The drop in hardware prices is something really strange but welcome. Today I picked up a 2GB pen drive for 600 rupees which is almost 30 paise per MB.
No wonder no one uses CDs these days.
I recollect that the last time I bought a pen drive was in end of 2006 and the price I paid for a 1GB drive was about 1100 rupees.
Now I got double the space for half the price. The funniest part is whether the folks selling such stuff are making any profit?
I never withdraw cash in non-ICICI ATMs. But the other day when I had to buy some medicines , the shopkeeper did not accept a debit card. So I went to the nearby SBI ATM. I withdrew 400 rupees but my ICICI bank ac has 467 rupees missing.
ICICI tells me that they charge a small fee to withdraw cash from other ATM.
67 bucks for 400 bucks is day light robbery. what do u think ?
Last night when I had to return from my office by the public transport , I was shocked to see the bus conductor pull out a thermal printer out of his bag.
He asked for my destination and gave me a printed ticket see poor quality picture below
