I am really sorry for posting this late… So i thought i can briefly describe the problem i had with my Iphone on charging…… Hope it will help you…
I bought a 3G – IPhone which is Unlocked and JailBroken.. Every thing was good with the IPhone for 2 weeks after which i got a trouble..
My Phone was not charging more than 20 percent.. I was totally schoked..
So i tried Googling and found a method of Soft Reset (i.e by pressing lock button and the main button for few seconds and resetting)..
I even tried that 4-5 times but nothing seems to be working out…
Then i found another solution by charging it with the PC. so i tried connecting it to my Laptop and charged it…
This time it worked… but it was charging only till 90 percent (a increse of 70%), i was a bit happy that it charged till 90%.. and the dollars din’t go in Vain.. I tried this 3- 4 times… every time it was charging till 90%…
But if the battery becomes low and if i started charging with my wall charger it will charge only 20%
So i started thinking, i will have to depend on my laptop to use my phone…
I can say it as a Miracle day… i charged my Iphone using my laptop as usual and kept it… but that night i was planning to go to my friend’s home… so i thought let me charge my phone before going to his home..
I saw the charge level of battery was 60+% and i connected with my wall charger …. just for a try …. 🙂
but to my surprise it started charging and charged till 100% (i was really excited and thanked god a lot)…
After that i never had a problem with charging…. Now i am happy with my IPhone… If you find this useful please do post your comments…
A little boy went to a telephone booth which was at the cash counter of a store and dialed a number. The store-owner observed and listened to the conversation:
Boy : Lady, can you give me the job of cutting your lawn?
Woman : “I already have someone to cut my lawn.”
Boy : Lady, I will cut your lawn for half the price than the person who cuts your lawn now.
Woman : I’m very satisfied with the person who is presently cutting my lawn.
Boy : (with more perseverance) Lady, I’ll even sweep the floor and the stairs of your house for free.
Woman : No, thank you.
With a smile on his face, the little boy replaced the receiver. The store-owner, who was listening to all this, walked over to the boy and said –
Store Owner : “Son… I like your attitude; I like that positive spirit and would like to offer you a job.”
Boy : “No thanks.
Store Owner : But you were really pleading for one.
Boy : No Sir, I was just checking my performance at the job I already have. I am the one who is working for that lady I was talking to!”
This is what we call “Self Appraisal”.

It was a hot day in Chennai as sun was piercing through the glass buildings of the IT Company. Employees were swarming in and after their regular duty of swipe-in, they all marched towards the otherwise-quiet Food Court.
Amidst the crowd and the noises of recorded voice announcing the token numbers, Raja was doing his duties diligently. He was a man in his early thirties and was wearing his usual Blue & White uniform. Though the ambience was colorful, he had no other option. Yes, he was one of the Housekeepers. An example of his perfection in duty is that after he cleans the floor, one can see his/her reflection on it. His other jobs include cleaning the tables & chairs, mopping the floor, washing water glasses etc. And once the breakfast schedule is over, he will move chairs and tables to the corner of the food court using a mini-fork-lift.
Despite his job being so regular & monotonous, there was a peculiar joy with which he worked; He loved his job, worshipped his duty.
However, money was his constraint always. Having two children to raise and to run a family in Chennai with this meager income is no joke. But still he never vents his personal emotions on his work.
Now he had moved all those furniture’s safely by making several rounds on his mini-fork-lift. So he too went to a corner and opened his Tiffin-box, which his wife packs for him. Though he has many friends, he likes to sit alone. While munching his food, he was thinking about the morning events which happened in his house.
Just like any other day, he had woken up early morning and got ready for office briskly. Before leaving, he usually hugs his 6-year old son, who would be sleeping innocently on his bed.
But that particular day, the child was awake. He pulled his dad’s shirt and shied away on to bed. Raja was bit puzzled at his son’s reaction and enquired him what was the matter. The innocent kid replied to him saying he wanted a cake – that too full size. Raja was quite surprised. He did not know that his son had seen his neighbors’ birthday celebration and was attracted to it.
