WinToFlash -- Make Bootable USB Installers for Windows

What is WinToFlash
There may come a day that optical drives are as hard to find as 5.25 floppy drives are today.
WinToFlash starts a wizard that will help pull over the contents of a windows installation CD or DVD and prep the USB drive to become a bootable replacement for the optical drive. It can also do this with your LiveCD.
You don't have to worry about scratches on the disc or misplacing your original media discs once you transfer their contents to the flash drive. The optical drive is quickly becoming a thing of the past, especially in office environments, as media is shifted to the cloud.
WinToFlash is a free and easy to use application that does something very useful: it helps you create a bootable USB installer for your Windows operating system. It basically takes your Windows installation disk and ports it to an USB stick.
Additional information on WinToFlash is available here.
The problem with having a Windows installation disk on a CD or DVD is that the aforementioned CD or DVD could get damaged. You could crack the disk or you could scratch it badly, thus making it unusable. Another problem is that it can be a bother to walk around with a CD or DVD in your pocket – especially when you take into consideration the fact that instead of a cumbersome CD or DVD, you could walk around with a tiny USB drive (or USB stick or Flash drive or whatever else you want to call it).


It is a lot more convenient to walk around with an USB installer for Windows instead of a CD or DVD. USB sticks are easier to carry around and they don’t get scratches on them which make them unusable. Those two facts alone are reason enough for me to want to ditch a Windows CD or DVD and move to an USB stick instead.

There is a very simple way to do so: get the right piece of software and you can easily turn a Windows CD or DVD to an USB installer. That “right piece of software” is the Novicorp-developed and appropriately named WinToFlash. What this application does is it takes the contents of a Windows installation CD or DVD and moves them to an USB stick, turning that stick into a bootable USB installer for Windows. So instead of using a CD or DVD to install the Microsoft-developed Windows operating system, you can use the USB stick instead.

Now, picture password to protect your online account!

Find it difficult to remember your password? Here's some good news -- researchers claim to have developed picture password for your online account, which will also help protect against hacking. An international team says that it's actually a new kind of login which relies on the fallibility of human memory to prevent phishing attempts at stealing one's account details, the 'New Scientist' reported. The researchers at Stony Brook University in New York have, in fact, come up with a system, called PhorceField, that makes it almost impossible to login without viewing the correct images. PhorceField asks users to create a graphical password by choosing four images in a particular order from a set of twelve -- you might choose pictures of a loaf of bread, a candle flame, and two more, for example. These images are stored in a secret file on computer that only the legitimate website can access. When one logins, one simply remembers which images to click on among a set of others that aren't part of one's password. A phisher who wants to trick you into giving up your PhorceField password knows nothing about the secret images, and so must present one with a huge number of possibilities in the hope of getting the right set of pictures. This means that one will struggle to identify the correct ones -- one might remember that the password includes a loaf of bread, but was it round or oblong? A close shot, or taken at a distance? Eventually, after a number of failed logins, you will just give up and leave the phishing site without ever having revealed your password, say the researchers. The researchers tested PhorceField on 23 users and found that 76 per cent failed to reveal even a single image from their password during a phishing attempt, and none revealed the entire password -- for once, being forgetful pays off. They will present their work at the Annual Computer Security Applications conference in Orlando, Florida, next month. Courtesy: ZeeNews

India may abolish roaming charges, plans nationwide MNP

The Indian government may abolish roaming charges and plans nationwide number portability, reports The Times of India, commenting on the draft National Telecom Policy 2011. It said broadband speeds will go up more than nine times in four years and consumers may get a say in the quality of services in case of disputes with operators. There is also a move to cut costs for value-added services, such as text messages, as the government and the regulator prepare an 'appropriate regulatory framework for delivery of VAS at affordable prices'.

Also, the mobile will become a device of empowerment and can double up as an identity proof, the draft says. The policy is moving from egovernance to m-governance as mobile telephony is now cheaper resulting in more people having access to phones.


