Steve Jobs' greatest speech:

This is one of the finest legacies left by Steve Jobs. It describes the destiny factor that often is important to shape our lives and ends with the role of death as a finality, a certainty as necessary as life. This is the mind of Steve Jobs, at its best.

The black drongo- an elusive bird of Kerala

The "black drongo" is a name that is new to me. I did quite a bit of internet search to find the name of this cute looking bird. ALso called the "king crow", it looks like the crow, but is smaller and has a split tail (bifurcated tail). I took a video of this rather elusive bird from my balcony, yesterday morning.

I tried my hand at capturing this bird- with an odd name (who would call this little black bird a- black drongo?)

Some good 3D videos- this is really good:

3D videos are now available on youtube.....And the effects are perhaps better than the one I saw when I watched AVATAR.. the 3D movie. Watch this amateur video made a have to wear read and cyan (blue) 3D glasses to view the 3D effects. But man, this is really good....How come this did not get publicity from google. Enjoy and view on......

Hands on 3D video of the Nintendo 3DS game machine

Nintendo has launched a 3D gaming machine with a 3D digital camera built into the game console. So one can supposedly use this Nintendo 3DS gaming console as a 3D digital camera also. This you tube video is in 3D and to get a 3D view you would need  3D glasses.....However the actual Nintendo 3DS gaming console does NOT need  3 D goggles to use it.
See the video below:
