How to Purchase Yu Yureka in India from Amazon.in

yu smartphone logoYu announced the Yureka which will be sold for ₹8999 in India. However, there is a lot of confusion revolving around how will the users be able to purchase it from Amazon website. So here I’m compiling the presently available information together which will help in understanding the buying process better.

Process to Purchase the Yureka Smartphone

Yu is basically following the same procedure as Xiaomi does for selling its devices. If you’re familiar with Xiaomi’s selling process (via Flipkart), you should already be aware how these flash sales work.

1. Subscribing on Amazon.in

The first thing to do is to register for the sale on Amazon website. It is not actually registering, but subscribing to the Yureka newsletter. Only those who have subscribed will be eligible to take part in the sale. If you’ve subscribed before, but weren’t able to purchase a Yureka, you need to subscribe again to take part in the next sale.

Subscribe on Amazon

To register, open the link above and click on subscribe for XYZ sale. Thereafter click on subscribe and finally login to your Amazon account (or create a new account if not already logged in). That’s for the registration part. You may or may not receive a confirmation email in the coming days notifying that you’re eligible to take part in the forthcoming sale of Yureka. Don’t worry if you don’t receive an email.

2. Make the Purchase on Amazon

On the sale date (every Thursday), be sure to open Amazon.in and login to your account at least 10 minutes before 2:00 PM.

At exactly 2:00:00 PM, you will be needed to click on  Add to Cart button that appears on the page linked below and then Pay within 15 minutes. A countdown timer will be added to the page as sale approaches and when the timer reaches 0, the Add to Cart button will appear. You need to hit the button the very moment it appears. The more delay, the lesser will be your chances of getting the phone.

Purchase Yu Yureka

2.1 Script to Automatically Add Yureka to your Amazon Cart

So you’re trying single a long time, but still couldn’t manage to add the Yureka to your cart? There’s an easy solution i.e. an automated script that runs within your web browser and automatically clicks on Add to Cart when it appears. The advantage is that it is much faster than a human hand and hence improves your chances of getting the phone by over 200%. Here’s how to use the script (PC/Laptop only):

  1. Open your web browser (Firefox or Chrome preferred) and open Amazon.in/YU about 10 minutes before the sale and login to your Amazon account.
  2. When the sale approaches closer (1:55PM), make sure you’re on THIS page. Then press F12 key on your keyboard to open the developer console.
  3. Click on the Console tab.
  4. Copy the script below
    setInterval(function(){ jQuery('.btn').trigger('click'); console.log('Trying to add Yureka to your cart. TechMesto.com'); },10);
  5. Paste it inside the console tab and hit enter.
  6. Wait for the phone to be automatically added to your cart when sale starts.

Important Notes:

  1. DO NOT press on Add to Cart if the price shows to be ₹12499. That can happen if you open the link too early or too late. If you’re too early, keep refreshing the page until the superdeal starts and the price is reduced down to 8999.
  2. Owing to limited stocks and large number of buyers, not all the persons who have subscribed will be able to purchase the phone. So, be sure to have a fast data connection and keep Amazon.in opened a few minutes before the sale kicks off at 2:00 PM sharp.
  3. Complete the payment within 15 minutes of getting the phone in your cart or you will lose it.
  4. DO NOT use #AmazonCart, Wishlist or any other methods to add the phone to your cart. You will not be able to checkout successfully. Only orders placed from the page linked above will be accepted.

Unlike the flash sale on Flipkart, adding the phone to your cart won’t book a phone for you for long hours, so please proceed to the payment and checkout immediately if you want to purchase the phone. Once your order is placed (locked), any payment issues can be sorted out with 24 hours of placing the order. If you take more than 15 minutes to complete the payment, the phone will be offered to other users who will be waiting in the waiting list. More details about the Wait List can be found in the email that you received from Amazon.

The Yureka sale will be held every Thursday at 2PM. If you miss one, try your best in the upcoming sale.

Frequently Asked Questions

Listed below are some of the questions that are frequently asked by the people. I’ve answered them to the best of my knowledge.

It it a Micromax phone?

No. It is imported and sold by Yu Televentures which is a wholly owned subsidiary of Micromax. While Micromax owns Yu Televentures, it still operates as a separate company.

Will COD be Available as a Payment Option?

Yes. Cash on Delivery will be available.

Yu social teams were earlier saying that it won’t be available, but it is indeed available accoring to the latest status coming from their facebook page.

