Happy to have Good Friday Today



     Josain – My grant Son

Today is Good Friday. This Friday is a Holiday world over for the Christians because it was believed by the people that Jesus Christ  crucified on this day.

As a holiday I had a lot of free time today and I entered into my computer and started browsing. I had this blog started on the year 2010. When my daughter gave birth to her boy child, I became very happy and placed the baby’s name to this blog as ‘Josain’s blog’.Josain is now Six years old.

After few years of running this blog, slowly the blogging activity get retarded and come to a stand-still. When I decided to revamp the blog, I came to know the truth that I forgot the log-in details. Unfortunately, I didn’t keep a record for that. Definitely it was my fault.I used to log-in with some wrong numbers and got tired. I discussed this matter to  some forum platforms even.I made representation to the admin team, but was not fruitful.  I tried to my level best to recover the forgotten data for many days, weeks and months. At last today, this Good Friday, I got the clue to log-in again and make a new post after three years.

So, I am very glad today on this account even though it is a Good Friday being observed by a christian man as a sad day.

Hope that I can continue my blogging endeavor without any problem.

Apple launches iPad 3- All you need to know

Apple Inc today launched a new product under its iPad series, named as iPad 3 however Apple CEO Tim Cook teased the device, which the company calls ‘the new iPad,’ not ‘iPad 3’ at an event in San Francisco on March 7, 2012. The ‘new iPad’ doesn’t come with all features that were being demanded by Apple fans. Nonetheless, it is a great product with a fresh processor, increased screen resolution, new firmware and a set of other advanced features.

 Apple iPad 3
Release date and price
Apple Inc also announced that iPad would be available for sale in less than two weeks after the announcement. Customers in the U.S., U.K, Canada, Germany, France, Japan, Switzerland etc. will get the new iPad on March 16, 2012.
Like iPad 2, the new iPad also comes in three memory variants – 16GB, 32GB and 64GB. It will respectively be priced at $499, $599 and $699 in the U.S. The Wi-Fi+ 4G version is priced at $629, $729 and $829 respectively

Processing and memory

Apple has introduced a new chip called the A5X for the new iPad. The ARM-based chip, as Apple brags, will perform “twice as fast” as NVIDIA’s recent Tegra 3 quad core processor. Apple says the A5X chip eliminates the need for a quad core processor. On the other hand, Tim Cook says the device will sport a NVIDIA chip for graphical performance. It is a bit confusing, indeed; however, we can wait and see what the new iPad will turn out to be.

Coming to the onboard storage, the new iPad just replicates its predecessor. The device is also to get three memory variants; 16, 32 and 64GB. The rumors for a possible 128GB model are without substance.

Display screen

It is here that Apple has done the real magic with the new iPad. The device will sport a stunning Retina Display like the iPhone 4 and 4S with an amazing resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels. It is only 246-ppi in sharpness, however. But it is enough to pack the screen resolution. The screen is the same 9.7-inch panel and Apple has implanted fingerprint-resistant oleophobic coating on its screen.

Camera and connectivity

The new iPad is to come with a 5-megapixel iSight rear camera. You can capture video at 1080p on the gadget. The camera features a 5-element lens, auto focus lock, image stabilization for video and auto face-detection. Moreover, the tablet touts video geo-tagging and tap-to-focus features for enhanced camera experience.

Apple has applied all essential connectivity features on its new iPad. Basically, the third gen iPad is a 4G LTE product, but it works only in North America, where the 4G LTE has really flourished in recent times. Customers in U.K. and other countries will have to curse their slow networks. In the U.S., the device will have separate models for AT&T and Verizon, Apple’s cellular service partners. Global markets will get both CDMA and GSM variants. The tablet also supports HSPA+ (21Mbps), DC-HSDPA (42Mbps) and LTE (73Mbps). Wi-Fi, Personal Hotspot, Bluetooth and USB are there on the respective models.

Form factor, design and others:
Apple hasn’t brought any notable design changes to the new iPad. It looks exactly same to its predecessor with 9.4mm thickness and 652g weight. The Wi-Fi+4G model weighs 662g. In fact, Apple hasn’t attempted to trim down both the weight and size of the 9.7-inch tablet. Moreover, it features the 30 pin dock connector, which was rumored to be not there. Similarly, there are no microSD slot, Thunderbolt and mini Display Port, which were speculated to appear on the new iPad.

What Apple says?
Apple CEO Tim Cook presented its iPad as “the ultimate poster child of the post-PC world” in the event. “The iPad is about post-portable computing. And it’s outstripping the wildest of predictions. The momentum behind iPad has been incredible and has surprised virtually everyone.”

The 2012 version iPad is finally out. Heaps of rumors over the much-anticipated product are settled down. Features of the new iPad have turned to facts. It will now hit stores shortly to let customers test the product and to cherish their new possession.

