iCards

I used to love Apple iCards. They were simple, elegant and had a range to choose from with no links to be clicked by the recipient to check out the card.

Apple has scrapped this service dealt with in this Macworld post titled ” A Farewell to iCards” (with bleeps in the video about Snow Leopard 🙂 )

So, I went looking for something similar to what I like. Ended up getting here after a lot of searching… 4icards. It is from Iran. Has a similar set of cards that Apple had with some local flavoured ones.

Well, when you can’t have the best, settle for the next in line?  🙂 Really wish Apple brings iCards back instead of this mobileMe thingie. Pretty bugging for a person who does not have an iPhone and would probably never be able to use the services offered even if I did have one!

SI Units :)

Gee..I had forgotten this even existed. Long time since I used this; and I was faced with giving a few with symbols as answers to a test I took up recently for the post of an editor!! Don’t ask me the connection….still.

Was glad I could answer some of them at least 😀 Not proud that I got one wrong, though I did know I was wrong when I wrote the answer. To those curious…it was Luminous intensity that I got stuck with.

Just thought how one should never forget what one has been learnt; be it long time back!!

On the subject of units….came across a new one : a unit of knowledge 🙂 As Google puts it : a Knol.

Knol is in its beta version. You could check out the following : http://knol.google.com/k/knol

It is Google’s Wikipedia version I suppose. Just thought would share this one. Take a break from the usual monotony of what I usually write here. Hope this break lasts for ever and ever 😉
