Aditi Rao Kisses Arunoday Singh

Sunday, January 30, 2011 0 comments

Aditi Rao And Arunoday Singh kiss each other at least 22 times in Sudhir Mishra's upcoming film, "Yeh Saali Zindagi". Yes. Twenty-two times do this new Bollywood couple kiss in this romantic thriller that also features Irrfan Khan. The movie has been set a release date of February 4, 2011.
The kiss is now the talk of the town and has been the USP of the movie whose music has been set by Khan. Speaking on the numerous kissing scenes throughout the movie, director Sudhir Mishra says, "Aditi (Shanti)and Arunodoy(Kuldeep) play a young couple based in Delhi. They kiss every time they quarrel. And they quarrel a lot. If we are showing a couple in love, I'd rather show them kissing at a moment when they should be kissing, than have them dancing and shaking their hips to a song."
Aditi and Arunodoy's repeated kisses in Yeh Saali Zindagi have broken the previous record set by super hot and sexy actress, Mallika Sherawat and Himanshu Malik in her debut film, Khwahish. Mallika had kissed 17 times in the movie. However there is a difference between the two: Aditi Rao is a married lady who kisses her co-actor record times, but Mallika isn't married.

Standard & Poor’s stated that US Home Prices declined

Wednesday, January 26, 2011 0 comments

standard-poorsU.S. single-family home prices fell for a fifth straight month in November and could plumb new lows soon, a closely watched survey showed on Tuesday.
The Standard & Poor’s/Case-Shiller 20-city home price index released Tuesday fell 1 percent in November from October. All but one city, San Diego, recorded monthly price declines.

Eight others sank to their lowest levels since prices peaked in 2006 and 2007: Atlanta, Charlotte, N.C., Las Vegas, Miami, Portland, Ore., Seattle, Tampa, Fla., and Detroit, which saw the largest drop at 2.7 percent from the previous month.

Millions of foreclosures are forcing prices down, and many people are holding off making purchases because they fear the market hasn’t hit bottom yet. Many analysts expect home prices to keep falling through the first six months of this year.

“With these numbers, more analysts will be calling for a double-dip in home prices,” said David Blitzer, chairman of S&P’s Index Committee.

Mounting foreclosures will probably throw more properties on the market this year, further depressing prices, homeowners’ equity and construction. The lack of a sustained housing rebound and unemployment above 9 percent are among reasons the Federal Reserve may announce this week it’ll complete a second round of stimulus that will pump $600 billion into the economy by June.

The housing market has been struggling since home-buyer tax credits expired earlier this year. To take advantage of the tax credits, buyers had to sign purchase contracts by April 30.

“A double-dip could be confirmed before Spring,” said David Blitzer, chairman of the index committee at S&P. Blitzer defined a double-dip as both the 10 and 20-city composite indices setting new post-peak lows.

He noted that the 10-city index is 4.8 percent above its April 2009 low while the 20-city index is just 3.3 percent higher than its low that same month.

Unadjusted for seasonal impact, the 20-city index fell 1.0 percent in November after a 1.3 percent decline in October.

“I find it hard to believe that if we get a double dip in home prices we could get the consumer back in a meaningful way. Right now it seems like a coin toss as to whether that’s likely. So I’m disappointed,” said Uri Landesman, president of Platinum Partners in New York.


Firefox, Chrome add privacy tools

 google-chrome-icon-executiveThe Firefox and Google Chrome browsers are getting tools to help users block advertisers from collecting information about them.

Alex Fowler, a technology and privacy officer for Firefox maker Mozilla, said the "Do Not Track" tool will be the first in a series of steps designed to guard privacy. He didn't say when the tool will be available.

Google Chrome users can now download a browser plug-in that blocks advertisers -- but only from ad networks that already let people decline personalized, targeted ads.
According to Google Inc, these include the top 15 advertising networks, as rated by the research group comScore, a group that includes AOL Inc, Yahoo Inc and Google itself.

The next version of Microsoft Corp's Internet Explorer browser, which is still being developed, will include a similar feature, though people will have to create or find their own lists of sites they want to block.

Google and Mozilla, however, are developing tracking-protection tools that will work automatically -- once people decide to turn on that privacy feature, that is.

Microsoft, Google and Mozilla's promises of stronger privacy comes on the heels of government complaints that online advertisers are able to collect too much data about people in their quest to target ads.


