Fake emails claiming to be from ESPN - Be aware

An hour ago i received an email address claiming to be from the ESPN Office, from this email id reginak@research.haifa.ac.il , which the moment i saw knew was a fake. The email had no body and had an attachment a file called ESPN.docx. I opened the document using google docs and saw a 3 page document, I will list out a few parts from the email,

DEAR EMAIL OWNER,
THIS E-MAIL IS TO OFFICIALLY INFORM YOU THAT YOUR E-MAIL ADDRESS HAVE BEEN VERIFIED AND PRONOUNCED AS THE LUCKY WINNER OF £1,000,000.00 GBP, IN THE 2012 AWARD BY (ESPN STAR CRICKET DRAW PROMOTION UK) WISHES TO CONGRATULATE YOU OVER YOUR E-MAIL ADDRESS SUCCESS IN THIS FINANCIAL BAILOUT PLAN. YOUR E-MAIL ADDRESS EMERGED AS ONE OF THE TEN FINAL RECIPIENTS OF A CASH GRANT.
and later on they ask you everything from your name, to your email and your password. So we confirmed it was a fake and then we went on to the ESPN Cricinfo website and went to the feed back page, and i saw what they had written there,

PLEASE NOTE: If you have recently received an e-mail from a party claiming to be ESPN Cricket or ESPN Star Cricket, these e-mails are fraudulent messages and should be deleted.

So i wrote in to ESPN and told them about it and offered to forward the email if they wanted me to. So friends, if you ever receive such an email, be sure it is a fake and NEVER reveal your personal information or password to such people.

Why Anna University May/June 2012 results might be getting late

The B.E. results have been getting a lot late than usual and for currently pass-out 2012 batch the wait is getting too long. The results have been already published for students with no standing arrear papers upto the eigth semester, but those of them having arrears upto 7th semester will have to wait with the others to know their results.

Now a few days back The Hindu website online reported about a paper leak of the EDC(Electronic Device and Circuits) paper a day before the exam was conducted on June 29th. Now the EDC exam has been rescheduled to be held on July 31st. Students of Computer Science, Information Technology, Electronics and Communication and Bio-medical Engineering had taken the exam in June. 

We are not sure if this is holding back the results but if it is then it could be a very long wait as results would only be published after July. If that's not the case then results could get published in a week as the B.E. Part Time Results May 2012 were just announced a few days back. Whatever the reason maybe we wish the university come up and announce the results soon as a lot of students are waiting for their results so that they can get into a job.

Flipkart increases free shipping limit to 300Rs Purchases

The Indian online retail giant Flipkart.com has increased the limit of free delivery from Rs 200 to Rs 300.  Now if a user wants to buy an item which is under Rs 300 he will have to add an extra Rs 30 in-order to get it delivered. This we feel is a bad move by Flipkart, which is still our favorite online shopping website as they might lose customers to other contenders who offer free online delivery for the same items that are under 300. We are of the opinion that it could have at least been 250 instead of a sudden 50% hike.
