      The phone of the Decade.

      Nokia N 95 The phone which created history, many records & many stories. If I say that this phone is the "phone of the decade" than there should not be surprise. People around the world was very crazy to have this phone as soon as it enter into the market. It seems like a pride for most of the business class & people who are crazy for having a luxurious phone in their pocket. I was also one of them. It's quite expensive phone, but due to it's wonderful features made me crazy. I had my contract of 18 months with carphonewarehouse. I was offered with Good service & deal from carephonewarehouse & I did not wait even for a single moment & grabed that. Very happy after having deal. I got phone with 1200 minutes in £50 per month rental with £7.50 insurance per month. Feature:- The first feature wich made my decision was that 5 mega pixal Camera. I love picture shooting even though it's not easy to carry on a camera everywhere you go, But this Nokia N95 done this job with ease. Now I do not need to carry on any camera to capture rare moments of life. Though nokia N95 have a lot of good feature & even some one can get it very easily with store sites, so here I don't think it's important to discuss in detail about them, but I will appreciate the 5MP camera, it's safe, looks, music player, sounds & the internet browsing. It's wide screen is realy sexy, lovely & owesome. You can view video in fantastic quality. It's key pad is not that much impresive one, it should be improved. Onw more thing it needs is the touch screen. It should be in touch screen, so people who have some confusion between Nokia N95 & O2 XDA can easily move to Nokia N 95. Nokia just needed to launch it in two format i.e. with touch screen & without touch screen. Over all Nokia N 95 is the most popular phone so far in the market till the date iphone 3 LG launched in the market. But I still prefer Nokia N 95 over iphone due to it's 5MP camera.

        Disadvantages

        Good for salaried person for day to day services

        Banking is a part of our daily life. Life is easier with good banking. There are too many banks these days in the market. Some of them are international banks, rest are national or local banks. Aa usual I have an experience with some of the good banks. Banks like HSBC, Barclays, Lloyds TSB & ICICI Bank UK LTD. All banks are good in some part & bitter in few areas. Now a days my bank is Lloyds TSB, it's good bank for simple daily routine activities like paying your bills, setting up direct debits, depositing your salary & income. Lloyds TSB is providing services to business & individuals, giving loan, mortgages, credit cards, savings, insurance etc. It providing many current account services like Classic Account, Classic Account with Vantage, Classic Plus. I have a classic account with lloyds TSB. It provides pin and chip VISA Debit card with account. Visa is accepted all over world with most of the stores & banks & also in cash points. I am using it hassle free for last many years. I am getting my salary in check & I use to pay in my account by visiting my nearest bank with ease, but it taking 4-5 working days to clear the check as like in other banks. If you looking for overdraft or advance than better to go barclays or HSBC rather wasting your time with other banks, because it's quite difficult to get from other banks due to there limitness. And the same thing is with Lloyds TSB. It realy need to be improved particularly in this part to stand with other banks. But it have small small branches all over uk covering a huge part, even in a small street you can find lloyds TSB bank near to you. Over all services of lloyds TSB are satisfactory.

          If you looking for Economic fares than try indian Airlines Services

          I love travelling a lot. I use to travel frequently all over the world. Half of them to India & subcontinet. I have traveling experience with most of the airlines. I do traveled using Indian Airlines many times. It's not posh kind of airline services but very economic in comparison to others. The services are very ordinary. Air Hostess are not attractive as in Jet Airlines or others & not too caring as well. They just fulfilling duties somehow. I am not against these but most of them are like that. Yes Food served in board is of good quality, specially vegetarian food. I like that, but there is very limited entertainment in after boarding. Yes regarding flight landing & flying waiting time is always better with indian Airlines due to it's priority with most of the airports in india. Good thing regarding them is their domestic services. They are really well ahead in at least in their domestic services. But international services are not of good standard, so now a days they loosing customers specialy in international level. But due to their economic fares they are somehow able to stand in the market.

            Skype is number one software to connect your beloved.

            My family is living in far away in India, my one of the best friend is living in Sydney. It's hard to be in touch with them with telephone, cause it's costing too much. So skype is doing this job for me to cut the telephone cost. It's realy a sofisticated software to connect people over internet whenever wherever you like. The best thing of skype is it's sound quality. I realy love it's sound, it's better than over telephone. no background noise as in google talk & other services. If you try skype than definitely you will forget all others. very good connectivity even in very low network & slow speed internet. If you using webcam than you will get superb quality pictures. there are options to capture snaps of your far away beloved. you can view full screen, this feature is unique in itself, you can not get it anywhere else than skype. you can send voice mail, can record conversation. These are not, only features of skype but there are a lot more than this. You will find it very interesting.

