Loaded the music system to my car

I, Maruthu, and Muthu went to few shops in Koramangala, checked few music players and decided to load the below mentioned configuration into my car.
The audio guy explained few fundas to us.
The audible range for human being is 20Hz – 20000Hz. I hope you guys remember that Hz (pronounced as “Hertz”) is the unit of frequency.

When you play the music, the sounds can be separated into 3 different categories:
Low Frequency (20 Hz – 300 Hz), So called Bass,
Mid Frequency (300Hz – 2000Hz), For Vocal, and
High Frequency (2000Hz – 20000Hz).

Low frequency is well played by the instrument called “Woofer”,
Mid Frequency is well played by the instrument called “Speaker”, A normal round speaker without any additional attachments.
High Frequency is well played by the instrument called “Tweeter”.

The Audio guy said that nowadays there are instruments which have both the speakers and tweeters together, but the effect will not be that great as you hear with the separate components. So, He suggested the following configuration: 4 speakers (Mid Frequency), 1 Amplifier-1 Woofer (Low Frequency) and 2 Tweeters.
I went with Pioneer music system & speakers with Sony Amplifiers.

Google Adsense makes sense…

     It is really amazing and it really gives the perfect context sensitive search.
Through the adsense, I came to know about , a really cool and simple web based RSS Feed reader.
In my opinion it would say it is much better than the google reader.
The reason is:
Google reader shows one item at a time, you can’t see all the feeds and can’t easily move across the feeds.
On the other hand allows you to view all the feeds at a time, see which are all the new items in the feeds and easily move across the feeds.
On usability point of view, I like the 3-panel division and the navigability.
On the technology point of view, it uses the cool AJAX.

Here is how I came to know about the
I clicked on my blog New way to read the web - RSS/ATOM feeds
Google adsense displayed top four picks in context with the blog article.
I thought of exploring about a cool web based RSS feed reader (bored with the standalone application in my PC, cannot access it from anywhere), so clicked on “RSS Newsfeeds” link in the google adsense links.
It gave me the results, which includes a link about alesti.
Clicked on the link and amazed to see that really cool and simple web based RSS Feed reader.

5 IITians form Political Party

5 IITians form political party: Good News to Hear (
     I was thinking a lot about this, I mean the Educated and Dynamic People in Politics. I don’t mind joining them (.
I saw the news this morning in the Times of India newspaper. I felt happy to read that article. Here is that article. “Courtesy: Times Of India

Article By Pooja Virendra Kumar/TNN
Bangalore: Seems like Mani Rathnam’s Yuva(Hindi) / Ayutha Yezhuthu (Tamil)  is getting off the reels. Five IITians(image placeholder), all in their 20s, have decided to take up mainstream politics. The youths, based in Jodhpur, will be in the city to campaign for their national party, “Paritrana’’, which was launched in Jodhpur on Friday. “Giving up handsome pay packages, comfort of family and support of friends wasn’t that easy,’’ says Tanmay Rajpurohit, the national president of the party and B Tech in aerospace from IIT Bombay followed by an MS from GeorgiaTech and double masters in arts. “But my inner voice told me that I should invest my efforts in my country rather than making my pockets heavier,’’ said Ajit Ashwalayan Shukla, vice president of the party. “People think we are crazy so much so that our families have also failed to understand our motto, but we won’t give up,’’ he added. The core team of “Paritrana’’ comprises Rajpurohit, Shukla, Amit Beesen, also the vice president and a B Tech (Mechanical) from IIT Bombay and a LLB graduate, Chandrashekhar (national treasurer), B Tech (computer science) from IIT Kanpur, Bharat Sundaram, the PRO of the party and B Tech from IIT Kanpur and PhD in electronics from Melbourne. “Paritrana means complete relief from the various causes of distress, and that is what we want to do for our people,’’ added Chandrashekhar. Low funds have not discouraged them in their efforts of holding door-to-door campaigns in Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and parts of Maharashtra. “We strongly feel that the politicians of today are no longer the voice of the common man but instead they voice their own personal agendas through which they can fetch maximum votes,’’ said Shukla. “We are not here for the power game. We are here to deal with the grassroots issues of each and every small village that we come across,’’ added Shukla. The zeal and burning desire of the five youngsters sounds sincere. “I believe that we are just five ordinary boys from the middle class family with no godfathers in politics but have dared to come forward and fight for our rights,’’ said Chandrashekhar. “And we will succeed in it,’’ he added. After the launch of the party at the Suchana Kendra in Jodhpur, the party members, as a part of their promotional campaign will tour Jodhpur, Udaipur, Ahmedabad, Mumbai, Pune, Bangalore and Chennai.
