A.R. Rahman

A R Rahman is the new sparkling gem for North America. The Indian maestro, who is conducting the 'Jai Ho! - The Journey Home Tour', now seems to have as many fans as in his home country.

The reason for this belief is that Jai Ho Tour's tickets are apparently sold out in North America. Fans have willingly shelled out USD 1,000 approximately Rs. 4,700 for the tickets.
Eleven concerts are going to be held in North America between June 11 and July 5, after which Rahman and his battalion would go to Europe. The Tour will begin in New York, the show will take place at Nassau Coliseum and end on July 25 at London's Wembley Stadium.
Rahman shot to fame around the globe with his score for Slumdog Millionaire. He won two 'Academy awards' and two 'Grammy Awards' for the movie's soundtrack.
Americans find Rahman's music easy to listen to as it embraces fantastic tunes, and the music also goes soul deep. Rahman's incredible sense of music has to be applauded as it is really able to cross all boundaries and barriers.
Indo-American Arts Council is selling the Jai Ho! Concert's tickets, its executive director Aroon Shivdasani believes that Rahman has enchanted Indians and western audiences alike with his versatile music range. Shivdasani doubts if any seat will be left available at any of the concerts; all the regular tickets of the concert are sold out in US. Only the high value tickets are left, but they are also expected to be sold soon

Apple's next-gen iPhone coming in June

Apple Inc Chief Executive Officer Steve Jobs will address the company’s Worldwide Developers Conference in June, a sign Apple may be planning to unveil the next version of its iPhone, analysts said.
“Given Apple’s track record, the most likely scenario is that they’ll introduce new hardware, in this case the latest iPhone,” William Kreher, a St Louis-based analyst at Edward Jones & Co, said in an interview.
Jobs will kick off the five-day meeting, which starts on June 7, the Cupertino, California-based company said in a statement. Apple typically introduces products at the event, known as the WWDC.
Since releasing the iPhone in June 2007, Apple has offered a new version every summer. The iPhone 3G, which added support for third-generation wireless networks, went on sale in July 2008. An upgraded version followed in June 2009.
Analysts Brian Marshall of Broadpoint AmTech, Katy Huberty of Morgan Stanley and Gene Munster of Piper Jaffray & Co have said they expect a new model in June or July.
The newest iPhone will probably have improved battery life and a front-facing camera, said Charlie Wolf, a New York-based Needham & Co analyst. Jobs will probably show the device during his keynote address, Wolf said in an interview.
The iPhone was Apple’s top-selling product last quarter, taking in $5.45 billion in sales, or 40 per cent of revenue. The Macintosh computer represented 28 per cent of sales, while the iPod media player accounted for 14 per cent.
Apple’s marketing chief Phil Schiller introduced the iPhone 3GS at last year’s event because Jobs, 55, was out on medical leave. Jobs, a cancer survivor, had a liver transplant during his 5 1/2-month leave and returned to work at the end of June 2009.
An unreleased iPhone prototype, lost by an Apple engineer at a bar in March, was disassembled and photographed by technology blog Gizmodo.com last month. If the prototype turns out to be the next iPhone, customers can expect a model that adds a front-facing camera, camera flash, higher-resolution screen, bigger battery and boxier design than the current iPhone 3GS, according to Gizmodo’s analysis.
The WWDC sold out in eight days to more than 5,000 developers, Apple said.

Kim Kardashian Shape Magazine June 2010 Cover

 

Inspired by unflattering paparazzi photos of her that emerged online last year, Kim dropped 10 pounds by increasing her workouts and changing her diet to omit sugar and coffee.

“I have cellulite, just like almost every other woman on the planet, and just because I feel secure with my body doesn’t’ mean I think cellulite is cute. It will always be an issue for me. So let’s just say it’s a work in progress,” Kim continued, explaining that she takes a “baby steps” approach to staying in shape.

“Yesterday I was traveling all day to get to this shoot and I only had time for sit-ups and crunches in my hotel room. But even if that’s all I do, I still get a sense of accomplishment, and that keeps me energized all day long.”

“All you have to do is start running towards the bank of the lake and keep running with top speed. As soon as you touch the water your legs should be going like a sewing machine.

Alto to get a fresh coat of paint as Maruti revs up to face newcomers

This photograph of a Maruti Gypsy vehicle was ...

