Wordless Thursday – A World without Google

If you are reading this blog for a while, you will definitely know my love for Google. From Search to mail, from image search to docs, Google earth, picassa and all the goodies that Google provides for free  I am a fan of everything. In fact I hope to someday make some decent money from this blog from Google Ads. But all aside, what would the Internet be like without Google ? I cannot imagine it. I am completely dependent on Google for my day to day stuff. Google It, is kinda my online life. But what would really happen if Google was not there, here is an infographic to kinda show the impact of Google on our life, and a life without Google.

I hope this Info graphic is scary enough for all you Google haters, so much so that you get rid of those Google Ad blockers and go ahead and click on the ads that you find interesting maybe even on this blog.


The price of Technology !

New, latest, advanced are the keywords of the new techno savvy world. Techno savvy did i say, well yes. If you have changed your mobile phone in the last 10 months, you fall in this category too. Yes, that means even you who got the phone just so that you are not left out in the crowd.

Anyway, the price we are paying for this cannot be described or lemme try to describe it, “Global Meltdown”, the next few years is going to see us loose out on a lot of the goodies from the “Good ol’ days”. What am i going to loose ?

Well picture this, crops are not in as much abundance as it should be, because of which rains are not as strong as they were. Due to lack of rains, countries are in serious shortage of water and a global struggle trying to hold on to maximum amounts of water begins, Water is coined “Liquid Diamond” and is the most sought after commodity in the entire world. Especially drinking water, methods of purification are failing due to various reasons, like major water bottling companies not allowing the bottling of purified water. America attacks “LD” rich countries in an attempt to gain as much control over the LD resources. The claim that the countries house weapons Mass Destruction.

Bangladesh is one of the victims, and in an attempt to retain their Integrity they attack back, but due to the poor technology they have which is borrowed from Pakistan the missile lands in China, killing most of the communist leadership. This leads to a huge meltdown in the Chinese government and hence the Chinese economy, which by then is the dominating power along with America and India. The collapse of the Chinese economy brings about a two headed race for supremacy between India and America and a well known Arms Race, butter fingered America again launch the familiar Nuclear weapon leading to world war 3. And in the end the destruction of Mankind.

Sounds like a story straight out of a conspiracy theory. But if you think about it, its not impossible. The reason for all this, Our Cell Phones. Well what has our cellphones got to do with world war 3 ? The Butterfly effect. Something “small and insignificant” in today’s world, can be responsible for the extinction of the human race.

Scientists suggest that our love of the mobile phone could cause massive food shortages, as the world’s harvests fail. They are putting forward the theory that radiation given off by mobile phones and other hi-tech gadgets is a possible answer to one of the more bizarre mysteries ever to happen in the natural world – the abrupt disappearance of the bees that pollinate crops. You can read more about it here.

As far as I am concerned, i am going to stick to my N80, and will wait for a Radiation free Mobiles like G-Hanz models to become more affordable. Then perform my switch, until then, every call i make will remind me of the grim future I am keeping in store for my future generations.

What Might have been

Every time new technology is promoted these days, people give the example of the telephone, i have always heard people comparing new technology to the success of telephone or the television, the very sophisticated, i-know-it-all look and the statement “When people saw the telephone for the first time they laughed, and said its amazing but who is going to use it”.

But, in the process of trying to achieve the same level of success with newer apt inventions many of the scientists have lost their everything. My today’s blog is a tribute to one not-so-well known scientist who tried to create the unthinkable and if approved would have shown the doors of exit to the energy crisis the world over, maybe even would have stopped the oil-crazy Americans to get into Iraq saving thousands of lives, both evil and divine. ENERGY FROM VACUUM, a concept so weird that we may take some time to digest. My today’s blogging tribute goes to Inventor Edwin Gray or Ed Gray.

33 years ago in 1974, the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office unprovoked – shut down inventor Ed Gray’s facilities which were preparing to produce the Gray Car powered by Ed Gray’s fuel less motor, which utilized energy from the vacuum. Historic photographs from the brochure of Ed Gray’s car have been posted on The Tom Bearden Website Here.

This could have been the greatest gift of a man to mankind. But alas the Greed of man, one day we will definitely chop the branch that we are sitting on, and it will all be over. Well The Vacuum powered engine aside, some of the additions to this car would have definitely been the pride of the owner with the then latest technologies like electronic speedometer projected on the deck of the car, 360 degrees turning radius, power steering, lesser parts of the vehicle, Lexan (another alternative for safety glass) etc. hmm … guess we will have to wait for the next free energy car.

Special Thanks to Roy for this.
