Yes, just a couple of days back Chetan Bhagat announced his 5th Book, Revolution 2020 and pre-order has already started on Flipkart. The book is slated to be released in October 2011 and you can be among the first people to receive a copy. The book is also available at a discounted rate of Rs. 80.

Revolution 2020 – Chetan Bhagat’s New Book

Chetan Bhagat, one of India’s most popular authors and among 100 most influential people according to TIME magazine announced his 5th Book today at 11am.

As opposed to what everyone was guessing that after Five Point Someone, One Night At Call Centre, 3 Mistakes of My Life and 2 States – the 5th book’s name will definitely have the numerical 4 (four) in it – the next book is titled – Revolution 2020 with the tagline ‘Love Corruption Ambition’.

Are you disappointed? Well, frankly I am a little. Was expecting a more interesting and creative name. I know some of you might be thinking, looking at the names of Chetan’s last 3 books, that how could I actually expect something like that. But frankly I did…

Do you run an Ad-free Blog?

The irony of this blog post is that ewebbuddy.com is not an ad-free blog but still since I am always up to spread awareness about great things, this blog is being posted.

Blogging to many is still a very personal thing. People write their thoughts, views, ideas and share with the world via blog posts. I have come across so many bloggers via Indiblogger.in who are passionate about blogging and they do it only for the love of it. If you are one of those, read on…

Though there are many professional bloggers todaAdd an Imagey and those who earn quite a lot of money from blogs like problogger, blogging is still used primarily as a non-profit medium of spread ideas, thoughts and what not. Many bloggers do not like to add advertisements to their sites or getting paid to promote something. They share their experiences because they want to and not because they are told to.  Among such people are Kerismith and Jeff Pitcher. These two individuals have started a movement to mark blogs that do not post any sort of ads as ‘Ad-free Blog‘. By simply adding a small image on your site you can tell your users that your blog is ad-free and they will definitely appreciate it. Many users do not like to be shown advertisements on blogs even if it is a small text-based ad. Tell such users that you believe in what they believe as well and earn their love.

Someone has rightly said – “Small things go a long way!” – who knows this small addition takes you somewhere great. Also you deserve to feel proud if your blog does not advertise.

How to add the icon?

Well you need be a person ready to agree to the following:

By using this icon on my website I am stating…

1. That I am opposed to the use of corporate advertising on blogs.

2. That I feel the use of corporate advertising on blogs devalues the medium.

3. That I do not accept money in return for advertising space on my blog.

Clip-on Sunglasses for Sun and Fun – SunClipies.com

Isn’t it HOT? Summer’s in and it is so very HOT. I hardly move around outside, but when I do, not without by Sunglasses. Ok, I may sound a little girlie here but its a fact that I cannot bear the heat. Period.

So well among the many things that Summer made me buy included Sunglasses. That further led me to research on them. (Google Lover I am!) And during that research I came across Sunclipies.com! Though I was upset that I will not be able to use this cool service, after the success of the post on Zenni Opticals I thought this might be useful for my friends on ewebbuddy. So here it is…

What sort of Sunglasses am I talking about here?

Well these seem quite fun and all those who swear that they are fashionable to core would love these. Now wouldn’t they want Sunglasses to match with every one of their outfits? This sunglasses is for those who would love to try out different color lenses sticking the same frame.

Sunclipies are Clip-on Sunglasses that enables anyone to change lenses of their sunglasses effortlessly. You can have the different colored lenses designed to fit the rim of your eyeglasses and use them as desired.

Furthermore, the site claims these lenses to be

0 weight“. No magnets. Full UV-protection. Extremely small and flat to carry.

Who are the people behind Sunclipies?

Well, according to the website Sunclipies came into being in 2006. Its team includes some engineers and programmers from the Aircraft & Automotive industry. I would surely like to know how they came up to the conclusion of changing industries so drastically.

But I also think, its their exposure to the Aircraft Industry makes it possible for them to deliver lenses with the correct specification and quality mark with precision.

How to get these lenses made?

Well the site provides an easy 2-step guide on how you can send the specifications and get the lenses designed to fit your eyeglasses. You can find it here: http://www.sunclipies.com/how-to-do-it

So, go ahead explore these glasses specially if you are in USA, Germany and Switzerland. The site does mention many satisfied customers and some very impressive feedback, but if you have ever or will try them. Do leave a word here. 🙂
