One more thing...

... Is the Apple Watch. It is easily the best pieces of wrist watches that I have seen recently. It has most of things that I would want of a wearable device (http://tovganesh.blogspot.in/2013/09/it-is-not-calls-text-and-tweet-that.html), with one glaring exception: battery life. Looks like it is not going to be great (http://recode.net/2014/09/10/codered-apple-watch-battery-life-charge-nightly/).

Social Bus Spotter (Alpha) : crowd sourced bus running status

Usually public bus timetables in India are quite unpredictable. Most of the times you do no know when to expect a bus. Social Bus Spotter (alpha release), is the first step I am taking to make this information available in a easier way. The idea is to rely on all of you who travel daily via buses. Typically many of you have a smartphone. All you have to do is register a bus when you travel in one of the buses. This information is collected in the back end and then presented to others.

The app, in its alpha version is now published on the Google Play Store (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.busspotter). Use it, be responsible, spread the word about the app with hash tag #SocialBusSpotter on Twitter.



(Note 1: As the app is in early stages of development, expect frequent updates).
(Note 2: The app is currently only published in India and Israel Play stores, I will push to other markets as I keep improving the app).
