This blog echoes much of my views on Apple, especially Mac OS X. I was so happy on my 2GB RAM Thinkpad T61 effortlessly running Linux, that my Macbook Pro which has top of the line specs with 8x more RAM feels like I have gone back to 1990's ! Missing Linux on Thinkpad :(
Apple has lost the functional high ground. January 4, 2015 • ∞http://www.marco.org/2015/01/04/apple-lost-functional-high-ground. Update: I regret having published this. Apple's hardware today is amazing — it has never been better. But the software quality has fallen so much in the last few ...

Introducing international voice calls from Hangouts in India

Starting today, the Hangouts app on your phone will help you stay connected with your family and friends around the world in more ways than ever. Now you can make voice calls to phone numbers outside of India on Android (http://goo.gl/75u3GM), iOS (http://goo.gl/Py8Ayb) and the web from Hangouts in Gmail.

It’s always free to call other Hangouts users, it’s free to call numbers in the U.S. and Canada, and the international rates (https://www.google.com/hangouts/rates) are really low. Add credit to your account and the first minute of any call you make to any of the 24 countries listed (see full list here: http://goo.gl/ZYu4XW) will also become free.

On Android, just install Hangouts Dialer (http://goo.gl/75u3GM) to turn on voice calls. On iOS (http://goo.gl/Py8Ayb) and the web, voice calls will be available the next time you open the app.

Federer wins Basel title, eyes world top spot
 Roger Federer has his sights set on ending the year as the world's top-ranked player after the 33-year-old claimed his fifth title of the year in his home town on Sunday.

The 17-times grand slam champion outclassed David Goffin 6-2 6-2 to win the Swiss Indoor tournament in Basel for a sixth time, moving ever closer to Serbian Novak Djokovic at the top of the rankings in the process.

So, this is how Cyanogen dumped Oneplus in India. (Read Email excerpts below) Don't know why Cyanogen thinks that they invented Android. I really wish Carl hires some engineers from Cyanogen to work on a custom Cyanogenmod for Oneplus, after all CM is Open Source and will be an Open Source as long as Android is Open. Honestly speaking, there are tons of ROMS and Kernels on XDA and CM is "JUST" one of them.
Carl (CEO, Oneplus) - I’m guessing there’s some misunderstanding. Shall we talk about it during your visit in December?
Kirt (CEO, Cyanogen) - Carl. We will be terminating our relationship with one plus. I will get back to you with more details shortly. No misunderstanding. We have no reason to meet in sz [Shenzhen]. We are terminating.

Anonymous
plus.google.com

Anonymous (used as a mass noun) is a loosely associated hacktivist group. It originated in 2003 on the imageboard 4chan, representing the concept of many online and offline community users simultaneously existing as an anarchic, digitized global brain. It is also generally considered to be a blanket term for members of certain Internet subcultures, a way to refer to the actions of people in an environment where their actual identities are not known. It strongly opposes Internet censorship and surveillance, and has hacked various government websites. It has also targeted major security corporations. Its members can be distinguished in public by the wearing of Guy Fawkes masks. In its early form, the concept has been adopted by a decentralized online community acting anonymously in a coordinated manner, usually toward a loosely self-agreed goal, and primarily focused on entertainment. Beginning with 2008, the Anonymous collective has become increasingly associated with collaborative, international hacktivism. They undertook protests and other actions in retaliation against anti-digital piracy campaigns by motion picture and recording industry trade associations. Actions credited to "Anonymous" are undertaken by unidentified individuals who apply the Anonymous label to themselves as attribution. Some analysts have praised Anonymous as the freedom fighters of the internet, and a digital Robin Hood,although others have condemned them as "anarchic cyber-guerrillas". Although not necessarily tied to a single online entity, many websites are strongly associated with Anonymous. This includes notable imageboards such as 4chan, their associated wikis, Encyclopædia Dramatica, and a number of forums. After a series of controversial, widely publicized protests, distributed denial of service (DDoS) and website defacement attacks by Anonymous in 2008, incidents linked to its cadre members have increased. In consideration of its capabilities, Anonymous has been posited by CNN to be one of the three major successors to WikiLeaks. In 2012, American magazine Time named Anonymous as one of the most influential groups of people in the world.

Went here today (Sunday) for Buffet Lunch. It was around 1.30 pm and the place was empty. We were reluctant for Buffet, but then did not think much and started with it. There was a soup which was okay. Appam, Chicken Stew, Beef fry and Fish curry were there for starters. Beef fry was extremely oily and tasted like old stuff. The main course had just Rice, Sambhar, Aviyal and a curry. There was no non-veg in the main course and all the curries including Sambhar tasted so bad and old that we were really disappointed. South Indian lunch is incomplete without curd, and I had to order it separately. They had Palada in desserts which had more of water than milk. You can get similar meals from any other ordinary Kerala hotels for 50-100/-. The so-called-buffet here costs approximately 460 Rs. Even though the place was almost empty, the service too was bad. It took more than 20 mts to get a bowl of curd, had to ask them to clear the used plates. Will never ever go here again and will never recommend the Buffet lunch.

Have been here for a team lunch. Food is quite good but if you consider the value-for-money factor, I would personally avoid it. The quantity of the food also is very less. Its very expensive and would cost at least 1500 bucks for two.

Have been here around 6 times and loved the food, especially the starters every single time. They have a good variety of Barbeques in Non-Veg. I love the Cajun Spicy potatoes , Tangri Kebabs and chicken barbeques. There are not many choices in the main course, but by the time you go for the main course, you will be done with 75% of your lunch because of the tasty barbeques. They have limited the Desserts options these days, still a wonderful experience.

I went today and looks like I expected more because of Rocky's endorsement on HOMP. The Biriyani was pathetic for my taste. People who love Hyderabadi Biriyani are never going to enjoy this. The Chicken Leg gravy had more oil than anything else. Traveled 1.5 hr in Bangalre traffic to reach and left the hotel disappointed. Will never again go there. Ambiance - Its a Mess (not a hotel) in mess :D Service - Pathetic to say the least.

Went here last week for a team lunch and did not like it. It was 1.30 PM and they were yet to lay down the Buffet. There was not much variety for Non-Veg. An average restaurant. Will not prefer to go here again.
