Summer Solstice

The longest day of daylight each year in the Northern Hemisphere is AROUND JUNE 21

On the summer solstice in the Northern Hemisphere, sunlight hitting the Tropic of Cancer is perpendicular to the earth's surface.

Pagans and Wiccans gather at the solstice to honor the sun and to dedicate their service to the earth. But many solstice revelers use the extra hours of sunlight as an excuse to party. According to an article in The Guardian, the Wiltshire police are bringing horses, drug sniffing dogs and an unmanned drone to control the 30,000 people expected to descend upon the ancient ruins. The article goes on to say that “peace-loving” Druids are taking their celebrations elsewhere to avoid the unruly throngs.

Web 2.0 crowned the 'millionth English word'

I read an interesting news that a US-based language monitoring group crowned Web 2.0 as the one millionth word or phrase in the English language.

The Global Language Monitor, which uses a math formula to track the frequency of words and phrases in print and electronic media, said Web 2.0 appeared over 25 000 times in searches and was widely accepted, making it the legitimate, one millionth word.

There is some controversy among the linguists, but surely Web 20.0 is becoming a widely used phrase, especially on the Internet.

Good Sales for Wireless Networks Smartphones

In today's difficult economy, people are still spending a lot for smartphones, even if sales are expected to fall for cellphones.

Sales of BlackBerrys, iPhones and other smartphone models are rising smartly and are projected to increase 25 percent this year, according to Gartner, a research business.

That is certainly a message the wireless industry would like to reinforce. “Smartphones are seen as essential to be productive in a mobile society,” said David Christopher, chief marketing officer at AT&T’s wireless division.

The smartphone wave, industry analysts say, should continue to build. There is ample room for gains because, smartphone sales will still account for only a quarter of total cellphone shipments in the United States this year. And along with the Palm Pre, many new smartphone handset and software offerings are coming this year, from Apple, R.I.M., Nokia, Microsoft, Google and others.

However some experts complain that there’s a big gap between the services offered by wireless carriers and what’s available on consumer desktops. AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile offer little, if anything, beyond address book syncing.
