NTT DoCoMo & Tata Teleservices – See what the promise of 3G brings

So the deal was¬† closed yesterday as most people would know – unless you crawled under a rock – NTT DoCoMo has bought into a 26% stake in Tata Teleservices (The Indicom people). Rs 13,070 crore investment. So what do I read in it – Recession – it is a subjective term, this is a time for the long term investors to come forward Indian Mobile Industry and Market – Still extremely nascent, There is a lot of potential in the form of VAS and even basic communication and data services. 3G – 3G services will quite possibly be of a world class if not better grade than the rest of the world, with some of the worlds most ablest providers in the market coming in… Some of the best technology phones – NTT DoCoMo pioneered live streaming television on mobile, but they also have phone which can alieviate the need to run around on trips with computers… NTT DoCoMo

Parallels 4.0 for Mac released on tuesday

www.parallels.com With this release my need to run a seperate windows laptop has come to an absolute end. Parallels allows me to run my last remaining XP licence in Leopard and use the 3 or 4 Windows products i cannot get replacements for, and I have to use, Access, Live writer and Neverwinter Nights 2 (It runs beautifully).    So while parallels is running NWN keeps dyeing post the movie.. Ian, Frank, sorry guys no D3D support as yet. Improvements include speed boosts, (havent tried these yet), An intelligent Hypervisor Load balancer and a virtualisation engine that consumes 15-30 percent less resources. (I have noticed previously too, running a virtual machine on osx is less stressfull than on my Mac) I can play games as DX9, Pixel Shader 2.0 and OpenGL 2 are now properly supported (hopefully) Coherence is also cleaner, with the items in the windows tasjbar, moving to the Mac menubar. The best feature in my opinion though is the Safe

@Twitter – an effective marketing channel – as told by the Mars Lander.

The NASA Mars Lander was a highly watched experiment, by the world’s scientific, space faring and geological community. The possibility of life on the Red Planet, and any fears of attacks from Martians, due to constant jibes by Bugs Bunny have to be inspected! (And kids if you don’t know what I’m talking about here, you need to watch some Looney Tunes – the Original ones ) It is another fact of this whole operation that the digital marketing community should also look at this project, as a correct way of how to propel a subscription based model of providing information. Ok let me give some details, Phoenix – the Mars Lander – created a Twitter profile and was twittering away through all of the 5 months of its mission, till its demise on the 10th of November. Ok so it wasn’t twittering itself, the Mission crew created the profile, but the point is that it was a simple way

Will you get an iPhone legally?

On the 22nd of August, Apple in conjunction with Telecom partners worldwide will be releasing the iPhone in 15 Nations worldwide. India, Singapore and the Philippines lead the rush in Asia while the Czeck republic is added in Europe not forgetting 8 Latin American Countries.We can truthfully¬† say that Apple is truly taking over the cell phone market… What is hard to understand about this phenomenon is the price difference though, and speaking from an Indian consumers pointof view,I will possibly not be purchasing the iPhone 3G, I am very happy with my Nokia e71. When the iPhone was first launched, almost a year ago, it was something exciting, frankly something worth having, and it was a desirable piece of technology… It was so desirable that it was available Jailbroken and illegally and very easily in India. And the best thing about this was that the price was actually quite reasonable, – an unlocked 8GB iPhone could be had at

A 19″ Monitor and Games a plenty

This weekend, I finally did it, I recreated my home-media-server machine into a Roaring Gaming Monster (Well little one anyway). Over the past 2-3 Months I had slowly added more and more to this machine.. so much so that it now has more than 1500 GB of Storage capacity, Granted almost 1 TB is taken up by media and assorted data. This Server is connected to all the 5 Computers in the house is constantly on, and serves my media collection to my tv as well. Sexy setup… but the problem was, my laptops, even though they are ludicrously overpowered when compared to my first pc (1990) or my second pc (2000)… I wanted a larger screen to play Jade Empire, and Gears of War (havent got to Crysis yet) Also my brother has a thing for Flight Simulator … So Upgrade time… First things required a monitor for this headless server – A 19″ Viewsonic VA1912W was just right,

Has Google lost the ability to Innovate?

For a word that is almost synonomous with digital search, infact when you are looking for some information related to anything you more often than not ‘Google‘ it. ‘But for a company that has grown to the size of a towering behemoth it seems more and more apparent that Google may have lost the ability to innovate. beyond a few core products and competencies the Google stable has yet to produce a product that can change the world the way Search did. Google Search – Did Google invent search? No. I believe Google redefined the paradigm that was search. To search for a website, meant to search through multiple engines or directories, to see what offered you the best product for your needs, Google said, No! ” Lets actually index the keywords in the data, so you actually see the content being searched for.. This was the birth of Google, a company destined to be called Gogoole ( if i
