Google search engine stores in its database whatever users around the world types in it. which goes to show majority of internet users around the world who happen to access Google.com is uneducated about the locality of countries like Pakistan or Bangladesh

For all that peace out, why the hate son? These are just appliances. You pick the one that meets your needs and if that makes you happy, so be it. Whether an iPad, a Samsung Galaxy Tab, the Dell Streak7 or even the Dunder-Mifflin - we don't care what you get, as long as it suits your needs.

Lol. I just love how people hate Apple just because. It's their lose, they are missing out.

All these so called "better things" came out AFTER Apple invented them. Those are improved (debatable) upon Apple's work.

APPLE = VISIONARY. They make the ways.

The Apple-hate hardly ever has anything to do with the Apple products or their quality. It's because of their "tagline," the rich, spoiled owners. Hey, they can afford to buy it, so why hate them? I.e so it also the jealousy.

I'm not rich. I haven't stacked myself with Apple. I just had couple of iPods (very first one, and a Nano) and a Mac.

I use it for connivance not as luxury.

Dilscoop, have you watched the Comedy Central Roasts?! The ones of Donald Trump, Shatner, Pamela Anderson...most of them really are hilarious! I'd share a video in the funny youtube videos thread but the content is a bit (im)mature for a PG forum.

^^ The review is not very illuminating. Can't tell if it'll be any better than some of the dross that Arvind Adiga produces.

I just came across that book. By the way did you see the TV show, White Teeth? Apparently they did good job and have somewhat famous cast and recognition. Om Puri plays a Bangladeshi man and the story revolves around his sons and a Caribbean family.

But even without reading it I have a feeling this is how the reception of the book will go:-

There will be mixed reviews and some people will raise a ruckus about the fact that the author is gay, that his husband is of Bangladeshi-origin and that somehow prejudices the quality of the book. This will in turn cause a backlash among more liberal minded folk in BD and abroad. The readership being polarized, mudslinging will start, the media will intervene, author interviews will ensue and of course, copies of the book will be flying off the shelves. Before we can say Taslima Nasreen, the book will become more famous than its literary merit may/may not deserve.

Haven't seen the show, but have read the book by Zadie Smith. Her description of Bangladesh, while apt when describing the situation of the 1970s, is outdated and misleading. Despite her talents as a writer, those parts of the book annoyed me immensely. As if we don't get enough negative publicity.

Answer - The ques­tion has noth­ing to do with math­e­mat­ics. Look for the closed loops or shapes in each num­ber and count them. In 0, 6, 8 and 9. 8 has two of them. 2581 has two. The answer is 2.
