EXPLANIA, an online ANIMATIONS, what a site !!

EXPLANIA, is indeed a wonderful site full of animations, tutorials and instructional videos. It boasts of a very simple to use interface and is a treat to watch.

I viewed a few animations and it was quite useful, in  simple language and with lots of clarity. One can also make use of the side bar towards the bottom left to view videos from different relevant categories.

Tribute to Steve Jobs - The Man with the "Midas Touch"

I couldn't help writing this post as a tribute to an all time great CEO. No words can explain what he did to all us. He revolutionised the way people use technology. A creative genius that he was, he created magic twice in his life time - first when he founded Apple and second when he returned to Apple. A great visionary and innovator, he ruled the minds and hearts of digital generation - people who grew with technology in their hands. He, for sure, could be credited with bringing in "technotainment" and "edutainment" where the people realised what technology could do for them. Though he may have lost the battle to cancer but for all of us he remains a winner always....Hats off to the Genius !! May his soul rest in peace...Few links dedicated to him..Click on the text to view article
We will miss you Jobs !!
