And this would be my first 1GB hard drive. 😂😂😂 Consider please: it’s 8″ tall, 6″ wide & 2″ across (a 64 GB phone is roughly a sixth the size?) and you can now get microSD cards that hold 128GB.
The first computer I (co-)bought was had an 8GB hard drive and my boyfriend at the time and I marveled at it. What on earth could we even put on there? We had mp3’s, word documents and excel sheets. We weren’t gamers (and anyway, games came on CDs and we had TWO, count ’em, two optical drives. I ripped so many cd’s and made so many mix’tapes’ 😀
My next computer — with which I used this drive — was an iBook 12″ laptop. 64GB hard disk? I can’t recall at all.Such a huge boost from the windows 3.1 desktop and CRT monitor I used when I first got to the US in 1995.
Do you remember your first external hard drive? Please share in the comments 🙂

Classic! I love that they managed to spell the hardest word right, but not the rest 🙂 
I know, I know, the guy stenciling it on is probably illiterate, but the lettering is still funny. Thanks for the entertainment Delhi ‘govrment’!

Borrow

In the Grand Palace, Bangkok, a mysterious edict near the entryway. Whatever could they mean?

P.s. We saw perfectly marked ATM’s everywhere. Is this the rogue machine that calls a spade a spade? Is this the ‘rage against the machine’ machine?

beware
This is the welcome mat outside a friend’s house. The irony is that the wife bought it. Consider yourself warned.

(p.s. Rohini, this one’s for you! Congratulations and all good wishes to you both.)

this made me giggle, especially since I’ve been so closely involved with the Mughals at work. Taken at the Good Earth’s cafe, The Tasting Room, in Mumbai

Tardeo, Mumbai. What can I even say, except I’m sure I’m not the only one quivering in anticipation…

Crrunchy AND frrunchy, too!? What do you say this tagline was thought up by a Punjabi? (probably the “chachaji” for whom the brand is named). 😀

psychicAlso from Rishikesh, this machine purports to read your mind, calibrate your thoughts (see the odometers?) and then broadcast your past, present and future through the headphones 😀 I loved it. For 20 bucks, I was told that the things I was worried about would resolve themselves, my health would improve and I’d become rich. 😀 Paisa wasooli 🙂

beenceso if you can read Hindi, I’ll assume your first impulse was to take your tea and snacks down to the Ganga’s  edge, along with your trusty cake of Medimix soap, and then really laugh loudly and kick up a huge ruckus. Even if we weren’t already laughing out loud, everyone who read this sign out loud was laughing by the time they finished 😀 Big Brother is Watching Mother Ganga!
