Threat from Government Official to Remove the Article about Finance Advisor, Shaukat Tareen

Posted by 18 February, 2009 (5) Comment

This is unusual! I received an email from a Government Official to remove the article about Finance Advisor, Shaukat Tareen on Feb 16 (Finance Advisor, Shaukat Tareen Using Non-Custom BMW) about the latest corruption case. Below is the screen shot of the email.

Email Screenshot

To the best of my knowledge, I have not written anything that could go against the national interest. I wrote what I saw on Media and they showed both the vehicles parked beside each other (Dunniya Tv) with the similar number plates. I have the right to write anything which in is the real interest on the country and I am not exploiting the democracy in Pakistan yet drive it to the right path.

Disclaimer:I am not sure that the email is from a ‘real government official’ as it is possible that someone used the wrong email address.

Smoke! But Keep Your Room Fresh – USB Ashtray Device

Posted by 17 February, 2009 Comments Off on Smoke! But Keep Your Room Fresh – USB Ashtray Device

USB Ashtray Picture

I am not encouraging you to smoke. It’s just a USB gadget that helps you to keep your room fresh. Most of the non-smokers usually get frustrated when they walk into a room filled with cigarette smoke. For non-smokers, it’s a perfect gadget to keep with them so, when a smoker friend is visiting them, they can use this device to keep the smoke away from themselves and their rooms.

The device vanishes the smoke with the help of a powerful motor fixed inside and the smoke is filtered by a built-in filter that releases fresh air from the holes on the side. 100% smoke free environment is not guaranteed because the device only works when the cigarette is put in but you can see a considerable change after using it.

One of the advantages of the USB Ashtray is that it can be used with or without the USB port as you can use four AA batteries to provide power.

PRICE: Approx. 4000/- ($49.95)

The item can be purchased from:  http://www.sundayo.com/htm/product.asp?id=455
