Call Centre , BPO , KPO ???? Prep Resources

Please help me to know what is the difference between
call center , BPO , KPO (k=knowledge).
What are the chances of growth in KPO which deals with IP ( Intellectual property) rights?
Is it really upcoming feild? Excluding Evalue serve are there any more companies?
what cud ...
And just to add one more thing...ITS NOT AN EASY JOB!!!!! believe me....just joined a pretty reputed concern to get extra cash(planning to get an electric guitar )will probably quit at the end of the month ,got to look at how they work....

It's not very easy,seriously,humans can be very cruel at times,words are mightier than the sword people insult you,your family,your country( A LOT!):wow: ...and you can even shout back!!!! if you do you lose your job.They talk in soo many different accents,you gotta kiss a**...and the timings on top of that..calls go on for more tha 1 hour...If your in microsoft tech supp

One thing is your lifestyle completely changes,cause you get to do much during the day...and you cant sleep at nights,cause you get soo used to the work timings...

The employees are mostly transient,Less than 50% of the employees join bpos as their first choice,mnost of them join to get quick cash,the others join while their looking for another job... But one thing I learnt out of this one month experience,patience and control,I'm a guy who usually shouts his head of and tries to be as fast as possible,and one more thing it teaches you to do is to look at the problem to be solved and not how irate the person maybe,and it helps you talk to people....