Number portability: What telcos are offering

Tuesday, January 25, 2011 0 comments

bsnl-logo_2Telcom firms have launched a major advertising, marketing and promotional blitz to attract new and existing customers after the government launched a pan-India scheme that allows them to switch operators while retaining the numbers.

Although mobile number portability may not be a big game changer for the industry, it is certainly proving to be a boon for customers giving them the freedom to shift networks, as companies are not just improving their service but also throwing in freebies.

State-run Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd (BSNL), for example, has waived the porting charges and is offering a SIM card free of cost along with an additional talk value of Rs.100 for pre-paid customers who switch to their service from other operators.

Post-paid customers moving to BSNL will get 50 per cent rebate on their first bill. Idea Cellular, the first telcom operator which started campaigning for the service, has not announced any special offers for the customers, but it is making its presence with its round the clock "No Idea, Get Idea" campaigns.

Facebook raises 1.5 billion dollars

Saturday, January 22, 2011 0 comments

fbtimeFacebook raised 1.5 billion dollars in funding, but has limited the investment of giant Goldman Sachs to 1 billion dollars, the social networking company announced on Friday.

The transaction includes a previously announced investment by Goldman Sachs of 450 million dollars and a 50 million dollar injection from Russian internet firm Digital Sky Technologies. The other billion dollars was raised in an oversubscribed offering by Goldman Sachs to its non-U.S. clients, the company said.

Goldman Sachs and other investors value the company at approximately 50 billion dollars.

“Under the transactions terms, Facebook had the option to accept between 375 million dollars and 1.5 billion dollars from the Goldman Sachs overseas offering, at the discretion of Facebook,” the company said in the statement.

While the offering was oversubscribed, Facebook made a business decision to limit the offering to 1 billion dollars.” Goldman Sachs in recent days had to bar domestic investors from participating in the Facebook deal due to questions raised by the regulatory authority Security Exchange Commission.

Under U.S. law, any company that has more than 500 investors must file public financial reports. Facebook, held privately until now, plans to do so in April.

“Our business continues to perform well, and we are pleased to be able to bolster our cash position with this new financing,” said David Ebersman, Facebook’s chief financial officer. “With this investment completed, we now have greater financial flexibility to explore whatever opportunities lie ahead.” The company said it had no immediate plans for these funds.

“Facebook will continue investing to build and expand its operations,” the company said in a statement.


Katy Perry announces California Dreams world tour

Friday, January 21, 2011 0 comments

katy_perryPop singer Katy Perry has announced that her 'California Dreams' world tour will hit the U.S. and Canada this summer. "It's an edible-looking tour with meat and candy. It'll look like a smorgasbord of them," the New York Daily News quoted her as saying during a Facebook Live interview Wednesday.

During the interview, Perry had technicians stream cotton candy-scented air into the Facebook offices. "I'm gonna make the Facebook offices STINK!" the star tweeted earlier in the day.

Perry said she will be employing the artistic skills of Mark Ryden and Will Cotton, who created the portrait for her 'Teenage Dream' album cover, to help create the look of the fantasy world tour. The tour will kick off on June 7.


India Launches Mobile Number Portability

Thursday, January 20, 2011 0 comments

India Thursday started mobile number portability services across the country, letting users change operators without changing their cellphone numbers, which will lead to more competition and may even lower tariffs further.

The introduction of mobile number portability, or MNP, will lead to a lot of competition in the industry, Kapil Sibal, federal telecom minister, told reporters after the launch.mnp_malaysia

The launch of MNP in the world's fastest-growing telecommunications market by subscriber additions is likely to also prompt operators to further reduce call tariffs, which are already among the lowest in the world, to retain existing users or lure subscribers from rivals, say experts.

This is likely to spur consolidation in the industry as new players--already reeling under the effects of low prices--may struggle to survive after MNP, they add.

On merger and acquisition in the sector, Mr. Sibal said the government will "evolve a policy in the next 100 days".

The MNP launch was deferred three times as some telecom operators weren't ready with their networks to provide the service. It was finally launched in Haryana state in late November last year.

The telecom industry Thursday welcomed the launch of MNP.

