Google Docs


Written on 4:40 PM by nitesh

Google has just launched Google Docs application which is just integration of writely and Google spreadsheets. The new site now shows all the spreadsheets documents and writely documents in a single list. This is another shot towards the Microsoft’s cash cow office and towards other online office suites competitors like zoho.

I will review it later but will write about the one feature that I tested on it that is converting your email, word or any others documents to pdf format online using the Google docs.

  1. On logging to the Google docs you will get a unique id where you can email your documents. One can also upload the documents using the upload feature.
  2. After sending the mail you will receive a email from the Google server which would contain a link to the document.
  3. Open the document and use save as pdf, word or other options to save your documents.

I don’t see it’s extensive use in a country like India where net access is still very less compared to population, slowly these application particularly web 2.0 will be used extensively here.

Most Expensive Trailer Ever


Written on 1:55 PM by nitesh

Casino Royale:: Sony

Hearing about the most expensive trailer raises the expectation bar to a new level, but there was nothing in it with special focus on the scenes on bond with the VAIO. Just like other trailers lost of gadgets were shown but Aston martin was missed by me. I feel they are also counting the cost of scenes directly taken from the movie in the commercial otherwise very few scenes are shot specially for the trailer.

I also felt watching the trailer that bond could have thrown the sony batteries to kill the enemies as the batteries are already blasting in the whole world

So now there is no need to store them in laptops or usb’s and carry them while giving presentations and also there is no need to email the slides to the listener just upload them on slideshare.

Users for this application are endless. Professors can upload their lecture slides on slideshare and let students access them so there is no need for sharing them on network

One cool thing is that the files are stored in their server named after bollywood divas like aish, bipasha, dia and Celina.

There are few limitations presentation size is limited to 20mb. One can’t edit the slides after uploading them.

Good features are user can put the slides on their blog. Each slide has its own permanent URL for reference. Tags and comments can be added to uploaded presentations.

Here is my presentation which i uploaded on slideshare.

Hear the beats on Gigabeat

This is the new iPod rival. Will it be able to alter iPod market only time will tell? Presently it is only available in Japan and Toshiba will make it available in other markets soon.

Here is comparison between ipod and gigabeat from I4U

Key Aspect

Apple iPod 20GB

Toshiba Gigabeat G20




76.5mm x 12.7mm x 89.5mm

in Volume terms: iPod takes 106cm3 and the G20 takes 86.9cm3, that means the G20 has 20cm3 less volume.




G20 is lighter by 21g.




Pretty sure both use the same Toshiba 1.8" HD


USB 2.0 / Firewire

USB 2.0

equal footing here, besides the G20 is only supporting Windows PCs.


white Apple Look

Japanese Electronics Style

Different looks but both attractive


MP3, Wav, aiff

WMA, MP3, Wav

iPod cannot play Windows Media Files

Screen Size



iPod has a bit bigger display.




iPod uses its own DRM system that works with iTunes. Toshiba seems to have no support yet for Microsoft's DRM.

Battery Life

8 hours

11 hours

The Toshiba goes 3 hours longer!

Remote Control



Docking Station






The Gigabeat is only available in Japan. When Toshiba releases the Gigabeat in the US, it will most likely match the price. The Japanese street price is around $450.

As i don't have this i can't review it so for review Toshiba Gigabeat G20 MP3 Player Review
