Now Lock your vehicle using a Password

Have you spent sleepless nights worried about the safety of your vehicle? Well, now you can be at ease. G Sankar Narayana, a technician in the Indian army and currently attached to the Queen Mary's Technical Institute (QMTI) at Khadki, has developed a security solution to prevent vehicle thefts.
The kit, developed by Narayana, has the facility to unlock and start the vehicle by entering a password which can prevent vehicle theft. The kit priced at Rs 270 has been developed using parts available in the local market. According to the police, on an average 3,000 cases of vehicle thefts are registered every year in Pune, which has a vehicle population of 20 lakh.

Narayana belongs to 127 Sata Regiment of Artillery (ARMY). Following an accident in Bikaner five years ago, he has been placed in a low medical category (LMC). He then enrolled at QMTI for a rehabilitation electrician training course.

According to Narayana, the idea of the kit came while observing his family at home. "At home my wife forgets to switch off kitchen appliances and my son plays with these equipment. I always worry that he might get injured, so I developed a 'password kit to control the mixer grinder'. Now, switching on and switching off the grinder is far safer," he said.

What users should know about new internet protocols IPv6

Many web surfers don't know it, but the introduction of new internet address standards might change the way they get online.
Since the supply of usable addresses governed by the IPv4 standard (internet protocol, version 4) has been exhausted, IPv6 has now been introduced. This will allow a previously impossible variety of addresses, says Christoph Meinel, a professor at Germany's Hasso Plattner Institute.
But what does this change mean for everyday surfers? Here's an overview.
Why are IP addresses necessary?
In order for internet-capable devices to share information, they need a unique machine-readable address. These addresses are assigned based on a standard of internet protocols.
But, since humans have a hard time remembering these strings of numbers, websites are also labelled with domain names, like When these addresses are typed into browsers, special servers translate them into IP addresses for the benefit of the computers.
What is the difference between IPv4 and IPv6?
Until now, IP addresses have been assigned in blocks of four numbers with up to three numerals each:, for example. The new IPv6 standard won't convert the numbers into the decimal system, rather a hexadecimal system, recognized by its combination of numbers and letters.
The new standard can be recognized by its eight blocks, separated by colons - 2001:db8:0:0:0:0:1428:57ab, for example.

    Know your MLA,MP better : Association for Democratic Reforms (ADR)

    Association for Democratic Reforms (ADR) was established in August 1999 by a group of Professors from the Indian Institute of Management (IIM), Ahmedabad. It started working on building fair and transparent electoral and political processes in the country by filing a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) in August 1999 in the Delhi High Court asking for mandatory disclosure of criminal, financial and educational background of candidates contesting elections to the Parliament and State Legislatures, prior to the polls. In November 2000, ADR got its first achievement when the Delhi High Court gave its judgment in favor of ADR. The Government of India however challenged the PIL in December 2000 opposing the Delhi High Court. Several political parties also intervened in the matter favoring the stand taken by the government. After a long discussion and hearing, the Supreme Court of India in May 2002, rejected the Government of India’s appeal and asked the Election Commission of India (ECI) to issue orders making it necessary for candidates nominating themselves in elections to Parliament and State Assemblies to submit their nomination forms along with the affidavits containing the following information: 
    ·         Affidavits of candidates with their criminal cases pending against them, if any

    Today is Thomas Edison's Birthday : Greatest invention which enlightened the world: The electric Bulb

    Thomas Alva Edison (February 11, 1847 – October 18, 1931) was an American inventor, scientist, and businessman who developed many devices that greatly influenced life around the world, including the phonograph, the motion picture camera, and a long-lasting, practical electric light bulb. Dubbed "The Wizard of Menlo Park" (now Edison, New Jersey) by a newspaper reporter, he was one of the first inventors to apply the principles of mass production and large teamwork to the process of invention, and therefore is often credited with the creation of the first industrial research laboratory.

    First Electric Bulb
    Edison is considered one of the most prolific inventors in history, holding 1,093 US patents in his name, as well as many patents in the United Kingdom, France, and Germany. He is credited with numerous inventions that contributed to mass communication and, in particular, telecommunications. These included a stock ticker, a mechanical vote recorder, a battery for an electric car, electrical power, recorded music and motion pictures. His advanced work in these fields was an outgrowth of his early career as a telegraph operator. Edison originated the concept and implementation of electric-power generation and distribution to homes, businesses, and factories – a crucial development in the modern industrialized world. His first power station was on Manhattan Island, New York.

    Top 10 indian Recipe site

    Indian food is varied and distinct to the state and culture. It is amazing to notice how people accustom to the environment and climate conditions and adopt foods either by the local produce or suiting the climate. The quantity of tamarind used in the South per day could amount to the month’s utilization in the North. Spices, condiments and vegetables vary per state. With transport facilities and a seamless geography, people are nowadays transforming their cuisines into much variety. A Gujarati is equally found of rajma-chawal as a Punjabi adopts a oondhiyu.

