You might not figure it out as an achievement for Veena Malik herself, rightly so, but the idea is to talk about the buzz that Twitter users from Pakistan can generate. They roared this evening, and roared high!
Luckily it was a chilly winter weekend, and every one had enough time to watch the TV and later on to discuss the lady in their Twitter feeds.
Veena Malik started getting mentioned in the twitter timeline around 8:00 PM when Geo aired a TV Show named "50 Minutes", which discussed Veena Malik and her acts in the Big Boss, a Reality Show she did recently in India.
Veena Malik Mentions went real crazy around 10:00 PM when Express TV's 'Front Line' hit the screens, in which Veena Malik herself was invited.
This post almost ends here, I am sorry if you were looking for a commentary on Veena Malik's deeds in Big Boss, yes this is not the place to get that. But let me hook you to couple of links, where you might get some good reads and couple of shows!

Price: Rs. 54,000 approx
This laptop was released on 9th Jan 2011, and would be available in the Pakistani markets in March 2011.
External DVD R/W:
This machine lacks an in built DVD R/W. Although you can have a portable HP DVD-ROM, but in some cases people do prefer to not carry around a lot of equipment.
An external DVD ROM is beneficial because it can be connected to any machine if it's built in DVD malfunctions but it is certainly not desirable to plug in a DVD ROM each time you want to use it. It is actually done by HP to reduce the weight of the system and make it more portable.
The system boasts a considerable graphics card. Its not meant for the high tech gaming but it isn't a disappointment like Intel as well. Apart from that, it is pretty difficult to get a good graphics card into a 0.8" thick and 3.8lbs heavy machine. So as compared to the size and weight, the graphics card is pretty good.
Although this system has the Bluetooth in it, which was missing in previous dm series but it also comes with some software issues. You can transfer data to or from the system easily using the Bluetooth but for some weird reason you cannot keep a device synchronized for long.
If you are using Bluetooth headphones or Bluetooth mouse, you will have to synchronize it again and again. Even the HP Bluetooth mouse faces this problem. This is very irritating because it causes a repeated disruption if you are working. Also, there is no solution for this problem.
Irritating Touch Pad:
The touchpad of the machine is on the same level as the keyboard. So when you type you have to be careful about not touching the key pad. Experienced user who are habitual of facing this problem but novice users often find it a bit problematic.
The best suggestion regarding this is that you can deactivate the keypad if you aim to type for long periods of time and activate it once you are done. With regular use, you will get accustomed to placing your hands properly while typing.
Almost a Netbook:
Some users call this machine a laptop, other a netbook. The small screen size of 11.6' and a weight of 3.8lbs almost makes it look like a typical netbook. But most of the features that it has to offer are far superior than the netbook. So users who want their system to be small like the netbook but more powerful can certainly go for this system.
Official Rating: 3.8/5
Underline: Considerable power packed in the smallest device possible.

These days internet has become an invaluable resources for students. There’s no question that these days students can further their academic success by appropriate use of it.
But due to the sheer vastness of the Internet, finding relevant information can be a bit of a challenge as well as time consuming unless you know exactly what you’re looking for.
So here I present various resources of use to a student that I have come across.
The new home of Gigapedia, which hosted the biggest collection of e-books relating to any subject imaginable on the internet. It has always been of great help to me since one can find almost any textbook or solution manuals on it.
It also has novels, autobiographies. In short, if you need an e-book, this should be your first stop. The site requires registration to search for documents though. Most of the files are hosted on rapidshare, hotfile, ifile.it etc.
Free Ebook spot:
On the rare occasion when you cant find a specific ebook on Library.nu, chances are free ebook spot has it. Between these two sites, I have found almost every book and novel I have ever searched for.
Its an online project started by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, which is one of the most prestigious universities in the world.
Basically, selected courses (being offered at MIT) are available here. There are lecture notes, quizzes, their solutions and even videos of the lectures delivered in the class rooms.
Students can access all the content for free and without registration.
The principle is same as OCW offered by MIT, but the range of topics in the introductory courses available here, are related more to the arts.
Cramster is basically a community of students and professors etc, who offer help with studies. They have step by step solutions to many textbooks and there’s an community of experts who answer any questions you might have as well as guide you with your problems.
Catch is, its not free. You can register for free but free members get limited access to the resources, but in most cases its adequate, specially when coupled up with the above sites.
All Free Essays:
This site offers free access to thousands of essays, reports and papers written by students from all over the world.
Simple English Wikipedia:
No doubt Wikipedia is an invaluable source of information. But sometimes the language in which it is written can a bit too technical. Which makes it difficult to understand for people whose first language isn’t English.
So here’s the alternative. Simple English Wikipedia is the same as Wikpedia but all the articles are written in easy to understand English.
Khan Academy aims to be a world class education to anyone, anywhere and it does that by providing video lectures of thousands of topics from all subjects.
The quality of the lectures provided here is simply superb. An easy to understand approach is given to every topic. If you are having issues with any topic, specially from Mathematics and Physics, I highly recommend Khan Academy.
Dogpile lists all results from the four major search engines namely, Google, Bing, Yahoo! and Ask. So its a far more effective tool for finding relevant information. It has a ton of features including side by side comparison of search engines etc. Check it out for yourself.
OneNote is one of the best notetaking softwares I’ve come across for a long time. It has brilliant features like adding images, audio clip, free hand drawings etc to your notes. Its not free, but then again, we Pakistanis are not known for the massive profits we provide to the companies. For a free alternative check out EverNote. Its equally capable, if not better.
By the we recently did a list of must have iPhone apps for students. You can check the list here.
You are welcome to share links that you have found useful in the comments section.
