Thoughtful Story -1

Source: Internet.

A cowboy named Banta Singh was overseeing his herd in a remote pasture in Punjab when suddenly a brand-new Ferrari advanced toward him out of a cloud of dust. The driver, a young man in a Brioni suit, Gucci shoes, Armani sunglasses and YSL tie, leaned out the window and asked the cowboy, “If I tell you exactly how many cows and calves you have in your herd, Will you give me a calf?” Banta looked at the man, obviously a yuppie, then looked at his peacefully grazing herd and calmly answered, “Sure, Why not?” The yuppie parked his car, whipped out his macBook Air computer, connected it to his iphone, and surfed to a NASA page on the Internet, where he called up a GPS satellite to get an exact fix on his location which he then fed to another NASA satellite that scanned the area in an ultra-high-resolution photo. The young man then opened the digital photo in iPhoto and exported it to an image processing facility in Italy . Within seconds, he received an email on his iPhone that the image has been processed and the data stored. He then accessed an MS-SQL database through an ODBC connected Excel spreadsheet with email on his iPhone and, after a few minutes, received a response. Finally, he printed out a full-color, 150-page report on his hi-tech, miniaturized Canon LaserJet printer, turned to the cowboy and said, “You have exactly 1,586 cows and calves.” “That’s right. Well, I guess you can take one of my calves,” said Banta. He watched the young man select one of the animals and looked on with amusement as the young man stuffed it into the trunk of his car. Then Banta said to the young man, “Hey, if I can tell you exactly what your business is, will you give me back my calf?” The young man thought about it for a second and then said, “Okay, why not?” “You’re Pappu”, said Banta. “Wow! That’s correct,” said the yuppie, “but how did you guess that?” “No guessing required.” answered the cowboy. “You showed up here even though nobody called you. You want to get paid for an answer I already knew, to a question I never asked. You used millions of dollars worth of equipment trying to show me how much smarter you are than me, and you don’t know a thing about how working people make a living – or about cows. And, for that matter. This is a herd of sheep………. Now give me back my dog.”

Selfy – a new lingo

Taking pictures of one self is cool and something that most of the people do. The advent of facebook, Twitter and Instagram, every one wanted to show their self image in the social platform. This is not new, but the termed that is coined for this is new. It is called “Selfy” “Selfie”. Selfy is taking their own picture and sharing it in social platform. To take a selfie all you need is a camera, which i guess every one has one these days.

Apple Siri – means laugh in tamil

Apple’s Siri is one of the path breaking software inventions. I wanted to try this myself today. I upgraded my iPad 3 to iOS 6. I know I don’t have a American accent. But still I thought I could get some of the popular searches working.

It was real fun and I had my day..

Ok. Back to some story..Siri in Tamil language(chennai India) means laugh. I had my laugh which is justifiable…

I searched for Rajinikanth..so popular here in India..here is the output.

Next I searched for sachin tendulkar. What I got

Ok. I will try my luck again. This time amitabh Bachan ..wow what I got??

I was surprised Siri works well with full sentences.. With apple which has big customer base in India, I guess they need to be more global. Lets wait and watch.
