Order Food via Twitter! Faasos!

Order Food via Twitter! Faasos!

I, and my family, love Faasos! We love their wraps! They are delivered hot and are simply delicious! We discovered them by word of mouth – the mouth of my brother-in-law Rohan Padhi, who likes to keep it stuffed with choice food whenever and where ever he can find it. The problem is that he runs everyday and the stuff he stuffs his mouth with does not immediately take up residence around his waist and belly. Not fair! But I…

Rediff Mail – Forward to GMail

Rediff Mail – Forward to GMail

My wife and brother-in-law bought an iPad for my father-in-law, Sudhakar Padhi. I of course got the job of making sure it is all setup with the appropriate accessibility settings so that he can use it. He has low vision and used to read a lot before his eye sight started deteriorating. It is stable now but he has trouble reading anything less that font size 32. Anyway, he has been using Rediff Mail – don’t ask me why! I…

Rajiv advised me to get a Facebook account. And I must…

Google Chrome – Memory Usage

Google Chrome – Memory Usage

This morning I made Google Chrome my default browser at the expense of FireFox. There is one thing I don’t like – the placement of the Tab bar. It is at the top of the window, where the window’s title bar is. It prefer it in the default position under all the toolbars. Anyway, while I was following around with the tab bar, I realized that you can click a Tab and pull it away, forming a new Browser Window!…

Google Chrome – First Impressions

Google Chrome – First Impressions

The download was fast. Installation was easy. I had one hick up. I had FireFox running. Of course! The Google Chrome installer politely informed me that it could not import settings from FireFox as long as it was running. Google Chrome copied my bookmarks from FireFox, recognizing my Bookmark toolbar shortcuts and making them available as soon as the browser started. The interface is clean and uncluttered. (Click for full size image) Then I got my first surprise. I started…
