Did Microsoft have a remarkable year or a not so good year? For a company as spreading as the developer of Windows, Office and the Xbox, in order to tell you, it will be hard net to crack. Microsoft presented host of headlines in 2013, but for many different reasons. In order to know whether or not the company is on the positive track, it favors to look at its current past.
Microsoft unfolded its next tech in 2012 with the introduction of Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8, 2012 was a giant year for Microsoft. But Microsoft also came across to accomplish its a lot of home word to make major changing this year.
When it completely overhauled its software platforms as well as its basic purpose, to transition from a software company to a "devices and services" company, as then-CEO Steve Ballmer explained it. Microsoft made some enormous plays, but they were long plays Microsoft made some big plays, and it would take time to see whether they would pan out. Microsod remained engrossed in its world throughout this year. Its fortunes in 2013 lent some insight into whether Microsoft's bets were well-placed and what it might do to stay in the game — and possibly even win it.
I have compiled major events and launches of Microsoft in 2013 as below:
1. Office 365 and the Subscription Model
When the latest version of Microsoft Office 365 was launched in January, the most important feature wasn't its optimization for the cloud and social networks or that it wasn't technically a Windows 8 app. Rather, the most noteworthy change was the business model. After years of selling Office as a standalone app, Microsoft switched to a subscription plan.
Now onward, buyers won't have to pay lump sun amount for Word, Excel and PowerPoint, buyers would pony up a few bucks a month or $100 a year to access them. The apps themselves also improved tremendously, with direct ties to Microsoft services, including SkyDrive, which got even better this fall with real-time online collaboration in documents.
2. The Surface's $900 Million Stumble
When Microsoft announced its Q4 2013 earnings in July, it dropped a monumental goose egg: The company was taking a $900 million reduction due to Surface RT inventory, essentially meaning it had produced far more Surface tablets than people wanted to buy. It wasn't hard to see that coming. Windows 8 was arguably fundamentally flawed, but Microsoft didn't do it any favors by christening a buggy, under performing device as its flagship product, with few apps of any relevance at launch. While software updates rapidly fixed most of the issues, the damage was done, and the ARM-based Windows RT operating system is all but dead because of it.
3. Office Arrives on iPhone and Android
Office is one of Microsoft's pillars, but it has faced fierce competition from Google, Apple and others, particularly in mobile. To face them directly, Microsoft finally opened up Office to new platforms, including iOS and Android. While the apps themselves are stripped down to the bare minimum for tiny mobile screens, Office's migration to competing platforms represents an "OS agnostic" view that would have been heresy in the company's heyday.
4. Facebook, Foursquare and Flipboard for Windows 8
At Microsoft's Build developer conference this year, Steve Ballmer announced that Windows 8, which so far had done nothing to prevent to slide of PC adoption, was finally attracting some big-name apps. The big Fs — Facebook, Flipboard and Foursquare — were all developing Windows 8 versions of their services.Even better, they all came through, sometimes in big ways. Facebook's Windows 8 app uses the wider screen of most Windows tablets well, Flipboard has a unique live tile, and Foursquare's app re-invents the location service as a powerful discovery engine. With A-list apps on board, the road is paved for other developers to ride into Windows 8. At least that's the hope.
5. Ballmer Steps Down
With summer winding down, Ballmer awakened a sleepy news cycle with the announcement that the Microsoft cofounder would step down as CEO within the next year. Rumors about the move had swirled for a long time, but it seemed Ballmer and Microsoft just couldn't quit each other. The scuttle but says Ballmer's departure planned, then accelerated once the Surface RT failure was apparent and the company's
Across-the-board restructuring, which began in July, was underway. Now the hunt is on for his successor, with former Nokia CEO Stephen Elop and Ford's Alan Mulally rumored to be leading the pack of contenders.
6. Microsoft Buys (Most of) Nokia
Apple has the iPhone. Google bought Motorola. But what about Microsoft, keeper of the Windows Phone flame? To really be a top-to-bottom master of services and devices, Microsoft needed a phone. Microsoft needed a phone. Rather than create its own hardware as it did with the Surface tablets, Microsoft opted to simply buy its closest partner, Nokia, by far the leader in Windows Phone hardware. The move made a lot of sense. The mobile market is nothing like the tablet market, and it's much better to rely on someone else's experience rather than reinvent the wheel. Considering the strategic partnership Nokia and Microsoft made in early 2011, this was simply the consummation of protracted courtship.
7. Windows Phone Goes Big
Nokia Lumia 1520
In early 2013, it was even money whether Windows Phone or BlackBerry would be the true "third alternative" in the war of mobile ecosystems. It's now clear that the Windows Phone has won that title, with fast-growing market share in most regions — even taking the No. 2 position in places such as
Latin America. With its
latest update, Windows Phone can now go toe-to-toe with Android in one of the
most popular mobile categories: phablets. Big-screen phones are a big deal
in China, and
probably a more than a few NBA locker rooms, and Windows Phone now has
models like the Nokia 1520 and 1320 to offer those markets. India
8. Windows 8.1 Arrives
Microsoft had a powerful operating system with Windows 8, but it was unfinished. Its multi-window mode, Snap, only worked with one size of window; you couldn't use custom images as Start screen backgrounds and working Word docs in SkyDrive was slow as hell. Windows 8.1 fixed all those problems and more while introducing several new features. In a symbolic gesture, Microsoft also brought back the Start button to the design of the desktop. It was almost functionally irrelevant, but it sent a message to users: Although we've already picked the road to travel on, we can still change lanes.
