100-MPG Air-Powered Car Headed To US Next Year

Pranjal Re:But.. (449 comments)

* The company has a very bad reputation of making ludicrous claims and misrepresenting stats
* It's made by Indian manufacturer Tata motors, not known for quality
I would like to disagree on these two points. Tata Motors is one of the biggest car manufacturers in India and part of the Tata group known for quality in all its product. It is one of the most trusted brand names in India. I doubt they will make false claims. They were in the news recently for making the cheapest car the $2500 Tata Nano

Pranjal (624521) writes "In an interview in Tuesday's edition of the Times Of India, Ballmer says piracy is having "a huge negative impact" on economic growth in India. He also cites an unnamed study indicating that 70% of all software used in the country is pirated. Reducing that number by 10% would lead to the creation of 50,000 new jobs in India, Ballmer says in the interview. InformationWeek.com has a commentary on the news item — "The concern, of course, is that a larger Microsoft presence in India would come at the expense of programming jobs in the U.S. Microsoft employees in Redmond may be hoping that India doesn't take its piracy problem too seriously — it may be the best job protection they have.""
