Technology drives BALLOONs to provide internet in remote areas

Google launches huge balloon which has the ability to provide internet in remote and difficult terrain — mountain ranges and jungles.

Wonder how these balloons could stay at a fixed point???
The basic idea behind this is that these huge balloons make use of wind,solar energy and complex algorithms to stay in a fixed part of the sky.

Google says its ultimate goal is to bring Internet to the two-thirds of the world that do not have or simply can't afford Internet access. 

check the video below to know the extraordinary idea how this actually works :

Now u can listen to the voice of telephone inventor - ALEXANDER GRAHAM BELL


Alexander Graham Bell

The most common gadget each and every person holds today is none other than Mobile,which was developed based on the idea of telephone.

The inventor of such a wonderful thing (Telephone) may have died over 90 years age but still u can hear his voice.

Smithsonian researchers recovered Bell's voice from a historical recording by using optical technology, Smithsonian Magazine reported.

The recording was recovered from a wax-and-cardboard disc that dates back to April 15, 1885, the magazine said.

I guess you are very excited to hear his voice now. Aren't you?

"— hear my voice, Alexander Graham Bell.”

Technology turns paper in to touchscreen developed by FUJITSU

The technology has been grown so rapidly that every device or gadget we use is made of touchscreen including mobile, ipad, computer and many more.But what about paper???

Fujitsu has developed a technology that detects objects your finger is touching in the real world, effectively turning any surface — a piece of paper, for example — into a touchscreen, DigInfo reports.

Taichi Murase, a researcher at Fujitsu's Media Service System Lab explains "This system doesn't use any special hardware; it consists of just a device like an ordinary webcam, plus a commercial projector. Its capabilities are achieved by image processing technology".

Possibility to hijack a plane with android app-HUGO TESO

Imagine the kind of chaos a malicious hacker could cause if he or she were able to take over an airplane simply using android phone. with a tap of his or her fingers, the hacker could arbitrarily control the plane remotely and redirect its path. Does it sound like a Hollywood movie plan,think again, because that's exactly the scenario a German security researcher laid out on Wednesday at a
conference in Amsterdam.

Hugo Teso, a security researcher for the German IT consultancy firm — he is a trained commercial pilot as well — explained at the Hack in the Box security conference that a protocol used to transmit data to commercial airplanes can be hacked, turning the hacker into a full-fledged hijacker.

The flawed protocol is a data exchange system called Aircraft Communications Addressing and Report System, or ACARS. Exploiting its flaws, as well as the bugs found in flight management software made by companies like Honeywell, Thales, and Rockwell Collins, Teso maintains he can take over a plane by sending it his own malicious radio signals. To do that, he has created an exploit framework, codenamed SIMON, and an Android app called PlaneSploit that can communicate with the airplanes' Flight Management Systems (FMS). 




Twitter is about to launch its music app this weekend

Its time to rock. Twitter is about to launch its long-rumored standalone music app this weekend, according to a report.

We Are Hunted announced it had been acquired by Twitter. (Another poorly kept secret, this acquisition likely occurred last year and was revealed by CNET last month.)

We Are Hunted focused on the top trending music on social media, and the Twitter Music app will likely do the same — plus suggest what other tunes you might like based on what you've listened to, and allow you to buy tracks via iTunes.

A streaming-only service, it will feature Sound cloud clips you can listen to from within the app and music videos from Vevo, according to AllThingsD. CNET previous reported that the app would be divided into four sections, including "#NowPlaying", and that a Twitter account would not be necessary to use it.

What we don't have a lot of details on is what platform the app is launching on. CNET's report said it would be iOS only,AllThingsD's sources don't specify.

Will this be an another app that android users have to wait more time to experience it?

Set top box mandatory in INDIA

All this started because of digitization(set top box) of analogue cable system.TV signals are distributed to households through various platforms such as cable, direct-to-home (DTH), internet protocol TV (IPTV) and headend-in-the-sky (HITS). Cable is the largest platform, followed by DTH.

Cable TV distribution broadly involves three phases: broadcasters encrypt their signals and transmit them to a satellite; multi-system operators (MSOs) download these signals and pass them on to local cable operators; these LCOs then carry them to consumers through co-axial cables or optical fibres.

DTH eliminates the need of an intermediary between the MSO and the consumer. The consumers have to install a small satellite on their rooftop and can download the signals transmitted by MSOs. A set-top box decrypts the signals and viewers can watch channels of their choice.

DTH signals are transmitted through a wireless technology and the system is digital. IPTV uses broadband and is also digital.

Why digitise everything?


This is post is about helping you guys regarding any software, e-books and games for free and easy.You can comment here the necessary software's or e-books you people are looking for.I will provide the links which are completely verified only u need to download clicking those links...

May be an end to the Mystery of DARK MATTER

The powerful Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer-2 (AMS) is visible at center left.

The question still points out what exactly happening on dark side of cosmos,but scientists said on Wednesday that they might be on verge of finding out what makes up the mysterious dark matter that gives the shape to the visible structures of universe.

