Noticed two folks flaunting their unlocked iPhones at office today. Looked pretty cool. But not sure whether I want to own one!

I felt strongly about the sentence handed out to Sanjay Dutt, and wanted to make a post about it. But Acorn has made a nice post on it with exactly the same points I wanted to convey, but in a much better manner than what i could have done! :)

Google Local for India

In case you haven't checked this out yet, try Google Local for India. For example, this search for restaurants near Banjara Hills, Hyderabad or restaurants near Lavelle Road in Bangalore gives me a list of results for restaurants along with their contact info.

Watched Sivaji. Rajini is brilliant at times, but mostly just an average movie. Interestingly it looks like there has been a great response here in Hyderabad for the Tamil version of the movie (Mostly all the Tamil movies are dubbed into telugu before it reaches Hyderabad). Prasads, where the tamil movie is showing just increased the number of daily shows for the tamil version of the movie from 1 to 2.

Tata Indicom Data Card on Ubuntu

Got my Tata Indicom data (which is basically a Huawei E321) card to work my laptop running Ubuntu Edgy. It was fairly straightforward process, with ubuntu automatically doing most of the work. :)

1. After inserting the card, the modem got detected at /dev/ttyUSB0.
2. Ran

sudo wvdialconf
and it setup the default configuration
3. The I edited the /etc/wvdial.conf file to setup the Phone number, Username and password.
Phone = #777
Password = internet
Username = internet
4. Now run sudo wvdial R and that's it. After a series of debug messages, you should be connected to the internet.

Now I still need to figure how to get the signal strength of the network Iam in.
