So Wolfram Alpha the hyped up computational knowledge machine (aka Skynet) released today and I was pretty impressed. Although I can’t find myself using it in any regularity as I don’t find myself asking myself what the height of Mount Everest is divided by the length of the Golden Gate Bridge very often. Unless I’m doing a pop quiz with a deadline I can find much the same information through the google tab on the top left of my browser, without having to type in the ridiculously long name wolframalpha! Until they allow you to upload your own data and have it graph it for you and do regression and other funky stuff, I’m just going to keep this on the backburner.

Definitely worth watching out for and checking out though – www.wolframalpha.com

omegle
So last night bored as a bat I tried out Omegle.com, a web based chat service that randomly connects you a one on one chat with a stranger.

Surprisingly I haven’t seen this concept tried before and it’s quite good fun.

A couple of interesting highlights –
A male stranger who started off the conversation with “I need buttsex”.
A 31 year old swedish stranger who attempted to prank me as ‘Daphne the Armenian villager from Ptzuk’, a quick wiki search rendered her full of it very quickly and after a good conversation I got to pranking myself as Burunsi the Ethiopian gun smuggler.
A 20 year old brasilian girl who started off the conversation with “I need a husband” who I planned my future wedding with.

If you’re doing any repetitive tasks on your computer and you have basic understanding of programming concepts this program is the shiznit in making your day a helluva lot more efficient.

Use it to change abbreviations into full blow emails or hotkeys into repeating a simple task like multiple copy and paste, clicking and much much more.

Feedly
I had this add on for literally more than one month and didn’t even bother to figure out how it worked, assuming it was just another social sharing addon, I just didn’t use it, until yesterday and DAMN, Feedly is my new startpage now and until yesterday that was Netvibes. Feedly takes all your RSS feeds and displays it to you in a magazine style format and has variations of the layout based on your preference, but it beats anything I’ve seen so far hands down.

Feedly Digest

Netvibes needs to take some pointers from Feedly, their readability is wayyy better. Feedly needs to take some pointers from Netvibes too if they wanna compete in start pages, add widgets, email and the like and IMO they will easily overtake Netvibes.

Download Feedly from here.
