About CES 2014

This was the first year in my life where I consciously waited for CES 2014(Consumer Electronics Show 2014). Previously I wasn’t much focused on the buzz during the time when CES was held due to huge reasons, I was in college days and I was taking time. Also I didn’t posted anything regarding CES during previous years anything in my blog.

Now it’s time to break the glass, I was anticipating Chrome OS in an LG laptop. This news particularly circulated in the internet very widely but this didn’t happen in CES 2014.

From my personal choice of productivity accompanied with affordable product of CES 2014 is the Asus Dual OS Tablet, Honestly I was surprised.This particular news which made me smile literally in this year’s CES was due to many reasons.

I already have an android device which is a tablet so I was thinking of buying a Windows Phone with my expenditure to try something different mobile OS. This lead me into continuous thoughts, how long will this OS parallel carry through? So this particular news was much special and also Tablet is an affordable thing for most people for a person who plans for spending on productivity-centric device. It was also a device which can be in 4 different featured lives when connected to a keyboard device.

Rest of things like LG G Flex curved phones, Curved Televisions, 4K displays, seriously isn’t as impressive to me as they portray. Do eyes of human beings really recognize pixels in anyways?

The curved displays have disadvantage of distortion for people who sit in side. Nokia and Microsoft didn’t play a major role in the show apart from Xbox, I am waiting for their bang formula. Let’s see how they turn up.

Have nice days fellows 🙂

Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder

The Window 8.1 was released and it gained much percentage of people to applaud for the improvements it done to Windows 8 OS. It is available in windows application store for 3.6GB ready download update or in some other site for the simple reason that, it might not be possible to switch on the computer to download the entire size in short time period.

The ISO disc image (Most likely) from external sites has the necessity of being having the Windows 8 serial key to continue the update of Windows.

For OEM versions of Windows Users, I being one among them didn’t have the product key by default, to solve this problem we need to download the freeware called

Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder.

This software will fix the problem of finding the product key which can be used for the installation of Windows 8.1.

Have a great time installing. 🙂

Curved Phones Concept

I actually didn’t know the purpose of mobile phones to be with curved screens. But to be frank when I was thinking about this, I did came up with a particular thing which most of the internet sites until today what I seen with my eyes never told. Samsung with a small video clip told its personal opinion about curved screens.

Do you think the curved screens are basically created for making the consumer’s face feel easy with the size of the mobile phone with the shape of facial muscles? That’s was I felt with the thoughts I had in my mind. Have your thought anything different?

If Yes, What is it? 🙂

Nokia & Microsoft

I felt it as good news for both Nokia and Microsoft. It was much predictable. Nokia was struggling directly with its competitors. It was actually a good decision for Nokia to be with Microsoft. Nokia and Microsoft have proven enough number of emotional attachments over the past which was much evident during the time when windows phone operating system was released. Nokia was the only company to release high-end smartphones with Windows Phone OS.

Windows Phone OS can prove it much preferable if they provide a section of much free application. And the primary application among them should be Antivirus. Of course since it’s not a much used OS for mobile phones there can be less number of mobile phone viruses. For the future, I believe free antivirus software would be the primary market takeover solution for Windows Phone OS to the world.

Let’s first see that in mobile phones, after that lets see whether Nokia releases tablet or not. 🙂

Samsung Galaxy Tab in a peculiar state

The video is about a peculiar state which happened with my Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 which my dad recently received as gift from one of his office colleagues. We had an occasion to reset this device by pressing the power button up to 10 seconds continuously at the end. But until and before that I was just analyzing the stuff of the interactions it made in this particular peculiar state. Watch the video if you want to find what is the peculiar state…:-)

For the first time in history of my life my face comes in one of the videos of YouTube. My English was worse in the video since I am currently an amateur with regard to speaking in video streaming. I will definitely improve in future.

About Windows 8

Its been officially the chat across the web that Windows 8 is a great flop. Not just the windows OS of PCs but also the Microsoft Surface and Windows 8 Phone also shattered in their race in bringing new technology.

 It’s already the world dominated by Android and Open source environment when it comes to mobile sector and Tablet sector. Windows has great lack of applications either it be Windows OS for Computers or Phones. And, the craziest thing I heard when I heard about Windows 8 is Bluetooth sharing is possible only with Windows devices with regard to windows phones. This concept is just the copy what Apple was making with their iPhones.

