I got this through an email forwarded to me.
Just take a look at the image below and count the number of persons you see on the image. Wait for a few seconds and the image will realign. Try counting the number of persons again. Was it 12 or 13?
12 or 13
I have not yet figured this out yet, but if you have found it already, please post it a comment.

Ever since I bought an iPod, back in 2001, I became an Apple fan and I bought the iPhone on the launch date.

I have been playing with lot of Apps on my iPhone. While some of them are so cool, there are Apps that I delete after a day’s use.
There are thousands of Apps available in the AppStore and it becomes too hard to get the best of the Apps.

I always thought I should write simple blog posts, just for introducing people to the Apps that I like the most.
Recently I started a website called Apps 2 Try, just for that purpose.

When you get a chance, take a look at the site and be sure to let me know your feedback.
Thank you.

Yesterday, an US Airways flight crash landed on the Hudson River.
Plane Crash on Hudson
This picture was taken by one of the persons who went to rescue them. He used his iPhone to take this picture.

You could hardly imagine, how terrible it would have been when the weather was 20 degree farenheit outside and the water was almost icy.

Fortunately all the passengers and the crew were safely rescued. It is a great work from the Pilots and also the rescue team. Great Work People!

Recently one of my colleagues was talking about this new feature in GMail.
Apparently it existed since October 2008, but I only heard about it yesterday.

What it does?
It prevents you from sending an email when you are drunk, there by helping you stop sending email that you would regret later.


Yes, if you enable this feature, whenever you send email on late hours, GMail would ask you to solve a math question.
no more emails when drunk
If you do not answer it right, your email will not be sent and will just end up in the Drafts section.

What is on your wishlist? what do you want your GMail to do?

I recently read this Zen Story.

During a momentous battle, a Japanese general decided to attack even though his army was greatly outnumbered. He was confident they would win,but his men were filled with doubt.

On the way to the battle, they stopped at a religious shrine. After praying with the men, the general took out a coin and said, “I shall now toss this coin. If it is heads, we shall win. If tails, we shall lose. Destiny will now reveal itself.” He threw the coin into the air and all watched intently as it landed.
It was heads.
The soldiers were so overjoyed and filled with confidence that they vigorously attacked the enemy and were victorious. After the battle, a lieutenant remarked to the general, “No one can change destiny.”
“Quite right,” the general replied as he showed the lieutenant the coin, which had heads on both sides.

What is your reaction to this story? Pour in your thoughts!

After what seems to be a long and cold winter season, we only started getting warmer this week.

Yesterday was one of those beautiful days with the temperature around 74* F.
I was driving back to home from work and it was around 5 O clock in the evening.
The road was clear and there is no traffic at all. I kept changing the songs [my iPhone is connected to the car stereo] till it picked one of my favorite songs randomly. It was a smooth ride till I see some flashing lights in the back of my car.

Cop CarIn the USA, it means a police car is behind you and you need to stop and pull over. It means you did some traffic offense and the cop is going to issue a ticket to you.
I pulled over to the side and the cop came around to my side window.
I handed him over my license, registration and the insurance documents.
He : “Do you know why I pulled you over, sir ?”
Me : “I don’t know.”
He : “You were going at 75 miles speed”
Actually it might be true that I was going fast, but I do not know if it is that much.
I told him the truth.
Me : “I don’t know if I was speeding. I think I did not realize how fast I was going.”

Cop Car 2He went back to his car with my documents and I was sitting there wondering what would happen.
If he gives me a speeding ticket, then it would cost me a couple of hundred dollars in fine. It will also add “points” to my driving history which would cause my car insurance to go higher too. That will cost me, close to a thousand dollars over the course of next three years. If I go to the court, the prosecutor might reduce the offense to something lower and leave me with just a fine but no “points”, but that means I have to lose some hours from work to go the court. So, what can I do now?

The cop came back after seeing all my driving history.
He : “I saw that you have no points in your license right now.”
I was wondering to myself “So, you are going to add some points now?”
He : “Since you did not lie to me, I am going to let you go this time without a speeding ticket. I will only give a ticket for ‘Obstruction of view in the windshield’. This one does not carry any points but you will have to pay the appropriate fine.”
and then he started talking about all the legal options I have and the court date if I want to challenge this etc and everything was going above my head.
Me : “Thank you, Officer”.

and oh man…did I tell you “Yesterday was a beautiful day” ?

The Right Brain / Left Brain Test

The image looks different for each person that sees it. I was watching it with my wife and we saw different things at the same time.
I still do not know how it works. If you know, please share your views.
