Dead Alien Spotted In Siberia

Do you guys believe in aliens??...Here's a clip which will blow your minds off.....found it on net thanks to a friend. Not sure whether it is a hoax, it clearly shows an alien lying on the bed of snow with its mouth slightly open from the side. Dozens of UFO's are spotted in the snowy regions of Russia every year. So this could have come from one of the spaceships and might have died there for some reasons or it could even be a skillfully crafted body of an alien and the video could be fake too...So check out the clip and and you yourself decide whether you want to believe in it or not!....:)

KKR Fans in for a big surprise!

Kolkata Knight Riders fans are in for a big surprise as their favourite player will be back in action. This season of IPL, the Indian legend Saurav Ganguly was not selected to play for KKR. Being the pride of Kolkata, it was very depressing for his fans to see him not play for his team. Several revolts took place against Sharukh Khan for not including him in the team. Ganguly's fans burnt posters of Sharukh, made processions against KKR. Still he was not allowed in KKR team and was not able to play in Indian Premier League(IPL)-4. Now sources are saying that Ganguly will still be able to perform in IPL-4 as Sri Lankan players may have to drop out of the team as the have to go back to their country for national duties. There's still hope that Ganguly may get to play in place of Jayawardhane for the Kochi Tuskers team. This is the chance for him to prove SRK's KKR team wrong and prove the world that he is still one of the best..

Hacked Video On Times Square!

This is an amazing clip which I found on the net and it seemed impressive to me. So I thought of uploading it on my blog!..This is what some Hackers can do!..Check this out...:)

The viral video titled "How to hack video screens on Times square":
"The way it works is pretty simple: plug in my transmitter into the iphone 4 and play back any video clip. You can play it through the ipod features or through the camera roll. The transmitter instantly sends the video signal to the video repeater and the video repeater over-rides any video screen that it's being held next to. it doesn't matter what shape or size the hacked screen is because the hack video will simply keep its correct dimensions and the rest of the hacked space will stay black.
I chose times square for my demo because it has lots of video screens to try it on. It is also one of the most monitored and secured areas in New York city and that made it that much more fun."

You can see in the video that the repeater is pretty powerful but the signal is not very stable yet. The hacker is working on that. And a new video will be posted soon explaining How he made this prototype.

Apple's Upcoming Wonder! The I Phone 7

Can Apple really create such a big masterpiece?
That's the biggest question to Apple after their success in almost every technological front. 


After the grand success with I-Phone 3, it has launched a new model the I Phone 4.
The I-Phone 3 and 3Gs which was a later and improved version of its previous phones 1 and 2, had lot more features then the previous ones like its camera quality improved and the model became slimmer and sharper. 

Then there came the I-Phone 4 with better camera quality and resolution and sharp masculine edges.

But the task that Apple took in their hand a marvel in the techno world! It is coming up with a new model (the so called I Phone 7) which will be made on glass.

Everything inside just a simple slab of glass. Such a sophisticated piece of work that will keep people amazed throughout the whole decade. But will Apple will really stand out through the challenge? You will have to wait for that!

The Festival Of Colors: Holi

Holi, also known as the festival of colors celebrated by the Hindus on the spring season. On this occasion people greet each other with colorful powders (or gulals) and smear it into each other's face or body. But nowadays the occasion is more played with water based colors. It is primarily observed in India, Nepal, Sri Lanka, and countries with large Indic diaspora populations, such as Suriname, Malaysia, Guyana, South Africa, Trinidad, United Kingdom, United States, Mauritius, and Fiji. 

According to Indian mythology, the main day, Holi, also known as Dhuli Vandana in Sanskrit, also Dhulheti, Dhulandi or Dhulendi, is celebrated by people throwing coloured powder and coloured water at each other. Bonfires are lit the on the eve of the festival, also known as Holika Dahan (burning of Holika) or Chhoti Holi (little Holi). The bonfires are lit in memory of the miraculous escape that young Prahlad accomplished when Demoness Holika, sister of Hiranyakashipu, carried him into the fire. Holika was burnt but Prahlad, a staunch devotee of god Vishnu, escaped without any injuries due to his unshakable devotion.

Holi is celebrated at the end of the winter season on the last full moon day of the lunar month Phalguna (February/March), (Phalgun Purnima), which usually falls in the later part of February or March.
