Xbox One, the latest series of gaming console developed by Microsoft has created a new record in the Xbox history: Over 1 million units were sold within 24 hours of its launch on November 22, 2013.
Xbox is an iconic gaming console series, which was first introduced in the year 2001 by Microsoft. The inventor of this console was Atari Jaguar, which ceased production in 1996 after selling 24 million units. In the year 2005, Microsoft introduced Xbox 360 which has sold more than 77 million units as of April, 2013. The successor to Xbox 360 is Xbox One, which has broken all previous Xbox records by selling more a million units in the first 24 hours.

SBI Turns Your Shop Next-Door Into A Mini-ATM

Government owned banks like SBI are always looked upon a like boring place to be in. A behemoth in banking but a novice in innovation. So was it thought. But not after you read this.
Way back in July 2009, the Reserve Bank of India had permitted cash withdrawal at Point-of-Sale but the service had not taken off owing to various reasons including lack of clarity on processing fee structures.
