"Local water cans are priced at around Rs 45 while brands sell their cans at around Rs 80 or Rs 85. We have priced the same capacity water cans at Rs 55 – making it accessible to everyone.

20% TCS on foreign remittances from October 1: Know how it will impact your forex payments, international trips, and education

New TCS rates could add a significant tax burden on you if you decide to spend more than the specified threshold. The increased rates of 20 per cent TCS will not be applicable for remittances up to Rs 7 lakh in a financial year.

The new rates of tax collected at source (TCS) under the Liberalised Remittance Scheme (LRS) of the Reserve Bank of India will be applicable from October 1, 2023. You will now have to pay a higher TCS amount in case you spend more than a specified amount during a financial year with regard to international trips, going abroad for higher studies or making a credit card payment for a purchase from a foreign country, among others.

As on my blog post ( www.sudhakar.asia )

Apple had always kept at his promised. Icloud+ 6TB is online.

Today around 10:50 pm IST Under manage storage page in iPhone and iMac, could see iCloud+ 6TB storage.

iCloud+ 2TB at 749 rs monthly
iCloud+ 6TB at 2999 rs monthly even though I have guessed at 2499 but its 2999
iCloud+ 12TB at 5900 rs monthly even thought it could be around 4899 but its 5900

Once upgraded, I have added back my spouse from my friend's family plan to my family group. So total usage is 3.4 TB of 6.2 TB available. Thanks to my friend Vel Murugan from sharing his iCloud 2 TB storage for us for last 2 years now from covid.

Now Me and My Spouse could manager my Varsh kids parenting app using screen time together. Which am waiting for more than 2 years now.

Thank you Apple and iCloud team for listening to us. After 12 years of launch 6TB and 12TB is breath taking plans which leads apple the only eco system in the world to have one point solution for Smart Mobile Devices. All at one place and don't look out for storage anymore.

Apple Event 2023 - September 12 2023 ( as wrote on my website www.sudhakar.asia )

https://www.apple.com/apple-events/event-stream/ - live streaming was apple event for 90 minutes and 30 million people have visited in YouTube too https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZiP1l7jlIIA

Entire Apple Fans had a their biggest dream come true moment when iCloud+ super storage plans of 6TB and 12TB accounted in this beautiful Apple 2023 event. Starting 18th September 2023 every apple users could take advantage of iCloud+ 6tb storage plans at 2499rs a month approximately or even iCloud+ 12tb storage plans at 4899rs a month approximately instead of their current usage of iCloud+ 2tb storage at 749rs monthly and an additional 200gb from apple one plans in India. So far the maximum Icloud+ storage plans with apple one is 2.2tb till 13th September 2023 in India. Whereas people in US where using maximum of 2tb iCloud+ storage with 2tb apple one storage of totalling 4tb on iCloud storage.

Apple Watch 9 series launched, Priced at 41,900 aluminium to 70,900 steel
Apple Watch Ultra 2 launched, Priced at 84,900 including the wrist band
iphone 15 launched with 6.1 inch, priced at 79,900 rs in India for 128 gb

iCloud+ 6tb storage launched, could be priced at 2,499rs monthly
iCloud+ 12tb storage launched, could be priced at 4,899r s monthly

After Steve Jobs announced iCloud storage with 5gb free on all iPhone and passed away on 05th October 2011 from us. Finally iCloud made possible on 12 October 2011 for all iPhone users using iPhone 4 and launched iPhone 5 in 2011. Since then Apple was stubborn in not upgrading the storage upto 2tb only. As an apple users since 2009 we need to wait till 2023 to enjoy the iCloud+ 6tb or iCloud+ 12tb storage, its a 12+ year long wait for iCloud+ unified storage without looking out for Amazon clouddrive or even google drive etc. Thanks Apple for making this possible and hearing for all Apple Ecosystem lovers for several years now.

Tesla India Motor & Energy Private Ltd has taken office space on lease for five years at Panchshil Business Park, Pune for 11.65 lakhs monthly rental

"We are just trying to figure out the right timing ... I am confident that Tesla will be in India and will do so as soon as humanly possible," reports quoted Musk as saying.

Tesla's India arm was registered in Bengaluru in early 2021. In 2019, Musk had started expressing interest in setting up operations in India but the progress has been slow.

There were reports of the company setting up its first office in India in Mumbai's Lower Parel area as well as opening a retail showroom in the city, but nothing has come of that so far.

I dont support him, but I loved this act which could give 138 crore Indian an promise and an identity on Covid vaccines.

Business , suitcase transfer forget it. People under B, C & D and A will come forward to vaccines and prevent them from Covid instead of say no I will wait and still spread the Mutated variants etc.

Cool Narendra Modi JI , I respect you for the first time of my life in last 6 years if am not. Keep going, but sure after J. Jayalalitha Amma CM which my father taught me as Iron Lady is no more in 2016 so I though 2020 I will take a grab again in political stories but my Thalaivar Rajinikanth came along your drama and finally took a chance to save Tamil Nadu and leave it for Dravidans who rule ruled and will run for million more years with tradition and attachment only within Tamil Nadu dear sir, wait and watch. Thank you Thalaiva Rajini sir I have watched kala for 100 times and petta for 75 times in last 342 of covid lockdown at house with My Kids and writing in there heart about how I loved and admired my Rajinikanth Thalaivar since I was 5 years old at 1990.

Portrait of Vince, 0 to 18 years - "coming of age" time-lapse

From 0 to 18 years in 3:45​ min! Vince Hofmeester from the Netherlands (Utrecht) becomes 18 years old in this film! Subscribe!  We welcome comments in the Community tab!

Dutch artist & filmmaker Frans Hofmeester has filmed his son's portrait every week from the day he was born for 18 years now. Every week the images are shot in the same style. With this footage he creates time-lapses which show the aging of his children within minutes.
We welcome comments in the Community tab! See channel.

Beeldend Kunstenaar Frans Hofmeester (Utrecht) filmt en fotografeert sinds hun geboorte de portretten van zijn kinderen Lotte & Vince. Elke week en altijd op dezelfde wijze met dezelfde achtergrond. Op basis van dit beeldmateriaal monteert hij sinds 2012 time-lapses die in enkele minuten het ouder worden van zijn kinderen laten zien. Niet eerder maakte iemand een soortgelijke film.

He wanted to capture the changes because they were happening so fast so he started filming here every week. He made an incredible "coming of age" time-lapse. You are witness to one of the most mysterious, profound processes of human life - aging, the process of becoming older and growing up - accelerated into 5 minutes.

Memory To better understand the psychological phenomena of memory and time, Hofmeester sought for a concept that could be supported through the mediums of film and photography. The time-lapses confront us with our mortality. In a montage of 4 minutes, the viewer can observe one of the most mysterious and profound processes in human life - to grow up and age. Hofmeester attempts to create and preserve a sense of reality. Thus, the portraits are created without the use of extra make-up or filters - bare, honest, unpolished and uncensored.

So many emotions in just 4 minutes dictates the whole story of a teenager.

Niets is zo fascinerend als het proces van opgroeien en ouder worden van de mens. Tegelijkertijd is het mysterieus en ongrijpbaar. Dát heeft Hofmeester letterlijk zichtbaar gemaakt. Eerdere films zijn ook in veel landen op tv te zien geweest. Frans Hofmeester heeft 23 November 2020 op Vince z'n verjaardag, het volgende hoofdstuk gepubliceerd:
Vince van baby tot 18 jaar.

El cineasta Holandés Frans Hofmeeste, se dio a la tarea de filmar para tu hijo Vince durante su crecimiento en el transcurso de 18 años. El resultado fue este. Pai filma transformação para tu hijo dos 0 aos 18 anos. Dos 0 aos 18 anos em 4 minutos.

ITsavvy was able to extend the life of the entire Chromebooks inventory during a critical time for one major metropolitan school district.
ADDISON, ILL., U.S., January 29, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ -- ITsavvy, one of the fastest growing complete technology solution providers in the U.S., was able to extend the life of the entire Chromebooks inventory during a critical time for one major metropolitan school district.
With 11 schools and about 3,500 students, the client is the 10th largest school district in one of the largest U.S. cities. The district had always relied heavily on its inventory of 4,000 HP and Lenovo Chromebooks—but never more so than when the COVID pandemic struck. Nearly overnight, it became imperative that students have access to all of those Chromebooks for remote learning.

Apple's Next Big Product: The Apple Car

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NypE7-hJNVI

Published on Nov 16, 2020
Every time Californian tech giant Apple puts out a new product, it makes headlines around the world. That was true of its early home computers – the first to use a recognizably modern user interface – and it was even more true of the iPod, which singlehandedly revolutionized the music industry. Not to mention the very smartphone you're probably watching this video on.

But the world's biggest and best-loved technology company isn't done yet. For several years, now Apple engineers have secretly been eyeing up transportation as the next industry ripe for their unique brand of scorched-earth disruption. So today we're asking the question – when will we see the Apple Car?

When Will Apple Release The Apple Car?

Apple M1 Chip launched for Mac Book lineups - Launched Mac Air, Mac Pro Mac mini

MacBook Air
Power. It's in the Air.
Our thinnest, lightest notebook, completely transformed by the Apple M1 chip. CPU speeds up to 3.5x faster. GPU speeds up to 5x faster. Our most advanced Neural Engine for up to 9x faster machine learning. The longest battery life ever in a MacBook Air. And a silent, fanless design. This much power has never been this ready to go.

Watch the event - https://www.apple.com/apple-events/november-2020/

Apple M1 Chip
Small chip. Giant leap.
It's here. Our first chip designed specifically for Mac. Packed with an astonishing 16 billion transistors, the Apple M1 system on a chip (SoC) integrates the CPU, GPU, Neural Engine, I/O, and so much more onto a single tiny chip. With incredible performance, custom technologies, and industry-leading power efficiency,1 M1 is not just a next step for Mac — it's another level entirely. - https://www.apple.com/mac/m1/

CPU
8-core CPU Devours tasks. Sips battery.
M1 has the fastest CPU we've ever made. With that kind of processing speed, MacBook Air can take on new extraordinarily intensive tasks like professional-quality editing and action-packed gaming. But the 8‑core CPU on M1 isn't just up to 3.5x faster than the previous generation2 — it balances high-performance cores with efficiency cores that can still crush everyday jobs while using just a tenth of the power.

CPU

8-core CPU
The 8-core CPU in M1 is the highest-performing CPU we've ever built, by far. It combines four performance cores and four efficiency cores that work together to tackle demanding multithreaded tasks, resulting in a quantum leap in performance at a fraction of the power — and a significant boost to battery life.
Four performance cores
Our high-performance core is the world's fastest CPU core when it comes to low-power silicon3 — and M1 has four of them combining their efforts for a massive boost in performance. Compile in Xcode in significantly less time. Record, mix, and master professional-quality music in Logic Pro with scores of tracks, plug‑ins, and virtual instruments. And create stunning images in Adobe Lightroom with unprecedented speed and responsiveness.
Four efficiency cores
Four efficiency cores deliver outstanding performance for everyday tasks using just a tenth of the power. These e‑cores are the most efficient place to run lightweight tasks, allowing the performance cores to tackle the most demanding workloads.

The magic of machine learning
The machine learning technologies in the M1 chip open up a world of possibilities for Mac apps. Machine learning lets apps build and apply models based on massive amounts of data — to do things like identify friends and family in photos and videos, interpret natural language for dictation, and even analyze audio to recognize laughter, applause, and more. And that data is processed on device to protect your privacy — all at lightning speed.
Neural Engine
The dedicated 16‑core Neural Engine in the M1 chip can execute up to a staggering 11 trillion operations per second, powering workflows you couldn't imagine before — like enabling the djay Pro AI app to isolate instrumentals and vocals of any song in real time.
Optimized for machine learning
The entire M1 chip is engineered for machine learning. The CPU, GPU, and Neural Engine are each designed for different types of machine learning workloads — and the ML performance controller distributes ML tasks to the right places to maximize performance.
ML accelerators
The two dedicated ML accelerators are built for fast matrix multiplication, executing up to one trillion operations per second — perfect for low-latency ML tasks that don't require the massive power of the Neural Engine.

macOS Big Sur
The power of macOS Big Sur on M1.
Developed to unlock the potential of the M1 chip, macOS Big Sur transforms Mac with major performance benefits and so much more. Powerful updates for apps. A beautiful new design. Industry-leading privacy features and best‑in‑class security. It's our most powerful software ever — running on our most advanced hardware yet.

Speed and responsiveness
The M1 chip and macOS Big Sur work together to make the entire system snappier. MacBook Air wakes instantly from sleep. Everyday tasks from flipping through photos to browsing Safari are faster. And your hardest‑working apps all have access to the power they need.
More power.
Wakes instantly.

Biggest collection of apps ever
Run powerful apps built for M1. All your existing apps work thanks to Rosetta 2. And for the first time, you can use your favorite iPhone and iPad apps directly on macOS Big Sur. Altogether you'll have access to the biggest collection of apps ever for Mac.

Unified memory
 
The do‑it‑all notebook gets do‑the‑unbelievable memory. The M1 chip brings up to 16GB of superfast unified memory. This single pool of high‑bandwidth, low‑latency memory allows apps to share data between the CPU, GPU, and Neural Engine efficiently — so everything you do is fast and fluid.

True Tone technology
Good looking. And easy on the eyes. MacBook Air automatically adjusts the white point of your display to the color temperature of your environment for a more natural viewing experience.

Camera and mics
You're live on the Air.
The image signal processor in the M1 chip helps you look your best for every FaceTime call and video conference. Three built‑in microphones make sure what you say gets heard whether you're on a call, dictating a note, or asking Siri about the weather.

FaceTime HD camera
Get clearer, sharper images. See more detail in shadows and highlights. And face detection uses the Neural Engine to adjust white balance and exposure for even more natural‑looking skin tones.

Three-microphone array
Say "Hello" to mics that focus on your voice instead of what's going on around you.

Magic Keyboard
Go ahead. Take the keys.
When a keyboard types like a dream and still does a whole lot more: that's magic. With new preprogrammed shortcuts, useful features are even easier to access. Get help from Siri, switch keyboard languages, respond with the perfect emoji, find documents with Spotlight — there's so much you can do with just a tap. And the backlit keys with ambient light sensor help you type in low‑light settings.

Scissor mechanism
The refined scissor mechanism delivers the best typing experience ever on a Mac notebook.

Force Touch trackpad
Precise control with plenty of room to swipe, pinch, or zoom.

Touch ID
One touch is all it takes to lock or unlock MacBook Air. Use your fingerprint to rent a movie, buy an app, or access things like secure documents or system settings without having to reenter your password. And when you shop online with Apple Pay, Touch ID fills in your shipping and billing information without sharing your card details.

TEDx Talks - 27.6M subscribers
Published on Sep 8, 2020

In 2007, when a 2-year-old boy from Chennai played a perfect drumbeat on his bedroom floor, it became obvious that young Lydian Nadhaswaram was destined for greatness. It began with him accompanying his father and sister on stage for gigs and watching his sister practice the piano at home. It was then that Lydian developed a fascination with the instrument. He would practice alongside his sister, playing Beethoven and Chopin without any sheet music, relying upon on-ear and intuition only.

This now 14-year old has skill unlike any other and is proficient in a variety of instruments, amongst which piano, drums, sitar, and bass guitar are notable. With just 6 years of practice, Lydian's fingers fly over piano keys effortlessly, playing classical melodies at breathtaking speeds.

He has since participated in a variety of national-level competitions, before participating in, and subsequently winning CBS's World's Best in 2019, playing two pianos simultaneously for his winning finale.  He is now a student at KM Music Conservatory, an institution by the A.R Rahman Foundation, and receives international level training in both Western as well as Indian classical.

With appearances on popular American television shows such as Ellen and Good Morning America, paired with unparalleled determination, persistence, and a hunger for learning this young prodigy is well on his way to success.

2021 Mercedes S-Class - Automated Valet Parking (WORLD'S FIRST)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9j4MDcXqsq4

Published on Oct 13, 2020
Stuttgart airport set to welcome fully automated and driverless parking

Apcoa, Bosch, and Mercedes-Benz are working to provide the world's first commercial automated valet parking (AVP) service

    In the future, a command from a smartphone will tell cars where to park in Stuttgart Airport's P6 parking garage.
    The new Mercedes-Benz S-Class is equipped with the technology to enable driverless, fully automated parking (SAE Level 41).
    For AVP, Bosch is using camera-based infrastructure for the first time to detect lanes and obstacles.
    The parking garage operator Apcoa is testing barrier and payment functions as the basis for automated valet parking, enabled by its APCOA FLOW digital mobility platform.

Automated parking to drive down the airport stress: Bosch, Mercedes-Benz, and the parking garage operator Apcoa want to introduce driverless and fully automated parking at Stuttgart airport in the future. To this end, the automated valet parking (AVP) system co-developed by Bosch and Mercedes-Benz is to be made ready for commercial operation. The new Mercedes-Benz S-Class is already geared up to accommodate it as the world's first production vehicle to feature the technology required for future infrastructure-based AVP. As an option, customers can buy the appropriate pre-installation for what the company calls the INTELLIGENT PARK PILOT, which makes the S-Class capable of receiving a smartphone command to drive itself to a reserved parking space. "With the new S-Class, it's not just driving that's a luxury, but parking as well," says Dr. Michael Hafner, head of automated driving at Mercedes-Benz AG. The P6 parking garage at Stuttgart airport will serve as the pilot for the planned commercial automated parking service. Here, the companies will test how the vehicle technology onboard the S-Class interacts with the intelligent Bosch infrastructure and APCOA FLOW, the digital platform provided by the parking garage operator Apcoa. This platform makes the whole parking process ticketless and cashless. "Apcoa, Bosch, Mercedes-Benz, and Stuttgart airport want to work together to make parking fully automatic," says Christoph Hartung, member of the executive management of Connected Mobility Solutions at Bosch. In the airport parking garage, preparations are currently underway to begin piloting the planned automated valet parking service. The aim of this trial with new S-Class vehicles at Stuttgart airport is to ensure that interactions between the vehicle, infrastructure technology, and parking garage operator run smoothly and are optimized for the customer.

World's first Level 4 park function in a production vehicle

In July 2019, Bosch and Mercedes-Benz received the world's first special permit to operate AVP for selected E-Class vehicles without a safety driver in real-life, mixed parking garage traffic at the Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart. Equipped with the appropriate pre-installation for the INTELLIGENT PARK PILOT, the new Mercedes-Benz S-Class is now the first production vehicle to feature AVP technology, which enables it to park without a driver. However, this is conditional on the future availability of parking garages with the appropriate infrastructure, as well as on national legislators giving AVP the green light. This makes the Mercedes-Benz S-Class the world's first vehicle to feature a pre-installation for an SAE Level 4 automated driving function, the second-highest level of automation. "With automated valet parking, Mercedes-Benz is demonstrating that driverless parking will soon be possible," Hafner says.

To facilitate this new one-touch parking function, a spacious drop-off and pick-up area will be set up directly behind the entrance to the P6 parking garage, giving AVP users a convenient place to leave their vehicles. As they comfortably make their way to the terminal and check in, their S-Class will park itself in the basement, guided by information from the infrastructure technology. In other words, users no longer need to worry about maneuvering or having to squeeze out of their cars when the space they have finally found proves to be too narrow. "Automated valet parking really enhances our passengers' comfort and convenience and saves them time, especially when they're in a hurry and just want to drop their car off quickly at the airport", says Walter Schoefer, management spokesman for Flughafen Stuttgart GmbH. For the test phase that is about to start, P6 will initially have two spaces available for self-parking vehicles. More spaces will be added when driverless parking becomes standard as planned in the future and as demand increases.

I made this post 1.5 years back by December 2018.

Ryan's world strength was this - 17 million subscribers and approximately 26 billion views / $22 million or 157 crore revenue via YouTube alone in 2018.

2020 YouTube strictly said no money making for kids channels. So every kids in now becoming adults slowly and everyone are in YouTube during this pandemic from US to Tamil Nadu. Now google cannot use only ad free versions of YouTube since there majority of revenue is from YouTube ads unlike it was Adwords revenue from search results. So they became google to alphabet to focus of ai to ml and several other vertices to solar, wind, power etc.

Ryan's world strength is 26.3M subscribers 41,008,756,994 views in 5 years since - Mar 17, 2015 his parents tried YouTube ( or ) 41 billion views  and 1783 videos as off today 16 August 2020.

Splashdown Recap: Bob & Doug Come Home

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qDjvuBah3K0

Published on Aug 3, 2020
NASA Astronauts Robert Behnken and Douglas Hurley splashed down in the Dragon Endeavor capsule at 2:48 p.m. EDT on Sunday, Aug. 2, off the coast of Pensacola, Florida.

The Crew Dragon hatch was opened at 3:59 p.m., and Behnken and Hurley exited the spacecraft onto the Go Navigator for initial medical checks before returning to shore by helicopter. Once returned to shore, both crew members will immediately board a waiting NASA plane to fly back to Ellington field in Houston.

Hurley and Behnken arrived to the International Space Station May 31 and spent 62 days supporting science and research aboard the orbiting laboratory as part of Expedition 63. 

Demo-2 is SpaceX's final test flight and is providing data on the performance of the Falcon 9 rocket, Crew Dragon spacecraft and ground systems, as well as in-orbit, docking, splashdown, and recovery operations. The data will inform NASA's certification of the SpaceX crew transportation system for regular flights carrying astronauts to and from the space station. SpaceX is readying the hardware for the first rotational mission that will occur following NASA certification, which is expected to take about six weeks.

How to import intermediate and root certificates via MMC or Microsoft Management Console
If you received and installed a certificate in the PEM format on your Windows server, you may need to additionally install intermediate certificates to your machine. If the intermediate certificates are missing on the server, some browsers may show warnings about the certificate being untrusted.

Intermediate certificates can be imported to the Windows machine via Microsoft Management Console (MMC). Please take the following steps to import the intermediate certificates on your machine.

Add certificate snap-in.
Launch MMC. Click on the Start menu >> Run. Type in mmc and press OK.

Click on File and choose the Add/Remove Snap-in option.

Select Certificates from the Available snap-ins list and click the Add button.

Choose Computer account to manage the certificate and click Next.

Select Local Computer and press the Finish button.

Certificates snap-in was selected. Click OK to add it to the console.

Import intermediate/root certificates.
To import an intermediate certificate, right-click on Intermediate Certification Authority >> All Tasks >> Import

To import a root certificate, right-click on Trusted Root Certification Authority >> All Tasks >> Import

Clicking on the Import button will run the Certificate import wizard.

Browse the intermediate certificate file you want to import to your computer and click Next.

Select the certificate store you want to import the certificate into – Intermediate Certification Authorities for intermediate certificates and Trusted Root Certification Authorities for root certificates.

If you have several intermediate/root certificates in a single file, you can choose the option 'Automatically select the certificate store based on the type of certificate'. Wizard will detect the type of the certificates and import them into the corresponding stores.

Click the Finish button to complete the wizard. The certificate has been successfully imported.

Note: Generally, the root certificates for SSL we provide should be already pre-installed on the Windows machine. So, a manual root certificate import may only be needed if the root certificate was removed intentionally.

Also, when establishing the handshake, the root certificates are not returned by Windows servers to the clients, so some SSL checking tools may show that the root certificate is missing.

Meet the Indian teen who has developed world's smallest satellite for Nasa in June 2017




When the US' National Aeronautics and Space Administration (Nasa) launches the world's smallest satellite KalamSat on June 21, it will be the first time ever that it would be piloting an experiment by an Indian student. Developed by Rifath Sharook, an 18-year-old boy, from Tamil Nadu's Pallapatti town, KalamSat weighs only 64 grammes.

'KalamSat', named after India's nuclear scientist and former President, APJ Abdul Kalam, will be launched from a Nasa facility in Wallops Island. Sharook's project, the first to be manufactured via 3D printing, got selected through a competition, 'Cubes in Space', sponsored jointly by NASA and 'I Doodle Learning'. The project aims to take the performance of new technology to space.


Key features of the miniature satellite

Sharook said it would be a sub-orbital flight and after launch the mission span would be 240 minutes. The tiny satellite would operate for 12 minutes in a micro-gravity environment of space. "The main role of the satellite will be to demonstrate the performance of 3D-printed carbon fibre", the Times of India quoted Sharook as saying.

Speaking about his experience, Sharook added: "We designed it completely from scratch. It will have a new kind of on-board computer and eight indigenous built-in sensors to measure acceleration, rotation and the magnetosphere of the earth. The main challenge was to design an experiment to be flown to space which would fit into a four-metre cube weighing 64 grammes".

His experiment was funded by an organisation called 'Space Kidz India', said Sharook, adding he had a great interest in space and he was also a subscriber of the Nasa Kid's Club.

