    Today’s read: Various ! 

    It’s been a while since I wrote anything here. I was kinda busy with so many things and that made me to stay away from writing for these many days.

    Today I’ve found a few articles in fastcompany.com (via twitter), fastcodesign.com & Smashing Magazine. And I’m really surprised by some of the facts which I found and some facts are really cool.

    1. You Can’t Appreciate How Completely Apple Has Humiliated The Cellphone Industry Until You See These Charts (Article page)
    This really surprised me. This article talks about how Apple rules the cell phone industry in terms of the profit they make even though they sell only 3% of the handsets! Don’t miss the charts in that page. They tell lot of stories.

    2. Google Steals Ideas From Bing, Bing Steals Market Share From Google (Article page)
    This made me happy. I am a big Microsoft fan though I work most on open source ! And I am really happy with the way how Bing works for them.

    3. Create a Font From Your Own Handwriting (Article page)
    This is what the article says !

    If you’re nostalgic for the days of long, handwritten letters, Pilot Pens has unveiled a new Web-based app that’s perfect for you: PilotHandwriting.com will turn your handwriting into your very own digital font, which you can then use in a letter to someone.

    4. Designing Style Guidelines For Brands And Websites (Article page)
    The article talks more about the branding guidelines, usage of colors, text and fonts with the help of guidelines followed by some of the well known global brands like BlackBerry, I love New York and Skype.

    Have a nice read !

    Today’s read: How To Permanently Delete Your Account on Popular Websites 

    How To Permanently Delete Your Account on Popular Websites via Smashing Magazine.

    I had to struggle a lot to get rid of my orkut account! It was not very easy. When I was doing that I really wished to have some FAQs and guidelines which I read and understand. But tough luck, I didn’t find anything then. But I found this article in Smashing Magazine today, and I think this is really useful.

    We all have an increasing number of sites and online services we’re members of, and sometimes it all gets a little overwhelming. At times, we just need to delete our memberships to some sites, either in an effort to simplify our lives or just because we’ve grown tired of a particular site or service.

    What we often don’t realize when signing up for all these accounts, though, is how difficult it can be to permanently delete our accounts when we’ve had enough. Some require complicated, multi-step processes that can stretch over the course of days (or weeks). Others take less time, but still require multiple steps by the user.

    An interesting find ! Google App Engine with Java support 

    image

    I was just going through code.google.com, and just find a link titled “App Engine”. I was not at all surprised as they do this every time. With Google something is new every time. I went on reading. Oh God! Free J2EE app engine where we can host our archives ! This is one of the coolest things I was waiting to happen. The server where I hosted (and I’m still with them) my website does not have Java support and I spend many hours in writing Php codes after many hours of searching and testing, which I could have done in minutes with Java. And most importantly it’s almost FREE ! We have to pay them only if we are crossing the specified bandwidth & page view limits.

    We can write code with Google’s Eclipse plug-in (with GWT support !), test them with in Eclipse and deploy them from Eclipse! Isn’t that cool? All you need is to have a Google account and just get it done. We can have up to nine applications each with a unique URL to access and we can even link them with our Google Apps too.

    Check this video: Get an overview of App Engine’s new Java runtime and see a demo of a sample app from creation to deployment.

    • For me this is nicest offer from Google in the recent times. I don’t know whether all of you are going to agree with this. But at least I’m happy. Hope all of you will find it nice.
