Lockerz ?




I knew about Lockerz from Orkut's 'BSNL Broaband And EVDO/3G' community. They tagged it as 'Internet's new obsession'.  So I managed to get a invitation for Lockerz . ! 

What is lockerz ? I am writing the things which I understand.

  • here you can earn points (PTZ) and then redeem goodies.
  • here you can earn PTZ for doing anything - watching/downloading/uploading stuffs - well that was told to me, as the site is still in its beta, most of the sections are not working out. The whole site will be live on October, 2009
  • sign up - get PTZ, everyday log in get PTZ, invite your friends, they join in - get PTZ, answer daily questions - get PTZ - its simple ! 
  • Shipment of goodies - still its to US only, from October 15,2009 they will start international shipments . I guess and hope shipments will be free ! 
  • At present, as on 30.09.2009 I can not redeem anything as most items are 'fresh out'. ok they are telling that they will restock soon ! 


From Lockerz.com : (on about Lockerz)

"Lockerz is the place to go to buy the coolest stuff at the lowest prices, watch exclusive video, discover new music, play the hottest games, hang out with your friends - and get rewarded for just about EVERYTHING you do on the site.

Our mission is to be your daily habit, not a site for your parents or grandparents looking for their long-lost friends from Kindergarten.

One other thing you'll love about Lockerz are PTZ (or "Pointz"). PTZ are Lockerz' proprietary loyalty "currency" that you earn whenever you buy, watch, play, share, invite friends, or even just show up on Lockerz. Redeem PTZ at the PTZ Place for incredible prizes, great products and dream experiences.

Too Good to Be True? Why are we doing this? To thank you for joining early. To build a Lockerz community of cool, stylish, cutting-edge people who love to buy great brands. To give you a taste of how PTZ will work when we go live this fall. And to test out different prizes and PTZ levels. That’s key. This version of PTZ Place is a test. PTZ levels will change when the full Lockerz site launches.

Lockerz is set to launch sometime in the Fall 09. Members who sign up now will get to explore and help shape the site before the launch. We hope you'll join us."

Per Second Pulse hits India


So after Tata DoCoMo's Per Second Pulse hits hard to Indians, everyone is trying to follow this trend.

Aircel in Kolkata took it to new and existing customers, free of cost.  (some sources telling its pan India offer ) 

Negative Impact: you can't enjoy any other STVs.

Tata Indicom in Mumbai, Maharashtra and Goa offers same for 60 days for Rs61 STV. 

BSNL and Vodafone also introduces second pulse in some circles. BSNL is going to offer it on its all circles due to Docomo success - added maximum customers in August '09 ! 

already there Indicom offers day-night local calling @ 50p & 25p respectively. 

Well a long time before, when Indicom was a kid in Indian Mobile Industry started same thing - I can remember my dad using Tata Indicom @ 3p/second pulse. Off course that time call rate was higher w.r.t. now. Have a look to Tata Indicom's second pulse : http://www.tata.com/company/releases/inside.aspx?artid=+ebGsrpQpwQ= , which was withdrawn later. 

As Indicom withdrew it, I guessed Docomo may withdrawn it. To add to my belief, Docomo noted as Tariff could be changed as per TRAI or their wishes. Well the note is withdrawn. But fact is second pulse on its second occasion is here to stay and makes operators think about it. ! Docomo acting like a godfather, everyone is following it !