Kalam SAT was a experimental payload. It is named after former Indian president Dr. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam and was built by an Indian High school student team. The high school team participated in Cubes in Space, a STEM-based education program by Idoodle Learning.Inc and NASA. As selected student competitors, the team won an opportunity to design experiments to be launched into space on a NASA rocket. Kalam SAT was launched on suborbital trajectory by NASA along with several other experiments on Terrier Orion sounding rocket on 22 June 2017 from Wallops Island flight facility in Virginia.[1][2][3][4][5][6][7][8]

The weight of the probe is 64 grams and it is fitted in a 3.8 centimeters cube. The probe is composed of 3-D printed reinforced carbon fiber polymer. The probe was launched by a sub-orbital spaceflight. The expected time span of the mission (post flight) is 240 minutes. The tiny probe will be operated only for less than 12 minutes to demonstrate the performance of 3-D printed carbon fiber in a micro-gravity environment of space.

The probe was built by seven Students from Space Kidz India, a Research Organization based in Chennai, as a part of a 'Cubes in Space' competition. This contest was jointly organized by NASA and 'I Doodle Learning', which is a global education company. This was the first time that a space probe made by an Indian student, was launched by NASA.[citation needed]

World's Smallest Satellite Created For NASA By 18-Year-Old Indian Teen



Although the space shuttle program may have been temporarily halted in the United States, NASA is still alive and well — and now, thanks to 18-year-old Rifath Sharook of India, are launching their smallest-ever satellite into space. The satellite is called 'KalamSat,' named after Indian nuclear scientist, pioneer in the aeronautics field, and former president, Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam, and is the first-ever to be manufactured by 3-D printing, a tech trend we don't see disappearing (or even going away a bit) anytime soon. NASA is planning on launching it off of Wallops Island, Virginia, on June 21, according to the Business Standard.

Rifath's satellite beat out of a slew of other inventions at a competition jointly sponsored by NASA and 'I Doodle Learning' called 'Cubes in Space,' in an effort to bring new technologies and devices to space and solve current quandries as well as new ones. "The main role of the satellite will be to demonstrate the performance of 3-D printed carbon fibre. We did a lot of research on different cube satellites all over the world and found ours was the lightest," he told the Times of India. Despite being from a small town in Tamil Nadu called Pallapatti, Rifath does have bigger than big-city dreams for the 240 minute-long mission and his aeronautics career — and has proved his scientific prowess in the past, too.

When he was just 15, he invented a two-and-a-half pound helium weather balloon from a ground in Kelambakkam, as a part of the Young Scientist India-2015 competition held by Space Kidz India. (Plus, in the past, NASA's also had assistance from other teens, like the 17-year-old Brit who noticed an error in the International Space Station data.)

NASA launches world's smallest satellite on June 2017 - created by 18-year-old Indian student Rifath Sharook ( Tamil Nadu Karur )

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zZvMbHKzEEM

NASA launched the world's smallest and lightest satellite on Thursday. The satellite weighs 64 grams, lighter than a smartphone. It is also the first satellite to be constructed using 3D printer. The device was created by 18-year-old Indian student Rifath Sharook, whose idea was chosen from 86,000 designs submitted from 57 countries, in a contest held in May by NASA and a global education company.

Helping you avoid COVID‑19 online scams



We want to keep you safe whenever you're online. That's why everything we make is protected with powerful built-in security technologies that help detect and block threats before they ever reach you.

Recently, there has been a significant rise in online scams related to COVID‑19. We're providing these tips to help you spot and avoid these scams, so you can stay safer online.



Common types of COVID‑19 scams

Stealing your personal data

Scammers who ask for too much information, such as your address, bank account details or even PIN number to "fix" your insurance policy or conduct fake contact tracing.


Fake offers of goods and services

Massive discounts on masks or subscriptions to online entertainment services from unknown third parties.


Impersonation of authorities

Impersonation of government organisations like Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MoHFW) and Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) offering COVID‑19 information.


Fraudulent medical offers

Offers of cures, test kits, hand sanitiser or face masks that never arrive.


Fake requests for charitable donations

Donations to support COVID‑19 relief from non-profits, hospitals, or other organizations should be carefully checked.


Tips to avoid COVID‑19 scams


Know how scammers may reach you

Scammers are taking advantage of the increase in COVID‑19 communications by disguising their scams as legitimate messages about the virus. Alongside emails, scammers may also use SMS, automated calls and malicious websites to reach you.


Check trusted sources directly

Scammers often pose as well-known, trusted and authoritative sources. Directly visit sources like Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MoHFW) to get the latest factual information about COVID‑19.


Be cautious of requests for personal or financial information, pause and evaluate before sharing

If you receive an unsolicited request for information, take extra time to evaluate the message. Scammers will often ask you to share more information than necessary, such as login information, bank details and addresses with them. They may also request payment via bank transfer or virtual currency.


Donate directly through non-profit organizations

Some scams take advantage of goodwill, requesting donations for COVID‑19 relief efforts or impersonating non-profit organizations. To be more confident your money will reach a non-profit organization, you can donate directly through their website ─ rather than clicking a link sent to you.


Double check links and email addresses before clicking

Fake links often imitate established websites by adding extra words or letters. If it says something like "click here," hover over the link or long press the text to check the URL for mistakes ─ being careful not to click it. Misspelled words or random letters and numbers in the URL or email address may also indicate a scam.


Search to see if it's been reported

If somebody has sent you a fraudulent message, it's likely they've sent it to other people as well. Copy and paste the email address, phone number, or most suspicious portion of the message into a search engine to check if it's been reported by others.


Add an extra layer of security to your account

For extra protection online, add two-factor authentication — also known as 2-step verification — to your accounts. This provides another layer of security by requiring two steps to gain access to your account: for example, something you know (your password) and something you physically have on hand (like your phone or a security key).


Report it

If you see something suspicious, report it to g.co/ReportPhishing or g.co/ReportMalware

Interesting facts of Bhavin Turakhia in 2020, Founder and CEO of Directi

BI India BureauMar 4, 2020, 16:50 IST

Bhavin Turakhia, the serial entrepreneur who found five companies like Reseller Club, Logic Boxes, Big Rock 20 years ago in 1994 but big rock in 2014.

Bhavin Turakhia, the serial entrepreneur who found five companies is a role model for a number of aspiring entrepreneurs. Starting his first company as early as 17 years, he rose up to create a list of firms driven by his belief, "It is our moral obligation to make an impact that is proportionate to our potential". Through a series of technology-led innovations, he strove through his ventures to solve problems and maximizing efficiency, which he kept as the watchwords behind every achievement.

Some interesting facts about Bhavin Turakhia that will inspire you.

He founded three companies at the age of 17

Bhavin Turakhia co-founded Resellerclub, Logicboxes and BigRock at the age of 17. In 2014, all these companies were sold in a deal worth $160 million. At present, he heads Radix, a leader in registry for top-rated extensions, Flock, a portfolio of productivity apps, and Zeta, a platform for digital payments.

Education and childhood

He attended the Arya Vidya Mandir school in Bandra , Mumbai and later, enrolled himself DG Ruparel College only to drop the course midway. In an interview with the BBC , he said he discontinued the course since he learnt most of the syllabus himself. He then moved to complete his bachelor's degree in commerce from Sydenham College of Commerce and Economics.

As a child, he dedicated a lot of time to coding. Their father bought the first coding book at the age of eight. " I would spend all of my short breaks, lunch breaks, several hours after school every day. My dad would buy me tons of programming books, and I would go through them one after another. I went through more than 25, 30 different books to learn programming and GW-BASIC, Visual Basic, and CC++ on MS-DOS back in the day.

Turakhia is worth $1.3 bilion

In 2016, Forbes ranked him along with his brother Divyank Turakhia as the 95th richest person in India credited with a net worth of US$ 1.3 billion. The World Economic Forum honored him as Young Global leader in 2011.

According to Forbes, the Turakhia brothers were millionaires even before they were 20 years old. Their networth rose to $300 million in their mid-20s. They are among the youngest billionaires in the country.

His mantra for success

The billionaire entrepreneur says his mantra for success was a quote which his father often used to say, 'You can achieve anything you set your mind to'. Turakhia says this mantra ringed in his ears all the time steering his journey towards success.

'Family matters a lot'

Turakhia has a strong opinion that family plays a big role in shaping every individual. Talking about his father, he says, "Everything I am today is in many ways thanks to my father. He used to work from nine to nine everyday just to make ends meet. But this is what he used to say. Sometimes we'd be like, 'Dad, we know'. But the number of times it was repeated, you really internalize it."

Future plans to venture US with ZETA, Flock, Radix Registry and other companies

The four-year old Zeta, started with Indian banks, and subsequently branched out to countries like Brazil, the Philippines, and Vietnam. But now Turakhia has plans to take Zeta to US and other European markets like Italy and Spain.

Covid-19: At Rs 43.5 trn by March, Indian households' debt at record high

Indian households had debts worth nearly Rs 43.5 trillion at the end of March this year, up from Rs 6.6 trillion at the end of March 2008 and Rs 19.3 trillion five years ago at the end of FY15
Krishna Kant  |  Mumbai
Last Updated at April 18, 2020 09:53 IST

Indian households have entered the Covid-19 lockdown with a record level of debt and poor income growth, making it tough for many families to absorb income losses owing to the pandemic.

Indian households had debts worth nearly Rs 43.5 trillion at the end of March this year, up from Rs 6.6 trillion at the end of March 2008 and Rs 19.3 trillion five years ago at the end of FY15.

Outstanding retail loans are now equivalent to 21.3 per cent of India's GDP in FY20, up from 13.2 per cent at the end of March 2008 and 15.5 per cent at the end of March 2015.

In the last five years, household income as indicated by the salary and wages bill of the country's top listed companies has expanded at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.3 per cent against 17.7 per cent CAGR growth in borrowing by households or individuals. This is based on the data by the Reserve Bank of India and the balance sheet of top listed non-bank retail lenders (see the adjoining chart).

Some non-bank lenders in our sample include Housing Development and Finance Corporation, Bajaj Finance, Shriram Transport Finance, Indiabulls Housing, L&T Finance, and M&M Finance.

"In the past five-six years, compensation growth has been in low single digits, and, adjusted for retail inflation of 4-5 per cent, workers have barely managed to maintain their purchasing power and there has little or no income growth in real terms," said Dhananjay Sinha, head, equity, and head strategist, Systematix Group.



Many households and individuals, however, have maintained their consumption levels either by cutting back on savings, or resorting to borrowing, or both. Household savings as a proportion of GDP declined to 18.2 per cent in FY19, the latest year for which data is available, from 19.6 per cent in FY15 and 22.4 per cent in FY08.

In contrast, the 2008 Lehman crisis was preceded by a period of strong double-digit growth in households' income, providing many families with a large nest egg to absorb the loss incurred.

For example, the combined salary and wage bill of a sample of 977 listed companies that are part of the BSE 500, BSE Mid-Cap, and BSE Small Cap indices grew at a CAGR of 24.5 per cent between FY04 and FY08.

The last few years have been dismal for households in terms of income growth and the resulting cash flows. In the last five years, household income as indicated by the salary and wage bill of the country's top listed companies has expanded at a CAGR of 4.3 per cent, which is about the same rate as consumer inflation.

The divergence between income and consumption shows in the private consumption component of India's gross domestic product (GDP). In the past five years, private final consumption expenditure (PFCE) — the consumption component of GDP — grew at a CAGR of 16 per cent, nearly four times the underlying growth in salaries and wages.

The result has been a steady rise in household debt-to-income ratio, whichever way one looks at it. For example, outstanding personal loans were equivalent to 21.3 per cent of India's GDP in FY20, up from 13.2 per cent at the end of March 2008.

A boom in retail credit means that interest on personal loans, including home and auto loans, now accounts for a greater proportion of a household's income and cash flows than in 2008. This, analysts say, may force many individuals to reshuffle their household budget after the pandemic.

"Expect a sharp dip in consumption and down trading by consumers and rise in savings (as a proportion of their income) as individuals try to adjust their finances to the new economic reality," said Sinha.
Others say the crisis cannot be compared with the one of 2008, which originated in the US and affected largely financial services and foreign trade.

"Currently nearly 75 per cent of segments in manufacturing and services are shut. In 2008, on the other hand, the crisis led to a dip in India's merchandise exports while banks and financial services companies were not able to mobilise resources from overseas investors. The rest of the economy continued to operate as usual even at the height of the crisis," said G Chokkalingam, chief executive officer and founder, Equinomics Research & Advisory Services.

L&T gets orders worth Rs 27,000 cr from domestic clients in April so far

Analysts see these order wins as spill-overs from the quarter ended March, 2020
Amritha Pillay  |  Mumbai
Last Updated at April 18, 2020 02:10 IST

Engineering conglomerate Larsen & Toubro (L&T) on Friday announced a significant order win for its building and factory business. With this order, the company has announced order wins worth up to Rs 27,000 crore so far in April.

Most of these orders were from clients in the domestic market. In total, they are valued between Rs 14,500 crore and Rs 27,000 crore. The company does not disclose exact order values, but shares a range.

Analysts see these wins as a spillage from the March quarter. However, the firm stands to gain owing to a large order book as well as exposure to diverse markets.

On Friday, L&T announced order win in the range of Rs 1,000-2,500 crore. The works related to the setting up of a cement plant, a real estate project and smart data centres. All orders were from the domestic market.

This is the fourth order win announced in April. The earlier ones included building a regional rapid transit system in Uttar Pradesh, water management orders in Karnataka, power transmission orders from its overseas markets, information technology infrastructure project from the Indian Army and a distillation unit project for Indian Oil. These orders were valued between Rs 13,500 crore and Rs 24,500 crore.



For the quarter ended December 2019, L&T's total order inflow was Rs 41,579 crore, and the company's outstanding order book was Rs 3.06 trillion. In January, the company maintained its full-year guidance of 10-12 per cent growth in order inflow for the full year. The guidance back then did not reflect the disruptions caused by the coronavirus disease (Covid-19) and the subsequent nationwide lockdown in March.

Baid expects L&T's Rs 3.06 trillion order book to put it on a strong footing compared to peers. "Most capital goods firms have order backlog for the next six-nine months, after which there will be concerns on revenue visibility. With Rs 3 trillion worth of order book, L&T is an outlier, which should keep it occupied for at least 18-20 months if not more," she said.

Analysts at ICICI Securities also expected companies like L&T to consolidate the engineering, procurement and construction markets in terms of tender wins. "Companies with strong balance sheets and minimum leverage will stand to gain given the tight liquidity scenario. Some smaller and marginal players will suffer due to leverage leading to reduction in competitive intensity in some tenders and gradual consolidation by larger players," analysts with the brokerage wrote in a note.

The Most Affordable iPhone Features A13 Bionic, the Fastest Chip in a Smartphone, and the Best Single-Camera System in an iPhone


[smg id=16031]

Cupertino, California — Apple today announced the second-generation iPhone SE, a powerful new iPhone featuring a 4.7-inch Retina HD display, paired with Touch ID for industry-leading security. iPhone SE comes in a compact design, reinvented from the inside out, and is the most affordable iPhone. The new iPhone SE is powered by the Apple-designed A13 Bionic, the fastest chip in a smartphone, to handle the most demanding tasks. iPhone SE also features the best single-camera system ever in an iPhone, which unlocks the benefits of computational photography including Portrait mode, and is designed to withstand the elements with dust and water resistance.

[smg id=16032]

iPhone SE comes in three beautiful colors — black, white and (PRODUCT)RED — and will be available for pre-order beginning Friday, April 17, starting at just $399 (US).

"The first iPhone SE was a hit with many customers who loved its unique combination of small size, high-end performance and affordable price; the new second-generation iPhone SE builds on that great idea and improves on it in every way — including our best-ever single-camera system for great photos and videos — while still being very affordable," said Phil Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. "iPhone SE features the industry-leading performance of A13 Bionic that enables great battery life, takes stunning Portrait mode and Smart HDR photos, shoots amazing videos with stereo audio, is great for games and super fast web surfing, and is built with the same industry-leading security features our customers expect. We can't wait to get iPhone SE into customers' hands."

[smg id=16033]

Popular Design with a 4.7-inch Display

iPhone SE features an aerospace-grade aluminum and durable glass design with an all-black front, and is available in black, white and (PRODUCT)RED. The rear glass finish includes a centered Apple logo and is made using a seven-layer color process for precise hue and opacity, delivering rich depth of color with a color-matched aluminum band. It is water- and dust-resistant with an IP67 rating for water resistance up to 1 meter for 30 minutes.1

The 4.7-inch Retina HD display with True Tone adjusts the white balance to match the ambient light for a more natural, paper-like viewing experience. The vibrant wide color gamut Retina HD display offers incredible color accuracy, and supports Dolby Vision and HDR10 playback. iPhone SE uses Haptic Touch for Quick Actions — such as animating Live Photos, previewing messages, rearranging apps and more — as well as contextual menus.

PM-CARES Fund - Zoho Corp - a donation of Rs 25 crore by Zoho Corp Sridhar Vembu

[smg id=16029 type=full]


Sridhar Vembu is one of the few individuals who doesn't need to answer to banks or VCs about debt or increasing shareholder wealth. The Founder and CEO of privately-held Zoho Corp, a maker of cloud-based business software, recently announced a donation of Rs 25 crore to the PM-CARES Fund.  And characteristically, he spoke about why this was possible for a non-funded company.  "This donation was possible because of the capital built by our employees and the patronage of our customers," Sridhar said.

Google CEO Sundar Pichai taking the lead at Alphabet Inc & Google Inc

Alphabet has announced that Larry Page and Sergey Brin are stepping down as the respective CEO and president of the company, with Google CEO Sundar Pichai taking the lead at both companies, effective immediately. Page and Brin will still be involved as co-founders, board members and shareholders.

The two outgoing execs explained this as a "natural time" to streamline management now that Alphabet is "well-established" and its various brands (including Google) are operating smoothly as independent companies. In a tweet, Pichai said, "We have a timeless mission, enduring values and a culture of collaboration & exploration."


More Detailed Letter from Larry Page & Sergey Brin and also an email from New Alphabet CEO Sundar Pichai : https://blog.google/inside-google/alphabet/letter-from-larry-and-sergey/


A letter from Larry and Sergey

Larry Page and Sergey Brin
Founders
Published Dec 3, 2019

Our very first founders' letter in our 2004 S-1 began:

Google is not a conventional company. We do not intend to become one. Throughout Google's evolution as a privately held company, we have managed Google differently. We have also emphasized an atmosphere of creativity and challenge, which has helped us provide unbiased, accurate and free access to information for those who rely on us around the world."


We believe those central tenets are still true today. The company is not conventional and continues to make ambitious bets on new technology, especially with our Alphabet structure. Creativity and challenge remain as ever-present as before, if not more so, and are increasingly applied to a variety of fields such as machine learning, energy efficiency and transportation. Nonetheless, Google's core service—providing unbiased, accurate, and free access to information—remains at the heart of the company.


However, since we wrote our first founders' letter, the company has evolved and matured. Within Google, there are all the popular consumer services that followed Search, such as Maps, Photos, and YouTube; a global ecosystem of devices powered by our Android and Chrome platforms, including our own Made by Google devices; Google Cloud, including GCP and G Suite; and of course a base of fundamental technologies around machine learning, cloud computing, and software engineering. It's an honor that billions of people have chosen to make these products central to their lives—this is a trust and responsibility that Google will always work to live up to.


And structurally, the company evolved into Alphabet in 2015. As we said in the Alphabet founding letter in 2015:


"Alphabet is about businesses prospering through strong leaders and independence."


Since we wrote that, hundreds of Phoenix residents are now being driven around in Waymo cars—many without drivers! Wing became the first drone company to make commercial deliveries to consumers in the U.S. And Verily and Calico are doing important work, through a number of great partnerships with other healthcare companies. Some of our "Other Bets" have their own boards with independent members, and outside investors.


Those are just a few examples of technology companies that we have formed within Alphabet, in addition to investment subsidiaries GV and Capital G, which have supported hundreds more.  Together with all of Google's services, this forms a colorful tapestry of bets in technology across a range of industries—all with the goal of helping people and tackling major challenges.


Our second founders' letter began:


"Google was born in 1998. If it were a person, it would have started elementary school late last summer (around August 19), and today it would have just about finished the first grade."


Today, in 2019, if the company was a person, it would be a young adult of 21 and it would be time to leave the roost. While it has been a tremendous privilege to be deeply involved in the day-to-day management of the company for so long, we believe it's time to assume the role of proud parents—offering advice and love, but not daily nagging!


With Alphabet now well-established, and Google and the Other Bets operating effectively as independent companies, it's the natural time to simplify our management structure. We've never been ones to hold on to management roles when we think there's a better way to run the company. And Alphabet and Google no longer need two CEOs and a President. Going forward, Sundar will be the CEO of both Google and Alphabet. He will be the executive responsible and accountable for leading Google, and managing Alphabet's investment in our portfolio of Other Bets. We are deeply committed to Google and Alphabet for the long term, and will remain actively involved as Board members, shareholders and co-founders. In addition, we plan to continue talking with Sundar regularly, especially on topics we're passionate about!


Sundar brings humility and a deep passion for technology to our users, partners and our employees every day. He's worked closely with us for 15 years, through the formation of Alphabet, as CEO of Google, and a member of the Alphabet Board of Directors. He shares our confidence in the value of the Alphabet structure, and the ability it provides us to tackle big challenges through technology. There is no one that we have relied on more since Alphabet was founded, and no better person to lead Google and Alphabet into the future.


We are deeply humbled to have seen a small research project develop into a source of knowledge and empowerment for billions—a bet we made as two Stanford students that led to a multitude of other technology bets. We could not have imagined, back in 1998 when we moved our servers from a dorm room to a garage, the journey that would follow.

Sundar sent the following email to Googlers on Tuesday, December 3:
Hi everyone,


When I was visiting Googlers in Tokyo a few weeks ago I talked about how Google has changed over the years. In fact, in my 15+ years with Google, the only constant I've seen is change. This process of continuous evolution -- which the founders often refer to as "uncomfortably exciting" -- is part of who we are. That statement will feel particularly true today as you read the news Larry and Sergey have just posted to our blog.

The key message Larry and Sergey shared is this:


While it has been a tremendous privilege to be deeply involved in the day-to-day management of the company for so long, we believe it's time to assume the role of proud parents—offering advice and love, but not daily nagging!


With Alphabet now well-established, and Google and the Other Bets operating effectively as independent companies, it's the natural time to simplify our management structure. We've never been ones to hold on to management roles when we think there's a better way to run the company. And Alphabet and Google no longer need two CEOs and a President. Going forward, Sundar will be the CEO of both Google and Alphabet. He will be the executive responsible and accountable for leading Google, and managing Alphabet's investment in our portfolio of Other Bets. We are deeply committed to Google and Alphabet for the long term, and will remain actively involved as Board members, shareholders and co-founders. In addition, we plan to continue talking with Sundar regularly, especially on topics we're passionate about!


I first met Larry and Sergey back in 2004 and have been benefiting from their guidance and insights ever since. The good news is I'll continue to work with them -- although in different roles for them and me. They'll still be around to advise as board members and co-founders.

I want to be clear that this transition won't affect the Alphabet structure or the work we do day to day. I will continue to be very focused on Google and the deep work we're doing to push the boundaries of computing and build a more helpful Google for everyone. At the same time, I'm excited about Alphabet and its long term focus on tackling big challenges through technology.

The founders have given all of us an incredible chance to have an impact on the world. Thanks to them, we have a timeless mission, enduring values, and a culture of collaboration and exploration that makes it exciting to come to work every day. It's a strong foundation on which we will continue to build. Can't wait to see where we go next and look forward to continuing the journey with all of you.

Bharti Airtel-Reliance Jio fight enters next phase - 03 Sept 2019

New Delhi: Bharti Airtel launched a digital entertainment services platform christened Airtel Xstream, three days before Reliance Jio Infocomm's home broadband is set to go live, taking the rivalry between the two telecom operators to the next stage.

The Sunil Mittal-led telco's platform will allow customers to access diverse digital content on a screen of their choice – television, PC or smartphone – with a unified user interface.

The content on Airtel Xstream will include live TV, videos, music, news and sports that can be viewed using an OTT (over the top) smart stick, an internet-enabled set-top box and handheld devices.

Airtel's offering is aimed at combatting Jio's imminent home broadband blitz that analysts said could trigger another disruption, primarily in the urban digital TV and home broadband market.

The telco unveiled two Android-based connected devices on Monday – an Xstream OTT stick and an Xstream 4K hybrid box – priced at Rs 3,999 each, that will make any TV a smart device. The hybrid box comes with a complimentary 1-year subscription worth Rs 999 to all Xstream content in addition to a month's subscription to an HD direct to-home digital TV services pack.

"Airtel Xstream is India's first converged entertainment platform that will cater to needs of a new generation of consumers looking for seamless and converged entertainment across multiple screens at home and on-the-go," Adarsh Nair, chief product officer at Bharti Airtel, said in a statement.

ET reported in its August 22 edition that Airtel would bundle a customised Android-based set-top box to deliver digital entertainment and fast broadband services in September.

