I like the newsletter you've created. It is a nicely written and concise resource which I believe is of use for the community. Personally, I think that the small quotations you've put at the footer of each page is a nice touch too.

I had gone through the newsletter in detail. Honestly, I do not avidly indulge in this ‘to be’ critical business requirement of the near future, except for the information from daily newspaper.
But this newsletter was an information bank for me – from the introduction to the mechanism on Technology transfer to the recent news on new technologies and its impact on the consumer & the owner to the legal issues is very lucid & connects well. Kudos to you and Thank you very much for sharing with me.

I have read this newsletter and it looks very good.  My only thought is that whether the front page could be made a bit more visually appealing for the reader in a hurry, as most people are. At the moment there is a lot of text which I suspect that a lot of readers may not take in. I think the rest of the newsletter is good – interesting and varied content can be digested quickly and has a nice amount of detail.
