I am tone deaf

I am completely tone deaf and I love listening to music. Speaking of music, I like Cowon as their hardware is very good in my eyes and my ears. I had gotten my beloved Rho, a Cowon C2. Wonderful tiny thing with cutesy UI and music producing hardware that always brings every Apple to it's knees. Koreans :)

Gimme the cheapest phone you got.

Roaming charges on my number are killing me. So, the obvious next step would be to get a local SIM, right? Not that easy. I need my current number active as well. Hence, I had to get the proverbial "secondary phone" in which I could stick my original SIM whilst enjoying the delicious delight of normal, almost insignificant rates of a local sim and the cheap 3G internet on my HTC Desire S. The local sim (airtel-Karnataka) gives me 100 sms per day, every day, forever. I am a happy camper... or in this case, a texter.

I need a new Laptop

I'll be joining work (NVIDIA) on 23rd, July'12. Apparently, a business laptop is thrown at me as soon as I enter. In my attempt to keep all the surprises alive, I had implored my colleagues who had joined earlier to stick "SPOILER ALERT!!!", when they'd post something on our freshmen employee's facebook group. Nonetheless, I had came across the fact that it'd be a Dell or a Lenovo, obviously buisness oriented, sporting a measly NVS 4000mx (nvidia quadro mobile).

My First Gaming Rig

The first thing I wanted to do with my money was not to get a car or save up to buy a place... I want a gaming rig. I have put off gaming for the past two years (at least the major titles) because my current machine is currently four years old. In tech years, a four year old machine is archaic.

The Fat Man

No matter how many times I try to assure myself that I am exercising for my health and fitness, I just can't seem to believe myself. Deep down inside, I am pretty sure, I am sweating my ass off for looking good. Duh! It's a self confidence issue. Or maybe, good looking people are better accepted in society, and the media has set this in stone. The stereotype bias is a very real thing. First impressions matter a lot, especially in the dating game. It would be brutally naive to think that physical attractiveness is not a major card in the game of love. Well, at least in the beginning, and then all you have to do is maintain the balance between being a douche-bag and a pansy, to keep the relationship running. Relationships aren't things left to fate and the mystery of love. It takes effort. Anything worth its existence requires effort. If looking good is just another incentive for my partner to be "my partner"... then I don't see why not. Does this fall into the range of "don't change yourself for another person"? (S)He'll love you know matter how you look? That's a pitiful excuse. Get your ass in gear, it's not just for your partner, but the society demands you to look better.
