Why Opera browser famous in India

As the number of smartphone user increase, so does the browser hit number. Opera is known as one of the fast inter browser especially for smartphone.
Norway's Opera Software now targets 100 million Indian users for its mobile phone Internet browser, after hitting the 50 million mark last month, chief executive Lars Boilesen told Reuters.
Smartphones are quickly becoming the product of choice in the rapidly growing Indian market, though Boilesen declined to give a specific date for when the browser downloads would double.
"We intend to get 100 million users there as quickly as possible. That's our focus now," he said in a telephone interview.
"It's an incredibly important market for us. I really don't think that people understand how big we are over there ... We are the third most downloaded app in India and we are larger than global giants like Gmail."
Opera's browser division specialises in compressing data to minimise download times and cost for subscribers, making it particularly popular in emerging market economies where network capacity can be constrained.
"If you look at the five fastest-growing markets for Android phones in the world, you will find that Opera is a top five player in all of them. That says something about how well positioned we are in the high-growth markets," Boilesen said.
By Opera's definition, India tops this list of fast-growing markets followed by Indonesia, Russia, Africa and Brazil. "These top-five ... are characterised by Opera being pre-installed on all phones. All local manufacturers in India have Opera, but you will also see that so do major players like Samsung." — Reuters

Iphone doesn`t make different anymore

Eventhough it is already a memory for us, but we have to admit Steve Job gave us different experience in working with technology. He always fight for the different experience with the so called unique identity. Even a signle gadget, it hard to find an exact copy of Iphone, Ipad, or even Macbook pro. He is unique and so all other his brands.

Does the Apple now follow footsteps of a genius?

That’s the question Apple CEO Tim Cook has faced in the two years since his predecessor, revered Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, died after a long battle with cancer. Cook, a 52-year-old operational wizard from Robertsdale, Ala., took over as Apple CEO a few months before Jobs died on October 5th, 2011. His challenge has been to maintain the momentum at the world’s largest and most famous technology company, following a decade-long period of turn-around and innovation with few parallels in corporate history.

Over the last year, Apple’s once-high flying stock price has shed a quarter of its value, as Wall Street analysts and investors alike have begun to question whether the firm’s greatest days are in the past. Indeed, it’s hard to imagine any executive, no matter how talented, matching Jobs’ track record. Over his career, Jobs radically disrupted at least eight industries: personal computing, computer operating systems, music, mobile phones, publishing, tablet computers, and Hollywood animation. The iPod, the iPhone, and the iPad transformed or created their respective markets, and a first generation iPod is on display at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. Jobs was named the CEO of the decade in 2009 and, for many, he was the CEO of the century.

Jobs, with Cook by his side as chief operating officer, turned Apple into a $440 billion juggernaut partly by developing a sophisticated supply chain—cornering the market for flash memory in the mid-2000s, for example, well before it became clear that technology would become a staple of devices ranging from phones to laptops—as well as by aggressively releasing glitzy new devices, even if they risked cannibalizing sales of best-selling products. As recent books like Inside Apple and Walter Isaacson’s biography, Steve Jobs, have shown, that’s how Jobs and company essentially created the world’s largest, most successful startup.

But now, is it the same momentum brought by Tim to present the uniqueness of Apple or just for the sake of profit?

How baidu will overcome Google

The strong will chinese newcomers in search engine, Baidu has become a debut lately. The war with Google has begun and and now they taking a bit of bit of Google territory. By then, what make them so special?

Baidu, a search engine based in Beijing, has lofty ambitions. Having conquered China, it is expanding into other growing digital markets, including Brazil, Egypt and Thailand. It is also busily setting up labs to perform the kind of cutting-edge research at which Google excels . More and more, it seems, Baidu is not satisfied with simply emulating US companies at home: it wants to become the developing world's Google.
There is every reason to believe it can succeed. Baidu was itself forged in a rapidly developing country. China's digital market is vast, with more than 600 million internet users, but it also varies widely in digital literacy and infrastructure, from savvy consumers in the cities of the east to uneducated peasants in the rural west. Baidu has learned to tune itself to China's varying needs. That experience may allow it to offer services that US companies don't understand.
Baidu's prospects in the West are less rosy. The company is toxically associated with China's censorship policies, and the English-speaking part of the web is already largely spoken for.
But as Baidu enters territories that US web giants covet, we can expect some interesting culture clashes. "Made in China" versus "made in Silicon Valley" is about more than business competition. It will influence how a whole generation of people outside the West understand the world and their place in it.
