Indian IT industry is safe

According to survey condected by Nasscom told that Indian IT industry is safe

India’s IT industry does not need to worry about the current economic downturn as “we have a strong knowledge base” and the established market players here would not be affected. ”We need not worry about the slowdown in the US economy. It is all a temporary phase and very soon, the US dollar will reach a stable position,” said Ganesh Natarajan, chairman of the National Association of Software and Services Companies (Nasscom).

Addressing a chief executives’ meeting here, he said despite the global meltdown, the Indian software business is growing at the rate of 21-24 per cent every year.

He, however, urged the IT industry leaders to look beyond the US market. “Plenty of opportunities are available in Latin America, Japan, China, Europe and also in some African nations,” Natarajan said.

“By 2020, India can alone fulfill the need of technical talent of the whole world. By that time the whole world would need 43 million technocrats while India will have 47 million surplus technocrats,” he said.

According to Natarajan, the estate and retail business would feel the heat of the economic downturn. “But our IT sector is safe and would continue to grow,”

He added that huge investments have to be made to train the available talent.

Microsoft still leads the race…

There is a tough Competition between yahoo and Microsoft… but now there is another competitor in the race. it is google

Microsoft is the first largest e-mail service, with 283 million users

Yahoo is the second largest e-mail service, with 274 million users

Gmail is the third-largest e-mail service, with 113 million worldwide users as of September according to comScore.

Google announced Tuesday it is adding video and audio chat to its free e-mail service, joining Microsoft and Yahoo in a race to make communication on the Web a more social experience.

Both Microsoft and Yahoo offer video with their instant messaging services, but have not integrated it into e-mail.

Microsoft has also been upgrading its communication platform, known as Windows Live

Dell Mini 12 My review

Features are

  • 12.1in 1,280 x 800 screen

  • 1.6GHz Intel Atom Z530 CPU

  • 1GB DDR2 RAM

  • 80GB hard drive

  • Windows Vista Home Basic Edition

  • 25.5mm thick, 1.25Kg

  • 3-cell 24WHr battery

The use of an Atom CPU with a mere 1GB of RAM to play Windows Vista Home Basic Edition. A Linux system is expected to come later, so it’s not all bad news though.

The Mini 12 costs £429

If considered as a small, low-powered and above all portable notebook, then, the Mini 12 could be a lot more attractive.

Sourav Ganguly’s (Dada’s) Last Test

Days away from playing the last Test match of his distinguished career, former Indian skipper Sourav Ganguly Monday said he was taking the Nagpur five-dayer as just another game.

souravgangulylast-testThere is no special feeling going into the last Test of my career. It is just like any other game. And I am taking it that way. For me, every Test is special,” Ganguly told newspersons here before leaving for Nagpur.

Everybody has to go (retire) sometime or the other. It’s the team cause that comes first,” he said to persistent queries from scribes on the issue.

Ganguly said new players would come to fill the vacancies created by his departure from international cricket.

The ongoing India-Australia Test series, would be remembered for the retirement of two of India’s biggest cricket stars “ Anil Kumble and Sourav Ganguly“.

Sourav Ganguly’s goodbye to cricket is happening at a place which saw his comeback to a version of the game he dominated at the peak of his prowess.

Ganguly has a decent first-class record here including two tons but before walking back to the pavilion one last time, he will do everything he can to better

Thursday starts an era in Indian cricket because a new Test captain Dhoni will take charge .

V.V.S. Laxman’s 100th Test may also turn out to be significant

if India don’t lose it, for that would mean questioning Australia’s supremacy.
