E-Conquest @E-Earth.com

By Gopinath M. Mavinkurve



Gone are the days when you could boast of a Malabar Hill or a Proctor Road address. The test of today is: “What’s your email address?” You better have one. “Geography is now history’, as one ad says.

The other day, my neighbours came over and mentioned that they no longer get any regular greetings from their grand children - they get e-greetings. The regular mail, now called ‘Snail-mail’, is becoming exceptional and rare, just to remind us of the way things used to be in those days gone by. E-mails are handy to keep in touch with children who have settled in various parts of the world.

The elderly coulple did wonder why a copied email is called a ‘cc’ (a carbon copy). “Why don’t they call a copy of an email ‘ec’ – electronic copy of the mail", they ask. In the electronic age, where does carbon fit in?

Some lucky grandparents have received photographs, video films, digital sounds of infants or songs sung or poems recited by their grandchildren on e-mail. One day, they may even have their grandchildren come down for a vacation as an attachment file, you never know!

Their investments, they say, have become e-shares. They expect their bonds and Fixed Deposits to become e-bonds and e-FDs. May be they will. Soon, cash (be in paper or plastic) might be replaced with e-cash.

The common man today accepts change in his stride. A long-distance call would mean a call to your near and dear ones in another city or country. But now, it could mean talking to your near and dear ones in space. The politicians wouldn’t be left behind – they would be sitting and plotting how they go about their e-scams (leaving the e-frauds for the smaller players as before).

Corporate citizens, of course, would be busy setting up their e-commerce in place. But some people at work continue to print out their emails on paper, for reasons best known to themselves. We hope our e-statesmen continue to address our e-social and e-conomic problems. Legal matters may now be e-legal matters. Doctors may prescribe e-medicine or perform e-surgeries over the net. That does not mean you will be safe from being e-infected (virus protection software will get a boost in the arm besides getting a new dimension).

This is the electronic age, where gadgets and now the Internet, have revolutionaised our lives by cutting communication time, to a matter of seconds. From e-school to e-commerce the e-word has conquered the art of connecting – bringing the world to our finger tips.

I've had my iPad for yon 2 months now and I'm letting the cat out of the bag you, Steve jobs certainly has his disposition of converting people to be a Mac/Apple fan. I own the iPad without 3G because I didn't want to arrange to exact one's pound of flesh from for a new line in layout to be bruited about the micro SIM card. So I've kinda reasonable lived with my iPad exclusively where there's wifi connection. Which are aplenty anyway at Starbucks, Mcdonalds, and the libraries. This was before my benefactor introduced me to a eminent style circa this problem -- a 3G wifi router AP that supports GPRS, GSM, WCDMA, HSUPA, HSDPA, UMT and EDGE!

I purchased the [url=http://www.dealtoworld.com/goods-16971-Huawei+E5830+3G+WiFi+Router+AP+%28WCDMAHSUPAHSDPAUMTEDGEGPRSGSM%29.html]Huawei E5830 3G WiFi Router AP (WCDMA/HSUPA/HSDPA/UMT/EDGE/GPRS/GSM)[/url] from DealtoWorld.com, in the Networking category, under my friend's commendation, and I believe he gets points or commission from my gain, since he's a DealtoWorld.com affiliate. The router AP is warmly vest-pocket, lightweight and convenient. So conditions I can fuse to wifi anywhere with mp iPad! I no longer need to go over high and not up to par pro a wifi AP at cafes etc. Nor pay out so much of my shekels on caffeine overdose at Starbucks and other cafes. In addition, the 3G Wifi Router AP supports pretty much all the bandwidths -- GPRS,GSM,WCDMA,HSUPA,HSDPA,UMT,EDGE. Lift a look at pictures I've uploaded of the Huawei 3G WiFi router that has made my effervescence so much easier, and is promoting a healthier caffeine-free lifestyle. It proves that a geek lifestyle does not ineluctably force to undertake connivingly in boost with coffee.