A massive particle detector mounted on the International Space Station may have detected elusive dark matter at last, scientists announced Wednesday.

The detector, the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer (AMS), measures cosmic-ray particles in space. After detecting billions of these particles over a year and a half, the experiment recorded a signal that may be the result of dark matter, the hidden substance that makes up more than 80 percent of all matter in the universe.

AMS found about 400,000 positrons, the antimatter partner particles of electrons. The energies of these positrons suggest they might have been created when particles of dark matter collided and destroyed each other.

BionicOpter dragonfly robot


FESTO demonstrates Bionicopter

The robot dragonfly measures 44 cm (17.3-inches) long from tip to tail. Its sturdy and lightweight housing and mechanical system are fashioned from aluminum, polyamide (sintered) and terpolymer (deep-drawn ABS), contributing to its overall weight of just 175 g.

The beast is controlled by an ARM microcontroller, which calculates all of the parameters relating to mechanical adjustment based on input from the onboard inertia, acceleration and position sensors, together with pilot input, then translates these into movement by actuating the servo motors.

Nick D’Aloisio, 17, youngest internet millionaire-summly creator.

Yahoo bought an app for a multi million deal with a 17yr old kid who dreamed of an app on his bed-summly.

The terms of purchase have not been declared,but it is thouht that yahoo will pay between £20 million and £40 million for summly app.

the idea behind summly is to make it easier for 15-year old nick to read online articles easier when he was preparing for mock tests.The app breaks any internet article in to a summary of not more than 350 to 400 words.

'When i founded summly at 15, i would never have never being in such a position suddenly',he added going on to thanking his investors,his family,friends,his school and users of the app.

Under the terms of summly deal,nick will work at yahoo at their soho offices while studying for three A levels at king's college school in the evening.

Screen-smash??? No more with apple new patent 

Apple has filed a U.S. patent application for a protective mechanism that would "selectively alter a center of mass" of an electronic device.
Other claims suggest that the mechanism would alter the angular momentum of the device in free-fall. The patent further describes how electronic devices could deploy "air foils" to alter the aerodynamics and speed of decent by producing lift.

In an attempt to slow impact, or even prevent it entirely, the patent describes possible "gripping members" that would turn power cords or headphone connectors into makeshift grappling hooks, perhaps with teeth or hooks that bind into the device in the event of dropping it.

This patent really brings out various possible methods to prevent damage(smashed-screen) to the device which many people are worried about.

         It has on power button and volume up and volume down.And all other things are done through swipe and touch.Top edge system setting,left edge apps,right edge takes u back and bottom edge give u tool bar when you are in an app.
         The most beautiful thing is that you can install it in a phone as if you can install ubuntu in a desktop.
Also in other mobiles depending on the manufacturer depends on whether it has the ability to unlock the mobile or not.And expecting the devices can ship on last quarter of 2013 or first quarter of 2014".

NTT DOCOMO gears up to 5G data

NTT DoCoMo confirms successful 10Gbps wireless test

No, it’s not the world’s most conspicuous surveillance van — it’s
1 of the first actions toward 5G data. NTT DoCoMo has just confirmed that the gear-laden automobile above effectively conducted a 10Gbps wireless test in Ishigaki this December with the aid of the Tokyo Institute of Technologies. The dry run relied on frequencies and bandwidth effectively outdoors of usual cellular service, in the 11GHz band with 400MHz of spectrum, but proved that it was attainable to blow past the speeds of LTE and LTE-Advanced while moving outdoors the test utilized 24 antennas to maintain the hyperlink. DoCoMo eventually hopes for equivalent speed in frequencies over 5GHz, and it really is not shy about hoping the technology will define mobile communication as it improves. Although we’re not expecting this type of breakneck efficiency in a telephone for years, it is good to know that 4G is not necessarily the finish of the line.

LoFi-Fisheye Digicam shoots HD video, fits in the palm of your hand

  Pressing and holding the power button on the top brings the camera to life and it goes straight into HD video mode.

After a fruitless search for a teeny key-chain digital camera with a fish-eye lens out front, Greg Dash decided to design and build his own. The subsequent prototype was just intended for his own use, but when more and more folks asked him where they could buy one when they spotted him snapping photos, he hatched a crowdfunding plan to bring his LoFi-Fisheye Digicam to market. 

Thankfully, monster lenses like the one introduced by Nikon at the 1970 Photokina show are something of a rarity. Today's smaller varieties, however, are still a rather expensive addition to a photographer's toolkit, and certainly something that was out of Dash's price range. Of course, he could have opted to add something like a Turtle Jacket Penta Eye lens wheel to his iPhone, or post-processed images using software or apps for a digitally-manipulated snap, but didn't feel that such things were quite what he was looking for.

"Although apps give the appearance of a fisheye-effect, they're unable to replicate the true 170-degree image due to the limitations in the hardware," he told us. "Snap-on attachments can suffer from low quality construction, can fall off, can break and can be device specific."

He wanted an easy-to-use, pocket-friendly digital camera that had a quality fish-eye lens, was able to record in HD, and included features like time-lapse – criteria that were satisfied in his (roughly) Chobi Cam-sized LoFi-Fisheye Digicam.

