Ask Google to give you Google Glass

Hi All,

 

The dream of ubiquitous computing is becoming a realization with the launch of smart glasses by Google called Google Glass. These are wearable glasses able to recognize your voice commands to perform various operations and it is connected to internet. The glass has a tiny screen attached to a rim above the right eye which is used to display information continuously and is controlled by voice commands. The device runs on Android operating system so it means all the features of Android operating system are available on the device. Since Android supports programmable applications so I think it should support custom applications written by programmers in the future.

 

Currently the glasses are controlled by voice command and support the following amazing features.

1.    It displays current time when you say "OK glass".

2.    It takes a picture when you say "take a picture".

3.    It is able to record a video through voice command and you are able to record video with your hands free.

4.    You can also share what you see live. Might be Google is offering some video streaming service for this. Details will be revealed later on.

5.    It can display driving instructions right in front of you.

6.    You can speak to send messages

7.    You can ask whatever is in your mind to the glasses and it will record it in the form of notes.

8.    You can also translate your voice different languages.

9.    It can locate the well known location you are in and can display automatically useful information related to that location. For example, if you are at airport then it can detect your location and can display flight schedule of that airport. This is very cool feature. So it answers without having to speak.

10.   It has very evolutionary design and comes in different colors such as Charcoal, Tangerine, Shale, Cotton and Sky.

 

Google says that it will hold a public contest to distribute a limited of internet connected eyeglasses at the price of $1500. In the contest, the participants will have to write a 50 word application describing how they will use Google glass in a innovative and useful way plus five pictures and a 15-second video. The application should be submitted via Google+ or Twitter.

The final production version of google glass will be available in the market at price below $1500.

Love ur parents

 

 

 

One day an 11 year old girl asked her daddy,

"What are you going to get me for my 15th birthday?"
The father replied, "There is much time left."


When the girl was 14 she fainted and was rushed to the hospital.
The doctor came out and told her dad she had a bad heart& she is probably going to die
When she was lying in the hospital bed she said
"Daddy,. have they told you I am going to die ?"
The father replied no you will live as he left weeping.
She said "How can you be sure."


He turned around from the door and said "I know.".
She turns 15 when she is recovering and comes home to find a letter on her bed. It says ;
"My Dearest Daughter, if you are reading this it means all went well as I told you. One day you asked me what I was giving you for your 15th birthday, I didn't know then but now my present to you is MY HEART." Her father donated his heart

 

 

Moral:


Love your parents… they sacrifice a lot to make us happy, without letting children realize….Many a times we are so busy growing up that we forget that they are also growing old….Spend Quality time with them, treat your parents with loving care, for you will know their value, when you see their empty chair….

Hilarious.... Appraisal Process.... :-)

Dis is Fab….!!@@!!

 

 

The Art of Appraisal

Big Boss
: This year your performance was good, excellent and outstanding. So, your rating is "average".

Employee
: What? How come 'average'?

Big Boss
: Because...err...uhh...you lack domain knowledge.

Employee
: But last year you said I am a domain expert and you put me in this project as a domain consultant.

Big Boss
: Oh is it? Well, in that case, I think your domain knowledge has eroded this year.

Employee
: What???

Big Boss
: Yes, I didn't see you sharing knowledge on Purchasing domain.

Employee
: Why would I? Because I am not in Purchasing, I am in Manufacturing.

Big Boss
: This is what I don't like about you. You give excuse for everything.

Employee
: Huh? *Confused*

Big Boss
: Next, you need to improve your communication skills.

Employee
: Like what? I am the one who trained the team on "Business Communication", you sat in the audience and took notes, you remember?

Big Boss
: Oh is it? Errr...well..I mean, you need to improve your Social Pragmatic Affirmative Communication.

Employee
: Huh? What the hell is that? *Confused*

Big Boss
: See! That's why you need to learn about it.

Employee
: *head spinning*

Big Boss
: Next, you need to sharpen your recruiting skills. All the guys you recruited left within 2 months.

Employee
: Well, not my mistake. You told them you will sit beside them and review their code, and most resigned the next day itself. Couple of them even attempted suicide.

Big Boss
:*stunned* (recovers from shock) Err...anyway, I tried to give you a better rating, but our Normalization process gave you only 'average'.

Employee
: Last year that process gave me 'excellent'. This year just 'average'? Why is this process pushing me up and down every year?

Big Boss
: That's a complicated process. You don't want to hear.

Employee
: I'll try to understand. Go ahead.

Big Boss
: Well, we gather in a large room, write down the names of sub-ordinates in bits of paper, and throw them up in the air. Whichever lands on the floor gets 'average', whichever lands on table gets 'good', whichever we manage to catch gets 'excellent' and whichever gets stuck to ceiling gets 'outstanding'.

Employee
: (eyes popping out) What? Ridiculous! So who gets 'poor' rating?

Big Boss
: Those are the ones we forget to write down.

