3D Display on mobile phones

       After a boom in the 3D and animation industry in recent times, mobile phone vendors are now all set to market phones with 3D displays. Samsung Corp. is the first one to sell 3D mobile, Samsung W960 Amoled 3D to the world. The 3D images can be viewed without using any special glasses.

What a Girl wants, What a Girl needs....

       No, I wasn't humming that Christina Aguilera song. I am in fact talking about the most mind-boggling question - what is it that a girl expects out of a guy?? Seems like there has been a lot of scientific speculation and theories trying to explain the answer. This one just caught my eye. Its referred to as "The Ladder Theory".

This Pie chart has been constructed based on data acquired from extensive field study.
  • Money contributes to about 50 % of the reason for attraction. Money also includes Power because one is often the reason for the other and both the terms are very closely associated. How much money is "more money" also depends. For a 16 year old, a guy who can afford a bike and cell are rich guys. But as women get older, the amount of money that qualifies a guy as rich also increases. Bottom line - chicks dig rich guys.
  • Attraction contributes to 40 % of the reason. Attraction can be further expounded as physical attraction, competition, novelty and others.
       Physical attraction is when a woman mysteriously transforms into a 7th grade retort when she sees a "cute" guy at the club or the lead guitarist of a band. This refers to guys who are handsome or to the muscular hunks that she happens to meet.

Dell now "cells" phones in India

       Everyone knew Dell to be the popular laptop and desktop manufacturer so far. But with the country's love for cell phones and the potentially large buyer market, its no surprise that Dell Inc. have decided to market smart phones in India. Yes, they'll have to establish themselves first before competing with other brands like Nokia which operate on the Symbian O.S and the more recent Samsung which operates on the Bada O.S, but they are willing to give it a try.

Paul the Octopus - Psychic or deserves to be grilled ??

       With the final round of football World Cup scheduled today at midnight, people are really gearing up to cheer for their favorite team and place bets. But amidst all this enthusiasm, there has also been a rise in the number of "Animal Psychics".
       The most popular one among them is Paul the Octopus. Paul predicts that Spain would walk away with the world cup today. This is an added inspiration for Spain. The Hollanders on the other hand want Paul to be grilled and served!
