The Much Hyped Apple Ipad is out, lets try to get some picture of Apple Ipad using the famous Google / Bing and Yahoo Search
Search Keyword : Ipad
Where is the Apple Ipad Image no way Google Images has failed us. Let try our hand on
Not So bad but it too failed to get the desired image results
Ok I am tired of this I am going to call my old friend Yahoo, lets check whether Yahoo can deliver
To my surprise its giving the latest ipad images with cache day also and its still able to provide the exact ipad pictures in next pages too
So the winner is our old Yahoo :) Google and Bing need to catch up with your Search bots they are showing the very old images.
So guys if you are searching for some images in Google please don’t think you cannot get else where. Google Image search was not that good, same goes with Bing and try Yahoo also.
Please always try various options rather than dying with one

I was so happy until a mail from my senior came with all my Tweets stats. I was shocked how come horrified but the truth is he did everything without my user id and password.
Yes there is a site called tweetstats which will give all your activity in Twitter with graph, your RT ( Retweeting) Ratio, whom you Replied the More, which interface is used web or any other 3rd party software
The Tweet density shows in which day , which time you are tweeting the max too
another option is tweet cloud, you can see the words you are using often
So this stats says i give 2.4 tweets per day :)
This can be used both as good and bad, it can be used for research and spy tool also. people can know whom your are tweeting more like that.
How ever ,now a days people can get the info in Google search and yahoo search hence its not a big deal.
Now pls dont try to put your boy friend / gal friend id in tweetstats and monitor them lolz

The ebook Reader and Tablet PC Market is heating up with Apple’s much hyped iPad
Now the News leaked in engadget was about the long running rumor of Microsoft Courier(a tablet PC) is true, we can expect that any time soon.
Dubbed as “Digital Journal” is awesomely portable powered by nVidia Tegra2 processor (SOC). The Courier has Dual LCD Screen, which is not bigger than 5x7 ( normal photo size) when closed.
Microsoft Courier is running on the same OS of Zune HD, pink and the core of Windows 7 Phone Series, its nothing but Windows CE 6.
This device will be a combination of Tablet, eBook Reader and net books which will be lesser than a pound and lesser than a inch. The second screen can also be used as virtual keyboard, so you can have lot of screen space.
Other leaked features were it will have hand writing recognition feature, built in Camera, Head phone jack, cloud storage etc.

Nothing has been confirmed by Microsoft yet but we can expect news about it by Q3 or Q4 of 2010. No details about pricing yet.

Remember Singaravelan Movie(Tamil) where Kamal hasan taps on Thai Amma’s Hand and says
“Ding Ding Ding Bummm” --- People have used this to found a new touch screen technology called Skinput ( I think People in Microsoft Research Lab has been inspired from this movie lolz (Tamil Lollu))
This future technology is developed in collaboration with Microsoft and Carnegie Mellon University. The system works with acoustic waves i.e. it has the ability to pick the Ultra low frequency sound also it can have a pico projector to display the User Interface on the Hand
When ever we tap on our Arms or Hand we get sound, people have captured that sound to recognize which part of the hand you have tapped based on the Bone density, Mass and size, distance between the joints and also filtering from soft tissues this makes each skin area sound as unique one or the system can easily identify the “Skin Button”
If you normally tap the hand we won’t feel any difference but when seen in a slow motion each tapping produce a transverse wave. This technology is actually harnessing those bio acoustic waves for processing.
The system beams a keyboard or menu onto the user's forearm and hand from a projector mounted in an armband. The acoustic detector which is also mounted in the armband will calculate which area the user has touched the skin.
The system could use wireless technology like Bluetooth to transmit commands to many types of device including phones, iPods and even PCs , TV etc
In Picture : Chris Harrison ( Researcher, Man behind the Technology)
Currently the research claims to have achieved a 95.5% accuracy in tapping, the pictures shows the different tapping areas of the hand
The Tap area gives us minimum 10 skin button which is enough to control any Phones or Personal Media player (PMP) like iPods, MP3 players,
The above picture shows the User can regular User interface with back button or like this they have developed scrolling option in hand, if you tap on top of the hand it will scroll up, if you tap near hand elbow joint it will scroll down. To go back to previous screen you need to pinch or touch your thumb finger with any other finger.
The Touch screen technology is surely different one.
So far this is a Research Project has some cool applications. The below picture shows user controlling Tetris game in the computer by tapping his finger
This below picture is showing a tetris game projected on your hand using pico projector

so the Future is your hand saying is becoming true :)
