    Car & Bike Chevy Beat vs Honda Brio

    So I'm in the market for a hatchback. Have narrowed my choices down to the Beat and the Brio. Considering that I'm 6 ft tall, I find it slightly uncomfortable to get in and out of both cars. That factor apart, how would you rate the two cars with respect to: 1) Mileage in the city 2) Service...

    Suggest a home Inverter/UPS

    This is a detailed post so please bear with me. We used to have a 850VA pure sine wave inverter with an Exide 150AH Tubular battery which conked off a couple of months ago. With the old setup, we could run 3 fans, 2-3 tubelights and a 40" LED TV for about 2-2.5 hours without issues. Also, my...

    The two most popular eBook stores (Amazon and Apple's iBook) have a non existent collection for people outside the US. iBooks has only classics and that too very few. Is there any other eBook store that has an app for the iPad and has a good collection of books? One I've come across is Kobo...