Free domestic roaming - in other words, STD charges abolished Full number portability. Even if you move to another city, your number needn't change Broadband speed to go up significantly; broadband on demand by 2014 Rural consumers to get universal access by 2020 New technology to be available at lower costs Better consumer protection VOIP. While improving the overall quality of service is a key feature of the draft National Telecom Policy 2011, another focus is to shift towards convergence between telecommunications, IT, broadcast and electronics. The draft National Telecom Policy 2011 envisages that basic banking services could be accessed via the mobile phone. Mobile phones could also be used for services like school and college admissions and assignments, pension payments, utility bill payments, first level health services, cash withdrawals and deposits. A single number could be called for all government services, the draft paper said.

The idea is to treat IT and telecom as a basic necessity - just like health or education - and "work towards 'Right to Broadband'".

As part of the strategy, slow broadband connections with the policy aiming to double the download speed to 512 kilobytes per second (Kbps) and then boost it to 2 mega bps by 2015. But when it comes to other aspects, the draft reads like a statement of intent with timelines missing. For instance, it talks about a review of roaming charges "with the ultimate objective of removing the roaming charge across the nation".

Now, the plan is to identify performance standards and benchmark quality of service against the international standards. "To improve transparency, NTP -2011 recognises the need for formulating a separate Code of Practice for Sales and Marketing," the draft policy said.

The government also proposed to mandate provision for web-based full disclosure of area coverage by telecom service providers.

India's finally got its much hyped ultra-low-cost tablet, Aakash. The tablet runs on Android 2.2 (Froyo) and comes with a 7 inch resistive touch screen with 800x480 reolution and weighs 350 gm.

Aakash is a collaboration between the government and a British-based company DataWind. The tablet has a 256 MB of RAM, a 32 GB expandable memory slot and two USB ports.

The tablet has a 2100mAh battery which can reportedly last for 2-3 hours depending on the usage. The device is also said to be completely made in India, as according to a review, a sticker at the back emphasises the fact. Aakash also reportedly packs some preloaded apps, however, lacks the Android Market Place.

The tablet will be commercially available from November for Rs 2999. The commercial version of the tablet would have no duty waivers or subsidy, as in the government's version and come with added features like an inbuilt cellular modem and SIM to access internet.

The government will be acquiring the tablet for Rs 2250 from DataWind which will be supplied to the students across the country. The device will initially be made available to post-secondary students.

India lags behind fellow BRIC nations Brazil, Russia and China in the drive to get its 1.2 billion population connected to technologies such as the Internet and mobile phones, according to a report by risk analysis firm Maplecroft.

The number of Internet users grew 15-fold between 2000 and 2010, according to another recent report. Still, just 8 percent of Indians have access. That compares with nearly 40 percent in China.

Some 19 million people subscribe to mobile phones every month, making India the world's fastest growing market, but most are from the wealthier segment of the population in town

Google to take over MOTOROLA

Setting its sights on rival Apple Inc, Google Inc announced its biggest deal ever, a $12.5 billion cash acquisition of mobile phone maker Motorola Mobility Holdings Inc .
Google's biggest foray into hardware comes weeks after a failed attempt to buy patents from bankrupt Nortel, and gives it an intellectual property library in wireless telephony to wage war on Apple and Microsoft Corp.
But in buying Motorola, the Internet giant risks alienating the hardware partners that license its free Android software. Google CEO Larry Page sought to calm the jitters by stressing on Monday that Android will remain open to all.
"The danger is that other handset makers feel disenfranchised," said Nomura Securities global technology specialist Richard Windsor.
"Motorola is the weaker player. This could actually collapse the entire community."
Shares of Motorola Mobility jumped 59 percent, while Nokia's stock gained more than 10 percent on speculation the Finnish mobile company is now an acquisition target.
The deal -- which took Wall Street by surprise -- appears to mark a shift in strategy for a company that had focused on shoring up its Internet search and advertising empire with forays into video and social networking.
After being shut out of Nortel deal, Google Chief Legal Officer David Drummond wrote a blog post accusing Microsoft, Apple, Oracle Corp of colluding to buy up patents and curtail growth of its Android mobile operating system.

