October 31, 2010  //  Posted by: cooldude  //  Category: Technology

Most of our sources of energy are coming from non-renewable sources of energy. In fact, as the population increases the consumption of these resources increases as well. Now that people are getting conscious of the impending doom that we are going to meet as these resources are getting depleted, people are moving towards using renewable sources of power. One of the best examples of these is the solar power. The energy that comes from the sun is quite a lot. This is not something that is going to diminish soon.  That is why those people who are advocating everyone to go green is furthering the cause of the use of solar power.

But how can you incorporate solar power in your life? One of the best ways is to give up on the traditional sources of power and use the new solar power sources. You can cook with the help of solar power. At the same time you can even use a car that is solar powered. In fact some people have even started to invest in solar power technology. In case you are planning to buy mutual funds. Do not stick to the regular ones, but invest in the eco friendly mutual funds.

Xbox 360 vs. PS3

October 31, 2010  //  Posted by: cooldude  //  Category: Technology

There are two sides to everything. The world has good-bad, heaven-hell, up-down and Xbox-PS3! Yes, the ultimate debate! But will it ever get old? Don’t think so.

This debate is never ending because of the quality that both these products have. But there is a possibility that you could narrow down the features as you can play the same game in both the consoles. Even then it is highly impossible to rate the specific features as both the consoles offer extremely high quality.

But the PS3 has its edge over the Xbox due to its affordability. You don’t have to pay for Wi-Fi, online gaming, Internet Browsing or the amazing Blu-Ray facilities in PS3 while nothing comes for free in the 360. Moreover, the 360 reportedly has a 35% failure rate while the PS3 has only around 2-3%. The PS3 definitely has more games than the 360. So taking all these into account, it can be said that PS3 is the current leader in the gaming world.

October 29, 2010  //  Posted by: cooldude  //  Category: Web & Internet

Lots of them have tried to enter the battle but at the end of the day only two strong competitors survived! Yes, the Smartphone business is a field which is now contested intensely by Apple and Google. Last month, Google updated its famous Android Operating System by releasing Android 2.2 better known as FroYo. Apple hit back by releasing its very own iOS version 4.0

Now, it is up to us to decide which is better. This judging process won’t be easy as both the Operating Systems are becoming almost flawless.

The iOS 4.0 is much awaited for its multi tasking abilities. The new edition will make it possible to listen to music, attend calls and check e-mails at the same time.

Android is well known for its flash support (which isn’t possible on iOS) and the new edition will make it possible to connect up to eight devices through Wi-Fi.

The competition is heating up! Let us hope that we get the best out of this intense battle.
