Really Rich Word Processor, Adobe Buzzword

When there was lots of hype that web based word processors will take over desktop versions like MS Word, I argued, unless word processors go Flash based to provide rich and fast interaction, there is now way users in general embrace web based word processors.

Well Adobe brings a web based Word processor called Adobe Buzzword. Its pretty cool, supports a huge font set, allow collaboration and document sharing and of course you can convert the document to PDF file.  The editing itself is so better than other online word processors.

Adobe ConnectNow to all your Conference Needs 

Forget about expensive Webex. Here is a free alternative that has everything you ever wanted in a Web Conference software, absolutely Free. Share your desktop, no need to setup a separate conference bridge, it is built with Audio support so you can talk right away just in seconds. Share your files, chat with attendees, explain using a white board. If that is all you ever wanted, what about the video of You on the conference. You can just use a webcam and put yourself on the conference. I just tried a simple meeting, I just love it.

Just one huge catch: Free version only supports 3 participants.  3 is too low for a conference, at least for me.

A 5GB File Vault

Adobe.com also provide a 5GB file storage for all your documents. Fantastic.

If you are on the net recently, you must not have missed, the online Photoshop, Adobe Photoshop Express that comes with its own 2GB storage for all your images. So finally the web collaboration is taking place, big at Adobe.

Adobe Acrobat.com - Work. Together. Anywhere.

You Are What You Think People Think About You

There are about 6.7 Billion people in this world that we know of.  Whether you believe in ‘Creation’ or ‘Evolution’, this human race started with a tiny number. It is quite amazing to see how fast it multiplies. What is more amazing is that every single individual in that 6 billion crowd is born ‘unique’.  Quite literally, you are born to be one in a billion, whether you believe it or not. “ This was the Introduction to my latest and last speech in Toast Masters club, ‘One in a Billion’ as part of International Speech contest. 
As much as I believe that each one of us can be that 'one in a billion' personality, I admit the reality as I perceive it and some times feel alone in that belief.
A famous quote says 'You are what you think'. It is also true that 'you are what you think people think about you'. If you think people think you are smart, then you act smart and become smart. If you think people think you are dumb, you will become dumb even if you are not, a…

Cooking looks like an unforgiving art

When you are writing software, you always get a second chance. In fact, lots of chances to get it correct. You have compiler warnings, failed test cases and some times crashes alert you that something is not right and will give you a chance to correct. And you get literally unlimited chances to apply those corrections. 
Well, cooking looks to be totally unforgiving in this respect and on any given day, you may get just one chance to get it right. If you fail, you fail. Try again right away if you have patience of starting it all over. Or start over some time later or next day. But not much of a second chance to correct a mistake. 
More ruthless, when it comes to salt. If you put just a little more, even a tiny little more, it never hesitate to show what it got. Totally ruthless. End result will be a failed dish that no one will be able (and/or happy) to eat. And most dishes, you may not be able to add something little more to offset it.

Little trick I learned the hard way, start on …

Did NDTV Just Twisted Words?

I have recently spotted quite a few places where NDTV title doesn’t exactly say the same as the details in the article says. Lost in translation? or just plain twisting for journalistic sensationalism?Title says “'AAP doesn't treat women as humans,' says founder member Madhu Bhaduri as she quits”, but the quote in details says, slightly differently: “In this party, women are not considered humans” (see the text highlighted).Source : NDTV.comYou may say, they effectually mean the same thing. Is it? Even if they mean the same,  Why not use the same exact phrase in both places?
