'Technologies for 2012 made for a great read'
February 16, 2012When will we get to tap?
The focus on new gadget and technologies for 2012 made for a great read. I just hope we will get to see most of these gadgets in India without much delay. Moreover, your report 'Just a tap away' (February, 2012) gave good insight into the emerging technology of near-field communication (NFC). But, sadly, while most of the developed economies have started using the technology for financial transactions, it seems we will be tapping our phones only to transfer media content. Can't wait for the day when we will be able to pay auto fares by tapping our cell on the fare meter. - P S SANDHU, MOHALI
Time for a Lucky Break
Now this is ridiculous-I am a regular reader of G&G and have been trying to bag something in every contest. With all your terms and conditions fulfilled, I have been crosschecking my answer in every issue and they are always correct. But I remain empty handed all the time. I suggest you improve your lottery system. - PAWAN KUMAR, ON EMAIL
Dear Pawan, we get a lot of correct answers to our contests and we have no choice but to conduct a random lottery pick of the winners. Unfortunately, the gods haven't smiled on you-yet. Keep on sending in your answers. One day you will hit the jackpot.
