From Science Fiction to Reality

If you're interested in science fiction or even in just science it self, James May's Big Ideas Program is a splendid watch. And if you've missed the chance of watching it when it aired on BBC2 in 2008, head over to YouTube ASAP and search for James May's Big Ideas. Here are my favorite parts from Episode 2 titled Man Machine when James May meets ASIMO, a life like robot that can walk, run, shake hands and even more intuitively; THINK.

Robotics - Big Dog

This video is quite old but interesting still. The robot cited here is named BigDog but it replicates the size and movement of a Mule. Nonetheless, it shows an amazing ability to manage weight while balancing it self.

Mission Impossible 4

Tom Cruise is back again after starring in not so impressive movies lately. I also was not that impressed by the last Mission Impossible movie. Mission Impossible 4 may seal his demise or it may bring back his fame.

I still remember how glad I was to watch Mission Impossible 2, especially the awesome stunts scenes and the bike chase and the final fight with the villain. Checkout the intense final sequence of MI2 in voiced in URDU :).

MeeGo - To be abandoned by Nokia

Stephen Elop said in an interview that Nokia will not support the MeeGo operating system in future. Reason? he thinks Microsoft Windows Phone is more liked by users than MeeGo. That's why they say love's blind.

But there are still some sensible people in this world whom have filed a petition to save MeeGo. 

For those of you who are still not familiar with MeeGo, its an open source mobile operating system based on Linux, mainly targeted for Smart Phones, Tablets, Vehicle Consoles, TVs, etc. The project was initially conceived by Nokia and Intel to address the shortcoming of Microsoft's solutions for embedded/portable OS. Later on, big names like AMD, Asus, Acer, joined the alliance for supporting this project. I feel that Nokia is completely ignoring the fact that this might be the spark that can reignite its ailing market share.
