India Fears Terrorism May Attract Its Muslims

This is a very interesting article in today’s New York Times. It offers a glimpse into how situations are allowing radicalism to spread to traditionally non-radical Muslims. Though the situation in India is quite different, could the sentiments of newly minted radicals in India be that much different than those in the UK, Western Europe, or the US?

VoiceMail for your Blog?

Via Webyantra, I came across NowPos. What NowPos does is provide an ability to create, send, and receive voicemail from a browser. No additional hardware ( other than a Mic and Speakers ) or software is required. I just added a “Talk to me” button on the left. Feel free to click it and leave me a message.

It’s some pretty cool, patent pending, technology that appears to be built on top of Flash. I’ve heard of similar concept companies in the US but I can’t, for the life of me, remember any of their names or URLs. I guess that means NowPos has a chance of keeping me as a user.

To read a much more detailed review of NowPos, take a look at Amit’s review on Webyantra.
