Nikkon Coolpix S10 Camera

I have bought a new cameraNikkon S10 since my old one Nikkon Coolpix 3.2Mp has gone beyond repairs.
This camera is quite a good buy and worth the cost. Its not much Rs.14,500/- in Indian Market. This has 6.0Megapixel with 10x Optical Zoom and the lens can be rotated in any direction with self portrait also possible.
The advantage is the lens movement while zooming is internal and there is no external protrusion, this should save it from any damages. The cables, battery and the memory card are all same as earlier Nikkon camera so no need of fresh investment on that front. The quality of pictures are also quite nice. This has additional feature called VR, to nullify any effect of vibrations from hand and would always come in handy.
The disadvantage is the viewing an object for clicking is always through the LCD display so if the display goes for a toss then one would be shooting pictures at arbit. The battery section is slightly inside from the cover that one needs delicate hands for palcing the battery, though this is not much of a concern.
Check out the photos below. The first two were clicked at Spencer Plaze, Chennai and the enxt two were clicked on the way from Chennai to Bangalore.

From now on am back in action.

Life is tough – 33

Known guy (G1) approaches one (X1) for help in getting an idea for development of product. X1 also helps G1 with all details and also gives detailed information. G1 does not respond, after X1 contacts him after a gap of two months, X1 gets a response “am working on similar idea, by company non-disclosure agreement I cant tell anything”.
Is this called courtesy. What is the guarentee that G1 might not be using X1’s idea? This is the main reason why entreprenuership is not a success story in India. Such incidents creates fear into guys.

Chennai – Happening Place?!

Past 1 year has seen lot of things happening in Chennai, India. Probably what was never brought out has come out in the open in this past 1 year. Forget politics and cinema and other stuff.
What am talking about is professionals and entreprenuers coming together under one roof. Each one adding their few bits in the organising. The level of audience for some of the meets were seen never before in India for a meet of the kind. Yes, all were related to IT industry but still its a very good begining. For those who thought that IT is not for Chennai but only Bangalore they just need to look at the events. The way it was conducted and the participation. Am not talking any different the events were:
BarCamp, BlogCamp, proto.in.

But frankly speaking what I believe is lacking is the marketing of these events. Yes, the attendance is huge and there are people across places who know about it. Who are these people, bloggers. What about people who dont blog arnt they missing out on such actions. There should be enough writing’s in the media which gets the attention of public with regular pumping of whats happening. I definitely feel there should be some improvement done in this regard.

Proto.in – Conference of different kind


Proto.in – Create, Collaborate, Contribute was a conference of this kind was held for the first time in India. This happened over the weekend in IIT, Chennai. This was a conference where entreprenuers get to showcase their product to potential Venture Capitalist and also to professionals who could join them in further realisation of the product.
This was held on similar lines to the one being held annually in USA.
There were about 30 companies who presented and quite a number of known guys and it was nice to meet up with them after a long time.
The products presented some of them looked very simple and made many of sigh that we could have also thought of the same. Some of the ideas I listened to were
1. Helpdesk from Tenmiles
2. TracBac
3. SMS interface for ERP applications by ValueFirst (hope the name of company is correct)
4. Interface for CRM
5. Taazza by Arjun & Arun Ram brothers
6. Unleash networks

Tid-Bits:
(Since my camera doesnt work am lifting photos from here)
1. Jump start Jam Ramanujam painted in white at the center

(Jam is the guy in blue shirt with white stripes)

2. Arvind (4) U 24/7 knows how to allocate time and does not believe in (mobile) number game. He has listened to the song “Ek Lo Ek Muft” from movie Guru lot number of times and misunderstood the same.
3. Refer to the photo above the guy in the middle Sagaro whose blog gets listed for any arbit search of whatever your intentions & priorities are is into Short Film making. (Don’t go by the colour of his shirt or the search terms).
4. So much of fun we had at Cafe Coffee Day inside IIT campus that lady who took our orders ran away immediately. Nope no eve-teasing probably the noise we created was unbearable.
5. The probability of your order being not available in the Cafe Coffee Day is always 1 (One).

Misleading posts in shops

There is a shop A-1 Super Market in ITPL, Whitefield, Bangalore. In this shop there is a rack of 4 shelves. On the second there is a post pasted which reads “Ready To Eat”. Just above this post is bottles of Himalaya Anti-Dandruff Shampoo. The ready to eat stuff are in the shelf below this one. Shouldnt this poster be put in proper location?

Bakes & Corner

Bakes & Corner is nothing but a juice shop in CP Ramaswamy Road, Chennai located bang opposite Kirtilals Jwellery Shop.
Whats so special about this shop for a mention. Out here if you order a juice he doesnt stop with just one glas, how much ever is the quantitiy in the mixie jar he would give it to you. No extra charges for giving additional quantity.
Once you go there, you would want to be there having juice whenever you drop into that area.
