AGLOCO Update, It's Worth Signing Up

Just when I thought there was not going to be much information, a well known blogger posts an informative post with questions answered from Akshay Mavani, AGLOCO’s founder.

The first question answered is that the Viewbar will not have spyware. Well I personally don’t think too much of this. I know other people have but if the Viewbar launched and it truly contained spyware people would be leaving faster then you can click away from this page. Another minor point is that AGLOCO will tell everyone one beforehand what info is tracked so they can better target ads that will get. The second is what do you get for surfing per month and what do you get for your referrals?

1 Hour of Surf Time = 1 AGLOCO Share

Here is what AGLOCO says about it:

In the beginning of this program, AGLOCO will be rewarding members with shares of the company. 1 hour of surfing time equals 1 share. Members will be able to accumulate 5 shares per month based on the current limits. Members will get 0.25 shares per hour for people in their network. As an example, if some one has 1,000 members in his network and all 1000 members in his network surf the maximum 5 hours, he would receive 1,250 shares, plus 5 shares from his own surfing (for 5 hours max), totaling to 1,255 shares per month. How much will those shares be worth? It may be hundreds, thousands or even millions. It really depends on how fast the network grows and how well management handles this growth.

As AGLOCO starts to earn income from the Viewbar, members will be able to trade their hours for cash as well as shares. The amount per hour will be adjusted periodically to reflect income earned and company net worth. After a successful IPO, surf hours will mostly trade for cash, but shares will still be available. However, don’t expect to get 1 share per hour at that time.

So there could be a lot to gain and little to lose. So sign up for AGLOCO now. Click now to sign up

India: Huge Opportunities For Global Firms

The Indian market and its one billion plus population, presents lucrative and diverse opportunities for US exporters with the right products, services, and commitment. In recent times, the declining value of the dollar, vis-à-vis competitors' currencies, is expanding and accelerating these opportunities.

India's infrastructure, transportation, energy, environmental, health care, high-tech , and defense sector requirements for equipment and services will exceed tens of billions of dollars in the mid-term as the Indian economy globalises and expands.

India's GDP, currently growing at around 7 per cent, makes it one of the fastest growing economies in the world. Construction of nearly everything from airports to container ports to teleports is setting the stage to remake India.

GDP: $691 billion

Growth: Estimated 7-8 per cent or higher in 2005-06; 7 per cent in 2004-05.

Breakdown: Services equal 50 per cent of the GDP; industry and agriculture equal 50 per cent.

Ranking: 10th largest economy in the world and one of its fastest growing; fourth largest in purchasing-power parity terms.

Per capita income: $640 in 2004-05, (almost double the figure of two decades ago). Of the 1.1 billion people, 39 per cent live on less than $1 per day.

Purchasing power: In 2005, approximately 170-300 million people had growing purchasing power, thus creating a growing middle-class consumer population.

Youth Power: Over 58 percent of the Indian population is under the age of 20. That is over 564 million people, nearly twice the total population of the United States.

US - India Trade

Total Trade: Total bilateral trade in 2005 was $26.77 billion US. Exports to India in 2005 increased to $7.96 billion, a 30.3 per cent increase from the previous year Imports from India in 2005 totaled $18.81 billion, a 20.8 per cent increase from the previous year.

India at a glance

Population: 1.1 billion (Urban population - 28.4 per cent)

Retail Market Size: $286 billion (only 3.9 per cent is organised retail). Retail trade is booming in the country due to increasing disposable incomes of middle and upper middle class

Growth of Malls: 375 shopping malls by 2007 from 25 in 2003

Estimated space: 90 million sq ft.

Sign Up for AGLOCO, Seems Amazing

I will not be surpirsed if this becomes a $100 million company in a few months time. The concept seems cool and unbelievable.

I just signed up to be part of AGLOCO™ , an Internet economic network launched a few days ago. Basically, AGLOCO™ gives its Members part of the money they (as Internet users) generate. Their slogan is 'Get Your Share of the Internet'. They are also giving the entire company to the Members (it is a 100% Member owned entity.) -- You get more cash and shares if you refer new Members, which is one of the reasons I'm sending this to you all. Membership is free and it takes not more than 2 minutes to sign up. Click on this link now & sign up.