Image via Wikipedia

Faced with a gaping hole in its entry-level portfolio after phasing out its old workhorse, Maruti 800, from top 13 cities in the country following the new emission norms that kicked in April, India's largest carmaker Maruti Suzuki is gearing up to give a facelift to its largest selling model, the Alto. The move comes in the backdrop of aggressive launch of new small cars by competitors.

Chairman RC Bhargava told FE just like WagonR, which Maruti refreshed recently with a new platform -- including engine, transmission and suspension -- even the Alto is due for an overhaul soon. Bhargava, though, refused to share details on Alto's makeover.

This is the first time Maruti has officially revealed its plan to alter the decade-old Alto model, which was last refurbished in July 2005. "Alto will be subject to a facelift and model change...for a long time it has not happened. Something has to happen now...but I don't know the time," added Bhargava.

Maruti sold over 2.5 lakh Altos last fiscal, making it the country's largest-selling car, ahead of WagonR. The Alto makeover was imminent, given that Maruti's hegemony in the small car market has seen an unprecedented attack of late. Whilst the Rs 1-lakh-odd Nano is slowly taking the mantle of India's entry-level four-wheeler, rivals Hyundai, GM, Ford and Volkswagen are snipping at its heels in the hatchback segment with competitively priced and better-looking models in i10, Beat, Figo and Polo.

GM has sold over 17,000 Beats since its launch at the Auto Expo 2010, and Ford Figo too is revving good numbers, 15,000 at the last count. Car analysts say Maruti sensed the rising threat from other carmakers and it is only natural for the company to keep refreshing its existing portfolio to compete with some of the new-age models. launched by global auto giants like General Motors and Ford. And the next 12 months will see new small car launches from Toyota, Honda and Nissan too. Shinzo Nakanishi, CEO of Maruti Suzuki, India's largest carmaker by sales, had told FE during Auto Expo in January, "Starting this year, there will be very high pressure on us from all sides, including pressure from (commodity) prices and from competition. But, we will do everything to defend our 50% market share. We will try to absorb the price increase as much as possible."

Last week at a Suzuki Motors vendors' conference in Macau and Hong Kong, Bhargava had said the company's overall capacity would be doubled to 2 million units in the next five-six years to keep its market share intact.

According to Vaishali Jajoo, auto analyst with Angel Broking, since Maruti's brand equity is strong, any minor change in Alto could help the company compete with new launches from competitors; "The recently launched newer models have better features than Alto, but they are in the same price band. Maruti had no choice but to alter it," she said. S Ramnath, another analyst with Mumbai-based SSKI Securities, said creating excitement was the key in the cars business, which is what Maruti was trying to do.

The decision to alter an existing model was in line with the company's broader strategy to offer its customers newer models for its existing products, said Bhargava. "Every model will have to go through a facelift every 2-3 years. Even Alto will go through this cycle...but it is not for competition. You don't just introduce a model. It requires a lot of planning," he added, while downplaying the perception that the carmakers hand has been forced by competitive heat in the small car segment, that still accounts for over two-thirds of all car sales in the country.

Wipro bags 3 data centre projects

Formally established in 1862, High Court at Ca...

Wipro Infotech, the IT arm of Wipro, said that it has bagged three projects from the governments of Maharashtra, West Bengal and Gujarat for setting up data centres.
"The three prestigious wins is an endorsement of Wipro's leadership position in the domestic IT space based on strong technology expertise, process excellence and superior execution capabilities. With this, Wipro is well-positioned to win other state data centre (SDC) projects as well," Wipro said in a statement.
Financial details of the deal were, however, not disclosed.
The Maharashtra project entails commissioning and managing a State Data Center spread across about 3,000 sq feet for a period of five years, while the West Bengal project is for designing, building and management of the data center (IT and non-IT components) for five years.
The Gujarat project is for upgradation and commissioning of the Gujarat SDC, which will also act as a disaster Recovery site for four other mini data centers already present in the state. These centres providing online services to urban and rural citizens like for payment of taxes or simply filing a complaint.
"The Government is focusing its energies in improving the delivery of services to citizens, transparently managing and reporting on public expenditure and improving the effectiveness of interactions within various government entities," Ranbir Singh, Head of the Government Vertical of Wipro said.
The projects assume significance with SDCs emerging as one of the key elements of the core infrastructure required for the National e-Governance Plan (NeGP). Once integrated with other infrastructure projects like State Wide Area Network (SWAN) and Common Service Centers (CSC), these data centres would form the framework for roll out of various eGovernment services for citizens and the Government.
