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.

Chennai is one of the metro cities in India. It is closest to the Sea (marina beach). The Transport system in Chennai is much better compared to other states. Not many people may agree that, but the transportation is well planned one.
Chennai primarily has the following transportation operated by Govt .
Metropolitan transport Corporation a.k.a MTC
Mass rapid Transit Systems a.k.a MRTS
There are also quite a number of private transports
The below link has extensive details. The best part is you can buy a “Travel As You Please Ticket”
which will cost you Rs.30/- (at the time of writing). You can board any bus at any boarding point.
MTC buses comes with ordinary, deluxe & Air-conditioned bus. Air-conditioned Volvo bus is far better that the other two.
The electric trains connects the North Chennai to South Chennai. The quickest way to reach any destination is by this mode. You may not expect a metro style trains, but these are old fashioned / built electric trains.

If you are not comfortable going on an Auto / Share auto / Mini Van, then this is the right transport for you. You will have your privacy as you will not be sharing your ride. The rates are bit on the higher side when compared to the other transport.
Fast Track (+91-44-28889999)
if you need an exhaustive list, visit the following site
Share Auto / Mini Van
These transport can be used for quick short ride. The rates are very cheap. The only downside is you need to share your ride. More over you may not have the luxury of getting comfortable seating…
One major thing in all these transport is security. You need to be very careful with your belongings and use your common sense while utilizing this transport for late nights travel. Do not carry heavy cash.
But in general the people are very friendly, if the authorities in either of these transport do not help you, the best option is to get
help from fellow passengers. They will guide you and you do not have to pay them. You will get lot of free advices 🙂
If you do not have a internet connection at home or while travelling using laptop. You will have no options right! Not to worry. If you have smart phone with a internet connection (2G, 3G, 4G) then you can use your mobile phone as wireless hotspot. This is called “Mobile Tethering”.
You can connect your laptop, another mobile phone, IPAD or any tablets which has WIFI capability and access internet.
This could be a life saver when you are travelling and wanted to connect to internet from your laptop.
I will show the options available in my Samsung phone (Android OS). This steps may vary based on the handsets that you are using.
Enable internet access in your phone (incase if it is not enabled)
Tap on Wireless and network
Tap mobile AP
See if the green checkbox is checked.
Tap Configure mobile AP
Tap WPA2 PSK for setting password for your WIFI hotspot.
Enter a name in Network SSID and give a password and tap Save.
You are all set. In your laptop or your tablet, check if the wireless hotspot is displayed (Network SSID) connect to it and provide the password.
If you have good data plan, then I guess you can switch over to this instead of broadband connection. But still it may have its own limitations. Check if your service provider is charging for Tethering data.
Lot would have already been discussed about this app / Plugin (Pocket – http://getpocket.com/) formerly called ReadItLater. This is an amazing app that keeps my reading websites across devices.
I have this in my Firefox plugin as an Addon in my laptop. As I visit new website which grabs my attention, I add that in the Pocket reading List. I have installed the android version in my mobile. So on the go what ever website I have added in the reading list before I continue reading it. When I use my IPad I continue with the same reading list.
It is also has a offline viewing feature. Were the website is downloaded for offline viewing when there is no Internet connection.
ubiquitous computing at its best!!
Gone are the days where we use a scanner for scanning a document for softcopy. Things have changed. If you are using a smart phone or tablet, let it be Android or IOS, Camscanner will replace your scanner.
