The ear is designed to integrate electronics with biology and create a flexible and fleshy alternative to mechanical prosthetics.

choosing_fabrics_version_2

Times of India reports

Online furniture retailer Urban Ladder expects to break even on an operational basis when its revenue reaches $200 million, which may happen by the middle of next year.

According to Ashish Goel, CEO of Urban Ladder :

“Once we get to a $150-200-million net revenue range by middle of next year, we will focus on getting our contribution margin to the 25% zone, for the first 18 months of our business, our contribution margins were over our marketing, since we have been pressing on growth (recently). So our marketing spend has increased, but we have that differential under control, We expected growth of six times. However, sometime midyear we decided to slow down for two months and focus deeper on the customer experience. We pulled back on marketing, pushed back on category launch, focused on certain top categories, operational efficiencies and redefine architecture,”

It would be a milestone for the online shopping industry of India as the break-even is something which the industry is starving for. Shopclues, a popular Indian online marketplace is also in the line of the break even as according to the company it will get to the break-even point by next winters.

Urban Ladder was launched in 2012 to compete in home decor market in India. According to the news, the company has managed to raise around  $50 million from investors led by Sequoia Capital, TR Capital, Steadview Capital, SAIF Partners and Kalaari Capital. A $100 million value of funding was raised by its straight competitor in July this year and it was led by Goldman Sachs, Zodius Technology Fund, and existing investors Bertelsmann India Investments and Norwest Venture Partners. Raising funds is important but they are not a guarantee of success. Turning profitable was the goal of Urban ladder which it claims to achieve soon.

Zomato will not do advertisement on Po*n sites

In a latest blog post by Zomato, the CEO has complied with the fact that using p*rn sites to attract users will not be continued in light of criticism this online food aggregator is getting. Earlier, Zomato started a new concept of advertising on the platforms which contained obscene videos. The campaign was started keeping in mind the high traffic and low advertising rates on the sites.

The idea was to get users who, after spending some time alone, gets hungry and feels the need of food which can be ordered from Zomato. According to their blog post :

“We were talking about how to tap into the already buzzing late-night delivery space, and started looking at innovative marketing opportunity areas. Highly optimised Adwords, Facebook, and Twitter ad campaigns are commoditised and therefore quite expensive. The alternative seemed almost obvious when someone said ‘Hey we should try advertising on porn sites’, and then justified it with ‘look, people watch porn, and people get hungry, so stop judging me.’

image

It was an idea worth looking into at the very least, so we did. As it turns out:

  • India ranks #5 in terms of most daily visitors to Pornhub (the world’s biggest porn site network)
  • Outside of Google, Facebook, Yahoo, and e-commerce sites, Xvideos is one of India’s top visited sites
  • The average time spent on the site by Indians is ~8 minutes (yes, really, just 8 minutes #quickgunmurugan)

So we advertised on p*rn sites.”

Here are some of the images used by Zomato:

This is not the first time Zomato is in news, earlier it blew away Amazon in humour during ‘aur dikhao’ campaign by Amazon.

Zomato Amazon

Anyway, the justification made by the company is that the ROI is the most critical factor in any business, if a business do not work on the principle of investing less and earning more it will end up burning all of its money. The deals and coupons and fine till a time to attract visitors but what next? So, in order to get more guys ‘craving’ for food with hunger during night is to run campaigns via advertising on porn sites.

Looks like Ritesh Agarwal, Oyo chief executive Officer is planning to capture the market as much as he can, even if it means buying its strongest rival Zo Room. According to news by ET, Oyo rooms is planning to buy its main rival Zo room in an all-stock deal. The news is not a big shock in context of the information about Zo Room’s inability to raise further funding to sustain its operation in India. The news is a big blow to the startups competing in the same sphere as that of these two companies.

According to the reports, 40% of the employees will be absorbed in Oyo Rooms. Zostel was founded 2 years ago with a capital of Rs20 lakh with a motto of providing air-conditioned dormitories with laundry service, TV, internet and other facilities for under Rs 500 a night to travellers smart on budget.

The Reason of acquisition:

The reason of acquisition is the fact that Zo Rooms has failed to raise any further funding from its investors. In fact the blow of this inability is so heavy that Oyo Rooms set itself up to grab Zo Room inadvertently grabbing a big market share and a large chunk of potential revenue. Zo Room hasve around a network of 11,000 rooms in 1,000 hotels across more than 50 cities and towns in India

What to learn?

Expand, but never over Expand. Take Risk but calculated one. These are the two most important lessons which the acquisition of Zo rooms teaches us. Have they had been able to forecast the growth potential, they could have gained the expected potential growth in some time more than expected one.

These 10 things complete your smartphone

Memory Cards:

These are not simply just storage devices but are a portable flash storage which can be used to save, store, transfer files and even become a part of your next smartphone. ROM can vanish with phone but memory card is something which backs up your data in hard times. It is highly recommended to have a memory card even if your handset gives 100GB of storage.

Cases & Covers:

Both of these accessories falls in the same category but have different following. Have a mobile case if you wish to flaunt your phone with an awesome design or a plain color. Cover it up if you are a person with a stronghold on your possessions.

Headphones and Headsets: (The Music Pitch)

There is a difference between a Headphone and that of a Headset. A Headset is something which is used for hearing as well as talking through a microphone whereas a Headphone is something a which can be fitted through the ears and is used only for listening.

Chargers:

Nearly all of the smartphone manufacturing companies gives a charger with the phone during sale. However, one can lose a charger during refurnishing or rearranging the house (generally in India during Diwali). This would be a crisis as we can live without food for a day but spending a few hours with a dead battery is something more or less like a nightmare. There are two ways to solve this issue, one is to keep borrowing someone else’s charger or just buy another charger to save yourself from this kind of crisis.

PowerBanks:

Do you love to travel? Do you love to take your smartphone with you on every journey? Do you have a charger back at your office or at your college? If the answer is – ‘yes’, ‘yes’ and ‘no’ then have a powerbank right now. This would be a salvation from your battery issues.

Data Cables:

Transfer your data with it, use your smartphone as a pendrive or use it as a charger, its upto you. A data cable is something which is one of the most important accessories one must have with him, her.

Cleaning Kit:

It’s important to have a Cleaning kit with a smartphone. Though most of the smartphone users do not prefer or care about having a cleaning kit with them, a cleaning kit not only add neatness to a product you carry but also increases the life of a phone. Anyways, ‘Screen Off’ mode is a translucent mirror in case you are missing a selfie camera.

Screen Guards:

The most important or a must have accessories. A screen guard is something which prevent a phone from various types of scratches and minor damages. If you happen to work along your keys in your pocket then a screen guard/protector/tempered glass is a nectar to your smartphone’s screen.

Car Mount:

A car mount is something which would let to drive and navigate at the same time. It is good for those who travel a lot via car. It is the key driving element of companies like Ola & Uber and more.

An Extra Battery:

Just in case.
