The MovieBeam

This is a $200 box which has a hard -disk which stores upto 100 DVD quality movies. Each week 8 new titles can be downloaded through a wireless antenna. Some HD moveies are also available. Old moveies are erased as new ones are added. You have to pay $4 for a new movie and $2 for a old movie. Easy to use and conveniently attached to the TV. Indian homes still don't own DVD players although its available for Rs.4000 only. So what do you think ? Is there a digital divide between Indians and Americans, with new products and new models announced every day. If you have the moolah, you can have a lot of fun.

hi rajeev,
thanx for visiting my blog and from my point of view there is a vast difference between indians and americans..
if we talk about about gadgets only then it is mostly used by elite class or by youth of today as they are more tends towads show of..
while majority of middle class dont use it as they just thing its waste of money and they feel more convinient using traditonal products..
but within 5 yrs this gap will mend up bcoz then the large proportion of our population will be of youth...