Airtel's entertainment service platform "is a strong counter-offer ahead of JioFiber's launch," signalling the telecom market is rapidly moving towards quad-play, bundling a mix of mobile, digital TV, fast broadband and landline services, said Rohan Dhamija, a partner at Analysys Mason.

However, he was sceptical about the "actual impact and utility" of Airtel's hardware because there are already "several hardware options in the market from the likes of Google and Amazon that can transform an ordinary TV into a smart one, coupled with apps in circulation from TataSky and Hotstar that customers can easily download to enjoy a television-like experience on their smartphone screens."

An Airtel user of Netflix or Amazon Prime won't be able to transfer the balance to the stick or the hybrid box. So, experts said this is "effectively over and above the fixed costs."

Mukesh Ambani-led Jio's home broadband plans – which is likely to also provide access to apps such as Jio Cinema, Jio TV, Jio Cinema and music, besides gaming, video calling and virtual reality via its set-top box – will be priced between Rs 700 and Rs 10,000 a month.

Brokerage Jefferies said the "key for JioFiber will be the pricing," once the plans are commercially rolled out.

Analysts said Jio's promise of a free HD or 4K LED smart television along with a 4K set-top box to those opting for its yearly home broadband packs could be the game-changer and induce customer churn at urban-focussed TV distributors such as TataSky, Airtel Digital TV and Siti, especially with national cable TV players Hathway and Den Networks already in the Reliance fold.

"Competition is busy doing what they are doing, but we are obsessed with our customers," Airtel's Nair told ET.

Latest regulatory data pegs the national DTH user base at about 73 million, with Dish TV commanding a 40% market share, followed by Tata Sky (25%), Airtel Digital TV (22%) and Sun Direct (12%). Airtel is said to have been in talks to acquire Dish TV to beef up its DTH play.

Jefferies said average revenue per user (ARPU) for broadband ranges from Rs 400 to Rs 1,000 a month, with 100 GB plans generating Rs 600 to Rs 1,000. Additionally, TV ARPUs are about Rs 200.

Airtel's home services ARPU grew 1.2% sequentially to Rs 825 in the quarter ended June, while its digital TV services ARPU fell almost 33% sequentially to Rs 157 in the first quarter.

Airtel executives said that with the OTT stick, an 'Airtel Thanks' customer gains automatic access to digital content. Others need to buy a Rs 999 subscription to access such content, beyond the first 30-day free offer. Airtel Thanks is a rewards programme for select customers.

In the case of DTH, subscription to content is automatic and existing Airtel digital TV customers can upgrade to Airtel Xstream box by paying a flat Rs 2,249.

YouTube has over 245 million monthly active users in India? - your story

Did you know that YouTube has over 245 million monthly active users in India? The platform credits a lot of this growth to Jio, and local languages, saying that more than 60 percent of its watch-time in India comes from outside the metros.


Today, there are over 300 YouTube channels from India that have more than one million subscribers. Just five years ago, this number was only 16. 'YouTuber' is fast becoming an enviable tag, with content creators quitting full-time jobs, catering to millions of internet users in India.


BCG predicts that India's online video market to be worth $5 billion by 2023, and YouTube is likely to occupy a giant share of that pie.

#AngelTax and Why it Matters to Startups in India

In recent days there has been a big furore in India around the Angel Tax. But, what is this Angel Tax?

Angel tax is the tax levied on funds raised by Indian start-ups through issue of shares to Indian residents. The Income Tax department has held that when these investments are made at a premium to the fair market value (FMV), the amount raised in excess to the FMV is taxable. The amount is reckoned as "income from other sources" and taxed under Section 56 (2) (viib) of the Income Tax Act, 1961. The rate of tax is 30.9 per cent. Which means that a startup could be asked to pay 30.9% of the amount of investment it has raised to grow the business!

The problem of Fair Market Value

In the context of start-ups, since the idea is at a conceptualisation or development stage, it is difficult to objectively determine the fair market value (FMV) of the shares of the start-up.

Start-ups have little/no revenues or profits and their valuation is based on the potential of the idea, the background and competence of the founding team, etc. and is usually a matter of negotiation between the founders and the angel investors.

The start-ups cannot be evaluated only on their assets, since the assets (both tangible and intangible) are built mostly by successfully executing the business idea. Nor is it easy to arrive at a 'fair value', based on discounted cash flows, since the business is subject to various market forces, including market acceptance and competition from current and emerging competitors and newer technologies over time.

The startup valuations are often subjective – a valuation, which seems high to some, may be fair to others. Also, the valuations agreed between the parties may, in hindsight, turn out to be advantageous for one party or the other, but that is inherent in the nature of risk taking by entrepreneurs and early investors. It is impossible to create a homogenous logic for such investments, be it DCF or a valuation by merchant bankers, etc.

It is also not necessary that each start-up meets the initial projections and hence valuations can come down. That, however, does not invalidate the original projections. However, in multiple instances the IT department, with the benefit of hindsight, has invalidated the original valuations, reduced 'fair market value' at the time of assessment and increased the premium amount on which the tax is to be levied.

Given the traditional ways of the IT Department in determining FMV (ignoring intangibles like goodwill, intellectual property, market potential, disruptive ideation etc.), in majority of the cases, the FMV so calculated will be lower than the value at which the capital investment is made. This results into the tax being levied under section 56 (2) (viib).

Why was Angel Tax introduced?

Angel tax was introduced as an anti-abuse provision in the 2012 Budget. It was intended to curb attempts to launder undisclosed income by resident Indians through startup investments. It was felt that given the closed nature of these deals, there was subjectivity regarding valuations and scope for acquiring shares at a premium for very little equity and using the mechanism to convert black money to white.

How is Angel Tax impacting start-ups?

Angel tax is problematic for a few reasons:

The heavy-handed approach of tax authorities in determining FMV by ignoring the dynamics of the start-up ecosystem.
Higher valuations, when raising funds, are beneficial since it means that start-ups have more funds for growth. However, if the inflows to business are reduced by heavy taxation, then business is a victim of its own success in commanding higher valuations.
Higher valuations are good for the startup's employees, since it means giving up less equity. This helps conserve equity for subsequent rounds and also ensures that enough equity is available with the founding team to keep them motivated and also to issue ESOPs to key talent. However, the benefits of higher valuation are negated when share capital or share premium is taxed.
As Section 56 (2) applies only to domestic investors, it discriminates against them as compared to foreign investors, who are not subject to this clause. This adversely impacts the creation of a robust Indian start-up ecosystem, where successful domestic entrepreneurs can fund and support upcoming start-ups. This is how Silicon Valley in the US was built – one wave of successful businesses funding and mentoring the next wave of ideas and companies.
The recent wave of coercive action

In the past few weeks, hundreds of start-ups have received notices from IT authorities asking them to pay taxes on the angel funding raised by them. Some of them have also been slapped with penalties on the tax not paid. In some cases the tax-cum-penalty amount is nearly 50% of the capital raised.

Many start-ups feel that they would rather shut down than face the simultaneous harassment of explaining valuations and also struggling to keep their businesses afloat, knowing that payment of such taxes will definitely kill the business by starving it of funds.

Besides IT Department, MCA has also sent notices to over 2,000 startups that have raised investment in the last five years. It has given a 45 days deadline ending shortly in the January 2019.

Exemption to Sec 56 (2): A Partial Solution

The government in an attempt to grant exemption from the provisions of Sec 56(2) to genuine investors has laid down criteria to recognise start-ups. The qualifying criteria for angel tax exemption are however very tedious and it is beyond the capacity of most start- ups to devote so much time and energy to secure such exemptions.

While applying for exemption from angel tax provisions, the startups must meet the below criteria:

The aggregate amount of paid-up share capital and share premium of the start-up after the proposed issue of shares should not exceed INR 10 Cr.
The revenue of the start-up shall be less than Rs 25 Cr.
The angel investor or proposed investor should have a minimum net worth of Rs 2 Cr and an average annual income of Rs 25 Lakhs or more in the preceding 3 years as per IT Returns.
The startup shall obtained a report from a merchant banker specifying the fair market value of shares in accordance with Rule 11UA of the Income-tax Rules, 1962.
An Inter-Ministerial Board shall then review such cases before deciding to grant exemption.
Even if certain startups fulfil the criteria, it has been difficult for startups to get approval from the Inter Ministerial Board (IMB) due discretionary provisions and delays in cases being listed before the IMB.

What can be potential solutions?

Angel tax provisions should be abolished. The mis-deeds of a handful of black sheep has tarred all investors with the same brush and is leading to a sharp drop in funding options for start-ups. This runs contrary to government's various attempts to promote start-ups, which are an important source of growth and employment creation.

In case the issue of angel tax needs further study, the following solutions may be implemented as an immediate measure:

Issue 1: Fair Market Value (Section 56(2):

Start-ups, which are asset light in the beginning, raise capital on the basis of forward looking projections. These projections are being questioned by the IT Department, which disregards the entire basis of valuation in practice and looks at applying only the net book value method. This will render the valuation of almost all the startups in the country as negative.

Proposed Solution: As a default provision, Assessing Officers (AOs) to accept the valuation principles / calculations submitted by start-ups. Exceptions should be made and queries flagged only if there is concern with regard to the bona fide of the angel investors.

Issue 2: Disallowance of Investment (Section 68):

A lot of startups have been asked to produce evidence of creditworthiness of investors- including audited statements, Bank statements and ITR details. Ideally complying with legal PAN tagged transaction is what startups can do and beyond that onus should be on the IT department and not start-ups. Upon failure to produce these documents, the IT department has the authority to convert this entire investment as taxable income.

Proposed Solution: Asking start-ups to furnish the ITR's of investors will only kill the investor interest. Instead AOs should insist on PAN number and AO's to do a separate investigation for source of fund if required directly.

Issue 3: IMB certification for Angel investment

DIPP's notification of April 2018 expects startups to seek an IMB certification after taking a mercantile banker valuation and investor ITR's before raising angel investment. This long process is slowing down the angel activity.

Proposed Solution: IMB prior to raising fund is impractical; instead the US model of "accredited investors" may be adopted to tackle this.

In Summary:

Angel investors in countries such as US are offered tax benefits when they fund small companies. They are also ways for angel investors to save tax by re-investing gains from one investment into another entrepreneurial venture.

But in India, we are stifling the start-up ecosystem by making it difficult for enterprises to receive funding in the initial years. Investors, who are willing to risk their capital, are also treated with suspicion. The angel investor ecosystem being vibrant is critical to the development of the startup economy. Else we will have a small number of companies that are lucky to get an angel investment who will get a disproportionate share of venture capital investments. But large-scale technological innovations will happen when the startup ecosystem is broad based and for that we need an angel investor ecosystem that is equally broad based.

Ideally, angel tax provisions should be abolished. At the very least, the exemption from the provisions should be automatic and system driven than complex and discretionary. There is no rationale for the IT department asking start-ups to pay tax on the amount they raise 2-3 years back irrespective of whether they made profits or not.

Taxing profit on the capital invested by investors, or the profits of the company is fair but taxing the capital raised is doesn't seem logical. Whether it is share capital or share premium that is raised by the company, it is still capital received. It should not be treated as 'revenue income.

Practically speaking, valuation is a free market agreement and Income Tax should only be levied on realised gain and not notional gain. Only when an investment works out and yields a profit, should the parties making a profit be taxed on the gains.

However, the chilling effect the #AngelTax can have on the investment sentiment is not adequately appreciated. Capital and talent are very mobile – they can easily re-locate to more hospitable and rational destinations like Singapore. That would run contrary to all significant and commendable attempts of the Government of India in promoting Ease of Doing Business, Start-up India and Digital India.

Here's What The CEO Of Dell Has To Say About India's Techies

Complimenting India on its digital drive, Michael Dell, Chairman and CEO of Dell Technologies, said that he gets inspired by what the country is doing to transform its society and economy.

"IndiaStack, for example, is a world-leading concept and as a techie, I get very inspired by what India is doing. It is an amazing government-led effort," Dell said in response to a question by IANS, while addressing the media at the Dell Technologies World 2018, one of IT industry's premier events, here.

IndiaStack is a set of APIs that allows governments, businesses, startups and developers to utilise a unique digital Infrastructure to solve India's problems towards presence-less, paperless and cashless service delivery.

"Governments should understand that the Internet, broadband and fiber are really important in next generation of the society," he said.

Saying that 5G would expedite the digital transformation globally, he said that "governments have to figure out 5G to amplify their productivity or else they will fall behind other countries." "5G is a big enabler of the digital transformation process," Dell said, adding that companies in the future would have to make better use of their data to stay ahead of the competition.

"Success is going forward in a very different way from the past. It starts with company's data that make product and services better, which in turn generates more data. Companies are now using Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) to use this data in the maximum effective way. 5G is just around the corner that would expedite this process better," he added.

He said that the data is the rocket fuel for AI and this technology should be used in an effective way.

Stressing that technology strategy has now become a business strategy, Dell said that consumers globally are using the latest technology offered by the company to amplify their productivity. "We talk often about technology solving our greatest challenges and we are making progress more quickly than ever before. Customers continue to embrace Dell Technologies as their essential infrastructure company in increasing numbers," Dell said.

At the event that started on Monday and which is set to attract over 14,000 visitors, Dell Technologies also felicitated its eight industry leaders-customers for their excellence across all stages of the digital transformation journey. State Bank of India was one of the "Trailblazer Award" winners, along with Volvo Cars/Zenuity, Travelers and Unidad de Conocimiento. Trailblazers are the customers who are one of the forward-thinking companies making progress in the areas of digital, IT, workforce and security transformation.

"Not only are these leaders realising their digital futures through technology innovation, but they are creating an exceptional experience for their employees, customers and communities," said Karen Quintos, Chief Customer Officer at Dell. Besides implementing a converged private Cloud-based data storage, State Bank of India, the largest public-sector bank in the country, also recently opened a major innovation center to explore the integration of emerging technology, such as nlockchain, AI and ML.

The "Innovator Award" winners included Ford Motor Company, Bank Leumi, AeroFarms and Johnson & Johnson.

Wi-Fi facility on Indian flights approved by Telecom Commission

On 1st May, the decision-making body at the telecom department – Telecom Commission approved the application for in-flight internet access for people travelling in India.

Telecom Secretary Aruna Sundararajan quoted "We will now have to create a separate category of licencees called in-flight connectivity provider. These will provide internet as well as voice services within Indian territorial airspace... in both domestic and international flights."

As per Sundararajan, the process of drafting licence terms for in-flight connectivity (IFC) providers will soon be started and applications will be summoned and this can take up to three months. At the beginning, an annual licence fee of Re 1 will be paid by IFC providers.

"It is a fabulous decision. Given the nature of my job, I'm constantly travelling and it is my downtime when I take flights, which now I can use more productively. With data availability, I can catch up on work, read online and stay connected," the MD of Puma India - Abhishek Ganguly quoted.

As long as the user is in Indian airspace, is using an Indian satellite and/or a Department of Space approved satellite for mobile calling and it has an Indian gateway, calling above 3,000m will be allowed. A recommendation to permit foreign satellites and gateways was made by a telecom regulator in January this year.

The cost of these services will be decided as per the current market cost by the telecom department.

According to Neelu Khatri - President of Aerospace at Honeywell India "the pricing would depend on the airline, sometimes it is a part of the ticket and sometimes you areged (rates)... that could start $5-10. Indian airlines will have to see what passengers will be willing to shell out." Honeywell India is a provider of high-speed in-flight Wi-Fi services to global airlines.

However, as per CAPA Centre for Aviation, such services in domestic flights might not yield as much profit.

"Airlines will have to create a business case for the investment needed. Rough estimates suggest fitting the equipment to provide such services in an aircraft could cost around $400,000-600,000... Airlines will have to see whether the investment is recoverable, what is the cost per minute, etc... Initially, the cost to the passenger may be on the higher side," Kapil Kaul - CEO and director - CAPA South Asia mentioned.

Also, the belief of telecom industry is that these services might not yield more returns. "As far as the revenue opportunity is concerned, there won't be high volumes; so we don't see any big bucks coming," quoted Rajan Mathews, director general, Cellular Operators Association of India.

The proposal by Trai to create broadband through public Wi-Fi hotspots was accepted by Telecom Commission on 1st May. Sundararajan mentioned that "we have asked TRAI to work out an operational framework for this."

Suggestions by Trai to establish public data offices (PDO) that are same is public call offices were sent to the telecom department in March 2017. These help in offering public Wi-Fi hotspots and the PDOs will propose small data packs that start at a cost as low as Rs 2.

Though these suggestions have been made, it is still unclear if the government will permit resale of data bought telecom or internet service providers by PDO. Data resale permission is needed to boost public Wi-Fi as per R.S. Sharma – Trai Chairman.

Consumers are also relieved to learn of a three-tier building that is led by a telecom regulator to address their grievances. A regulator will be created after amending the present Trai Act.

Sundararajan, on the availability of disciplinary powers, quoted, "This will have to be worked out by TRAI but it will have to be (an) effective ombudsman."

According to the suggestion by Trai, a telecom regulator needs to be created to address consumer grievances, while having the authority to impose punishment on telecom service providers.

According to the proposal, the company has to address consumer concerns within a set time-frame, when the consumer approaches it. The consumer can go other grievance redressal forums or the regulator if the company does not resolve its issues.

Mathews questioned "the intention is good but a simpler way should be found instead of this three-tier structure. There would also be a cost of setting up redressal offices across the country. And if the mechanism is online, how many people have access to smartphones in India?"

Apple is selling fewer iPhones, but it's making tons of money

Apple's new iPhone X was a disappointment for phone sales.

The iPhone X wasn't a magic elixir to reinvigorate Apple's iPhone sales, but it wasn't the flop some people were saying it would be.

In Apple's second quarter earnings report, the tech giant saw revenue continue to grow but its key product, the iPhone, fell just short of sales expectations.

Analysts were predicting 53 million in sales, but this quarter it was a meager 52.2 million. That's a 32 percent drop from the previous quarter, which saw 77.3 million iPhone sales, though there's always a drop-off from the holiday.

It wasn't all bad news, though. Revenue from iPhones was up about $5 billion year-over-year, going from $33 billion to $38 billion, while the number of iPhones sold only increased from 51 million to 52 million — meaning Apple is generating significantly more money per iPhone than it was last year.

Apple CEO Tim Cook seemed to confirm this in the press release, crediting the iPhone X for leading phone sales: "Customers chose iPhone X more than any other iPhone each week in the March quarter, just as they did following its launch in the December quarter."

This story is developing...

H4 issue: Indian H-1B holders, spouses pursue US govt for H4, Green Card issues

Indian H-1B holders and their spouses are waiting for the resolution of US administration's final decision regarding the revised rules. The Trump administration is making it difficult for visa holders and their families by ing the decision.

The community of Indian visa holders is readily pursuing the Trump government to save their jobs and houses. Yogesh Thakur, an H4 visa holder said, "If the administration wants to take one step, we are ready to take two." Thakur entered the US on his spouse's H-1B. He is one of the few men in the US to work on H4 dependent visa.

US administration's decision regarding H4 is increasing a global attention recently. The backlog of approved green card continues to grow in the country. Indian families are most affected byother H4 visa holders. The data suggests that 90% of the H4 visa holders are Indians, a majority of them being women.

Just a few days ago, GC Reforms conducted a rally on the steps of State House in Trenton to support H4 workers. Producing more activists the Indian immigrant workers community is another problem. The community needs to lobby hard. The backlog of H-1B visas has faced its own battle.

Some of the affected visa holders believe that the system has been exploited by major corporations to hire highly skilled workers India for lower salaries. Which is forcing the US government to take stricter action. As far as green card waiting queue is concerned, applications have been waiting for one to six years for the green card approval. With this rate, 15 lakh Indians will be waiting in the queue for the next 70 years.

Green card backlog has been created due to the cap on the number of green cards that are issued each year. The situation of H4 holders and green card applications is similar to DACA children. If the US government does not reconsider its intended decision, thousands of Indian families will be forced to go back to their home.

Thakur said, "Our status is not changed. To come to a small town in Ohio a cityBombay was a drastic change. And, on top of that, I couldn't work. We had our fights, I would tell her, 'Why did you bring me here, you ruined my life.' But then I got over it. We moved to Chicago and I started liking it. I was able to spend time with my daughter."

Indian Kids taught Coding by Apple to Triumph at the App Store


As a gift for his seventh birthday, Ashwat Prasanna was gifted a MacBook by his parents. After three years and an Apple boot camp, his app Quickvert, a free measurement-converter app, has been downloaded more than 1000 times on the App store.

A kid who frequently misses cartoons to code, Ashwat is among many who have excelled through the company's App Accelerator over the past year in Bengaluru, the technical hub of India. The engineers and designers taught him to write sleeker code for an app that helps in measurement conversion, like Celsius temperature to Fahrenheit and vice versa. The 10 year old Ashwat said that "the uncles here taught me to build a better user interface." Choosing Ashwat's app as one of the accelerator projects platform, Apple Inc. is teaching India's junior developers to charm their way to the App Store.

This accelerator initiative was announced by Chief Executive Officer Tim Cook on his India visit in 2016. It focuses on fast-tracking app development by inviting selected developers every week and teaching them, where experts teach them the latest technology in sessions that range from one day to two weeks. Other companies that have sent developers through this program include Flipkart Online Services Pvt. and food delivery platform Zomato Media Pvt.

Apple's profit will increase with the successfulness of the app and younger talent will showcase its mobile operating system and tempt developers to join Apple other than joining locals who prefer programming for Facebook Inc. or Google's Android. Anshul Gupta, an analyst at researcher Gartner Inc., said that "Apple's strategy is to lock developers into the iOS ecosystem," while Apple declined to comment for this story.

Many high schoolers and community college students in the US are hired by the company to work with its efficient app-coding language, Swift. However, the world's quickest growing smartphone market that is second biggest behind China, Android dominates in India. Only 3.2 million iPhones were bought last year by Indians when compared to the total 125 million smartphones that were purchased. Almost all the remaining were run by Google's operating system. Google initiated the rounding up of thousands of young developers almost 2 years ago with a free government based training program that was offered through a setup in public and private universities, whereas, Apple is just now starting up.

According to Ravi Teja Bommireddipalli, CEO of Robosoft Technologies Pvt. The world largest population of individuals who are 25 years old or younger including unparalleled number of advanced developers are available in India. Robosoft's developers make more money from the App Store, even though they build apps for McDonald's Corp., Apple and Google. The new generation coders push their creative limits, while the old school Indian programmers were known for writing code-to-order at outsourcing companies.

The Apple's accelerator is inserted in a tower in North Bengaluru suburbs and has modular rooms with flexible walls, which can be moved to accommodate a few or a few hundred people.

Apple's engineers had a lot of advice for the 16 year old Harshita Arora, who arrived from a small town outside Delhi, in the two days she spent with them. She quoted "They told me how to write code that consumes less device memory, runs faster and more efficiently." She added "IOS apps are known to earn four times more than Android apps," as she is practical about the economics of apps after her Crypto Price Tracker has been downloaded more than 10000 times since its introduction at the end of January.

Apart from the accelerator, Apple is striving to get cheaper devices in the Indian market for the cost-conscious customers. The company has already begun accumulating its SE plans in Bengaluru and striving to get additional government incentives to set up complete manufacturing operations in the city. This will also help the company to open retail stores in the country, which it has not been able to do till now, by meeting the local sourcing rules.

In the interim, app developers will be provided with marketing and business-model courses this summer. After a few weeks of her training period, a California undertaking company bought Harshita's app, which tracks and displays live prices of more than 1,000 cryptocurrencies across 32 countries' exchanges, for a price that is not revealed. Now she's learning artificial intelligence technologies to build a health-focused product.

The soon-to-be fourth-grader Ashwat, who learned coding through YouTube videos, is toying with a social network app like Facebook where "only users below 16 will be allowed to create an account." Inconspicuously defending this boldness, Apple however cannot present Ashwat or his app at its annual developer conference in San Jose in June. Being 10 years old, he is still three years too young to be invited there on a student scholarship.

Alphabet's Google unveiled on Wednesday its first Gmail redesign 2018 april redesigned Gmail after several years for both gsuite and gmail users - rolling out soon

[smg id=16022 type=full]

Alphabet's Google unveiled on Wednesday its first Gmail redesign since 2013, capping what the company says was an expensive overhaul two years in the making to adopt security and offline functionality and better resemble Microsoft Outlook.
With Gmail, Google said it restructured email storage databases, unified three dueling systems for syncing messages across devices and upgraded computers underpinning the service.

It is Google's most extensive update to software in its G Suite workplace bundle since accelerating efforts to steal business from Microsoft's dominant Office workplace software suite. Previously, G Suite added instant-messaging and spreadsheet features.

With Gmail, Google said it restructured email storage databases, unified three dueling systems for syncing messages across devices and upgraded computers underpinning the service. That shift to Google's self-developed Tensor processing chips enables smart-assistant features such as "suggested replies" to messages and "nudges" to respond to forgotten emails.

