The Amazing Spiderman - A Reboot of Worth

Just a week back, I watched Hemlock Society which was almost ok, but few things which I did not like. Similarly Spiderman 4 aka The Amazing Spiderman is fun as all critics are saying but may be not for those watched first Spiderman live action film back in 2002. The main reason is first Spidey hit us ten years back, and now we are mature and the main story of Spiderman is same over the decades.

Facebook Message & Facebook Mobile over SMS : Free Convo Combo

Last week my brother went to Bangaluru to attend the final interview at Indian Statistical Institute. Though country wide roaming for free of cost did not come, we find a way out for cheaper (almost free) communication mode.

I sent a sms to his BSNL no. asking to send me messages on facebook.
He is using BSNL 3G, which offers data roaming at no extra cost.
My mobile no. registered with facebook, and as he drops msg on fb to me, it instantly delivered to my mobile's inbox.
I replied to that no. and it goes to fb conversation.

Buggy MBlaze Application?

I am using MTS MBlaze for around 2 years since its inception in Indian wireless broadband market. But I am very much in doubt that the default MBlaze application is fucking buggy!

It disconnects the internet connection in the middle, and auto-reconnects for a few seconds. It is done so silently that even you could not understand that disconnection happens. Bad for you if you are doing some online transaction. (MTS MBlaze v 1.0.27)

Reliance Infotel - Who Are On the Hitlist?

The new telecom policy or NTP 2012 will allow VoIP (voice over internet protocol). So you will able to make voice or video call to any number from your home or wireless broadband in coming days.

It will help Reliance Industries owned Infotel Broadband(IB) to offer ultra low cost voice calls in India. As these video/voice calls will generate domestic internet traffic - there will not be that much of traffic load for IB. Bad time ahead for 2G and 3G players, as it is almost sure RIL will come up with predatory pricing (forget Sunil Mittal who thought 1p/sec from Tata Docomo was predatory pricing). And international calling will be cheaper than current operators' tariff.

I Love Paramount - The Sarbet House of Old Calcutta

These days, I am quite busy, so blog posting is not that frequent. But today I came across an article on Chakhori Corner on College Street's Paramount - the Sarbet House of North Calcutta. I intentionally put Calcutta as the shop still holds the heritage as well as the glamor of old Calcutta.

I came to know about this blog - Chakhori Corner via Kolkata Curry. The blog is run by 3 girls and posts Kolkata restaurant reviews. Just then I jumped to check the blog, not totally disappointing, but I did not like the idea of the rating system which includes Decor and Cleanliness. I mean that's unique and says that it is a girl-run review!

WinkNet 3G Data Card is Just Another ZTE MF190

Recently one of friend went to Chandni, the tech hub of Kolkata for buying a data card at a low price. There he found some WinkNet branded data card, on the box there is a BSNL logo. He shared this info to me. So as I am interested about data cards I google 'winknet'!

From Google's 1st page results of 'winknet' I came to know that Winknet is a brand of Shyam Networks, a communications solutions provider which recently tied up with BSNL UP to sell their Winknet data cards in India. The reports (Business Standard) also noted that Shyam Networks is a part of Shyam Group which is the second major investor in Sistema Shyam Teleservices (SSTL) which runs CDMA voice and data service provider MTS India.

3G Data Pricing Goes Low - Operators Pushing 3G?

In last 2 months every operators who are offering 3G services in India have revised their 3G pricing. Breaking the ice was done by Aircel, just like they did bring true internet on 2G. But soon Airtel, Idea, Vodafone and RCom went to slash 3G data pricing. Even PSU operators - BSNL and MTNL are not late to join the 3G party.
