What is Ello? It is the social network of your dreams, and that is a nightmare 29.9.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
The social networks we already have are not giving us what we want. Were turning to the new thing because its new, not because its good You may have noticed that, in the last few days, Twitter and Facebook have started to sound like a cockney convenience-store greeter. Ello. Ello. Ello. Whos on Ello? Find me on Ello. Do you have an Ello invite? Do I need to know what Ello is? You do not need to know what Ello is, but for the curious, its the latest stab at creating a Facebook killer . Its a very designed-looking website, with lots of white space and circles; it looks like the mobile game Dots. Dots got 5m players in its first three months, so someone may have reasoned that the Dots version of Facebook would be a guaranteed success. Beyond that, Ellos distinction is that it doesnt allow advertising, and it doesnt collect or sell users personal data. You can also follow people as either friends or noise, and they dont find out where youve sorted them, which is a handy feature for folks who know lots of ...

Subramanian Swamy: The man who gets to have the last laugh 28.9.2014 DNA: Money
Subramanian Swamy is an enigma, not only for his fans and detractors, but probably to his party leaders as well. Of late, the mercurial Swamy has been known for trading guns with high profile political leaders when he is not busy rabble-rousing on social media. A revered figure to his fans and despised by his detractors, Swamy remains undaunted in his political sojourn. Along the way, he has made casualties out of many a high profile person.  Saturday, September 27 was another red letter day in Swamy's life as a political activist when Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalithaa was sentenced to four years' imprisonment in the disproportionate assets case, the complaint for which was lodged by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP 18 years ago.  But this is not the first time a chief minister has had to resign because of Swamy's crusade. Way back in 1988, Swamy released a letter alleging that a former intelligence chief had asked the Department of Telecommunications (DOT) to tap the phones of many businessmen ...

MHA wants prior security clearance of telecom companies for licence 21.9.2014 DNA: Top News
The Home Ministry has insisted that obtaining prior security clearance should be made mandatory for service providers for granting them telecom licences. In a communication to the Department of Telecom, the Home Ministry has suggested that clearance from security agencies must be taken before issuing any applicant company telecom licence. This should include verification of antecedents of the directors and promoters of the firm. As of now, the Department of Telecom first gives licence to a company to provide mobile telephone services on the basis of its application and the security clearance is sought from the Home Ministry only before the launching of the service. The DoT has been told that since the process of issuing security clearance to a company has been streamlined, an applicant company can obtain it within 12 weeks and should not be worried about any delay. A verification of character and antecedents of the directors and promoters of the applicant company should be sought by the Department of ...
