Who is your competitor?

Who sells the largest number of cameras in India?

Your guess is likely to be Sony, Canon or Nikon. Answer is none of the above. The winner is Nokia whose main line of business in India is not cameras but cell phones.

Reason being cameras bundled with cellphones are outselling stand alone cameras. Now, what prevents the cellphone from replacing the camera outright? Nothing at all. One can only hope the Sonys and Canons are taking note.

Try this. Who is the biggest in music business in India? You think it is HMV Sa-Re-Ga-Ma? Sorry. The answer is Airtel. By selling caller tunes (that play for 30 seconds) Airtel makes more than what music companies make by selling music albums (that run for hours).

Make Your Actions Reflect Your Words – The Girl Who Silenced The World For 5 Minutes

This video needs no explanation. The message is clear and concise and from the heart of a child.The interesting thing was that she wasn’t saying anything any of us wouldn’t think about. It’s just that we don’t say them outloud. We tent to go about daily lives almost in resignation on matters that seems too complicated to deal with. I find the most powerful of all messages are ones that convey the most fundamental.

Blu-Ray Technology History and The DVD

Remember VHS? Of course you do. Back in the day everybody used to play movies in their VCRs, at least until the invention of—and eventual transition to—the DVD. Believe it or not, the DVD was introduced in the US all the way back in 1997, so suffice it to say it has had plenty of time as the number one video storage medium.

Enter Blu-ray. With the introduction of high-definition (HD) video, there was simply too much information for the DVD to handle. The Blu-ray disc, which is a high-density optical disc, was invented as a way to store the large amounts of data that HD video creates. Problem solved, right? Well, pretty much, but Blu-ray didn’t just happen overnight. Blu ray technology had a long history to become as widely accepted as it is today, and it’s just getting started.
