Where does VoIP will head

I have been watching very interestingly on the innovations thats happening in the VoIP space. This technology is catching up and these days everybody seems to be making pc-to-pc calls. The recent announcement of googleTalk has made everybody to sit upright and look forward and what would happen. That is what google has acheived, they are now termed as the next big thing in IT and moving to other domains apart from their Search services.
Its interesting to note that Yahoo, Microsoft and Google will now fight to capture this VoIP market and Microsoft has recently purchased a startup ( check,,8210-1758470,00.html ) named teleo, which allows you to make calls from pc to traditional landlines/mobiles. And everybodys interest seems to be on guessing what would be the next step for these major companies, my guessing would be
a) Yahoo would be the first one to announce pc to landline/mobile calls, this might happen sometime around Aug 2006.
b) Google Will buy Skype, this is around dec 2005 or jan 2006
c) Microsoft would announce its pc to landline/mobile calls integrated with Telephone feature in full version Microsoft Vista, this is around 2006 december.
d) Google will come with the best pc to landline/mobile calls through its google talk and it will be completely free.
Lets wait and see what happens.

Azim Premji on Education & Parenting

Azim Premji`s Article: I read a wonderful article from AP in the last Sunday edition of Times of India and thought would publish it for everybody to read, but could not get hold of a copy from web or TOI. It was a wonderful article on the education and parenting in India. He writes about giving freedom to the children on what they want to become and do in life, instead of posing parents own dreams and aspiration. The finer point is, by giving this freedom and letting the do what they want to do, he suggests that money, fame, success and everything follows. Its just time that Indian parents understand that one can make money from other fields excluding software, medicine, engineering.

Joining the blog club today

Why this Name "Understand the Connections" ?

Its my opinion that one never realises how god makes and gives the connections. Often I wonder how or why something happened, so this blog is about what I feel and why it is.

Why actually blog ?

I have been reading blogs of others and decided today that I should also start one. When I have so much to offer to others thought it would be wise to join the blog club and spread the knowledge.

So here I am, will keep posting from anything and everything on earth, however I would avoid illegal/indecent stuffs for sure. However, dont be surprised if you find information more about software & internet.

Join me in my journey to "Understand the Connections"