 This is just making alienization of devices. There is no necessity for copying this concept from Apple which was actually no longer an advantage for them too. In a world where equality is attained by people by their doings and capability now, this concept of working in operating system is aimed by Microsoft and Apple is been brought only for making ethnic barriers. Even a person who is doing a small job with is document editor or whatever software they use, Its unfortunately cannot be shared with people who belonged to Android devices. It is a well known fact with most internet users that each day 1 million users are activating android devices. And, I am very soon going to become a member of that large database with my new Samsung Tablet. People in the world always wish only to be in the larger community market and that’s the thing they missed focusing with joining hands with fellows.

 My country is India and when it comes to smart phones, the cheapest android smartphone which is sold roughly around just Rs.3600(1$ = 54 ruppes) by Lava Iris and on the either side Samsung Galaxy S4(Which is roughly Rs.35000). So, the android gives a chance for each and every consumer of their different circles of budget. There lies the greatest difference between them.

More on Mobile Phones

Cell phone, cell phones, cell phones recently I blog most about this tiny device. J

About 6 months ago my friend bought a great smart phone from Samsung for about approximately price of 10000 rupees (approximately 200$). Its Samsung galaxy but I am not highly sure about the type of galaxy phone he bought. Here is the fact, very few days ago his battery of the smart phone starts bulging and finally it s been bulged to the extent of the battery cannot fit inside the mobile phone itself.

The fact was mobile battery of him is no more of use since it intakes a charge only for about 10 minutes and then battery pisses off.

The reason behind these kinds of fault is definitely due to overcharging of battery.

There is my point. In India mobile phones have been greatly reached throughout the nation.

Internet has not been in the nation to a great level but it will show a great increase in the percentage of people who use internet in the future.

At the present time period about 10% of Indians use Internet. Smart phone users greatly use mobile for social networking and emailing. A recent survey show great results about that more percentage of Indians use smart phones for Internet access to things like social networking sites and emailing than Americans. It’s the percentage of people among the people who have bought Smartphone, apart from that there are only less number of users in India.

I like to give this info, I am not so sure that mobile battery has expiry date or something like that but, It is too common in places in the roadside even in my city, I am from Coimbatore (Southern Part of India) and many cities where one could see Nokia batteries sold like balloons for children. I will update the picture of this info later. These batteries are sold from dealers at cheaper rates and these salesmen will sell the goods for only the original rate for making profit. Its kindly.

Last but not the least mobile phone is very good to be chosen only from good branded industry which has good name. Rather those don’t go for buying cheaper phones.

There is a particular standard where a mobile phone can be called as “Green Phone” where the mobile is safer to use from radiations which are released from it. In this particular case, some mobile phones which have facility to use more than two mobile simcards are likely to be avoided.

There is no developed country preferring the toy mobiles of more simcard mobiles since it. Only for this reason people are asked to buy genuine products from reputed companies.

My Final Year Project

Finally I became a final year student in my graduation of Electronics and communication engineering. This is the year where I need to submit the abstract for the project which I need to device with the my dept (Electronics and communication) engineering concepts and create abstract for the present semester, Followed by moving on and working with it in the next semester. First step is choosing the area of interest unfortunately my area of interest is software programming. Hence I am interested in the programming part of the device I made and succeed. You may question me why I took Electronics, when I have Interest in software programming. But I need to say that I was pushed, but I was not guilty because I have chance to get software job. In the time period of when I finished my higher secondary school graduation it was 2009. That was the year when there was a huge crisis across the globe in the field of software. Hence the surrounding people around made impact on my choice of choosing the department for my college. I will now proceed with getting good job in Software Company after my graduation. So that’s not a great issue to be spoken about and also I didn’t say that I hate Electronics and communication Engineering.

The project:

So, at the present time when I am typing this post, I AM in the process of development a concept in embedded systems. The concept is about a mobile phone and computer interfacing device which is used for making users type faster in computer using T9 language support of mobile with computer for word processing. The question you might probably ask, why we need to substitute keypads mobile phones for typing. The question is too simple to explain. In India basically not only people from rural but also from urban cities people doesn’t get aware about new technologies which are available in the present world like Iphone,Ipad,etc. Cost is the first factor. Due to this reason people are unaware about many things with the usage of the hardware. But somehow today, Cell phones have reached the major population of the country.

People who knews English have great easiness in using the T9 Support of mobile phones for typing messages(SMS). On the other hand many people didn’t get easiness in typing in the keyboard. For this reason my concept of making the mobile phone and computer interfacing. This could be useful for slow keyboard strokers.

