Watch NASA's Perseverance Rover Land on Mars!



Watch an epic journey unfold on Thursday, Feb. 18 as our Perseverance rover lands on Mars. To reach the surface of the Red Planet, the rover has to survive the harrowing final phase known as Entry, Descent, and Landing.


Only then can the rover - the biggest, heaviest, cleanest, and most sophisticated six-wheeled robot ever launched into space - search Jezero Crater for signs of ancient life and collect samples that will eventually be returned to Earth.


Tune in to a live video feed of key landing activities and commentary from Mission Control at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

Internet body approves new web suffixes

The internet is set for one of its most significant changes in years, after the global governing body for domain names approved a major expansion.

The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) on Monday approved the expansion of domain names beyond ".com" to ".anything".

Top-level domains, which include .com, .net and .org, will be expanded to include new brand, generic and geographic domain name extensions - such as .shop, .sydney, .apple, .bhp or .nab, for example.

Independence Day




The feeling of nationalism had started growing in the minds of Indians as early as the middle of the nineteenth century but it grew more with the formation of the Indian national Congress in 1885. Though the Congress started on a moderate platform but with the passage of time and apathetic attitude of the British government, the national movement began to shape well. Even the very moderate demands set by the Congress were not met by the British government. This attitude of the British government made people and freedom fighters more restless and attacks against the British Raj increased.

By the first decade of the 20th century the Indian National Congress grew more skeptic of the British government. This was mainly due to increase of extremist tendencies among many Congress members. These extremists criticized the moderate policies of the early Congress members. This resulted into more attacks on the British power. The British government on its part continued its "damn care" attitude. To divide the National movement, the British even played the divide and rule card, which led to the rise of Muslim League. With Muslim league on their side the British always tried to stall all the demands of the Indian National Congress. Though the Congress and the League came together in 1916 AD but the truce was short lived. By the 1920s the mood of the national movement had become more aggressive. With Mahatma Gandhi at the helm of affairs the Congress launched many movements against the British rule.

The first of a series of national movements was the Non-cooperation movement (1920-1922AD). It was followed by the civil disobedience movement, after a lull. Though the Congress was in the forefront of the freedom struggle but there were many other organizations and individuals who also played important role. The struggle for independence continued in the 1930s but the real momentum came with the Second World War. The Indian National Congress began to cooperate with the British government in their war efforts. The Congress thought that after the war the British might leave India, but the real intentions of the British became obvious very soon. The Congress, under the leadership of Gandhi began to prepare for the "Quit India Movement" in 1942. With the pace of developments all over the world (after the Second World War), the British came to realize that it was not possible to rule India any more and they decided to quit.

On the other hand the Muslim League had vowed for a separate nation, Pakistan. The league was concerned that a united independent India would be dominated by Hindus. In the winter of 1945-46 Mohammed Ali Jinnah's Muslim League members won all thirty seats reserved for Muslims in the Central Legislative Assembly and most of the reserved provincial seats as well. In an effort to resolve deadlock between the Congress and the Muslim League and in order to transfer power "to a single Indian administration", a three-man Cabinet Mission formed in 1946 which drafted plans for a "three-tier federation for India."

According to the plan, the region would be divided into three groups of provinces, with Group A including the Hindu-populated provinces that would eventually comprise the majority of the independent India. Groups B and C were comprised of largely Muslim-populated provinces. Each group would be governed separately with a great degree of autonomy except for the handling of "foreign affairs, communications, defense, and only those finances required for such nationwide matters."

The plan, however, did not take into account the fate of a large Sikh population living in Punjab, part of the B-group of provinces. Although they did not make up more than two per cent of the Indian population, the Sikhs had been moving for a separate Punjab of their own, and by 1946 they were demanding a free Sikh nation-state. As leader of the Muslim League, Jinnah accepted the Cabinet Mission's proposal. However, when Nehru announced at his first press conference as the reelected president of Congress that "no constituent assembly could be bound by any prearranged constitutional formula," Jinnah retraced his steps and the Muslim League's Working Committee withdrew its consent and called upon the Muslims to launch direct action in mid-August 1946. This was followed by a frenzy of rioting between Hindus and Muslims.

