Google fined NT$1 million by Taipei !

It seems like Google's problems with Chinese nations would not end soon. After the departure of Google from China, now, Taipei has imposed a fine of NT$1 million on Google for refusing to provide 7 day trial period to consumers on apps downloaded from Android Market and suspending the availability of such apps for its users !

The conflict between Google Android Market's Terms of Service and Consumer protection Law of Taipei, and Google's refusal to resolve the things has led to this move by Taipei city government.

According to TOS of Android Market, Money refunding is available only for 15 minutes from the moment of app download. But the Consumer Protection Law allows users to return their purchases by 7 days for refund. On this conflict, City Government had asked Google to resolve this issue by providing 7-day trial period. But Google refused, and suspended sales of paid apps in city.

Government warned Google on this regard, asked for an explanation and demanded for improvements by 23rd of June. Government had threatened Google to impose NT$300,000. But Google asked for grace period on expiration of the deadline. Later when Google refused to bend their "rules", Government took action by imposing NT$1 million fine.

Google is now up for another round of talks with City Government on 30th of June but still, there are many problems for Google, on the way. The 15 minute trial period is universally imposed by online retail platforms and Google can't make decisions alone.

Whatever it is, Google has a tough time there in Taiwan !

Yoda, The ugliest dog in the World !

"You are pretty ugly !", this kind of statement seems weird but is buzzing all around. There are many shows and competitions which provide stage to showcase your beauty. But here is a competition for dogs, which is dedicated to find the world's ugliest dog, most importantly, it is running from last 23 years !

Yoda, a chinese-crested and chihuahua hybrid dog is named as winner of 23rd annual contest yesterday at sonoma marin fair in northern California. And it is now officially the world's ugliest dog. The proud owner of Yoda, Terry Schumacher of Hanford, California said that the dog has come a long way since she was found abandoned behind an apartment building.

Terry was scared when she first found this dog behind the apartment and thought it as a bubbled rat. But later on clear observation, she found it a dog and took her home for immediate care. This 14 year old dog replaced the last year's champ, one eyed chihuahua named Princess Abby, and earned her owner $1000 and a lovely trophy (how many days would we need to earn that decent sum of money ?!).

In last few years, chinese crested and chihuahua dogs have won this title many times. What is your bet, pretty, ugly, or pretty ugly ? ;)

Kitara - The Misa Digital Guitar !

Guitar, a music instrument which is an essential part of today's every music track, has constantly evolved through times. Acoustic guitars ruled the music world once, then came the electric guitar to that place. And now it is time to welcome digital guitar ! Take a look at these images of Misa Digital Guitar !

Kitara, the misa digital guitar, which looks like an electric guitar in shape, but with no strings ! "wth, guitar without strings ?! How can one control the sound then ?!!" Well, all you need is a touch ! Yes, Kitara replaces strings with a sporty 8 inch multi touch display, and touching the screen builds notes ! The position of your touch and movement decides the way sound is generated.

Its neck has 24 frets where strings are relpaced by buttons. You can apply number of digital effects, save sounds as presets, and swap preset files online. Everthing is configurable, just by your touch. This guitar is powered by Linux operating system.

But Kitara is not created as a replacement to electric guitar. Electric guitars are good for electric music and digital guitar has a different story. Misa digital guitar is an experimental instrument that concentrates on digitizing music and easing the guitarists' work.

Whatever the things maybe, it is kinda cool and innovative thought which could revolutionize the music world in near future !

Rich beggar ! old woman with huge money !

Rich Beggar !! It sounds funny, weird and meaningless but it is true ! An old woman named Rambai, living in the streets of khammam, AP, India was found having nearly Rs.80,000 cash in a cloth bag. Interesting thing is, she had nearly 10,000 to 15,000 coins in that bag !!

When she was begging in the streets, a theif snatched her money bag and ran away. She started shouting and police chased the thief. Fed up theif, threw the bag and ran away. After recovering the bag, police counted the money and found Rs.80,000 cash, for their surprise ! Police had a hard time in counting that money with so much of coins. It is said that she has collected this money by begging for years. The language barrier is an obstacle for police men to find her origin now.

Police men have created a Bank Account in her name and have deposited the money.

