iPod ships individually from China!

I recently ordered my iPod Mini and was surprised when looking at the shipment tracking details at FedEx. The shipment originated in Shenzhen, China. I knew that lot of manufacturing happens in China for majority of US products, but was surprised that they are being individually shipped. Rather, I expected a bulk shipment to US warehouses.

Why does it do so? It amazes me. I thought this was the costlier option.

The Drift

Recently watched "The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift". It was great. Drift sequences were awesome. It was a good balance of action and storyline. It didn't feel like too much action nor it felt like we are not having action.

DVD features included some real life sequences from real life Drift King Keiichi Tsuchiya. This a new learning experience for me to see how do they do it in real life.

Bollywood in Hollywood

I was watching Inside Man day before yesterday and was pleasantly surprised in its end... There was chhaiyya chhaiyya, a bollywood song and dance number from Dil Se, playing with original music with partial english lyrics thrown in.

I don't think I have seen any other hollywood movie that is using a bollywood number from a bollywood movie keeping original lyrics and music.

Have you?
