Want to sync iPod through latest version, download 65.60 MB update !!!

Filed under: Uncategorized — jigarme @ 3:32 am

I dont understand what do they put in an update such that their compressed setup package for update comes for more than 65 MB.. I doubt if people at Apple understand the word “redundancy”.. (I mean they should have removed files which are not updated in this release and should not include them in so called ‘UPDATE’ LOL..)


And if you want to know about a frustrated user like me, even after downloading this whooping 65 MB, it will give you a small n sweet message-box saying ‘Update could not be applied, please retry later!!!’ No saved copy of update (they save it in temp folder, and would delete the package as soon as you dispose the notice message-box!!)

What an amazing software engineering example!!

Stay tuned.. Wave

What will you say, at least give correct examples, Google!!

I remember that day when google released Page Creator with 100 MB of online space (today SkyDrive gives 5 GB for free thats another story!!) but since that day I have few of my important files stored there, I went there to download one of my file and saw a link to create new site and thats how I ended up on following URL..

Just take a look at above page, do you see something conflicting?

Well, I saw on 0.25th millisecond after this page got rendered!! Let me give you a hint, look at the examples that Google has given (http://eve.googlepages.com and http://frogs.googlepages.com).. Both examples are less than 6 characters long.. And they are also sorry about the same thing..

Seems like outsourcing is also done at Google (may be image generation part was outsourced and they did not know validation code [business rules, in formal words].. LOL..)

Or may be Eve is close friend of Sergey or Larry and have got special access!! LOL..

Stay tuned.. Wave

Blog Ranking.. Search engine competition..

Filed under: Uncategorized — jigarme @ 6:06 am

I just checked on live search, I did not find my blogspot blog (which is on Google!) and on Google Search engine, I could find my blogs.msdn.com (which is hosted by Microsoft) blog on second page.

Both of these blogs

Are highly ranked (at least I checked last week, and they are pretty good, coming on first page on keyword search "Jigar Mehta")

What is going on.. As a user, I expect to find information I am looking for, it should not matter where it is hosted, or whose page is it.. Bad thing..

Stay tuned.. Wave
