TATA finally take over Corus

After Indian borne industrialist MITTAL sparks in the steel world,its turn of one more Indian industrialist to get into top 5 of the steel industry
Indian steel giant,the TATA's has finally pipped Brazil's CSN to acquire Anglo-Dutch steelmaker Corus Group Plc at slightly more than $11 billion.CSN came out with a bid of 603 pence but TATA's came out with a bod of 608 pence.CSN officials confirmed pulling out of the race to acquire Europe's second-largest steel firm after a final offer of 603 pence a share. Tata Steel raised its final offer to 608 pence a share by the time the auction entered the concluding ninth round from 500 pence a share at the start of the auction.

Tata Steel's winning bid of $11.3 billion puts Corus Group's enterprise value, which includes debt, at more than $13 billion.

The takeover marks the largest acquisition by an Indian company and would propel the combined entity led by Tata Steel to the fifth rank in steel output in the world.

The nine-round auction called by the UK Takeover Panel began at 2200 hrs Indian time (1630 hrs GMT) on Tuesday.

Tata Steel had initially bid $9.2 billion (4.6 billion pounds) against CSN's higher $9.6 billion (4.9 billion pounds) last month, prompting the UK Takeover Panel to intervene and pick the winner through open bidding.

Under the auction norms, each suitor was required to raise bids by a minimum of five pence per share.

With this win, Tata Steel has now entered the big league of the global steel industry. Tata-Corus would have a combined production of more than 23 million tonnes.

Currently, Arcelor-Mittal is the world's largest company in this space, followed by Japan's Nippon Steel and South Korea's Posco.

The Corus acquisition would also help Tata Steel to be a 40 million tonne per year entity by 2012.

File hosting service - good or bad???

More than half of the forums in the world are run with the help of users uploading their files on the File hosting services. Most of these file hosting services don't even need registration.They provide the service free of cost.Most of them limit the size to 100 mb.A mail service restricts the user to just 10mb and you need to be a part of some mail network to receive the file.But most of the file hosting services does not need any registration on both sides.You can either send the link of the file to your friends or invite them through mail.File hosting services either restrict the file size to 100mb or restrict the number of streams to download or removing the support for Download manager,thus forcing you to register for their pro version or doing something that can increase their revenue.
Consider it supports download manager ,gives you enough space but bad thing is whenever a user tries to download some file ,it will how you that slots of your country are filled.If you want to download you should download the mega upload toolbar.In the same way rapidshare used to restrict resuming of download and compatibility with down.But there is some good news for rapidshare users in India as per digital Inspiration since rapidshare now has its own server in India [].I think that other file hosting services also should follow in the steps of rapidshare.

advantages of File hosting service :-
Free online storage of your files-can be used as online backup
Can share large files with other users in forums
No registration required for the novice users [ but files uploaded should be checked before they are displayed in public]

Disadvantages :-
Irritating restrictions on users forcing them to do things that generate revenue for the website
Increasing the piracy rate [ movies and softwares uploaded and shared without copyright]
Anonymity of users increases the illegal use of file hosting service
e.g. recent outrage of Gandhi on youtube
Note : video hosting services can also be considered as file hosting service since most of them are having same feautures as filehosting one's do.

Video Game Addiction

Smoking,drinking,doping are still now the various addictions that has been affecting the today's youth.Now a new addiction has came and it does not constrain itself just to youth.Age doesn't matter for this.But it is highly seen kid's and teens.Yes,I m talking about video game addiction-the latest most passionate habbit of the today's generation.
This game addiction is not restricted to any level.The various games can be played either on Xbox or playstation or on computer.Kids mostly get addicted to xbox and PS2 games while teens prefer multiplayer computer gaming.The bad thing with the kids is they think that the whole world lies inside the game.The present day game graphics has gone to such a bad extent that everything appears to be happening with you in the game.Lack of proper parental care causes this addiction in the kids.Kids in my thinking shouldn't be exposed to video gaming as it manipulates the way they think about the world.Kids should be encouraged for outdoor gaming till their teenage.Once they get exposed to real world,they are less chances of getting addicted;Most of times kids get addicted as they don't find other interesting things to do.Parents should keep a watch on their kid and should always keep him busy with interesting things.
For the teens ,the main reason is boredom and passion of the theme of the game like first player shooting,racing....Most popular addiction games in the youth are
Counterstrike [cs/cz/source]
Age of Empires
World of Warcraft
NFS Most wanted
These are the most common multiplayer games seen on the Networks.Most of times people start playing the game because of the enthusiasm that is generated in them by their friends discussing about the game.The worst thing with the multi player gaming is people feel them like real battlefields for them.They discuss strategies,they fight against each other after game also sattiring each other.Many people turn a lot aggressive in the game thus by loosing the control on them.Even gamers are recognized by their game names.Some junior in my college still dont know my name but know my game name
Primary reasons :
passion on the theme
getting more involved with the game-connecting it to real life
Enthusiasm created by friends chat about game
Latest gadgets of the game
lack of parental care [for kids only]
How to get rid of this :
No shortcuts.Start reducing your gaming time day by day.Allot that time to some other thing that you find interesting to do.This will take little bit of time.When you have reduced it considerably,Get out of the place for sometime and go for some tour or stop passing time with your PC.Hardly in one month you will be out of this addiction.Once you loose addiction you will never get back to this.I bet you.
I was once a bad game addict,But some factor changed my thinking course,I followed the above and Im out of it now

