Its been quite some time that I have been seeing the recorded video.

No news on the swift as of now.

Just a gimmick to create more hype I guess!
The actual webcast has now begun. 12.15 pm.

May be MSIL thinks that the product is such a success there is no reason for publicity

But I was when I did see the empty seats.. Hope it isn't a reflection about the things to come

Cheers

Hope that's not the case and people are busy today with demands of Anna Hazare Release and Lokpal draft.

They are the ones responsible for the crashed / broken windshield Swift that we saw pictures of previously.

Seriously! they should learn some from Apple's product launches. They are speaking like yesteryear's DD newsreaders - no enthusiasm and no spark!

And I still see a lot of empty seats - by any chance, is GTO or any mods from T-BHP there?

Enough of song and dance now, prices please
