Will Obama' s India visit on November make any significant changes in South Asia?


US president Barak Obama is visiting India as three-days trip (6th, 7th and 8th) in November.

White House has released below schedule.

Nov 5 - Obama will depart from Washington


Nov 6 - Obama will arrive in Mumbai

Day One (Nov 6)

- The US President will first visit Taj Hotel, one of the targets of the 26/11 Mumbai attacks, to remember the victims of the terror strike. He is expected to make a statement here and meet some survivors of the attack.

- He will next go to the Gandhi Museum, revealed Mr Ben Rhodes, deputy national security advisor for strategic communications. (Obama's respect for the Mahatma Gandhi is well-known; he kept a framed picture of Gandhi in his Senate office and invoked his name in his Nobel Peace Prize speech)


- Obama will then move on to the business summit organised by US-India Business Council, where he will meet and greet India Inc.

Day Two (Nov 7)

- Barack Obama will celebrate Diwali, the festival of lights, with Mumbai children at a local school.

- He will later interact with university students at the Town Hall. His speech will be centred around democracy and Indo-US ties.


Day Three (Nov 8)

- The Us President will travel to the national capital, New Delhi, where he is expected to meet Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, and President Pratibha Patil.

- The highlight of the day would be Obama addressing the Parliament.

- Obama's day and the trip will end with the state dinner hosted by the Prime Minister and his wife.

Nov 9 - Obama will leave Delhi for Jakarta in the morning.





Obama's visit to India is expected to focus on economic relations between the countries, highlighting big commercial deals for U.S. companies and promoting areas in which India could offer greater access to American companies and, in turn, boost U.S. employment.

Obama Administration's point man for Afghanistan and Pakistan has said that Obama's India visit is not only important for strengthening the bilateral ties but also for the peace in South Asia.

InternationalReporter says that Obama's India visit followed by China’s Wen, both important for South Asia.


Indian IT industry is planning to have detailed discussion with Obama during his India visit.

Infosys Technologies' chief executive S. Gopalakrishnan has said "The Indian IT industry will raise issues related to outsourcing and immigration with US President Barack Obama during his visit to India next month"

"We will also clarify to Obama that most of the job losses in the US are not arising because of outsourcing IT services to India. They are resulting in other sectors such as construction, retail, which is moving to online shops, and the rest of manufacturing moving out of the country," Gopalakrishnan said


You can see the below video which shows how India Inc is optimistic on Obama's India visit.






It looks like Obama is very exited about his India visit.

Hurriyat leader Syed Ali Geelani asked people to intensify protests ahead of US President Barack Obama's India visit. "Our freedom struggle has entered a crucial phase and the next 10 days are very important...when the US president visits India, the attention of the world is going to remain focused on South Asia.

"Our resistance programme has not only created awareness about Kashmir and the sufferings of its people internationally, but has also given sleepless nights to India," Geelani said in a statement in Srinagar.

The Left parties have called for a countrywide protest on November 8, the day US President Barack Obama is scheduled to visit India. They claim the US is allegedly pressurizing India on its economic policies.

Anyway, they won't boycott Obama's address to Parliament.

And, White house has informed that Terror plot won't affect Obama's India trip.


Barack Obama's trip to India Nov 6-9 will be the sixth by a US president since Dwight D Eisenhower became the first to come visiting more than 50 years ago. Richard Nixon, Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton and George W Bush were the other US presidents to visit India.


Obama is known for his famous slogan "Change we can believe in".

Let us see whether his India visit makes any "Change" in South Asia.

What do you think. You can share your thoughts thro' the comments. And, you can take the below poll.

Our Site is Up Now and we are working on to avoid such issue in future


Our web site qualitypointtech.net was down for around an hour.

Now it is Up. Let me know if you still face any issue with our Site. Sorry if it caused any inconvenience to you.

We are working on to find the root cause of this issue. Our hosting "byehost" says that it may be due to mysql connection problem. But we didn't see such a problem.

Anyway, our Team is working on to do some changes in our database/site setup so as to mitigate the damage caused by these type of issues.

And, I am working with our hosting to avoid this issue in future.

I had sent below message to our hosting support. And, I believe they will help to keep our site up and running most of the time.


....
....
....
I am very much upset with delayed response for this critical issue.

Basically we are doing web development for various customers using different hosting. Comparatively their support and service also good. But their price is comparatively high.