This is AGLOCO™ 's proposition, just three words: Own the Internet.

Whenever you are online, either surfing, blogging, clicking on an ad, making a purchase, all the money generated by your activities is pocketed by a small number of players. At AGLOCO™ they say not anymore!

AGLOCO™ is a global community, whose owners are its Members (you and potentially the millions of internet users out there). Their goal is to capture a significant portion of the value generated by our online activities and return it to Members in cash. Best of all, it is totally free, Members will NEVER have to pay anything, nor will they have to disclose ANY personal information!

How does this work? Once you sign up on their website, when available you will be able to download the Viewbar software, a free toolbar-sized application (half the size of a traditional Windows tool bar) that quietly sits on your desktop without ever hampering your online habits. That's all you need to do! Just continue using the Internet as you used to… no need to change your habits!

Do you have several individuals using one computer? You can have different AGLOCO™ viewbars to fit the profile of each user.

Don't want to see or use the Viewbar at any given time? Just minimize it and the Viewbar stops working!

There are different ways AGLOCO™ can make money for its Members:
  • Cash: You get cash by surfing the Internet while the Viewbar is running. AGLOCO™ 's profits are distributed back to its Members. And you can also receive real-time discounts should you choose to purchase from AGLOCO™ 's partners. They will never include gambling or adult entertainment sites as partners.
  • Shares: In addition to cash, AGLOCO™ will give out shares in the company to its Members. Eventually, AGLOCO™ plans to go public and will be traded on the London Stock Exchange AIM. You can start earning stock options by keeping Viewbar active while you surf. In addition, you will gain extra shares by referring active users to AGLOCO™ (they lose nothing).
The more people join AGLOCO™ , the more value the community can generate for itself. The company believes those that build the community deserve more: your own profits become larger the more people you refer. You can accumulate hours not only from your Internet activity but also from those who you refer, and their referrals too… Up to 5 levels underneath you! For example, if you refer 10 people and all of them refer 5 people each, you could make over 7000 shares a month*!

Remember, this is all free, you don't lose anything, all you have to do is sign up, download the Viewbar and that's it. AGLOCO™ has just launhced the Beta version now. Build your network and refer friends, family and colleagues to AGLOCO™ and earn even more!

The guys behind this idea include several Stanford MBA's and a few individuals who started AllAdvantage back in 1998, which gave over $100 million to its users before falling victim to the burst of the internet bubble. Today, the context is much more favorable: The sophistication of on-line commerce, the rapid emergence of communities, the wealth of advertising revenue sources, etc. Isn't it time you got your share of the Internet?

Don't wait any longer. This is a win-win opportunity, and you'll make it even more profitable for yourself when you start referring friends and relatives before others get to them! Since I assume you learned about AGLOCO™ thanks to my email, please click now on this link and sign up.

This is a win-win opportunity This link will automatically give credit when you sign up. If the link does not work for any reason then use my id which is BBBD3440.Once you sign up wait to hear from AGLOCO to download the Viewbar. Agloco is still in beta. Sign up now!

Who Says Money Cannot Buy Happiness?

Does money buy happiness? It's sometimes said that scientists have found no relationship between money and happiness, but that's a myth, says University of Illinois psychologist Ed Diener.

The connection is complex, he says. But in fact, very rich people rate substantially higher in satisfaction with life than very poor people do, even within wealthy nations, he says.

"There is overwhelming evidence that money buys happiness," said economist Andrew Oswald of the University of Warwick in England. The main debate, he said, is how strong the effect is.

Oswald recently reported a study of Britons who won between $2,000 and $250,000 in a lottery. As a group, they showed a boost in happiness averaging a bit more than 1 point on a 36-point scale when surveyed two years after their win, compared to their levels two years before they won.

Daniel Kahneman, a Nobel-Prize winner and Princeton University economist, and colleagues recently declared that the notion that making a lot of money will produce good overall mood is "mostly illusory."

They noted that in one study, people with household incomes of $90,000 or more were only slightly more likely to call themselves "very happy" overall than were people from households making $50,000 to USD 89,999. The rates were 43 per cent versus 42 per cent, respectively.