    Here I am going to tell you some top 10 Indian Recipe website 


    Microsoft may launch Windows 7 phone in India this year

    Microsoft will launch its much- hyped Windows 7 phone in the Indian market in the later part of this year, a top executive of Microsoft India said Wednesday.
    According to Amit Chatterjee, managing director of Microsoft India (R&D) Pvt Ltd, the Global headquarters have not yet finalised the exact time of launch.
    "I don't think they have finalised on the exact launch details. But, I am sure it will come to the market this year," Amit Chatterjee told reporters during his maiden interaction with media after taking over as the MD of the company's largest development centre outside the US.
    According to him, the response for the phone was good, wherever it was launched.
    "It is said that nine out of the 10 users are recommending the phone to others. The key factor is about the applications. There are about 7,000 applications currently available. There is a developers' community of about 20,000 people all over the world," Chatterjee said.
    He said nearly 100 new applications are being added to the applications store every day.
    The mobile platform tools team of the Microsoft India development center has been contributing to development of the Windows 7 phone besides the developers' community, he said.
    While HTC has already launched a couple of devices to support the Widows 7 phone, Microsoft is likely to join forces with Nokia for exploring the Indian market, he added.
    Talking about Microsoft's search engine Bing, he said Microsoft has been developing Bing more as a decision making tool instead of a measly search engine.
    "A user will be able to take a decision after using Bing instead of just searching what he wants on the internet," he said.
    The Microsoft India development center here has eight focus areas being handled by about 1,600 employees. The center has so far participated in 270 patents, Chatterjee said

    Internet IP addresses will run out 'in the next 24 hours

    Growth of Internet-enabled phones like the iPhone and web use in Asia has seen a rapid depletion of IP addresses, which are going to run out in the next 24 hours.
    Every device, which connects to the Internet, is assigned a "number" but with millions of web enabled phones now online they are fast running out.
    IP addresses act as "phone numbers" to ensure that surfers reach websites and e-mails find their destination.
    The system, which had been set up in the 1980s, with a maximum of 4.1 billion addresses was supposed to never run out.
    But it does not mean the Internet will come to a halt once the addresses have finished, as a system called Internet Protocol version 6, or IPv6 has been created to replace version 4.
    "It will just be 'business as usual' if everyone gets their job done," the Daily Mail quoted John Curran, Chief Executive of the American Registry for Internet Numbers, one of five regional groups that dole out such addresses, as saying.
    Curran said only about 2 percent of websites support the new Internet Protocol version 6.
    The "end game", the distribution of the last five blocks, was triggered by the distribution of two of the last seven blocks on February 1.
    They went to the Asia Pacific Network Information Centre, the regional registry for East Asia (including India), Australia and the Pacific islands. (ANI)


    Difference between Android 2.1 and 2.2

    Android 2.2, codenamed “frozen yogurt” or Froyo for short, is the latest version of Google’s Android operating system for smartphones. It replaces the older version 2.1, labeled Éclair. In general, speed and performance has been improved in version 2.2. So let’s discuss the more specific differences between 2.1 and 2.2.
    Android 2.2 adds USB tethering or the ability to connect your smartphone to your computer or laptop and make it act like it’s your modem for Internet access. It can also utilize its Wi-Fi radio to act as a Wi-Fi hotspot for up to 8 other devices to connect to simultaneously. Another major update is the ability to install applications on removable storage. This ability has been desperately missed by Android users as most Android devices have a paltry amount of internal storage but can be expanded to almost limitless amounts. With this addition, the Android is now more like Windows Mobile than the iPhone.
    Also in version 2.2 is the addition of support for Flash 10.1. This should keep Android devices compliant with sites and applications that shift to using the latest version of Flash. This also affects video viewing as Flash is used by a lot of video streaming sites like Youtube. Developers would probably benefit from the changes and additions to the APIs of Android 2.2 as they now have a lot of control over the device. Changes were made to the graphics, UI, device policy, camera, and media framework APIs.

    TV signals to go digital by 2015

    The days of hooking a wire to get cable television could soon be over with the I&B ministry on Thursday setting a March 31, 2015 deadline for shift from analog to digital systems.
        This will ensure better quality picture and services, choice of channels and interactive services. The industry will benefit as the move is expected to bring greater transparency in subscriber base and reduction in carriage fees. “This is the way ahead for the industry,” a government official said.
        The proposal has been sent to broadcast regulator TRAI and will be put before the cabinet for approval. Digitisation, where the feed will be received through set-top boxes, is expected to be executed in phases and the four metros of Del
    hi, Mumbai, Kolkata and Chennai have to shift to digital addressability by March 31, 2012. Phase II will include 35 cities with population of more than 1 million like Patna, Chandigarh, Pune and Bangalore by March 31, 2013. Digitization will bring set-top box prices down
    New Delhi: Moves are afoot to digitize television signals. All urban areas are expected to digitize by November 30, 2014 and the remaining areas by March 31, 2015.
        Zee News CEO Barun Das said, “Digitization will help industry grow at an accelerated speed. It is the key to problems like distrbution bottlenecks and under-dec
    laration leading to loss of subscription revenue that broadcasters face today.”
        Industry insiders said digitization was the world norm and would bring prices down not just of set-top boxes but also carriage fees.
        Consumers are likely to spend Rs 1,000 for a set-top box but the monthly subscription could remain the same — around Rs 250-Rs 500 or even drop further.