In the March of 1947 Lord Mountbatten came to India and recommended a partition of Punjab and Bengal in the face of civil war. Gandhi was very opposed to the idea of partition and urged Mountbatten to offer Jinnah leadership of a united India instead of the creation of a separate Muslim state. But this arrangement was not acceptable to many nationalist leaders, including Nehru. In July Britain's Parliament passed the Indian Independence Act. According to it August 14 and 15 were set for partition of India. Thus came into existence two independent entities- Indian and Pakistan.

Happy Independence Day

Google to take security page from Mozilla's Firefox


Bangalore: Recently, Google said that it will take a page from Mozilla's security playbook and block outdated plug-ins from launching in its Chrome browser, part of a new effort to keep users safer.

Chromium is the name of the open-source development project that feeds into the Chrome browser. Google did not spell out when the blocking of outdated plug-ins would be added to Chrome, saying only that it would happen in the medium-term. Nor did the Google engineers specify which plug-ins would be blocked. Chrome will assist users in updating old plug-ins, they said.
Chrome will also display a warning when a site calls on an infrequently-used plug-in, said Chris Evans, Julien Tinnes and Michal Zalewski of Google's security team. "Some plug-ins are widely installed but typically not required for today's Internet experience. For most users, any attempt to instantiate such a plug-in is suspicious and Google Chrome will warn on this condition."

Google did not reply to requests for clarification and more information on the timeline of the impending changes to Chrome. By making this move with Chrome, Google is following in the footsteps of Mozilla, which has already equipped its Firefox browser with the ability to block outdated plug-ins.

Both Mozilla and Google have said the new features represent a response to the rapid increase in the number of attacks against vulnerable plug-ins, especially Adobe's Flash Player and estimates, attacks against browser plug-ins, particularly Adobe's popular Reader PDF viewer, are quickly climbing. In the first quarter of 2010, PDF exploits accounted for 28 percent of all malware-bearing attack code, antivirus vendor McAfee said in April.

In other security arenas, Chrome is already ahead of Firefox. For example, Google's browser now automatically updates Adobe's Flash Player behind the scenes. And two weeks ago, Google added an integrated PDF viewer to the "developer" build of Chrome for Windows and Mac.

535,000 Sony Vaio PCs may overheat




Tokyo: Sony recently said that about 535,000 units of its "Vaio" brand personal computers globally may be in danger of overheating and that it has provided software on its website to eliminate the problem.

The company said in a statement that there have been 39 overheating cases in total, all reported outside Japan. Some of these have resulted in damage to computer bodies, but no burn injuries have been reported.

Some of Sony's F and C series Vaio PCs made in January this year and some custom-made models from the same series have been affected, the firm said. A Sony spokeswoman said the company has not estimated possible costs stemming from the problem.

World's first flying car gets green signal to take-off




Toronto: The world's first flying car, which was caught in a legal snarl in the U.S., has finally been given the green signal.
Being developed by Boston-based Terrafugia Transition since 2006, the dual-purpose car-cum-plane vehicle called 'the flying car' has got the waiver on its weight from the American Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).


Under FAA rules, the flying car - categorised as a 'light sport' aircraft - was required to be strictly under 1,320 pounds in weight. But with the addition of car safety features such as airbags, crumple zones and a safety cage, the vehicle overshot the weight-limit.
With the FAA now relaxing the rules for its weight, the decks have been cleared for the flying car - a two-seater named Transition - to take-off next year.

"Our schedule calls for the first delivery to be made prior to the end of 2011. We currently have in excess of 70 orders, which is about a two-year backlog," Richard Gersh, vice president for Terrafugia, told IANS.
Asked whether it was big corporates or individuals who have placed orders, Gersh said, "They are generally pilots who either own planes or have owned planes in the past."
About about their plans to raise production, he said: "Low volume production will take place in the Boston area. No decisions have been made for other production plans."

Costing about $200,000, the flying car will travel up to 725 km in the air at a speed of more than 115 km per hour.
Fuelled by gasoline, it will have front-wheel drive on the road and a propeller for flight. With its wings folded, it can be parked in an ordinary car garage. The company claims the flying car has been successfully test-flown many times.
It says tests have shown that the vehicle can drive, fly and switch from being a plane to a car in just 30 seconds.

