Bitcoin Sinks after China restrics yuan exchanges

Bitcoin Sinks after China restrics yuan exchanges

According to BBC, Bitcoin fell to less than half the value it recently traded for, following report s of fresh action by Beijing last month to restricts trade in the virtual currency. BTC China said that local payment companies have been blocked form providing it with clearing services. It means that the firm the world’s biggest Bitcoin exchange in terms of trading volumes, can no longer accept yuan-based deposits. Prices tumbled following the news.

One Bitcoin was trading for as low as 2,560 yuan (421 US dollars), with Japan-based MtGox seeing the exchange rate for one Bitcoin fell from 717 Us dollars to as low as 480 US dollars in Wednesday’s trade. “A lot of people put Bitcoin’s rise over recent months to China where interest in it has going through the roof”, said Emily Spaven, editor of digital currency news site CoinDesk told the BBC. “People are getting frightened that with new regulations the country could now drop out of the ecosystem. Going forward, it’s certainly not the end of Bitcoin, but people have been panic selling”.

BlackBerry is going to launch BBM for Gingerbread in Feb

BlackBerry is going to launch BBM for Gingerbread in Feb

BlackBerry launched its popular BBM service for Android and iOS last year and ever since it went official, Gingerbread users have been demanding a version of the application that is compatible with the platform. And now we hear that an app for this operating system is on its way into the Google Play store.

The company itself spilled the beans regarding the new version of the instant messenger through a post on its official blog. It says that the app will be compatible with devices running Gingerbread version 2.3.3 or later and the beta version can be expected to be released sometime in February. The previously released BBM for Android application was compliant with gadgets based on Ice Cream Sandwich or higher platforms.

The developers at BlackBerry have been busy designing the application for a few months now and it goes without saying that the version will make the instant messenger available to more than a few million people around the globe. Even though Google has already released the KitKat OS, Gingerbread continues to have a 21 percent share in the Android territory.

You may already know that BlackBerry Messenger or BBM, an instant messaging service, recently went cross platform. Additionally, there are reports doing the rounds of the web that the Android and iOS versions are up for an update that will tag along support for voice calls and messages as well as BBM Channels.

MIT prepared a tracking system(WiTrack) that can work through walls

MIT prepared a tracking system(WiTrack) that can work through walls

Research team at MIT’s (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) in CSAIL ( Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory) prepared a high-resolution 3D motion tracking system which can work  through walls. From a static location connected to a computer , the system can track you as you walk around the house and even if you hide behind the wall. This system has a superb resolution by which it can understand the gestures of the body ( like if you lift your hand) as well.

This system is known as WiTrack which stands for Wireless Tracking. WiTrack is more cost-effective and the simple combination of hardware and software than Microsoft tracking system called Kinect. Microsoft Kinect tracking system tracks via infrared cameras which can’t track the person or object behind the wall. Such technology is known as computer vision. In order to develop the results from infrared cameras, Kinect processed through complex algorithm whereas in WiTrack process is pretty simple because cameras aren't used in it.

MIT prepared a tracking system(WiTrack) that can work through walls

WiTrack tracks you or an object with the help of radio waves. These radio waves are so low-power. According to research team, these waves are 100 times weaker than WiFi waves and 1000 times weaker than mobile waves. WiTrack consists of four antennae — one that transmits radio waves, and three receivers. According to Fadel Adib, one of the researchers working on WiTrack, the transmitted radio waves are “structured in a particular way to measure the time from when the signal was transmitted until the reflections come back.” Because the three receivers are spaced apart, it’s possible to triangulate the delay of these reflected signals, to build up a 3D map. Developers say, this system works accurately in the range of 10-20cm (4-8inch).

Research team of MIT has also developed some tracking systems to track through the walls, but in which one system consisted on a very large antenna while second worked with WiFi. Both systems were enormous in size as well as poor in performance.

WiTrack tech can be popular in future due to its cheap cost and good performance, but there is not any likelihood of its usage in future. Kinect is more efficient than WiTrack as it can track up to millimeter. Moreover, WiTrack can only track one person or object in one time. Developers say they can increase its efficiency to track more than one things. In the last I would like to  say if this system isn't as per our requirements then at least we can utilize this tech for some other usages such as when person reaches at home light turn on automatically.

Would Google abandon Nexus devices in favor of Google Play Editions?

Rumor has it that Nexus device will no longer be named that way, for Google is apparently pondering over abandoning the said line of stock Android phones. Instead, it is said to be thinking of launching Google Play Editions of popular handsets, and these devices are even set for a rebranding.

For those unaware, Nexus products are devices which are infused with pure and unaltered versions of the Android OS, and they are manufactured by other OEMs as ordered by Google. They are subsidized products, and hence are available in the market at comparatively affordable prices.

Would Google abandon Nexus devices in favor of Google Play Editions?

