Nokia E72 Review
Here’s the Review of Nokia E72, So frequently with upgrades or innovative add-ons to series I have found that not a enormous transaction has been changed about a phone, even if the commence has been fan fared and the price increased. Not so with this new Nokia. They´ve raised the bar quite a few notches in the business phone division and if you´re in the souk for something like this, we couldn´t advise the E72 more highly.
Even though the original E71 has been used for the nuts, bolts and broad looks of the new E72, there´s more changes – and major ones at that – to warrant a good hard second look. The E71 was Nokia´s best ever selling QWERTY-keyboard handset, but as VP of Nokia Ilari Nurmi has been quoted as saying, “Despite the outstanding market performance of the Nokia E71, we still continually look for ways to enhance the device.” And boy have they. Here´s our top ten of the new gadgets, gizmo, go-fasters and gorgeous things on-board:
- New optical navigation key for intuitive scrolling and fast panning
- Desktop like email experience imported from the E75
- Camera upgraded to 5 megapixels (with autofocus and flash)
- Top-loading 3.5 mm audio jack added
- New IM features allowing you to connect to your current IM accounts (Yahoo, Google, Ovi, etc.)
- Faster general performance and internet speeds thanks to upgrades to how the Symbian S60 system runs
- A-GPS and compass with integrated Maps
- Active noise cancellation helping improve general call quality
- Spacebar key-activated torch function
- New version of Quickoffice, delivering Microsoft Office 2007 compatibility (along with access to any subsequent upgrades)
Sound impressive? Wait till you see it in action.
Thinner and lighter than most Blackberries out there, the E72 is also a stunning looker of a business phone. Slim at only 10mm thick, the phone still seems incredibly solid and well built with a very metallic feel and great curves, yet the whole package still weighs only 128 grams.
The 2.4-inch display might not be quite as crisp as some other business phones, lacking slightly in the pixel department, but then we feel if you´re choosing a QWERTY-keyboard-based phone, you´re already more than happy to accept that you´re not going to have all0singing, all-dancing 3.8” touch-screen style. This is a business phone, not an entertainment device. Saying that though, the 3.5mm jack is a fantastic addition, and the E72 also features an FM radio, which most other business phones lack.

Kim Kardashian is as known for her long brunette locks as she is for her enviable curves, but today she hit the streets of N.Y.C. with dramatically lighter hair! The reality star had taken to her Twitter page earlier in the day hinting at the hair color change, writing “Hey everyone I have a drastic new look! I’m gonna twitpic it later today!” And several hours later, a photo did appear as promised with a new note, “I WENT BLONDE!!!! Do u like it?” So help Kim out and let her know what you think of her newly lightened do. UPDATE: Kim took her to her blog later to reveal that the new look is just a wig, but she’s contemplating the change! She writes, “I did a fabulous photo shoot this weekend and they put this hair piece on! I haven’t taken it off since, because I’m really loving the look.”

Obama vs McCain – Whose star is shining bright in the battle for Prez? The 2008 United States presidential election is scheduled to be held on Tuesday, November 4, 2008 and Democrat Party’s nominee Barack Obama who is bidding to be the first non-white US president and the Vietnam war hero John Mccain of the Republicans are at the moment involved in a pitching battle for garnering votes through their respective no holds barred campaigns. Now, the US voters have a decision to make; Barack Obama or John McCain for president. In the light of this, Ganesha analyses the stars of both the candidates.
As per the time shown in Obama’s birth certificate, released recently, his Ascendant is Capricorn. As per his Lagna Chart, on the date of elections Saturn will be in Scorpio Navmansa, which is not a positive sign for the democrat. So, Obama might face unexpected tough fight from his opponent. He will be running Jupiter-Moon-Mercury period, which will be helpful for him.
The election date is also in his favor, which gives him an edge but complacency can affect his chances of becoming the first black US President. The placement of Mars in Obama’s chart looks threatening. He should never ignore his safety and must step up his security around the elections and also during the Jupiter-Mars period that will be effective from March 25, 2009 to March 01, 2010.
McCain is born in Aquarius Ascendant and the Lord of the Ascendant is situated in the Ascendant itself making his chart powerful. As per his Lagna Chart he also has Sun placed in its own sign and also Vargottama which signifies great leadership qualities in him. There are several noticeable planetary combinations but the current planetary configuration does not look favorable for him.
He is currently passing through Mercury-Mercury-Jupiter period. Both Mercury and Jupiter lose strength in D-9 and D-10 charts. Adding to this, transiting Rahu moving over the natal Moon and transiting Saturn moving over the natal Sun may act against his cause. The transiting Jupiter trine natal Sun may help him but the overall situation does not look favorable for winning the White House. Considering all these factors, Barack Obama, looks in better shape to win the White House. Tanmay K.Thakar (The GaneshaSpeaks Team)

