Google shadiness

Google has this habit of testing out new features without so much as a peep. Just today, I discovered this: an option to search the "I'm Feeling Lucky" site (for sites that offer additional options below the main search hit) from within the main search results page.



Nice. Saves me the effort (sometimes) of doing a "site:example.com" manually. I don't think that site would like it too much though, as it could detract from their pagehits.

iMeh, redux

What's that sound? I feet a great disturbance in the iForce, as if millions of voices cried out in iLust, and were suddenly silenced.

The Nokia N96 was tipped at a price-point of 36k. I guess Nokia might peel that back a tad and make it more like 32-34k. At 16gb + features that iPhone lacks in + the non-requirement of Our Lord & Saviour Sir Steve Jobs' blessing for everything you do, should see this slick piece do a fair bit better than the iPhone.

Sadly, however, it seems likely that the type to plop down 30k+ for a cellphone might not be too sensitive to a Rs.2000 difference, and forge on ahead for the "TEH SHINY!!1" and "2 KEWL 4 U LOL!" factors..
