Story of My Life

Thursday, July 26th, 2007

It just seems that whenever guys from Tata Indicom Broadband call me for ‘settling the account’, my net connection goes awry. If this is not curse, I don’t know what is.

So, now…I’m just gonna sit back and finish CSI Season 5 – one episode followed by another.

Some Random Pics

Thursday, July 12th, 2007

The last few days have been very busy. Everything will finally fall in place from Monday(!). Well, hopefully. Getting back to college after a three-month long vacation is very difficult. It’s not the going which kills, the getting up early (sleeping early?) part does.

So today, for your viewing pleasure only, I will dump some random pics from my digicam to flickr. For those unaware, I got myself a modest little sucker called Nikon L11. I found out yesterday, the 2GB memory card couldn’t hold on to any more pics. At 3MB per pic, I’m looking at approx 700 pics to separate the good, the bad and the ugly before I go shooting again. Almost done deleting the useless ones and could-do-without shots. Unfortunately, the L11 doesn’t offer much to tinker around with. Whatever it does, I fiddle around to find the best settings for a given condition. I will post some of the better pics which will make some sense for others. Just to state the obvious, no people, just the its and thats can be seen below. Beginning with the best shot I’ve managed to take so far.

Doesn’t it look just awesome?

Something you didn’t expect – iPhone in Mumbai

Thursday, July 5th, 2007

iPhone is the most expensive phone known to me. I’ve never been into cellphones and iPhone is something which I don’t really care about. For those interested, here is something you’d be interested in.

India to Get Unlocked iPhones via the Gray Market

If you’re poking around the city of Mumbai, you may be able to enjoy the Apple iPhone sooner than the official launch in the area next year. It seems that the gray market has completely opened up shop, providing celebrities and other well-to-do folks with unlocked Apple cell phones, but it’ll cost them a premium, of course.

I’ve seen unlocked iPhones already showing up at online stores in Canada and the United States, so I don’t see why they can’t do the exact same thing and ship the glossy musical handsets across the pond. Naturally, users in India may not get the full functionality of the iPhone, because many of the features may be AT&T specific, like visual voicemail.

Gray market dealers are offering to SIM unlock the iPhone for as little as Rs 1,000 (US$25), but that’s assuming that you can get your hands on an iPhone in the first place. Alternatively, they are also selling pre-unlocked units for Rs 30,000 (US$700). That’s for the 4-gigger.


If this is indeed true, I may get lucky to see the iPhone in person very soon.
