NEW DELHI: Premium Swiss watch manufacturer Parmigiani Fleurier has forayed into the Indian market exclusively with Ethos Watch Boutiques.
The timepieces from the brand are priced over Rs 7 lakh, and will be available in all major metros through the network of Ethos Watch Boutiques within the next two years, Parmigiani Fleurier said in a statement.
Parmigiani Fleurier CEO Davide Traxler said, “The Indian market for our brand is unexplored, and we identified this opportunity to venture out to a new territory and make investments in India”.
“The watchmaking market is more stable today, and there will be obvious challenges along the way while growing and expanding, but with a brand like ours with some very sturdy roots, we can face the future head on. In Ethos, we have found the right partner…” he added. (PTI)
No evidence that search for ‘toilet paper’ showing images of Pak flag: Google
NEW DELHI, Feb 19:
Tech giant Google Tuesday said it has not found any evidence that search for ‘toilet paper’ on its site was showing images of Pakistani flag.
The clarification came after the screenshots of purported search results posted by some social media users went viral on Facebook and other platforms in the aftermath of the terror attack in south Kashmir’s Pulwama district that killed 40 CRPF personnel.
“While we continue to investigate the matter, we have not found any evidence that Google Images was ranking the Pakistani flag in response to this particular search,” Google spokesperson said.
The spokesperson added that many news outlets wrote about an old screenshot from a meme website that was inconsistent with Google’s UI (users interface) and dated back to 2017.
“We have not seen any independent verification that these results ever appeared as depicted,” the spokesperson said.
“Since these news stories published, images from those articles are now ranking for this query, as the pages contain words relevant to the search,” the spokesperson noted.
This is not the first time that the search giant has had to clarify on inappropriate results on its search engine. Last year, Google’s CEO was asked to explain to the US Congress why a search for the term ‘idiot’ yielded images of US President Donald Trump. (PTI)
