A decade, waiting for 3G !

Finally 3G is actually hitting the streets of India. Slowly,but for sure. Now, if you are mistaken 3G¬†for a mobile technology that will revolutionize the overall mobile experiance then I ‘m sorry for you,my friend. Why? The reasons are several.

Lets begin with “3G” itself. First of all , it’s not a technology.It’s¬†a generation of standards for¬†mobile phones and¬†mobile telecommunication services.

First ever registered domain finds a new home

The first Internet domain name, Symbolics.com, was registered 25 years ago today, on March 15, 1985. The site still exists, although the Lisp computer company in whose name the domain was first registered, Symbolics Inc., is now defunct. A private company called Symbolics-dks now owns the assets of the original company and continues to maintain an open development language called Genera. Original Symbolics staffers included Neal Feinberg, Sonya Keene, Scott McKay, David Moon, Ken Pitman and Dan Weinreb.

“This birthday is really significant because what we are celebrating here is the internet and dotcom is a good, well known placeholder for the rest of the internet,” said Mark Mclaughlin, chief executive officer of Verisign. “Who would have guessed 25 years ago where the internet would be today. This really was a groundbreaking event.” Read More…