Indian investors help MIT professor to make his dream real


Bangalore: Many of the great ideas gets stuck in labs just because the scientists don't have access to the right kind of supports. Now the Indian investors have started lending their hands to the budding inventors by providing enough funds to explore their innovative ideas. Deshpande Center for Technological Innovation, an MIT entity funded by two Indians investors, Jaishree Deshpande and her husband Gururaj, is lending a hand to the budding inventors to realize their dreams.

Douglas P Hart, a Professor of Mechanical Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, has won a support of $50,000 to convert his dream to reality. The Professor's new startup, Lantos Technologies, which developed a 3-D scanner that hopes to update the current generation of earphones and hearing aids by precisely fitting them to the dimensions of the ear canal, is set to lock up $1.5 million in funding. "We're hoping people will be able to walk in the store and have their ears scanned like people got their ears pierced today," said Hart, who sold his last startup for $95 million. "I wouldn't have known the first thing about doing all of this, if the people from the Deshpande Center led me through," recalls enthused Hart.

The Deshpande Center was established at the MIT School of Engineering in 2002 to increase the impact of MIT technologies in the marketplace. Since its inception the Center has funded more than 80 projects with over $9 Million in grants.

By providing academics like Professor Hart a bridge to the business world, MIT is in the forefront of a movement involving a handful of universities nationwide that work closely with investors to ensure that promising ideas are nurtured and turned into successful start-ups.

At first glance, the centers look like academic versions of business incubators. But universities are getting involved now at a much earlier stage than incubators typically do, reports Bob Tedeschi from New York Times. Rather than offering seed money to businesses that already have a product and a staff, as incubators usually do, the universities are harvesting great ideas and then trying to find investors and businesspeople interested in developing them further and exploring their commercial viability.

Hi Sajiv & Gingly Users,

Your Query has been solved.

Thank For your interest in finding bugs in gingly.com

If you forgot, your group code. Simply type MYGROUPS or MYGROUP from your registered mobile and send to 9566295662. You will get response, it contains the group name and group code of your groups.

And also now you can edit your group code.

We not suggest to change the group, bcz if you change the group code, but your group members not known your modified code.

Hi,

Dim x,sum,i,j as integer
x=5
sum=1
for (j=x; j>=1; j--)
{
for (i=j; i>=1; i--)
{
sum=sum * i;
}
}

Output : 34560

(5*4*3*2*1) * (4*3*2*1) * (3*2*1) * (2*1) * 1



if you want only 5! means


Dim x,sum,i as integer
x=5
sum=1
for (i=x; i>=1; i--)
{
sum=sum * i;
}


Output : 120

(5*4*3*2*1)

Hi Sajiv,

Even i had tried for several times to get it connected on linux server. But so far i have not done it.

But same works perfectly on windows server and localhost.




I'm working on a project where I have to query an SQL database (Microsoft SQL 2000) with PHP. The SQL database is on an external server.

I have all the connect info and am told the server's enabled in the firewall.

I've googled this several times and am quite confused with the response. Was wondering if anyone could point me to a reliable ODBC driver that's preferably free or open source.

-or-

If there's a better way for PHP to link up to the SQL database I'm open to suggestions.

My server is a Linux box with Apache2 running php 5.

Thanks in advance for any assistance/guidance you can provide.

GADD <groupcode> <mobileno>,<mobileno>,<mobileno>...

Add is we already used in global add for gingly.

And for groups, we maintain a keyword 'G'. So GADD is very suitable.
50
GINVITE  <groupcode> <mobileno>,<mobileno>,<mobileno>...

Invite is we already used in global invite for gingly.

And for groups, we maintain a keyword 'G'. So GINVITE is very suitable.
51
Hi Friendz,

My Preferable Code :

G <space>GroupCode<space> Message
0r
G[GroupCode] <space> Message


Group Number options => Its too difficult to have memory for all group numbers. If its code means, we receive the group sms with group code only.

GroupCode Message => Its very complicated. Because, if your inbox message may be start with the groupcode also.
For Example :
You Have A Groupcode as Mobile,Bus ....
Your Inbox may be starts with mobile,Bus also.

For Avoiding this cases only, we have the G keyword for all groups commands.
GADD -> For Adding
GInvite -> For Inviting
53
ADD <mobileNumber>,<mobileNumber>,<mobileNumber>...
54
Invite <mobileNumbers>,<mobileNumbers>,<mobileNumbers>....
55
Hi Friendz,

UNSUB <groupcode> to 9566295662

It's preferable, bcz Remove or stop is not suitable in programmer view.

