Track Your Sleep and Share It With Your Friends!


Very Simple, just track your sleep pattern over a period of time, add details of dreams etc. Share it with everyone, see how others sleep etc. A very nice collaborative tool to view own sleep pattern as well as see others!



  • YawnLog tracks the number of hours you sleep per night. It places the information you input on a handy graph so you can  track your sleeping patterns over an extended period of time.
  • YawnLog also allows you to label your dreams with "tags," view your friends sleeping nearby (future implementation), and visualize recorded data in new ways!

The Best Android Phones In India

Well, we saw iPhone coming and changing the mobile phones forever. Google is now following it with Android OS! Couple of years ago, I was really wondering what a search engine giant is doing with Android targeting mobile phones! I really didn’t think Google would become a formidable iPhone rival! But, I was wrong! Android is just amazing! Gem of a software! Of course, it has a lot of catching up to do.

At the moment, fine Android phones are available in India. Some of them are listed below and my views on them.

Samsung Galaxy

This is one of the best value for money Android Phones available in Indian market. There are 2 variants. Both of these phones have all the must have features like WiFi, A-GPS, Capacitive 3.2’’ Touch Screen, Fast CPUs (i7500 with 528MHz and i5700 with a 800MHz), 3G support etc. But, the best of all the price. Samsung i5700 is available at around 12,300 INR (at the time of writing) and the Samsung i7500 at around 15,000 INR (as it has 5MP Camera with 8GB inbuilt memory). This is really good stuff and great value for money if you compare it with phones like HTC Tattoo or HTC Hero.

HTC Tattoo

HTC Tattoo is a great phone too. It has actually every damn feature (in international market! sigh). I came to know that it doesn’t support 3G in India (not sure why) and it is a big turn off! If it supported it, it would have been my recommendation to all of you as it just cost around 15,000 INR. It has 2.8 resistive touch screen, WiFi, A-GPS, WiFi, HTC Touch Sense UI which is really really cool. Well, if you are not very particular about 3G, the just go for it. It has a capable 528MHz CPU to power the rich HTC Touch Sense UI! and yes, its cover can be changed or its skin can be changed as per your requirement! like your old Nokia 3310!


HTC Hero

HTC Hero is a good phone, practically has every feature including 3G, WiFi, 5MP Camera, A-GPS, 3.2 inch Touch Screen, FM Radio and much much more. Really good phone though the 22,000 INR (when I enquired) is a little steep! but HTC UI is really good and comparable to iPhone! Good buy if you are reckless on money :)


There aren’t really many buyers for Android phones in India. It will take some time to get popular here. Yeah. Motorola Droid, Google Nexus One will be released in India soon but it would be priced a little too high! Finger crossed!

The Best Blog Editors Of All Time!

I have been using Blog Editors for a while now. I have used ScribeFire, Windows Live Writer, w.bloggar, Post2blog etc. But, all of them have some or other issues. Finally I have come to a conclusion that it is Microsoft that excels in Blog editor performance! MS Live Writer is really good. If you have a blog, then I highly recommend using Live Writer as your offline Blog editor! You will not regret it!

Live Writer makes it easy to share your photos and videos on almost any blog service—Windows Live, Wordpress, Blogger, LiveJournal, TypePad, and many more.