The first advantage which I also like to put in front is the recycling of Old keypad mobile phones which has support for T9 languages.

I have already stated in one of my previous posts in my blog – One of my post regarding Ewaste control which involves a technique of recycling of old mobile phones. In that post I have already quoted yet I need to state the same fact here.

Only 10% of the mobile phones which are abandoned by first hand person are received or reused by the second person after abandoning.  The rest are simply “Electronic Waste”.

This is the concept which I use in my project that lies under my project. My staff in charge of my batch need to approve it for my proceedings. Lets see what happens.

I will also blog about what has happened inside the review of my project to the staff in charge. Until then, Wait for that readers. Thanks for reading.🙂

About Free Online Storages

Google Drive was really useful. I was able to save many old files which I was thinking to take a backup. I was having about 700MB of data from old CD which consists of some free arcade games, joke applications and some little boy stuffs which I using in 2005 at my young age of non-internet guy. Now I saved it in the drive for precious memories of past.

SkyDrive of Microsoft offers 7GB online storage for hotmail users. This is a fair aspect for more space. Hotmail users are blessed with this particular aspect. I am not a hotmail user. I will quote the hotmail users with describing SkyDrive as “Newborn baby born with a silver ring” for that 7GB storage.

UbuntuOne is another online storage service provided by Ubuntu. I am a fan of Ubuntu operating system. I created an account in UbuntuOne a month and some days. What I landed was with some disadvantages. Firstly no multiple files can be uploaded in drag and drop, Probably since I didn’t used the software of UbuntuOne that was a reason I found out. For one particular reason, I was unfortunately disliking UbuntuOne(I am really sad to say this, Since I am a fan of Ubuntu OS) for one reason specifically.

I was unable to delete my user account in that. Let me explain about that, Take Gmail, Facebook or whatever as example, when we search the instruction of how to delete the Gmail account or Facebook account in a particular search engine. The first link which is found in the search engines results provides the desired solution for us. Take this particular thing for UbuntuOne. The things which I found in web were there was no easy way to delete the user account of UbuntuOne, we need to play hide and seek to find. And I found no best answer in web to do this successfully. A person in web can delete his or her account even for a security reason, these are also certain customer satisfaction which need to be.

Telling the negative critics is the necessity of a fan for anything for the improvement and fulfillment of the active relationship of bonding. I am a fan of Ubuntu OS, I was mesmerized with the User interface and that invited me for trying out or figuring out what’s peculiar here . But I landed in this “state of life with this”. I just shared this information to you readers. 🙂

For controlling electronic waste

In our present world of electronics. Today’s technology is tomorrow’s dust. For the past decade there has been a huge development in the field of cell phones. Starting from Camera, Radio, Infrared, Bluetooth, WiFi etc. But were thus the people reuse the mobile when a mobile has been abandoned. A report says that only 10% of the mobile phones are reused to the second hand. I recently done a small idea with one of my old mobile phone which for time being purpose for e-waste control. I presently have a Nokia phone with decent features of music player and camera. I also have a Basic mobile set of LG which is helpful only for messaging and simple data transfer such as bmp files of 128*128 which can be used as its wallpaper for mobile via messaging. This is one of the abandoned mobile which is present in my home because it goes to sale just for 300 rupees which is approximately $6(U.S) today(Date I am writing this blog post-(18.05.2012)). The basic mobile set of L.G was bought by my dad in the year 2007 for about 2500 rupees which is $50(U.S) Selling a mobile phone to approximately 10% is the only way but the battery was in perfect condition and more than many things, This mobile phone “doesn’t hang”. So, I simply planted a small idea to recycle the phone by using it at the time period of when we need less features for mobile for the particular period of time. For the past twenty days I was trying only this. I was having study leave for semester exams and I was only at home for most days. So there is no need for mobile camera since digital camera is the substitute for that in my home. For this reason I replaced the SIMCard of my Nokia phone to the basic mobile set where there is a need only for messaging and I was happy using it :-). I actually love using this mobile as I took initiative to control e waste to some extent. Then what I did with the Nokia phone? you may ask. I used it as a portable multimedia device for watching videos. After the end of the study leave I replaced the SIMCard in my Nokia phone  and I will wait for another time like this. It might sound silly for some people but I made it to make a useful thing out of abandoned things. 🙂
