Iran unveils ‘ambassador of death’ bomber

Image: Karrar drone aircraft

This photo released by the Iranian Defense Ministry, reportedly shows a launch of the Karrar drone aircraft, which Iran says is the country’s first domestically-built, long-range, unmanned bomber aircraft. Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad Sunday called it an “ambassador of death” to Iran’s enemies.

The president championed the country’s military self-sufficiency program and said it will continue “until the enemies of humanity lose hope of ever attacking the Iranian nation.”

The 4-meter-long unmanned plane,
was inaugurated on the national day for the country’s defense industry in a ceremony aired live on state TV.
“We should reach a point when Iran would serve as a defense umbrella for all freedom-loving nations in the face of world aggressors. We don’t want to attack anywhere — Iran will never decide to attack anywhere — but our revolution cannot sit idle in the face of tyranny. We can’t remain indifferent.”

Soon Google Will No Longer Sell The HTC Nexus One

leave a comment »

Apparently, the very last shipments of the popular phone that has somewhat led the way in the Android phone game will go the way of the do do bird as Google makes way for the next generation of Google Android phones and mobile devices. So does this mean we will see a Google HTC Nexus Two? Perhaps…

The good thing is that all costomer service and support will still be offered and available to to all current Nexus One heads.

    Wonderful Web Apps For The Whole Family

    leave a comment »

    Are web apps the future? Does it make sense for all apps to be elsewhere?

    I don’t think so. Purely for security reasons. There are security leaks all the time at large and supposedly secure organizations.

    However, web apps definitely do serve a very important role in getting work done among groups of people in different locations and will almost definitely play a humongous role in our lives in the future (and the present I suppose). May be I just need to learn to trust that security precautions and controls are working effectively (most of the time).

    There are web apps for, well, all kinds of things (think google docs or gmail).  The list of uses is huge.
    Many web apps make use of Flash and Java to run, something to keep in mind if you normally have Flash or Java (or both) disabled in your browser.

    Google Steals Name From Sony Ericsson

    The new bully in the technology world is flexing its muscle
    clipped from androidelectronics.com
    These days if you say “Nexus” the only thing you’re bound to think of is Google’s Nexus One Android Phone by HTC – ESPECIALLY if you’re the tech-loving type. But less than 2 months ago the name Nexus meant something very different to the Android world. That’s because Sony Ericsson announced Nexus , their custom build and UI for Android that was made up of 2 components: Timescape and MediaScape. HTC Sense, MOTO BLUR, Sony Ericsson Nexus… that name had taken its place in Android history. And then Google erased it.
