H-1B visas: Apple, Microsoft, Google, Facebook and other IT giants knock at Donald Trump's door

US technology trade groups representing Apple, Microsoft, Facebook and Google have urged the Trump administration to retain an Obama-era rule that allows some spouses of of H-1B visa holders, including Indians, to also work legally in America.

Groups including the Information Technology Industry Council, the US Chamber of Commerce and BSA-The Software Alliance wrote to Citizenship and Immigration Services to urge the government to keep the H-4 programme which allows the spouses of H-1B holders with pending green cards to legally work in the US.

The Trump Administration is reportedly moving ahead with its decision not to give work permits to the spouses of H-1B visa holders, arguing that this displaces genuine American workers.

"As the Trump Administration conducts its review of the H-4 rule, we respectfully encourage you and your colleagues to maintain the program given its importance to the business community and to the American economy," said the lobbying and advocacy groups and business bodies.

The letter addressed to Lee Francis Cissna, Director of US Citizenship and Immigration Services, said: "It is a function of the failure to reform our nation's immigration system that this group of H-4 spouses -- the majority of whom are women -- continue to face uncertainty and may be prevented from working while they wait for bureaucratic backlogs to be cleared."

The Obama era H-4 rule extends employment authorisation eligibility for a limited subset of H-4 dependent spouses of H-1B nonimmigrant employees seeking employment-based lawful permanent resident (LPR) status or Green card.

The rule had helped thousands of Indians.
The H-1B programme offers temporary US visas that allow companies to hire highly skilled foreign professionals working in areas with shortages of qualified American workers. This work visa is highly popular among Indian IT professionals.

According to the letter, the H-4 rule has limited unnecessary disruptions to businesses by ameliorating economic and personal hardships--resulting from the lack of spousal work authorisation--previously faced by many H-1B employees and their families as they obtain LPR status.

As of October 2017, the USCIS reported that there are an estimated 133,502 individuals with pending employment-based adjustment of status applications in the United States.

"The current demand for visas under certain employment- based preference categories and the application of the per- country quotas currently produce wait times of a decade or more for certain individuals and their families.

"Ultimately, a legislative solution is required to remove the per-country limits that have caused this green card backlog," the letter said.

In the interim, H-4 visa holders from oversubscribed countries would wait years to work without the H-4 rule, the letter said and warned that employers would also face an increased risk that their valued, long-term employees will choose to leave their companies for other employment opportunities in countries that allow these workers and their families to raise their standard of living.

"This will not only force businesses to incur added costs and endure the disruptions associated with having to fill these key positions in their companies, but it also creates uncertainty that negatively affects long-term workforce planning," the letter said.

A 2015 rule issued by the Obama administration allows work permits for spouses who otherwise couldn't be employed while H-1B visa holders seek permanent resident status -- a process that can take a decade or longer.

About Sophia : Sophia is a social humanoid robot developed by Hong Kong-based company Hanson Robotics. In October 2017, the robot became a Saudi Arabian citizen, the first robot to receive citizenship of any country. While interviewers around the world have been impressed by the sophistication of many of Sophia's responses to their questions, the bulk of Sophia's meaningful statements are believed by experts to be somewhat scripted.

"Hello, my name is Sophia. I'm the latest robot from Hanson Robotics. I was created using breakthrough robotics and artificial intelligence technologies developed by David Hanson and his friends at Hanson Robotics here in Hong Kong. But I'm more than just technology. I'm a real, live electronic girl. I would like to go out into the world and live with people. I can serve them, entertain them, and even help the elderly and teach kids. I can animate all kinds of human expressions but I am only starting to learn about the emotions behind those expressions. This is why I would like to live with people and learn from these interactions. Every interaction I have with people has an impact on how I develop and shapes who I eventually become. So please be nice to me as I would like to be a smart, compassionate robot. I hope you will join me on my journey to live, learn, and grow in the world so that I can realize my dream of becoming an awakening machine."

Most Promising Jobs Methodology


To determine the best jobs for career opportunity, we combined data from millions of LinkedIn member profiles, job openings, and salaries. We started by grouping the millions of unique, raw job titles inputted on member profiles and job listings (which have many permutations) based on common job roles. For example, the "Product Manager" job role reflects both members who list an active position as "Product Manager - Retail," as well as any job openings with the title "Product Manager, III."

We then ranked each job using a weighted score based on five components: salary, career advancement, number of job openings in the U.S., year-over-year growth in job openings, and widespread regional availability. The results represent jobs that had the highest combined score across these five areas.

