The BOSE Quietcomfort 15 – a quick review

with 3 comments

This is one of the best headphones reviewed over the Internet. I personally visited the BOSE stores to gauge the effectiveness and it is a blessing for frequent travelers!

Some pictures of my BOSE QC 15 are below. I would post a detailed review shortly on my personal experiences with this gadget over next few months. Yes at Rs. 17.5K it does not come cheap but then BOSE quality is well renowned. I would have gone in for a BOSE home entertainment system itself 6 months ago itself but my reviews favored ONKYO and I am not disappointed with the quality of my ONKYO home theater so far. It’s a boon for my family who can now watch a High Def movie right from the comforts of their living room and of course for me too!

1. First, get over this obsession of Google adsense. 99/100 bloggers I meet first think of making a quick buck on adsense rather than focus on quality of their blogs and its relevance towards the topic(s) chosen! This is really very disturbing statistics. Read the rest of this entry »

The economics of the Airbus A380

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Airbus_A380 

The Airbus A380 is the largest aircraft to take to the skies for passenger traffic. It can carry almost 550+ passengers and has a maximum range of 15000 kms crusing at a speed of Mach 0.85.

It is the world’s first double decker aircraft and is powered by four Rolls Royce Trent engines.

Given all this, let us take a sneak peek into the economics of running this mammoth piece of machinery in the skies and yet keep the parent company i.e. Airbus profitable. Read the rest of this entry »