Remember : Nothing controls you except yourself

How to Hide Blogger Navbar in New Blogger Beta

If you have shifted your blog from old blogger to the new blogger beta, you may have noticed that the previous CSS hack to remove the Nav bar will no longer be effective. That's because Google now uses different CSS tags to display the blogger bar. [#navbar-iframe instead of #b-navbar]

Fortunately, hiding the blogger navbar from new blogger is also simple. Just paste the below code anywhere in your Blogger template [enclosed by tags] and the blogger banner will be gone forever.
       #navbar-iframe {
For Classic beta template users in new Blogger beta, search and replace #b-navbar with #navbar-iframe to get rid of the blogger navbar.

Thieves - They are smarter

Gone are those days when a thief comes to your house with a rope on his shoulders in the mid night hours,climbing through the drain pipe and then breaking up your locker to get the money.Welcome to new generation thieves....
These thieves are not like the old ones who use to commit thefts as part of the family profession.Stealing is no more a profession of unemployed,illiterate and the poor.New generation thieves may be rich,well educated and holding high dignitary positions.These thieves are extra smart.They have bigger network than the police do.They maintain high cooperation and close monitoring of each and every person in the network.The best thing is they have enough resources.
The special reason why the younger generation want to become a thief is showcasing to everyone that they are the smartest and the best.they use highly technical things to commit crimes.They pose a challenge to everyone.Its impossible to identify a thief.He will be just normal with the rest of society.
Type of crimes they commit will range from robbing the banks,hacking the ATM networks,stealing the most precious things.They don't go for small and silly mistakes.They have everything planned.Some mischievous thieves might even pose for the public by making some great escape plan.Still now the type of thefts we are seeing in the movies are going to become a reality in the near future.So police and people are you ready for it???
Old thieves :
Reason :- family profession,Poverty, and unemployment
who commit : mostly illiterate
What they steal : Anything like pickpocketing to bank robbery
Methods they use : purely traditional [ using chloroform,breaking up in mid night hours]
Faults : Most of time gets caught because of leaving the sufficient clue for police

New generation thieves
Reason :- To prove they are smart..aaaha smarter...smartest and the best
who commit :- Highly qualified professionals,educated people,Very intelligent kids,High dignitaries...
what they steal ;- Anything which is worthy than the worthiest.Hacking networks,robbing banks in cinematic fashion [ you wont have a single sign tha something is getting planned infront of your eyes],museum things
Methods they use : Highly technical [ using robots,jamming networks,destroying logs.........],Disguising as someone else
Faults :- hardly they leave any..If at all all they leave any it wont be sufficient to catch...Everything is planned

SO people get ready to watch the new generation thieves [:P]

Youth lacking this

Today,s youth -They are crazy,They are ,They are brave,They love enjoying the life.Simply they are fully loaded.But there is something which these people lacks [especially in the metro's] and that is the most vital thing needed for a human life.Its common sense.In this article ill quote you some examples to show how much extreme is this new disease in the youth!!!!!!!!
I study in NCR region and i know many students from around the country.Some days back i was going in a auto with some students of a engineering institute which is just beside my university.They are discussing this way.
One student asks "Dude,can we install two OS in a single PC"
The other replies "why not,I have two OS in ma pc.One is Windows XP professional and other is Ms Office"
Then the first one asks this Microsoft seems to be the king man
The other replies "not only MS,there is one more company google.Im trying for its OS but cant get it.Saala mil hi nahi raha hai."
The horrible thing is these guys hold 70% in engineering and are slected for a software company.I pity that company.

Most of the times these guys don't know whats around them.Some guy asks me some place which is just in the street next to mine.They don't know how to deal with different kinds of people..They don,t know where to spend and where not to spend the money.Most of them are like "frogs in the well".They just know spending the bucks given by their parents in the cafeteria or going to mall or going to party or in some designer closett.They dont know other places where you can get optimistic prices of things.They dont know what world will be like when they get out of their parents hands.They don't know whats real life.And some students study like hell with out having general knowledge.I dont know what fun they feel in their life all the day seeing book.This youth doesnt know how to speak with different types of people[autowala,rickshaw wala and paraathewala....].Some behave like real stupid kids asking very simple questions in the lectures.The most comical thing is that these guys with out brains look to most of the the gals as the most smart guys.[:)].
But the guys who use common sense properly are really going to have great time because they know how to use this world.They know how to enjoy each part of the life properly.Guys who come from rural and small towns are having nice sense of humor than metro guys.Because they are grown up in a environment where they see and deal with different kinds of people.They are exceptionally brighter in not getting deceived by others like metro people.


