Federer wins again.

Roger Federer beat Fernando González to win the Australian Open for the third time - also his tenth grand slam, in all. Man, this guy is unstoppable and if he continues winning at this rate, he might become the greatest tennis player of all time.

Exun: EXUN Unlimited

Wouldn't it be cool if Exun stood for Exun Unlimited? Recursive, like GNU, PHP and WINE.

Nokia's Aeon

Okay. I know this is just a concept phone, but nonetheless it is beyond doubt one of the coolest phones that I have ever seen in my life. Orgasmic is the right word to describe this phone.

If this phone is ever made, I'm going to drop my K790i like a hot potato and buy this, even if it doesn't have any features (Heck, I'd buy it even if it didn't make phone calls).

And this is an image from the official Nokia site. Skeptics, click here.

All that glitters is not gold

Message to Apple fanboys: All that glitters isn't gold.

Take a look at the resemblance between LG's phone and Apple's iPhone.

It was obvious that Apple wasn't going to manufacture the iPhone themselves, but now it seems like one of the following occurred:-
1. Apple sub-contracted to LG
2. LG and Apple both sub-contracted to the same manufacturer
1 is likelier.
