SkyDrive

Online storage is not a new idea, what’s new is Microsoft’s SkyDrive online product (www.skydrive.live.com) initiated under the Windows Live umbrella. Being an admirer of Microsoft products I register here too. We can use our existing hotmail/live ID for login and start using 500 MB free space which comes by default. If you are looking for getting more space, currently I didn’t see any such upgrade option but you might expect ‘purchase’ link in coming days. We can share folders and files with everyone on internet or only with our friends or secure it for private use.
You can browse my public folders here

Yes! The URL is hard (in fact impossible) to remember. It would have been more impressive if we could replace the puzzled alphanumeric characters with our hotmail/live ID like this pavan.gayakwad.skydrive.live.com isn’t it? I don’t think that Microsoft hasn’t thought about it, I am just wondering what stopped them doing this. Anyways, internet users have more than one option, so it’s easy for them (us) to look for an alternate free service provider who can satisfy their (our) expected features list. Very few stick to their favorite company products though they suffer from lack of facilities. Now a day internet world is working on “More you offer for free, More popular you will be” trend and this certainly made internet usage more popular than ever.

Why Akbar was Great?

I have fanatical interest to be acquainted with what made Indian emperors take influential decisions during their reign. Few great kings’ valuable decisions created a remarkable history.

When Akbar accepts the marriage proposal of Hindu King (Bharmal of Amer), he wishes to make an attempt to set an example for two culture and religions and convey the message of peace. Later, destiny takes him to the critical path of life having most depraved political and family oriented problems. Being a true great emperor, Akbar learns and conclude challenges by demonstrating his exceptional leadership qualities. With his verdicts, Akbar stands as an incomparable king of all time. “Jodha Akbar” – brings 16th-century incidents to life and shows beginning part of Akbar’s married life which was, in fact, a deal for political gain. This decision slowly unleashes Akbar’s loving life, internal dreadful politics, painfully desirous people around him and betraying family members.
