   Going APP Crazy !!!! The clock on my phone read 3 a.m.. I paused my game of Angry Birds and looked over at the pile of pending work on my desk, wondering why I had let myself get so distracted. Then I looked back down at my new wonderful, awesome, SMARTPHONE….. Oh yeah, that’s why……   What else has the proliferation of smart phones done besides make us all mobile- crazy? It’s also driven us   app crazy . And it’ s not just Facebook, Twitter or Angry Birds, either. We’re turning to  the humungous galaxy of apps to help us run our businesses , our projects , our household and what not. But for once I wont categorise this association in the group of a ‘downward whirlwind’ rather it s more like a heavy stroke of wind which sweeps you of your feet and lifts you to witness a complete new world.   While these apps are designed primarily for smartphones and tablets, the open and customizable nature of the operating system and the easy accessibility allows them to be used on most of the electronics gadgets.Well and who is complaining ??? Providing us with answer to almost every conceivable question of our daily life……………yeah they got everything sorted…….My favourite ones being QUICKBOOKS MOBILE   (Android, iPhone) and FRESHBOOKS-MINIBOOKS  help me create invoices, access study material and related data and manage annotations in a much more subtle and yet entertaining manner. But that’s not it there is a cake for every soul here….   Payment  processing apps like SQUARE or INTUITs’ GO PAYMENT make sales easier, allowing business owners to accept payments on the go, then there is the ICONOSYS TAX DEDUCTION TRACKER allowing a business owner to document tax-deductible items in real time.   TUNE WIKI lets users share what they’re listening to with each other, or to use Google Maps to find what users around the world are listening to. TuneWiki also plays audio and video for songs while scrolling synchronized lyrics as they play,  QUICKPEDIA  this is by far the best  Androidized Wikipedia application I’ve seen. Navigating and reading through the Wikipedia entries are simple thanks to Quick   pedia’s clean user interface, search suggestions, and GPS-informed searches for adventurous information-seekers …………the list is endless.  The magnum opus variety and the kind availability of these apps are attributed to the open source nature of these Android apps .   Open source means that the skeletal code of the Android app is known to everyone not just the Android app developers. There are forums that are open for the public where they can find the main code for the Android platform. Even the codes for other Android apps are available online. Being made to be open to the public the restrictions posed on Android app is very minimal. Therefore more developers are jump to induce more individualistic modifications to the Android OS. Hence I say its high time to actual get submerged in this crazy and sucking world of android……. But still promise to maintain the required  balance of life ….till then   I’ll probably still be on my Android, with a sling and a bird or checking the last Facebook update. In modern cars most of the car is made of polymers. A list of objects which are polymers in your car include: Tyres, Electrical wires, car seats (if not leather), carpets, all things plastic in the car (dash if not leather) and even in some cases the car itsself is made of plastic. A lot of modern cars outer shell consists of plastic  components. Plastic is easy to mould and easy to replace so is commonly found as your front or rear fender. easy way to tell if it is metal or plastic is to tap it. you can usually hear a difference between plastic and your metal components Polymer manufacturers develop novel solutions for the auto industry The future is plastic 21 April 2010 11:05 [Source: ICB] Carmakers are turning to polymer manufacturers to develop breakthrough solutions addressing the key drivers of reducing weight and cost Innovative plastics and composites are making inroads in automotive applications where metal has traditionally been used. The trend to replace metal is opening up a myriad of opportunities for polymer manufacturers, as it also allows designers to integrate functionality that may not have been possible with metal versions. Products are being developed for under-the-hood (UTH) applications that can withstand a hot and chemically aggressive environment, as well as for structural parts. There are fenders with online paintability, as well as a new generation polymers that have high heat and chemical resistance over longer periods of time. US chemical giant DuPont has a new family of polyamide grades for UTH applications. France's Rhodia has a range of polyamides with long-term barrier resistance and is also developing a breakthrough thermoplastic-based material that it expects to present at Germany's K trade fair in October.  Polycarbonate (PC) use in front windshields remains a development focus. SABIC Innovative Plastics of the US has a plasma coating for PC that improves scratch resistance and helps to address industry concerns regarding resistance to wiper abrasion. Stephen Shuler, chief technology officer of SABIC Innovative Plastics' wholly owned subsidiary Exatec says that it has expanded its team in Bangalore, India, to study how abrasion occurs. Shuler says PC has big advantages in terms of styling and aerodynamic qualities, as well as saving weight. There is a big opportunity in back lights, side windows, and roofs, which have seen a lot of activity. Green materials are another focus. DuPont says that several automotive srcinal equipment manufacturers (OEMs) aim to incorporate biopolymers and, in some cases, specific eco-friendly car lines will be developed. It predicts that biopolymers' share in automotive will steadily rise, but will still remain low in the short term, compared with petroleum-based polymers. SABIC Innovative Plastics has introduced polybutylene terephthalate (PBT) iQ grades derived from 85% post-consumer polyethylene terephthalate (PET) through a novel technology that upcycles solid waste. Venkatakrish Umamaheswaran, director of marketing, engineering and technology, automotive, says this is very popular as it allows carmakers to reduce their carbon footprint. Rhodia has developed two ranges, based on bio-sourced and recycled materials. Last year, it launched a polyamide based on polyamide 610, partially made from castor oil.
