    Featured in Mumbai Mirror’s Bloggers’ Park

    Imagine my shock, surprise and excitement to find out that my review of Slumdog Millionaire was featured in Mumbai Mirror’s Bloggers’ Park. Here’s a softcopy of the article as it appeared in the newspaper. Mumbai Mirror is a newspaper focused for Mumbai that comes along with The Times of India. Though, I must say that I didn’t see much traffic coming out here because of the article, I am pleased that my review was considered newspaper worthy 🙂 Thank you Mumbai Mirror! And, thanks to @rahuljrark of Cool Tricks N Tips for pointing this out to me.

    HC takes charge of Pereira case

    After Alister Pereira was left of with a sentence of just six months after having killed seven labourers, the Mumbai High Court has taken charge of the case and has asked the police to submit all the evidence in the case. Without doubt, the police have been really sloppy in the investigation and a lot of people were enraged with this. What was really pissing off was his lawyers stating that the sentence of six months was harsh!

    Come Halloween and Netvibes is ready with a brand new Halloween Theme. This one is very different from the other themes that Netvibes has because this is the first dark theme they have. Though there is a dark background one wise thing is that the modules still have a white background with black text making it easy to read. You can apply this theme or set it in the Settings panel.

    Presenting the All New Yahoo! Bookmarks

    Yahoo! may own Del.icio.us however, that hasn’t stopped it from launching a fantastic update to Yahoo! Bookmarks. If you compare that with the old version (which I didn’t know existed), you will understand how major the upgrade actually is! They also have a comprehensive Flash Tutorial that will teach you how to use the new bookmarks interface. I would think that with the upgraded Bookmark service, Yahoo! would go all out to promote it, however C|Net reports that users of Yahoo! My Web will soon be directed to Del.icio.us If you intend to use Yahoo! Bookmarks do get the updated version of Yahoo! Toolbar which has integrated support for the…

    WordPress.com Launches Domain Registration and Mapping

    WordPress.com today released Domain Registration and Mapping for your WordPress.com blog. This is a paid addon. Only mapping with your existing domain is $10/year. If you don’t have a domain name you can register and map it for $15. There was a time I would have taken this service.

But, it could work out to be a very useful service for those who want the convenience of hosting their own blog, letting someone else do…

    Orkut in trouble in Aurangabad

    Gautam pointed out this article in the Economic Times today about Google’s Social Networking Site, a.k.a. Orkut In a nutshell, this is because of the “We Hate India” community which has been present on Orkut for a long time now. I’m stunned that Orkut has not done anything about it in so many months of hundreds, maybe thousands of users reporting it. AURANGABAD: The Aurangabad bench of Bombay High Court has directed the Maharashtra government to issue notice to Google for the alleged spread of hatred about India by its social network service `Orkut’. The order was issued by Justice A P Deshpande and Justice R M Borde Monday in…
