Finally with the 'resignation' of Bob Houghton as Indian national football team coach, a saga that was increasingly turning distasteful has ended. Discussed are possible replacements and the importance of setting up of or following the system that Houghton set up over the last five years, because India is struggling from the development perspective as well. Meanwhile, the I-league is in a very interesting phase & I-League 2nd division has also surprisingly emerged as a fiercely contested competition. This podcast covers a bit on the teams in these two groups.

TSB Cricket # 9: The Final Four...

Written by

Unlike the 1987 World Cup, three teams from the subcontinent have ensured that this won't be a non-Asian finals much like the 1996 World Cup finals. With India beating Australia in the quarters and Pakistan thrashing West Indies by 10 wickets, Sri Lanka pulled off an effortless win against England by packing them off home. New Zealand is the only side which has stormed in for a record sixth time in the semi finals by pulling off the only upset in the knock-out state. In this podcast, we talk about the chances of these teams and of course about the big match in Mohali to be played between India and Pakistan.

Another 40 mins of Tech Ka Masala is here for you. Manan & I talk about Infbeam's 2000 crore MoU with Gujarat Govt to e-nable rural Gujarat and help them set up their stores online. The sheer value of the MoU is staggering from an e-commerce point of view in India. They obviously see something that Manan & I can't. We also spend enough time talking about Microsoft's seriousness about the Windows Phone 7 Platform given the mishaps and lack of updates to the platform and also, about LinkedIn reaching 100 mn users in India and why the phenomenal service is so undervalued. Other topics include the iPad 2 launch,  layoffs expected at AOL India and XXX domain being cleared.
