Planet X

Seems like we have found another neighbour in our solar system. A planet (or so they say) beyond and bigger than Pluto has been discovered by American scientists. However, this yet unnamed planet is still not confirmed as a planet of our neighbourhood.

Larger than Pluto and far beyond its orbit, shining so brightly an amateur stargazer could have spotted it years ago, there is a 10th planet, astronomers announced late Friday. Calling the still-unnamed world a planet likely will stir intense debate among some astronomers who argue that even tiny Pluto would not be called a planet were it discovered today.

Microsoft Windows Vista - The Official Name for Longhorn

The next slated release of Windows, popularly known by the code-name Longhorn, has finally been given an official launch name by Microsoft - Vista!

After being continuously delayed, it is now due in 2006, with the first Beta projected to be released 3rd August, targeted at developers and IT professionals.

This is the marketing tagline for Vista:
Clear, Confident, Connected: Bringing clarity to your world.

The new name 'Vista' doesn't appear to have had any good impression on people, judging by the posts at Neowin. Yet, it appears nice to me, and refreshing, specially after witnessing some of the wallpapers.

Irtiqa III video by EP

Entity Paradigm, EP for short, spurs out another offbeat video of another of their offbeat songs; Irtiqa III it is this time.

The video has a good concept, however the direction, by Xulfi, is not crisp and leaves a lot to be desired. The song itself is ranked quite high by some people (most EP fans), but when it comes to me Irtiqa III just doesn't click. It has too much of shouting! And whatever happened to the notion of melody!

The video features a person (or is the main character that toy bunny?) who is surrounded by lies, in the form of propaganda from the media (newspapers), and the military, the politicians, the mullahs, the philosophers trying to mould his mind and thoughts.

And in the end he breaks free of it, depicted through a similar visual as that of their website -- the guy holding hands up as the pigeon breaks free from somewhere.

All in all it's a different, albeit mediocre, video. It doesn't have a lasting value ... it will be off the channels soon. So catch it ASAP, currently Exclusively only on The Musik!