"This is an entire rewrite of our flagship, most-used product," said Jacob Bank, product manager lead for Gmail, which 1.4 billion people use each month.
Unreliable offline access to email has long discouraged would-be customers, while recent high-profile corporate data breaches have increased their desire to lock down email. Analysts estimate G Suite generated about $2 billion in revenue last year, 10 times behind Office.


[smg id=16023 type=full]


Google declined to specify costs associated with the redesign. But parent Alphabet reported Monday that first-quarter capital expenditures nearly tripled year-over-year to $7.3 billion.

Chief Financial Officer Ruth Porat told analysts that half of the spending resulted from hardware purchases to support expanding use of machine learning, which describes automated programs that can, among other things, identify spam and predict which emails users would find most important.




[smg id=16024 type=full]

Security and smarts

Google's Bank said the overhaul was required primarily to provide offline access to up to 90 days of emails for users who turn on the feature.

The changes also fulfill another top demand of business executives - message expiration. Users who enable a "confidential" option when sending an email can time-limit its access to recipients and also require they enter a one-time passcode sent to their phones to read it.

The new setting does not override corporate email retention policies or present new obstacles to law enforcement.

"Nudges" and a higher bar for new-mail notifications round out Google's revised sales pitch. The company estimated that nudges will lead 8 percent of business users each week to remember to follow-up on something important.

Cosmetic changes bring Gmail's website in line with Office by placing Google's calendar, tasks and note-taking services within the same page as emails. Bank said testers have advanced from "neutral to positive to very positive" on the new look.

Response reminders - artificial intelligence like

H-1B issue: 60,000 spouses of Indian H-1B holders to lose jobs

The H-1B spouses will soon lose their jobs as the Trump administration is set to denounce their visa status. The USCIS has hinted its decision to end the provision for the H4 work visa.

The US government has issued employment authorization to more than 71,000 spouses of H-1B visa holders. A recent study by Migration Policy Institute in the US suggests that 90% of the H4 holders are Indians. The Obama-era rule has helped the legal immigrant workers to create two income streams to support the family.

Francis Cissna, the Director of US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has written a letter to Senator Chuck Grassley. His letter said, "Our plans include proposing regulatory changes to remove H-4 dependent spouses from the class of aliens eligible for employment authorization, thereby reversing the 2015 final rule that granted such eligibility."

There is no concrete date when the work authorization will be banned for H-1B holder's spouses. However, the USCIS director's letter reveals the estimated date. A formal letter of communication will be made later this summer. The information by lawmakers suggests that the work authorization will be removed post-June this year.

Trump administration had delayed the decision on the termination of work authorization in March. This was a great relief for Indian workers and their families. The Department of Homeland Security had declared in the court submission in March that the decision to terminate work authorization of H4 visa holders will not be taken until June.

The Obama-led government had started issuing work permits to the spouses of H-1B holders in 2015. The government had made a proviso of H-4 visas to allow the dependents of H-1B to come and work in the US. Before 2015, there was no such provision for the spouses of H-1B holders.

The Migration Policy Institute's report suggests that over 71,287 H-4 visas have been granted so far. The institute's report said, "As of June 2017, USCIS had granted 71,287 initial (versus renewal) employment authorization documents to H-4 spouses. Of those H-4 spouses with work authorization as of early 2017, 94 percent were women, and the vast majority, 93 percent, were from India; four percent were from China."

A number of organizations and IT firms are lobbying against the Trump's decision. Silicon Valley-based firms are requesting the Trump government to retain Obama-era rule and allow the H-1B holders' spouses to work legally in the US.

A number of Gmail users got spam messages -- from themselves

Gmail is usually pretty good about filtering out unwanted spam messages, but a number of users reported earlier today that their inboxes were suddenly flooded with ads that were apparently sent from their own accounts, according to Mashable.

Users posted to Gmail's Help Forum, reported that the messages appeared to have been sent from their own accounts, despite the fact that they were secured with two-factor authentication and updated passwords. The spammers used forged email headers to make them appear as though they came from users via a Canadian telecommunications company called Telus, in order to get the messages past spam filters. Because the messages appeared to be coming from the same user, Gmail filed the message into affected users' sent folder.

A Google spokesperson told Mashable that it was a "spam campaign impacting a small subset of Gmail users" and that the company had already "actively taken measures to protect against it." Telus also told Mashable that the messages aren't coming from its servers, and that it's working with vendors to solve the problem.

#BoycottAmazon, what led Twitter outrage on the e-com company

Internet companies face backlash on social media platforms all the time. Amazon India is currently facing a big backlash on Twitter for company's association with Swara Bhaskar.

Angry Twitter users are posting tweets with "#BoycottAmazon". The actor Swara Bhaskar had posted a tweet in support of Kathua and Unnao rape victims. Apparently, the Twitter audience was offended by the message that Bhaskar has used in the tweet. Her tweet reads, "I am Hindustan. I am Ashamed. 8 years old. Gangraped. Murdered. In 'Devi'-sthaan temple. #Kathua."

Right after posting this tweet, the actress posted a promotional tweet for Amazon India. The #BoycottAmazon has been transformed into a social movement. Twitter users are taking out their anger by uninstalling the e-com application and even giving a one-star rating.

A large number of Twitter users are trolling Amazon India for associating with the actress. The e-commerce giant later deleted the promotional tweet published by the actress. It is not clear if the tweet was deleted because of the public outrage.

This is not the first time that an internet company has faced the wrath of offended Indian users.

Snapdeal and Amir Khan
Another e-commerce company faced similar challenge back in 2015. When company's brand ambassador, Amir Khan shared his views on the issue of intolerance in the country, it led to public outrage. Many users took to social media platforms to declare their views. Some users even claimed to have uninstalled the application. The whole incident resulted in Snapdeal firing Amir Khan as a brand ambassador.

Flipkart and Airtel Zero
Airtel received massive criticism for its controversial Airtel Zero program. The company's program violated net neutrality norms. Flipkart was one of the first partners of the same program. The outrage led to many users giving the one-star rating and posting negative reviews for Flipkart. The telecom company had to scrap its Zero program.

Sushma Swaraj vs Amazon
The external affairs minister of India, Sushma Swaraj was offended after it found Amazon selling doormats that resemble the national flag of India. The company's selling partner was selling said doormat on Amazon's Canada store. Sushma Swaraj posted a tweet threatening the company to rescind Amazon's visa.

15 year old Indian programmer creates world's first Social Search Engine

While most of the teenagers use computers for surfing the web for school works, accessing social networking sites, and leveraging social media platforms for entertainment, this was not the case with  Abhik Saha who kept a personal computer at the age of 11 years old.

Thought to be an average student at the Don Bosco English Medium School, Abhik was able to create apps and develop his own search engine gradually with his first computer. This took place in a small town called Chalsa, in the Jalpaiguri district of West Bengal state in India.

Saha's interest in programming was triggered when he initiated his class on the principles of web design at the age of 11. Armed with his computer, the geek kid focussed on that subject even outside of the class. But surprisingly Abhik was not able to pass his computer science test that year being the only failed student.

He then took this an opportunity to improve and focus hard on the subject. I did excellently well in the next computer science exams, this was a major boost,  said Saha in an interview with Your Story.

My teacher appreciated the effort I put into designing web pages but insisted I work on learning programming as well, he said. To me, C++ and other programming languages were plain boring. But what followed is still a surprise to me,'' added Saha.

Abhik after meeting a software developer tried Visual Studio, a programming integrated development environment for creating software.

Abhik began studying programming seriously and improved my coding skills, and solved logical problems. I then knew this was the direction I wanted to take in my life,” he said.

The idea of launching a search engine came to my mind after I successfully created Lino. I began working on the assignment but was in need of funds. Around mid-February 2017, I met an angel investor via Facebook who invested Rs 21 lakh and helped me turn this project into an actual business,'' says Abhik.

He also adds,'' My objective was to build an index and database of websites one by one. I wanted to make a search engine that extracts results from other search engines and algorithmically sorts the best, deletes the spam and malicious sites. Our main feature is, we do not track you or your IP, and you are completely anonymous while using our servers.

After completion of his board exam, Abhik landed in Mumbai and unveiled his search engine in August 2017.

Resume tips: skills you should always mention on your CV as on 2018 April

The main goal of writing a resume is to catch hiring manager’s attention. An impressive resume is your only chance to get the interview call. If the job listing is for software developer’s position, writing “Microsoft Office” in your skills is going to put off the hiring manager. The ideal resume is the one where you are not really bragging about your skills while writing an eye-catchy skills section.

The most common mistake by job seekers is an obsession with programming languages. Even candidates applying for semi-technical and non-technical roles proudly mention all the programming languages they know or have tried their hands-on. The hope to the accretion of these skills makes the candidates look like digital natives. While it’s clear that technical skills are important in many sectors, obsessive use of these skills in your resume can put off the hiring managers.

Tech candidates often tend to lack the core skills that employers look for. If the software development positions involve even a bit of Java programming, the recruiters expect you to have a thorough knowledge of Java. What differentiates good employees from great ones is their ability to work in a team.

Most hiring managers judge the candidate based on the qualities of soft skills, collaborative approach, ability to learn and adapt quickly. If you possess any of these qualities, you must mention it in your resume. You may have an excellent knowledge in non-technical areas like history, literature, poetry or philosophy. It’s a common misconception that tech company doesn’t care about these skills. A lot of companies and hiring managers do.

The soft skills do not necessarily mean the communication skills. It also includes the knowledge of literature, poetry, history, arts and other relevant fields. Every job seeker should have some or other human-based skills to bag a job. The collective work experience often leads to developing skills beyond the technical requirements of the company.

You can easily figure out your skills by following these four steps:


  • Identify the biggest project you have ever worked on in your previous job or the college.
  • Mention the biggest challenges that you could overcome in that project.
  • If you were stuck with some obstacles in those projects, what were the skills that you should have had to overcome those challenges? Some of them may be interpersonal and some may be technical.
  • Find the simplest way to describe those skills as abilities. Make sure that the skills are relevant to the requirements listed for the specific job.

Apple's message for its device users on biggest security flaws - 2 months ago in 2018

Technology giant Apple will unveil a patch for  Safari web browser on its iPhones, iPads, and Macs within a few days, the company said on Thursday, after big chipmakers revealed flaws which leave almost all modern computing device vulnerable to hackers.

On Wednesday, Alphabet,  Google's parent company, and other security researchers revealed two major chip flaws, one by the name  Meltdown impacting only Intel Corp chips and another by the name Spectre impacting almost all of the computer chips manufactured in the last decade.

Apple in a statement on its website has said that all Mac and iOS devices are impacted by both Meltdown and Spectre. But the most recent operating system updates for Mac computers, Apple TVs, iPhones and iPads shields users against the Meltdown attack and do not slow down the devices, it added, and Meltdown does not affect the Apple Watch.

Macs and iOS devices are can be impacted by Spectre attacks through code that can run in web browsers. Apple said it would roll out a patch to its Safari web browser for those devices "in the coming days."

After the researchers disclosed the chip errors on Wednesday, Google and Microsoft Corp issued statements informing about the products which were affected. Google informed that its  Android phone users which make up more than 80 percent of the global market - were protected if they have installed the newest updates.

Ben Johnson, co-founder and chief strategist for cybersecurity firm Carbon Black, said the holdup in updating customers about whether Apple's devices are at risk could impact Apple's drive to get more business customers to implement its hardware.

"Something this severe gets the attention of all the employees and executives at a company, and when they go asking the IT and security people about it and security doesn't have an answer for iPhones and iPads, it just doesn't give a whole lot of confidence," said Johnson.

FinTech startup EarlySalary raises Rs 100 Cr, targets total loans of Rs 1,000 Cr by year-end

On Thursday, fintech startup EarlySalary announced it has closed a Series B funding of Rs 100 crore led by Eight Roads Ventures India. Existing investors IDG Ventures India, Dewan Housing Finance Corp Ltd (DHFL), and seed investor Ashok Agarwal also participated in the round.

Speaking to YourStory, co-founder and CEO of EarlySalary Akshay Mehrotra said the funds from this round will be used for further automating the platform, and to build a bigger loan book.

"At present, 70 percent of our entire platform is automated. With this funding, we will be building the ability to make sure that close to 90-95 percent of the platform is automated. And, we want to do this without increasing our manpower significantly."

At present, EarlySalary has close to 70 members in its team.  It plans to take this number to 80 over time. The company also plans to use the funds to build its loan book, and will look to 100,000 loans on a monthly basis by December.

EarlySalary Team: (L to R): Akshay Mehrotra (CEO), Ashish Goyal (CFO), Vivek Jain (CTO), Vimal Saboo (CBO)
According to Akshay, the company, at present, disburses close to 85,000 loans amounting to Rs 120 crore, and plans to take this number to Rs 1000 crore by the end of this calendar year.

The average ticket size of loans on the platform is Rs 15,600, and just last month, the company received close to 150,000 queries for short-term loan.

Founded by Akshay Mehrotra and Ashish Goyal, EarlySalary is a mobile app that allows salaried individuals to avail instant short-term loans for an average tenure of 30 days, or until the next salary cycle.

In May last year, the company raised its Series A round of funding of $4 million from IDG Ventures India (IDGVI) and Dewan Housing Finance Corp Ltd (DHFL).  The company had then stated that almost 75 percent of the funds would be utilised to build its loan book, while the rest would be used to expand the team.

The platform is also actively tying up with companies to activate newer channels of sales. In the last seven months, EarlySalary received more than 1 million new app downloads, and is already working with more than 100 large employers and partners to provide instant salary advances and short terms loans to working professionals through the EarlySalary mobile app.

The founders say the company lends from its own capital, and takes care of the entire process from lending, to risk assessment and collections. Akshay adds:

"We own the money and we drive the entire product from risk assessment to collections. Hence it is a tougher model and we have to be extremely prudent in our model."

Speaking on the investment, Dhyanesh Shah, Principal at Eight Roads Ventures, will join the board of EarlySalary. He said, "The financial services market in India is ripe for disruption, and we have been actively looking for differentiated opportunities. EarlySalary has stood out for its unique consumer proposition and exceptional management team. The company has cleverly leveraged data and technology to provide instant affordable loans to an otherwise excluded customer segment. We look forward to working closely with Akshay, Ashish and the management team at EarlySalary."

Harshil Mehta, Joint MD and CEO, DHFL commented:

"EarlySalary has been growing at the desired pace and has scaled up the business well. As digital solutions make our lives much more convenient, innovations in customer service will be at the core of business growth. As a fintech enterprise, EarlySalary continues to bring innovative solutions in the lending space by addressing a very relevant consumer need. This is backed by data analytics, consumer insights and strong technology backbone. We continue to look forward to supporting the talented team as they work towards expanding the business."

Looking at this calendar year, Akshay says the company plans to be wherever there is a strong customer use case to take on a short loan.

Last year, the company also experimented with product finance, allowing users to buy electronics on e-commerce marketplace Amazon. Over the next four to five years, the company aims to achieve 20 such partnerships. Akshay adds,

"We are very focused in the short term loan model and want to own the category for salary advance. We want to be solving real customer problems and want to be available at every used case. To give an example, if there is a medical emergency and you need a loan, we will be there; relocation expenses, we are working with some corporates we are working on."

There are several startups working in the short term loan category. Working on specific used cases, there is ZestMoney and Simpl which are focusing on product financing, and AffordPlan which looks at healthcare financing.

India is 2018's top consumer of online content in APAC region: Akamai study in 2018

NEW DELHI: India is the top consumer of online content followed by Thailand and Philippines, according to a study on OTT consumption trends by Akamai Technologies. The study which polled participants across Australia, Indonesia, India, Japan, Philippines and Thailand showed that in India, viewers watched 12.3 hours of online content in a week.

On the other hand in Japan, viewers watched the least content online per week at 6.2 hours. The study noted that the Indian (44%) and Thai (45%) audiences showed similar behaviors of watching online content via smartphone.

In Japan, 50% of the viewers preferred accessing OTT services via non-mobile devices. Also, to 70% of Indian viewers, video and audio quality is of utmost importance followed by fast start-up time which accounted to 56%.

The survey highlighted an increased demand for local OTT players across markets: Hotstar in India, Hooq in Indonesia and Niconico in Japan, amongst others. The country-wise highlights of the study suggested that users in Australia watch online content across three sites on average.

In Indonesia, 73% of users are unlikely to pay for subscription-based content and in Japan 70% of the content that users watch is local. As per the study, 58% of users in the Philippines watch content provided by local players like iWantTV and 45% of users in Thailand access online content via a smartphone.

"It's critical for OTT service providers across the region to understand user preferences as viewers increasingly shift to a culture of consuming content on any device, any time, and anywhere. What now becomes the differentiator are those micro-moments when they access their preferred content that could either be instances of delight for the user from good overall quality of experience or frustration, which can potentially lead to churn," said Vincent Low, Chief Media Strategist & Head of Media Product Marketing APJ at Akamai Technologies.

The study commissioned through research firm Kadence International represents patterns of close to 850 million internet users.

Highly critical Drupal CMS bug has left over 1 million sites open to attack

[smg id=16021 type=full]

The team behind the popular open-source CMS Drupal is urging admins to update their sites to ward off a nasty bug that could leave their sites "highly compromised" to attackers, according to the organization.

The effected versions (Drupal  6, 7 and 8) of the CMS power over one million websites on the internet.

Drupal has marked the security risk as "highly critical" and warns that any visitor to the site could theoretically hack it through remote code execution due to a missing input validation.

"This potentially allows attackers to exploit multiple attack vectors on a Drupal site, which could result in the site being completely compromised," the group noted in a blog post.

Drupal sent out an alert last week, telling users that they'd be dropping a "highly critical release" this weekend and they should update immediately. The announcement was unusual for Drupal and left developers on high alert for the targeted time frame of the release on Friday. Sites running vulnerable versions of Drupal, should update to Drupal 7.58 or Drupal 8.5.1 as soon as possible to avoid exploits. Drupal notes that they have yet to see any reports of exploits in the wild yet.

The bug's official identifier is CVE-2018-7600 though users on social media have taken to calling it drupalgeddon2, referencing another major release from the org in 2014.

HDFC Bank blocks Cryptocurrency trading on its debit and credit cards

It looks like that finally banks are acting on multiple warnings issues time and again by RBI and Finance Ministry.

HDFC Bank blocked all its cards from being used to purchase cryptocurrencies following the regulatory warnings.

"We have decided to not permit use of HDFC Bank credit, debit and prepaid cards towards purchase or trading of bitcoins, cryptocurrencies and virtual currencies, on merchants suspected to be dealing in crypto-currency or online foreign exchange trading or both," the bank said.

In a memo to its customers, the bank said there are "increasing global apprehensions" regarding such investments and trading & RBI has also cautioned regarding the potential economic, operational, legal and security related risks associated in dealing with such currencies.

In the budget speech earlier this year, Finance Minister Mr. Arun Jaitley had cleared the positioning that his government took and had said crypticurrency investments and trading were illegal and had promised to take action at the earliest.

These Indian stocks turns Rs 10,000 to Rs 1 lakh in 3 years

When it gives, the Indian stock market does so with both hands.

Data shows over 150 companies in the Nifty500 index more than doubled investor wealth in last three years January 2015. Among them, three - Minda Industries, Indiabulls Ventures and Rain Industries - swelled investor wealth up to 1,000 per cent, which means an investment of just Rs 10,000 made on January 2, 2015 would have become over Rs 1 lakh on January 3, 2018.

Auto component maker Minda Industries topped the chart with a gain of 1,010 per cent, as the stock jumped to Rs 1,257 as of January 3, 2018 from Rs 113 on January 2, 2015. NSE benchmark Nifty advanced 24 per cent to 10,443 from 8,395 during the same period.

Minda has plans to participate in the electric vehicles space. "We will play a very active role in the electric vehicle and electric vehicle components segments when the time comes. Already, we have separate teams working on various components within the organisation. They are in touch with various OEMs for collaboration. As and when the time comes for production and joint development, we will be fully geared to grab those opportunities," Sudhir Jain, Group CFO, Minda Industries, told ETNow in an earlier chat.

Brokerage IIFL says Minda Industries, through its new products, is expected to see significant increase in content per vehicle supplied.

"We see a strong 20 per cent revenue CAGR during FY17-20E. During the same period, OPM can expand by 20 basis points, translating into a PAT CAGR of 36 per cent. In spite of capex and investments to acquire group holdings, the debt-to-equity (D/E) ratio of the company is likely to be comfortable. RoE and RoCE would be more than 25 per cent in the near term," the brokerage said.

Next in line was Indiabulls Ventures. Investors received 973 per cent returns on the stock since January 2015, as it soared to Rs 259.65 from Rs 24.20. The company acts as a sharebroker of the National Stock Exchange and BSE, besides offering depository and related services.

With a 922 per cent rally, Rain Industries - a favourite of value investors Mohnish Pabrai and Dolly Khanna - managed to bag third place on the list. The scrip surged to Rs 438 as of January 3, 2018 from Rs 42 on January 2, 2015.

Khanna held 2.04 per cent stake in the company as of September 30, 2017, while Pabrai's The Pabrai Investment Fund II and Pabrai Investment Fund 3 held 3.79 per cent and 4.83 per cent, respectively.

On the other hand, Videocon Industries, Religare Enterprises, IOB, Oriental Bank, UCO Bank, Adani Enterprises and Just Dial proved major wealth destroyers, retreating over 50 per cent in the same period.

My first post on BitCoin after years of following the btc story - Top banks suspend accounts of major Bitcoin exchanges in India



I see this move as a promotion strategy by RBI or SEBI or Indian Government etc. They did the same to Uber year ago that they are blocking uber and now uber is been the transport hub of India reaching every corner . Our Indian Government blocked uber since there payment system transfers the money out of India. After a weeks or months, uber introduced Paytm or some payment gateway and Our beautiful Indian Government said go a head Uber India. Now uber give too tooooo much of promotion of 10 rs , 20 rs , 30 rs per trip only for the first timers and then for regularly users weekly once. But they could use those promotions cost x 50 times , may be for tax evading or tax savings from our Indian  Government.

Similarly this bitcoin exchanges in India is ruffly about 4 who dominate from the beginning and rest all is just growing up. Recently we received an enquiry for bitcoin exchange in Anna Nagar who looked to be a small vendor but he want to be a bitcoin Exchange in India like Unicorn. When we quoted him 25 lakh please for the development cost orally just to ignore them, no further response from the vendor.

So i see this axis bank, icici bank, yes bank, sbi bank and hdfc banks have blocked 10 major bitcoin player - Zebpay, Unocoin, CoinSecure and BtcxIndia with over 40,000 crore blocked yesterday.


====
====


Top lenders including State Bank of India, Axis Bank, HDFC Bank, ICICI Bank and Yes Bank have suspended some accounts of major Bitcoin exchanges in India, suspecting dubious transactions, three people aware of the development said.

The banks have also sought additional collateral from the promoters of these exchanges on their borrowings and have capped cash withdrawals from the few accounts that are still operational.  (Source:ET)

"Since last month, banks have been asking for additional collateral with 1:1ratio," a person with knowledge of the matter said.

The banks are scrutinising current accounts held by top Bitcoin exchanges, a second person said. Action has been initiated against the top 10 Bitcoin exchanges including Zebpay, Unocoin, CoinSecure and BtcxIndia, said four people aware of the matter.

"The banks have not contacted the company or the promoters regarding the actions you have mentioned," said Sathvik Vishwanath, promoter of Unocoin.

Emailed queries to Zebpay, Coin-Secure and BtcxIndia did not elicit any response. SBI, Axis Bank, HDFC Bank, ICICI Bank and Yes Bank did not respond to emails seeking comment.

Bitcoins are a digital currency that can be used to buy products and services without any intermediary. People also buy Bitcoins, which has been banned in some countries, as an investment.

Largely Unregulated

Although India hasn't banned Bitcoins, the cryptocurrency is largely unregulated.

The total revenue of the top 10 exchanges in India could be about Rs 40,000 crore, according to tax officials scrutinising these companies.

"These exchanges tend to show the total volumes both on buy and sell side as their revenue. In many instances, the exchanges themselves buy and sell cryptocurrencies on their own platform," said an indirect tax official who is part of a team investigating the applicability of sales tax on Bitcoin exchanges for the previous financial year.

Many of the exchanges operate at a margin of close to 20%, according to the people. The profit comes from the premium charged by the exchanges, the difference in the buying and selling price and when the exchanges themselves get involved in trading.

Most of the exchanges have different rates for buying and selling cryptocurrency. Often, the difference between buying and selling rates is about 25%.

India's richest 1% corner 73% of wealth generation: Survey

The richest 1% in India cornered 73% of the wealth generated in the country last year, a new survey showed today, presenting a worrying picture of rising income inequality.

Besides, 67 crore Indians comprising the population's poorest half saw their wealth+ rise by just 1%, as per the survey released by the international rights group Oxfam hours before the start of the annual congregation of the rich and powerful from across the world in this resort town.

The situation appears even more grim globally, where 82% of the wealth generated last year worldwide went to the 1%, while 3.7 billion people that account for the poorest half of population saw no increase in their wealth.