Remove is not good sound word to unsubscribe the group.

Stop <groupcode> is good. but we want to maintain the separate table for stop services for every group.

Nowadays, its easy. But in future, we have more than 1000 groups means we want to maintain 1000 tables. Think how the data flow is?

So Only I Preferable For UNSUB.

Dear Team,

Any Forward Message is easy to register.

RCOM intros Push e-mail service on SMS

Reliance Communications ("RCOM"), India's largest integrated communication services provider and iseemedia Inc., a leading provider of messaging and content handling technology, today announced the launch of a ground-breaking SMS-based email service across Reliance  GSM and CDMA wireless network in India, serving more than 92 million subscribers.

This Email on SMS service effectively empowers RCOM subscribers to have their mobile phones to behave like smartphones and receive all their desktop email via SMS.  The Email-to-SMS technology is provided by Canada's iseemedia, a leading provider of low cost wireless email services to operators in the country.

In India where mobile phones have become an important part of everyone's livelihood the country is adding more mobile phone subscribes each month than any other. According to Informa Telecom & Media; India had 125 million new mobile phone subscribers for the year ending March 2009.

Text-based information services have become particularly popular in agriculture, healthcare and other sectors in India. The challenge for operators has been to deliver more sophisticated services using existing handsets that don't have access to the Internet. iseemedia's technology meets that challenge with the possibility to deliver next generation messaging without the cost of having to replace handsets.

Krishna Durbha, Head - VAS, Reliance Communications said, "iseemedia provides the ideal platform to deliver our next generation service to drive more email usage among our existing subscribers." We believe our push email service can deliver substantial revenue upside over the years to RCOM."

RCOM is leveraging iseemedia's multi-platform email solution known as iseemail to enable every mobile handset in India to act as a smartphone and enable users to check, download and retrieve email messages using the SMS interface. iseemail supports all types of email messaging systems in India through standard POP3 & IMAP4.  It also offers access to consumer messaging from Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo.co.in, Indiatimes emails and more.

Anthony DeCristofaro, President and CEO of iseemedia said, "Mobile connectivity has become more important in everyday lives in India. With Reliance we have the opportunity to promote mobile email to its 92 million subscribers and as a mass market solution to provide full email functionality on nearly 100 per cent of devices used in India. This will allow RCOM to increase its customer base as well as drive the adoption of mobile email usage through new value-added services."

RCOM is offering iseemedia's email service on its pre-paid as well as post-paid platforms as a subscription service charged at Rs.30 and a usage tariff of 0.50 paise per SMS sent. iseemedia receives a percentage of revenue from every user transaction.

UCSD fake-out

28,000 students were turned away from UC San Diego in one of the toughest college entrance seasons on record after a particularly cruel twist in the perils of instant communications.

All 46,000 students in the entire freshman applicant pool received the same misfired message of acceptance, which could have led to the largest freshman class at any university globally.

The 18,000 students who were actually accepted breathed a sigh of relief. Unfortunately, the rest of the applicant pool had to march on in the grueling college application process.
84
Tax terror

Britain's tax authority, HM Revenue & Customs, issued a warning about a rash of scam emails that used convincing (but fake) government email address in an attempt to lure recipients into divulging their personal information to receive a tax refund.

The scam messages claimed that recipients were entitled to a tax refund and asked for bank or credit card details, so that the fictitious refund could be paid out.

Like most legitimate businesses and government organizations, the HMRC stressed that it would not inform citizens of a tax rebate via email, nor would it invite them to complete an online form to receive a tax rebate.
85
Payroll panic

Payroll processor PayChoice was the victim of a website breach in which customers received targeted emails purporting to be from the company, but were designed to trick people into downloading malware.

Workers received emails that directed them to download a browser plug-in or visit a website to continue accessing the onlineemployer.com PayChoice portal.

Clients were notified within hours and the site was shut down. It was later learned that the emails were sent from a Yahoo! email account and the links were hosted from servers in Poland.

Judge orders gmail account deactivated

In August, Wyoming-based Rocky Mountain Bank mistakenly sent names, addresses, social security numbers and loan information of more than 1,300 customers to a Gmail address.