The United States presidential election of 2008, scheduled for Tuesday November 4, 2008, will be the 56th consecutive quadrennial United States presidential election and will select the President and the Vice President of the United States.
The Republican Party has chosen John McCain, the senior United States Senator from Arizona as its nominee; the Democratic Party has chosen Barack Obama, the junior United States Senator from Illinois, as its nominee. The Libertarian Party has nominated former Congressman Bob Barr, the Constitution Party has nominated pastor and radio talk show host Chuck Baldwin, and the Green Party has nominated former Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney. Ralph Nader declined to seek the Green Party nomination and is running as an independent candidate.
The 2008 election is particularly notable because it is the first time in U.S. history that two sitting senators will run against each other for president, and because it is the first time an African American is a presidential nominee for a major party, as well as the first time both major candidates were born outside the continental United States—Hawaii for Obama and the Panama Canal Zone for McCain. Since the Republican nominee for vice-president is a woman, the eventual winning ticket is very likely to be historic, as neither an African American nor a female has achieved either office. Also, the Republican presidential candidate, John McCain, would be the oldest first-term president and the Democratic nominee for vice-president, Joe Biden, would be the first Roman Catholic vice president.
The election will coincide with the 2008 Senate elections in thirty-three states, House of Representatives elections in all states, and gubernatorial elections in eleven states, as well as various state referenda and local elections. As in the 2004 presidential election, the allocation of electoral votes to each state will be based partly on the 2000 Census. The president-elect and vice president-elect are scheduled to be inaugurated on January 20, 2009.

Bangalore, Oct 25 (PTI) India’s Chandrayaan-1 has covered 20 per cent of its journey towards Moon as ISRO scientists today performed the second orbit-raising manoeuvre. The lunar spacecraft’s on-board 440 Newton Liquid engine was fired for about 16 minutes from 5.48 am.
With this engine firing, Chandrayaan-1’s apogee (farthest point to earth) has been raised to 74,715 km, while its perigee (closest point to earth) has been raised to 336 km, ISRO spokesperson S Satish said. ISRO chairman G Madhavan Nair termed today’s orbit-raising operation as “record-breaking”.
“So far, Indian-made satellites have reached to a height of only 36,000 km. Today’s firing has taken Chandrayaan-1 to something like 75,000 km.
That’s well beyond what we have reached so far. It was a good event, and done precisely,” Nair, also secretary in the Department of Space, said.
Indicating the complexity of the India’s first unmanned lunar mission, he said when the spacecraft is closer to the earth, its gravitational field is well defined and scientists can shape the trajectory. “When you go further and further, earth’s influence comes down.
Influence of Moon and Sun becomes predominant. Even other planets will have an influence on it,” he said.
Moon lies at a distance of about 3,84,000 km from earth. ISRO officials said Chandrayaan-1 is expected to settle into lunar orbit, 100 km above Moon, on November 8.
All systems on board the spacecraft, launched on October 22, were functioning normally, ISRO said, adding that further orbit-raising manoeuvres to take Chandrayaan-1 to still higher orbits are planned in the next few days.

The big, rotating World that set the benchmark for all subsequent big, rotating Worlds is still around and still rotating.
At 25 tons and 28 feet wide, the Babson World Globe was the world’s largest rotating earth-ball when it was built in 1955. It was covered with porcelain-baked steel tiles that recreated the continents and oceans. They fell off in 1984 and for the next nine years the World looked like a big, rusted ball. But in 1993 it was restored, and has remained in global standard shape ever since.
After the Babson Globe established the record, bigger Earths were built to cast bigger shadows. The Unisphere, symbol of the 1964 New York World’s Fair, was the biggest of all at 120 feet in diameter, but it doesn’t rotate. A 30-foot-wide, rotating globe was built in Tulsa, Oklahoma, in 1957, and still stands in the Oklahoma State Fairgrounds, but it no longer rotates. A septuagenarian in the small town of Apecchio, Pesaro, Italy, built a 33-foot-wide rotating globe in the 1990s, but it’s unclear if it still rotates or if it even still exists — and are you going to go to Apecchio, Pesaro, Italy, to find out? Better to stay right here, because the Italian globe was surpassed by even larger, named Eartha, which has rotated just up the highway from the Babson Globe, in Maine, since 1998.
While you’re visiting the Babson World Globe, drive behind the Coleman Map Building to see this odd marker:
“This monument has been erected by the Gravity Research Foundation. It is to remind students of the blessings forthcoming when a semi-insulator is discovered in order to harness gravity as a free power and reduce airplane accidents.”

