Mysore beats Bangalore on WiFi

Yes its true that the IT captial of India aka Bangalore is still not wire-free as Mysore. City of Palaces becomes the first city in India to go completely WiFi, now u can stay connected from irrespective of the location in the city without wires.

I hope Bangalore takes a note of it and we do have it in the near future, currently only some of the Coffeeshops & Hotels in Bangalore provide WiFi.

GBS - Google Blog Search

Yes the Search giant has added another dimension to their search engine, this time it searches the *Blogs*. Still a Beta search, i guess it will take sometime before people start using it more often for considering fellow bloggers opinions/feedbacks on any topic. I did a search for my name [Vivek Kondur] and the reuslts are quite good, as it featured many of my posts randomly from different blogs.

But, i am sure this guy wouldn't agree with what i have said about the search results,..."Improved Relevancy: One example. I did a search for my name [Gary Price] and found several non-relevant results in the first 20. In the second result "Gary" is found in one part of the post and "Price" in another. Then, back to results mentioning yours truly before posts discussing the "price" of movies for sale. Note: Yes, of course, I could search "Gary Price" and get more precise results but most searchers don't use quotes to denote phrases".

ENV - Emission Netural Vehicle

Did u read the heading right? Yes it’s true, there is indeed a vehicle which doesn’t pollute a bit and what it emits would surprise you even more, any guesses for what the emission would be? It emits 'WATER', making it one of the ENVs. I watched it on BBC World yesterday night.

To know more about the technology behind the bike and other stuff then you could find some info over here: BBC | Bludja | Fuelcellsworks | Update by Bludja.
