Change time settings in Orkut Profile

I have seen many people complain that the time settings in scraps in orkut doesnt match the local time, and hence this special post. There is no time settings in orkut and so many feel this is a bug.
Whereas this is just because of google's single sign on policy.

To change your time settings in orkut, all you have to do is to log on to using your orkut username and password. There you have to go to my account(top right corner of the webpage) and edit your personal info. Here you can change your timezone and country. This will reflect on all Google apps immediately.
Happy orkutting

Write your text messages on "air"!!!

The next destined killerapp for iPhone could easily be an application called the PhonePoint Pen which allows users to 'write' short notes in the air with their mobile phone.The notes are then sent automatically to a designated e-mail address. The app was created by engineering students at Duke University in North Carolina, USA.

So how is it supposed to work?
The application makes use of the accelerometer technology already present in most of the high end phones like iPhone.With the help of the accelerometer the application will track and record the phone's external motions and use a predictive coordinate system to recognise the letters.

The application is expected to be out within a year so watch out
