Interesting trends

Another innovation from Google, a search engine to find the search trends across the globe. You can also compare search trends of many topics. So, I thought it would be interesting to find out the search trends of some hot topics in India.

Here are the results and I found them really interesting, these display a comparison of search trends for some of the most popular topics.

Note: The results are sorted according to the first(primary) key and for them the trends of second topic is given. This is why I had to use Sex as a secondary key otherwise it overshadows all other search keys.

1) Technology vs Sex:

Vellore tops the list of cities searching about technology and interestingly our top IT cities are no where to be found among them. Also, technology seems to be catching up as the hottest thing for people to search.

2) Music vs Sex:

Anand & Goa are top the list for Music search.

3) Technology vs Music:

4) Music vs Technology:

Last two trends are most interesting, notice that where Technology is the hot topic to search, people are hardly looking for music (supposedly in the city of geeks), but the cities where Music is hot, Technology also holds the similar importance for them.

Vodafone does it the Skype way

Vodafone has come up with a hybrid technology to allow Skype calls through mobile through the ubiquitous GSM network. For obvious reasons, it can now change the face of mobile industry in recent future. At the moment Vodafone is uncertain about selling it, but one thing is sure that this is going to create a huge dent in the ISD calling segment of mobile telephony. With this technology in their kitty they will definitely have an edge in the cut throat competition of Indian telecom market, which they have just entered by the acquisition of Hutch.

Many many happy returns of the day to my darling bike

Today is the second anniversary of my beloved Bike. Interestingly, I touched the 22222 Km mark on it today. In the evening I am going to celebrate it, with a nice speedy drive on the highway and some French chocolates. Tempting, isn't it? You can join in too :)

Enter the world of Bulls & Bears

Today's newspaper was crammed with budget analysis and impacts but the thing which caught my attention was the stock market and its dramatic rise and fall on the budget day. For a long time I wanted to invest in the stock market but never had enough motivation, determination and most important confidence to play around with it. But today I somehow didn't need any of these as I was determined enough to invest, that also as the first thing today, as the market was down. I consulted a friend who plays in to this market and sure enough, locked my first lot of Stocks. Sealing my investment with a "good job" note, market recovered 220 points before closing and gave me a profit of Rs. 3.50 per share one the first day itself.

Now we need to wait and watch if I can complete the journey from a tyro to a consummate investor :)