YUREKA! Cash on delivery will be available for YU as per Amazon’s policy.

What all do we get in the Box?

The box contains:

  1. The phone
  2. 2500 mAh battery
  3. USB data cable
  4. Charger
  5. Standard earphones
  6. Standard Screenguard
  7. Free Yu Leather Cover (Only for 1st Sale)
Not using the same account. However if you’ve registered using multiple amazon accounts, each account will be eligible to purchase one Yureka smartphone.

What is the SAR value of the phone?

Yu has not declared the SAR value of the phone, but as it is a rebranded Coolpad F2, the SAR value should necessarily be the same.
So, the SAR value of Yureka is 0.4 W/kg and it is well in limits with the 1.6 W/kg highest limit set by the Indian authorities.

Is it better than Redmi Note?

On paper, yes it is! However, if you are still concerned, you should skip the first sale and wait for some detailed reviews to pop up.
You can find our comparison of Yureka with Redmi Note 4G here

When will be the next round of registrations?

Amazon communicated that the registrations for next sale will begin from 15th of January.

  • Hello Amazon…Is there any EMI options for Yu Yureka .If yes then please share with us.What is the min. & max. EMI options available for the YU YUREKA.

  • Hey, i am waiting for the flash sale of Canvas spark on snap deal dated 13th may, 2015. Is the same script is applicable over their?

  • Hello everyone!!!!. I got my yureka on 28th April & since from then I am using it. The phone is good . but there are 2 drawbacks. The most the important is the battery. The battery performance is very very poor. It takes a long time to get fully charged. It doesn’t gets fully charged even if kept for charging the whole night. The the battery reduces very rapidly. It needs the charging almost 3-4 times a day. The the second one is the heating problem. It gets heated during its each & every use. Though you open an app , game or simply make a call. It gets heated a lot.only after just opening an app the battery gets reduced 3 %. One more thing is its camera clarity though its mentioned as 13 mp. But in actual I am not getting that much clarity in the pics. Might be due to its screen resolution or pixels. Else every thing is good in this phone. Also not getting the leather case free with it…..

  • SIR ABHI ABHI MEINE ORDER DONE KI HAI. MEIN AMAZON KA PEHLA OUSTNER HU MUZE DILEIVERY KB MILEGI?

  • matlab sir amazon par ye product k liye COD payment option hoga kya?

    kuki im confused q ki yaha pr likha tha ki phone avialable hone par 15 me payment krna hoga, isliye kya aap plz muze ye bata do ki us 15 mint me payment krne par hi product deliver hoga ki delivery k wqt payment kr skte hai hum? meine COD option kiya toh muze product milega kya? im very confused sir. plz reply fast.

    • Credit card option is there, but not for all PIN codes. You’ll be shown COD as a Payment Option if your PIN Code is eligible for that.
      Phone available hone k 15 minute me checkout karna hai. yaani order place hona chahoye. Chahe COD use karo, chahe Card se payment karo, but 15 minute \me finish karo. Agar tumhe COD option show hota hai and tum order place kar dete ho to phone zaroor milega 🙂

  • Yaar phone toh uthaya karo, paise bhi kaat lete ho aur phone bhi nahi uthate….pehle hi 9000rs. barbaad kar diye, upar se assistance ke naam par loot macha rakhi hai, yaar itna kama ke kahan le jaoge……….. logo ko bewakuf banana chhod do!!!!

    • Sahi baat hai bhai. Agree 100% with you. And then they say k Indian company k products khareedo -_-

      • Hii narender
        cyanogen ke saath kitkat ka matlab bata do
        and qualcom 1.5 ghz octacore hai ya quadcore??
        and aap to use kiye ho ye phone??

        processing speed kaisa hai??
        mediatek se aacha hai to qualcom???
        apk files chalega to kisi aur se lekar???
        i mean google play store se???

        • Hello Dhiraj

          Cyanogen is a customized ROM. It just includes some variations, improvements and additional functionality over the stock Android.
          It is Quad-Core
          Processing is good, but hurts the battery backup.
          Qualcomm is certainly better than MediaTek at least in terms of development.
          APK will work
          Play Store will work

  • Plz tell me whether I’ll face any problems according to Price..
    Actually the price given in yuplaygod.com is 8999 but on Amazon its 12900. Why ?????
    Waiting 4 ur reply!!!!

