Hutch Offers Back-Up Service

Hutch recently announced that it is offering phone back-up service to its customers. What this means is customers can back up their phone book, data and sms for a monthly fee ranging from Rs. 30-50. This new service has a strong potential to grown given the fact that voicemail is almost non-existent among phone and mobile users in India. The preferred way of pinging is SMS or missed calls.

Bharti Airtel Reorganizes Top Management

India’s number one mobile operator Bharti Airtel reorganized its top management. According to media reports the reorganization was in response to counter the challenge posed by the new mobile entity Vodafone Essar. Vodafone is the number one mobile operator in the world. At the same time both Bharti Airtel and Vodafone Essar are working on sharing their network infrastructure.

Perhaps the most significant is that Mr. Sunil Mittal, who is the current CEO of the company will vacate that slot and continue to be the chairperson of the company. Starting from next month Mr. Arun Kohli will be the CEO of Bharti Airtel. Mr. Kohli is currently the president of the company. The Economic Times repots:

“Sanjay Kapoor will now be president (mobile services) and Atul Bindal will be president (broadband & telephone services), while David Nishball has been appointed president (enterprise services).”

At the moment Bharti has about 37 million subscribers.

Koffee With Karan + Shilpa Shetty

Guess who is going to be featured pretty soon in Bollywood director’s Karan Johar’s show? Shilpa Shetty and her sister Shamita will be Karan’s guests and I suspect we can get to hear lot of juicy tidbits about what happened at the show etc. Shilpa has hit a jackpot and is busy endorsing deals and is also supposedly writing a book?  Did you hear that Shilpa has also bagged a deal to appear on a Broadway show? Well, that should be interesting. I am not sure how the show will do on Broadway. It might have a better reception in the UK.

If you missed watching Karan Johar with Shweta Nanda (Bachchan) on her new show…try watching a re-run. The show runs on NDTV and is called NextGEN It was pretty interesting to hear what K Jo had to say about his interests etc.

Tesla, The New Car From Silicon Valley

Tesla, the new electric car from Silicon Valley has been in the spotlight for a few months now. Apparently the electric car company has borrowed quite a few things from IT companies and hopes to make their product a success like say an Apple.

Elizabeth Corcoran of Forbes has a really nice, long article about Tesla, the company, the thinking behind the company, and when they plan to roll out their first set of wheels. The larger question that the article addresses is can Silicon Valley help reinvent the car. Just like Apple helped reinvent the computer industry when it was caught in the mainframe technology. Who knows maybe Silicon Valley folks can do it. I know if anyone can do something radical in the automobile industry it is these folks in the valley.  The entrepreneurs and engineers in Silicon Valley have a different mind-set and don’t take no for an answer.

Clearly the car’s price tag of $100,000 has not been an obstacle.  They have already sold out their first production batch even before the first Tesla roadster hits the road. There are over 300 people have made a down payment to buy their Tesla.

Reading the article made me nostalgic about driving down 280, which is one of my favorite highways in the Bay area. I hope I get to get a darshan of the car when I am in the Bay area.
