How to: Call US from India for free using your smartphone

Vonage app lets you call any landline, mobile in US for free (right now).

Works on both WiFi and on mobile data. Just perfect.

Call to Vonage numbers will be always free with this app. Given the number of desis with Vonage landlines, its a godsend for a weekend chit-chat with your US friends!

How to: NTSC tv in india

If you are one of those folks tempted by low TV prices in the US

* it does not work with India cable or terrestrial
* NTSC to PAL convertors work, but have very poor results
* Sun direct HD works and so does Videocon D2H. Pretty much nothing else in the cable/D2H doesn't work.
Now blow away your savings on the capital expense on monthly cable expenses and enjoy!
