XBox Finally making some real money

Its a shame that in this cut throat world of bottom lines and margins, Microsoft had to sell it flagship console at a loss and hope to make money in volmes. Well, the results are out and MS’s entertainment division has actually turned up a tidy profit this quarter too, and that last quarter’s profit […]

Atleast in the UK. Engadget is reporting, on the basis of a leaked O2 memo that the company has managed to empty its inventory and is not going to replenish the stock as it has reached it’s end of life. The recent price cuts in the UK have no doubt a part to play in […]

Day 8: Tang Tse to Leh

The accomodation that we stayed in at Tang Tse was easily the most luxurious we’d stayed in ever since the trip started. That showed since none of us wanted to leave our cosy beds in the morning. The guest rooms were next to a small stream and overlooking a garden with ducks and rabbits for […]
