Google Earth Updated

Google Earth has updated its database of satellite photos of Pune. The clarity of the photos is now
as good as those of Mumbai. Cars and buses on major streets are fairly
visible, as are many known landmarks.

My blog has a few screen-shots. Nachowski

Last nights Indian Idol Show

Last night I watched the Indian Idol show in TV first time. At the end, one
thing really bothered me, it was the way participants were informed about
weather they are going to the next round or not. In this method, to inform
the boy or girl that they are not going to the next round, the judges would
go around the participants and put their hands on the participant�s
shoulder.

I guess it was added to add more drama to the show but to me this was a
shameful idea. Even though the judges have all the powers to show the doors
to any participant, the participants must not be treated like sheep and
goat. These young boys and girls are already under so much pressure and now
they have to go through this act which is not only torturous but humiliating
too.

Just thought of sharing this with you all.

Take Care,

An Iran military transport plane crash killed 128 people, 94 where onboard the plane and 34 where residents of the 10 storied building it crashed into.

I started thinking about the low flying Sukhoi’s from the Lohegaon Airport. These pilots do their practice flying over Vimannagar. I dare not think about the scale of the disaster if it strikes some day.

Have we built housing complexes too close to the Air Force base?
OR
Should the Air Force do their practice flying over open ground away from civilian dwellings?

Google's googly !!!

"No wonder so many people say google's search engine can find anything

1- Go to Google (http://www.google.com )

2- Type in the word "Failure"

3- Instead of clicking "Google Search," click "I'm Feeling Lucky."

4- see search results.

5- Spread the word before the people at Google "fix" it.
