New Year Resolutions (and Goals) for 2018


One thing that I do religiously every start of the year, is set Resolutions.

बंडखोर


बंडखोर हे असेच येती तृणापरी वेदीवर जळती त्या ज्वलनाने जीर्ण भवाला नव्या युगाचा प्रकाश देती. बंडखोर हे असेच जगती मरण ललाटावरती घेउन ना दिसते ना असते त्यास्तव समिधेपरि हे अर्पित जीवन. पृथ्वीवर येण्यापूर्वी हे सोमसुरेचा पितात पेला दिव्य कैफ तो उरतो आत्मा अर्थ न राहे शरीरतेला. निजकाळाच्या कुशीमधे हे सलती खुपती शुलाप्रमाणे नगर शिवेवर निवास यांना सीमाशासित खलाप्रमाणे. हे अनयाचे…

Flashing my Android devices


It's been quite some time since I played around with my phone's internals. I remember trying out different ROMs and tweaks when I first bought it , a year and a half ago. But for some reason, which I can't remember, I went back and flashed the stock images and even went so far ahead as to un-Root and Lock…

Ubuntu For Android


This is like a dream gadget for me. Android phone with an Ubuntu Add-on that also has a TV interface ? Are you kidding me ? The beauty of this is that not 0nly can you see you media content on a big screen TV or LCS screen, but you can also run the Android applications in an Ubuntu environment.…
