Nokia to offer free navigation in 74 countries

Nokia will follow Google, offering free maps on its cellphones, in a move to boost handset sales but one that will hit other satnav players, the 'San Francisco Chronicle' reported on Thursday, citing the Finnish company.

"Nokia used to charge for navigation packages that included turn-by-turn directions. That all goes away now. Now you can get turn-by-turn directions covering 74 countries in 46 languages," the report said.

A spokesman for Nokia declined to comment. The firm is scheduled to hold news conferences related to its services offering around the world from 0930 GMT onwards.

In 2008 Nokia bought for $8.1 billion digital mapping firm Navteq -- a rival to navigation specialist TomTom's Tele Atlas unit.

Analysts said free navigation could enable Nokia to support its flagging position in the global smartphone market. It still sells more smartphones than any of its rivals, but it has lost ground to Apple and RIM.

Full-body scanners cleared, trials in Delhi soon

The government today decided to introduce full-body scanners at airports across the country in a phased manner to secure them against potential terrorist attacks. The US and Israel are already using full-body scanners at some of their airports, and more such scanners are on their way to airports in the US, England, Japan and the EU.

The proposal, cleared by a technical specification committee under the Ministry of Civil Aviation and comprising representatives from all security agencies, comes in the backdrop of a recent attempt by a Nigerian man to blow up a Detroit-bound aircraft using explosives attached to his body. Security checks at Lagos or Amsterdam's Schiphol airport, where the would-be bomber boarded planes, failed to detect the explosives.

The scanners have been at the centre of privacy and health concerns for several years across the world. The panel has debated all these issues at length, a government official told The Indian Express.

Lumix Cameras Released by Panasonic

The DMC-FS15 is the most capable model release by Panasonic yesterday. The camera comes with a 12.1 Megapixel sensor and a wide-angle 29mm Leica DC lens with 5x optical zoom, being the equivalent of 29-145mm on a regular film camera).

Even though it is oriented to get users take photos easy, the FS15 model comes with several appealing features, even for the more experience individuals. As an example, the intelligent auto mode, or iA, analyses the image ready to be taken and automatically adjusts the most appropriate settings.

Basically, with the iA mode, the user only has to seize the moment and press the shutter, as anything ranging from autofocus, automatic red-eye reduction, face detection, image stabilizer and ISO control will do all the necessary work in order to get the most out of the picture.

Another feature of the camera is the new face detection technology, which is actually a new algorithm of the autofocus feature. This means that that the focus is maintained on the subject, even if he moves after the user presses the capture button. This feature will certainly be appreciated in sport scenarios.

Even though the camera is very compact, it still sports a generous 2.7-inch screen. Moreover, the big display features a light sensor that automatically adjusts the brightness level between eleven values. Another sought-after feature is the start-up time, which takes just over one second, much to the delight of the spontaneous user.

There is also the Intelligent Scene Selector, which chooses the best mode between Macro, Portrait, Scenery, Night Portrait, and Night Scenery. The lock feature of the auto focus also works in recording mode and, hence, the image will be automatically adjusted depending on the position of the subject of the video.

Along with the $200 FS15 model, Panasonic is also offering the FS7, which essentially shares most of the functionality of the former, but lacking the wide-angle lens and the full Intelligent Auto and the Intelligent Exposure modes. Still, the FS7 will be even more affordable, with a price tag of only $160.

Last, but not the least, the LS85 model off the Lumix line-up is a budget camera that runs on standard AA batteries and sports an 8 Megapixel sensor. The camera will have limited version of iA and Intelligent Exposure, in a similar manner as the FS7.

