Nokia Purity Pro Wireless Headset

After reading Scott Hanselman’s review of Nokia’s Purity Pro BH940 wireless headphones, I had to get a pair.

I already have the Nokia Lumia 1020 so that was a perfect match.

The Purity Pro app automatically pops up when you connect the headphones via Bluetooth.

I have the headset connected to my Lenovo laptop for GotoMeetings, Skype, and listening to music. Simultaneously, I have the headset connected to my phone for phone calls, text message, and music from Nokia Mix Radio app and TuneIn. Did I mention simultaneously? It can connect two devices at the same time and store up to 8 devices in memory.

Add active noise cancellation to boot, and it’s the complete package. I’m looking forward to taking these on my next flight.

Pin the app to my main screen and you get a nice view of playback time.

First Trip to Nat Bailey

My first trip to Nat Bailey stadium with my daughter was better than anticipated. Promoted as a kid friendly park, it had a complete area for kids to play. Pretty awesome setup if your kid is 2 – 12 years old and needs to exert energy.

Tiny Form Factors

Blogging from my phone while listening to music. Things you can do on a small device. Desktop footprint has decreased dramatically in size as well. My sister and I bought this tiny lil desktop for my dad. The Lenovo M72e.
This tiny desktop does the trick for people who check email and use Office products. Lenovo adds a solid 3 year warranty on parts as well. Solid.

Nazara’s 6th Birthday

Nazara’s 6th birthday party was a skating event at the Sport and Leisure Center in Surrey.  The party was a success as the kids had a lot of fun and it was good to get back on the ice.

My version of Remembrance Day

 

On this day of Remembrance Day, I like to remember my late grandfather, the Late Honourable Lieutenant Bhag Singh Kaila who served 28 years for the Indian Army and retired in 1961.  He fought in World War II between the years 1939 – 1945 for the British Commonwealth.  He served for the Indian Army from Secunderabad (a well known army and air force presence).

 

My goal next year with the help of my dad will be to get more information on all the medals my grandfather achieved during is 28 years in the military.

Thanks “Bapu-Ji”

Thanks for 5 great years Encaptis

I’m starting a new venture next week which I’ll update on my LinkedIn profile.  This post is to thank all the good people at Encaptis (formerly known as Coastal Range Systems).  I was at Encaptis for 5 years.  On my second day at the job, I had to leave for a week due to the arrival of my first born.  Luckily, the company found it in their hearts to keep me around anyways.  Besides producing babies, I was busy with clients like 4Refuel producing code and working on fun .NET stuff like WPF and Silverlight.  This was a great environment for me to learn the complete life cycle of software projects in a high scale environment with various clients across different domains.

Special thanks goes to all the developers at Encaptis.  Definitely a great and very talented group here.  Our infamous leader Maxim Michtchenko is the greatest period.  It was an absolute privilege to learn under his guidance.

I will definitely miss Encaptis and the people that make it a great place to work and succeed.  Just one word for the folks here …. Thank-you.

Make GMail your default email in Chrome

Chrome has become my default choice for a browser in the past 6 months.  I use iGoogle as my home page and GMail for my personal email. In the past, it was a bit of hacker’s fest to get GMail to be your default email provider in Chrome.  Now it is simple as going to chrome://settings/handlers and making GMail the default for all your mailto links.  Make sure you have the latest version of Chrome.  You can check for the latest by going to the about box in Chrome where it will check for the latest updates if they are available.  Btw, checking for updates in the about box is a brilliant idea.