New Revolution in USB Technology : USB 3.0 ,Diffrence between USB2.0 and USB 3.0

USB  is most innovated ideas which causes revolution in field of computers,currently USB 2.0 is used in most of the computers which leads to a very high data transfer as compared to the older ones but now USB 3.0 is launched , next generation USB. USB 3.0 much faster and safe as compared to USB 2.0
New USB 3.0 products are 10 times  faster than USB 2.0 means data transfer speed upto 5 GB/ sec
Faster power transfer (900 mA) in USB 3.0 as compared to USB 2.0 (just 500 mA) means increase in speed of scanning by USB scanner and other equipments.
It also means that LAN connection will be replaced by USB 3.0 as it is much faster than LAN.
But if you want actual speed of USB 3.0 than you have to use both USB 3.0 equipment  and USB 3.0 ports, as in USB 2.0 ports, the speed of USB 3.0 equipments decreases and it will be same as USB 2.0 equipments or  you can use the USB card adaptors as shown above.

USB 3.0 is a great improvement to USB 2.0. The biggest difference is the speed at which it can communicate with computer’s . USB 2 had a maximum speed of 480 Mbps, which was very speedy at its time but now it might not be enough because we now have USB flashdisk drives which are 64 GB in size, cell phone and PDAs that have a lot of internal storage built in, and even at 480 Mbps a full transfer of data in between devices can take a long time. So now USB 3.0 has a speed of 4.8 Gbps, almost 10 times faster than USB 2.0. Now if we want to transfer files from a pc to a 64 Gigabyte flashdisk to full capacity, we can do it in under 20 minutes!!

E-filing of I-T returns for INDIAN government Income TAX Department: It's so simple!

You have just three more days to file your income-tax returns. If you want to do it without much bother, you should consider e-filing. It's simple if you take care of a few things.
You need to go to the website and download the relevant returns form (ITR 1 to 7) based on your sources of income. For instance, if your only sources of income are salary/pension, interest income and income/loss from one house property, then you can use ITR 1. The website explains who should use which.
Select the Excel version of the form. Very importantly, enable Macros in the form. People often fail to do that because the 'Enable Macros' messaging is not very clear on the website/form. A help file that gets downloaded with the Excel form explains how to enable Macros. If Macros are not enabled, many of the required fields in the form do not perform their required functions.
Read the other instructions on the website and fill up all the mandatory fields in all the forms. Particularly ensure that you have written your PAN number correctly. Pressing the `Calculate Tax' button on the form tells you how much tax you need to pay or how much you need to be refunded (you don't need to know anything about tax rates).

If you have taxes to pay, then these can be paid online through the website. Once that's done, details of the counterfoil of the tax paid challan must be entered in the Excel form that you downloaded.

Pressing the `Validate' button on top of each form tells you whether you have filled up the forms correctly. Once validated, press the `Generate XML' button on the top right of the form, and an XML version of the form gets created on your PC.

Now go once again to the e-filing website, and choose the assessment year for which you are filing (it will be AY 11-12, if you are filing for financial year 2010-11). You will be asked to register yourself, which again is a simple process. Once registered, use your login and password to login again, you will be asked to upload the XML file. The moment you upload and send it, you will have access to an ITR-V form, which is the acknowledgement form. You need to take a print out of this on a laser printer (so that the barcode on it is printed properly), you need to sign it and then send it to the Centralized Processing Center (address provided on website) by ordinary post within 120 days.

"e-filing is one of the best things to have happened," says Sunil Birla, partner in chartered accountancy firm BDO India. "You can do everything from home. No running around to income tax offices. It's possible to complete the entire process in 10-12 minutes. In our firm, what took 15 people to do now takes just 3 people."
If you file online, tax refunds will also happen much faster (within three months) than if you file paper returns. But for refunds, ensure that you fill up your address, email id and bank account details accurately. As per data provided by the Centralized Processing Center that is managed jointly by the I-T department and Infosys Technologies, more than 4.28 lakh refunds for assessment years 2009-10 and 2010-11 have not happened because of wrong address or bank account details.

