Guardian has this article on Bangalore's worsening infrastructure problems.

Yahoo search blog has a list of job postings for Yahoo! Search.

Given all the noise about a Google browser, what will Google name it if they come up with a new browser? They can't name it gBrowser, as somebody has already taken that name.
Any ideas?

I have moved to Microsoft Outlook from Thunderbird. I was happy with Thunderbird for so long, but Lookout has changed my mind to move back.

Is anyone able to view unicode websites properly with firefox? I have no issues with IE, but firefox just doesn't seem to like any of the settings i have. Single charecters come out fine, while the majority of the two letter combinations are inverted. Has anyone seen and set this right?

iTunes accused of overcharging their UK customers. A track costs 79p in the UK, whereas it costs around 67p in France and Germany. On similar lines, i wonder how much Apple will price its tracks if it opens a India-specific iTunes site.

A nice article on Why you Shouldn't Write your Own Kernel Anymore?. As an embedded systems developer, i tend to agree to most of the author's thoughts.