Social animals

From demands of the masses,Im elaborating to you who are called the high society kids and why they are called social animals???Luck and chromosomes play a major role in who gets cast with the golden spoon,but being a socialite is far above that..what it means is the way of your life.You need to do somethings to be a socialite
You need to have a boldfaced name
A person who looks graceable in page3
And finally you should be primping,pampering and partying all the time.
A socialite hangs only with other socialites.The reason is a socialite can grow socially under other socialite.The common thing in socialites is they would never do any work.
Tips for beginners :
Live on top of food chain
should be hot,urbane,anglicized and preferably moneyed
love the shutterbugs,air kisses and even touching you freely

But don't take these people as b grade kids.They are no more less than celebrities except some lack of utilitarian skills.

Advantages :
Never wait in queue
Always will have a table full of drinks like Grey goose..
Rubbing shoulders with celebs
being on family and friends lisr for discounts and sales at boutiques
invitations to the most glamorous sairess
have the hottest arm candy
on the page3 all the time
Invitations to 5 star hotels

Most known socialites are magazine editors[unlimited acess to designer closets],actress,host,model,publicist

Suggestions :
A normal person feels u people never think of your own family making your kids get ruined like you in the early stages of their life due to lack of parental care.Its not bad to have a great social life,But maintain everything with in the limits,so that no one have damage either you or your family

American's spend more time infornt of computer than wives

An overwhelming 65 per cent of Americans spend more time with a computer than with their spouse, according to a new public survey released on Tuesday.

Conducted by the research firm Kelton Research, the 'Cyber Stress' study confirmed consumers' growing relationship with technology in their everyday lives, with 8 out of 10 Americans (84 per cent) saying they were more dependent on their home computer now than they were just three years ago.

The survey also revealed that the average consumer has experienced computer troubles eight times over the last three years, with the average American wasting 12 hours per month due to problems with their home computer. In addition, 52 per cent of Americans describe their most recent experience with a computer problem as one of anger, sadness or alienation.

Considering the large role computers play in people's lives today, experts said that computer problems can sometimes cause significant emotional distress, similar to what happens when a problem occurs between spouses.

"As computers become increasingly pervasive in our lives, our relationships with them can begin to seem almost as important as a relationship with a significant other. When problems occur with the computer, it often leaves people feeling frustrated or helpless," Dr Robi Ludwig, renowned psychotherapist, said.

"Like any relationship, the test comes not when things are going well but when times are tough. And unfortunately in the case of their computers, things are not going so well for Americans," said the survey commissioned by, a leading provider of software and services that automate the resolution of technology problems.

Is 0.99 =1????

What would you say if I said that 0.999… (Also written 0.\bar{9}or0.\dot{9}) is equal to one? NO! Obviously… since we think that let there be any number of 9’s after the decimal, its still infinitesimally smaller than 1. That’s what I thought out loud when I first saw this article. But the weird thing is that there exists not one but numerous proofs of varying difficulties proving the above fact that indeed they are equal if we take into account Real Number System i.e., the normal numbers we use for the mathematically challenged.

Proof by Fractions:
Algebraic Proof:

The proof which is so obvious is based on a few basic assumptions of Real Numbers but they are assumptions anyways. Any one of those assumptions have to be undermined to make this equality void.

For A more lucid account see Wikipedia’s Featured Article on 0.999…

Wass up iphone???

The iPhone is a combination camera phone, PDA, multimedia player, and wireless communication device announced by Apple CEO Steve Jobs during his keynote address at the Macworld Conference & Expo on 9 January 2007.[1][2] The iPhone will support push e-mail, mobile telephone, text messaging, web browsing and other wireless information services. Apple has indicated that OS X will run on the iPhone, but has not clearly revealed the distinction between Mac OS X, the OS running on Macs, and OS X on the iPhone.

For Complete Information on iPhone Specifications and Technical Details Follow this: iPhone

The Issue:

Infogear originally filed for the U.S. trademark “I Phone” on September 3, 1993, and later applied for “iPhone” on 20 March 1996. Both trademarks have been registered in the United States since 1999. Cisco Systems obtained the iPhone trademarks after its acquisition of Infogear in 2000. The term has been used on the (Infogear) iPhone since 1997 and (Linksys) iPhone was launched in 2006. Cisco’s trademarks cover “communications terminals comprising computer hardware and software providing integrated telephone, data communications and personal computer functions” (1993 filing) and “computer hardware and software for providing integrated telephone communication with computerized global information networks” (1996 filing).

