DNA - India - Punjab goes on Mercedes overdrive! - Daily News & Analysis

Hmm, did Merc actually call Ludhiana the Merc capital of the world ? I'm sure they've been positively surprised beyond their wildest dreams, tho. Is there a lesson here for startups, IT biggies, etc al ? There is paying power, and a large second tier city market. Its just waiting for the right product, at the right (perceived) value...

Celebrations soon ? The Future for Mobile Search...

Search for the mobile masses - RCR Wireless News

Things sure look positive in the days ahead for Mobile Search. And honestly, this is something the biggies have not cracked yet - so there's a huge opportunity for all of us. Zook is surely beginning to hit the "right time, right place" zone, and we just need to ensure we get the nmessage out to as many people as possible. That is the single biggest challenge right now.

would love to hear your ideas, feedback, thoughts - esp wrt what you think will make search on the phone click.

For now - we're merely saying you'll always get an answer - that should be worth something to users on the move. Do help spread the word - even its only a 'when you're really stuck' usage to start with.

Where ? Point your phone's browser to or sms ANY query to 57575665 (thats 5757-LOOK if you want to remember things easily).

Startup !

Spot Puncher Services? | Bangalore Metblogs

This is indeed "enterprising". Disruptive, existing market, probably builds on emerging needs (if they can handle tubeless tyres, i.e.). Bangalore indeed is getting to be the startup capital of the country, at least! Very life 2.0 :)

Spokeo alert/apologies

I responded to a friend's request to signup for Spokeo - with my gmail id.
Without realizing it, in a few moments, effectively ended up spamming all contacts in my address book - tried sending apology mails - after the first lot seem to not be able to send mails using my gmail account any more. For those of you who got that Spokeo spam - my apologies.
Ah! Pain!
