Team Bangalore for Life

I was never a big fan of any Cricket Premier League team or of even Cricket Premier League when I was in my home town. The reason is obvious that I didn't have a team to associate with, to cheer for. There was no team even from my entire big State of UP in Cricket Premier League so it was tough to correlate with. But then I moved to Bangalore, my love for Cricket League started to increase day by day because of  Team Bangalore and no doubt that I am cheering for Team Bangalore madly . #RCBForLife Is the tagline to describe the madness with this club.
The Team Bangalore has so many world class players especially the batters. Look at our batting lineup for a T20 match, Mighty Gayle, Cool Kohli, Sixer king Yuvi and the formidable AB De Villieres along with Albie Morkel and the Indian Talents. Who can forget Gayle making 175 runs in just  66 balls against Pune, that was next to carnage for a fielding team. AB De playing match winning knocks so many times and this time we have got the King of sixes, the fighter Yuvraj Singh. There are very less players in cricket who can do such clean striking as Yuvi and Kohli. With Mitchel Starc leading the bowling along with young Chahal and the youngest Muralidharan we have a balanced bowling attack. We have a calm and experienced coach in Daniel  Vettori.

  • I am a fan of Team Bangalore and wanna be superfan so I am cheering for Team Bangalore
  • We were runner-up 2 times, I want Team Bangalore to win Cricket Premier League for 1st time so I am cheering for Team Bangalore
  • I love the city Namma Bangalore so I am cheering for Team Bangalore
  • I want Gayle and Yuvi to hit Sixes in the crowd and make them happy so I am cheering for Team Bangalore.
  • I want Mitchel Starc to bowl at 150 Km/hr and rout the opposition batting so I am cheering for Team Bangalore
  • Our Captain and ABD are one of the humblest and coolest cricketers so I am cheering for Team Bangalore
  • I have always been a fan of AB De Villeres no matter which team he plays for, he is part of Team Bangalore so I am cheering for Team Bangalore.
  • Each time I go to Chinnaswamy stadium, the environment and Vibe there gives me goose bumps feelings and to be a part of 40000 crowds cheering for Team Bangalore make me feel special so I am cheering for Team Bangalore.
  • Meeting with the team was one of the biggest moment in my life so I am cheering for Team Bangalore
  • Team Bangalore has all the ingredients to become a champion team so I am cheering for Team Bangalore.
  • #RCBForLife so I am cheering for Team Bangalore. 

I will keep chanting Aaaaaaaaaaarrr Ceeeeeeeeeee Beeeeeeeeeeeeee :)

Coast browser by Opera

On Thursday 6th Feb we the bloggers in Bangalore were invited for Opera software meetup for Opera’s latest browser “Coast”. It was presented by Coast Team Leader, Huib Kleinhout. Coast is designed keeping Ipads in mind and can be downloaded from Opera’s site or Apple App stores. The first version of this Ipad-Centric browser Coast was launched in September 2013 and then version 2.0 was launched on 17th Dec 2013. Version 2.0 has extra features like wallpaper customization and displaying titles when playing video and audio online.

As it’s only available for Ipads and I don’t own an Ipad, I haven’t got much chance to try hands on it but whatever I could gather during meetup is that it’s touch and feel is really good. It stores Websites as apps on homepage and that really make home page looks cool. Swiping really works very well with browser. There are some really cool features with this browser

  • In Coast home page every website is stored as Apps and is easily customizable and it really makes it look cool. Search is just a drag away on home page.
  • Everything in Coast is accessible with Swipe and no need to press Forward and back button
  • Coast lets you control web pages that are playing media, from the iOS lock screen, as if they were being played in native music players.
  • Coast has next Gen security level, infact it has feature to calculate the Risk related with any site based on website’s certificate and hence user interaction is very less to choose from Yes/No/Continue whenever any security issue comes unlike any other browser.
  • Websites that are playing content will show small animation of a graphic EQ on their icon on Coast's home screen and it really makes it look cool.
  • PDFs can be directly opened in iBooks or your favorite PDF reader and it has good improvement from previous version.

Keeping how apple treats its iOS and doesn’t allow third party browsers to make full use of its resources and hence making those browsers underperform, Coast has really been doing good because of its touch and feel and having some new features that separate it from other Brower’s for Ipads. If you hold an Ipad give it a try
