Volkswagen unveils the new Beetle

Yesterday, Volkswagen unveiled a completely new version of its iconic Beetle. 
Yesterday, at the International Auto Show in New York, Volkswagen unveiled its newest version of the Beetle. Only the second redesign in the brand’s 70-some year history, the 2012 Beetle retains many of the hallmarks of the brand, but with wide-rimmed wheels and a flatter top, it has a decidedly more masculine look than the 1998 redesign that brought the Beetle back into the mainstream.
If you like the design, it’s worth noting that the new Beetle comes with a number of features for the tech savvy customer. Like many new cars, it will have bluetooth, touch-screen radio, a navigation system, and ambient lighting. For those willing to splurge, a nine speaker Fender Premium audio system is available as well as 18-19 inch wheels, keyless access, and other fancy features.
In addition to looking more masculine, the 2012 Beetle has new engine options. Buyers can choose between a 2.5L gasoline five cylinder engine, a 2.0L TDI Clean Diesel engine, or a 2.0L TSI “turbocharged” gasoline engine. The car gets an estimated 40 mpg on the highway and 29 mpg in the city.

Movie: The Social Network

Today, I've watched the movie: The Social Network, which relates the journey of Mark Zuckerburg, the actual CEO & President of the famous social networking site: facebook.com/

Director: David Fincher
Writers: Aaron Sorkin (screenplay), Ben Mezrich (book)
Stars: Jesse Eisenberg, Andrew Garfield and Justin Timberlake

I really think its a movie worth watching and here's the trailer:

Now Kinect is controlling quadrocopter drones

Chinese Magical Hard-Drive

The author works at a hard-drive repair center in a Russian town right next to the Chinese border. A couple of days ago a customer has brought a broken 500Gb USB-drive that he had bought in a Chinese store across the river, for an insanely low price. But the drive was not working: if you, say, save a movie onto the drive, playing the saved movie back resulted in replaying just the last 5 minutes of the film.

The whole service center was rolling on the floor laughing. This was not the first time someone has brought a disk like that. And the previous drives were also bought in China... They opened up the drive right in front of the astonished customer. This is what they saw:

It's a 128-MB flash-drive. Working in a "looped" mode - when it runs out of space, it starts overwriting from the beginning. My friend said they're still trying to figure out how did the Chinese do that. Because the drive reports "correct" file sizes and disk-capacity. And the "looped-overwriting" does not touch the other files present on the drive.

The device looks pretty convincing - lots of tech labels and stuff... The Chinese salesman even saved something to the drive to demonstrate that it "works" in the store.

Windows Phone 7


Windows Phone 7 is a mobile operating system developed by Microsoft, and is the successor to its Windows Mobile platform. Unlike its predecessor, it is primarily aimed at the consumer market rather than the enterprise market. It was launched in Europe, Singapore, Australia and New Zealand on October 21, 2010, and in the US and Canada on November 8, 2010, Mexico on November 24, 2010, with Asia to follow in 2011. With Windows Phone 7, Microsoft offers a new user interface with its design language named Metro, integrates the operating system with 3rd party and other Microsoft services, and controls the hardware it runs on.
