The $300 Million Button

Recently i came to know about this article.... very interesting... 

How Changing a Button Increased a Site's Annual Revenues by $300 Million
It's hard to imagine a form that could be simpler: two fields, two buttons, and one link. Yet, it turns out this form was preventing customers from purchasing products from a major e-commerce site, to the tune of $300,000,000 a year. What was even worse: the designers of the site had no clue there was even a problem.
The $300,000,000 Fix
The designers fixed the problem simply. They took away the Register button. In its place, they put a Continue button with a simple message: "You do not need to create an account to make purchases on our site. Simply click Continue to proceed to checkout. To make your future purchases even faster, you can create an account during checkout."

Water Vs Gatorade

Nice to know ......

Before you go to sleep, always drink a glass of water or two in order to make you fall asleep faster and wake up in a more refreshed mood. On the other hand, drinking soda contains caffeine which makes you stay awake. Drink water before you go to bed, it's better for you and you'll have a better night's sleep.

You may have known of people that say Gatorade is a lot healthier than water. While in some ways they may be correct, they do not realize how much sugar Gatorade contains. Gatorade is made to make your body become energy-charged, and help you with physical work outs and sports training. Gatorade is not made to be consumed all the time and could actually make you gain weight over time. Drinking water does not contain sugar.

Python in Android - Android Scripting Environment(ASE)

Today i came know that there is a Python Android Scripting environment  that does amazing thing in few line.
Actually python is the only language which is having single line of code for hello world :).
Even in android Python does the magical programing in few lines.

An example via Matt Cutts -- "here's a barcode scanner written in six lines of Python code:

  import android
= android.Android()
= droid.scanBarcode()
= int(code['result']['SCAN_RESULT'])
= "" % isbn
.startActivity('android.intent.action.VIEW', url)

How easy it is...!!!. It is tempting me to go and buy a Android phone asap...and try my python programing skill in Android industry.