Google Play Editions on the other hand, are flagship devices of bigwig companies which are given the stock Android treatment. Since Nexus devices eat up a chunk of the market share, major OEMs like Samsung, LG, HTC and others find their flagships often lagging behind.

Apparently, these companies could also be compelling Google to do away with the Nexus line owing to this reason. The tweet which is the backbone of this whole speculation comes from renowned leakster Eldar Murtazin, and points out that the Nexus line will be eliminated in 2015, and be replaced by the Google Play Edition line in a rebranded form.

Fans of the Nexus lineup would be extremely unhappy with this move, but it seems market pressure and a number of other things are forcing Google to go with the decision. Their saving grace could turn out to be Google-owned Motorola which is doling out attractive nearly-stock Android devices right now.

Samsung is preparing to launch Galaxy Glass

Samsung is preparing to launch Galaxy Glass

Samsung was early to market with a smartwatch in the Galaxy Gear, and now it looks like it might be one of the first in the mix with a glasses-based computing device. A new report from the Korea Times (via Verge) suggests that Samsung is currently developing a Google Glass competitor, which is in fact provisionally named “Galaxy Glass,” set for launch in September at the annual IFA tech conference.

Google has yet to put a firm timeline on the consumer launch of its own Google Glass wearable computer, which is available to developers and early adopters via Google’s ‘Explorer’ program. Some reports had suggested a general launch for late 2013, but then later information from Google revised the release timeline to sometime in 2014. Samsung could conceivably beat Google to the punch, but as we saw with the Galaxy Gear, that’s not necessarily a good thing.

The Gear was likewise telegraphed before its actual launch, with Samsung coming right out and admitting the device was on the way at IFA. This time around, there’s no named source discussing the device, but the Korea Times does quote a Samsung official as saying that the potential in the market is huge, and that Samsung is very interested in getting a first-mover advantage in the space.

As for what Samsung Glass would do, it sounds like it would essentially provide a basic heads-up display for your smartphone on your face, pushing notifications, music playback information and basic controls to the lens of a head-mounted display.

Samsung getting in among the early crop of device-makers hoping to ride this trend is in keeping with its recent strategy, which seems to be one of putting everything they can out as a shipping product. It’s a plan that gets them lots of props as a company eager to pursue innovation and drive new product development, but the first-mover advantage has only questionable use value if these first generation products keep failing to impress.

Both the smartwatch and the eyeware-based computing models are interesting because OEMs seem to be pursuing them fairly aggressively without any evidence that this is a direction consumers necessarily are interested in. We’ll apparently see in September if Samsung has managed to build a face computer that moves the tech forward, however.

Google Buys Artificial Intelligence (AI) firm, DeepMind in 400 Million dollars

Google Buys Artificial Intelligence (AI) firm, DeepMind in 400 Million dollars

The recent chatter regarding Google’s acquisition-driven moves to become the world leader in artificial intelligence will likely increase now that the company has reportedly acquired DeepMind for $400 million.

According to a report from Re/code, Google has confirmed the acquisition of the London-based artificial intelligence firm, but would not offer any further details.

Very little has been publicly shared regarding exactly what DeepMind does, adding to the mystery surrounding Google’s artificial intelligence aspirations.

On the DeepMind website, the company says its mission is to combine “the best techniques from machine learning and systems neuroscience to build powerful general-purpose learning algorithms.”

This latest acquisition builds on other recent robotics and artificial intelligence-oriented buys by Google including DNNresearch, Wavii and Boston Dynamics.

5G Network 1,000 Times Faster Than 4G Developed by South Korea

 5G Network 1,000 Times Faster Than 4G Developed by South Korea

The country's Ministry of Education, Science and Technology (MEST) announced Wednesday that it would invest 1.6 trillion won ($1.5 billion) to develop 5G technology that will be 1,000 times faster than 4G LTE and quick enough to allow users to download full-length films (usually an 800-megabyte file) in one second.

MEST plans to roll out a trial 5G service by 2017 and have a commercial service available by 2020. In addition to developing the 5G network itself, MEST will prioritize developing new, key features for 5G, including Ultra-HD streaming, hologram transmission and upgraded social networking services.

South Korea's government estimates that projected sales for related industries that would use the 5G infrastructure could reach up to 331 trillion won ($310 billion) from 2020 to 2026. MEST wants to implement the plan with cooperation from operators like SK Telecom and Korea Telecom as well as Samsung and LG.

Samsung announced the results of its own early 5G tests last May. The company claimed that it managed to produce a 1.056 Gigabit per second signal to a distance of up to 2 kilometers (1.2 miles) and has similar plans to have the service commercially available by 2020.

The company's tests used 64 antennas to get around the problems with the high frequencies needed to transfer data at higher speeds by rapidly switching between which transmitter and receiver beams carried data depending on which could get the clearest signal.

Despite the company's claims regarding using 5G as a potential network, the lack of published confirmation has drawn skepticism from some in the tech industry.

