TKM #34: iPhone 4 in India

Written by

Its been quiet a week in the technology world with a mix of product announcements - Apple iPhone 4, India's 3G auction completion, Google sniffing its into trouble, and Hotmail releasing a new feature for India to enable access hotmail via SMS. Need less to say that Apple iPhone 4 stole the limelight this week. Saket is impressed by the display and I like the front facing camera for FaceTime. We also talk about iPhone coming to India. Things are a bit hazy and we discuss the expected pricing.

TKM #33 - Twitter Ad

Written by

Major announcements happened this week but none of them turned out to be revolutionary. Twitter released its intention about monetizing its platform with "Promoted Tweets" which is just a different way of saying ads in your twitter timeline. Apple also continued its fascination with "i" branding by announcing the iAd, a confusing ad platform for iPhone.

TKM #29: Stupid Google employees

Written by

A slight goof up has led to this delayed release. Saket & I recorded this episode on the 26th of Jan but is being released almost 5 days later. Blame me. More details will follow in the next episode. In the episode we cover IPL 3 live broadcast on Youtube, updates ont he Google-China story, Apple get cozy with Microsoft (again) and it seems like using patents to sue each over out of business is becoming fashionable.
