Google Notebook Rocks

I didn't use any online notebooks till now, but when I saw the announcement of google notebook on official google blog I decided to try it once. I have to accept that I am hooked. First of all the functionality of notebook is so cool. whenever we are searching for some topic on the net and we encounter variety of materials on the web. We read the material, even if we like only a part of the material presented there, we had to save the whole page or file or else we had to copy the material and place it in a notepad or a doc. It was a little cumbersome. Imagine if we close and accidently hit no on the confirmation dialog..! All our efforts are lost. Come notebook, noting information on the web is very easy. You can copy paste the matter into the notebook using your google account. But what was the feature I liked most was the plugin into the browsers which when installed would make your life mighty simpler. All you have to do is to select some text which you want to note and click on clip on the notebook. This feature is lovely. It gets saved into the notebook. The interface is also clean as other google products. Try it..!

Kudos to Supreme Court

The supreme court has done a very good job in chiding the government over the reservation issue. Hot discussion is going on which is worth following. No doubt no polictical party can swallow this issue, what is too bad there is not even one dedicated political party which is really interested in the development of the country. No political party is happy with the decision, which clearly indicate the vote bank politics in India. Government will surely find a way to implement the law as the HRD minister Arjun Singh has said. But it is really pitiable that we are living in a country where everyone is competing to prove that they are backward.... God save this country... As long as such reservations continue brain drain will not stop.. !
