Hi Rajesh, I enjoyed reading your article about desktop search. I agree that tagging will be big. It completely changes the user experience and is a fundamental change in user behavior. In fact, I have gotten addicted to tagging. :-) I just started a personal and social bookmarking site called BlinkList and thought you might find it interesting. We are very focused on 1) tagging and 2) sharing and discovery of tagged content via a our unique tag manager and search box. We have thought about creating apps for the desktop but so far we have been too afraid. While it will be big, I somehow feel that the desktop space will be won by either Microsoft or Google so I am not sure I want to get in the middle. Would be great if you checked out our site (www.blinklist.com). We are brand spanking new and always eager to hear from new and super smart and original thinkers like yourself. Have a nice day!ref. blog post: Desktop Search + Tagging Isn't this encouraging???? So don't mind commenting, positive or negative, it helps improve ones skills and encourage writing lot more interesting articles. This is my first puff of encouragement, have you got anything more for me? Go ahead add your comments....
The website, Education Support, provides details about 200 government, 60 non-government and 30 exchange scholarships of various universities and institutions along with contact details both in English and Hindi [To view details in Hindi one has to have the fonts installed before hand]. In addition, terms and conditions of all major banks to provide educational loans are also available on the website which was inaugurated by HRD Minister Arjun Singh.The government now is in verge establishing true democracy, right for information, using the internet as a medium of communication. A discussion forum would be an excellent add-on for such an informative site. This is just the first step and there is lots of other information which needs to follow that democratic rule. I would love India Pincal Code to get digitized and exposed to the public, where people can just type in their complaint keywords and it would list all the IPC code with explanation. Do you have any of such dreams or wishes, start adding them as comments. Please forward this to every student you know, I promise that this link would be really useful. What are you waiting for just go ahead forwarding the below link. http://segu.blogspot.com/2005/07/website-on-scholarships-for-indian.html

GMail Drive creates a virtual filesystem on top of your Google GMail account and enables you to save and retrieve files stored on your GMail account directly from inside Windows Explorer. GMail Drive literally adds a new drive to your computer under the
'My Computer" folder, where you can create new folders, copy and drag'n'drop files to.
XMail Hard Drive: link
XMHD, previously GMail Hard Drive[GMHD], beta service allows users to mount their respective Google Gmail as a storage medium on the net. There interface is managable where you have upload the required files which inturn is present as a mail attachment in your GMail. With a better user interface they can turn themselves popular. The login and password of the service sync's GMail which is cooooool!
With mountable GMail, at the horizon I can see P.C.'s having only the O.S which is capable of storing everything on the net. I am waiting for this to happen. But wait, what happens to the Storage Industry? Started thinking, thats what Google can do to anyone..............ha ha ha.

Of course, Local and Maps Japan are designed to work with Japanese language, but even if you don't know Japanese, I'm sure you can appreciate why we developed it with some particulars in mind for Japanese users. Many Japanese live and work around train stations, for example, and refer to neighborhoods defined by their proximity to them. So we made sure they can search for businesses easily and refer to location by station names. After all, no one wants to walk 10 miles from a station, just to grab a $10 lunch!courtesy: GoogleBlog|W|P|112144054852852512|W|P|Google Maps - JAPAN|W|Pfirstname.lastname@example.org
Broadband over Power Line has given fresh spark to an old technology known as Powerline Carrier (PLC), which uses existing electric power distribution cabling for communications purposes. Electric utility companies have used it for many years for telemetry applications and controlling equipment at remote substations.
The IEEE has begun to develop IEEE P1675, "Standard for Broadband over Power Line Hardware" which will be intended to provide electric utilities with a comprehensive standard for installing the required hardware on distribution lines. The standard is targeted for completion in mid-2006.
Latest news about BPL include "Google Invests In Broadband-Over-Power Line Provider" .
Google has reached the internet masses belonging to the urban areas but now with this initiative I think google would hit every rural home soon. I know google would have started many projects which target the rural masses, the larger pie, of the worlds population. Hope google is upto something really really interesting.....!!!
If I was Google I would be ready with, Google Crop : This focuses on Agricultural Research/Industries/Market Rates/Discussion's/Climate Crop Suggestions, etc. Wish this would be born soon and help the smaller pie [farmers] to feed the larger pie [non farmers].
What do u think.?????????|W|P|112116672276475366|W|P|Broadband over Power Line (BPL)|W|Pemail@example.com
Their aim is to encourage the highest standard of creativity in European advertising and to help agencies, production houses and photographers to develop their reputations across the continent.
Epica entries are judged on the basis of 2 criteria only: the originality of the creative idea and the quality of its execution. The highest scoring print and film entries in each category are the category winners (gold) - on condition that the work achieves a score that qualifies it as a winner.

Winners receive Epica pyramids and certificates.
