Google Fit App

This would be my first post on a fitness app! After speculating for quite some days, I finally tried out Google Fit App.
This app calculates the number of steps made.

The best part is:

1. This app automatically detects whether you are walking or running or cycling.
2. This app does not drain the battery! 🙂 How pleasant.
3. There is also a graph.

Though this app could be developed with a different purpose, I would love to see few additional features.

1. The distance covered in each activity accordingly.
For example if am walking 100 steps and running 100 steps, I would like to see the distance covered separately during walking and during running.
2. The route map. If I have ran/walked/cycled outside the map of the route would be great for future use.

Personally I would recommend this App! I would do some more testing and usage in the meantime.

Life is tough – 58 (Wifi turns off)

Windows system crashing is nothing new. When it crashed it was so bad that wifi got turned off. What would we do without wifi! 🙂
Simple steps should resolve this issue and this could be same solution for any laptop.

Goto My Computer -> Properties -> Device Manager -> Network Adapters -> Realtek Wirless LAN. Right click on this and click on enable.

Now everything is back to normal.

I – Movie Review (Tamil)

Lot of hype surrounding the movie “I” and with Shankar being the director every reason to watch it. There are other big names too AR Rehman, PC Sreeram. The additional attraction was the character of Vikram from trailers and posters, the female lead Amy Jackson.
Vikram and Amy Jackson have justified their performance. For people who watch Big Boss season 8 would be familiar with Upen Patel (the guy who flirts with Karishma) who as a villan does a good job and Suresh Gopi.

The movie begins with kidnap of Amy Jackson from marriage hall. From then on the movie toggles between the past and the current. Vikram as Lingesan aspires to be Mr India and as a beginning wins Mr TamilNadu. By virtue of fate gets in contact with Diya (Amy Jackson) who wants him to model with her for advertisements. From the time of he winning the title and getting the soft corner of Diya, Linga (name changed to Lee) makes more enemies than friends.
Its all these enemies who come together to plan against him.

The China part of the shooting has PC Sreeram weilding his magic. Any place would look beautiful through his lens and with a breathtaking spot one can imagine how it would be.
AR Rehman is good in certain songs and am still wondering whether this was a semi-musical movie? Suddenly when the movie could have come to an end there is a song and some more sequences.
The songs were bonus to lot in the theater, some went to toilet and some went to fetch beverages! 🙂

In the end all is well that is well. Lingesan is back to normal.

Like many other Shankar movies there is loads of graphics, make-up, picturization of song sequences.

With so many good things what is wrong with the movie?
1. It is too long 180mins is just just too too long.
2. Weak script and often told story of love, revenge, love.
3. The movie goes down the tempo lot many times that one feels whether this is Shankar movie.
4. No message or the thump which we have seen in Shankar movies
5. We do not want to see just a love story from Shankar and we still have Endhiran in back of our minds.
6. Poor logic.
7. Too many songs for Shankar’s satisfaction.

I would not say this is movie one should not miss. I would rate it as 1.5/5.
