Google knows me better than my Wife

Sunday evening, my usual tea, cool bangalore breeze and my Google Now page. As always, i kept check what Google has to say and wants me to read.

Everything was cool until i accidentally said to my wife "well google knows everything about me, it knows me better than you".

I heard some angry murmuring from the kitchen, is she jealous of Google, i mused?

Things are not far away when you would depend everything from companies like Google and Apple who would mine petabytes of data and will tell you what to do.

May be this may happen ......

  • Look for what Google has recommended stories to read
  • Keep scrolling below till Google has finished telling me what it has to tell
  • Go to gmail and look at emails which Google has classified as Update, Primary and sometimes Promotions
  • Go to Mashable and Techcrunch to see how technology has changed the world today
  • facebook or fb watsup groups

  • Wear the VR devices and it does the rest
  • All wearables in your body from your shirt to your watch to your shoes
  • Lights talk, refrigerators talk

  • Google Robot will do everything for you
  • Machines will instruct and restrict you
  • You are machines and machines are humans

Why Apple Pay will succeed where ISIS(Softcard) failed

I have been using Softcard for a while(may be one of the few people who use it in Phoenix). I use it only because Serve gives me $1 cash back for every transaction.

Below are my pain points when using with Softcard aka ISIS
  • I have to unlock my phone using pin
  • I have to find the app which crashes every time 
  • I have to open the app
Below are the other reasons for no adoption of Softcard:
  • Need to get the right phone. Doesn't work with Nexus
  • Need to get the right sim, phone companies never give you that unless you ask
  • App is not user friendly band integrated to OS
Apple Pay solves all this:
  • Unlocks the phone, opens Apple pay when near terminal
  • Authorizes the transaction using the perfect fingerprint reader TouchID
  • No special Sim needed
  • Seamless, beautiful 
Apple Pay is going to succeed where Softcard/ISIS and confusing Google Wallet failed. 

Simplicity is the key for a successful product and Apple always does that right. 

As they say "We say hundred No's for a single Yes"

WWDC 2013 experience

WWDC was a dream come true.

In my school days, when i was looking for my first computer, the day when i thought Computer means Windows, i had seen my first ad of iMac.  And now i got a chance to go to WWDC, the biggest developer conference in the world, most loved company in the world, here i am, starting to WWDC.

I started to SFO from Phoenix on June 9th 2013 early morning. I was not sure what to expect, what i should prepare. I reached Moscone west in the afternoon to collect the Jacket and badge. There were huge banners of Apple all around and there was a huge board with "7" which meant iOS7. I went to the attendee line and was greeted by Apple staff, gave my badge and Jacket. The Jacket said 13 for 2013.

I started roaming around with the wwdc jacket in SFO downtown. There were people roaming with 12, 11, 10 , 09 jackets , showing off that they were here much before the 2013 guys.

More details coming soon.

UN55F6400 - Samsung 2013 series review

UN55F6400 - After months of research, i decided to go with this model after comparing all the top 2012 ES models and the costly 2013 F series.


  • Smart Hub 2.0 - It is not wise to invest even on UN55ES8000 as it has outdated SmartHub
  • Dual core processor - Pred didn't have this
  • Affordable compared to other F Series
  • Active 3D
  • Microdimming
  • 480 CMR
  • Smart remote
  • Much better than the UN55F6300 or UN55F6350 costco model
Bought it from as they had a 16x site wide points, saving another $271.00 from the total $1697.00.
