Amazon Kindle 3

Or as i call it, a birthday gift that arrived early! :D

So Bhaaiyon and unki Behnoo, let me present before you, my new toy Kindle Wireless Reading Device, (Wi-Fi version)

Amazon Kindle

Its been one week i got my hands on it, and i have not able to put it down ever since! The best part about Kindle is that I am reading four books on it side-by-side, and it opens each book exactly where i left it the last time!! Trust me, its a really good feature for people with memory as bad as mine!

There have been situations, that the small handmade bookmark that i keep in my physical books fell out, and i re-read about 10 pages again, having a feeling of deja vu! (or story guessing super powers) :D  Its only after reading them, I realize, that I had already read those pages before! :P

Also, there is one super awesome feature which i am totally, totally, totally in love with! There is this Chrome extension - Send to Kindle. Many a times while working in office, I come across an awesome opinion article or a detailed analysis, which is basically 4-5 pages long. Due to the truckload of work, and lack of time (even for breathing, at times!!) I add the article to my bookmarks and then totally forget about it in a day or two! With this extension, i am just pressing a small button on my chrome, and it removes all the ads and clutter, formats the article as per kindle format, and sends it to my kindle over Wi Fi ! Neat!

Now all I need is a free service, that takes the latest articles from all the blogs that I follow (over 300), package them into one large file, and send them to my Kindle at the end of the day!

Anyways, I just spent about 3 hours, sitting in a roadside cafe, reading The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, and enjoying the most rare commodity in Europe - SUN !! I was amazed that there was almost no eye strain,  even after reading on an electronic device for such a long time! Good Going!

Btw, going by my old habits, I am not very sure that how much time it will take me to get bored of this, and get back to watching stupid reality TV shows! But i think, for the good part of my remaining stay here, I am not even going to switch on the TV again! (I already have 10 books and 17 long articles untouched in my Kindle!)

And before i forget, Thanks sis, mom and dad for the early bday present! For those of you who want to buy this, here is the link on Amazon web store -> Kindle Wireless Reading Device, Wi-Fi, Graphite, 6" Display with New E Ink Pearl Technology


Yeh Saali Zindagi

Saturday, February 05, 2011

I heard so many reviews about this movie in the past 12 hours, that I had to watch it at any cost! And boy, i must say, it was an awesome movie! 100% raw, as i like it! Oh, and I should warn you beforehand - Do not watch it with your parents etc., or else, things may become a little uncomfortable at times! As the movie has lots of maa-bhen ki gaalis!

Actually, the situation is not too bad if you are a Delhite, gaaliyan obviously form a large percentage of the words we utter! :P

The movie has a lot of awesome punchlines too, ekdum blog pe copy paste karne layak!! :D :D  One of my favorite one was - Ishq aur bullet me khaas farak nahi hota mere bhai, dono nikalte hain chaati faadne ke liye !  :D :D Thought the best one came near the end of the movie - Log sunenge to kya kahenge, Ch*tiya ashuqui ke chakkar me mar bhi gaya, aur laundiya bhi nahi mili! :D :D Pure Awesomeness!!

Needless to say, I loved the movie!! Deserves atleast 4 stars!

By the way, has anyone else noticed, that the attention of directors has shifted from the (crappy) snow filled mountains of Switzerland and the jhuggi jhopdis of Mumbai to the beautiful and picturesque locations in Delhi! I think its the third or fourth movie in a row that focuses on saddi dilli ! Suck it Mumbai!

On a different note, after slogging my ass for 11-12 hours each day, continuously for 12 days, including last weekend :( , I finally got a weekend to sleep! Its a different story that its 4 am in the morning and I am not feeling sleepy at all! I have watched - Ye Saali Zindagi, 4 episodes of MTV Roadies 8 - ShortCut to Hell, Dance India Dance Episode 5 and 3 episodes of Friends as well!

Saala ab to kuch aur dekhne ko bhi nahi bacha hai!

Chalo anyways, I will go to sleep now, will be back in a day or two, with my report card on 30 Day challenge (Part 1) and also the tasks for my second 30 day challenge! Ciao!
