Ever since the RIA world was taken over with the advent of tools like Adobe Flex and Adobe AIR, one of the major hassles for developers/businesses in adopting these flash based technologies has been SEO - Search Engine Optimization.
As many of the search engines cannot really index the contents of a flash widget/resource it left the technology found wanting.. Well, not any more.
Gooogle had announced that it can in fact index flash content .
You can read about this on an interview with Michael Marshall here.

The key here is the tool developed by adobe called swf2html
As true fans/users of Adobe's flash based development , I would like to welcome this effort from adobe to help folks like us develop with flex fearlessly.

So go ahead, flex your muscles and flash em all!!

Global Messaging System


A few weeks earlier, me and my good friend ashraff(affectionately called "dead body") thought of changing the way people use SMS.
Why is it that you have to pay 6rs per international sms, when you have a GPRS enabled phone??
Is there a way to make it cheaper?? Well we thought about it and created solmething which will help you communicate for almose free (depending on your service provider.) internationally.

So we came up with a small prototype of what we call GMS (global messaging system) which you can see here(Look it up on your mobile browser and not the PC!!)

Out of out testing results , we had found that one will be able to send arounf 1000 messages at almost 3 INR.

The only pre-requisite being that the receiver will need to have a GPRS enabled fone and that he has to have an account with us , and that he should see his messages through his/her mobile browser..

We have some pretty interesting services lined up with this.. More on my next post.
