Bollywood radio on Android

I possess a HTC Droid Eris smartphone (Verizon Wireless, Android 1.5) and recently found a nice way to listen to online Hindi/Bollywood radio stations. Here are the steps:

1. Download StreamFurious application from Android Marketplace.
2. I usually listen to online radio stations that are run on Shoutcast
3. Go to Shoutcast in your browser, search for the radio station and click "Tune In"

One of my favorites is Radio Teentaal for a mix of popular Hindi Film and pop songs and .977 FM for Latest English Hits

Satyam scandal inspires spamsters

The recent Satyam fiasco in India has inspired creative spamsters to impersonate a family member of the Ramalingam family and send spam messages. Quite creative and I will publish a message that I received here in the hope that my blog does not get blocked :)


My name is Radha Ramalinga,I am the wife of Rama Ramalinga,the younger brother of Byrraju Ramalinga Raju,former chairman,founder and owner of Satyam Computers.

I do have a proposal for you,which would be of immense financial benefits to you and I.

My husband and his brother are currently in big trouble in India,I need your assistance to help me move some funds from Holland to India or anywhere where it would at least be of some help to our family.

I would give you more details of this proposal if you show yourself willing to take on it,I assure you that you would most certainly be compensated but please I would kindly request you to keep this matter confidential.

I am currently here in the UK where it is a bit safe for me and my kids.