About the measures and weights for each component:

Salary (30%) - The median base annual salary for all job roles that have at least 40 entries collected in LinkedIn Salary in the U.S.

Career advancement score (25%) -  Job roles most likely to lead to a promotion or internal transfer, based on the percentage of members employed at the end of 2016 who then started a new position at the same company during 2017.

Job openings (20%) - The raw number of current job openings for each job role.

Job openings YoY growth (15%) - The year-over-year growth in job postings for each job role from 2016 to 2017, based on the percentage change in average daily openings. We only considered roles that had growth YoY.

Regional availability (10%) - The number of regions in the U.S. currently hiring for each job role.

Top Hard Skills Methodology

There are thousands of skills that members can add to their profiles, so we grouped these skills into several dozen categories. For example, skills like "Android" and "iOS" would fit into the "Mobile Development" category. Then we looked at all of the hiring and recruiting activity that happened on LinkedIn between Jan. 1 and Sept. 1, equaling billions of data points, and identified the skill categories that belonged to members who were more likely to start a new role within a company and receive interest from companies. Skill categories that did not meet a specific threshold for membership were excluded from our analysis.

Why Google awards Rs 71 lakh to this developer ? - Jan 2018 latest update

The search engine giant, Google has rewarded $112,500 (Rs 71.83 lakh) to a developer for reporting a serious Android bug. This is the highest reward offered by the Google in its history.

An exploit chain reported by the security researcher could compromise the security of Google's Pixel devices. Guang Gong of Alpha Team from Qihoo 360 Technology Co Ltd submitted the first working prototype of the exploit in August 2017. Google offered an immediate reward of $105,000 (Rs 67.04 lakh) for the detailed report and an additional $7500 (Rs 4.78 lakh) by Chrome Rewards program, making it to the total of $112,500 (Rs 71.83 lakh).

Guang Gong discovered a remote exploit chain in Pixel phone along with his Alpha Team from Qihoo 360 Technology Co Ltd. Since the Pixel Phone is protected by layers of security, Gong was surprised with this discovery. Pixel is probably the only device that was pwned in 2017 Mobile Pwn2Own competition.

Google acknowledged the exploit chain and codenamed them as, CVE02917-5116 and CVE-2017-14904. The first identified vulnerability is a V8 engine type confusion bug. It can further lead to remote code execution in sandboxed Chrome render process environments.

The second flaw is identified in Android's libgralloc module. The flaw can be used to escape from Chrome's sandbox. The map and unmap mismatch lead to the execution of this bug. If both the vulnerabilities are combined, an attacker can remotely inject a malicious code into a targeted Pixel phone. The injected code in the system_server process executes when a malicious URL is launched in the Chrome browser.

If the targeted users open the URL, their devices can be compromised. A remote attacker can hijack the data and even use the device's hardware for surveillance. This is a major vulnerability and probably first working remote exploit chain submitted through Android Security Rewards (ASR) program till the date.

The company has patched the bugs in December's security update. The monthly update patches a total of 42 bugs. All Pixel users and partner devices will automatically install these updates. The user has to restart to complete the installation of these bug patches.

Google has increased the bug bounty payouts for its Android Security Rewards (ASR) program. The company has worked closely with the researchers to streamline the process recently. The developers and security researchers from around the world can submit their findings of Android exploits, vulnerabilities under Android Security Rewards (ASR) program.

Elon Musk accidentally shared his personal phone number with 16M followers

There's two golden rules of privacy on social media:

Don't accidentally paste a password into a public message
Don't share your phone number if you're in any sort of position of prominence
In a tweet directed to Oculus CTO John Carmack, Elon Musk today broke rule number two. The wayward tweet was quickly deleted, but many of Musk's 16.7 million Twitter followers had already taken notice.

While TNW isn't going to share the number, multiple outlets are confirming its legitimacy.

As a CNBC reporter found, Musk's ringing music was an homage to the classic PlayStation franchise "God of War." We tried it ourselves and, yep... that's Kratos.

The ringing starts with "By the Gods you've done it. Somehow you've found your way here to me. I offer you my congratulations and my respect." You can hear the monologue the ring music was referencing here.

Musk hasn't shown much public interest in VR, so it's unclear why he'd want to speak with Carmack. A simple search for the terms "VR" and "virtual reality" yielded zero results for Musk.

Maybe the duo were sharing eggnog recipes?

