Evolving TV...

The way the content is delivered to telivisions has been on a fast paced change recently... starting from the antenna, cable TV, to set-top boxes and then HD...to the growing use of internet enabled TV's allowing to watch streaming content... Looks like it is not far where the channels will turn into streaming web adresses! and make the set-top boxes an extinct creature...
Internet TV will allow tracking the viewing pattern and suggest the programmes or the streaming addresses the viewer would be interested in...also allowing the viewer to share, tweet and do all other social networking activities which is curently done using a second device such as a smart phone, pc or a tablet... Internet is not expensive while the internet enabled TV's are...it might take a few years for the prices to drop - like 10 years back the amount you paid for a pc brings you a higher config pc today!

eight years back!

Eight years back I wrote this article when I was to join Thomson Reuters (then Reuters). Then it was the February 2005 and I was in my 5th Trimester of MBA at Christ College and the interview for this job happened just before a day of the final exams. Change is the constant, and lot did change... From then what I was, and to what I am now...there is a lot of change (on a side note, the traffic and expenses in Bangalore did change a lot).. Working with wonderful people - team mates, my managers, I did learn a lot...from managing people to providing precise requirements to developers and understanding, cultivating the habit to provide timely and accurate data to clients.. It has been a wonderful journey since I began working with this company. Got a chance to work with inspiring, enthusiastic people...and the experience has been great. I made a lot of good friends and enjoyed every day being here. My schoolmates say I will retire in this company..Well I have not seen future!! 

I am happy for one behavior not changing during these eight years, that is the curiosity to know/learn about anything that interests me...be it learning calculus or blogging after an year! I used to write about movies, travel in this blog...now I find it so difficult to find time to punch some keys to put a post on this blog.. Whoever said that there is no free time, and you need to make one, he/she is correct in saying so..therefore keep checking this space, I may be able to make some time to get on the blog roll as I did during past few years. And now with technology advancing, blogging is on the go...