When the bank realized the problem, it sent a message to that same address asking the recipient to contact the bank and destroy the file without opening it.

No one responded, so the bank contacted Google to ask for information about the account holder. US District Court Judge James Ware in the northern district of California ordered Google to deactivate the email account and also disclose the Gmail account holder's identity and contact information.

The Gmail user hasn't been accused of any wrongdoing, but someone at the bank should be a little more careful when typing in the TO: field in an email.
87
Start-up suicide

Back in September, social media advertising and applications start-up RockYou, sent out a mass email to their customers and associates announcing their new site redesign, but instead of using BCC, they displayed the entire mailing list of over 200 email addresses in the CC: field. Not surprisingly, many of those addresses ended up on a spammer's list.

Two months later, the start-up sent out another mass email using a mailing list. Unfortunately, the email asked contractors to provide information for their W9 tax forms. This resulted in people inadvertently sending personal information to the entire mailing list.
88
Hotmail phishing

Most recently, more than 10,000 Hotmail accounts were compromised in October and passwords were posted on several websites where developers typically share programming code.

News site Neowin reported it had seen part of the list, which has since been removed, and notified Microsoft of the issue.

In this phishing scam, hackers sent out legitimate-looking emails under the letterhead of banks, eBay and other institutions, telling consumers they needed to reset online passwords to their Web sites for security purposes.

It seems that many of the affected account holders could have used a password reset. Security researchers with copies of the exposed passwords reported that "123456" was the most commonly used among them.
89
FBI forgery

The wife of FBI Director Robert Mueller banned him from online banking after he nearly fell for a phishing scam. Mueller received a seemingly legitimate email from what he thought was his bank, which prompted him to verify some information.

He even went as far as filling out some of his personal information before realizing it might not be a great idea.

He said he barely caught himself in time before falling victim to the scam. As a result, he changed his passwords and tried to pass the incident off to his wife as a "teachable moment."

However, that did not stop Mrs. Mueller from sanctioning Mr. Mueller's online activities.
90
Trojan Horse empties bank accounts

In September, it was reported that a banking Trojan horse, dubbed URLZone, had thwarted fraud detection systems, to enable software to actually steal money while users are logged in to their accounts and display a fake balance.

Victims' computers were infected either by clicking on a malicious link in an email or visiting a website that has been compromised with hidden malware.

The Trojan also kept a log of the victim's bank account login credentials, took screenshots, and snooped on the user's other Web accounts, such as PayPal, Facebook, and Gmail.

Nokia unveils 5 low-end phones

Nokia unveiled five new low-end phone models, aiming to improve its offering in the emerging markets.

The world's top cellphone maker is a dominant player in many key emerging markets with market shares of 60-70 percent, but it is under strong pressure as rivals such as ZTE are try to improve their position in the low-end of the market.

Nokia's new models are priced from 20 euros ($29.26) to 54 euros, excluding operator subsidies and local taxes. "The long battery life, with up to 22 days of standby time, is vital for people in areas where access to electricity is limited," Nokia said in a statement.

Most expensive new models, the Nokia 2220 slide and the Nokia 2690, priced at 45 euros and 54 euros, also support e-mail on the device through Nokia's Ovi Mail.

Nokia said it will open its Life Tools service -- which offers agricultural, education and information services to cellphones -- in Indonesia from early December 2009. It has offered the service so far in India.

Know if your Nokia charger is faulty

The mobile giant Nokia has started a charger exchange programme in which consumers owning certain Nokia-branded chargers manufactured by a third-party supplier are recommended to exchange these chargers for free replacements. The company recommends consumers with chargers within the scope of this exchange programme to stop using the charger and exchange it for a free replacement at the earliest.

In India, this charger exchange programme is limited to charger model AC-3E only (manufactured between June 15-August 9, 2009) for a single Nokia model, Nokia 7210.

Identifying chargers to be exchanged
Consumers can identify whether their chargers are a part of the Charger exchange programme in three ways:

* The first is a three-step SMS solution. Every charger has a 27 digit code printed on it. Consumers are requested to key in (CHG) SPACE (the 27 digit in the serial number of the charger). Example CHG 4956279274091613752;0675370

Users are requested to send in this number to to 55555. Consumers will then get a reply from Nokia `via sms' that will inform them whether their charger is included in this exchange programme. This easy three-step process will take a few minutes.

