Re: LCA Tejas: News and Discussions

Watched the Bahrain TV clip in Tejas FB page in Bed; a lovely thing to wake up to! Decent commentary as well; although felt like he was struggling to find any details to say. Overall, a good show.

And, TeeJaas! :twisted:

My worry is more about something as Large 777 with its transponder shut off able to cross A&N islands with no news from Indian Navy/Airforce. Hope that is not true. I thought the same. Even if it managed to circumnavigate India, it should've been picked up the Chineese tracking stations. Otherw...

Is this correct? I read in the Slashdot comments that the color should be white to reflect heat & thought it made sense.

Re: Phone, Tablet and Gizmo Thread #0x02

I agree with the general sentiment that tablets are pretty much useless! I bought a Nexus 7 last year (after a quite long research) to use as an ereader and a tablet. I used it for the first couple of months but slowly it was abandoned. Now a days I barely use it. The fact it, you have the Office PC...
