Test shot for the 50mm f/1.8 AF Nikkor lens that I borrowed from Sid. More than the actual resolution of the lens (as measured in MTF tests), the thin DoF makes it look really really sharp.

Countdown to the end of the hack day. Check out the screen in the middle made to look like a giant laptop.
Is it a UFO? Methinks it's an ISO (Identified Suspended Object). Chandelier at Taj Residency. If you look at the thumbnail, you could also convince your eyes that this is a bowl sunk into the floor.

A hacker presenting is hack. This one was pretty wonky. He said something like, "I really like Yahoo! Search Assist but I use Google to search. So, I made Yahoo! suggestions appear under Google's search box."
I think this says a lot about the current scenario with Google and its fanbois. I've done enough of Google fanboi bashing on my journal to actually have effectively been told to shut up by an anonymous coward! It's like, "Dude! How dare you speak ill of Google?"
For the presenter of this hack, well, I'd say it's good that he's managed to port Yahoo! Search Assist to Google but how about trying to get the superior fulfillment that you get from Yahoo! Search on to Google?

This guy won the best hack award -- a Nintendo Wii. He'd written a Maps doodle hack that allowed people to draw over maps for giving driving instructions to their friends and planning how to intercept someone en-route :p
