Alchemist – TV remote realization

TV remote - alchemist

An useless Saturday, which would be me watching TV instead of learning something new. I sat on the couch, watching TV, with one remote. Only one remote. That’s odd, coz on an average, we all have 3 remotes for just entertainment, right? There is one for the TV, then there is one for the DISHTV […]

The reason for the existence of mosquitoes, one of those unsolved mysteries in universe. All they do is spread disease, disturb our sleep, suck our blood.

Miss the good old Nokia 3310

Nokia-3310

Those were good times! It’s been two months since I started thinking of getting a new mobile and I still have not made up my mind.