CHANDRAYAAN-1: India’s first mission to the Moon
India is all set to reach the moon and that too in its own way, literally! The first Moon mission, an unmanned remote-sensing satellite called Chandrayaan-I , is set for launch. The results of this initiative is which would a long way in realizing the value of our closest celestial body and the emergence of new possibilities. Few facts on Chandrayaan * This spacecraft weighs 1304 kg (590 initial orbit mass and 504 kg dry mass) * The estimated costs for this ambitious project would be INR 3.8 billion * The power generation would be through a canted single-sided solar array to provide required power, 700 W at peak. * During eclipse the spacecraft will be powered by Lithium ion (Li-Ion) batteries. * The spacecraft carries propellant for a mission life of 2 years. The mission aims to carry out high resolution mapping of topographic features in 3D, distribution of minerals and elemental chemical species, and look for water ice in its polar regions. ISRO hopes to launch Chandrayaan-1 from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre near Shriharikota this year.
“THE MOON” with the history of the early solar system etched on it beckons mankind from time immemorial to admire its marvels and discover its secrets. Understanding the moon provides a pathway to unravel the early evolution of the solar system and that of the planet earth.
Through the ages, the Moon, our closest celestial body has aroused curiosity in our mind much more than any other objects in the sky. This led to scientific study of the Moon, driven by human desire and quest for knowledge. This is also reflected in the ancient verse. Exploration of the moon got a boost with the advent of the space age and the decades of sixties and seventies saw a myriad of successful unmanned and manned missions to moon.Following this, a hiatus of about one and a half-decade followed. During this period we refined our knowledge about the origin and evolution of the moon and its place as a link to understand the early history of the Solar System and of the earth.
However, new questions about lunar evolution also emerged and new possibilities of using the moon as a platform for further exploration of the solar system and beyond were formulated. Moon again became the prime target for exploration and a new renaissance of rejuvenated interest dawned. All the major space faring nations of the world started planning missions to explore the moon and also to utilize moon as a potential base for space exploration.
The idea of undertaking an Indian scientific mission to Moon was initially mooted in a meeting of the Indian Academy of Sciences in 1999 that was followed up by discussions in the Astronautical Society of India in 2000. Based on the recommendations made by the learned members of these forums, a National Lunar Mission Task Force was constituted by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO). Leading Indian scientists and technologists participated in the deliberations of the Task Force that provided an assessment on the feasibility of an Indian Mission to the Moon as well as dwelt on the focus of such a mission and its possible configuration.
The task force recommended that given the technical expertise of ISRO it will be extreme worthwhile to plan an Indian Mission to the Moon. It also provided specific inputs such as the primary scientific objectives of such a mission, plausible instruments to meet these objectives, launch and spacecraft technologies that need to be developed and suggested the need for setting up of a Deep Space Network (DSN) station in India for communication with the lunar orbiting spacecraft. The team also provided a provisional budgetary estimate.
The Study Report of the Task Team was discussed in April 2003 by a peer group of about 100 eminent Indian scientists representing various fields of planetary & space sciences, earth sciences, physics, chemistry, astronomy, astrophysics and engineering and communication sciences. After detailed discussions, it was unanimously recommended that India should undertake the Mission to Moon, particularly in view of the renowned international interest on moon with several exciting missions planned for the new millennium. In addition, such a mission will provide the needed thrust to basic science and engineering research in the country including new challenges to ISRO to go beyond the geostationary orbit. Further, such a project will also help bringing in young talents to the arena of fundamental research. The Academia, in particular, the university scientists would also find participation in such a project intellectually rewarding.
Subsequently, Government of India approved ISRO’s proposal for the first Indian Moon Mission, called Chandrayaan-1 in November 2003.
