Looking at the way things have gone in Formula One, I think we could be in for a pretty boring season.

Mercedes should be in a class of one, far above the rest

Ferrari look to be the best of the rest, but RedBull should be there as will Williams. I don't see anyone else in the top 8 spots

Lotus, Sauber and Torro Rosso should be the teams fighting for positions 9-10

Force India will be lucky to see the end of the season

Mclaren Honda is the real unknown, they could be the slowest in the first few races, but will likely go up to be on par with the top 3 teams behind Mercedes

I couldn't agree more. That is why I carry a point and shoot to most occasions where I know I will be taking photos. The cell phone camera is only for the truly random shots
I wish I had bought a better camera sooner. The past decade — my first date with my wife to our marriage, the Kansas City Royals’ worst seasons to their World Series run, college, jobs, and...

Gave in and updated my phone to lollipop yesterday through the official image. Tried saving app data through Helium but it didn't work as usual. Probably a good thing as it gives me a clean slate and gets rid of apps that I hardly use.

First impressions

Very clean and fresh look
Very smooth, scrolling is a good as iOS
Can't stand using apps that haven't been updated to material design now. Few of my long term widgets like Beautiful Weather just don't fit the os look
Email now in Gmail app, so will have my official and both personal emails in one app finally
Bit unhappy with the lock screen, now have one extra step to bring up the pin on pressing the power button
Camera seems a little slower
No idea about battery impact, let's see if the claims of 30% additional battery hold up

That is true, espcially if you set the lockscreen notifications to None, you have an extra useless step. I wonder if having a trusted device or NFC to use the Smart Unlock will mitigate that

Though I had been off posting on G+ ( and fb/twitter too) for a few months, am always amazed at how much people use this network.

Much more interesting stuff here than Facebook

Yes, I think there is no more one network. Difficult to leave facebook as people seem to be posting lot of personal stuff only there but pretty much it is a waste of time. Here I do get some pretty meaningful links and discussions

I'm moving to a new backup solution for personal documents and pictures. My current solution involved 4 copies, 2 on my personal laptops each synced to the NAS. The fourth was on an external hard drive.

But the scheme has one fatal flaw, there is just one location, my house. If someone broke in or I received a massive power surge, I would be out of luck.so, I switched to the cloud using OneDrive.

Why OneDrive and not the other solutions like Dropbox or Google drive? The reason is windows 8.1. One drive is very neatly integrated into windows since 8.1. I log in with my Microsoft account and it just shows up available for all programs through the same interface. The other cloud solutions also have similar means of integration, but I think it is at a higher level than OneDrive. The other killer feature is office online. If I have a word or excel file in OneDrive, I can go to the web interface and it will open it up on office online with the same formatting. I also like the way photos are presented in a manner similar to the live tiles.

Another factor that helps is that I have 25 GB for free versus 5GB for Dropbox and 15GB for google drive. I may subscribe to get an additional 50GB which costs around 1500 ₹ per year.

I am beginning the process of moving all my files over. It will take a while especially with the pictures. I usually arrange my pictures by year but I do not want to use cloud for videos. So, I have to manually remove the videos from each folder before moving it over.

I still need a solution for videos. I may look at uploading them to youtube in private mode, but haven't really explored that.

Looking at the Galaxy S5, Sony Z2, HTC One M8, a thought struck me, for the first time in many years, I have absolutely no desire to even consider any of them. The reason is that in years past, these flagships were so much of an improvement over the phone I currently had. But with the Nexus 5, I am so satisfied and these improvements are incremental over the N5. I think 2014 may be the first year that I don't even consider changing my phone!!

I think they are trying to appeal to the general user who is not that anal about every review being 100% factual

The wait begins. I wish Google does it like Apple, push it to everyone all at once. They are after all the biggest internet company and can easily handle the capacity that is required.

While I can download the full image and install, it means reinstalling all my apps and copying all media over. No thanks.

3 years ago, I was very frustrated with my 4 year old laptop, it was slow and took forever to start up. I'd heard about SSD but they were frightfully expensive and just not available in India. After a lot of deliberation, I decided to order one from the US. It was an Intel 320 and using it was a life changing experience. Everything got 10-20 times faster, boot times were 10-12 seconds, app launch rarely more than 2-3 seconds. Parties rarely last forever. My laptop started to die last year and after repair, I decided to sell it, but I retained the SSD. 

My new laptop was a beast, the Dell Inspiron 15R Special Edition. It has everything, a gorgeous 15.6 in Full HD display, a full power quad core processor and 8 GB of RAM. The only downside is the weight and the slow hard drive, which does not have any flash memory as a cache. Despite this limitation, I decided to live with it and not swap out the hard drive with the SSD for one reason.  Over the 2 years, my collection of files (mainly photos and videos) had become too big to fit on the 120 GB space, so I decided to wait until SSDs got cheaper and I could get a 256 or 512 GB drive at an affordable cost.

Well that day has arrived with the launch of the Crucial MX100. For comparision sake, the 120 GB Intel drive cost me 236$ in 2011. Yesterday, I picked up the 256 GB Crucial for half that price. The 512 GB is available for almost the same amount. I thought of getting the 512, but given that my photo backup has shifted to OneDrive, I think I can live with 256 for a couple of years at least.

The hard drive has been shipped to my cousin who comes to India later this month. I just can't wait to test it on my beast of a laptop and unleash it for the very first time!!

I stayed at this hotel for 10 days and really liked the experience. It is extremely well located, close to Burbank airport and the downtown area. Right next to a huge mall for any shopping needs. The room is very nice with an extremely comfortable bed and free Internet access. They have free coffee and Starbucks on a party basis. I gave it 4 stars only because breakfast is not included in the price and the Internet was sometimes slow, but otherwise a full 5 star experience

I've lived in Nagarjuna Green Ridge Apartment from the time of construction. It is one of the best apartments to live in the HSR Layout area for a number of reasons - HSR Layout is ideally located, just off the Ring Road and quite near to Electronics City and ORR/Whitefield, the twin hubs of the IT industry in Bangalore - HSR Layout has wide roads, mostof them are 60-80 ft wide. So, you do not face much traffic - One side of HSR Layout is Army land, so there is very little through traffic passing through the layout. Most of it bypasses and goes on the ring road - Though the apartment is2 km from the ring road, it is via a 100 ft road, so the driving time is never more than 3-4 minutes - The apartment is on a 80 ft road which ends at a dead end. As a result, the volume of traffic on this road is very low for the width of the road - It is one of the few apartments to get Cauvery water - As it is a fairly old apartment, designed and built before the real estate industry took off in Bangalore, the promoters have given a lot of open space - Most apartments are well ventilated, especially on the top floors. You typically have 2-3 sides open and get adequate breeze and light - It has a very vibrant community with lot of events and functions happening throughout the year - It has a very proactive owners association that has undertaken a lot of good projects like rainwater harvesting and Zero Waste Management before they became mandatory

I stayed at this hotel for a couple of weeks on a business trip in Mar 2013 Things I liked - Rooms were very clean and spacious - They had hot coffee on tap most of the time - It is very conveniently located, as I was visiting the US, I did not drive, but there were enough hotels and shopping areas within a 10-15 minute walk - Post my stay, I lost the hotel bill, the staff of the reception was very helpful in getting me a duplicate bill from halfway across the world Things I didn't - Breakfast was good, but it was the same menu every single day. Got tiring after a few days
