Vodafone (India) has slashed roaming rates on all networks other than Airtel !!!

It seems they haven’t got any authorization yet from Airtel to offer these charges to their customers when they use the Airtel network while roaming. So what this effectively means is that suppose you(Vodafone customer) go out of town and are on an Airtel network while roaming, the old call charges would apply to you. The same holds true the other way round i.e. Airtel subscribers roaming on Vodafone netwrok.

So until these two telecom giants sort out the issue, you would be able to enjoy Re. 1 incoming, Re.1 outgoing(local) and Re. 1.5 outgoing (STD) while roaming only if you happen to use either their own network or of some other operator.

Speaking of vodafone and airtel, have you ever tried the link www.airtel.com ? Type it in your browser and check what happens :)

Google makes Gmail faster

19 May 2008 In: Google Stuff

Yup, you heard it right. As if the previous speed of gmail wasn’t enough, google has just made gmail faster than ever, or so they claim in the gmail blog .

I’m a gmail user myself and I guess the change in speed is noticeable.

What they have done this time to speed up gmail is that they have tried to reduce the number of HTTP requests that are made to the server once you click the "sign in" button. According to the tech lead of gmail performance, who wrote the blog post announcing the increase in speed by around 20%, gmail previously made 14 to 24 HTTP requests whereas now it only takes 4 requests to do the job!!!

Great going guys. Sometimes it really makes me feel proud to be a GMAIL user :)
