Change Wikipedia’s font by Ubuki Chrome extension #FAIL !

Chrome Webstire is on a roll.So many new apps,extensions being launched every then and now,and so many useless.Like some are just redirecting to a web page while some as discussed below just change a font and that too on a single website.#fail.This extension ‘Ubuki’

Why is it a fail ?

  • A person ‘A’,sitting on his windoze and never used ubuntu,when see’s this extension in the ‘store,might think that it’s difficult to change the default font in ubuntu.so chances of his using an open source OS reduces further more.Or he might think ubuntu users need an extension just to change a font !
  • Secondly,the extension just useless.Want to change font ? Go to Options » Advanced » Font settings  and change the font.
  • A whole extension just to change the font on one website ? #whatanonsense

Acer’s 4.8 incher ‘phoneblet’

Well Acer‘s brought the phonebelt,that is mixture of phone and a tablet.It’s being powered by 1GHz Snapdragon processor.Acer confirmed that this hybrid which is 100% phone + 100% tablet would come to US in April and would be running  Froyo or Honeycomb.The display is pretty huge (4.8 inch) and boats of its unique 1024 x 480-resolution, 21:9 aspect ratio display ,but then don’t complain cause it’s a Phonebelt ! (We’ve got another thing for 2011,that other manufacturers would be busy copying  throughout the year  *sigh* )

Let’s wish Acer luck,and please wish me too so that I can  have my own Android that I desperately WANT.

Android 3.0 Honeycomb teaser video.Built Entirely For Tablet concept.

We’ve been hearing for months that Android 2.x isn’t the OS made  for tablets.And now Google shows off a video with the latest flavor of Android the Honeycomb,which is designed ‘particularly for tablets’.Completely redesigned UX  and lot more,if it is supported by good quality apps,then the  tablet market is set for a huge shakeup.

Honeycomb is the next version of the Android platform, designed from the ground up for devices with larger screen sizes, particularly tablets. We’ve spent a lot of time refining the user experience in Honeycomb, and we’ve developed a brand new, truly virtual and holographic user interface. Many of Android’s existing features will really shine on Honeycomb: refined multi-tasking, elegant notifications, access to over 100,000 apps on Android Market, home screen customization with a new 3D experience and redesigned widgets that are richer and more interactive. We’ve also made some powerful upgrades to the web browser, including tabbed browsing, form auto-fill, syncing with your Google Chrome bookmarks, and incognito mode for private browsing.

Honeycomb also features the latest Google Mobile innovations including Google Maps 5 with 3D interactions and offline reliability, access to over 3 million Google eBooks, and Google Talk, which now allows you to video and voice chat with any other Google Talk enabled device (PC, tablet, etc).

Here’s the video.

Though a question remains in my mind : Will Honeycomb come to phones ?
