An old world journalist who went to the light. Sorab Ghaswalla is a born-again chronicler (this time digital), a newbie Internet Entrepreneur and a digital world consultant, all rolled in one. One of the Internet’s earliest advocates, he was snared by the Web in 1999. He’s been in the zone ever since. To give a more formal touch to his Internet nomadism, he recently founded an Internet consultancy firm, New Age Content Services LLP (www.newagecontentservices.com). The firm also owns two Sites – What’s New On The Net (http://www.whatsnewonthenet.com) and the 1st-ever Digital World Lifestyle Blog called Always Above the Fold (http://www.alwaysabovethefold.com), which Sorab edits. Roaming the labyrinths of the digital world, he occasionally surfaces in the real one. Because of which his family and friends have given him the moniker -The Digital Monk.

Crystal ball gazing does not sit well with me. There’s always the chance of losing one’s shirt if the predictions don’t come true. Nevertheless, I shall ...

There weren’t any major, path-breaking breakthroughs, and readers are free to disagree but only by providing concrete evidence. I would think history will look at 2012 as a year of plodding progress on the emerging technology front, a milepost rather than a ground-breaking ...
You would once have had to be a nutty professor or James Bond to do the stuff that I am about to talk about. Imagine dumping your “out-of-juice” mobile into your handbag and taking it out some time later, fully charged. Or walking into a room with your "dead" tablet, and re-charging it without ever plugging it in a socket charger. Fallacy or fact? Let me put it this way -- the white coat R & D scientists tell us ...
Five emerging technologies could become mainstream next year. A list announcing the constituents was released by The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA), a heavyweight trade body in the US consumer electronics market, recently. Mind you, these are not products but new technology trends that we are talking about.
So let the drums roll as I list the five...
Next-gen TVs and displays
Evolution of the audio market
Mobile revolution in Africa
Technology in education
To anybody following new technologies, 3D printing topping the list is a ...
News recently dropped that the new version of the Aakash, India’s “student” version of a tablet computer, will launch on 11 November this year. The slate will be priced around US$42 for now, until the numbers scale up enough to pull the tag below US$35. The question is – does this second attempt come too late in the day for this little mickey?
This is a first anywhere in the world, perhaps. An elected government getting into the “business” of e-learning ...