Sensex opens 1.2% lower on global cues

The BSE Sensex opened 1.2 percent lower on Tuesday on deepening worries about the global economic outlook, with index heavyweight Reliance Industries leading the losses.
At 9:56 a.m., the 30-share BSE index was down 0.96 percent, or 95.66 points, at 9,832.69, with 27 of its stocks losing ground.
The broader 50-share NSE index was down 0.8 percent at 3,010.85.
Asia stock markets retreated for a third straight day as more investors locked in profits on a year-end rally, while U.S. stocks slid on Monday on more evidence a recession will keep eating into corporate profits.
Trading volume is expected to dwindle as the festive season nears, while the settlement of monthly derivatives contracts on Wednesday may keep the market choppy, traders said.
"The markets are looking tired and people expect this quarter to be one of the worst quarters in terms of results," said Neeraj Dewan, director at Quantum Securities. "So at this point of time, you won't see fresh money coming until there is some clarity."
Dewan said rate cut expectations could help banking stocks, with the market betting for a reduction in cash reserve requirement or lower short-term lending rate, or both, after inflation dropped to a nine-month low in early December.
The 30-share BSE index ended down 1.7 percent on Monday at 9,928.35, after seesawing during the first half. The index had risen 4.2 percent last week, taking its gains in December to more than 11 percent, but is down more than 51 percent in 2008.
Japanese markets were closed on Tuesday for a holiday. By 0329 GMT, Hong Kong fell 2.4 percent, Australia shed 1.7 percent, while Seoul's KOSPI was down 3.1 percent.
STOCKS TO WATCH
* Jaiprakash Associates after the board of the construction firm approved acquisition of its unit Jaypee Hotels.
* National Aluminium Co after the firm said it had signed an initial agreement to sell 24 percent stake in its Indonesian project to United Arab Emirates-based RAK Minerals and Metals Investments.
* Parsvnath Developers Ltd after the firm said it is in the process of acquiring land for special economic zones at 11 locations across India.
* Pidilite Industries Ltd after the firm said it raised 750 million rupees by privately placing debentures with banks, insurers and mutual funds.

Student-scientist hopes his cells may light up villages

Young Vishnu Jayaprakash's innovation in the Cowdung Microbial Fuel Cells won him the national prize at the IRIS 2008 National Science fair, the Indian chapter of the world's largest science talent discovery initiative, in Kolkata recently.
Vishnu, who is dreaming of lighting Indian villages using Cowdung Microbial Fuel cells, will now represent the country at the prestigeous ISEF (Intel International Science and Engineering Fair) in the USA, Nevada in May 2009 and all the international science fairs next year.
The 10th standard student of the Chettinad Vidyashram used locally available graphite paper to replace the expensive Toray carbon paper in cells, which made the cells cheaper.
He fabricated Flexible Material for Chambers and indigenous material for electrodes, so that it can be adopted on the walls of the huts to light their lives. The innovation is villager-friendly as it requires no great technical assistance.
With just one innovation, the cost of the cell has come down from Rs 2625 to Rs 180! Vishnu is confident that he would be able to light up the villages with his Cowdung Microbial Fuel Cells. He is now aiming at implementing it in the villages. The cells use cow dung, which undergoes anaerobic respiration to get energy out of glucose, which in turn releases high energy electrons, that causes the electricity.
Vishnu was guided in his project by Dr T S Natarajan, Professor, Department of Physics, IIT Madras. Natarajan praised his ward for his scientific inquisitiveness and said the day is not far off that his youngest research student would make the country proud with more such discoveries. Vishnu, who thanked his parents, school teachers and Dr Natarajan, said he would continue his research work in future. The Chennai lad is the brother of up and coming swimmer Agnishwaran.

Mozilla has recently released its latest browser update, Firefox 3.05, which fixes several security issues and offers a few other changes, including a clearer way to communicate to users about their rights. There are eight security issues, three of them being rated "critical", one rated "high" and one rated "moderate".

The other rated are rated as "low." The security fixes address cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities in SessionStore. This basically reloads Web pages that were open during a previous session. XSS flaws could allow JavaScript privilege escalation and crashes with memory corruption.

Furthermore, the update addresses several stability issues, too, and is now available for the Bengali, Esperanto, Galician, Hindi and Latvian languages. However, the most interesting change in Firefox 3.05 is that it does away with the End User License Agreement (EULA), replacing it with a "Know Your Rights" info bar that gets loaded when the browser is first installed. In order to display it, a user must type "about:rights" into the location bar. Even if this is not an important change for the many Firefox users who never bother to read legalese, the change addresses criticism from the free open source software community.

Mozilla also launched a patch for Firefox 2.0.0.19, but an error caused the company to omit one of the key components. Mozilla will release Firefox 2.0.0.20, which will include the omitted patch, as early as Friday and no later than Monday. Yesterday's update was supposed to be the last for Firefox 2.0, which is slated for retirement. Only the Windows version was affected by this mistake, as the Mac and Linux editions contain all 10 fixes.

