The cream of life

Mumbai has a lot to offer, when it comes to food. The best part about this city is, one can choose to live life as he/she pleases. Extravagant or affordable, It's all there. For example, there is this Park View restaurant, where we eat. Opposite to that, I found one very interesting ice cream shop. The best thing is, it's all made right before your eyes, the way you want it. Rose Falooda and Fruit Salad are the chef's specials there;If he likes you, you'll get another full scoop to wash down. You wouldn't wanna spend a mini fortune eating ice creams in Park View. Get the point?

Is Free Software really Free? (A case of Google Android and Java)

Update: Google has open sourced Android and I will take back what I said. If you still wish to read the post, you may do so.

A lot of people have asked me why anybody would want free software, because there is no support or commercial licensing usually. Let me define what free is supposed to mean: "The freedom given to a user to execute the program; to modify the source code, compile and execute the modified program; to be able to redistribute the modified source code and the modified program."

We are not here to discuss if everybody is giving you a false free software promise, or if being "good" is essential for our life, but only to discuss a particular false software promise by organizations like Sun and Google.

Let us take a classic example: the Java platform. While Sun has been (for years) trying to free Java, they still can't push in just enough to make it completely free. And when they did GPL their OpenJDK (which at the moment, is probably mostly unhinder…

The Lazy Life ...

... a.k.a. I'm Lovin' It!

My typical day begins at 10 AM. I wake up, and mom makes the bestestestest filter coffee! Then bath, then eat (mmm.. BURP!). Then TV+siesta! Then go out. Then come back, eat dinner (uff.. mommah, i'm becomin' a baloon!) TV+Sleep. What a busy schedule!

When it comes to food, I never complain at home. My mom's been an ACE COOK, and have never stopped relishing her food. I am eternally thankful to the almighty for the same.

Mention TV and think CAS. CAS is the root of all evil. FTA channels are ohhkayy, but I'm missing out on all those nice movies and soaps thanks to CAS. Have started tuning to VH1... It's cool, plays some wonderful music. and no CRAP! So, there was this show called The Fabulous Life of the Hilton Sisters .. I was all like: "Wow! These two are this spoilt that they decided to make a whole series out of it!" but then, some time later, after watchin J-Lo's fabulous life, I decided that the Hilton sisters wer…

Computing Freedom

DRM. Digital Rights Management. The one word that's meant to protect the rights of the publisher, at the cost of the consumer. It is a scheme that employs cryptographic measures to prevent people from copying/distributing media content, especially music.
What DRM can do for you:
You'll be asked to Pay-per-use of music, video, software that you already bought.Allows the content producer to disable your rights to the published content through hardware measures, including permanent hardware disability, any time they wish to. Which means the music you bought, or the DVD your purhased may not be usable tomorrow, whenever the producer decides to do so.Discourages indie content publishers from making content, because of the royalty involved. Which means sending people the video you shot or the music you composed or the software you wrote could cost you a fortune.Curbing the freedom of the consumer, and milking him, by pushing him to pay a lot of money for a commercial service, though …
