Microsoft unveils table computer – Microsoft Surface

Microsoft has unveiled a new touch-sensitive coffee table-shaped computer called “Surface”.

Experience it……..
http://www.microsoft.com/surface/

  • Designed to do away with the need for a traditional mouse and keyboard, users can instead use their fingers to operate the computer.
  • Also designed to interact with mobile phones placed on the surface, Microsoft says it will initially sell the unit to corporate customers.
  • These will include hotels, casinos, phone stores and restaurants.
  • So-called “multi-touch” interfaces – which allow the user to “gesture” with several fingers at once to manipulate data, rather than relying on a mouse and menus – have been making waves in tech circles for some time.
  • With a 30-inch screen, Surface will initially sell for between $5,000 and $10,000 (£2,525-£5,050).
  • However, Microsoft said it aimed to produce cheaper versions for homes within three to five years.
  • We see this as a multibillion dollar category, and we envision a time when surface computing technologies will be pervasive, from tabletops and counters to the hallway mirror, said Microsoft chief executive Steve Ballmer.

Microsoft has had a mixed record recently with new consumer products.

When you think the other is dumb, you are making a fool of yourself

A young boy enters a barber shop and the barber whispers to his Customer,
“This is the dumbest kid in the world. Watch while I prove it to you.”The barber puts a dollar in one hand and 25 cents in the other,then calls the boy over and asks, “Which do you want, son?”
The boy takes 25 cents and leaves.”What did I tell you?” said the barber. “That kid never learns!

Later, when the customer leaves, he sees the same young boy coming out of the ice cream store. “Hey,son, May I ask you a question? Why did you take 25 cents instead of the dollar?”
The boy licked his cone and replied, “Because the day I take the dollar, the game’s over!

Moral: Sometimes, when you think the other is dumb, you are making a fool of yourself.

Blackle – Black version of google

Blackle is nothing but a black version of google. I appreciate the concept Ontkush came up with.

“A few months ago, TreeHugger Mark Ontkush wrote a post on his blog EcoIron titled Black Google Would Save 750 Megawatt-hours a Year. The post lays out the following train of thought. “An all white web page uses about 74 watts to display, while an all black page uses only 59 watts.” Google, which has a white background and gets about “200 million queries a day” could reduce global energy use by 750 Megawatt-hours a year by simply changing the color of its homepage to black.In response to this post a black version of Google emerged called Blackle.com.
According to Blackle’s homepage at publication time, 4,408.917 Watt hours have been saved by. Nice ideas. But how does the search measure up? Very well indeed. Give it a whirl yourself and start saving energy one search at a time. :: Blackle.com

So here’s your site: http://www.blackle.com/

Piggie Equation about Men and Women

Human = eat + sleep + work + enjoy
Pigs = eat + sleep

Hence,  Human = Pigs + work + enjoy
Implies Human – enjoy = Pigs + work

In other words,
Human that don’t know enjoy = pigs that work

********************************************************

Men = eat + sleep + earn money
Pigs = eat + sleep

Hence,  Men = Pigs + earn money
Implies Men – earn money = Pigs

In other words,
Men that don’t earn money = Pigs

********************************************************

Women = eat + sleep + spend
Pigs = eat + sleep

Hence,   Women = Pigs + spend
Implies, Women – spend = Pigs

In other words,
Women that don’t spend = Pigs

********************************************************

Summary:
Men earn money not to let women become pigs!
Women spend not to let men become pigs!

Smart Cock

A farmer rears twenty-five young hens and one old cock. As he feels that the old cock could no longer handle his job efficiently, the farmer bought one young cock from the market.

Old cock to Young cock : “Welcome to join me, we will work together towards productivity.
Young cock : What ya mean? As far as I know, you are old and should be retired.
Old cock : Young boy, there are twenty-five hens here, can’t I help you with some?
Young cock : No! Not even one, all of them will be mine.
Old cock : In this case, I shall challenge you to a competition and if I win you shall allow me to have one hen and if I loose you will have all.
Young cock : O.K. What kind of competition?
Old cock : 50 meter run. From here to that tree. But due to my age, I hope you allow me to start off the first 10 meters.
Young cock : No problem ! We will compete tomorrow morning.

Confidently, the following morning, the Young cock allows the Old cock to start off and when the Old cock crosses the 10 meters mark the Young cock chases him with all his might.
Soon enough, he was behind the Old cock back in a matter of seconds.Suddenly,Bang! ……before he could overtake the old cock..

He was shot dead by the farmer, who cursed, “What the hell ! This is the fifth GAY chicken I’ve bought this week!

Grandma – Grandpa Love Story

Grandpa and Grandma always got very excited when they recalled the old days they were together. They made a decision, one day to make it “yesterday once more“. They made a date on the riverbank they used to go when they were young. The next day, Grandpa got up 6 a.m. in the morning, dashed to the bank, picked up a big bunch of wild flowers before sunrise, waited there for his sweetheart to come. But grandpa ended in disappointment grandma never showed up even after sunset.

Grandpa went home in such anger. He opened the door, seeing grandma lying on the sofa with her pillow. He threw the flowers on the floor and questioned: “Why didn’t you come to our date?

Grandma hid her head in the pillow and replied shyly: “Mom didn’t allow me to go…” J …..