Decades ago, Mahatma Gandhi taught us values of truth and non-violence however considering today's times when peace and love is the need of the hour, these values seem more relevant now.

View Contents of a Zip File Online with Google Docs

Consider this. Your friend sends you a 10 MB zip files as an email attachment and you are not too sure what files are inside that archive. It could be a slideshow with pictures of cute cats, that you would definitely not like to open, or maybe something more important.
 Now it is very simple you can just open that using GOOGLE doc. You need not to download it and then view by extracting it using winzip or winrar or any other tool to unzip it

That means you can browse the contents of an attached zip file online without having to download it. If there any Office documents or Photoshop files or even another zip file contained inside, you can view their content as well in the same Google Docs viewer window.
Google Docs can handle ZIP and RAR formats

Facebook started video calls

Close on the heels of Google launching its latest social networking venture Google+, Facebook is addiing video chat to its pages. The feature powered by the Internet phone service Skype will allow Facebook's over 750 million users to make video calls on the site. Facebook has also redesigned its chat feature, so that the people whom a user messages the most, show up first.
Here's all you should know about the all-new Facebook video chat: how it works, setting up, blocking people, who all can call you and much more.
To get started you need a webcam and microphones. If you and your friend both have webcams and microphones set up, you will be able to see and hear each other in real time.
In case, you call a friend who doesn’t have a webcam, she will be able to see and hear you, but you'll only be able to hear her.
You are required to complete the set-up the first time you try to call a friend, or the first time a friend tries to call you. Now, to get started, just click on the video icon at the top of your chat window.
To start set up, just click the "Set Up" button and follow the instructions given for your browser.
Now just go to the profile of the person you wish to chat with and click the "Call" button in the top right corner. If the set-up is done, the call should connect automatically. In case it doesn’t, call again by clicking the video icon at the top of your chat window.

Once the call is answered, you may have to wait a moment for your call to connect before the video call begins. As the person you call too will have to complete the set up.

Google launches new social networking site

Google has launched a new social networking site, Google+, for field trials. The site is designed to rival Facebook, which has now gathered over 500m users.
"We'd like to bring the nuance and richness of real-life sharing to software. We want to make Google better by including you, your relationships, and your interests. And so begins the Google+ project," said Vic Gundotra, Senior Vice President, Engineering in a post on the official Google Blog.

The new social networking site features +Circles, designed to allow users to share what they want with specific groups of people or social circles, instead of sharing with all friends.

"From close family to foodies, we found that people already use real-life circles to express themselves, and to share with precisely the right folks. So we did the only thing that made sense: we brought Circles to software. Just make a circle, add your people, and share what's new - just like any other day," said Gundotra.

The site also features +Sparks, an online sharing engine which is designed to deliver content from across the internet to users in 40 different languages, based on a user's interests.
Exciting Features :
: These days a phone is the perfect sharing accessory: it's always with you, it's always online, and it's how we stay close with our closest friends. We didn't want "just" a mobile experience, however, so with Google+ we focused on things (like GPS, cameras, and messaging) to make your pocket computer even more personal.
  • +Location, location, location
    In life, the places we visit shape conversations in lots of meaningful ways. If we call John from the airport, he'll likely ask about our trip. Or if Jane texts from a nearby restaurant, we might join her for dessert. With Google+ you can add your location to every post. (Or not. It's always up to you.)

    +Instant Upload
    Getting photos off your phone is a huge pain, so most of us don't even bother. Of course pictures are meant to be shared, not stranded, so we created Instant Upload to help you never leave a photo behind. While you're snapping pictures, and with your permission, Google+ adds your photos to a private album in the cloud.

+Huddle :Coordinating with friends and family in real-time is really hard in real life. After all, everyone's on different schedules, in different places, and plans can change at any moment. Phone calls and text messages can work in a pinch, but they're not quite right for getting the gang together. So Google+ includes Huddle, a group messaging experience that lets everyone inside the circle know what's going on, right this second.

+You :That's the Google+ project so far: Circles, Sparks, Hangouts and mobile.

