Google to Kill Wave & Other Flop Products

Here is the mail i got from google today.....

Dear Wavers,


More than a year ago, we announced that Google Wave would no longer be developed as a separate product. At the time, we committed to maintaining the site at least through to the end of 2010. Today, we are sharing the specific dates for ending this maintenance period and shutting down Wave. As of January 31, 2012, all waves will be read-only, and the Wave service will be turned off on April 30, 2012. You will be able to continue exporting individual waves using the existing PDF export feature until the Google Wave service is turned off. We encourage you to export any important data before April 30, 2012.


If you would like to continue using Wave, there are a number of open source projects, including Apache Wave. There is also an open source project called Walkaround that includes an experimental feature that lets you import all your Waves from Google. This feature will also work until the Wave service is turned off on April 30, 20…

Outdoor Advertising & Digital Signage Displays

Outdoor Advertising is the way of advertising of products & services offered by businesses to the public using various visual methods. A billboard or hoarding is a common form of advertising. Hoardings were made of Iron and the advertisement was painted over it by artists.

Recent advancement happened in billboard industry is the introduction of Flex Printing. Flex Print is a sheet of polythene on which big advertisements can be printed using large plotters. Usually Flex sheets are fixed on Iron Frames and they make good quality visual ads on the streets. A disadvantage of Flex sheet is that it is not biodegradable or environment friendly unlike the painted iron boards.

Cost of printing a flex is a deal compared to painted hoardings. A 50 Square Foot hoarding costs Rs 500 to print considering you are dwelling in a village and is billed Rs 10 per square feet. Now the metal frame for basic versions of hoardings would be IRON SQUARE PIPES or ANGLE IRON. This make up the rest of the c…

Oil is definitely not the Future

Those who love environment knows that cars used for personal mobility pollutes the atmosphere and empties the fossil fuels which should have been judiciously used. The mafia named OPEC is behind increasing fuel prices to make money from us.It is high time that we should convert to some clean energy (read green energy). I believe that oil mafia has a hand in killing any new genuine efforts in this regard. I have read about the machine developed in Japan that can convert plastic to crude petroleum. I also remember about the threats the inventor met from oil companies.Similiarly in india there was a phenomenon called Ramar Pillai who invented a machine to convert green leaves to petrol.

Instead of encouraging such efforts ,our governments are acting as agents of oil companies after pocketing money from them. Our scientists and oil companies discredited Mr. Ramar Pillai and depicted him as a fraudster. Ramar Pillai is believed to have sold petrol to autorickshaw drivers at discounted rat…

Smart Key System in Indian Cars

Now almost all Indian Cars have Wireless Central Locking System as a built in feature. If a customer is buying a version that does not come with the security cum central locking system, he will be buying it and installing it. The idea is to not using a key to enter the vehicle and you can lock the vehicle via wireless at some feets away from the vehicle. Smart Key is a different thing altogether. A Smart Key can control the central locking system as well as it can start and shut down the engine of the car. So it will be replacing the conventional key. It will be a device that can be put in to your pocket . The driver need only to possess this device with him. It is Key Fob.  When he walks near to the car, the car automatically disarm and switch off the central locking system. When doors are open and you enter, it reads that and makes the engine immobilizer on.  Now you can start the vehicle using a push button switch labeled START / STOP . Same switch will be pressed again to stop the…

Maruti Astar Automatic Review

Driving in Kerala is a different experience. Here the drivers of bigger vehicles believe that public road is their family property and will occupy the most of it and they don’t give a shit about those driving small car or two wheelers. Even in villages the traffic is getting big thanks to administrator’s disinterest in making good roads for the increasing  number of vehicles. Those guys just focus on collecting road tax and tolls.

Automatic Gear boxes are a boon to people since it makes driving much easier by taking clutch and the activity of changing gears out of question. But the problem was that cars fitted with those costs 10 lakhs and above. It was sure that the middle class guy will miss out.


Maruti and Hyundai made some experiments with automatic gearboxes earlier. There were automatic versions of Zen, Esteem, WagonR , Santro etc. Now i10 is the other small car apart from Astar to have an automatic  version. The common man is not much educated about automatics and the fact that…

Water Purifier for Safe Drinking Water

I am using Pureit Water Purifier for drinking water.The well in my place is notorious of having red color water which contains unwanted minerals.I think some ferrous substance is present in the water.One person refuted my belief and he tried to inject his idea that the red substance is some fungal or algae like substance. I found that the water from a particular spring deep down the well is bringing in the red color.Except couple of wells in my area all wells are like this only.One old well near my home has some thing called "NELLIPALAKA" - a trap made by an old carpenter that traps this unwanted material in the water.A contractor in my village made similiar thing recently employing a modern carpenter.It was a flop.

