Pinterest in India: What it means to consumers

Few days back, my wife was trying to get ideas on interiors, kitchen accessories, decorative pieces, lampshades, cushion covers, curtains etc. Henceforth, she used Google to match her needs. It was a tiring and cumbersome process to look into websites of every interior designer and then download the catalogue and collate such images.


Has Flipkart started charging premium for 30 days replacement guarantee?

Thought of buying a phone  few weeks back. Flipkart's name came into my mind and immediately I started searching mobile phones in the range of 15-30k category.  Saw couple of Samsung, Motorolla etc. but got stuck with Nokia Lumia 800. The price Flipkart was quoting was around 24k and was the best price that any ecommerce site could quote(I thought). But flipkart proved me wrong, when I checked the same phone in Indiaplaza. I was shocked, they were offering the same price but 3k cash back (effectively that  would have cost me 21k).
