Yesterday I came across a wonderful and innovative service called which is an extremely east-to-use and effective service to send tweets using mobile phone SMS. Now you no more need fancy mobile phone or data plans to tweet on the go. Just use any mobile handset which can send an SMS. The charge of sending SMS is normal SMS tariff. This is not a premium tariff service SMS which make a hole in your pockets.

There are to SMS numbers one for Mumbai and one for Bangalore. So if you are in these states, you can send an SMS at local SMS charge, else it will cost you a National SMS charge.

You just need to login using your twitter id once and register your mobile number and you are ready to tweet via SMS. I tested it and its lightening fast.


December 29, 2009 Participate In Conversations Of Your Choice

Filed under: Communication — Tags: — Mohit @ 11:28 am

Conversation is an inevitable part of human life. Every person on this planet has a particular thought process and a personal opinion about everything happening around him. What could be extremely good for one could turn out to be a cobra’s venom for another. Now, its also a human nature to share one’s thoughts and opinion about something with other minds and there is always a curiosity to know what the others have to say about the same thing.

Gravity brings together people from various walks of life and provides them with a common platform to speak out their minds and share their views on almost everything they care about.

Also, Gravity acknowledges the fact that it’s our ability to converse that sets us apart from lesser beasts. Humans are pretty clever. Not only can we express feelings like hunger, anger and happiness (cats and badgers can do all of these), with language we can describe stuff, communicate complicated ideas, engage in debate, and teach and learn from each other.


December 27, 2009 Save Energy And Get Rewards

Filed under: Education — Tags: — Mohit @ 1:32 pm

Now, it was an inevitable conclusion that a legally binding climate change mitigation agreement was a non-starter even before the Copenhagen climate summit began. And that is what came out on the last day of the conference, leaving the much harder task of a legally binding treaty to Mexico in November.

But that’s the problem challenging the nations at a international level. It was not right on their part, agreed, but what now? I have one question for every literate person out there- what are we as an individual doing to prevent global warming and thus controlling climate change? Don’t we have any responsibility towards our planet Earth?

We all can do our little bit to keep the earth Green. We can conserve and save energy(electricity, gas, water) used at our homes, workplace, etc with the help of Earth Aid. Earth Aid has developed a free service that measures your monthly energy use and rewards you based on how much you save.

It follows 3 simple steps :

  1. They will review your household’s energy use from your utility company will create a “baseline” using the details.
  2. Earth Aid then provides you with customized advice to become more energy-efficient, and then measures your next year of energy use.
  3. Last (and most importantly), Earth Aid empowers you to earn rewards based on the amount of energy you have conserved.

Code developers often have a nightmare when their development environment gets corrupted or some other snags stop them from creating and deploying their application.

Days of wishful thinking are over with our website which provides free and cross platform Integrated Development Environment.