Last year's survey+ had showed that India's richest 1% held a huge 58% of the country's total wealth — higher than the global figure of about 50%.

This year's survey also showed that the wealth of India's richest 1% increased by over Rs 20.9 lakh crore during 2017 — an amount equivalent to total budget of the central government in 2017-18, Oxfam India said.

The report titled 'Reward Work, Not Wealth', Oxfam said, reveals how the global economy enables wealthy elite to accumulate vast wealth even as hundreds of millions of people struggle to survive on poverty pay.

"2017 saw an unprecedented increase in the number of billionaires, at a rate of one every two days. Billionaire wealth has risen by an average of 13 per cent a year since 2010 -- six times faster than the wages of ordinary workers, which have risen by a yearly average of just 2 per cent," it said.

In India, it will take 941 years for a minimum wage worker in rural India to earn what the top paid executive at a leading Indian garment firm earns in a year, the study found.

In the US, it takes slightly over one working day for a CEO to earn what an ordinary worker makes in a year, it added.

Citing results of the global survey of 70,000 people surveyed in 10 countries, Oxfam said it demonstrates a groundswell of support for action on inequality and nearly two-thirds of all respondents think the gap between the rich and the poor needs to be urgently addressed.

With Prime Minister Narendra Modi attending the WEF meeting in Davos, Oxfam India urged the Indian government to ensure that the country's economy works for everyone and not just the fortunate few.

It asked the government to promote inclusive growth by encouraging labour-intensive sectors that will create more jobs; investing in agriculture; and effectively implementing the social protection schemes that exist.

Oxfam also sought sealing of the "leaking wealth bucket" by taking stringent measures against tax evasion and avoidance, imposing higher tax on super-rich and removing corporate tax breaks.

The survey respondents in countries like the US, UK and India also favoured 60 per cent pay cut for CEOs.

The key factors driving up rewards for shareholders and corporate bosses at the expense of workers' pay and conditions, Oxfam said, include erosion of workers' rights; excessive influence of big business over government policy- making; and the relentless corporate drive to minimise costs in order to maximise returns to shareholders.

About India, it said the country added 17 new billionaires last year, taking the total number to 101. The Indian billionaires' wealth increased to over Rs 20.7 lakh crore — increasing during last year by Rs 4.89 lakh crore, an amount sufficient to finance 85 per cent of the all states' budget on health and education.

It also said India's top 10 per cent of population holds 73 per cent of the wealth and 37 per cent of India's billionaires have inherited family wealth. They control 51 per cent of the total wealth of billionaires in the country.

Oxfam India CEO Nisha Agrawal said it is alarming that the benefits of economic growth in India continue to concentrate in fewer hands.

"The billionaire boom is not a sign of a thriving economy but a symptom of a failing economic system. Those working hard, growing food for the country, building infrastructure, working in factories are struggling to fund their child's education, buy medicines for family members and manage two meals a day. The growing divide undermines democracy and promotes corruption and cronyism," she said.

The survey also showed that women workers often find themselves at the bottom of the heap and nine out of 10 billionaires are men.

In India, there are only four women billionaires and three of them inherited family wealth.

"It would take around 17.5 days for the best paid executive at a top Indian garment company to earn what a minimum wage worker in rural India will earn in their lifetime (presuming 50 years at work)," Oxfam said.

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.

Apple CEO Tim Cook earned ₹654 crore in 2017

Apple Inc. Chief Executive Officer Tim Cook received a 74 percent increase in his annual bonus for fiscal 2017 as the iPhone maker posted higher revenue and net income, after a rare decline a year earlier.

Cook’s incentive pay totaled $9.33 million for the year ended Sept. 30, the Cupertino, California-based company said Wednesday in a regulatory filing. He also took home $3.06 million in salary and a previously disclosed equity award of $89.2 million, bringing his total payout for the year to about $102 million.

His top five lieutenants each got bonuses of $3.11 million, bringing their total compensation to about $24.2 million each, including salaries and stock awards. The equity compensation is composed of shares that vest solely based on the executives’ continued employment and others tied to the performance of Apple’s stock compared with other S&P 500 companies.

Apple has increased the proportion of performance shares in its equity awards, which boosts potential future earnings for the executives if the company outperforms its S&P 500 peers. History suggests that could be a good deal for them.

In 2014, executives including Dan Riccio, chief of hardware engineering, and former General Counsel Bruce Sewell received performance awards that paid out three years later at almost twice as many target shares as planned after Apple’s stock returned 69 percent over that span, including reinvested dividends. In August, Cook collected 560,000 shares when part of his 2011 mega-award vested because Apple outshined more than two-thirds of the S&P 500 over three years.

For the first time, Cook ran up a $93,109 bill for traveling on private aircraft on non-business-related trips. The Apple board stipulated this year that for security reasons the CEO should use private planes for business and personal travel, citing the risk given his high profile. Personal security costs were calculated at $224,216.

Apple shares returned 39 percent in fiscal 2017, more than double that of the S&P 500. In November, shortly after the start of the current fiscal year, the company released iPhone X, a long-awaited upgrade to its flagship product. Analysts said they expect the new handset to help accelerate revenue growth.

Cash bonuses for the executives paid out above their target as the company beat net sales and operating income goals.

How 29-year-old Akshaya Shanmugam made it to 'Forbes 30 under 30's list

29-year-old Akshaya Shanmugam, hailing from Chennai, recently found a place in the 'Forbes 30 under 30' list of entrepreneurs and innovators corresponding to the healthcare sector. Her company, Lumme Inc., has produced an innovative device that helps people against addictive behaviour, and it was made after putting machine learning, behavioural psychology and wearable technology together. This device makes a prediction of a potential relapse when it senses the movements and actions of a person who smokes.

According to a report by Times of India, Akshaya said,

"Our platform automatically detects addictive behaviour, predicts indulgence in addictive behaviour, and prevents it by delivering clinically validated interventions. It also helps individuals gain better insights into their daily life and helps them understand the why, how, and what surrounding their lifestyle choices."

After finishing her schooling at the Chettinad Vidyashram in Chennai, Akshaya did her engineering at Sundararajan Engineering College, followed by higher studies in the US. In the year 2009, when Akshaya was doing her PhD, she was working on the development of systems that assess and monitor health. During this time is when she met Abhinav Parate, who was also working on a wearables-related thesis. With his help and a little assistance from her professors, she started up her company 'Lumme' with an objective to attempt and solve addiction.

Smokers wear smart watches through their routine and this device observes and analyses their behaviour as they smoke on a given day. It predicts when the smoker is going to start lighting another cigarette and an alert is sent six minutes before the act.

A Forbes profile of hers says that Akshaya has raised $1.7 million in non-dilutive funding for Lumme, from National Institute of Health.

According to a Financial Express report, Akshaya is also the recipient of the Hluchyj fellowship, Special Tang award, David Wolf prize, Glass family demonstration award. She has also garnered business scholar award, the Eugene M. Isenberg scholar award for two consecutive years.

Cheque books are here to stay - News from Indian Government

India has no plans of scrapping the cheque book. The Finance Ministry said that cheques are an integral part of the country's payments ecosystem and form the backbone of trade and commerce. The ministry was compelled to clarify as multiple news reports reported that the cheque book facility may be discontinued to push digital transactions. Deccan Chronicle reports that cheque book usage has increased, especially among traders, after the centre's demonetisation decision last year.

Trump's Order: Punish Those Companies That Outsource


WASHINGTON: U.S. President Donald Trump said he has prepared an "economic-development" measure that would punish companies that globally outsource jobs.

The bill would provide economic incentives for companies, Trump said in an interview published on Tuesday, and reward firms that maintain jobs in the United States, and deliver punitive measures against those that move operations offshore.

The bill would provide economic incentives for companies, Trump said in an interview published on Tuesday, and reward firms that maintain jobs in the United States, and deliver punitive measures against those that move operations offshore.

"It's both a carrot and a stick," Trump said. "It is an incentive to stay. But it is perhaps even more so - if you leave, it's going to be very tough for you to think that you're going to be able to sell your product back into our country."

He did not specify what the rewards or punishments would be. The White House was not immediately available to comment.

Trump, a New York real estate developer reality television host, has struggled to translate his business experience into government success, failing to push through any major legislative victories.

The Trump administration has repealed a number of regulations, such as the Clean Power Plan, which was former President Barack Obama's cornerstone regulation to fight climate change. The head of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency said on Monday he would rescind the rules.

Infosys may ask nearly 1,000 Senior Executives to leave

Recently, about 400 senior executives of Cognizant accepted the company's voluntary separation package. Cognizant had announced this programme for directors, associate VPs and senior VPs a few months ago.

French IT services major Capgemini had reportedly asked over 35 VP, SVPs, directors and senior directors to leave in February.

According to sources, nearly 1,000 Infosys employees at job level 6 and above (group project managers, project managers, senior architects and higher levels) are expected to be asked to leave.

Large IT services companies are all in the process of laying off employees on a scale not seen since the 2008-10 downturn. Those taking the hit first are mid- and senior-level professionals — those with 10-20 years of experience.

Layoffs in the senior slab in the tech sector have been predicted by the Experis IT Employment Outlook Survey from Experis IT-ManpowerGroup India for October 2017-March 2018. The survey found very little demand for senior-level IT executives among employers.

In the survey, merely 3% of employers wanted to hire people at the senior level. The highest demand was seen for candidates in the 0-5 experience slab, with nearly 56% of the 500 employers surveyed displaying an intention to hire people in this group. Another 41% wanted to hire those at the middle level (5-10 years).

A major reason for layoffs at the senior level could filling up of vacancies internally rather than going for external recruitment. Another reason is automation taking away traditional team lead jobs becoming redundant.

For example, project leaders are increasingly being rendered superfluous as automation kicks in big-time and newer, more specialised roles emerge in India's $160-billion IT industry.

Peter Bendor Samuel, CEO of IT consulting firm Everest Group, said industry growth has slowed and the 'arbitrage first' segment (traditional IT services) is in secular decline. "When this is added to the pyramid factory model, which requires new freshers to be brought in every year to keep cost low, it results in an excess of more experienced employees," he said in an interview to ET in May.

Google Domains (a) domains.google.com Now Available in India for booking .com domain names at just 860 rs

Google has launched Google Domains for India. The domain registrar service is available in beta phase for Indian users. The key USP of the service is its simple and user-friendly interface.

The domain registration service will give neck-to-neck competition to leading domain registrars like Godaddy, Bigrock, Hostgator, Bluehost, Namecheap etc. The search engine giant claims that Google Domains offers the most user-friendly interface among all available options. Google is not offering any incentive or offers to early users.

Google Domains lists all the steps right from browsing the domain to setting it up in a user-friendly manner. Google is offering advanced options like hiding the customer's details from ICANN. The DNS management console offered by Google Domains is easiest among all other available options.

The best part about Google Domains is the easy integration with GSuite. Google Business email services are preferred by most custom domain owners in India. However, configuring GSuite services with a domain purchased from a third-party registrar like Godaddy involves a step-wise process. With Google Domains, one can simply click on the Setup email button and create emails with GSuite.

In the price competitive market of domain registration, Google is charging more than Rs 800 for standard .com domains. On the other hand, registrars like Bigrock and Godaddy have been offering .com domains at Rs 599 and .in domains for as low as Rs 99. Other domain registrars often throw in additional goodies like free email service and limited hosting space with the domain, Google is not offering any additional freebies as of now.

It is possible that Google might announce some launch offers. The service is currently in beta, you can expect a major announcement by Google when it launches the service for the public. The company is known for offering the best rates for businesses. Google had offered its business services of GSuite for free in 2011.

Google's biggest 'failures' as listed in Internet as on 18 September 2017

Now that the Apple euphoria has died down a bit, all eyes are on Google which will be unveiling its Pixel smartphones on October 4. There's a great sense of expectation from Google – perhaps its always there – to launch a smartphone which competition would be envious of. As a brand, Google is known for its collection of wildly popular products, from search to maps to Android, and now smartphones.

Although contrary to popular perception, the company certainly doesn't possess the Midas touch. In its arsenal, there have been a spate of failed products. Google Glass, which was supposed to wow the world, is notorious for making it to the Museum of Failure in Sweden. And who can forget Google Buzz, the company's much-touted social networking platform that almost failed to take off. Google's "miss" list includes many more.

Here's a list of Google products that failed to leave a mark...

Google Notebook was a precursor to Google Docs: You could copy and paste URLs or write notes that could be shared or published.

Google stopped development on Notebook in 2009 and officially shut it down in July 2012, transferring all data from Notebook to Google Docs.

iGoogle, a personalized homepage, was shut down in 2013. Created in 2005, iGoogle allowed users to customize their homepage with widgets.

Google said iGoogle wasn't needed as much anymore since apps could run on Chrome and Android.

Dodgeball, a service that let users check in at locations, was purchased by Google in 2005.

Its founders, which included Dennis Crowley, left Google seemingly on bad terms in 2007 and Crowley went on to build a very similar service, Foursquare, two years later.

Google Hangouts On Air — Google's live-streaming service — moved to YouTube Live in September 2016.

The service was originally created in 2012 when live streaming was catching on and was once used by President Obama and Pope Francis.

Google Catalogs, an interactive shopping program that digitized catalogs, was shut down in 2015.

Google shuttered the mobile version of Catalogs in 2013 and shut down the desktop version two years later.

Google Reader was a news-reading app that let users pull in stories from blogs or news sites.

Google announced it was shutting down Reader in March 2013 — much to users' dismay and outrage — and it was officially killed in July 2013.

Originally intended to give people access to health and wellness information, Google Health was closed for good in January 2012 after Google observed the service was "not having the broad impact that we hoped it would."

Google X, an alternative interface for the search engine, lasted exactly one day before Google pulled the plug.

A strange tribute to Mac OS X's dock, the site said: "Roses are red. Violets are blue. OS X rocks. Homage to you." Google X was quickly taken offline on March 16, 2005; the "X" name was soon repurposed as Google's research division.

10 of the most-funded startups to fail in 2017



Beepi

Shut down in February 2017

Raised $148.95 million in 5 Rounds from 35 Investors.

Beepi is a textbook case of a startup with a good idea — a marketplace for people to sell and buy used cars, which would be vetted, processed and delivered to the new owner by Beepi, bypassing the costly overhead and commission structure of car dealerships. And there was some solid execution — strong customer service was a big selling point. But ultimately the company was run badly.

It had been valued as high as $560 million in previous rounds of funding, after raising money from 35 investors, including Yuri Milner, Comerica, Redpoint, Foundation Capital, Sherpa



HomeHero

Shut down in February 2017

Raised $23.02 million in 3 Rounds from 7 Investors.

HomeHero shut down in February 2017 after its bid fell through to provide non-medical home care. CEO Kyle Hill blamed switching to W2 employees from 1099 contractors as the reason why the company lost its core identity, calling it an "inferior employment business" in a post on Medium.

The company had raised $23 million to connect home care workers with the families that need them. Along the way, it partnered with hospitals and launched a service that helps people monitor the health of their family members under the care of providers hired by HomeHero.



Auctionata

Shut down in February 2017

Raised $95.65 million in 6 Rounds from 15 Investors.

Auctionata shut down its operations after expected financing fell through. The company had previously raised more than $95 million since its founding in 2012 to broadcast online live auctions for fine art and collectables.

Live-streamed auctions have been a long-held ambition among many in the art world. Such a format has the potential to open the physical floor and all the bidding hype that comes with it to a much wider audience, and with that raising the bids for items on the block. But early attempts at live-streamed events failed to meet their estimates (so to speak...), complicated by slow broadband speeds, and much more.

Quixey

Shut down in May 2017

Raised $164.9 million in 4 Rounds.

Quixey launched as a mobile search company based out of Mountain View but later branched out to making a digital assistant for apps.

The company raised $164.9 million and, at one time, had a valuation north of $600 million. Yet, as the company was building its digital assistant, so was Apple and Google and startups like Viv, which Samsung would eventually acquire.

Once upon a time the company touted its ability to help users find content within their apps, eventually saying it has developed technology that can take you straight from the search results to personalized actions like showing nearby friends in Facebook or bringing up your own playlist in Spotify.

Yik Yak

Shut down in May 2017

Raised $73.5 million in 3 Rounds from 9 Investors.

The once-popular anonymous social network Yik Yak shut down in May of 2017. Apparently all the cyberbullies and unsavory content drove down the app experience for others. By the end of 2016, user downloads had declined 76 percent versus the same period in 2015, as TechCrunch reported then, and the company began laying off most of its employees.

The app faced problems that were predictable for any forum offering users anonymity and a means of chatting with one another. It was plagued by cyberbullies of every kind and even banned by some schools. But all the capital and advice in the world couldn't help it maintain its buzz.

According to Crunchbase, Yik Yak had raised $73.4 million in venture funding since it was founded in 2013, with a valuation approaching $400 million in 2014, its halcyon days

Indian Premier League media rights deal for Rs 16347.50 crore for next 5 years

In an intense bidding war in Mumbai, Star India bagged the IPL media rights for Rs 16347.50 crore for the next five years

Star India on Monday bagged the Indian Premier League media rights for a whopping Rs 16347.5 crore for a period of five years from 2018-2022. In an intense bidding war in Mumbai, Star India pipped 23 other top companies participating in the auction.

The IPL media rights auction, segregated into two categories -- broadcast and digital (internet and mobile) rights -- was expected to yield to the BCCI an estimated earning of over 20,000 crore through the traditional bidding process.

Bids were also invited for five other categories - US, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and rest of the world.

Earlier, BCCI Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Rahul Johri had said that the revenue generation from the upcoming IPL media rights auction could be "historic", considering the huge interest shown by various stakeholders.

A total of 24 bidders bought the bid document, including Facebook, Amazon, Twitter, Yahoo, Reliance Jio, Star India, Sony Pictures, Discovery, Sky, British Telecom, and ESPN Digital Media.

In 2008, when the IPL started, roughly six companies purchased the bid document for the first rights cycle.

All were television entities and, eventually, only two qualified for the bid -- the Sony-World Sports Group alliance and Nimbus.

Infosys promoters including Murthy & Nilekani offer Rs 2,038 Cr

Infosys promoters, including co-founders NR Narayana Murthy and Nandan Nilekani, have offered to sell as many as 1.77 crore shares, worth up to Rs 2,038 crore, in the company's Rs 13,000 crore buyback offer.
The promoter group - which includes most of the founders and their families - had earlier expressed their intention to be part of the company's first buyback plan in its over three-decade history and have offered to tender a maximum of 1.77 crore shares.

At a buyback price of Rs 1,150 per share, this could mean a windfall of Rs 2,038.94 crore for the promoter group, if all the shares tendered by them are accepted in the buyback offer.

The founders and families - classified as promoters group - held 29.28 crore shares, or 12.75% stake in Infosys at the end of June 2017.

Infosys' buyback offer of up to 11.3 crore shares comes at an almost 25% premium over Friday's closing price of Rs 920.10 a share. The record date is expected to be on or after October 25, 2017.

The Bengaluru-based firm has been in the eye of a storm over the past few months, with founders and erstwhile board members clashing over allegations such as corporate governance lapses and irregularities in Infosys' $200-million Panaya acquisition.

The public spat culminated in the sudden resignation of the then CEO Vishal Sikka and exit of four board members, including Chairman R Seshasayee. They blamed Murthy's "misguided campaign" for Sikka's abrupt exit.

On August 24, Infosys named co-founder Nandan Nilekani as its new non-executive Chairman, bowing to the demands of co-founders and large institutional investors.

However, the tensions between the two camps do not seem to be subsiding as Seshasayee launched another offensive last week against the alleged "personal attacks" by Murthy.

The two key players in Infosys' changing narrative - Nilekani and Murthy along with families - have offered to tender maximum number of shares in the buyback.

Nilekani, along with family, has offered to tender 58 lakh shares while Murthy, along with wife Sudha and two children, has offered to tender 54 lakh shares. S Gopalakrishnan and family have also offered 22 lakh shares while K Dinesh has offered 29 lakh.

Sudha Gopalakrishnan, wife of S Gopalakrishnan, currently holds the largest share in individual capacity among promoters group members with 2.14% shareholding. SD Shibulal will not participate in the buyback, but his wife and son have offered to sell over 14 lakh shares.

Threat to Wipro: Pay 500 Cr or will poison office
techgig | Posted By: Ajay Malick


Bengaluru cyber crime police have begun investigating an email sent to IT giant Wipro in which the sender threatens to infect the company with a chemical poison if Rs 500 crore is not paid in bitcoins.

Bengaluru cyber crime police have begun investigating an email sent to IT giant Wipro in which the sender threatens to infect the company with a chemical poison if Rs 500 crore is not paid in bitcoins. Security at its campuses has been stepped up as a precautionary measure.

The complaint was registered by Wipro authorities after an email was received at Wipro's Sarjapur office on Friday morning. The email sent from the id - Ramesh2@protonmail.com - claimed the sender was in procession of 1kg of Ricin and 2gms would be sent in envelopes as a warning.

"He gave two links to which Wipro should send the money in bitcoins. If the company failed to do so by May 25, he threatened to spread the poison Ricin in the cafeteria, toilets of campus and spread it using drones," said Ravi S, additional commissioner of police (crime).

Cyber police registered a case under Section 66 F of the IT Act (cyber terrorism). He added that cops are currently checking whether the links given are to a bank account. Ricin, a natural toxic protein, is an extract of castor bean from the castor plant and can be used as a biological weapon.

Wipro authorities confirmed the complaint in a statement: "Wipro confirms it has filed a complaint with local law enforcement authorities after receiving a threatening letter from an unidentified source. Wipro has augmented security measures at all its office locations. There is no impact on the company's operations. We have no further comment as the investigation is ongoing."

Police said that although security at the campus has been stepped up, some teams are looking at the possible involvement of insiders or former employees. Wipro had received a threat in 2013, wherein an anonymous letter threatened to blow up the company's campuses in Bengaluru, but it turned out to be a hoax.

800 engineering colleges to close in India
ET TECH | Posted By: Bharti Mittal


According to its website, AICTE has approved the progressive closure of more than 410 colleges across India, from 2014-15 to 2017-18. Twenty of these institutions are in Karnataka. A maximum number of institutions was approved for closure in 201617. Telangana, Uttar Pradesh, Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh, Rajasthan, Tamil Nadu, Haryana, Gujarat and Madhya Pradesh have the maximum number of colleges which have sought progressive closure. Failing to survive, private engineering colleges either seek progressive closure and ultimately shut down or turn into polytechnics or science and arts colleges.

Progressive closure means the institute cannot admit students to the first year in that academic year, for which progressive closure is granted; however, the existing students will continue.He also advised engineering colleges and universities to revise and renew their syllabus, which is the major cause behind the fall in the number of admissions and quality of education they impart.

With the quality of engineering education and balance in the number of engineering students and their employability being big challenges, AICTE has introduced the plan for teachers' training.u201cMost engineering college professors or lecturers are MTech or PhD holders. They don't usually have experience in teaching aspiring engineers. Now onwards, any engineering college lecturer joining anew will have to undergo six months of exclusive and compulsory training so that they can train future engineers better. Existing engineer lecturers have three years to undergo this training compulsorily," Sahasrabudhe said.

Smallest ever star in the known universe discovered - EBLM project

A star about the size of Saturn – the smallest ever measured – has been identified by astronomers.

Our discovery reveals how small stars can be.  Alexander Boetticher

The smallest star yet measured has been discovered by a team of astronomers led by the University of Cambridge. With a size just a sliver larger than that of Saturn, the gravitational pull at its stellar surface is about 300 times stronger than what humans feel on Earth.

The star is likely as small as stars can possibly become, as it has just enough mass to enable the fusion of hydrogen nuclei into helium. If it were any smaller, the pressure at the centre of the star would no longer be sufficient to enable this process to take place. Hydrogen fusion is also what powers the Sun, and scientists are attempting to replicate it as a powerful energy source here on Earth.

Reliance Jio - JioFiber Preview Offer will give 100GB data per month at 100 Mbps, official reveals site

Reliance Jio's JioFiber broadband service is expected to be unveiled around Diwali. Jio could offer 100GB of data per month at 100 Mbps speed for three months, under its JioFibre Preview offer. Post exhaustion of 100GB, speed will go down to 1 Mbps.

Reliance Jio's JioFiber broadband service is expected to be unveiled around Diwali. It looks like details of the service have accidentally been leaked on Jio's official website ahead of launch. The page went live for some time before it was taken down by the company.

Going by the leaked information, Jio could offer 100GB of data per month at 100 Mbps speed for three months, under its JioFibre Preview offer.


[smg id=16015 type=full]

Post exhaustion of 100GB, speed will go down to 1 Mbps. Reliance Jio will apparently ask for a seucrity deposit of Rs 4,500 for its JioFiber broadband service, which will be refundable.

Reliance Jio's JioFiber can be used to stream 4K content, something that has been talked about in the past as well. Users will be able to connect multiple devices to JioFiber to enjoy high-speed Internet. The site even lists a registration page where users can sign-up for Jio's JioFiber broadband service.

 People will need to enter their address details as well as personal details which includes city, pincode, address, name, mobile, email etc.