+Hangouts is an onscreen social gathering tool, designed to combine an online meet-up with live multi-person video.

Hangouts lets you stop by when you're free, and spend time with your Circles. Face-to-face-to-face

The +Mobile application in Google+ lets users share directly from their phones and includes support for features like GPS, cameras, and messaging capabilities.

Google+'s +Location feature is designed to allow users to share where they are on every post they send out if they choose.
he +Instant Upload feature uploads photos directly from your phone as you are shooting to a private album in the cloud, with a user's permission, ready to share when the user wants to.
According to Google, +Huddle allows users to coordinate with friends and family via group messaging, which lets everyone inside the specific Circle know what's going on.
Google+ is currently available on the Android Market and mobile web.

Serach GOOGLE by uploading IMAGE as file : IMAGE Search by GOOGLE

Search by Image

Discover all sorts of content that's related to a specific image. Just specify an image, and you'll find other similar or related images as well as relevant results from across the Web.
For example, search using a picture of your favorite band and see search results that might include similar images, webpages about the band, and even sites that include the same picture.

How to search

There are a few ways to search by image:
  • Visit, or any Images results page, and click the camera icon camera icon in the search box. Enter an image URL for an image hosted on the web or upload an image from your computer.
    How to enter an image URL
    1. On any webpage, right-click an image and select the option to copy it. In most browsers, this option's name starts with "Copy image," except Internet Explorer for which you'll select "Properties" and then copy the URL that's then displayed.
    2. Visit, or any Images results page, and click the camera icon camera icon in the search box.
    3. Paste the copied URL into the search box
    4. Click Search
    How to upload an image
    1. Visit, or any Images results page, and click the camera icon camera icon in the search box
    2. Click the Upload an image link
    3. Click Choose File
    4. Select the image from your computer
    5. Wait for the file to upload, then click Search
    Tip: You can also drag and drop an image to initiate a search. Simply click on an image, hold down the mouse, and begin dragging it toward the search box. You should see a blue box appear, and then you can drop the image into that box.
  • Download a browser extension for Google Chrome or Firefox to search by any image on the web, simply by right-clicking on the image.
Search by image is optimized to work well for content that is reasonably well described on the web. For this reason, you’ll likely get more relevant results for famous landmarks or paintings than you will for more personal images like your toddler’s latest finger painting.

How it works

Google uses computer vision techniques to match your image to other images in the Google Images index and additional image collections. From those matches, we try to generate an accurate "best guess" text description of your image, as well as find other images that have the same content as your search image. Your search results page can show results for that text description as well as related images.

Sakshat Tablet to be Launched in June 2011-Laptop in just Rs 1500

Remember the Rs. 1500 Indian laptop? The one that got the world making fun of India in general and me never having faith in Kapil Sibal again?
The one that actually turned out to be an expensive storage device, and then somehow metamorphosed into a tablet?
It's being announced that the "Sakshat" (which sounds conspicuously dirty in Americanese), the $35 tablet codenamed 'Sakshat' is expected to launch by the end of this month.

While the Indian media is huffing up the desi-pride angle with talks of "Indian-iPad". there's very little for a complete tablet experience. And there's nothing desi about it; the tablet is made by Canadian firm Datawind Ltd.
The7-inch touchscreen tablet features a inbuilt keyboard, video conferencing facility, multimedia content, Wi-Fi, USB port, 32GB hard drive and a 2GB RAM. There's support for Open Office, SciLab and Internet browsing.

However, this means nothing for the aam-aadmi it was intended for, but there is a desi crop of real tablets worth checking out.
10,000 Sakshat tablets will be shipped to IIT Rajasthan by June-end, following by the launch of over 90,000 tablet units in the next 4 months.

Sakshat: Other Specifications

QWERTY keyboard, mouse and a minimum display of 7” colour LCD/TFT (touchscreen optional)
2 USB 2.0 ports and USB hosts
three hours
batteryless device
SD card slot (8GB expandable memory)
Support to connect LCD projector
Support for external hard disk drive (Minimum 32 GB)
Ethernet port
80% shock resistant

While the tablets will be priced at Rs 2,200, there are reports of plans for later subsidies of 50%. The 1500 Rupee tablet might go for Rs. 1100, and has been developed as a part of the National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology to bring together 25,000 colleges and 400 universities in the Asian subcontinent in an e-learning initiative.