That old woman look like she would die in few years. But why she is collecting so much of money at this age, I don't know ! More sad thing is, she is still begging despite of owning so much of money. If she continue begging, there is no difference in she having money or the theif taking it away !

Live for you ! A short story by Chetan Bhagat

If you love reading stories, here is a short story by one of my favorite Novelist, Chetan Bhagat.
I like him not because of my name is same as his first name, but there will always be some freshness in his story. I found it accidentally, but it is a good story, so thought of sharing with you all. Hope you like this,here is how the story begins:

Everyone will give you an opinion on how to live your life. No one, no one will give you good advice on how to end it. Worse, they will tell you to continue living, without any respect for individual choice. Yes, hi, I’m Gautam Arora, and after eighteen wonderful years in Delhi, I’ve decided to end my life.

I sat with my best friend Neeraj and his girlfriend Anjali at Costa Coffee, DLF Metropolitan Mall in Saket. The coffee is way overpriced, but considering I had a day to live, I didn’t mind getting ripped off.

“The joke isn’t that funny,” Neeraj said, tearing open the second sachet of brown sugar and mixing it for his girlfriend. If this girl can’t mix sugar in her coffee, I wonder what she will be like after marriage.

“Do I look like I am joking? You are in medical college, and as a friend and someone two years elder to me, I am asking your advice on what is the most painless, graceful way to go. And ideally, it should be available at the friendly neighbourhood chemist,” I said. I ordered a chocolate fudge cake. What are a few extra calories on your last day? >>Read more here>>

Love Reading Story Books ? I recommend you Five Point Someone by Chetan Bhagat.

An Extra ordinary story of Survival !

To become a mother is every married female's desire. But it takes her through a tough course of 9 months before she could become mother. These 9 months are filled with lot of happiness, anxiety and fear. But how scary it would be, if someone has to be pregnant for 46 years ?!! Unbelievable but it is true in case of Zahra !

Zahra Aboutalib is a 75 year old woman from Morocco who finally gave birth to a dead baby, after 46 years ! It all started in 1955, in a village of Casablanca, when Zahra was a 25 year old lady who was pregnant for her first child. As she reached 9th month of pregnancy, it normally started to pain in her stomach. For her bad luck, the baby didn't shift even after 48 hours and doctors said that caesarian is the only way for her to take out the baby. But when Zahra saw another pregnant woman next to her table dying with the pain of caesarian, She went on panic. So she decided not to go for caesarian, but to die with her child in womb.

As a local myth said, because of curse, babies tend to sleep inside womb which would come out later in time. She believed in this myth called "Sleeping baby", and let her fate to decide this.

Day by day the pain started to increase but she didn't bother. As days passed, baby stopped moving inside and the pain went away. She adopted three children to forget the sad feeling and became a grand mother. Everything was going fine for five decades untill that day come.

In 2001, her stomach was swollen again and it started paining. As the pain grew unbearable, her son took her to a hospital in town. Primary check up didn't help doctors to understand anything. After a detailed MRI, doctors weren't able to believe what they saw, there was a stone baby which was 46 years old !! During early days, the baby had developed outside the womb and fused with Zahra's internal organs. This made the baby unable to be born, and finally it died. This dead body developed a layer of hard calcified material around the baby, to protect itself from infection which the doctors called as stone baby.

But it is impossible to carry a dead baby inside. Then what made it possible ? Answer is, Zahra's body had accepted the stone baby as any other normal organ !! This time she had to under go surgery, but with better infrastructure & technology, it made possible to save her. And thus making it an extra ordinary story of Survival !

Talking to yourself, Not just normal but good too !

Are you a one who talk to yourself ? Are you afraid people would think bad about you because of this ? Or are you worried yourself about this issue ? Cool, Talking to yourself is not just normal but good too !

It is a common thing in society that self-talking people are considered mad. Even the people who talk themselves are also worried about their health. But research shows that it is not a sign of any disease but it is a good sign for yourself. The study reveals that people who talk to themselves can overcome stress & depression easily than others. It helps them to cope up with pressure and even reduce blood pressure ! Not just this, it even strengthen your immune system. I always keep talking myself when I feel stressed, and it really make me strong !

