Top 10 reasons why you shouldn't buy Samsung Galaxy Tab

As I was crawling the Indivine, I realized that many people are telling the world why you should buy the Samsung galaxy tab and I said, hey what the hell, how many times has someone listened to what you say? In-fact, if I get a penny for every time I ask a person to go jump, i'll be richer than the richest man on earth. So the point is, people don't listen. India is a democratic country and people who don't want to buy a Galaxy Tab also exist, we do respect the minorities don't we? This story is about those who don't want to buy a Galaxy Tab.

So let me get to the point and tell you top ten reasons why you shouldn't buy a Samsung Galaxy Tab

1. You still believe that computer should be kept in one corner and there will be a dedicated time to use it.
Because Samsung Galaxy Tab does everything a computer does, except sits in the corner. It moves with you wherever you go in business meetings, with you everywhere.

2. You like bonding with people while asking for direction in the middle of the street.
Its essentially for you to wait in the middle of the streets before asking directions, obviously with Google Maps, you are never lost. Also it is of no use for you if you go to only one place for last 17 years, so what Google Places enlists all the interesting places around you. You are not interested.

3. You have a habit of flipping pages by dipping your index finger and thumb in saliva
So what the readers hub in Samsung Galaxy gives access to 10,000 of titles, so what it has the functions of pinch zoom, virtual bookmarking etc. you don't have the facility to flip pages by dipping your index finger and thumb in saliva.

4. You prefer to wait for an auspicious hour to check all your mail at once
Its a tradition, I can understand. You first take a proper bath, then have a full meal, comb your hair neatly and then sit on the computer to 'Check email', its a tradition. 20 mins in your personal planner are reserved for Checking email. So what if Samsung Galaxy gives you an optimized view of your email instantly. Its not exactly what you what now is it?

5. You are in love with animated Office Assistant in Office desktop suite 
Completely understandable, you love the cute little pin who walks over your document and asks you, 'May I help you with something' Yes you are right. You need the desktop based office, so what if Samsung Galaxy comes pre-loaded with Polaris office that helps you create word document, power-point presentation and spreadsheets on the fly. You will not buy it. Period.

6. A Facebook friend is a Facebook friend, he should not be a phone book friend.
Its fine, so what you are following me on Facebook, twitter, Gtalk and we also share phone numbers. So what Samsung Galaxy comes with a easy to use social hub that integrates all your contacts in one place. Who needs to merge these anyways.

7. Your Walkman has a sentimental values and you still like to change the cassette every now and then.
The classic old ways is the classic old ways. So what if the Samsung Galaxy has a fancy music hub which allows you to access popular and classic songs with artist information, critics review, music review and more, it does not however has the power of playing B side of the cassette.

8. You love your age old, sticky notes organizer... which itself needs organizing, but you love it
A tool that has helped you give so much over so many years. It took you an hour to hunt for the scribe, but you did find the number to that important client it in your organizer and you like it, Who needs the better organizer of Samsung Galaxy tabs, which also directly integrates Google and Facebook calender to the phone calender?

9. The classic old faceless communication is your preferred mode of communication.
If you feel it is completely OK to hide your face while talking. Yes, who needs the high clarity front and rear camera in the phone? Who wants some nice high clarity photos, not you no.

10. You don't need the power of 10.1 inch screen to impress your coworkers.
You are happy with the tiny little phone that simply sits in your pocket doing nothing. It has got no angry birds, no flash support, no power of android Honeycomb, no sleek and light weight design, it has no multitasking, it has nothing.... but it has the digital snake. And you are happy with it. So who cares? You shouldn't buy a galaxy.

So there you go, top ten reason why you shouldn't buy a galaxy but I will. Wonder when will they send it to me?

The moaning of life #2 Childhood Trauma

The entire shark family is out for a hunt, and the little fish are running for their life. We get to cheer as the Baby Shark does Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo with his family, calling on the family - extended family and sometimes robots on the 'hunt' because your offspring decides that that is the one song they want you to play or a tantrum follows. Many of you will say it's not the content but the catchy tune that draws the babies towards the nonsequential song, but it's more than that. It's the sheer repeatedness that draws your angst towards the piece. And YouTube provides the music based on how much time you want your baby to be engaged to it. You have a 60+ minute version and a 120+ minute version. The same shark family going out on the same hunt. And it's not just the Shark family. Weirdly, baby JJ and his family sing random songs, go on a holiday and even increase the family. I am talking about Cocomelon, which has arrived in your child's life as he murmurs t

Short Story: Ginger Chai

This is my first attempt for writing a love story, which I am really bad at. Mani Padma (from Ginger Chai ) challenged me to write a love story a few days ago, it is not a real great read, but a little feeble attempt to take a taste in this genre. Please give your honest opinion… Cheers, Sid. *fingers crossed* Breathe in. Breathe out. Damm, this is so easy when you are not tensed. Why is this clerk talking so much time. ‘Will you hurry up?’ I asked the clerk. My finger nails were tapping the counter in excitement. My name is Shailaja, 30, single and employed, in short a perfect girl for the aunties, mammies to constantly remind me that my days are waning out, that I have to find someone before it is impossible for them to. It is not that I don’t want to get married, but I should get some proper match, isn’t it? All they show me is either short, tall, long nose, meaning some imperfection in some way or the other. I am not at all hopeless romantic and I am definitely not goin

We used to build civilizations. Now we build shopping malls.

The human evolution is a constant race against boredom, men have for generations tried to overcome boredom is many ways possible. In olden days, they got bored, they build civilizations, big massive civilizations. The ancient Egyptians had pyramids, the Babylon build the hanging garden for people to hang out. People from far and wide come to visit the Taj Mahal, praising its divine beauty, not knowing that it was build after the wife died, thus partly in guilt. Rome was not build in a day, indication they were super bored. Then came the great barbarian evolution and they started raiding cities. Don't forget Atila the Hun who constantly attacked cities whenever he got free time. Alexander was super bored and he decided to conquer the entire world, but while these men where attacking cities and building civilizations, the women where thrown into a abyss of impending boredom. What would Mrs. Atila do when her husband was busy attacking Rome? Or What would the wives of the
