Kindling the Android

Amazon launches Kindle. Jeff Bezo's announcement!

The game(or is it a war???) between Kindle vs Publishing industry (print media) is going to be something that is worth watching now. The arena has been thrown open and i cannot but see the gladiator winning.

Android is interesting. My first rendezvous with Android SDK was interesting.

Is someone thinking along both the lines ;)

Hello,
Saikat from Citipals here.
Read your blog and really liked it. Its a very interesting one indeed. I see that you are interested in stuff that pertains to Indian startups and entrepreneur ventures.
Citipals is a website that caters specifically to Indian audiences and contains information on lifestyle entities such as restaurants, bars, theatres and of course movies in cities like Mumbai, Pune and Kolkata( Plan to extend the cities covered to many others in the near future).
We also enlist the new releases in Bollywood and Hollywood that are screened across the country.
Our objective behind emailing is to request you to post a story on the venture and effort, that specifically caters to the Indian audience.


We have created a new and interesting feature called MovieMatch. MovieMatch is a place where you can rate popular Bollywood and Hollywood movies. This feature enables you to compare your taste with your friends and at the same time, its also a great platform to make your opinion known to people.
We have created a facebook app for MovieMatch as well where facebook users can play MovieMatch.

ou can read our latest press release on a facebook app by us at http://blog.citipals.com/2007/11/moviematch-new-facebook-app-for-indians.html
We also tried something sarcastically funny in the recent past and you can read a bit about it at http://blog.citipals.com/2007/11/social-networks-mania_07.html ( this is a small jscript animation slideshow which shows what will happen if social networks become "really open")
Further, you can read out press release on MovieMatch- a small game which lets you and your friends share ratings and opinion on a set of hit bollywood and hollywood movies; both blockbusters and new releases at http://blog.citipals.com/2007/11/moviematch-compare-your-tastes-in.html
Press release for MovieMatch is posted at http://blog.citipals.com/2007/11/answer-to-users-quest-for-trusted.html

I hope that you will like the matter that we have gathered at citipals.
Looking forward to your reply.