              Better way to stay connected to your beloved round the globe

              Google is the most popular these days. Not due to publicity or advertisement but, it's simplified technology. It's very easy to use google rather any other. Google talk is also same like google. It's very simple but sofisticated software to connect people over internet. I am using google talk, Skype, Hotmail, MI and Yahoo messanger. But out of all I found google very easy, good sound quality (Yes Skype have Excellent sound quality, much better than Google talk) superb features & easy to use. Now a days more people inclined towards google than yahoo. Yahoo is looking like a out dated. I prefer google over yahoo & most of the people doing same, because of it's user friendly features. Even same thing is case of email. Yahoo services are not that good as of google. If you mail using a google account than you can get email sooner than yahoo, hotmail & rediffmail. If I have to rank these for talking than I will rank Skype A++ & Goolge A+ and yahoo A than rediff & hotmail.

                Fun Loving way of connecting your friends.

                Orkut, let me think from where should I start discussion regarding orkut. My lovely connecting site. Very easy to handle, understand & tackle it. Basically orkut is a networking community site where you can find your old friends, create new one and be in touch with your current friends. I prefer Orkut over facebook & hi5, because it's very easy to create your profile, edit profile & find your friends. you can share picture album with your friends & others if you want. You can message any body on the network, scrap your friends on your network. I am using orkut for last more than three years. I am enjoying it too much. Since than it changed a lot & introduced a lot of new fucntions. Like you can block you scrapbook to view for other than your friends. You can add videos from youtube. Block your album to view for non-friends. You can join yourself to any community, share your view with others on the community. You can also create your own community as well. It have a lot of mind blowing functions, you will definitely love them. The best thing in orkut is the simplysity & in comperison to facebook, where if you searching a friend than you can get access to only his/her profile picture & name, that's it. But in orkut you can view whole the profile which is available to view for public except a few thing which user blocked from viewing or accessing. In over all I rank Orkut best over facebook.

                  If you have good nose to sneeze scams than Gumtree is the best place to sell & buy stuff.

                  Gumtree is offering a lot of opportunities to individual & business. At first time when I was refered to gumtree by one of my friend, I was bit hesitated regarding security & out comes. The first add I put on gumtree was an accommodation offer. I came out with a lot of responses in a very short time than I realise the importance of gumtree. Now it's my favourite site for offering accommodation & selling & buying stuff from individuals. The best thing is that gumtree never participate in your transactions, you have to deal directly with customers or offerer or offeree. The only worry here in gumtree is that of scammers. They are buzzing around all the time with out of terms offerings. Yes me too had combat with some scammers, But don't worry you can spot them very easly. If they offering you that seems too much in consideration to cost & providing you personal & confidential information even you did not ask for that than there must be something loophole. If you developed this skill to handle scams than you can enjoy the fantastic benefits of gumtree. You can post you advertissment for offering a space in your house, or you can request for a room & there are too many other options as well. Like selling & buying household stuff from people who shifting somerwhere else or not too many in the house or got new one. You can get a pelenty of choices there. so come & have a look on well trusted community site, gumtree.com.. you can enjoy the best supporting services from staff of gumtree team. really very promt & supporting staff always there to help you.

                    I am enjoying Tesco Baked Beans a lot... what aobut you?

                    When ever I go for shopping at Tesco, I never forget to buy Tesco baked bean. It's costing me only 20p very cost efective. Heiz is costing three time more than this brand, I don't know why? I used both, but did not realise any considerable difference between these two. than why should i pay three time more than this? never. so I always go for Tesco Baked Beans, As I am Vegetarian & it's suitable for vegetarian. It's tomoto sause is very nice in test. I use to open & put it into a bowl & keep for frying for 3-5 minutes with medium heat & meanwhile i use to put some spices, like cumin seeds, red ground chilli powder, turmeric & salt. After that you can use it with bread, chapati, or mexican wraps. But i like with chapatis. It's realy giving nice taste with chapatis. I am using this at least 2 to 3 times in a week. & enjoying a lot.

                      If you need quality Toaster than Trust Philip HL 5211

                      I was looking for toaster around & gone through many models 7 manufactures, some cheap toaster are really cheap in quality a well, I just ingnored non quality one & started looking for only well known one. But a few one which I found was good in quality but price was bit out of my pocket so, can not able to finalise than I think about this toaster Philip HL 5211. I still got it bit costly because it was going cost me £40 But when I have a look at on it than I realise that it's really having something quality. It having bit wider slots, 2 slices, any size of bread can fix in. there is a option for cancelling is the toasting if you want to cancel. very easy to clean, It also having a nice Crum Tray. Over all I satisfied with this toaster in terms of value for money. Quality is assured by Philip a well known electronic items producing company.

                        Looking for Daily use laptop, than go for only Dell Inspiron 1525.

                        Dell inspiron 1525 is the best lap top when we consider the price as a due factor. I brought dell inspiron 1525 as gift to my friend. it cost me only £400. What you need in £400 more than this kind of configuration. 120GB Harddrive, 3GB RAM, core 2 duo technology, comparitive light weight. If you go for sony viao for this kind of configuration than you can not get price any how around dell inspiron. Dell Laptop are comparatively good in working than others. yes sony is also very good, but they are bit costly than any one. My suggestion for you is that, If you looking for a laptop around this range than never miss this dell inspiron 1525. It's medium sized screen is realy good. If you go for big screen than it looks odd & if you go for smaller one than you find hard to type & see the screen. than it will become like a palm top rather laptop. In my experience & opinion this is the best laptop for daily use.