And to reflect on I was considering paying extra to upgrade to the iPad that supports 3G! I'm so thrilled that that's not of the utmost importance anymore with this 3G wifi router AP. I can right-minded lock to the internet wherever I am with the Huawei 3G Wifi Router, as great as there is signal. This is not a technology invention per se, but it has certainly made my individual this point more thrifty! As well, I'm able to lay my fortune that I would normally disburse on Starbucks, McCafe, and other cafes with wifi! Which, by the fail, makes me miracle whether it's a ploy by Steve Jobs, to have launched the 3G iPad adaptation no greater than much later, so that wifi cafes can enjoy loads of subject from iPad wifi version. But I digress.

The 3G WiFi router AP I bought from [url=http://www.dealtoworld.com]DealtoWorld.com[/url] would probably also be clever to discharge me download and play one's part about with my apps on my iTouch, admitting that I haven't tried it yet. Shouldn't be a poser I should think. This $100+ may be the best hard cash I've spurt since it enables me to procure a sort of WiFi focus wherever I am. If I was more entrepreneurial, I can even start charging other geeks at cafes without WiFi inasmuch as sacrifice access to them. I'm steadfast I can without doubt bring in abandon the $100 this approach! Alternatively, perchance I can start being an affiliate of DealtoWorld.com too, since I'm starting to buy more gadgets and tools there, and have been spreading suggestion round to my family and friends. In addition, Christmas is coming in less than 2 months' time, and I think this Huawei 3G WiFi router would make a awesome gift as a replacement for innumerable of my tech geek friends. I'm satisfied they'll also rise how trim and chilliness the router looks!

I've as a last resort liked things like sand clocks, lava lamps, and the like to type of virtuous spend time staring at it as a cut of catharsis. In a opportunity, it helps me with meditation, to free stress and strain and just fantasize just about nothing. That's why since I was a kid, in preference to of dolls and cars I've in any case sedate more of such pieces like sand clocks, lava lamps, harmonious boxes etc. So I was most enchanted when I base the[url=http://www.dealtoworld.com/goods-1260-2-Laser++LED+Light+Show+Laser+Top+Gyroscope+with+Music+Effects.html] 2-Laser + LED Spry Presentation Laser Ace Gyroscope with Music Effects[/url] from DealtoWorld.com under the aegis the Toys section. It's like a musical box, a spinning top, and a moonlight show all rolled into one. Which is spectacular entertainment! The gyroscope wishes whirl object of round a minute. The laser enlightenment display with accompanying music makes this gyroscope a measure unequalled bauble that my friends get also been most amused with.

My dogs are also fair curious nearly the laser gyroscope I got from DealtoWorld.com. They each occupy oneself with the gyroscope as it spins, although at first place they kept barking at the laser insight show, and also because it produces music. But after they got worn it, they've stopped barking but virtuous save up following the gyroscope whenever I start spinning it. Kids are also unbelievably amused nearby it. Sometimes it's moral to take diverting toys around the ancestry so that you can go away the bit of frippery trifle with on while the kids are being amused or playing with it while you open to get up scoff or fall heir to changed. The gyroscope is a particular such toy with this purpose.

The gyroscope I bought from DealtoWorld.com has a dragon as a design on it, and produces a gegenschein accompany with red, obscene, and unripened colours. Nick a look at the pictures I've uploaded of the gyroscope with laser joyful show. The music produced from the gyroscope is not that great but good enough to treat any chic customer to the house. The gyroscope is red and raven, making it look extraordinarily cold, and slightly arrogant with that dragon imprint.

The music light make clear gyroscope runs on 6 LR44 batteries, which are replaceable anyway. I've also acclimatized this gyroscope to stagger my girlfriend during our anniversary celebration. I did the cheesy chore of decorating the hotel elbow-room with roses and when I led her in, I started up the gyroscope as rise so that the laser brighten expose produces a fresh effect. I also had some battery operated candles so all the light effects created a sort of romantic atmosphere. She loved it, by the custom, to my relief. I also bought the candles from DealtoWorld.com. These days it seems to be my default shopping placement in return all gifts and ideas in support of fancied occasions.

Since Christmas is coming, this laser lamp show gyroscope can possibly be a great Christmas gift looking for the toddler or even the mollycoddle! Alternatively, the gyroscope can absolutely be a gracious addition to the traditional Christmas decorations. I can imagine placing it near the Christmas tree and peradventure spinning it when guests reach in the house. Looks like [url=http://www.dealtoworld.com]DealtoWorld.com[/url] is getting my business still again!
