60 minutes and 90 minutes in Beer

Each passing day, you learn new things in life. Sometimes, I think our lives is too short to know about a lot of things...forget knowing everything. More often then not, the mind is intrigued to learn or read about new things from the incidents that happen on a daily basis. Something similar happened to us this week.

This week, we went to a place to eat dinner after work. We ordered a draft beer. After some work discussion and some jokes and information sharing sessions, we were presented with the bill. We were shocked to see the draft beer charged for $7.50. We thought it to be too high. The high cost triggered one of my colleagues to fire across an email to the restaurant over the high charges. I ranted in Tweeter and left a comment on Yelp!  To our surprise we found an email to response. The response talked about 60 minutes and 90 minutes and the beer we had being the one for 90 minutes. The email was courteous, but the language was too technical or the thought was that we were beer connoisseurs. I am far from it.

That night, I fired a search to find out about 60 minutes and 90 minutes in beer.
It seems that some lagers created more hops if it the wort was boiled for around 90 minutes. It also seems to depend on what are the ingredients that makes the beer and then the brewers decide how long they want to keep it boiling.  Some brewers use combination of high temperature with a variant in cooling process to have a certain distinct color to their beer.
After reading about malt, barley and the beer making process, I still fail to understand the high price for the beer with 90 minutes. I can see it been expensive by a Quarter or maybe even 2 Quarters, but charging almost $3.50 cents was too high in my opinion. I am sure, a lot of brewers will have different opinions on this one. Bu from a customer point of view, the beer almost touched a glass of Wine!

My source of information came from the below URL and of course Wikipedia.

1. Codeine and Kids - What can go wrong?

Deep down we all knew the side effects of the painkillers and cough syrup, now the FDA has come out slinging against Codeine and Tramadol. On one hand FDA has decided to come against the painkillers, but on the other hand, it did nothing to stop pharmaceuticals to sell OTC cough syrups and drugs that do contain those chemical elements.

2. Emirates - The problem begins

This was my fear when the current administration signed the executive order to ban tablets and laptops for three middle eastern airlines. How long before the other two airlines cut down the stops in US and concentrate more in Europe and the rest of the world? What it means for passengers? More expensive flights for world travelers. The tourism industry is already hit with anxiety and a lot of travelers are definitely avoiding the hassle to come to thi…

Email is the new Fax

Do you see this picture when you sign-in to your Gmail account? 

I see it every single time I sign-in to Gmail, no matter the speed of connection. At some point this started happening to my Gmail account a year or so back and every time I log-in, it gets bad. Gmail is my preferred account and I have around 10000 emails in my inbox, which is not a whole lot. I love to clean my inbox and organize it as much as possible. All the marketing, forums, registered mails are deleted rather than just sitting there. I had plenty of filters before, but when google introduced 6 tabs, I decided to go simpler and just use the default tabs. It is working well so far, but the lag and that picture still appears every single time.
But this post if not about Gmail or how slow it has become. It's about email and I can positively say that Gmail/email has become less important in my personal life. Last year Google introduced a nice little dashboard service to let you know your email activity for the week/m…

Apple and Google - Tale of 2 photos from Tim Cook

I was watching the Apple event from this morning. It was nicely done by Tim Cook. He definitely has it's own personality for sure.

There is a section in the video when Tim starts talking about iPad. There were two striking pictures that he presented to the whole world. I won't consider it a low blow, but it definitely showcased the real problem with Android tablets. 
1. Twitter app on Samsung +Android tablet and how the Twitter app looks on iPad 
2. Yelp app - Compared on how they looked on Samsung tablet and on iPad

There was also another reason of selecting Samsung tablet -- just to tell the world how they two look alike!

But besides the point - Tim laid out the biggest problem for Android and why +Google is loosing on Tablets. It's the Apps +Google+Android+Andy Rubin !!!!!

Just look at the apps, compare them and see why Android tablets are not selling like hot cakes even when they are cheap and the OS is free. If +Andy Rubin is in denial about two sets of apps, one for smart …