                          Over all BT is the Good Broadband service Provider

                          BT Broadband is the best one i have ever used. since 2006 i am using BT Broadband option three services. As every service provider BT aslso have pros and cons. BT is offering broadband services in three options. Very simple, option one option two & option three. I have option three. which is unlimited downloading in fair use terms. I am paying £28 Monthly as direct debit to bt broadband. it's fast speed. Right now I am getting 54mps connectivity. Downloading speed remains near one mb. Customer services of bt is also better than virgin media & tiscali. Orange also don't have that much of network. But bt is available most of the part of UK. the best part of broadband option three is of that free weekend & evening 02 & 01 calls. I am getting a good benefit out of them. International call rate is also lower in bt rather than other operator. As per my experience BT is the better service provider than Virgin Media, Tiscali & Orange.

                              I will Highly Recommend you, if you are planing for Florida trip.

                              This is a real wonderful place for fun & pleasure in Orlando. I will definitely go again there if I got opportunity & time. Lovely scene & environment out there with lovely people. Yes as per price point of view it seems bit costly, but you will get that kind of facility & fun so you will be 100% satisfy with your trip of joy. Transport facility is also not very good, but will not get any trouble due to this as well. A huge mass of clean & warm water attract everybody irrational to age & mood. If you go alone even in that case I promise, you did not free lonelyness or boring, will definitely find some body to join you, thanks to lovely & helpful people coming every day over there. In last I will recommend this site, if you have any plan for visit to florida. thanks you very much for taking your time & interest in Typhoon Lagoon. © sukhdeo 2008 (posted in its original form on ciao UK under the name dave8london)

                                Go for Review writing, ingnore survyes.

                                CIAO Review Writing:- ciao is the one of community where you need not to worry about your safety in all sense i.e. your right, your money will be paid safely in your account without any bias. I have registered for ciao a few years before but didn't write any review, I did not participated in any surveys & did not write any review, Because at that time I thought, this is also a scam or some thing like that which is not intended to give money to members, But when I listen the news that ciao is over taken by MICROSOFT than I realise that, at that time I did a huge mistake to not being a active member of ciao. But now onwards I am an active member of ciao & getting all benefits & neverthless these are increasing day by day. Writinga review is very interesting part of caio community. But initially you need to devote some time & be patience for first couple of week & keep going by writing good reviews, giving ratings to other reviews & learning the features of CIAO, People who need result in a minutes & can not hold their nerve. If you wanna do something in life than you can not expect result in a day. Rome was not built in a day. But once it get existance than you feel the joy of being part of it. Lastly I cay say that, DO NOT MISS THIS OPPORTUNITY. go & get it now. CIAO Survyes:- Well to participate in a survey is really a fun. CIAO surveys use to be one of them in it's earlier days. Now a days it's coming in a long format with very less pay. somtime even only 10p. Do you beleive any one can spent 50 minutes for this 10p. You can find this laying on the road or park. Most of the time you use to pay as a tip at restaurants more than 10 times of amount these surveys offering. It never stand in front of national minimum wages, though that is not point. But it's very time consuming & less paying. You know some times these surveys disqualify from participating after asking you a series of questions for first 10 to 15 minutes, That is rediculous part. I don't like that part for less offering surveys, Yes in case they offering good money say £1 or more than no problem but for 10 or 15p, not possible for me to give this much of time. So over all I can say that, it's 100 times better to write a review than going for surveys. © sukhdeo 2008 (posted in its original form on ciao UK under the name dave8london)

                                  Here I am going to share my experience of HP Photosmart 2610 All-in-one. ABOUT HP PHOTOSMART 2610 :- Color prints, photo prints, copies, scans, and faxes Up to 30 ppm print speed(Good for up to Medium user), up to 4,800 x 1,200 dpi resolution Up to 30 cpm, reduces and enlarges 25 to 400% 2,400 x 4,800 dpi scan resolution, 48-bit color( that's good one) USB, PictBridge, and 802.3 Ethernet connectivity; can be used on PC and Mac If you need driver or supporting software than you can download it from hp site online free of charge. HP photosmart 2610 all in one is a superb for home or small office or for student. I am using this allrounder since 2006. It's working perfectly. I haven't yet done any repairing work, even I didn't have routine service from the day I bought it. My god, what you need more if have HP Photosmart 2610 beside your PC. priting is superb, yes bit slower, but good for those who need to print lesser. Scaner is fantastic, good quality scan never match with anything else. Copier is another supplimentry option. Good thing is that you can copy even in colour as well. And the last but not least is Fax. You do not need to be grabed your space with separately with printer, fax, copier amd scaner. so in my experience this is the good alrounder to have on your table. © sukhdeo 2008 (posted in its original form on ciao UK under the name dave8london)