Initially I choose bytehost for my own use as the price is less comparing to others. But now I need to regret about my decision as the loss made by site downtime is becoming more than the gain made by the low price hosting.

Site downtime affects our reputation building efforts and our advertisement efforts.

Currently my business model is, creating scripts and websites for various clients.

But, I am planning to bring new business model. i-e I am going to install our scripts in various domains and start selling it after bringing good traffic. And we are planning to host free tools in our site.

Good hosting support/service is very critical for our new business model.

And, note that our core business is depending on the website. So, stable server is really very very critical.

I would like to know more details about below points.

- I understand that I can host 20 add-on domains from my current single cpanel account. Is my understanding correct? Or, you have any practical limitation?

- Currently we are not able to use of our Forum news letter feature. Because it seems you are allowing only less than 50 emails per hour. Will you increase it if I upgrade to next scheme (Business grade service)?

- And, shall we get more databases when upgrading?

- I would like to know whether your support is 24/7 or limited time support. Will it vary according to current scheme and business grade service?

- Do you take any regular back up of data/code? If "yes" in what interval? Will it vary based on the plan?

- According to Google analytic, our current traffic is moderate only. If your server/plan is not supporting this moderate traffic, how can I bring more traffic to our site. It severely affects our drive to bring good traffic to our site. If required I can upgrade the plan. But without any reason if I am upgrading now, I can expect the same issues even after doing upgradation.

- Can you please give me the names of few high traffic sites hosted by bytehost? It will help me to get confidence for continuing my traffic building efforts.

Our blog (http://www.qualitypoint.blogspot.com/) is getting significant traffic.
Many experts are advising me to move this blogspot blog to our own domain by installing wordpress. But I am not doing it as currently the server is not stable. It negatively impacts our business. Please refer http://linkd.in/cQDpLs

I never faced site down issue with our another domain qualitypointtech.com hosted in India-based hosting. But I want to keep my primary domain with US hosting as I am expecting more visitors from US.


In summary, I would like to have good and long term relationship with good hosting which can provide good support/service at any time to keep our servers/domains up and running to make our business successful. I don't mind to pay more if it is required to have stable server/service.

I prefer to have this business relationship with bytehost itself. Because I don't want to waste my time in choosing another good hosting by trial and error approach.

Now my question is, whether you can provide support to have stable server and good service so that we can succeed in our new business model. Because Stable server and good service is very critical for the success of our new business model.

We are having lot of plans (e.g free online timesheet, easy learning, social bookmarking, news reader, forum,QTP tutorial, quotes) as part of our new business model. And, our Team is putting lot of hard work to develop useful scripts/applications. I don't want to see the wasting of their hard work by a unstable server/support. And, I don't want to allow the unstable server destroy our product sales efforts.

Let me know if you have any questions. And, forward this message to appropriate person if you are not the appropriate person to receive this message.

And, please note that my intention is not to blame the support/service of bytehost. But I want to have stable server/service to succeed in our new business model. I hope you understand this.


Thanks,
Rajamanickam

China has built World's fastest Super Computer "Tianhe-1A"




A Chinese scientific research center has built the fastest supercomputer.

This Chinese Super Computer is named as Tianhe-1A

It has 1.4 times the horsepower of the current top computer "Cray Jaguar", which is at a national laboratory in Tennessee, US. And, it is 30% faster than US super computer.


The speed of a supercomputer is measured in "FLOPS" (FLoating Point Operations Per Second). This Chinese Supercomputer speed is 2.507 petaflops. Peta denotes 1015 or 1 000 000 000 000 000.

Tianhe-1A links thousands upon thousands of chips made by the American companies Intel and Nvidia.

This computer has over 7,168 M2050 graphics cards from Nvidia at a cost of $2,500 each, and 14,336 processors from Intel.

The Chinese Government has spent lot of money to make this Super Computer as having fastest Super Computer is considered as National pride. China considers this as one of the steps for becoming Technological Superpower in the world.

Let us see whether Obama's encouragement brings any US Super Computer which acts faster than Chinese Supercomputer.

Anyway, Information cannot move faster than the speed of light between two parts of a supercomputer. And, lot of IO related constraints are also there. Let us see how the next Super Computer evolves.


Officials from the Chinese research center, the National University of Defense Technology, are expected to reveal the computer’s performance on Thursday at a conference in Beijing.

At this computing conference, the researchers will discuss about using this super computer for scientific research in fields like astrophysics and bio-molecular modeling.


