Why I like Opera- and why this is sad?
Because on my mobile, it gives me the fastest experience, in terms of page load times, doesn’t sell my data to corporations, has still some of that indie spirit since its not yet sold out and has some real cool features, from tabbed browsing, speed dial, trash can, feed preview to customizable web search. Stuff i like. Yes Chrome on Android is equally better . But I like my mini opera on my...

After ages, Yahoo surprises with an awesome...
Yes, it may not win the browser wars, but then who thought Chrome would be the top dog in just four years. Fact is, with Axis, Yahoo has really got something which is quite different from other browsers from an experience point of view, and the search experience is visually quite appealing. Yes no more lines of blue links….all you get to see are a series of box images and you can decide...

How easy is it to write off a company ( Facebook) after one day of primary market trading where the stock falls by 12 per-cent ? Reading the tech news coverage yesterday I thought Facebook kind of imploded in one day post the IPO and Mark Zuckerberg’s life kind of ended. But then everyone’s favorite poster boy is just one step away from being everyone’s favorite whipping...

Digital browsing experiences should be exactly like this. In this site, Google gives an explanatory angle to how an email is sent, but makes it a virtual journey for those who are browsing. It is replete with point videos ( to explain a particular process at every given juncture) , ambient sounds and a smooth hassle free UI. And not once do you have to click on a button, a link or are taken...

Facebook - Where to from here?
So the biggest tech IPO is over. Facebook ( FB) at $38 a share has not really set the NASDAQ on fire. Impressions vary from negative to neutral and overall the IPO seems to have been a bit of a whimper, or maybe the stock was priced absolutely perfect as many other analysts have pointed out. Irrespective of that, where does a company which has only ad inventory to sell, go from here? What does...
Big Data and the opportunity of discovery
Big Data is changing the search landscape as we speak. Today search is more about creating an opportunity to discover than reporting an incident. To explain; a keyword can only highlight, index and hence rank an incident, but it does not quite grapple with the overall search landscape. Today it is more meaningful to analyze a global search pattern or trend to maximize SEO, than look at it from...

The importance of relevance
Relevance is critical. It’s critical because without relevance demand cannot be sustained or created organically. The biggest organizations in the world did not stumble and lose their way because they faced competition. They lost their way, when their products lost relevance in a changing world. They lost their way when they could not innovate for what would be RELEVANT tomorrow. ...
