Today is Kartik 27, 2067. For those who live on November 14, 2010, a date with year 2067 seems like a date in future.
We have our own unique dating system, Bikram Era (BS) but, almost all the rest of the world has a common and widely popular dating system, AD. As, the ‘global village’ only understand AD we need to convert our own BS to AD in every aspects of our lives. I used to go to some date converter websites to do the conversion for me but now the process has become much simpler with the availability of smart phones. I have found an App in Apple iTunes very useful in this aspect. If you have an iPhone or iPod Touch running iOS 4.0 or higher, you can download the application for free.
Do you live abroad and sometime wonder today’s date or when is the "Holi", what’s the festival around the corner ? Do you think twice about time in Nepal before calling home? Now you don’t have to, "There’s an app for that". You can download "Nepali Calendar" for iPhone and iPod from iTunes app store. Further details can be obtained from the developer’s website.
Main features of the App are:
- current date/time and list of upcoming holidays/festivals in the main tab
- month by month calendar with both Nepali and English date
- date conversion utility that convert from BS to AD and vice-versa
- foreign exchange rate with graph of exchange rate history for last 30 days.
Apple, one of the most innovative company in electronics gadgets has unveiled a number of redesigned iPod music players.
One of the most popular music player and gaming device, iPod touch, is now more attractive with two cameras on the front and the back. With a capability of shooting high definition movies and Facetime talk through WiFi, and high resolution display, it is much better than the iPad tablet, Apple released some time back. Although small with 3.5" display when compared to 9.7" display of iPad,
many prefer iPod Touch for it’s smaller form factor and portability.
Apple’s iPod Nano was also reduced by about half in size and now sports new multitouch screen. It looks much attractive and wearable with the clip-on design.
The "one more thing" in today’s keynote address by Steve Jobs was termed "one more hobby" and he unveiled a much smaller Apple TV box when compared to the previous release. With this release, Apple has stepped into cloud streaming of movies and TV shows.
Apple has also started it’s own Facebook style social networking, Ping, in its desktop software iTunes. Ping can
also be used with iPhones and iPod Touch. But it is not clear if there will be a web version of Ping.
With all these new releases, today’s event was a huge event in terms of Apple fans. Apple has also ensured it’s domination on music once again.