Depending on details, it looks like users can go for two options – to either register for JioFiber services or enhance Jio coverage in their building. This means that Reliance Jio is currently expanding its JioFiber broadband network across cities to provide maximum coverage.

Going by the list of cities available, Jio will most likely start with providing its JioFiber broadband service in cities like  Ahmedabad, Delhi, Hyderabad, Jaipur, Kolkata, Mumbai, Surat, Vadodara, and Vishakhapatnam.

A previous report in Economic Times suggested that Jio could offer 100GB data at Rs 500. In May, Reliance Jio tweeted out from its official Twitter handle saying the JioFiber Preview Offer is currently being offered on a trial basis in some cities. However, the company did not give out details on data plans. We'll have to wait and watch if the Jio is planning to roll out 100GB of free data at 100 Mbps speeds for three months under its JioFibre

Relaince Jio is expected to go for the disruptive pricing model, just like it did with the Jio mobile network. The company had earlier indicated that on the pricing front, it will offer "value for the customer." Meanwhile, rival Airtel is currently offering customers 1000GB data free for a year if they sign up for the broadband service via online. The offer is limited to users in Delhi and NCR. ACT offers 1GB per second internet speeds in Hyderabad with 1TB download limit at a rental price of Rs 5,999. The company has already expanded operations to Delhi and is offering 100 Mbps speeds.

Infosys is paying over Rs 1 crore to more than 1,800 employees

[smg id=16013 type=full]

[smg id=16014 type=full]

In contrast, of its 48,400 overseas employees 1,800 are already crorepatis in rupee terms. To be sure, the high salaries for skilled professionals in developed markets are a reflection of them being paid in foreign currencies and commensurate with several years of experience.

Indian IT companies are likely to hire freshers in the US initially. But even that strategy will not mitigate cost pressures for long as companies compete for similar talent.

Idea posts first full year loss in face of Jio offensive - May 2017

Bashed by a severe tariff war, telecom operator Idea Cellular today reported a consolidated loss of Rs 325.6 crore in the three-month period ended March 31, 2017.

The company had posted a profit of Rs 449.2 crore in the same period a year ago.

For Idea, this is the second consecutive consolidated loss in two back-to-back quarters as the company viewed the October-April period as particularly harsh and a 'period of telecom discontinuity'.

For the October-December 2016 quarter, Idea has posted its first-ever consolidated net loss of Rs 383.87 crore compared to a net profit of Rs 659.35 crore in the year-ago period.

"The Indian wireless industry witnessed an unprecedented disruption in the second half of financial year 2016-17 on account of free voice & mobile data promotions by the new entrant in the sector.

The October-April 2017 interval can be best described as Period of Telecom Discontinuity, permanently changing mobility business parameters," Idea Cellular said in a statement.

Reliance Jio made its disruptive entry into the Indian mobile market space in September last year by making voice calls and 4G data free as part of its promotional offer that continued till March this year.

Total revenues of the company declined by 13.7% at Rs 8,194.5 crore from Rs 9,500.7 crore it registered a year ago in the corresponding quarter.

Idea Cellular also posted its first-ever annual consolidated loss at Rs 404 crore for 2016-17 compared to a profit of Rs 2,174.2 crore in 2015-16.

Annual income of Idea Cellular declined marginally to Rs 35,882.7 crore at the end of 2016-17 from Rs 36,162.5 crore it reported at the end of the previos fiscal.

In an effort to retain its existing mobile subscribers, Idea said it was forced to reduce on sequential quarterly basis, its voice rate by 12.5% to 25.9 paise per minute compared to 29.6 paise in the previous quarter of 2016-17 as well as it dropped its mobile data rate by 27.6 per cent to 11.5 paise per megabyte compared to 15.9 paisa in the third quarter of 2016-17.

"However, the lure of free offerings by the new mobile operator resulted in lower than normal volume elasticity with sequential quarterly voice minutes growing by 10.3 per cent to 231.4 billion minutes versus 209.8 billion minutes in third quarter of financial year (FY) 2017," Idea said.

Idea Cellular also blamed tsunami of minutes terminating on Idea network from the new operator, resulting in overall higher ratio of incoming minutes recorded at below cost inteconnection usage charge rates" for fall in blended voice realisation rate.

The impact of free extended promotions was even more pronounced on mobile data business.

Idea witnessed a sequential quarterly decline of 6.4 million mobile data customers on the back of 5.5 million loss in October-December 2017 versus second quarter of FY 2017.

Its overall mobile data customer base receded to 42.2 million compared to 48.6 million in October-December 2017 period.

The 'non voice revenue' (including data) contribution to the 'overall service revenue' fell to 24.9 per cent as mobile data revenue contribution declined to 18.3 per cent.

"However, the company remains optimistic of revival of mobile data subscriber addition and data revenue in FY 2018 as wireless broadband prices become more affordable for higher adoption by the Indian masses across all socio-economic & geographic segments," Idea said.

Modifications in Aadhaar, PAN can now be corrected online - May 2017

Finance Minister Arun Jaitley had proposed to make Aadhaar mandatory for filing of the Income-Tax returns as well as for obtaining the Permanent Account Number (PAN).

In a big relief to people, the income tax department recently launched an online facility to correct errors (names and other details) in permanent account number (PAN) and Aadhaar. The department has put two separate hyperlinks on its e-filing website. The first option allows user to update changes in existing PAN data or for application of new PAN by an Indian or a foreign citizen. The second hyperlink will help individuals who want to update Aadhaar details by logging into 'Aadhaar Self Service Update Portal', using the unique identity number. Then, the individual can upload scanned documents as proof for data update request.

Earlier, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley had proposed to make Aadhaar mandatory for filing of the Income-Tax returns as well as for obtaining the Permanent Account Number (PAN).

According to the reports of leading news agency PTI, over 1.22 crore people already have Aadhaar-linked PAN but the number is very low as there are over 25 crore PAN card holders in the country, while Aadhaar has been issued to 111 crore people. As per statistics with the tax department, only 6 crore people file income tax returns at present.

Last week, the income tax department launched a facility to enable a taxpayer to link his Aadhaar and PAN. It required a person to put in PAN and Aadhaar number along with his name as per the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) data.

After verification from the UIDAI, the linking will be confirmed. In case of any minor mismatch in Aadhaar name provided, Aadhaar OTP will be sent to the mobile number registered with the UIDAI. Additionally, the income tax department has now launched a facility to correct anomalies in PAN or Aadhaar document.

Google makes changes to AdSense in a bid to increase transparency for website publishers

Google announced two changes to its AdSense network today that it says will increase transparency about how it deals with violations and removes ads from websites.

First, AdSense's technology has been changed so it can now remove ads from individual pages, instead of entire websites. Previously, Google usually removed ads from every page on a website after a policy violation, instead of just the pages with offending content.

Second, Google will launch a platform in a few weeks called the "Policy Center" to help website publishers understand the program's rules and fix violations more quickly.

In a post on The Keyword, one of Google's official blogs, Scott Spencer, the company's director of sustainable ads, wrote "as we roll out page-level policy action as the new default for content violations, we'll be able to stop showing ads on select pages, while leaving ads up on the rest of a site's good content. We'll still use site-level actions but only as needed. And when it's necessary, such as in the case of egregious or persistent violations, we'll still terminate publishers. Altogether, this means fewer disruptions for publishers."

Of course, this also means less disruption and more money for Google, since it shares revenue from AdSense with publishers.

AdSense's new Policy Center will give publishers information about how many violations their sites have, what issues triggered ad removals, and step-by-step instructions about how to fix the problem so they can start displaying ads and making money again. Spencer referred to this as a "one-stop shop for everything a publisher needs to know about policy actions that affect their sites and pages."

The Policy Center is intended for website publishers who use AdSense, but YouTubers who monetize their videos through the program will also be curious about how it affects them. That is still unclear, however: Spencer said in his blog post that "later this year, we'll be adding policy centers in other publisher platforms in addition to AdSense," but he did not specify which ones.

Many YouTube creators have seen their ad revenue drop dramatically since Google made changes to how ads are displayed on its ad network and YouTube. The changes, which include different default settings, more account controls for advertisers, and a hiring spree to develop new artificial intelligence tools, were implemented after companies began boycotting Google because their ads appeared next to offensive videos.

YouTubers, however, have complained that the new controls unfairly penalize even videos that adhere to the platform's policies and asked Google to be more transparent about how its moderation by people or algorithms work.

The biggest ransomware attacks hits Indian companies - may 2017

More than 45,000 computers in hospitals, IT organizations, railway station networks, ATMs and even universities across 74 countries have been severely affected by the WannaCryptransomware worm also popularly called Wcry. This is the biggest ransomware attack in recorded history.

The WannaCrypt vulnerability blocks windows files and users need to make payments towards the hackers to restore access. A certain worm spread across systems which run on Windows OS and installs this bug.

But it is critical to notice that Microsoft has already sent across patches around a month ago. But this bug has already affected many systems which had not installed the latest security updates.

The bug was earlier abused by National Security Agency (NSA) to spy on their targets across the world. But in April this year, one of their internal tools called Eternalblue was stolen and leaked online. After that it was used to hack many machines across the internet.

"The exploit known as MS17-010 was previously patched by Microsoft. However, Windows XP machines which no longer receive updates are at particular risk. Machines using current Windows operating systems which have not been patched with March 15 updates are also at risk," says Amit Nath, Head of Asia Pacific - Corporate Business at F-Secure Corporation.

In terms of WannaCrypt's impact on India, Saket Modi, CEO, Lucideus Tech says that this worm can have potential impact on the government. "Most government departments don't have specific different OS for its operations and the same risk factor applies to government too."

According to many independent reports, many Indian companies were affected. Amongst those were systems of Andhra Pradesh police department, manufacturing companies in Delhi, 2 sme's in Delhi and one big corporate house in Mumbai. But certain cyber security experts point out that the actual impact of the attack can be ascertained only when people try logging into their systems on Monday.

Similarly, Nath pointed out that no country is safe from this Ransomware as it can lead to data loss, compromise business and organisations efficiency leading to reputation and financial loss.

An official of the Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-IN) told ET that so far the agency has not received any reports about the impact in India. "'Our researchers are on the job and trying to figure out if there has been any impact in India," the official said. CERT has already issued an advisory alerting people about the spreading ransomware. "We had also issued an advisory in March, those people who would have acted on it, would be safe," said the official.

Meanwhile CERT-IN has also issued a vulnerability note on its website (CERTIn Vulnerability Note CIVN20170032 Multiple vulnerabilities in Windows SMB Original Issue Date: March 15, 2017) with a Severity Rating of HIGH on March 15, 2017 for possible remote exploitation of this vulnerability and to apply the patch released by Microsoft for the same.

Famous whistleblower Edward Snowden pointed out that "This is a special case. Had @NSAGov disclosed the vuln when they discovered it, hospitals would have had years -- not months -- to prepare."

18-year-old from Tamil Nadu designs world's lightest satellite

Eighteen-year-old Rifath Sharook, belonging to a comparatively unknown town of Pallapatti in Tamil Nadu, is all set to break a global space record by launching the lightest satellite in the world, weighing a mere 64 grams.

The satellite, called KalamSat, will be launched by a NASA sounding rocket on June 21 from Wallops Island, a NASA facility. This will be the first time an Indian student's experiment will be flown by NASA.

Speaking to TOI from Pallapatti, Rifath said it will be a sub-orbital flight and post-launch, the mission span will be 240 minutes and the tiny satellite will operate for 12 minutes in a micro-gravity environment of space. "The main role of the satellite will be to demonstrate the performance of 3-D printed carbon fibre," he explained. He said the satellite was selected through a competition called 'Cubes in Space', jointly organised by NASA and a organisation called 'I Doodle Learning'.

The main challenge was to design an experiment to be flown to space which will fit into a four-metre cube weighing exactly 64 grams. "We did a lot of research on different cube satellites all over the world and found ours was the lightest," he said. Rifath said the satellite is made mainly of reinforced carbon fibre polymer. "We obtained some of the components from abroad and some are indigenous," he said.

Reliance Jio to launch its Fiber to the Home (FTTH) broadband service

With its Jio 4G telecom services officially up and running, Mukesh Ambani-led Reliance Industries Limited is gearing up to launch its Fiber to the Home (FTTH) broadband service in India. The service is called Jio Fiber and it will rolled out as a Preview in the coming weeks.

The company is apparently looking to give its FTTH service -- to be called Reliance JioFiber -- the same treatment it gave to its 4G telecom services in the initial run. Which means, just the way Jio 4G was available via Preview in the beginning; Jio Fiber will be available via Preview as well. But while Jio 4G was available for free for one and all, subscribers who register for Jio Fiber broadband Preview will be required to pay a refundable security deposit of Rs 4,500.

While it's largely being said that Jio Fiber broadband, when up and running, would offer up to 1GBps of speeds, the company -- at least during Preview - will offer speeds of up to 100Mbps. While it's still not exactly clear whether Jio Fiber broadband Preview will have the same three-month usage window as Jio 4G Preview did back in the day when it was free, but, the service will come with an FUP of 100 GB after which the speeds will go down to 1 Mbps. Furthermore, Jio Fiber broadband Preview is expected to go live starting with Mumbai and hopefully other cities will follow in the days to come. It's not all that surprising when you consider reports that the company is already conducting trial runs in Mumbai and Pune.

Nothing of this is official for now, but, it will be soon enough. For now Jio Fiber's official website -- which hasn't gone live yet -- is India Today Tech's basis for this report. The website, as of the moment is hidden for the general public but India Today Tech has managed to get some screenshots. Since all the information is coming straight from the horse's mouth, we can expect Jio Fiber broadband Preview to commence shortly.
Although, if you recall India Today Tech had earlier reported about the trial that Jio had started for the Fiber service in Mumbai. That trial was dubbed beta and was kind of a precursor for the Preview that will come out soon. The beta was also selectively available, while the Preview is likely to be available in more areas, within Mumbai, as well as in several other cities.

Although India is now home to a large number internet users, majority of them connect to the web using wireless connections like 2G, 3G, and 4G that are neither as fast as a good broadband nor as reliable. However, the neglect of the broadband sector has resulted in a situation where the wireless networks are clogged and even the wired services are poor, with users getting low speeds. Of late though the situation has improved after the arrival of ISPs like ACT. Jio's entry into the fiber broadband is likely to help users even more.

The impact of Jio Fiber, even when it is in a very early stage, is already visible. Sensing tough competition from Jio Fiber, Airtel recently announced the launch of V-Fiber that offers consumers in select cities and areas speeds of up to 100mbps using the ADSL2 technology. At the same time Airtel has also started ramping up its Fiber To The Home services, trying to expand it to more areas in the country. Currently Airtel's FTTH service offers speed of up to 100mbps.

Meanwhile, Jio is is also gearing up to launch its DTH service with in-house smart TV boxes, but, there's very little information about them at this point of time.

Google CEO Sundar Pichai paid $200 million from Alphabet in 2016

200000000 US Dollar equals
12849000000.00 Indian Rupee

To our understanding its roughly about 1284 crore Indian Rupees is the compensation package paid last year to our Indian Google CEO Sundar Pichai.


Alphabet gave the award to Google's Sundar Pichai in January 2016, a few months after he succeeded Larry Page as Google's CEO.

Google CEO Sundar Pichai received a $200 million compensation package last year for running the internet company that makes nearly all the money for Alphabet Inc.

Most of the pay consisted of Alphabet stock that the company valued at $198.7 million in securities documents filed Friday. Alphabet gave the award to Pichai in January 2016, a few months after he succeeded Larry Page as Google's CEO. Pichai still reports to Page, a Google co-founder who is now Alphabet's CEO.

Page limits his annual pay to $1 because he already has an estimated fortune of $41 billion.

The stock that Pichai received will vest in quarterly increments through January 2020.

The 44-year-old Pichai also received a $650,000 salary last year in addition to personal security services and air travel valued at $372,000.

5 ways to handle an employee who does not work well with others

The success of a manager largely depends on whether the team members are able to work together as a cohesive unit. This requires the manager to establish a work culture that fosters team spirit and have clear and realistic expectations from both the team and individual members. Varuni Khosla finds out five ways in which a manager can pursue this goal.

Establish a team culture
How team members work with each other depends on not only the company's values but also the norms set by the manager.In case some members are unable to work with the rest, an intervention may be advisable by an external consultant but active and visible sponsorship of the manager. In this intervention, a psychometric analysis can be done, said Sudeshna Basu Roy, cofounder of Marg.

Initiate team building activities
Use fun activities to build connections between a problematic member and the rest of the team. "Our bodies can't function by sitting in a fixed position all day. Invest some time and energy into nurturing that team member, cultivating your culture & sprucing up the space you share by introducing unique ways to bond," said Praveen Rawal, Steelcase India's MD.

Involve the entire team
Managers should also have individual conversations with the rest of the team members for a diagnostic perspective. It can be damaging to single out a team member in front of entire team and it's imperative to understand the underlying reason for the negativity and provide additional support, said Tusharr Kumar, marketing manager,Ducati India.

Reassess and realign roles
In some cases, it may be a good idea to reassess and realign roles and responsibilities. "If one still feels the problem is not solved, look at revising processes like how team members communicate, meeting styles, the norms of engagement, etc. Build personalprofessional relationships through team-building," said Suchita Dutta, executive director, Indian Staffing Federation.

Have an honest communication
A lot of managers shy away from having an honest communication with team members. Most people assume because they spend time with team, it should count as communication. But not many pay attention to cues. "The problematic member may have tried to communicate concerns but may not have pushed beyond a point," said Praful Nangia, partner, Hunt Partners.

At Microsoft India, caregivers to get four weeks of paid leave

NEW DELHI: Microsoft India on Friday announced four weeks of paid caregiver leave for employees who are looking after immediate family members with serious health conditions.

Family caregiver leave covers care of a spouse/domestic partner, parent/in-law, sibling, grandparent, child, etc. Last year, the company enhanced its maternity leave to 26 weeks and added to it surrogacy and adoption leave.

Male employees are eligible for six weeks paternity leave which also covers parenthood through adoption or surrogacy.
"We want our policies to be inclusive and as empowering as they can be to allow our employees to do what they want to do as their family needs them," said Microsoft's HR head, Ira Gupta.

"And that person doesn't have to be a new-born. So, we wanted to introduce maternity, paternity and caregiver leave." Caregiver leave is breakable and can be used by the employee in any way through the year. Microsoft, which has about 8,000 employees in India—over a quarter of whom are women—offers 20 working days as earned leave, 12 days as sick leave, three days of bereavement leave, besides some public holidays.

Consultants said this is a good first step in the direction of keeping people at the workplace, especially women.

Accused Yahoo Hacker Had Lamborghini, Aston Martin at the age of 22

(Bloomberg) — A Canadian accused of hacking Yahoo! Inc. email accounts on behalf of the Russian government appeared in court seeking bail ahead of a hearing to determine whether he should be extradited to the U.S. for trial.

Karim Baratov, 22, was one of four people indicted by the U.S. government last month and charged with working for Dmitry Dokuchaev, a hacker for Russia's FSB security service. It's not clear whether Baratov knew he was working for the FSB.

The 2014 hack affected at least 500 million accounts at Yahoo, damaging the company's reputation and threatening a takeover bid from Verizon Communications Inc. Verizon cut its offer by $350 million to $4.48 billion following news of the breach.

Baratov, who was born in Kazakhstan and is a Canadian citizen, entered court in Hamilton, Ontario, wearing black sweatpants, black t-shirt, with his ankles chained. He put on a beige blazer as he sat down in the prisoner's box.

He told the court he lived with his parents until 2015. He said he had a Mercedes and a BMW while attending high school and started his own business protecting web servers from hackers in 2014. He said earned C$10,000 ($7,500) a month that year, less in the ensuing years.

At 20, Baratov said he moved into a C$642,000 home, and over time added a C$155,000 Lamborghini, a Porsche 911, an Aston Martin and another BMW to his car collection. His parents helped pay for the cars, he said.

Baratov said he had about C$260,000 of equity in his home when it was sold following his arrest. Baratov said he had no money in his personal bank account and about C$5,000 in his business bank account when he was arrested. Police found about C$31,000 in cash when they searched his home.

According to the U.S. government, Baratov was paid to gain access to 80 email accounts, including 50 Google accounts, belonging to Russian politicians and bureaucrats. He used spear-phishing attacks to target his victims, using fake emails to compel them to provide sensitive information, and would then sell their passwords to Dokuchaev for $100 each, according to the Justice Department.

The hackers were allegedly looking for people of political interest and others who might be vulnerable to financial fraud, and the list of victims included the White House and its military and diplomatic corps. They ultimately stole the contents of 6,500 Yahoo accounts in an attack the company called "state-sponsored."

The U.S. government is seeking to seize assets he is alleged to have obtained through illegal activity, including his black Mercedes Benz C54 and Aston Martin DBS.

Baratov's father offered to put up C$845,000 equity in his home, saying it represented his life's savings.

"It's not a risk," the father, Akhmet Tokbergenov, told the judge. "It's a great desire on my part and my wife's part to help him."

Three privacy tools that block your Internet provider from tracking you

It's on. Recently, the United States Senate saw fit to allow Internet Service Providers to sell your web browsing history and other data to third parties. The action has yet to pass the House, but if it does, it means anyone concerned about privacy will have to protect themselves against over zealous data collection from their ISP.
Some privacy-conscious folks are already doing that—but many aren't. If you want to keep your ISP from looking over your shoulder for data to sell to advertisers, here are three relatively simple actions you can take to get started.
Use HTTPS Everywhere

The Electronic Frontier Foundation's HTTPS Everywhere browser extension is one of the first things you should install. This extension requires that all website connections to your browser occur using SSL/TLS encryption. That means the content of what you're viewing will be protected from passive collection by your ISP. The only time the extension won't force HTTPS is when the site you're connecting to doesn't support the protocol.
It's a great little extension that starts working as soon as you install it. What it doesn't do, however, is stop your ISP from seeing which sites you visit. Only the contents of your communication are protected. So your ISP will know you visited YouTube, but not what you watched while you were there, or the specific pages you visited.
HTTPS Everywhere is available for Firefox (desktop and Android), Chrome, and Opera.
Get a paid virtual private network
Your next step is to subscribe to a paid virtual private network service—not a free one that collects your data and sells it to third parties for analytics, or uses ads to support its free service, because that would negate the entire point of all this. You want a VPN that you pay to keep your data private. This should cost somewhere around $40 to $60 per year.
A VPN is like an encrypted tunnel between you and the Internet. You connect directly to your VPN (a connection your ISP will see) and then all Internet browsing goes through the VPN's servers and blocks third parties from snooping. Once you've picked and configured a VPN, set it to start up automatically and funnel all your Internet traffic through there.
Choosing a VPN is a bit of a tricky business since you want a provider that collects and stores a minimum amount of data about your browsing. Freedome VPN pledges not to log your traffic and is run by F-Secure, an established and reputable name in Internet security. Some VPN providers offer helpful extra features, such as an Internet kill switch that immediately shuts off your PC's Internet access when your VPN gets disconnected.

You also want your VPN to protect against DNS leaks, which is a problem we'll get to next.
Adjust your DNS
The Domain Name System is how your computer translates a human readable website name, such as NYTimes.com, into a machine-friendly numerical Internet Protocol address. It's like the telephone book of the Internet.
The problem is that your PC is usually configured to use your ISP's DNS, which means your ISP sees all your browser requests. VPNs typically configure your PC to use their DNS, and there is usually a DNS leak protection feature that makes sure your PC doesn't ignore the VPN and use your default DNS settings.
Nevertheless, to be doubly sure you're not using your ISP's DNS, it's a good idea to set your PC to use a third-party DNS provider such as OpenDNS. We have a tutorial from 2011 on how to change your DNS settings in Windows 7. It works pretty much the same way in Windows 10.
A good start
Now you're off to a good start for protecting your data from a snooping ISP. It's not fool-proof, but you've taken a number of important steps. Once you're set up, consult IPLeak.net and DNS Leak Test (use the extended test for the latter) to make sure you're not revealing any data that you don't want to reveal.
Now all you have to do is hope your ISP doesn't block or throttle your traffic whenever you're using that paid VPN.

Bug in UPI app costs Bank of Maharashtra Rs 25 cr in one of India's biggest financial frauds

MUMBAI: In what is possibly the biggest financial frauds in recent years, NPCI today said Rs 25 crore has been moved out of Bank of Maharashtra (BoM) accounts due to a bug in its UPI application.

All the corrective steps have been initiated and the process of recovering the money from 19 banks where it was transferred to, is on, it said.

"Total amount of loss, as reported by BoM, is about Rs 25 crore. They've recovered some amount and some amount is still pending. They've filed a police complaint also and the investigation is on," National Payment Corporation managing director and chief executive AP Hota told reporters here.

Explaining the fraud, Hota said BoM had procured a Unified Payment Interface (UPI) solution from a vendor (reported to be city-based InfrasoftTech) which had a bug that resulted in the fund moving out of the accounts without the sender's account having the necessary funds.