Demi Lovato, New Album: Singer Talks 'Dope' Collaboration

Demi Lovato's fans got served with a "Heart Attack" when she teased her new single last week. While we have to wait until March 4 for the track to drop, we can debate who her mystery collaborator is!

"I've been working with incredible producers," Demi told MTV News. "There's so many I don't even know who to name, but I do have a collaboration with somebody. I don't know if I'm allowed to tell, but it'll be dope."

Ahhh, suspense! The "Give Your Heart a Break" singer also hinted at what fans can expect from the project.

"Well, not only does the album say a lot about where I am in life right now, [but] like, there's follow-up songs," she teased. "I feel like one is a follow-up song to 'Skyscraper.' I feel like other ones talk about some issues I haven't spoken about. I'm continuing to let out a lot of things therapeutically on my music and I'm very thankful I have the opportunity to do that."

A big motivation Demi has in finishing the album? Her reality show judging stint!

"Well, I definitely want to back up why I was a mentor on 'The X Factor,'' Demi said. "I don't want to go on my album and kind of make people think, 'Well what does she know about judging?' And I definitely think I'm going to accomplish hopefully a positive response. I just always thought I need to give it my all 'cause that's what my contestants were doing."

The Canadian Space Agency's NEOSSat will be world’s first space telescope for detecting and tracking asteroids and satellites.

In the wake of the meteor blast over Russia and the close quarter fly by of asteroid 2012 DA14last week, many people's thoughts have turned to potential dangers from above. It is timely then that the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) will next week launch NEOSS (Near-Earth Object Surveillance Satellite), the world’s first space telescope for detecting and tracking asteroids, satellites and space debris.


" />

 A demonstration of the CSA’s first MMMB (Multi-Mission Microsatellite Bus) spacecraft, the suitcase-sized NEOSSat weighs only 80 kilograms (176 lb) and will orbit the Earth at an altitude of approximately 800 kilometers (500 mi) every 100 minutes. Its key technology is derived from CSA’s MOST (Microvariability and Oscillation of Stars) satellite and, like MOST, it uses a 15-cm (5.9-in) aperture Maksutov telescope that can detect objects down to the 20th magnitude in brightness as its primary instrument.

Schematic of NEOSSat 

NEOSSat has two missions. The first is NESS (Near Earth Space Surveillance), which is intended to detect and track asteroids, such as the one that made a close quarter fly by of Earth last week. Because of its high orbit, NEOSSat isn’t restricted by the day/night cycle as telescopes on Earth are and can operate 24/7. It will scan space from 45º to 55º from the Sun and 40º above and below the Earth’s orbit. The hundreds of images produced will be sent to the University of Calgary's NEOSSat science operations center for analysis.

The second part of its mission will be as part of the Defence Research and Development Canada's (DRDC's) High Earth Orbit Surveillance System (HEOSS), which aims to reduce collisions by monitoring orbiting space objects – both satellites and "space junk." NEOSSat will be the first microsatellite used for this purpose and will compare observed satellites and debris to existing orbital catalogs and provide updates. This will be used both to help control space debris and for military applications.

While the launch is timely given the events of last week, it would not have detected the meteor that exploded over Russia even if it was already in orbit. This is because NEOSSat is designed to look for asteroids larger than 500 m (1,640 ft), while last week's meteor is estimated to have only measured 17 m (55.7 ft) across. However, NEOSSat will overcome the problem of glare faced by earthbound observatories if a larger asteroid decided to arrive unannounced during the day from the direction of the Sun as the Russian meteor did.

NEOSSat will be launched on February 25, 2013 at the Satish Dhawan Space Center, India, atop an Indian Space Research Organisation PLSV-C20 rocket.

Sony Xperia Z review

 Focussed on mobile, gaming and imaging




The Xperia Z is one of the main pillars of Sony's new plan to focus on mobile, gaming and imaging. In fact, it's a device that addresses all three of those areas, while also pressing reset on Sony's smartphone past. The handset ushers in a new design language, one Sony's decided to bring to its new tablet too. It's called omnibalance design, but it's best described as a combination of 90-degree angles, even weight distribution and flat glossy sides.

Once you get to look at the phone in person, all Xperias that came before it pale in comparison. The phone feels solid and you'd be hard-pressed to describe any part of it as plastic. Between those mirrored sides, you'll find Sony's first 1080p phone display, measuring five inches and benefiting from the company's new Bravia Mobile Engine 2. Improvements to the Xperia line aren't merely cosmetic, though: Sony's added a 13-megapixel camera (featuring the HDR video-capable Exmor RS sensor) and a 1.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro -- Qualcomm's most potent mobile processor currently available.

Meanwhile, those precious electronics are protected by a shell that's water- (IPX5/7) and dust-resistant (IP5X). It's rare to see such protection on a phone that's not being marketed as a rugged device, let alone a company's new flagship. Sony is looking to succeed in mobile and, with just a week away from the world's premier phone tradeshow, has the company created something that can stand up against current Android champions and win?
