What a week …

Boy! – this has been an incredibly tough week for me – cascading effect of work and more work and new releases and colleagues going on vacation etc. Yesterday was the heights – take a look at my calendar:

9-10 – meeting

10-11 – meeting

11-12 – meeting

12-12:15 – standup meeting

12:15 – 1:00 – lunch

1:00 – 2:00 – catch on emails / financial news/ cricket scores

2:00 – 3:00 – meeting

3:00 – 4:00 – coffee, discussions to set up another meeting

4:00 – 5:00 – meeting

5:00 – 6:00 – working meeting

Add to it, I had to wake up early today  to watch the India -England 1-dayer also (what a match!) – phew! – it is exhausting indeed.

Anyway, its the weekend – so, I am looking forward to just chill out.

Have a good weekend.

Search in Yahoo! reveals this:


Search in Google reveals this:


Interesting isn’t it? – maybe Yahoo! beat Google in Customer Satisfaction, but it will take a while to beat them in the Search business. Nevertheless, it is a start – as you know, in Internet, things can just grow virally!

So, that makes me wonder – why is a Yahoo! piece of good news not helping Yahoo! ? – ideas? 😉

The India England series is fantastically poised. India lead this series 1-0 and so, England will want to win the final Test at every cost. This is going to be a fantastic Test match.



Music Search Site

Got to know of a Music Search site – SeeqPod – it looks like niche search sites are ways to compete against the bigger search engines. It is definitely a very useful site – for e.g. search for Kishore Kumar in this music site – you will get songs by Kishore Kumar. In a typical search engine, you will get information related to Kishore Kumar – see here and here.