New Internet Address look in coming 2012

The Internet's global coordinator approved the creation of website addresses ending in corporate names, triggering one of the biggest ever shakeups in how the web operates.
The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) voted overwhelmingly in favour of the proposal at a meeting in Singapore despite fears the shift would cause some confusion and favour large companies.
Websites will soon be able to end with anything from ".shop" to ".canon" after the group that manages Internet addresses approved what it called a historic change in a statement on its website Monday. The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, which until now allowed 22 suffixes including ".com" and ".org," will accept requests for almost any word in any language from Jan. 12 to April 12.
"This is the biggest change to domain names since the creation of dotcom 26 years ago,
Under the changes, businesses will no longer be restricted to the list of generic top level domains (gthat include .com, .net and .org when they apply to register a website address.
Canon, Deloitte and Hitachi Ltd. are among companies that have expressed interest in company domain names, while generic names will be auctioned to the highest bidders
Industry observers say global giants such as Apple, Toyota and BMW could be in the vanguard of launching websites with their own domain names, ending in ".apple", ".toyota" and ".bmw", as could a city or a trademark.
ICANN chairman Peter Thrush said at a news conference the new naming system will be a "tremendous opportunity for people to take control of this aspect of their branding and develop it in their own way."
ICANN chief executive Rod Beckstrom said applications for the new web suffixes will open on January 12 next year and close 90 days later.
The corporate domain names won't come cheap.It will cost a company $185,000 just to apply and there are a number of criteria that must be met before ICANN will give the nod for a firm to own the domain name of its choice.The fee is needed to recoup the costs associated with the new gTLD programme and to ensure that it is fully funded, ICANN said.
It would also weed out opportunistic applicants seeking to resell domain names for a profit after buying them cheaply, a problem in the earlier days of the Internet.

Export Email from Thunderbird to MS OutlookExpress

Normally Thunderbird support import of Email from OUTLOOK but it don't have option for Exporting as of now. There is no direct option to export to MS OUTLOOK formatThis process is a bit more complex . Outlook doesn’t directly import Thunderbirds email, however with the right tools, and some time, it can be done.The first thing you’ll need is a program called IMAPSize. It’s a free Windows application that has a built in tool called mbox2eml. This handy program is used to convert Thunderbird’s mbox email files into eml files. The mbox files are found in your Thunderbirds profile folder (usually in the mail -> local folders). If you don’t see any files with the extension mbox, then it’s the ones without an extension.
The downside here is that each folder you have in Thunderbird is a seperate mbox file. You have to convert each one. Anything in a sub folder will have to be converted too and you may start to loose your folder structure. Oh well, you can always put it back together later.
Once everything is in eml format, you must now startup Outlook Express! That’s right, Express. No need to setup an email account in there, but you should setup all your folders to mirror what you had in Thunderbird. Then, open the folders on your computer that were created from the mbox2email tool and drag the individual eml files into the corresponding Outlook Express folders. You can drag and drop as many eml files as you want, but you can’t drag in a folder. Once you’ve copied all your emails into Outlook Express, you can now import them into Outlook.Startup Outlook, create your profile and once that’s all setup, go to Import/Export, import from another application and choose Outlook Express.

Google Street View For INDIAN Cities: First Bengaluru - Start Searching your Street

When Google started GOOGLE MAPS service it was really innovative idea to trace the place and locate them. Then came revolutionary idea of GOOGLE EARTH.which is somewhat satellite view of earth and you can view place. Now there is another idea for GOOGLE STREET VIEW which will
take snap shot of your city street and you can

Street View in Google Maps lets you explore places through 360-degree street-level imagery, whether you're looking at locations in your town or across the globe. With Street View, you can check out a restaurant before going there, find beautiful places around the world to visit on your next vacation, or check out neighborhoods when you're looking to move.