Employee
: What the hell! And how can paper bits stick to ceiling for 'outstanding'?

Big Boss
: Oh no, now you have started questioning our 20 year old organizational process!

Employee
: *faints*

No City in India is safe - A true note from a Infosys Employee..!

Hi All,

I am writing this because i feel u should all know about it. It is about the level of safety around here in Pune or anywhere in India. Is there anyone you can trust ??

 

On Friday 22nd February at around 8.30 in the evening I was on my way to Mumbai waiting for one of those carpools. One which stops at wakad bridge and drops you Mumbai for 150 bucks. So this blue color indica stopped and the driver was asking people for Mumbai. Since there is no street light in that area  I couldn't see the car no. The driver kept asking for Mumbai. When one person decided to back out, I decided to get in the car. I got in the car and was sitting in the middle with 2 guys on each side of me. There were two other in the car i.e one the driver and the other sitting beside him.  The car started and all of them were quietly sitting as if they don't know each other. I don't know why all of the sudden i felt something was fishy. I told the driver to stop as I remembered some urgent work. But as soon as the next stop came the driver didn't stop and the person on my right covered my mouth and my hand while the other person on my left held my neck and other hand using great force. I got scared and started shouting but they told me to shut or else they would kill me.They told me to bend and sit pressing my neck and then put a cloth on my head so that i don't see anything i.e neither their face nor the direction in which they are taking me. I just shut myself out of fear. They started stealing everything and asking me all kinds of question. They took my money, my specs without which I couldn't see anything , my laptop, my cloths, my mp4 player and almost everything. Things worth around 70k. They even asked me my atm pin and I even spoke the truth fearing what if they actually check and find out its wrong and kill me. The lowest of my life was when these people were discussing whether to kill me throw my body away or just leave me. I was literally begging for my life. Then they finally took me to some place and tied my hands, took me out of the car in some deserted area with bushes all around me. They then tore my t-shirt tied my mouth with it as tightly as possible. This is when again I felt I would get killed. But then they pushed me to the ground and tied my legs and ran away. I had no idea where I was and I couldn't move my legs or hands. It was scary. I somehow managed to untie my hands and then my legs and then my mouth. I couldn't see anything but ran in the direction of the light. Suddenly I saw a building and luckily a window with light. Ran towards it and got all the help. It was an army area in Dehu road off old Pune-Mumbai highway.

 

But my point here is please don't ever travel in these car pools from wakad. Especially when you are alone. These people work in group and act as if they don't know each other and later threaten to kill and steal everything. Please ensure you either travel in bus or with someone whom you can trust or with fellow Infoscians. Girls please travel with someone you know and can trust. Times are so bad nothing here in India is safe. Just make sure you don't travel in these car pools because you never know what might happen to you. You can never trust these people. IT COULD HAVE BEEN WORSE FOR ME BUT I AM JUST LUCKY TO BE ALIVE. It still gives me chills just to think about it. 

 

So a request to all please don't ever take carpools which drop you to Mumbai from wakad bridge. These people can never be trusted and please don't leave office late as well. Complete your work as fast as possible and leave as early as possible. Ladies please leave early by buses or with someone you trust. Carrying a pepper spray with yourself all the time would be great.Today it was me but tomorrow it can be anyone. And these people can come up with any ideas anytime to steal from us. So please stay cautious and alert all the time.

Please forward this mail to all friends and relatives so as to ensure their safety. Please forward this to your friends across all DCs so as to alert them and ensure their safety.

Quotes from others about Kamal Haasan(ENJOY:))

  • K. Balachander
    • Yes, I own Kamal. Yet, he does not belong to me—he belongs to the world of cinema. I have never ceased to be amazed by the limits and standards he sets (for) himself — standards that nobody else imagines even exists!
  • Mani Ratnam
    • There are some things he can do that others can but there are many things Kamal can do that no other actor can.
  • Shahrukh Khan
    • I walk down the road and people want to kiss me. I'd never do all that to anyone. Not Mr. Bachchan or Mr. Rajnikant. The exception is Kamal. I asked him if I could touch him when I first met him. He has an amazing sense of using space. When he plays an old man his gait and the way he stands is enough to convey his age. He doesn't need make-up. I find him greater than Dustin Hoffman and De Niro put together, I know Kamal can make you cry with a look in his eyes. I know his pauses. He has an amazing sense of timing that he knows the audience likes. He's a technician par excellence. That kind of knowledge and control every actor should strive to get.
    • God has become a generic term like mind blowing. It is embarrassing. I would have said that to Amitabh Bachchan, Naseeruddin Shah, Nana Patekar. I used to tell them I want to stand in the same space as you. I've told Kamal Haasan, I just want to touch you. They are the gods of acting.
  • Aamir Khan
    • It's Kamal who inspired me to do one film at a time.
  • Gautam Menon
    • If I have to wait for an actor to do my film it has to be Kamal sir or my good friend Surya. I want to work with people who have their head firm on their shoulder.
