It's getting funnier....

Ganguly dropped from the Nagpur test. Brace yourself for the backlash, the obituaries and the unasked-for opinions from journalists, ex-cricketers and maybe even politicians all over the Indian media.

BEST goes digital

Just saw that BEST (local bus transport in Mumbai) has a website now. They have all the routes, maps, fares, timings etc. and also have a cool history page. Now all that is left is an online bus tracking system.

Staying on the topic of Mumbai, here is a nice aerial view of the heart of Mumbai. Click to enlarge & view the details. Link via Nandan.

End of an era

It's the end of an era: Western Union Stops Sending Telegrams. Soon we will see an end to telephones as they are replaced by mobiles & VOIP phones. Then CDs & DVDs & their kind. The next few years will kill off most of the technology we grew up with.....

Quoth the Matrix:
Neo: It's impossible...!
Bane/Smith: Not impossible. Inevitable.
