FireFox all set to make a record

FireFox 3 is released and it will create the most downloaded software in 24 hours time. The original estimate was around 5 million copies. But the actual downloads exceeded the expectation and crossed that level well before 24 hours. Due to heavy download, Mozilla servers were down intially. I checked the counter now and its already crossed 7 million and the downloads were clocking at more than 7k per minute. Hope the total download in 24 hours will be around 10 millions.

Congrats Firefox team.

Simple, but not simpler

I often use the Albert Einstein's quote, "Simple, but not simpler". I think I should rethink that.

Today there was some crap movie in some channel. The hero will be flying a B2 bomber and there will be few F-14s behind his tail. He will switch to stealth mode and fly away. My daughter came from outside running towards me. I thought I'll make the scene simple for her. I said, "See that biiiiiiig aeroplane? That is going so fast and the small ones can't even see". She turned to the screen, saw the bomber flying for few seconds and exclaimed "kaka!" (crow)

Hmmm, I should think simpler :-)

Pixar - Wall E

I always love Pixar movies - not for Steve, but for the amount of detailed attention they pour into every little stuff. Now the upcoming Wall E is something special for the following reasons:

  • First movie after Disney "acquired" Pixar

  • Its released after the biggest flop of Pixar (Cars)

  • This will be the first Pixar movie where a real human face is shown!

  • The one liner of story is too good

  • As per the rumours, there are NO dialogs in the movie. Its all the beeps and light flashs of the robots!!!

Pixar took too much efforts to make us visualize a fish as a character in the Finding Nemo (I'm not going into details here, in short - we can't easily visualize something as a character unless it resembles humans in most of ways. Think of the characters of Shark Tale, they are more of humans than of fishes) I bet they have gone even beyond that to create a movie without dialogs. Waiting for the release ...
