Large File Attachments in an E-mail

If you wish to attach large files to an email, there are various services you can use. For instance, www. supershare.net is really easy to use and requires no sign up - just upload your file and you'll be given a download link which you can share over email.

Once the download has been completed, you also have the option of manually deleting the file so that it is no longer available at the download link. Other similar services that you can try out are DropSend, Windows Live SkyDrive, Gigasize.

You can also use a free service called Boxify. This is particularly useful if you want to share a lot of different files with a group of people. Just open the website and start uploading files - no sign up is required. You'll be given a URL (which is also customisable ), which you can share with as many people as you like.

Mobile Money With Nokia

Nokia have unveiled a first of its kind mobile wallet. If you are surprised when I say the first of the lot, please read further. Nokia Money as it is called is like having digital cash in your mobile. It is different because you will not need to have a bank account or internet. Register at the nearest Nokia retail shop and load your wallet with the digital money. Since it is closed you will not need to have Know-Your-Client (KYC) document. The digital cash can be used for making payments using an SMS.

I will list 3 highlights of Nokia money to differentiate from the others
1. Nokia Money is independent of any operators or banking networks.
2. The app is available on the existing Nokia handsets. Hence can be used by all the people irrespective of the          handsets.
3. Nokia Money works over SMS and thus giving flexibility to the users.

The Allianz Arena

The Allianz Arena is a football stadium that is home to both Munich football clubs FC Bayern Munich and TSV 1860. The Allianz arena is named after the financial company who has bought the rights to name the stadium for 30 years.

The stadium light up in red when FC Bayern Munich plays, blue when TSV 1860 plays and lights up in white when the German national team plays.

The arena has air foil panels that are fitted on the exterior of the stadium. The panels have small dots that change color based on the team playing. Multicolor lighting is also possible. Each panel can be independently lit with white, red, or blue light. The intention is to light the panels at each game with the colors of the respective home team, or white if the home team is the German national football team is playing.