"With the introduction of mobile number portability, the subscribers will have freedom of choice," the Cellular Operators Association of India, an industry lobby body, said in a statement

Friday, January 14, 2011 0 comments

Microsoft Corp notched its best ever month for the Xbox in December, selling 1.9 million of the game consoles, helped by its new Kinect hands-free system and the latest in the blockbuster 'Fable' and 'Halo' game series.xbox360balllogolarge

But the world's largest software company, which launched its latest Xbox 360 console in 2005, lost out to Nintendo Co' Ltd's Wii in the key holiday shopping month, according to figures from retail research firm NPD Group. Sony Corp'sPlayStation was third.

Microsoft said high demand for the Xbox and Kinect add-on unit caused shortages in stores over the holiday period and forced it to accelerate delivery of units to stores that were meant to be sold in January and February.

As a result, the company expects shortages of both the Xbox console and the Kinect add-on for the next two months.

Microsoft said last week it has sold more than 8 million Kinect units over November and December, the first two months on the market, beating its target of 5 million.

Samsung to launch low-priced 3D TVs

Wednesday, January 5, 2011 0 comments

Samsung Electronics Co, the world's largest maker of televisions, plans to offer a range of 3D TVs that will be priced lower than its existing models after high prices damped demand. Capture

The electronics maker will include the technology in seven models this year, Lee Kyung Shik, a vice president at the digital-media division, said in Seoul without disclosing prices. Samsung will display six models at this week's Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Jason Kim, a company spokesman said.

"After assessing consumers' needs through market research, we've found that there's quite strong demand for 3D TVs," Lee said. "But price has been an obstacle."

Samsung joins Toshiba Corp in seeking to boost demand for 3D TVs after high prices and the need to wear special glasses deterred sales. Tokyo-based Toshiba said yesterday that it plans to sell the world's first large-sized 3D sets that don't require viewers to wear spectacles.

Samsung, based in Suwon, South Korea, plans to start a Web-streaming service that allows viewers to watch movies and TV shows in 3D without downloading them, Lee said. Also, 3D glasses weighing 28 grams, about 10 grams lighter than current models, will be showcased at the CES, the company said in a statement.

A lack of television content is a major challenge in convincing consumers to buy 3D TVs, Yoon Boo Keun, head of Samsung's TV business, said in October. Samsung offered three high-end 3D models in 2010.

Google's digital newsstand to take on Apple

Monday, January 3, 2011 0 comments

Google Inc has approached several magazine publishers about creating a digital newsstand, in a move that could open a new front in the Internet company's rivalry with Apple Inc, according to a news report. Google_Chrome

The digital newsstand would provide a way for media companies to sell versions of their publications designed for tablet PCs and smartphones based on Google's Android operating system, according to a story in the Wall Street Journal, citing anonymous sources.

Google has discussed the venture with publishers including Time Warner Inc's Time Inc unit, Conde Nast and Hearst Corp, and has told some publishers it would take a smaller cut of revenue than the 30 per cent that Apple typically takes from iTunes sales, the report said.

Google has also offered to provide publishers with certain personal data of customers who purchase the digital versions of their publications.

The report said that Apple is also planning several changes with its iTunes online store, including making it easier for publishers to sell subscriptions -- in addition to single issue sales -- as well as the possibility of sharing more customer information with publishers.

Representatives of Google and Apple were not immediately available for comment.

The report said that the timing of Google's digital newsstand remains vague and that it's possible the venture might not materialise at all.

Last month, Google, the world's No.1 Internet search engine, began selling digital books through an online store, entering a market dominated by Inc, and intensifying its competition with Apple, which also sells electronic books for its iPad tablet.

According to reports in the media, this song will be featured in her album ‘Teenage Dream’, which will be re-released in the near future. The ‘Teenage Dream’ music album was originally released as Katy Perry’s summer album, but there have been talks about releasing the album again next year and it is then that Katy Perry’s fans and music lovers in general will get to hear the earlier unheard track ‘Part Of Me’.

The ‘Part Of Me’ song is the creation of music composers Dr. Luke and Max Martin. In the song, Katy Perry speaks about her past affair and how that affair did not work out. Through the ‘Part Of Me’ song, Katy Perry says that she does not regret her boyfriend ditching her because he will always miss what she is at the present moment. The lyrics of the song condemn the unnamed man for treating her thus, at the same time rejoicing that she has got her true identity after he left her.

Well, the ‘Teenage Dream’ album had come and conquered the hearts of many. It is to be seen whether Katy Perry creates the same magic with her latest pop/rock track ‘Part Of Me’.
