SendAndReceive.pdf (268 KB)

My way of sending files is very odd.

I use following ways to send files.
- Picasa, Amazon S3 cloud, Email, Chat, Youtube, etc.

In order to send/receive files I created a simple mock-up.
Implemented it in Java using Amazon S3 cloud service, JetS3t framework.

I will build a web page whenever I get some time.
Feel free to comment about it.

At first it’s simple, then it gets complicated and simple again

When you start looking at a problem and it seems really simple, you don’t really understand the complexity of the problem.

Then you get into the problem, and you see that it’s really complicated, and you come up with all these convoluted solutions. That’s sort of the middle, and that’s where most people stop…

But the really great person will keep on going and find the key, the underlying principle of the problem – and come up with an elegant, really beautiful solution that works. That’s what we wanted to do with Mac.

Steve Jobs, 1984, taken from Peter Merholz’ book “Subject to Change”

Since it is great quote, I entirely copied and pasted the text from the following link.

Idea to develop a smart phone applcation (Useful for India like couctr)

Do to want to make difference in peoples life with technology? I do.

Say 5% of people in urban India have GPS enabled phones (iphone, nokia, android etc).
You wrote an application to report manholes.

Whenever you find your-selfs next to the to a manhole
- Open the application and press to report the location to government which is responsible for this.
- If they don't care, report it to news papers. I'm sure they are happy to spread the news.

Let me show the idea with pictures.

If you willing to see the flow of the application, please download the pdf file. You can even navigate the prototype.

If you like to implement the idea let me know, I will be happy to help you to design the application.

Best regards,

Chrome Browser pinned tab tip.

I don't know about following feature of google chrome.

If you use google chrome you might already know about how to use pinned tabs. 
Which gives extra space for other tabs. The pinned tab automatically goes to the left side on tab bar.
I use them for websites I use most. Examples are Google mail, calender, docs, facebook, twitter etc.

If you drag and drop the regular tab in between or left side of pinned tabs it automatically becomes pinned tab.
I don't know about it, found it accedentally.

Search your address in google maps. Once you found your address in maps use the following Java script to get the longitude and latitude.

You will get popup with geo-coordinates.
During day to day hobby programming stuff I used it many times.