Just after Samsung made its announcement, Forbes denounced Samsung's claims as "hyperbole," taking issue with the technology Samsung claimed it used, especially the vague details surrounding the 64 antennas used in Samsung's tests.

Though some may write off talk of 5G as being little more than a marketing gimmick, other regions are also looking into developing the next-generation network. According to the Digital Agenda for Europe, the EU has their sights set on 5G and also hopes to be ready to support the increase in traffic expected in 2020.

Common Computer Speed Tips which don’t work at all

Common Computer Speed Tips which don’t work at all

Friends as everyone knows this is an era of speedy and fast. Everyone wants to accomplish his task within the click of his finger. If in this fast running era your computer works slowly then it means you are off the race. On internet you will find scores of tips to boast the performance of your computer. But there are several tips which don’t work as a matter of truth. For that very reason there’s no any benefit of applying such tips.  So friends I would like to introduce you mainstream tips which don’t affect on the speed of your computer at all:

SSD Optimization

Friends the first tip of embarking your computer performance is defraging SSD. Typically you may be suggested by your friends this tip, but as matter of fact this tip doesn't work at all. By defraging SSD again and again its life reduces. Some defragement software also feature to optimize SSD to enhance card speed, but friends believe me this is not true. Having applied this tip you might feel a little improvement in your computer speed, but this is only for the time being. So I will suggest you that you don’t go for this tip as it will affect on your computer device.

Do empty folder & increase your computer speed

You will see several tips about making empty some folders of Windows and it will increase your computer speed. For instance, folder “Prefetch” that keeps the details of programs and Windows in it. Make sure by deleting these details will not get you speed in your computer. Actually this folder erases the data automatically after 130 entries. Friends if you manually delete the data of this folder then your computer will take long to boot.

Deleting Windows registry

I have seen many programs claiming that our program deletes registry data and gives you good speed of your compute. I am agreed that registry editor consists on unnecessary entries of Windows and programs. Whenever you uninstall any program from your computer, its information and other details remain in registry editor. Deleting all this data can only increase the space, but not speed. This tip can work at that time when your system is about 10 years old and there is a massive data available in your registry editor due to installing and uninstalling many programs in this period.

Defragement Android Devices

There are many applications available  on play store which you will see claiming about increasing speed by defraging memory. In android device sold state memory is used that’s why there is not any difference in computer speed by defraging SSD. All such sort of apps are useless because they don’t speed up your device after applying them.

Killing Application Process

You can only give relax to your device resources for the time being by killing the process of the application, but after a while this app turns on again. These all above tips don’t work for increasing computer speed. Hopefully I will share with you useful tips to increase computer speed in my next post .

Thank you friends and hope you liked my post. Please share your feeling or opinion about post writing in the comment box.

The first pen drive for android smarphone or Tablet by Sony

Japanese Electronics maker, Sony, has launched the world’s first pen drive, which can be connected to your Android smartphone or tablet. This new drive is a “2-in-1 device”, with MciroUSB and standard USB2.0 plugs into a tiny package allowing users to connect it with both desktop computers and smartphones.

 It is devised to grant flexibility to the Android users by maki9ng the file tarnsfer between mobile devices simple and brink, witout the requisite of any Wireless Connectitivity. In roder t omake it work with your device, your phone must need to run Android 4.0 or higher since it is explicitly intended for devices with Android’s On The Go (OTG) connectivitiy, which is usual in most phones running Android 4.0 Ic Creams Sandwich and above.

These Dual-USB pen drives have a Black base, but their locking caps are available in three different colors including white, black and blue, with the capacities 8, 16 and 32GB.

LG announced to launch Chrombase, an all-in-one Google chrome OS desktop

LG announced to launch Chrombase, an all-in-one Google chrome OS desktop

Chrome OS was not introduced in desktop computer as an OS before LG became pioneer in this step.  Recently LG announced to launch Chorme OS base computer. Chrome OS is a Google’s operating system and I  personally think that LG wants to complete with Microsoft Windows.

The new cutting-edge tech is similar to Mac computer in which you will find all-in-one desktop with built-in moniter. A cute full HD screen in 21.5-inch size will absorb your attention. LG will use Intel Celeron processor , 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage and also will come with a mouse and keybnoard. Additionally, the computer comes with and HDMI port, three USB 2.0 ports, a USB 3.0 prot and an Ethernet port. In the last two years, Chromebook laptops have begun to make a dent in the sales of Windows machines.

In addition to LG, Google has also worked with HP, Acer Dell, Samsung and others to release Chrome OS desktops and laptops. Chrome OS computers can’t install software like Microsoft Word or Adobe Photoshop. Instead, everything is done through the Chrome Web browser.

Google boasts that the simplicity of Chrome OS doesn't require users to constantly update the software or their security because the company does everything for them through the cloud. LG plans to showcase the new machine at next month’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, where a price and release date are expected to be announced.
