Airlift – Airport Transfer Services for Bangloreans 🙂 . Cheapest and luxurious travel alternative to the new Airport. Classy way of travel to the jazzy new airport 🙂

Airlift has started an Airport Transfer Service for people of Bangalore. Since the New airport is far from the city and people feel (actually it is 😦 ) that Airport Transfers will become very expensive for the Passengers, there is a definite problem to commute to and from the New Airport.


Airlift is introducing services to make airport Transfers less expensive (affordable) and still provide the required luxury while serving customers. Airlift picks up the customers from the Airlift pickup points and drop them to the airport and vice versa bring them to the city from the airport.


Why Airlift:

  • Airlift will be 6 seat air conditioned Toyota Innova.
  • Individual Bucket seats for all 5 passengers.
  • Airlift will have a LCD screen on each passenger seat for personalized entertainment system, these screens will show 5 channels with different contents.
  • Airlift has ample overhead covered and secured luggage space.
  • Airlift will be Wi-Fi enabled for passengers to browse the Internet on the screens and as well as with their laptops.
  • Airlift will be driven by Auto (not the three wheeler auto-rickshaw 🙂 ) Pilots who will be in uniform and well trained to communicate and present themselves to the customers.
  • Airlift will also be tracked by GPS system to ensure efficient on time services and tracking every vehicle to make sure of complete security of passengers.
  • Airlift is being designed to provide complete comfort and help the passenger to use their commuting time productively.

Xobni – Now available as public beta

Xobni (pronounced as Zob-nee) is the Outlook plug-in that saves you time finding email conversations, contacts and attachments. This has been first introduced to me by one of my colleagues saying its much more easier to find emails and attachments sent to our inbox. Xobni was first released as an invite-only Beta version. Luckily I got an invite from my colleague for such a very good tool for managing emails.

Now Xobni is available public for downloads. Xobni can be downloaded from here.

You might wonder how the name Xobni is given to this tool. If you reverse the word Inbox from the last letter to the first, you will get Xobni (Inbox -> Xobni)

This is how your outlook will be transformed after installing Xobni.


After a quick install, you’ll see the new Xobni toolbar appear in Outlook – and suddenly information will become much easier to find. When a new email arrives, the sender’s full communication history appears in the Xobni sidebar, including past conversations, attachments and contact details. Xobni also includes a blazing fast email search tool. The search tool is fast in the sense that it provides  you with the results even as you finish typing which is one of the most liked feature by me. Other features which I like include, the attachments list sent by a particular user. You don’t even have to search for the mails with the attachments. All the attachments sent by a particular user will be separated and listed in order so that you can pick the one you needed instantaneously.

Other features also include email analytics which analyses your email usage and displays graphs, charts and ranks of people whom you are in touch with. Threaded conversations which provide a continuous conversation thread with a particular person. Automatic Phone number extraction from emails without you doing much. Xobni scans through the email text automatically and gets you the phone number of the person. While this feature gives you almost perfect results with some minor variations if at all any. One more interesting feature is the personal assistant which allows you to fix an appointment schedule or a meeting schedule by automatically selecting the free slots from your calendar.

Download it and experience the power of managed emails at your finger tips.
