Microsoft® Fingerprint Reader – Say Goodbye to Password Hassles

Posted by 8 February, 2009 (1) Comment

Microsoft Fingerprint ReaderIf you consider yourself among one of those who use many different passwords and forget, even for email checking, logging on to any community site or playing game, you have to sign in again and again, then its a perfect gadget for you.

Now with the help of Microsoft® Fingerprint Reader, there won’t be the need of entering the username and password again and again rather you will be signed in just by putting your finger on the device. It is very user friendly.

Though it is very helpful but Microsoft suggests not to use it for sensitive data like financial information etc. They still recommend using strong passwords for these.

Estimated price: Rs. 8,000 (PKR) or 110 USD

Can be purchased from: Amazon (Recommended)

Zong 65 | 65 Paisas per 30 Seconds | Price War Continues

Posted by 7 February, 2009 (2) Comment


Zong now offers a new package Zong 65 allowing it’s subscribers to call at 65 paisas per 30 seconds on any network in Pakistan which broke all time lowest price record so far. This continues the price war among the GSM Service Providers in Pakistan. Mobilink recently offered a package of 68 paisas per 30 seconds on any network in Pakistan.

Package Details:

Voice: All networks in Pakistan 65 paisa/30 secs
SMS: All networks in Pakistan Rs. 1/SMS
MMS: All networks in Pakistan Rs. 3/MMS
GPRS Rs. 15/MB
Unlimited GPRS Rs. 400/month
Unlimited SMS Rs. 3/day
Friends and Family Not Applicable
Special offers (e.g. Happy Hour, 8 Aanay, LNO, BTO, Super Free, Unlimited Free) Not Applicable

* GST of 21% is applicable on all rates.

Lets see how long this goes. In my honest opinoin, Zong should try to improve it’s network coverage and customer services rather then reducing the prices. A lot of my friends are using Zong and the signals are very weak.
