Brains Storming

Scene 1:

AP1: So, what do you do for a living?
Me: I'm a software engineer
AP1: You work at Infosys?
Me: No, I work at HP
AP1: Hindustan Petroleum? Then you must be getting free petrol??
Me: Err... no - HP = Hewlett Packard
AP1: Ah - accha. Which division do you work in? I know many people there!
Me: Its called storage labs
AP1: Oh - the place where they store raw materials??
Me: Close! Our job is to write code for the refrigerator of the cold storage!

Scene 2:

AP2: We need revolutionary change in operating systems
Me: (YAWN)
AP2: You know... more intelligence. It must do more for its users
Me: You said something?!
AP2: It should adapt to different users' usage dynamically
Me: Say what??
AP2: Lets say a user is tired. The OS can get to know this by his/her typing speed. So, it can start playing a soothing song for the user! Howzzat?!
Me: The user could be having breakfast and typing with one hand!
AP2: Err... ya. And like, the OS should be able to locate and install drivers for any kind of devices. All on-the-fly. User need not worry about what he's plugging in!
Me: So, I can plug in my microwave oven and download the pizza as a jpeg image! Cool!!
AP2: Don't joke! What if the OS could switch the computer on by the voice command of the user?? Then the user won't have the risk of any electric shocks during switching on the computer!
Me: Have'nt you patented this yet?!

Scene 3:

AP3: I'm new to the software field and I want to learn about linux badly!
Me: Another brick in the wall
AP3: So,do you think it is wise to install both windows and linux on my system?
Me: Your "system"??
AP3: Yeah, my desktop
Me: Ah, yes - I thought you meant something else!
AP3: What do you think?
Me: Let me ask you something. I'm really new to this world. Do you think its wise if I marry both Pooja and Dooja?!

Anyone has more such stuff to say?! :D

PS:
Someone stop me from drinking too much Irish coffee. It leads to a surge in boredom(and creativity perhaps??)!

  5. "AP2: Lets say a user is tired. The OS can get to know this by his/her typing speed." ... this must have been patented by now, was presented by my senior (officially vinay's senior from Kannadiga land :D )for a technical symposium.


    I knew something was wrong with the way I handled stuff... I have a dual boot system and I'm kinda playing the outfield too... definitely not so "wise" now looking at ur post ;)


    p.s
    AP4:Hey who was it from Ireland who was creative??

    Me:I know - Nobody :)