Cisco representatives stated on 9 January 2007, that their company and Apple had been in negotiations regarding the trademark and expected to reach an agreement about the name shortly, according to documents received by Apple’s lawyers the night before the Macworld keynote event. Cisco has since announced they are suing Apple over the infringement of the trademark iPhone, seeking an injunction in federal court to prohibit Apple from using the name.

A separate U.S. trademark application for “iPhone” was filed on 26 September 2006, by a heretofore unknown entity named Ocean Telecom Services LLC, covering “handheld and mobile devices”. The application claims a priority date of 27 March 2006 based on a trademark filing in Trinidad and Tobago, serial number 37060. Apple had previously filed under its own name for the “iPhone” trademark in Australia, claiming the same priority date and using the same Trinidad and Tobago application, indicating that, in all likelihood, Ocean Telecom is a front company for Apple.

Apple has made filings in various countries outside the U.S., including Australia, where a separate iPhone trademark was filed in 2002 and registered in 2005. It is presently unclear whether Cisco owns any rights to “iPhone” elsewhere.

According to the WHOIS database, Apple owns the generally non-profit organizations domain name (domain created 1999-12-06), Cisco owns the network-oriented domain name (domain created 1998-01-28), and the Internet Phone Company LLC based in Santa Rosa, California owns the commercial domain name (domain created 1995-08-24). Internet Phone Company LLC is not a subsidary of Apple or Cisco. The site was hit with a surge of traffic following the Jobs keynote and was temporarily taken down.

The use of the name iphone in secondary TLD is unclear. It was reported that, as early as November 2006, that in some countries the relevant domain names are owned by individuals, including, for example, and

Yet none of these guarantees that she will beat her opponents.or manage and master the issues that have long vexed her,like Iraq war and universal health insurance.Even she herself told her nearby that she is more worried about winning the democratic nomination than winning the general elections against a republican.with this presidential campaign starting far earlier than any other in history,Clinton,senator barrack obama of Illinois and their5 democratic reivals find themselves facing 400 more days before the nomination is sealed up.Each of these days could bring a surprise or flub or controversy that might change their fortune.
The current battlefield is full of heavy hitters and Clinton is going to face formidable challenges.OBama is the strongest rival thus far in attracting crowds of screaming fans.John Edwards,the former senator from North Carolina,was the 2004 vice presidential nominee,and has staked out a clear anti-war position;and senators Joseph Biden jr and Christopher Dodd are seasoned lawmakers who lead powerful committees,giving them access to donors and th media spotlight

Real estate - the new gambling business

Real Estate- the new face of business,is turning to be the most profitable business of the present times.With the increasing amount of risk[rapid raise and fall of prices] in investing their money on other things like gold,stocks......people are turning to invest their money on land.As the population increases and the towns devolop into cities,these lands prices are going to touch a high.This is the strategy of the realtor's.But real estate business is not that much easy one to do.what are the risk's involved??
Always remember that if one person gains something in a business,someone else loses it.The same applies to real estate.If someone gains by selling the land at a higher price,the other might lose after the prices fall down.Lands also have a price level that reach saturation.Its the real estate brokers that create the price boom in a certain area to get their land's to be sold at higher prices.Real estate business most of times is done by mouth.Broker's try to bluff you saying the words like that this land has got bright future.What is meant to them is just the money they get in the transaction.Sometimes influential people proposes some future development in the area to push the land prices up.But the real fact will be that some of their relatives might have lands around there.Once the lands are sold out,the proposed development is never again talked of.And the one who buys the land when the prices are high is ditched.
Some problems the normal people have before and after buying the land are:-
Broker's can ditch you[might sell you a useless land]
The other person can sell you govt land or fake you
No guarantee of price increase
Forced acquisition of your land by others[major problem for normal people]

Precautions and suggestions:-

Buy a land from the people you know
Never let the whole thing in the hands of the broker or property dealer

know about a person who sell you the land before you buy[trusted sources]

Never buy a land when the prices are at a high
know about the land.
Dont invest on land if you want immediate profits

Enquire about the land in the government office whether its government land or not[sometimes corrupted officers allow the realtor's to sell such lands.Beware of them]
Keep checking your land now and then to avoid acquisitions by others
Invest on outskirts of city as areas inside will already be at saturated prices
Never pay the whole amount until the registration is over
construct something on the land as soon as buy to avoid forced acquisition.
If you want to do big business with real estate ,a bit of political support might be necessary

Investing in the land is not a bad thing.but be a bit attentive.else you might get loss
