A list of current and past hardware that I have worked and played with. I used to use Gdgt for maintaining this information, but that turned out to be painful.


NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan (2013-)

The most powerful graphics card of all time. Roar!

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 590 (2013-)

Running CUDA and PhysX on this.

Creative Airwave (2013-)

Sounds tame and weak. But, perfect for home use for playing non-serious music or radio.

Creative WP-300 (2013-)

Sounds good and is very convenient to have around at home.

Nikon D5100 (2013-)

Does not autofocus correctly sometimes. Quite irritating.

Lenovo Thinkpad X201 (2013-)

Light and compact. Running Ubuntu on it.

Nook Color (2012-)

Running CyanogenMod 10.1 on it and using it to read Pocket and comics. Perfect for the job!

Dunu Trident (2012-)

Accurate, but also a bit tame to listen to.

Nokia C1-01 (2011-)

The cheapest Nokia cellphone I could buy. Menus are too slow to use and the audio is weak. Do not buy!

Sennheiser PX100-II (2011-)

I think this sounds the most enjoyable among all my headphones. A lot of the low frequency sounds also become audible with this.


Nikon D40 (2007-2013)

My first DSLR. Small, light, compact and shoots like a dream. Only reason I gave it away was the few focus points (only 3) and the not-so-high ISO.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580 (2011-2013)

Most of my successful PhD research was done on this beast.

NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTX (2007-2009)

This used the G80 GPU and was the first GPU to support CUDA.
