Coffee Joulies – A refreshingly new way to drink your Coffee

Tuesday, May 24, 2011 1 comment

Coffee or Java as it is most popularly called, is a magical drink which mesmerizes millions of people around the world with its tempting and delicious aroma and flavor.

Hot cup of Coffee

Hot cup of Coffee

For most of us a good hot cup of coffee is the right way to start our day or rather a perfect way to start our day. Imagine the best cup of coffee burning your tongue and playing spoilsport on your early morning coffee drinking experience. Or imagine waiting for your cup of coffee to cool down to your comfortable drinking temperature. Or frankly speaking for people who like to drink their coffee not so hot (just like me 🙂 ) – I know people might wonder – “How the hell do your drink that not so hot coffee – Yikes!!!” For all of you now there is a good news. Two design engineers from US named Dave & Dave have designed a special coffee bean called “Coffee Joulies

Coffee Joulies

Coffee Joulies

Coffee Joulies cools your hot cup of coffee immediately (three times faster than normal) and gets it to a comfortable temperature. Also it retains the comfortable drinking temperature for almost 4 to 5 hours for you to savor. Yes, its true. This is achieved by packaging a special type of non-toxic material inside a stainless steel polished shell. This material absorbs the heat from the hot cup of coffee instantaneously and releases it over a period of time keeping your cup of coffee hot for a longer period of time. Surprising isn’t it. These two engineers have revolutionalized the way we drink our every day cup of coffee. Its priced around $50 per bag of Joulies.

I know you wouldn’t believe what I say – Watch this video to believe the unbelievable 🙂

The two Daves started this Coffee Joulies which was launched as a project on Kickstarter. Seeking $9500 to pay for half the cost of tooling, Dave & Dave ended up raising $306,944 earning them third place in the Kickstarter Hall of Fame and providing enough money to make Joulies in the USA.

I would really like to try those out if I get a chance to do so. So will you I think…

WordPress 2.7 is now online

Friday, December 5, 2008 Leave a comment

Seems interesting, subscribe the way you want to keep updated…

Finally after a long wait, its now online. Yes WordPress 2.7 is online now. Those who have not logged in for a very long time will find it very different and interesting to see the new version of WordPress when they initially login. Even I felt the same way when I logged in today. A sudden change in the view leaves you confused (even when I logged in yesterday). The sudden change in the homepage itself gave me a hint about the availability, but I wanted to check it with my eyes before I can believe it. 🙂 So the change is good…

This new upgrade is more interesting than its predecessors. The new design is based on the JSR 168 Portlets design it seems if I’m not wrong. Portlets are pluggable user interface software components that are managed and displayed in a web portal. Typically, following the desktop metaphor, a portal page is displayed as a collection of non-overlapping portlet windows, where each portlet window displays a portlet.

The navigation is so easy between the modules. You just pick a module and rearrange the way you like it. If one wants to get a feel of the power of portlets, you can see IGoogle by loggin in. The pages in the webpage are easily adjustable and rearrangeable. This upgrad of WordPress is designed the same way I believe.

All together, the new upgrade is very nice. Try it out yourselves to get a feel of it.

Need Blood – It’s just an SMS away

Airtel, India’s leading mobile service provider today strengthened its tie up with Jeevan Blood Bank of Chennai, taking a step ahead in its “Airtel Cares for Everyone” (ACE) project. This is a first of its kind initiative, wherein people can source information on blood within minutes and access the real time stock of tested blood components from Jeevan Blood Bank 24 hours a day.

Airtel already has a partnership with Jeevan, in which a few numbers have been provided free of cost for Jeevan to stay in touch with people wanting to donate blood and patients in need of blood. This is now being strengthened through an SMS service, which provides information about availability of blood.

Procedure:

Type <Blood group + or -> and SMS it to 9600097000

Ex: Type “Blood B+” and SMS it to 9600097000

A response will be sent back to the person within a minute, containing information on quantity of readily available tested blood components of the group required. This facility is available for customers of all networks and you know it is toll free for Airtel mobile customers 🙂 .

If the required blood is available, one can call Jeevan Blood Bank directly on 044-28351200 or 044-43524242 for further assistance. This service will help minimize the time spent on searching for safe blood and help save more lives.

About Jeevan Blood Bank:-

Jeevan Blood Bank and Research Centre was started on 24th September 1995 with the vision of providing, on demand, safe blood and blood components collected from non-remunerated voluntary blood donors using appropriate and current technologies and in accordance to international standards. Over the past thirteen years Jeevan has collected over 72,000 blood donations and made available over 130,000 units of safe blood and blood components to the community. Every blood donation is tested for HIV ( HIV Ag and 1 & 2 Ab), Hepatitis B ( HBsAg & Anti HBc), Hepatitis C ( Anti HCV ), Malaria, Syphilis and Leptospira.

Please note that every unit of blood is being tested by Nucleic Acid Testing ( NAT ) for DNA / RNA for Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C and HIV.

I hope you will also spread this word across your circle so that you can also be a part in saving many a lives. 🙂
