3G in 2011: Cellular Operators Already Backing Off? is a post from: ProPakistani
As the regulator and Government seem pumped up for 3G license auction (latter in 2011), it looks that cellular companies in Pakistan are now looking for ways to escape the expedition.
Reasons are apparent,
Now, the cellular companies are lobbying through media to make sure that government/PTA's campaign for 3G gets hampered. In a story produced today in 'The News' has plenty of evidences of what I just said.
Here is how the news item starts:
Just to mention here, this is not the first time cellular operators have opposed the idea of 3G in media. But the thing is that they go unnamed or via sources in the papers. None of the cellular companies have dared so far to publicly mention their reservations, probably due to their respective corporate profile.
The News further writes on PTA's claim of 100 million subscriber as following:
He further explains the ARPU levels due to multiple SIMs and how they are hindering investment coming into the country as following:

The school going girls are not mentally matured, thus they are more attracted and inclined towards the social evils and immoral activities.
They do not like taking guidance from their elders and like to undergo different experiences themselves.
In this article, we will discuss various elements in order to judge and choose between mobile phone and Laptop for school going girls.
Mobile Phones Can Easily Get Un-noticed: They can easily take their mobile phones with them at school and tuition centers – unnoticed by their parents.
They should only own a mobile phone when they get really mature enough to use them properly. I think girls should not be allowed to have a mobile phone until they reach to 14 grade (Graduation).
School have Strictly Prohibited Mobile Phones: Almost all the schools in Pakistan have implemented policies that prohibit using mobile phones in school. They even rusticate those girls who are found with the mobile phone. Many girls bring their SIM card instead of a mobile phone and they use their SIM on a mobile phone brought by one of their classmates.
Therefore, school administration and parents should make sure that the girls do not have a SIM card with them – they should check them and their belongings (books, school bag, hair bands, water-bottle, lunch box etc.).
Now many of you might be thinking that how their daughters and sisters can contact home if they are away – simple – they can make a call with the permission of their school administration via school's landline number.
SMS/MMS: Many school students are addicted to the SMS service . Some also send their pictures via MMS to the opposite gender – especially when they have made friends in co-ed schools and tuition academies.
Wastage of Time: The students waste their valuable time in sending and reading text messages, playing mobile games, using mobile applications – instead of spending that time in their studies.
Mobile Cellular companies are also introducing 'Youth Packages' and SMS-bundles offers to promote their business and indirectly spoiling the youngsters. The students are seen messaging and calling late nights as they have subscribed to these packages. Parents should make sure that their children have a mobile phone and if they have then make them use post-pay packages so that parents can monitor on their kids.
Use of Laptop for doing the School Homework: Laptop is a better for school girls as they can compose their assignments and search for the materials for their assignments from the internet.
Not only this, they can have a record of their assignments in their laptop. The laptop will also help them in making PowerPoint slides to aid them in their classroom presentations.
Observe School-going Children when they Use their Laptop: Laptop is better for school going girls because – if they do not have a mobile phone they would not be able to give their mobile phone numbers to boys and strangers - is it that simple? No! they can communicate via internet too.
It is the duty of the parents that they observe their activities on the internet and disallow them to make accounts on the social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, MSN Live Spaces, Hi5, Friendster and Orkut etc.
School going girls (boys too) should not be allowed use on the Instant Messengers and visit websites with Chat feature and web-messengers. As many school students trick their parents and even school staff by using web-messengers – as they can be used without being installed on the system.
Parents should make sure that the girls do not upload their photographs on any website or given their contact details or information, as some girls join different discussion forums too.
Parents and school Computer Lab Dept should install programs like NetNanny www.netnanny.com and Spector Pro etc. in the computers, to keep a check on the and restrict their activities by blocking some websites that are not fit for them – including Social Networking websites and YouTube etc.
No doubt that both the devices come with hazards, however, laptop comes with possible benefits as well. If controlled and monitored better, laptops can be of great advantages for the school going girls, which will not only enhance their education experience but will help them in their careers as well.

Last year Google decided that it wasn't going to let other services automatically export contact information from users' email addresses, unless the service offered the same in return.
The change meant that users weren't able to import their contacts into sites like Facebook, since it doesn’t allow export of contacts' email addresses.
It seemed like Google got angry at the fact that you can find friends on Facebook using Gmail, but there is no way that you can find contacts on Gmail using information on Facebook.
This only highlights the increasing rivalry going on between Facebook and Google.
Previously, Facebook made deals with Hotmail and Yahoo to let them access its contact information. But since Google didn’t make a similar deal, Facebook has left Google out of it.
This was Google's way of trying to pressure Facebook into making it share its contact info with it, because, the more data it has, the better Google search becomes.
Suppose that Facebook does let Google access its information, Google can then provide a more personalized search result for any query since it knows your preferences from your likes and pages you visited on Facebook. How did Facebook respond? They made a workaround, namely directing the users to the page where they can download their Gmail contacts manually and upload them to Facebook.
On this move, a Google spokesman commented
They did however, put up a "public service" message when Facebook redirected you to import Gmail contacts:
Then a few days later the page stopped appearing when users attempted to import Gmail contacts into Facebook, its not entirely clear whether Google stopped using it themselves or a settlement was reached.
The page itself is still online though. Now, however, Facebook has entirely dropped Gmail. Now when you import contacts, Gmail isn't even an option. And even if you sign up with a Gmail address, Facebook won't try to import all your contacts.
In the only official comment made by Facebook, their spokesman said that Google was concerned only because Facebook is more popular and a competitive threat. Whether its true, or simply a jab at Google is up to the reader to decide. But one thing is for sure, this certainly won't be the last issue where these two giants collide as both continue in their pursuit to dominate the online world.
