In all this talk the Bada OS quietly walks into the night, well actually waiting for Tizen, Firefox and Ubuntu to join it. WP somehow hung on with the brute force of the MS weight behind it.

Sammy without Android is like Musharraf out of power and in Pakistan for campaigning.

with all the Sunni-Shia turmoil in west Asia, now is the best time for Modi sarkaar to exploit the wedges between the two groups in India and push in some reform agenda for the community. No Khilafat stuff but definitely some normalization stuff.

INSAS is obsolete? If yes, then isnt it our home-grown product and we could have kept it constantly upgraded like what we claim we will do with the LCA, open bus architecture and all. I know the F-INSAS has a new weapon but isnt it an improved version of the INSAS with Israeli help to reduce weight?
