Something new in my Arsenal - SoundMAGIC PL11 Earphones

Just got my SoundMAGIC PL11 Earphones yesterday, Here is a brief writeup regarding the same.
I presently own SoundMAGIC PL30's with me, So why did I get PL11's? Well, here is the answer.. The PL 30's play the soft music pretty well, giving you pure output. But when it comes to listening to some Bass tracks the earphones don't hold up that much, They are clear but they lack that Bass punch.

After reading reviews about the Earphones finally made a decision that the PL 11's can satisfy my thirst of Bass within Budget.

Ordered one From bay from seller, After applying eBay coupon the price came down to 550 Rs…!! Awesome deal..

Lets speak about the Quality. plugged into my iPod Nano and started listening to the Music(Yeah MP3's for the timing, will try some FLAC's later). They simply sound Awesome, Better than the PL 30's bass and Creative EP-630's don't even come close to this. The bass is just too good. Pure sound and bass injected to your ears. Now that is something really worth paying for.

Well the packaging contains so many items:
1. Earphones+Clip
2. A Pouch
3. Cable wrapper
4. Multiple silicone earplugs so as to suit your ears.

So you want to hear the music the way it should sound, then you gotta get one of these at least…! The Warm bass response and a superb degree of clarity at higher frequencies, PL11 just feels fantastic.

Heart and Mind gone Bonkers on Palm Pre and Web OS....!!

Working with a Mobile app development firm has it's own advantages. You get your hands dirty with Mobile phones which are not yet launched in India or at least you cannot reach your hands on because they are expensive. Recently had a chance to check out the Palm Web OS with Pal Pre. Now Can't resist speaking out about it. I am sad because Palm didn't launched their Web OS devices in India. :(

Lets Speak about the OS and Device:
The OS totally gets your mind rolling… Who wants iPhone?? iPhone feels a little pale when compared to Palm Pre+ Web OS.
The UI feels better than the iPhone OS or the Android.
The Multitasking works far better than in any other Mobile OS.
The Physical keyboard lets you type and feel what you are typing.
The screen is something which you will be simply drooling at.
The Web OS dock which feels so good to use, the application quitting gesture (Yeah, you just slide application window up to quit application) the menu's and every aspect of the OS is designed beautifully.

Seriously speaking, I am in totally love with the Web OS….. But only thing I am Scared about is, the phone may not be launched in India….!!

Recently HP acquired Palm, they are interested in the Web OS from palm, so that they can put it into their device like printers and so called iPad Competitors:
What I can do now is just hope:
Hope HP Does not forget about Palm were a Smart phone manufacturer.
Hope HP puts some good talent in the R&D and improve Web OS
Hope HP Uses Web OS for Mobiles Primarily and Others secondarily, not the way around.
Hope HP gets some nice Mobile devices into Market .
Hope HP Launches the devices in India.
Hope the Phones support GSM too.

There is a Program running in my mind now


    if ( WebOSdeviceInIndia )
        shop (Palm device);
        spend whateverAmountOfMoney;
    return Happy;