Super Computers are valued for their ability to solve problems critical to national interests in areas like defense, energy, finance and science.

Wall Street traders use Super Comptuters for superquick automated trades.

Find below the fastest computers since 1993



India has unveiled the Super Computer "Annapurna" few months back. India has lot of other Super Computers such as PARAM and Kabru.

I would like to share the details about this social news sites frequently.


Today I am going to tell about a simple but useful feature.

Normally if you click any link in the link display page, it will take you to a details page where you can add/see comments and vote for it.

You need not always go thro' in this way.

If you don't want to add/see comments, you can directly go the external page just by clicking FavIcon being displayed at left side of the link.

Earn money from your blog/site


Are you having any blog or website attracting good number of visitors?

If your answer is "Yes", you can start earning money by showing advertisements or by doing affiliate marketing.

For example you can earn upto 90% affiliate commission by using our affiliate program.

But earning from affiliate marketing is not that much easy. We need to do lot of hard work to choose appropriate product and placing the banners and text links in appropriate ways without spamming the Internet.

If you are interested in knowing about Affiliate marketing you can subscribe to our blog. (It is free). I am planning to write more articles about affiliate marketing as part of promoting our affiliate program. I will be giving the details for earning money by effectively using our affiliate program.

Another easy way is showing advertisements. A simple and easy to use advertising program is "Google's AdSense"

We need NOT spend our time to search for any advertisers. Just by putting piece of javascript code, you can start showing relevant advertisements in your blog or website.

Google AdSense provides lot of advantages. Comparatively it is reliable. We may not see any payment related frauds. And, we will be having lot of control about choosing the advertisements and filtering out the unwanted advertisements.

And, we can show the Ads in custom search results and in RSS feeds also. Even we can use it for mobile content also.


You can read here the AdSense success stories.

AdSense provides very nice reporting module. And we can change the look and feel of the advertisements without changing anything in your blog/site. i-e You can change the font and colors of the adsense ads from your Google AdSense Account itself.

You can integrate your adSense statics with your Google Analytics also. It will help you to improve your earnings.

And, Google adSense is allowing you to show other network ads also to increase your earning potential.
And Adsense is having close integration with Google Blogger and you can easily optimize the ads in Blogger blogs. So it will help you to use AdSense effectively without requiring much efforts.

Since AdSense is showing the ads based on the content of your site/blog. The ads will add value to your blog or site.

And, you can choose various ad types (image, text, both) in various formats(square, vertical, horizontal,etc)

Mostly you will be getting the AdSense payment cheque in your local currency itself. For example if you are in India you will get the cheque in INR itself. So, you can encash it very easily and quickly.

And, Google AdSense will not affect your web page loading speed much. And therefore, your search ranking will not be affected by AdSense Ads.

I will be writing more posts about CTR , eCPM and my analysis about the AdSense behaviour based on data from Google analytics integrated with Adsense. If you are interested to read them, you can subscribe to our blog or you can book mark it.

Google adSense itself is having some limitations.

First, it is bit difficult to get approval from Google for your adSense account. They may reject your request based on many criteria such as your blog traffic, number of posts in your blog and content quality of your blog/site.

And, Minimum payout is $100 USD. So it will take long time to get your first payment cheque. And you will be losing money in your adSense account if you are going to stop your adSense ads before reaching $100. It will be applicable even if the Google terminates your AdSense account.

Since the earning is based on number of clicks, you may not earn well if your CTR (Click-through-Rate) is less even when your site receives good traffic.


So, if Google AdSense is not suitable for you or your AdSense request is rejected you can try other advertising programs.

And, AdSense allows you to show other ads in AdSense page. You may refer this page to see the adSense alternatives. (I haven't used any of them. Do complete analysis before start using them.)


Recently I came to know about projectwonderful.com.

It seems joining projectwonderful is easy. Mostly your request will be accepted if you are having good blog/site with moderate traffic.

And, you will get money based on bidding system. CTR won't affect your earnings. You can withdraw your earnings at any time using paypal account.

Minimum withdrawal amount is $10 only.

If you are interested to show your advertisements in our blog using projectwonderful you can add your bid. To know the current bid amount you can refer the projectwonderful ad displaying at bottom of the blog.
Currently I am not much familiar with Projectwonderful. Anyone familiar with projectwonderful can share their comments.


And, if you are interested to advertise your products in our blog you can refer the Google Adplanner

And, we are planning to accept direct advertisements also.

Realtime stats for Google feedburner too...


