Barcamp Delhi 05

Barcamp is an event organized by the Barcampers at Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore. Apologies if I missed on some of the places. This was my second attendance to Barcamp. One was @Amity Business School, Nodia. Logically speaking, there remains a lot of thing which we miss on a day to day basis even if you tend to be in stream with the technology or any kind of information. Be it over the web or in person.

Google Chrome!

The Big shot is back again. What we call Google is now into one more web tool namely a browser. Chrome (a newly launched browser by Google) has covered the market of 1% in a single day. Well it is playing upon the statistics or its just a fame of a name behind it? Nobody knows. But check it out. It has some great features.

One of them i noticed is that, in other browsers, when a site stops responding, then it hangs up and nothing can be done. When you end that tab the whole browser closes. But, with Chrome it only closes the tab which has stopped responding. So you cant loose track on your browsing sites. Isnt that amazing..???

Well, your comments are welcome here ! ūüôā

Comparing Google and Wiki

Here we are comparing the best search engine in the world (Usage approx. 64% of all the search engines used) and world’s largest content producer. When you compare these two sites for a particular content you are looking for on the internet, one gives you the search results for the existing pages on the internet, which actually would divert you to the particular content, and the other will give you the content itself.

                                   

Here comes the difference between both. Google, due to its search quality and optimization will give you the best results with huge no. of pages or contents from various websites. This means, lots of contents on the topic you search for and lots of knowledge. On the other hand Wiki will give you the results which is understandable, interepretable and acceptable by many people on the globe. Also you can add your word to the content if you are aware about the things which is not present in the content.

Google provides you the real time information search. If you look out for live cricket scores, it will show you the results. Might be because it has index to the newly or recently created pages on the internet, but yes, you get the best. On the other hand Wiki gives you majorly the historical information or the content. This is because, the content is created by the users and the net savvy or information savvy people on the planet. They can write on something when they become aware of something. Might be the case that people writing the content on the Wiki may have referred to Google. But still, if this is the scenario, then Wiki actually would be a core rival for google.

Adding to the conversation, Wiki has an upper hand when it comes to searching the information in the office, school or the college, where majority of the sites are blocked by the cyberroam or the firewall. You cannot divert for the searched content on the google to other sites, but you can surf and get the content on Wiki readily.

These were my inferences on both the giants. As and when i infer more, i will keep adding to the conversation.

Another low segment car to be launched !

After Mr. Ratan Naval Tata, its now the turn of yet another Chairperson Mr. Keshub Mahindra, chairman, Mahindra & Mahindra to launch yet another low segment car.

Now, again i would like to point out few points relating this two creations:

1) Which brand is more trusted?

2) Which brand has a better interior?

3) Which brand will give the better mileage?

4) Which brand has better looks?

Taking them one by one,

1) Which brand is more trusted?

¬†Now there are two categories of people in India. One category of them believe that Tata who actually owns even a tea bags made by them is more relying brand. Other category of people believe that as there is a foreign venture into Mahindra so with the luxury issues, advancement issues and mileage issues it might have an edge over ‘Nano’.

2) Which brand has better interior?

With the look and feel of mahindra cars and tata cars, one can guess which one will be better.

3) Which car will give better mileage?

Tata might have an edge over it.

4) Which brand has better looks?

Comparing the two models, Mahindra renault has built the car with more of a glass into its body. This might solve its profitability issue too. Because much of the price reduction might come from the less usage of the aluminium and plastic body into it, which actually has to undergo special denting process. While Tata Nano has a simple look but yes, looking at it, it seems to be a safer car to travel in.

 Well, these are the predictions and facts regarding these two cars, but lets see what the mass thinks about it and which make is actually going to boom the low segment.

Not a Critic but a Fact !

There are recent talks going on for the latest and the cheapest car made available in the world now by Mr. Ratan Naval Tata. Well, the whole world might be thinking about the cheapest car that will be running on the road shortly.

 

Now here i would like to consider two issues:

1) Maintenance cost
2) Unavailability of proper infrastucture

1) Maintenance cost
This car has an engine on back side and a luggage space on the front side. Now the parts of the car might be different from the other tata makes. So will those parts be readily available to the customers? Will they charge more for the maintenance parts?

2) Unavailability of the proper infrastucture
Think about each and every person in India moving on a two wheeler on the road. Lets take an example of Delhi. So many traffice jams. So many accidents. So many time consuming signals. Now with a launch of such a cheaply available car, and with the increase in standard of living, we can see the scenario even getting worse. Lets take an example of people driving pulsar. Pulsar is available at a price of 70k to 80k. Now rather than purchasing pulsar, one could invest more and buy Nano, so just think that instead of no. of pulsars moving on the road, there will be cars moving. Do we have the infrastructure to support this kind of scenario?

Now does this question started revolving in your mind?
