Beyond appropriation 12.8.2015 DNA: Money
Sundar Pichai’s elevation as CEO of Google has been met with a predictable mix of pride and hype in India. The achievement has assumed greater symbolism because it dovetails last year’s rise of another India-born and educated CEO, Satya Nadella, at Microsoft. The twin appointments, to the top echelons of the world’s two largest technology companies, are undoubtedly an affirmation of the progress made by Indians in Silicon Valley and a recognition of India’s strengths in the education and technical fields. But to give India credit beyond that would be to take away from the extraordinary achievements of these two men. Pichai hailed from a modest background and attended IIT Kharagpur, but it was in the United States that his career found wings. Pichai’s rise then becomes a testimonial of that country’s commitment to liberal values, that a first generation immigrant could, by dint of his intellect and toil, rise to occupy a coveted position in the corporate world. From assigning Pichai to the Google toolbar ...

Nokia to re-enter mobile phone market. Will it be successful? 10.8.2015 DNA: Mumbai
Nokia is hiring software experts, testing new products and seeking sales partners as it plots its return to the mobile phone and consumer tech arena it abandoned with the sale of its handset business. Once the world's biggest maker of mobile phones, the Finnish firm was wrongfooted by the rise of smartphones and eclipsed by Apple and Samsung. It sold its handset business to Microsoft in late 2013, and has since focused squarely on making telecoms network equipment. Now Nokia boss Rajeev Suri is planning a comeback. He must wait until late 2016 before he can consider re-entering the handset business - after a non-compete deal with Microsoft expires - but preparations are underway. The company has already dipped its toes into the consumer market; it has launched an Android tablet, the N1, which went on sale in January in China and, days ago, unveiled a "virtual-reality camera" - heralding it as the "rebirth of Nokia". It has also launched an Android app called Z Launcher, which organises content on ...