Few months back Google Blogger has introduced blogger stats for showing the blog traffic details almost in real time.

It is really very useful. I am daily using it now and it is pretty good. I may write separate post of the blogger stats laters.

Now Google has announced an feature to provide real time stats for clicks, views, and podcast downloads. It is still in Beta version (experimental).


If you use PubSubHubbub you can get stats on how much traffic your feed items are receiving from Twitter, as well as feed reading platforms like Google Reader in one place within seconds of posting your content.


You can start using the new interface by visiting http://feedburner.google.com/gfb/ or logging into feedburner.google.com and then clicking on the "Try out the NEW (beta) version!" link at the top.

And, I have noticed some messages about our feed at top of the page. I think this message alert/display is also the part of the new features.

Real time stat first came to Blogger, and it has come to Feedburner. Let us see whether Google is bringing this real time stat feature for Google Analytics also.

Indian Supreme Court adjourns hearing on Vodafone Tax appeal to November 15


The Supreme Court of India adjourned hearing in the multi-billion tax case against Vodafone to November 15 after the Vodafone sought time to go through the 2.53-billion dollar tax notice sent by the Income Tax department.

The apex court bench headed by Chief Justice S.H. Kapadia said they needed to read the income tax order. It also asked Vodafone to file its reply to the order asking it to pay Rs.11,218 crore.

Senior advocate appearing for Vodafone, said that they have received the I.T department’s order fixing the liability of Rs 11,218 crore but did not get enough time to reply.


Vodafone maintains Indian law does not require it to deduct tax because the deal took place in the Cayman Islands and both buyer (UK based Vodafone) and seller (Hong Kong based Hutchison) were foreign.

Digg.com is going down....


According to Google Trends data, visitors for Digg.com is getting reduced day by day while reddit.com and stumbleupon.com are keeping their visitors.

You can see the comparison here.

But still Digg.com is leading among these 3 social networking sites.


reddit.com digg.com stumbleupon.com




The main reason for this change is, the users didn't like the new version of the Digg.

At the same time, reddit is taking necessary steps to keep their visitors. It is keeping its site simple while filtering our spam content. And, it seems it is tweaking its algorithm further to show relevant content for the users.

If you see the most visited link in Digg, it will be mostly the reddit discussion.

Simple sign-up/registration of reddit.com attracts many new users also.

And, it seems Google also giving importance to reddit content. Recently I am seeing our reddit discussion links appearing immediately in Google search results. (i-e Google is crawling and indexing the Reddit content quickly or more frequently).

You can share your thoughts about the reason for this social media trend change.

I understand that Google Trends data may not represent the actual trend. But I assume that it will be proportional to the Actual trend. Let me know if my understanding/assumption is wrong.


I am doing some analysis about Google Trends, and I will be writing few articles based on my analysis. Especially I will write my experience about how the Google Trends help me to run PPC ads (e.g Google AdWords) cost effectively. If you don't want to miss them, you can subscribe. (It is free).

Similar to Digg.com, myspace.com is also going down.

You can see below the Google Trends comparison.

One more reason for avoiding use of vWorker.com


In my previous post I have explained the top 5 reasons for avoiding use of vWorker.com

Today vWorker Arbitrator has given one more reason for not using vWorker.com


vWorker Arbitrator has sent me a message today saying that they will terminate my account if I ask the buyer to make the payment to my paypal account directly. In normal situation this message may be valid. But as I mentioned in my previous post about vWorker.com the arbitrator of another project has confirmed closing of my vWorker.com account. So if the Buyer is not allowed to make the payment directly to my paypal account, there is no other way for the Buyer to receive the completed project.

In other words, vWorker.com is not allowing the Buyer to receive his completed project.

So, it is clear that vWorker is not useful for Buyers also.

But the polldaddy poll in my previous post http://bit.ly/vworkersurvey is getting many votes favoring to vWorker.com

I am very eager to know why they are casting their vote favoring the vWorker.com site. So, if you are the one who voted for vworker you can share your thoughts thro' the comments. And remember to mention your vworker profile url. It will help me to judge whether your comments are valid.

And, I send below message to the vWorker.com and waiting for their response. I will update the post once after getting their response.


I came to know that few other Vworker Buyers who won the previous arbitrations are also still keeping/using our script in their servers.

So, our legal team is taking necessary steps to sue them. And, I would like to know whether we need to include vWorker also. Already our Team is preparing detailed report about vWorker for reporting with Google. I will assign this new task also to them

So, send me the below details.

