Most irritating Ads

Here is a list according to me are the most irritating ads being aired in Indian tele. A great Ad should be funny or creative making you remember the product. But sometimes some boring to watch ads played again and again during prime time will make us remember the product.

Here goes the worst five ads being aired

5. Happydent
4. Harpik challanges
3. Kurkure featuring Juhi Chawla
2. Castrol Lubes featuring Zahir Khan
1. Tata Indicom true paid ad featuring Kajol & Ajay

Well the list goes on

Wi-Fi in Mountain View

What do u think would be the best community outreach program from any company ? Well Google is planning to provide free Wi Fi internet connection to an entire city of mountain view where google is headquartered. You can check there official report here. Impressive Isn't it. How I hope Google was head quartered here at bangalore and we would be enjoying free wireless internet connection in the city.

As a matter of fact it does'nt cost much for a big multinational company to provide Wi - Fi connection and is inexpensive as well. All it requires is a right attitude and of course some serious support from government. It'll be nice to call our city "Wi Fi Enabled".

Hmmmm, Well on second thougts lets assume that, some IT company is willing to make Bangalore a Wi Fi Hub, Does we really deserve it when there are many serious issues to be addressed such as basic infrastructural development. May be we could use the same money to have a stronger and better roads. And I strongly feel that the true importance and significance is lost when things are given free of cost. People start misusing the benifit. What do u say ???

France Elevates its Security Level

Recently I came across the following and is very funny

As many are aware, the French government recently announced a raise in its terror alert level from "Run" to "Hide". The normal level is "General Arrogance", and the only two higher levels in France are "Surrender" and "Collaborate". The rise was precipitated by a recent fire that destroyed France's white flag factory, effectively paralysing the country's military capability.

It's not only the French that are on a heightened level of alert:Italy has increased the alert level from "Shout loudly and excitedly" to "Elaborate military posturing". Two more levels remain, "Ineffective combat operations" and "Change sides".

The Germans also increased their alert state from "Disdain" to "Dress in uniform and sing marching songs". They have two higher levels: "Invade a neighbour" and "Lose".

Seeing this reaction in continental Europe the Americans have gone from "Isolationism" to "Find another oil-rich nation for regime change". Their remaining higher alert states are "Attack random countries (ideally those without any credible military)" and "Beg the British for help".

The British are also feeling the pinch in relation to recent bombings and have raised their security level from "Miffed" to "Peeved". Soon though, security levels may be raised yet again to "Irritated" or even "A Bit Cross". Londoners have not been "A Bit Cross" since the Blitz in 1940 when tea supplies all but ran out. Terrorists have been re-categorized from "Tiresome" to "Bloody Nuisance". The last time the British issued a "Bloody Nuisance" warning level was during the Great Fire of 1666.
