2010 - The Year of Many Firsts!

Year 2010 will be an year of many Firsts to me! Here are almost all thatz crossing my mind now...

I guess no one will be having so many 'Firsts' to their credit! :O)

AVATAR: Technology Explored to Limits!

Yesterday had been to the sci-fi movie thriller "AVATAR" by James Cameron. Initially over the past 1-1.5 months when the movie made news, I thought its just yet another hype movie and had neglected to watch this movie.

The kind of creativity which has gone in, the kind of technology used, the amount and varieties of colors used is so beautiful that you will just be telling 'wow' thru out the movie! :-)
This movie is technologically the best, atleast for next 2-3 years...the amount of creativity gone in to bring out this movie is amazing...i recommend every one to go and watch  and enjoy this superb, fantastic and mindblowing movie!!

The Volvo's shock absorption is so good that any humps/potholes (never to go away in Bangalore!) does not affect you and you can easily and happily keep working/typing in the laptop.
