We're really excited to announce our newest Xiaomi investor — Mr Ratan Tata, Chairman Emeritus of Tata Sons.

We're incredibly honored by this extraordinary vote of confidence. Mr Tata is very excited about Xiaomi and our plans for India, and we're really looking forward to working with him as an investor and advisor!

Spooky as Hell!
 
Vintage Red , anyone? ;)

Apparently, Wine isn't the only thing that gets better, as it ages...

Lenin's corpse does, too...

Appellation d'origine contrôlér?

How about website-embeddable Android apps?

So like, this Google ARC thing, (It runs Android apps on Chrome! bit.ly/1EKoGTF) since it's Chrome that's rendering the Android app in a seperate window, what if they just skipped the seperate window thing and made running APKs embeddable in a web page? When Chrome can render both web pages and APKs it makes sense to combine the two.

Then if you went to the Play Store on a desktop, instead of just looking at pictures and video, the app would just be there running and you could try it. 

When tech sites write about a cool new app, they could just embed it. 

Apps that require a login could provide a demo account or something. This APK stuff is all sandboxed so it should be safe...

Ephemeral Android apps on a web page would personally it would save me the "Install, try, uninstall" workflow that I seem to do a few times a week. It would be cool for app promotion too.

When poaching a single serving (a single egg or two eggs that you want to cook together), trade the wide pan for one that's narrower and deeper, such as a 2-quart saucier.

Sure is a Dan Brown hunt... now that I know the area a bit more (alongwith the names of the streets), I could identify much better with this 'walk'. Additional thanks for the info on the shop selling imported stuff... will have to check that out very soon!
Let me start by differentiating between the place and the event. The Black Hole of Calcutta was a place, and about it’s existence, no controversy exists. The Black Hole Tragedy was an event which, many historians say, did not...

it's a quintessential Calcutta Chinese restaurant with generous portions and tasty food served in a non pretentious setting. I'd say skip Chinatown sometimes and go to Jimmy's. You'll love it.

Out of all the fast food chains Subway is the most healthy. The sandwiches are tasty if you know your sauces well. I've seen folks having there subs doused in every sauce on display causing serious sandwich meltdowns.

Zombala serves arguably the best momos in Thimpu. Highly recommend the pork and the beef momos. This is a no-fuss eatery where you sit down, order your food, eat and leave. Highly recommended if you are in Thimpu. The pictures I have submitted will speak for the food, but for once, it tastes better than it looks.

The sandwiches are actually quite tasty and value for money (about 60 rupees). Cannot speak for the pastries since I have never tasted them.

The best unlimited buffet in Calcutta. If you want to hog, look no further. Obviously not a good place for an intimidate dinner. Frequented by large office groups on weekdays, it's best to get here early.

Aasma makes the best beef biriyani and beef chaap in Calcutta, and in all probability the known Universe. Don't go looking for 'ambience'. It is a shabby pice hotel frequented by the no- very-well-to-do. But the food! Oh the food!
