Facebook Fan Pages : Are you building communities of Self Destruction ?

More and more companies are realizing the importance of social media.When I was working with Ayruz in 2009, many a times I saw the confused faces of my friends when I told them that I am working with a digital marketing startup. The situation has changed a lot from what it was three years back. Now I have atleast two dozen people in my friends list who are working with digital marketing companies.

Understanding social media is very important before you embrace social media. Getting the right social media strategy in place is crucial.I quote from David Armano’s HBR article

Popular Card Games for Android Tablet

Until the launch of the iPhone, most of our casual mobile gaming were limited to games like “Snake” and “Bounce”.

Top 5 Gadgets of 2012

Despite the crisis in the US and European economies, a wide array of new gadgets is being pumped into the market. I am trying to list 5 gadgets that can be labelled as top 5 gadgets of 2012. This is not an exhaustive list of top gadgets in 2012 or a user review of these gadgets.

Apple has included a new A5X chip with a quad-core graphics processor and dual-core CPU to cope with the huge pixel count increase.

Convert your Windows 7 laptop into a Wifi hotspot

Have you ever thought of sharing your internet connection with friends? If you are having a Windows 7 Operating system installed in your laptop, sharing your internet is not a big deal. You can convert your laptop into a wireless router with the virtual wifi feature. I am sharing my MTS connection to hostel mates with this feature.. Sharing an unlimited connection among four people is more economical than having limted connections individually.

Afterall sharing is caring… :)

All you need is

1. A working internet connection.

2. A windows 7 laptop with Microsoft virtual wifi drivers installed.

Dell Direct to home customer Service is Awesome

I was back home after the tiring first Semester exams and was busy planning my activities for the precious 3 days of Sem Break. We scheduled a trip to Trivandrum to attend the 15th International film festival of Kerala and to catchup with my friends in the lovely city of Trivandrum.

All my plans got ruined with my laptop showing some problems on Friday evening. I was working with my Dell Inspiron 14R and suddenly it got switched OFF. It was not booting up from then. I thought the battery is down and tried connecting the adapter but when i connect the adapter pin to the laptop, the power indicator on the adapter turns OFF.
