Fwd: World’s cheapest tablet Aakash to be out today - around 2K INR


NEW DELHI: You may soon be able to lay your hands on the $35 tablet, in retail stores albeit at almost double the price. 

The $35 tablet nicknamed Aakash, will be available at retail stores at a maximum retail price of Rs 2999 ($60), shortly after its launch on Wednesday, said its maker Datawind. 

"The Rs 3,000 figure is the 'maximum suggested retail price' of the commercial version of the product which we will offer with an embedded cellular modem and SIM," said Suneet Singh Tuli, CEO of Datawind, maker of the world's cheapest tablet. 

The $60 tablet for retail sales will have an inbuilt cellular modem and SIM to access internet, which will be absent in the $35 device, supplied to the government. 

As a business, we need to make a profit, and our distribution channel needs to make a profit, which is all covered in the MRP of Rs 2,999," Mr Tuli told * ET*. 

Both versions of the tablet, will run on Google's Android platform, with WiFi connectivity for internet access and cloud storage. The tablets will have 256 MB of RAM, a 32 GB expandable memory slot and two USB ports. 

The commercial version of the tablet would have no duty waivers or subsidy, as in the government's version. An inbuilt cellular modem and SIM card will add to the price of the commercial tablet. 

The commercial version of the tablet, is expected be out within 60 days, of its launch on October 5. 

Datawind adds that it is supplying to the government at a price of Rs 2200, which includes sales tax and replacement warranty. "The $35 price is achievable at higher volume levels. When we supply the product to the government at $35, then too it will allow us a margin, albeit at higher volumes," Datawind CEO added.

Fwd: How to live

In 1923, one of the world's most successful financiers met at Chicago's Edgewater Beach Hotel. Financially, they literally 'held the world by the tail'. Anything that money could buy was within their grasp; they were RICH-RICH-RICH! Look at their names and the positions they held:

CHARLES SCHWAB was President of the largest steel company.
SAMUEL INSULL was President of the largest electric utility company.
HOWARD HOPSON was President of the largest gas company.
ARTHUR CUTTEN was the great what speculator.
RICHARD WHITNEY was President of the New York Stock Exchange.
ALBERT FALL was Secretary of Interior in President Harding's Cabinet.
LEON FRASER was President of the Bank of International Settlements.
JESSE LIVERMORE was the greatest 'bear' on Wall Street.
IVAR KRUGER was head of the world's largest monopoly.

We must admit, that here were gathered a group of the world's most successful men of the time: Men who had found the secret of making Money.
Now let us see where these very men were 25 years later in 1948:

CHARLES SCHWAB lived on borrowed money for five years and died bankrupt.
SAMUEL INSULL dies a fugitive from justice and penniless in a foreign land.
HOWARD HOPSON turned insane.
ARTHUR CUTTEN died insolvent abroad.
RICHARD WHITNEY was just released from the Sing Sing Penitentiary.
ALBERT FALL was pardoned from prison so he could die at home - broke.
LEON FRASER committed suicide.
JESSE LIVERMORE committed suicide.
IVAR KRUGER committed suicide.

What happened in 25 years? They were brilliant in their respective field. They mastered the art of making money and the art of enjoying material life, but never learned HOW TO LIVE! A vast amount of their talent and potential went down the drain! Their lives were out of BALANCE! Do we know HOW TO LIVE A BALANCED LIFE? Do we know the PURPOSE and then place the foundation of our lives on VALUES based MEANS which last, bound to make life worth living and help achieve the purpose. All this give a meaning to life to live or otherwise we are just spending time here. We are always getting ready to live, but never living. We never live and are always in the expectation of living. Unless we decide to get into things, values and means that really matter we are bound to turn into people who really do not matter. The great use of life is to spend it for something to give it a big meaning that will outlast it. The price of this all important something is the amount of life we exchange for it. What we are exchanging our lives for and how many of us are really aware of this?

No one ever finds life worth living - one has to make it worth living - Anonymous
