One of the thing that annoys me often about working on a laptop is the internet proxy settings of different applications. Like many of us these days whenever I move between networks I not only need to set proxy settings for IE and FF, I also need to set proxy settings for other applications that do not seem to be capable of using system proxy.

Now I can come out and say every penny of my campaign contribution towards the new president elect’s run was worth it, and I have been proven wrong in my theory that this country has a long way to go before electing somebody other than a white man as a president.

After this weekend’s commuter rail crash outside of LA, the newspapers are saying the engineer of the train went through a red signal possibly because he was texting on his mobile. At this point the authorities are just starting their investigation to see if that is really true. But number of times I have seen a few of my friends get into light collision and near collision situation because they were texting or checking their oh so important office email while they were driving. I am guilty of doing the same too. Sometimes the work obsessed world we live in takes precedence over our rational thinking; and now as social networks etc. go mobile with big name players jockeying for our round the clock attention, we will probably see more and more of this behavior permeate our daily routine. As a user of all you can eat data plan on my mobile devices this is something that always bothered me.