* Starting November 10, 2009, consumers can also walk into any Nokia Care Center or any Nokia Priority Dealership store (NPDs) across the country and check if their chargers are a part of this exchange programme.

* Consumers can also log into to http://chargerexchange.nokia.com and fill in their charger details and verify if the charger is part of the exchange program.

Exchanging identified chargers
For exchanging their chargers, consumers have the following two options:

* Visit the nearest Nokia Care Centre: Replacement chargers are available at the 700+ exclusive Nokia Care Centers only across the country starting November 10, 2009.

For more information on Nokia Care Centers, consumers can call 30303838 with the Local STD code of the city that he/ she is dialing from.

* Consumers can also fill in their address and contact details online on http://chargerexchange.nokia.com. Replacement chargers would then be couriered to the consumers.

Nokia to replace 14 mn chargers

Nokia will replace 14 million cellphone chargers made by China's BYD Co Ltd as chargers could fall apart and expose consumers to risk of electrical shock.

"We are undertaking this exchange programme as a proactive, precautionary measure. We are not aware of any incidents or injuries relating to these three (models of) chargers," said Nokia spokesman Doug Dawson.

The world's largest cellphone maker Nokia said BYD would cover all costs from replacement. An average charger sales price to phone manufacturers is around $1.

"The plastic covers of the affected chargers could come loose and separate, exposing the charger's internal components and potentially posing an electrical shock hazard if certain internal components are touched while the charger is plugged into a live socket," the Finnish firm said.

BYD spokeswoman Jasmine Huang said the company would issue statement later on the replacement.

"During internal tests, we found the chargers could have some problems," Huang told news agency.

Nokia said BYD chargers AC-3E and AC-3U, manufactured between June 15 and August 9, and AC-4U, manufactured between April 13 and October 25 would be replaced.

Nokia said it recommends consumers with chargers within the scope of this exchange programme to stop using the charger and exchange it for a free replacement.

Google launching free videoconferencing

Google is all set to strengthen its voice and video chat capabilities. The voice and video chat feature in the company's the email service, Gmail, is currently limited to one-to-one communication, however, Google wants to broaden this capability to more than two participants.

The Google Apps product manager Rishi Chandra told SFGate that Google is set to roll out its first update in a long line of updates that will include multi-user video conferencing.

Chandra told the web site, "This (current Gmail capability) is the first step in a much broader set of features we hope to roll out over the next six to 12 months around video (and voice) chat capabilities." He added, "It's a great opportunity for us to push that space along."

Google acquired Web and video conferencing software in 2007 from Swedish company Marratech.

Accenture to hire 8,000 in India

Global technology and consultancy giant Accenture on Monday said it is going to add around 8,000 people in India by the end of next year taking its total employee base in the country to 50,000.

"We are 42,000 right now and we imagine we will be about 50,000 by the end of 2010," Accenture Chairman and Chief Executive Officer William D Green said on the sidelines of the India Economic Summit.

Indicating a recovery from the global downturn, Green said the company will continue to focus in India, especially in the areas of analytics.

Accenture's focus in India is going to be the analytics space, which will help the clients convert information into insights for better yields.

Green added, "We believe that analytics is going to be an important trend that our customers are going to demand from us. We think India is going to be a great place for us. We have some core centres of excellence in the analytics space in the country."

Infosys BPO to hire 2000 by FY10

Infosys BPO, the back-office unit of IT firm Infosys Technologies, today said it would hire 1,500-2,000 people by the end of the current fiscal.

"We plan to hire 2000 people in the next four-five months or by the end of this fiscal. Currently, we are 16,000 people in India," Infosys BPO CEO Amitabh Chaudhry told reporters on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum.

The 300-million Infosys subsidiary recently signed an agreement with the Andhra Pradesh government to set up rural BPO centres in 22 districts of the state.

Infosys BPO gets significant part of its business from North America and Europe.

To bag more clients, it is said to be looking at aligning with Finacle, the banking solution business of its parent. Infosys BPO is also reportedly planning to set up a new delivery centre in the United States before the end of this financial year.

The back-office services wing of Infosys has eight delivery centres across the globe, including in Mexico, but it did not have a centre in the US so far.

Infosys BPO registered revenues of $71.3 million with a net profit of $16.3 million for the September quarter.
