the definitive way of listening to music

for all the uninformed ppl out there, read on for the best music system possible …

there is an mp3 player (portable) out there that absolutely kicks ass.

yeah, i am talking abt the one and only iPod (TM)

made by apple (the same guys that made the iMac) its the most amazing mp3 player i’ve ever seen (course ive seen very few but who cares). it looks stunning, with a nice shiny magnesium (i assume magnesium cause it shines and reflects very well, cud be aluminium) rear and a white front (shudve expressed that in a nicer way). the controls are awesome, really really easy to use. anyway i put a GB of songs onto it and looking for music is easy, it takes a few seconds to find one song out of a thousand. course with a harddisk on it you can take your whole music collection with you.

iTunes, the software that is supplied with it is nice. atleast it does what it’s supposed to do and much more. its easy to sync with the ipod, and it keeps all your mp3’s and stuff updated. also the ipod tracks what you play and kinda rates it automatically, so not only can you make your own playlists you can also listen to the top 25 songs that u’ve rated, and / or the most played songs, etc. it connects via only USB 2.0 or firewire.

but that’s not all you need for the best music system, you need some speakers / headphones to play it with

enter bose – Better [something] [something] with Engineering (I think)

i’d gone to CP once, there at the bose showroom i’d tried on the bose headphones. now these aren’t ordinary headphones, they are really good headphones. they are noise cancelling so you wont hear all the excess envoirnmental noise that’s there, and they are really light. the sound quality is superb, its the best ive heard, much much better than all the fancy computer speakers and crap like that.

so if u’ve got money to spare and are lookign for a really cool music system then you should get

an iPod + bose headphones

that’d probably cost 10-20K + 20K

but then trust me its probably worth it

PS – there are bose headphones available for 9K also …

home, the kingdom of heaven

long time no blog.

mostly due to laziness and …

so today decided to finally write some stuff

saw “Kingdom of Heaven”, nice film, a film which probably depicts history more accurately than others i’ve seen. atleast its not pro-american bullshit in which the english speaking white man conquers all and saves the day and the rest of the world is thankful / angry at him for doing so.

after that i went home, actually this post is from home, where net is kinda slow. neway MTNL the service provider is improving, speeds aint that bad and the conn holds.

life is real good as of now. atleast food is good, and i aint got nething to be doing. atleast some part of the year one should have absolutely noithing to do. its like calvin’s dad when he says that the miserable vacation they take each year makes living in the house like a godsend 😀

since i got nothing to do, i spend a while surfing channels on the good old idiot box. there seems to be nothing good on anyway, thanks to the cable operator.

apparently in my area you can either see star sports or ESPN, but only one cause that guy shows only one channel. so during the champion’s league final it was some snooker on star world and then during the F1 race it was some other arbitrary sport on ESPN. that’s the sort of stuff that is really infuriating. the movies on hbo and star are ok tho, most of the time. still i wish they’d show something better. also i wish that the ads wud improve. the only decent ad that ive seen is the bloody reebok shoe ad. almost all the other ad’s are full of some arbid garbage, like this radio mirchi ad, wherein some kid breaks a cookie jar, and his mom comes in all angry and stuff, and then she starts dancing for no apparent reason. i mean come on ppl. that is the height of ignorance.

i found all the calvin and hobbes books. read them again and again and again. bill patterson is a genius. calvin and hobbes is awesome philosophy. its awesome comic stuff.

rest of the new stuff in the next post, which will be pretty soon i guess …
