Google Talk speaks to Orkut

Orkut Logo Google Talk Logo

I logged into my Orkut account as usual, and I noticed something new. Yes!!! Google finally did it! I wanted that feature so badly, Google integrated Orkut and Google Talk this morning, which will now allow you to import all your orkut contacts into the Google Talk messenger, and now chat with all your orkut buddies. This will be a great thing to all those who use the scrapbooks like a chat window, so thats a great news. Google keeps getting better and better. Whenever anyone of your friend will be online on Google Talk, their online status will be visible in the friends list as well, so you now know who all are online. And Google Talk has got some more buttons which is due to the orkut integration. Prominently the scrap button (it opens the scrapbook of the user) and other the view profile button (it opens the user’s profile)
Get Google Talk from here if you don’t have it…

Karthikeyan Confirmed for 2007

Narain Karthikeyan

WilliamsF1 today confirmed the re-appointment of Narain Karthikeyan (IND) as one of the team’s official test drivers for the 2007 season.

Karthikeyan, who joined the squad in 2006, will add a vital element of continuity to the team’s test and development programme as WilliamsF1 forms a new technical alliance with Toyota in 2007. Narain piloted the partnership’s first collaborative efforts on track at Silverstone earlier this month with an interim FW28B carrying the Toyota V8 and the new Williams gearbox and he will continue to spearhead the intensive testing programme into 2007 with the launch of the FW29.

As Formula One moves to a single tyre supplier for next season, Narain’s detailed Bridgestone experience will be invaluable to the team, given his racing experience with the Toyota-powered Jordan and Bridgestone in 2005 and testing with Williams in 2006.

On confirmation of Narain’s re-appointment, WilliamsF1 Team Principal, Frank Williams said, “Next year will be an important year for Williams with the transition to Toyota power and so it is now clear that we will be well positioned with the continuity and benefit of Narain’s experience. His appointment is extremely popular within the team because he is hard working, conscientious and capable in the car. It is also significant that Narain carries with him India’s growing Formula One interests, which is very exciting.”

For his part, Narain responded, “Naturally as a racing driver, my first priority is to compete, but I would far rather test with a leading team than accept a race seat that offered no real potential to learn and develop. Next season is extremely important for Williams with the new partners at Toyota. Williams is a team that exists only to race and I hope that whatever I can contribute to this ultimate objective will be valued by the team.”

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest Review

Poster of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest

I had been waiting for the sequel ever since I came to know about it. The first movie was a pretty entertaining one, and easily managed to enter my elite list of favorite movies. And not without reason, the movie was entertaining, had lots of humour, it had Keira Knightley, but the best part of the movie was Johnny Depp. Jack Sparrow was the main character of course and the whole plot revolves around him.


Hello world!

X-Men: The Last Stand Review

X-Men: The Last Stand Poster

I saw the movie on Saturday evening and I must say I had mixed feelings with the movie. I’m a BIG X-Men fan myself mind you, and I loved the first two movies directed by Bryan Singer. Brett Ratner has made “X-Men: The Last Stand” on a different line than Singer. The special effects were awesome, but somehow


I Touched a F1 Car!!!

Auto Expo 2006 – The Largest Automotive Show in Asia, as described by the event organisers. I put it as window shopping some exotic pieces of machinery.

Me and Sohail were planning about going there for some days and finally I got a holiday on Saturday from office so could take some time out and go there. Sunday was also on cards but we thought it will be better to go on Saturday as Sunday is a holiday for all and a lot of crowd was expected. So woke up a little late as usual, instead woken up from a call from Sohail, he asked me to reach at his place at 1:00pm .
