fuck yahoo mail

i am getting sick of this shit.

every few days, outlook downloads my entire yahoo inbox. this time i deleted the new mails and because i had checked ‘remove mail when deleted from the computer’ it got erased from my yahoo account.

yahoo is fucking POP. wtf kind of email service runs POP these days. i pay these mtherfkers 20 bucks this year only to loose my email.

a few days back i switched my computers and configured outllook and forgot to check ‘leave a copy on the server’. so again my entire inbox got deleted.

hotmail was better i think. gmail is excellent it is imap.

fuck yahoo mail!


Microsoft -> Microsoft!

for $44B, thats an expensive exclamation mark.

microsoft is shit scared that yahoo’s dwindling fortunes may attract google. but its hard to see why all of ms’s brilliant mbas and lawayers couldn’t come up with better hedges against that. ms is buying yahoo’s decreasing market share for 100 truckloads of dollars only to loose it back to G.

i bet there’s a crazy party going on somewhere deep in googleplex…

just how bad is vista

no i dint create this blog to sling shit at microsoft. although i can’t see whats stopping me from doing just that.

i bought this new sony vaio about six months back with vista business and everything. really excited about the next gen os from folks who have been doing this since eternity only to get incredibly frustrated and give it up in favor of a macbook. Macbook black after a student discount, a ram upgrade, a copy of parallels & mac office 08 (can’t do without that in the civilized world) i was out by about over 2 Gs.

mind you, i am not one of your ‘apple fanboys’. m a first time mac user. also a developer i never before entertained the thought of a mac simply because it seemed impossible to switch over to a new os with all the development tools and everything.

but looks like redmond is getting better at creating shittier software! and the parallels vm helped the decision. now m running xp in parallels. and i am happy. i would be ecstatic if entourage (outlook on mac) dint keep crashing every time i woke up the machine.

by now i hope you have guessed the moral of the story – dont buy vista! xp is far better. or if you really want a next gen os, get leopard.

have a nice life!
