I just lost 47% of my hair trying to figure out a simple problem. All this for a simple 2 minute solution. I wanted to run composer and for that, I wanted to install PHP manually. (There’s no need to. As far as I have read, it should work well with WAMP packages like EasyPHP […]
Or why my laptop was overheating! In March, I wanted to replace my Dell which was good but was giving frequent blue screens. I was tired of endless blue screens and wanted something good. I am a gamer as well, so I ended up with two options: A Lenovo laptop with high end specs. A […]
Ubisoft, Ubisoft, Ubisoft. Seems like they are competing with EA for the throne of ‘Most Hated Company’. It is hard to believe that the company that made game series like Assassin’s Creed, Prince of Persia and Far Cry is now focusing on money more. Even that is nor a problem. But now, they are not […]
I just went through a letter to Amazon Executives from Kivin Varghese. It’s quite long at 29 pages. You may read it here. Here’s a summary: Kindle team wrote buggy software and Kivin’s manager, Munira, didn’t listen to anything about improvements. Personally, you can get an idea of her incompetency from the fact that she […]
There was a rumour about Apple reintroducing iPhone 4 in India a couple of days back. When a friend told me, I was hoping this would not happen. Today, I woke up to the news of Apple reintroducing iPhone 4. That too on the front page of newspaper. A full page advertisement showing iPhone 4 […]
Jason Kincaid recently wrote Evernote: The Bug Ridden Elephant. This post made to top of Hacker News and echoes lot of thoughts that I have about Evernote. I know it is heartbreaking to see something like this said about your product, but this is what many users think, just see the comments on Hacker News. […]
If you are not making relations online, you are failing.
The moment you hear this, get out of the organization. I have no idea why people have this strange idea. Maybe it came from management, maybe it came from the society at large. Wherever it came from, it is toxic! Recently, I have had a few incidences where this came up. First, a small project […]
Paul Graham found out why politics and religion tend to have such useless discussions, because one does not need a set amount of knowledge to be an expert. There’s nothing required except a strong opinion to participate in religious and political discussions. And once you have a strong opinion, you don’t need anything else. You […]
As a developer, you will find 4 types of clients. The CEO, the manager, the semi designer and the angel. Learn more about them in the post.
If you want to be productive, there’s one simple thing you can do: Disable all notifications right now. Notifications can be really distracting and break your workflow. And while you might be thinking that’s not the case, just try it for a day or two and you’ll realise. Unless you are in a job where […]
In India, there’s a certain mentality that seems to be there. And it’s not customer is always right! It’s about providing service. And unlike many companies who are totally head over heels about providing fantastic customer service, Indian companies are about providing least good service. Just a bit better than the competition. Latest example I […]
Free to Play is one category of games that I stay away from. No matter what, I like my games the classic way: I should be able to play them offline. They should not stop me from playing unnecessarily. I should be able to play without an online account requirement. I should not be banned […]
Yes, you read it right. It is Microsoft Word, that document editor from Microsoft. Seems like Microsoft is going in right direction in at least one department. I guess now I know why Microsoft is not updating Windows Live Writer, because they have a better (though paid) alternative that is much better. I have used […]
Heard this from Col. Aman today: I was there when we exchanged bodies with Pakistan. Indian bodies were mutilated and in very bad condition. We returned Pakistani bodies wrapped with their flags and with their national anthem playing. Pakistani soldiers couldn’t look into our eyes. India won the war that day. This is what defines […]
This is the best game I’ve played on iPad and iPhone. It is simple, addictive and hard like anything. Even the easiest game mode is “Hard” followed by harder and hardest. And if you complete those, hardester and hardestest are in line. If you like simple games and want a challenge, get this game. [Super […]
It is plainly the second best game I’ve ever played. Well, I am a bit biased towards Assassin’s Creed 2 because of its medieval setting (I love swords and blades) and a somewhere better character, Ezio. But Batman is not far behind. I love the approach. All the survey and analysis that Batman does while […]
We are like a grain of sand on a planet which is like a grain of sand in a galaxy which is like a grain of sand in the universe! What will you leave?
Instrumental music just grows on you slowly. And you tend to line it only when it reminds of something. I liked Assassin’s Creed 2 and 3 mostly because of the greatness of games.
Ridiculous things happen. I just spent an hour troubleshooting my blog. TinyMCE was not working and I was really worried. I was about to switch this blog to Tumblr when I noticed something, many menus on Tumblr were not working as well. And a small bell in my head rang, “I am behind a proxy […]
Ferrari Sucks. They make so expensive cars. I mean, seriously! A Tata Nano costs much less, still moves and gives better mileage than Ferrari. What’s the problem with all the people using Ferrari. They all are idiots, rich people who are fools. Now replace Ferrari with Apple and Tata Nano with Android and you have […]
A small review of my friend’s portfolio. Visit at Sankalp Sinha
Love Android, go and sleep with it. I have no problems, but if you think that berating iOS makes Android better in any sense, you are an idiot!
