First kill – Part II

you can find the part I here

Naresh rushes back to the police station and gives the news to his colleagues. He was expecting them to be surprised on hearing the news but they were all mocking at him and his news. Everyone said that the old couple was lying and the dead man is their son but Naresh was just not willing to accept their opinion. He tried hard to convince them but in vain. Finally, to shut Naresh up all of them challenged him to prove his point. Naresh knew it would not be all that easy task but he also knew that if could not prove he might become a subject of mockery, not just for his seniors but juniors too.

The next day Naresh again goes to the old couple’s house for some clue. He asks their son’s contact number but they say that it was he who calls every time and he never gave any contact number. The worried couple repeatedly asked the reason for the whole investigation but Naresh never answered to any of their queries. Finally, when he decided to search the house for some clue he gave all the answers and asked them if he could see Manoj’s room. The couple readily agreed and they confidently said that their son is in Bangalore and he calls them every week. Seeing the couple’s confidence Naresh was now even more worried and confused.

Eric Schmidt, Sergey Brin, and Larry Page repeat their base salaries of $1 for 2006, just as they took in 2005; don’t be in too much of a hurry to launch SaveGooglers.com and start a fundraiser, though.

First kill – Part I

Everyone in the police station (no not the ones who were behind the bars) was in a jubilant mood except for sub inspector Naresh Deshmukh. Everyone was happy because they have knocked down Deepak, a well-known gangster of Mumbai, whom police was looking for over five years. Naresh was not happy because he was the one who killed him and it was his first time, in fact the first day on his duty. Every one was trying to cheer him up, but in vain. He was looking at a wallet while everyone else was busy deciding the date of a grand party for all of them who were involved in this mission.

Microsoft selling PCs, prepaid style

Those Microsoftees like to distance themselves from the PC hardware biz in the States, only just skirting it with their MSN TV 2 and Xbox units, but in Brazil they’re jumping into the market with a system of prepaid PCs for low-income buyers. They’ve teamed up with local retailer Magazine Luiza, and have already done a test run of the method, which involves prepaid cards in exchange for computer use, and once the user has paid the full price of the unit ($351), they own it. Sounds suspiciously like rent-to-own, but they’ve been rather successful with it, so maybe that hipster-style “prepaid” terminology is paying off.

There’s plenty of room at the bottom

Richard Feynman was one of the five people behind the infamous ‘Little Boy’ and ‘Fat Man’ ( incase you are wondering what they are.. they were what the americans chose to name the two atom bombs dropped at Hiroshima and Nagasaki… infact they named it after Roosevelt and Churchill to signify the Allied strike against the Axis).

Here is a testimony of his sheer scientific acumen.. Just imagine a whole range a fields from VLSI, NanoTach, MEMS etc.. all having their genesis in one casual lecture to his colleagues.

This transcript of the classic talk that Richard Feynman gave on December 29th 1959 at the annual meeting of the American Physical Society at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) was first published in the February 1960 issue of Caltech’s Engineering and Science.

A new beginning

Its new year(I know I am late) and I was desperately looking for something new. Something like WordPress is what I was looking for. Its neat, simple, cool and templates are better (though less). Blogger finally has some competition.

Cheers.
