Hi all – Reaching out to pick your thoughts on this topic.
- What makes a product Indian? Specifically, if I wanted to build a smartphone for Indians (let’s assume the urban markets mainly), what would I do differently from what stock Android does today?
- What services do Indians look for on a daily/monthly/ad-hoc basis? Is it finding places? Is it online shopping made easier? Is it calling for a cab/auto? Figuring the latest movies? Filmy gossip?…
If any of you are doing work related to this, I would like to connect with you as well.
I know multiple threads have occurred around this topic here, but can’t go share this link on all of them!
Nice writeup on the issues at hand, and what TRAI should ideally be doing on our hehalf.
A beautiful quote that could be your talisman as a startup, esp. if you are a pioneer in whatever you are doing. This was definitely a lesson that I learnt with mine.
Water is patient. Dripping water wears away a stone. Remember that, my child. Remember you are half water. If you can’t go through an obstacle, go around it. Water does.

Numbers released by various sources online show a dramatic shift globally from desktop to mobile for eCommerce. Myntra has gone on record that it expects to be mobile-only by the middle of next year.
Yet, I still see most eCommerce platforms focused on a desktop/browser experience, and most mobile offerings still below-par.
Is it that the trend’s speed of adoption has taken everyone by surprise?
Are there any Linux server mgmt gurus here? We need help to handle issues with hosting of our large WP site at ConservationIndia.org. Though this is for a cause, and it’s been doing wonders in its goals, we are looking for reliable, professional help.
We have developers in place for this, and also a security guru for high-end work, but we need someone who can help (paid) with the occasional crash, transfers, setups, etc.
Pls leave a message here, or PM me, if you are interested, or know someone who can help
Naughty headline aside, this piece raises an important question: Are B2B players getting carried away by the numbers game of B2C players & forsaking quality products with deep functionality for user growth? (the article doesn’t say that directly – that’s an inference for me)
This reads like a list of features they had to really think hard to come up with & most are quite lame – none of them seem compelling enough, other than maybe as a way to de-addict ourselves from checking out our phone screens often. Is there really a case for smart watches, and for smart wearables in general? Or is it technology still seeking its true purpose?
For those looking to buy domains, do search in some safe sites before doing so on GoDaddy or other popular domain seller sites.
For a while now, I was really surprised that domains that I was searching for were suddenly turning up as parked by GoDaddy, even ones that seemed quite improbable to have already been booked.
Turns out this practice is quite prevalent & is called Domain Name Front Running. Here’s a link I found while researching this topic. Might be of use to many of you:
Does any one know if the big Internet players exchange user data?
On Fb & LinkedIn, I see suggestions to befriend people I don’t even have a third-level connection with, but exist in my Google Apps address book (some prospective client I had met long ago).
To be clear, I have never given permission to either Fb or LinkedIn to access my Google Apps or Gmail address books.
$50mn in series A in Feb. $542mn in series B just eight months later. And this is how they describe their not-yet-public technology:
He likens Magic Leap compared to other AR-type tech to a situation whereby, if youd come to see the Wright Brothers fly their original airplane in 1903, only to learn that someone else was building a jet in the next hangar over., and the article talks of a potential market in the trillions of dollars because it’s applicable everywhere.
Wow. Just wow. Smells like a company that is going to cause a very significant change in our lives! Hopefully something in it for startups
