Airtel 4G-The Fastest Network Ever.

It is hard to imagine a day without internet as we are addicted to it. We have crossed the generation of minimum usage of world wide web, thanks to advanced technology. When I was introduced to internet the speed was just 512 kbps, it was terrible. I had to wait for an hour to get my exam results with that much speed. Imagine how annoying if the browsing speed drops!
As time changed, there are lot of internet service providers in the market. Due to smart phone revolution, the service providers introduced pocket internet. Gone are the days when we used to send SMS through service provider, now mobile applications like What’s app, Viber, skype etc rule the messaging world. These applications with the help of mobile internet reach out to all class of people. Many desktop applications have been transformed to mobile application, and the reason behind this change is Mobile internet.

The generation of pocket internet has changed dramatically over a year. Earlier it was G, then came 2G, then 3G and now 4G. The difference is the browsing speed. As the name indicates, the throughput and performance of mobile internet have consistently increased over generations.
You wish to watch a movie? Do not have to stand in long queue for hours to get the tickets. With the help of mobile application and pocket internet book your tickets from anywhere you are. Now that’s something which you had not thought of couple of years back.

Taking this as an example, let’s analyse the performance of mobile internet. You are far away from desktop computer and wish to book movie tickets using your mobile device. You turn ON your mobile internet and start the ticket application. Time’s running and you have to book the tickets, but the speed of the internet is slow. It barely loads the page..! Have you ever imagined how frustrating would that be..!? Forget about booking your seats, you would not be able to see the availability at all. So the summary is, though you have the privileges of booking the tickets due to bad internet service it could not be done.

On the contrary, if you have activated Airtel on your mobile things would be much better. Book the tickets on the fly without any hassle, watch or download movies in less time, watch your favorite sports-live without any delay. Imagine how cool that life would be. It is all possible, indeed.

At present, many mobile service providers have offered mobile internet pack. But it is left to consumer to choose it wisely. By far, per my experience Airtel has been outstanding. The network is stable and versatile. Now, from the same service provider 4G (http://www.airtel.in/4g/) has been introduced across the nation. It is the first telecom provider to introduce 4G service and the best part is, the tariff is same as 3G! So, experience the fastest internet on your fingertips.

Indi-Flip Jugalbandi..!

It was time for yet another blogger's meet, perhaps the most happening one in recent times. The blogger dad--Indiblogger tied up with master e-commerce site Flipkart and hosted an amazing party at Hard Rock Cafe, Bengaluru. Initially I did not receive the invitation, however upon request Indiblogger was kind enough to send one. I was thrilled, was counting days to attend the meet. Meet up topic was to discuss about Flipkart's new feature--#FlipkartImageSearch. 

I checked into the venue exactly by 1030 AM, many of the fellow bloggers had assembled already. Many of them were familiar. I had met them in the past blogger's meet. Although I grew up in this city, barely had I noticed this rugged place. It's a perfect place to enjoy rock music. The show began with heavy metal guitar and bouncy songs...!

Massive screen displayed tweets of all participants. It was interesting to read everyone's tweets.



After a brief introduction of bloggers who had come from different places team Flipkart jumped into action and started speaking about their journey.


"How many of you shop from Flipkart ?" To start with, Flipkart's chief marketing officer asked this question. Believe me, everybody in the hall raised their hands ! I was shocked myself. I could imagine the large scale transactions happening from their site, across the country. It's indeed a great effort.

Team Flipkart addressing the gathering.
The officer explained the amount of work that is done on daily basis in their warehouses, to fulfill our wishes. Being a flipkart customer since beginning I have seen how it grew and dominated e-commerce business in India. 

In order to improve the shopping experience, Team Flipkart have come up with a unique idea. Flipkart Image Search-- install Flipkart's app on your mobile, take photographs of any fashion item which you wish to buy, browse through flipkart's catalog, find the exact item or related items, place the order. Bingo.! Is it not simple, I found it immensely helpful.



The team then asked us to experience the look and feel of the feature. Fellow bloggers shot many questions related to flipkart's shopping application. Flipkart's team without losing patience addressed all the queries. It was informative.  

We then got sometime for beverages. I met few bloggers and shared with them the work that I do. Many of them were foodies, poem lovers, story tellers, travelers. 

So, the next event was interesting. A group of 20 members were formed. I was part of Team-5 our team leader named the team as Vyapam, needless to say why..! The rules of the game was to find as many fashion items as possible using Flipkart's image search app within 10 mins.
Without losing any time the team members started clicking photographs of shoes, watches, bags, shirts, pants, wallets and searched on app. 

One of the employee from Flipkart validated our items on flipkart app. About 32 items matched through Flipkart image search feature..! A whooping number which none of the team made it. We had won.!! That was fantastic. 

Staff of Hard Rock Cafe.
The last leg of the event was food. People thronged to dining set and tasted delicious pasta, ice cream with brownies. It was yummy. As an icing on top was a troop dance by Hard Rock Cafe's staff entertained the audience. 

One thing which impressed me was the book release. Indiblogger released a book which have the collection of 10 love stories authored by co-bloggers. It was an amazing gesture and tribute paid to all passionate bloggers who are creative writers. 

Indiblogger's collection.
With a free copy of the book and loads of fun it was time for me to depart until next smashing blogger's meet. Thanks to Indiblogger..!