"Even if the core banking has declined a transaction, the UPI at the bank-level used to send a success message to NPCI. At NPCI, even if the CBS said no, based on UPI of the bank, we used to do the clearing and settlement," Hota said, adding the fraud was first reported to it on February 22.

He said about 50-60 people in Aurangabad discovered this loophole possibly through trial and error method. "They have collected a good deal of money. They've accounts in 19 other banks. They're trying to recover money now," he said.

There were three other banks, including Bank of India, which had bought a similar solution from the same vendor but they've not reported any mishap, Hota said, adding thorough checks have been carried out.

The fraud was first reported in the media last week after a few arrests in Maharashtra, but the total amount transferred was under Rs 2 crore.

It can be noted that breach of card details due to a compromise at Hitachi's end last year, which led to a replacement of 3.2 million debit cards, had a financial loss of under Rs 2 crore.

Maintaining that it is up to BoM to take action on its vendor, Hota said NPCI has learnt a lot from this episode.

"The learning from this is that we're not allowing any bank to join UPI unless they've a thorough reconciliation process and audited their package by the best of auditors."

H-1B visas: Indian IT companies may get some more time

"This will improve the number of black, Hispanic and female workers in Silicon Valley who have been passed over in favour of the H-1B programme," it says.

The immigration reform bill, 'Protect and Grow American Jobs Act', is aimed at ensuring that US based companies consider American workers before hiring foreign workers who are currently employed at lower wages.

The bill, sponsored by California Republican Representative Darrell Issa, is now under review of the American House of Representatives.

The new season for applying for the H-1B visa starts on April 1 and the visas will be granted from October 1, according to people familiar with the matter.


US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) advises that "it is important to plan in advance if you will be filing for an H-1B visa that is subject to the annual H-1B numerical cap"."The visa aspirants are well aware of the USCIS advice. So, most likely they will plan in advance and apply for the H-1B visa before the deadline.


Most likely, the USCIS might continue with the current visa rules for another year," said an Indian American, who did not wish to be identified.

Do you have an itch to check Facebook all the time? It could be due to a brain imbalance

They found that individuals who displayed higher levels of problematic use of Facebook had a strong cognitive-emotional preoccupation (system 1)and a weak cognitive-behavioural control (system 2), creating an imbalance.

System 1 is automatic and reactive, quickly triggered, often subconsciously, in reaction to stimulus such as a sight of or notifications from social media, said Hamed Qahri-Saremi, of DePaul University.

System 2 is a reflective, reasoning system that moves more slowly, regulates cognitions, including the ones generated by system 1, and controls behaviours, said Qahari-Saremi.

The second system can help individuals control impulses and behaviours that are not in their best interest, he added.

Researchers found that 76 per cent of respondents reported using Facebook in class, 40 per cent reported using Facebook while driving.

As many as 63 per cent reported using Facebook while talking face-to-face with others and 65 per cent reported using Facebook at work instead of working.

Airtel offering best plans to counter Reliance Jio

MUMBAI: As Reliance Jio moves to open up its prime membership from April 1, Bharti Airtel is seen to be the most aggressive rival to match its prices, a research report has said.

Citi Research, a part of the Institutional Group, which also comprises the Citibank, says that all the incumbent telecom operators have moved to meet the Jio challenge, in various degrees, though Idea Cellular and Vodafone India have been behind Airtel in aggressiveness.

As part of Reliance Jio's free offer+ unlimited voice (off-net/on-net) and 2GB per month is given at Rs 149 and unlimited voice (off-net/on-net) and 1 GB data per day is available at Rs 303. In addition, the company is also giving freebies -- cashback and additional data on earlier payment for prime offer.

Bharti Airtel is offering unlimited on-net voice and 300 MB per month for Rs 146 and unlimited off-net/on-net calls and 1 GB data per day for Rs 349.

"Data was initially split equally between day and night time but now these limits have been removed. This plan, across incumbents, comes closest to Jio's Rs 303 offer," the report said.

Meet the Chennai man who brought Adobe Photoshop to masses via microsoft

NEW DELHI: Adobe Photoshop is the most popular photo-editing software today with nearly 10 million users. In India, if anyone knows the word 'computer', you can safely assume he would also know of Photoshop.

Even though his name appears second in the list of credits when you open Photoshop, very few know it was an engineer from Chennai who made Photoshop popular.

Before 1993, Photoshop was available only in Macintosh which was used by select people. Seetharaman Narayanan, senior principal scientist and one of the founding members of Photoshop, spread the software all over the world by bringing it to Microsoft's Windows platform which was used by the masses.

"Bringing to Windows led to mass usage of Photoshop in a few years as Microsoft expanded its reach globally dramatically. It also boosted Adobe revenue substantially," Narayanan told BusinessLine.

Narayanan grew up in Mylapore, Chennai, graduated from REC Trichy and joined Adobe in 1991.

Based in San Jose, Narayanan comes to Chennai twice a year. He was in the city recently to address an event organised by IIM Calcutta Alumni Association.

"We have only scratched the surface in India right now. As people get to understand that software is value, people should pay for it," Narayanan told BusinessLine talking about the subscription-based business model of Photoshop.

"I don't think people would pirate. If they derive value out of the software, I believe they will pay," he said.

Adobe's business in India is growing after it shifted Photoshop to a subscription-based model three years ago. Its photography plan is for $10 a month. According to Narayanan, if you make a living out of being a creative, $10 is not lot of money.

American H-1B visa programme has been suspended for six months

The US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced that in order to clear a backlog of regular H-1B visa applications, it is suspending for six months a programme that allowed some companies to jump to the head of the queue for quicker processing of H-1B visas by paying a special fee.

This is not a suspension of the H-1B visas, but only of the "Premium Processing", which allows companies to pay $1,125 to go to the top of the line ahead of those waiting for applications to be processed, the USCIS said on Friday.

"This temporary suspension will help us to reduce overall H-1B processing times", it added.

H-1B visas are temporary work visas for people with special qualifications and it is used mostly by Indian techies.

The "Premium Programme" suspension is to come into effect from April 3.

Under "Premium Processing", a decision is made on H-1B application within 15 days, while the regular applications take more than three months - period that has lengthened because of the surge in "Premium Processing" applications

Reliance Jio, Airtel, Vodafone and Idea: The 'free unlimited data' offers - 1 gb internet free on 4g speed every day starting 03 March 2017

Reliance Jio

Reliance Jio has gotten some of us used to the idea of 1GB free data per day . And the access to 4G internet and a total of 1GB 4G data per day at no cost. The way to continue to this free data party: Pay Rs 99 per year, become a Jio Prime member. Then get a Rs 303 recharge, which will allow the 1GB per day limit (after you cross this limit the speed is reduced to 128Kbps). Apparently Jio is now also offering 5GB extra data for the plan, though the official website doesn't mention this yet. Jio has a booster pack for 5GB of data is worth around Rs 201.

Even without the 5GB extra data, Jio's offer of 28GB 4G data for 28 days at Rs 303 for prepaid customers, and 30GB data for postpaid users in this same price band is a killer deal.

Vodafone

Vodafone has a similar offer where you can get 28GB data at Rs 342 or Rs 346, which are part of 'Welcome Back Offers'. The deal: 10GB data, voice calls of up to 300 minutes per day for Rs 346. The other offer of Rs 342 has 28GB of data per month with FUP of 1GB per day. Additionally, every customer who recharges with these plans will be whitelisted, and can then continue with the same plan for the next 11 months.

Airtel

Airtel has joined the fray as well. The prepaid recharge is a Rs 345 plan which promises 1GB of 4G data per day, along with free local, STD calls. But there's a condition on how to use this 1GB data: 500MB during the day, 500MB during the night. The time limit is March 31 for customers to sign up, and again just like Vodafone, this recharge will apply for the next 11 months once the deadline is up.

Idea Cellular

Idea Cellular offering unlimited voice and 500 MB of data a day for 28 days at Rs 348. However, this is not an open market offer, and Idea Cellular users will need to check if they are eligible on the MyIdea app. Also Idea Cellular is offering this to customers with low data usage, in order to encourage them to use more internet.

A JOBLESS MAN APPLIED FOR THE POSTION OF 'OFFICE BOY' AT MICROSOFT

A jobless man applied for the position of 'office boy' at Microsoft.

The HR manager interviewed him, then gave him a test: clean the floor. The man passed the test with flying colors.

"You are hired," HR manager informed the applicant, "give me your e-mail address, and I'll send you the application for employment, as well as the date you should report for work.

The man replied " I don't have a computer, or an email!"

"I'm sorry," said the HR manager. "If you don't have an email, that means you do not exist. And we cannot hire persons who do not exist."

The man was very disappointed.

He didn't know what to do. He only had $10 with him. Once that is spent, he won't have any money to buy any food.

He went to the supermarket and bought a crate of tomatoes with his $10.

He went from door to door and sold the tomatoes in less than two hours. He doubled his money.

He repeated the operation three times, and returned home with $60. He realized that he can survive

this way. He started to go everyday earlier, and return late.

He doubled or tripled his money every day. Soon, he bought a cart, then a truck. In a very short time, he had his own fleet of delivery vehicles.

Five years later, the man became one of the biggest food retailers in the U. S. He started to plan his family's future, and decided to have a life insurance.

He called an insurance broker, and chose a protection plan.

At the end of the conversation, the broker asked him for his email address.

The man replied: ' I don't have an email.'

The broker was dumbfounded. "You don't have an email, and yet have succeeded in building an empire. Can you imagine what you could have been if you had an email?," he exclaimed.

The man thought for a while, and replied, "an office boy at Microsoft!"

If you just lost your Job or Just failed an Interview Don't worry be Optimistic..... Good days are on the way and something better is reserved for you.

All you have to do is Explore, Innovate and Explore !!!

How to raise successful kids -- without over-parenting | Julie Lythcott-Haims - Ted Talks

! No longer available

11:50 th minute is the real awesome quote - True stuff in our life

Published on Oct 4, 2016
By loading kids with high expectations and micromanaging their lives at every turn, parents aren't actually helping. At least, that's how Julie Lythcott-Haims sees it. With passion and wry humor, the former Dean of Freshmen at Stanford makes the case for parents to stop defining their children's success via grades and test scores. Instead, she says, they should focus on providing the oldest idea of all: unconditional love.

TEDTalks is a daily video podcast of the best talks and performances from the TED Conference, where the world's leading thinkers and doers give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes (or less).

The last emoticon: WhatsApp block about to happen on iPhones and Android handsets

NEW YORK: As an earlier statement said WhatsApp will stop working on certain phones by the end of 2016, many users of older versions of iPhones and Android handsets are about to find themselves cut off from using the chat app, media has reported.

WhatsApp, with more than one billion monthly users, had earlier announced that it was phasing out compatibility with older phones in a technology upgrade.

According to a report in the Independent on Monday, WhatsApp said that the move had been made to ensure that the app could continue to introduce new features and stay secure, which relies on the app being used on newer operating systems.

In the developing markets where the chat app and older phones are popular, WhatsApp has faced a sharp criticism for its move.

WhatsApp had initially listed all BlackBerry models and some Nokia handsets among the handsets that would be blocked from the chat app. However, the company retracted late last year, apparently in response to complaints.

"We are extending support for BlackBerry OS, BlackBerry 10, Nokia S40 and Nokia Symbian S60 until June 30, 2017," WhatsApp wrote in an update to its blog.

The service will stop on any first, second, third or fourth generation iPad that has not been updated. Users need to update to iOS 9.3 to use the service.

With these changes, WhatsApp is expected to more deeply integrate encryption and other privacy services.

"Such technology stops messages from being read, and has led to WhatsApp facing criticism from governments who believe that WhatsApp conversations should be made public," the report added.

How Team Lucideus spent sleepless nights to make BHIM invincible

BHIM is initially available only on Android devices. By Monday evening, BHIM made it to the 'top free apps' chart of Google Play Store in India.

NEW DELHI: For about two months till the launch of the Bharat Interface for Money (BHIM), more than a dozen people at a New Delhi company slogged it out, spending sleepless nights to ensure that the app was safe and that the security loopholes were plugged before it went live.

This dedicated team comprised employees of Lucideus Tech, one of the cybersecurity companies that provided security for the app developed by the National Payment Corporation of India and launched by the Prime Minister on Friday.

"We literally worked all night for the last few weeks on the app. Over a dozen people at Lucideus were working exclusively on this," said Saket Modi, chief executive of the company. Lucideus has in the past worked with organisations such as ICICI Bank, Standard Chartered, IndiGo and KFC.

BHIM, the mobile app based on the Unified Payments Interface (UPI), is initially available only on Android devices. By Monday evening, BHIM made it to the 'top free apps' chart of Google Play Store in India, beating popular apps such as WhatsApp, Facebook and Facebook Messenger.

Lucideus, said Modi, was a natural choice to work on the security side of the app, given that it also worked on the cybersecurity assessment for the UPI common library, which is given to all banks to be embedded into their net banking apps.

The new app has three levels of security. Firstly, when a user opens BHIM for the first time, it gets bound to their device ID and phone number. The user also has to provide a PIN to unlock and enter the app.

Secondly, an authentication takes place between the bank and the user's mobile number registered with the bank. The third is the UPI PIN, set by the user, which will be required for every transaction through the app and its authorisation happens via UPI servers.

"In case someone replicates your SIM or steals your phone and places the SIM in a new phone, they would still not be able to do the transactions as they wouldn't have your UPI pin," said Modi.

Apart from over a hundred technical controls that the Lucideus team looked at, it also considered multiple scenarios where a potential breach could happen. For example, if you get a call during a transaction on BHIM, and hand over the phone to another person for the call, you will have to re-enter the app PIN after you disconnect the call.

Cybersecurity professionals aim to simulate all known vulnerabilities across different points of a possible breach. "However, there is nothing that can be 100% secured — there is always an unknown element, the known unknowns. But what can be done is to ensure that all known controls are tested for and to have an incident response strategy ready in case of a breach," Modi said.

Post November 8, when Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced demonetisation of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 currency notes, digital payments have been on the rise. The use of mobile wallets has also gone up. BHIM could, however, change that soon.

"BHIM is superior from a technology standpoint along with a convenience perspective in comparison to mobile wallets. The requirement of a third party (a wallet app in this case) is completely eliminated as users can now transact directly using their bank account without the need to upload or recharge money into an external wallet and without compromising on their bank account's security in any way," said Modi.

According to him, spending on cybersecurity has seen an "exponential rise" in the recent past owing to the large number of sophisticated hacks in the world. India also witnessed the hacking of Twitter and email accounts of prominent public figures last year, putting the need to be secure online at the forefront.

How my first startup ended in a loss of Rs 15 lakh and shut down in a year from Yourstory 2015

PARDEEP GOYAL ,  19 NOVEMBER 2015
1714 SHARES

I thought I would make millions through my startup, but I failed miserably. I read shiny stories of Flipkart and Zomato, but nobody told me that 90 per cent of startups fail within two years.

Mine failed in the first year.

Sometimes, I feel cheated but also acknowledge the fault was mine. I had believed only one side of the story. Today, I am going to tell you the other side of the story.

It was April 2013 when I started getting uncomfortable at my workplace. Thoughts of leaving the boring job were taking over and I was losing interest in my work. I had just returned from the US, and I asked my manager for some time in the pretext of setting up my home in India again. Truth be told, however, my real problem was unhappiness from my job.

I dreamt of starting something on my own but did not have the courage. I discussed with a friend and we decided to start a company. I put all of my savings in my startup. The first step we took was incorporating a private limited company and investing Rs five lakh each and dividing equity equally. We found a basement office in Gurgaon.

We wanted to solve problems related to schools, as we thought education is a billion-dollar industry. We thought we could build any product for schools and make big profits. After long discussions, we came up with the idea of ERP for schools; online software to manage everything from fees and inventory to communication with parents.

I was confident that we could easily hire people. We had everything going to build a good team: an office, money in bank account, hiring policy and most importantly a co-founder with recruitment experience of more than ten years. We met a few people we were interested in hiring. But, to our surprise, not one person wanted to join our startup!

My co-founder remarked,
I could have hired ten people for any other company by this time, I am not sure why people are not joining us.

Since we were from the corporate background, we spent few days on drafting new hiring policy. We introduced company incentives based on revenue and individual performance bonus along with basic salary.

We moved to our new office. We hired a fresher and after a lot of struggle we found someone who impressed us with his technical capabilities but we were doubtful of his managerial and leadership skills. He was a costly hire. We offered him salary plus company incentives if we made any revenue by the end of the year. We were feeling lucky with two developers. I architect the product and developers started coding without waiting for the front-end design.

It was an exciting time. Our product was taking shape. We managed to hire a designer but we compromised a lot with his skillset and attitude. We started feeling the heat of startup hiring. We wanted to complete the product as soon as possible so that we could start selling.
Then we started facing unexpected problems. Our junior developer was not performing up to our expectations so we had to ask him to leave. With a team of just four people, we completed the first version of our product.

We were confident that our product will sell like hot cakes once it will hit the market. We included all the features of top ERP products in the market to beat the competitors. However, we were not happy with the front end design and were continuously looking for a better designer.
Our first potential client (a known school principal) appreciated our idea and demo but put us on hold till she could hear from higher management. We sent her the sales material and thought we will deploy software in a few months.

By this time (six months) the cost of product development was:

Company incorporation: Rs 30,000
Office renovation: Rs 120,000
AC/fridge/inverter: Rs 40,000
Rent: Rs 91,000
Salaries: Rs 3,60,000 + Rs 1,00,000 + Rs 65,000
Travel, food, marketing material and others: Rs 1,00,000
—————-
Total: Rs 9,56,000
—————-

We decided to move our development office to Chandigarh where I would manage operations and my co-founder would handle sales by staying at Gurgaon.

This helped us.

Now our senior developer was spending more time in development rather than travelling between Gurgaon and Chandigarh.
We saved money on office rental.

I saved money on my living expenses
Then came a blow. Our designer scooted with the laptop.

We tracked him and recovered the laptop, but lost our only designer. I took the challenge and learnt the basics of web designing. We revamped the entire design in one month. The product came out nicely.

We started reaching out to schools but neither of us co-founders came from a sales background.
We struggled to get appointments
We contacted 10-12 schools without any results
Crossing the gatekeeper was a big hurdle
We found out that principals did not have decision power
The decision makers were never available in the school
Most schools admins do not check/respond to emails
Nothing happens for two to three months when selling to schools

We hired a person from Ahmedabad for sales training, but we were unable to sell our product even with more features and less cost, compared to competitors.

We found a few customers by leveraging references, but revenue was far away. My co-founder who took care of the sales said that some big schools wanted to buy our product if we could implement few more features.

I had a different opinion. I argued that we had enough features for any school to get started and there was something missing in the sales process. I thought we should focus on small to medium schools even if we earn less money. Conflict between us started arising.

We started running out of money, so we invested more into our startup. We hired a sales person from a big competitor. We felt we'd found the silver bullet because he gave us access to our competitor's product and told us the secrets of doing sales to schools. He worked with us for a month but could not crack even a single sale. His impressive sales record with the competition was due to the brand name.

We needed more money to survive.

My co-founder was busy chasing big schools that can pay good money in advance. He also started establishing contacts with political and influential people to win deals.

I started reading startup blogs and books and believed in lean startup methodologies and doing more with less resources. Unfortunately, my co-founder was still building our startup like a big corporate.

I proposed to reduce our expenses.
Bring our only developer from cash to equity (up to 20%).
Stop chasing big schools and focus on small schools (to reduce sales conversion time).
Target schools on city outskirts as they will be relatively easy to win over.
Fire the sales guy and spend all our time in sales.

But our vision was not aligned. At last, my co-founder took over the company and promised to return my cash if the company made any profits in the future.

Expenses till the end (11 months)
Initial six months: Rs 9,56,000
Salaries: Rs 3,00,000
Sales training: Rs 30,000
Rent: Rs 56,000
Travel, marketing and others: Rs 200,000
———————
Total: Rs 15,42,000
———————

By now we had wasted more than Rs 15,00,000 on a product that nobody wanted to purchase. We had only two paying customers, few on trial and a lot in the sales funnel. After a few more weeks of struggle, my co-founder had to join a job. This was the end for SchoolGennie.

Let me share what I learnt along the way:

Know your customer before building your product
We built our product based on the assumptions and feature lists of our competitors. We should have talked to our customers before building our product.

Know where to spend money and where to avoid

We spent most of the money on office infrastructure and employee salaries. We could have avoided 80% of expenses by working from home and hiring employees on survival salary + ESOPs.

We were avoiding expenses on the professional design of sales material, marketing tools, and paid consultancy. We should have spent money on the things that translate into more sales or leads.

If the primary source of your customer acquisition is your website then you should spend money on content marketing, sales deck, and sales pages.
If you acquire your customers offline then spend money on sales brochures and other printed material.

Get your hands dirty with the code

Non-technical co-founders remain clueless of technical know-hows.

I advise you to start coding even if you are non-technical. There might be some exceptions but generally a non-tech co-founder can take better decisions if he knew how things get implemented.

Joel, co-founder of Buffer shares why non-tech co-founders must learn coding.

Do sales, even if you are from a non-sales background

I was afraid of doing sales because I thought my co-founder is better at communication and public speaking. We were unable to close sales despite his good communication and HR background. The main reason was that we were not talking about the pain points of the customer but just trying to hard sell our product.

The sales process is not just about good public speaking but addressing the concerns of the customer.
Disclaimer: I am not suggesting that all co-founders should be doing all the things at all the time. They should be owners of their areas but at the same time they should have first-hand experience of all kind of jobs in a startup.

Take decision and trust your intuition

We started postponing tough decisions like spending budget of sales, hiring or firing an employee, offering equity to the employees, chasing big schools or small schools, offering a free solution or charge premium, and at last how to go our separate ways.

Since the closure of my first venture, I started taking firm decisions based on the available information at that time. You can never have 100% data available for taking any decision. You should be smart enough to derive a conclusion with 60-70% information and fill the gap with your intuition.

Don't stop learning

Alarm bells ring for a startup when someone starts behaving like an expert and refuses to learn new things. You are doomed to fail if you stop learning.

Money is just a by-product of a startup

I learned it very late, but some of you may have realised this by now. We entrepreneurs start a venture to solve a customer's problem or to explore our passion, and money is just fuel for our startup vehicle. If you focus on money, you would become short-sighted.

Focus on solving problems and keep your customers happy. The money will follow.

Be generous

The most important lesson from my entrepreneurial journey – be generous, be polite, be a giver.

Conclusion

This was the story of my first startup, but I feel most first-time entrepreneurs are on a similar path. I joined another startup as co-founder and it changed my life in a positive way. Now I am working with startups to help them unlock growth.

This recyclable paper bike helmet just won a prestigious design award

[smg id=16002 type=full]

James Dyson Design Award

Isis Shiffer, the inventor of the EcoHelmet.

Many cities around the world - from New York City to Buenos Aires - are investing more in bike share systems as a form of public transportation. But the bikes don't come with helmets, so riders must either bring their own - which can be cumbersome to carry around - or go without.
A new invention, called the EcoHelmet, may offer a solution. Made of paper, the device is collapsible, and is designed with bike share programs in mind.

Telangana police files case against online rummy website ace2three soon other rummy sites will come out

India's online rummy gaming sector, which is seeing increasing interest from private equity firms and global investors, could suffer a setback as some states are attempting to rein in gaming companies.

The Telangana police have filed a case against online rummy website ace2three.com based on complaints that the company was duping players by manipulating its software. This comes even as India's largest and only listed Removed firm, Delta Corp, which recently acquired the country's top poker site Adda52.com, is reportedly looking to buy Matrix Partners-backed ace2three.com.

Rummy Circle, Adda52, Classic Rummy and Junglee Rummy are among the other notable online rummy gaming firms in India that have attracted the interest of global investors.

Try to focus on the long haul & you will make better decisions: Zohos Sridhar Vembu

[smg id=16001 type=full]

Sridhar Vembu "Any successful company is bound to create an ecosystem. New companies create new jobs and that's what we want. Chennai now has a vibrant SaaS ecosystem."Sridhar Vembu is the original startup champion who built a multi-million dollar, global software services company from scratch without any VC money. Zoho Corp, started in Chennai but now headquartered in San Francisco and still self-funded, is one of the early companies that rode the SaaS (software as a service) wave.

Twenty years after he founded Zoho, Vembu has started investing in other startups, focusing on research and development-oriented companies in the semiconductor and medical devices space.

What is your assessment of the startup ecosystem in India?

SaaS as a space is crowded with a lot of players who are not making money. The industry is dotted with unviable business models sustained by repeated infusions of VC funding. The money is starting to run out.

In San Francisco, the mood is sceptical rather than optimistic — which company will be the next to roll down its shutters, not which company is raising funds.

For economic and fundamental reasons, the natural next step is rationalisation and consolidation. Today, most startups are running out of money because they are spending only on marketing and acquiring customers. In due course of time, you will see players become more like us.

