Eye Mobile

Read this blog at

I loved the movie that these guys have made with the demo app. Motion detection is nothing new but I dont think there are several libraries out there that do this.. atleast for the BREW and J2ME environments.

check out the demos here.

Recruiters and Mailing lists

Is it just me or has anyone else noticed the amount of emails we get from recruiters in mailing lists. I dont mind the ocassional email or two but lately almost all the development mailing lists I am registetered in have no questions ... just mails from recruiters enticing me to join a MNC in banglore. Thats not the end of it, I guess my email address was picked up and I keep getting emails from staffing firms (atleast 6-8) in a day. 80% of these emails are not even for my field of work. Some even offer me positions related to Mechanical engineering.

Now, lets get something straight. I am not against recruiters. They have a job to do like me but c'mon would you look at the profile of the person before approaching him. Maybe, I am irritated casue I am not in the Job Market but even if I was I would have appreciated just 1 email a week from a recruiter who has gone through my profile and had some work related to what I want to do. I would never be happy about getting 20 mails a day offering me jobs from desk clerks to .NET professionals.

I have already unsubscribed from most of the mailing lists... leaving only the ones that do have an occasional technical discussion.

Back from BREW2005

Got back on Sunday from San Dieogo. Spent Saturday in Diego soaking in the great weather in Diego. Met a couple of old friends.. all in all the trip was nice.

The conference was well organized and the auidience though limited was very focussed. Kudos to QGuys again. The Golden Ale served in BREWfest deserves special mention ;-)