On 26 MAY 2011Google announced that it will begin imagery collection in Bangalore Nrityagram Dance Village in , and will continue capturing various parts of Bengaluru over the next few weeks for the Street View feature in Google Maps.
Google cars and trikes will begin driving and taking street level photographs of public locations around the city in INDIA

The images will be made available at a later date in Street View on Google Maps.
Street View is a popular feature of Google Maps, already available in more than 27 countries. It allows users to virtually explore and navigate a neighborhood through panoramic street-level images. It is also available on Google Maps for mobile.

India is the 28th country to have street view, the first being the US which had street view way back in 2007. Just yesterday Google had announced listing of public transport buses in Ahmedabad and Delhi in Google maps.
In countries where Street View is available, the user can access street-level imagery by zooming into the lowest level on Google Maps, or by dragging the orange "Pegman" icon on the left-hand side of the map onto a blue highlighted street.
In addition to the cars, the Google Trike - a specially designed three-wheel pedi-cab with a camera system mounted on top - will start gathering images from select locations in the area such as the Nrityagram Dance Village over the next few weeks. The Trike has already collected imagery from dozens of famed places around the world, including Stonehenge in the United Kingdom, Pompei in Italy, Legoland in California, and Versailles in France.
Lynne Fernandez, Managing Trustee, Nrityagram Dance Village said, "We are very excited to be on Street View. I understand that the Trike can go off the beaten path to photograph some of the most remote and beautiful places on earth, so anyone can explore them from anywhere. It will provide a scenic virtual view of Nrityagram and that's the closest to actually being here!"
Vinay Goel, Product Head, Google India said, "We decided to start driving in Bangalore because it is the IT capital of India and feel that the IT savvy users will be able to leverage the benefits of the product to the fullest. Street View is useful for urban development planners, law enforcement agencies, househunters, and travelers.
It lets users check out restaurants before arriving, make travel plans and arrange meeting points. Businesses can also benefit from the Street View technology by embedding Google Maps directly into their site for free. Hotels can use it to show off the convenience of their location, and restaurants can use it to raise awareness."
Google has developed technology that effectively blurs human faces and number plates of vehicles to render them unidentifiable. Street View is designed to comply with all local laws including those related to security and privacy in India.
Vinay Goel added, "We are committed to balancing the needs of our users with concerns about security. At Google, we recognize the sensitivity associated with certain locations and are committed to working with relevant stakeholders to ensure that their concerns are addressed."

Microsoft previewed Windows 8 to customers-- First look of Windows 8

Microsoft recently previewed Windows 8 to customers, partners and media at the Computex show in Taipei. Vice President Mike Angiulo ran the system on tablets, notebooks and desktop systems made by Dell Inc, Asustek Computer Inc, and Quanta Computer Inc using chips and technology from ARM Holdings Plc, Qualcomm Inc, Texas Instruments Inc and Nvidia Corp.

Here are --- things you need to know about Windows 8 which Microsoft claims 8 is a reimagining of Windows, from the chip to the interface.
The tile-based Start screen replaces the Windows Start menu with a customizable, scalable full-screen view of apps. The design of the software is similar to the tile interface on Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7 mobile handset software. Similar to it, tiles in Windows 8 can be automatically updated to display information from apps on the computer’s start screen, so a weather app can tell the user that it’s forecast to be sunny without requiring them to open the application.
The Windows 8 demo showed that the new OS will run on a range of hardware devices from traditional PCs to laptops and tablets, using both touchscreen and mouse and keyboard commands. The company said that while the new user interface is designed and optimized for touch, it works equally well with a mouse and keyboard.

Underneath the new OS is the old Windows that most users are accustomed to. It will run old Windows apps. If the apps are not optimized for touch, it is just fine as it would run them in the old interface with a keyboard and mouse.
Windows 8 also offers users the ability to snap and resize an app to the side of the screen, so that they can multitask using the capabilities of Windows.
Windows 8 uses a different application programming model -- basically, HTML5 and JavaScript, which are used for Web apps today.
