Yet another attempt to use Facebook ‘s name for selfish things !!

A stationery store named itself “Facebook stationers” which has acquired great popularity to the store ! Perhaps,the owner was pinning the innocent school-goers  who incidentally make a large part of Facebook .

Earlier, a university in Paraguay had used the picture of Mark Zuckerberg for publicity..But this time its in India.

My first reaction to the announcement Facebook made was “What The ****“. which pretty much summarizes what I think of the latest move by the social networking giant. Facebook has silently made available, user’s address and mobile phone number to third-party apps. The only thing that is required is your explicit permission when the standard dialog box opens.

current address mobile phone Facebooks New Data Sharing Is A Slap On The Face Of Privacy[Update: Facebook Steps Back]

What worries me is the fact that people do not read what’s written in the dialog box. I have friends who use Facebook and they do not seem to to care what access they are providing to the third-party applications. If this is the case with adults, then you can never expect your kids to know the details. Facebook is known to be used by stalkers and fraudsters and the new rules seem to abet the crimes they commit and providing address details is the worst of the two.

So next time,think twice before you click that “Allow” button in tag your friends.

Don’t allow networking to Become NET-working….hope you get it!

Call them the new million-dollar babies. Barely out of their teens and IIT campuses, they’re the new richie richs of India — graduate at 21, millionaire by 22. IITians are giving their IIM brethren a run for their money as global financial majors put an extra trust premium on the quantitative analytical skills of BTechs graduating from India’s premier technological institutes.

Campus placement drives at various IITs have just begun, but already, a US-based specialty fixed income manager Pimco has recruited three IIT Delhi final-year BTech students with a package of $100,000 for positions in California. That’s in the league of the Ivy League, and the best in IIT easily compares with the best in IIMs, India’s best and premier B-schools.

At IITs Bombay and Kanpur, the highest offers came for $90,000 per annum, both from Lime Group, a US-based financial and technology conglomerate. Ditto IIT Madras, where New York-based financial services major Bloomberg is at the top of the heap with a $90,000 per annum offer. Says a cocky 22-year-old who has been offered a job with Deutsche Bank, London: “Only second-rate IITians now go to IIMs.”

And you thought these guys were nerds!??

Universal remotes are a dime a dozen and usually are overpriced.  They are also notorious for being excessively boring.

That is except for the massive ones meant to be a joke about someone’s age or being blind.  Instead of going with your usual gray remote control with too many buttons, you could go a slightly more magical route.  Instead of pushing buttons you could wave around your magic wand to make the channels change.

The Kymera Magic Wand can be flicked up or down in order to change the channel.  If you need the volume up or down you turn it in a clockwise motion.  It has a total of 13 “magical functions” in order to perform actions on your TV.  The wand is battery powered and they’re kind enough to actually include the batteries for once……..

Guys as soon as i get that damn wand ill bcum HARRY POTTER………

The benchmark for luxury cars in the country just got higher withVolkswagen group company Bugatti Automobiles on Thursday launching its super premium sports car ‘ Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport’, with price starting at Rs 16 crore, the most expensive car to hit the Indian roads.

“Bugatti has been doing well in America, Europe and the Middle East. Now we see India as an emerging market for us, hence we have decided to bring the car to India,” Bugatti Automobiles Sales Market Manager (Middle East, Europe and India) Guy Caquelin told reporters here.

The Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport, priced at Rs 16 crore onwards, will be distributed by the company’s Indian dealer Exclusive Motors. So far, the most expensive cars in India have been the Rolls Royce Phantom and the Maybach, which are priced around Rs 5 crore.

The Bugatti Veyron is almost four times more expensive than what’s being sold in the India.
Caquelin said Bugatti is aiming between 60 and 80 units of the car to be sold across the globe this year and there have been queries from 3 to 4 Indians globally.

The company claims that the Bugatti Veyron is also the fastest car on production that is allowed to drive on normal roads in the world with a top speed of 407 km/hour with an acceleration of 0-100km/hour in 2.7 seconds.

The car, which uses components made of special materials like titanium, carbon fibre and magnesium is powered by an 8 litre engine with 16 cylinders and is assembled by hand at the company’s hand headquarters Molsheim in France.
