Scroll Down for lyrics

In the cubicles representin’ for my JAVA homies…
In by nine, out when the deadlines are met, check it.

We code hard in these cubicles
My style’s nerd-chic, I’m a programmin’ freak
We code hard in these cubicles
Only two hours to your deadline? Don’t sweat my technique.

Sippin’ morning coffee with that JAVA swirl.
Born to code; my first words were “Hello World”
Since 95, been JAVA codin’ stayin’ proud
Started on floppy disks, now we take it to the cloud.

On my desktop, JAVA’s what’s bobbin’ and weavin’
We got another winning app before I get to OddEven.
Blazin’ code like a forest fire, climbin’ a tree
Setting standards like I Triple E….

Boot it on up, I use the force like Luke,
Got so much love for my homeboy Duke.
GNU Public Licensed, it’s open source,
Stop by my desk when you need a crash course

Written once and my script runs anywhere,
Straight thuggin’, mean muggin’ in my Aeron chair.
All the best lines of code, you know I wrote ‘em
I’ll run you out of town on your dial-up modem.

We code hard in these cubicles
Me and my crew code hyphy hardcore
We code hard in these cubicles
It’s been more than 10 years since I’ve seen the 404.

Inheriting a project can make me go beeee-serk
Ain’t got four hours to transfer their Framework.
The cleaners killed the lights, Man, that ain’t nice,
Gonna knock this program out, just like Kimbo Slice

I program all night, just like a champ,
Look alive under this IKEA lamp.
I code HARDER in the midnight hour,
E7 on the vending machine fuels my power.

Ps3 to Smartphones, our code use never ends,
JAVA’s there when I beat you in “Words with Friends”.
My developing skills are so fresh please discuss,
You better step your game up on that C++.

We know better than to use Dot N-E-T,
Even Dan Brown can’t code as hard as me.
You know JAVA’s gettin’ bigger, that’s a promise not a threat,
Let me code it on your brain

so you’ll never forget.

We code hard in these cubicles,
it’s the core component…of what we implement.
We code hard in these cubicles,
Straight to your JAVA Runtime Environment.

We code hard in these cubicles,
Keep the syntax light and the algorithm tight.
We code hard in these cubicles,
Gotta use JAVA if it’s gonna run right.

We code hard in these cubicles
JAVA keeps adapting, you know it’s built to last.
We code hard in these cubicles,
Robust and secure, so our swag’s on blast

Blackberry torch 9860 review

BlackBerry Torch 9860

BlackBerry has introduced many models in the market and the latest one is the Black Berry torch 9860 which is very helpful in browsing as well as in the media field. The 3.7 inch touch screen is amazing and has more space due to which it becomes easy to view web as well as screen space. It also has a highest resolution with 480 x 480 displayed pixels. The displayed images in this model are bright and clear.

BlackBerry Torch 9860

The measurement of the device is 4.7″ (l) x 2.4″ (w) x 0.5″ (d), and weighs around 135 grams. If compared with other models the Black Berry torch 9860 is little bigger because of its large bezel. The front panel is all sleek and the metallic back with rubber grip looks elegant. The buttons below the screen are well spaced. It is powered by a single-core 1.2GHz processor which is a plus point as single-core processor never does any harm. And since the BlackBerry Torch 9860 doesn’t deal with HD 1080p video like many other phones do, it is doubtful whether it will get along with a single-core CPU for now. It has 4GB of on-board storage. There is a provision to add up to 32GB more storage through the microSD card slot, which is handy if you want to shoot more videos with the 720p HD recording. The video player supports MP4, DivX, XviD and WMV videos up to 720 p. The video playback is smooth and can be saved for future viewing.  The back of BlackBerry Torch 9860 has a 5MP camera’s lens, and the LED flash.

The design of the BlackBerry Torch 9860 is somewhat like RIM’s range and Samsung’s Galaxy line. It’s quite appealing.  The keys are easy to press and the 3.5mm jack is also on the side, which people may not like and prefer to be on top or bottom.  The phone is comfortable to hold due to its shape and metal back plate with matt feel.  The sound quality is also good for your ears.

What to expect from Nokia Gem?

The concept like Nokia Gem is an All-Touch-Screen phone that changes every time you use a different function. This concept was pioneered by Mr. Jarkko Saunamaki who is senior design manager in Nokia and though it will a long wait before we find this phone in market, the company pointed it out that this phone is a proof that they are committed  towards development of game-changing technologies. Both the designers Wenhing Chu & Kok Keong Wong have previewed a futuristic transparent touch phone with twin-splitting displays on design blog Yanko Design in September.

nokia gem

This Finland based company which manufactures handsets, has introduced a brand new smartphone on the eve of the silver anniversary of the research center of Nokia. Its entire body will act as a touch screen. Nokia Gem is like a priceless stones as because just like the precious stones which have many sides, the front and the back and the obvious sides in the phone works as an interactive display. These displays change, according to whatever application you will be using at that time. For example suppose you are using an app for navigation on this cell phone, you can see a map showing overview on one side and then turn it over to check out the more detailed map about your present position in the city. In the video mode, another instance has been shown where the girl clicks a photo. Then she uses the touch-screen feature of cell phone to wrap that complete image around the phone as wallpaper. As there are no such things as buttons on this phone, so gestures and actions are used to use apps, for example you draw a circle to use the camera app.

The most important feature is the technology which Nokia Gem uses to interact with various other cell phones. Now suppose you use an application on this phone. Let us suppose that you use the camera; when you do so, still your mobile phone will look like a cell phone. But with Nokia Gem, when you use the camera function, the whole phone will look like a camera. Then you can see one wrapped image around the camera, just like you saw in that cool video where the lady clicks some wallpaper and then uses it as the art for her own cell phone casing. No default appearance will find with it.

Games lovers will generally find that it looks a lot like, for example, a gaming pad. It is called Nokia Gem because just like the polished precious stones which have many sides, it also has many sides. This phone would be also able to display images in 3D as it allows view from all possible angles. But according to Jarkko, the most important use of this phone would be the interaction between its various sides and its ever changing appearance. This new mobile phone is a concept phone which utilizes the entire device.
