SAMSUNG S3 for Rs. 38000 …My Latest Crush…

I hate losing an argument, specially to my husband. Though he is a sensible man who is capable of exercising budgetary restraint (and vehemently preaches the same specially when I go jewellery shopping with his credit card), however when it comes to gadgets there are times when he is downright irrational!! Our most recent pother was during evening tea when he started hinting about buying yet another smartphone.  After a half an hour’s parley he convinced me that our smart phones were not smart enough. A smartphone should be much more than just a 5 megapixel camera coupled to the plethora of applications which we seldom use, it should be coherent to our lifestyles and an extension of our personality.  And if you are wondering what phones we use, it wouldn’t be fair to divulge any details, especially the name because all said and done, they’ve served us well and we did [+more]

iPhone5 vs Nokia Lumia 920: I Am In A Fix

“It’s here…the iPhone5..yay!!”, I announced while working (and surfing) at 2am in the night when the news regarding the Apple’s most anticipated launch had started pouring in. And to my utter shock, as soon as the magic words ‘the iPhone5’ landed in my husband’s ears, who was fast asleep till such time (he just loves his sleep!!), he literally sprung up from his slumber and just snatched the laptop away from me (on which I was patiently appreciating the latest beauty which Apple had recently bequeathed to the world). So much for chivalry! He was drooling at the latest offering from the Apple’s cart. “What do you think?”  I asked. “It’s stunning.” He replied and for the next half hour or so I was subjected to my husband’s unrelenting praise for the new iPhone and at the same time wondering where all of a sudden his sleep went. So strange [+more]

Why Amazon’s 7-inch Kindle Fire Has Become The Apple of My Eye.

The rains have set in. What could be better than a hot cuppa, some zesty pakoras and the intriguing company of Chekov (courtesy my digital companion- The 7-inch tablet). But unfortunately for me the yearning for this mysterious yet immersive world of digital literature  has come at a time when I already have too much on my plate. All sorts of occasions have suddenly popped up, be it my parents’ anniversary, our house warming party or the so- called brain storming session to crack the new campaign for a major client, I am required on a mandatory basis everywhere. Uff!  How I wish the world comes to halt so that I can make time for my 7-inch buddy!   And if you are one of those who are enchanted by neat technology, just like me, then you guessed it right, my 7-inch tablet comes from  Amazon’s hive. The Kindle Fire has [+more]

How A Classic App- iPeriod Keep Your Period and Pregnancy Worries At Bay!

Recently I got a panic call from a friend. She had missed her periods.  I listened to her paranoid voice for a while and had a sudden urge of asking her the most common question. “When did you last sleep with him? But I stopped. I didn’t want to intervene her intimate space. I fought the feeling of asking her about the contraceptive solution she is using, mostly because I didn’t want to worry her with a set of alarming questions. So, I pulled out my arsenal of apps and scurried through them in my will to find the app called iPeriod- which for years has kept a tab of my menstrual cycle and has helped me kept me aware of my ovulating days. I asked her about the date of her last periods and quickly added the first and last date of periods. The  app gave me an interesting [+more]

Review: Mountain Lion is Here and Its Roar is Indomitable

    Mountain Lion is here. Priced at $19.99, the latest OS upgrade to come out from Apple’s cart is certainly easy on your pocket.

What’s… Apppppp :-P !!

A letter from my pen pal in the mailbox, the year was 1989. Got my first e-mail in 1995. SMS Baby, get with it, its 2003 for Christ’s sake!! My sister used to say, and I did (…to the limits of obsession I’ll say!) With my insatiable need to stay connected, messaging had always been an integral part of my life, I guess. Then in the year 2010, I was introduced to a wondrous app called Whatsapp, a free messenger service that augmented my messaging obsession further and trust me, it was good… so good that for the first time in my life it was an app which prompted me to buy a smartphone, instead of it being the other way round! Short Messaging Service (SMS) has seamlessly blended into the picture of becoming a necessity for me, participating with me in all kinds of situations; a medium through which [+more]

Samsung to Add a Windows RT Tablet to its Already Popular Tablet Brigade…

There seems to be a great camaraderie  among  Samsung  and Microsoft. According to rumors pouring in, the new Samsung tablet will run on Windows RT and will be hitting the shelves in the month of October. Windows RT is an edition of Windows 8 that runs on ARM-based processor. As per a Bloomberg report, “Samsung has made a handheld computer built on Windows RT, the first version of Windows that works on ARM Holdings Plc (ARM) technology. Windows RT devices will be released in October.” The buzz is that the Samsung Windows RT Tablet will break away from its very own Exyons Family for the Qualcomm Snapdragon processors. Not only Samsung but Microsoft will also be using Qualcomm processors in their recently announced Surface Tablets. Windows, which is clearly side-stepping the tablet market, will be launching two versions of Surface—Windows RT and Windows 8. As far as Samsung is concerned [+more]

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1: A Champion Tablet

I hate Monday mornings, not particularly fond of Tuesday’s either. If you come to think of it I am not a weekday person at all! Here’s the thing. Each of my bleary eyed (weekday) mornings is a choice between breakfast and the previous day’s pending presentation on my laptop (yeah yeah..I’m a cribber, sue me!!)  It was just the other day when I was travelling in the Delhi metro to work (it takes 2 hours from the house to reach my office which without a doubt makes my morning blues worse) that yet another pressing deadline conveniently landed itself into my lap. I had no choice but to fit my derriere in minimum possible space available in the already overcrowded metro and to start typing on my 2.3 kg laptop was just the icing on the cake. And what could be more annoying than the fact that your laptop’s battery [+more]
