iPad 2 is now officially available in India | Price and specifications

Apple earned a bad name when it chose to ignore Indian market for iPad. Now it seems that Apple has learnt its lessons and is not ready to ignore 1.21 billion strong Indian Market for its newly released iPad2. Just 2 days back Apple India announced that iPad 2 will be available in India now. One interesting thing to note here is that in present times Apple is feeling the heat of immense competition in tablet market. The current generation of Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) based tablets from almost all major manufacturers are giving Apple a run for money.  Because of this Apple is now targeting markets where the presence of Android based tablets is almost nil and where better to land than India, where people have purchasing power and Honeycomb is not present here. This becomes even more evident if we observe that Apple has made no similar announcement for its iPhone 4 which is doing ok in sales in US and Europe markets.

Search Engine Optimization of Images in Your Blog

When I started blogging a year ago, I was startled to see how easy it was to rank in Google image search. This was the time when I was struggling to get better rankings for my travel site in Google web  search. Something was wonderfully right for me . Most of my images were fetching me the desired traffic to my website when my web search traffic was dismal. Even after a year, whenever I post any image, it gets indexed in Google image search faster and gets good search engine ranking. So what is the thing that I am doing right that others are not doing with their images ? Search Engine Optimization Continue reading "Search Engine Optimization of Images in Your Blog"

How To Import All Your Facebook Contacts To Gmail & Yahoo! Mail

Sometime back in November 2010 Google was super pissed off at Facebook. This was because of Facebook's attempt to import Gmail data without Google's consent. apparently Facebook thinks of "one way" data traffic, it takes data from wherever possible but when it comes to sharing the user data with others Facebook shows a big middle finger. Google even made some public remarks regarding this issue. "We’re disappointed that Facebook didn’t invest their time in making it possible for their users to get their contacts out of Facebook. As passionate believers that people should be able to control the data they create, we will continue to allow our users to export their Google contacts." - Google Google, Yahoo! and many others allow a free flow of data from one to other. This reflects one philosophy - if you have created the data, you should be able to use it the way you want. On the contrary, Facebook uses others data but it never lets others use it data.

How to disable “light box” effect in Facebook albums

Recently Facebook has made some big changes in its user interface. Not all of these changes were taken positively by masses. One such change which I do not like personally is the new "light box" pop up view of album images. Facebook calls this effect as "theater view". Personally I find this new "theater view" as obtrusive in nature, it covers most of my screen adding no value addition to the over all viewing of normal friend's/family's albums. The biggest drawback of this change is that one can not opt to go back to earlier normal album view, which was much simpler and more fun to browse through. Facebook should have given its users an option to revert back these changes.

Nokia’s New Armor X7 | Good Enough Against Android Smartphone ?

Nokia is again relying on its dying legacy of Symbian mobile OS. Recently Nokia has launched its X series of phone with a better and bigger screen. After learning hard lessons with resistive screens, Nokia is now decking its smartphones with AMOLED capacitive screens.  As we know that performance wise capacitive screens are better than resistive screens, they can withstand larger temperature variations, they are more responsive than resistive screens. Also Nokia is giving a latest Symbian, code named Anna (Is it in Telgu for big brother ??) .
