As expected the 11th game drawn and Anand one must say easily defended the world title. Congratulations Anand. http://live.chessdom.com/kramnik-anand-2008-g11.html
He, more or less singlehandeldly changed the face of chess in India. Incredible. Not many can stand up and claim that he could trigger a sport enthusiasm in a country as big as India. A champion of a generation.
Phew! After the heck of debates and discussions (over years) on the standard evolution of the IEEE 802.11n for multiple antennas (MIMO), now it appears that we are all in for a single stream (single antenna) chip. It sounds more like an 11g upgrade, or perhaps a conservative lead from there on? If Atheros believe this is is the way to go I have my belief that Broadcom and Marvell have it in the delivery line too. Here is that interesting new story at EEtimes.
An incredible article came from Rohit Brijnath today on cricinfo. Truly brilliant! I must say, it is heartening to see that a gem came in the middle of all these scuffle by the crazy Indian media, barking senselessly, discussing and debating for the Fabulous cricketers to retire. I am glad that, these fantastic cricketers (Tendulkar, Dravid, Laxman, Kumble and Ganguly) played in an era when I enjoyed the game so much. Without them, the game can never be so exciting.
Here is a list of some of my favourite Indian commercial ads. Thanks to youtube, I get to see them again! The adhisive brand “Fevicol”has produced some inredible and funny ads. Most of their ads stuck on to the viewers mind. Among the other funny ads, I liked camlin erasurs and marker ones. I better dont say too much here. As they say, the fun in an ad is best viewed and chilled out! Have a look and enjoy the fun and appreciate the creativity of these fabulous ad makers.
The old Ericsson mobile phone ad (I guess 1996). The concept of a “small” phone back in 1996 perhaps is too outdated for today. All boils down to Moore’s law!
Rimii Sen and Aamir Khan did a nice job here in this Bengali accented conversation. The coke ad is one of the better ads from the cool drink folks.
Fevicol: Simply superb ad from the popular adhesive brand.
Naukri.com’s famous Hari Sadoo funny ad:
How about this one. To be this is too good an ad from Camlin.
The Peugeot ad used to appear in Channel 4 in UK. It was an incredible ad. I am glad that this is there for viewing in youtube. Superb one.
