Local phone search heats up In Hyderabad


I just saw a couple of blogs mention that Google has started Voice search in Hyderabad ( I am going to be there in July). The Economic Times has a story where Microsoft is introducing local Search using SMS.

I am going to check it out when I am there. I am thrilled that Google has decided to try this service first in Hyderabad.

One of the first services that I liked here in the US was Tellme that microsoft has since bought.

My wife's viewpoint is that it is difficult to sleep on the Emirates flight since it starts in the morning. I enjoy the morning flight. My game plan is to sleep less for a few days to my Emirates flight. Once on the flight, I divide …
