Baby Names Explorer

Came across this link via lifehacker. The NSW government has created the Baby Names Explorer. It uses the NSW Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages to chart the top baby names over the past 100 years. Its pretty cool, unfortunately, ‘Kunaal’ has never seemed to be a popular name in NSW, I wonder why? 😉

When Life Gets in the way

Finally back online! the past month has been crazy hectic, what with me moving into my own apartment, getting my basic furniture, appliances set up and finally getting my new laptop and internet connected, I have barely had time to breathe.

Goodbye Seems To Be The Hardest Word

Let me start by apologising to Sir Elton John for mutilating the title of his famous song (Sorry Seems to Be the Hardest Word), however I do disagree with him on this.

iPhone, gPhone.. PSP-Phone?? whats next?

I can understand that the mobile phone industry is worth billions of dollars, which is probably what prompted Apple to get into the mobile phone race with the release of its iPhone a few months ago. There has also been speculation and rumors rife for a while now regarding Google’s entry into the market with the ‘GPhone’. In between buying out phone software companies, making statements like “Your Mobile Phone Should Be Free” and reading claims about Execs denying its…