Communicating yourself verbally makes you feel relaxed and helps self control. These people are found to be more self-confident than others. When matters are too sensitive or secretive, talking to yourself prove to be a good medicine. It increases self-analysing power and helps taking strong decisions on your own.

After learning these much of uses from talking to yourself, are you still worried about what society thinks ?

Dream can help you beat your Depression !

Whether you believe or not, everyone dream everyday atleast for two hours. A normal human being over the age of 10, dream 4 to 6 times a day. Some dreams, if you remember, make sense while most of them seems to be fairy tale. Many people have same dreams repeated over and over and that has also got no reason. Few people think dreams have hidden meaning but there is no proof for both agreeing and disagreeing. So when it comes to dreams, all have their own beliefs and hard to reach a conclusion.

Why do we dream ? Well, No one can answer this question exactly but if we try to answer for some extent, dreams occur to put your feelings into action ! Some says dreams are a natural part of the sleep cycle and serve no purpose. But there is still a lot of differences even between the experts who study about dreams.

Do animals & birds also dream ?! We can never know for sure. Only thing we can do is measuring whether they have REM (rapid eye movement) sleep or not, which is more or less associated with dreams (I could always see our dog barking in dream & shaking his legs like he is chasing someone !). Let us not go deep into science of dreams. But you know what ? Dreams can help you control your stress, anxiety and depression.

We normally dream about the problems, feelings and circumstances that we live during day time. Dreams don't just go with imagination but we really 'Experience' it !! So do we really die if we die in our dreams ?! No, this is absolutely a myth. Dreams provide you with such an opportunity that you can simulate your own life in risk without actually taking risk ! If you are too scared of your final exams, you are most likely to dream about it and you will actually fail in those dream exams !! But if you remember your dream for some extent, your stress & anxiety will cool down and you are likely to do the exams well than before. It is not just about exams, it applies to all sort of emotions, feelings and problems.

Researchers conducted a research on women who were recently divorced. And they found that the participants who dreamed about their ex-husband, showed a better emotional mood the next morning. These women were also able to recover from their depression much quicker than the women who either did not dream about their ex-husband or couldn’t remember their dreams. Rosalind CartWright, a sleep researcher says, “It really shows that there was an ongoing working through the night in the dream material, and eventually that the depression lifted in those people.”

But one thing we have to note here is, it is important to remember the dream. only then we can find some benifits from dream. If you don't remember what you dreamt of, most likely it will have no effect on your normal life !

Oldest Father on Earth at the age of 94 !

Can you believe that a 94 year old man could become father ? A 94 year old man from a small town in Haryana, India is claimed to be the oldest father in the world. The earlier record was in the name of Nanu Ram Jogi from Rajasthan, India who was claimed to become father at the age of 90 !

Ramajit Raghav is the new oldest father, living in a small town, Kharkhoda in Sonipat district of Haryana state. His old-age pension records reveal that his age is 94. His wife Shakuntala, who gave birth to the child is said to be in her fifties. He is originally from a village called Begpur in Uttar Pradesh who had left home about 40 years ago after a violent dispute in his family and was living at the current town from last 22 years.

He proudly says that he had been a wrestler in his youth and his daily diet which was comprised of 3 litres milk, half kg ghee & half kg almonds has helped him to survive at this age. He says that it is a 'God's Gift' to become father at this age and has named his child as Karamjit. Doctors have confirmed that his wife gave birth to a healthy male child and it belongs to him. They also said that it is a rare case but possibilities can't be denied.

New dual-sim mobile phones by Nokia

Finally Nokia has understood that its inability to bring out good dual-sim phones was the reason for their fallen consumer interest in India. Realizing this truth, now they have unveiled two new dual-sim phones with wonderful features. These phones were brought out at an event called "Twins Day Out". It all started with 60 twins parading before showing the phones out.

Last year, Nokia had brought out one dual-sim phone but it was not a success as lot of other companies had attracted consumers with their products. But this time, Nokia has came back strongly. It claims that C2-00 is the first dual-sim phone to have 'easy swap', which allows users to change SIM cards without the need to turn off the phone or remove the battery. The phone also remembers the settings for up to five separate SIM cards. Another phone, X1-01 comes with a big battery life upto 36 hours of continuous music playback. It also features two in-built speakers and supports memory card upto 16 GB. While C2-00 would cost around $65 (Rs.3,000), X1-01 costs around $42 (Rs.2,000).