9. Surface, Generation 2
The original Surface RT may have been a failure, but its brother, the Surface Pro, was a much more successful product. Benefiting from a later release, meaning polished software and a more powerful processor, the Surface Pro received good reviews when it debuted in January and proved to be a more worthy flagship for Windows 8. That explains why Microsoft doubled down on the Surface concept and released second-generation models this fall. The new Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 also serve as flagships for Windows8.1, and the Haswell chip inside the Pro eliminates the biggest criticism of Gen 1: battery life. Are there enough apps and good feelings about Windows, though, to turn the Surface 2 into any kind of success? Microsoft badly needs it to be, but it will probably have to settle for "not a disaster."
10. The Xbox One
If Microsoft has any product with the kind of buzz and customer loyalty that Apple devices are known for, it's the Xbox. The Xbox 360 is one of the best-selling game consoles ever, and the new Xbox One looks to take its game play and versatility as a general entertainment gateway to the next level. Microsoft may have stumbled out of the gate with seemingly draconian downloading policies, but it quickly reversed itself, especially when Sony rubbed salt into the wound by promising to deliver a more gamer-friendly approach. The Xbox One now appears to be a more fully-formed console than its rival, the PlayStation 4, so Microsoft's Xbox loyalty may carry into

Screen mirroring is a technique through which you can mirror the screen of your smart device on a bigger display. The setup can be wired or wireless. Here we discuss the wireless method.
AirPlay was introduced with iOS 4.2 in 2010 to let people stream content from an iOS device to a PC/Mac or Apple TV. Some fames even offer a second-screen experience, displaying the game on yourTV with your phone acting as a controller. The option shows up automatically when using an app that supports AirPlay.
1. Install AirServer on your PC, which will act as an AirPlay receiver. If you are using a Mac, navigate to System Prefernces > Display > AirPlay Mirroring and jump to step 3.
2. Open AirServer.
3. Make sure both devices are on the same network (Wi-Fi/Bluettoth/Ethernet).
4. On your iOS device, swipe up from the bottom of your screen to access Control Center.
5. Tap AirPlay. You Should see a list of connectable devices.
6. Tap the name of the device you wish to AirPlay to. Tap mirroring. Once it is enabled, your iOS devices’s screen will be mirrored on your big screen.
7. To terminate the connection, simply disconnect from the network or terminate the app.
First, chek to see if your Android device supports sisplay mirroring. Go to Settings > Display, does it say, “Display Mirroring?” If so, your device suports it. CyanogenMod developer Koushik ‘Koush’ Dutta has demonstrated a working AirPlay mirroring solution for Android, but if you are not using the Cynogen Mod, your will need the doubleTwist app, along with the AirTwist add-on (paid upgrade) in order to use AirServer/ AirPlay to sync your devices.
- 1. Launch double Twist
- 2. Tap Settings
- 3. Tap AirTwist
- 4. Check the box net to AirTwist
5. Select “Approve” the Approve Network popup
6. Go to AirServer and search for your Android phone with the device name found on the settings screen.
Enjoy your mirroring experience
During the iOS 5 beta period, we covered how to mirror an iPad 2 with a TV using AirPlay and an Apple TV. With the release of the iPhone 4S, Apple brings the mirroring feature to its newest handset.
To get started, you will need an Apple TV with the latest software and an iPhone 4S, all hooked up to the same Wi-Fi network.
To mirror your iPhone 4S, you will need to double-click the home button, bringing up the app-switching tray. Swipe from left-to-right two times, revealing a volume slider and the familiar AirPlay icon.
Tapping on the AirPlay icon will reveal any Apple TV-compatible devices currently connected to the same Wi-Fi network as your iPhone 4S. Select the device to which you would like to mirror your iPhone 4S. Toggle the Mirroring switch to On.
Once mirroring is enabled, the status bar on your iPhone will turn blue and have an AirPlay icon located next to the battery meter. This serves as a reminder that everything you are currently doing on your iPhone 4S is being displayed on your TV.
Mirroring your iPhone 4S to a larger screen can come in handy for giving a presentation, showing off photos, taking a FaceTime call or even simply browsing the Internet. Mirroring works with both portrait and landscape modes.
To turn off mirroring, just repeat the steps above, but this time select iPhone on the AirPlay screen. The blue bar and AirPlay icon in the status bar should then disappear, indicating that you have successfully turned off mirroring.
Yeah friends I hope you liked my tutorial. Thank you

Friends you must have used balloons on your birthdays hanging them on the walls and doors. Normally balloons balloons are for children. Google also used balloons for a special purpose, not for its birthday. Google created Balloons to provide the internet access to those people who were deprived fro internet connectivity due to poverty, lack of infrastructure and a remote scale. This project of Google called "Project Loon" started in a Christ Church with Google's think tank. Firstly in New Zealand thirty balloons filled with helium gas sent in stratosphere at about 20 km (65,000 ft) height (which is twice higher than air craft fly) to examine the experiment.
After this experiment Google developed a big chunk of balloons for 5-7 Billion people to provide them internet in different countries. Balloons have a giant size. They transmit signals which are caught by antennas placed at workplaces and side of homes relay the internet. Since balloons can't stay at one place in the air that's why they're steerable and controlled from Google's Command Center. By this unique technology Google is able to produce 3G-like speed of the internet. AMAZING technology friends.
(3) GOOGLE DRIVELESS CARS
Google has a great vision to conquer the highest point of technology. Google prepared a driveless car to bring a revolution in automobiles world. X Lab of Google presented this idea and now a day busy in testing the driveless car with a company in Nevada, Florida and California in the US. At the moment Google hasn't unfolded that when it will launch these driveless cars in the market and commercialize them. According to reports, company may use for the local public transportation such as taxi etc.
Thank you very much friends.