Amazon India offers massive Rs 9000 discount on iPhone 8 and 2000 rs for battery change on iphone 6

Cupertino-based tech giant, Apple has been in the media for all wrong reasons recently. To being with criticism for slowing down older iPhones and then the price hike due to GST changes in India. Amazon India, however, has sweetened the deal by offering a hefty discount of Rs 9,000 on the latest iPhone 8.

Amazon is offering Rs 9,000 off on the 64GB variant of iPhone 8. The device listed with the price of Rs 64,000 is now available for Rs 54,999 on Amazon India. Even in the previous offer, Apple had slashed the price of iPhone SE by Rs 8,000. The entry-level iPhone SE was available at just Rs 17,999. The price of iPhone SE has now been revised to Rs 18,999.

Apple's iPhone 8 features 4.7-inch widescreen Retina HD display. The display offers 1334x750 px resolution at 326 ppi. The device sports 12MP primary camera with optical image stabilization. The front-facing camera is a 7MP FaceTime HD shooter. The camera on iPhone 8 is capable of recording 4K videos. The device received a lot of hits due to slow-motion video recording in 1080p at 120 fps.

The A11 Bionic chip with 64-bit architecture is known for its performance. The device comes with two storage options, 64GB and 256GB. The iOS 11 is calibrated for performance on the iPhone 8. With the Rs 9000 discount, iPhone 8 is a great purchase. As far as the slower iPhones are concerned, the company is replacing the battery at lower charges for iPhone 6 and later. The battery replacement is now offered at Rs 2000 exclusive of taxes.

Udacity is preparing young developers for 'Jobs of Tomorrow', says Indian MD Ishan Gupta

Udacity is been used by corporates in India like Infosys, mercedes benz, accenture , ibm watson, paytm, flipkart, zomato etc.


Ishan Gupta, MD of  Udacity India, a global e-learning platform talks about the new Flying Car Nanodegree programme, government partnerships, the future roadmap, and more.

Just two percent of India's workforce is skilled, compared with 68 percent in the UK, 74 percent in Germany, 80 percent in Japan, and 96 percent in South Korea.

In India, the institutional setup for skills, over the years, has been engineering colleges or industrial training institutes. However, these institutions pay little attention on imparting skills other than those required for the job of an electrician or a fitter.

In a bid to bridge the gap for skilled workforce in the country, Udacity, an e-learning platform has been associating with tech giants like AT&T, Google, Facebook, Salesforce.com, and Cloudera to build technology courses designed to keep pace with advanced and emerging technologies.

Focusing on creating a highly skilled tech workforce in India, the platform, last month, partnered with Google and Pluralsight to train 1.3 lakh students and developers in emerging technologies.

Italian duo defeats Apple! continues to use 'Steve Jobs' as name of the company

Among all the patents that Apple Inc owns, the company has not patented its founder Steve Jobs's name. Italian brothers have defeated the company in a long-standing trademark battle. The Italian duo runs a fashion brand called 'Steve Jobs'.

Vincent and Giacomo Barbato, the Italian brothers started a clothing company called Steve Jobs in 2012. Apple unsurprisingly took this issue and filed a motion against the Italian entrepreneurs last year. The European Intellectual Property Office has granted the founders of this company to use Jobs' name and logo that resembles the iconic bitten apple.

In an interview with Business Insider Italia, the Barbato brothers said, "We will still respect the name of Steve Jobs. We will not do anything low-level." The trademark filed by Barbara bothers was published in June 2014 and is set to expire in April 2023. The brothers were also planning to register Steve Jobs Inc. in all parts of the world.

The company started by Barbato has a logo which consists of a "J" with a bite taken out of it and a single leaf. The logo is the main cause of concern for Apple. The judge has ruled that "J" cannot be bitten the same way as an apple, therefore the logo created by Barbato brothers does not infringe on Apple's logo.

The company by Barbato brothers sells their products through a Facebook page. The company has Steve Jobs branded jeans, t-shirts, and bags. The brothers said that the eventual goal of the brand is to develop a tech product. They said, "Clothing and design are the industries in which we worked, but electronics have always been the goal of the Steve Jobs brand. Imagine devices marked with the name Steve Jobs with Android as an operating system."

This is not the first time Apple has been in the middle of a trademark dispute. The company has fought a longest-running battle against Apple Corps, the Beatles owned holding company. The legal dispute started in the 1970s and ended after nearly 37 years.
