today was seeing the presentations at the CES and i saw this and well i think this is the first step... i might be a mat which transfers power but as the guy says in the video they could ship it along with the laptops and lo! i wouldnt have to be worried about my chargers anymore... intersting...this would open up a lot of upgrades (enhancements)...
