My trip to Mangalore

If you’ve been following me on Twitter (@9_6), you may have known that I had taken a trip to Mangalore for a couple of days. This blog post is a summary of the trip. It is kind of lenghty, so I’m cutting it off from here for feed readers (aka “I’m only interested in the iPhone news yaar” subscribers. Absolutely no offense to you folks. I cherish you all. Really!).

Sony MDR-XD200 Headphones Review

Most of you know the scenario – you love playing music out loud, but your parents or room mates want you to keep the sound ridiculously low. Being stuck in this situation for months, a good pair of headphones was pretty much a top-priority in my To-Buy list. You may also know that deciding on which headphone to buy is really difficult, especially since no store lets you try them out. You gotta go on user-reviews. The SONY MDR-XD200 won hands down after I went through a bunch of headphones. This baby has bang for every frikkin buck you pay.

Feedly – The Best Web-Based Feed Reader for Firefox?

After having made my shift from RSSOwl to Google Reader, I was going through my feeds when an article on Webware caught my attention. It was about Feedly – the newest addition to the already existing hundreds of web-based RSS feed readers. So what’s unique about Feedly? For starters, it works only with Firefox and is installed as an addon. Feedly screenshot - The best web based feed reader Feedly integrates social-networking with your RSS feeds. For example, if you liked an article from your feed, you could easily share it with your friends over at Twitter. You could even add your Facebook account into it. Easily tweet an article from Feedly Feedly conveniently imported all my subscriptions (and even my name!) from Google Reader. All I had to do was give it the thumbs up, and it did the rest. The one thing Feedly lacks, which I got used to with Google Reader, was the feature of automatically marking a feed as read when you scrolled past it. Then again, Google Reader never functioned well with my scroll wheel. So I’m not complaining. There is another setback though, advertisements. I can’t stand them, and Feedly has containers ready to serve ads when the owner of the feed decides he wants to. I’m not too sure how to block them, but for now there are none since the service is quite new.

Nokia 3110 Classic Review

Finally, I was looking forward to buying this phone for at least one person! Sister lost her cell phone while she was in Chennai, and voila, a perfect chance to persuade somebody to buy this baby. The budget was small, but just enough to get this superb phone. And I have got to say, this has got to be the best decision I made [for somebody] on a mobile phone so far. Nokia 3110 Classic
