AOL in India

Better late then never. Finally AOL also arrived in emerging internet market of India with a dedicated Indian domain

They come up with Messenger service, free e-mail, news section and also for Indian audience they also have comprehensive coverage of Cricket, Bollywood, Hollywood, International Music and scintillating ringtones.

They are going to face tough competition from established player like Yahoo, Rediff, MSN, Google in all area. As these big players already have there niche position in messenger, email and news services. Also many utilities and various services from Yahoo and Google with only one email id are tough to move.

Still our best wishes are with AOL and lets see if they can come up with something new which can fit them nicely in indian web arena.

Komli for Advertisers-Publishers Communication

Komli is a latest advertisers-publishers communication/contact point in the online advertising space. They recently received Venture Capital Fund from Draper Fisher Jurvetson and Helion Ventures, two leading venture capital firms from US and India.

Komli also has blog and event section which is not active yet. I hope they will put some words very soon.

There career section shows that they are looking for new talents for various posts in different location where they have offices like US and India.