Sprint Nextel Launches 3G/4G Wireless Modem For Laptops

Sprint Nextel has just announced that it will start selling dual-mode 3G/4G wireless broadband modems for laptops starting on Sunday. This new device will allow users to access both Sprint's 3G cellular data network and the new 4G WiMax wireless network the company is currently building. The modem is known as Sprint 3G/4G USB Modem U300 and it will use the new 4G Clearwire network with download speeds between 2 Mbps and 4Mbps where that network is available. However, if users can't access the 4G network, the will automatically be able to access the 3G one, which offers average downloads of between 600 Kbps and 1.4 Mbps.

The company launched the 4G WiMax network called Xohm in Baltimore in October, just months before it officially merged its WiMax network with Clearwire's network. The service will be launched in other markets across the country throughout 2009. However, it will take a while for the new 4G network to be built ubiquitously, as there's a large area to cover.

The new wireless modem connects via a standard USB port and costs $149.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate and with a two year subscription to the wireless data service. Customers can find the wireless modem at Sprint's direct business sales force and at most Baltimore-area Sprint stores and select Baltimore-area retailers. It really looks like it's an excellent service, one which offers the best coverage at the best price. In addition, several notebook manufacturers, such as Acer or Toshiba, are including Intel's WiMax/Wi-Fi module in new laptops, so users can access the 4G WiMax network. Prior to FCC's approval of Sprint's merge with Clearwire, the second company told the media it hoped to introduce commercial WiMax services in several US cities during 2009, such as Portland or Las Vegas.

BlackBerry will launch its most advanced push-to-talk smart phone, the Curve 8350i. Recently, BlackBerry lost from its credibility after releasing Storm, a touchscreen phone that had a lot of issues and which users identified of not being worthy of being named a BlackBerry.

Research In Motion seems to have learnt its lesson and has announced the release of Curve 8350i, a push-to-talk smart phone that will appeal to a large spectrum of people. The Curve will appeal to both business users and normal ones and because of its push-to-talk capabilities it can also be used for quickly communicating on construction sites.

BlackBerry promised the Curve 8350i will be very advanced and will be very rich in features and from the look of it, they were not kidding. The new device comes equipped with Wi-Fi for accessing the web, Group Connect, allowing users to communicate simultaneously with other 20 people, GPRS, International Direct Connect, establishing direct links between the United States, Canada, Mexico, Argentina, Brazil, Chile and Peru, Talkgroup, which can connect 200 people at once, provided they are in the same market.

The Curve 8350i is surely rich in options and if these were not enough where do you add that the new phone will also have integrated GPS, an advanced media player for entertainment, 2 megapixel camera, DataViz Documents for editing Microsoft Office documents and a memory that can be uploaded to support up to 16 GB of storage space.

The curve 8350i will have a full Qwerty keyboard and this seems to please the fans of BlackBerry a lot.

Nicknamed 'Koobface' - see what they did there? - the virus can't actually be downloaded on the site itself, but through a link to a bogus Flash player upgrade site.

The makers of the virus have tried to make the link look as legitimate as possible by hiding it among wall posts. The most popular being the following message: 'You look just awesome in this new movie.'

Awesome virus

As a rule of thumb, TechRadar suggests that if you have never starred in a movie, then it is highly unlikely that you would look 'awesome' in one. So, don't let vanity get the better of you.

If you do click on the link, then you will be directed to a fake Adobe Flash Player upgrade site. This is where your computer could get infected and all your personal details, including credit card numbers and passwords cloned. Facebook has released details on how to get rid of the virus on its security pages.

Chris Boyd, a researcher with FaceTime Security Labs, told Reuters news: "People tend to let their guard down. They think you've got to log in with an account, so there is no way that worms and other viruses could infect them."

Opera 10 should benefit from the new Presto 2.2 rendering engine by offering a 30 per cent increase in speed from Opera 9.5.

More features

The new browser will also offer fine-tuned standards support, spell checker, auto-updates and support for HTML formatting in emails.

"My favourite development in this release is the support for new web technologies, which allows people to explore new ways of using the Internet," says Johan Borg, Vice President of Consumer Engineering, Opera Software.

"Our 100/100 Acid3 Test score is only a first indication of the impact these new web technologies will have. We look forward to your feedback on Opera 10."

