I am always an enthusiastic of the venerable 911 series. Look at the gorgeous appearance of 2008 Porsche 911 GT2. The fabulous 911 series will strike the market hopefully at the end of this year with this new model. In the occasion of it’s world debut at Frankfurt Motor Show 2007, the GT2 is claimed to be the most powerful 911 so far homologated for road use. Through its striking design with large air intakes at the front and the rear wing so characteristic of this very special model, the new 911 GT2 expresses the power and performance potential of the fastest-ever 911 right from the start even at a standstill. And what about the prices? Well… the base price of the car in Germany is Euro 159,100-, the market price including 19 per cent value-added tax Euro 189,496. Get ready for this new Gorgeous!

Prince of Persia: Disney's new Blockbuster?

Free Image Hosting

Who’ve not heard of Prince of Persia? I first played Prince of Persia while I was a student of class five. I played it one of my uncles house. It was my favourite game then. I am telling of such a tme when NFS series had not been launched. In 2003, when “Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time” was relesed, I just thrilled to see the graphics. Here is a short history about Prince of Persia (who does not know about it).

Debuted in 1989 for the Apple II, Prince of Persia was then quickly developed for IBM PCs, the Atari ST, Nintendo and Sega’s third-generation systems, and Game Boy. Sequels followed in the 1990s and in the fall of 2003, the franchise gained new life when Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time was made available on PlayStation 2, GameCube, Xbox, Game Boy Advance, and Windows computers. Subsequent adventures have premiered in the two following holiday seasons.

On the heels of their record-breaking Pirates of the Caribbean series, Walt Disney production is going to make films based on this block buster game.  From the title, it would appear that it would be based on merely 2003’s game and would be the first of three installments made. Originally pegged for a late 2008 release, this film — which will be directed by Michael Bay (Armageddon, The Rock, Transformers) — will now open July 10, 2009.

If it remains true to the video game, Sands of Time follows the Prince of Persia, his father King Sharaman, and the Maharajah’s daughter Princess Farah in a trek across India to Azad. Along their way, their potent, newly-acquired possesions (a giant hourglass full of sand and a mysterious dagger) make them the targets of a dying Vizier and his staff. Romantic relationships, time warps, and twisted allegiances all figure into what unravels and most of that is sure to translate to the type of sweeping, spectacle cinema that Bruckheimer has repeatedly relied on with success.

I dont know who’ll be in the Prince’s roll, but this movie will surely rock!

Fifth-generation Chevrolet Camaro as Bumblebee.

Bumblebee makes an appearance as one of the Autobots in the 2007 live-action movie Transformers. Instead of a VW Beetle, he is a Chevrolet Camaro in the movie. Due to a battle injury, he is rendered effectively mute, and communicates through use of selected playback of radio and television signals.

Free Image HostingMichael Bay stated in an early interview that Bumblebee stands about 17 feet tall. The official guide to the Transformers video game says he’s 16 feet tall. Bay insisted that Bumblebee be something other than a VW Beetle because it seemed too much like “Herbie the Love Bug” to him.

Producers settled on a 1977 model for first appearance of Bumblebee in the movie. It is painted yellow with black stripes, primer and rust patches, riveted hood scoop, Cragar SS wheels up front, Eric Vaughn Real Wheels in the back, marine-grade vinyl seats, and even an eight-track player. After the first fight with Barricade (Saleen Mustang police car), Bumblebee transform into a Fifth-generation Chevrolet Camaro. The Fifth-generation model was built using a 2006 Pontiac GTO by Saleen, the body was built from the same GM R&D molds that were used in the prototype 08/09 Camaros. Early photos show that Bumblebee can transform his right arm into an energy cannon, and has missile launchers in his shoulders.

Interview for a Signalman

Modon wanted a job as a signalman in the railways. So he went to the interview board.

The inspector in that board asked him this question: “What would you do if you saw 2 trains heading for each other on the SAME track?”
Modon said,” I would switch the points for one of the trains.”

What if the lever broke?”, asked the inspector.
“Then I’d dash down to the signal box”, said Modon. “And use the manual lever there.”

“What if lightning strucks it?”, asked the inspector.
“Then…” Modon continued, “I’d run back into signal box and phone the next signal box.”

“What if the phone was engaged?”
“Well…..in that case,” perservered Modon, ” I’d rush down out of the box and use the PUBLIC emergency phone at the level of the crossing up there…”

“What would you do if THAT was vandalized?”
“Oh, well then I’d run into the village and get my Uncle Mofiz.”

This puzzled the Inspector, so he asked, ” Why would you do that???”
“Because he’s never seen a train wreck !!”
