Reliance Big TV Enhances usability of their website

Reliance Big TV, the leading direct-to-home (DTH) service provider in the country has enhanced their official website. The new site comes with a completely fresh and international look with free-flowing white spaces and fluid interactions. The new navigation interface adopted is simplistic and intuitive with the objective of increasing the average time spent on site. With a warm conversational tone, the content is aimed to provide enough info to category explorers to turn them into BIG TV customers while converting existing BIG TV customers into complete loyalists & advocates.
Sources state, the clear agenda for the site revamp was to use it as an effective marketing tool to garner new customers as well as to promote VAS to existing customers. The site achieves this by clearly directing ‘seekers’ vs. ‘users’ into separate sections. Interested customers can now order a new BIG TV connection online.

Bad Usability in Road Dividers

Look at this Picture , Road divider has no reflector to indicate that there is Divider and the height is also more, number of accidents occur due to this reason, Many NH roads have the similar problem.

Consider a scenario when the driver is coming at a good speed in that road during night time, the road is smooth and there is no divider or anything so he continues to go with the same speed or more, suddenly he sees a divider which is only a few meters away from him and he could not stop or slow the vehicle finally he ends up with an accident which is similar to the image above.

If there is a reflector in the divider or board he would have seen that much before coming near to the divider and avoided the accident.
