Unique views of a unique person

Just trying a new experiment in my blogging style. Do give your comments. I’m a gr8 fan of the oatmeal

Google+ is all the rage these days. Everyone is running around for an invite. Sadly, Google can’t deliver. I was pissed the first day when i couldn’t use it even though i got a few invites. They seem to be adding people at random now (my research leads me to believe that you need to be invited by a certain number of people before you get to actually use it). So, why does everyone wanna get into google+ so badly?

Exclusivity. Its cool cos not everyone else is on it. If you are on it, it implies you have more connections than others. Is it any different from Facebook? Naaa. Somewhat the same. Just a lil bit more simpler to use; especially the privacy settings. So, for the G+ revolution to succeed, it has to be an exclusive item for months or years to come. If not, its gonna crash and burn like Google Wave(whatever happened to that?). Only a few exclusive months will tell if people stick on here or go back to Facebook.

On the upside of G+, you get
1) Google stuff to play with(seems you can share documents and maps etc.)
2) learn to add numbers (+1 +2 +3 etc)
3) upload unlimited photos and videos in albums
4) easiest privacy settings ever

So folks, just hold on till you get your invites and check out the new social networking revolution. Circle me if you get in.

Super8 – A review

Super8. Doesn’t give a hint about what the movie is about. 10 minutes in, you think its a horror movie. Keeps confusing you into thinking its a movie about a lot of things. and finally it hits you; alien movie. All in all, good plot, acting, direction etc. But you might get a bit impatient about seeing the shape of the alien till almost the end. But a good movie none the less. 4/5 (1 point less for making me impatient)

A New Begining

Times are changing rather fast. I know i haven’t blogged probably in the past 6 months (maybe longer). I have just gotten done with education. That means according to Shakespeare, I’m gonna become a soldier. Yay!!! War, with all the blood. Just can’t wait. Anyway, now standing at the crossroads, i am in a dilemma; “which path shall i choose?”.  Come to think of it, everyone in my stage of like thinks that. As it is, i can’t wait for my second childhood. But that’s a few dozen years away.

So, now back to blogging. Assume the big bang just occurred and I’m creating a new world for myself. start’s with a fresh look at the world. More to come from this alien-bear.

It’s been a while since i have last psoted. Probably I started getting bored of constant blogging and needed a change of scene. Anyway, i saw the strangest thing in all my years in the UAE.

Emirates road is 1 of the main highways in the UAE. Although i admit to have seen a lot of strange things, such as a ladder(Yep, that’s right…….. a ladder) in the middle of the road. Now, last week, I just saw something that would tip that event closer to zero on the scales. I  saw a SHIP ON A TRAILER. Not just any kinda SHIP. I approximate it to be atleast 40 feet long and wide enough to cover 2 lanes of road.

Now i only hope not to see a plane the next time i enter that road. 😉

Life on Facebook

As most of you readers are already addicted to Facebook, i would like you to see what could be the end of it all for you. Watch this video 1st. I stumbled upon it on Facebook.

You may have noticed that the person never signs out of Facebook ever in his life. We have become addicted to the site to a point that, whatever we think ends up on it in some form or another. It’s already the defacto storage room for all our photos, notes, videos etc.

I’m not gonna be paranoid and say something that I’m gonna regret. All i wanna say is, when you make a will, please don’t let someone inherit your account. It’s sooooo uncool. Instead, make it clear that your page be converted to a fan page that all the people who ever knew you can come and like or comment. BTW, if you didn’t know that already, Facebook does do that if your relatives show your death certificate. Anyway, ending the post; gotta get back to Facebook…… 😉

It is one of the most anticipated movies of the year. The reason may have something to do with our fascination over Facebook, the mother of all social networks. It is as addictive as drugs. People tend to stay on it much longer than anything else. OK, well, lets get back to the movie.

It’s all about the creation of Facebook. Mark Zuckerberg was a really normal college going kid, until he got inspired to do something great. Not because he wanted to be great or anything. All he wanted to do was to get into a few awesome rated clubs at Harvard. Hey, its not wrong to want to be famous. Anyway, his 1st enterprise at Harvard was “FACE MASH”. It flopped and blew up in his face gaining him notoriety in the process. All this takes up the first 10 minutes of the movie.

The rest of the movie narrates how Mark created Facebook, while stealing a few ideas, pissing off a few people. But who are we to judge, he brought us Facebook.

The movie is a must watch for anyone who as ever used Facebook. Good acting, direction, casting……… blah, lets just call it a good movie. Not to mention, it’s a true story.
