Year 2000s turn 18 – New Year 2018

Lots of ups and downs happened this year as well. Unlike other times, this time, I lazed at home and waiting for Monday office tomorrow, 01st January, 2018.

As clock ticks 12:00 tonight, the year 2000s turn adult. Z(er(o)ne)A has upgraded itself to avxio. Watching movie on TV and no special shows. Let’s put all laziness behind in 2017 and be active, fit and healthy in 2018.

Wishing you all a prosperous Happy New Year – 2018.

New Blog – AVXIO

ZeroneA started with a unique concept of bringing in Zero to One (0987654321 – check your keyboard) and Z-A (the reverse alphabetical order). It suffered from one unique flaw, it was referred as Zee-roh-nee-ah instead of Zero-One-A.  Identity crisis it was. All wasn’t wrong in world of ZeroneA, considering how easy it was to refer it :).

The Reverse Way tag of ZeroneA will stay and may be used for other purposes, in future but till then ZeroneA has a new home: AVXIO. It doesn’t solve any problems but at least it’ll (hopefully) always be pronounced A-V-X-I-O. It still has an identity crisis. The I-O is actually 1 & 0. The obsession of ones and zeros continues.

AVXIO (or simply avxio), sums all things Audio, Video, Analog, Digital. Hence, the tag line – Audio, Video, Bits & Waves.

Ok! One more time

I’ve been missing again, mostly from here. This post coming after over 4 months since Happy New Year 2017.

Where I’ve been? Mostly sleeping, little to none activity.

Why? There’s no particular reason and best I can come up with is was busy with office work. When had free time, played some mobile games (“Clash Royale”). Almost killed this blog due to a stupid mistake. Rebuilt it from scratch and it still looks like $#*+

Now what? I don’t know. Maybe that age old line from me, I’ll try to be regular.
I’ll be back.

Happy New Year 2017

Another year passed with several ups and downs. 2016 has come to a passe now but it has touched everyone be it in or out of India.

Demonetization had been the talk of the nation at its fag end, many supported and some did not stop at politicizing it and there were some trying to take advantage. As we enter 2017, hope to have one less thing to worry (carrying currency notes) and make transactions via plastic money or online. Lets enter new year with more point of sale machine & people, banks and shopkeepers keep aside their tax saving ideas aside and adopt this change to make India great again.

Wish you all of you and your near and dear ones a very Happy New Year 2017 and no one to struggle for cash.

Music to the ears

I’ve always preferred good sound. This is one of key reasons I can’t bear the sight (read sound) of those shaky camrips. And, when this is combined with taste is music, it becomes quite tricky. I’ve recently got Audio Technica ATH-M50x Matte Gray (Limited Edition) and the moment I put it on, I was like – Wow! These are epic. They are actually cheaper than my current existing set of earphones/headphones. In the past I’ve owned some decent earphones/headphones but there are some memorable ones.
