I am not getting good response to Tuesday Readings post. I thought I would get. Anyways, I’ll still continue to blog about posts I liked most. The first one is perfect example that I pick post from anywhere. What makes a happy ending?? is a post from a blog which has total of six posts. But I liked the thoughts in the posts. This is something similar to my thoughts. I hope the author writes often after this.
The next post is about Nothing. The title itself is attractive. It’s nothing and started reading that. Remember the law of conservation of energy which we learned back in our school days? That is used here in a clever way. And I really liked this line. Just remember – if you want to make something, you can’t make it out of nothing.
How much you know about cancer? Are you aware of how deadly it is?? Do you know some cancer can be cured? Do you know which common day to day things can lead to cancer? Too many questions. Some of the answers are found in The Dust on Your Computer Screen . I never knew my monitor can cause cancer. I am most of the times in front of this. This post was an eye opener.
The last post is about pictures. The author is a photographer or loves to take photos. The couple in the photo looks nice. There is a different kind of brightness on their face. This link is Another evening in the park. I will not write much about this. I’ll move and let you read the blog and the pictures. 😀
So the winner of Talking Picture 03 is Sherry. Congratulations.. All other participants try next time. If you have won earlier that doesn’t mean I’ll discard you and choose other. You have equal chance. It’s the best combination of words that wins.
I am a movie buff and it’s been years. I have a portable VCD player which I bought four years ago. But watching movies on TV was not of my liking. That was because of the old TV set. Last year on my fathers birthday we bought a new 29″ flat TV. It is big enough for me. And since then I always wanted a DVD player. But the problem was that I wanted the DivX files to play on the TV. So I waited and on Saturday I bought a DVD+DivX player.
I tried searching the net for that model but I didn’t find the link for that. Before that I did some study about available players. There was no player which supported Xvid format which is as popular as DivX. I contacted a dealer nearby for a similar player. There was none available. I was also looking for a player which could play files from USB drive. And all this search ended on Saturday.
Before buying the player, I went to the showroom and asked for models available. I asked whether I can check the player by playing from USB drive and he said OK. That was on Thursday. So I prepared some file samples from all the movie files I have and dumped them on USB drive. Following are the details of file samples.
- DivX 5 with MP3 audio CBR
- DivX 5 with MP3 audio VBR
- DivX 5 with AC3 audio
- Xvid with MP3 audio CBR
- Xvid with MP3 audio VBR
- Xvid with AC3 audio
- Xvid with MP3 audio CBR whose FOURCC I changed to DX50 Continue reading →
Today’s blog is inclined towards technology. It’s a tech blog rather than a personal or something related to writing. So far the blogs I reviewed were all related to writing. The author wrote his thoughts and they kind of attracted me to reading. But this is different. This is about technology. And you should have knowledge before writing the stuff. Practical knowledge is icing on cake.
The blog I am talking about is The Chetan. To be frank when I visited this blog for the first time I was expecting writings from the author. The site name is something not realted. When you give a domain name like that you expect personal thoughts and writings there. Still I went ahead and started reading the posts. Continue reading →
Everybody is talking about iPhone. What’s so special about this gadget? What is making this different from others? I am not suppose to be reviewing this gadget. And I will not and cannot do that as I can’t afford this phone. Maybe some guy will allow me to use this phone and then i can review. But till then let’s get some cool features and technology behind this phone. Also the reason for this post is due to it’s launch in India. It is now provided by Airtel and Vodafone at a price which will make a deep hole in your pockets.
Apple is a brand known for user interface and user friendliness. After watching many videos and reviews I think it’s true. The first thing in features is the memory. This phone has inbuilt flash memory, It comes in two variants 8GB and 16GB. This is one of the greatest achievement in phone arena. Till date phones were running on memory based on cards which is slow. Flash memory is inbuilt and is much faster than memory card. That will improve performance but if you loose phone it’ll be difficult to recover data unlike cards which can be removed and can be read in card reader. Continue reading →
