Thanks for all those who wrote in and asked about the scarcity of posts over the last two weeks. Extremely sorry for not replying to mails from some of you as well. Will catch up with that soon. Its been an extremely busy period with lots happening on the career front as well as on the personal side. Will continue in this mode for some more time till things get settled down. Till then, expect only a occasional post or two.

Symbian Worm!

There's a worm doing the rounds which affects Symbian Series 60 devices. Kiran reports that it has hit him thrice in a day. So if you have bluetooth enabled on your mobile, watch out!

Got my hands on IE7 today. Should say that it is pretty good. In a typical browsing session for about an hour, i didn't miss Firefox at all! One nice(and surprising) thing was that the search bar in IE7 had Google as the default! And yes, you can also choose other search engines.

+ Tabs
+ Feed discovery.
+ Phishing Filter (Haven't checked whether this works!)

- Looks bland. May be i miss my fav Firefox themes! :)
- There is an addons page for IE, but it doesn't have the kind of cool extensions that makes Firefox effective!

Top 20 innovative Companies

Businessweek has a list of Top 20 innovative companies in the world. The list was compiled after a poll of 940 senior executives in 68 countries by the BCG.

A messenger idea!

Woudn't it be nice to have a single Yahoo! messenger window with the various chats arranged in tabs? That will atleast save some task bar space!

Can Google Stay Google?

A Fast Company Story.

How can Google keep its edge for the long run? What can it do to make sure it's still a hot company in 2010? How can a maturing organization with 3,000 people hold on to what made it a great startup?
The article strives to answer the above questions. Nice read!

Another funny patent!