Issues with Android OS

You might well be aware about the Android, Open Source operating whose Intellectual Property Rights are with Internet giant Google Inc. Since Google plans to see the Android OS platform as the top platform that would give them a command in Smart Phone market. With over half-a-Million apps across Android Market Android has many applications as compared to its rival Apple’s App Store but here are few Cons that are acting as hurdle in Google’s dream to make Android world’s # 1 Smart Phone Operating.

Low Battery Back Up:-
Since Android OS is built on Java, due to the presence of daemon thread that is constantly running in background it badly effects the efficiency of the battery, irrespective of the facilities of Smart Phone applications/services being used or not.
Related:-Boost your Smart Phones battery life.

Very unstable and often hang or crash & Extremely inconsistency in design among apps:-
Although Google Inc constantly launches various new Versions of its Android versions named after tempting deserts,but however the among them very few versions are stable from the point of view of developer so a lot of applications do not support the latest version leading to the agony of the user using the latest version.

Relatively few if any update because the updates come from phone manufacturer not Google:-
Although Google Inc controls Android’s Intellectual Property Rights, but however as far updates for the end user is concerned its all managed by the manufacturer who has the hardware for Android OS.

Replace your CPU with Android phone

Canonical, the company behind Ubuntu the famous Linux flavored operating system, has unveiled an Android version of the operating system. The new version of Ubuntu Android app will enable any multi-core Android smartphones which when connected with a keyboard and monitor to offer a full desktop experience. The demo of this new Operating System will be held at Mobile World Congress which is to be held later this month in Barcelona, Spain.

When the smartphone with Ubuntu is connected to a computer, a full Ubuntu desktop will appear on the display of the desktop. It’s exactly the same desktop that you will find on any computer running Ubuntu OS, and includes certified applications, from office productivity to photography, video and music.

Replace your CPU with Android phone

With the app, you can also share data and services between the Ubuntu and Android environments. So, Android applications such as contacts, telephony and SMS/MMS messaging are accessible from the Ubuntu interface. All data created using the Ubuntu OS on desktop can be accessed through the smartphone at any time, docked or not thus providing with the mobility.While Ubuntu is marketing it as an enterprise tool to reduce cost and management for the IT teams, which will need to manage only the phone while offering desktop experience as well. It will be of equal importance to home users in reducing the cost of computing.

Ubuntu offers a range of native applications and excellent support for web browsers like Chrome and Firefox. The desktop can also include Windows applications, using thin client and desktop virtualisation tools.With a range of dual core and quad core Android phones in the market, it makes perfect sense as it will unlock the full potential of the power of these phones.What is also great is that fact that Intel and Nvidia are working on brining affordable dual core Android handsets to the market. This will make it even more lucrative for users to use this Ubuntu and Android combination.

Hardware requirements for installing Ubuntu on Android includes support for HDMI and USB, which is a standard features in high-end handsets planned for 2012.
Motorola has done a similar thing with its lapdock, however it is a dedicated hardware that one needs to buy.
On the contrary with Ubuntu Android, the total investment apart from the phone will be in the range of Rs 5,000 to Rs 10,000 depending on the computer that one prefers.

Facts about FaceBook IPO Part II

Facts about FaceBook IPO Part I
That’s a lot of corn:-Facebook has been busy making money in recent years, as well as growing fast. In 2009, the company said it brought in $777 million in revenue. That figure grew to $1.974 billion in 2010, and then almost doubled in 2011 when the company had $3.71 billion in revenue and $1 billion in profit.

The S-1 filing also shows that digital cows, crops, and mafia hit jobs are a big source of revenue for the company; social game maker Zynga was responsible for about 12 percent of Facebook’s revenue in 2011.

Zuckerberg went to China but Facebook didn’t:-Facebook isn’t sure it can move into China and is concerned about any restrictions the Chinese government might put on the company. This is a lesson Facebook likely learned from Google’s problems with Chinese authorities in early 2010 that resulted in the search giant shutting down its “.cn” Chinese-language search engine. “We continue to evaluate entering China. However, this market has substantial legal and regulatory complexities that have prevented our entry into China to date,” Facebook said in its SEC filing.

Later in the document the company added, “We do not know if we will be able to find an approach to managing content and information that will be acceptable to us and to the Chinese government.”

Zuckerberg is king :-
Surprising Facts Learned from IPO PaperworkNot only will Zuckerberg serve as chairman and CEO, he will also be granted the power to name his successor if he still controls the company when he dies. “In the event that Mr. Zuckerberg controls our company at the time of his death,” Facebook’s S-1 filing says. “Control may be transferred to a person or entity that he designates as his successor.” This clause has struck some analysts as unusual, according to several reports including The New York Post and Bloomberg Businessweek, but the clause also makes it clear that Zuckerberg is Facebook’s ruling power.