    • Amazon lists the actual price at other times. Only when the sale is ongoing, the price is reduced down to Rs. 8999 as part of their superdeal. The final price that you’ll pay is Rs. 8999 only. Don’t worry.

  • Plz tell me whether it has any notification lights running on the top of thr phone. If it does, tell me whether it is multicoloured……

    and at last the price reached to 12500 rs.can u tell me how to solve the quantity issue.and will this script works on the sale on 26th march

    • Did you see a countdown at least? If not, you probably weren’t registered for the sale.
      Otherwise, maybe your connection was slow and the Add to Cart widget failed to load.

  • do we have to refresh the page constantly after pasting the program in the console ??

    nd does this program has time limit of 5 mins ??

  • hi bro,
    Thanks for such a useful post. I’ve to ask that will it not be available to unregistered costumers? how should i register, I’m trying since morning, and should i go with amazon app or by my phone’s browser(no pc). any trick for mobile users??

  • i clicked within a second… add to cart…. but it took long time to process . and when it processed , it showd …. waitlist is 100% full…wth…………….my speed was 9.8 mbps b4 the sale!!!!!!
    then y did this happen

  • Awesome dude..thanks a lot ……techmesto for this script.

    I tried it three time manually and could not got this phone in last month, but since last two weeks I got this mobile in very first go using this script. As soon as counter goes beyond 0, a mobile got added in cart.

    • That’s awesome, but please play fair and add to cart only if you need it. No black marketing 😛

      • No dude, i am purchasing this phone for relatives, who are in remote area and could not proceed with these online stuff……… 🙂 Thanks again…..it works today as well.. Keep rocking.

  • Hey bro!
    I’ve tried so many times since the phone’s available but i couldn’t get it. Though i haven’t used your scripts but every time i’ve clicked the ‘add to cart’ button the price always hike to 12999 bucks. I am worried what should i do? Should i go with the hiked price or should i do something else. I really wanna buy it on 12th march sale. Please help me.

    • The price is initially shown as 8,999 on the deal page, on the next page you’ll see it rising up to 12499 -12999 (whatever) and then on the final order page (where you pay), it reduces down to 8999 again. But yes, if you’re too late to order the phone, the price will go back to 12999 when the deal sells out.
      If on the final page you still see 12999 as the price, you should better try in the subsequent sales.

    • It should work, but do run this script in a separate browser and try manually clicking in the other. One or the other will work out 🙂

  • I tried to purchase the phone during the previous two weeks but always wait listed. This time I used the script and got it on my first attempt. Thank you very much.

  • thank you so muchh !! your scripiting works properly.. and i have got a yureka for me.. thanks again.. !!

  • hi i have booked for yu yureka but failed to make payment
    late a mail have came 2 my regestered mail id to revise order within 1 day
    can i revise or leave that mail and book again in next sale?
    please tell me quikly….

    • You can revise the payemnt method within 24 hours and your order will be processed. or yep you can always disregard it and retry again in the next sale.

  • thanks a lot brother for your help i booked my phone, Could u teach me how to make these kind of scripts? or the languages used for making these please reply me i am awaiting your reply

  • What about the return policy ?? Is COD availoable?
    Heard there is abnormal heating while playing high end games and on calls ? IS that true…. Real time yureka users, Guys plz help…

    • Return policy is similar to amazon’s standard return policy, hence you can check directly.
      As about heating, the phone does heat up a bit, but that wasn’t ever abnormal in my case. I’ve however shut down a few cores and reduced the clock speed of others to get a better battery backup. I’ve not tried playing very high-end games, so I cannot say much about that.

    • Hi dude,
      How was the overall performance? Can we go for it? everyone are posting reviews based on other sites, we expect user review. how about service centers??

      • For service details – You must read this post and the comments too 😛
        The phone is actually good. Battery and to some extent, the loudspeaker are the only sad points about this.

  • Yureka mobile is getting too warm while talking for 5 mins also.. any solution for this guys???…..battery is also weak …need to recharge often in a day…also it charges very slowly takes too long to get full recharge…..infact my canvas nitro is quite good in that…. charger is same which micromax provided with mobile…..huh

  • When i pasted the code in console tab after 1-2 mins it showed 503 error in console tab.Does refreshing the page works in that case.

  • I have used the code on feb 12th sale but it didn’t add micromax yureka mobile to my cart i got 503 error what does it mean and what should i do so that i don’t get the same error next time.

