Its a Boring world

with one comment

From past few weeks i am getting bored like anything, i have nothing to do and life is looking like a monotonous function. Doing the same thing every day, visiting the same sites every day and listening to same songs every day ( see my last.fm page for proof) is really driving me crazy, excluding the time i spend with friends its really boring and my blog really displays that earlier i used to post a lot whenever i used to be free it was a simple rule “Less busy life more post more busy life more posts” but now even with less busy life there are less post. but hey i was onto it, i have made almost 10 drafts this month but have not posted a single here.

I got bored of writing about my boredom so i hope whatever i have written will bore you to death and i think it  will remain with me till i leave on 25th evening…………………

No iPhone for Me

with 4 comments

iPhone

Well i know this is kind of a late post about one of the most hyped product the Apple iPhone which is currently being sold in USA for a hefty price and already being used by more then 5,00,000 LUCKY people or not so lucky considering they will have to use AT&T’s network for 2 years, sticking for a single operator for 2 years now thats something bad, I know manny people who dot stick to a single operator for more then 2 months forget about 2 years ooh where m i going. So aah… coming to the point what will i personally say about the iPhone i mean would i really like to buy it given i have the money, well the answer is surprisingly NO. i would like to tell you my points for that

1 ) iPhone comes with a 2 YEAR CONTRACT,well i dont know about what will be the case in India but that is a very strong point o me. I mean i would not really like to stick to a operator and miss those new SIM benefits lol
2 ) i know it runs a striped down version of Mac os X and Safari but it has got NO SDK ( Software Developement Kit) which means there will be no killer apps, it has webapps which are basicly AJAX apps which runs through Safari but then any Symbian phone with OS 9.3 or above can also run most of them
3 ) this might be a big reason for many people, iPhone has NO VIDEO RECORDING, cant believe what is written here but its true. It may be having that 2 megapixel camera but it really dont have video recording support.
4 ) NO CUSTOM RINGTONE ya you cant have one of your favorate mp3 tone as ringtone
5 ) NO GPS ya i know for most of the people its of no use but Google maps with GPS would rock
6 ) NO IM no SDK no apps no IM as simple as that but u can have those WAP ones but they suck big time
7 ) ALL IPOD ACCESSORIES WONT WORK that means buying seperate accessories for iPod and iPhone
8 ) NO FLASH SUPPORT which means although it has Safari Browser it wont be able to open those flash sites and possibly YOUTUBE

So my conclusion, i rather wait for Openmoko or go for Nokia N95

UPDATE:- There is you tube support in iPhone currently dunno how and most of these problems might get solved  with its new firmware which is expected to be released around September.

Some the biggest problem with Ubuntu that i find is copying a VCD ( the one copying whom is legal!!!), But not anymore here is a simple way to copy those VCDs into simple mpeg files u just need to install a program with apt-get and type a command and thats it. So first install vcdimager type
sudo apt-get install vcdimager
after it gets installed just type
vcdxrip
and you will find the avseq**.mpeg files in your home folder enjoy
