More I use my Em250 netbook, more I like it. Atom 270 powered this cute machine supports 6.5 hours of decent battery life in typical Kubuntu/KDE4.4. This is not a laptop/desktop replacement but decent enough for my day-to-day work and leisure (browsing, emailing, code review, document reading/writing, movies). I really like it’s brushed metal look around the keyboard,  cute trackpad and bright LED display. Anyway, after 4/5 years I have bought a laptop/netbook for myself (I have been using the office one since I returned to India) and I need to use it for at least one year before I give it to Aditri for playing 🙂

What am I doing?

April 25, 2010

Starting a startup and helping a few startups and grownups to start afresh. I have found that there are way too many people unhappy with me (in my work/public life) but I can’t help ( there are a lot who are happy with me also ). There are nothing emotional in my recent decisions …. all are professional decisions which has lead to inevitable circumstances [my biggest critiques …. are you listing?]. Moreover, I am happy and my family is supportive.

Sometimes I wonder why do I always get into startup and uphill struggle to make it a valuable organization where people love to work. It’s because I like it. The stable job with secure future does not excite (kick??) me since the beginning. Thats why I am again starting / helping startups. It’s the way of life 🙂

Taxi – DUDE … u are missing in the action … 4D’s 3D is rolling again in a common thread but in different directions.

My first Android phone

April 25, 2010

Samsung Galaxy SpicaAfter working with Android since 2007 (in infamous android kernel project) and hating Android really a lot, I finally purchased an Android phone. Samsung Galaxy Spica I5700 (cheapest android phone in India). It’s a neat phone featuring 800Mhz processor with Cupcake built in. Now it’s the time to hack into it to get a root shell and flash Eclair.

My love/hate continues with Android/Samsung. I hate them both but can’t leave without them.

Update : Full reset code works in this phone also *2767*3855#