    • Amazon page showed the error? 503 is generally posted when the server is overloaded and hence fails to fulfil the request. A page refresh should’ve worked.

  • My Yureka is not supporting google play. When i intend to download any app or update its showing that ‘ Unfortunatley Google play has stopped’ for all the time. How to rectify this. Please help me with this… thanks in advance

  • Company said about camera 13 mp & 5 mp & they also said that ram will 2gb but I got yureka everything which is told by company is falls. So not this is not good.

  • Hey bro i didnt got confrmtion message on subscribing to yu yureka newsletter?wether it effects anything during buying the phone?but it is register on my amazon.in account

  • I HAVE REGISTERD IN FIRST ANNOUSEMENT DATE & FORGOTEN THE REGISTERD NO. CAN I PARTICIPATE ON 05\FEB\15 .PL CONFIRM & INFOMRME ME THE REGISERTERDD NOSOON.

    • You were supposed to register again for the sale on 5th Feb. So, unfortunately you aren’t eligible to purchase the phone this time.

  • I am living in remote area of A & N Islands from here it is not possible for me to purchase/compete for the yureka phone due to slow internet connection. I tried twice but failed to do so, therefore I am looking for some other phone which will be easily available to me from here.

  • thanks narender singh ji…….

    one more question i have in mind…. google crome or mozila firefox… which is better for fast yureka deal.. or there is no issues abt any browser???

    • There shouldn’t be anything about browsers, but I feel the Proxy mode in opera can help. On general terms, all browsers should be equal.

    • No. Wait list is only valid for that particular sale. If a person fails to place the order in 15 minutes, the phone is offered to somebody in the wait list. In the next sale, you’ll need to try again.

    • Copies fine here, broh. Try uninstalling the phone’s drivers from Dev Manager and then re-installing again.

      • dude i did added it to cart it said checking deal status and stuck after 3 mins i clicked on mobile s photo and then on right side it was written waitlist is also full 🙁 really this is sick what could be reason slow internet ? i did clicked on right time so whats gone wrong ?

        • Certainly the slow connection vs the high demand. Even I failed to book one, but that’s acceptable as my connection has high ping. Good luck getting one in the next sale, buddy.

      • thanks to you. i’m getting lumia 830 instead. not going with this crap anymore. battery sucks and it doesn’t even has a compass. good for you, you made it within the first sale. back to #WP . Thank you once again. things did change. so did my mind. haha. i just ordered a lumia 830. cant wait to break open the box. *waiting fingers crossed*

        • Lumia 830 is a nice phone and with Windows 10 coming, it will be even nicer. However the OS will still not be able to be as good as Android.
          Yureka also ain’t bad (for the price), but this flash sale shit is! It’s more about marketing over the willingness to sell. Battery life is very sad and it still tends to heat up in these freezing temperatures. All this when I haven’t even installed a heavy game, playing is another story.

          I hope your windows experience will be favorable. Good luck 🙂 I’m sorry though for the fact that my page had incorrect info 😐

          • no problem. now that i know it heats up. it would definitely get to scorching temperatures with 4g + Clash of Clans (‘coz i already experienced that on moto g2) and i don’t have to worry about android at all. not for a million years! my nexus is a worthy charm. i use it for everything but call & texts. i was just looking for a good one to show off + use it for calls & texts. found 830. Now that should keep me away from buying phones for a long time. haha 😀 n6 + L830 = alien phone combo xD

            • The keyboard on WP is the best IMO. For texting, you’re gonna love it, but the quality of messenger apps ain’t the best there, so you might hate them 🙂
              I was only playing COC on the Yureka over WiFi and that was when it started to heat up. So heavy games or 4G will be a killer. For the battery as well.

  • which payment option is good for quick payment facility, COD or Debit Pay

    can you please suggest the good thing for me…

  • where to register for the sale on 22nd jan,as i open the the yureka page on amazon there is no option showing for registering ???? and people are saying that u can register till today before 2 p.m.

    i m from panchkula(haryana)

    plz. help ASAP !!

    thankx

    • The registrations were closed yesterday and I’m sorry for the late reply. The subscription link was provided in this post, just if you’d have checked. Maybe try in the next sale now?

