The Hindu has tapped the market with a tie-up with, The products would be from but the marketing would be from The Hindu print Ads where The Hindu will get a commision on selling the products from thier own site. This is very similar concept of outsourcing the work process.

Google's New Plan for Revenue

Google has always been one to go against the wind. When the rest of the world was setting 2MB or 5MB storage limits on their email services, Google went out and launched Gmail with 1GB of storage. Later, it made the account seemingly unlimited with a counter on the Gmail home page that showed storage increasing by the second.

And now that major email service providers are offering unlimited storage to their users, Google has served up a turnaround and announced that it will charge users for storage beyond a limit. Ryan Aquino, software QA engineer lead, Picasa Web Albums, wrote on the Official Google Blog a few days ago that beyond the free storage limit of 2.8GB for Gmail and 1GB for Picasa Web Albums, users will be charged from $20 a year for 6GB, going up to $500 for 250GB.
