**Google is Blogrolling, mates**. And it reads quite some sites, and most of all it reads Yahoo! Search Blog.
Check it out ! www.Google.com/googleblog is now changed to googleblog.blogspot.com, just like everyone else hold their blog on Blogger.

More News. Blogger was down today morning. So all our Blogspot sites were not reached. Dont really know what happened.

Hot News : PCs for Rs. 10,000/-. An ultra-compact desktop computer priced at Rs 10,000 was unveiled by Science and Technology Minister Kapil Sibal, at New Delhi. Whats more, it is mobile, free to use anywhere desktop. Mobilis, sporting a 7.4 inch VGA LCD screen and several innovative features, including a six-hour battery life, is a state-of-the-art product for users who demand the freedom to work anywhere, anytime.

I dont really know, if it is a good sign of bringing down the prices of PCs. Actually, there's nothing like bringin down the prices of PCs.

Have you ever wondered, when in 7 years Hamam's Price has gone up from Rs. 7 to Rs. 11. Thats a growth of about 150 %. But the PC that was costing 45,000 is 19,000. Thats approximately a DOWNFALL of 250 %.

That clearly shows you Two very important things.
Iam really weak in Maths.
The Price reduction did not come down because of increasing Consumption.

It is only that, even if PCs prices come down (if thats what you call it), there is always a PC costing 45,000. And very clearly thats got more better feature.

The Arguement may be, it is enough to have necessary features. But is that really enough ??
Human minds are ready to accept what is enough, Only they dont know the boundary of enough, so they keep expecting. (I have already warned you, im becoming a philosopher !!).

Whats your stand on this ? Do you really see PCs prices going down, or do you see Lower end PCs getting cheaper, becaus of the introduction of High End PCs (It may sound as if both mean the same..but trust me they dont).