    • That’s known, but I don’t see why it would affect us or the market. It’s a unique device for us at least 😛

      • yea. but what i say is at least they didn’t really have to copy. they could have moved the rear camera to the centre. and fixed a god damn compass in there (somewhere). and should have been supported with a solid 3000+ mAh battery. at least ‘coz its screen is 5.5″. considering the screen size, its too low for the adjustment. i know that managing the processor manually is a good thing which plays a HUGE role in battery usage. but still the screen just drains it all no matter how low the processor is maintained. and its pretty much good with the mi portable carrier. but still…. just sayin’ it’d be the best with just 1.) a compass and 2.) better battery (at least 3000mAh). my nexus really pays me back everyday for what i’ve paid! gives me a minimum of 24h of battery usage with 3g kept on the whole day and even with heavy usage sometimes. for good god sake.. n6 doesn’t seem to know the meaning of heating. i hope it never will. lol. so temme about yureka’s heavy usage. does it heat up? just play an online multiplayer game with 3g / 4g and know the battery. i hope it doesn’t. *fingers crossed*

  • Yesterday I was reading customer reviews. In most of the reviews people are talking about speakers that they are not so good and creating problems. Do you also facing such kind of problem?

    • Yep. The loud speaker ain’t loud enough and the output audio is also kinda blurry. Won’t make a music enthusiast happy for sure. The earpiece seems fine though.

  • I went to Yu Forums and searched about the sales went on Amazon on 13 Jan . They are telling that the 1st sale was at a discount price of Rs 8999 but in the 2nd sale the price was Rs12499. Is Amazon’s mistake or is it the Current Price!!!!
    Will the next sale be on the price of Rs 8999 or not?!?!

  • subscibed today and got mail of subscription to the newsletter…when will i be able to register for purchase..???

  • In first sell, the page showed me that “this item is not available at this pin code”
    My pin code is 482004.
    Any help???

  • Hi!
    Redhatz Arun again!!!
    I registered the Yu Yureka @ Amazon.in
    Now, How to check that my registration is granted .I’ve got an e-mail from it that I am registered but how to check that I can buy Yureka on Amazon at 22nd of this month because I heard a rumour about the previous sale at out of 3 lakh people only 10,000 users got it !
    Plz reply!!!

    • Yep. Because there were only 10,000 units to be sold. You will be needed to act fast because the number of registrations will even be greater. The fastest people will be able to grab one on 22nd 🙂

  • Tell me plz whether its display is Corning Gorilla Glass 3 and anything else!!!!
    And thankz 4 the previous reply!!:)

    • Yep it is Gorilla Glass 3. But don’t ever feel that it is unbreakable, its just scratch resistant and stronger than the standard glass.

        • That’s a 50-50 thing. Depending on the angle and the force, any glass will break. Be it standard or Gorilla Glass 3. My Lumia’s screen shattered when it felled from like 1 meter and after that it has felled from the first floor and it still works. So its all about the angle and part that touches the ground.

  • Plz tell me the box contents. I saw many YouTube videos on this phone, but they did not show the retail package as it was not available then. But u got the retail package, plz reply!!!!! :):)

  • What is the SAR value of the phone? – update from the box image posted is:

    0.27 W/kg @1g for Head
    0.56 W/kg @1g for Body

  • oh damn! i unsubscribed thinking i will have to redo it officially. can you provide the link for subscribing it once again? i wanna do it again. i just don’t care how. i want it now. lol. please give the link back to subscribe it manually.

  • You told that registration fo the sale on 22nd will begin on 15th. I was in front of the computer, opened the link that you provided. But no registration button was there

  • When the registration again opens..?
    Called the Yu customer care they told me that it will open today but still there is no update
    Any idea?

    • As I’ve already mentioned in the post, the current status is that they will be opened on 15th. But there are also some rumors that only those who previously registered will be allowed to purchase. I’m not sure, so please wait for an official update.

  • Is yureka being delivered only in metro cities n other major cities?? I jst wanna knw whether it is available at dhanbad-jharkhand

    • definitely. ‘coz im not buying this phone anymore. just planning on picking up the project ara for good. that should be better choice. its coming up on Feb6. not much of a time difference. but a huge difference in product. thats “Google” after all. and i’ve always been a Google customer. buying this would only break the streak. but “ara’s” arrival is gonna ruin yureka’s sale for sure. “YU vs Google” ..? Absolutely Google. 😀

      • As nice as the Project Ara is, we still need to wait and see whether the Google’s name is enough for the companies to manufacture modules/blocks for the devices. As in the desktop world, you have freedom, still there are only a handful companies really making that key hardware.
        Depending on when and what Google has to showcase with the initial release, I might skip the first version entirely because it is gonna be a low end product. Google would be aiming to put it in the hands of a million users so that OEMs start showing interest in manufacturing modules for the same. If it sells, success is there. Else it would die as another wonderful project which wasn’t accepted by the market.

