    There has been a picture doing the rounds on FB claiming that Petrol is Rs. 26 / lt in Pakistan and Rs. 22 / lt in Bangladesh and so on. There have been a multitude of "Ayes" and "Nays" as with any other FB topic. I decided to see if I can find some authentic source for Petrol prices world wide and I found this.

    Gasoline Prices around the Globe

    If this is true, then I am migrating to Venezuela. Anyone seen this before?

    Ridiculously huge oil reserves + socialist economy help in keeping prices low. ;)

    You will surely find some classic American Muscle cars with the old big block V8's roaming around there. I read an article about this a few years back. Cheap gas helps fuel people's passion for these gas guzzlers there.

    Venezuela was the onlycountry where Toyota kept on building it's 80 series Landcruiser (FZJ80) with the 1FZ-FE (4.5 litre straight six petrol) till 2006 or 2008. Cheap gas for the win! The 80 series was phased out worldwide in 1999-2000 or so.

    Today saw a incident on NH 4 while coming from pune ,it was almost 70 km away from pune ,it was slightly raining.On highway one family against a one man in Hyundai i20 owner were fighting.i slowed down and found that i think it was Hyundai accent in open ground with wheel fender damaged and scratches on the car with all tensed.This Hyundai guy was alone found that it has left tire burst his left front wheel fender got damaged.
    Its for sure there was nothing wrong in Hyundai i20 owner' driver.it was a tire burst case.
    The time for both of them was not good.
    P.S - Pity for Hyundai i20 owner.Thank god all were safe.

    I have many instances of turbo failure in less than 3yrs than fuel pump. FUel pump depends on the quality of fuel used in it.

    But turbo failure is inevitable.

    Guys - how many of you have seen this beauty from Caterpiller? - Cat B15 - one of the - no, let me correct myself - THE toughest android touch phone.


    (Image from Mobilport)

    To borrow words from ‘The Register’ who did a review of this, the phone can withstand a drop from a third floor window, can be driven over by your car, can be immersed in water for overnight and if that is not all, can be dunked in beer and can still work without any issues.

    The phone get stock Android 4.1.2 running on a 1GHz dual-core MediaTek MT6577 Cortex A-9 SoC; a 4-inch, 480 x 800 screen; 5MP and 0.3MP cameras; and a 2000mAh battery and according to me, the best part is – the phone do not cost a bomb. It can be all yours for just 350 USD.

    I came across this when I was doing research to upgrade my current mobile – my prime choices where between Nexus 4 or Moto X but now I am seriously thinking of getting a CAT 15. The flipside I see are the 512 mb ram and almost nonexistent support from the android developer community for custom ROM \ hacks
    Any ways, I am waiting to see if the falling rupee rates will stabilize and to see how much a Moto X (GPE) will cost – then I will decide which one to get. But to tell the truth, B15 pulls my heart strings a lot ;)
