The New Outsourcing Idea

Today I happened to read some details about a book named "These Foolish Things" authored by Deborah Moggach.

This book according to some details I heard/read brings upon a very interesting idea, and that is to "Outsource the care for the elderly to Bangalore in India".

This book according to some details I heard/read brings upon a very interesting idea, and that is to “Outsource the care for the elderly to Bangalore in India”

According to some comments available about the book, readers/reviewers seem to have agreed with that idea and see some possibilities of that happening, sometime in future.
I am sure this will be quickly picked by some health care institutions here and it’s really a fact that the number of tourists who visit India to be on the rise for healthcare/medication.

Its little sad to note that the number of old age homes are on the rise here already and one of the main reasons being more nuclear families, children’s of old aged parents serving abroad without returning back etc.

But I am sure that this new outsourcing idea might not really have any big complaints from western world and to be welcomed greatly. Why? I will not get into the reasons.

Million Dollar Homepage

When I first came to know about this I thought or should I say I screamed that it’s my idea. Yes, it’s true, I was toying with something similar but realized that a better version of it is already made and sold. Hmm, I am talking about the

“The idea is simple: to try and make $1m (US) by selling 1,000,000 pixels for $1 each. Hence, 'The Million Dollar Homepage". “

And the 21 year old Alex Tew from England had made a cool US$1,037,100 for a simple 5 months work.

If something is available in US, then something similar or better (copy?) should be made available in India/China aswell right, so here we go, the Desi version

If you are good in thinking and know little bit of technology then you can play with that aswell, check it’s never too late to copy.

Oh, the sky might not be a limit if you are creative and know how to play with people’s emotions

Well I guess the only thing now I can do is to make or sell pixels for pets, how about

Though I might be upset that the pixel selling idea is already sold, I am happy to congrajulate everyone of them. Let me think of something to make my million .............zzzzzz

Ultra Mobile PC

Origami – the ultra mobile pc.

Microsoft is officially announcing its origami project today at CeBIT , there was a lot of hype/questions on what it is as the origami created lots of interest and expectation and very good advertisement from Microsoft without actually explaining on what it is.

“The "Origami" project is really our first step toward achieving a big vision. We believe that UMPCs will eventually become as indispensable and ubiquitous as mobile phones are today,’ said Bill Mitchell, Corporate Vice President Windows Mobile Platforms Division.

Check here and here for complete coverage.

The price is expected to be around 599$ to 999$. Microsoft website explains

What Is the Ultra-Mobile PC?

The Ultra-Mobile PC is a new kind of computer. It combines the power of Windows XP with mobile-ready technologies that make it easy to access and use your software on the go. With small, lightweight, carry-everywhere hardware designs, you can connect and communicate, accomplish any task anywhere and at any time, and be entertained and informed wherever life takes you.

Looks like its a mixture of LapTop + Mobile + PalmTop + Blackberry , all features combined into one. I am not clear on which market segment would Microsoft target for this, who would be really using this or useful to ???