      • i’m getting YU anyways on the next sale. all i need is to look more about “ara”. but as you consider, there is no low-end or high-end phone in the module industry. its like “pay more to get more”. if you’d want a better RAM block, just toss some extra money and similarly theres blocks for everything. Camera block, RAM block. Storage block. Processor Core block, Battery block and blah blah blah. See how the method works?
        So Google is pretty much planning to let go of the “low-end : high-end” talk and start a new era from their new ara. but “ara” turns out to be the lead mechanical designer of the product. lol 😀 i’m probably gonna end up with YU & nexus6 in my pockets while i have ARA in the hands. lmao. that’d be cool though. haha

        • I know that, but because Google is looking to bring it to the masses, I’m sure that initially only a few modules will be available and they’d all be targeted at entry level price points. Something to just keep the phone running. Manufacturing needs bulk quantities and no manufacturer would want to spend big on a product which may or mayn’t sell.
          The Ara thing still is a lot confusing to me and I hope Google will clear my doubts sooner than the device start landing. It’s surely attractive on paper and demonstrations. What I’m waiting for is practicability. If it is practical, I’d wanna be one of the first ones to pick it up and carry it along with a Lumia and Yureka 😛

          • ah! lumia. i used it once apon a time in a galaxy far far away. jk :p i used it though. switched to android within a month and sold my lumia 820 out. i really didn’t like the approach of lumia in the beginning. but now i’d definitely want one. already got n6. 2 more on the list. “ara” and YU. so, no plans for a windows phone for ages now. lol. which one do you own?

            • It’s a 730, had a 525 in the past, I really like my Lumias. Got the 730 coz its gonna be the last one with a NOKIA tag and the next aim is the Nokia N1 tablet. Have a feeling for that brand and I’ll continue as long it exists and produces something valuable. Nokia, HTC and Moto are…. engineers of design. Sadly what finally sells are the ugly Samsungs 🙁
              Will only wait for W10 for Phones. Windows will then either be killed or will gain some serious market share 😛 One thing that Android needs to learn from WP though are the updates. From entry level to high end, all got the updates constantly.

              • that sums up the classiness of a windows phone. thats the only black spot for and android phone. and its totally true about the ugly samdung phones. i’m like.. “anything, but samdung!” 😀 moto – “was” not “is” anymore. they just gave up their contract to lenovo from china after the nexus6 project. so any upcoming moto now will be actually made up by the lenovo themselves. too bad they ended up so soon. but thank god i got my nexus6 which was the final flagship device of motorola.

                • It’s not really about who is owning Motorola. The key employees will be retained (or they aren’t?) and I’m sure Lenovo will let them move the company with enough of differentiation from Lenovo’s own smartphones. Lenovo’s PC designs aren’t really bad. So Moto can do better with the mountain of cash lying with Lenovo.
                  It’s all about being skilled. Samsung tried all the way till metal, but the end products were still so ugly. Maybe people buy it because they’ll cover their phones with covers as ugly as their phone on the very next day.
                  There are certainly good things in Windows Phone, but no differntaition and feature addition when it goes to high end. That’s where it is killed. Cortana is also a great thing about WP. Maybe WP will be more successful if the only devices running it are Lumias and MS gives up it’s multi-OEM strategy. OEMs aren’t being able to differentiate their products with WP.

                  • talking about Cortana.. It’s better than Siri from the iOS. At least thats what i felt and i’ve also heard people saying..

                    • It’s better than them all. Google Now or Siri. Cortana is really a wonderful innovation 🙂 It is more humanly than Google Now which sounds like a true bot.

  • nice time blogging here mate. i’m from bangalore. i haven’t really blogged much these days. it had been a long time having a tech-talk like this. i’d like to keep up with more of such updates about current events and gadgets coming up. see what we can do? mail me or contact me. what do you say about it?

    • I’m not sure 😛 This is merely a hobby work here. There are times when I’m not posting for weeks. So maybe you should look at a blog which is constant. I’ve also tried to stay low on the news and new releases front. Once you jump there, you gotta post every damn day, plus enough competition that you better avoid 🙂 However, if you have some other ideas, always welcomed.