1. What are the steps vWorker has taken to remove our code from the server of Buyers who won Vworker arbitration?

2. Shall I consider the Buyers of vWorker as clients of vWorker?

3. Who is responsible for the legal issues? Currently I am assuming that it is Ian Ippolito. Let me know if my assumption is wrong.

4. Is vWorker subject to International Labour laws? Our legal team is calculating an amount you owe to pay for our work in all your cheating arbitrations. I may send you the invoice/bill in few days. And, we are doing detailed study about all the Coders who were cheated by you. If possible, our Team can work for them also.

5. Send the details about your authority to give copyright for software code.

6. And your bidding system is violating the copyright of many other freelancing sites. When will you prove that you own copyright for your site? I can discuss anything about copyright only after you prove me that you own copyrights for your site.




Updates on October 26

Instead of sending reply for my above questions, the vWorker arbitrator had sent the reply message "Rajamanickman, if you are not going to continue working, then you are asking to cancel the project and break your contract"

This reply message once again confirmed that my previous post about vWorker.com is valid till date. It seems vWorker.com doesn't want to correct their problems.

So, I have given below reply for them.



I am taking this issue very seriously, as I don't want to see any other coder getting affected by vWorker.com. As a win-win approach I am also getting benefit as my blog is getting some traffic from search phrases such as "vworker review", "vworker scam" and "vworker.com scam"

If you are not able to understand the mistakes you were doing, just think below summary.

- We have completed our task in our test server and the Buyer tested it and didn't report any issue once after making the final changes in our test server. So, I decide that the task is completed.

- The script is not working in the Buyers script. The reason is obvious. The server set-up in his server may be different. I can not spend lot of time in doing trial and error troubleshooting to solve his server error. Either he should accept the project based on our Test server testing, or he should provide his server access. As a arbitrator can ask him take any of these two decision. But as usual according to vWorker poor arbitration standards, you are taking this arbitration in entirely different (obviously useless) direction.

- My account is going to be closed and you are saying that you can hold back the payment. Then how can I believe I will get payment if I properly respond your arbitration.


I will update the progress in this blog. If you don't want to miss the updates you can subscribe to our blog.

And, you can read the vWorker review.

IT department gives Vodafone 4 Weeks time to Pay $2.5 Billion Tax Bill


India's Income-Tax Department slapped Rs 11,217.95 crore (US$2.46 billion) tax demand notice on Vodafone for its US$11 billion purchase of Hutchison Essar in 2007.

The tax demand complies with a ruling from the Supreme Court, although Vodafone is still contesting the ruling.

According to the official statement, the tax demand has to be paid within 30 days of the receipt of the notice of demand.

Of the Rs 11,217.96 crore tax demand, actual tax component is about Rs 7,000 crore (US$1.54 billion). The remaining amount is the interest payable for delay in tax payment.

Vodafone said it "strongly disagrees" with the tax calculation.


Vodafone official statement says that it is not liable for any tax on this transaction involving the transfer of a company outside of India. "Further, Vodafone was the acquirer and not the vendor and has made no gain on the transaction. In this "test case", the tax authority is attempting to interpret Indian law as it has never been interpreted for the past 50 years, and this interpretation also goes against internationally recognized tax norms. Vodafone will continue to take whatever actions are necessary to defend itself in this matter.

The Supreme Court is due to resume hearings on Vodafone's appeal on Tomorrow (Monday, 25th October).




Vodafone is one of the biggest mobile operators in India, with 116 million customers, by virtue of a partnership with Essar group.

On the same day that the UK company received the tax demand, its Indian joint venture - "Vodafone Essar" - announced plans to launch 3G services in the new year.

The Indian subsidiary represents a significant investment on Vodafone's part, including a $2.6bn payment for its 3G licence.

The subsidiary plans a further $500m of 3G network investment.

"We need to get more certainty that regulation will not come back and bite us in order to confirm our investment," said Vodafone Group chief executive, Vittorio Colao.

And, he says,


"I have actually invested more in India because I do believe in the country, but of course now I also need a positive outcome from the tax case and stable regulatory environment to continue."



Indian IT department has mentioned that the tax dispute with Vodafone has not impacted foreign fund inflows into the country.

Some people expect that suicide of Vodafone India VP Chandramouli Iyer can be related to this IT department tax case.

It seems Vodafone is having similar issue in UK also. Refer this link for more details.
