WHy Go for I-Phone 3GS...:-)

An outsourced story... But found good... Have a look :-)

1. By all accounts, the iPhone 3GS works at a blazing rate of knots. We always thought that the original iPhone and the 3G were reasonably fast. So when we are looking at a speed hike (Apple claims the 3GS is TWICE as fast as the 3G in some tasks) we think it is reason enough to get the 3GS! In fact, many of the new apps on the App Store work best with the 3GS, and that alone will be a major reason for app freaks to upgrade.

2. The improvement in battery life is a huge plus. While the 3G used to last for about a day, we hear the 3GS ups that by about 50 per cent. Now, that would save us the hassle of carrying a charger all the time.

3. The three megapixel camera with autofocus and 30 fps VGA video recording makes a huge difference to the iPhone 3GS, especially when combined with the option to tweak video on the device itself, not to mention sharing them online. Finally, we have a great camera on the Godphone.

4. Voice control allows you to play a song or dial a contact by just naming it. Really cool, we think.

5. The inclusion of a compass means your Google Maps will now orient themselves to the direction YOU are facing… very handy for GPS users. It will also enable us to use augmented reality browsers like Layar, where you can find out about an object by just pointing your camera at it!

6. We do not buy the value-for-money argument when it is based on tech specs rather than device performance. Yes, there are several devices that have faster processors, more powerful cameras and bigger screens out there, but none of them quite performs like the iPhone 3GS does. Now, that makes it value for money for us. Yes, it is expensive, but so are other high-end phones, which do not quite measure up to this one's performance. So why not go for iPhone 3GS itself?

All they want is a pleasant experience for us

My experiences with this gloomy world continue. I may sound repetitive and annoying, but there's a reality check for all of us who think that the world is fine as long as the Covid-19 doesn't hit us and our paychecks continue to flow into the banks.  The store in the picture is amongst the busiest in the area, always remains full and explodes with the people on the Saturdays. A typical brand in a store, let's say a Van Heusen makes about ₹200,000 to ₹220,000 of sales on the weekend. As of today, the store does about ₹10,000 to ₹15,000 of revenues of the same brand, and the footfalls are not even 5 per cent of what they otherwise used to witness. Ironically, a store of this size would have 8-10 salesman with an average basic salary of ₹10,000 to ₹12,000 a month and the balance they earn (~₹5,000-₹7,500) is all linked to the sales of the brand. For them, purchases from the store cover-up for the livelihood, savings and the investments and there are no concept of "work fr

The new age crisis

I don't know who I should credit or discredit, but last couple of years have been incredible for India and it's people and it is not in a good way. Disappointed to note that the politics has completely taken over us and the ideological differences have reached our houses and personal devices. We are not only fighting amongst us on difference of opinion, but also ensuring that the dissent against a majoritarian view is killed to its core, to the extent that the voice is never raised against any impending thoughts or disagreements we may have.  I am deeply saddened by the fact that most of us now are actually made to believe that the opinion shared by a larger section of society is deemed right since it has the weight of a the population around, and in case you have reservations to even contest that, you are probably branded as a threat.  I may have had little problems with CAA or NRC if it wasn't done for the political incentives and the treatment of the people not sharing t