They stand above all !

Most of we people have never lived a single day blaming life for the circumstances we live in. Everyone thinks that their problems are bigger than the others'. In the excitement of cursing life, we have forgotten to live the Life. But there are few people who stand apart, and one among such people is Jessica Cox.

We have two eyes, arms, legs and everything working right. But still we feel it is not enough to achieve something in life. But unlike most of us, Jessica Cox, a girl from Tucson, Arizona was born without arms. But this defect never deterred her from being normal and flying over the world with her feet. She is able to put her contact lenses, apply makeup & brush hair using her feet ! Doing every everyday activities and even driving a car is not at all a challenge to her. She was the first person to get black belt in the American Tae Kwon-Do Association and the first pilot in aviation history to fly with her feet !!

This doesn't mean that she hasn't struggled through the life ! But It shows that how one can surpass the one's disability.

What would you do to own an iPad 2 ? Sell Kidney ??!!

It is an everyone's dream to own a pretty cool gadget like iPad. People are so crazy about this device that they are ready to wait in queue from midnight itself to buy this. But can you believe if someone has sold his kidney to buy an iPad ?!! If you don't, you have to !!

One 17 year old chinese teen surnamed Zheng from Anhui province has sold his kidney to buy iPad, reported on Shanghai Daily. According to the report, this boy was so restless to buy an iPad but couldn't affort it. But when a black market human organs dealer contacted him online and offered $3100 for selling his kidney, the boy found it as a last chance to own iPad.

The boy then travelled to the place fixed by the dealer and got his kidney removed in a local hospital. As promised, the boy was paid the money and he was able to buy a brand new iPad. His mother came to know this and filed a complaint against the delears. Investigation is going on now but dealers are not found yet.

Zheng is now suffering from post-surgical issues, and even the hospital where his kidney removed is not qualified for organ transplantation ! He is regretting now for his mistake and his health is getting worse day by day but there is nothing they can do now.
A mistimed decision lead him to this kind of problems. Now bringing the boy to normal life is much important than finding the culprits.

No more "Twitter" & "Facebook" on Radio and Television in France !

You might feel awkward to hear this but it is true that Radio Jockeys, Television anchors, News Presenters or any media are not allowed to use the words "Twitter" & "Facebook" in France. It seems like French Government is obsessed with making crazy laws which obviously make people feel awkward.

This is not a joke but a real regulatory ruling measure by the France Government. News Presenters can't say "For more news, follow us on Facebook & Twitter" any more. The reason behind this law is unknown but aren't the people of France willing to know ? Well, if it was in UK, USA or somewhere else, It would have been a huge news for the Media and lots of protests would have gone through. But it seems like French media has taken it simple and are seen with their normal routine as usual. Only a few people have raised their voice over blogs and Social networks but that really doesn't prevent the Government from strictly enforcing this Law !

Want to be fit and strong ? Start running backwards !

Who doesn't want to be fit ? don't you want to be fit, strong, and slim ? Yes, everyone wants to be, or atleast most people on earth ! Many people jogg several miles daily to be fit. Shall I suggest you a small tip to get more effectiveness with less effort ? If you are ready to listen, then start jogging backwards ! I know it sounds awkward but experts claim that backward running protects joints and burns more calories.

According to a study at the University of Oregon, running backwards reduces impact on the joints and helps in protecting you from knee & back problems. It is considered to be a shortcut to get fit ! As the study suggested, reverse runners need to move at only 80% speed than forward runners to gain same benifits. Another study by Stellenbosch University in South Africa also suggests that this technique can improve cardio vascular fitness as reported in The Daily Mail.

The study was based on effects of six week, female students running backwards three days/week while others were left to continue with their normal fitness routine. At the end, reverse runners were found to have significant decrease in their oxygen consumption, meaning they were aerobically fitter than before and they had also lost 2.5% of body fat.

James Bamber, the organizer of the UK's backward races, says that running one lap backwards is equivalent to running 6 laps forward. This is not a new concept, emerged during 70s, when sprots doctors started recommending reverse running to injured athletes !

So what do you think now ? Reverse is better ? ;)