IBM pushes virtual desktops without Microsoft

IBM is looking to convince companies to run "Microsoft-free" virtual desktops.

Big Blue is partnering with Ubuntu distributor, Canonical, and virtual desktop firm Virtual Bridges to deliver an all-in-one package for companies.

The trio hope to persuade recession-stricken companies of the cost benefits of moving to the "Microsoft-free" virtual environment.

The offering sees employees run an Ubuntu Linux virtual desktop that comes pre-installed with IBM's Symphony office suite, and Lotus Notes and Sametime for email, calendaring and business communications.

The virtual desktops are supported by a Linux-based server, with costs starting from $49 (33) per seat in a 1,000-seat deployment.

Users could access their virtual desktop on dedicated thin clients, or any conventional PC or laptop with a network connection.

Virtual Bridges, which is providing its VERDE virtual desktop software, claimed companies will make huge savings on desktop management and provisioning. "By consolidating these desktop sessions on to centrally-managed servers, users no longer have to self-maintain their desktops or put unnecessary burdens on the help desk," it claimed in a statement.

"This is literally putting your desktops in the data center and allowing access to them securely over the network."

However, it's by no means the first time that Microsoft has faced the threat of virtual desktops. Competitors including Sun and IBM itself have been pushing the thin-client philosophy for more than a decade, without ever seriously denting Microsoft's core operating-system business.

Speed camera tech helps prevent cot deaths



The radar technology that enables speed cameras to save lives on the roads could soon be doing the same in nurseries.

Researchers at the University of Florida have built a prototype baby monitor that uses Doppler radar to detect a sleeping child's breathing and heartbeat.

If the infant's chest stops moving, the crib-mounted monitor detects the problem and sends an alarm to a portable wireless unit kept by the parents.

"It's the same Doppler radar that police use to catch speeders, but in our case, we don't measure constant speed, but rather back-and-forth motion -- sort of like vibration," said Professor Jenshan Lin.

Radiation reassurances

The crib monitor's signals are very low power and not harmful to the baby or parents, Lin added. While a standard mobile phone emits about one watt of power, the Doppler radar emits just one ten-thousandth of a watt of power, he said.

Lin is also pursuing other applications for his technology. He already has a small working prototype search-and-rescue robot equipped with the Doppler system to find living people in structures damaged by earthquakes or explosions.

"Or the military could use it to find enemy soldiers," Lin said, noting that the Doppler radar easily penetrates walls or other structural components.

Lin has also miniaturised the electronics to fit on a fruit fly-sized microchip, enabling the remote monitor to be used in mobile phones. This could turn the phones into portable life detectors useful, for example, for friends and family who wish to keep tabs on elderly relatives living alone, he said.

YouTube embeds get search and widescreen



YouTube may have announced recently that it has switched to widescreen, but the website failed to roll-out this function to embedded videos - until now.

Now, every time you embed a YouTube video to your website, it will pop up in glorious 16:9.

Well, it is glorious if the original video has been shot this way, otherwise unsightly black borders appear - something that has riled many a YouTube user.

YouTube search

A new search function has also been added to embedded video. It's not hard to miss - the semi-transparent search bar sits at the top of an embedded video.

This means you don't have to point your browser to YouTube to search for more videos, but you can do it right there on your own website.

The new layouts are not retrospective, so don't expect the search function to appear on old embeds.

Samsung Tobi Phone

Samsung announces the release of its latest mobile phone, called Samsung Tobi for pre-teens and young adults. Also known as S3030, the handset comes with safety functions such as SOS Call, SOS Message and Fake Call to directly get in touch with family members during an emergency.



Based on a friendly graphical user interface (GUI), it is said to be designed for people who are looking for fun and safety features. It sports affable animated characters in three themes that include Monster theme, Snowman theme and Ocean World theme. For personalization, the Samsung Tobi bundles a changeable backside cover and even allow users to insert their favorite photo or image under the see-through protective sleeve at the back.

Engg student electrocuted; campus tense

Death of an engineering college student due to electrocution had left the campus tense on Tuesday.

Prasanth (18) of first year electrical and electronic engineering at Satyabhama Engineering College
, who stayed in the college hostel, had come in contact with a live wire in the campus and died in the hospital on Monday.

