How much is your time worth?

Posted by: Gargs In: Economy|Politics|Travel

Just heard on the news about a free gas card promotion that was sponsored by Verizon Yellow Pages at 25 locations in the US. The first 200 cars to line up at each of these locations received a free $40 gas card today. People started lining up at around 10 PM last night to be […]

In times when Indians take amazing pride in giving up their culture and values, I find it amazing that most people I meet in DC are heavily influenced by both Bollywood as well as its cuisine. Nearly everyone I meet (through various meetups, random public transportation encounters, etc.) is keen to learn more about at […]

Interstate driving pet peeves

Posted by: Gargs In: Life and Personal|Travel

I drive a fair amount for leisure and recreation. In fact, most of the miles on my car are from driving from one state to another, or just cruising on the highway. Now, I might not be the best driver in the world, but I try my best to be considerate and adhering towards the […]

Microsoft’s subsidiary TELLME Networks runs a similar service, only with more features available on their free 411 service. So, last week, I was in downtown Washington DC for business, and decided to […]

I was thinking how much things have changed in the last 10 years. We now live in an increasingly connected society, at least from a technological point of view. Yet, at the same time, there are things that haven’t changed at all. We still have the middle east crisis. We’re still fighting hunger and poverty, […]

First snowfall of the season…

Posted by: Gargs In: Life and Personal|Travel

…and I just saw three snow scraper trucks make rounds on the street in front of my apartment. It’s 5:50 AM. Compare this to 2 days of disrupted life in NC when the snow first strikes.

A smart Google investment

Posted by: Gargs In: Tech and Culture|Travel

I just registered my profile at dodgeball.com. It’s a pretty unique service that lets you take the whole online social networking thing offline. You can tell all your friends about your current whereabouts by simply sending a text message from your cellphone to DODGE. Not only that, the service allows you to broadcast simple messages […]