We did it through internal development, others will use the consolidation route. When the fund well dries up, things will change. In SaaS, I have founders who approach me when their business is failing and they want to know if they should sell or pivot. This is an overcrowded market segment. The chances of success are higher when you have a differentiated product. There is a wave of VCs funding SaaS companies, but not durable companies. That's the wave I would like to see.

Do you invest in startups? What is your role in the startup ecosystem?

In the last three or four years, I have invested in four or five companies involved in intensive R&D work. They are in stealth mode and we will talk when we are ready. These are long gestation products. That means they're not the trendy things now, but that's where our focus is because we want world-class products to be built in India.

Today, we import most of our medical equipment, either expensive ones from US or cheap ones from China. Look at the film industry. We make more movies than any other country but all the equipment is imported. Does India not have the talent needed to build these products here?

Founders generally approach me for mentorship. We have calls or I meet them when I am in India. I share our learnings and guide them. A startup in Chennai has started a university similar to Zoho University, which will train and upskill students from ITIs and polytechnics. Talent creation is very important, something we have been persistent about and I tell founders the same thing.

What advice do you give your budding entrepreneurs?

Try to focus on the long haul and you will make better decisions. You will also stop chasing short-term or fashionable trends. A classic example is when a founder decides where he wants to set up base.

With a 10-year horizon in mind, the question one should ask is: Do I need to be in Bengaluru, or can I look at Mysuru or Coimbatore? That is what I asked myself when I wanted to set up a second development centre in India. I zeroed in on Tenkasi, not because I have any emotional connect. It has a sub-100,000 population, has accessible talent and basic urban infrastructure.

We have built a product that has global application in India's hinterlands. I always tell founders there is no instant path to success just like instant food is not sustainable for good health. Invest in skills and people. They stay longer and they perform better.

Many employees have left your company to start on their own. Some have competing products. How do you feel about that?

Any successful company is bound to create an ecosystem. New companies create new jobs and that's what we want. Chennai now has a vibrant SaaS ecosystem, and that started with Zoho. There is plenty of opportunity as the country grows. There is no time to be petty or strategise based on others' moves.

Snapdeal slips against its two main rivals, Flipkart & Amazon. Can it get its mojo back as om 06 Oct 2016?


What was not long ago billed as a two-horse race between Flipkart and Snapdeal in the $12 billion Indian e-commerce market has now become a two-horse race between Flipkart and Amazon. Snapdeal's market share dropped to 14% from 19% a year ago while Amazon's gained from 14% to 24% in the same period.

Flipkart remains the leader despite a fall in market share to 37% from 43%. Snapdeal, which moved to a marketplace model four years ago, is now playing catch up with its two main competitors. Bahl's bluster has since dried, possibly a direct consequence of the underwhelming performance of his company against competitors.

Snapdeal will run its attempt of attracting customers by its unbox zindigi campaign till December 2016

Check out Jackie Chan's 13.70 crore Embraer private jet as on 5th OCT 2016

Jackie Chan Embraer private jet collection.

Jackie Chan has a new toy in his collection.

Earlier this year, the movie icon took delivery of a new Embraer Legacy 500 business jet. This is not Chan's first private jet, nor is it his first Embraer. Chan, a brand ambassador for the Brazilian airplane maker, took delivery of an Embraer Legacy 650 in 2012. His new plane is the first Legacy 500 to be delivered to a Chinese customer.

"The Legacy 500 features our best-to-date technologies and it incorporates designs that maximize passenger comfort and fuel efficiency," Marco Tulio Pellegrini, Embraer Executive Jets' president and CEO, said in a statement.

Chan seems equally enthused about the newest addition to his fleet. "I'm so thrilled to receive this Legacy 500, a state-of-the-art executive jet," he said in a statement.

He continued:

In the past few years, my Legacy 650 has brought me fantastic traveling experiences and great convenience, allowing me to do more acting and philanthropic works around the world. I'm sure that the performance of the new Legacy 500 will again exceed my expectations, and become a comfortable mobile home and office for me.

According to Embraer, Chan is expected to use his Legacy 650 for transoceanic flights while the Legacy 500 will be used for shorter trips. Here's a closer look at Chan's Embraer Legacy 500:

Icici bank Frequently Asked Questions on Withdrawal of Rs. 500 and Rs. 1000 Bank Notes

https://www.icicibank.com/Personal-Banking/faq/withdrawal-of-bank-notes-faqs.page?

Why has the scheme been introduced?

The incidence of fake Indian currency notes in higher denomination has increased. For ordinary persons, the fake notes look similar to genuine notes, even though no security feature has been copied. The fake notes are used for anti-national and illegal activities. High denomination notes have been misused by terrorists and for hoarding black money. India remains a cash based economy, hence the circulation of Fake Indian Currency Notes continues to be a menace. In order to contain the rising incidence of fake notes and black money, the scheme to withdraw has been introduced.

What is this scheme?

Kotak bank FAQs for withdrawal of Legal Tender character of existing Rs. 500/- and Rs. 1000/- Bank Notes

Money School Lesson : Is Renting Always A Waste Of Money?

! No longer available

Published on Feb 6, 2015
If you're ready to put down roots for a long time and buy a house you can truly afford, owning has worked out very well for most people. But renting doesn't always mean you're just "throwing your money away". If you're disciplined with your finances, then renting can be a perfectly fine lifestyle choice in the short term without putting you behind financially. It can even make sense over the long term for very financially disciplined individuals. For a more detailed explanation, including a spreadsheet you can download to adjust the variables: http://wheredoesallmymoneygo.com/rent-versus-buy-calculator/

To start to understand when it can make sense, this video helps explain some of the variables that can affect the success of renting (and investing) as well as owning.

amazon 50$ blu r1 hd smartphone is in market this October 2016

Also motorolla coming with 100$ and 150$ smartphone in association with amazon.

Currently the fire devices is been altered and re sold by amazon in the name of blu r1 hd which has two variant 16 gb , 2 gb internal ram with expandable slot is costing 110$ i hope but with prime you get 50$ discount and you have to pay is only 60$ and the basic device comes with 8 gb , 1 gb internal ram with expandable slot up to 64 gb cost you 50$ only . Both these models comes with preloaded amazon cloud drive, photos and videos app and with lock screen ads every day morning you wake up on lock screen.


[smg id=15961 type=full]

The Blu R1 HD starts at $50, works on T-Mobile or AT&T, and will arrive on your doorstep in two days. It is, for all intents and purposes, an Amazon phone.

Not the Amazon phone, the Fire, that failed so hard a few years ago. The R1 HD is a phone made by another company, with a few customizations by Amazon, and sold by Amazon.


For Prime members who are fully entrenched in Amazon's ecosystem, from Photos to Music to Video to Cloud Drive, the Blu R1 HD comes preinstalled with every Amazon app from the factory.

Now, before you get too excited, you have to remember it's a $50 phone.

Amazon ads all up in your face


In June, Amazon announced a new program in which the company takes preexisting Android devices, preloads the complete suite of Amazon apps and tweaks the operating system. Those tweaks allow Amazon to push ads to the lock screen of the device, similar to what the company has long done with its Kindle lineup.

It's not all bad news. The ads fill up the lock screen when you don't have any pending notifications. But if you do have pending notifications, they just show up like any other notification.

It's jarring to see the ads at first, but after a few days I got used to seeing them every time I woke up the phone. If you flat out dislike the idea of ads on your phone, you'll want to look elsewhere. Also, know that you can't pay a one-time fee to remove them later like you can with the Kindles with ads.

Nokia bags 4G deployment deal worth $500 million from Bharti Airtel

500000000 US Dollar equals
33394475000.00 Indian Rupee

Which is 3339 crore Indian money worth of contract to deploy 4g in new circles across India.


NEW DELHI: Bharti Airtel, the country's leading telecom operator, has awarded a big-ticket 4G deployment and expansion contract worth around $500 million to Finnish telecom gear vendor Nokia. By giving this contract, Bharti Airtel is expediting its network expansion and ramping up capacities to counter the looming threat from Reliance Jio, which is currently offering free services in the country, industry watchers say.

Nokia and Bharti Airtel didn't share the value of the contract. However, a person familiar with the development said that the contract value hovers around $500 million.

The new agreement with Nokia will see Airtel expand the deployment of 4G technology in three new circles -- Gujarat, Bihar, and UP East -- telecom circle, in addition to six circles -- Mumbai, MP, West Bengal, Odisha, Punjab and Kerala circles -- it already serves.

Nokia will deploy its 4G FDD-LTE and TD-LTE technology across nine of the telco's circles in India including the regions of Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Bihar, Rest of Bengal, Odisha, Mumbai, Maharashtra, Kerala and UP East, serving major cities such as Lucknow, Ahmedabad, Patna and Siliguri.

Analysys Mason's head for India and South Asia, Rohan Dhamija said that the contract is reflective of the trends and technology advancements in data market. On demand side, consumer are going to use more data, while on the supply side, standards are getting evolved.

"Given the expected data boom, and carrier aggregation across FDD-LTE and TDD-LTE, this expansion becomes relevant for Bharti Airtel," Dhamija added. .

The new deployment will allow Bharti Airtel to provide improved coverage and faster mobile Internet access, while laying the foundation for the delivery of enhanced video services and other on-demand applications.

"We are pleased to continue to leverage Nokia's leading radio access technology and services expertise to expand 4G capacity and coverage and further increase the quality of service for subscribers," Bharti Airtel said in a statement.

Under the deal, Nokia said that it will also expand Bharti Airtel's 3G network in eight of the territories as part of this rollout and modernization of legacy 2G base stations.

"We have a long history of working with Bharti Airtel and with this latest agreement we have become the largest supplier of 4G for the company. This network expansion will provide the capacity, coverage and speeds the company needs to meet the next wave of data demand in India," Sanjay Malik, head of India Market at Nokia, said in a statement.

The 4G rollout uses Nokia's radio access with Single RAN technology for FDD-LTE and TD-LTE. The gear vendor said that it will provide professional services including network integration and network planning and optimization.

According to Nokia's 2016 MBiT Index report, India's 4G LTE device ecosystem reported an eightfold increase in 2015, while other statistics showed that access to news, video content, gaming and social media accounts for 60 percent of India's total mobile data traffic - and it is rising.

To address this growth, Bharti Airtel has recently acquired 173.8 Mhz spectrum across three spectrum bands that include 1800 MHz, 2100 MHz and 2300 MHz for a total of Rs 14, 244 crore, in the recently concluded spectrum sale by the government.

The telco further strengthened its pan-India spectrum portfolio and secured its spectrum requirements for the next 20 years, and has airwaves across 4G and 3G spectrum in all circles.

Speak Asia Online is Genuine and not a Scam or Fraud - Director sent to police custody till October 13 2016

The EOW claims that Speak Asia had duped more than 20 lakh investors to the tune of over Rs 2,276 crore by making them members at a fee of Rs 11,000 and were assured commission on new members and on filling survey forms.

Written by Sadaf Modak | Mumbai | Published:October 7, 2016 3:54 am
The EOW said Sharma was the 32nd arrest in the case. She was a director in three firms which were the franchise for Speak Asia. (Source: Reuters Photo/Representational)
FIVE YEARS after the first complaint was filed against firms behind the multi-level marketing scheme Speak Asia, one of its directors was arrested by the EOW. Renu Sharma, wife of Speak Asia CEO Manojkumar Sharma, was produced before the sessions court Thursday. Sharma's lawyers told the court her husband died in Singapore in 2014.
The Economic Offences Wing (EOW) claimed that Sharma was one of the directors and also a signatory authority in the company. Special public prosecutor Pradeep Gharat argued that Sharma had been involved in the transfer of over Rs 710 crore to Singapore. "She is one of the main accused in the case. The EOW had been looking for for her but she was not traceable at any of the available addresses," argued Gharat.
He told the court that Sharma had been declared a proclaimed offender and the process of attaching her property had also started. The EOW claims that the firm had duped more than 20 lakh investors to the tune of over Rs 2,276 crore by making them members at a fee of Rs 11,000 and were assured commission on new members and on filling survey forms. Gharat told court that the investors were told they would be given subscription to an international magazine which was actually printed in Dadar.
Ahmed Abdi, representing Sharma, told the court that her passport was with the EOW and that she was not absconding. Abdi told court that she had written to the EOW this year stating she was ready to cooperate with them. "She is a teacher by profession and the only thing that the police have against her is that she happens to be the wife of Manojkumar Sharma. There is no need for custodial interrogation since all the software data is with the police," argued Abdi.
The EOW said Sharma was the 32nd arrest in the case. She was a director in three firms which were the franchise for Speak Asia, an official said. The court sent her to police custody till October 13. Chargesheet has been filed against the accused who are out on bail.

who's collecting your data - You might be surprised to learn

Every company is a digital company, from the biggest tech companies to the neighborhood corner store. A large ecosystem of partners and suppliers enables those companies to provide the services they do. And then there's the customer, who is seeing more and more of their life become digital.

Most people understand that in order for digital services to work properly or stay free they may need to allow the services to track some of their data. For example, maps have limited appeal when location tracking is disabled. There's a trade-off between convenience and privacy with which most people are comfortable. That negotiation occurs between the consumer and the online site or service.

But what about the businesses that provide services for consumer-facing companies? The partners and third-parties that operate behind the scenes? Typically they're ISPs, cloud services or even content-delivery networks (CDNs), through which 45 percent of the internet's traffic passes. They kept the Olympic games streaming fast and uninterrupted. They're handling billions of transactions for e-commerce sites. What many people don't realize is that these third-parties could also be tracking and selling their online behaviors as data.

The FCC is cracking down on ISPs for selling user data without consent, but now some CDNs are also getting in on the game. Waiting for regulation to stop the abuse isn't the answer. All third-party services have an ethical responsibility to publicly and plainly disclose which data they collect. This should be available to consumers and to their business customers before signing contracts. And companies should insist that the third-party services with which they work follow these consumer-centric privacy practices.

With user data, less is more

Data collection can start out with good intentions. For example, online services can improve the user experience by knowing whether customers are using mobile or desktop devices to access their site. But data collection and retention can get more invasive when services begin to collect demographic data, like gender, to deliver content that feels a little too personal to the consumer.

It's time to demand that all third-parties hold themselves to a higher standard and disclose what they do with consumers' data.
 

For the provider, these benefits of less data actually accrue over time. If a provider doesn't keep the customer data, then the company doesn't have data to provide the government when faced with a subpoena. In addition, there is less data to protect from cyber attacks and data breaches. Internet service providers, and CDNs in particular, can do their jobs just as effectively without that data.

Be transparent and give control back to the users

More than 90 percent of adults agree that consumers have lost control of how their data is collected and shared online by companies, according to Pew research. It will soon be imperative that companies disclose information to their users about who has access to their data, how long that data is retained and how it might be combined with other data or reconstructed to target them with advertising. Technology giant Google leads the way in transparency around data collection, making it easy for people to choose which information they're okay with sharing and which they are not.

What's at stake for companies?

There aren't many laws in place governing which data can be collected or sold by companies or how long data can be retained. The regulations that do exist vary by state and aren't very rigorous. However, it's not wise for companies to rely on data collection as a form of revenue. The market is already showing signs of self-correcting as the popularity of online ad blockers grows. Additionally, the FCC might not stop at ISPs in its efforts to regulate data collection.
While some third-parties are content with hiding behind the data permissions a customer-facing service has with its customers, others aren't — and rightly so. This permission by opacity may be the status quo now, but it won't be for long. It's time to demand that all third-parties hold themselves to a higher standard and disclose what they do with consumers' data. Companies that resist the urge to collect, share and sell data that isn't vital to their service will ultimately be better off.

Google Allo passes 1 million downloads on the Google Play Store in 1 week launch

Google's new messaging app Allo was launched this week and even though many people are not fans of the app itself, it does appear to have been downloaded many, many times already. Not counting iOS, Allo has so far been downloaded over one million times by Android users...


As spotted by Reddit user HJain13, Allo has now joined the ranks of other leading apps that have been downloaded from the Google Play Store more than one million times. Google Duo, the company's brand new video chatting application released in August, has already been downloaded between 10 and 50 million times — so it shouldn't be long before Allo hits its next milestone.

In addition to Allo passing the one million download mark, it's currently holding the top position on the free apps chart in the Google Play Store. It will be interesting to see where in the chart it ends up once the hype dies down a bit and Google gets a chance to update and add new features to Allo.


#GoogleAllo hits #1 in the Play Store! g.co/getallo https://t.co/QHOILD7B95

8 online courses Computer Science students must consider!

These courses help computer science grads get a job!

Diksha Gupta, TechGig.com

Face it, a plain vanilla graduation in computer science doesn't get you a job anymore. You need to add extra skills to your profile to be attractive enough for employers. You need to get specialisation in any of the trending technologies, to be employable.

There is a huge demand of tech courses after graduation in computer science. Websites offering online tech courses are seeing huge traction from computer science grads in India. According to Kabir Chadha, India Country Manager, Coursera, "Indian learners come want to advance their careers and gain relevant job-ready skills. Currently, we have over 1.6 million learners from India, out of which almost one-third (31 per cent) have enrolled for computer science courses. With India being the world's largest sourcing destination for the IT industry, we expect this number to grow in the coming years."

While the list of tech course for computer science graduates is huge, there are some courses that are much in demand given the current IT trends. Check these out...

1. Algorithms: Design and Analysis:  Algorithms are the heart of computer science, and the subject has countless practical applications as well as intellectual depth.  This class is for learners with a bit of programming experience who want to learn the essentials of algorithms. Stanford University offers a course in Algorithms online, which is rigorous but emphasises the big picture and conceptual understanding over low-level implementation and mathematical details. After gaining the knowledge on algorithms, one can be well-positioned to ace technical interviews and speak fluently about algorithms with other programmers and computer scientists.

2. Python programming: With this course, one can get introduced to fundamental programming concepts including data structures, networked application program interfaces and databases, using the Python programming language. In the Capstone Project, you'll use the technologies learned throughout the specialisation to design and create your own applications for data retrieval, processing and visualisation. This course is offered by University of Michigan online.

3. HTML, CSS and JavaScript: This course allows you to learn the essential elements of web page development, covering HTML, CSS and JavaScript. No previous experience of these technologies is necessary, although it is helpful if you have some prior programming experience. This course covers HTML together with CSS and essential components of JavaScript, including variables, arrays, loops, events and functions. The course also explores more advanced elements of JavaScript control, including advanced use of functions, event control, array processing, and DOM manipulation. The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology offers this course online.

4. Functional Programming Principles in Scala: Functional programming is becoming increasingly widespread in industry. This trend is driven by the adoption of Scala as the main programming language for many applications. Scala fuses functional and object-oriented programming in a practical package. It interoperates seamlessly with both Java and Javascript. Scala is the implementation language of many important frameworks, including Apache Spark, Kafka, and Akka. It provides the core infrastructure for sites such as Twitter, Tumblr and also Coursera. In this course you will discover the elements of the functional programming style and learn how to apply them usefully in your daily programming tasks. You will also develop a solid foundation for reasoning about functional programs, by touching upon proofs of invariants and the tracing of execution symbolically. École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne University offers the course online.

5. Build Your First Android App (Project-Centered Course): In this project-centered course, you'll design, build, and distribute your own unique application for the Android mobile platform. We'll provide you with a set of customizable building blocks that you can assemble to create many different types of apps, and that will help you become familiar with many important specificities of Android development. When you complete the project, in addition to having a personalized app that you can use and share, you'll have the skills and background you need to move on to more advanced coursework in Android development. The course is offered by CentraleSupélec.

6. Introduction to Programming with MATLAB: This course teaches computer programming to those with little to no previous experience. It uses the programming system and language called MATLAB to do so because it is easy to learn, versatile and very useful for engineers and other professionals. MATLAB is a special-purpose language that is an excellent choice for writing moderate-size programs that solve problems involving the manipulation of numbers. The design of the language makes it possible to write a powerful program in a few lines. The problems may be relatively complex, while the MATLAB programs that solve them are relatively simple: relative, that is, to the equivalent program written in a general-purpose language, such as C++ or Java. As a result, MATLAB is being used in a wide variety of domains from the natural sciences, through all disciplines of engineering, to finance, and beyond, and it is heavily used in industry. Hence, a solid background in MATLAB is an indispensable skill in today's job market. It is offered by Vanderbilt University.

7. Data Structures: A good algorithm usually comes together with a set of good data structures that allow the algorithm to manipulate the data efficiently. In this course, we consider the common data structures that are used in various computational problems. You will learn how these data structures are implemented in different programming languages and will practice implementing them in our programming assignments. This will help you to understand what is going on inside a particular built-in implementation of a data structure and what to expect from it. You will also learn typical use cases for these data structures. The course is being offered by University of California, San Diego, Higher School of Economics.

8. Object Oriented Programming in Java: This course is being offered by University of California, San Diego. This is an intermediate Java course and is recommended to learners who have previous experience in software development or a background in computer science.  In the course, one can learn learn the fundamentals of Object Oriented Programming, how to leverage the power of existing libraries, how to build graphical user interfaces, and how to use some core algorithms for searching and sorting data. And this course is project-based!

How college loans exploit students for profit | Sajay Samuel - TED

! No longer available

Published on Jul 2, 2016
"Once upon a time in America," says professor Sajay Samuel, "going to college did not mean graduating with debt." Today, higher education has become a consumer product — costs have skyrocketed, saddling students with a combined debt of over $1 trillion, while universities and loan companies make massive profits. Samuel proposes a radical solution: link tuition costs to a degree's expected earnings, so that students can make informed decisions about their future, restore their love of learning and contribute to the world in a meaningful way.

Published on Jul 22, 2016
We're on the edge of a new frontier in art and creativity — and it's not human. Blaise Agüera y Arcas, principal scientist at Google, works with deep neural networks for machine perception and distributed learning. In this captivating demo, he shows how neural nets trained to recognize images can be run in reverse, to generate them. The results: spectacular, hallucinatory collages (and poems!) that defy categorization. "Perception and creativity are very intimately connected," Agüera y Arcas says. "Any creature, any being that is able to do perceptual acts is also able to create."

ஏனோ வானிலை மாறுதே...
மணித்துளி போகுதே...
மார்பின் வேகம் கூடுதே...
மனமோ ஏதோ சொல்ல
வார்த்தை தேடுதே.....

கண்ணெல்லாம் நீயேதான் நிற்கின்றாய்....
விழியின் மேல் நான் கோபம் கொண்டேன்....
இமை மூடிடு என்றேன்....

நகரும் நொடிகள்.....
கசையடி போலே
முதுகின் மேலே
விழுவதினாலே...
வரிவரிக் கவிதை
எழுதும் வலிகள்
எழுதா மொழிகள்....... எனது...!.

கடல் போலப் பெரிதாக நீ நின்றாய்.....
சிறுவன் நான்,
சிறு அலை மட்டும்தான்....
பார்க்கிறேன்...... பார்க்கிறேன்......!

எரியும் தீயில் எண்ணெய் நீ ஊற்று...
நான் வந்து நீராடும் நீரூற்று !.

ஓ ஓ ஓ
ஊரெல்லாம் கண்மூடித் தூங்கும்
ஓசைகள் இல்லாத இரவே.....!
ஓ ஓ ஓ
நான் மட்டும் தூங்காமல் ஏங்கி
உன்போலக் காய்கின்றேன் நிலவே......!

கலாபம் போலாடும் கனவில் வாழ்கின்றேனே....!

கை நீட்டி..... உன்னைத்...
தீண்டவே பார்த்தேன்...
ஏன் அதில் தோற்றேன்...?

ஏன் முதல் முத்தம்
தரத் தாமதம் ஆகுது....?
தாமரை வேகுது....
தாமரை வேகுது....

தள்ளிப் போகாதே....
எனையும் தள்ளிப் போகச்
சொல்லாதே....
இருவர் இதழும்
மலர் எனும் முள்தானே.....!

தள்ளிப் போகாதே....
எனையும் தள்ளிப் போகச்
சொல்லாதே....
இருவர் இதழும்
மலர் எனும் முள்தானே.......!

தேகம் தடையில்லை... என நானும்
ஒரு வார்த்தை சொல்கின்றேன்....
ஆனால் அது பொய்தான்... என நீயும்
அறிவாய் என்கின்றேன்....
அருகினில் வா.....!

(அடுக்கிசை)
கனவிலே தெரிந்தாய்
விழித்ததும் ஒளிந்தாய்
கனவினில் தினம் தினம் மழைத்துளியாய்ப் பொழிந்தாய்!
கண்களில் ஏக்கம்
காதலின் மயக்கம்
ஆனால் பார்த்த நிமிடம் ஒருவிதமான தயக்கம்
நொடி நொடியாய் நேரம் குறைய
என் காதல் ஆயுள் கரைய
ஏனோ ஏனோ மார்பில் வேகம் கூட
விதியின் சதி விளையாடுதே
எனை விட்டு பிரியாதன்பே.... எனை விட்டு பிரியாதன்பே
ஏனோ ஏனோ
ஏனோ ஏனோ
ஏனோ ஏனோ

அன்பே..
