Your Gateway to Blocked Content - The Pirate Browser

Countries like United Kingdom, The Netherlands, Belgium, Finland, North Korea, Denmark, Italy, Iran, Pakistan and Ireland has always been imposing ban to keep their citizens deprived from certain web content. 

One of the  renowned and controversial  P2P website "The Pirate Bay", whose owners has already been facing many court cases on copyright infringements; has now launched a new web browser "The Pirate browser".

The Browser is typically targeted to unblock the content that certain countries do not allow its citizens to access. The Pirate browser does not make you anonymous but it has customized proxy settings that let users get around those blocks.

Worth mentioning fact is that the Pirate browser is launched on the 10th birthday of "The Pirate Bay" definitely a gift to its users.

Do you know any people who can't access TPB or other torrents-sites because they are blocked? Recommend PirateBrowser to them. It's a simple one-click browser that circumvents censorship and blockades and makes the site instantly available and accessible. No bundled ad-ware, toolbars or other crap, just a Pre-configured Firefox browser.
A nice present to TPB and our users on this day, out 10yr birthday!

Customer Relationship Managment Action Plan

Action is a necessary component in insights and explorations. The action is no doubt the only important and significant stage in proper research. The action plan starts with a question, based on the observations. When we observe things and phenomenon around us, many questions arise in our minds. For example, if someone is interested in cooking, he would likely to learn more and more innovative and interesting recipes. The action plans proceeds in the same manner. It starts with a single question or the set of questions based on those observations. An action plan is then decided based on work and research related to that question. Afterwards, it ends with a judgment or the result.

The Three Stage Model:
The three stage model consists of following steps:

Exploring the products: This stage helps the client to explore the products and goods in a better way. In this stage, the clients make judgments whether the products would help them gain the profit and in such a way their concerns about gaining the profit are resolved.

Better understanding of the products: In this stage, the clients are provided with an in depth analysis and report of the products of their interest. This stage is helpful in understanding the products effectively.

Action plan and evaluation: This is the final step. In this step, the final judgments about the goods are made by the clients.

With the help of the above mentioned model, I have come to the point that the model is absolutely applicable and effective in proper orientation plans. So, I totally agree with the three stages of the model.

The Strategic Marketing Achievement Plan

Kanye West will create product fairness for the male kid marketplace flanked by the suitable ages of 14 and 18 years old. The aim for the uppermost teen years is thought more efficient, as teens working habits are dominion and also have enough stipends for expenditure.

In publicity, a creation is no matter what that can be shipped to marketplace yet influences and satisfies an urge or need. The merchandise of the group cannnot be successful until it advertises.

The goals and objectives of the company should be well defined i.e. to provide people with services that gather no complaints. The approach is relatively simple; to facilitate the CRM for small businesses in any way in this field. The company ensures that the economic health of the associated CRM for small businesses is well ensured by making sure that the services are never down.

The company has to strive to make sure that the prices remain feasible enough so as to allow maximum companies to associate themselves with it. It is constantly evolving and changing so that the current telecom structure is well suited to meet the ever emerging needs like to support telecom, IT and media all in one go. The primary objective is to make sure that the companies are on a very prominent platform and are well suited for competition.

CleverTim is one of the companies trying to push hard the boundries of the CRM and to help its customers achieve the unachieveable

Solar Energy for BTS Telecom towers–Gigantic energy conservation being overlooked

Energy shortage, dependency on fossil fuels, rising cost of energy and environmental pollution have become the biggest challenge in modern times. With limited resources and quick depletion of fossil fuel resources, the demand and supply situation is getting worse with each passing day.

Pakistan is having a huge market of mobile telephone and an ever increasing exponential growth in the mobile sector. The telecom equipment needed to support the growth of telecom has also increased; so is the use of BTS (Base Transceiver Station) towers. With thousands of BTS installed all over the country, average consumption of electricity of these BTS is moving from huge to humongous.

Currently BTS towers depends on On-Grid power which is provided by WAPDA, however with increasing loads shedding, Telecom companies installs around 10-20KVA of generators on all BTS sites to keep the BTS telecom tower alive during load shedding hours for consumer communication needs.

Currently only Telenor has more than 7000 sites operational all over the country (a Telenor employ who do not want to be named told). The data is also available on PTA site which has not been update in the last 1 or 2 years or so.
Pakistan is facing an average 6-8 hours of load shedding each day. Each of the BTS station takes an average of around 3-4kWh of total load.
A total of minimum 21 MW of electricity is being consumed by only one telecom operator per Hour. This means 378MW of electricity is being consumed each day by one Telecom operator (assuming 18hours of electricity being used from Grid).
This is just one side of the electricity consumption,  Diesel generator used as a backup for BTS towers runs an average of around 4-6 hours each day, they not only put burden on financial exchequer of the government but, also responsible for noise and air pollution in terms of carbon foot print.
If only 30% of this electricity consumption of grid (WAPDA) can be saved by installing renewable energy sources like Solar or wind, Pakistan can save around 110MW/day of electricity just from one telecom operator. Around 500MW of electricity per day can be saved just by converting 30% of the already use grid electricity of all telecom operators’ BTS tower towards Solar renewable energy system.
Pakistan, being close to equator, is exposed to enormous sunshine for maximum part of the year. Hence solar energy is available in abundance in most part of the country. A study by USAID reveals the fact that the average solar radiation in different part of the country is significant enough to generate almost 3 to 6 KW of energy per sq.m. / Hour.

Converting BTS towers to renewable energy is a win-win situation even for the Telecom companies. The payback period of solar renewable energy is mere 13-15 years when compared with On-Grid electricity (WAPDA), and after that this energy is totally free. Even a 12th grade student can calculate the revenues of what telecom companies can really benefit from solar energy sources.

Government should play a vital to encourage the telecom companies towards renewable energies by giving some subsidy in terms to taxes or some other incentive, just like other developed countries.  Once under government support, solar energy would attract foreign and local investment, resulting in large network of local industries, suppliers and vendors.  More job opportunities will be created as a result of increased investment in solar industry reducing un-employment.

Note: All calculations are research is done by the author himself, and there might be a slight difference with the original result.

Digital Measuring Tape - Amazing concept

Measuring non-flat surface would be easy with Touch Tape Measure. This measuring tape concept offers you an easy way to measure any object, This tape is thread-based with a suction cup at its end. Unlike our traditional tape measures, we can’t get accurate measurement of non-flat surfaces, 
The measuring tape has a digital OLED display, which can give you accurate digital reading. The idea is indeed very nice specially when measurement are to be taken for uneasy surfaces.
