Respecting the new way’s of communication

Few like to ring my mobile...
Few like to be ringed back..
Few love dropping by my home...
Few like to drop me a mail...
More like to ping me in Gtalk...
Few like to SMS me...
Few love Orkut scraps...
Few live in FB walls....
Few like spams ..twitter....
More than few like to buzzzz......
I like telepathy!!!!!!!!!

Bottom line, I'm not omni-net-present. No one can be. Deleting account is more pain than not replying..

My pick - Gmail, Gtalk, Buzz & my mobile. Simple I don't want to maintain hell lot of account. Blog is public and so doesn't count.

Will Google & Chrome succeed what SUN & JAVA couldn’t?

First thing every JAVA book praises is it's cross-platform compatibility. True JAVA code can be developed & build and run in any platform JVM supports. The only problem is the user experience of JAVA application varies in Windows to Unix.(excluding web apps) Applications looks & works different in Windows but looks awkward in Linux. The real use of JAVA portability is to develop in windows and deploy on Unix server. There were few JAVA desktop application but performed badly and never drew user attention.

Now to Google, they choose HTML for cross-platform cross-browser applications. Will they succeed or they'll follow the way as JAVA? Google talk plugin doesn't work on all platform, definitely not on Linux yet. So, what's the real purpose of Chrome OS which is based on browser - HTML & JS? An device to access Google services and as an browser? If that's the case why would people buy Chrome net-books instead of iPad?

Chrome browser is definitely better than Firefox or IE but can it do things more than an what an normal browser does? Chrome OS & net-books can be of much useful to non-IT businesses but for the masses it can't be sufficient like iPad.

OS we know hasn't evolved much other than look & feel. We may have to wait to see how OS gets transformed and how we prefer to use. Will we ever accept give full control of our data and what application we use to Google or Apple or MS?

Advantage of Chrome is it's browser & security. Dis-advantage of Chrome OS is also it's browser. I could buy Apple or Ubuntu laptop and can still enjoy the benefits of Chrome.

Questions or Answers?

Questions we ask... Answers we give... which of these express our thoughts more?

Answer might vary depending on the context but it's certainly impossible to ask questions without knowing anything upfront or without any intentions. But, what is asked as question does matters!!

So, to better understand a person is it wise to let them ask questions? On the other hand, by not asking questions we can hide our thoughts!!

Questions matters than the answer itself!?