Though it was month-end and Raja was running his family on temporary loans, he did not show any negative reaction to his child. He just promised the kid he will bring home a party cake that very evening and left for office.
Suddenly some voices were heard and Raja returned to his senses. A mini crowd of around 10 people had gathered at a table few yards away from where Raja was sitting. They were fluently speaking in English and pranking jokes at each other. It seemed they had flocked for celebrating their colleague’s birthday. In next few minutes, the birthday boy’s face was fully drenched with cake and snaps were taken from various angles. After spending some more time, the group left the place.
Closing his Tiffin box, Raja washed his hands and immediately took his broom and the mop-stick in his hands. He not just cleaned the cake pieces and the cream spilled all over the floor and the table but also the tears flowing from his eyes.
This is very interesting……….(to women) pls take time to ponder……..(to men) enjoy the story……..
Young King Arthur was ambushed and imprisoned by the monarch of a neighboring kingdom. The monarch could have killed him but was moved by Arthur’s youth and ideals. So, the monarch offered him his freedom, as long as he could answer a very difficult question. Arthur would have a year to figure out the answer and, If after a year, he still had no answer, he would be put to death. The question was: What do women really want? Such a question would perplex even the most knowledgeable man, And to young Arthur, it seemed an impossible query.. But, since it was better than death, He accepted the monarch’s proposition to have an answer by year’s end.
He returned to his kingdom and began to poll everyone: The princess, the priests, the wise men, and even the court jester. He spoke with everyone, but no one could give him a satisfactory answer. Many people advised him to consult the old witch, For only she would have the answer. But the price would be high as the witch was famous through out the kingdom for the exorbitant prices she charged. The last day of the year arrived and Arthur had no choice but to talk to the witch. She agreed to answer the question, but he would have to agree to her price first.
The old witch wanted to marry Sir Lancelot, The most noble of the Knights of the Round Table, And Arthur’s closest friend! Young Arthur was horrified. She was hunch-backed and hideous, had only one tooth, Smelled like sewage, made obscene noises, etc. He had never encountered such a repugnant creature in all his life. He refused to force his friend to marry her and endure such a terrible burden, But Lancelot, having learnt of the proposal, spoke with Arthur. He said nothing was too big of a sacrifice compared to Arthur’s life.. And the reservation of the Round Table. Hence, a wedding was proclaimed and the witch answered. Arthur’s question thus: “What a woman really wants?”
She said, “Is to be in charge of her own life.”
Everyone in the kingdom instantly knew that the witch had uttered a great truth. And that Arthur’s life would be spared.
And so it was. The neighboring monarch granted Arthur his freedom. And Lancelot and the witch had a wonderful wedding.
The honeymoon hour approached and, Lancelot, steeling himself for a horrific experience, entered the bedroom. But, what a sight awaited him.
The most beautiful woman he had ever seen lay before him on the bed. The astounded Lancelot asked what had happened.
The beauty replied that since he had been so kind to her when she appeared as a witch, She would henceforth be her horrible and deformed self only half the time. And the beautiful maiden the other half. “Which would you prefer? She asked him.
“Beautiful during the day …. or at night?” Lancelot pondered the predicament.
During the day he could have a beautiful woman to show off to his friends, But at night, in the privacy of his castle, an old witch! Or,
Would he prefer having a hideous witch during the day? But by night a beautiful woman for him to enjoy wondrous, intimate moments with?
(If you are a man reading this…) What would YOUR choice be?
(If you are a woman reading this) What would YOUR MAN’S choice be?
What Lancelot chose, is given below:
BUT… make YOUR choice before you scroll down below… OKAY?
Noble Lancelot, knowing the answer the witch gave Arthur to his question, he said that he would allow HER to make the choice herself. Upon hearing this, she announced that she would be beautiful all the time. Because, he had respected her enough to let her be in charge of her own life.
Now… what is the moral to this story?
The moral is…
1) There is witch in every woman no matter how beautiful she is!
2) If you don’t let a woman have her own way, things are going to get ugly.
So, always remember: (for men in reading)
IT’S EITHER “HER WAY” OR IT’S “NO WAY” !!!
