Globalization has been unravelling slowly but surely over the last several years.
U.S. businesses rethink a strategy that promised to lift companies and consumers the world over.

The shifting of manufacturing base of not so complicated machines had been going on for at least 20/25 years. I have personal knowledge of two cases where the owners were very keen to shift the manufacturing to the user country (in case of sat.steam turbine this was despite our protests. )The owners sensed a bigger markt and must have sensed easier profits. In both cases they franchised the manufacturing to local organisations which was less hassle for them and released manufacturing base in the parent country. I understand in China there was always a local partner, at least in the early 21st century to handle local matters incldg. local marketing. Cheaper cost of prodn. and vicinity to the mkt. were two main reasons. Ultimately local competitors started manuf.& mktg. of the items if the original owners wanted to hold on to an item with good demand. Haven't heard of any Singer m/c. case.

Google searches on mobiles now outnumber those on desktops in at least 10 countries, including U.S., Japan and, most likely, India.
Google Tuesday expanded its suite of ads for mobile devices that offer users information toward potential purchases, rather than just links.

In the age of AI and 'smart algorithms' machines would become the final arbiters of knowledge, trustworthiness and _'truthiness.'

Could heads-up directions and its integration with Android auto lead to safer driving in future? 
John Blossom originally shared:
 
Hmm, I could really use heads-up turn by turn directions, but do I really want text messages out there also? If something like this gets integrated with +Android Auto and other in-dash mobile services, I hope that it will provide the stuff that keeps us safe first.

French govt. moves to assume sweeping and intrusive surveillance powers over its citizens.
Incidentally, the Indian govt. has had similar powers since 2008 and the legislation in this regard was passed without any discussion or debate in Parliament. 
A measure would give the intelligence services the right to gather potentially unlimited electronic data from Internet communications, and to tap cellphones and capture text messages.

Cosy, nice ambience, brightly lit and clean. The food is good and reasonably priced. Was somewhat disappointed though to find that they do not serve South Indian filter coffee, despite being a place whose fare is almost wholly S. Indian.

Interesting case study! Have never been there though this outlet is pretty close to where I usually stay when in Kolkata. Also, this is possibly one of their early outlets, if not the first one. The song by Manna Dey was greatly popular during the 70s and possibly early part of the 80s. Not quite sure whether young adults today or even folks in their 30s have any kind of fond memories or even nostalgic memories associated with the original song. Re: the other aspects, for this outlet specifically, the feedback I have received from old friends & relatives has been rather negative. Am told there's nothing out-of-the-ordinary as far as the fare is concerned, prices of most dishes aren't quite value for money, service is below par and waiting times during certain days & hours can be irritatingly long. Maybe some of this is right and maybe it isn't but, given this feedback, have no motivation, to try out things, specifically at this outlet. P.S. There appears to be some wrong classification here. Bengali cuisine, while it may have a few seafood dishes can't be primarily classified as seafood as the bulk of the non-vegetarian offerings would happen to be river fishes of one kind or another or red or white meat.

Has degenerated over the years into a seedy, somewhat sleazy place which mostly screens local movies interspersed with the occasional Bollywood ones. The auditorium is infested with bedbugs, cockroaches & possibly even blood-sucking leeches. Visit this place at your own risk.

Food quality can greatly vary depending on the client on whose behalf they are doing the catering. I've had a range of stuff from Bijoli Grill over the years - some of it quite good, some of it mundane and some of it yucky! Wish they exercised more quality control & demonstrated greater consistency.

I have been here only a couple of times. The first sight that greets you is that of a bunch of youngsters playing basketball. Other than that there appear to be a whole lot of offices in Level 1 & Level 2. During one of my visits I was looking for a Food Court but was told it wasn't there. There is a Hans cafe instead.

One of the oldest & best known outlets for traditional Bengali sweets. While quality remains good, it has suffered at the hands of some of its more contemporary competitors in terms of range, variety & packaging.

Some hot nice curry puffs & pratas can be had from the Malay Stall in the evenings. Most of the other stalls are closed anyway. Mostly it is a hangout for the late evening beer drinkers with the Karaoke joint in the Community Centre next door providing some business, one supposes.
