The Assignment

"When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life."

Gmail Attach file helper

This is real cool. Not a big thing to do but very helpful for scatterbeans like me who often forgets to attach file. Now If Gmail finds I have attached, Find Attached, Attached File etc and no file as attached than it pops a confirmation dialog to make sure you have not forgotten to attach something !! yay !!

Facebook can do a lot more

Building a fun place for 500 million people to share pics and play silly games is *NOT* that cool. I believe what more cool is to enable technology for freedom of expression and not to chicken out something which facebook is doing in the case of egypt crisis. They are okay to let their 5 million egyptian members down because they don't want to make angry egypt govt. and other countries under dictatorship. And expecially China where they are banned but want a pie of 420 million people using internet. If Facebook wants to remain a place where people hang out with their friends they certainly have to do more .