The college authorities asked other hostel students to vacate it for the time-being following the incident and asked them to return once the situation was back to normal, the police said. Around 12.00 pm in the night, the students called the fire service and said that their was fire in the 4th block in the inside the college premises. Though the fire engine rushed to the spot, the students didn't allow the vehicle inside the campus, said the police.

Liberty Wire & Cable Introduces Revolutionary HDMI Over COAX Transmitter/Receiver System

Liberty Wire & Cable introduces a revolutionary new HDMI over COAX Transmitter/Receiver System at INFOCOMM International 2008, the annual convention of the International Communications Industries Association, beginning here later this month. Liberty's HDMI Over COAX System Connects Digital Signal Sources with Analog Displays The HDMI over COAX Transmitter/Receiver is the newest addition to Liberty's extensive DigitaLinx family of products, further enhancing Liberty's position as the industry leader in long-distance HDMI technology.

Devices like Liberty's compact new Transmitter/Receiver system transmit true HDMI signals, not an analog version of a digital signal, over already installed coaxial cable, eliminating the need to run all-new wires throughout a home or office. Liberty's device is easy to install and use, works perfectly with the RGBHV coax cables typically used for VGA or component signals, and provides A/V professionals with unparalleled flexibility. Also significant: Liberty's system is the only HDMI extender designed to function using the HDMI 1.3 standard at a high enough speed (10.2 Gbps) to future-proof new installations.

Tests indicate 1080p performance at distances over 300 feet with common cables. "Liberty's new HDMI over COAX device is ideal for retrofitting existing analog A/V systems," says Kirk Horlbeck, Senior Vice President of Marketing. "With the switch from analog to digital picking up speed, and Blu-Ray and 1080p being adopted as industry standards, it's quickly becoming essential to provide custom professionals with an HDMI 1.3 Category 2 solution utilizing existing cables."

Consisting of a transmitter module and a receiver module, the HDMI Over COAX system uses conventional HDMI cable to connect to sources and displays. Four or five conductor coax cables are used to connect the transmitter to the receiver, and the power plug can work at either end. There are LED status indicators for Display, Source and Power. With its small form-factor and ease of use, it significantly extends the reach of HDMI over existing coax cabling.

"Liberty's HDMI Over COAX will help build our customers businesses and their bottom lines," says John Dace, Vice President of Sales. "HDMI over COAX allows A/V professionals to move their current analog customer base to HDMI signal distribution by executing a Liberty HDMI upgrade.

With a simple on-site visit, they will be able to extend the life-spans of their customers' current analog installations while providing AV professionals with opportunities to upgrade displays, entertainment sources, cables, and switchers.

The second service pack for Microsoft's Vista operating system will be made available to the public tomorrow.

The Redmond giant opened beta testing back in October to a small group of Technology Adoption Program customers, however it has now announced the general public will be offered the beta through Windows Update.

Disk images and stand alone downloads will be added Thursday to both TechNet and MSDN, though Microsoft has warned casual users away from the download.

"The customer preview program is intended for technology enthusiasts, developers, and IT pros who would like to test Service Pack 2 in their environments and with their applications prior to final release," said Microsoft vice president Mike Nash. "For most customers, our best advice would be to wait until the final release prior to installing this service pack."

The service pack updates Vista and Windows Server 2008, bringing a host of performance tweaks, as well as support for Blu-ray and Bluetooth 2.1.

The gadget, which will be priced at 550 euros ($693) before taxes and subsidies, is fitted with a large touch screen and is aimed at trying to help the company regain lost market share.

Nokia's new N97 will go head-to-head with Sony Ericsson's X1, HTC's Touch Pro, Apple's iPhone 3G, T-Mobile's G1 and Research In Motion's BlackBerry Storm, although as analysts have stated, by the time the device is released, other rivals would have surfaced.

Nokia introduced N97 on Tuesday, during the Nokia World 2008 conference in Barcelona, Spain, where participants were offered a peak into the device's features. The latter include slide-out full QWERTY keyboard, the aforementioned 3.5-inch touch screen and a Web browser that supports streaming Flash videos and enables access to several social networking websites. Moreover, N97 brings forth a tool called ,,social location," which by using the integrated A-GPS sensors and electronic compass, is able to update users' social networks or to allow them to share their location through photos or videos.

Furthermore, the gadget is compatible with Nokia's Ovi Internet services, including the Nokia Music Store, Nokia Maps and the N-Gage gaming platform. Nevertheless, the latter have not yet been released in the United States.

