  • Blog Post: The iPad Shovel

    Just read that the WSJ is going to cost $4.15 per week on iPad . That is ridiculous given that the same content is available on the web and on Apple’s own iPhone for just $1.99 (and for free within many corporations including Microsoft :)). I think all the media companies that are rushing to create iPad...
  • Blog Post: Kudos IE!

    Kudos to the Internet Explorer team, but not just because they delivered an early preview of the latest and greatest browser . Sure the HTML5 support, the new parallel processing script engine and improved standards support are all great. But what I think is really commendable is the fact that the IE...
  • Blog Post: To get them reading

    Read a short essay by Adrian Hon about decline in reading . It talks about how people are reading less these days and what would get them to read more. I don’t know if people are reading less overall but I tend to agree that in this age of microblogs, twits and SMS, reading a long winding novel or even...
  • Blog Post: Lala: Yet another business model around selling Music

    Selling music online is an interesting business. So many people have tried their hands at it with so many different approaches… iTunes and Zune were revolutionary. They freed good music tracks from the otherwise mediocre albums. iTunes pioneered this model. Zune went a step further and made it easy for...
  • Blog Post: Pirates to Profits – Deregulating the copy

    Lawrence Lessig had an interesting essay yesterday at the WSJ. Based on his upcoming book remix, the essay is subtitled “ Digital technology has made it easy to create new works from existing art, but copyright law has yet to catch up ”. Among the solutions he proposes, the most interesting one is about...
  • Blog Post: Naive Joel on Mesh

    Joel's blog is one of the best resources on the net for software development. I find myself agreeing with him most of the times but his latest post on Live Mesh didn't come out to be as insightful as some of his others. If you take out his histrionics, Joel’s premise is that MS is wasting too many...
  • Blog Post: How to beat Guy Kawasaki to a startup

    I admire Guy Kawasaki and love The art of start . I'd recommend his book to anybody who has ever dreamt of starting anything. So when he announced his latest venture today, I was all ears. It's called alltop . A concept so simple that it'd make you think how come nobody thought of this before... well...
  • Blog Post: Office Live Test Drive

    The "live" wave has brought some pretty cool products to the web. I was more intrigued by Office live. I thought it was going to be a web based version of Office products but they came out with something totally different. Free domain sounded too good to be true and I jumped for it when I got...

    There's unrest in the music industry since last couple of years. Napster and its cousins have created agitation in their camp. The industry has fought back with measures ranging from suing creators and users of p2p services to educating users about the misuse and swamping these networks with fake copies...
  • Blog Post: Good virus/Bad Virus

    Microsoft has always been blamed for being a monopoly. But Dan Geer went further ahead to term it the cause of a monoculture. Here's the famous paper where he comapred the Internet to Microsoft Monoculture! According to him the network could be sharing a single flaw and can be brought down by a virus...
