Skype, 3G and apple iphone- A deadly combination.

Saw the news in gizmodo? Skype is coming to iphone with small user fee for skype to skype calls. Advancements with 3G helps achieving this.. but will we be using that, especially when there is a data charge of the operator in force plus the usage charges? Any way its nice to get one in hand because, you can dial to skype from anywhere and that too with near CD quality sound..

"Technical Blogs" - The keyword in Google.

It's been ages since i quit with the promotional activities of Last day when I checked with the data of the site I found that the word Technical blogs is attracting many a number of visitors to the site and when checked with Google India, I found that it is appearing in the first page. To rank in a key word like this wasn't something I expected.. Still its a good feeling that the word "Technical blogs" started generating more hits. From now on I will try to include more contents on the technical category (at least have to justify the search!).

3G in India -

3G or 3rd Generation (International Mobile Telecommunications-2000 (IMT-2000)) services are now the international standard in mobile tele communication, with higher bit rates up to 14 Mbps uplink and 5 Mbps downlink.
Read an article in Businessline about the 3G auctions in India. The 3G tarrifs in India and the impact of the bid over the 3G specturum and so on.

BTW, in the bid Bharathi came out as the no:1 bidder with 12295 crores, and they do think that this rate is on the higher side (cue: prices of 3G may go up)

Story of pagerank, blogger, wordpress and more..

A couple of years ago the most important thing around for webmasters was how to increase Google page rank or PR. In those times, I was also in constant search for articles around the internet by using keywords like "how to increase the PR", "Increase the Page rank" etc. Occasionally I used to search for "Increase the Alexa ranking" keywords too. I was able to increase my page rank(maximum of 5 for a short duration) and increase my Alexa score to the range of 2,00,000. After that I migrated my blog to Wordpress, tried Drupal, again to Wordpress and then back here to blogger. if there wasn't a DB migration at my host side, i wouldn't have got my articles deleted in Wordpress and i wouldn't have came back to blogger. Every thing happened for good(courtesy: Bhagavat Geetha).
Last day when i migrated my page rank was 2 and this day its updated and is now 4! err.. What's happening Google?
What is left? I now have a mission in Hand, to migrate my blog sqaguy to blogger. i think I'll loose my articles in sqa blog.. wanna try all the options..
