Modern Vision zone:

Just thought about the space that we are left with, without gadget in front of our eyes. After a bit deliberation, I could put down the items as below.
Divided our eye vision into a 3x3 squares or 9 quadrant and fit in the gadgets. With new smart watches coming in and occupying quadrant 7 or 9 (if right or left hander), chance of people getting neck pain may increase.
Q4 and Q6 are occupied by 10-20% of people if they are using dual monitors or triple monitors but a rare case.
Now tech companies can explore the real estate available in Q1, Q2 and Q3 which might come in future. A point to note, google glass covers all the quadrant.  The color code is as below.
  • RED – completely occupied
  • Orange – other gadgets can explore here
  • Yellow  - very less users are here so can be explored
  • Green – free to explore

Might be a haphazard way of writing but should be a starting point anyway. Writing after a long time ( lot of hectic work and changes in family kept me away from this).  Will ensure this post is interesting. 

What we miss?

The recent Christmas vacation made me to think as this. I have not seen people planning for any long leaves during our festivals but we plan when our owner's festival come.  Not sure in future, people will really forget our festivals.  All the IT Companies ( whose bosses are in different zones) are making these happen.  

People from different states come and work at a common place. Yet they find little time to travel back to their natives.  How come a day holiday for Diwali will help a person working in Bangalore to travel to Delhi and come back. A flight ticket would be expensive at the near moment as well. So we skip it. But when Christmas came, we had no work, most of the cubicles were empty.  IT - the boon is also having a negative influence on our traditions. We are MISSING something.

I beleive any changes will always show signs before it changes completely. We are slowly losing our closeness towards our religions, culture etc, here.

Remember recently reading a post somewhere : A birthday party invited by some one. The party was mostly attended by parents and there were very few kids alone. When the host asked for the reason, he was shocked to hear that most of the kids were in some trainings ( Swimming, skating, singing). We are blocking the essence of parties/functions to the newer generations. As read somewhere, tomorrow our kids will see the Tiger only in books. 

See not to lose any of our old wonderful fragrances given by our forefathers/religions here. We have a very rich culture right from history. There is still a lot to come. Think about it.....

Logging after a long gap

Hectic schedule and bit of travels between kept me away from the blog.  I am leading a nomadic life. Recently had a chance to get my hands dirt on my Point & Shoot camera. Took some snaps of our campus which I am posting here. 

Want to share few quick bits that lingers in top of my head currently as well....

  • New Horizon will reach Pluto by 2015 after a travel for 9 years ( launched in 2006). This is also the fastest man made object currently
  • VY Canis Majoris is the largest known star to us. To compare its size, assume Sun as your first and a mustard is Earth. Now replace Sun with VYCanis Majoris (will henceforth call it as VY) and Earth with Sun.  
  • VY when replaced with Sun, will occupy till Jupiter - which means Earth will go inside its body
  • The giant red eye in Jupiter is almost equal to size of Earth. Ideally it is bigger than that. This is a storm that is always present in Jupiter. Imagine a storm that is to size of Earth:-(
  • The solar flare is a ring created by fire as it gets erupted on the sun surface and get back to it like a ring. A typical solar flare can hold 100 Earths inside its ring.

Blogging from iphone

First time I am trying to blog from my phone. I am posting the poto of our dog Tuffy here.

Recently completed reading a tamil book by Madhan "Manithargalum marmangalum". It talks about ghost and UFO. As I have already read enough about UFO's ( you can see in one of my earlier post about UFO), it was a refresher course when I read it. The details about Ghosts were interesting.  Nice book - if you get a chance to read, give a shot.

Current readings are: "Ki Mu Ki Pi" by Madhan and "A monk who sold his ferrari" by Robin. Dont know when I will complete both.
Back to iPhone from Wild

Atlast, my iPhone got repaired and started working. Was having trouble in handling the HTC Wildfire S but now I can heave a sigh of relief.  I need to install most of my applications again there but now I am comfortable. The problems I see with HTC Wildfire S are:
  • Screen size small so the QWERTY key board doesn't come handy for text message
  • Very difficult to edit any text
  • Sometimes the keyboard hides the text boxes partially ( in few web pages) and we could not see what is the text entered due to this.

What feels better in iPhone?
  • Screen big. I could see what character has been pressed
  • Easy to edit.
  • Context sensisitve key board appears ( for e.g: if you are typing email or web address, we have .COM, @ buttons ready there

Why India is not clean? I wont blame the Government - it is the responsibility of every Indian to keep the city clean. When I recently travelled in train, I took a small stroll towards the entrance of the couch and could see beautiful tracks but waste cups, packets came from most of the doors into the track. I pity the railway team for how can they clean our waste. Few things that needs action at this hour:

People should be aware of environment and inculcate the habit of cleanliness
Have dust bins everywhere possible with a clean board saying not to spit on it - even in trains where most of the petty shop owners sell fruits/peanuts/biscuits etc.
Always see to carry a waste bag to dump all wastes till you find a dust bin.

Let s keep the city clean
Software failure push people breakfast

A recent incident remembered me of Terminator film.  Most of the hospitals now relies on softwares for billing.  The software in a hospital failed which resulted in blunt stop of billing. This eventually resulted in stopping of blood collection as they need a bill receipt to proceed further.  People who came with fasting to give blood sample had to wait till the issue has been resolved. More people started gathering as timing passed by.

Am just thinking why do we rely on software or hardware when it is not fully reliable. Final comment:  Rely on something only when it is proved to be reliable or else have a back up method to resolve in urgency.  In the above case, a manual entry or some sort of would have eased the situation but that system was not in place in the hospital which eventually created chaos there. 
Currently reading a book by Osho

Started reading a Osho book in Tamil (Marainthirukkum unmaigal). Initially it was bit tough for me to understand but quite interesting. I could not fully believe in the things mentioned about thilagam, how people entered into Pyramid but the book keeps you tight in your seat.  Will be completing it soon.
