On the electronics front, in India, we get fairly outdated products and on those we are over charged 2-3 times more than in the US. So I would wait for around a year or so when HDMI dust settles down a bit. 5 years down the line, everything would get outdated, except, I guess the speakers. regards
Sorry to hear that. I heard the economy in India was very strong, I guess only a few are enjoying it! Same everywhere.

It is the same everywhere. Poor get poorer. And electronics is much more expensive than in the US.

Economy is strong - more people are buying more things. but it is still very low. The positive side is that there is a huge scope of growth in future and the only way forward is growth.

anm,

Did you ever consider moving to the USA? You can always get a job in tech support for microsoft's customers in India.



LOL, just some morning humor!

Well, Mr Bill won't hire me in the US for that when he can hire cheaper resources back in India :-)

Well I did consider moving to the US, but there are things that firmly bind me to India. I have worked with few US guys and really enjoyed the experience. Maybe some day I will visit the US just for shopping :-)