I tried an advice of a wise man who told me to put kummayam (not some food it is powder of limestone looks white).I tried that too and failed.At last i bought a pure it and it is still worked no issues except that i got to replace first level filtration - the mic…

Vaisakh Weed Clearing Service Nooranad

I didn’t grew up planning to be an entrepreneur and choosing a different life. Now a days people have been branding me as ‘abnormal’. Vaisakh Weed Clearing Service was also born out of the so called ‘abnormal’ behavior that the society bestowed upon me.

A carpenter from Ernakulam was hired to make kitchen cabinets as a part of renovation of my home. His name is Selin. Selin told me about a grass cutting machine used in Ernakulam by workers of LNG Terminal. His description was that it was a long rod machine with a diesel engine on the rear and rotating metal blades on the front. He also offered help in buying it from Kochi. Later on a train journey I gazed upon such a machine operation. On that moment I felt there was a small business opportunity since my village is facing acute shortage for agricultural manual labour for weed clearing operations in rubber plantations.

Then for some days I did serious research on brush cutter models and their prices. I learned from owners the pros and…

Aadhar - Unique Identification Number for Indians

Our indian establishment (read government) does not know who indians are.There are terrorists, bangladeshi migrants, others inside india.That might be the reason behind the UID Project now renamed as Aadhar.Nandan Nilekani was made boss of the project.

The Aadhar Project Kickstarted in my village called Palamel in June.I was informed that by the neighbours. I purchased the enrollement form from a nearby shop that sells forms for Rs 10.I filled it up attatched a copy of the voters id card and reached the government approved IT kiosk in every village of kerala called Akshaya center.

They gave a number 10034,10035 and 10036 for my family and i was asked to come on june 2nd.On june second i went and i was given another number 279 and was waiting patiently for about 4 hours and later i was called.My thumb impression of four fingers each of both hands was recorded in a scanner along with the two thumbs.I was sitting in front of an LCD monitor where i can see the things getting recorded.I po…

MTS Pulse SmartPhone Review

MTS India (Old name is Sistema Shyam TeleServices Limited) is a telecom service provider in India.Shyam Telecom tied up with a foreign partner Sistema and applied for UASL license in 21 telecom circles of India.In August 2008 Mr A. Raja and other crooks helped them and they became the first new mobile operator to get a pan-india start-up spectrum to start their mobile service operations in the country.The mobile service is based on CDMA and is brand name MTS.

MTS has got a range of smartphones from HTC is MTS Pulse.It is powered by Android 2.1.It is a great combination of style, technology with free calls, data usage and SMSes.The package says phone is free on contract and you pay for the usage only.Hope they dont follow the reliance ambani way.

I met Mr Adarsh who started a web design consultancy in Nooranad.He was denied broadband connection by the crooks of BSNL citing lack of telephone cables.Their reason was they stopped the habit of laying cables.They are asking people to go wireless and selling CRAP WLL phones to customers in rural regions like Nooranad where BSNL has a monopoly.I agree with the communists that monopoly is bad.I differ with the…

Mobile Number Portability Idea to Tata Docomo Experience

Mobile Number Portability (MNP) is a facility in the Mobile Telecom Industry which enables a mobile phone subscriber to move to a new operator while retaining his old number.When you switch to a new telecom company you can take your number along to the new provider.Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) has been asking operators to roll out  MNP in India for the benefit of the subscribers.Telecom Companies were prolonging the rollout getting excuses from the ministry because of fear of another price war in the already crowded space.


MNP offers an opportunity for GSM subscribers to shift to CDMA technology and vice versa.It cost you a maximum of 19 Rs to port to a new service provided.You should have a minimum commitment of three months.Also porting is possible only with in a circle.This means you cannot port your connection in Kerala Circle to Tamil Nadu Circle.TRAI has made it mandatory to port the connection within seven days.A service disruption of two hours need to be beared…

Best Used Cars in India

The auto industry of india is growing at a good pace. There is a second hand car industry thriving silently aside the primary market. For even Rs 20000 you can drive away with a second hand car. Car manufacturers of recent have stepped in to this opportunity. Haveyou heard about Maruti True Value, Hyundai  Advantage etc?Even Mercedes has got their own preowned cars program.They call it preowned because some of the cars will be thirteenth hand rather than second hand.

The revolution these company certified business idea created is in instilling confidence in the buyer. A buyer gets good condition cars that can be trusted. Buying cars from company certified programs will be expensive than from a direct owner in most of the cases. The preowned car program just acts as middle man. The car will be in the name of the first owned itself and the program gets it transferred to your name when you buy it. Since cars have a higher rate of depreciation we can save some money buying a one year old …
