    Amazon is nothing less. Checked the price for IPhone 5c/s for the last 2 days, and it was lower than what they are showing presently at discounted rates. Just a publiticity gimmick by all online retailers. Who can blame them for cashing in on the Diwali madness.

          Flipkart made the biggest mockery in the E-Business space today. Iphone 5s Gold was selling on their website before this for 34,000, today during the , they are priced at 43,000. Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 was sold out before 8.20am which indicates, that it was just an article to get people to their sites.No wonder Amazon CEO is not fazed at this success of Flipkart. It is just a bubble which is waiting to burst in sometime. When the bubble burst will happen, flipkart will sink, along with it, it will also take, Snapdeal, Myntra and shop clues too.Any proper business establishment, will send promos to existing customers who have been shopping with their website for 3-5 years first. These people are sent links so that they stay loyal against a particular retailer. Here in the quest to make it number 1, all new registrations were opened and dumb tactics evolved to create a virtual traffic.First time when Redmi 1s was launched on flipkart, the site went down. It crashed several times, coz flipkart was not sure how many people would register. No proper load testing done at that time. This time for the billion dollar , the servers had restrictions on the number of connections. So the moment, the connection number increases, messages would be popped stating that "Server Timed out ..... Please try after sometime"Yeah this sort of a business process, you definately dont get taught in ordinary schools, you need to be a IIT and IIM to achieve itHATS OFF!!!!
