DMC : Devil May Cry 5

DMC is back after a very long hiatus.

This looks like a prequel to all the previous DMC Versions.

The Death of a Software

I remember vividly how excited i was when I downloaded the free Microsoft Reader Software somewhere around 2006 from Microsoft website.The .LIT Format simply was just too easy to read in a PC and the text to speech engine also enabled for a joyous reading session of any novel. Almost like an audio book.The Microsoft Reader is the closest substitute for me for the huge collection of paperback novels which I used to read in my school vacations.
I was really sad to see this notification in Microsoft Website.
Microsoft has discontinued Microsoft Reader effective August 30,2012 which includes download access and activation of Microsoft reader from the Microsoft Reader website.However, customers may continue to use and access the Microsoft Reader application and any .lit materials on their PCs or devices.New content for purchase from retailers in the .lit format was discontinued on November 8,2011.
Thank God Atleast they are not completely deactivating the software but the very fact that they have decided to discontinue the project is bad for me.I would take .LIT format anyday over the .EPUB format.
I can see that Amazon rules the ebook space but still Microsoft could have made a foray on the same by releasing more books in LIT format with some more exciting speech engines to enhance the reading experience. Why waste a totally good investment in a wonderful software. Hopefully they will come back with a enhanced ebook reader some time in the future. Till then I will miss you Microsoft reader :(.

Celtics defense is Back

I remember the Christmas Game in which the Boston Celtics crushed the Brooklyn Nets with some stifling defense.Now with the return of Avery Bradley their backcourt defense is the best on the league. They restricted the Nets to just 76 points for the game and today, they didnt let the team with the best defense in the league :Indiana Pacers to get any type of offense and the match was over at the start of the 4th Quarter.KG,Pierce and Rondo didnt play much of the 4th Quarter.Pacers couldnt make more than 75 points Now thats impressive!!!
Celtics are now dead last in the playoff positions in the Eastern Conference but they would ideally like to be around 4th or 5th so that they can make a deep run in the playoffs later this year. But for that to happen they need Avery Bradley to be healthy and Rondo to maintain his form.