Intel dual- socket Nehalem EP benchmarked

Intel's new Nehalem-based Core i7 desktop processor is nippy. And now we can exclusively reveal that the upcoming dual-socket server variant of the Nehalem architecture is so fast it's almost silly.

We know this because we're the first in the world to test it.

Unsurprisingly, our time with this top secret rig was rather limited. But we have managed to squeeze in a single full run of arguably the most important test of processor performance - SPECfp_rate_base2006. Full details of the testing scenario can be found here.

We got our filthy paws on a fully operational dual-socket Nehalem EP platform for a spot of guerrilla benchmarking. Our test system was trimmed out with a pair of 2.8GHz Nehalem EP chips, likely to be sold as Xeon X5560 CPUs when Nehalem EP launches in the first quarter of 2009.

For the record, the system is based on essentially the same Tylersburg chipset as used with the first "Bloomfield" Core i7 desktop chips. For our testing it was configured with 24GB of 1,066MHz DDR3 memory.

The really important figure for Intel here is the base floating point metric. That's a test existing Xeons struggle with largely thanks to the weaknesses of their ancient front side bus and discreet memory controller architecture.

Epic scaling

All of that is gone with Nehalem EP, replaced with the sleek new Quick Path Interconnect and on-die memory controllers. The result is truly epic bandwidth and performance scaling. The big number many will be waiting for is the SPECfp_base_rate base rate. So here it is: 160.

To put that into context, the Intel's current Penryn-based Xeon dual-socket platform fails to hit 90, even running at 3.4GHz. Perhaps even more significantly, AMD's shiny new 45nm Shanghai chips in dual-socket 2.7GHz trim score just 105 points. Even a four-socket Shanghai rig is only good for just under 190. (Competitive data retrieved from www.spec.org on 24 November 2008.)

And remember, Nehalem EP's 160 point score is for a pre-production system running at 2.8GHz. Models humming a 3.2GHz tune will be available when the chip launches early next year. What's more, our testing was carried out on Windows Server 2008.

Run the same benchmark courtesy of the leaner, meaner Linux OS and you'd be looking at an even higher score.

In other words, as good as AMD's new Shanghai chip is, it appears that Nehalem EP will slap it around with a wet fish.

Just to confirm that our eyes did not deceive us, we also gave Nehalem EP a quick going over with the Stars Euler3D benchmark. It's a computational fluid dynamics simulation that majors on floating point performance.

Sure enough, Nehalem EP roasts all comers in this benchmark, too - it's twice as quick as a pair of 2.7GHz Shanghai processors (14.34 seconds to complete five instances versus 30.32 seconds).

Honda Fest to start during new Honda City deliveries

Honda outlets in India will get decked up for a new customer-centric concept called Honda Fest.


Honda Siel Cars has announced that  Honda Fest would open at its dealerships across India, to coincide with the start of deliveries of its recently launched all-new Honda City.

To be held between November 28 and 30, the Honda Fest has been planned as fun-filled weekend for the customers, their families and those who aspire for a Honda car, said a report. The deliveries of the all-new City will begin from this month. The company has already got bookings of nearly 4,000 cars since the launch of the new model.

The festival is part of the Honda fests organized by the company in various countries with the aim of involving customers in important occasions for the company and establish a bond with them. Those who arrive to be part of the Honda Fest will be offered a test drive of the all-new City and other Honda car. Besides, it will feature entertainment activities such as music, dance, painting competitions, puppet shows and quiz competitions.

After its stint in Germany and Japan, the new concept has been brought into India as the new City rolls out. The company plans to organise similar such events as part of other important launches in future.  Honda Siel Cars India has already sold 45,388 units during the January-October period this year. This is as against 52,599 units sold during the corresponding period of last year. The company said that it had sold as many as 24,952 units in April - October 2008 as against 34,578 units in the corresponding period last year. Meanwhile in October, HSCI sold 1,476 units as against 5,287 units sold last year.

With a slowdown affecting the industry in general, there have been factors like liquidity crunch, difficulty in getting finance, high rate of interest and negative sentiment. The company added that Honda Siel's sales performance had been lying low ever since the Honda City ZX was put on the run out phase. It may be recalled that the company had stopped production of the model last month.

