    of free speech and bans 

    (PS – this post is not about a specific government or ideology or community, but a brief attempt to summarize what overall is happening is right or wrong) Technology is static concept..unable to move, unable to interact unless the dynamic concept of its users get involved in it.

    Twitter, Facebook are good technologies meant to create digital connection and interactions between people who are otherwise hard to meet in real world.

    So far it is good.

    But from past few months, things are getting complex for Indian government and Indian netizans. There have been specific cases where Indian government has urged social networks to monitor disturbing content being uploaded on sites. Here disturbing content means anything picture, post that contains offensive material to either disrupt social harmony (do we have it?)  or directly the government.

    In unofficial way, Indian government is telling social networks to remove anything that it deems to believe to be offensive and can cause damage to governments image in peoples mind or worldwide.

    Perfect step taken by Indian government..except that it is totally nonsense and wrong.

    Some genius elements in Indian government totally fail to understand that they are playing a fools game by banning technology and curbing free speech ( which in unofficially non existent in today’s Indian society ), why cant they realize that instead of banning entire sites, or banning sms..they should target specific groups that are misusing technology to disrupt government functioning..

    And this is where government fails miserably. There is no way government has any kind of system to monitor users..no intelligence can provide them information..or even if intelligence provides information, the government is rarely seen to act promptly on this..yesterday sushil kumar shinderevealed that home ministry had warned state government of possible riots in mumbai..as usual, state government waited till few crores of property was damaged and people on twitter got enough material to be angry for weeks..

    Frankly..what is twitter ? It is just a microblogging site that allows people to post 140 character updates, allows people to follow, block, RT each other..thats all. This is static or fixed functionality of twitter. What probably inflammatory on it is the people who are using or misusing it for their purpose. this is the dynamic part of social network which needs attention

    And just to prove me wrong..police, ie a government body has decided to target people and arrest them and remove their websites and content. Police have arrested Aseem Trivedi who was associated with IAC in their recent tussle with GOI..This linkwill provide more information..and the charges put against him are quite serious for anyone.

    Is this the beginning of the end? Or a new beginning where all our probable fears will be proved to be true? What chaos and what challenges lies ahead?

    Time will tell..

    voodoo economics of android phones in india 

    Life before android phones was pretty easy. It was just about selecting a nokia symbian phone, or a plain j2me phone with no OS.

    Enter 2012 and one can find several dozen mobile handset companies packing in android with IPS, capacitive, multi touch screen, GPS, SNS integrations, 1Ghz plus processors..so much confusion as to what model to choose from for what features.

    Even that would have been better..but what creates this confusion is the voodoo economics of mobile handset markets.

    Today indian android mobile market has got mnc players like samsung, lg, htc, motorola that cater to hi and mid range customers at a price quite expensive by indian standards..one the other hand, indian android handset makers like micromax, karbonn etc pack in almost similar facilities at a price significantly less then mid phone price of a mnc.

    Take example of HTC wildfire S and Karbonn A18

    Carefully go through technical specs of both phone and you will find that karbonn a18 is much much more powerful handset with fast processor and latest os..while htc handset is lagging at android 2.3 with a medium range processor.

    Problem arises is when you see the prices at which they are available. HTC wildfire S is almost Rs 2100/-  more then Karbonn A18. Why cant flipkart or any online store price it at comparatively less then handsets that have latest os and powerful features?!

    I do not understand this voodoo pricing of handsets..esp those of mnc and indian brands. Offline stores are yet another story..they price handsets much higher then online stores..

    Leaves one wondering if problem is of having a choice to select from many or is the problem of not having choice or is it the devil that is in details we are getting bombarded daily?!

    I dont know..
