I write ideas that strike me, sometimes just to remember them later, and just once in a while, you might find something useful. :-)

Friday for Android

Friday for Android

“Forget to Remember” That is what Friday claims it will do. About the developers Friday is an Android app from Dexetra, the developers of Iris, a virtual assistant. Even though it does not have all the features as Siri, yet, it shows a lot of promise with constant updates and improvements. Iris (Siri in reverse) was created within 8 hours after Apple announced Siri and that was how many people heard about its developer Dextra and the sibling of Iris who has been gestating for a while now. About Friday Many people find it difficult to maintain a diary (me), but I wish I knew what I did a week or a month back. Sometimes I would know what I did, but would have no idea when I did it. Android has some apps which will export your call logs and SMSs to your Gmail inbox or to Google Calendar. …

Reviewing 2011

Rails

Just like that, 2011 is over. What happened the past year? It went so fast I can’t believe a whole year went without making much of a mark in my life. This is what I got when I took stock of my life last year.Blogging Sometime in the beginning of the year, I vowed that I would post every day. That was a promise I could not keep, and to some extend didn’t want to keep. Out of the 37 posts that I did last year, only a handful of them were what I would consider as real post. Most of the time, I was writing something just because I had committed to do so. Some of these are worth maybe a tweet or maybe a wallpost, but not a blog post. And so I stopped the postaday campaign and reverted back to posting when I had something to post and …

God and Me

Thinking

Most people feel that I don’t believe in God and I wouldn’t blame them. Truth is, I have never given anyone a reason to think otherwise. I don’t consider myself as an atheist, and I have often said I am agnostic. But that isn’t entirely true either. I don’t believe God in the conventional sense. Let me break it down further. Creator of the universe Most religions consider their God to be the creator of all, whether it is visible or invisible, living or lifeless, observed or perceived phenomenon. But there seems to be a contradiction with such an assumption. Is God a singular entity that does not confirm to the universe? If we were to assume that to be true, then what is the source that created God or made God, God. If such a singular entity was created why can’t it happen again? If there is such a source, then …

Feed Roundup

Here are some interesting news that I read online recently. Hope you like this tiny digest. Siri For iPhone That is one of the hottest news in tech world. A virtual assistant that can not only talk back to you, but do it with a certain amount of (Artificial) Intelligence. That is the dream of every Geek. Siri (pronounced /ˈsɪri/) is a personal assistant application for iOS. The application uses natural language processing to answer questions, make recommendations, and perform actions by delegating requests to an expanding set of web services. Siri claims that the software adapts to the user’s individual preferences over time and personalizes results, as well as accomplishing tasks such as making dinner reservations and reserving a cab.[1] via Siri (software) – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Unfortunately, I don’t have Apple, and I prefer my Android phone and after some digging I came up with a few interesting applications …
