I'm a Nikon fanboy and have recently purchased a D40. This baby packs in a great punch in a small, affordable package. It's great for casual users, while still leaving scope for the semi-pro's to...

This debate has been on for quite a number of pages now, and everything that has to be said about the legal aspect of this matter has been debated. Coming from a rather lawless part of the world (as...

I carry my Acer laptop to work everyday on a backpack. I tried a messenger bag for a while, but it kept shifting and was a general PIA. And I hardly can feel the 3.5 kgs plus papers, books and, at...

A day towards which we seem to be hurtling at breakneck speed. :)

Seriously though, I feel that motorized vehicles do have their place. It's only their mindless usage that turns me off, like the...

I have never driven a car in my entire life. I don't even know how to drive a car, nor do I have a license. Before getting my bicycle, I would often wait at bus stops and watch the world whiz by with...