Nokia to stop selling phones in Japan

Fortunately for worldwide fans of the Finns, the move applies only to Japan, where Nokia has long been an insignificant supplier of handsets.

Not sustainable

Nokia vice president Timo Ihamuotila explained, "In the current global economic climate, we have concluded that the continuation of our investment in Japan-specific localised products is no longer sustainable."

Hard as it may be to believe for the world's leading phone manufacturer (38 per cent of global sales), Nokia accounts for just 0.3 per cent of mobiles sold in Japan.

High-touch label instead

That's essentially because it doesn't customise models with hardware, such as RFID chips for e-cash applications, seen as necessary in that market. Instead, it merely customises the software to facilitate the Japanese language and some local online services.

Nokia says it will no longer supply phones to NTT DoCoMo and Softbank Mobile, but it seems likely that it will go ahead with its Vertu virtual carrier as planned early next year.

Suzuki Hayabusa and Intruder launched in India

Suzuki Motorcycle India launched two superbikes in new Delhi, India. The Suzuki Hayabusa is an iconic superbike, made famous in India by the improbable stunts in the movie Dhoom. The movie was a horror, the stunts were worse, but India came to know about that Hayabusa as the ultimate motorcycle to own.




The other motorcycle launched is the Suzuki Intruder M1800R, a cruiser motorcycle with a massive 1783 cc V-Twin engine.

The Suzuki Hayabusa (earlier called GSXR1300 in some markets) has a 1340 cc engine churning out 194 bhp that can propel it to 60 MPH in 2.6 seconds! Note that that's miles, not kilometers. That would be 96.5 kilometers per hour in 2.6 seconds! Top speed is an electronically restricted 299 kmph.



We really, really hope the few rich kids and motorcycle enthusiasts who can pony up the money for this motorcycle rides it responsibly.

Almost forgot - the price for both the Hayabusa and the Intruder M1800R motorcycles in India will be Rs 12.5 lakh. Definitely not cheap. That's a bit more than a normal petrol Civic's price in India, by the way. We had reported on the expected launch of the Suzuki Hayabusa in India earlier.



The Suzuki Intruder M1800R is a 1783cc V-twin cruiser, DOHC, 54 degree, liquid-cooled, fuel injected V-twin engine designed for strong throttle response and quick acceleration. Maximum power produced is 125bhp @6,200 rpm and maximum torque: 160Nm @3,200 rpm. The M1800R intruder features a final shaft drive instead of a chain.

Braveheart dies in rescue operation

"Tigers, it is action time," shouted major Sandeep Unikrishnan, on deputation with the National Security Guards (NSG), while entering the dimly lit lobby of Taj Mahal Hotel on Thursday morning. Leading from the front, he had a mission to rescue those trapped inside the hotel.



However, on Friday afternoon, Unikrishnan died a hero's death while fighting terrorists.
Soaked in blood and pierced with bullets, Unikrishnan's body was found around 1.30 pm on the third floor of the hotel. "We lost contact with him around noon which means he fought alone before the terrorists killed him," an NSG official told DNA.

"There was blood all around and they were firing at us from all directions. The burst of gunshots were specifically aimed at the commandos positioned in and around the hotel," the officer said, adding that it took nearly half-an hour to take possession of the body.

"One has to be very careful since the terrorists specifically target members of the combat unit who come to collect the body," the officer said.

He said that even after identifying the body it took sometime to take it out since the terrorists were still firing at them. "We took the body to JJ hospital for embalming," he added. The major's family in Bangalore was informed about the death and his body was flown in a special IAF aircraft on Friday night.

Hi Acumens

Google's Voice Search App For iPhone To Roll Out On Monday?

Google said they were prepared to ring their bells for the new voice search app for the iPhone as early as Friday, Apple's App Store remained silent to the matter all through the week-end, since the feature was nowhere to be found.

Now sources say that iPhone users should look for the application on Monday, when Apple is expected to render the voice search to go live on their App Store. The reason: some communication issues between the two companies.

The search giant submitted the app for review to Apple Incorporated earlier this week, while on Friday, the latter gave the go-ahead to the voice search tool, leaving everybody to believe that it would hit the App Store that same day.

Nevertheless, the update to the Google Mobile App for the iPhone is conspicuously missing in action, raising questions about Apple's procedures with regards to third-party developers and their applications for the company's gadgets.
