Geeks are impatient people. When they go to the authority or their administration for a simple task which requires heap of paperwork to get done, they get irritated. During theses kind of circumstances geeks would most probably say ‘just leave it’ and find another source for their task to bypass the paperwork. Time is not only money but also breath of their life.

Geeks believe that one should not expect help from others but depend on his own self. If you are stuck in some problem due to your own foolishness, don’t expect any sympathy from a geek who will rather indicate it to you.

Facebook is currently testing out a new feature which would allow you to keep a closer look on what your loved ones are up to. This at the moment hasn’t been made public yet, however experiments are being carried out with a certain number of people to check on how the response w0uld be.
What this feature does is that it lets you subscribe to other people’s profiles, so the minute they do anything you will receive a notification on the top left of your homepage showing what that particular person has done. This could be a status change, a change of profile picture, writing on someone’s wall etc. This notification would also be sent on your mobile device if you have subscribed the mobile services for Facebook. What is uncertain is whether you can use this feature for people who aren’t added as your friend yet. If this is allowed then this would classify you as a stalker.

For ages, blind people have been devoid of the ability to travel in a vehicle by themselves. Going anywhere would mean a guide dog, dependency on a relative or simply not go at all. Well now, things have started to change and there is eventually hope for a blind person. Virginia Tech University in association with the National Federation for the Blind have come up with a revolutionary vehicle meant specially to give blind people the freedom to drive around.
This idea has just taken shape in the form of a debut prototype which would be released in 2011. The full version may take more than a year to be brought out for public use. The vehicle is equipped with non-visual interfaces, which means that specially designed devices will be transmitting information regarding the surrounding to the blind person behind the wheels.
This concept was initially given out by Virginia Tech’s students who participated in the DARPA GRAND CHALLENGE of 2007 where they gave an idea of a driverless vehicle.
